The Newborn Sleep Podcast EP 2

taking the mystery out of newborn sleep

In this episode we discuss newborn sleep, although why would be because let’s be honest here, newborn babies don’t sleep. At least not in the way you might hope.

Newborn Babies are Mysterious

When my first was born I was given the advice, “Follow his lead! He’ll let you know what he needs!” Really? Because he was generally fussy and I could never tell if he was hungry, tired, bored, gassy, or some combination therein. Truthfully the whole thing was baffling and I spent my first few months as a new Mom exhausted and confused.

If you’ve ever felt this way or are currently feeling this way, join us for our Newborn Sleep Podcast where we demystify newborn sleep by breaking down:

  • What exactly is normal for newborn babies?
  • Do you have a loaf of bread baby?
  • What is colic and when does this hellishness come to an end?
  • What is this reverse-cycling you keep hearing about?
  • Why is newborn sleep so challenging?
  • What are your key strategies for navigating the the newborn phase?
  • Plus pro tips from experienced Moms!
  • Take a Listen!

    Let us know what you think and leave us a comment below! If you have a specific question or issue you would like us to tackle in a future podcast episode, feel free to drop it in a comment or email us at podcast@preciouslittlesleep.com.

    Cheers and tally ho!

    1. wow, this all resonates! at the very end you talk about self-care. I remember always being thirsty and feeling too rushed to drink, so a similar solution was leaving glasses of water everywhere.
      This is such a terrific and reassuring podcast to here when you have a newborn.

      • Guys! Guys! Check it out – our first positive review!

        Thank you SO much for your kind words! And I love that you find it reassuring. It’s a collaborative effort and our goals were:
        – brief (generally <30 minutes)
        - conversational (everybody brings great thoughts to the table)
        - reassuring (parents are so stressed!)

        Really appreciate you checking it out 🙂

    2. When I click on the links above on my iPhone they don’t work, and a search in the iPhone podcasts app doesn’t bring it up. Do you know if it’s possible to listen from my phone, or do I need to use a desktop?

    3. LOVED the podcast. Wish I had heard this before having my son. Can’t wait for future podcasts!!

    4. Great podcast! I have a 9 week old and needed this today.

    5. This was such a great podcast! Please do many many more! Super helpful, my baby is 3 weeks old and I’ve been struggling for the past 2 weeks specifically with sleep and fussiness. This was such great information and helped so much because I realized that my baby was over tired and since then it’s been a lot better. And the tips at the end were amazing. Thank you so much!

      Thank you so much for this! My son is 3 weeks old and I have been struggling with the newborn phase. Just hearing that it is ok and what we’re going through is normal is so helpful. I was starting to question my ability and so needed to hear this.

    7. I am a new mother with a 2 week old at home. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to listen to this. The weight of *everything* I have been stressing over since the day I got home is now lifted! Officially subscribed 🙂
