    Recommendations:  The CPA and AAPA suggests that for the first year of life, baby should sleep on their back, with no pillow, on their own surface, in your room. Many parents do co-sleep or bedshare and make the sleep environment the most safest they can. (See the blog post on Co-sleeping...

    LO is a week away from turning 6 months old, and here's the deal: she had been staying awake between naps around an hour and 30 to an hour and 45 minutes. Suddenly, she fights a nap at that awake time tooth and nail (still giving us fussy/sleepy cues at that time). "Ok," we think, "let's try 2...

    My fellow co-sleeping mamas: Where does baby take his nap? Your bed? A carrier? Do you nap with baby?
