Johnson's Baby have named this Baby Lag and have some ways to help all parents (of Newborns or not!) deal with the lack of sleep. The first step is to work out how Baby Lagged the parents are, and on the Baby Lag Website there are some games based on reaction times, coordination and memory to work this out. I had a great time playing the games and found out that I'm sleep deprived. Then again, I already knew that!
Once you get your score there is a three step night time routine that if you follow for a week with your baby you will hopefully find it helps with helping your baby falling asleep and staying asleep. Which as we all know in those early months is such a blessing!
Dr Dev Banerjee (a famous Sleep doctor) gave an interview to Johnson Baby and he said that it's important that everyone who is looking after the baby follow the same approach as this will help the baby recognise those important sleep time signals, and that if possible you should ignore the dishes and the washing and catch up on sleep when the baby sleeps as that is what is important in those early days.
Go and take the Baby Lag test, read the ideas of how to help your baby sleep for longer and lets all try to lose that slightly glazed Zombie look new parents have.
