Michelle McNeil Pediatric Sleep Consulting is a pediatric sleep consulting service dedicated to nurturing and educating families on their path towards optimal pediatric sleep and well-being. Specializing in babies, toddlers and young children.

I started as a pediatric sleep consultant after working as a Registered Nurse at a trauma center in Northern California for a decade. As a RN, I loved taking care of my patients – from infants to the elderly – and believe the experience has helped me better serve the families that I work with today. 

In 2011, my husband and I welcomed our son, Connor. As new parents, our first days and months were beautiful, but we also faced many challenges. Why won’t he sleep? Where is the best place for him to fall asleep? For how long? When should I pump? What resources should I be turning to for early parenting advice and guidance? As a mother and nurse, I realized very quickly that there was a real need for individualized pediatric sleep consulting in our community. In 2012 and 2016, we welcomed two more children, Brendan and Chloe. Chloe was born with achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism. While Chloe is thriving today, her birth and special needs underscored my deep love for helping others and my passion for developing sleep solutions for families with children needing individualized support. As a medical professional, I was determined to find a research based approach with loving solutions for pediatric sleeping challenges. After being introduced to the Millette Sleep Method -- a multifaceted and holistic approach that takes into account the entire family system, the child’s developmental stage, and the needs of the parents -- I began training and providing assistance to families in need of sleep support. 

I have a Master's Degree in Nursing Case Management, am a Certified Lactation Educator (CLE) and I am trained in the Millette Sleep Method. My husband and I and our three children reside in the East Bay in Northern California.
