Not everyone knows what schedule their baby should follow, nor do they know how to react when their little one wakes up in the middle of the night and cries to be held, rocked, or nursed back to sleep. Or when your toddler roams into your room in the middle of the night. Bad sleeping habits go on and on and when you don't commit to a change, bad habits will continue. When your child relies on you to fall asleep it can get quite exhausting! Good restorative  sleep is what both you and your child need. My sleep consulting services and packages can help you achieve this!


The Importance of SLEEP

Restful, Uninterrupted Sleep is what babies and children need to develop properly into healthy adults. Heck, it's what you need too!

Not getting adequate amount of sleep can disrupt everyday life and throw you and your baby off balance. Lack of sleep can affect mood, behavior, physical, and emotional development. It can also lead to anxiety, depression, obesity and other health issues.

There is no such thing as having a "bad" sleeper. Every baby is capable of being a great sleeper if you just allow them the opportunity. So let me help begin sleep training and let's get your child on the right path for success! 

They deserve it and so do you!


What does a Consultation consist of?

I conduct an evaluation of your baby's sleep habits through a sleep questionnaire and conclude what needs to be worked on. I use the knowledge from experience, science and research to help create a targeted sleep plan customized for your baby's needs. As an sleep consulting expert, I give you sleep training methods will work best for your baby's age, temperament, situation and of course take in to consideration what  you are comfortable with as a parent.

My Sleep Plans include everything from bedtime routine, night wakings, nap training, day time schedule, sleep environment, and a few options of sleep training techniques that will be best suited for your family. All my packages also include follow-up support and guidance so that I can ensure you know how to respond to your child properly to yield results. 

For parents that feel they need me to be there for that extra hands-on help. I also have Overnight and Live-in Sleep Training options to help guarantee success and improvement in your child's sleep.

Even though I can help parents worldwide through email, phone and Skype. In-Home Services are for families in the NYC area.

About Irene Makriplis

Irene Makriplis is a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant and founder of Lullaby & Me. Irene developed a passion for helping parents with their children’s sleep over her 10 year career as a nanny. She realized that every child’s situation is different and each child responds differently to various sleep training methods. Parents sometimes get overwhelmed and when one technique doesn’t seem to be working, they give up. It’s important to understand sleep training is not a “one method fits all” solution. 


Irene uses her knowledge and experience to evaluate your child’s sleep habits. She identifies their sleep issue and which sleep training method would be best suited for their age, temperament and sleep environment. She then gives a detailed plan and provides support and guidance through the sleep training process to help ensure parents are responding appropriately, following an age appropriate schedule and making any necessary tweaks along the way.


Unlike taking broad and impersonal Infant/Toddler Sleep Education courses, Irene helps create a custom, targeted plan just for you and your child and works one-on-one with you to help guarantee results.

Irene earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the City University of New York and became a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant at the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting. She was also featured in the Parenting section of the Washington Post in regards to her sleep training expertise.
