Desperately Seeking Sleep

In just over two month, my girls will be four. Four years of age. As school beckons, their independence is at an all time high wanting to do everything for themselves, yet we still can’t manage a whole night sleep.

Desperately Seeking Sleep

With Charlie, it was a doddle. What can I say, the kid is a natural sleeper just like I was as a baby. We both love our kip and quite honestly need it otherwise we are incredibly grumpy. Throwing twins into the mix was always going to be crazy but almost four years down the line I never anticipated we would still be having issues. It’s incredibly rare that I ever wake up without a mini bed invader which more often than not is little P1. I’ve written before how people’s sympathy wanes when you are constantly moaning about your three year old not sleeping, opposed to the newborn days where people used to offer to help out a lot. I don’t drink coffee so most days I am completely and utterly winging it.

Last year we invested in a new bed. My husband has back troubles so he was looking at getting better support as he has a very physical job so a good mattress and bed is essential, whereas for me going from a double to a super king meant more space for the extra children that seem to creep into our bed!

So, what is the healthiest way to sleep?

If only she with the almost four year olds who don’t sleep knew eh?…Hopefully this video may help shed some light for us all.

I really should look more at the way I sleep and perhaps the way the girls sleep as their toddler beds are looking a little worse for wear. So whether it be a new bed for yourself, for your children or even an Adjustamatic beds for the elderly it really is crucial to make changes to our mattresses, pillows and sleeping position to get that much craved after good night sleep.
