Night Time Routine

A few of my friends have kids around the same age as Harlow and sleep is a topic we are constantly talking about. When Harlow was about 4 months old and I had just gone back to work, she was waking up 4-5 times a night. It was a total nightmare and I was literally … More Night Time Routine
