Lack of Space?
Almost a year after the video went viral, Mellina Darnell shared another inside her kids’ shared room. From climbing out of the crib to playing with a fan, her kids pulled all sorts of shenanigans. So the decision to share the room proved to be great. Darnell said, “All three kids choose to sleep in the same room; despite having options to sleep independently. They all require unique sleep requirements, but they can make it work.”
Darnell’s motherhood taught her that bedtime is often the most challenging part of the day. She had to come up with a routine that worked for everyone. She usually conducts team meetings where the family discusses their bedtime plans. Darnell was very serious about establishing a strict exit time and making a chart with pictures of their nighttime routine. However, once you establish the rules, it is necessary to stick to them, but Darnell is no stranger to breaking them.
