When my daughter was 7 months old, I found myself in a deep hole I didn’t know how to get out of. I had wanted to be a mommy my entire life and had imagined what it would be like. But my reality was far from those images. We were so sleep deprived that some days I could barely function, let alone be the mom I wanted so desperately to be.
My daughter was waking upwards of 6-7 times a night, needing to be nursed back to sleep every time. I felt like we were in a downward spiral that was never going to end. And I didn’t know what to do.
Finally, I found help. We started, with the help of a sleep consultant, to teach our baby to develop the skills she needed to sleep. It worked so well and FAST! (A heavenly light shone down upon us and angels began to sing.) Honestly, our lives changed drastically.
My husband and I have now added a son to our family. I was able to work with him very early in his life to avoid any of the sleep problems our daughter had. Having 2 children who don’t fight going to bed is a dream come true and greatly contributes to our happy home. It also gives us time to be together as husband and wife, not just mommy and daddy. And I believe with all my heart that a happy mommy and/or daddy make happy children.
This is why I chose to become a Sleep Sense Consultant. I wanted to help other parents to eliminate any issues, caused by sleeplessness, that were keeping them from having the relationship with their children that they dreamed of. During our time together, I will educate, guide, and support you so you can confidently help your child to learn healthy sleep habits that will last a lifetime.
