Mod Sleeper by MOD’Swad
May 17, 2013 12:24 pm | by

Fact: Babies like to be swaddled. It’s soothing, comforting and provides a sense of security like a mother’s womb. There are a few different ways to swaddle your baby and one of the most common is with a blanket. But, aside from blankets, there are other swaddling methods, too. Similar to a Woombie, the Mod Sleeper is the ultimate in children’s loungewear! These one-piece sleepers are soft, breathable, and perfect for tangle-free swaddling. The Mod Sleeper softly confines arms and legs, gently compressing your baby’s body, but allows your little one to stretch extremities as needed. Unlike a swaddle blanket,

 
aden + anais Adult Blanket
March 22, 2013 2:30 pm | by

If you’ve been following our blog for any real amount of time, you already know how much I enjoy aden + anais products. I own a set of Bamboo Muslin Wraps that are exclusively mine that I wear as scarves and use when traveling. A big jar of mum + bub Soothing Ointment sits on my bedside table. The B-Jeweled Muslin Wraps are the only thing that makes me smile when found scattered on my floor by the children. So take the following review with a grain (or whole shaker full) of salt. For a long time I’ve joked around

 
Thursday Giveaway: Sweet Sleep
January 17, 2013 4:00 pm | by

Do you have a sleep routine? I do. Thankfully some wise friend shared with me early in my parenting routine the importance of a consistent bedtime routine for my children. Not only do I have a routine for my children, I also have one for myself. Sleep experts say having a consistent set of behaviors before bed helps to signal your body that it is time to sleep. They suggest activities that calm you, quiet your mind and comfort your body. A nice bath or shower and clean cozy PJs are an important part of my children’s bedtime routine. Followed

 
Lullabies
May 5, 2012 11:52 am | by

Just like Claire, we sing a lot throughout the day. I make up little songs for finishing meals, sing the ABCs when brushing Vicki’s teeth, and nothing beats a good rendition of “The Wheels on the Bus” to calm down a cranky toddler in the car. But my favorite time to sing is bedtime. When I was a little girl, my mom used to sing us lullabies every night. The same songs, in the same order, all snuggled together on one of our beds. It was our signal that it was time to sleep. It was our reminder that we

 
Adventures in Overnight Diapering

Cloth Diaper Creams

The trickiest part of diapering a baby is getting through the night without leaks or an uncomfortable diaper waking the baby up. As if we need to get up more times in the night anyway.Fortunately, there are a few tricks up our cloth diapering sleeves to help keep your baby happy and their sheets dry until morning. Double stuffing, or putting multiple inserts into one diaper, is a simple technique to get more absorbency out of your cloth diapers. For pocket diapers like the Bum Genius 4.0, simply add another insert in the pocket. I like to use a newborn

Swaddle ‘Em Up and Throw ‘Em Down.
March 10, 2012 12:48 pm | by

I’m just kidding there, I would never throw my baby. But I do still swaddle her at 10 months. My first baby was swaddled until she was a year old and I’d like to believe it’s because my womb is so comfortable they can’t bear the wide open world around them as they sleep. There’s always talk about SCHEDULES! as it relates to naps and bedtime and oh believe me, I have a schedule. But nothing solidifies the “SHOOSH AND GO TO SLEEP NOW” message like swaddling to my babies. With my first, Addie, there weren’t really any fancy swaddling

 
Dealing with sleep deprivation
March 7, 2012 3:00 am | by

How do you start a blog post about sleep deprivation, when you’re a little sleep deprived? Much like you start or don’t ever finish anything: poorly and slowly! Are you reading this at 3am while someone very small is a) eating b) crying or c) pooping? Or is it nice and sunny outside but you’re a little disgruntled because you did not really get as much sleep as you’d wanted out of the nighttime hours? I know how you feel! As a new mom, sleep deprivation is unavoidable. It’s probably one of the first pieces of advice you received when

 
Tuesday Giveaway: All Wrapped Up
February 28, 2012 6:07 pm | by

I’ll be the first to admit, I love to swaddle a newborn. Swaddling is a technique where you wrap a baby tightly in a large blanket to secure their arms and legs. It can help soothe the baby, as many believe it reminds infants of the womb. I didn’t do it very often with my oldest son, but with my other children, I swaddled them for as long as I possibly could. I know not every child likes to be swaddled, but mine did. It was a lifesaver for our whole family. It helped our babes fall asleep and stay
