Happy Birthday to my Daddy!!
I have always been a Daddy's girl, no ifs, ands, or buts about it!
I am beyond blessed to call this man my dad!

The lovely Annahita introduced me to this lovely gem/miracle worker as she has been using it since she brought her little one home. E was about 2 1/2 weeks old and we were typically up from 12-4am every night...I was willing to try anything.
We started that night.
They have books, but the online courses are the best...at least for me. That first night I went through all of them in about 45 minutes and had my brain wrapped around the process and then explained it to The Hubs.
It is pretty much just a really good schedule, but the co-founders have fabulous tips and tricks in there that were life-changing for us and our little one. Crucial little tips in my book!
Night one....kind of long, but we were both asleep from 2-6am...huge step!
Night two....she slept the whole night! The whole night!!
I freaked out at first that morning, but doc said as long as she was gaining weight and having good healthy diapers we didn't need to wake her...she would wake us!
So we didn't...and haven't ever since!
Not only is the schedule good for baby it is good for mom and dad too...and grandparents! Everyone knows when she eats and when she goes down, makes life easier on everyone!!
And the best part, there is a little flexibility! If you are 30 minutes or an hour late, it's okay, I have done it before and it all still works out!
I seriously recommend this to everyone! I know several other momma's who use this and swear by it too....so it's not just us!
There are so many "how-to's" and "do's and don'ts" out there its hard to decide which is the best for you and your little one. I knew I wanted a good schedule and I am always about referrals from friends, so when Annahita recommended it I immediately checked it out.
And here is the best part for me, I tweeted to moms on call (@momsoncall) one night because E's blowouts woke her up at 4am two nights in a row and then she wouldn't go back down....Laura (one of the co-founders - both of which are pediatric nurses and moms of several!) not only tweeted me back she asked me to e-mail her. We e-mailed back and forth several times that night. She gave me the answers I needed and also told me how good of a job Elise and I were doing and that we should be proud of our progress!
All you new moms out there know words like that mean the world to us! It put the biggest smile on my face and reassured me that all was good!
She was honestly one of the sweetest and most genuine ladies I have met...and this was all through e-mail! HA!
You can tell she is passionate about what she does and knows what she is talking about!
Again, I highly recommend this book/classes to all you new or soon to be mommies out there....you won't regret it, I promise!!
