About The Baby Sleep Site® and Nicole Johnson, Pediatric Sleep Consultant in Columbus, Ohio
My name is Nicole Johnson and I am the founder and Lead Pediatric Sleep Consultant of The Baby Sleep Site® founded in 2008. We are based in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio and I’m proud to say my team and I have been working with families for over 15 years!
I have personally worked directly with tens of thousands of families, been quoted over 50 times in media, appeared on numerous television interviews, and have been a guest on countless podcasts/shows. I was named one of Tuck’s Best Sleep Consultants in 2021, and I am an expert reviewer on MomJunction and Sleep Advisor.
Although I care more about getting to know you, I know you want to know a bit about me and how I can help you with your baby or toddler. So, here’s a bit about me…
When my eldest son was a baby, he had a lot of sleep problems! Sleep like a baby? Yeah, right! I 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 and I was getting depressed. All the books contradicted one another and my son was simply NOT textbook!
Over time, 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 non-textbook son’s sleeping issues in a way that matched my own parenting style, and I knew it was my mission to help other tired parents who were in a similar situation as I had been.
I started out by leading a message board and helped countless parents like you overcome their own sleeping challenges much quicker and faster than I had. Then, after many parents asked me to write my own book because of my communication style, I created this website over 15 years ago, 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! After working personally with thousands of parents over the years, along with the many testimonials from parents worldwide, I am honored to be the sleep expert featured in over 50 press articles, awarded a “best sleep consultant” title in 2021 by Tuck, and joined MomJunction‘s expert panel in 2023.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from UC Berkeley in Berkeley, CA, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. I have also held a position on the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC) board since 2015. The IACSC strives to ensure sleep consultants have an adequate background to be professional sleep consultants. 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.
Ready to Start Your Journey?
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.
I look forward to meeting you soon!

P.S. Oh, and I grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles, California but have now lived in the midwest in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio for over 20 years. I live with my husband and two teenage boys. Some of my hobbies and passions (besides my kids and The Baby Sleep Site!) include eating healthy and working out. I enjoy running 5Ks with a friend about once a month though I’m not super fast. That’s okay! We can always keep striving for improvement no matter our age or capabilities!
P.P.S. With my job, I don’t get to take a lot of time off (since babies don’t take vacations from non-sleeping!) but I do love to travel and seek some adventure with two growing boys any time the opportunity presents itself (about once a year during our “slower” season)! Here I am ziplining which was super fun! I look forward to getting to know you, too, so I hope you reach out!
