If there’s anything new moms dream about it’s, well, the opportunity to dream at all. Indeed, a good night’s sleep can be a challenge for new parents struggling to catch some much-needed rest. Jessica Rivera can help. The certified sleep consultant launched her business aimed at helping parents teach babies to nap independently and sleep through the night.
“Equipping your little one to enjoy sleep is one of the most beneficial and long-lasting gifts you can give them,” says Rivera. “Research proves that sleep is restorative and greatly improves physical, mental, and emotional health.”
Rivera, who provides both private sessions and group seminars, offers free 15-minute phone consultations to parents interested in learning more.
The Heirloom Company
You might call it the eHarmony of the parenting world. The Heirloom Company connects moms and dads throughout Orange County with the perfect nannies and doulas. Founder Kaitlynn Lim launched the service after recognizing the need for a specialized placement service.
“Too often nanny services place any decent nanny into a home, not taking the time to fully understand the family’s specific needs and personality preferences,” she says. “At The Heirloom Company, we focus on placing the right nanny with each family.”
Heirloom begins by learning more about a family’s needs. It then embarks on a mission to find the perfect helper or birth-and-postpartum doula. Once a prospective match is made, it sends the family information about the candidate. A meeting is then facilitated. Heirloom staffers continue to help families by walking them through the hiring process and addressing concerns.
