“Cherish the moments. Soak it in. It is perfectly fine to love on your baby and hug and hold them while they sleep. As a NICU nurse and former Pediatric ER nurse I advise against co-sleeping. They now sell bassinets that pull right up to the bed and some can attach to the bed. This would be a safer option. And baby shampoo is great on formula, breast milk or baby poop stains. Just a dollop to pretreat then wash later.”

“Don’t be afraid to sleep train. Cuddles are amazing! But them sleeping the right amount is even better more smiles and happiness through the day if they sleep when they need to”
