Ask The Expert: Children's Sleep Tips

There are a lot of amazingly wonderful things about being a parent and there are a lot of things that are challenging and darn-right difficult… your baby’s sleep should not be one of them.

I am a Sleep Sense certified children’s Sleep Consultant at Happy Baby Sleep Consulting and I just want you to know that you can fix your exhaustion because your babe isn’t sleeping well. I work with families, one-on-one, who are experiencing some pretty significant sleep deprivation and families struggling with sleep holds a special place in my heart. The sleepless nights and zombie-like expressions during the day are REAL. However, it is absolutely possible to make things less stressful. Getting more, deep, restful sleep for you and your baby will mean baby is better able to cope with change/transitions throughout the day and you can also get a moment to recharge. I can help take you from your head spinning about sleep (or lack thereof), to you and baby being more rested, more alert, and everyone sleeping well for longer periods of time.

For me, my sleep challenges all started with my oldest son, Dylan. My rock bottom was holding him at 3am, nodding off in the rocking chair for HOURS, having had multiple night wakings before that (and also done this exhausting nighttime ritual for MONTHS already!) and I had to be up for work in a few hours. My husband and I both realized that we couldn’t maintain like this any more; it just wasn’t sustainable. In my path to better sleep, I found many families going through similar struggles. But each sleep situation, each kiddo and each family is different and there’s beauty in those differences.

I’ve helped hundreds of families get some much-needed sleep and I’m confident I can help you too. You have a sleep resource in me... always! If you need assistance, or just have a sleep-related question, please reach out. I’m here if you need me!

Thank you for being you!!!
