    Friends are having a joint 30th birthday party. (married couple) My friends have just about everything. But I thought of putting together a memory jar, get everyone in the party to write fond memories of the 2 of them, or a quote, and give them a jar of fond memories.
    I think that gift would definitely trump any other materialistic present! What a fantastic idea. It's thoughtful and personal and just priceless.

    Thank you. I always freak out about presents. Especially since this one is my best friend.

    Kids are at the inlaws house and I was planning a sleep in but got woken by a message at 7:30!

    Other then a couple of 5-10 minute cat naps, 6 Day Old DS has been awake for 7 hours from 9pm-4am.
    There is nothing obviously wrong with him ! He's had a nappie change x3, been fed several times, been carried, burped, rocked, wrapped, swaddled, unwrapped, talked to, massaged and I even tried bribery but he doesn't understand the concept yet!
    DP and I have tried taking it in turns to settle him but nothing works!
    I'm about ready to give up, get out of bed and just start the new day!

    It's hard in those first couple of weeks- he is adjusting as much as you are.

    I spent the first few weeks with DD on our recliner, all night long. She slept ok during the day, nights were always hard.

    Love to dream swaddle ups are awesome. Have you found yours yet?

    And, don't feel as though you can't call for help!!

    @firsttimemum34 can you baby wear? It has saved my sanity so many times during nights like yours!

    The first few weeks with DS1 I used to take it in turns with my sister and DF staying up with him. We would watch Disney movies until he fell asleep. (Obviously he didn't watch them but it made me feel better about having to be awake.)

    Obviously all he needed was for me to complain to go to sleep! I wrote that vent he slowed down and by the time I'd got up to get another water he was asleep!
    In one final act of "this baby will go to sleep" we found his swaddle - put away sensibly it was! And propped his bassinet up a little like he liked it in the hospital and he slept - for 5 hours giving us some sleep.
    Now dishes and washing are done. Tea is organised thanks to frozen meals and I'm showered and wearing actual clothes! This isn't too bad after all... She says until 1am!

    I've just come off 3 nights and have slept poorly today and feel completely zapped of energy. I feel like I need a shower to wake myself up a bit more but I just can't be bothered. I hate having no energy after crap sleep.

    Trying to decide.

    3 x 12 hr shifts + 2 days of uni

    Or

    5 x 8 hour shifts + 2 days of uni.

    The 3 + 2 is tempting... But I don't know if they'll be the same days, so I'm possibly going to be spending 12 hours at work then 6 at uni.

    It does guarantee me two days off though, whereas the other option doesn't guarantee me any.
