Irene Makriplis is a Pediatric Sleep Consultant, 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 become 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, or reading vague sleep training books; Irene helps create a custom, targeted plan just for you and your child and works one-on-one with you to help guarantee results. Lullaby & Me also offers In-Home and Overnight Sleep Packages for families in NYC and the Tri-State Area. (In-Home Services are provided by a fully-vaccinated, CPR Certified and Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant. You can request a quote for an In-Home, here)
Irene earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the City University of New York and became a Pediatric Sleep Consultant all while nannying. She was featured in the Parenting section of the Washington Post in regards to her sleep training & parenting expertise and is listed as one of NYC's Top 10 Baby Sleep Consultants! In addition to Sleep Consulting, she also now helps others receive their Pediatric Sleep Consulting Certification.
