About the Creator of Sweet Slumber

A Dream of Miracles

Hi!  I am Meredith Brough.  I have worked with infants, toddlers, and children for over 25 years!  Besides being a nanny, a preschool teacher, and an educational assistant, I owned a daycare for many years as I raised my five children.   While caring for my babies and helping the families I cared for, I developed a valuable talent and skillset of helping infants and older babies (and twins) sleep through the night.  This was a hobby of mine for many years.  I earned the nickname "Baby Whisperer" from my friends and family.  One day, an opportunity to help a friend changed my life.  I cared for 2 month old twin babies who only took 5-15 minute catnaps every 4-5 hours, day and night.  After making a few simple changes in their daily routine and habits, they slept for 8 hours after 4 days.  This is when I realized the value and depth of my ability to transform little ones into fantastic sleepers.   I discovered that sleep coaching can be a  dramatic blessing to mothers and their children.   Never looking back, I decided to use my gift to bless as many lives as possible.  The dream is still spreading: I worked with 100 babies before I reached a year in business!   Now, there are 2 new consultants in training!  Stay tuned!

Client Testimonial:

"Meredith has created a sleep system in which babies and toddlers learn to sleep not by crying,  but rather by the constant love and security offered to them by their parents. They are treated with care and gentleness as they learn to settle their minds and bodies into a truly sweet slumber."  Mindy, mother of 18 month old Ada

Let the Dreaming Begin!

When I am not training new consultants, growing my business or helping families, I enjoy spending time boating and swimming with my family, reading, writing, playing with children, decorating, and completing furniture projects with my husband.  I cherish time with friends doing anything!  I love being in the outdoors, traveling and going on dates with my husband to our favorite restaurants.
