Do you use your laptop, watch movies, or feed Ryland in bed? Try to only do bed-things (ie: sleep/sex). White noise really helped me too

The first paragraph describes me completely with the addition of waking up not knowing where I am and who is in my bed.

You might try lemonbalm tea. It’s a natural, mild sedative from the mint family. I drink it when I’m, having troubles falling asleep.

Don’t drink anything but water after 7 and preferably no water after 9, don’t watch movies right before bed and I take melatonin, natural.

When I worked the early morning shift, 3:30am to noon, I had to go to bed at 6pm, so I took Melatonin. ITs OTC and natural.

newborn over here, too! Avoid blue light at night—f.lux for your computer screen, etc. Messes with your melatonin.

I use f.lux on my comp and phone to block the blue 2 hrs before bed. It messes with melatonin in the brain. I also take melatonin.

Try to use the bedroom for bed-things only (sleep/sex), not for caring about Ryland, working or surfing the web. Try to not use computer, tv
- Our bedroom is only for bedroom things. The only exception is reading. We’ve never even had a TV in it.
- I’m downloading f.lux right now. I’ve never heard of it.
- I don’t usually have too much trouble falling asleep (well, it typically takes 20-30 minutes. I don’t know if that’s normal or not). My big issue is waking in the night. I almost always got right back to sleep, though, and I often don’t even know that I woke.
- Would taking melatonin make it harder for me to wake up when I need to (i.e. when I would hear Ryland over the baby monitor)?
Thank you so much, everyone!
Oh, speaking of sleep, Ryland slept from about 9:30-6:30, so he gets all the awards.
