Hi! I'm Marni.
Welcome to RAISING LITTLES!
I'm a mom to three active boys and one wild puppy, a social worker, certified lactation counselor, certified gentle sleep coach and child development specialist. I love working with parents and children and am passionate about helping you feel confident and empowered in your parenting journey.
Since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by babies and how they grow. Over the last 25 years that fascination has evolved from babysitting & nannying into making a career out of coaching and supporting babies, children and their parents.
When I work with your family I use a holistic and whole child approach and work with you to accomplish your sleep and parenting goals- I have the experience and expertise but you are the expert on your child.
"Our life has been transformed! From our first call, Marni provided us with a gentle and supportive way to help our daughter learn how to put herself to sleep. Throughout the process, Marni was so helpful in identifying our sleep goals for our daughter and giving us the tools and confidence to achieve those goals.
Now, with thanks to Marni, I feel more confident as a mom and I have the tools to help support my daughter develop healthy sleep habits that she can carry with her into the future."
Katherine, mom to 8 month old
"Marni has been so helpful with guiding me around healthy sleep for my 8-week old. Even though my new baby is our third, I have learned so much from Marni and feel much better about how my little one is sleeping than I have at this stage with my previous kids. Marni is kind and open, and I feel so lucky to have her as a resource throughout this big transition for our family!"
Lizzie, mom to 8 week old
"My son was waking up multiple times a night, coming into our room and needing help to go back to sleep in his bed. Eventually he began sleeping in our room on an air mattress for months. Marni worked with us to get our son back in his bed, falling asleep on his own and staying in his bed all night- something we never thought would happen! She coached us through the whole process, including how to talk to our son about the changes that were going to take place. Everyone is finally sleeping in their own beds all night long!"
