10 Simple Ways to Get Your Baby to Sleep Better Tonight (so you can too!)
Here are my 10 key strategies to help you get your child started with going to sleep and staying asleep independently!
I absolutely hate to see moms and dads stuck in the land of sleep deprivation when I KNOW that there’s help available that can get them unstuck! I’m here because I’ve been in your shoes and I know what it feels like to live in debilitating sleep deprivation. But I also know that there IS a way out that DOESN’T sacrifice attachment or bonding. A way that allows you to be there to comfort, reassure and assist while also teaching your baby the skill of falling asleep and staying asleep independently.
There is truly nothing more rewarding than leading a family out of sleep deprivation and into the land of oh, so satisfying sleep!
My name is Mamie Krueger. I am 51 years old and have been married for 28 years. I have 3 grown children, 2 sons and a daughter.
My passion for babies and sleep came when I had my first child and was completely unprepared for the round the clock care that a newborn required!
I fed constantly and responded to every whimper immediately with no thought as to WHY my baby was actually crying. I was up many times throughout the night and was severely sleep deprived.
Then, when he was only 9 months old I got pregnant again! I knew I needed help but didn’t know what else to do.

I honestly didn’t believe it was possible (after all I was an exclusively nursing mama and everything I read told me that nursing babies don’t sleep through the night), but then I proceeded to watch her do it with her new baby. It was amazing! I had never seen such a happy, well rested baby which in turn meant happy, well rested parents!
I started reading books that she recommended and by the time my second baby was born I had a framework for how to naturally start creating healthy sleep habits from the beginning.
That framework allowed me to be able to be proactive in creating age-appropriate structure, while still meeting all of my babies needs for food, holding, soothing and cuddling. Needless to say the difference between my two babies and my ability to manage my family was huge! With my second, I was never even sleep deprived. There was order and routine in our day and night. I was able to handle two children under 18 months better than I ever was able to handle just one baby.
Not only that but he was the happiest, most well-adjusted, content baby I had ever seen!
I knew that it was because he had a confident, rested mama and that he was getting the rest that his growing body so desperately needed. I was a much happier mom because I was well rested and I actually had time to myself during the day while both my babies were peacefully napping.
It was a win-win situation for everyone in our family. I became such a believer that I started helping other people in my circle and teaching them about establishing healthy sleep habits when their babies were young, so they could experience the rest and order with their babies that I had experienced with mine.
In 2010 a door was opened for me to turn my passion for helping other families into a career, while still being able to care for my own family and be the wife and mother that I loved so much!
I enrolled in the NCSA certification program which took my knowledge of newborns and sleep shaping to an even deeper level. From 2010- 2018 I acquired more than 15,000 hours of in home newborn care and sleep shaping experience working as a Newborn Care Specialist. This training has given me extensive hands on experience working with babies at night, teaching them the sleep fundamentals they need to sleep through the night by 12-14 weeks old.
This unique profession of being a Newborn Care Specialist has given me an invaluable skillset, unique learning opportunities and knowledge that many sleep experts lack. I started consulting with families in 2012 and have worked with hundreds of families virtually, and in-home, teaching them how to create independent sleepers.
