Ages: Infants, Toddler, and Young Children

Consultation Description: Sleep, or more accurately, the lack of sleep, is one of the most challenging aspects of parenting during the early years of your child’s life. The biggest hurdle is getting your baby or young child to sleep through the night. “Sleepy-Time” offers parents a gentle, sensitive, child-centered approach to sleep that speaks to the uniqueness of each parent and child. This consultation will help you to have a better understanding of your child’s developmental stages, sleep needs and learned responses so that you can work together to get the soothing rest you both need.


Marilee Hartling is a registered nurse and sleep consultant who worked for many years in maternal-child nursing and led the “First Weeks Group” at Cedars- Sinai Medical Center prior to conducting groups privately. She is also a licensed marriage and family therapist and a child development specialist. Marilee specializes in working as a therapist with parents, infants and children from birth to age 12 in her private practice in West Hollywood. Marilee is the mother of 4 grown children and is also a happy grandmother.
