Susie Parker is a certified Sleep Consultant and founder of Sleep Baby Love, Child Sleep Consulting. She is a “been there done that” mom of two beautiful girls who have had her deal with many sleep challenges head on.
I’m Susie Parker, Certified Sleep Consultant and founder of Sleep Baby Love, child sleep consulting. I help babies, toddlers and preschoolers learn to love sleep. I’m a mom of two girls 3 & 5 and live in Chicago.
I always wanted to start my own business but unfortunately, it was my horrible sleeping second child that was the reason I took the leap. I went through a pretty tough few months holding my baby trying to get her to sleep while googling everything I could to get her to sleep with the other hand. Thankfully my sleep obsession was born and I realized how important it was to support parents going through a tough time.
What are some of your favorite go to meals when time is tight and dinner MUST get on the table?
I sometimes get so involved with work that I often think at 5:15 what to make for 5:30 pm. The staples of the summer have been a quick salad (thanks to my summer subscription to our local CSA) and quesadillas.
I love Facebook and all of the business groups (Boss-Moms, of course!). I love to hear the motivational stories of others and love having an easy place to ask my business related questions.
I love SPI (where I found Dana) and Amy Porterfield’s podcast gives a ton of value. I just found out that my favorite non-business related bloggers (Young House Love) just started a podcast and I expect that many hours will be spent listening to them too. So many podcasts, so little time!
