EP112 Interview With Julia Fensom, Sleep Consultant And Author

October 6, 2021
I knew this would be an entertaining podcast and so it proved to be: Julia Fensom, author of With Sleep I Can Do Anything: The First Year - A Manual is always funny, energetic and full of ideas.  So this interview was always going to be interesting - and long!  When the two of us get together it is always a very funny hour or two, laughing about life, having families and running a small business.
While, admittedly, we do talk a bit about babies (and photographing them), mostly the interview is about life, business and what it takes to work well with clients (some of whom are only a few weeks old!)
As usual, I asked Julia to nominate a book - or maybe two - that could be added to the ever-expanding library of interesting reads:
Cribsheet By Emily Oster
A Data-Driven Guide to Better, More Relaxed Parenting, from Birth to Preschool
Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker
Both these links will take you to the Amazon book store but I am sure they are available elsewhere!
Also, it would be remiss if I didn't include Julia's own book:
With sleep, I can do anything: The first year - A manual
So with 90 minutes of listening time, this might not fit within your regular commute but, hopefully, it'll be interesting enough to pick back up on the way home!
