Our Story…


Rachel Mitchell-Founder & Pediatric Sleep Consultant

In 2013 My Sweet Sleeper was born shortly after I had my first child. As a single mother, I struggled to juggle working and taking care of my new baby while running on little sleep (even though my son was a generally good sleeper). I realized at this time how little information I received about sleep and how valuable this would have been going home with a brand new baby. Even with my experience working with children I had no idea where to start when it came to getting my baby to sleep and I felt worried that I wouldn’t ever get a good night’s rest again.

I have always loved working with babies for as long as I can remember, which is why throughout college and beyond I had worked as a nanny and night nanny. During this time I had the opportunity to work with many multiples and care for babies as I gave their parents the gift of sleep. I was quickly referred by the families I was working for but of course could only be in one place at once and that is when I realized I could start helping families virtually.

To be honest, prior to becoming a sleep consultant I didn’t even know this profession existed. But as soon as I learned how many families really needed help, I was in! I studied Human Development at Metro State University in Denver, CO and became a certified infant and toddler sleep consultant in 2013 after attending the International Maternity Institute.

Over the years I have continued to receive additional certifications and training in maternity and child sleep as science and research evolves, as well as adult and kid’s yoga, which I use with families with older children.

Since starting My Sweet Sleeper, I have worked with hundreds of families and have had the rewarding experience of helping their children sleep better. It truly is one of the most wonderful professions and I genuinely look forward to each new family I get to be a part of.

Rachel lives outside of Boston with her husband and children. Together they have 5 kids + one grandchild!

A quick note about crying

As a Mother, I know how difficult it is to hear your baby cry and the physiological affects it can have on both of you. While tears are sometimes a part of this process, we do our best to take a balanced approach and would never ask you to do anything you didn’t feel comfortable with.
