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.

 Certified Sensitive Sleep Consultant

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  I met Hannah at a Q and A session she did at a mom group. I just want to thank Hannah for her ever so helpful tips! I was an emotional mess last week. 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 an absolute life-saver for our family! At about the 4 month mark, our daughter had a major sleep regression and was waking 3-4 times a night and napping very little during the day. I was anxious about her weight and didn't know when or how it would be appropriate to wean her off of her night feedings. Hannah stepped in and offered a WEALTH of knowledge and compassion! Within a short 2-hour in home session, our daughter was napping peacefully and my husband and I were left with the knowledge and resources to keep the healthy sleep habits going. We highly recommend working with Hannah!

    positive review  At 4.5 months old, my son would only be nursed or rocked to sleep for naps and at bedtime. His naps only lasted 30 minutes max. After working with Hannah and Kate in an online workshop, Will now falls asleep on his own and takes full naps! I was so relieved when he accomplished his first 2.5 hour nap. I am so thankful for A to Z Sleep Solutions. I felt so comfortable and supported through the entire process, and I knew my son was in safe and capable hands. He is so much happier throughout the day because he is getting the sleep he needs. My husband and I finally have our nights back and I can finally get chores and relaxing done during the day. Thank you, Hannah and Kate!

  • 5 star review  Hannah was a life saver for us! At 9 months old my son was only taking 30 minute naps and sleeping max 2 hour stretches at night. The very first day we implemented our personalized plan, our son slept through the night. Within a very short period of time our son was like a new baby, and we were finally getting some rest and a full nights sleep. I’m now 9 months pregnant with baby #2 and we will be using Hannah as soon as we can to ensure our LO gets off to the best start! Can’t recommend Hannah enough!

    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!!

    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 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  Honestly, to the ladies that suggested Hannah to usTHANK YOU, thank you, thank you! Life has already changed dramatically in the few short days we've been working with her! If you are sleep deprived, at your wits end, exhausted, just don't know what do, at least do the consultation! Seriously! Our little one was up every 15-45 mins at night for almost a month! Sometimes going all day with only a 20 minute nap under her belt. Nighttime was the most stressful time of day for us our other kiddos suffered because we were so tired in the morning and by mid afternoon, they weren't getting enough attention, my little guy started acting out. It was sheer chaos but this is our 3rd full day implementing Hannah ' s plan and EVERYONE is happier. The only mistake we made regarding hiring a sleep coach was waiting!

My son was waking up 4-5 times a night and in less than a few days he was sleeping 11-12 hours a night! Hannah was also extremely knowledgable about his diet and answered all of my questions! I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone who is struggling with their childs sleep!

  • 5 star review  I reached out to Hannah after my daughter hit the 4 month sleep regression in November. She became dependent on me to help her fall asleep and stay asleep for naps and nighttime sleep. It was taking me away from interacting with my 2 ½ year old and left me with absolutely no “alone” time. I started feeling desperate, anxious, and resentful living on such little sleep and with no improvement in sight. I was lucky enough to have met Hannah at a breastfeeding mothers support group in October, so I reached out to her after a particularly awful day. We began talking and soon decided to start a sleep training program tailored to me and my baby. After reading through the instructions, I was honestly pretty skeptical and unsure if I could follow through. The first couple of days we tried the sleep training we were inconsistent and I nearly gave up. However, my husband and I talked at length with Hannah, who reassured us and made us feel comfortable with the plan. With everyone finally on board, we jumped into the program and saw improvements within a week. I began to see that in order to be a good mother, I needed to lead and set the limits and expectations for my children’s sleep. Instead of letting the tiny humans dictate when/how they slept, I was finally acting like their mother who provided them with healthy sleeping habits. I quickly began to notice a change in my baby’s disposition once her sleep consolidated. She was happy, inquisitive, bright, and eager to learn new skills. Once the holidays hit, her sleep derailed slightly due to teething and visiting family. But since she had a sturdy sleep foundation to fall back on, she is back to “sleeping like a baby”. I feel so grateful to Hannah for her advice, coaching, and faith that I could see this process through to its conclusion.

    5 star review  Hannah gave me confidence and brought peace where chaos ensued. My 1st baby, easiest infant ever, slept through the night by 4 months. My daughter is a whole new ballgame - very strong willed, attached to my hip/boob and very loud relentless crier/screamer. ... 2 months back fron maternity leave, i got a new job. I was exhausted and losing my sanity being up every 2 hours like clock work. None of my go-to tricks or plans were working. I was introduced to Hannah, and realized I needed help and guidance. The ROI was tenfold. She knew what to expect and anticipated everything exactly. She trained ME so i could train my daughter and set her/us up for successful sleeping independently. She gave me a lot of details and plans, but her one on one support - texting / email, etc is what really differentiated this experience for me. Prior to meeting with Hannah, i met with a doula who also considered herself an infant sleep expert and told me nothing new. It was a waste. My daughter is EBF, no formula or solids when we started. She was above average weight so we knew it was possible. Babies CAN successfully sleep through the night if they are nursing. She slept in our room, and coslept or pack n play next to me. In less than a week, my daughter went from 2 feedings to 1, to NONE. I’m still in shock as i write this. Hannah continues to support us on our sleep and independence journey, and I’m extremely grateful. �

    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!

  • 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 can't thank Hannah enough for helping us. Our son just turned one and for the last year he has been a horrible napper and never slept through the night (once after 6 month shots, but that was a fluke) he would always wake 10 plus times a night and I would have to cosleep and nurse him for half the night just so I could sleep for a few hours. I became angry and depressed. I felt like I never bonded with my son and distanced myself emotionally from him. It took 1 day working with Hannah to change that. By day 5 my son slept through the night! 6pm-7am! My son is happier, he's eating better, and developmentally he's already changed so much in just a week! (Letting me read him books, wanting to try to walk, actually playing with toys and not eating them) Hannah talked to me about everything! Nutrition, routines, breastfeeding, how sleep cycles work, and loads of encouragement. I thought "Sleep training" would make me even more exhausted, thinking I'd have to stay up trying to work with my son, that's not the case. It was easy! And fast! I now have this beautiful relationship with my happy boy. I couldn't be more blessed to have worked with Hannah. ��

  • 5 star review  Hannah was absolutely AMAZING! My son was just over 8 months old and wouldn't go to sleep without being bounced or rocked for at least 30 min and still would only sleep a max of 3 hr stretch. By day 3 he was putting himself to sleep and only waking up once at night. After day 5 he was sleeping a solid 12 hrs at night and actually had an amazing nap schedule! We were all much happier ! So grateful for all she did for us !!!

    5 star review  I was SO nervous and hesitant to "hire a sleep coach" but I also felt like I tried everything, read every book and online article & felt that if I did not get SOME sleep I was going to go crazy. We decided to hire Hannah after our baby girl was waking every 45 min- 2 hours for months, with a baby that would only sleep right next to me, and again nothing seem to work. Hannah was so great, she took so much time to listen to our story, understand our parenting "style", and learn about our babe's unique personality so then set up a personalized sleep plan. Hannah brought so much great insight about setting up healthy sleep patterns for our babe from her personalized plan that we implemented right away. It has now been 2 months, and even with sickness, traveling, and teething during the past 2 months we are in a MUCH better place with her sleep. She is going to sleep confidently in her crib for bedtime and naps, and overall much more happy and rested during the day. Like I said, I couldn't have been any more of a sceptic of "sleep trainers" but here is how I feel now- people hire professionals to help with successful lactation/feeding journeys with their babies, why is it so taboo then to hire a professional to help set up healthy sleep habits? Sleep (and mamas sanity) are just as important as nutrition, in my opinion! Also, I was SOOOO nervous about any crying that went along with sleep training as I thought I would totally ruin my baby, but Hannah provided such a great, gentle plan that I am here to say our babe is one HAPPY and thriving little one and I just can't thank Hannah enough!!

    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.
