Hi, I’m Tracie Kesatie,
Certified Gentle Sleep Coach®, founder of Rest Well Baby, mother of four, and yes, sleepless-nights ‘survivor’…
Helping your child get the rest they need isn’t a nameless, faceless mission for me. My journey with gentle sleep coaching started with my first baby. He was fussy and inconsolable, “Are all babies like this?!”
I was the frazzled, bleary-eyed new mama reading every book I could find on sleep training. Expert after expert gave conflicting answers. Surely, there had to be a better way.
Now, close to twenty years later, I’m a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach, and all four of my kids are well-rested and thriving!
I get to work with families from all walks of life. I get to co-create personalized, adaptive sleep plans that work for your family.
Most importantly, I get to see the look in parents’ and caregivers’ eyes when their child gets restful sleep. I’m the sleep coaching expert I wish I had when my children were younger.
Pediatric, Psychology, and Parenting Experts Trust Me
Since launching Rest Well Baby over 9 years ago, I’ve spoken to audiences of sleep-starved parents and caregivers on media outlets, podcasts, and publications, such as:
