In a few days, every parent's most dreaded morning of the year will again be upon us. The end of Daylight Saving Time.
So you have a new baby. Congrats! You're suddenly immersed in snuggles and sweetness and ooey-gooey adorable baby sounds and smells..... oh, and probably also seemingly constant fussiness and your baby's desire to sleep only when held, am I right?!
Why does my baby cry all day? Is my baby getting enough to eat? Am I overfeeding my baby? Why won't my baby sleep? Why hasn't my baby pooped?! You've heard it before, "every baby is different". But now you're experiencing lots of new (and often hard) things. Where do you turn?
If you're a new(ish) parent, you've probably seen posts about the new SNOO Smart Sleeper by now. In a nutshell, it's a beautifully designed, high-tech sleeper that promises to help you and your baby sleep better. It "listens" to your baby's cries, responding with gentle rocking movements and white noise to soothe your baby back to sleep. Baby is soothed back to sleep, parents get to keep resting... sounds like a win-win! Right?!
We get it mom and dad, you're feeling exhausted. When you bring home your newborn, it's difficult to get a sleep pattern under control. The whole household gets a little disrupted during this new transition and it's normal to be operating on a whole new level of tired.
