I’m Alanna McGinn the founder and lead sleep expert here at Good Night Sleep Site, host of the ‘This Girl Loves Sleep’ podcast and author of ‘This Baby Loves Sleep’.
I started Good Night Sleep Site in 2007 when my first child (of three – one + twins!) was a baby. In the years since, my team of sleep consultants and I have helped thousands of families successfully overcome their sleep challenges and establish healthy nighttime habits so they can get the sleep they need to feel healthy, happy and at their best.
Sleep is, quite simply, everything.
And we’re here to help you and your family get more of it – so you can feel your best and tackle all that the world (and your kids) throw your way.
Good Night Sleep Site was founded by Alanna McGinn in 2007 and now includes an incredible team of sleep consultants across North America that work together to support clients around the world.
Every member of our team is fully certified through The Family Sleep Institute, an extensive 6-month sleep training certification program consisting of over 250+ hours of training that is recognized as one of the few in depth and extensive certifications in the Sleep Consulting industry that Alanna also serves on the faculty.
Most of the support we provide is online sleep program-based, with 1:1 and group support organized according to age: newborn (up to 4 months), baby (4 to 12 months), toddler, kid to teen, and adult sleep support. We also run corporate sleep workshops and are the go-to sleep expert for a number of national publications and media outlets.
In all that we do, our mission is to educate, guide, and support families as they become a healthier, more well-rested family unit.
Founder Alanna McGinn
Nobody loves sleep more than our founder and fearless leader Alanna McGinn! She started Good Night Sleep Site in 2007 and has grown it into a leading source of sleep information and support for families across North America and around the world.
Based out of Toronto, Ontario, Alanna is a wife and mother of three (one + twins!) Her career as a sleep expert began shortly after her first child was born. There was so much out there on pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding – but she couldn’t find any resources to support her when it came to sleep.
So, she started doing her research and had great success getting her daughter (and therefore herself!) the sleep she needed using the principles and techniques she had learned. Word got out that she’d ‘cracked the code’ and, before long, Alanna was fielding sleep questions from friends and neighbours on a daily basis.
It was clear there was a need for sleep training support and Alanna wanted to use her awareness, ability and understanding to help others who were struggling – so she became certified as Sleep Consultant through The Family Sleep Institute, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Since 2007 she and her trusted team of sleep consultants have successfully helped thousands of families overcome their sleep challenges and establish healthy nighttime habits so they can get the sleep they need.
In addition to running Good Night Sleep Site, Alanna hosts the top- rated This Girl Loves Sleep Podcast and is the author of This Baby Loves Sleep. She is also a sought-after speaker, resident sleep expert for multiple publications (including Forbes, Maclean’s, Today’s Parent, and Prevention Magazine) and the media sleep expert on Cityline, The Marilyn Denis Show, Breakfast Television, CBC Radio, Your Morning, CP24, CHCH Morning Live, and 680 News.
