Lila's practically unused crib. We had high hopes before reality hit!

Middle of the night musings on sleep training, or lack thereof

Except that she is sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor rather than her bed. Nevertheless, at least she is in her room. And will remain [...]

Travel and the 18 Month Sleep Regression
