Thank you for your interest! My name is Sarah Knapp, and I started helping families with newborns as a postpartum doula over 4 years ago in the Dallas area. I quickly saw the need to offer support and tools to help their babies start out with great sleep habits, and to help them troubleshoot sleep challenges as they grew and changed.
After doing lots of research and helping families hands on, day and night, as we worked through many different aspects of gentle sleep training, I realized this would be a great service to offer families who mostly wanted to carry out the plans themselves. So, here we are! I would love to support and empower you with the tools to help your baby to sleep better through the night, and take great naps during the day.
I have worked with both twins and single babies of many ages, and I would be happy to help you, whether you have one child or more. Since we can communicate through email and phone, I can support you whether you live in Chicago, San Diego, Philadelphia, or Europe. I would love to help you no matter where you live.
I believe in using gentle methods to help children sleep better, and I will never push you into making your child cry it out. I don’t intend to do that with my children, either. There may be some tears, but you can be right there with your child, helping him through the transition.
“Thanks for the encouragement. I think I would have given up by now if I wasn’t being held accountable to someone and LOTS of praying!!!!!!! I hope you know what a difference it makes in my life if they sleep, I have lost 15 pounds—I have the energy to work out (which they think is hilarious and it didn’t happen this past week) . AND most importantly, they are the sweetest babies ever when they have had rest. They can play with each other every waking moment. They are sitting in the living room now talking back and forth with excitement, almost like they never met!!!!
Thank you so much for your help, you have made a tremendous difference in our home and we would gladly recommend you to anyone who needs help with sleep coaching. “

“They are BIG babies! They have been sleeping through the night since they were 6 weeks old. You really helped them to get on a routine. “
