Picking Your Battles

As Kenny Rogers so famously put it, “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em,” and that’s never so true as it is when you’re dealing with a young child. If you were to stand firm every time you and your little one disagreed, you would spend almost all of your time arguing. And even though the hills worth defending will be different for every family, I’ve got some suggestions today to help you evaluate where you might want to give up some ground in exchange for a little peace and serenity.

The Curse of the Short Nap

Tell me if this sounds familiar. Your baby is yawning and rubbing her eyes, clearly ready for a prolonged daytime snooze, so you put her down in her crib, turn out the light and she dozes off, only to wake up again 45 minutes later, refusing to go back to sleep.

This is such a common occurrence, I’ve named it, “The Curse of the Short Nap.” In today’s video, I’ll explain why the 30-45 minute mark is such a predictable wake-up point for babies, and tell you how you can help them to get the long, restful naps they need.

The Benefits of Boundaries

It’s a bit of a mixed blessing when our little ones hit the toddler years. This is the time when they’re really starting to develop their own personalities and characteristics, and all of the cuteness that comes along with it.

But that’s also the time when they start questioning what happens if they don’t follow the rules, and if you’re not careful, your once peaceful household can suddenly feel like it’s being run by your child.

The surprising truth is that toddlers don’t test those boundaries hoping for more freedom and independence. In fact, it’s just the opposite!

I’ll explain what I mean in this week’s video.

Staying on Track During Your Bedtime Routine

If your little one is testing the bedtime boundaries, I’ve got some tips for you today that will keep the routine on track and make sure they’re happily in bed and ready for sleep right on schedule without having things turn into a battle.

Switching From Two Naps to One

Around the time of your baby’s first birthday, they’re likely to start needing slightly less daytime sleep. This usually means they can switch from two shorter daytime naps down to one longer one.

This can be a very tough transition to make. Pushing their nap time later in the day can lead to overtiredness, but letting them sleep too early in the day means they’ll be awake for too long before bedtime.

In today’s video, I’ve got a few tips to help you find the balance between these two undesirable scenarios and get your baby down to one nap a day without messing up their schedule.
