For many bleary-eyed parents of infants and toddlers, sleep is a seemingly unobtainable goal. Lori Brier Strong ’98, a Certified Infant and Child Sleep Consultant based out of Austin, Texas, is helping to change that, one family at a time.
“If the child’s not sleeping well, the family’s not sleeping well,” she said, “and that can lead to such problems when everyone is exhausted!” Strong works with parents to establish a sleep routine that is individually tailored to each family’s situation. She noted that, once they make changes, most see progress pretty quickly.
