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.

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!

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.
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.

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.

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!
They really helped my 2 daughters (3.5 yrs and an 8 month old). Both sleep through the night now! Life changing.

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.

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!

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.

We met Hannah at a meet up where she did a Q&A session. Our almost 3 year old was taking 1mg of melatonin every night to make him sleepy so he would actually go to bed at a reasonable hour. We were also having to lay with him in bed until he fell asleep. After implementing her suggestions we were able to remove the melatonin from his routine and he now naps and goes to bed (falls asleep) ON HIS OWN! It's not a 100% black and white type thing and some days the now 3 year old takes longer than others to fall asleep. But we try to be as consistent as possible and within a couple weeks along with some gentle guidance and support we have a whole new (and much shorter) nightly routine! I love that my son is learning to be independent in all areas and I'm glad he feels comfortable and safe enough to fall asleep on his own now! They grow up so fast! �

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

I called A to Z Sleep Solutions out of desperation. Our 16 week old baby wouldn't nap and I was exhausted. Hannah came into our home for 4 hours and the next day, our baby took 3 amazing naps. Then that night, he slept 12 hours!! He's continued this everyday since. It's so worth it! Hannah is amazing and so supportive! We've been sleeping for 5 weeks now...all thanks to Hannah!!
August 26, 2018
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!

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 !!!
July 12, 2016
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!

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

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!
January 13, 2016
Hannah saved us!! We had 5 month old twin boys, and we were struggling so much with naps and night time, and I had no idea how to get them on the same schedule. Hannah will work with any parenting style, and really fits her plan into each families preferences. She is patient, responsive, and extremely encouraging. Even after 2 days of implementing her plan, we saw huge improvements in our babies sleep! We are now a month in to using her plan, and we are on a regular and consistent schedule, and they are happier babies! They sleep so great now. We are grateful for Hannah and her care for our family!

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.

Of all people, my husband told me about hiring a sleep consultant when our LO was only 4 months. I was hesitant but by 6 months I was worn out and gave in. And so glad I did. Hannah was one of the bet decisions we have ever made! My daughter would only sleep on me whether it was for naps or bedtime. I would have to stand and rock her and sometimes that would take hours and then once she would fall asleep she would wake back up 30 minutes later. Also, at night she was up every hour on the hour. Around midnight one of those nights I contacted Hannah and received a quick response. The next day we had a phone consult and within a few days we were already starting the sleep training. I chose to have Hannah come over the first night. I wanted to make sure I was doing everything right and also wanted the support of someone who had the knowledge behind all of this. After the week of text messages all day guiding me and helping me understand my baby's schedule and why we were doing what we did each day my 6 month old is actually sleeping in a crib and not on me!!!! She takes three naps a day religiously and sleeps from 7p-7:30a.. I feed her once to twice a night. I'll take that any day over the hourly feeds we were doing prior to Hannah. After one night with Hannah I was very hopefully and by the end of the first week I was overly excited to know my baby is getting the proper sleep she needs and that this mama could enjoy taking a shower again. 🙂 I highly recommend Dream Baby Sleep Consultants.

Hannah is a lifesaver! She is incredibly knowledgeable and so encouraging. My four month old baby boy was waking up several times a night and would only take one or two 10-15 minute naps a day. I had tried everything and was completely exhausted. Hannah helped me get Baby on a schedule and he now takes three solid naps a day and only wakes up once a night. A miracle!! It was hard work, but the sleep training I did with Hannah's support was worth every penny and worth the work. Baby is sleeping and happy, which means mom is sleeping and happy! The consultation and week of support Hannah provided was so helpful. I learned so much and felt so supported along the way. She's also so kind and fun to work with. My only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner! I highly recommend her!

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!

I really regret not contacting her sooner. EVERY parent needs Hannah in their lives. My nickname for her is "sleep hero Hannah." Never in a million years did I think my 5mo baby would sleep through the night or even be headed in that direction. Before Hannah, our son was waking up every 1.5-2 hours during the night. We tried every sleeping contraption. He slept in the boppy lounger, in a rock and play, then a dock a tot, and finally as is, in bed with me. I was so desperate for sleep that my husband was kicked out and slept in our guest room. Now, Logan naps during the day and sleeps about 11-12 hours total with one wake during the night *IN HIS OWN CRIB!* My house is clean, I can shower and get completely ready for the day, and most importantly, my husband is back sleeping in our bed. This experience has been life changing and that is no exaggeration. I definitely recommend text support. However, I am now having separation anxiety � Thank you so much Hannah!

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!
