On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Eva Klein about why we’re so worried about our kids and their sleep habits. Eva is a wife and mom of three, a recovering lawyer, a certified infant and child sleep consultant, and the owner and founder of My Sleeping Baby and the Sleep Bible program. Eva’s main goal is to assist her clients establish healthy sleep habits for their children. After experiencing the debilitating effects of chronic sleep deprivation from her two children, Eva was inspired to help families overcome their sleep challenges.
“Sleep deprivation is torturous. When we aren’t sleeping well, we are not at our best,” Eva said. “I’m a little bit the scary person to be around when I don’t have enough sleep. … It’s easy to forget that toddlers are little humans with similar needs: They need sleep, they need food, they need activity. When they don’t get the sleep that they need, they are not able to function at 100%.”
