a condition of body and mind such as that which typically recurs for several hours every night, in which the nervous system is relatively inactive, the eyes closed, the postural muscles relaxed, and consciousness practically suspended.
So according to the dictionaries description of what sleep is… I will go on record and say its been over 6 years since I have had a consistent amount of sleep at night. Being a mom one of the first things you learn is that sleep is deprived and that you are capable of accomplishing a lot of things on little to non sleep! Thankfully my first two where what I would say good sleepers. I mean neither one slept entirely through the night till they were almost one but we never had to get up more than a couple times a night with them even when they were teething. Than came our baby girl! She came home from the hospital sleeping through the night and every morning I woke up I would roll over and say to my hubby “this is too good to be true”. I didn’t know what to do with myself. Did I really have a baby who was going to sleep through the night right from day one?! Well friends, mama always knows right! and sadly we hit week 6 of the “honeymoon” phase and the sleepless nights began and let me tell you she made up for the 6 weeks she slept through! She isn’t my first new born she isn’t even my third and somehow she had me stumped I couldn’t figure it out! I humbly took her to the paediatrician to make sure everything was fine, I talked to a sleep coach, I read lots and lots of books but nothing would help! It was considered a good night if I was up 5 or less times! Thankfully there was never a night that I didn’t get some sleep but there were plenty of nights where my sleep consisted of 20 minute intervals and when you have to wake up and deal with 2 busy toddlers in the morning it makes functioning day after day like that difficult! I feel like it was more mentally exhausting for me than physically! Mama guilt set in and I knew I needed to do something to help my baby sleep for her sake and for mine! I started seeing other bloggers and mamas talking and posting about this new product called a DockATot and I was so intrigued. I started reading up about it and I knew I had to give it a try! My order was delivered in just a couple days and I was so excited to try it out and really put it to the test! I will admit I was skeptical. I had already tried so many things and nothing worked so I wasn’t too sure how this little dock would….but…. IT DID! She now successfully sleeps through the night and this mommy is over the moon happy! I am just disappointed I didn’t discover it sooner! One of the best parts about the DockATot is that it is portable! We have been able to take it when we are travelling and it fits perfectly into a pack and play! Baby girl has no problem sleeping anywhere now! I know some of you mama’s are now dying to try one of these amazing Docks and because I love mine so much I want one of you to have one as well so…. I AM GIVING ONE AWAY! One lucky winner will receive one DockATot Deluxe Dock in Pristine White. As you will notice from my photos I have two covers.
