oh yeah, the sleeping on the chest thing was a favorite at our place. i felt weird about it the first few times because it had been drilled into my head that BABIES ARE NEVER TO SLEEP ON THEIR BELLIES EVER OR THEY WILL AUTOMATICALLY DIE.

eventually, i relaxed. i've relaxed about a lot of things.

Please add your famous advice to never tell anyone where the baby is sleeping!

I heart sleep week.


The 2-3-4 thing solved so many issues for me - now we do a 3-3.5-4 thing and it's working equally as well.

I think that as babies grow into toddlers, a new set of sleep issues arise, and our main issue seems to still be bedtime. Naptime is easy - we nurse, rock in the glider for a second, and place in crib. No problem. At nighttime, we must pat for almost an hour before we can leave the room. It's draining.

I'm looking forward to the discussion this week!


Very interested in Sleep Week! My first son was about as good a sleeper as you get for a little one so my second's been a shock of reality. Lately just as things finally get predictable with him (i.e. the same thing for a week) it all changes again - of course!

Don't know you but enjoying the blog a lot so far. =)


Thank you. I will be reading avidly, hoping I am not the only one whose son (almost 11 months) will only sleep attached to my nipple.


Sleep Week...Sooooo much better than Shark Week.

Thanks for this, Moxie. Our twins are embarking on the 5 month mark and we're beginning to notice a marked change in their sleeping habits.

I'll be reading with eyes wide open.


lisa, trust me, you're not. :)


The not telling people part? Yeah, took me 8 months to learn to just start lying to people. Moxie, please just move in with me and talk me through the next, say, five years or so.

  • My expertise is in helping people be who they want to be, with a specialty in how being a parent fits into everything else. I like people. I like parents. I think you're doing a fantastic job. The nitty-gritty of what you do with your kids is up to you, although I'm happy to post questions here to get data points of how you could try approaching different stages, because, let's face it, this shit is hard. As for me, I have two kids who sleep through the night and can tie their own shoes. I've been a married SAHM, a married freelance WAHM, a divorcing WOHM, a divorced WOHM, and now a WAHM again. I'm not buying the Mommy Wars and I'll come sit next to you no matter how you're feeding your kid. When in doubt, follow the money trail. And don't believe the hype.
