My baby didn’t sleep until 8 months old but now they sleep from 7-7. Honestly every baby is different and what works for one might not work for you. Here are some things I found that helped: Merlin’s sleep suit, bath with lavender soap before bed, white noise / sound machine, swaddles, weighted sleep sacks, and rocking bassinet.


My baby was a good predictable sleeper as a newborn thanks to the snoo. I called it my coparent lol. I poorly transitioned him to a crib and we mostly bedshare now. Ngl I’m too tired to realize what I’m doing at night and I still breastfeed so I’ve instilled bad habits. Routine, consistency, and their own room is everything! The feed, bath, sleep sack, book, noise machine, lights out system seems to do the trick! Good luck!


Boob + co-sleeper. They cry, roll over, give boob, don’t even have to get out of bed, 👍👍

Wondering if anyone knows of part-time gigs in this field. My current job is great, but I want to pay off debt faster, while maintaining some of my "data" skills.

Was an ETL developer for a little while. Also did a lot of SSRS, some PowerBI, and a lot of just moving/transforming data, all over 5ish years. Any help is appreciated!

Hi SP’s! Anyone here have experience with telling their child about the divorce and how he will never have certain things (like daddy sleeping over or mommy sleeping over) etc? I really need some guidance right now. Feeling really broken as my son (5) is constantly battling his feelings of wanting to be with mommy vs daddy. He often tells us, “when I’m with mommy, I miss daddy. When im with daddy, I miss mommy!” And would often cry bc he can’t have us both. We try to co-parent and be in (cont)


Hi all. Hoping this bowl provides a way for single-parents to support each other emotionally. For me my job is super demanding not only hourly but mentally and I don’t get enough sleep, can’t cook for myself, can’t exercise, etc. I know you get it. My kid (I have just 1) is amazing and she gives me so much but she also takes a lot of energy. I know you get it. Welcome to the bowl.

Hi single parents! How do you cope with being the NOT preferred parent? They say a mom and son bond is unbreakable but my son always chooses his dad 🥲 no matter how hard I try for our relationship, he always misses his dad even if they spent the whole week together. I love that their relationship is strong, but still hurts to know he’s fine without me but not his dad!
