Episode 43: The Season Finale



It’s our final episode in 2017 (sob!) and Lesley has a big announcement to make (more sobs!). This week we’re answering YOUR questions. You’ll hear us chat about our favorite mom hacks, our favorite beauty products, how we talk to our kids about faith, and how we deal with rough toddler transitions. We also tackle mom guilt, sleep training, and picky eating. Oh, and April gets a serious case of the giggles when Ashlee confesses how many times she’s joined and quit the gym. This episode is extra long, and we hope it tides you over until we return next year!

Have a baby who isn’t sleeping? It’s totally normal. BUT—sometimes it’s nice to have a realistic plan (and a coach!) for getting your kids to sleep. Lesley loves The Baby Sleep Site and would also highly recommend Sleep Shop.
