Sleep seems so natural. But sometimes our children have trouble learning to fall asleep.

What if your child can only fall asleep if they are being walked, rocked, or nursed? What if they need these rituals repeated each time they awake throughout the night?

What if she needs to bed-share but that isn’t letting you get the sleep you so desperately need?

What if you don’t want to leave him alone to “cry it out”?

There is a better, healthier, less stressful, and safer way for you both.

If you are tired, frustrated and keep asking yourself “What can I do? How can I help my little one learn this basic and essential part of life in a loving and supportive way?” I can help.


Joan Canning

My name is Joan. I am a Certified Sleep Coach helping families in Fresno/Clovis, CA.

I became a Certified Postpartum Doula (DONA, Int) in 2007 and then a Certified Lactation Educator (UCSD) in 2009.

When I decided I wanted to be a sleep consultant and eventually run Sleepytime Support, I chose to get trained with the Gentle Sleep Coach Program because the GSC is the most comprehensive training around. The methods used are in line with what I use on a personal and professional level.

I graduated from my GSC training in May 2019 and progressed to the Advanced Program a month later where I continue to maintain my certification and fine tune my skills and techniques through ongoing specialized training and education.

I created Sleepytime Support to help families like yours navigate through infant, toddler, and child sleep issues.


Together…

We can get you and your child the sleep you both need and deserve.


All families are different, all children respond to learning new skills differently. Sleep learning is a not a one size fits all strategy. What works for your child may not work for another. Success with any plan depends on your ability to commit and follow through with unity, patience and consistency.
