  1. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hello, I really need an advice for teaching the baby how to nap on her own! We've been nursing to nap while sidelying or I was babywearing her through the nap, or jumping on the birth ball while she's in the sling to put her to sleep, white noise on. Well, 20 minutes later, if I get away from...
  2. Life with a Toddler
    I have slowly been weaning my toddler (who will be two in July), one nursing session at a time. I'm a little nervous about eliminating her nurse to sleep session because I'm not sure what to do instead. Anyone make this transition with success? Any ideas or suggestions? Thank you!!
  3. Life With a Baby
    Hi mamas. I could really use some advice and/or support right now. I'm feeling pretty exasperated about my almost one-year-old and sleep. Until recently, he took all naps in the Ergo. About a month ago we transitioned to me nursing him to sleep in our family bed for naps. It was going pretty...

    <p>As I sit down to type this my 2yr old is asleep on the floor & My 4 yr old is asleep on the couch in the living room. They put themselves there and drifted off while watching a quiet movie. Quiet afternoon movies have become a thing around here because then they voluntarily nap.</p> <p> </p>...
  5. Life with a Toddler
    <p>Hi folks,</p> <p> </p> <p>As per title I'm wondering if anyone has experimented with changing their LO's routines in order to try and preserve the last nap, that it looks like they are giving up?</p> <p> </p> <p>My thought is that perhaps my daughter will still sleep regularly if somehow I...
  6. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Hi. I babysit my cousin's baby who is 6 months old. He takes breast milk through a bottle and co-sleeps sometimes and crib sleeps other times with his Mommy. I usually would feed him and he would fall asleep or there's a little rocker here I would put him in and rock him to sleep. He has...
  7. Baby
    By V.K. Harber   All primary caregivers know the drill. Kid's head hits pillow, adult's feet hit pavement (so to speak). If you're anything like me, naptime is when you run around the house, not unlike a chicken with its head cut off, attempting to do everything you couldn't do while you...
  8. Life with a Toddler
    <p>I haven't posted on here in ages, I usually lurk.  But I'm at a total loss.  DS2 just turned 2 last week.  The week before he got a nasty stomach bug.  He couldn't keep anything down for days and had lots of diarrhea after that.  He refused to nurse the whole time and even with pumping, my...
  9. Life With a Baby
    <p>My baby girl just turned 5 months and for the past couple weeks she's been fighting sleep for her daytime nap and bedtime. She's happy in the morning, and takes her first nap with little trouble(I can lay her in her crib awake but sleepy and she goes to sleep fine) but by afternoon she...
  10. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>Aaaaaaah! I posted here a couple of days ago about wanting to start co-sleeping with my 10 month old son to see if I could get more sleep (and if he could). I tried last night (I know it was only one night) but it was a disaster. Anytime we have brought him into bed with us in the past it...

    Sometimes I wonder when the drama of running a family ever ends or whether family life is just one big drama that morphs into comedy, tragedy, and the ridiculous? This morning I woke up to the realization that I'm starting my once-a-day nap this freaking Sunday and my head is still thinking...
  12. Baby
    I posted this on my BOLD blog, but I thought I"d repost here for all you pregnant mamas (and not pregnant!)! For those of you who have read my Mothering Magazine blog you'll know my new obsession lately is napping. Not just any nap, but a yoga nidra nap. I'm so nap-happy this year that...

    Did you know astronauts nap? While two fly the plane one takes a 40 minute nap. NASA found that for 26 minutes of that time the astronaut was asleep and the entire 40 minutes boosted their performance by 34% and their alertness by 54 percent. This got me thinking about all those "stop" signs...
