About Me

Several late night awakenings?
Early morning riser?
Yup! I have been there too!

Hi! I’m Natalie Erickson, certified children’s sleep consultant. I have my bachelors degree in mathematics and masters degree in instructional technology. For the past 8 years I have worked as a high school math teacher. But like you know, your world changes once you have your first child.

I have enjoyed every moment and milestone of my son’s life, especially now that he is a rock star sleeper! It wasn’t always this way…

Once I brought him home I just assumed sleep wasn’t going to be a part of my night because it seemed like it wasn’t a part of his. Plus everyone told me while I was pregnant “Enjoy your sleep now!” so I just figured it was a part of this “mom thing”. We had good nights and some not so good nights but I hit my rock bottom when he was about 15 months and I found myself crawling into his crib with him at night, just so I could get some sleep! (Yes I do fit, I’m 5’2”). Once I realized he wasn’t even willing to go down to sleep without me in the crib, I realized a changed needed to be made!

I did my research and found the help I needed. By night three he wasn’t crying himself to sleep, rather he was just lying down and doing it all on his own! I couldn’t believe it! Why didn’t I start sooner!? Fast forward to 17 months, he was waking up early, before 6am and his naps were only about one hour. I knew this wasn’t enough. Then we tackled problem number two with what we learned before. He then started to sleep until 7am, napped at least 2 - 3 hours, and sometimes he even reaches for the crib and put himself to sleep! I didn’t think it was possible for my little guy to be happier, but once he was getting the sleep he needed, he totally was! I didn’t occur to me how much a good night sleep improved his demeanor.

This is what prompted me to become a certified sleep consultant! I went through training and a mentorship program that gave me the best tools to share with you so you can get your little one sleeping through the night!

And now I have taken my experience and knowledge and had my second child sleeping through the night around 7 weeks old!

If you’re reading this you’re probably wishing for a full night of sleep too! Well I am here to tell you that sleep IS a part of motherhood and I can educate you on teaching your child to have the independent skills to do it on his/her own.

    Natalie helped me with my 2.5 year old! She was always a dream sleeper, but suddenly became terrified of everything, wouldn’t go to sleep, then once asleep was waking up constantly saying she was scared of everything you can imagine! Was going crazy bc her screaming was waking up my baby! Natalie helped me with a few scenarios and now she’s falling asleep on her own again and middle of the night wake-ups are rare! Thank you Natalie!!

    Natalie’s personalized plan and constant communication made our little one’s sleep journey so much easier. For months my husband and I kept hoping sleep would get better on it’s own but after countless sleepless nights and me holding our baby for every nap, only to have her sleep for 30 minutes, we knew we needed help. Natalie was willing to adjust the plan based on our wants and needs but still set us and our baby up for success. People keep asking us if it was worth it and the answer will always be absolutely, YES! We had tried different tips and tricks on our own, only to give up after a few days. We were frustrated it wasn’t working and feeling guilty for being frustrated because “all babies have sleep issues.” WRONG! Having Natalie walk us through every step of the way and support us made us confident in our adjustments and it was nearly impossible to not be consistent. Our little one is now taking 2 solid naps and sleeping 12 hours at night. Not only are my husband and I over the moon about having some time to ourselves again, our baby has never been happier! It’s only been a few weeks, and both sets of grandparents have been just as confident putting her down for naps and bedtime. We have learned that while it may be hard to take the first step, having a plan to follow and a strong support system makes it well worth it for everyone!

    Natalie is such a sweet and caring person, she made this process so much easier and made a “first time mom” feel at ease. Being over tired and overwhelmed with the whole sleep process for my son, Natalie made it easy to understand and gave excellent advice and wonderful tips when we had a trouble night or two. Natalie kept me calm and reassured my husband and myself that we can do this. My son was a happy baby before but now he’s even happier with Natalie’s help and caring wellbeing. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with their child’s sleepless night!

    Our little girl had slept in bed with us from 0-9 months and nursed every 1-2 hours thought the night. She would only nap nursing in bed with me. With Natalie’s help she now sleeps 11 hours through the night and takes two long naps during the day. She is a different, much happier well-rested baby. Natalie was supportive every step of the way and we couldn’t be happier. We highly recommend her!
