#22 Parenting Lessons: Like Mother, Like Daughter

#22 Parenting Lessons: Like Mother, Like Daughter

November 16, 2020

In today's episode, we talk about parenting. Specifically the parenting relationship between Anabel and Carmen. This episode is a slightly different twist to my usual interview discussions.

 

Today, instead of an "expert" on the show, we have real-life, flesh and blood human beings, who are mother and daughter and they will share their personal story on parenting and the lessons they've learned along the way. 

 

Carmen and I met in 2016 whilst we were both visiting Japan, she was visiting a friend and I was visiting my own and we all happened to be meeting our friends in the same resto-bar in the beach town of Fujisawa. We then made another connection that two other friends of ours worked in the same film company in Lisbon. What are the odds?

 

Since then we stayed in touch. On Facebook, I would see these endearing posts of Carmen's mother, Anabel. I was fascinated by their bond and it was then I invited them to come on the show for a chat. 

 

It was a lovely conversation and it was just nice to talk about the lessons they'd learned along the way as their journeys took them and how their dynamic evolved. 

 

At one point they were even roommates-that were flatmates -and also mother and daughter that shared a common group of friends. Now, that's not something you hear every day.

In this episode, we will share the second part of the conversation with Pearline Foo, Principal Consultant and Chief Babywearing Specialist Fitting Trainer of Baby Slings & Carriers in Singapore.

A pioneer in the babywearing industry, Pearline has been advocating and acting as a Babywearing Specialist Fitter and Consultant since 2007, and has helped with more than 10,000 babywearing fittings!

We pick up from where we left off in the previous episode and started the conversation discussing the types of carriers that aren't the most recommended. You might be surprised by the types that were shared. I have only seen one too many of this style on the streets, and I would only hope that I share this with you so that you are educated on providing the most support for your little one when using a babycarrier.

Baby-carrying or support is such an important and relevant topic for parents; it is not only a simple way for you and your baby to bond but it is also an important way to ensure that babies develop their body and bone structure well.

If you are an experienced babywearer and have some tips for fellow parents, share your tips with us below.

Types of baby carriers that might put a strain on the baby
Are hard baby seats actually suitable for babies?

#18: How Sleep Links To Our Mental & Physical Health

October 19, 2020

A good night’s sleep is incredibly precious to have and important for our health.

It should be as important as eating healthy and exercising.

Unfortunately, there are various reasons that can interfere with our natural sleep patterns.

People are now sleeping less than they did in the past, and sleep quality has decreased as well.

In today’s episode, we are thrilled to have Dr. Eti Ben Simon, a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Human Sleep Science at UC Berkeley in California, directed by Matthew Walker, to share her research and insights on the science of sleep, and how we can maximize the benefits of our rest time to really recover, regenerate and heal from our day’s activities.

In this episode we will cover:
- The stages of sleep
- What happens in each stage that corresponds to the rest of the body
- Teenage Sleep: why do they sleep later- the delayed body clock
- Chronotype: e.g. Night Owl - Why is it important to understand your chronotype
- Can you change your chronotype
- Parkinson's, Cognitive Delay, Cardiovascular disease and how these relate to sleep
