Mom Hack That Could Help You Get More Sleep (Hopefully)
With Daylights Savings Time upon us this weekend, moms of young kids know it can screw up even the best sleep schedules. So here's a quick trick to getting a little more rest in the morning.
Not too long ago I needed a way to get a little more sleep in the mornings.
My almost two-year-old wasn't so happy hanging out in her bed in the A.M., but I definitely wanted a little more time in mine!
I knew that putting some toys in the crib could help, but she tossed and turned so much in her sleep I was nervous about what I was putting in with her.
So I tried this...
I bought one of those in car organizers...the ones you hang over the back of a car seat with tons of pockets for the things in your car...and I hung it in her crib.
Then I loaded it up with books and a few smaller toys, so everything was out of the way while she slept, but within her reach for getting into once she was awake.
And it worked like a charm!
Now every morning instead of hearing her crying for me to come get her, I wake up to the sounds of my daughter talking to her stuffed animals or "reading" her books. And I get an extra 30-45 minutes to hang out in bed...it's awesome!
