We haven’t done it yet but it is in the near future. My son has started moving his toys from the living room to his bedroom. I’m not sure why... should I put a halt to that and move his toys back in the living room to prevent issues when we transition him into his toddler bed? He’s always had toys in his room, but mainly quiet toys and books. He recently moved his big bag of blocks and variety... More
My daughter just turned one on Monday. She was doing great going to sleep on her own and staying in her own crib. Lately she wakes up crying and sits up. She won’t go back down until I pick her up and take her to bed with me. She is getting her first tooth. I don’t know if it’s just a new thing and is teething related or some stage. Any advice would be welcome
Hi! I have a 15 month old girl and she has been given a bottle in her crib to help her fall asleep. I’m trying to get away from that. I’m thinking of trying a new routine like a bath then a bottle and read to her then brush her teeth and put her down but I’m curious as to what everyone else does. I really want to incorporate books because she won’t let me read to her unless she has a bottle
My 8 month old is able to turn on his side, and general advice is to stop putting him in things that restrict movement, such as the Halo sleep sacks that wrap the arms down and close to the body. He still needs the cozy, snug feeling of his Halo to fall asleep though. With his arms free he will. Not. Sleep. What can I use now that he's supposed to transition out of his Halo wrap position bu... More
For about a month now, my 6 mo. old babygirl is waking up every night about an hour after we put her to sleep for the night in her crib in her own room. She won’t stop crying unless we bring her into our bed (where she’ll then sleep mostly the rest of the night...sometimes waking to breastfeed around 3 am). She takes three great naps in her room during the day everyday and we have a pretty soli... More
So my 2.5 yr old has always gone to sleep like clockwork. Even tonight right on cue he declares bedtime and we went through his ritual and said goodnight. But tonight he keeps getting up. He's not fussing or making noise. He is just sitting quietly in his room reading with the light on. If I go in he turns the light off and gets in bed. Then he is up again 5 minutes later. I am just really ... More
Our 11 mo old has out of the blue gone from extremely independent and generally a good sleeper to a total crying tyrant at bed time. She has always been a relatively good sleeper and needed almost no sleep training (using the 3/5/7min method she was usually down by the 7 minute bout). Her top two teeth are coming in, and she just dropped to one nap at daycare (she was already 1-a-day at home ... More
I have been home with my 2 year old since she was born, I breastfed her the first 23 months and everything was pretty normal. We had a bed time routine and then she would breastfeed to sleep. The whole process would take 30 minutes tops. Now, it’s so stressful to get her down for the night. She has these outrageous tantrums every.single.night. I’ll just turn off the lights and she’ll begin scre... More
Hello! 1st time mom looking for some ideas on my 2 year old. We go to sleep at 7pm and wake up between 8am and 9am, usually closer to 9! Is this normal? I feel very lucky but dad feels bedtime is too early. We may nap around noon or 1 depending on days activities. Since we sleep so late and live an hour away from any play groups/ activities my son and I hang out all day. Again super lucky. But ... More
My 4.5 year old is still wearing Pull Ups to bed at night and I am so over it. What is the best way to protect his mattress while we transition from Pull Ups to underwear only at bedtime? We have a mattress pad that goes under the sheet, but I know I will need more protection than that. Thanks all!
Every night. Multiple times... What should I do?
My son just turned 2 and he has been a rockstar sleeper from the very beginning. He started sleeping through the night on his own by 3 weeks. Now, all of the sudden he cries and cries when put down. First it was just bedtime and now it’s nap too. I think at first he had a bad dream because he woke up screaming and terrified. Ever since though, nap and bedtime are a constant struggle. He cries a... More
My 9mo was doing so great with sleeping and napping. We were even able to reduce her down to 2 naps (a 1hr and a 2hr nap). About a week ago she suddenly decided to stop sleeping 11-12hrs a night and not to sleep more than 30min and 1hr for her 2 naps. She also won’t let us put her down anymore for naps. She’ll scream bloody murder if we do. I think it’s teething but even giving her Tylenol does... More
Her room is dark, I play sound machine, she sleeps through the night which is great but refuses to nap much during day.
For the last 3 months my 17mo has been waking up at 3 or 4 am every night! We are at wits end! We work full time jobs and are zombies when we get home. My daughter slept through the night since she was 2 months old but not him. He screams and cries for 15 minutes plus and we are so exhausted and for the respect of everyone else’s sleep we grab him and put him in bed or guest bed. Why the same t... More
My son is 18 mo and is going to start part time daycare. He’ll have lunch and a nap while he’s there. I am really worried about him napping, he’s the type that I put in his crib and he rolls around for a little while before falling asleep in his dark room with white noise...... at day care it’s lights on, probably some commotion and freedom of only having to lay on a mat AND their nap is an hou...

My 9mo has been sleeping 11-12 hours a night. We purchased pampers baby dry 12hr protection and she has been wetting through them. We prefer pampers swaddlers but I haven’t seen any nighttime ones. I am willing to try other brands just not sure which people have had the most success with. Thanks for the help!!
