Wouldn’t it be nice if all babies had the same sleep schedule? If they all took the same number of naps for the same length each day? And they all went to bed and got up at the same time each day? The reality is, a baby’s nap schedule is constantly changing and can be confusing and frustrating to navigate. One day she takes a 30 minute nap, then a 2 hour nap the next day, and t ...

Having three kids and a husband that travels for work, makes juggling multiple bedtimes seem like a huge mountain to climb each night. Trying to juggle two or three different bedtime routines can be really tough and confusing if you’re not prepared for it. Trying to find fifteen minutes to breastfeed your newborn at the same time you’re trying to get your toddler out of the bat ...

“He is so fussy today. He is probably teething.” “He didn’t eat well today…teething.” “He did not sleep well last night. His gums must be sore from teething.” Do any (or all) of these statements sound familiar? I know they do for me! When my second oldest had trouble sleeping, I would always blame it on teething, even though he was never a great sleeper to begin with. It is eas ...

My 3 year old LOVES his crib, and I am pretty sure he would sleep there until he was teenager if I let him. However, last month because of our kids’ ages and sleep quarters, we decided it was time to transfer him into a new room with his brother into a big boy bed. Ideally, I would have liked to have had him stay there until he was 4 years old, but as many of you know it isn’t ...

Halloween is an evening activity and although it is a lot of fun, it can make sleep that night a little more challenging.  So here are a couple of tips to hopefully make your Ha ...

Do you ever wonder why your teenager suddenly wants to become a night owl? Or why it is so hard for them to get up and get going in the morning? Why is it that when we ask them to get up at 8am, it seems like we are asking them to wake up at 6am? Believe it or not, they are not just being difficult, there is an actual shift in their circadian rhythm that makes there sleep go th ...

Maybe you are expecting a new member of the family to arrive soon, maybe you need an extra guest room, or maybe you are just simply out of space and do not have another option. Whatever the reason might be for having your little ones share a room, it has become a definite reality for many families. After watching families make this transition over the years, we have many tips o ...

It’s heating up, swimming is a daily activity, and the grills are in full swing. That can only mean one thing…it’s almost the 4th of July! This can be a fun day filled with friends, food, and fireworks, but it can also be a day we all dread when it comes to how it effects our little ones’ sleep. Here are a few helpful tips to help preserve your child’s sleep during Fourth of Ju ...

After all of the hard work you have put in over the past two years to get your little one sleeping well, you have once again hit another regression! Many people are not familiar with this regression, but it can be a doozy. However, it might give you a little comfort knowing that this is typically the last regression we see with good sleepers, so once you are over this hump it s ...

Working with Shannon, I went from 2-3 wake ups every night to 1 or 0. She aligned the plan with my preferred sleep cycle. She was always coaching, never judging. Shannon was great, I have referred MANY people to her! That's the best testament to her work that I can give.
