Podcast Episode: Sleep

February 28, 2017

Sleep: It’s something we all need, and something we probably don’t get enough of. As parents, we tend not to get enough sleep. If we want to function well and be better parents, however, we need to make this a priority. While it’s important for us to make sure that our little ones get enough sleep, it’s just as important that parents get the sleep that they need. Today we’re going to get some great tips on doing just that.

We’re talking to two sleep experts. The first is Dr. Krishna Sundar, who is the medical director of the Sleep/Wake Center at the University of Utah. The second is Natalie Willes, who is a sleep consultant at and is an expert on baby and toddler sleep.

Episode Highlights:

  • What sleep medicine is and how it pertains to getting better sleep, particularly when there are sleep disorders and issues with how the body responds to sleep.
  • Why sleep is so critical to who we are as human beings and as parents, as well as why sleep is one of the three main pillars of health.
  • The cumulative health effects of sleep deprivation.
  • How screens (smartphones, tablets) impact our sleep.
  • Sundar’s best tips for new parents who need to get more or better sleep.
  • The importance of getting your kids to sleep better so you, as a parent, can sleep better.
  • Natalie’s tips for parents to help them get more sleep.
  • Natalie’s thoughts on naps.
