After becoming a mom, I learned that there is truly nothing that can prepare you for the journey into motherhood, especially when it comes to sleep, or should I say, the lack there of. My husband and I struggled those first 6-8 weeks of my son’s life as most parents do. Our sleep seemed non-existent. Our son Owen finally started to sleep longer stretches of 5, 6, and even 7 hours during the night! We saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Then it hit, the dreaded 4-month sleep regression. It is a REAL THING! Owen went from a good sleeper to progressively getting worse until he was waking up every hour during the night! It was also getting harder and harder to sooth him at each waking. At this point Owen was 6.5 months old and I was desperate for answers. The whole family needed sleep and I was determined to find a way to help my son. That’s exactly what I did and it was life changing!
What I found is that there are ways to help your child learn independent sleep skills without feeling mom guilt. Once I understood what was happening, I felt guilty for not helping him sooner! Watching Owen’s transition and how it has changed our lives is what has led me on the journey of helping other families get the quality sleep that they deserve.
My name is Katie Kuncho and I live in Jacksonville, Fl with my husband Rodney and our son, Owen. I have a BS in Merchandising & Business. After graduating from Georgia Southern University, I went on to a successful career in management working my way up the company ladder. I was promoted to multiple roles heavily emphasized in customer service during my career. After having my son and discovering my passion for sleep, I stepped away from my career and started my journey to becoming a certified sleep consultant.
During my certification, I trained side-by–side with world-renowned sleep expert Dana Obelman, founder of The Sleep Sense™Program. This program started in 2007 and has helped over 100,000 parents get better sleep. I chose to acquire my certification through the Sleep Sense™ Program because it is based on methods that are customizable for each family. Also the certification program is the most extensive in the world. With my background in customer service, my certification education, and being a mom myself, I am prepared to give you exceptional service and proven results!
