Millard toddler travel mattress

I don’t know about you, but when my daughter transitioned from her crib to her big bed, I wasn’t quite sure what traveling would look like. She had slept in a pack ‘n play until that point and she still moved around a lot while sleeping, so I wasn’t ready to just stick her in […]

daylight savings

Raise your hand if you think daylight savings should just be done away with! (You can’t see me right now, but my hand is raised high.) The good news is that “springing forward” isn’t nearly as brutal as “falling back”; the clock will say 7:00 am when you wake up rather than 6:00 am, woohoo! […]

A classic one is when your child starts calling you “Mom” or “Mommy,” rather than “Mama.” One that totally blindsided me was starting to use two piece pajamas rather then onesie pajamas. Then there are a lot of milestones parents look […]

toddler sleep regressions

Something about the term “sleep regression” still makes my skin crawl, even as a sleep consultant. Although we often hear about baby sleep regressions, toddler sleep regressions are just as real, and honestly, sometimes more challenging!

sleep training plans

When I had my oldest, I had certainly heard of “sleep training,” but the only thing I knew about sleep training was that you had to lay your baby down, walk away, and let them cry until they fell asleep (also known as the Cry-it-Out Method).
