  3. Oh toddlers….have you seen this article/trend of babies sleeping outside in Scandinavia? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21537988 Would love to hear your take on it! As a Californian, I can’t stand to be outside for very long once the temperature falls below 50F much less sleeping outside below freezing.
