Hey, if you have found this show helpful, please consider sharing it! I would love to reach more women with hope and help for mental wellbeing in motherhood. Today’s episode has to do with baby sleep, which I know can become quite the controversial topic in mom circles. Let it be known that I am not *anti* anything.

It really didn’t work for me and my babies, and I was left feeling like there was something wrong with me,...

This episode is brought to you by Matt Crain - the sole sponsor of this podcast! He pays for it all and takes care of the kids while I'm busy making it, so I thought in honor of Father's Day in the US, it was only fair to let him put in his two cents!  I ask him some never-before-discussed questions like "What did you think was going on with me?" and "Did you think that was the real me, and I had just fooled you up to that point?" We laugh a lot as we think back to those days, and we get serious as we discuss what to say, what not to say, signs to look out for, and what we wish we could...
