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 and out of 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 seven, including one set of twins, 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.

Peoria, Arizona

Senior 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.

 Senior 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.   

 

Amanda Brewer

 

 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.

 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!

Glendale, Arizona

Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

My name is Grace Lindvall. I am a mom of 2 beautiful little loves and wife to my husband Will. Prior to joining the A to Z Sleep Team I was a teacher in the classroom for five years. I graduated from ASU in 2016 with an interdisciplinary degree, went on to teach at my alma mater high school and once our family started growing I knew it was time to make a shift. I eagerly joined Hannah’s team after having her help sleep training my daughter and realized that I LOVE the troubleshooting and configuring that it involves. One of my favorite parts of this job is being able to walk alongside parents and encourage them as we seek to get them better sleep. I firmly believe in the saying that sleep is not a privilege, but a biological right.

  • 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.

    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  Before I hired Hannah, my wife would drive our 18-mo. daughter around town for 30-60 minutes to get her to fall asleep. At night, our daughter would wake-up after 3-4 hours. When this happened, my wife had to transfer our girl from the crib to her bed to get our girl to fall back asleep. About 3-4 hours later, our girl would be up again after getting no more than 8 hours of total sleep. This lack of sleep understandably made our daughter into a cranky little person. Night 1 w/ Hannah - our daughter fell asleep on her own within 50 minutes and she slept through the night. Night 2 w/ Hannah - she fell asleep on her own within 10 minutes. She now puts herself to sleep within a few minutes and sleeps at least 11 hours straight each night. Her mid-day naps last approximately 2 hours with no issues at all. The increased sleep translates into improved behavior, better eating habits, and improved cognitive development. Just as important, my wife is getting better sleep! This investment into our baby's sleep was a no-brainer. I did expect the consultation to yield positive results, but I was not prepared for how immediate the results would be. I am completely satisfied with this service and I gratefully endorse A to Z Sleep Solutions with Hannah. Thanks again Hannah! Sincerely, Randy Krug

  • 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!

    positive review  Hannah is wonderful to work with... I am a first time mom and I have a lot of anxiety.. my baby used to nap on me for the first 4 months of his life and slept in a packnplay in our room after hours of bouncing and would get up a couple of times and then have early morning wake ups... he didn’t sleep more than 8 hours a night and was fussy all day... after working with Hannah for 2-3 weeks he is sleeping 12+ hours a night, I put him in his crib and he goes to sleep without crying in his own room! I have my life back and my nights are free to hang out with my husband! Thank you Hannah!

Knock on wood this is night 3 now with no crying or tears to go to sleep. She rolls herself right over onto her side or belly and falls asleep within minutes now. I'm so happy! Thank you Hannah for the advice and the courage to keep trying! I feel like I made a friend in you. You make motherhood seem possible �

    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  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  I cannot thank Hannah enough for helping me get my 17 moth old toddler, from co-sleeping to sleeping on his own. I was the parent that could not stand the thought of my child crying himself to sleep but I was at my wits end. I searched for all kinds of answers and read many books. I also hired a "sleep coach' to help me 3 months prior to hiring Hannah, and that experience turned sour. You can truly tell that Hannah loves what she does and is not in it for the money. She gave us a few gentle sleep options to help me get my son to sleeping on his own. My son was sleeping 12 hours on his own for the second night. Hannah has always been there for me from day I messaged her on FB. Not only has she been there for me to help with sleep for my son, but many other topics/issues as a first time mom. She has helped me gain my sanity back. I feel rested again! I had no idea how being sleep deprived can affect almost everything in your life. With that being said, sleep is so important for the whole family. Message me if you have any questions.

    5 star review  My 7 month old was a terrible sleeper and would wake up every couple of hours throughout the night and wasn’t able to self sooth or put himself back to sleep. I would have to rock him, bounce him on a ball or breastfeed him to get him back to sleep. I tried so many different things and just when I was about to give up, I came across Dreambaby. I can’t thank Hannah enough for her services!!! She saved my life and sanity! Within a couple nights, my little guy was sleeping better and actually taking naps that were longer than 30 minutes. Hannah was so beyond helpful and gave me the strength and encouragement to get through the sleep training process. I can’t thank her enough for everything she did for my family!!! I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with getting their little one to sleep. Thank you Hannah for everything!!!!

    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!!!!

  • 5 star review  When we started working with Hannah our daughter was 9 months old and would not go to sleep without nursing or sleep in her crib. No one was getting any decent sleep and I really didn't think anything was going to change this. Everyone kept telling me that she needed to cry it out or I just had to wait for it get better. Neither of these things sounded like a good option. Hannah asked us thoughtful questions and was able to give us a wonderful sleep plan we could work with. Because our daughter was a bit older it took longer to change her sleep patterns but we did, and she is now a great sleeper in her own bed. She also naps on a regular schedule and does not have to be nursed to sleep. I had a done a lot of reading on my own but all the advice got very confusing. Hannah was able to streamline all that advice into something that made sense for our family. Thank you Hannah for all your help!! The Haley Family

    5 star review  Let me just start by saying I THOUGHT THIS WAS IMPOSSIBLE. My daughter at 6 months was maybe sleeping a max of two hours straight and in the bed with me. I tried sleep training via Google search but nothing was working and everything told me something different. I never felt like i was doing the right thing. I finally did some research and found Hannah online. She contacted me immediately and set up a time for us to talk. She listened carefully as i told her my concerns and what our current situation was like. I ended up choosing the package with text/call help and it was the perfect thing for us. When we needed quick help or weren’t sure of something it was easy to just ask her for reassurance and guidance. She was so quick to respond always and checked in multiple times a day. I can tell she loves what she is doing. She genuinely wants to help. By the very first night my daughter slept 10 hours. I literally thought that only existed in fairytales. She goes to be at 7:30 and wakes at 7 every day. I am so thankful. This literally saved my life, my marriage, my job, everything. I am able to enjoy my daughter without being frustrated and exhausted from sleep deprivation. My husband and i now have 2-3 hours of alone time which is much needed. I have been able to begin a consistent workout regiment and have me time. This was the best purchase i have ever made. It is the most affordable and best bang for your buck sleep training program. Hannah is amazing and i am forever grateful.

    5 star review  I was lucky enough to have a one on one phone session with Hannah where we walked through her workbook and she assisted me in creating a personalized plan for my 15 month old daughter. She asked questions about our schedule and my daughter’s current schedule and personality and we created a plan that worked for us, our parenting style and our current schedule as full time working parents. She also assisted us in making a plan for when my daughter goes to daycare and turns 18 months so we can adjust to their sleep schedule and drop down to one nap. Not only was Hannah very personable, understanding and easy to talk to but she knew her stuff. I swear I haven’t slept in a year and we were SO DESPERATE for one night of uninterrupted sleep. We hadn’t slept a full night in 6+ months and naps were hell as well. She has always slept in her crib in our room and has some serious separation anxiety going on. Last night was our 4th night on Hannah’s sleep plan and it was our daughter’s second night in her room by herself. My daughter has slept a minimum of 10 hours straight uninterrupted ALL 4 NIGHTS she’s been on this plan. We’ve of course had to stay consistent and had 2 nights that were a little bumpy putting her to bed but overall she has adapted beautifully and is sleeping more than she has since she was a newborn and we have not had to just let her scream herself to sleep every night which is something I was not ok with!! I cannot say enough great things about Hannah and the work she does. She’s passionate about it and has followed up with encouragement and answered extra questions. She truly was a miracle when we needed one the most. I highly highly recommend having a session with Hannah if you’re struggling to get your little one down for bed or naps or want to plan in advance for your newborn. I will be putting these tips to work when I have a second child as well!!

    5 star review  Our baby was a champion sleeper until she hit about 4 months and an ear infection coincided with a sleep regression which coincided with crawling and another regression... We finally turned to Hannah when our daughter was 6 months old and thank goodness we did! Hannah's schedule and tips really did the trick for us. Within just over a week our little girl is napping and sleeping like a champ again. And since she's getting such good rest, when our little girl is awake she is so much more cheerful and engaged. We are so thankful for Hannah's help.

    5 star review  Somewhere in a galaxy far far away, exists a place where babies sleep 12 hours at night, and 2-3 naps during the day...in their crib! Some parents and babies find this place on their own, and that is fantastic. For a long long time my husband and I (I am using hubbys FB page) heard about this place, but it never existed for us. From about 4-5 months old, our daughter Emma had an 'okay' nighttime sleep routine (with us just winging it as first time parents), but at 5.5 months she flipped her little switch and decided to heck with sleep. Her daytime naps have ALWAYS been a challenge for us, she was a serial cat napper and needed to be held most of the time just to get in 20-30 minutes of much needed shut eye. Although she is a happy baby, she seemed routinely tired throughout her days. After 6.5 mon, we were back to being awake every few hours during the night to feed her (since that is all we knew to do) and/or rock her with her pacifier with hopes of getting another couple hours sleep before we do the whole thing all over again...just to start the day with a overtired baby and hold her for her cat naps all day. I kept telling myself it's a phase (growth spurt/ teething/ etc. etc. etc.) she will go back to her better nights, but it only got worse. Almost like never ending newborn status. My husband and I were beyond exhausted, and pretty much just going through the motions of life every day. I finally decided to look into sleep training. "Sleep training" can be a scary word when you don't know what it means or when misused. Often times there are assumptions or judgy mommy blogs to warn against it or that it doesn't work. Also..it can be hard to ask for help as a parent, because often times us (especially mommies) are our own worse critics thinking we have to know and do everything right, and the thought of asking for help can feel like you've failed. However, in reality, you are being proactive to help your baby. Please do yourself, your partner and your baby a favor and ignore all of the assumptions and contact Hannah. You need the right sleep consultant to guide you through this delicate process. Honestly, I initially reached out to about five different sleep consultants. Not only was Hannah well accredited and the first to get back to me, but she scheduled our consultation that same day, then followed up with me after in case there were any other questions. All other companies took a couple days to respond, and when you are sleep deprived parent, a couple days seems like weeks. To say it's a game changer is an understatement, it was truly life changing for us. I knew right away during our initial consultation (when Hannah finished my sentences for me) that she was the right fix for us. It was like she had been watching us for the past month because she knew the problems (and solution) with barely any information from me. One of many things I learned from Hannah is babies are always evolving and changing, therefore we have to do the same as parents. What worked for Emma at 4 months was not working for her at 6, and so on. Hannah gives you the tools for current and future milestones so you feel confident moving forward. We did remote services and took advantage of the text support (HIGHLY recommend). My first thought reading 'remote services' was how could a consultant do all this when she's not next to us and in another state? Well, she might as well have been next to us! Hannah was there with us every step of the way to answer our questions, reassure us, and fine tune as we went through the process. We even added grandma to the group text for guidance on Grammy daycare day! Hannah sent us our sleep assessment (WOW - eye opening) in just a couple days and then we decided when to start the week of training. Night 1 = Emma slept 9 hours uninterrupted, Night 2 = she slept 12 hours uninterrupted, and so on. Over just 7 days of consistent routine and guidance from Hannah, Emma is sleeping through the night, and down for 2-3 naps a day. She goes to sleep on her own, in her crib, no tears... yes it is possible. There were some tears during the initial change of her routine (old routine = we were doing EVERYTHING wrong) but her tears never went unanswered, she knew mommy and daddy (or grandma's) were always nearby and there for wake time to love and smooch and squeeze her to pieces. To watch such a positive transformation is nothing short of amazing, each day we watched in awe as our little girl exceled and got the sleep that all tiny humans crave and need. . For my husband and I: It has allowed us to be better happier parents. We understand our baby more and what she needs when she needs it. We wake not exhausted. We have an idea of how each day will go so we can plan accordingly and it's not a roll of the dice, which allows us sanity. We have dinner together, watch a show together, sleep together (at same time in same bed!), little things you sometimes take for granted. It is still seems odd at times to wrap my head around Emma needing and actually getting this much sleep, and not having this tiny person attached to me all day and night long. But it has become our new normal, and my only regret is not contacting Hannah sooner. My routine baby shower gift from now on = Referral to Hannah...You're welcome mama's! #EmmasDreamTeam #NewNormals #DreamBabySleepConsultant #SleepTrain #HappyBabyHappyMamaHappyFamily

  • 5 star review  Hannah is a miracle worker! My third child was a terrible sleeper. We had gotten in the habit of bouncing him to sleep and putting him in his swing to keep him asleep. By the time he was five months old we were sleep deprived and out nights and days were consumed with bouncing and praying our baby would stay asleep. Hannah answered my millions of questions thoroughly. She is extremely knowledgable. Within days of receiving our sleep assessment and our initial phone call, my baby was falling asleep within minutes on his own and staying asleep! Hallelujah! It's been a month and he is still taking regular naps and sleeps amazingly at night. We have our lives back! I feel like a person again now that I am getting sleep. I cannot praise and thank Hannah enough. She saved our sanity and helped us enjoy our baby instead of dreading his sleep. I cannot recommend her enough!

    5 star review  Supportive, Insightful, and Results-Oriented! Hannah was a blessing. We now have a healthy sleeper and a greater understanding for the science of baby sleep. Hannah came HIGHLY recommended by two different families in our area. Up until Hannah, our 4-month old Gwendolyn was sleeping in an inclined rocker chair. She screamed the instant she was laid flat on her back in her crib, and we thought we might never get to her sleeping flat. Well, after the first few days we had Gwendolyn sleeping on her back in her crib during the day for 3 naps, and on her back in the pack and play in our room at night. She falls asleep for naps often in less than 3 minutes. We learned how to settle her quickly back to sleep when she wakes up. The first few nights and days were not easy, and we were told they would not be easy. The results now speak for themselves. In addition the results we gained, Hannah is just a nice, compassionate person who is excited to help you and very easy to communicate with. Thank you, Hannah!

    5 star review  When we found Hannah I was tired, exhausted and I thought my then 15 months old daughter would never be able to master sleep. She would still wake up several times at night and she would only go back to sleep holding on to one of my fingers in each hand. It had to be me sitting by her bed (nobody else would do) and I had sat there for hours, for every time she would wake up and for every nap she took. Since I am also very sensitive about my children crying I had thought I couldn’t do anything about the situation I was in. Hannah however came up with a customized plan that was suitable for our parenting style. And she provided a lot of support and assistance throughout the whole process. It wasn’t easy but absolutely worth it. After about 5 weeks of working with her my daughter has been consistently sleeping through the night. I am now able to just lay her in bed (following our bedtime routine) and she will go to sleep without shedding a tear. She takes great naps most days and is a happier toddler all around. Hannah was a God send for us! I would recommend any parent struggling with their child’s sleep to give her a call. It will change your life!
