I didn’t realize there was a two year sleep regression until we went on week three of crappy sleep, and I found myself googling dramatic things like, “my toddler stopped sleeping, am I dying?” A regression coupled with her recent word explosion (little miss is speaking in sentences!) means that bedtime has gotten to be [...]
