Not even the tweet of a bird in flight escapes my daughter’s ears.
I have learnt many new things in the last three months. One of them being that babies with reflux are very light sleepers. At any slight noise Zoe’s eyes snap open, and as she’s yet to learn how to get herself back to sleep, there’s been many frustrating moments when the fully sick car has sped up our street, the excitable uni students/college students have cackled past her window, or on garbage day.*
That was until I discovered the usefulness of white noise. I switch the radio onto the fuzzy, snow storm sound and that usually gets her through most of the sounds that accompany inner west living.
*NB// The racket that accompanies college handball is yet to wake her.
