The doctors forgot to mention…

February 18, 2011

Our second child will soon be celebrating her first birthday.  For the first eight months she was a perfect example of an easy baby.  She ate well.  She pooped regularly.  She even slept at night (usually waking only once to feed).

Then everything changed.

By “everything,” I just mean the sleeping.  By “changed,” I mean she just stopped doing it.

Most of us have experienced a sleepless night and the groggy, unfocused consequences of the next day.  Studies show that test subjects subjected to 36 hours without sleep show impaired cognitive abilities and judgement.


My wife and I haven’t slept since mid-November.
