Before meeting Megan, my third child would only sleep if she was contact sleeping or sleeping in the bed with me. Naps were non-existent and putting her to bed took over an hour. I knew I needed help, so I reached out to Megan.
Megan was able to take my concerns and develop a plan that worked, that I was comfortable with and that didn't entail leaving my daughter to cry for hours on end to eventually get herself to sleep. She gave my husband, my daughter and I strategies and often checked in to offer support and advice through the 2-weeks that we worked together.
My daughter now has developed sleep strategies where she can put herself to sleep, soothes herself, and bedtime now takes 15 minutes as opposed to over an hour. I now feel confident that she's getting the sleep she needs.
I highly recommend Megan to anyone who is having difficulty getting their child to sleep and who wants a truly gentle approach to sleep training.
We can help
Life might feel a little overwhelming right now, but we are here for you!
Healthy sleep habits lead to healthy children.
Every night do you pray to the sleep gods that this will be the night your little sleeps through the night?
You are not alone!
Did you child sleep great at one point and now you struggle to get them to sleep AND keep them asleep through the night?
Regressions, teething, exhaustion. We get it! As children get older their needs change and with that behaviors change. Unfortunately your child will not grow out of their sleep difficulties, but we have great news, they can be taught how to independently sleep, and quite quickly.
We are born to sleep. It is a biological need just like needing food and water. With that being said self-soothing and sleep are a learned skill, and we must give our children the chance to acquire these lifelong tools.
Let’s get you back on course! As tired as you feel, imagine how exhausted your little one is. All human beings need sleep, but for children it is crucial for their growth and development. You will see so many positive changes in your child and the whole family as you all get the rest you need.
Take your little one from sleepless and cranky to happy and thriving!
Is every bedtime a long drawn out battle? Does your child need you in the room for them to fall asleep?
At the end of your day the last thing you have the energy for is to spend hours trying to get your little one to go to sleep.
Toddlers are so much fun, but can be very challenging with their strong will and boundary testing. We are here to help develop healthy sleep habits, and turn bedtime into a fun time for the whole family. Sleep doesn’t have to be hard!
Sleep is essential for all human beings but especially growing children. A child’s brain is 80% developed by the age of three, and 90% by age 5. Sleep is crucial in this development. We guide you through a customized sleep plan just for your child and unique family lifestyle.
Tantrums, witching hour, short naps? We've got you!
Is it impossible to get your child out of bed for school in the morning?
Are they falling asleep during class? Wired, hyperactive, and hard to settle at night?
When children get to school age there are a lot of requirements that can change their sleep schedules. Getting up early to get to school, after school activities, sports, playdates, and homework. All of these things can take away from time where when they were younger they would have napped or been in bed earlier.
At Flourish Everyday we work together with your child to come up with an appropriate sleep plan to help fill their needs, and customize it to their unique personalities and weekly activities.
It is important as parents to understand even as your child ages they still require a certain amount of sleep each day to focus, regulate their behavior, grow and develop.
Behavioral issues and trouble in school can be signs of sleep deprivation. Contact us today.

Not sure what your child's needs are? Have questions about pediatric sleep?
Consistency, support, and being all in are definitely requirements for all our families. When you commit Flourish Everyday & the Sleep Sense™ method offer you every tool, strategy and support you will need to be successful.
We are here to support and help you . No judgement of where you have been or what you have tried before. Starting right where are now is right where you are supposed to be. Let's get started!
Sleep is pretty simple, it is a science, a biological need that human beings have to have. The Sleep Sense™ Method is based on the foundation that healthy sleep habits make for healthy children. There is no one size fits all approach. We customize each program to your unique family.
Our health approach always starts with a rooted foundation of the basics. Sleep, nutrition, and movement. Sustainable health starts with a good quality rest for the whole family.
Let's talk about the “crying” question: Since people always ask me about whether my solutions involve “crying it out,” or when parents automatically assume "Sleep training" IS crying-it-out, I want to be upfront and honest about it to ease your mind.
First of all, I will never ask you to leave your child alone, abandoned, or ignored.
Crying is your child’s voice and their ONLY way to communicate. It is healthy and natural for a child to cry when you make changes to their routine. They are allowed to communicate how they feel! Change is HARD! If a child wasn't protesting change I would ACTUALLY be worried about them. You should expect protest and communication, that you will be right by their side for.
Sleep is a biological need that children HAVE to have. You would never deprive your child of food, or allow them to run into the street, just because they cried. You set the boundaries, and behaviors to set your child up to learn this necessary skill for LIFE.
Again, understand that I will never ask you to leave your child to cry alone, nor will I ask you to ignore their cries. You can support and comfort your child through the process as much as you want, but know there will be crying, and that you and your child are fully capable of this HUGE growth moment together. I will be there as your coach supporting you every step of the way!!
