    And this is exactly why I haven't read one, that and the fact I haven't slept a full night since I was 4 months pregnant haha

    We wouldn't have anything to talk about as well!

    And no reason for wine. Mmmmm.. wine. Cannot wait for a teeny little glass after bub is born.

    Maybe you need to go out with a fellow hubber and get your wine on

    Dudette! We could talk about far more interesting topics... like wine? Or what wine goes with what food?

    The last time I had a good night's sleep was the night before I went into labor with DS. I remember it so well because I had pregnancy insomnia with him as well. It was like my body decided to give me a tiny reprieve before it sent me on the ride of my life.

    What I wouldn't give for a nice glass of wine. Or a g&t.

    The other night DH decided to get experimental and made a latte martini in front of me, I was like 'dude. You are cruel.'

    Default Not sleeping and not coping- help

    A good sleep book has a bunch of ideas that you can fit into your parenting toolkit and draw out as needed. The more books - or the more you consult others with a wife range of views, the bigger your toolkit. There's no set prescription unfortunately it's up to parent to analyse a situation and draw on their toolkit to respond accordingly. The bigger the toolkit the quicker it *can* be to pinpoint an issue and respond accordingly. The smaller a parents toolkit (eg by refusing to read anything or genuinely consult and swap ideas with others - not saying that's what you've done at all) the more difficult it *can* be. It's not easy by any means - it can be very difficult when you have other things on your plate (other kids to look after etc). A one stop prescription would if course be nice ....

    At least my DH has been pretty much drinking beer (some scotch here and there). If he started drinking wine again I would cry!

    I was kidding lol.

    But in all seriousness once I read sleeping like a baby and read that my baby is normal for waking, wanting comfort from me/DH by sleeping nearby, feeding to sleep is normal etc etc - well that was the book for me.

    I relaxed and went with it after that.

    Haha! I think he realized it was pretty mean! He's been mostly sticking to beer or a cheap bottle of red or the occasional whiskey, under strict instructions to not open any nice bottles!
