The day your baby was born, your sleep changed forever, but unfortunately not for the better.

Feeling sleep deprived is expected when you have a newborn, but for many parents, this sleep deprivation becomes chronic. We joke about how tired we are, but a lack of sleep can actually harm your physical health and impact significantly how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

Parenthood and sleep can be a tough combination.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Sometimes it’s just a small change that can make a huge difference.

As a pediatric sleep consultant I help parents navigate the unknown territory when it comes to newborn, infant and toddler’s sleep. I provide support and guidance to help families sleeping well, so that they can live their life to the fullest!

I truly believe that sleep is one of the best gifts we can give our children (and ourselves!).

Give your baby and yourself the gift of SLEEP…

It’s important. It’s necessary. It’s possible. I promise!

0-4 months

During the first euphoric exhausting weeks and months it’s all about feeding and bonding with your newborn at all hours of the day and night. I am here to support you in several ways to help your little one develop healthy sleep habits, which are vital for the overall development of your little bundle of joy.

4-12 months

It’s time to make yourself a priority again, as a person, not only as a parent. Maybe you are also transitioning back to work, balancing the needs of your child with a lack of sleep. I am here to support you by giving your baby opportunities to learn to fall asleep and stay asleep, so that you and your family can take the right steps to recharge.

1-6 years

During these early years you can be constantly on call during sleep time; fetching one last drink of water or soothing your little one deep into the night. I am here to give you guidance and support to help your child sleep independently and through the night, which will benefit everyone in the house.
