Hannah Peterson-Sleep Consultant
My name is Hannah Peterson, mom of four, who is passionate about working with families and helping them teach their little ones how to sleep. I have experience as a Pediatric nurse and a Certified Sleep Consultant working with newborns through to preschoolers.
I believe that every parent should have the tools to be able to lay a healthy foundation for sleep, no matter what their parenting style (crunchy, breastfeeding, formula fed, attachment parenting, no cry) at the end of the day sleep is a biological necessity and not a luxury.
