My first son had many sleepless nights (as in 0 hours of sleep) that left me feeling crazy (literally); I know I'm not alone! I'm a big believer that as parent we have to do whats best for our baby and ourselves and in every family and with every baby that's different. I personally know that I am a much better mom and person when I'm feeling my best (or close to it), which includes at least a few good hours of sleep :-).
That's why I am SO excited to introduce you to The Baby Sleep Geek; I only wish I met her sooner! As a sleep enthusiast, the mission of the Baby Sleep Geek is help every family get the sleep they need to be happy, healthy, and well rested. I love it! Jessica Begley, the founder of The Baby Sleep Geek is a local Maine mom of 2. She also holds a Master's Degree in Public Health, is a Certified Lactation Counselor, is a Child Birth and Health Educator with over 10 years of experience, and is the only Family Sleep Institute Child Sleep Consultant in all of northern New England (NH, ME, VT).
As a child Sleep Consultant, Jessica creates a comprehensive plan that is unique to your family's needs, your parenting philosophy, and your child's temperament. It's more than sleep training. In fact, when you implement her plan your baby will need less sleep training than if you went about it on your own because she sets your child up for success from the start. It's not a quick fix, but creating healthy sleep for life. Learn more about Jessica and the offerings of The Baby Sleep Geek on her Facebook Page.
I am SO excited about what we have in store for you! I'm thrilled that Jessica had offered to do a virtual Q&A with Mainely Mama readers. Here's how it will work:
All you sleep deprived moms and dads or expecting parents out there, get your questions ready! Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to having Jessica back with us in a couple weeks, and can't wait to hear what she has to say!
I'm Rebecca, a Maine mom of three energetic young boys and wife of a lobsterman, living in my favorite place, the coast of Maine.

Most days I'm just figuring it out as I go - Thanks so much for stopping by!
