EP112 Interview With Julia Fensom, Sleep Consultant And Author

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!   Enjoy!  

Cheers P.
