Hi everyone, I'm in need of help with my rainbow baby. Here's a little background on me. I'm an indigo mom & a massage therapist/energy healer. I have a 10 year old crystal boy who has been a pleasure to raise. He made being a mom look easy & we just flowed naturally together. 6 months ago I gave birth to a wonderful baby girl. I assumed I would have another crystal child, but I think I knew during the pregnancy this was different. After having her I quickly realized she was not a crystal. She only requires 7-8 hours of sleep, she was born with 40% hearing loss & the dr's don't know how she recovered all of her hearing, she requires constant human interaction (even with those my son & I shy away from), she very active & bubbly (even without enough sleep), & she is fearless.
As I do admire all of her amazing qualities and am happy that I can be a little more relaxed with things like laundry detergent (my son was sensitive as a baby) I am slowly running out of energy due to lack of sleep. She may magically be able to go without sleep, but I am not that evolved yet. Also, what was once a peaceful laid back house has become a bit crazy because she needs constant human/animal interaction. We seem to be taking turns giving her attention (including the cat) to satisfy her needs. Anyone have any advice raising a rainbow child. My son seems to be able to handle her very well, but then again he's a crystal. I on the other hand am at a loss. It feels like my instincts to protect & nurture aren't exactly what she needs. My only experience is raising a crystal child. Any advice would help...especially about the sleeping issue. She may require very little sleep, but mom needs rest!!!
