3 tips for offering a bedtime snack for toddlers
All The Sleeps

To bedtime snack or not to bedtime snack, that is the question. Here are some bedtime snack tips that I’ve put together with Alyssa, the dietitian behind nutritionforlittles.com.    Bedtime snack for toddlers tip #1 If you offer a bedtime snack, it should be offered consistently as a “built in” part of your nightly routine. Bedtime snacks can be a great thing but we don’t want to only offer it if they don’t eat well at dinner. We get to decide the “when” of eating which means we set the schedule.  So we assess our kids' current eating and what hunger cues we see and decide on ..read more

6 things I want you to know about me, a sleep consultant

Hi there! My name is Carianna Gibb and I'm the founder of All The Sleeps.    I recently went down an anti-sleep training account rabbit hole and was pretty disturbed by some of the awful things these accounts claim about sleep consultants.    Things like fear mongering, preying on desperate parents, charging thousands of dollars, promising that a baby will be sleeping through the night in 3 nights, and basically that we are just awful people who take advantage of others.... Of course, all while they themselves are selling something too.    Anyways, it prompted ..read more

How to handle parental preference at bedtime
All The Sleeps
by Carianna
2M ago
If you’re a parent, you either know the feeling of being the preferred parent and then only one who can put your child to bed…. Or you know the feeling of being the non-preferred parent and therefore unable to help much at bedtime. Honestly, both of these feelings suck.   The preferred parent gets touched out and worn out from the constant parenting and can feel resentful toward their partner. The non-preferred parent gets hurt feelings from being “unwanted” by the child and can feel helpless to do anything to assist the preferred parent.   It’s not a fun place to be but unfortuna ..read more

5 ways your partner can help with night wakings
All The Sleeps
by Carianna
7M ago
Recently, I had a call with a mom and she expressed to me that if we worked together, her husband wouldn't be available to help with night wakings because he had to go to work during the day and she didn't- she just stayed home with the kids. Plus she had been handling all the night wakings to this point because she exclusively breastfed so there was nothing her husband could do anyways.    This mom was also *drowning* in sleeplessness and desperately in need of help. She spent much of the conversation on the verge of tears because of her sleep deprivation and how much she felt sh ..read more
