Welcome tired families!
• Are you totally confused about how to help your child sleep or nap?
• Does a good night’s sleep sound like an impossibility?
• Is it hard to remember the last time you felt rested?
Take a deep breath. Let’s talk about sleep.
I’m Rachel, your certified pediatric sleep consultant. And trust me - your child CAN sleep!
Let me help you reclaim your nights, your relationships, and your parenting joy.
Welcome! My name is Rachel Glantz, Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant and mom to two amazing sleepers! But they weren’t always that way. My own sleep journey began when we brought our newborn daughter home to our apartment on Pine Street and promptly realized that our baby wasn’t a “natural” sleeper. We watched for nonexistent sleepy signs, suffered through months of 20 minute naps and hit our breaking point when our otherwise delicious baby was waking every 45 minutes throughout the night. We had absolutely no clue how to help her sleep. That’s when we reached out for guidance. Our sleep consultant helped us climb out of our sleep-deprived fog and supported us as we taught both our daughters lifelong sleep skills. I have been obsessed with kids’ sleep ever since!
In addition to certifying as a Pediatric Sleep Consultant with the pioneering Family Sleep Institute, I am a licensed Physician Associate (PA) and worked for 8 years in Primary Care. You can trust that I have your whole family’s health in mind. My favorite part of working in healthcare has always been connecting with my patients, understanding their needs, laying out all treatment options, and encouraging them to be active players and decision-makers in their own health care. This is exactly the kind of relationship that a good sleep consultant fosters with her clients.
While I am based in West Hartford, CT, I am thrilled to bring sleep support to the Greater Hartford area and beyond!
Why hire a sleep consultant? I will help:
Give you the knowledge
The science of sleep is fascinating! I will teach you about your child’s drive for sleep, how to optimize your household’s sleep hygiene, and the many benefits sleep contributes to your child’s short term and long term health.
Give you the tools
Let me take the guesswork out of all the available information out there. I will create a plan that is customized for your child and your parenting style and lay out each step of how to achieve healthy sleep.
Give you the confidence
I am your coach and personal cheerleader, available by email and phone, supporting YOU as you make the necessary adjustments to achieve better sleep for all!
Do any of these sound familiar?
• “I am so tired I can’t function at work or home”
• “My baby will only sleep in my arms”
• “My child will only fall asleep by nursing”
• “My child wakes up all night long”
• “My baby will only take 20 minute naps”
• “My child just won’t take naps anymore”
• “My child won’t stay in bed”
• “My child went through a sleep regression and sleep has never been the same!”
Sleep is a necessity, not a luxury.
For parents, yes, and also for children! Did you know that healthy sleep positively affects our moods, behavior and cognition?
