About Me

As a Mommy of two , I’ve had two very different experiences with raising my children and assisting them in their sleep needs. My first born, Juwan was the easiest baby you can imagine. He slept well from the beginning and he thrived on structure and routine. It gave him a sense of security.

Nine 9 years later, Layla was born and I thought I had it all figured out, and that I could definitely do this again! But she was very different from her brother from day one. I was convinced she had extreme FOMO! She was just so curious and didn’t want to miss out on anything. Which led to poor sleep hygiene and two extremely sleep deprived parents!

I struggled so much to get her into a routine, and for me, as a qualified teacher, I thrive on routine. No matter what my husband and I tried, Layla just refused to sleep. She had constant night wakings, and poor day time naps, which led to a very fussy, sleep deprived baby! Doctors and pharmacists prescribed liquid Melatonin, and knowing what I do now , I never would have done it.

At 10 months of age, I hit rock bottom! We learned about Sleep Sense™ and didn’t think twice to start the program. It was as if the program was written for Layla. She started sleeping through from the very first night!

Sleep training definitely changed our lives and Layla is now a well- rested, happy and healthy baby that has 11 hours of consolidated sleep and beautiful day time naps. I wanted to share my experience and help other families achieve the essential sleep that every child AND every parent deserves. So I became a certified Sleep Sense™ Consultant.

The biggest misconception parents have is that it is “normal” to not sleep again once they become parents. But, sleep is a biological and essential human right. It should be no different when becoming a parent. Teaching your child to sleep is a gift to your child, one they will carry with them into adulthood.

Falling asleep, is simply learned behaviour, a habit and a skill that your child can easily learn from the beginning. I can help you create better sleep habits so the whole family can benefit and have beautiful, consolidated sleep.

My sleep vision: What should be done eventually, must be done immediately.
