Speaking Topics

Infant & Child Sleep

We all want what is best for our children; we buy them good food to eat, we make sure they get some movement each day and we offer them a loving environment to thrive in. One thing that is often misunderstood is sleep; there is a lot of information online and in parenting books about sleep, but unfortunately most of it is not accurate or overly helpful.

Brooke has done the research, broken down the most important things you need to know and found manageable ways to implement the information in order for your child to learn to love sleep. It may seem overwhelming but during the talk you will understand the simple ways you can promote good sleep. And once your child is a good sleeper they will always love sleep, which means you can too!

What People Have to Say…

“You are a great speaker, very knowledgeable and many families speak highly of you and your tips and tricks. I have greatly enjoyed having you come and provide that information to our families and hope in the future we can continue a partnership!”

– Allison Beauchamp, Director of Strathroy Earlier Years Center

“Someone from our group specifically shared tonight that your talk on sleep saved their life.They were really suicidal because they couldn’t sleep. Listened to you and started a sleep routine like you suggested, they even started journaling and doing things you suggested after they wake and they are getting a solid 4 hours at first and then another 3-4 hours after they wake and reset. They have been doing it since your talk and their doctor is helping them come off their sleep meds now.”

– First Responder

“I am a First Responder with PTSD. I have lived through the last 26 years with poor sleep which greatly affected my mental health and work performance. Work taught me how to help others but gave me no tools on how to help myself. I invited Brooke to my PTSD support group and she educated over 20 first responders about the importance of sleep and tools to use at home. Over a month has passed now and I implemented all the tools I learned from Brooke and gained the courage to not rely on my sleeping pills anymore and i’m starting to sleep more effectively. Gone are the days of tossing and turning in anger when I wake. It is replaced by an effective routine that gets me back to sleep. Sleep is a life saver, without it your cant function. We spend a third of our life sleeping, everyone should know these valuable tools. You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep. Thank you so much Brooke Zzzzzz”

“Working with Brooke has been an absolute delight… Brooke was flexible to meet our needs and worked all of our requests into the programming she offered… I have had great reviews from the students who attended the first talk, some of them even returning to ask for more. The presentation itself was visually appealing and easy to follow giving students the key takeaway points without overwhelming them with more information than needed. Students left with tangible, takeaway tips that they could start implementing immediately while working to improve their sleep. The large array of resources Brooke made available to students following the talk were well received and used by all who attended.”
