  1. Teething is keeping my 16 month old up during the night. I have to remind myself the sleepless nights won’t last forever.

  2. This is such great information. After two kids, I have figured out quite a few of these things now, but it would have been SO helpful with toddler #1. And thank you for making me laugh out loud with your potty training comments. I would totally out-source that part of parenthood if I could.

  3. Oh my gosh i needed this today!! We had a horrible night, but my toddler is just over 17 months now so hopefully it´s explained by that leap :)!

  4. Thank you for all of this! We are expecting another baby in February and also getting ready to transition to a toddler bed. I’ve been dreading the transition!

  5. The topic of sleep is a huge trigger for me.

    I’ve grown up in a mostly dysfunctional family. My sleep hours are totally out of whack, which has caused a lot of problems in daily life.

    Your post is really informative. Bookmarking when I have my own kids next time. I hope they won’t have to go through what I did growing up.

  6. I used to be able to utilize a white noise machine for my then infant son and it lulled him to sleep so many times, and it helped other members of my family too… such came a shock when his separation anxiety set in, and then he would wake up several times throughout the night yelling for me. I am right there! I usually cave and allow him to sleep beside me but i don’t think that is helpful.

  7. I just had to move my 18 month old into my almost 3 year old’s room. Neither one of them will nap for me. They are in bunk beds that they can’t get out of because they kept playing together instead of napping, but now they just cry. Any suggestions?

    1. Aww I’m so sorry to hear that! That’s tough! Have you tried putting them down for a nap at slightly different times? For example, maybe the younger one first and then bring the older one it to take their nap once the youngest is already asleep? Staggering them might help. Good luck!
