A Very Merry Christmas

This post may contain affiliate links.
I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas wherever you are this year. I hope it can be as stress free as possible and that you can enjoy it. I hope you can take time to reflect on the reason for the season, Jesus Christ. Not only His birth, but His life and ressurection also.

I thank you all for your comments and support of this blog. I love to hear from you.

I wanted to let you know that I will be taking next week off. Regular posting will recommence January 3. I know--I go 2.5 years with no breaks and then take two in one year! Good job me. I will still be answering questions, but not posting. I hope you have a lovely Christmas and holiday season!

I also wanted to point out some posts that might help you navigate the Christmas season and holidays:

Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year from Malaysia! I've been following your blog ever since Abby was born in May 2010 and have been very blessed, thank you :) I do, however need some advice. Abby is a great sleeper but needs to nap in a quiet place and preferably in a cot. this is no problem at her grandparents' homes but people have been telling me to train her to sleep "anywhere", so that she can nap while we're out. We live in a rural area, its quiet and so far our outings are either to her granparents' homes for the entire day (they live 1 hour away) or after her afternoon nap (she is a BW baby, by the way). How do I go about doing this, if I decide to do it? Abby is curious and loves to know whats going on - she doesn't sleep in church unless we're in the mothers' room, and thats the biggest disruption to her routine. Have I created a very fussy sleeper? Thank you and God bless!

Thank you everyone!

Janelle, no, you haven't created an uncommon problem. If a baby sleeps in her bed usually, she won't sleep well outside of a bed (like in arms or car seats). That is the trade-off. Those that sleep well out and about don't sleep well in bed. I prefer to have bed sleep over out and about sleep. I figure most of the kids' sleeping time is at home, so that is the preferable place to sleep well.

So I wouldn't train her to sleep in arms or carseats or anything like that. You can bring a bed when appropriate/possible.

Thank you for your advice, I needed the reassurance - Abby's the only BW kid in our circle of family/friends so we're always getting conflicting opinions and advice. I too prefer bed sleep for Abby and she likes the calm. Thanks again and God bless!
