Sleep.  Oh my god sleep.  I don’t think I have slept a normal night (no exaggeration here) in nearly three years.  Why?  Because of my beautiful, adorable, frat boy of a son.  He never sleeps.  Ever.  I went nuts trying to find ANY solution to this sleep conundrum.  That’s when I stumbled on Alexis Dubief of  She literally helped save my sanity.  And, I want to do the same for you.  So we invited Alexis to speak with us on ParentCast all about the ever-elusive sleep.  Hit the jump to find out her extremely useful tips and tricks…
