I'm Kristi Roberts, a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant living in Columbus, Ohio with my husband and two wonderful little girls.
When my oldest was an infant, I struggled to get her to nap well and sleep through the night. Naps had become a battle of wills (which I often lost) and I started to dread the nights. I was frustrated and worse yet, my little one was frustrated.
I had read books, taken advice from my family and friends, and spent hours googling "Why doesn’t my child sleep?" during the middle of the night. I was afraid that getting my child to sleep well was going to mean endless crying or that I would have to give up parts of our cherished routine. I felt like I had tried everything yet nothing was working.
I knew something had to change so finally I contacted a sleep consultant. During this process, I realized that the books, advice and internet were not able to provide me with a step by step plan that was developed for MY child and MY family.
After implementing the personalized plan, I felt empowered, well-rested and proud that I had been able to help my child get the sleep she needed.
Before I knew it, my friends were looking to me for sleep advice. With my knowledge and expertise, I began helping others solve their sleep challenges and then decided to become a sleep consultant myself.
I received my certification from the Family Sleep Institute (FSI) in 2016 after completing over 250 hours of required coursework.
I know first-hand that getting your child to sleep can be challenging but it doesn’t have to be. Not only do we reap the benefits of being a well-rested family but I am privileged to work with families near and far so they too can get the sleep they need to achieve their dreams.

What is sleep consulting?
Sleep consulting is a partnership between you, your child and a trained sleep expert to help your family get the sleep you need to achieve your dreams.
There is a science to sleep and all parts must be considered for success. Although there are numerous books on sleep approaches, they are not able to provide a personalized plan that considers your family’s philosophies and needs.
Every child is unique and we will work together to develop a plan that is best suited for your child and your family.
When you are exhausted, the knowledge, experience and one on one support of a sleep consultant can make a world of a difference. As your sleep consultant, I will assess your child’s sleep challenges and together we will develop a personalized sleep plan containing the best approach for your family.
Support packages provide you with daily communication, encouragement, and evaluation of your child’s sleep log to help you achieve long term success.
