10 Simple Ways to Get More Sleep with a Newborn

Newborns are pretty much one of the cutest things on the planet, but they sure don’t let you get much sleep! Sleep deprivation is probably one of the most challenging parts of new parenthood, simply because it makes all the little challenges feel so much more amplified. A crying newborn seems a lot more overwhelming when you’re running on three hours of sleep. That said, this is a relatively short season of life. Even though it may not feel like it in the moment, I promise your baby will sleep eventually, and there are definitely some things you can do to help you get a little more sleep in the mean time. Here are 10 little tips that helped me get more sleep when my daughter was a newborn…and I promise “sleep when the baby sleeps” isn’t one of them!

The whole 10 months of pregnancy I would compile list after list, send countless texts to my husband, and read baby name books everyday. The only name we agreed on was Baylor. While I am so glad that we chose that name, along the way I found a lot of names that I really loved but my husband denied pretty quickly. Here are some of my favorite names that didn’t make the cut.

Surviving 3 Kids: The Newborn Stage

Just 6 weeks ago, I gave birth to my third baby girl. My husband and I now have a 3 year-old, a 2 year-old, and a newborn. No part of it is a piece of cake. Quite honestly, 3 kids is a handful. I don’t have enough eyes or enough hands! They all demand a lot of attention in their own ways and it has certainly stretched me as a mom. Figuring out the daily routine with 3 kids has been a game of problem solving, really. Some things have worked beautifully, while others have flopped in my face. The learning curve has been so great that I thought I’d start a series here on Disney Baby called Surviving 3 Kids. Each post will focus on a different facet of life with 3 little ones. Today’s subject? The newborn stage…

My Little Swimmer and Our Water Fun Essentials

Ever since her very first summer, my daughter has been a water baby. My husband and I joke that her love of water stems from the fact that I had a water birth and she was born in a tub, but whatever the case, the girl is a fish. Once the weather warms up just enough we are finding ways to enjoy the water. She loves oceans, lakes, swimming pools, wading pools, fountains, sprinklers and even just playing with buckets of water in the front yard all with equal vigor. Obviously this means that we have to be well-stocked when it comes to water play essentials and here are a few of our favorites…
