Merlin Magic Sleepsuit versus Zipadee-Zip

One of the great loves of my life is sleep. I was so excited when we learned we were expecting the twinblings, but one of my biggest anxieties about their arrivals was the looming loss of sleep. So I have always been extremely curious about any product that claims to help babies sleep longer and […]

Nap Training Fail (Twice)

So, we have two kids and have failed at nap training both of them. Not a good track record. Our first child, Lion, has never been a particularly good sleeper during the day or night, though that might have been our fault (more on that in a separate post). Panda has been so different than […]

Of course he had plenty of setbacks like every baby does, like sleep regressions, teething, and a strange phase around 9 months where he woke up and played and talked to himself for over an hour every morning around 3/4am. But if there was one thing we learned with […]


Sleep Progression – The Good , The Bad and The Loud

Oh sleep. Is there anything as glorious? Or as talked about by parents? Although I am more of a quiet observer of the boards here on Hellobee, I think I can say with some certainty that the one of the most commonly talked about topics – perhaps the most talked about even – is how […]
