Our 3 week old daughter sleeps in a Snuzpod attached to our bed... we live in a small 2 bed house
My husband has always snored... it’s like sleeping next to a respiratory machine from a hospital... so much so it wakes the baby!
When the baby wakes up for night feeds (Breastfeeding).... they fall back into a light sleep - but my husband snores his head off during this period and as a result baby is woken from milk sleep/light sleep and wants to go back on the boob staying awake and it’s a vicious cycle!
She wants to stay in my arms until in a deep sleep... but it’s hard to get her into a deep sleep as she is woken up during her light sleep my his snoring!
What can I do?
I wake him and he gets extra grumpy and angry at me saying there is nothing he can do about snoring it’s relentless
Geez no way i could cope with that. Dh snores and i wear ear plugs as a result but not to the extent it keeps ds awake. Tbh if he wont DO something aka nose strips or see a doc then he has to move for all your sanity
Video him snoring. Play it back with baby shown being woken. Either he watches the video and agrees to see Gp pronto or you are forced to rethink sleeping together. In the meantime if he is thinking of his snoring impacting baby and your feed- sleep routinue and your bloody sanity, he thoughtfully sleeps elsewhere....,
Can you play white noise? I wore earplugs for 15 years and was so used to it that when baby was born I couldn’t handle all the little house noises and birds etc but didn’t want to wear earplugs with baby there. Plus DH snores but only occasionally. I play rain white noise all night (an app called sound sleeper) and we ALL sleep better including baby!
He needs to see a GP as there may be things he can do you help. My dh lost a bit if weight and had surgery on his nose! I used to wear ear plugs but don't have to any more. He still snores sometimes but mainly if he's had a drink or is lying on his back
