More sleep for me!

So I know what you’re gonna say, another oil post?! I know. I know. But let me tell you guys how happy I am right now. Jack has been sleeping so much better. We got this new oil called cedarwood and we put it in the diffuser in his room with lavender….He woke up once. Once! And he didn’t even wake up until like 10-11 the next morning. I slept so good! Plus we had a pretty happy well rested baby the following day. Happy baby = Happy mom and dad.

Winter and sickness

So it’s winter which means it’s also cold and flu season along with everything else. So of course the one time we take Jack out shopping with us he develops the start of a cold the following two days. He was having trouble sleeping too because he was having a hard time breathing with his stuffy, runny nose. So since I have an oil diffuser I thought well we could put some lavender in it because that’s suppose to help you sleep, right? Well, I was thinking maybe I could throw in some thieves, too, because it’s suppose to help boost your immune system. When you have a sick baby you’ll do just about anything to help them. So I tried it for about 3 nights or so and my baby was back to his happy, running around, causing chaos little self. Not only that but he did sleep better than usual. Now, I know not everyone believes in the whole essential oils thing but I was super relieved my baby felt better.
