H ow I got started
When I was pregnant, I always said that I would never sleep train my baby. I thought all sleep training was the same and involved a lot of crying and forcing very young babies to sleep through the night. After I brought my baby girl, Zoë, home from the hospital I was totally in love, but totally sleep deprived. After a week of little to no sleep, I started devouring research on baby sleep and putting all of the tips I read about into practice. Within one week, both my sleep and Zoë's sleep had transformed. Not only was she sleeping well at night, she was napping and was no longer fussy at any point in the day. I didn't realize at first, but every tip I was following was actually gentle sleep training. Because of how life-changing these tips were, I started posting videos on TikTok to help other new moms and I quickly gained a following. After countless moms asked if I offered services, I decided to become certified in pediatric sleep using gentle methods of sleep training.
