Am I The Only One?

My baby is ten, he’s a lot of years past waking in the middle of the night for a feed, but I remember those times fondly, Am I The Only One?

Having been a chronic insomniac for the majority of my life being awake in the middle of the night was nothing new to me, Am I the Only One?

I hear a lot of people talking about being woken by a crying baby, being dog tired, and wishing for the times when their baby sleeps through the night, not I, Am I The Only One?

I loved those middle-of-the-night feeds. The whole house is still, there’s no obligation to be super-mom at 3am, BBC World is on in the background, and there’s just you and the baby. I could almost feel the bond between us strengthen during these times. I miss that time. Am I The Only One?
