Sleep doesn't have to be a mystery.

Learn all about your child's sleep

sleep training with special needs

As a special needs parent, you have a lot on your plate.  You are a parent, teacher, therapist, chauffeur, nutritionist, lawyer, nurse, and more.  It’s all the more important that you are getting the rest you need to be the best parent for your child. However, you’re reading this because (probably) your child is not […]

dream feeding

If you’re a new or seasoned mom, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of dream feeding. To be honest, I had heard the term when my oldest was born, but I really didn’t understand what it meant. So let’s talk the ins and outs of dream feeding! First… What is a dream feed? A dream […]

road trips with kids

Road trips with kids…even though we’ve done it several times, it’s still feels like quite the ordeal each time. And planning them is one thing I’m pretty Type A about, but it’s certainly worked to our advantage. Our trips definitely don’t always go according to plan, which is to be very expected, but being prepared […]

blackout ez solution

If you’ve been around here for very long, you’ve heard me talk about how important it is for your child’s room to be DARK! I tell families that the ideal level of darkness is, “I can’t see my hand in front of my face.” I know that sounds impossible, and with lots of “blackout curtains” […]

mouth breathing, teeth grinding, lip and tongue tie

When I work with families, I help them adjust schedules, routines, and environments, and we walk through a plan that will teach their little one to fall asleep independently; we work on making behavioral and environmental changes that lead to success!

milestones and sleep regressions

Sleep regressions…yes, they’re a thing! But as I’ve mentioned before, rather than being connected to specific ages, sleep regressions are most often associated with our babies and toddlers reaching new developmental milestones, such as rolling, crawling, walking, and talking. Our little ones are ready to practice and they often do so when they should be […]

daylight savings

Raise your hand if you think daylight savings should just be done away with! (You can’t see me right now, but my hand is raised high.) The good news is that “springing forward” isn’t nearly as brutal as “falling back”; the clock will say 7:00 am when you wake up rather than 6:00 am, woohoo! […]

bedtime responsibilities

“I’m the only one who can put her to bed.” “I can’t go anywhere because she won’t sleep for anyone else.” “We have to choose between having friends over and an overtired baby, or missing out on time with friends because he’ll only sleep if I lay with him.”   Sound familiar? The good news […]

teething and sleep

“She must be teething.” I wish I could tell you how many times Jason and I said that very sentence, assuming Olivia’s sleep challenges must be connected to teething. I’m also embarrassed to tell you how many times we gave her baby Tylenol because we thought she must surely be in pain and therefore not […]
