It’s that time of year again! The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and nature is begging to be explored! Before having children my husband and I loved to go camping in the summer and explore the outdoors. After our kids came along, we found it a little more challenging to find a good rhythm while camping with them. We always loved to tent camp, but it was difficult for us to ...

So your baby has been sleeping well for months now and is happy, well rested with a very predictable schedule. All of a sudden your champion sleeper is now protesting at bedtime, waking up multiple times a night, and/or fighting those precious naps. A slew of questions might be circling your brain: What is happening? What do I do? Is this the end of good sleep for my baby…and m ...

It’s that time of year again when the sun starts to come up a little earlier each morning, and although I love waking up to a sunlit room, it also means my kiddos are waking up as soon as that light peers through their curtains. Even though these early sunrises take a little getting used to, it is nothing compared to the early mornings I used have with one of my babies.  Sound ...

During the past crazy week, I’ve been thinking a lot about this quote from Mr. Rogers: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” So as we all try to navigate these scary times together, I started thinking about how we could be helpers. And since our expertise is ar ...

When you are sleep deprived and in a moment of desperation, all the sleep products out there could be very tempting. You’re exhausted, your baby won’t sleep, and you are at your wits end! I get it! I have been there! However, don’t let the stress of no sleep cause you to make unsafe sleep decisions. If you are struggling to get your baby to sleep at night, reach out to us and l ...

Outside noise is sometimes unavoidable when raising little ones. Maybe you’re children are sharing a room and/or they don’t go to sleep at the same time. Maybe you’re in a situation where you have a newborn and a barking dog that is too loud. Or perhaps you have a partner that is a loud sleeper.  Using a sound machine could be an option that helps you drown out the outside nois ...

With the holiday season upon us, there are so many things to get in order.  The presents wrapped, the clothes packed, arrangements for the pets, and remembering to bring your child’s favorite toy.   Just thinking about all of that can make you feel tired and the last thing you want when you reach your destination, is to not to have a plan in place for your little one’s sleep.  ...

Have you ever heard of parasominas? I know I hadn't before I became a Sleep Specialist. Many years ago, I remember sitting in a sleep class and the instructor kept referring to parasomnias as though we all knew exactly what she was talking about about.  I looked around the room and thought, am I suppose to know what that means?  And then I thought, these don't happen to kids, d ...

Unfortunately, it is that time of the year again and the season for sickness is upon us! Every year once the tree leaves start to turn color, I know that means an increase of illness is coming.  If your baby is anything like mine were, you know that sickness can create some disruptions in your usual routine. Even the healthiest baby, in the most sterile environment, is going t ...

It’s that time again! Summer is coming to an end and we are gearing up and getting ready to send our kids back to school. This time of year can make you wonder about how to set up new routines to help your family be successful. How much sleep does your child need? Why does it matter? Let’s talk about it!   The week before school starts, try to gradually adjust your child’s be ...

Why didn’t we try this sooner?! As we speak he is sound asleep in his crib – and has been since 7:15 pm.

Working with Shannon, I went from 2-3 wake ups every night to 1 or 0. She aligned the plan with my preferred sleep cycle. She was always coaching, never judging. Shannon was great, I have referred MANY people to her! That's the best testament to her work that I can give.
