I offer sleep training plans for any age. As you can imagine, the newborn sleep plan is far different from the toddler sleep plan.
Hi, my name is Angela Knappenberger, and I am a Certified Infant and Toddler Sleep Consultant. I am committed to helping parents assist their children and babies in developing healthy sleep habits. With my BA in Special Education and Elementary Education, I have worked with children and their families for over 12 years in a variety of settings and have always excelled when I was helping others.
I never understood the value of a good night’s sleep until it was no longer a part of my life. Like most first time moms, I did whatever I could to get my baby to sleep. This meant rocking her, nursing her, pacifying her, and tending to her during the many times she woke at night. My daughter’s poor sleeping habits became my poor sleeping habits and I was soon diagnosed with postpartum depression. I even started to resent my husband as his sleep was unaffected by our daughter’s many nightly nursing sessions. I was all but ready to accept that my child just wasn't a good sleeper, when my doctor told me about the Sleep Sense program. I quickly implemented the program, and my daughter became the sleeper I had always dreamed of! Naturally, as her sleeping habits improved, so did mine! My symptoms of postpartum depression lessened as did my resentment toward my husband. Sleep Sense not only gave my daughter the gift of sleep, but it gave me back my sanity, my marriage, and so much more!
