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 2 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 expertise, I then tried different sleep techniques. At one point I spent weeks studying and journaling Brianna’s sleep habits, as if I was back in nursing school. I tried different methods and tweaked things until Ta-Da! She was sleeping through the night. With my second baby, I had all this knowledge, and have learned so many tricks. Getting her to sleep was a breeze.

If you have already looked through my site and are still having trouble getting your baby to sleep, please take a look at my Baby Sleep Consulting Packages. Every baby is unique and has his or her own personality and temperament. What works for one baby, may not work for another. That is why, besides the wealth of information on my site, I also offer personal sleep consultations.
