Hi, I’m Jessica Sawicki and I'm so happy you found me! Let me introduce myself... I am a mom of four kids, and have been working with hundreds of tired parents all over the world for the last 10 years. I have a B.A. in Communications and Journalism, and worked in the Marketing & Advertising field in my 'previous life.'
When my second son was just 21 months old, he started to jump out of the crib—at nap time, night time, and in the early morning hours! My husband and I were exhausted. Worse, we were completely at a loss; we had no idea how to get our son to sleep again. We contacted a sleep consultant. It was the best decision we could’ve made! Two weeks later he was sound asleep in his new bed!
I then decided to become a sleep consultant myself—to help parents who aren’t getting the restful nights so critical to their families’ physical and emotional well-being. I am trained and certified by Kim West, LCSW-S (a.k.a. The Sleep Lady®), and I am now a Gentle Sleep Coach. As a certified Gentle Sleep Coach, I am renewing my certification on a yearly basis with certifications and additional educational classes in the field.
As the most trusted professional baby/infant/toddler sleep consultant located in Miami, Florida, I have worked with hundreds of cases over the last 10 years. I have experience working with twins and triplets, with families all over South Florida, including Miami-Dade and Broward County, as well as all over the world. I am dedicated to helping you and your family get the rest you need. With different packages to choose from, I will develop a specified plan that best suits your parenting style so we can solve your child’s sleep problems together. I can’t wait to solve your child’s sleep problems so your whole family can get back to bed and sleeping! Contact me today to set up your initial FREE call.
