After a baby, diplo or not, sleeping isn’t quite what it used to be. Of course there are the feedings and changings, but there are also the little squeaks, noises, sighs and all of those other little sounds that no one tells you that you will develop an ear for with radar precision. You basically will sleep with one eye open for the forseeable future.
When it comes to sleeping, diplo-baby is no fool. You will read in all the books and magazines and websites, that babies must sleep in austerity. No soft mattresses, no pillows, no blankets, no nothing. Just a firm plank, a military-tight organic sheet, and possibly a sleep sack. Frankly, it doesn’t sound like much fun to me, as I’m a nut for bedding – yes, I’m one of those people that iron my sheets. No, I’m not kidding. And no, I don’t think it’s a waste of time. And clearly, diplo-baby is my own flesh and blood as she clearly feels the same. Let’s just say the crib isn’t her favorite place to hang out, but bring her up on the bed and surround her with threadcounts and pillows, and she’s out for the count. (Safety note, if you do this with a baby, you must watch them like a HAWK to make sure they don’t get caught in any bedding or pillows – you will have to adjust from sleeping with one eye open to two.)
But we’re not complaining. We were lucky in that diplo-baby was sleeping 4-5 hour segments right from the start, then 5-6 and tonight we just had our first 8 hour segment. Hurrah! To celebrate, here are some shots from Elle Decor’s recent roundup of celebrity bedrooms that give us all something to dream about.
