“I attended the Pickles & Ice Cream Infant, Toddler and Child Sleep event at the Kirkwood Library in January with host Erin Meckfessel...I am so glad I went. I feel like I have a head start on becoming a mom. I am confident that I what I learned will prevent me from having to break some bad sleep habits that, as a new mom, I would have created for my baby.”
