Zzzzzz.... mom tip

So, lately I've had a couple of friends/family ask, 'how do you put your kids to sleep?' I've also asked the question of others lately as my Boo was switching to a big girl bed and having a hard time (she's doing great now! thanks for the advice!). My kids are pretty good sleepers too. So, for starters 3 things I do (mainly so I remember with future kids! but also cause some of you have actually used my tips and they worked, I love it! It's hard enough to be a mom, we need all the help we can get!).

1-schedule: the kid needs sleep...they are in bed by 7pm after the daily routine.
2-about 6 months of age, I let them cry it out with the every 5,10,15 min check, pat on back, and out the door again! Let me expound on this one a little bit in my next blog...
3-a new little trick I learned, Little Bay wakes earlier than I would like (a little before 7). so lately, before I go to bed, I put a couple of safe toys she really likes and hasn't seen for awhile, into her crib with her. And some new books on Boos bed. So as soon as they wake up, they see them, and I get at least another half hour. nice....zzzzz
