Get your baby to sleep... and a giveaway.

Sleep can be a hectic time, while it should be a time to relax and calm down so our babies can calm down and sleep, it can so often turn into a fight where everyone is overtired and stressed out. 

I struggled for a long time with putting my little one to sleep, I think our biggest problem was a lack of bedtime routine. I know, that everybody says that, but it doesn't have to be a complicated, bath, book, song, type thing.

 As a mother in school; most nights I don't have the time to do all of that, I need to study, cook diner, and clean. I don't need to add cleaning a bathroom full of water to that list! 

So my best tip for getting a baby to sleep is picking something simple! That you really have time to do each night, for us its just reading a book, we have a select few books that are relatively short, calm, and repetative so that Annabella can get involved in reading them. Its important that they be nice calm books rather then books about monsters or silly animals. This tends to make them silly, so I try to avoid books like that. The classic Goodnight Moon is always a good choice. My mother bought Annabella a book called I Love You More by Liza Baker, and we read that almost every night. Its a nice way for both of us to go to sleep.

If you have child who has a cold, you might face some serious sleep troubles. Especially if you're child is still nursing. It can be very difficult for them to breath and eat at the same time, and sometimes this can get frustrating for a little one. 

Maty's Baby Chest rub is an all natural chest rub designed to clear up congestion in infants as young as 3 months old! 

With Eucalyptus, Menthol and Chamomile it not only clears it calms. Its Menthol and Petroleum free!  A great choice for those nights and days when the nasal aspirator just isn't cutting it.
