The first month…

I can’t decide if

I need a hug,

a large coffee,

six shots of vodka or

two weeks of sleep!

Well, the first month your lack of sleep is so important that you think it’s only what you need. Until you get there, you don’t actually realise that sleep is a fundamental need. You think “When I was younger – wait, that sounds really bad… – I used to party all night and go straight to work without sleeping. Finger in the nose!”. Except that you probably have forgotten that the following weekend you enjoyed a good 16 hours sleep…

Even if you are able to take micro-nap during the day, as being able to fall asleep deeply in 2 minutes becomes a priority, it doesn’t replace real night sleep. Here we’re talking 2-3 hours sleep at night (not even in a row) and it is pretty tough. It makes you cry. Real tears. It makes you literally crazy. I remember feeling completely empty and being unable to think.

Liam gave me my first 6 hours sleep one month and a half after he was born. And I experienced again pure joy!

So yes, during the first month, you might need all of it: hug, caffeine, alcohol and most of all… a good night sleep!
