Tracy Hanson - Doula911 Sleep Training Baby


As “911” indicates an emergency, the need for immediate hands on assistance,  my service means just that.  I come work with you, on the process of teaching baby to get good sleep and eventually to sleep through the night.

Do you feel exhausted, even sleep deprived as a parent? Do you know if your baby is getting enough good sleep?

Do you need help teaching your baby to sleep well during the night and at nap time? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions,

I can help you and your baby get better sleep.

The need for assistance can arise at any time after you go home from the hospital with your new baby. I have been a post-partum doula, lactation educator/counselor and a baby sleep specialist since 1999. I have had the pleasure and the privilege working with many families over the years, providing guidance and support with newborn care, breastfeeding and teaching parents how to teach their baby good sleep habits. When I am working with a family regarding their baby's sleep, it is always with that individual baby in mind. I personalize my teaching for good sleep with each baby by taking the following into consideration: age, weight, how the baby is being fed (breast, formula, both, solids, etů) and any other specific needs of each family.

Sleep training a baby is something that has been written about extensively, talked about by experts and caused many parents frustration and heartache. Sleep training by definition is one thing but knowing how and when to begin it, is a whole different story. Having ones baby sleep through the night at some point is usually the desire and goal of most parents. When a baby does not sleep well, the parents sleep suffers too. By the time a baby is a few months old the lack of good sleep by all is starting to show in different ways for different people. One thing I have heard over and over from many different families is that sleep is a much needed commodity and that the lack of it causes the home environment to be stressful. It is important to understand that there is a process to teaching a baby good sleep which in turn leads to more good sleep and sleeping through the night is definitely only one of the many rewards for the baby and family.

Parents can get impatient with each other and even with their baby when sleep is challenged. My goal is to help the whole family, by first helping the baby get good sleep. My husband and I have 4 children and we lived with the lack of sleep first hand and I know today that it is not necessary. Your baby's sleep pattern will continue until you as the parent do something about it. The first step is to call me and from there things will get easier.

The need for good sleep is important for baby, as well as, for the parents. If you are asking yourself, "Okay, what do I have to do to get my baby sleep trained, so he/she is getting good sleep"? My answer is, "Contact me". I will then explain in detail how my Doula 911 service for sleep training baby can help you. I will also encourage you to begin to implement the things below, as they will become sleep cues for baby and allow for a positive experience overall.

Dr. Sears says, “Babies need to be parented to sleep, not just put to sleep.   Some babies can be put down while drowsy yet still awake and drift off to sleep”.

Sleep is a very basic need.  It is of utmost importance.  Sleep allows for a calm, relaxed and happy environment for all.  Sleep contributes to baby's overall good health and disposition.

From Elizabeth Pantley’s, No Cry Sleep Solution - according to Dr. William Dement, MD., PhD, considered the world’s leading authority on sleep, “setting a routine and developing healthy bedtime cues and nighttime associations will allow your baby to drift off to sleep”.


"I had the pleasure of working with Tracy two years ago when my first child was born. Being a first-time Mom, I felt very anxious and frustrated with getting my little one to sleep. After three exhausting months and a lot of advice from various people (including my pediatrician), I decided to consult with a physician who was also a sleep specialist. To my dismay, he was still not able to get my daughter to sleep. Feeling hopeless and distressed, I turned to Tracy for advice. She was the only one who made a diffrence in getting my daughter to sleep, not only during the night but during the day too. Tracy is very intuitive when it comes the needs of your little one. She really understands that every baby is diffrent and will work with you to meet their individual needs. She is also very kind, personable, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. She really has the "Magic Touch" when it comes to babies! I have gained a lot of confidence as a parent by working with Tracy. I would highly recommend Tracy to any parent who is having sleep issues with their child." -Debbie Capp


"Tracy helped me so much with my son's sleep training (well, she actually did it all!!) that my husband already knows if he wants another baby, Tracy has to be hired the minute that baby is born! Feel free to call me anytime about how wonderful and helpful Tracy is with your child's sleep schedule training." -Carlie Kyle (858) 775-1050

I look forward to working with your family.

O God!  Rear this little babe in the bosom of Thy love, and give it milk from the breast of Thy Providence.  Cultivate this fresh plant in the rose-garden of Thy love and aid it to grow through the showers of Thy bounty.  Make it a child of the Kingdom and lead it to Thy heavenly realm.  Thou art powerful and kind, and Thou art the Bestower, the Generous, the Lord of surpassing bounty.   ‘Abdu’l-Baha
