Vermont Public Radio Interview: EP 23
35:18
<p>A few months ago I finished my book, a 3.5 year effort of sweat, tears, and loneliness (writing is lonely business). But it was worth all the sweating and crying because now I am an author. When you are an author you get membership to secret underground writer clubs and everybody wants to be your...</p> <p><a class="more-link" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/vermont-public-radio-interview-ep-23/">Read More</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/vermont-public-radio-interview-ep-23/">Vermont Public Radio Interview: EP 23</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com">Precious Little Sleep</a>.</p>

Becoming a Parent: Guilt, Failure, an Unrealistic Standards: EP 21
38:06
<p>Most people use the 9 months of pregnancy as a time to learn how babies work (generally) and stock up on essential baby gear so they’ll be ready when said baby arrives.

7 Unhelpful Baby Sleep Myths – EP 19
48:52
<p>I often see smart thoughtful parents getting tripped up by the same stumbles time and again. These sleep myths or pervasive beliefs, for lack of a better word, that push parents to do things that are at times unhelpful or even self-sabotaging. Or they over-complicate something which, let’s be honest, is already plenty complicated.

What is Up With Infant Wearable Monitors – EP 17
33:13
<p>Increasingly parents are using infant wearable monitors. These wearable devices are worn as a leg band, sock, or pinned onto the diaper, and claim to monitor your child’s wellbeing by tracking their breathing, pulse rate, blood oxygen levels, etc. Although they can’t outright claim to prevent SIDS, the marketing material strongly hints at, “Buy this...</p> <p><a class="more-link" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/infant-wearable-monitors-ep-17/">Read More</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/infant-wearable-monitors-ep-17/">What is Up With Infant Wearable Monitors – EP 17</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com">Precious Little Sleep</a>.</p>

Why I Won’t Be Using the Term CIO Anymore – EP 15
30:31
<p>I’ve been using the term CIO or Cry It Out for years. I’ve never liked it. It’s pejorative. “Oh…you’re one of those CIO parents. Whelp I’m not, because, y’know, I’m a good parent.” It’s largely meaningless. And in some parenting circles even the faintest mention risks getting you banned from the group. It also doesn’t...</p> <p><a class="more-link" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/why-i-wont-be-using-the-term-cio-anymore-ep-15/">Read More</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/why-i-wont-be-using-the-term-cio-anymore-ep-15/">Why I Won’t Be Using the Term CIO Anymore – EP 15</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com">Precious Little Sleep</a>.</p>

<p>For parents, going back to work presents the challenge of finding great daycare. Which seems like an enormous hurdle until you start daycare, at which point you realize the real challenge of daycare is getting your child to actually nap there.

The Swing Method and Pick Up Put Down EP 8

<p>There’s been a theme running through our podcasts and no it’s not my propensity to say “um” a lot. It’s that establishing independent sleep is crucial. Not easy, but essential. While there are many methods to foster independent sleep, this episode focuses on two: the swing method and Pick Up Put Down (aka PUPD).

When Baby Wakes Up Too Early EP 7
41:02
<p>Before you had a child, you were probably vaguely aware that kids woke up early. I mean, kindergarten starts early and children must get dressed because nobody is naked on the school bus. Then you had a baby. And you realized that early meant four in the morning. And this? This is too #$%* early....</p> <p><a class="more-link" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/when-baby-wakes-up-too-early/">Read More</a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com/when-baby-wakes-up-too-early/">When Baby Wakes Up Too Early EP 7</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.preciouslittlesleep.com">Precious Little Sleep</a>.</p>

Breaking Down Sleep Schedules and Wake Times EP 5

<p>This podcast is a continuation of the Baby Sleep Power Tools Part 1, focusing specifically on sleep schedules and wake times. Many parents will bemoan the fact that in giving birth, they’ve become full-time Nap Police, a job that is unpaid, unrewarding, and unwanted.

<p>I often do sleep consultations with families who are literally not sleeping. Like at all. Nobody is sleeping and everybody is crying.
