Hi! My name is Aleni! My partner Dave and I have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter named Nora. We are from Buffalo, NY, USA. I am a Baby-Led Sleep and Well-Being Specialist certified by the Baby-Led sleep certification program. I came across Baby-Led Sleep on social media when my daughter was about 4 months old. She wasn’t sleeping through the night and the first thing our pediatrician said to us was to sleep train with the cry it out method. Stunned by her reaction I just nodded and agreed with her for the rest of the appointment. When we got home, we tried to sleep train for her nap and I couldn’t do it for more than 5 minutes. My heart and mama instincts were telling me “No! This doesn’t feel right. I don’t want to do this to her. I can’t have her cry herself to sleep.”
Looking for help, answers, and support, I came across the Baby-Led Sleep approach. I felt so hopeful, supported, and empowered. I knew my mama instincts were right and I was making the best decision for my daughter to support her to sleep. I want to help families feel hopeful, supported, and empowered. I am here to tell you that you don’t have to sleep train to get your baby to sleep. I will support you throughout this journey of parenthood. I will teach you to look at baby sleep holistically and instinctually. I will help you feel empowered by making the choices that feel right for you and your family.
Let’s start by saying what I’m not. I’m NOT a sleep trainer. I’m NOT a sleep coach. I’m NOT a sleep consultant.
I am here to support YOU and your baby. I look at baby sleep holistically and instinctually.
I will not make you do anything that you’re uncomfortable with. I will not give you a generic plan for your baby because every baby is different and unique. I’m here to guide you and your baby’s specific needs.
I will teach you what normal baby sleep looks like.
I will focus on attachment and connection instead of separation and fear.
I want you to follow your parental instincts and do what’s best for you and your family.
The saying goes, “it takes a village to raise a baby”, and I’d love to be a part of your village.
During this 15 minute call, we will figure out what support works best for you and your family!
Need some help navigating your little one's sleep? I am happy to help! I have multiple packages that will support you through any struggles you're facing. We will come up with a personalized plan for your family moving forward.
