pediatric sleep consultant Heather Blanton Burns

Hi! I’m glad you’re here. Day by day, your child is growing and you’re growing too.

Parenting is not a one-size-fits all approach. It’s highly personal. The way you raise your child is highly influenced by cultural, family, and likely, spiritual values. Helping your child develop healthy habits from a young age is vital to their long-term health and well-being. Though the end goal is the same, the approach may vary greatly from family to family, and that is ok!

This is a space for education and support; a space where we get to expand on those basic topics you wish you had a few more minutes to talk about with your child’s primary care provider. I’ll be touching on topics that are important to parents right now, based on my daily engagement with families, raising children of all ages.

One of my goals is to help you navigate the sea of information that’s readily available to you on the internet. Where you get your info matters and my promise to you is to provide you with valid resources and keep you in the know, regarding what the current science says.

This is also a space where you’ll be encouraged to give yourself some grace, because you don’t have to be the perfect parent. The great news is that you’re allowed to grow and change along the way; to become a better version of you each and every day! Parenting is a journey and I am here to support you in your unique journey. Pediatric Sleep Consultant
