Are you struggling with getting your baby to sleep? I know the feeling! My daughter only slept through the night for the first time at 3 years old. Until then she woke up every 2 – 3 hours every single night. Her day naps were short and it took me longer to get her to sleep than she slept for.
It was nothing short of exhausting!
All these posts on sleep are researched because of my struggles with my daughter.
I hope you don’t struggle with your child like we did!
