Krista Smith

Pediatric Sleep Consultant

"I believe every family deserves quality sleep to live happy, healthy lives!"

Krista Smith likes to give parents options to see what feels best for them when it comes to helping their little one sleep.

 

As a Pediatric Sleep Consultant she finds that when parents are supported through the sleep training process, not only do they reach their desired goal faster, but they also walk away with confidence knowing their child will sleep in any environment. 

Her breadth of experience in this field is informed by her work as a Postpartum Doula coaching parents on infant sleep, and as a Pediatric Sleep Academy certified Infant and Toddler Sleep Consultant who is helping multiple families at a given time.

"Birth has been a fascination of mine from a young age. Growing up on a small farm on the North Fork of Long Island, I was always asking questions, and often pretended that my dolls or cousins were in labor while I supported them with an emphatic "Push!". I rediscovered my passion for all things birth while on retreat in South America, and fell down the proverbial rabbit hole of the birth world." 

Krista is committed to finding and filling the gaps where families need support. She has found that the most common thread was parents needed help with sleep!

 

By working with families to help their little one sleep through the night,  she finds that stress levels are lowered leading to a happier, healthier family unit. Krista aims to teach valuable sleep skills that will carry through your little ones lifetime. 

She currently lives in upstate New York with her partner, Jeff. In her spare time, she loves hiking, teaching yoga, writing, crafting, and creating an herbal apothecary.

Review

"Krista has been a godsend helping my 8 month old sleep through the night. Before, she was waking anywhere from 10-15 times a night and within 2 nights, she's only waking once to feed. I am forever grateful!" -S.B
