At Sleepy On Hudson, we believe that good sleep is an essential foundation to overall family health and happiness. Every day, we craft highly tailored sleep solutions, schedules, and routines that support the developmental picture and unique temperament of an individual child as well as the family as a whole. When you have a plan that is right for your child and for you, then you are no longer trying yet another thing and hoping sleep gets better, and you can be consistent and confident and ensure better nights for now and for the long run.

Today I am running a workshop for Hudson River Park Parents to discuss sleep during the first six months. I am sure we will discuss much more, but I wanted to share with you the content that we will be covering.

Continuing on with this month’s theme of appreciation, I want to highlight Sara, our seasoned sleep specialist, who bring buckets of empathy to her work with tired families. As a working mom herself, Sara knows what it is like to juggle tough nights and demanding days. Moreover, Sara has personally dealt with various medical conditions that impacted her son’s sleep. She has been in the trenches and know how important the right support can be.
So in the spirit of appreciation, I thought I would share a part of Christina’s story that she posted on her Instagram account @christina_sleepyonhudson). Christina brings her A game to her work and her passion for taking care of mothers and their babies knows no bounds. She is tireless and patient. Her two young boys and sweet hubby are lucky to have her — and so are we!

Let’s just say that this version didn’t unfold as I hoped it would.
Whether you have just sleep trained, not ready for sleep training, or are wondering if it's even worth it because it’s summer and well, you know, we all slide of the tracks in some way or another, then please read on because YES you can have your cake (or popsicle) and eat it too.
So rather than write this right away, I decided to a little research on room sharing for siblings. Here is my takeaway: Room sharing is hard, but in the end it is worth it.
Hmmm, not so helpful, right? I mean, it's nice to know that in the end everyone will love each other more. But .... what about right now, your baby is waking your 3 year old up at 5am every day, what do you do now? Well? Get reading!
(Points for those of you who recognize that I learned the expression in the title above from watching countless hours of Peppa Pig), now on the task at hand: when to, how to, and even why to room share.
