As a mom of two littles, I've been there.
I am the mom of two littles who are on the go nearly every waking moment of their days. Does that sound familiar? With my firstborn, I experienced the typical new mom uncertainties of how to get my little to sleep. I did the elaborate rocking and bouncing dances, listening to soft music, had perfectly warmed milk in his favorite bottle, and his favorite lovey. It was comical, crazy, and completely ineffective!
I had to do something different. I did my research, tried some new things, and figured out how to get my little to sleep on his own in his own bed... Then I found out what life was like with a well-rested child. It’s amazing! I had kid-free evenings with my husband again, and we were able to enjoy life with our little one while feeling well-rested and restored ourselves.
When my second little was born, I was ready. It was much easier because I knew how to teach my child to fall asleep on her own without the elaborate song and dance routine; she slept much better and mastered this earlier than my firstborn. This is what life should be like with children!
I have worked in the field of education for more than 10 years working with children of all ages, from newborn up through high school. As a certified baby and toddler sleep consultant, I also have worked with families solve their sleep issues for the past 6 years, so I have a wide range of experiences working with families and their unique needs.
In the past year, I have completed my education to become a certified adult sleep coach, and am now working with adults who are experiencing issues with their sleep and are ready to sleep well once again.
I am also proficient in American Sign Language, so I am able to serve families who primarily communicate using ASL and the relay service.
I discovered what worked for us, and now I want to help you figure out what works for you!
