Maddening Mummy

I drove mummy crazy, I didn't get back to sleep after the 4a.m. feed. She is so so so upset, not knowing what went wrong. It's been like that for the past few days. When she raises her voice at me, I'll smile, not knowing that I've been scolded. She felt like she's giving up on me each time it happens.

Mummy's prayer: Baby, it's maddening when you do this to me. I'm your mummy, and also a human with feel. I've sacrificed many things for you, especially my precious sleep. Won't you be like before when you could sleep through the night and soothe to sleep after feed and even a diaper change? I care for you day in and day out, without a pause. Please help mummy feel complete and happy taking care of you everyday. It's like learning to crawl, if I were to carry you all the time, you're not going to discover how to crawl, since you'll never be on the floor long enough to learn. Similarly, if I were to always rock you to sleep, you're not going to learn how to soothe yourself to sleep. Baby, please help mummy by helping yourself. Mummy loves you!
