Every parent of a toddler is eventually faced with the challenge of moving their little one from two naps down to one. It’s one of the top sleep questions we hear from parents. Before we get into the specifics of an effective and successful nap transition, you should know that I firmly believe that naps are a fundamental component of healthy sleep. A child who gets enough rest during the day will sleep better at night than one who doesn’t.
When everyone is sleeping well with your little one still in a crib, it can be daunting to think about making a change that could disrupt it all. But whether it’s time to move them for their own safety (hello climbers!) or you need the crib for another baby on the way, know that moving your little one from their crib to new bed doesn’t have to be scary. Being prepared for the change is a key factor in making a successful switch, and so we’re sharing tips on what you can do to help things along, even before the crib comes down.
I’ll never forget what it was like to bring my newborn baby home for the first time. I was totally in love, completely in awe that I was the mother to this beautiful bundle of joy…and totally and completely clueless about how sleep deprived I was going to be in just two short months.
You asked and I answered. I compiled some of your top sleep questions that you asked Whitney and provided you with my top sleep tips and tricks to help you and your family sleep better tonight!
I am so happy to share my recipe for these delicious pancakes that Sonny LOVES!! They are also perfect for a baby who doesn’t have any teeth or is teething. Let me know what you think!!
THIS POST IS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH JOHNSON’S®
Sonny’s new FAVORITE time of the day is bath time. For a while, we were bathing him in our kitchen sink because we were honestly too afraid to bring him into the big tub. He was growing out of it and it wasn’t such an enjoyable experience for him OR for us. However, we have a super old bathtub and were worried our knees would give out if we had to bend over and put pressure on them every night!
As promised, here is Part II of my 22 Days of Giving! I hope you found inspiration from Part I and will continue to find more here. I still haven’t gotten tired from my holiday shopping…I will be bummed when it’s all over! I hope everyone is having a wonderful time prepping for the holidays!
How to Keep Your Family Well Rested Over the Holidays
Traveling this holiday season? Whether you’re staying close to home or traveling to see family and friends, the holidays typically bring late nights, missed naps and general disruption of regular routines. Keeping everyone well rested (including adults!) is one of the best ways to ensure that your family will enjoy the best that the holidays have to offer.
I am getting SOOOOO excited for the holidays! It has been so much fun sharing my gift ideas with you. I hope you have enjoyed them. They are ACTUALLY things we use in our house every day or really WANT to. Here is the first half of them all in one place so it’s easy for you to shop!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
I am so excited for the holidays this year!! Usually we head to Vermont of Florida to spend time with Tim’s side of the fam but this year we are headed to New York and Amagansett for a real city Christmas! Though petrified of the flight with a walk 1 and a half year old, I can’t wait to see Sonny get all bundled up and experience snow for the first time. I didn’t see my first snowfall until I was in college. Isn’t that crazy?
