If you read my blog you know that Summer doesn’t sleep very well. When we first got home from the hospital we were running on adrenaline. There were lots of visitors, lots of food being delivered and lots of help so the sleepless nights didn’t seem that awful. At the start of the second month, you convince yourself that the end is near and that in one more month you and your newest addition to the family will be sleeping through the night. Well month two came and went and I was still up with Summer at 10pm, 2am and 4am. With Isabella we tried to do it all on our own and she still is not a great sleeper so this time around we called in reinforcements. We hired a baby nurse to come three days a week from 10pm – 7am and it has been a game changer.
The first thing she told us to do was to get Dr. Brown’s bottles. I was willing to try anything to get some sleep so we overnighted a shipment of Dr. Browns and started with them the next day. Guess what? I’m not sure if it was the night nurse working her magic or the Dr. Brown’s working theirs but Summer slept from 12-6 after having her first bottle from Dr. Browns. I really put it to the test this weekend. My husband was out of town so I was able to set a schedule without any distractions for Summer. Saturday night she got her Dr. Brown’s bottle at 8:00pm and was down at 9:30 without a peep. And guess what?! She slept from 9:30 – 5:30 am and didn’t wake up once! While I can’t guarantee that Dr. Brown’s will work its magic with you I do highly recommend them and its the only bottle I will be using going forward. To all of my sleep deprived parents out there, or those just looking for bottle suggestions (there are sooooo many!) I suggest trying Dr. Brown’s Options and here are a few reasons why…
