What’s with all the noise?

I am well aware that before becoming a parent I was naive to many things it would entail. After 5 weeks I still am! However, I was prepared for crying; To an extent I was prepared for more crying than we’ve had to endure so far. What I hadn’t realised is how much babies snuffle and grunt when they are sleeping.

The last few nights, H has been going back to sleep after her 4am-ish feed but then spends the rest of the ‘night’ through until our 7am get-up dramatically flailing her arms, huffing and grunting. So whilst she sleeps away, Sam and I keep getting woken up by sporadic bursts of sound. She’s also got stronger and makes quite a noise when she thumps her arms against the side of her crib or the mattress.

Ultimately I’m just glad that she is getting some sleep. But I really hope I learn to block out these new noises because quite frankly I would like to sleep then too!
