We got lucky we really didn’t need to sleep train

Just been religious with schedule/bedtime and the Baby Merlin suit was a savior

not looking to sleep train just yet, just to get him out of the snoo - still doing a feeding or two a night
This was my fear of using the snoo and why we didn’t, in addition to not being able to afford the snoo

Mostly not being able to afford it, I would have loved to sleep a few hours at that age

Lol we're using our friend's. Looking forward to getting rid of it so we can put the crib up against the monitor

Doing sleep training and this has been such a godsend compared to the regular amount of time it took to put him to bed. We still have another 7 days to go but wondering how to do this for naps too.

Need to look into this. Our girl is as bad of a sleeper as I am. And she’s started teething. Last two weeks have been rough. Snoo hasn’t helped at all and now we’re about to transition to the crib. Fire me into the sun.

15 month check up, late cause she was vacationing all summer while I'm back slumming. 99 percentile again across the board, head a little big cause your man got a noggin full of wealth lol

Was still failing overnight with the pee blowout until we dropped a woman's pad in, now we're good come AM jah bless

Last minute switch up on my end and yanked her to a cidery/petting farm







I have a solid 10 more days before mom goes back to work after 7-8 months off, trying to fit in as many activities as I can cause mom is def in her feelings


Point being, line those overnight pampers with a pad so you can ride out the 12-13 hour sleeps lord willing

Been in the hospital since Sunday with the 8-month-old. Parainfluenza + RSV combo. She should be ok soon, but she's just needed to be on oxygen and IV drip w/ blood oxygen monitoring.

So glad I decided to urgent care despite not being sure what they would do about her little cold...
fuuuuuck dude, hope all goes well :hug:

Feel you man, we did a hospital stint also for RSV

I learned a lot from that experience
(1) at any sign of shallow breathing/fast paced take it seriously and get helped immediately
(2) have a pulse oximeter handy

We took an ambulance from pediatrician
