Sleep and kids.
Do these two combos ever mix? Am I the only person in the world that struggles with their kids sleeping? What is wrong with my crazy kids?
These are the thoughts that go through my head every night when I put my kids to sleep. Austin was never a good sleeper and once he got into a good routine Charlotte showed up and threw a wrench into our schedule. We were headed nowhere fast and I had to do something to change it fast.
Our routine prior to purchasing a Dohm, was lay in Austin’s bed as I nursed charlotte to sleep then roll her off into bed with him. It took anywhere from 1 - 2 hours. Then I would sneak out only to hear Charlotte wake once more and nurse her down again.
Enter the Dohm.
Talk about Heaven on Earth. This thing rocked our world, but in a good way. The first night it came in the mail I plugged it in and prepared myself for battle. I explained to Austin that being 3, he needed to be a big boy and fall asleep on his own. I stood in the hallway and watched as it wooed him into a deep sleep. He asked me to come in and kiss him once. That was it!
Next was Charlotte who had NEVER slept in her crib. I nursed her, rocked her and rolled her in her crib. Out cold. I snuck out of the room and waited for chaos to erupt…1 hour, 2 hour, 3 hour nothing. Eventually I got bored and went to bed. Charlotte woke up once to eat and went right back to sleep in her crib, Austin didn't wake till the next morning around 8 am.

When I say these things are miracles I am not lying. The price of the Dohm made me hesitant to purchase them at first, but now knowing how good they work, I think about all the sleepless nights they could have saved us from! My husband works crazy hours, and is forced to sleep during the day. He uses it to drown out all the noise the kids make when he is trying to sleep. Check out my link here to find where you can purchase your own Dohm for baby.
This is not a paid post and trust me I know we (My husband & I) created this monster by snuggling and smothering our kids to death at bedtime. I am an affiliate and I do make a small percentage from links, enough for a cheap bottle of wine to chug when my kids go to sleep but not enough to send them to college. All that aside, I simply LOVE this product and felt as though I needed to share it with the rest of the world and when your kids start sleeping longer you will have a little more time for yourself.
