My name is Angela Walsh. I am a Child Sleep Consultant Certified by the Family Sleep Institute, and the founder of Babes in Sleepland. As the mother of four grown children (three boys and a girl), my mission is to help parents like you enjoy every moment … (READ MORE)
As a certified infant and child sleep consultant, my mission at Babes in Sleepland is to help parents experience the profound joys of life with their infant or child, while minimizing the profound disruptions to existing routines and sleep schedules that can sometimes accompany those first few months or years. As a new mom one of the hardest things to deal with is a lack of sleep. When we get the rest we need because we have learned how to get our baby sleeping, we are much better able to cope with such things as infant fussiness or colic.
I have built my practice on the belief that sleep is not a luxury but rather a biological necessity that no baby, child or parent can-or should-do without. Looking back now, as a certified child sleep expert, and remembering the uncertain and exhausting days of having my first baby to the confidence of having my fourth; I can see that sleep deprivation didn't automatically have to come with the territory.
Two decades later, I have both the personal experience and the professional training to help you overcome your own sleep deprivation. Whether you are dealing with new born sleep issues, a child who wakes frequently in the night, or very early in the morning, has trouble staying in bed, is experiencing night mares or night terrors, or you are an expectant mom who just wants to learn how to pre-empt baby sleep problems, I can help you. I'm here to show you how to teach your baby or child to get the sleep s(he) needs and your family craves.
Did you know?
Children do not just outgrow sleep problems. Children who are chronically overtired are cranky, hyperactive and can have difficulty learning.
Is your child showing signs of being overtired?
- Trouble falling asleep at night and naptime
- Frequently waking in the night
- Waking very early in the morning
- Inability to self-soothe
- Clingy, irritable, or fussy throughout the day
- Rubbing their eyes
As a certified infant and child sleep consultant, I can help you alleviate these problems as well as:
- Transitioning from co-sleeping to a crib
- Transitioning from crib to a bed
- Night terrors or nightmares
- I also have experience working with special needs children, as well as children with reflux
