    While I was in Ethiopia last week, Bee slept through the night every. single. night. For those keeping score at home, that’s seven nights in a row, something she’s never done in her entire life. (Except for when she’s in the womb, maybe? Can’t be sure.) Anyway, of course it didn’t stick. The very moment mama walked in the door with bags in tow, she was up to her old tricks of waking up multiple times to host crib dance parties at midnight. She knows she’s got a sucker in me, that’s for sure.

    And even though we have an anti-sleeper on my hands, I can’t help but pause to share Anatology, a line of graphic sleep sacks from French mama Delphine (love that name!) Miquel. Created from soft, natural materials and locally made in France, Delphine’s debut collection of modern sleepwear is filled to the brim with trend-driven graphic prints. Very HAY¬†meets MARIOS, yes?

    I love seeing “grown-up” trends filtered down and applied to the littles, especially given the endless options for re-purposing around the home. How sweet would these patterns look as mini throw pillows for a child’s bedroom once baby outgrows them? Dreamy indeed.

    p.s.More darling sleep-inspired goods.

    • such cute sleepers! Maybe little Bee has separation anxiety? The same thing just happened to me and our almost one year old after i spent 2 nights away, and that’s what i’m telling myself he’s going through. I’m happy he at least behaved well in the hands of others, and i didn’t force sleeplessness upon other adults. But oh gosh. so tired. It’s good to know that this isn’t completely out of whack for “older” babies.

      • Oh, you are totally right – we’re definitely in the thick of separation anxiety. We’ll get through it, right? :)

      Nothin’ like nighttime with momma!

    • These are without a doubt the most gorgeous sleep sacks I’ve seen! I’ll have to save my pennies. The panda, the panda!
      And only slightly related, I thought I’d share what was a godsend for us when we weaned my oldest daughter from nighttime nursing (my 2nd is 9 months old so we’re very much up at night still!):

      Dr. Jay Gordon has a very gentle method of changing sleep patterns, and I think I stretched mine out even longer than the 10 days he suggests (it’s all a blur really!) when my she was 18ish months old. Not implying it’s the right time for you two, but maybe it’s something that might be helpful down the line. xo

      • Thank you for this link, Tania – I’ll totally check it out! We’ve been semi-weaning around here, so the timing is kind of perfect. I so appreciate the helpful hint! :)
