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 Support a Friend during the Holidays who has Lost a Loved One // Rachel Gainer

How to Support a Friend who has Lost a Child

The holiday season is a beautiful and magical time for most of us–but it can also be a time of loneliness and heartache for those who have lost loved ones.

This episode is a reminder of the little things we can do to reach out to those who are grieving during this time of year.

Rachel Gainer, a mother of five including an angel baby, shares her experience of losing her 2-month-old daughter, Daphne. She talks about the meaningful ways that family and friends supported her during that enormous loss and in the years since.

Though this topic may seem a bit heavy, the episode is full of hope, love, and goodness, and it is sure to give you great ideas if you’ve ever wondered just what to do for someone who is hurting.

Don’t forget the invitation at the end of this episode: Please reach out this week to someone in your own life who could use some extra support and love as the holidays approach.

054: What If I’m Jealous? // Monica Packer of About Progress

Have you ever been a little bit jealous, even of a good friend? I’m guessing the answer is YES because most of us face jealousy to varying degrees and in various forms throughout our lives.

In this episode, I talk openly with my dear friend and podcasting colleague, Monica Packer of About Progress, about how we have been jealous of each other at times–and what we’ve decided to *do* with that emotion.

Monica shares three “dive deep” questions to ask yourself if you recognize that you’re feeling jealous and if you want to use that feeling to become a better person and friend.  (Yes, it’s possible!)

Don’t miss this honest, heartfelt episode, and let us know what it makes you think about in your own life!
