Mom's and Dad's I am guessing that most of your are falling into the actually
"sleep deprived" category and don't even realize it!
I am also betting that a number of your little ones are also falling into this category and it's probably showing up in ways that you didn't even think were a thing.
Seriously, if you think that having constant broken sleep because of your little one's lack of independent sleep skills isn't affecting your spouse, your child(ren) or you; you are wrong!!
What qualifies as SLEEP DEPRIVATION & how does it affect us?
When it comes to surviving the plane ride, the best piece of advice I ever got about traveling with kids is just to ACCEPT the fact
that you’re traveling with kids! So plan ahead and bring as many things that you can think of to keep your little one occupied
and comfortable. If you have to resort to “old ways” to get your child to settle down, then do so.
Just know that as soon as you land, its back to the plan!
The good news is that well-rested children handle jet lag much better than sleep-deprived adults.
How can you make the adjustment as seamless as possible?
****TTM&B SLEEP TIP****
We all know that #teething #babies can sometimes be very cranky, and with good reason I'd say!!
But this doesn't mean that your little moon bug needs to be awake for hours during the night
or brought into bed with you for comfort.
Once little ones have the skills they need to #sleep through the night independently, many
just sleep on through the discomfort or at the very most need a little pain reliever*,
a little snuggle and then they are back to dream land.
So don't change your expectations just because you suspect your little one might be teething.
He will likley be teething for about 2 years; that's a lot of sleepless nights that don't have to be.
He may need a little extra comfort, a few more snuggles but don't confuse him by
changing his routines, or your expectations; because he may just deside that he likes things
better this new way and you have a whole new set of sleep habbit to break.
Wondering how to tell the difference between a teething baby and a sick baby???
