Sleep Bestie - you don't have to do it all alone

Momma, I have been there...

Another night filled with cries coming from the monitor and that sinking feeling in your stomach that you have to get up and tend to your child AGAIN. You’re So exhausted you don’t even  know what day it is. The bags under your eyes are a constant reminder of  the sleep you’re missing out on. There are so many things you need to tend to during the day and you just can’t even! 

You often question if you’re a good mom because the long nights are taking a toll on your mental health. You feel guilty for not being able to keep up with it all. You feel guilty for not loving every moment with your child. You feel guilty for complaining because you do love being a mom and you love your child with your whole heart.
