Good-looking comfortable pajamas for real women are hard to find. I actually own those yoda pajamas pictured above — thanks, Mom! — and they’re cozy as heck but doing nothing for my sex life. Note: I will write about nursing-friendly pajamas another day. As I was meeting my husband for our weekly lunch date, I sat […]
Traveling with babies and toddlers at the holidays is a different beast than the vacations we might take throughout the year. In addition to the regular joys of airline travel with small people, you can add in higher prices, crowds, and family stress. Woohoo. Between Whit and I, we’ve done all the ages of travel […]
When Joanne’s son was a toddler, she sent me tips on how to cope when baby doesn’t nap. Treat yourself kindly and avoid the power struggle.
The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep and the newer Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep are semi-hypnotic stories that promise sleep for kids ZZZZZZ

Having just hosted my 20-month old nephew on an overnight visit, I am reminded that toddlers can pop out of bed (even leaving the room!) without the skills to go back to sleep. I asked toddler sleep expert, Nicole, to weigh in on the little kid that won’t stay in his bed at night. Nicole Johnson […]

And then there are the rest of us. At one point my moms group’s weekly discussion was so dominated by sleep that we […]
He’s so ready to bust out of baby jail. If you clicked on this post because of the title, I need to stop you right here. If you are really a control freak, you would keep your baby/toddler/preschooler in a crib for as long as humanly possible. Once it became obvious that the needs of […]
