Baby Not Sleeping? April Contest with Nook Sleep

At SmartMom we are always looking for ways to improve sleep for our families. While creating a sleep schedule and cutting caffeine are great tips, improving sleep conditions is of the utmost importance.

Hunger and hugs aren’t the only things that wake your baby at night. She can also be awakened by getting too hot or cold during the night. Nook Sleep mattresses are designed to keep breathable materials close to your baby’s skin so her body temperature will remain more constant, eliminating the danger of overheating. Furthermore, all Nook products are made with Organic, non-toxic materials – that’s what we refer to as a “Mom Win!”

For the April contest Nook Sleep is giving away two prizes to the two most active SmartMoms in our community!
