Summer & Sleep Training

As summer approaches many parents wonder if it makes sense to simply wait to sleep train- as a sleep consultant, my answer is don’t wait! Why? Sleep is far too important for the development of your little one’s brain, memory function, and cognitive development to wait. Often in the summer our little ones play much harder which means their brain and body is working much harder and needs better recovery time.

If you are traveling this summer, you can still train. I recommend being home for 2 straight weeks as you train prior to any travel. Set your routine and new sleep expectations for your little one, then while you travel stick to it as much as possible. I recommend having a roll away cot or air mattress rather than co-sleeping so your little one doesn’t get confused with expectations while on a trip.

Picture of Jennie


Jennie is a certified sleep consultant with a background in Child and Adolescent Studies who specializes in teaching toddlers and children to choose to stay in their open bed, fall asleep independently, and sleep through the night. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Child and Adolescent Studies, and spending time in the classroom, she decided to follow her passion and move to New York City to become a professional theatre actress. Between shows, she worked as a nanny. One family had a toddler that couldn’t fall asleep without help, he refused to nap and would wake-up multiple times a night. Frustrated by the lack of resources for toddler sleep issues she became a certified sleep consultant. Relying on her education and experience, she then created Week to Sleep geared for toddlers in an open bed.

Jennie has helped so many families across the country make bedtime easy and enjoyable. She has been featured on Mommy Mingle, Parentville, corporate Google, and buybuybaby. Jennie’s favorite part of working with families is when a toddler runs to their parents in the morning exclaiming, “I did it, I am SO proud of me!
