Sleep Coaching Doesn't Have to be Difficult!


I can help you get your little one to sleep in less time with peace of mind that they are loved, safe, and taken care of.

My name is Marni. I am a...

  • Certified Gentle Sleep Coach

  • Child Development Specialist

  • Certified Lactation Counselor

  • Social Worker

  • Mom to 3 boys

I coach parents of 0-6 year olds using gentle age and developmentally approach techniques to help children fall asleep easier and stay asleep longer.


I love working with parents and children and am passionate about helping you feel confident and empowered in your parenting journey. I started Raising Littles because I want to support parents as they go through the most incredible experience of their lives.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!

Marni was our Gentle Sleep Coach for our 3rd child, and we started to work with her when our daughter was about 8 months old. 

When our daughter was about 4 months old, her sleeping patterns became more erratic.  Around 7 months, the bedtime routine became very challenging and my daughter started to wake every 20 minutes.  I was so concerned she was not getting enough sleep that I would usually give up and bring her into bed with me.  It was at this point I realized we needed help. 

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. 

My daughter is now 10 months old and she is sleeping beautifully.  I no longer stress nap or bedtime because she goes down easily and stays asleep!  I would recommend Marni to anyone that is looking for a better sleeping experience for both their baby and their family.

 I help children ages 0-6 fall asleep independently, stay asleep in their own sleep space and feel more refreshed and energized as a result.

After years of studying and working in the field I assumed once I had a child I would have all of the, was I wrong!I was shocked that I felt overwhelmed by the never ending needs of my baby, confused by all of the conflicting advice and exhasuted by sleep deprivation. I was obsessed with my baby's sleep and development and worried so much about whether I was doing 'the right thing' or not.
Now, after 11 years of being a mom I have learned there isn't one right way to do something and that it all depends on who my baby is and what he needs in that moment and time. I've learned to trust myself more and trust in my relationship with my children. And I know I can help you, too. 
Having lived and worked with families in LA, NYC, and New England for the past 25 years, my family now lives in Overland Park, Kansas where we are exploring all of this new open space and getting to know the heart of the country.

"Working with Marni was one of the best things we did. She listened to our concerns about sleep and behavior. She gave us the tools to address our concerns and be successful. We went from an unorganized bedtime routine to an structured bedtime. She was always available when we needed her. Thanks to Marni we are a happier and healthier family."

I know what it's like to be stuck in the vicious cycle of spending all evening trying to get your little one to bed only to be woken up several times a night to have to do the whole thing all over again!


It's exhausting and the thought of commiting to making a change is overwhelming and often paralyzing because it feels daunting to figure out what to do to get your child past this.


I will help you get unstuck. I will take you step by step through the process of how to support your child using gentle age and developmentally appropriate strategies to help them fall asleep independenty and stay asleep all night in their own sleep space.
