Kimberly’s BabyZzz Story
In 2016, as a first-time mom whose husband left for work at 4 AM, I was content taking what sleep we were getting because I didn’t know any different. Starting our day at 4:30 AM and us all being cranky and overtired before dinner even rolled around seemed “par for the course.” It wasn’t until we got pregnant with our second that I realized that our then 2-and-a-half-year-old requiring us to fall asleep in his bed with him only to have him crawl into bed with us every hour after that wasn’t going to cut it. Needless to say, we did it differently with our second and it changed our lives, our relationship, family dynamic and ultimately is the reason I decided to become a Certified Sleep Consultant! Understanding the biological changes that occur within the first few months and creating a healthy foundation really paved the way for implementing healthy boundaries and limits around sleep when the time came to sleep train our daughter. I want nothing more than to meet families where they are, set them up for success and support them through their journey as unique as their child.
My educational background in the Behavioral Sciences (Sociology, Psychology and Anthropology) has shaped my philosophies to be very connection and relationship based while my background in early childhood education has given me an in-depth understanding of what respectfully setting limits and boundaries can positively do for a child’s sense of security and self. I’ve loved being able to apply those experiences to the research around sleep and the techniques from a number of leading pediatric sleep researchers to equip families with the knowledge necessary to help their babies get the rest they need at the pace at which they are comfortable with. With emotional attachment in mind, I hope to help families see and experience sleep training as a process in which a sleep coach and family work as a team in order to help littles fall asleep and stay asleep independently to achieve consolidated, restorative sleep for everyone.
