Sleep Training: Day One

The Story

Let me give you some background info before I jump into the sleep training.  My daughter is now 18 months old, Masha’Allah, and I have been nursing her to sleep every night since she was born, and she has also been co-sleeping.  Little L was one of those babies that nursed every fifteen to twenty minutes for the first three months and slowly improved from there.  It was fine because LL was born on the lower end of the WHO charts, and nursing brought her up to the 98th percentile, Masha’Allah!

This isn’t a new blog but a fresh start.  I wanted to keep this blog name as it describes me perfectly.  I am a chai-addict.  I have to have my cup of tea every single day and usually twice a day.  Ideally, it’s when my daughter is taking her naps, my favorite part of the day, that I get to catch up on my thoughts, do whatever I like, and sip my chai peacefully.  And it will be most likely the time I get to blog – aaand most likely about her!

I am a new-ish mom.  Baby L is twelve months old, Masha’Allah.  I wanted to join the Club of Motherhood ever since I got married, though I appreciate now the wisdom behind waiting – just don’t tell my husband.  Truthfully, I have never felt so complete in my life as I do now.

What is the purpose of my blog?  I want this to be a place where I can share my experiences as a homemaker and specifically as a mother.  I am a teacher by profession, though I do not teach anymore, I wholeheartedly believe that a mother is the child’s first teacher.  And I take this role very seriously.  To state the obvious, the role parents play in shaping their children’s future is invaluable.

I am learning as I go, and I want this to be a place where I can share my success and my failure.  I want it to be a place where I can exchange ideas with a wider community of moms/parents.  I also hope that I can provide other moms out there with advice and tips.

Watching my baby girl eat her breakfast quietly and peacefully. Today we tried a new way to keep more food on the plate and consequently eaten rather than thrown on the floor. Success!  #montessori #montessoritoddler #montessorimom #12months #toddler #baby #montessorimuslim #muslimmom #hijabi #hijabilife #hijabimom This is when it's fun having a #babygirl. #mom #babyfashion #babyaccessories #muslimmom #muslim #hijabmom #hijabimom #hijabi #hijabilife
