I'm Janine an OCN Level 5 Certified Sleep Practitioner, owner of The Bedtime Champ Baby Sleep Consultancy, and Mum of two based in South-East London.
During my early 20s I spent time as a live-in nanny in Italy, Spain and the UK caring for children aged between 1 to 10 years of age. I eventually settled working at the UK's biggest online community for parents: Mumsnet. I worked at Mumsnet for 12 years.
It goes without saying that parenting in 2023 is hard - there's the added pressure of having to be and do everything. Having to often work full time, and raise a family and often without a support network close by.
During my time at Mumsnet, I saw the power and value in online communities where our 'village' was otherwise unavailable. But I also saw the confusion and overwhelm caused by mixed and conflicting information online. The polarizing debates were anxiety-inducing.
When it comes to sleep there seems to be the same age-old debate: you either sleep train with CIO methods, or you bedshare. There seems to be no in-between.
With this course, I seek to give you step-by-step methods and strategies that are evidence-based, responsive and gentle.
This course gives you all the vital information to be able to change and improve your child's sleep habits in a more responsive way.
