      Hi @Ligia Escoto, thank you for writing to us. I am so sorry to hear your daughter has been struggling with the transition to daycare. Any big change like that is likely to bring change, so hopefully as she gets use to her new routine that you will find things balance out. Here is a link to an article that may help: https://www.babysleepsite.com/sleep-training/how-daycare-impacts-your-babys-sleep-schedule-and-habits/
      If you need more help, let us know! We’d love to send over more information or links to other resources that can help, just let us know how she’s struggling – if it’s with her naps, nights or both, so we can better help.
      Hang in ther!

    Hi Nicole! Our 10 month old has always seems to be serious. He smiles and laughs when someone comes up to him with a funny face or gesture but on the whole he rarely initiates laughter. Is it possible to tell at this young age?

    In many ways, his moods reminds me of me! 🙂 A little skeptical mostly..

      @Chin What I’ve learned most is that a baby is born with a certain temperament and some of his personality. True they will change, but I definitely think some they are just born with, so I definitely think it’s possible! 😀

    My baby is all smiles until he has to take a nap! We are working on a nap routine and it seems to be helping his resistance level. I get compliments on my smiley guy all the time and even when he’s angry anyone can get a smile out of him. I agree with shauna, it is hard to put a happy baby to bed!

    Ashleys last blog post..Question for you…

      @Ashley My son didn’t want to miss a thing, either! It’s so hard when they are so smiley. My youngest son is starting to resist a bit more, at times, too even when he’s tired. We still persist and then he goes to sleep pretty easily. Thankfully, he is not as persistent as his brother! Thank you for commenting!

    My 7 month old is so happy and smiley all the time, people want her picture when we’re out and about. She learned early on that it gets her what she wants! It CLEARLY affects naptime–if she doesn’t want to settle down, she tries to distract me, her daddy, and her grandma with smiling, laughing, waving, etc. Cute, hard not to laugh or smile back! So I can’t even look at her when I’m trying to convey ‘time for nappers’….

    • Nicole says:

      @Shauna Awww! So cute! That will be hard to say no to as she gets older. Daddy, watch your wallet! Ha!

    My kiddo is either ON or OFF. She’s very content or very done! I think most recently this polarity has to do with needing food or sleep.
    Her mood changes based on the environment: when there’s other kids around she’s very cautious and observant. On her own she’s a busy mover, just like mama.

      @Anne Your daughter sounds like how my eldest son used to be. He would be happy and then BAM overtired and cranky. When he was a toddler he’d be happy and then having a tantrum the next minute. He has outgrown a lot of it. When he gets hungry he does still go from happy to cranky pretty quickly, but it’s much more manageable now. Thank you for commenting!
