Healthy, Independent Sleep Skills
I give exhausted Mama’s (and Dad’s) the tools & support they need to teach their child in a supportive manner to become an independent sleeper… so Mama’s (and Dad’s) get some ‘me time’.
- WHAT IF...you knew exactly what to do when your child wakes during the night...
- WHAT IF...you had more time to do the things you loved that made you feel alive & fulfilled...
- WHAT IF...you had my support the entire 3 weeks getting your child on a healthy sleeping schedule and learning how to self-soothe themselves to sleep...
- WHAT IF...you had more evening time to relax with your significant other and chill while watching a movie or show...
- ...WITHOUT missing out on being the best (energized, loving, patient) mother you can be to your kids, or feeling overwhelmed and exhausted because you don’t know your next steps?

Help your child sleep better TONIGHT!
Hi, I’m Stephanie Heintz, proud mother and founder of New Beginnings Sleep Consulting. If you are visiting my website, chances are that you are tired, frustrated and just don’t know what to do any more. I understand because I have been there before and after 6 months of a colicky baby and countless sleepless nights, we had tried several books and tried the advice of many family members and friends without success. Finally my husband and I decided to put our pride aside and ask a sleep consultant for help and it has changed our family’s life for the better ever since. We invested in our daughter and gave her the gift and skill to sleep. As a result, our family has grown closer than ever and allowed us to focus on positive parenting.
Our experience has inspired me to combine my B. Sc. of Psychology from Northeastern University with the comprehensive Sleep Sense (TM) Program to help families get the rest they need and live happier, healthier, more balanced lives. For more than 17 years the Sleep Sense (TM) Method has empowered more than 109,000 parents to improve their children’s sleep. Just as each child is unique, our customized approach considers the unique challenges and opportunities to create an environment where the children develop their own independent sleep strategies and skills.
I love working with families to improve their quality of life through the power of restful good night’s sleep. My goal is to support families through education, experience, empowerment, trust and respect on their journey. Afterall, it is never too late to have a new beginning.
How Sleep Training Helped Us...
“We were struggling with sleep, I was up 4 times a night on a good night 8 times on a bad and there seemed to be more bad than good. Naps were beginning to be a fight. Stephanie was such a huge help, we had a plan and we had support. We are now getting 12 hours of sleep at night and a full nap again. I cannot say enough good things.”
I use The Sleep Sense frame which is proven to reach the child’s sleep goals gently but quickly for over 100,000 parents and counting. I wanted to be trained by the best in the business so I can give the best advice and guidance to parents.
My goal for you and your family is pretty simple: To get your little one sleeping through the night in his or her own bedroom.
We will do this by:
1. Having an honest and educational discussion about why sleep is so important for your child.
2. I will create specialized sleep plan for your child that is easy to follow and we discuss step by step each situation that may arise and what to do.
3. Create goals for your child and how we are going to measure and celebrate this success along the way. This will take time; success is different for every child just like each child maybe skilled in athletics, school, music, drawing, etc.
The bottom line is this: Sleep is tremendously important. It is just as important for your child as a healthy diet or loving home.
What About Crying?
Crying is your child’s way of expressing their objections to change, and you can expect that making adjustments to their sleep habits will result in some protest. Yet, when done in a loving, gentle, and respectful way your child will protest less and less. I will use a method that will be customized to suit your families needs in regards to your child’s protests.
I will NEVER ask you or your family to use the ‘cry it out’ method. I will never ask a family to leave their child alone to cry or to ignore their cries. This goes against all my values and training I have done. I will guide you through this process in a supportive manner while creating a plan that is specific to your child and families needs.
How sleep training has changed lives
We started sleep training at 3 weeks old and we are sure glad we did!
Starting this early, we didn’t have to try and break any of our sons habits and putting him to bed became a breeze before he was even a month old. He would fall asleep within 5 mins of us putting him in his crib, no fussing! By 10 weeks old, he was sleeping 9-10 hours a night. Because of Steph, I barely felt sleep deprived with a newborn baby and our son wakes up every morning with a smile on his face.
I highly recommend New Beginnings Sleep Consulting for your sleep training needs. Thank you Stephanie!!!
My husband and I were hesitant about contacting a sleep consultant as we weren’t sure anything was going to work for our little guy but we were surprised by how well he adapted to the change and is now sleeping at night.
We went from co-sleeping and nursing him 3+ times a night to him sleeping by himself in his crib. He only wakes for one feed now. (Our choice to keep a night feed). We are able to just place him in his crib and leave the room knowing he will fall asleep on his own in a reasonable amount of time.
Prior to sleep training he rarely napped longer than 20 min and would typically only nap longer stretches if we were laying with him. Now he is napping twice a day in his crib 1-2 hrs long. We are all happier and better rested!

Another Sleep Story...
“I will start off like this… I own my own business and have very high standards when I am dealing with the same small businesses. I have always been tired since my son was born and he in 2.5 years old now. Hudson literally never slept. When he was a new born I was up 20 hours out of 24 with him.
Push through 2.5 years and I broke and called Stephanie! She literally got back to me the very next day and we started working together within 3 days. Stephanie is so amazing, understanding, compassionate, detailed and really feels what we feel as broken down tired moms.
She pushed and pushed all the way through with me and I am so grateful for her. Now Hudson is having consistent naps everyday, he has a solid bed time routine and knows what to expect. He sleeps all night long.
I can not Thank her enough for everything. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY, RECOMMEND HER TO EVERYONE! CALL HER NOW!”
