Every day someone asks me if I'm getting any sleep with a baby. Yes... just no more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. Trust me, I'll take what I can get! It will be a different story if I can still function without my afternoon catnaps when I got back to work.
These "supersoft" pjs are my favorite for spring and summer and live up to the name. I would be lying if I said I was wearing a lacey bralette underneath now... replace that with a sexy nursing bra. (One of my friends always make fun of my sleep "tux" when we travel together, a quote from this scene from The Heat. Haha!)
So, what else do I need to make the most of my sleep?
- I never go to bed at night (even if it's just a few hours) without washing my face and slathering on my Beautycounter moisturizer and face oil. Always put on moisturizer before oil otherwise it won't penetrate through to your skin, a tip I learned from this Allure article.
- I am addicted to Lexi's white noise machine and will have to buy another when she moves into her own room.
- I toss, turn and drool in my sleep. When I wake up the front of my hair usually looks like a mullet. I have unsuccessfully tried different ways to get my hair to stay in place while I sleep so I don't have to restyle it in the morning. However, lately the Skinny Confidential's Sleep Bun Tutorial has been working sometimes. All you need is an alligator clip.
Target has a similar version of the pjs for half the price. I have the long sleeve and pant version. They don't wash as well as the Victoria's Secret version but a good alternative. Also, coming this fall...
Am I missing out on a sleep essential? (Besides drugs?)
