Guys, Rose sleeps like a dream. Although at first I had seriously no idea how to get a newborn to sleep (It’s crazy how much you forget between children, even when they are only 16 months apart!), I have successfully navigated safely through the second round of sleep training thus far. Reason 1: Rose is… Continue reading Sleep Training: the sequel
I am way overdue for an update for A: how sleep training with Thea is going and B: what I am doing with Baby #2 to hopefully avoid the pitfalls I ran into with Baby #1. This post will be for point A. (Otherwise this post is going to be insanely long). Thea is a… Continue reading Sleep Training. Where are we now?

Tired. I feel like all my “issues” are coming to a head all at one time.… Continue reading Sleep…such a beast
Months ago, I had no idea that teaching a baby to sleep was even a thing. If anything, I just assumed they just slept or that they would get into the rhythm eventually. For us, that wasn’t the case.
