Erin & Kristin came together 6 years ago - bonding over a common passion for little humans. During years of nanny experience the pair identified a common  challenge in a majority of client homes with young children - the need for support in sleep for all. The team has dedicated their practice to aiding in the solution of baby sleep, so that all can sleep.

Kristin Stennis

Co-founder Kristin cannot remember a time where she wasn’t happily surrounded by children. Born the third of seven in Chicago, her love for children would be considered both inherent and inevitable. At the age of 18, Kristin partnered with her family in helping to raise 3 infant cousins, twin boys and their younger brother. She affectionately calls them “my 3 sons”. After having a successful career as a nanny in Chicago, Kristin moved to NY to broaden her horizons. Her outgoing personality and intuitiveness has been instrumental in her ability to uniquely connect with children and parents. Kristin’s professional background in theatre and the arts has enhanced her ability to be creative, empathetic, and a collaborator. She counts it a huge privilege to support families on their individual journey.
