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!

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.

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.

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!
Our little one hit a huge sleep regression around 3.5 months. She went from sleeping 6 hour stretches to waking ever 1-2 hours at night. She would cry until she was fed or until I caved and let her sleep in bed with us. After a few weeks of this and trying cry it out unsuccessfully, I thought we would never sleep. My husband and I were skeptical that someone could help us without even meeting us or knowing our baby, but we were desperate. Hannah gave us the tools we needed to help our little one fall asleep on her own with little to no tears. After following Hannah's plan we noticed results within days and now after a few weeks she only wakes once at night to eat. When we hit a little speed bump in her sleeping, we feel confident on how to handle it. This experience has been a blessing and mom, dad and baby are getting better sleep because of it. Worth every penny in my opinion!

I first used Hannah for my toddler when he was around 18m and we were having trouble going from two naps to one. She easily fixed our problem with a few minor tweaks. Then I had my second child who in my mind was the worst sleeper ever. He would wake up multiple times during nap, multiple times at night, and I would have to rock him for an hour to even get him to sleep in the first place. I knew sleep training was hard though and I kept making up excuses on why I didn't want to do it yet. Come seven months later and I was going crazy with a kid who never slept and was always overtired. So I enlisted the help oh Hannah once again. She ensured me that we would have him sleeping in no time and I almost didn't believe her... I mean I can't get him to sleep in under an hour there was no way he was going to sleep on his own. I defiantly had my doubts and if it did work I figured I would be spending my nights listening to him cry and I would probably be crying too. I remember a few days before we started I went and read all Hannah's reviews because surely none of the kids she helped were as bad as mine. Wrong! I loved reading all the success stories and picked a date. The first night he cried 20min, the next nap 9 min and pretty much from then on he was falling asleep completely on his own with no crying. I was shocked!!!!!! In less than 24hrs my horrible sleeper was falling asleep on his own and staying asleep. I'm still in shock. I paid for the week of texting which was amazing, anytime I had an inclining of doubt in the program Hannah was there to encourage me. Within one week my horrible sleeper was sleeping 12hrs at night and napping 3-4hrs during the day. I finally can take a shower in the morning, I started eating breakfast again, and I even get to talk to my hubby at night! I still can't believe it, and I REALLY wish I did it sooner. My entire family is happier now that we all get our rest. Hannah is so amazing- I just can't say enough about her program and most importantly that it actually works.

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!

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!

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

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

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.

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!

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

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 �

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!

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

Thank you for helping me figuring out the missing piece and getting my 7 months old daughter to sleep. She is my 4th and I really thought I had learned all i needed to know on the infant sleep topic. But exhaustion from 6 wake ups a night and unreliable naps brought me to your class. Now she is only waking once a night and napping like a champ! And it didn't involve cry it out. Thank you!!!!
June 5, 2018
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!

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.

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

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

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!!

I highly recommend Hannah's service, our four year old was waking far too early in the morning and disturbing everyone's sleep. We were all feeling tired and grumpy from being woken too early, this especially wasn't fair on his brothers having to go to school with not enough sleep. Hannah gave us a plan which was easy to follow and I'm happy to say our son is now staying in bed until the time we've set for him to get up. Thank you Hannah our family is happier and healthier for it!

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.

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!
