Day three: Parenting on not enough sleep
I need my sleep. I am not one of those people who can get by on 3-4 hours and still be happy and chirpy. This may be compounded by the fact I don’t drink coffee (or tea), but regardless I need to be a functioning human being who is not irritable and angry all the time.
Cocculus is my saviour here. A remedy for “night watching,” when you have not had enough sleep because you are caring for others, it can help with headache, nausea, and irritability. Particularly when you are so sensitive that noise and touch make you incredibly irritable.
Cocculus definitely helped me be a better parent when my children were younger.
