You're not alone

Chrissy Tiegen said it best: “Why is it so hard to put someone who is already sleepy to sleep?”

In fact, one in three families report struggling with their child’s sleep, and if baby ain’t sleeping, ain’t nobody sleeping. The average parent loses 44 days of sleep in the first year of their child’s life.

Forty. Four. Days.

Infants and children don’t sleep like adults, and the tricks we try to help put them to sleep can unintentionally lead to irritability and sleepless nights.

But with the right science & tools, small steps can help our kiddos learn to take giant sleeps — and keep the fam's lost sleep to a minimum.

"Her approach was gentle and empowering and I feel like I now have the tools to navigate this stage of my daughter’s sleep patterns — and the next — since we are laying a great foundation."

Foundation courses

Our foundation courses demystify infant and child sleep by unpacking the science of sleep, empowering you to troubleshoot sleep problems and even prevent them!

These aren't sleep training courses — often, families find that with the right foundation, sleep training isn't necessary. But, we'll cover a variety of methods so you can choose what's right for your family.

All our courses are self-paced so you can learn on your own schedule (well, and baby's!). And because our mission is to make sleep education accessible to everyone, if price is a barrier please send us an email for sliding scale pricing.

"She helped me with all three of my kids...She set up specific plans for each child and helped me figure out how to work on them simultaneously...she taught me so much about sleep that I didn't learn from all the sleep books and advice I've gotten."

~ Tracey, Columbus OH

The Small Steps Story

After 4 months, my family and I were desperate. We’d tried everything: the blogs, the vlogs, and all the books. Our kiddo just wouldn’t sleep, and it seemed like nobody had any answers...until a Google search led to one small call.

An infant and child sleep consultant gave us our dreams back.

Now, Small Steps is on a mission to make sleep education free for everyone. Read more about why we charge now, and our journey to get to free.
