Hi! I’m Jade Smith, owner of Slumber Time Sleep Consulting located in Concord, NC. I am a former teacher, wife to an amazingly supportive husband and momma to three girls aged 2-6. I’m also a Certified Sleep Sense consultant, specializing in the ages of newborn through 8 years old. I am passionate about the importance of sleep in all people, but especially in that of children. Being an exhausted parent is not a “right of passage” and doesn’t have to be a “way of life” because you have a child. A rested child is a happy & healthy child and this is achievable for you!
My journey to becoming a sleep consultant started many years ago, honestly before I even realized what was happening. Like you, I had a baby that wouldn’t sleep well. For three months, we went back and forth on long and short sleep stretches. I’d see some light when she’d sleep for 6 hours at night and then be defeated again the very next night when she’d only sleep for 3. Naps were all over the place and as soon as I’d lay her down and start to eat or shower, she’d wake up crying and we’d start the process over. I was tired, frustrated, anxious, you name it! I knew something had to give but I wasn’t sure what or how. I made a post on my Facebook page, got some suggestions of how to help our situation, heard the words “sleep training” for the first time, found a program and immediately implemented it. I was astounded to see improvements in such a short time.
