Hi, I'm Erin!
My journey began as a full-time nanny. I dealt with nap troubles during the day for ten years, with children of all ages. I had the parents I worked with coming to me often, asking for advice (or just to vent!) on how to help their children sleep better at night.
I had already been dealing with all of the nap troubles on my own and finding what worked for each child. So I felt that I had enough tips to at least attempt to help these sleep deprived parents when they asked. I found that I enjoyed trying to help these parents with sleep issues and wanted to do more. So I started taking even more of an interest in the science behind sleep for children and truly came to love the topic and helping the families.
I soon realized I could reach more families with what I knew about sleep when I found some certification programs. It was then that I found the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting certification program and started this new chapter hoping to help all of you!
