Hi! My name is Lacey Russo and I am a certified pediatric sleep consultant through the Family Sleep Institute.
I have always been a great sleeper. It just seemed to come naturally to me ever since I was a baby. I have never had trouble sleeping or staying asleep, and I took alllll that for granted. When I became a mom for the first time, I worked effortlessly reading books, blogs and taking any advice I could get my hands on in order to get sleep again. I stumbled my way through somehow until my second child was born. That is when things really began to feel overwhelming. I was tired, and grumpy and deflated. I lost my confidence in myself and as a mother. After months of feeling inadequate and like I lost myself, I had my first decent night of sleep. It was a game changer for me. I woke up and had bounce in my step and felt like the old gal I once knew! I quickly realized from that point, that sleep deprivation was keeping me from being my full self. I began doing research and learning more and more about the importance of sleep, not only for parents, but especially for children.
I was noticing that lots of the conversations that I had with other moms naturally revolved around sleep and sleep advice. I learned that many families thought it was just a way of life; to not sleep once kids were born. I was convinced there was a better way, and there is!
I help all families from 4 months to 4 years old.
The majority of my work has been with families of multiples to successfully help get their days on track and in sync, as well as achieving restful nights. I have helped well over 40 families of multiples, and I understand the uniqueness of your needs. If you have two or more babies and are seeking to find a consultant, contact me and let's talk. My experience with families just like yours will help make the changes ahead easier and empowering.
Sleep habits are taught, like any good habits, and that’s my primary focus: to eliminate sleep associations that are prohibiting consolidated sleep, and institute positive habits that will carry your littles over the years and transitions to come. I find this career so rewarding and enjoyable, which is why I only take on a small number of families a year. Each success story is a personal one for me, and I am committed to yours from the very beginning.
It is possible to sleep again. Let me show you how we can start your journey to well-rested nights!
