Today on Mom Talk we are joined by Teddy Blue. We connected on Instagram and I was amazed at her kindness, openness, and vulnerability. I decided that she had to come on the show. We discuss a ton of topics, but the main one that stuck out as an overarching theme was female empowerment.
I've really had to shift my mindset towards social media platforms, specifically Instagram, Instagram. And I have always had, I guess you could say, a love-hate relationship. I didn't want to be that person. You know, that person who is always posting about themselves and promoting their business, showing up, showing off everything to everyone in their life. But the reality is, is I am a businesswoman. And if I want to reach people, I need to meet them where they're at. How I approach social media must be in alignment with my values.

Today on Mom Talk I wanted to share my sleep training experience with Luna. At 8 months luna was still waking up on average between every two to three hours at night. I was becoming a grumpy, exhausted human zombie. Just I don't even know how I was getting through my day and doing all that I needed to do and surviving. I was constantly getting grumpy with Lucas and just overall feeling like I was worn so thin. I would look over at Lucas while he was sleeping next to me while I was sitting there feeding Luna and I just wanted to punch him in the face because I was so jealous that he was pretty much sleeping through the night and I was waking up every two hours and it was just exhausting. So how did I get her to sleep through the night in just three days? Listen in to find out!

Join me as I take a trip down memory lane. It has been almost 9 months since the birth of my daughter Luna, so I wanted to share that experience with you.

Before I had Luna so many parents told me the first 6 weeks were the hardest. After that, it gets easier. I totally agree those first 6 weeks are a huge, difficult transition, but the reality is the first 6 months for me were the hardest. This initial period of transition is extremely difficult. As a new mother, the one thing I want other mom's to know is that it isn't going to be smooth sailing after the first 6 weeks. Keep hope during the exhausting and difficult moments and know that 6 months is a moment of transition into something a little easier.
Mom talk is a podcast where we have authentic conversations with moms just like you and me. Lets connect, inspire, and empower one another.
This episode is an introduction to Mom Talk. Why I decided to make this podcast, and what my vision is for the evolution over the upcoming years.
