The late night diaper changes stop

The tantrums get better too

The endless feedings end

The hard parts get easier. I promise.

And then one day you’re watching the 6th @itsjojosiwa concert of the evening. It’s so worth it. Hang in there ❤️

PARTNER SUPPORT⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Although my hubs may not hear the baby at night 😂 we do our best to support each other through this parenting thing. And it's something I stress with my clients: you can't parent alone. You cannot do it all. You're not meant to. You MUST negotiate time with your partner. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
And for some of us, it means needing more alone time than the average bear. After 18 months of non-stop work, solo-parenting during a pandemic, growth/ change I needed a break. I've been on here like 8 times this last while saying how I'd take a break without actually really doing it. I'd work, I'd take clients, I'd answer messages and basically not rest at all. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
So I asked for what I needed. Hubs stepped up and I took 3 days away from everything. But for REAL this time. I didn't work, I didn't parent, I didn't IG and I CHILLLLLLED the heck out. I ate great food, saw great friends, lived life on my own schedule and came back new. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
But I was able to do this because my husband is a partner in every sense of the word: he parents (doesn't babysit), he knows how to do the girls hair and he's badass at making lunches. This needs to happen to make a marriage work--to make sure everyone stays sane. Make it a priority to give each other breaks throughout--guys that's some FREE self-care. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Here's what showing up looks like for us:⁠⁠
Delegating wake ups/ bedtimes⁠⁠
He cooks/I clean⁠⁠
I arrange school stuff/He arranges everything that happens outside (including cars)⁠⁠
etc..etc..⁠⁠
⁠⁠
What's your division of labour? How do you make it work? SHARE those ideas and help spark even more ideas at keeping it together!! 👇🏼 ⁠⁠

#toddlers are a vibe. ⁠⁠
*Yes! Toddler regressions are a thing. Between the ages of 18-36 months, your child will experience a tremendous amount of growth! Think language acquisition and personal autonomy. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
*Boundaries are meant to be tested (and yes! It feels good to your toddler when. you hold boundaries firm!) When toddlers are out of control, they want to be sure their parents are steady.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
*It's healthy for you to set expectations. Routines feel good to kids. Don't feel defeated when a child pushes back on an expectation--think of it as them asking "are these still the rules? I'm just checking!" When parents continually move the goals posts and change the rules, children feel out of control and frustrated. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
*Little People. BIG FEELINGS. Our children are entitled to their feelings when we hold boundaries! They may scream, cry, tantrum, hit or yell. ⁠⁠
It's normal. It's our job to be there for those feelings in a calm way. Let them know you understand why they are frustrated and hold the boundary anyway. ⁠⁠

💤 The Science of Sleep Pressure 👶🏽
While we're on the topic of naps--let's discuss sleep pressure.

Sleep pressure is --quite literally--the pressure to want to sleep. I like to tell my clients to imagine that they all live with a balloon in their heads. The balloon 'fills' with sleep pressure all day long.

🎈Overfill the balloon? It pops (overtired).
🎈 Underfill the balloon? It empties quickly (undertired/short naps)
🎈Don't acquire enough air in the balloon overnight? You run out of steam (split nights and early mornings)

This means we need appropriate 'air' at all times to sustain naps and nights.

AS ALWAYS--if your baby is sleeping well and doing all the things you want to do--amazing! Ignore this advice and live your best life babe 💋! If you're still suffering from short naps, early mornings, protests or long and prolonged night wakings--this is very useful information.

This is a clip from our 'Myth of Overtiredness' Episode on @theslumberpartypodcast! While the podcast may be taking a summer break--the pods live on! Make sure you're subscribing for all your child sleep needs!

I took these photos in Jan 2018. It was right before Bell Let's Talk Day. I remember wanting to post about my anxiety but not having the words. I was so firmly in my anxiety. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I'm not well in these photos. My hair is falling out, my body was vibrating in fear, I was losing weight and I wasn't sure why. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The myth of having it all, doing it all, and being all for everyone is just that: a myth. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We HAVE a limit⁠⁠
We DO NOT have infinite capacity. ⁠⁠
We ARE breakable. Fragile. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We were never supposed to work all day, parent all night, be on the PTA, and make every Halloween costume by hand. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
My default is GO. Mostly because that's what kept me safe during scary times and from scary people and it's easy for me to fall back into that mindset. It's harder for me to do less. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Doing less meant disappointing others. Meant the possibility people wouldn't like me. A chance at feeling unsafe.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Doing less, saying no, and true relaxation still feels strange but I do it anyway. Because I never want to be 2018 Amanda again. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Here's your permission to say no, do less and prioritize yourself. It's your 'sign'. Just slow. You're so worth it ❤️⁠⁠

#newbornlife seems like a million years ago now. And my experience with each girl was so different. ⁠⁠
With W I was an earth-mama goddess, and with N I was overcome with fear and anxiety. I now know that no two experiences are the same between friends, siblings, or your own children. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
After W, I remember distinctly saying to a friend that your experience in motherhood was a choice. That it wasn't hard and that you just needed a good attitude. Then N came and I had my entire ass handed to me and I never said that again. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I know what it's like to have a euphoric mothering experience. I know what it's like to be crawled into a ball wailing--and you're not sure why. I know what it's like to have a baby who sleeps all the time and I know what it's like to have the 20-minute catnapper. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I'm just here to tell you something I wish someone told me: your little newborn baby is a person. My beautiful girls have *always* been themselves. From walking/rocking W up and down hallways to persistent N who refused to be swaddled---they've always been themselves. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Those small bundles are misleading--they are complex creatures. With thoughts, feelings, preferences and personalities. They are not 'good babies' or 'bad sleepers'--they are 100% themselves. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
And then one day, you'll blink and there they are (begging to go to @jojosiwa concerts 😂)⁠⁠
⁠⁠
You're doing a great job. Promise. Honour thy baby.

You just had a baby and like...WTF 🤯 😵‍💫🥴. No one prepared for you for the sleep thing right? ⁠⁠
Well--I will!⁠⁠
SAVE and SHARE these tips (or send them to a friend who's still in shock 😂). ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The big takeaways are that EVERYTHING I reversible and there's no such thing as a bad habit that is getting everyone sleep. Be mindful of safe sleeping practices/positions (NEVER on a couch!) and do what you can to survive. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The earlier they start, the better it is for YOU and baby!⁠⁠

It's #maternalmentalhealth week and I'm bringing to goods to keep you sane during one of the most trying times in your life: new parenthood combined with COVID isolation. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Tips to survive:⁠⁠
1. Make a sleep priority. Just get it however you can.⁠⁠
2. Have a 'phone-a-friend': someone you can be REAL with. The good/bad/ugly⁠⁠
3. Move! Moving releases feel-good hormones that last!⁠⁠
4. You time--sit for 10 minutes alone in your closet. Whatever you can manage--do it. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
But let's be clear: PPA/PPD isn't helped by a few quick tips. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Please reach out to a professional if you have experienced prolonged baby blues, anxiety or anger. It's ok to need help! It's still the best thing I've ever done!⁠⁠

Hey guys! Im looking for the member's page and can't seem to locate it. Please help! :) Thank you!
Zach is now only taking one hour naps each one - whereas before it was 2 hours and/or 1.5 hours .. I see that he entered a new leap should I wait 7 or 10 days to see if it will settle back to his normal napping time
Sleep Question for You from a Halo Mom!!! My son is almost 7 months. He sleeps in his crib pretty good but he will not self soothe. When he wakes up in the night (usually 1-2 times) he will freak out unless I nurse him. Same for naps I have to nurse him to sleep then transfer him to his crib. I’ve tried putting him down when he’s drowsy but the moment I put him in his crib he’ll be wide awake and when I leave him he’ll just cry non stop. I’m so lost with what to do. My daughter was sleeping through the night by 3 months and could put herself back to sleep no problem. Please help lol!
I would recommend Amanda to every new parent. Prior to having her help, our 7 month old refused to sleep in her crib, coslept with us, needed to be rocked and comfort nursed the whole night. Suffice to say I was exhausted but being a first time mom I was unsure how to help my baby break these sleep habits. Having Amanda there to walk us through the process was so much help. She created a tailored sleep plan for us and answered any of our questions. She truly cares and it shows, she was always reassuring us along our journey. I would have never thought it was possible but the very first night our baby slept alone and didn’t need me to rock her or nurse her for hours. Shortly after our baby was sleeping through the night. It would have never been possible without Amanda’s help.
Before working with Amanda, our baby only napped on people during the day, and would wake at LEAST once a night (4 times a night during her sleep regression). This meant carefully timing our meals, bathroom breaks and whole day around her nap schedule, and an overall very cranky mom and dad. Now, we have a happy baby who goes to sleep on her own for naptime and bedtime, and stays asleep throughout the night. We need to wake her from naptime because she's napping too much - what a turnaround at 4 months old! Thank you Baby's Best Sleep!
hey Amanda! hope its ok to post a q here?? Wondering if there is a sleep regression at 3yrs old? my daughter has turned in to a nightmare over night. The stalling bedtime I can handle, its when we actually say enough and put her in her crib she loses her mind...aside from this being no fun, its derailing any plan to move her brother in to the room - thoughts?
Thank you Amanda for getting our twin boys sleep trained in a week while they had colds, that is superstar status!
What a wonderful "helping service" you offer Namaste
It's official, Reid, at 3 years and 8 months is done napping. Bittersweet because I feel like I really have no baby now, but also happy with the freedom that comes from no naps (and an earlier bedtime!). Any tips on encouraging some "down time" in the afternoon?
