Hi,  I'm Violet

When my daughter Brianna was born, I was overjoyed with the idea of being a new mom. She was perfect in every way. Things quickly took a turn when she wasn’t sleeping at all at night.

 

She was literally up all night wanting to be held, rocked, or nursed back to sleep. This went on for almost a year, and I hadn’t slept more than a two hour stretch since she was born. I thought I was going insane!

 

I was constantly anxious about bedtime, and dreaded the night time hours. I became exhausted, frustrated, and was at my wits end. I knew I had to do something.

 

I started doing tons and tons of research in the realm of pediatric sleep. I studied every single sleep training method, and read every sleep book and program out there. I relied on my nursing knowledge of sleep cycles, disturbances, and how sleep works. I also made many phone calls to our amazing pediatrician.

 

With all of this knowledge, I then tried different sleep techniques, journaled, and tweaked things until… Ta-Da! She was sleeping through the night. The best part, I didn’t have to resort to “Cry it Out”!

 

Getting my second baby to sleep was a breeze and before I could blink, I was helping other parents all over the world.
