It’s time to get your sleep back!

Are you ready to be a functioning adult again and actually look forward to laying your child down to sleep?

If so, you are in the right place!

Hi there, tired parent!

We’re Julie & Leah, certified infant & toddler sleep consultants and your dream team here at The Sleepyhead Coach.

We provide you with science-based, age-appropriate sleep solutions that work. You get your ME time back and can wake up in the morning only needing just one cup of coffee to get through the day! Fun fact: Leah and Julie have actually known each other since middle school and unbeknownst to them, they had enrolled in the same certification program and well, the rest is history!

We want you to look forward to laying your child down to sleep and know it won’t be a struggle! If the idea of a nap long enough to give you time to shower sounds like a dream come true, well then we make dreams come true! You can stop the overwhelming Google searches of “how to get my child to sleep” as we will give you all the tools you need to teach your child how to independently fall asleep and stay asleep. You will support your child to sleep and we will support you through the process.  If you want someone you can trust who is going to teach you how to get this done in a way that is FAIR for your child’s age and development, then we are your people!

“I was so anxious about sleep training, but Leah was very knowledgeable and supportive. The sleep training plan she provided was so thorough that I was confident in my ability to soothe my baby while also teaching her the vital skill of falling asleep on her own. By the second night, my baby was no longer waking multiple times, and by the third day she was napping three times a day! I could not have done this so easily without Leah’s guidance and constant support.”

– Ashlyn, 6 month old

Meet Julie

I’m Julie and I live in Westchester, NY with my husband and two daughters and every night I love when 7pm rolls around when I can confidently say goodnight to them and get my personal time in (hello Netflix!). 

I actually didn’t have any real sleep struggles with my first – she’s what I like to lovingly refer to as my unicorn sleeper! I started to realize I had a natural knack for baby sleep when my friends would constantly ask me for my daughter’s ever-changing schedule.  

But for me, my journey to becoming a sleep consultant started after my second daughter. I struggled with how to manage her nap schedule while dealing with my 3 year-old’s day-to-day activities.  I wanted immediate results and the techniques and schedules I used for my oldest weren’t working for my daughter.  I had to readjust my mindset and use a different approach for her personality and really hold myself accountable to be consistent. 

When I discovered the pediatric sleep consultant world a light bulb went off in my head.  Here I would get to do what I naturally love to do in relationships (support and give advice, I’m a Type 2 Enneagram!) for parents who are going through something SO profound that I can personally relate to. With two completely different sleepers of my own, I pride myself in creating unique plans that will work for your unique child. Even our sleep school provides you with options so you don’t feel stuck with just one schedule or one training method.

Meet Leah

I’m Leah and I live in Fairfield County, CT with my son, daughter, beloved dog and silly cat. I like to lead with a gentle and loving hand when looking into what will be the best method for your child to learn to love their sleep as much as we love ours.

For me, my journey to becoming a sleep consultant started with my first-born son. He was no lightweight coming into this world at 10.5 pounds and continued to be a big milk drinker! This meant he wanted to feed throughout the night and would only take his naps on my chest. By the time he was 5 months I was one exhausted mama to say the least and made the big decision to use a sleep consultant.  To my complete and utter disbelief within a couple of days, he was sleeping through the night and in his crib for his naps! I thought this was too good to be true but instead it was my new reality. 

Sleep training had given me my sense of freedom back and a baby that was delightful. From that moment on I knew in my heart that this was something I needed to be a part of. I wanted to help all other exhausted and lost parents find the path to sleep-filled nights again. 

I want this process to be as smooth as possible for your whole family and in the end everyone can be well rested and brighter each and every day moving forward.
Nothing brings me more joy than hearing the excitement and relief from parents after they see it really does work and it doesn’t have to be scary.

“Julie was amazing to work with. She was incredibly kind, flexible, patient and attentive to my questions, concerns and anxieties regarding sleep training. Prior to working with Julie, my 8 month old daughter needed to be rocked to sleep and was waking every night for milk. Leveraging Julie’s methods, I was able to break those habits in just a few days. I’m so thankful that I no longer need to wake up in the middle of the night to feed and soothe my daughter. I just finished the program and have already recommended Julie to my friends and family that are having babies soon.”
