Allison Kidwell, D.O., M.S., F.A.A.P., C.C.S.C.
First and foremost, I’m a parent who gets it. I was once a nervous, expectant Mom who was reading all the “one size fits all” sleep training guides. I was then an exhausted, stressed newborn Mom who was desperate for something (or someone!) to help my baby and I get some rest. As a pediatrician, one of the most common concerns I was hearing from parents was: “our kid just doesn’t sleep!” There was only one solution to all of these problems... I had to become a child sleep expert!
So I dove right in and did all of the hard work, which means you don’t have to!
I’m a Certified Child Sleep Consultant, a Board-Certified Pediatrician, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Mom to two young kids. I love to collaborate with families to create individualized, realistic plans that keep their children healthy, happy, and safe. I’ll use my knowledge of sleep science, my training in child development and behavior, and my own experiences as a parent to help guide you to dramatically improve your child’s sleep.
My goal is to meet families where they are, without any judgement, and to create plans that they’re 100% comfortable with. I won’t recommend anything that isn’t practical, isn’t backed by good science, or that I wouldn’t do in my own home, with my own kids. Let’s do this!
