Ronee really helped me with my b/g twins! They were just 8 weeks old when I called her for help. I was exhausted with not only feeding them every few hours but then they wouldn’t sleep much by themselves. One always wanted to be held and the other would only sleep in her rock-n-play. Ronee […]

Daylight Savings Time – “Falling Back”

Daylight savings time is coming up this weekend! Let me just start by saying that if I had my way, there would not be a daylight savings time!

Even the best sleepers are sometimes startled awake by things that sound off in the middle of the night. So what do you do when […]

Let’s Talk Toddlers…

Toddlers can be very challenging, yet very rewarding if you know what you’re doing! First of all, a child becomes a toddler around 1yr of age and it lasts until about 3yrs old, when he moves up to the classification of “preschooler”. While that time frame is often filled with temper tantrums, screaming, and flat-out […]

Bedtime Routines

Bedtimes routines are an essential cue to a child’s mind and body that sleep is drawing near. They can be implemented as early as day one, though most parents find it easier to begin them after things have calmed down a bit.
