Child Sleep Consultant

Wondering if it’s time to hire a sleep consultant? If you have been looking at sleep information on the internet, in books, or in speaking to others, you know that there is a lot of conflicting advice out there on how to sleep. We at Good Night Sleep Site believe that a good sleep consultant helps families sift through information about the biology of sleep and sleep hygiene to find what will work best for them and their family. What could be better when you are sleep deprived and confused than to have your own personal sleep educator walk you through the entire process?

Ever wonder if your baby or child will ever sleep through the night? Or get out of your bed? Or nap longer than 30 minutes? Do you want your baby to sleep later than 4am? Want to avoid tantrums at bedtime? I can help!

In addition to 1:1 private consultations, I offer free weekly sleep clinics in the community. Please contact me for more information.more info
