The Dream Team


As a Certified Infant and Child Sleep Consultant my goal is to give your family the gift of healthy sleep. As the Founder of Dream Baby Sleep™ and a formerly sleep deprived parent who broke every rule in the book, I’ve been where you are.

I coslept with my daughter until she was 11 months old, I held, rocked, bounced, fed to sleep and I have the hindsight to know every situation can be improved. I’ve proudly attended The Family Sleep Institute (FSI), taking a private mentor-ship under the founder of the school as well as receiving a certification from Sleep Baby Sleep as a part of my continuing education.

My name is Alexandra (I go by Xan) and I am a certified baby sleep consultant. I got certified by Sleep, Baby, Sleep consultant training and took a private mentorship under Carolynne Harvey, founder of Dream Baby Sleep™, for 6 months.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Loyola University in Maryland and have planted my roots here in Baltimore.  As a new mom to my precious Serafina, the sleepless nights started to get the best of me!  It was time for us all to get some rest, and at 5 months old my husband and I decided to sleep train our baby through the guidance of Carolynne’s exceptional process-oriented approach. Through our journey, I became fascinated by the value of having a structured sleep training process and I decided I wanted to work with other families along their journey. It became clear how dramatically Serafina’s mood and development was impacted by not just the amount of sleep, but the quality and timing of sleep that she achieved throughout the day and night. My goal is to build a customized plan by evaluating your baby’s temperament, parenting style and family dynamic.  Sleep is taught and I am excited to help families teach their little ones healthy sleep habits to improve the entire family’s quality of life!

Jennifer is a graduate from Saint Thomas Aquinas College in New York with a B.A. in Business Administration/Accounting. She is also an ICF certified Coach through Sleep, Baby, Sleep and has mentored under Carolynne Harvey for 6 months.

A mom to sons Anthony and Luca, Jennifer recognized the importance of self-care and sought to instill healthy sleep habits in her children so that she could ensure her own rest and be at her best as a parent, wife and friend. Initially, sleep was not without its challenges.  Jennifer knows how it feels to be sleep deprived, and can empathize with others who are in desperate need of some rest.  This experience in the trenches allows her to better assist families; having (sleep)walked in their shoes, she knows how essential it is to have a healthy sleep routine. In desperate need of rest, Jennifer with the help of founder Carolynne Harvey educated herself on healthy sleep habits and immediately initiated changes in her home.

Jennifer lives in North Haledon,NJ with her two sons and her husband, Anthony

jessica_headshotDR. JESSICA ESCOTT

Jessica Escott is a clinical psychologist on the upper eastside specializing in women’s mental health as they parent young children. She herself has two young children at home. She understands the unique needs of mothers as this time marks a change in their identity, draws up past issues, and a difficulty in balancing other external roles and relationships.

A mother’s love for her child often brings her to therapy so that she can be the best of her self for her child. Jessica uses a supportive and integrative approach in treatment derived from evidenced based relational and cognitive behavioral therapies that is tailored to each individual in her care.

Jessica received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Yeshiva University- Ferkauf Graduate school of Psychology and her Masters in psychology from The New School for Social Research. She has an extensive background on mother-child attachment throughout the lifespan, working in university research labs (The New School for Social Research and the University of Wisconsin-Madison) and conducting attachment based group therapy and individualized mother/infant attachment interventions.

Sleeping Tips

Depends on the method we decide on based on your parenting style, family dynamic and temperament of the baby (I’m not afraid to say it, “I can name that tune in 2 weeks!”) You’ll see great progress in 2 weeks and with a 4 week commitment your sleep woes will be in the past
Three naps…
Nap 1 at 8:30 AM
Nap 2 at 12:30 PM
Nap 3 at 3:00 PM

Nap 1 and 2 need to be during these times to capture the benefits of natural circadian rhythms.
Sleep is a moving target we adjust and adapt based on the quality of the previous sleep cycle.

Yes, the rule is you can put it in once but we don’t replace it if it’s spit out or tossed out
Call, email or text right now, we can fix it and your life will change (PS – 8 out of 10 clients say the baby “hates” the crib, you’re not alone)

Co-Sleeping until 8 Months old, Never Napped or Slept in his Crib
Dream Baby Sleep™ does not follow a one size fits all sleep approach and she creates an alliance with the families she works with. I never felt that I was pressured to do things I was not comfortable with and really felt as though she respected my thoughts along the way. I can’t even describe how calming it is to get some answers and guidance to help our whole family sleep.

If you need a gentle process this is it!
Our baby girl slept through the night on our first night. She gave us the confidence we needed to set up a proper sleep schedule for our daughter that worked for all of us. She’s supportive and encourages parents through the two weeks spent working together. If there is ever a gentle sleep training process, this is it. I never felt as if I wasn’t doing something my baby needed and instead, I helped her find real sleep! My husband and I would recommend Dream Baby Sleep™ to anyone looking to help babies sleep better.

My baby was waking up 5-6x per night
My 8 month old was waking up 5-6x during the night. He would only fall asleep if I was rocking him and once he was down in the crib he would wake up shortly after screaming for either me or my husband. He was not napping during the day on a consistent basis and was falling asleep around 9:30pm. I contacted Dream Baby Sleep™ and within 3 days my son was taking regular naps in his crib and was sleeping through the night. After a one hour phone conversation, she really understood our lifestyle and what my son needed to establish the healthy and happy sleep he needs.

My Son hated sleep and was up every 2 hrs
Sleeping was never my sons thing, he hated it. At 7 months old he was still waking every 2 hours throughout the night and I finally hit my breaking point. Dream Baby Sleep™ came to the rescue. There are many different “sleep training” methods and coaches out there, but what I liked most was her extensive training in multiple sleep methods. She creates a customized sleep plan for each client based on your lifestyle, goals, etc. This is definitely not a cookie cutter approach! Within 5 days of sticking to the plan she created, my son was only waking 1 time per night!! He was putting himself to sleep within minutes!
