Find these cute baby sleeping quotes as you gaze at your little angel. Or funny sleeping quotes for babies when you know it’s going to be a long night.
Emotionally caught between blissful bonding moments and straight up just tired out of your mind moments, babies are an adventure and a blessing in one.
There really isn’t much that can compare to a beautiful sleeping baby. It is so pure and wonderful. It is such a “melt your heart” experience when a baby puts its complete trust in you and coos away in your arms.
Simultaneously, a sleeping baby also means you can either sleep, catch up with life, or regain your sanity.
Babies are not like human adults where you can command it to sleep when the rest of the world is sleeping. Did you know that the reason why babies have different sleep cycles is because they spend much less time in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Therefore causing a much shorter sleep cycle than adults (SOURCE).
As challenging as parenthood can get, it’s in that moment (when we see the little angel sleeping) that we are willing (and wanting) to do it all over again.
To encourage you that you are not alone, I’ve compiled some of the sweetest and funniest beautiful sleeping baby quotes. Use these sleeping baby captions for instagram or facebook. Trust me, mother’s unite and find encouragement in these little posts.
