It has been stated that a well-rested family is a happy family. I have experienced first hand the struggles of sleepless nights and the relief that comes when little ones are finally achieving healthy sleep patterns. When our daughter was born, we experienced several sleepless months, which felt like years as we tried to “get through it.” However, it was not until our son was born that we truly felt the mounting stress of months and months of nightly wake-ups and early morning awakenings. We started to feel more desperate as our son turned ten months old and we were still waiting for him to “sleep thru the night” consistently.

We tried numerous approaches to try and work thru the sleep problems ourselves, but it was not until we sought help through Sleep Well Sleep Specialists that we were finally able to see progress! The anxiety and stress we felt each night was replaced with a sense of empowerment that we could help our son learn the skills needed for healthy sleep.  These experiences inspired me to want to help more families to sleep well night after night.

My name is Jaimie Burns and I am a Pediatric Sleep Specialist and so grateful to be a member of the Sleep Well Children Consultation team! I have a Psy. D. in Clinical Psychology and I have been working with individuals and families for over ten years in multiple settings. After my own positive experiences working with a sleep consultant, I became trained through a combination of the Sleep Sense training program and extensive education and mentoring from Sleep Well Sleep Specialists.

I am dedicated to helping families find the path to healthier sleep. I am available to provide one on one consultations, webinars, and in-house coaching or support as needed to manage children’s sleep struggles so that your family can once again feel well rested.

Here is what clients are saying about working with Jaimie

"Thank you so much for your help all the way! Jaimie absolutely changed our life! Before the training, we were not able to sleep longer than one hour at night for 6.5 months. We were so tired and frustrated. I even think I would be fired from my job because I was really lacking energy at work in the daytime. The plan Jaimie gave us was amazing! Our baby slept for 10 hours on the 3rd night! It is magical! We finally have our own time and have started to enjoy life again. Babies need to sleep, some need to be sleep trained to learn how to sleep well. For their own health and for the health of their parents. We appreciate your help and have recommended you to many friends who have babies with sleep issues."

"Jaimie at Sleep Well brought sleep into our lives again! We contacted Jaimie when our daughter was about 13 months old. She had not slept through a night, was nursed at least 2-3 times a night and always ended up in our bed. She also took very short naps. As a working mom, a part of me didn't mind since we got extra snuggle time at night. Also as a working mom part of me minded a lot know...sleep matters! Jaimie shared a plan tailored to our daughter that in the end had her sleeping in her crib the entire night AND falling asleep on her own. Her naps are now scheduled and consistent. At the same time, Jaimie, was very sensitive to how these changes might be difficult as we lost that special time at night but we did find other ways to find that. We would definitely recommend Sleep Well to anyone needing a little help doing just that, getting sleep!  Thanks Jaimie!"

"Jaimie and Sleep Well were PHENOMENAL! We adored working with her, not only because she was so helpful and knowledgeable, but because she really took time to listen to us, our lifestyle, our needs for our baby, and our specific sleep challenges. She then custom built a plan that was perfect for our baby, knowing his needs, age and overall sleep habits. Within a week our son was sleeping so much better, going from 2 feeds a night to one feed only. And the best part, he was putting himself back to sleep during his night wakings! We could not recommend Jaimie and Sleep Well more-they have helped my husband and I put some sanity back into our lives!"

"Jaimie and the Sleep Well program did wonders for our little guy. We had our son regimented with naps but no matter how diligent we were, nights were awful. We were waking up every 3 hours, feeding 2x's per night, sometimes more with our 6 months old and occasionally co-sleeping. We are both full time working parents and lucky to sleep a 3 hour clip. It was extremely trying, emotionally and mentally. On our first phone call with Jaimie, she have us a list of 6 goals for our son. After she finished reading them off to us, we both were nearly laughing with skepticism. Sure enough, 2-3 nights later my husband and I were staring at each other in disbelief. Our son had slept from approximately 7:30pm to 6:30am since night 2 of the sleep plan. No more night feeds and when he does wake he self-soothes himself back to sleep after a few minutes. It turns out we needed the training as much as he did. It has been over three weeks now and we're still in disbelief. Pinch me! We are forever grateful for the guidance and support." 

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.
