How Low Blue Light Products Can Improve Sleep

Does your child watch tv, play video games or play on the ipad in the evenings? Do you fall asleep watching tv or reading with one of those clip-on book lights? Do you have lots of overhead light on in the evening? Do you notice you (or you child) aren’t getting sleepy when you should […]

The Solution for 5 “Lovey” Problems

I recently was introduced to an interesting new product that can solve many of those problems you may have with loveys: worrying about safety with young babies leaving them behind – in restaurants, at the park, on airplanes daycares not allowing loveys in their cribs throwing the lovey out of the crib 52 times before […]

The Best Blackout Shades for a Nursery or Child’s Bedroom

Have you tried a few different window coverings to help block out that perimeter light and found that none of them actually do a good job? There are a ton of blackout shades on the market.

Help For the Childproofing Nightmares

“I feel like my son is a caged lion,” lamented a tired mom I recently spoke with.  Hmmm.  How so? Apparently her little whippersnapper of a 2.5 year old is well-versed in hiding. And roaming around. In the middle of the night. She explained that he had been a crib jumper and because of the […]

HAPPYFAMILY Makes Healthy Eating Easier

Before embarking on this sleep consulting adventure, I wore many hats. One of them was writing a healthy living blog.  I had gotten rid of my asthma, solved my infertility problems and just gotten healthier by changing my diet, taking supplements and exercising, and I learned that many people wanted to know how I did […]
