"Babies don't just sleep!" | Christine Brown's wake up call

Name: Christine Brown

Age: 44

Number of kids and ages: 7-year old twins!

Location: New Hampshire

The most surprising thing about being a first-time mom is that babies don't just sleep! I thought the expression "sleep like a baby" was a real thing, until I suffered from chronic sleep deprivation for 6 months, which negatively affected all areas of my life.

My expectation vs. experience breastfeeding was I thought breastfeeding would be easy and it would just work and I'd figure it out. I tried and tried, but it never worked for me for many reasons, which I learned about and processed during CLC training.

The best piece of advice about motherhood is Healthy sleep habits are taught - I recommend starting early! Babies can begin learning to be independent sleepers as early as 6 weeks old. This is also when they start to be able to make connections and follow cues so it is a perfect time to add a bedtime routine, full of predictability.
