I have felt pretty defeated lately, but this course is helping me get back to feeling empowered in motherhood. Thank you for that gift. 

I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Tonight I watched the video on what is NOT normal, and I finally had the confirmation and affirmation I have been searching for. My son is almost 10 months old and he wakes up after 1-2 hours CONSTANTLY. I thought I had done everything wrong because he nurses to sleep, but your course has helped me understand that there is something much deeper going on! And if we had done CIO we wouldn’t have had the chance to investigate that, and his needs wouldn’t be met.  Until that video I was encouraged by how much we are doing “right”, but I couldn’t understand how we weren’t seeing results. I am an avid googler, but this is the first time in MONTHS that I have something new to try (that isn’t CIO), and I cannot even tell you how encouraging and motivating that is!

Hey there! I’m Valerie.

As a child & family therapist specialized in mental health & sleep -- I work with families to improve their child’s sleep without resorting to cry-it-out methods (of any kind!!)  that may compromise their child’s needs and undermine a parent’s own beliefs.

Using my background in psychology and social work including my Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Toronto, I became a child and family mental health therapist focused on children 0-6 years old.   I have extensive experience supporting parent-child relationships and children’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.   I’m trained and certified in infant and child mental health, postpartum and maternal mental health, parenting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment Focused Therapies just to name a few! 

I’m a real-life mom who has struggled with her baby’s sleep just like you. I created Talkin’ Sleep’s Baby Sleep Essentials to kickstart your personal journey to a rested night’s sleep free of guilt, shame, or regret knowing your top priority is still your baby.  I’ve worked with hundreds of families, and I can say with confidence that you absolutely can get better sleep without sleep training.

The course gave me relief knowing that sleep training isn’t the only way to help improve baby’s sleep.

The course content provides great insight on baby sleep, what’s normal and what really could be going on when baby is waking up multiple times or having short naps. I have taken two other sleep courses before this and I feel like I finally found one that provides insight into baby’s sleep behaviour. The course gave me relief knowing that sleep training isn’t the only way to help improve baby’s sleep.


"I love how you put baby and his/her needs first, without question.
If something needs to change for the parents (e.g. rocking is causing back pain), you always approach it from the baby's point of view and how to accommodate that in a way that's best for baby. Because that's what we all want as parents, what's best for our little one!

Furthermore, as a scientist myself, I love that your course is based on research and science on what is biologically normal and appropriate for them. Although our son is a pretty good sleeper, it just makes me feel that much more confident to have the course as a resource when we do hit a bump in the road, or when he seems to be changing his habits (as they seem to do very frequently)."


I am SO HAPPY I found this course

I wish it had existed when I was pregnant or at the very least in the newborn stage of my parenting journey. The information provided is fundamental to understanding your baby's sleep, yes, but this course goes beyond that.

I feel like a better, more present and mindful parent having followed it. I love the way the course is divided; the sections build on each other and the content is easily consumed. It really helps you have realistic expectations surrounding your baby's sleep and paving the path for sustainable sleep routines that are compatible with your family.

The course also has a great section regarding normal and abnormal sleep disruptors and how to "fix" them, if you will. I feel like I now have the tools to help adapt and adjust as baby grows older. As a sidenote, I tried a cheaper baby sleep course a few months back and it was horrid. And now, I feel empowered and that is a rare gift from an internet course 😉

Learning and meeting the needs of individual babies is what I’m all about, and you won’t find that level of personalized attention with just any sleep program.

I want desperate parents to know that there is an alternative to crying-it-out and actual baby sleep science--that takes into account your whole baby--supports these gentle methods.

That’s why I set out to show people a different way of improving baby sleep, and well, it’s working…

My sleep support method is giving families their confidence back, one program at a time. 

Is Baby Sleep Essentials the right solution for your family?

Here's a little check to see...

🎉 You’re a first parent and have no clue what the heck to do when it comes to sleep but believe that your can't spoil your baby with  love and connection

🎉 This isn't your first rodeo, but you cried it out with your last child(ren) and are NOT doing that again and wants to do things differently
🎉 You question things that don't sit well with your gut, and tend not to do things the same way as your parents (because science has evolved!)

🎉 You want to parent using your intuition but need support when it feels like now one in your personal circle understands your decisions need some extra encouragement
🎉 You want to feel confident in knowing that you’re doing what’s best for your baby because every decision feels like a guessing game
🎉 You’re willing to accept that normal infant sleep doesn't always mean uninterupted sleep while wanting to do  what you can to maximize your baby’s (and family's) sleep

This is not the course for you if...

⛔ You want someone to come in and save the night by telling you exactly how to "fix" everything and provide your with a step by step plan of action

⛔ You want to put your baby in the crib and walk out (while this is entirely possible without sleep training - we can't guearantee it would happen due to individual differences)

⛔ You’re looking for a “magic” solution to your family's sleep situation that's instantly going to change your life (I hate to tell you – it doesn’t exist!)

⛔ You want your baby to fall asleep completely independently without any soothing, rocking, touch or breastfeeding

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Baby Sleep Essentials is delivered in short (5-15 minute) videos explaining what you need to know to make changes right away. It’s a self-paced course that allows you to go directly to the content that is relevant to you. With lifetime access to the course, you can return to content over and over as your baby (or your family) grows.

Sanity Solution (the one-to-one component is completed on your own time, too and you get to choose whether you'd like the follow up support to be over meetings or emails) 

I am confident that my course will work for your baby. The content is based on the most pressing questions I receive from parents in their baby’s first year. I change and update the course content based on feedback from parents like you! Sanity Solution includes our team carefully reviewing your information and preparing an individualized plan to make sure it works for your individual baby!

No. You will never be asked to leave your baby to cry for any length of time or reason. You will never be asked to ignore your intuition. You will not be taught to teach your baby to sleep. (It is a biological function after all!) 

This course helps get your baby down to the minimum number of night wakings that still meets their needs in an age appropriate way. For some babies this will be a full night, but other babies may still wake at night and require a quick feed or resettling. I’ve designed this course to help you eliminate the root of what is causing wake-ups, but I would be weary of trusting any sleep courses that guarantee a certain number of hours of sleep. 

The course is designed for the first year (0-12 months), but the content is relevant up to 18 months. However, if your baby is over 13+ months, it may be better to wait for my toddler sleep course.

If you’re using my free content and it’s working for you, that’s great! Many families still find they need additional information and resources to make an impact on their baby’s sleep. My online course offers more specific actionable steps addressing a much wider variety of topics than you might see featured on my social media accounts. 

No, this course does not cover night weaning. We do cover it in this webinar.

This course is designed to help you guide your baby to their best possible sleep by focusing on the things that are in your control. This includes their environment, expanding knowledge of their own unique personality and needs, having realistic expectations, balancing household schedules, and identifying the reasons for sleep disruptions. If there is a known medical issue that is causing a sleep disruption, treating the condition should be your first step in that process. IF you would like guidance on what exactly is causing the sleep disruption and which professonal can help - this is the course for you!
