My junior or senior year of college I was hanging out with a friend who had just come back from a baby shower. I had never been to a baby shower before so I was asking her all about it, and she mentioned some of the more seasoned moms sharing advice, her favorite being: “Say […]

One of my favorite aspects of newborn life is that sweet little baby burrito I get to snuggle. Swaddling is such an important piece of newborn sleep, but it’s also something that gets misused! With my first, we swaddled her for naps and night time for four+ months. I actually remember attempting to transition her […]

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” I absolutely love this time of year and the excitement that builds as the holidays draw near, however there is also a lot of hustle and bustle that can come with it. And if you have young children, the stress around how they’ll do with all of […]

There is a big misconception around infant and child sleep that some kiddos are just good sleepers and some are not, and that they’ll eventually teach themselves to fall asleep. Which then equates to, sorry parents, welcome to a potentially very long season of exhaustion, it’s just the way it is, good luck. I’m here […]
