It happens, we get it. Toddlers are by far the best negotiators. You almost see a little lawyer in the them when they plead their case. Toddlers have regression in sleep patterns a couple times a year. Its very common and certainly fixable. Within a few days of consistency you will be enjoying your sleep anew.
Toddler Sleep tips:
No negotiating. Keep the rules firm.
Give them a choice. They feel like they have a form of authority in the situation. Even if its something small. “Green pajamas or red?”.
Stay consistent with the rules for bed time.
Reward them for sleeping in their bed.

Babies weight needs to be 10-12 pounds, at least. Some babies reach this weight quickly and easily, while other infants are little guys. All very common and nothing to stress about. Your baby will gain weight in time, no rush. Formula can be more filling and help pack on those extra pounds. No pressure to start using formula, just an option for parents if they are trying to get longer stretches and pack on a few extra pounds. If you’re worried about your babies weight, please chat with your physician.
Ounces per day
24-32 ounces per day is mandatory to start training. If they are not up to 24 ounces (including a dreamfeed) a day, they still need to be fed at night.
Patience is a key component when it comes to Sleep Training requirements. All babies grow and develop at different rates. Its very common for a 3 month old to not weigh or eat the required amount, to start sleep training. Be patient with your baby as they develop into the next milestone.

Breastfeeding struggles include: latch, milk supply, bonding, improper position and sore nipples. 92 percent of new mothers said they had troubles breastfeeding. You are not alone. You should have an endless amount of resources around you after baby is born. Welcome these suggestions. As the days move on you will find your support team may have gone back to work and or think you’ve got it.
Who has the knowledge
The nurses at the hospital should have lots of knowledge to help with latching and milk supply. If your problems arise after you are home, your night nurse and or doula should have plenty of tips to guide you to success. Still having difficulties? Reach out to your local lactation source. They can be found at hospitals and community events for moms. Most insurance should cover your lactation consult. Check with your insurance to see who is in your network.
Relax! Babies can feed off your stress and in return makes them stressed. 30 years ago docs had moms drink a beer to relax them and have the milk supply arrive. This trick is still used today. Obviously, pump and dump that first supply after beer.
Lay on your back while breastfeeding. Baby led breastfeeding.
Sometimes baby isn’t hungry. Offer breast when you and baby are calm. A lot of the times baby gets frustrated when mom is forcing a feeding and baby actually is just tired. Relax, enjoy, and read your babies cues.
Find a night nurse with breastfeeding experience to help you at night.

Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny for my twins? Like all mothers we want to be the strong mom that did it herself. I was on maternity leave, why wouldn’t I wake with my twins and breastfeed? Its my motherly duty and job, my time to bond, right? The first night home with my babies went smoothly. “Ive got this” as I patted myself on the back. The next day I had energy.
3 nights later I was shocked at how tired I was. Hating my husband for sleeping through the chaos, and leaving me the next day for work. I couldn’t wait to go to sleep day or night. Being cranky, and thinking motherhood wasn’t for me.
My husband realized the exhaustion and moodiness. His friend had a baby a few months ago and he’s never heard him complain about sleepless nights. He began to inquire with his buddy/co worker how he helped his wife and baby through this new sleepless life. He said “two words my friend, Night Nanny”.
How Night Owl Nanny Care saved my sanity
It took some convincing, but I agreed to meet with Night Owl to see how they could help us.
Emily at Night Owl Nanny Care walked me through all the things a Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny can do for me. Breastfeeding assistance, bonding, swaddle assistance, helping babies sleep better, cleaning and mom/baby support. It was exactly what I needed. We met with 2 Postpartum Doulas/Night Nannies. Both Doulas were great. Lilly’s schedule fit ours best.
Postpartum Doula and Night Nanny for Twins
The Doula came to our home the next day. She helped me with breastfeeding, did my dishes, let me shower and take a nap. She came to doctor appointments and helped me see all options. I was very comfortable with her in our home and caring for my little guys.
That night she came back. She gave me a monitor to check on her or babies if I felt I needed to. Watching the monitor through out the night, I thought “this is silly”. We turned off the monitor and slept, not like a baby, because they don’t sleep. We slept like a bears in hibernation. My husband and I woke up refreshed to our boys still sleeping. She taught us some sleep tricks and walked me through their night.
Sleep Training, date nights and Vacation
Lilly Sleep Trained the boys at 4 months. Education on sleep training was provided. Our Sleep Specialist helped transition our boys into sleep lovers. She was sweet, helpful, and caring.
Night Owl Nanny Care continues to offer their services. Our night nanny, and a few others have helped with date nights and we even got a parents getaway. We fully trust they provide excellent, screened nannies and doulas. We are pleased with the support they provided to our family.
Its common to not bond with your baby right away. It happens quite often. So why is know one talking about it? Women fear they will be judged or something is wrong with them. The best way to bond with your baby, is skin to skin contact, staring into babies eyes and having baby mock your facial expressions. This can be helpful for mom, dad, and siblings. Moms, you will eventually bond with your baby. Give it time. Everything will be ok.
Breastfeeding is hard
We are all told breastfeeding is the most natural thing in motherhood. Thats not the case for many. Latch and position are important. Most moms can’t throw their baby on a breast and expect perfect feedings. If you are having troubles breastfeeding, no worries, plenty of expertise around to help. The most helpful tip we can offer is lie down on back and have baby find your nipple. They can smell that delicious milk and become very determined. If breastfeeding is painful, unlatch and try again. You want babies mouth wide and around most of the nipple. Its a common struggle, you are not alone. It will get better.
Postpartum depression affects 1 in 7 women. Thats a huge amount of women struggling and being hush hush about it. It’s ok to be depressed after your baby arrives. Its common. Solution seeking should be your first priority. Talking to your doctor and family about your depression will open up some helpful solutions. You will get past your depression, and love your baby. This feeling is not permanent. Sleep is a huge impact on depression. Make sure you are taking care of yourself as well. If you have feelings of hurting yourself or your baby you should call 911 and or your doctor immediately.
Everybody has a “right” opinion
Everybody has an opinion or experience they want to share with you. How to swaddle or not to swaddle, bathe, give a binky, don’t give a binky. You will always be told what you are doing wrong and rarely what you are doing right. Most people are genuinely trying to be helpful. Do your own research, take into consideration of what others suggest and decide as a family whats best for you and your family. Parenting is hard at all stages. You’re doing a great job!
If you need assistance day or night, please reach out to us. We offer Postpartum Doula’s, Night Nannies and Sleep Training Specialist.
A Sleep Fairy comes to your home and helps your toddler(s) or infant(s) sleep through the night. She educates the family on the sleep training process. Your sleep fairy will guide your tiny ones through the night and set them up for sleep success for life. If you have sleep regression, (which you will until kiddos are 4) you will have access to your sleep fairy for life via text, email or phone calls.
How does it work?
Your Sleep Fairy has an initial evening visit to assess the nursery, bed time routine and daytime/nap routine. She will meet the toddler and make sure they are all set for sleep success in their room. Infants get to know their sleep trainer a bit in this visit, this will prevent “stranger danger”. She will then arrive between 6pm-11pm (8 hour minimum) to start the magic. She will ease and guide your infant or toddler through the night and teach your babies how to self soothe. This process tends to be 3-14 nights. Depending on the family and situation, it may take longer.
Why are mornings so exciting for toddlers?
Toddlers are great at negotiating. Always needing one more hug, or a drink before they can sleep. How do we keep toddlers enticed to stay in bed? We bribe them. Whether its a balloon or two pieces of bacon in the morning, they will be very excited to see what The Sleep Fairy has left for them. The small prizes are only to get them started and excited about sleeping in their own bed all night.
How did the name ‘Sleep Fairy’ start?
Miss Cecile the Sleep Fairy helped a family get their toddler to sleep in his own room and stop coming into mommy and daddys room. This process was a quick 3 days. Miss Cecile The Sleep Fairy called and checked in with the toddler and the parents a few times within the next couple of weeks. If the parents had sleep regression they would “threaten” to call Miss Cecile. Miss Cecile was very much liked by the toddler and he did not want to “upset” her because he knew she meant business.

Many moms questioning if a baby nurse is right for their family. Am I incapable of caring for my own child? No, absolutely not. Its a growing necessity that has Denver moms raving. Who can function the next day on no sleep? Don’t you want to enjoy the daytime with your baby and give them the love and attention your baby needs?
The question is being asked, and moms are siding with sleep. Some parents are choosing every other night to have a baby nurse. Some parents are choosing 7 nights a week.

Its very exciting news to have a brother or sister on the way. Most kids are very excited at first. Once they realize all that undivided attention that was once on them, is now on their sibling, perspectives change a bit. I asked my parents when my sister was going back to the hospital. Its very common. How do we get them excited? We bribe them with gifts, like usual.
Get your toddler excited
Tell them all the things they can do with their new sibling. They will have somebody to play with at all times. A forever friend. Excite them about how fun it will be. The important role a big sibling has. What they can do to help Mommy and Daddy when their sibling arrives. Show them the ultrasounds, feel when baby is kicking and let them help you decorate the nursery.
Families have started this new trend of “the baby” giving their older sibling a “hello” gift. In return you have your toddler pick out a “welcome” gift for their new baby sibling. What toddler doesn’t love gifts? Its a fast way to a toddlers heart. It doesn’t have to be extravagant but get her excited about a gift and keep telling her, “maybe the Baby will get that for you”.
Make sure your toddler is still getting lots of attention. Kisses and hugs from mom, dad, grandpa, the whole family. Take her and the new baby on “Sister dates” “Sibling fun”. Just so she knows she can have fun with her non mobile friend. She will want to show her baby sibling all the fun exciting things she sees. Some toddlers take a few to warm up to their new friend. Be patient, and encourage them to be happy and excited about their new friend.
Did we forget something important? Just add it in comments below.
A baby nurse is not an actual nurse or woman with a medical degree. Baby nurse, night nurse, Newborn Care Specialist and night nanny are all pretty much the same thing. A baby nurse provides overnight care for your newborn(s). They will come to your home between 7pm-11pm and stay anywhere from 6 am- 9:30 am depending on your families needs.
While you sleep your baby nurse will feed, burp, and settle your newborn back down to sleep. Specialized in newborns they make sure your infant(s) tummy is settled and ready to be laid back down flat on their back. Experienced in reflux, oxygen, multiples, gas, constipation, breastfeeding, setting your newborn up for sleep success and sleep training. Your baby nurse will keep a log of how the night went. Logging sleep schedule, diaper changes and feedings. Your baby nurse will keep the nursery tidy. Doing any baby related chores, including baby laundry, sterilizing bottles/breast pump equipment, and taking out diaper pail.
Baby nurses will work around your families needs. Helping anywhere from 1-7 nights a week. You will grow to love and trust your nanny very quickly. Whether this is your first or your third child, this service comes in very handy. Let a caring professional and experienced baby nurse care for your baby so you can sleep.
Postpartum depression~ Sleep
Postpartum depression is most commonly caused from a lack of sleep. Make sure you are taking care of yourself and your family. Get some sleep. If this service was offered 20-40 years ago when our parents were raising us, believe me they would have utilized this service. We are a generation coming up with ways to help the busy parent, lets embrace that and accept help. Its ok to want to sleep. You spent 9 months creating a little human being. Your body is tired. Rest up Mommas, we have you covered.
