How to get your TODDLER to sleep through the night in his/her bed, go to bed effortlessly and wake up NOT at the butt crack of dawn! That's what this episode should be titled.  You always hear about infant sleep training, how to get your baby to sleep through the night, but no one ever talks about toddler sleep.  The truth is toddler sleep is a whole different animal.  Your baby could be an amazing sleeper and then bam he/she hits 2 years old or so and all of the sudden sleep is a battle.  I've been there, which is why I'm so excited to bring this episode to you! Ellanee Wilson, a Certified Pediatric Sleep Coach, and mom of 2 little girls (soon to be 3), is sharing all of her best tips and tricks on getting your toddler to sleep with us, and you don't want to miss it!

The Hatch

Ellanee Wilson is a certified pediatric sleep coach and mom of 2 (soon to be 3) girls. She studied English and psychology in college at UC Santa Cruz and was a high school English teacher for 8 years before totally switching careers to focus on helping moms with their childrens’ sleep. Although she was self-studied in the area of pediatric sleep since her first daughter was born in 2015, she was officially certified (through the International Parenting and Health Institute’s sleep program) as a consultant in 2019 and started her pediatric sleep coaching business, Sleep Coach Mom, in September 2019. Pre-pandemic, she decided to leave teaching before the 2020 school year and focus solely on helping families sleep. She finds giving moms the support she wished she had through her first child’s sleep issues is just as rewarding (if not more) than being in the classroom.

She has a free Facebook group, Sleep Coach Mom - Team Sleep, for moms to ask questions about their childrens’ sleep, and she gives infant and toddler tips regularly and has a Sleep Q&A every Thursday on her Instagram, @sleep_coach_mom. Her website (for one-on-one coaching) is sleepcoachmom.com, or you can email her directly at ellanee@sleepcoachmom.com

67 \\ 2021 Word & Song of the Year + How to Choose Yours

67 \\ 2021 Word & Song of the Year + How to Choose Yours

January 6, 2021

What's your word of the year? Have you ever chosen a song of the year? For many years I didn't see what all the hype was about when it came to these things. I would choose a word of the year and inevitably forget it a month later.  Sound familiar?  But in 2020 I did something different, I wrote my words of the year everywhere and they truly became my theme for the year in such an incredible way.  In this episode, I reflect back on my words of the year for 2020, share my word and song of the year for 2021 with you, and walk you through the process of choosing YOUR word and song of the year plus bonus, how you can use them to guide your year!

XOXO, Lauren

Reflection is where we see the lessons!  Before we head into a new year, it's important to look back on the previous year, take stock of everything that happened, express gratitude for the good, acknowledge the bad and look for the lessons in it all. That's where growth comes from. Bust out your journal and get ready to find some quiet time over the next couple of days for 2 fun reflection activities I walk you through!  Plus a recap on everything 2020 brought for me in hopes that it will inspire you to go after your dreams in 2021!

61 \\ The 3 MAJOR THINGS Holding You Back From Achieving Your Goals Part 2: Fear & Lack

December 10, 2020

When it comes to creating the life you desire and achieving the goals, success and vision you set for yourself, the second thing holding you back is fear and a lack mentality! Fear is simply an emotion, created by our thoughts. It's unique to each one of us. Lack is something we focus on as humans without being conscious of it.  Fear breeds more fear. Lack breeds more lack. Join me as I take a deeper dive into these concepts and how to flip them to create massive transformation!

December 3, 2020

"Seeing isn't believing.  Believing is seeing!" The first in a series of 3 episodes on what is holding you back, as you begin to set goals for 2021! When it comes to creating the life you desire and achieving the goals, success and vision you set for yourself, the first thing holding you back is looking for the proof that it's possible first! As adults we say, when I see the proof then I'll start to believe and change my behavior, but that is backwards. In order to see the proof, you have to believe and change your behavior first.  Join me as I take a deeper dive into this concept!
