    On trying to sleep, that is. Just watched films on a loop on the laptop; I find if I treat it like an 'up all night no matter what' sort of event, I won't get in that state where I'm so desperate for sleep I'd sell my soul for a solid hour.

    Ah the early days oh how i miss them.... i spent many a night the first 6 weeks like that. Luckily my hubby works shifts and has lots of time off so basically i slept during the day when he was off lol. Not looking forward to it this time round with 2 toddlers as well x

    There is a god! Finally, a good night last night, he only woke up twice for feeds and went straight back to sleep. The perverseness of it all is I was too stressed to fall asleep for most of the night, waiting for those squealy noises that precede a wake-up - but still managed to get more sleep than usual.

    First it gets easier at 6 weeks approx then 3 months it becomes different.

    My nipples hurt for a very long time though despite right latch positioning etc, I have seen couple of consultants. It hurt like hell even to shower but it does get better and once you establish things and they start going longer periods at night, you will feel more human x
