My name is Meaghan Lussier, owner of Time For Bed Sleep Solutions. I reside in La Salle, Manitoba, a suburb of Winnipeg with my family. As a Certified Sleep Consultant, I am dedicated to helping parents learn the skills to teach their children to become independent, healthy sleepers. I have two little ones, and strongly believe that well-rested children are happy, energetic, active and ready to learn.
I have been in your shoes!
My husband and I welcomed our son, Vincent into the world, not knowing much (if anything) about infants’ sleep needs. He fell into a pattern of nursing to sleep, and eventually after six months of sleeping in three hour stretches, I became exhausted, frustrated and anxious. Vincent’s sleep issues were no fault of his own, it was that I didn’t understand his needs and the effect of negative sleep associations. After six long months, we decided we needed to make a change!
my search for a solution..
During my search, I read many different books that seemed to contradict each other. One told me to let him ‘cry it out’, one said to respond at his every whimper. Family members told me that he would grow out of it. I felt completely lost. I committed to a simple plan and began implementing it the next day. Within a few days, Vincent was going to bed at 7 P.M. with little to no fussing and was sleeping 12 hour nights. Finally! My husband and I had our evenings back and started to reconnect as a couple, which had suffered during our bout of sleeplessness!
When my daughter Sophie was born two years later, I found that I fell back into the same habits. My girl, who began as a great sleeper was having trouble settling into sleep and waking multiple times during the night. When she was five months old, we hired a Sleep Consultant. The information that she provided was not a surprise, but this time, it was the support I needed. I took comfort knowing that I had someone to support us every step of the way while we worked with Sophie to improve her sleep habits.
learning the ropes..
After completing an extensive training and mentoring program with the creator of the Sleep SenseTM Program, I launched Time For Bed Sleep Solutions and began offering professional advice and custom sleep training packages to families all across the country. I am also a member of the Association of Professional Sleep Consultants, an organization that provides professional standards, a wealth of information, networking and professional opportunities, and personal growth for professional sleep consultants all over the world.
My experiences with sleep deprivation provides invaluable perspective, ensuring that your are provided with comprehensive support and guidance along the way to a great night’s sleep. ‘It’s time for bed.’
I look forward to meeting your family,
Owner, Time for Bed Sleep Solutions
