The 4 Month Sleep Regression: Why it Happens & How You Can Help!
Written By: Jamie Labbe, MSOwner/Founder of Oh Baby ConsultingPediatric Sleep ConsultantAs a pediatric sleep specialist, one of most common things I get asked about is whether there is an “X month sleep regression.” The short answer is yes as there are certainly noticeable sleep disruptions when your baby is working on a new skill or going through a mental leap. However, it’s actually a bit more complex than that. Though most true sleep regressions are due to progressions in other areas of your child’s development and normally subside within 1-2 weeks (if your little one was a good sleeper to begin with), there is one “regression” that is different from the rest in that it is a total reorganization of your baby’s brain and sleep cycles....

It was National Rainbow Baby Day and I just couldn't talk about it...
i did something really selfish yesterday. i know it was #nationalrainbowbabyday and Olive is my rainbow baby to celebrate. but, although it’s a celebration of our babies, it’s still hard to not reflect on the pain, loss, and grief of how those miracle rainbow babies came to be. i just didn’t have it in me to talk about. and here’s why that was selfish... while that’s ok for me to choose, we have worked so hard to build a community and platform for YOU to be able to share what you need to too. and i didn’t provide that space for you on our social platforms. i needed to not talk about my story, but i still needed to give our followers their...

Swaddling Through "Transition"
Written By: Michelle C. Sleep EZzz Consulting When a baby is brought into this great big world – it is a truly remarkable moment. You glance down at your brand-new baby and your heart bursts with love. Fast forward to that those first few months at home, desperately trying to swaddle a tired and upset baby. Some swaddling blankets can have stiff Velcro, excess blanket, and just be a plain pain for a sleep deprived parent.  Your baby was in your womb, curled up and cozy for 9 long months. Now they have entered the world, everything is cold, hard and wide-open spaces. This is where the Ollie Swaddle comes into play! Babies love the secure and snug feeling while...

6 Ways to Memorialize Your Pregnancy
Nine months of pregnancy seems an eternity when you get that little pink positive on the test stick.

Instead, we have pregnancy tests that will determine a positive just days after conception. This can make the pregnancy journey seem even longer! While you are growing, suffering morning sickness and anxiously awaiting the new addition to the family, here are a few ways to memorialize your pregnancy; both for yourself and to pass along to the child in the future.
