  2. Hi Shawn
    Thank you so much for all your information you have provided to the public! I just finished listening to your podcast with Arianna about sleep and loved it. It made me think about what you would recommend for new parents with babies? How would these new families combate the sleep deprivation that comes when having a newborn? These poor moms and dads have such a demand on them to keep up with life and their other family members all while missing tons of sleep? Thank you for your input=)

  3. What about people working different hours like nurses,emergency workers,police,people working night shift and mothers with babies.

    1. Miro, great question. I addressed this in-depth in Sleep Smarter in Chapter 6. Do you have a copy yet? Bottomline, with the World Health Organization and other major entities confirming that overnight work is a class 2A or stronger carcinogen, there has to be something done about this. Shift work is an entirely different story from mother’s with babies. I talk about that in a new episode of my other show, The Good Dad Project.
