Finally, they share their BFPs and BFNs for the week. Shanna’s toddler is 2.5 years old, and Laura’s toddler is 2.5 years old. Laura’s baby is 6 months old.
- Hatch Baby Rest* Laura uses this nightlight and sound machine in Auggie's room as a "time-to-rise" device that lets him know when it's rest time and when it's wake time. The best part is that you can control it from your phone!
- Dr. Becky's "Sibling Dynamics" Course This is the parenting course about sibling dynamics that Shanna talks about in this episode.
- Wildlife Learning Center Shanna enjoyed touring this wildlife center with Elle and her friends (well except for the porcupines LOL).
