Our Sound Sleeper, Rosemary Greisman

As a mom of four children, I know how important it is to have a good night's sleep. With over 20 years experience working with infants and children, and a passion for babies, I am committed to helping you solve your child's sleep challenges in a way that fits your parenting style. I founded Our Sound Sleeper to empower parents with the tools that will give them the confidence to raise happy children. Through my consultation services I design a plan that is suitable for parents struggling with sleep. I also cover all key topics — feeding, napping, bathing and anything else that is relevant. I provide my clients with daily friendly, non- judgmental coaching so that ultimately, parents know that they’re the boss! I’m available for private consultation in the GTA and can be reached at 416-616-8855. Through this blog I’d like to help parents by answering questions related to sleep. Please e-mail them and I will answer them as best as I can. I am here to help you and your family to sleep soundly.
