Sleep Makes

Everything Better

How Good Can It Be?

Hi, I’m Kim Rogers.

I’m a solo mom of a little boy, and my passion is helping families get the sleep they need.

I’m a champion of postpartum support, maternal mental health and infant mental health.

I believe that secure attachment happens when parents have enough energy to be emotionally available and responsive to their children.

It happens when...

  • Families feel healthy and well.

  • Parents can show up for life, for their children, and for each other.

  • Moms have energy to enjoy motherhood.

  • Children enjoy their childhood.

  • And when everyone, baby included, loves being alive.

When my child was a baby, he cried often and didn't nap. I was told that this is normal, this is motherhood. No one sleeps.

Then he started waking every hour at night. After many weeks and months, I couldn’t take it anymore.

To say that we were both suffering is an understatement.

Do you know the feeling?

When your baby has finally gone down for a nap, and you want to sleep too. But there’s a laundry list of to-dos in your head. Then she wakes after 30 minutes.

When you rock, bounce and sing forever, then finally put her in her crib, only to hear her wake a shortly after.

Sleeping Well Consulting In the News

Testimonials

"Hiring Kim as a sleep consultant for my baby was one of the best investments I’ve ever made! My little boy learned to self-soothe and started sleeping through the night from around 7.30 pm to 7am. I’m now a well-rested and much happier mama. I had read a couple of baby sleep books, and they were helpful, but the fact is that babies are all different and when things don’t go according to plan, it makes all the difference to have someone to ask what to do and coach you through it. Kim has a baby of her own, so I knew she understood all the little quirks and concerns. Kim is both assertive and caring in her approach, which is exactly what you need in a sleep consultant."  --Natalie

"I never could have imagined that I’d enjoy sleeping 8+ hours. All my life I’ve never needed to sleep much, 4-6 hours was plenty. When our first-born came, sh*t got real. Fast. I was irritable, me and my wife were arguing like stars in a latin soap opera. Our little one couldn’t sleep for more than 2 hours. I kept trying to figure out what was wrong, and all I could do was seek any sliver of light from my lonely cave, exhausted and worn from constant crying. I talked with every parent-friend, read forums, blogs, and books. None of those one size fits all solutions worked for our fussy little angel. My wife insisted we try sleep training, it’s custom made for our family. Boom. Our little one is now sleeping 11+ hours regularly after just a few days of some specific adjustments, and now I sleep for 8+ hours right along with her. I have embraced how magical sleep is, and the difference it makes with everyone’s health and well-being. It’s like I can see rainbows and taste my favorite meal again for the first time! Sleep training our daughter was one of the best commitments we have made." -- Albert

"Maddie is like a totally different kid when it comes to sleeping now. I greatly appreciate your help, coaching, and tips. It's crazy that you try to keep your child safe by putting up a baby gate and unintentionally cause her to have anxiety and stress and keep her from sleeping. I'm really amazed at how well this worked. She has been sleeping through the night. Also, today she took a nap IN HER BED!!!!!! Daycare said that she has been napping good there too and that she is getting up with the other kids on her own now (I suppose she is more well rested). Thank you so much!" -- Elise Bugg

Sleep Problems I Help Solve

  • Frequent night wakings.
  • Difficulty falling asleep.
  • The need to fall asleep by rocking, nursing, pacifier, bottle or any other "prop."
  • Waking too early in the morning.
  • Difficulty napping, short naps, no naps.
  • Transition from co-sleeping to crib, crib to bed, and from parent's room to child's own room.
  • Difficulty keeping your little one in bed all night.
  • Sleep issues during traveling and times of illness.

I often say that sleep training is a misnomer. You won't be training your child to do something, but rather, you'll be allowing your child natural sleep and allowing your child to follow his or her instincts to do what comes naturally. I'll show you the signs to watch for as your child is putting himself or herself to sleep, and how to nudge your little one in that direction if they are frustrated, all while offering your comforting support and presence.

Some call it compassionate sleep training or sleep teaching, or gentle sleep training. My methods are personalized for your child and family situation, to ensure the least amount of stress and crying so that your child can go to sleep easily and peacefully night after night in the fastest amount of time.

I will take the time to evaluate your child's needs and learn how to help him or her fall asleep more easily and stay asleep during the night.

Contact me today to learn how we can work together or if you have any questions!
