The term He slept like a baby might have an entirely different meaning to you if you have a sleeper that was anything like my son. When he was a newborn, my son was waking up all throughout the night and I thought, This is normal. He will grow out of it.

Fast forward 5 months and he was still waking up every 1-2 hours a night. I dreaded going to sleep, and I had terrible anxiety not knowing what the night would hold. I was frustrated, hopeless, and exhausted; I didn’t know what to do or who to turn to for help.

I researched online and asked others for advice, and this is when I found the Sleep Sense Program. The program provided a step by step guide on how to gently teach my son independent sleep skills. Quickly after starting the program he was sleeping through the night! This is when I knew I wanted to help educate parents on how to guide their child towards healthier sleep.

Hi, my name is Amanda Medley! I am the proud owner of Sleep Well Children! With my M.A in Education and my B.A. in Child Development, I have worked with children and families in various settings for the past 15 years.

After going through the Sleep Sense training program, as well as extensive education and mentoring with Sleep Well Sleep Specialists, I now understand the importance of healthy sleep and how to help families get a good night’s rest. If you are having difficulties with your child’s sleep, I can help through individual consultations, webinars, and in-home coaching and support.

I look forward to serving your family on your journey to restful and restorative sleep!

Here is what clients are saying about working with Amanda

"From my first call with Amanda I felt like she genuinely cared about helping my family.  She understood how much we were struggling to get my 4 year old to sleep.  Not only did Amanda give us a fantastic plan but she always had good advice. My son was in his room sleeping with minimal trouble within the first week! I couldn't have been more happier with the care and attention I received and I highly recommend the support at Sleep Well to anyone experiencing difficulty getting their little ones sleeping well." 

"Amanda was so helpful in getting our son to start sleeping through the night. Our first child never had any issues with nighttime or daytime sleep so were very unprepared to deal with our son’s sleep issues. He was unable to take a nap by himself for more than 15-30 minutes and even that was a struggle. At nighttime he would sleep perfectly well so long as he was being held. By about 4 months my husband and I were reaching our limit of sleeplessness and we reached out to Sleep Well Children Consulting. Amanda was very sympathetic to our struggles and assured us that nothing we said was something she hadn’t heard before and that she was confident she could help us. We started the sleep plan when he was 5 months old and within three days our son was sleeping through the night with minimal comfort needed to fall asleep. Since then he has rarely needed any nighttime support and falls asleep quickly. It took about 6 weeks for his naps to stabilize but once they did he averages two hour naps twice a day. It took some time and it was sometimes really hard to stick to the plan but it was effective and our son now sleeps as well as our daughter and my husband and I have finally been able to get some sleep ourselves. I would absolutely recommend the team at Sleep Well!!" 

"We contacted Amanda when our daughter was about 7 months old. It had been 7 months of very frustrating nights and exhausted days. Amanda helped us figure out a plan of action for our daughter's constant night wake ups and long crying episodes. She tailored a specific schedule of sleeping and feeding that would lead to long and consistent sleep. After a few days, things started to improve and by the end of the program, we were so relieved to have consistent nights with long stretches of sleep. We went from having almost no time together at night because one of us was trying to get the baby to sleep, to being able to go out on a date and feel confident that she would be asleep for the babysitter the entire time. Amanda was so helpful and considerate of our specific goals and respected what our ideal sleep situation looked like. She was always available to address anything that came up and responded quickly with her suggestion of what to do. At our initial consultation, I was nervous that our family would be the one case that this didn't work for. However, I fully trust now that anyone who follows the schedule and stays consistent will be rewarded with a good sleeper!"

Why didn’t we try this sooner?! As we speak he is sound asleep in his crib – and has been since 7:15 pm.

Working with Shannon, I went from 2-3 wake ups every night to 1 or 0. She aligned the plan with my preferred sleep cycle. She was always coaching, never judging. Shannon was great, I have referred MANY people to her! That's the best testament to her work that I can give.
