060: Three Facts about Infant Sleep You MUST Know // Dr. Katie Penry

3 Facts You MUST Know about Infant Sleep

It’s SLEEP WEEK here at 3 in 30!  This week I will be bringing you TWO episodes from two different sleep experts, each focusing on a different aspect of how to get your little ones to sleep well. (Because I don’t know about you, but when I’m exhausted because my littles won’t sleep, everyone in the family suffers!)

Today on the show we have a guest who is a fan favorite, Dr. Katie Penry, a specialist in maternal and infant mental health. She and I discuss newborn sleep and how it can impact the mental health of a mom.  Dr. Penry is such an encourager and even protector of mothers–and this episode will give you permission to make decisions about your family’s sleep that will benefit both your baby AND you.

Come back on Thursday for a follow-up episode from a sleep consultant who will teach us how to avoid bedtime battles with our toddlers and preschoolers (and even elementary schoolers!).

This is going to be a fun and different week at 3 in 30.  Don’t miss it!

How to Take Control of your Motherhood Story // Cate Johnson

How to Take Control of your Motherhood

“At any given point, you can say, ‘This is not how the story is going to end.'”

Cate Johnson was a mother of two young children with a big, beautiful home in the country.  From the outside, it looked like she was “living the dream,” but inside, she felt like she was drowning.

She craved peace and connection with her children–but instead she felt only chaos and overwhelm. She spent hours cleaning her big home while her kids watched television. She felt heartbroken that she was not the mother that she had always wanted to be.

After hitting a breaking point, she decided to take control of her motherhood story. She took a few drastic actions–such as deciding with her husband to sell their home in the country and move into a small apartment in the city–but most of her shifts were small. But they altered her motherhood story and the way she felt about motherhood.

Cate has a message of hope for all of us: We can live true to our values as mothers and take control of our motherhood stories.  Listen in to learn how!
