podcast launch precious little sleep

We’re podcasting people!!! (*Drops Mic*)

(*Picks mic back up because it’s needed for podcasting*)

Welcome to the Precious Little Sleep Parenting Podcast! We’re podcasting because it’s 2016 and all the cool kids are doing it. And also because it’s not always easy to read when you’ve got your hands full with a baby or two. So now you can choose to read or listen, or both. Because podcasting content won’t entirely overlap with the blog.

What will we be podcasting about? Lots of fun stuff including:

  • Sleep
  • Parenting
  • Interviews with best-selling authors
  • Breaking down research
  • Anything else we find interesting and/or funny

You’ll notice I keep using the word we. No, this isn’t the royal we but an acknowledgement that the podcast is a collaborative effort. I’ve asked some of the most smart and funny women I know to join me. We represent a range of cultures, continents, religions, and parenting philosophies. Our goal is to share different approaches and experiences in a conversational way while also staying true to our roots and evidence-based philosophy. You can read up on the Parenting Podcast crew here.

Check Out the Inaugural Podcast

This is a fun first episode. You’ll learn about:

  • Who we are
  • A sneak peak into our unique adventures with kids and sleep
  • What topics will be covered in the coming months
  • Our individual parenting philosophies, in haiku format

Actually the haikus are my favorite. Because everything is better in haiku format. Like Elisabeth’s…

Oh I can’t wait for you to grow up
And then I think
No I’m not ready

Take a Listen!

  1. YESSSSSSSSS! I love podcasts, and I love PLS, and this is a match made in heaven!

    • we are so happy to meet your needs! before you can listen in iTunes or Google, you can just hit the “play” button on that audio bar in the post above — we look forward to your feedback!

  2. The iTunes link doesn’t seem to work and I can’t find it in iTunes. What is the actual title of the podcast?

    • Lydia I JUST LAUNCHED it. You have to have a podcast feed to submit to iTunes, Google, etc. and then it takes ~24 hours to get approved. So I love your enthusiasm and willingness to subscribe (YAAAS!) but unfortunately it’s going to take the tech about a day to catch up 😛

      Please try back again soon!!!

  3. Hooray! I love podcasts. Toddler sleep solutions, please. How to deal with moving to a new room, bigger bed, vacations (coming home, travel cots), negotiating toddler and baby bedtimes, kids sharing rooms … This could be a whole series 😉

    • Were you looking at our show planning document? That’s totally the idea! It took us AGES to get the sound quality decent-ish (we’re recording across multiple continents) but if you don’t mind a bit of home-grown flair in sound, we’ll definitely be tackling all sorts of stuff along the lines of what you suggested!

  4. Love it!!! I’m so excited! I’d love more about naps. How often, how long, how many, how old…

  5. So excited by these podcasts. Loved reading your blog with my first. I tell my patient’s that I learnt more about “normal” children from being a parent than from medical school. Your website is amongst my “trusted” websites that I point parents towards for good advice. Keep up the great work!

  6. I love your site and am soo excited about the podcasts! I would be interested to hear what you gals have to say about colic/high needs/ fussy babies with regard to sleep and/or general survival (for mom and dad). Just a suggestion for a future cast 😉 Keep up the great work! I’ll be listening!
