Vermont: Spitting Lyon with Chrissy Lawler

Vermont: Spitting Lyon with Chrissy Lawler

The Peaceful Sleeper, Chrissy Lawler, joins Sharon to hear the story of Matthew Lyon, one of Vermont’s most eclectic historical figures. Lyon, a “redemptioner” from Dublin, made a name for himself as a fierce Democratic-Republican when he got into not one–but two–scuffles with a congress member of the opposing party… during an active House session. His story gets more bizarre from there, as he became the only person to be elected to Congress while in jail. Follow along as Sharon tells his larger-than-life tale of public service during some of the U.S.’s earliest years as a new nation.

Chrissy Lawler is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, lover of sleep, and baby sleep consultant. She lives in Las Vegas with her wonderful husband and four beautiful daughters, who are, thankfully, amazing sleepers. They weren’t born that way. Your babies can be amazing sleepers too!

She founded The Peaceful Sleeper for two main reasons: She recognizes how critically important sleep is in all aspects of life, and believes that many parents are under-informed or feel unnecessary guilt when it comes to optimizing sleep for their babies. She wants to help! Lawler fundamentally believes there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so her method is grounded in science, attachment research, and psychology, and centers on finding a customizable approach that works for you and your baby.

Chrissy Lawler’s goal is to take the stress out of baby sleep and get everyone in the family a good night’s rest. She is here to help you enjoy motherhood–not just endure it
