Sleep Consultant for Infants & Toddlers
Exhale and let me help you and your family catch some zzz's
I bring the evidence from infant sleep studies, and the humility of a mom who has been there to offer effective solutions.
When I work with a family to address their sleep needs, I enter the “No Judgment Zone”. Infant sleep conversations can be loaded with ideology, opinions, and misinformation, none of which are helpful to exhausted parents, or to help babies sleep. All I require is that you as parents are ready to commit to the plan of action we create together.
Why hire a sleep consultant?
Feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and longing for sleep?
Unsure of what normal sleep patterns are for your baby?
Does everybody have an opinion about baby's sleep?
Why work with a sleep consultant?
I want you to have realistic expectations. The truth is: I am not the one who will help your family sleep better. You are.
As your sleep consultant I:
If parents do not follow the consultant's sleep plan, the success rate will diminish significantly. So my goal is to prepare you before, during, and after ‘Go Live’ for success!
Restore your family's sleep with Infant Sleep Packages:
When searching for a sleep consultant for our baby, we knew we needed a person who could tailor a program to meet our needs. We don’t have a “one size fits all” type of baby and didn’t want a “one size fits most” approach. We wanted an ACTUAL, consistent person we could talk with who would have an understanding of us as a family. We also didn’t want to be limited by the type of communication (only emails, only online chat, etc) our sleep consultant program may have.
We found Sarah with the Family Cradle and could not be happier with our experience. Sarah came and met with us and our baby to understand our preferences, pain points, and goals to help our little one sleep. Multiple night time wakings happened nightly at >7months and short naps as well as having to rock our baby to sleep left us exhausted and frustrated. Sarah helped us through every single step.
The result: on average, our baby sleeps through the night. Our baby is put down awake and has learned how to fall asleep on their own. It took time, dedication, and communication but it was worth it. Sarah has provided us with the tools we need to help our child for the times there is disrupted sleep (teething, sickness, etc). This experience has enabled us to regain our sense of selves to in turn, be a better parent for our child. We also believe our little one is more well rested and has learned skills to help long term.
We highly recommended Sarah and strongly encourage anyone considering sleep consultation for their child/children to reach out to her!

As a second time mom I thought I knew it all, until I realized I didn’t. Working with The Family Cradle has been an amazing experience and I am learning new things every time we talk. Sarah is helping not only with tips and tricks, but also resources for my own mental health.
I am going back to work next month and we are currently working on a personalized sleep schedule for the baby, that will help me take care of him while working from home and juggling multiple calls per day.
We are finishing up the infant massage class too and I am loving these times together. I am learning vital techniques to help my baby and spending time bonding with him.
I would recommend The Family Cradle to every new mom, because it provides the support so many of us are missing during the so called fourth trimester.
I cannot give enough praise to Sarah. She has helped my family become closer and happier than I could have imagined. You can't put a price on that. Every parent should have Sarah's number on speed dial. Do yourself a favor, give Sarah a call.
