Baby Talk

Real Talk with Real Moms // Sleep

Is it just me or is a ‘good sleeper’ the holy grail of babies?  You can hope for a boy or girl, a head of hair or your husband’s dimples, but if we’re being totally honest here we’d likely trade it all for that urban legend of a baby who comes home from the hospital doing 12 hour stretches through the night.  (Has anyone actually met this baby?!)
