Baby Sleep Geek helping parents develop healthy sleeping habits

SACO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Developing healthy sleeping habits for babies can be tough for most families. But it's getting easier thanks to a sleep expert in Maine.

A tired mom wanted to help her own family sleep better, and now it's turned into a business with proven results.

It started with a common scenario for moms and babies struggling to sleep through the night: "She would fall asleep and she would be awake within ten minutes," said Danielle Gerrish who is a client of Baby Sleep Geek. They resorted to nursing and co-sleeping to make it easier, but it got worse for Danielle and one-year-old Hadley.

"We were not sleeping at all," Gerrish said. "She wasn't getting rest. I wasn't getting rest."

That's when a pediatrician recommended The Baby Sleep Geek: a certified sleep consultant for infants and children.

Baby Sleep Geek Jessica Begley says, "What I do is present the options and then really the parents are the ones that decide the approach that's going to work best for their family because I might be an expert in sleep, but the parents are the experts on their family."

Gerrish said the first night of the new routine was tough, but for the last 3 weeks the whole family has slept better.
