Sleep Consulting With Angela

You're exhausted.  I can help.

I work with babies and children from 4 weeks through 4 years old, on whatever sleep issue you might be having. I take a holistic approach to sleep - looking at sleep environment, naps, bedtime routine, overnight sleep, daily schedule and nutrition - and form an age-appropriate, personalized sleep plan for your child and your family situation. Then over the course of 2 weeks, I support you in implementing the plan by phone, text and email.  I also offer in-home consultations if you would like help, in the comfort of your home, to implement a specific settling technique or sleep training method, assess your baby's sleep environment, or just offer in-person support.

Sleeping baby

"In one sentence, working with Angela has helped us all sleep better!

We appreciated Angela from our first call with her, when we went over our struggles with getting our baby to sleep through the night. She took the time to understand our specific situation (unlike another consultant we chatted with, who just recited her programs to us--no, thank you!). 

In our work together, Angela gave us research-backed strategies to help our baby sleep, which included giving us advice for how to get him to eat a greater variety of foods. I was a huge fan of this, as it's important to me that he gets color and variety from an early age. 

Implementing our sleep plan was a bit daunting but Angela guided us through it with patience. Once we started though, we all got the hang of it fairly quickly. Angela followed up with us over a few weeks to make sure all our questions were answered, which I particularly appreciate as someone who has a lot of questions!

One thing about Angela's process that was such a relief was that she sent us typed notes from all our calls. As an overstretched parent, it was just so amazing to have something done for you. 

Our baby now sleeps through the night and he knows how to settle himself if he wakes up. Moreover, we feel confident we know how to teach him to self-soothe to sleep even as interruptions inevitably occur (due to travel, colds, etc.).

The final cherry on top to all this is that now that we've caught up on sleep, we're less zombie'd out...we don't just zone out to tv every night but talk or read--things that fill our cups individually and as a couple so that we can be better parents for our baby."

"We contacted Angela when our family was at a breaking point: each night felt like facing a battle--both exhausting and terrifying. Our 5 month old was waking up three times per night and staying awake for 1-2 hours with each wake-up. Angela's thorough and detail-oriented but focused intake enabled us the chance to reflect on what we've been doing and gain insight into how our behavioral patterns were feeding into our baby's patterns. Angela took the time to understand our parenting style and our values before compiling a plan that felt comprehensive, concrete, and most of all, feasible! Just having a written plan in black and white was so helpful in the middle of an endless night when minutes feel so long and the fuses are short.
She also had very helpful insight into what we could do during the day to get our daughter to nap better and ultimately to sleep better at night. And her 24-hour schedule was a godsend that really helped our nanny navigate the days. She kept us on the right track by checking in and helping us to navigate unforeseen challenges, including on the weekends.
After a week of following Angela's plan, our baby was waking up once, napping more consistently, and we felt like tired humans rather than zombies. Thank you, Angela!!!"

"Tonight as I put our almost 5 month old baby girl down in her crib for bedtime, she smiled at me. For the last several days this is how she drifts off to naps and nightly. Two and a half weeks ago, sleep was a lot different for us. We were waking up every hour and a half all night long. Having sleep trained our 6 year old son, we knew what it entailed. Angela was kind and supportive from the first time talking. She gave us a detailed plan with steps and "what to do if this happens" scenarios. She told us she'd be around the first night, to stay in contact and keep her updated. She was quick to respond to questions. Not only did she help us sleep train our baby, she also help us put baby on a schedule including feeding times. This was a game changer. Before Angela our baby was just snacking all day and night. Now she has solid full feeds during the day and sleeps through the night. We wanted to work on naps and bedtime simultaneously. The naps were hard. Even when I started feeling like I couldn't do it, Angela would encourage that consistency is key. On the last day of working with Angela, our baby figured it out.  We highly recommend Angela for any families considering sleep training. It's one of the best things you can give your baby, the gift of sleep."
