Hannah Peterson

Owner/Operator of A to Z Sleep Solutions

Pediatric Nurse

Certified Sleep Consultant

Certified Advanced Sensitive Sleep Consultant

I was born and raised in New Zealand as one of 8 children. Being in a large family I have always been around babies and children.  I became a single mum at 19, but I didn’t let that stop me from putting myself through nursing school in 2006. I graduated three years later as a registered nurse.

I was privileged to work as a community pediatric in-home nurse, doing well-child checkups and helping families have the information they needed to be prepared for their growing babies. As a pediatric nurse, my experience included, but was not limited to, breastfeeding support, nutrition support, sleep help, and many other important aspects of care.

In my spare time, I loved being a mum to my growing son, being a part of my local church, and opening my home to foster children in my local community. In the three years, I was a foster mum, I had over 80 children in my home. It was a huge eye-opening experience. Although heartbreaking at times it was definitely rewarding.

I married the love of my life in 2012. Nick and I had known each other for over ten years and he lived in the United States. Once married, I started the process of migrating to the states. Once I relocated, I saw an unmet need. Many new parents were struggling to get their children to sleep. They lacked support and resources. The fatigue, frustrations, and anxiety caused by sleep struggles were eroding their homes, their jobs, and their marriages.

In 2015, I completed my training as a Baby Sleep Consultant through the international accredited Baby Sleep Consultant. In 2020 continuing my sleep training education, I received the title Advanced Sensitive Sleep Consultant, from the Institute of Sensitive Sleep Consulting.  They are also now using our REST model to help educate sleep consultant’s worldwide.  

Now, a mother of five, I am able to use all of my professional and personal experiences to give back to parents in need. This is a huge passion of mine. I set out each day to offer hope and help one family at a time by offering support to new parents, as well as even the on-going care families need to receive.

Senior Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

I’m a mom of four, and our house is always filled with spunk, energy, chaos and (finally) sleep!

When my kids were born, I thought I knew what to expect. I had a degree in Sociology with an emphasis on Child Development and Human Services. I worked Early Childhood and Elementary Education, and had been an investigator with the Department of Children/Family Services. I thought I had it covered.

My first child was a great sleeper from day one, sleeping 7 hours a night. Our pediatrician actually scolded me for letting him sleep too long. He was a dream when it came to sleeping, but it was everything else he did that left me perplexed.

My next two children were so different.  I did everything the same, but my second was a mess, sleep was so stressful, and by the time my third was in the mix I had given up hope that any of us would ever sleep well again. I felt defeated.

I read all the parenting books, researched, googled, joined community groups to glean advice and tricks…but nothing clicked.

After years of struggling, I asked my friend Hannah about how sleep training was different from everything else I thought I knew.

With Hannah’s guidance, I started to understand all the pieces that I had been missing.  In a few short weeks, I accomplished what I couldn’t do in years – and everyone was happier!

Eventually, I knew I wanted to join her team to help others who were in my shoes. Through my certification with the Institute of Sensitive Sleep Consultants, I learned that there were more biology and science to sleep than I ever expected. I’m so excited to now be a resource for other families needing that extra support. I love the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child,” and I wholeheartedly agree. It is okay to reach out for guidance, and I would love to support your family on this journey!

Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

Growing up I knew I always wanted to be a teacher. I always “played” teacher with my stuffed animals. Once I went to college I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology, a minor in Family Studies and then decided to go on to obtain my Graduate Teaching Licensure. I spent five years as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher and then went on to Supervise a Community Education Program through St. Paul Public Schools. (Minnesota)

When I became pregnant with my first child I immediately became anxious about the amount of sleep I would be getting once he was born. I began searching online for all things ‘Sleep for Infants’. My passion ensued when I realized I could use my background in psychology and teaching to help others about getting their babies to sleep and also at the same time educate them about the science behind it. After months of searching online to see where I could pursue my new-found passion, I found Hannah Peterson’s company, A to Z Sleep Solutions. While talking to her and listening to all of her knowledge, I knew this was exactly where I needed to be.

In the meantime, I completed my certification as a Sensitive Infant and Toddler Sleep Consultant through the Institute of Sensitive Sleep Consulting. Hannah has helped me sleep train my own son, which has been a true blessing to me, my husband and our 4-year-old Lab. I absolutely LOVE this work and cannot wait to help you and your family.

Phoenix, Arizona

Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

Licensed Associate Counselor

From early in life, my passion was working with children and families. I had a very close extended family and loved the idea of being a part of the lives of other families in deep and meaningful ways. I attended Northern Arizona University, receiving a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, specializing in developmental psychology. After a couple of years of teaching first grade here in Arizona, my new husband and I moved to Florida for a chance to work in Walt Disney World. I was able to teach informally in the most magical setting, and I was also able to start my Master’s degree in counseling. When my husband and I were ready to come back to Arizona, I was able to transfer to Grand Canyon University to finish my master’s degree. I worked in foster care for two years while completing my degree, and was very involved in the foster care world. When I became licensed as a counselor, I chose to specialize in helping children, adolescents, and families. I now work with many foster and adoptive families part-time.

In 2011, my first son was born, and I quickly learned that sleep deprivation is a serious issue. We felt exhausted, frustrated, and hopeless. Unfortunately, I had no idea that sleep consultants existed at that time. This little blessing came just as my husband and I decided to train to be foster parents. When our son was 18 months old, we opened our home for children in need. After two years of fostering, we completed our second adoption and closed our license.

Our children are now 7, 6, and 5 and all unique and beautiful little humans. I continue to work part-time as a counselor and have the privilege of being available to our children for school functions, sports practices, and everything in between. I met Hannah at our mutual MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. I was fascinated by these proven sleep techniques that she talked about there. I decided to complete the course and Sensitive Sleep Consultant certification program. I loved learning about the biology of sleep, the best practices for safe sleep and how to help families with infants and young children. I have had the privilege of working with Hannah and learning from her extensive knowledge. I am so thrilled to be a part of the A to Z Sleep Solutions team! I would love the opportunity to work with your family and support you through this process.

 Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

 I always felt confused on what my purpose and passion was until I had my first child. I am a motivated person, who put my all into each educational endeavor and each career I stepped into, but I never felt that, “YES! This is who I am!!!” feeling until my first son was born. The plan was to go back to the job I loved after maternity leave, and I tried for a month to go back to being that person, but I could not. I had found my passion: it was children. So, I left my career and stayed home with my baby (while doing some accounting for my family’s business on the side).

As a new mom, I put my Bachelor’s Degrees in Business Management and Economics to work still. I did research on each parenting decision I needed to make. I put hours of time into investigating how to get this lovely first child of mine to sleep. However, I could not get the pieces to come together. I finally found Hannah, and my son’s sleeping fell into perfect place. About a year later, I saw her job posting to become a sleep consultant with her. I was not actively looking for another job, but the more I thought about helping families become happier and healthier through getting the sleep they needed, the more fire I felt pushing me in this direction. Now, here I am, a Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant who absolutely loves her job.

Sleep is often the biggest road block to a family enjoying their time together. Helping families feel that incredible joy of being together when they are well rested and therefore, happy, is my obsession now. No one deserves to feel that dark cloud of sleep deprivation that can hover over every aspect of one’s life. Therefore, I am so thrilled to help families gain the sleep they need so they can live their lives to the fullest extent.

 Phoenix, Arizona

 Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

For as long as I can remember I have been passionate about child development. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Elementary Education and an emphasis in Bilingual and Multicultural Education. I married my high school sweetheart and moved back home to Phoenix where I spent the next six years as a first and second grade teacher in a Structured English Immersion classroom. 
When I became a mom in 2013, my entire world changed. My first child built my confidence as a mother. My second child taught me to find joy in motherhood, after battling postpartum depression.  My third child challenged me. He was a colicky, high needs baby. My husband is a firefighter. Because of his schedule I spent many nights alone, desperately trying to get him to sleep.  Within the first few months of his life, I felt like I lost all of the confidence and joy I had in being a mother. I began to research infant sleep and realized that it is so much more than a schedule. I worked hard to get my son  sleeping well, and in the process, I rediscovered the confidence and joy I had lost. There I also found my passion for helping other parents find their confidence and joy. I felt like sleep was an essential building block for helping parents learn to love parenthood. 
I met Hannah through a mutual friend and quickly discovered that she had the same passion. I began pursuing my certification as an infant and toddler sleep consultant through the Institute of Sensitive Sleep Consulting. Through my certification I became fascinated with the science of infant and toddler sleep: Developmental milestones,  nutrition, psychology, anatomy, and so much more.  
I am thrilled to be working with A to Z Sleep Solutions. My hope is to help remove the haze of sleep deprivation for both you and your child and help families discover their own joy and confidence in parenthood.

I’m a mama to three beautiful girls.  I had my first daughter while I was still in college, and to say that she was an easy baby would be a huge understatement.  She slept like a dream (in our bed, but I had no problem with that as she was my only one!).  She easily transitioned from co-sleeping to her own bed at 18 months with no trouble at all.  My second daughter also transitioned easily at 10 months.  I felt like a child-sleep expert!  My third daughter came along and burst my “sleep expert” bubble quickly.  While she started out as a great sleeper, the 4-month sleep regression hit us like a brick wall.    Suddenly, she was up every 1-2 hours to nurse, and required me to nurse or rock her to sleep every single waking.  I was also working full-time, so I was exhausted.  Something had to change.  

 I did a google search for sleep consultants and landed on Kate from A to Z Sleep Solutions.  Knowing consistency was key, I settled in for a rough week with my littlest.  However, she surprised me and quickly adapted to sleeping in her crib, putting herself to sleep, and became a happier baby!  When my training time with Kate was over, the only question I had left was how could I become a sleep consultant and help other families like she had ours.  

 I know what life with little sleep is like.  I would love to make you a member of the “Formerly Sleep Deprived” club along with myself.  Now the only reason I claim sleep depravity is too much Netflix time while my kids sleep soundly upstairs.

 Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

I’m a boy mom of two littles and I live  in West Michigan with my husband Sean. I have always wanted to be a mother, since I was a little girl playing house with my dolls, barbies and school with my brothers and friends I was the mom, always. I got that dream fulfilled when I was pregnant with our first son. My husband and I knew we wanted a big family and to have children close in age. I went to college in a small town of Durango, Colorado and got my bachelors. Then continued my education in Denver for early childhood development. I was a professional nanny working for an agency out of Denver. I loved being a nanny and grew to love the newborn and infant stage.

I always seemed to be good with newborns and infants and that guided me to obtain my postpartum doula certification. I then became successful in caring for them and helping postpartum mothers through the early months of motherhood. Helping people is a true passion of mine!

I am so excited that I met Hannah and I can’t wait to use my skills and knowledge in helping teach and guide our clients to get their babies to sleep, grow, and thrive to be happy and healthy individuals.

 Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

When I had my first child, my entire world was changed. Before she was born, I researched pregnancy and childbirth, but I had no idea that baby sleep was something I should have prepared myself for! Like most new parents, I believed that my baby would sleep when she was tired. I had heard that the newborn period was challenging, but I didn’t quite realize how challenging it would be with a combination of sleep deprivation and raging postpartum hormones. I was desperate for some sleep, so I dove headfirst into any literature I could find. I discovered that sleep wasn’t as cut and dry as you might think, and that babies don’t always sleep when they’re tired! The discovery that baby sleep can be so delicate and constantly evolving was shocking to me and I wondered why there wasn’t more access to sleep education for new parents. Armed with my new education around the science of baby sleep, it didn’t take long to turn my daughter into a champion sleeper. My friends and family were amazed, and I found a new passion for helping other mamas like myself who are lost and desperate for their families to sleep well again. I began compiling all the information I learned into a sleep guide for babies which I planned to one day use to help new parents like myself.  I helped many of my friends with their own children, and quickly became the go-to person in my social circle for all things sleep related.

When my son was born a few years later, I was convinced that I had the tools I needed for a beautiful sleeper right from the start. I didn’t think there was a single thing he could throw at me that I wasn’t prepared for. How wrong I was! My son taught me that every child is so different and unique. I realized that I had some gaps in my knowledge, and that if I really wanted to help parents, I needed to fill in the pieces I was missing. It was then that I discovered the Institute of Sensitive Sleep. I felt that their gentle methods really resonated with my own beliefs about baby sleep, and I was hopeful that the Institute would help me solve the puzzle of my second child’s sleep issues. After getting into the coursework, I realized there was an entirely different aspect of sleep from an emotional and psychological point of view that I hadn’t even considered before. I learned about attachment theory and the way that our children bond with us, and suddenly the full view snapped into perspective. I am happy to report that BOTH of my children are now excellent sleepers.

After years in the making, my baby sleep journey brought me to A to Z Sleep Solutions. I now get the opportunity to help families and collaborate with a group of women who have the same passion for baby sleep that I do. I am so excited to help you and your children towards more restful sleep!

  • 5 star review  Kate Swanson was our sleep trainer and she was exactly what we needed and the right time. We had been through lots of sleep training before we found her. I was worried we had tried everything we could think of and my daughter was still taking hours to go to sleep and not sleeping through the night at 2 years old. I felt Kate listened to everything we had been through and tried already and came up with a plan that was exactly what we needed. This was a last ditch effort for us before baby #2 came. I wanted it to work but was afraid the sleep training wouldn't work just like it hadn't in the past. We learned what we had been doing wrong and what to change and had a different, positive approach this time. We saw a change right away and things improved almost nightly. We had the usual couple of bad nights after several goods nights as my daughter tried one last time to get what she wanted. But we pushed through and now we know how to get through sleep regressions. And I still have Kate as support when questions come up. This was an amazing experience and my entire family is sleeping more and better every night.

    5 star review  Hannah is amazing! She gave me the confidence and tools I needed to crib train my 15 month old. We not only co-slept from birth but we also had a very erratic bed time (usually 9:30PM). With Hannah's help and plan my daughter was sleeping in her crib and through the night after 2 nights, going to bed at 7pm! We now have a consistent sleep schedule and I am forever grateful, especially with twins on the way. Hire her, you won't regret it and it's not nearly as painful as you'd think.

    5 star review  Hannah is such a blessing and an answer to prayer! I thought since I had a toddler and been through the whole sleep thing with her, that I had it down, but I couldn't figure out our 4 month old. He was getting up multiple times throughout the night, and I couldn't figure out what kind of schedule he was on during the day. I was so exhausted. Hannah explained sleep to me, and how it works, and what things to do to best help baby to sleep. She gave me two sample outline schedules, that fit around my toddlers schedule, to follow. I was so nervous to implement the sleep training, but she was so encouraging and available. Each night I'd fill our our log for the day, and would have an email in my inbox the next morning giving feedback for the previous day. She would be so encouraging, and at the same time give me helpful feedback on how to alter it a bit for the day. It took a good week, but Kannon's sleeping totally adjusted and is now on a great schedule! He still wakes up a little more than I'd like (we're still working on it, and figuring it out) but it's so nice to know what to do to help change things, and that what I'm doing is right on track with what he needs. I don't know what I would have done without Hannah! It was worth every penny!

  • 5 star review  Hannah was such an amazing support during our sleep training with our son. We ended up having to have 2 weeks of support from her, as our son decided he was going to dig his heels in! She helped us modify our plan to help our son get the sleep he needed. She also helped us realize that giving our son a little more space is what he needed to calm down. That was hard for me, but once she helped me see that, our son did much better. Our son's sleep is definitely a work in progress still, but we feel Hannah has given us the tools to forge ahead and keep helping our son learn strong sleep skills/habits. I appreciated Hannah's caring and empathetic approach. I always felt like I was important to Hannah and that I had her undivided attention when we would talk. I am glad we didn't wait any longer to seek Hannah's support as she has helped our family so much! Thank you Hannah!

    positive review  I bought the online toddler workshop and still need to make the time to do it buuut I can attest to Hannah Peterson helping our sanity with our little man! At 7.5 months Hobbes was waking 5-6x every night with my husband or I going in to comfort him and 2-3 of those times were me feeding him. Plus Hobbes' crying would often then wake our 4 yo daughter! We were all sleep deprived and miserable! Within a week after buckling down and following a more rigid nap schedule and bedtime and taking into account the nighttime temperature dip, Hobbes was down to only waking once for a middle of the night feed. Within another week Hobbes was sleeping through the night, a full 12 hours, night after night after glorious night! We have had a handful of middle of the night wakes with some awful sounding crying/screaming and my husband and I decided to vere off the steady course a bit and I've ended up doing a single night time feeding. However, each morning after the single wake Hobbes had a new tooth or two poking through. We did what felt right to us at the time knowing we may be throwing the "sleep training" out the window. Much to our happy surprise the nighttime wakes have only lasted 1-3 days while the tooth pokes through and then our 9 month Hobbes is back to sleeping those wonderful 12 (or sometimes even a little more) hours without waking! He's even practicing his talking or pulling to stand in the crib if he wakes before it's time for us to get him up! Thank you Hannah for helping us help our infant to sleep through the night... now time to help us help our toddler!

    5 star review  I highly recommend Hannah! She is very sweet, knowledgeable, & supportive. I had to lay down (sometimes for over an hour) to get our 2 year old to sleep and then he would wake several times a night until he ended up in our bed (kicking and rolling all over the place). With Hannah's help, he now falls asleep on his own, in his room, and sleeps through the night! It wasn't an easy task and I thought about giving up at times; however, I am so glad we stuck with it - it was well worth it. Thanks Hannah for this life changer.

  • positive review  Hannah helped us with our 4 month old after sleep regression hit us hard. Since we don't live in AZ (in fact not even in the US) we chose the email support. Hannah was INCREDIBLE! I am so grateful for her help! She even noticed half way through that we needed to change our plan - and now we are ALL sleeping! I didn't think it was possible that our sweet girl would nap and sleep in her crib - THANK YOU HANNAH!!!!

    5 star review  I discovered Hannah in a moment of desperation in the middle of the night while trying to get my screaming 2 year old to sleep. Hannah gained my trust in a quick 15 minute phone consult and I've utilized her expertise multiple times over the past few months. My 2 year old son decided to boycott sleeping at the same time that we brought home our newborn daughter. Not only were we dealing with a new baby up every few hours, but my son demanded that I sleep with him in his bed starting at 11pm every. single. night. Mornings were equally as rough as I get up for work at 5am so when my alarm went off in his bedroom, he was up for the day too! We decided since we were going to have Hannah help us sleep train our 2 year old, we might as well have her help us jump start our 5 month old also. Within 1 week, our son was sleeping by himself for 11+ hours and our daughter was out of our room/Rock n Play, in her own crib, dropped a feeding, and sleeping 7-8 hours! Prior to Hannah's intervention, I literally felt like a gray cloud followed me throughout my days... wondering how in the world I was going to get both my kids to have better sleep habits and if I would EVER feel energized again. My reoccurring thought to help my sanity was, "He'll eventually learn to sleep without me. Surely he won't want mom in his bed when he's 16?!" lol Hannah offered us the encouragement, attentiveness, knowledge, accessibility and optimism that we so desperately needed. If it wasn't for her and Dream Baby, we would still be 2 incredibly sleep deprived parents just barely getting through the day, and depriving our kids of the attention and energy that they deserved from us. There are no words to explain our appreciation for what Hannah has taught us; not only about the science behind sleep, but recommended feedings, daily schedules, etc for both kids. I will (and have) recommend her to every mom I know dealing with sleep issues (who isn't?!) She knows her stuff and is both passionate and compassionate about what she does. I promise you won't regret contacting her. Thank you, thank you, thank you Hannah! My entire family is happier because of you!

    5 star review  I was super skeptical, to be honest. I was just so fed up with wasting my money with professionals of all kind to help my little one. I am so glad I worked with Hannah! My quality of life as a new mom has improved dramatically! I started seeing miraculous results the very first day I started implementing the plan Hannah had given us to help my baby take naps during the day. I have struggled for so long and super maxed out on stress. I regret not buying the newborn package once my baby was born, it could have helped so much. Thank you Hannah!

  • 5 star review  I was in search of someone who could help me and be a support system for getting my 6 month old son on track and sleeping better. I wasn't a fan of having a stranger come into my home and working with my son, I wanted to be the person there with him. Hannah was the perfect person for this! I also loved how she is a mother herself and has a background in pediatric nursing. I felt confident in her skills and took the plunge! Working with Hannah was such a pleasure. She is very knowledgeable about babies sleep patterns and how to plan and schedule your day around the optimal times they should be sleeping based on their age. She really worked with me on setting up the best atmosphere to encourage my little guy to sleep better. It is still a work in progress, but as she told me consistency is key! He has already shown so much improvement after our week of working together and I can't wait to see how he continues to improve! He went from being a chronic cat-napper and waking every hour or two at night to now taking longer naps and only waking a few times at night. Hannah will work with you to find the best situation for your family and only doing what you are comfortable with. I definitely recommend her services to any parents looking to help their little ones sleep better.

    positive review  Hannah and her team at A to Z Sleep Solutions are amazing! At 5 months old my baby would rarely nap anywhere but in my arms and was waking frequently at night. I read all of baby-sleep books; bought most of the sleep aids; sang all of the songs; used sound machines...nothing worked on a consistent basis. Then I saw that Hannah had a 2 week nap time sleep consultant package. It was the best parenting decision I had made in 5 months—after 2 days of sleep training my baby was napping for 1-2hrs,for each nap, on her own!! Hannah was very supportive and responsive during the entire 2 weeks (despite being 9 months pregnant with her 6th baby). She even answered a few questions I had about nighttime sleep. It’s been over a month since then and my daughter is still napping, consistently, on her own and sleeping 10-11hrs at night! I cannot recommend Hannah and A to Z Sleep Solutions enough. If you are beyond sleep deprived/losing your mind, call/email/DM Hannah right away. THANK YOU, HANNAH!

    5 star review  EDIT (read original review first): Since my original review, we hired Hannah once again because my daughter's sleep got off track when she went through a major leap in language development. We saw early morning wake ups happening almost every day and we had a very, very, VERY tired and cranky little girl on our hands during the day every day. We contacted Hannah for help getting rid of the early wake ups. Hannah once again listened to us and formulated a plan to get our daughter sleeping longer and relieve stress for us during the day. After just a couple weeks of persistent work on our part as we followed Hannah's plan, our daughter went from sleeping from 7:30pm-5:00am to sleeping 6:30pm-6:30am. She was more well-rested, happier, and enjoyable during the day. Since the original shift in sleep habits, we have welcomed a new baby into our family and there has been SO much flex in our schedule. Our oldest has slept in so many different people's houses over the course of the last month and none of it has affected her sleep habits. Not only that, but we have slowly been able to shift her sleep to 7:00pm-7/8:00am, which is a better fit for our family's schedule than an earlier bedtime. She has handled the transition of a new sibling beautifully and we are grateful for Hannah's help in that. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ORIGINAL REVIEW: Hannah Peterson has been an incredible blessing to our family. Before Hannah helped us with our daughter's sleep, we were dealing with short naps (not more than 45 minutes), night wakings (2-5 a night), early morning wake-ups (5-6am), and we were all exhausted when we woke up in the morning. We "sleep-trained" our daughter around 4 months and taught her to fall asleep on her own, but now our problem was that she wasn't STAYING asleep. We contacted Hannah when our daughter was almost a year old. To be honest, we felt like we had tried everything - we had read countless articles and blogs and nothing was working. As tired as WE were, I can't imagine how tired our daughter was. Hannah listened to our concerns well and she thoroughly gathered information before giving us a plan of action. I felt that Hannah cared about us and what we were going through and she never minimized anything that I brought to her attention. A couple days after I filled out the initial assessment, Hannah got back to us with an AMAZING plan to help our daughter sleep longer and deeper. The plan not only included personalized information for us, but it also included a lot of general information about baby sleep. It didn't just tell me what to do, but why it was important. I learned about sleep debt and sleep cycles and it all made sense to me. Within days of implementing Hannah's plan, our daughter went from taking two 45-minute naps each day to taking a quick morning nap (30 minutes on purpose) and a long afternoon nap (2-2.5 hours). Never in her life had she napped that long! Additionally, our daughter started going to bed around 7pm and waking up between 7-8am!! I couldn't believe it. When it all started happening, we thought it was just too good to be true! But it's not been about a month of normal naps, no night wakings and reasonable morning wake ups. Without a doubt, I can say that Hannah is the one who was the catalyst for this change. She checked in with us throughout our plan and has continually offered to provide more support if it is needed. I can't recommend Hannah highly enough! She is a great sleep consultant and well worth your time and money!

  • 5 star review  Hannah saved us!! We had 5 month old twin boys, and we were struggling so much with naps and night time, and I had no idea how to get them on the same schedule. Hannah will work with any parenting style, and really fits her plan into each families preferences. She is patient, responsive, and extremely encouraging. Even after 2 days of implementing her plan, we saw huge improvements in our babies sleep! We are now a month in to using her plan, and we are on a regular and consistent schedule, and they are happier babies! They sleep so great now. We are grateful for Hannah and her care for our family!

    5 star review  Hannah is truly amazing!Our 4 month old went from waking every hour through the night and only napping for 20 minutes at a time during the day to sleeping 12 hours at a night and over an hour for each nap within a matter of days! We saw results instantly after the first night and each day got better and better. I was that mom that was so against sleep training or letting my baby cry, but Hannah created a plan I was comfortable with. She is very knowledgeable about babies, their sleep cycles and growth and uses all of this to make a sleep training plan that is developmentally appropriate. She supported us every step of the way- texting and emailing to check in and answer all my crazy questions. Hannah's help had not only improved quality of life for my baby, but for my husband and I as well. Her services are priceless! Thanks Hannah!

  • positive review  After baby waking up constantly in the middle of the night (ending up in our bed every night) and needing to be held for 30-45 naps, we decided to get some much needed help from Hannah! It was the best decision we’ve made for us and baby in the last 7 months! Baby is now sleeping 12 hours a night + 2 solid naps a day IN HIS CRIB! He is able to completely put himself to sleep now without any help and Mom & Dad are able to get some quality time together while baby sleeps! I would highly recommend Hannah’s sleeping expertise!

    5 star review  I took Hannah's 4-24 month old online sleep workshop. The 2 hours were PACKED with information! I loved learning about the different things babes need in order to have good sleep and then learning about the multiple sleep training methods. I figured out how to sleep train my first baby without going to the class and it was rough even though I had lots of information from my research on Hannah's websites. I am now due with my second baby and I am actually excited to sleep train because I know it's going to go so much better! I really appreciate the confidence Hannah has been able to give me. Thank you so much Hannah!

    5 star review  Hannah has helped my babe sleep in her crib for all naps and night sleep, fall alseep on her own without nursing, without a binki, without a swaddle and without me in the room, extend her naps from 30 mins to well over an hour and sometimes up to 2 hrs. I will admit it, we were skeptical. Our babe was high needs, but she has made such amazing improvements. She used to only let me hold her. Seriously, no one else could hold her, not even her dad. That is changing and it's going to be amazing for my daughter to receive love from other people. I can't wait for her to realize how much love she has in her world. I have an older child so we need to be flexible, Hannah has helped me figure out how to do just that. I have been at the zoo all day and had my daughter do amazing and still fall asleep at night without any fuss. Hannah is attentive and supportive. She adjusted things for our lifestyle and our babe's needs/personality. I cannot say enough good things about Hannah and the service she provided us. I am actually sad I am not talking to her multiple times a day anymore. Love Dream Baby Sleep

  • 5 star review  I just want to shout from the rooftops that my son has slept through the night for 12 consecutive hours for the past week thanks to Hannah! At first I was pretty reluctant to do this program. I didn't doubt Hannah's expertise and experience, but my son has had such numerous sleep issues ever since he was born. He is two years old and has yet to sleep through the night. In addition, he has had severe night terrors multiple times a night, (every night!) for the past six months. The only way to soothe him was to sleep with him and give him 12 bottles every night. This of course led to multiple diapers and pee-throughs and utter frustration and fatigue. Believe me when I say that we exhausted ALL of our resources (sleep specialist physician, sleep study, blood work, naturopath and homeopatheic remedies, diet change, etc). With a baby on the way and at the end of my rope, Hannah was referred to me by a friend and I went for it as a last resort and out of sheer desperation. Sleep training was not nearly as painful as I imagined it would be! Hannah was so supportive and was there every step of the way to answer all of my crazy questions. My son hasn't had a single night terror this entire week! He is a completely different kid. He is even eating better since he's not drinking a million bottles throughout the night. Hannah was an absolute answer to prayer and I would definitely recommend her with all of my heart to anyone struggling with a child who has sleep issues! Thank you Hannah for changing our lives for the better!!!!

    positive review  We had the most amazing experience with Heather! She went out of her way to make sure our little guy had a schedule that worked for him and for us. Our little guy is peacefully sleeping like a little angel in his crib thanks to Heather! Our lives are so much easier too because we know when he is going to sleep and for how long, which allows us to finally get some things done. Heather changed our life! Thank you for everything!

    5 star review  I have met Hannah several times, at various places. I went to several of her coffee sessions and gleaned as much information as I could. She hands out helpful pamphlets, which are great to have at home because it's so easy to forget things. My daughter, who is now almost 1, had NEVER in her life slept a stretch longer than 5 hours, until I started working with Hannah. We had gone through every permutation of helping her to sleep- bedsharing, crib in the room, crib side-car...When I started working with Hannah, my husband had been sleeping on the floor of my daughter's room for 3 weeks trying to gently coach her to sleep. She was crying so much each night, though, that we were ready to quit that and put her back int he bed. I even bought a king sized bed, in anticipation of bedsharing for the foreseeable future. Cue Hannah: the VERY FIRST DAY, she slept her longest stretch ever. As I made changes to my routines, schedule, and meals, it only got better. I was shocked that it seemed so easy- my daughter never cried more than 40 minutes (she was previously crying for at least 2 hours a night with us in the room). She got so good at sleep, I would put her in her crib for naps or bed, she'd roll over, and just fall asleep. It was like magic. I can't recommend Hannah enough. She was kind, understanding, put my fears at ease, and answered my questions quickly and clearly. If you're ready to make a change (YOU need to be ready, because consistency is the key), talking to Hannah will be the best thing you've done.
