We had fair warning coming into things that sleep was going to be hard to come by. To be honest I think we’ve probably been pretty luck with the amount of sleep we have been getting – so we can hardly complain.
We’ve found that we cope ok with tiredness through the day – and are able to operate pretty much as normal. It’s at night time where things start to get weird.
There have been a number of occasions where both of us have said and done things in a semi-delirious state through the night. It’s as though we’re operating in some kind of alternate reality, twilight zone.
On separate occasions we have both woken up with a start and started on autopilot going through the motions getting ready for a feed – only to realise shortly afterwards it is at least an hour until we need to wake PlusOne up.
There have also been various conversations only half remembered in the morning, which seemed of utmost importance at the time. It has certainly been interesting.
But I wouldn’t change any of it.
