Oh Baby Consulting offers sleep guidance and support for families with children 0-5. Depending on the type of guidance and amount of support your family needs, we offer one-on-one custom plans & coaching and a self-paced online course.

Step 1: Choose your perfect package. If you’re not sure which package to choose or you’d like to connect ahead of time to make sure we are a good fit, book a complimentary discovery call with me.

Step 2: After you purchase a package, you will receive a link to my calendar to book your 60-minute consultation. In the meantime, you will complete an intake questionnaire that will give me all the information I need to create a personalized sleep plan for your family. I will also send you some checklists and other materials to review and work through as you’re waiting to get started.

Step 3: On the date/time you select for our consultation, we will meet on Zoom to review your sleep plan. I will walk you through it, answer any questions you have about it, and make sure you’re feeling clear & confident about next steps.

Step 4: After you pick a start night to begin your plan, your support period will begin! Depending on selected package, you will have access to me via email and/or Voxer messaging. For babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, I will also follow along with your child’s sleep on a digital sleep tracking log that you will fill in daily (it’s super simple – promise!) These support tools are helpful for making sure all your questions are answered and we reach your sleep goals. At the end of the day, my goal is to not only get your family sleeping well, but make sure you feel comfortable, supported, and confident throughout the entire process.

Step 5: CELEBRATE all the sleep that your family is now getting!

Listening to your child cry is really, really hard. But I’ll be 100% honest with you (now & always) that there will likely be some crying during the learning process. There is no perfect formula to ensure zero crying. Crying is one way that babies protest the newness, and while tears are not necessary for sleep training to be successful, they can be a byproduct of habit change.

But even though some tears are inevitable, they are also manageable! I will provide you with a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to sleep training that serves to minimize unnecessary tears by accounting and controlling for the many variables associated with learning to sleep. I will also give you a clear plan for handling the tears that accompany habit change so that you can show up in a consistent and confident way for your baby.

Using my background in child development & infant mental health, I will teach you methods to minimize the crying and support you through the anxiety it may cause you. Many families tell me that the amount of tears they experience on a daily basis after sleep training is far fewer than what they were experiencing before when sleep was a struggle.

These terms refer to the level of interaction and type of response we have when teaching babies to sleep independently. They are also not terms that I use within my practice because I find it incredibly misleading that some sleep training methods are inherently more gentle than others. For some babies, more gradual approaches with lots of interaction actually lead to more crying! Based on your child’s age, temperament, sleep history, and your comfort level, we will create a plan that is both achievable and effective.
Yes! Sleep works symbiotically and what happens during the day can impact night sleep (and vice versa). I look at the whole picture when creating a sleep plan, and you can expect to see improvements across all sleep situations.
YES! Breastfeeding and healthy sleep definitely can co-exist and live in harmony! Sleep training actually enhances the breastfeeding relationship when both mom and baby are well rested. But regardless of how you choose to feed your baby, I am here to help you reach all your sleep goals.
Feeding and sleep certainly go hand-in-hand, but feeding challenges do not preclude children from becoming great sleepers. In my experience, when sleep improves, feeding improves along with it! However, if you have specific concerns about your child’s medical conditions, please speak with your pediatrician first.
I’d love to help your entire family get the sleep you all deserve. I work with children from age 0-5 so if you have multiple struggling sleepers within that age range, let’s get a plan in place for everyone!
While my strategies and guidance are rooted in science and research-backed, success relies heavily on making sure the plan is being fully implemented and consistently maintained. Think of me like your personal trainer: if you commit to the process, follow the plan, and are communicative with me, you can expect to see success. For the families who trust the process and trust me, I have a 100% success rate. It is only when families deviate or “cherry pick” from the plan that they do not see the results they expected.
Oh Baby is unique in that it offers a comprehensive & well-rounded perspective on pediatric sleep and the process of sleep training. My extensive background in child development and infant mental health ensures that I will always take an evidence-based, scientific approach when crafting my services and educating families. I come equipped with an MS in Child Development with special interests in infant mental health & whole family wellness, extensive training + a certification in pediatric sleep, and hold a leadership position within the Association for Professional Sleep Consultants. I strive to offer parents not only expert guidance but also personalized support surrounding sleep struggles. I am constantly keeping up to date on the latest evolutions in the fields of child development, infant mental health, and pediatric sleep science, so your sleep solutions won’t just be tailored to your family, but will be rooted in evidence-based research and practices.
While I can not bill insurance directly, should you choose to use your HSA or FSA funds for my sleep services I can provide you with a detailed invoice and other supporting documentation to submit to your insurance company if needed. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that my services will be eligible for reimbursement.
