Radio star Fifi Box reveals the struggles of being a mother during coronavirus blockage and having a baby who sleeps ‘no more than an hour’
During her coronavirus lockdown, Fifi Box revealed the struggle to be a mother to her two young daughters Daisy Belle, one and Trixie, seven.
The 43-year-old radio star shared a lengthy post on Instagram on Monday explaining how Daisy suffered from sleep regression and contacted a sleep consultant for help.
“I recently shared the struggles I had as a mother with a baby who had stopped sleeping in an enclosed space for more than an hour. I’m not very good at asking for help, and because I love my kids so much, I feel like it’s only my job to take care of them, ”she wrote.

She continued, “I was strangled to blame for abandoning both of them and I wasn’t good enough. But thanks to all the love and messages I received, I realized that I didn’t fail to ask for help. ‘
Fifi further said that she contacted a baby sleep consultant and that she “changed our lives.”
“Daisy sleeps in her bed all night, I stopped feeding her to sleep, she routinely sleeps happily at waking times instead of grizzling all day because she’s tired,” she wrote.

“And Trixie has her mom time back because I’m not attached to Daisy 24/7 so I can spend quality time with both girls,” she added.
The radio star also said that she had a good night’s sleep and that this “makes me a happy and present mom instead of being constantly stressed and tired.”
She also shared a selfie of herself lying in bed saying, “This was the first time I slept for 8 hours for over a year.”

“I was so happy that I don’t even care how swollen and unflattering this is, I had to capture the moment, I was a happy, well-slept mother.”
Fifi welcomed her youngest daughter in June last year with the help of IVF and an anonymous donor.
The identity of Daisy Belle’s father is not widely known, but former professional Ironman Grant Kenny is Trixie’s birth father.
