Sleep Training & the Best Lovey for Babies

Does your babe have a lovey? We first started using one with our oldest daughter, Vienna, when we were sleep training.

Happiest when found wrapped in a blanket, in comfy clothes, drinking extremely hot coffee or tea with friends or family. So, there’s nothing more fitting than me sharing a few cozy-inspired gifts and stocking ideas for the Mamas this year. Who knew that gifting socks & bath products could look so gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜‰
