What To Expect From These Case Studies
Here’s a selection case studies from people who have experienced baby sleep problems with their children. In some cases, the names of the infants have been changed for privacy reasons.

Every Parent Is Different
Every child is different and so is every parent! What may work for one parent may not be ideal or even possible for another. My baby sleep solutions are individually tailored for each family.
