My first baby was a dream, such a magical sleeper out of the gate. I did some basic healthy sleep habits from the beginning and by 5 months old she was sleeping through the night and a napping on a schedule. My second baby was an entirely different story, it literally flipped my life upside down. It felt like a disaster and even with my nursing education I could not figure sleep out. The baby was diagnosed with reflux at 8 weeks old. I could barely get her to sleep more than 2 hours straight at night, I was utterly exhausted.
Once we had her reflux under control, we attempted to sleep train her but nothing worked, sleep did not come easily for her and I was at my wits end. My mood was terrible, my patience was non-existent, and my toddler and husband were getting the brunt of it. I definitely wasn’t the best mom I knew I could be. After using every sleep crutch under the sun in a desperate attempt to get more sleep, we finally hired a sleep consultant and it was life changing.
I am a certified sleep consultant through Sleep Baby Sleep™ completing 120 hours, and have taken a one on one mentorship with Founder, author and sleep expert Carolynne J. Harvey. I attended Norquest College in Edmonton, Canada and received my diploma as a Licensed Practical Nurse.
My goal is to help parents improve sleep in their homes and give the tools and confidence for sustainable, long term success.
