Certified Sleep Consultant
Hi - .
When I became pregnant with my first son in 2018, I never felt unprepared or nervous for the day he’d come into the world. I had several friends already with children who shared their daily routines and what to expect as a new parent. I especially remember a conversation with my best friend after she had her daughter 6 months before I was due. She explained her sweet little newborn would feed every 2 hours and then would be placed in her swing where she’d instantly fall asleep and wake again after another 2 hours to repeat the process. I thought, “Oh, wow, that’s so simple. I am totally ready for that.” My son, Anthony, must have heard this conversation and decided to have his own ideas once born!
I would get up the next morning determined to have a better night. It never came. My child wanted to be in his mama’s arms 24/7, and I was becoming a prisoner to the couch. If he wasn’t sleeping, he was crying so, I would give in and nurse him, rock him, and do whatever it took to get him to fall asleep on me, and then there on the couch, I would stay. All-day long.
The nights were worse. My husband and I felt forced to take shifts each night, where we’d be up every hour with a crying baby. We were never able to go to bed together, let alone have any down time together. Not being together at night was extremely hard for me as I felt so incredibly lonely during the days and still could not have much adult interaction at night.
My mental health started to suffer. I felt stressed, overwhelmed, inexplicably exhausted, and knew something needed to change.
When Anthony was 3.5 months old, I already knew what we needed was professional help in sleep training our son. I found Rocky Mountain Sleeping Baby right away and scheduled my call at that moment.
With their help, I received step-by-step guidance on how to get Anthony to sleep independently and consistently. Our household was changed for the better. Anthony became a vibrant and happy baby, and my husband and I were given back the alone time we so needed at the end of a long day.
After having my second son 20 months later, I applied the same rules of sleep with him and found a much smoother and rested transition – What a relief!
Sleep is so vital to our mind, body and souls, and I, first-hand, know the impacts of poor sleep coursing through the entire household. Sleep is a science, and any child can achieve great sleep with the right skills and tools. I would love nothing more than to join you and your family to getting the rest everyone needs and deserves.
On this journey, together, we will:
- Help you understand the fundamentals towards rested sleep
- Build a step by step plan for your child’s sleep
- Teach your child independent sleep skills for life
- Give you back some freedom and the rest you deserve as a parent!
I look forward to hearing your story and inspiring your journey!
