Hi! My name is Chris and I’m a Certified Pediatric Sleep Wise Consultant. I live just north of Boston with my husband, Dan, and two young daughters, Mae and Violet.
What I didn’t realize at the time is all of these life experiences would help shape how I approach motherhood.
I prepared for motherhood in so many ways: researched the best gear, set up the nursery, found a great pediatrician, and read books to help me prepare for this new life.
Faced with the daunting task of finding my new identity, I immediately sought the support of a new moms group. It was during a conversation at this group that our instructor said that sleep training would be the first thing I would teach my baby, it would be challenging, and it would be worth it. I immediately dove in and was excited to learn as much as I could on the subject. Mae and I were both starting this brand new life together and it was up to me to decide what that was going to look like.
I was exhausted and in survival mode, which was difficult for both of us. I tried multiple methods, but wasn’t able to get Violet on a predictable sleep routine until she was 7 months old – and those 7 months felt like an eternity. Filled with trial and error, confusion, and conflicting information, I wished that I had known someone to guide me, to support me so I didn’t feel like I was the only mom going through this, and to get me back to the other side.
The process to become a certified sleep consultant was transformative for me and now I am so thankful to have the ability to guide families through what feels like a complex world of sleep. Getting your child to sleep well doesn’t have to be a confusing, frustrating, emotional process – and often when we’re overly emotional we make decisions we wouldn’t otherwise have. When you are in control of your sleep plan, you make the shift to an organized, supportive approach that will bring your family to a place of peace. This is how I approach my practice, and I am excited to understand where you are and assist with this transition. It would be an honor to help all members of your family feel healthy, whole and rested!
