Sleep: It’s something we all need, and something we probably don’t get enough of.
As parents, we tend not to get enough sleep. If we want to function well and be better parents, however, we need to make this a priority. While it’s important for us to make sure that our little ones get enough sleep, it’s just as important that parents get the sleep that they need. Today we’re going to get some great tips on doing just that.
We’re talking to two sleep experts. The first is Dr. Krishna Sundar, who is the medical director of the Sleep/Wake Center at the University of Utah. The second is Natalie Willes, who is a sleep consultant at babysleeptrainer.com and is an expert on baby and toddler sleep.
Some of the topics we’ll discuss today include:
The moment that you get home with your newborn, you’re hit with the feeling that you have no idea what you're doing. Today we’re going to talk to a panel of seasoned moms about what to expect that first night and how to prepare yourself for the reality of being in charge of a brand new baby, especially if it’s your first time. No one really prepares you for how you will feel, and of course it’s different for everyone. So if you’re going to be bringing home a baby soon, you won’t want to listen to this informative and entertaining discussion!
Our speakers today are Christine, a PICU nurse and mom of four boys ages five and under; Ashley, who is the community manager at GDiapers and the mom of a nine-year-old and a toddler; and Rachel, a new mom to a baby girl.
Some of the topics you’ll hear about include:
Welcome to It Takes a Village to Raise a Parent, the podcast by Kim and Jason, the same people behind gDiapers, the diaper that’s different by design. You’ll hear from other parents, get actionable tips, and learn to be a better parent. Up to now, most parenting podcasts are about children, but there aren’t a lot of resources centered around nurturing parents.
On today’s episode, you’ll meet DJ, the host of the new podcast. He’ll talk a bit about his family and his philosophy on parenting. He will also share his hopes for the podcast how he hopes to achieve them.
We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you stop back regularly for more episodes!
