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.
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.

As a culture we seem perpetually concerned about how much sleep we need versus how much we actually get (called our “sleep debt”).
