Working with Ronee on my adult sleep issues was absolutely a pleasure! She’s so helpful and patient and knowledgeable. She provides you with a realistic plan to help you to identify your barriers to great sleep! Even if you’re skeptical as to if she can fix all of your sleep challenges…you owe it to yourself […]

Transitioning Out of the Crib

When transitioning your child out of their crib, the first important thing to remember is that there is no magic age that you should move your child to a “big kid” bed. As a new mom 15yrs ago, I thought there was an age that you just made the transition no matter what the circumstance […]

Night Terrors vs Nightmares

Most parents have seen some sort of night waking event in their child’s young life that wasn’t about feeding or changing their diaper. They will wonder what’s happening…Is it teething? Is it pain? Are they sick? What can I do to help the crying or screaming stop?! What you need to do depends on whether or […]

I came to Ronee for help when I realized that I couldn’t get my 5 year old out of my room without some help. My son would start out in his bed and end up in our room every night. While he didn’t often wake me up doing so, I knew his sleep was being […]

Daylight Savings Time – “Falling Back”

Daylight savings time is coming up this weekend! Let me just start by saying that if I had my way, there would not be a daylight savings time! Statistically, there is an 8% increase in traffic accidents the Monday after daylight savings time kicks in. It really does have an effect on all of us– especially […]

10 Tips For Traveling With Your Child

Traveling with a child or children can often be exhausting, frustrating, and potentially the unraveling of a great sleeper, but it doesn’t have to be. Yes, you will probably have to work hard at keeping your child on their normal schedule (at least part of the time) while you’re away and yes, you will likely […]

Are Schedules Really That Important?

Parents often ask me if having a good schedule is really that important, and the answer is yes! Children thrive on schedules! Whether you have a baby, toddler, preschooler, or school aged child, they all appreciate knowing what comes next in their day. If you have an older child that can talk well, then you […]

First of all, I want to congratulate you on your decision to give your child breast milk! We all know that breast milk is best, but the act of breastfeeding can sometimes be overwhelming and a little […]
