My name is Nicole Johnson and I am a married mother of two wonderful boys, as well as the Lead Sleep Consultant and owner of The Baby Sleep Site® founded over 10 years ago.
When my eldest son was a baby, he had a lot of sleep problems. Sleep like a baby? Yeah, right! You had better hope you never sleep like my baby did. He would wake up every one or two hours, all night long. I had to do so much to get him through the night.
By thoroughly researching the key literature and scientific reports, I became an expert in sleep methods, scheduling routines, baby’s development needs and more. I overcame my son’s sleeping issues in a way that matched my own parenting style, and knew it was my mission to help other tired parents “find their child’s sleep.”
I started by leading an Internet-based message board and helped countless parents just like you overcome their own sleeping challenges much quicker and faster than I had. I then created this website in 2008 and expanded my offerings to include e-books, articles, a blog, and personalized sleep consulting. The feedback from around the world has been incredible!
I have also held a position on the board for the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC) since 2015. The IACSC strives to ensure sleep consultants have an adequate background to be a professional sleep consultant. The IACSC also provides continuing education to its members in areas that influence sleep practices such as child psychology, nutrition, child development, and many others as it pertains to sleep.
I would love to help you with your challenge. Know that I never offer one-size-fits-all advice or pass judgment on your parenting philosophies. I incorporate who you are and what your child is undergoing to create a unique service. And, I will give you the support you need to see your challenge through to the end.

Meet My Team of Sleep Consultants
Service is a top priority at The Baby Sleep Site® and our primary goal is to provide you with a high-quality Personalized Sleep Plan®, sound advice, quick turnaround, compassion, and support. Our sleep consultants go through extensive training on The Baby Sleep Site® methodologies, philosophies, and processes, prior to working directly with clients. Once they are ready, we collaborate as a team such that any of our sleep consultants will create Personalized Sleep Plans®, answer follow-up questions, provide support, and celebrate your sleep successes! Once you are assigned a sleep consultant, you will most likely always have that sleep consultant for continuity purposes, except for illness or other time off, so you will always receive quick and consistent response time. As founder and president of The Baby Sleep Site®, I am the lead sleep consultant. All sleep consultants work directly with me to give you the very best service. You do not just get a sleep consultant, but a team of advisers – your village – all on your side.
We do try to honor requests for a specific sleep consultant should you have a preference, but it may not always be possible. Due to time limitations, as the owner and lead sleep consultant, I do love to work with families and do take new clients each month, but I can’t take each and every new family myself. Please get to know more about our other wonderful sleep consultants below.

She has worked as a lawyer in both the private and non-profit sector, but mostly in the not-for-profit sector helping families facing in crisis. She has always had a passion for problem-solving and helping others so moving into sleep consulting has been a natural transition.

Early on, Danielle found The Baby Sleep Site® and was eventually able to get her son’s sleep on track.
