fourth of july

For the first time since having kids, we braved the Fourth of July fireworks with our girls last summer (they were 3.5 and 1.5). And when I say we braved them, we went into DC and enjoyed THE fireworks on the mall! I was a little nervous for how it would go, because bedtime was […]

When my husband and I were getting married, we put a tent and some camping gear on our wedding registry. And rather than just putting a small two person tent on there, we put a six person tent on there, because we knew we wanted to continue camping when we had a family! Well, we […]

pacifiers and sleep

Pacifiers and sleep are a HOT topic. It seems as though some babies have a pacifier in their mouths all day long, some parents don’t want their little ones to get attached to their pacifier so they never use one at all, and most other people are somewhere in between. As a sleep consultant, I […]

nap routines

If you’ve done some digging into baby and toddler sleep, even just a little bit, you’ve certainly read about bedtime routines. Consistent bedtime routines are SO important, to help our littles ones mentally register that sleep is coming and for their physical bodies to continue preparing for a long stretch of sleep (think melatonin!).
