I’m Emma and I’m a mom of two. Being a first time mom, I had this idea in my head of how soundly my baby would sleep – boy was I wrong!
My daughter, Olivia, was born the first day of lockdown in 2020. I was home more than usual and I didn’t mind rocking her to sleep, letting her nap in my arms, or rushing to her in the middle of the night to feed.
With a background as a nurse, working a night shift was no stranger to me, but having my baby up every couple of hours was taking a toll on me. When the sleepless nights and short naps started getting worse and the generic advice from friends and online wasn’t working, I knew I needed some help. That’s when I reached out to Sasha to help guide me through a gentle approach to sleep training. Three days later, my daughter was sleeping through the night and napping consistently.
Fast forward to 2021 and my son, Leo, was born completing our family. We are all happy, well rested and it has enabled me to fully enjoy motherhood.
Helping someone is a privilege and is why I pursued a career in nursing. Helping families have a good night’s sleep is that same rewarding feeling to me.

I’ve heard so many wonderful mamas speak and write about the loneliness of being a parent, and it definitely seems that we all feel it at one time or another. Having a new baby is a huge transition.Read More
I couldn’t possibly count the number of times I’ve heard parents describe their babies and toddlers as “bad” sleepers over the years. Not only in my professional life, but also just moving through the world as a parent. And it is definitely true that some kids aren’t currently great sleepers. But, there’s a big difference between a child having less than stellar sleep habits and being an innately “bad” sleeper.Read More
Ok. So you've got this sleeping thing down. Baby is doing a solid 10-12 hours at night, naps are long enough for you to shower AND eat lunch. It's amazing!
But then you have visitors. Your mom, or your partner's dad, your sister-in- law and her kids. Or you are the one visiting Aunt Mary in Arizona. How do you make sure that all your hard work doesn't go down the drain?!Read More
