*Strategies and ways to help your big kid adjust after the new arrival.

 

Meet Brooke: 

Twelve years ago, Brooke Nalle was teaching 7th grade at Bank Street’s School for Children and not sleeping because her delicious, interesting, and interested son was keeping her up all night. As she worked to solve her family’s problem (which only grew trickier when her daughter was born), she dove deeper into the world of sleep science, behavioral science, and child development.

After solving her own family’s sleep problems, Brooke trained with Kim West and was one of the first 50 Gentle Sleep Coaches. Today, nearly seven years later, Brooke has helped more than 1,000 families.

Brooke’s training includes basic counseling and child development, sleep science and behavioral modification techniques, secure attachment theory, and supporting the breastfeeding mom.  She has an Ms Ed from Bank Street College of Education, specialized training in 4- and 5-month-old babies, and extensive experience with multiples.

She has participated in lectures from top specialists in the areas of postpartum depression, medical conditions and sleep apnea in children, and sensory processing disorders and sleep.

As a mother of three, Brooke deeply understands the role that parents play in welcoming a new member to your family and just how sibling relationships can be.
