Toddler Sleep Rehab Part 2

“Last Monday (ten days ago), I implemented everything Erin outlined throughout the day and for bedtime routine. Shockingly, Mazzy went down with no problems whatsoever the first night. There were tons of surprises in this— she had no issue reading one book instead of four, was super excited to get the ten minutes of reading time as opposed to the five, and ATE UP the whole “three things I love about you”.

Toddler Sleep Rehab

“About a month ago, I posted a comment on my facebook page about having trouble getting Harlow to sleep. Lo and behold (and this is what’s awesome about having a blog), a woman named Erin left a comment to contact her because she is a certified sleep consultant.
I finally took Erin up on her offer last week when I emailed to get her advice on how to successfuly transition my two girls into the same room. (Despite my post last week, we have been too scared to do it.)…”
