Erin Eileen Leigh is a writer and the author of Navigating the Newborn Months and Beyond: A Mother’s Guide to Routine, Sleep, Fussiness and Self-Care. Erin’s idea to write Navigating the Newborn Months and Beyond began forming over four years ago. After her fourth child transitioned to the toddler phase, she found herself bursting with ideas and information about babies and a desire to capture her thoughts and share them with other moms. In 2020, a year that involved frustration, sadness, and isolation due to a worldwide pandemic, Erin found her own joy and purpose in creating Navigating the Newborn Months and Beyond. Writing it has been an incredible personal journey for which she is grateful every day.
Erin is the proud mother of four beautiful children, three sons and one daughter, and is married to her college sweetheart. She was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Erin attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee for her undergraduate education, where she competed in Division 1 cross country and track and field for four years. Erin attended Loyola University Chicago School of Law where she received her J.D. Erin enjoys swimming, running, hiking, playing the piano, and spending time outdoors with her children. She keeps her sanity by reading, writing, and enjoying the beauty of Northern California as much as possible.
