Baby it’s cold outside… and that means dry, itchy skin! In my quest to find ways to better hydrate from the inside out (yes, other than drinking more water!) I found this recent publication that looked at the link between sleep duration and hydration in 20,000 people! (links in bio).
CONCLUSION: those who slept less than 8 hours were associated with a higher rate of dehydration.
Pls note: this was an observational study but looking at what happens during sleep there are physiological evidence that can support this.
1) When was the last time you checked on your healthy sleep hygiene?
•Get the restful sleep you need
•Check your environment for distractions and disrupters (lights, sounds, phone)
•Create or refresh your personal bedtime routine
2) Sip on hydrating fluids throughout the day (water, milk) while controlling the amount of dehydrating fluids especially closer to bedtime (coffee, alcohol)
3) Eat a healthy balance of fruits and veggies
4) Avoid salty snack and sugary treats in excess
Thank you for highlighting this 💜 thank you for the reminder that perfection in parenthood and in our relationships don’t lie in checked off boxes but in special moments we share with our little ones 💜
Sometimes life gets busy, sometimes even overwhelming, thank you fer the reminder that breathing and taking breaks are just as important as taking active steps.
Posted • 7 Days of Play] “It’s amazing what can happen if we shift our perspective.”
7 Days of Play] I absolutely love this and needed to share ❤️ I love celebrating every piece of my little ones, their similarities and differences and everything in between 💜 it’s definitely hard to shift perspectives however imagine the impact of voicing negative or “negatively perceived” attributes on confidence, self esteem, self love 💕 let’s build a generation of kindness and it starts with a positive mindset 💜
Regressions are bitter sweet phases and a normal part of your child’s development 💜Have your little one on an age appropriate schedule and make sure they aren’t up for too long or for too little.

EP. 04 NOW STREAMING!
Available wherever you listen to podcasts.
Mom, are you experiencing postpartum brain fog, most commonly referred to as "mommy brain"? While normal brain changes take place during the perinatal phase, there are things you can do to gain more brain power.
Join the conversation on Friday June 18 at 2:00 pm.
Let’s talk about sleep! Let’s talk about mental health! Let’s talk about why self-care is not selfish by looking at what research is telling us.
Our actions and our words have greater impact than we think. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When bedtime routine is set in stone they still manage to find something to negotiate 😅 Negotiating bedtime stories 👏 efficiently until... uh 5 stories!?
It’s never too early to introduce healthy sleep habits ❤️
Until recently I thought potty training was the most unpredictable phase.
I’m relieved to know that this phase will pass and also seemingly easy to gain some control ground over it! This is by far the most embarrassing phase yet 🙈
Solution: we’ll have to make a time for “Poop Talk” and it seems like it might even be fun to see what he’ll come up with!

Work when the kindergartener works! If only she could without needing me to colour with her, and Zumba with her, snack time ✅ craft time ✅ science experiment ✅ ummmm maybe I should get her a so then we can also do that together!
By far the most challenging in my opinion as 1 it’s counterintuitive at first glance and 2 some happy babies go from happy to exhausted in a minute! So avoiding the overtired zone is a work in progress with them ❤️🙈
Your baby is unique and any mom of 2+ can tell you that her parenting approach is different or modified for each child. WeeSleep understands that well 💜
This Wednesday May 5th is day ❤
As a mom of two, my experience was very different each time. Breastfeeding grief, I experienced with both but differently each time. Body-based grief and self-compassion in parenting, along with trying to figure out my new identity and trying to understand why I felt lonely more often than not and so many more emotions arose that I needed to understand and work with. Add sleep deprivation to all this and all I have to say is that each passing day I am increasingly thankful to the people I worked closely with to help me find my new confort zones and creating my mental well-being toolbox.
Join us and Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre on May 5th for a powerful live conversation on understanding breastfeeding/chestfeeding grief. Hear personal stories, learn about body-based grief, self-compassion in parenting, and more.
This event is aimed at new and soon-to-be parents, but all are welcome 💛

Key to knowing how to implement healthy sleep habits ❤️
“When kids don't benefit from the experience of looking inside themselves as a resource, they focus on external mechanisms to manage stress and anxiety. They do not develop a healthy internal locus of control putting them at risk for low self-esteem.”
Many exhausted parents tell me that although co-sleeping may have seemed like a good idea at one point, they recognize once entrenched in the never...

Came back home to this adorable note on the door ❤️
Moments like these make everything else dissipate.
Roselle is going to a French school and just recently started learning about syllables and composing sounds. She loves writing little notes and it amazes me how well she transfers the things she learned in French to expressing herself in English ❤️
Note says: mommy you’re beautiful Joel
Challenging myself and achieving something I set my mind to are ways I fill my cup.
When I finish reading a chapter or a book, complete a workout I didn't think I could do, or simply take a few just to breathe are little things that help me fill my cup.
My biggest is challenging a mindset! I find that often it's easy to settle with what's familiar. But, when that mindset is not serving you, and you find yourself fighting that inner energy trying to push you out of your "comfort" zone, then that's your indicator to break free. Let your energy flow and allow yourself to grow!
Let’s talk TEETHING!
Just like many developmental phases, teething can be experienced differently from one baby to another. My little guy expressed minor discomfort, while Roselle had bright red cheeks and even made up a teething song! Her “Zazaw” song was always an accurate indicator of a new little tooth to be expected in a couple of days or so!
CAN TEETHING IMPACT SLEEP?
Ask any parent with a child experiencing moderate discomfort, and they will surely agree!
Teething pain can be a source of the dreaded sleep REGRESSIONS just like a growth spurt, starting daycare, travelling, and the well-recognized 4, 6, 8-10, 12, and 18-24 months of key developmental stages.
Signs of a sleep regression include:
- Increased crankiness
- Resisting naps
- Trouble falling asleep at bedtime
- More frequent night wakings
The good news is that it’s a short phase, and that too shall pass! Things you can do:
- Maintaining adequate daytime feeds, top-ups might even be needed!
- Practice! Practice! Practice! Those new skills during the day so that baby’s crib does not become a practice field for pull-ups, crawling, jumping, and all those new learned/discovered tricks!
- STICK to your routine and the strategies you’ve implemented for naptime and bedtime
- Hugs, cuddles, extra love and care during the day with a teething ring, clean cold cloth to bite on, and remedies that your doctor recommended.
- Don’t forget to take extra care of yourself too, Mama!
