So, I’m brand new here at GiftTree, as well as being a new mom. My 9 month old daughter is going through a really tough phase that I know many parents struggle through, the not sleeping phase. I am completely exhausted! Not only am I trying to negotiate a new working environment and learn my job, but I have to accomplish this with only a few hours of completely interrupted sleep a night. Do you seasoned moms or dads out there have any suggestions?
One idea I’ve heard about is the Lullaby Lamb. One of the great perks of working here is that we have a lot of the items available to look at and test. When I first saw this little guy, I really liked how simple and old school it looked. Then, I could not believe how incredibly soft it is. I mean like butta! I wasn’t sold yet though. Most of the time I find the “soothing sounds” in similar items I’ve checked out, are not so soothing but actually quite annoying, but these were simple and nice. Also, my little girl finds that she must travel from one end of the crib to the other like a little baby NASCAR or something, but with the Velcro strap on the back, this little lamb won’t be tempted to get on for the ride. I am excited to give this to my little one and to try out some of the other baby gifts.
Seriously, this working mom could use some words of wisdom from you parents who have been there, done that. My dreams of solid slumber are depending on you!
