Hi, I’m Loryn Best, Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant. In 2014, I had my first daughter, Kinley. Kinley was a great sleeper from the beginning. She started sleeping through the night at 8 weeks and I thought, “This whole sleep thing is easy!” We had a few ups and downs with regressions and resisting bedtime, but for the most part she was a breeze when it came to sleep. I had Everly in January 2017 and she was a different story. We struggled with sleep for a full year. I was exhausted and cranky and Everly was visibly sleep-deprived and cried often. Strangers would make comments about her looking sleepy or needing a nap. She never liked being laid down, woke multiple times in the night and woke for the day in the 5:00 hour. She never napped longer than 45 minutes unless it was in the car. I tried many different tips but nothing seemed to work. I finally found the Sleep Sense Program and a certified Sleep Sense sleep consultant. My husband and I teamed together with the tools they provided and eventually Everly learned to sleep…and pretty quickly too! She slept 12+ hours a night, woke up around 7:00am, and took long naps. I felt like a new person. When I learned about the opportunity to become a sleep consultant, I knew I had to take it. It is now my passion to help tired moms teach their little ones go to sleep independently and learn to sleep well.
