  1. Genevieve how did you get Griffin to start sleeping through the night at 14 Months? You mentioned in a nursing toddler post that you would share the details. After almost a year of not sleeping through the night and refusing to do Crying it out any tips would be helpful!

  2. I am currently stuck in this cycle using all these sleep props plus a pacifier! What are your thoughts on sleep training? I just can’t get myself to let him cry for an hour… but I need more than 30 min naps and 2 hrs of sleep at night! He is 3mo and we need some tips!

  3. Hi there, this was funny to watch but for a second I thought you were serious about sleeping your baby this way. I thought, whoa she’s crazy! After 11 years I finally had baby no 2 and all I do is nurse her and as soon as she stops nursing I place her down to sleep. People keep telling me I’m lucky because she only wakes up once at night to nurse. I do, swaddle her so she won’t wake up herself and also co-sleep. I think knowing I’m right next to her helps her sleep through the night…idk just what I think!

  4. Hmm, my sleep technique just involves nursing. Wait 20 minutes after they fall asleep to try putting them down, so they are in a deeper sleep.

  5. LOLOL! Oh my gosh, just watching this for the first time! I did so many of the same things with babies #1 and #2. Babies #3 through #6…”go to sleep” and closed the door. Now I’m watching my daughter with her newborn son. How is she so much better at it than I was? LOL!

  6. Hi Genevieve,
    I noticed your co-sleeper/crib besides the bed. Can you share more details about it with us – and about your decisions regarding sleeping, co-sleeping, cribs, etc. Having a baby in a few months and feeling overwhelmed with sleeping arrangements!
    Thanks Genevieve!

  7. This is hilarious, and so so true. I passed up watching this video at first because I read the title and was like yea right I bet it wont work for me… Ha that is about the technique we have done as well. Too funny, Love all your videos! XOXO

    • Thanks mama :)! Glad to know the sleep insanity is widespread :)>

  8. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I showed this to my husband because we have SO BEEN THERE!!!

    • Oh my gosh, you know it sistah! What a journey it has been… didn’t think I would spend so much time thinking, planning, soothing and focusing on SLEEP! It’s getting a BIT better. Griffin is sleeping 12 hours at night which is fantastic. It’s just the daytime naps that are killing me… he’s the master of the cat nap :). Ah, good thing I love him so much and that he makes my heart melt. Hope you and your handsome son are doing well!

  9. FOR REAL! I’m so tired of following the Happy Baby sleep techniques, I’ll try yours 🙂
