"Before working with Kristine, my baby didn't nap or fall asleep at night unless I was holding her. Now we're both better rested, happier, and have so much more fun together. "

~S.K. Oregon

Your baby wants to sleep, and so do you. You just lack the tools.

You are a brand new parent who feels overwhelmed because your baby doesn’t get the sleep they need and neither do you…

Maybe, you disagree with your partner about the right way to help your baby sleep well. 

You can see that your newborn seems fussy, uncomfortable and exhausted most of the day.

Your little one wakes up frequently at night, and takes short naps.

And you’ve done research and tried ALL the things, but none of them seem to work. 

If that’s the case, Sleep From The Start is the roadmap you need to gently help your baby get the rest they need for healthy growth and development. 

Hands baby and mum

Are you still trying to deal with sleep challenges using the "old way"?

Co-sleeping
Hiring night nannies so you can sleep
Wearing baby for naps and at night
Letting our child cry alone for hours until they learn to sleep
Accepting sleeplessness as fact of parenthood

Six years ago I checked ALL of the boxes, and I feel your pain.

I read all the books, all the blogs but nothing I tried worked. I asked health care providers, but I couldn’t implement their advice without my baby crying intensely.

My productively screeched to a halt, my mental health began to crumble and my relationship with my husband became strained with the constant battle to achieve just one more minute of sleep.

I kept wondering what I was doing wrong. Were we just broken?

After reaching out for help and teaching our daughter to sleep independently, I became a Sleep Sense Certified Consultant to help families navigate the challenges of sleep with confidence and kindness.

The good news is: you are not alone and your family can heal with empowering information and live coaching support! 

"When our second was born, we knew we needed help to not repeat our mistakes with big brother! Quite honestly, we had no idea what to do. This group has been perfect."

~H.L. Arkansas

As a certified teacher and sleep specialist I have created a quality course guaranteed to:

Save newborn parents time (and tears). Unfortunately, I’ve seen countless parents waste precious time with their newborn they could have enjoyed if they’ve decided to get help sooner rather than later.

Teach you about how sleep works in the Newborn brain & body. Learning the science helps to understand the reasons behind newborn behaviors so you can implement lasting and meaningful change.

Give you choice, options and control. My goal is to empower you with tools that work, and that you feel aligned with.

Inspire: your baby CAN learn – I see it happen every day! Do not underestimate your baby. Your baby is smart and you will learn how to teach her.

Dare To Dream...

Sleep supports physical, intellectual, and emotional newborn development – and they need 15 hours each day!
Now, you can access gentle newborn sleep strategies to teach healthy sleep at your own pace.

If you're thinking, "this sounds amazing, but I'm still not 100% sure this is the right fit for my family..."

Then book a call with me! Let’s see if it will work for you and your family.

NOTE: The acquisition of independent sleep skills is dependent on a number of factors, and I cannot guarantee that your child will be sleeping through the night in 6 weeks. Temperament, age, weight, sleep debt, consistency of routine, among other things, all play a role, and your child may require additional one-on-one services even after following the plan laid out for you in the Newborn Sleep Group. If your family would like additional support, I am happy to offer you a discounted (20% off) Infant Sleep Package to make all your dreams come true.
