How we ended up co-sleeping and why I’m ok with that

I’ve not written about our daughter’s sleep before on here, but over the last two years, it’s been a constant topic of discussion, thought and anxiety. It’s only in the last 6 months that I’ve become comfortable with where we’re at in terms of sleeping and have taken the pressure off of ourselves. We ended up co-sleeping and we’re ok with that. I’ll go back to the beginning…

Having a baby that doesn’t sleep through the night

So chances are you’re a parent yourself, or perhaps you’re pregnant and looking forward to the joys of parenthood. Either way, congratulations – it truly is the best thing in the world. Bloody hard, but the best thing without a doubt!

Well you may or may not know that one of the most prolific questions out there for any new mum is “is s/he sleeping through yet?”.

A Family Lifestyle Photoshoot

Those of you that know me, will know that I bloody love photography, in fact, I’m probably a little bit obsessed! I like to take photographs and I like to capture moments. Especially significant moments.

Photography was one of the most important things about our wedding day (we had an engagement session too), we documented our honeymoon, we had a wonderful newborn session (minutes after I gave birth) and I photograph our beautiful daughter every day. In fact my hubby often roles his eyes when I get the camera out or snap another shot on my phone.

So it only seemed right that we’d document our little family, in our home, so that one day we’d look back on it with our children and show them what life was like. Continue reading
