    Co Sleeping

    Co sleeping is a either a big no or a non-issue to some.  For us it wasn’t a big deal.  All our children have slept with us until they were like 3 or 4. Then transferred to a toddler bed that was always next to our bed before they started sleeping in their own rooms. Now, I’m not going to tell you what you can and can not do. This is more about what worked for us. So, we all know the first month with a newborn you aren’t getting nearly enough sleep on top of trying to get your routine down.

    Middle Child

    Any of you a middle child? My husband is so his perspective on how to raise my middle is always so helpful. I don’t know about ya’ll but I always have some kind of guilt trip with any of my kids.

Right now, I’m more talking about my Baby J. He’s 4 now, but we’ve always called him by that nickname.
