Feel stuck because neither the 'suck-it-up-and-wait' or 'cry-it-out' approaches work for your family? You are in the right place!
Meet Bonnie - Your Denver Baby and Child Sleep Consultant
Bonnie Dimmick is a Child Sleep Consultant and Positive Discipline Parent Educator who focuses on respectful parenting and sleep strategies to help babies, toddlers and young children learn to sleep independently.
Hi! I’m Bonnie and I’m so glad you are here!
I help families create sustainable independent sleep habits for your children so the whole family can get more sleep, allowing parents to be more present and patient while enjoying your children. This enables parents like you to gain predictability in your lives and stop worrying about how nights and naps will go. My holistic approach leaves families getting the sleep you need and parents feeling confident that you can meet your child’s needs for sleep and connection and in your ability to be the parents you want to be.
I work with families in Denver, all around Colorado, across the US and around the world who are struggling with their baby’s and children’s sleep. These families are struggling with unsustainable sleep habits that leave everyone feeling grumpy, stressed and exhausted each day. They feel stuck because neither the ‘suck-it-up-and-wait’ or the ‘cry-it-out’ approaches to sleep work for their families.
Working together, parents are able to find that middle ground that fits their unique family while achieving the game-changing results of better sleep, more present and patient parenting and feeling like themselves again.
Helping sleepy parents like you is my passion
I have been helping exhausted and discouraged families create sustainable sleep habits for over three and half years. I am a member of the Association of Professional Sleep Consultants and have trained and mentored under one of the top six pediatric sleep consultant training programs recognized by the APSC. Additionally, I am a member of the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants.
I am a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator which allows me to weave positive parenting strategies into each of my sleep plans. I have completed the RIE® Foundations Theory and Observation Intensive Training on Educaring™, respectful caregiving and parenting in the first 2 years of life. In addition, I completed training on breastfeeding and sleep, attachment theory, regulation theories and child development and other continuing education through the Child Sleep Institute.
I’ve been in your shoes
When my oldest daughter was born, I fell prey to the troubling parenting myth that becoming a mom would mean sacrificing my reliance on, and love, of a good night’s sleep. Then, my baby was struggling with sleep, waking every two hours needing my help to put her back to sleep and not napping for more than 30 minutes during the day.
I knew something had to change and when I found the help we needed, we jumped in with both feet. We were all sleeping better and I was a more patient, compassionate and strong momma for my daughter.
But then, baby #2 entered the world and she was a totally different baby than my first. She opened my eyes to a whole new, much more complex world of approaches to help babies and toddlers sleep better. She helped develop the respectful, connection-focused and holistic approach to sleep that I share with families today.
What would be different for you and your family if you were sleeping better?
