Allison's Best Sleep Tips and Her Bedtime Routine
At Allison's first pediatrician appointment after the birth of her son, the doctors were shocked that she looked so well rested while holding her three day old baby. I know what you're thinking. Well rested? With a newborn? I mean, is that even a thing?

Everyone likes to talk about how sleep deprived you're going to be with a newborn. Oddly enough, those same people then turn around and want to know if your baby is sleeping through the night (and silently judge you if your answer is no).
Babies are NOT even supposed to sleep through the night but there are absolutely some things breastfeeding mamas can do to make night time SO MUCH easier.
