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.

My name is Grace Lindvall. I am a mom of 3 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.

Hi I’m Savanna! I’m a former teacher turned twin boy mom that loves helping people. Although sleep is natural and biologically wired into us, it doesn’t mean that it always comes easy. There’s more to it than just wake windows and sleepy cues. And when you’re already sleep deprived, it can be hard to figure out what else baby needs. As someone who loves sleep (seriously ask my family), I am passionate about helping families figure out a solution that fits their needs and that they’re comfortable with.

If you asked me what I wanted to be when I was four years old it was never a ballerina dancer or astronaut. It was always a mother. I had tons of baby dolls and spent my days lovingly feeding and rocking them. The drive to become a mother never left me through college and into my early years of searching for a career. Even though I always gave it my all, nothing ever felt right or truly fulfilled me. In 2019 my dreams finally came true and my husband and I welcomed our first son. Finally I felt like I had a purpose and i dived into motherhood head first. But unfortunately, I quickly realized that all my practicing as a 4 year old with my baby dolls had not prepared me for the real thing, especially when it came to sleep. One very late and desperate night I found Hannah and she gave me my sleep and sanity back. Years later she also helped me with my daughter.
While I was working with Hannah on my children’s sleep I developed a passion for pediatric sleep. For the first time I could see myself as more than a stay at home mom. I never wanted another mother to feel as I did during the depths of sleep depravation. My family is now living in Massachusetts on Cape Cod and I am so incredibly privileged to belong to a community that has many services to help new parents. Our greatest goal is the prevention of postpartum mood disorders. I am so excited to add my services and help my community in anyway that I can.
Although sleep is a biological necessity, that does not mean that it comes easy to every baby. There are so many pieces of the puzzle that need to be in place for sleep to come together. Expecting new and sleep deprived parents to figure this all out on their own is simply impossible. It is my hope that I can be a lighthouse for parents during the dark and seemingly endless nights and help them achieve all their goals.
Hannah was really amazing when my little boy was born! He's such a great sleeper during day and night because of her helpful tips when he was first born 🙂 highly recommend! Thank you do much Hannah xx

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

A yo Z Sleep Solutions is amazing and 110% knows their stuff! My girl wasn’t the best napper so i did the Naps 101 program. With Their guidance, within a few short days my 8 month old was putting herself to sleep and sleeping for 1-2+ hours for naps instead of her usual 30-45 minutes. In turn it helped improve her night sleep as well! I also learned so much about baby sleep in general. So now i feel confident about getting my girl to sleep for naps and bedtime and getting her to sleep isn’t a big ordeal anymore, just a simple routine and done! I fully recommend using A to Z Sleep Solutions for any of their programs!

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.

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. ��

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!!

My 4th child, almost 17 months, was waking as many as 6 times every night. She would not go to sleep on her own, and would not soothe herself back to sleep when she would wake. She would be full-of-energy as late as 10 or 11pm and was resisting her nap. None of my kids were good sleepers as infants/toddlers and my 7 year old still wakes every night. After 9 years of sleepless nights I just couldn't do it anymore! Having 3 other kids (9,7 & 5), it is tough to keep a tight schedule, but I was determined to get my LO in a routine. I really needed someone to outline the appropriate schedule for my child, along with an explanation as to why this schedule was important, and to hold me accountable for keeping my LO (and myself) on track. Thankfully, Kelsey Dressely @ Dream Baby was there to help me. On the 1st day my LO literally stood in her crib for a total of 6 hours between naps and bedtime, even dozing off from time-to-time, eventually falling asleep about 10pm. Day 2 was sitting and by day 3 she was letting me tuck her in. Each day she cried a little less. It's been 2 1/2 weeks and she now takes 2 naps and puts herself to sleep. She still wakes multiple times at night but is able to soothe herself back to sleep quickly. I feel like I have so much more time in my day! I wish I would have had Dream Baby for my other 3 children and would highly recommend them to anyone struggling to get their little ones to sleep!

After having Hannah’s coaching and overnight stay, my LO is now sleeping from 630-7a with one wake up to feed & we are only on day4! I anticipate she’ll be sleeping until wakeup within the next day or so based on her tremendous progress! She is nearly 5 months and was waking an hour after being put down and then 4-6 times overnight and often taking a bottle up to 3 times overnight and daytime naps were brief and unpleasant for her and we had a very overtired cranky baby (& Mommy Lol) before working with Hannah. I haven’t slept this well since she was born and neither has my baby! Very grateful for the coaching, guidance and support - we now have a happier family all around. So worth it.

Samantha was such a pleasure to work with. We’ve struggled with our daughter’s sleep from the beginning. (She’s 22 months.) I’ve read books and Pinterest articles and talked to two pediatricians. But it wasn’t until Samantha gave us the tools and then empowered us to use them properly that we got her sleeping through the night. I’m so grateful we found Samantha and A to Z Sleep Solutions.

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

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 �

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

Hannah hosted a private workshop for us and the wisdom, care and passion flowing out of her was a gift to experience! There is so much to know and figure out for you and your little one, it’s really not a one size fits all. Hannah will help you find your fit. Highly recommend!

Our son tricked us early on, he was only up 1-2 times a night to nurse and then right back down to sleep. Around 5 months of age, things shifted and we began the nighttime battle. Bedtime was taking 1-2 hours and he was up every hour or two all night. Within the week we worked with Kelsey Dressely we have a boy sleeping 11-12 hours a night, only taking a few minutes to fall asleep, and taking two naps at the exact same time every day, this was a truly life changing experience!! Highly recommend it.

Hannah is simply amazing! So glad we hired her for support. We signed up for her Email & text support (worth every penny by the way) when our baby was going through the infamous 10 month sleep regression.. on top of the sleep regression we were in middle of a big move from Asia back to the States, visiting families and traveling all over the place.. and came a couple sicknesses so we were just in a giant mess. So I made it a personal goal to give our baby the gift of good independent sleep by her 1st birthday and timing couldn't have been more perfect! She helped my goal become a reality and by her 1st birthday she was sleeping through the night on her own and now naps on schedule too. Would hire her again in a heartbeat should any new issues arise but what I learned from her is SO valuable and gave me a new sense of confidence as a parent. Can't thank her enough!

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.

Hannah is a lifesaver. We were battling some serious nap and sleep issues with our 8 month old daughter and were at a complete loss. We tried all the tricks, drove around town while she napped in the car, held her for naps, fought bedtime, went crazy basically. She was an unhappy, overtired baby and none of us enjoyed the days. And dealing with postpartum depression made it even worse all around. Hannah provided support and encouragement, as well as a detailed analysis of our baby's sleep troubles. Within a day we saw immediate improvement. Evelyn overnight became a happier baby and began to nap wonderfully. We almost thought it was too good to be true. Hannah provided us with simple suggestions and a range of options to fit our family's style and comfort level. Is every day perfect with sleep? Of course not, that's not realistic! But we have a plan to help provide Evelyn the best possible situation for healthy sleep and we know what to do to help her get back on track for those days that don't go so well. Totally recommend Hannah and she is worth every penny!

I implemented Hannah’s advice at 15 weeks and should’ve started sooner. Up to that point he was waking and crying every 2 hours, and that left me crying all day. After 3-4 rough nights getting into a new routine, my baby is an awesome sleeper and never takes longer than 15 minutes for his bedtime routine and tuck in. He’s now 2 and tells me he loves me and “night night” when he lays down.

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!

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. �

My daughter is 14 months old and is as strong-willed as they come. Since she was 4 months old she coslept with me as well as dream fed but once she turned 12 months I knew we had to make a change because of all the broken sleep we got sleeping together. Hannah was truly a blessing and couldn't have come at a better time. I did not believe in the cry out method so Hannah put together a "gentle plan," that eased our little one into the night time sleep process. By night 2 our daughter fell asleep on her own and by night 3 she slept a full 12 hours. After her night time sleep consolidated I felt like a new woman because I was sleeping again and she wasn't cranky during the day because she had a great night sleep. We can't thank you enough Hannah for helping us teach our daughter what good sleep is!
