Episode 63 Content and Overview
The first year of your baby’s life goes by so fast and so much of your focus is on sleeping, breastfeeding, eating, and just adjusting to your new role as a parent who is responsible for another human. The transition from baby to toddler happens so quickly and suddenly you have a child who is walking and talking and your focus goes from not just making sure they are well taken care of and healthy, but also, how do you raise them to be smart, respectful, creative, confident, and happy individuals? I recently came across a podcast that is going to help you in your parenting journey. From the first episode I listened to I knew that I had to get in touch with the host and get her on the Pregnancy Podcast.
Jen Lumanlan is mom to her two-year old daughter Carys, is working on her Masters in psychology with a focus on child development, and she is the host of the Your Parenting Mojo podcast. Jen has outstanding research skills and each episode of her podcast is filled with evidence based information you can use on your parenting journey.
