Hi! I’m Alicia Birdsong, Licensed Professional Counselor and founder of Hush Little Birdie Pediatric Sleep Consulting.
My journey in becoming a Pediatric Sleep Consultant began when my oldest daughter’s sleep drastically changed around 4 months of age. It felt as though someone flipped a switch, and I wasn’t able to soothe my daughter to sleep anymore. Naps and bedtime became a battle, and she also began waking more frequently during the night. My husband and I were exhausted.
During my frantic Google search to solve my daughter’s sleep issues, I discovered the amazing field of pediatric sleep consulting! My husband and I decided to work with a sleep consultant when my daughter was 4 months old. Within a few weeks my daughter was sleeping through the night and had a set schedule for naps during the day. She is now 3 years old, and still an awesome sleeper!
Once my daughter’s sleep had improved, family, friends and colleagues began asking for my help with their children’s sleep issues. I enjoyed helping other parents so much, that I decided to enroll in the Family Sleep Institute (FSI) Child Sleep Consultant Certification Program.
As a formerly sleep deprived parent, I can tell you there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. You too can become a well-rested family! Check out my Sleep Packages to see which would be the best fit for your family. Now, let’s get you more sleep!!
Alicia lives in East Lansing, MI with her husband, and two daughters. When she’s not helping families get more sleep, or working in her role as a therapist, she is at home with her family. She enjoys a good Netflix binge, coffee, exploring the city of Lansing, and spending time with friends and family.
