Remember how I had Atticus sleeping through the night by two months and thought I was super mom? I was like.. oh yeah this mom thing? Such a cinch! Lol. Rosie started sleeping through the night pretty early on and then had sleep regression and took a few months to go back to normal! It was pretty horrible and she would wake up every couple hours all night long for a few months. During that time period we realized she needed to be in her own room because with her sleeping right next to me I would jump out of bed if I even heard her stir. It took me about 6 months to be okay with Atticus in his own room and same for Rosie! It just comforts me having them right next to me so I can wake up and hear them breathing and see them. But it was making me an actual crazy person with all the sleep I was missing so it was definitely TIME. Anyways, when we decided to put her in her own room the first couple nights I was still waking up going to check on her and we realized that defeats the purpose so we got her an Owlet monitor. My brother in law and sis in law got one for their little boy who was born early and one night it went off and said his oxygen was low. They took him to the hospital and he ended up needing to stay there for a bit. It is nice for us knowing the Owlet was there for them when they needed it most. Anyways, since then I had been meaning to get one for peace of mind since I am such a worrier and with the transition into Ro’s own room it has made the last month so much better. The Owlet sock monitors your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep and is an extra set of eyes on your little one. Owlet’s technology is designed to alert you on your smartphone and the Owlet Base Station. You can learn more about it, here! PLUS, we love our Owlet so much and want to make sure everyone can experience the peace of mind it brings—so you can get $20 off your Owlet just by clicking here. Happy sleeping mamas! xo Thanks to Owlet for sponsoring this post

Where did you get her wallpaper? I’m in love with it! I’ve been looking for one like that!
I do the same thing with my lil man and he just turned a month old. This something me and my husband will look into as well.
So sweet! Yay for some peace of mind. Definitely worth it!

Hey Amber, hope you are having a good day! My second is similar age to Rosie I think, she turns 6 months today and she is waking loads in the night, I feel I have made a rod for my own back because when she was sleeping in our room as soon as she stirred I would leap up and pop a dummy in when she wasn’t even really crying. Now she is sleeping in with her sister (2yr) and is waking lots, if I go and put her dummy in she will instantly settle. The thing is sometimes she will settle for another hour and other times 10 minutes until I get up and go and put the dummy in again! Your thoughts?? think I should let her cry it out a bit to see if she settles herself? Sending you love from the other side of the world! x
Aw, this is so good to read with our little guy on the way!! I have been thinking about the owlet and it’s good to know you like it!! You are little Rosie girl are so CUTE!!
Such a good idea! Also… I want her room! haha!
The owlet sounds like a great idea for peace of mind. We used the SnuzaHero which was such a godsend – it went off a couple of times when nothing was wrong as it had slipped, but I’d rather a false alarm than a missed emergency any day. Our second little one is due in October though, so will check out the Owlet too – you can never have too many safety gadgets in my opinion! x
Wow!! This is such a great invention! You’re such an amazing mom, Amber! Thank you for sharing this and may it bring a peace of mind to all the momma’s out there who need that much needed rest. Your family is just beautiful and I always enjoy your fun pics and posts!

I’m defintely saving this one to my “future momma” wishlist! Thanks for sharing.
I am not a mom but I’ve heard about these things a lot lately…seem like such a great product for moms who don’t want to worry as much!
Cathy, your Poor Little It Girl
Such a great idea.
And I wouldn’t feel bad about keeping rosie in your room. Here in the UK we’re advised to keep them in our room until they are at least 6 months old! Not sure if it’s the same in the US.

Rosie is so precious!! Love the colors and textures you use in her room xoxox
Oh my gosh being a parent must be so scary! I mean, it’ll also be amazing obviously but I’m already protective over my college-aged sister. I can’t even begin to imagine how protective I’ll feel over my own little ones when the day comes. I’m going to have to get an Owlet too!!!
Rose is so precious!! Every time I see her on your blog or social media I just melt!

Rosie is the cutest baby!! Love her room!!????
Rosie is such a sweet angel! I´m also loving your hairstyle, so cool as usual! 🙂
Such a cute rug, I am such a sucker for West Elm I have to make myself avoid their store. I always leave with something haha. And that wallpaper is so lovely! Rosie has good taste 😉

She is too cute!
I’m having a hard time letting my baby go to sleep in his room. He is sleeping with me right now and my husband is sleeping in his room. It worked pretty good with us until we found out another boy was coming. Now we need help!!! Lol
Hope Ro gets use to her new room soon ????????
Oh, if I had that when my little ones were babies… It would have been wonderful!! Even with the monitor I was constantly checking on them. And yes… Lack of sleep is just a terrible thing.
Rosie is getting so big and beautiful!! Your photos are gorgeous per usual 🙂
Sequins are the New Black
She is so adorable!!
It is insane how big Rosie already is!! I remember seeing your post and Youtube video just when she was born. She is becoming such a beautiful (and the funniest) girl!
Amber I have been following you for awhile now and you have beautiful babies and amazing style, thanks for always being so positive on life and motherhood! This was so exciting for me to see today, it’s my husband’s company he started here in Provo and I got all giddy to see you do a shoutout. I hope you really do love it we have two kiddos close in age to yours as well and love using it on our own 4 month old girly. Have a great day!
That is so comforting knowing that your sweet baby girl is safe! I love your braid also and would love to see an easy tutorial on it! 🙂
Absolutely love the rug in her room! Although I’m not a mom quite yet, I have friend who have used monitors similar to this and they love it!
Lots of love,
Rosie is so precious!! I love the pretty colors that you used in her room! 🙂
My goodness! You have some cute kids!
This is such a good idea, I’m about to have a baby boy and I just know I’m going to be one of those paranoid worrier mamas! Also Rosie is just the sweetest 🙂
Just Little Things
Fantastic idea! Really helpful.
She has teeth! So cute- getting big so fast! And you look so pretty!
That definitely sounds useful. I’m not really a worrier in my family but I do think I would worry some if I had a kid and we were moving them into their own room. Great post 🙂
The Owlet sounds like such an amazing device and would definitely save me a lot of sleepless nights if I were a mommy!

Oh gosh, I would love one of these! I am that crazy Mama too who always wakes up and checks on Ada, even when she’s sleeping soundly next to me. She turned six months a week ago now so I’m contemplating when I should put her in her own room. She’s a pretty good sleeper now and I think she’d probably sleep even better in there, but I just don’t know if I’m ready yet!
Catherine | Hey, Mama
Technology is amazing.
Rosie is such a cutie! <3 The monitor sounds pretty good. 🙂
The Owlet would be great to have! I totally understand, anytime Lux makes a peep I’m hopping up out of bed to check on her! Having Atticus sleeping through the night at 2 months is awesome! Do you have any tips?!
Renee | Life After Lux
Your hair is so beautiful! I saw in a post a while back when you used ouai products and I was wondering if you are still loving any of their products. Also, I LOVE the nickname Ro for Rosie! She’s the cutest thing ever!
sounds like such a cool baby monitor. These photos are adorable
She is adorable! And how incredible is technology these days?! PS – love her bottom two teeth/don’t want her to grow up.
these photos are so cute,lovely post xo
She’s just so precious!!! Love all of these photos! Also, your rug is amazing, looks like a soft, fluffy heaven, perfect for cuddling and crawling too. 😀
I love that something like this is available! It will totally put me at ease.
Thanks for sharing!
What an amazing product!!! I love that there are technologies like this available!

I heard such great things about the Owlet monitor and wish I knew about it when my first baby was a newborn! I remember always checking to see if she was breathing lol.
Lovely pictures of you and Rosie! <3
Love it! Check out my post if you want a inside on the life of an American teenager! http://Www.oliviaschueller.com
would have loved one of these when our little one was a itty bitty. i totally understand about turning into a crazy person. i was so tired, but needed to make sure they were breathing!
Such beautiful pictures! And Rosie is just so SO cute! Love your braid too 🙂 xx
Love seeing pictures of your sweet family! Rosie is so adorable and looks like such a happy baby!
I saw this last year and was thinking about getting it! Then I got a monitor that has zero radiation and camera and haven’t used it…primarily because right now I do feel like sleep mummy and my son Chance has been sleeping through the night since the beginning! Except he wakes me every few hours for a feed and my husband thinks it’s time to send him to his room which we did up nicely here http://www.whiitelist.com/2016/06/eames-3-minimalist-nursing-chairs.html?m=1 but I’m still not comfortable, this might make me feel better! Most probably best to send him to his room as he’s nearly 7 months! Ha! X
