My 4 Scheduling Secrets to Being a Productive WAHM

I often get asked how I am productive while staying at home with my son Soren full time. Don’t get me wrong, it can certainly be a challenge, especially during the seasons where they aren’t a huge fan of napping! Babies will keep you busy and on your toes throughout the day!

Sleep is precious, for baby, daddy and mommy! Having a poor nights sleep can make the next day extremely difficult to push through. Now that Soren is one year old he sleeps perfectly through the night 85% of the time, but he still has moments (teething!) where he wakes up and has a difficult time putting himself back to sleep.

To ensure a wonderful nights sleep for baby, here are a few top tips for keeping baby dreaming peacefully through the night.

It Goes So Fast

I know it’s probably the most common parenting cliche there is, but it’s true. It all goes by so fast. I should know this. Margot is my 3rd baby and so this should come as no surprise to me.

Introducing a Sippy Cup to our Exclusively Breastfed Baby

Little Miss Margot is just shy of 10 months old and has never taken a bottle. There just wasn’t ever a reason for her to. As a stay-at-home mom, I’m always near and thankfully, I’ve been able to breastfeed her since she was born. Now that she’s older and eating some meals with us at the dinner table, we wanted to introduce a sippy cup to her, so that she could have water with her food. While breastmilk is still her main source of nutrition, I’m no longer nursing her on demand or as often as I was the first few months of her life.
