Things I had to Google about motherhood during October…
Oh the joys of my search history.
This month has been particularly cruel to me on the motherhood side of things, but I’m sure you know that if you follow me on social media so I won’t moan too much here. I’m going to share my search history (the relevant searches anyway!) for your viewing pleasure. These are genuine, I’m sorry if my stupid shows!

As you can probably tell, sleep had a whole lot to do with last month. Some nights I was down to two hours and it was thought.. I’m pretty sure it won’t be the only time sleep deprivation kicks in and I wanted to research in some sleep techniques.
I don’t know how comfortable I am with leaving Baby Button to cry – so no, not that method. Co sleeping? No. He’s been in his own cot since he was born, I’m not undoing all that work. The only other thing I can do is let him lead and go with it I suppose. It’s hard sometimes remembering that he’s only been on this planet for ten months, he’s doing a whole host of other cool stuff — who needs sleep anyway?
