Much needed advice!

So...after 17 months of doing things my way, and listening to friends/family on how to get our toddler to sleep, I was referred to MommySOS website and podcast. Jen’s advice, coupled with her own real-life experiences, helped us successfully put our little one to sleep at night.
Rested baby = rested momma!
