My name is Nicole Johnson and I am a married mother of two wonderful boys, as well as the Lead Baby Sleep Consultant and owner of The Baby Sleep Site® founded over 10 years ago.
When my eldest son was a baby, he had a lot of sleep problems. Sleep like a baby? Yeah, right! You had better hope you never sleep like my baby did. He would wake up every one or two hours, all night long. I had to do so much to get him through the night.
By thoroughly researching the key literature and scientific reports, I became an expert in sleep methods, scheduling routines, baby’s development needs and more. I overcame my son’s sleeping issues in a way that matched my own parenting style, and knew it was my mission to help other tired parents “find their child’s sleep.”
I started by leading an Internet-based message board and helped countless parents just like you overcome their own sleeping challenges much quicker and faster than I had. I then created this website in 2008 and expanded my offerings to include e-books, articles, a blog, and personalized sleep consulting. The feedback from around the world has been incredible!
I have also held a position on the board for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC) since 2015. The IACSC strives to ensure sleep consultants have an adequate background to be a professional sleep consultant. The IACSC also provides continuing education to its members in areas which influence sleep practices such as child psychology, nutrition, child development, and many others as it pertains to sleep.
I would love to help you with your challenge. Know that I never offer one-size-fits-all advice or pass judgment on your parenting philosophies. I incorporate who you are and what your child is undergoing to create a unique service. And, I will give you the support you need to see your challenge through to the end.

After reading many articles and scouring the internet for solutions, Bonnie reached out to Nicole and her team here at The Baby Sleep Site®. She was very grateful to get help and relief. Empowered with this new information, and a baby that would sleep through the night, Bonnie turned her efforts to helping other tired parents find the answers they need to their child’s sleep problems.
