Rocking Motherhood

I discovered the ‘Rocking Motherhood’ series by reading a post by Josefine over at My Danglish Family. The idea originally came from Patricia at White Camellias. The idea is pretty simple and I really enjoyed reading Josefine’s post, so I thought I’d join in too!

13 Months Old: Sleep Update

I haven’t blogged properly for a while because myself and the twins have been ill. So, I thought today I would give you an update on the girls sleep. We’ll start off with daytime naps. They have two. The first at 9am. R has around 30 minutes, whereas M varies between 30-60 minutes. I don’t let them sleep past 10am as this then impacts their second nap, which is straight after lunch at 1230pm and both girls have 90 minutes. Sounds ok you might think? Well in theory yes but in reality…no! Why? We are still swaddling and rocking both… [Read More]
