Even babies need a bedtime

When my son was a baby he slept all the time. (Mostly while laying on me.) I remember having to wake him up to feed him and all the times he fell asleep while still breastfeeding. When I asked our doctor about all this, she asked some questions about family history and determined that everything was fine. She added that we were lucky because our son slept so well.…

Getting to bed on time

It's 7:30 pm. Let the battle begin.



Let's say (for fun) that I can somehow get my son upstairs to start his bedtime routine at 7:30 pm (without the stalling, last-minute things he absolutely "has" to tell me and without any whining). Let's just say that happened. What follows is a series of check-ins. Did…

Learning to sleep well in childhood

When we brought our son home from the hospital, we decided to have him sleep his first night in his crib in his own room. We felt so wise in our decision, believing it to be important to teach our son that he sleeps in his room and we sleep in ours.



Our son, however, decided to start cluster feeding, so I was up with him all night, holding him. …

Everything I know is wrong

I have tried standing more during the day. Because I once read that sitting too much was bad for my health. I tried standing more at home, at work and when I went outside to play with my son. I stood. But, it turns out that I didn't need to.



Another study has just declared that…

But Mommy likes to read at bedtime

In the evenings, my wonderful husband supervises our son's bath activities and I am the one who gets to read to him at night. I don't remember how this started. I don't think we made any sort of agreement or arrangement around it - it may have been a natural progression of my cleaning up after dinner, him taking the little guy upstairs for bed, and our son liking to snuggle with me more (generally speaking).…

Passing along the bedtime pass

As of today, I am very lucky with my son's bedtime routine. He and I snuggle up in his bed and read books together (he reads me one and I read him three). Then there are hugs and kisses and then the light goes off. He very rarely leaves the bedroom.…

Another reason to fear the blue light

I am typing this post three hours before my bedtime. I normally do not work on blog posts at night (I write the majority of them in the mornings on the weekends), but it has been a busy weekend, so I am writing this one a few hours before I go to sleep. It is a Monday post, but that is not the deadline that I have in mind. My deadline is actually to be done with my computer an hour before my bedtime.…

Setting A Bedtime Routine With A Newborn

It took me about 4 weeks to settle into a night time routine with Oliver. However, since we started, it has been FANTASTIC! I wish that we had started our bedtime routine much earlier. I don't think it is ever too early to start. Before I share what we do at night, a quick disclaimer: I DO NOT stick to this every night... We are human! There are nights that just don't go as planned. I am ok with having off nights, but we try to do our routine whenever…

When your baby fat grows up

All mothers know there are two definitions of the phrase "baby fat." The first definition describes the extra roll of fat that clings to babies and is absolutely adorable. The second definition refers to those extra pounds that cling to a woman's body after she has the baby (and is considered much less adorable). Mothers usually blame their baby for their weight gain, and then try their luck at getting rid of it.…

BedtimeBedding - Best Storytelling set for your child

Bedtime Stories are imaginary worlds where the impossible becomes possible, the fun never stops and the endings are as happy as you can imagine. A bedtime story is a traditional form of storytelling, where a story is told to a child at bedtime to prepare the child for sleep. More importantly, bedtime storytelling helps kids bond with their parents and guardians.

Research shows that when dads or moms read bedtime stories, their kids do better at school. Bedtime stories encourage speech…

I'm stalking myself

I asked for - and received - a fitbit for Christmas. I thought it would make me move more throughout my day. And maybe it does. But what it has really done has made me obsessed with my sleep.



Every morning, I sync over my data and look at my sleep efficiency. I stare at the magenta areas: What is waking me…

Just five more minutes, Mom

As mentioned before, when it comes to mornings, I am awake and ready to go. This ability served me well in middle school and high school when I was responsible for getting myself awake, dressed and to school (via the bus or my own two feet) on time. I set my own alarm and I…

At night I dream of sleep

There is a note in my baby book that scares me a little. My mother wrote it in the four-year-old section:

       NO NAPS!



The fact that it was in all caps with an exclamation point only underscores the frustration and hopelessness she must have felt around the situation. I mean, children are…

Waking up with bears

It is 6:10 am. Bear number one's alarm goes off. He ignores it and rolls over. About 10 minutes later, I attempt to wake bear number two. He asks me to go away and come back in five minutes.
