So with the cold weather, questions about how to keep your baby warm is an important question to ask – how to keep your little one warm when outside playing, in the car as it’s still heating, […]

daylight savings

Before having kids, I LOVED when it was time to fall back every year, because that meant an extra hour of sleep! And who doesn’t love more sleep?? As a parent, however, daylight savings makes us shake our fists at whoever decided it was a good idea to change the clocks twice a year, and […]

Hatch Rest Toddler

I am definitely a minimalist at heart and really don’t like having extra or unnecessary things around the house – for me, Jason, or the kids.

bedtime routine

When I was first told 3.5 years ago that I should establish a nap and bedtime routine with my baby girl, I was a little overwhelmed. What would we do? What song should we sing? Would this really matter for a newborn? What if we somehow messed it up? So Jason and I chatted through […]

sleep training with special needs

As a special needs parent, you have a lot on your plate.  You are a parent, teacher, therapist, chauffeur, nutritionist, lawyer, nurse, and more.  It’s all the more important that you are getting the rest you need to be the best parent for your child.
