Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your infant tip sheet months ago. I just forwarded a copy to a new dcf that will be starting in Sept. I already have a good feeling about starting healthy sleep habits with THIS one and not making the same mistakes. I've been emailing back and forth with mom and discussing some of the particulars on the info sheet, especially sleeping. I told her I'd like to sleep train between 4-6 months and she was right on board with that. I also reiterated the baby needs to take a bottle before starting dc and she completely agreed.
Keeping fingers crossed.

That is great!! Glad it was helpful!

I too, like so many others struggled with getting a new child under age 1 to become part of our daily routine. I tried to identify the issues so that I could come up with some sort of solution that worked.

I figured out that most of the issue was the parents view of child care and the providers view of child care (in regards to infants) were VERY different.

I figured if I can bridge that gap it would make the transition from home/maternity leave to daycare much smoother for everyone involved so I created the "Helpful Tips for Infants" info sheet and it's been a life saver for me since.


SUPER happy to hear it was useful for you thus far and that this next baby you get into care is a breeze for napping and awake time!

BC wondering if you would also be willing share with me. Iíll have two infants starting in the Fall and while they are both currently enrolled families I did not start one until after 6 months and one I was more of a nanny in their home before opening my child care so circumstances are different now. I was thinking about writing someone up myself either way!
