A Sleep Support
program for newborn families

If we could share ONE thing with newborn families, it's this: by taking a proactive approach with your baby's sleep, you can avoid major sleep issues in the future. With the right knowledge, patience, and practice, you can skip endless sleep regressions and lay the groundwork for healthy habits from the beginning — without the need for sleep training.

Fueled by a passion for healthy sleep and supporting newborn families, we've crafted our latest offering: Newborn SleepPods. These small groups cater specifically to families with newborns, bringing together 4-6 families whose babies are born within a month of each other. This intimate setting allows us to provide personalized sleep support to each family while fostering an environment of mutual learning and support.

Over the course of 8 weeks, we dive into common challenges of newborn sleep, including age-appropriate sleep needs, managing feeding and sleep patterns, navigating the witching hour, addressing frequent night wakings, tackling short naps, exploring sleep aids and devices, combating overtiredness, and more.

Within your SleepPod, you'll discover not just a supportive community, but also the confidence and skills needed to establish a solid foundation for healthy sleep habits, ensuring restful nights and brighter days moving forward.

I contacted Amanda the day after my husband and I brought our baby girl home from the hospital. We wanted to get our daughter sleeping well right away and Amanda was super sweet and helpful. It made recovering from an emergency C-section so much less stressful and once we got through the initial month of weight gain night feedings, she started sleeping through the night. Thanks to her help, we were able to set our daughter up for success with independent sleep and now at 5 months old, she's a sleeping champ!

About the

Who is the program for?

Families with newborns between 2-8 weeks of age who are ready to begin laying the foundation for sleep independence in his or her own sleep space (room sharing is fine!). If your baby is outside of this age range, please don't hesitate to reach out to discuss potential support options:

When do we start?

We will begin when your baby is between 2 - 8 weeks old depending on when you join the program and when your sleep pod is formed. Once you sign up we will be in touch. If for any reason we are unable to form a pod of 4-6 families to include you, we will offer the option for a full refund.

Is this the same as sleep training?

No. We do not recommend sleep training a newborn. Instead, we take a gentle and gradual approach with age-appropriate sleep techniques applied over 8 weeks time.  

Will I need to sleep train my baby later on?

As long as you consistently implement the tools and strategies we will be teaching in the group, your baby will have the independent sleep skills needed to avoid the need to sleep train down the road.

What if I can't join all of the live weekly calls?

Although we encourage families to attend as many live calls as possible, we understand that conflicts come up. All calls will be recorded and shared with group members after each session, and Q&A questions can be pre-submitted for those who cannot attend live.

What day of the week are the weekly calls?

Once we form your SleepPod, we will survey the group to determine a day of the week and time that suits everyone. Session recordings will be shared afterward for any family who is unable to attend live.

Can I still contact nap and plan for naps on the go?

Absolutely! We encourage parents who want to contact nap or plan for naps while out and about to do so. This is a flexible and realistic approach to sleep. Your baby does not need to take every nap in his or her own sleep space to be able to learn the sleep skills we will be teaching.

What are the sleep results I can expect after 8 weeks?

Although results will vary depending on your child’s individual needs and temperament, you can expect your baby to be able to fall asleep independently, sleep longer night stretches, and take better naps by the end of the program. Our #1 goal (and the biggest predictor of sleep success down the road) is for your baby to learn the skill of sleep independence.

What should I do if I have a question not answered here?

Please send me an email at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
