Hi, my name is Valeska v. Toll, I´m a Certified Sleep Sense Consultant and the mother of two little girls, Carlotta born in 2017 and Philippa born in 2019.
When my first daughter was born in 2017, I quickly realized that babies are not born inherently knowing how to be great sleepers. It is a learned skill, and it is a skill that your children will be using for their entire lives.
Sleep-deprived, frazzled, unable to concentrate – I’ve been there!
Everyone said it would get better. At 4 months, at 6 months, at 12 months…eventually??
I read nearly every sleep book on the market, got endless amounts of advice from friends and family, but Carlotta’s sleep was like a roller coaster ride that I couldn’t get off. Struggling to find a sleep solution with my oldest daughter was the motivation for my sleep research and subsequent training.
After countless sleepless nights, I came across Dana Obleman’s Sleep Sense program.
That was the turning point!
Seven days after implementing the sleep plan we got from the consultant, the entire house was sleeping. My nearly 1 year of sleep deprivation was over and my obsession and passion to sleep began!
After successfully utilizing Sleep Sense techniques with both of my daughters, I decided to become a Certified Sleep Sense Consultant by myself and founded The Gentle Sleep Consultancy.
Since I had such a hard time by myself, my mission is to help other parents all over the world getting the amount of sleep they deserve!
