Healthy Little Note: Issue #39
Hope you're having a great Memorial weekend! I'm down in Palm Springs visiting with my family. Kids are having a BLAST! Swimming, miniature golf, first go-karting (took me back... so fun!), and of course lots of overtired meltdowns too. Par for the course...
Well, I've got some fun things for you this week... first I'm going to share a great question I got from a client about rice cereal and sleeping through the night, then I have a must have grab - a promo with Bumpin Blends - you're not gonna want to miss, and lastly rounding off an article I wrote with Joovy on the safe sleep and the difference between room sharing and bed sharing.
Let's do this!

1. FACT OR FICTION? RICE CEREAL HELPS YOUR BABY SLEEP
Oh, the rice cereal debate... There always seems to be some kind of debate! Well, in this little snippet I help clear the air on this debate. Not only do I tell you what I recommend to clients (and have been forever), but I had the pediatricians weigh in and of course went to the tried and true research articles on adding rice cereal to help with sleep.
Before you check it out, what do you think the answer is, fact or fiction?

3. BED-SHARING VS. ROOM SHARING - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Safety. Safety. Safety. That's one of your many new priorities when you become a parent. You will do anything and everything to keep your new bundle of love safe. From feeding, to inspecting the poop, to sleep... to jumping in from of a car! There's nothing you wouldn't do for them.
So, Joovy and I worked together to write an article all about safe sleep. And this time it was about the difference between bed sharing and room sharing. Check out the article we put together for you on safe sleep practices... after all your little one is a number one priority.
