Our philosophy is that well-rested children are happier and better able to learn from the world around them; well-rested parents are more patient, and more present for their children; and, well-rested families are healthier, happier, and more able to enjoy each other.
With every skill that your child will learn – be it rolling, crawling, pulling to stand, or even taking solid foods – you will be guiding them, supporting them, and offering love and reassurance all throughout the process. We believe sleep should be treated the same way, with you guiding your child through the course of learning to sleep independently. This is how children learn best.
We are moms – we understand that helping your child through a big change can be overwhelming, and even a little scary. That’s ok – we are here to help you through this process, every step of the way.
I am passionate about children’s sleep. I firmly believe that a well-rested family is a happier, healthier family. I am committed to working with tired parents to help them help their little ones get the healthy rest they need – that means getting amazing, uninterrupted nighttime sleep, and taking proper, restful naps, all within a supportive and guided two-week program!
The tools and knowledge gained through a Master’s Degree in health communications and a Certificate in Infant & Toddler Sleep Consulting have allowed me to help hundreds of families gain amazing, healthy sleep for their children. I also have more than 10 years’ experience in the field of health communications.
Here’s the most important part: I’m a Mom. So, I’ve been there. I am the Mom of an amazing little girl, who wasn’t always such an amazing little sleeper (long before I became a Sleep Consultant!). I have seen, first-hand, the difference that healthy sleep can make to a child and to the entire family unit. When naptimes become easy, bedtimes become joyful, and nights become full of restful sleep, this makes an incredibly positive difference in the overall health, happiness, and well-being of families. Reach out here.
Molly Peardon has Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. She is mom to two precious boys (who are also rockstar sleepers!).
Molly is incredibly passionate about children’s sleep, and loves helping parents get the sleep they deserve. She has experienced first-hand with her own boys how important baby and toddler sleep is, and how key it is to a family’s overall health and happiness that everyone has great, healthy sleep habits. Sleep truly positively impacts a family in so many ways! Molly is thrilled to be bringing that positivity into other families’ lives and sharing the amazing benefits of healthy sleep with as many families as she can!
Lauren holds both a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology.
She has over 10 years of experience working with children, including her roles as a supervising behavioural therapist, and counselor for children with additional needs in-school for the Ministry of Education. Lauren’s favourite and most rewarding role to date has been being a mom to the sweetest little boy.
As a result of her son’s own sleep challenges, Lauren learned early on just how important healthy sleep habits are and the effects her son’s sleep had on her family’s health and well-being. Throughout the journey of achieving her family’s personal sleep goals, Lauren developed a passion for understanding and improving children’s sleep. This experience led her to undergo training to become a paediatric sleep consultant so that she can help other families achieve their personal sleep goals.
Lauren understands and appreciates that every family has their own unique sleep goals, and is really excited for the opportunity to help your family reach yours
Liz is a Nurse Practitioner in her community and enjoys working with children and families from all walks of life.
Liz has always loved a good night’s sleep, but really developed a passion for everything infant sleep since becoming a Mom and working through sleep challenges with her own little one. She understands the toll lack of sleep can have and is eager to help support families on their own unique sleep journey. She’s excited to work with you to achieve your goals!
Kristen has a strong background in education, having completed her BEd at St. Thomas University. Her passion for helping children build strong foundations from a learning perspective allowed her to transition naturally into her role as Behaviour Therapist with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).
Becoming a Mom further emphasized to Kristen how important it is to give children the tools they need to succeed in each aspect of their life, with healthy sleep among those very necessary tools. Between wanting to build good habits for her son and a desire to maintain balance in her family’s own day-to-day life, Kristen quickly recognized the importance of sleep to a family’s overall healthy functioning.
Kristen looks forward to helping you navigate your child’s sleep challenges to ensure you become a well-rested family!
A Note About Tears
Many clients ask us about “Cry it out” – this is not our approach. “Cry it out” is a method of sleep training that is also often referred to as “extinction,” and involves leaving your child alone until they fall asleep without support. Again, this is not our approach. It is very important to us as your sleep consultants, and to the entire process of your child successfully learning independent sleep, that you be there for your child to provide ongoing support, guidance, love and reassurance as they are learning.
It is also very important to understand, however, that – while our approach will not have you leaving your child to simply “figure out” independent sleep on their own – there will inevitably be tears involved when your child is learning any new skill, and learning healthy sleep habits is no exception. What is important is that we help our clients manage the protest that comes along with their child undergoing a big change and learning a new skill, so that they learn quickly with tons of love and consistency.

But the changes in our home did not stop at sleep. I used to be such a zombie all day. I was so easily frustrated trying to deal with a baby that was cranky from being over-tired and a toddler who is… well a toddler! And most of this would be taken out on my husband. But now that I’m getting a full night’s sleep, I am able to be the mommy I want to be. I can be patient with my 2-year-old (and my hubby) and I think I’m ready to tackle potty training. Plus, with Liv’s naps being longer, I have the time and energy to get a few more things done around the house. I even started getting some workouts in! Lastly, now that Liv is not snacking all night she eats so much better in the day and is really starting to enjoy the solid food that she really didn’t have much interest in before.
Really, our whole world has changed for the better and we have you to thank. The program worked like a dream but what really made the difference was the personal support and guidance we received throughout the whole process. It was so reassuring to know that we were on the right track and that we weren’t in it alone. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

After the second day of working with Erin, we had a child who miraculously slept through the night and napped for 1-1.5 hours at a time! My husband and I were totally flabbergasted by these results! The positive change is not only in our child’s sleeping habits, but she’s now a happier baby overall because a rested baby is a happy baby. We now have the time to do things for ourselves and more energy to keep up with our beautiful little girl!
A worthwhile investment to a new rested self and baby… what’s better than that!
Thank you Erin!”
