    The Potty Ladies
     with Liz Van Dorn and Maura Weaver
     
    Liz Van Dorn & Maura Weaver (AKA The Potty Ladies) are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) who practice Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Between the 2 of them, they have 4 kids under the age of 5 (and another on the way!). Through years of experience in the field of ABA and tackling potty training in-person with families, they saw a need for evidence-based information and family support in the area of potty training more broadly (as well as further dissemination of the science of ABA). Using their passion for and expertise about potty training, they created The Potty Ladies with the hope of reaching families not just in their area- but anywhere! They both reside in Huntsville, AL and co-own an ABA company called Footsteps of Change, Inc. where they work with local school districts & families to provide parent training, in-home therapy, and school consultation services.

The best podcast for baby/kid sleep!

Sam is the most informative, passionate, supportive and nicest person there is when it comes to sleep! We have used Sam since our baby was 10 weeks old (now 12 months) and she’s slept 12 hours straight through the night thanks to her!!!! Can’t rave enough about this podcast series. We look forward to every episode and listen to them over and over again. Thanks for everything. We appreciate you more than you’ll ever know!

Such a helpful and positive podcast!

I don’t always have time to listen to podcasts but every time I have a chance, I listen to Happy Days, Rested Nights! Samantha is full of information and I love implementing it all with my 5yo, 4yo and 6 month old.

Wonderful resource

Great for parents to learn about promoting good sleep and behavior. My transition to parenthood has been easier and more rested because of this podcast!
