Family Sleep Consulting

Helping Canadian Families Sleep Well And Live Happier!

Meet Stacey!

Founder & Owner of Sleep by Nature // Certified Child Sleep Consultant & Mom of 2!

Every child (yes, including yours!) is capable of sleeping well. The whole family deserves to feel well-rested regularly. Parents can set their children up for sleep success, but the answers are not always obvious or common sense. That’s okay – help is available – and the benefits of healthy sleep are endless. It is common for parents to have questions about their child’s sleep during infancy, toddler, pre-school, and school-age years. Sleep by Nature specializes in answering those questions and provides real solutions for your sleep time challenges based on expert experience, proven techniques, science, and nature. Educational and coaching services are offered through virtual consultations, emails, and sleep logs to help families achieve healthy sleep.

Common topics we cover while working together are:

  • Safe sleep and sleep environment
  • Age-appropriate sleep schedules & routines 
  • Consolidating sleep for nights and naps
  • Bed-sharing & co-sleeping transitions
  • Crib to bed transition
  • Nap transitions
Other key focuses:
  • Meeting the individual needs of the child and family
  • Setting a positive tone using mindfulness & a family-centered approach
  • Maintaining consistency and routines
  • Bonding and trust-building being the foundation of what it means to sleep train

Are You

Tired from lack of consolidated sleep?

Frustrated with web searches filled with conflicting information?

Ready for change? To get the facts and solutions specific to your family?

Why Is Sleep So Important?

Because it is a biological need, we can’t live without it and we are not at our best if we don’t get enough of it.

Because it impacts health, mood, behaviour and performance.

Because sleeping well makes life better!

Children Require Much More Sleep Than Adults Do.

The results…

Family sleep consulting allows for a well-rested family with parents who actually get to enjoy some me-time.

Time spent relaxing instead of doing things to put your child to sleep desperately is an opportunity to reduce stress or restore energy, and in the end, enjoy something that you love doing while your child is having well-deserved Zzz!

How It Works:

Sleep By Nature

Step 1 - Intake Form

A family sleep intake form is sent to you to be filled out. This form will be used in preparation for your consultation.

Step 2 - Consultation

During your pre-scheduled consultation, we will go over your intake form in more detail.  I will provide you with recommendations that encourage healthy sleep and we will discuss your sleep plan options. We will work together to come up with a realistic plan that suits your family, one that you are comfortable and confident to move forward with.

Step 3 - Sleep Plan

Your unique Sleep Plan document is created and sent to you within 24 hours from the consultation.  Your sleep plan breakdown includes: 

  1. Sleep Environment
  2. Safe Sleep Practices
  3. The Sleep Schedule
  4. Steps for Sleep Success

a. Routine
b. Approach
c. Important Sleep Facts
d. Other notes

Step 4 - Sleep Log + Coaching Support

A sleep log is an excellent tool for tracking sleep patterns and progress. Daily check-ins to see how you and your child are doing are communicated easily in the notes section of the shared sleep log. Coaching support is offered through the sleep log, email, and up to 2 phone calls per week. As you near the end of your package you have the option to add on an extra week of support as needed or desired.  For most sleep plans we recommend a commitment of 2 weeks without interruption (long car rides, vacation, appointments) so your child has a good opportunity to get used to their sleep schedule and new healthy sleep habits. Just 2 weeks is usually all it takes!

Step 5 - Last Day Wrap-Up

On your last day, you will receive a wrap-up phone call or email.  You will be provided with a “Tips for Long-term Sleep Success” document that covers outings, vacation, illness, progressions/regressions, nap transitions, crib to bed transition, and other sleep tips and tricks!

What Families Are Saying

Sleep by Nature Client Testimonials

Stacey is amazing! She helped us tremendously in just a week. She accommodated us and made a sleep plan that fit within our comfort zone. I would highly recommend Stacey as she is very caring, empathetic, and knowledgeable. She was so quick to respond to my questions.
If you are having issues with your child’s sleep and need help, contact Stacey ! You will not be disappointed. 

Ashleigh A.

Stacey is the best!! My son went from waking up to nurse to sleep every 1-3 hours, to sleeping through the night by night 2! He naps regularly so we can actually make plans around his nap schedule, rather than have him fall asleep in the car 2 minutes before we arrive somewhere! I was an exhausted mom for 13 months and needed help. We met with Stacey, she made a plan that worked for our family, and literally changed our lives! Hiring Stacey was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. My son deserves a mom who is happy and well rested and thanks to Stacey, now he has one:) 

Amanda P.

My daughter went from nursing to sleep and sleeping half the night in our bed to putting herself to sleep and in her own room for 12 hrs a night!!! Thank you so much!

Stephanie H.

Stacey has changed my life!!! We have 5 children in our house and Stacey made a plan for my 4 year old as well as my 6 month old! Being such a busy household I never thought I would sleep again! Stacey was absolutely exceptional! She worked with my family and created a sleep plan that was not only successful but was also something that I felt comfortable doing. I never felt judged or like I wasn’t doing what I supposed to. When I did feel like I wasn’t following the plan properly she adjusted it and made all of my goals attainable. During the beginning of the process my husband was away and she was aware I was starting it on my own. She kept in contact with me the entire evening and made sure I had the support I needed. I don’t think I would have made it through the night without her!! Since Stacey came into our lives we all sleep better and my son’s teacher commented on how his behavior has improved so drastically in school! Thank You Stacey!

Leila M.

Stacey was fabulous throughout the entire sleep training process. She was attentive, supportive, knowledgeable and most important- caring. It was so important to my husband and I to follow a gentle approach as we have a very sensitive little guy who has had numerous challenges throughout his 10 months – and even during our sleep training! Stacey took the time to really get a good understanding of our little guy and helped us develop a perfect plan for us. He went from waking every 1-1.5hrs (at the most!) to sleeping his longest stretches ever. We are so grateful for Stacey’s dedication to our success, and the healthy sleep habits our little guy has developed. She was flexible, reliable, and a fabulous resource during our entire process.
