Is sleep training "always wrong"? Kaitlin Klimmer on grey areas and maternal mental health
Sleep like a baby?
by Hannah @ Little Nest
7M ago
A controversial question this week! There will be people who say that cry-it-out is always wrong/cruel/avoidable. And others that believe it is the best thing ever. But what about the space in between these two polarised stances? Kaitlin Klimmer and I are both sleep specialists who offer alternatives to sleep training, but where do we stand on the moral debate around infant sleep and controlled crying? We go deep into temperament, cultural expectations/norms, maternal mental health and setting boundaries whilst protecting attunement.Austria-based, Canadian sleep specialist and mother of two, K ..read more

Low sleep needs with Paula Morales McDowell
Sleep like a baby?
by Hannah @ Little Nest
8M ago
Is your baby sleeping less than their peers? Are they cat-nappers with late bedtimes but... actually thriving? You might be surprised to learn that this is actually A Thing! The idea that all babies need long naps and 12hrs overnight is totally outdated and not backed by science. But if you have a low sleep needs kid, you might be struggling to find more information about this.I spoke to fellow sleep consultant Paula Morales McDowell about how she discovered her own son had low sleep needs and how they made this work for their family. Are babies harmed by having less sleep? Will they develop ..read more

Sex after having kids - with Catherine Topham Sly
Sleep like a baby?
by Hannah @ Little Nest
8M ago
My guest today is the relationship therapist and coach, Catherine Topham Sly who you may know from her Instagram account Insight and Connection. She is the expert in happy relationships after kids – and this is a subject that I have been desperate to cover for so long.In my opinion, how our relationships and partnerships change after becoming parents is still not spoken about widely enough. Especially in the lead up to birth itself. So when our relationship is adapting to this new stage of life it can come as a real shock when things aren’t as harmonious and blissfully loved-up as they seem to ..read more

Sleep training, shaming and seeing through the baby BS: with Rachael from HeySleepyBaby
Sleep like a baby?
by Hannah @ Little Nest
1y ago
We really don't hold back in this week's episode! Is it ok to live sleep train a 4 month old baby on Instagram? Do paediatricians have the right to tell new parents they should leave their baby to cry it out? Are we shaming other mothers by saying controlled crying isn't for us? Rachael runs HeySleepyBaby - the largest biologically-normal infant sleep account on Instagram - and as a result, she receives a lot of DMs from people who think differently to her. So I knew she'd be the perfect person to dissect the baby sleep industry with. These are really important conversations, especiall ..read more
