Despite my wife and I having the best of intentions, I feel like one or both of us will lapse into unsafe sleep practices each night with our son (3 weeks old).
We take turns with him overnight and it’s common for him to be a cuddle bug who gets fussy when we put him down in his bassinet. This has resulted in the bad habit of us falling asleep with him on our chests – with the intention of moving him to the bassinet after he falls into a deep enough sleep, but sometimes not quite getting there.
Does anyone have any tips or recommendations to help ourselves be better, even when we’re so tired? I feel like I end up fighting with the version of ourselves when we’re sleepy-brained because those people are much more likely to take risks that I don’t agree with when I’m fully awake. Hopefully that makes sense.

Purchase for the Planet
Receiving a “real” card or photo book in the mail (rather than texts that get lost in the shuffle!) goes a long way. There’s something extra special about a beautiful invitation hanging on the fridge and favorite family pictures displayed on the coffee table. Paper Culture takes that joy to another level by ensuring your purchase helps protect our planet.
From baby shower invites to stationary, Paper Culture is known for their range of beautiful, modern designs. They offer free designer assistance, even before an order is placed. You can also upload your own designs for a personal touch. This awesome company is all about sourcing sustainable materials and reducing the environmental impact of their manufacturing processes.
Products are made with 100% recycled paper and other eco-friendly materials. For each order placed, Paper Culture plants a tree where reforestation is most needed. So far, they’ve planted upwards of 1,000,000 trees! They also put resources back into mother earth by offsetting the entire carbon footprint of production through carbon credits in partnership with CarbonFund.org.
By choosing cards and books from Paper Culture, you’re not only checking something major off your to-do list (hello, Mother’s Day book for grandma or long overdue moving announcement!), but you’re playing an important role in making the planet a better place for your little ones.
