What I know to be true:
- sleep is a hella polarizing topic
- there is a LOT of conflicting advice out there
- guidance is full of quick blanket fixes that don’t last
All the while maintaining that oh-so-important attachment with your little one
Attachment-led sleep support done YOUR way
Leave the rigid training methods behind.
This dashboard offers you:
I’ve been where you are. Twice!
I trialled allll the sleep training advice and techniques, trying desperately to discover a path that resonated for me and my two babies. And when I wasn’t satisfied with the fixes focusing on the what instead of the why, I put my decades of behavioural research expertise into action to try to crack this mystery of baby sleep.
And I’ve learned a little something along the way. I want to save you the headache and pass on to you everything I have uncovered through research, experience and supporting hundreds of families in their sleep journeys.
Don’t worry. There’s nothing prescriptive about it. I value your unique parenting style and the special bond that you have with your baby.
When not wearing my mom-hat, I am a primate-loving, evolutionary-biology-teaching, neuroscience-studying, behaviour-examining, globe-trotting PhD who loves to dance it out and sleep. Always sleep.
There’s a lot of misinformation and unsolicited advice circulating in the “how to parent” world.
I have carefully and intentionally designed this program to give you the resources you need to improve your family’s sleep YOUR WAY, while still remaining true to you.
❌No robot babies.
❌No sacrificing attachment.
😴Just the sleep you need and want.
When you sign up for Why All the Fuss, you will receive an email a day for 10 days linking you to one step in your path to a healthy, restorative sleep foundation for your baby.
You will gain access to over 4 hours of video content broken into bite-sized digestible pieces and complemented by clear written summaries, templates, and downloadables.
PLUS, you will receive our complete support booklet to reference key steps, track your progress, and peek into what lies ahead in your baby’s development.
Let’s be besties 💙
Parenthood can be an isolating experience. It can also filled with expectations, uncertainties, and insecurity.
All fuelled by the desire to be everything to those beautiful little humans.
Yes I know sleep. But I also know the ebbs and flows of parenthood. And that expectations and reality don’t always align.
In welcoming you into this community, I want you to have a space that you can lean into.
A space where you can feel comfortable asking the sticky questions and discovering new strategies that you can trust. A space where you don’t have to go at it alone.

Sleep challenges don’t always occur on a predictable schedule.
You often don’t realize you’re in it, until you’re in it.
Leave the guesswork behind with access to all of the intel that you need for the first 18 months of your little one’s life.
Milestones. Major developments. Tricky transitions. Gentle fading approaches.
Evidence-based and clinically-supported information you can trust at your fingertips, 24/7.
Don’t waste weeks searching for answers and then turn blindly to a one-time consultation that lacks follow up.
With Why All the Fuss you become an integral part of a private community where you can ask for support on your schedule, not someone else’s.
I’ll be popping in on the regular to chat it out, offer new insights, share ideas, and give my As to any Qs you have.
In short, get a sleep coach, a fellow parent, and a friend to call on whenever you need it.
PLUS, receive 25% off MimC’s 30 or 60 minute Sweet Dreamer Refresher packages should you need additional support at any point in the journey.
Raising babies can feel isolating. Especially if you feel you are missing the mark on getting the perfectly sleeping baby that it seems others have.
This whole tiny human thing takes a village! We are not meant to do it alone.
As a member of Why All the Fuss you become are part of a community of parents that you can trust.
A community of parents who understand what you are going through because they are going through it too.
I get it. It’s super tough to spend money on something that you think might just get better with time. And sleep is one of those topics that’s extra personal on the parent front.
But I know so many parents that will commonly drop hundreds of dollars on the newest gimmick on the market that ensures the BEST sleep possible for your little (hello motorized bassinets, fancy lullaby machines, new-aged monitors, bedtime apps).
Or they wait until they are in absolute desperation and hire a sleep consultant on a whim, ready to “try anything” to find a solution to their sleep woes.
This program is not meant to be a blanket fix. Nor does it boast some magic potion that will solve all sleep behaviour. Instead, this program gives you the tools and the skillset to navigate each and every sleep challenge as it comes, with flexibility, confidence, and compsure.
And an understanding of where to focus your limited energy that will meet your baby where they are at developmentally. At each stage of the game.
But what I really don’t want is for you to just accept poor sleep as a part of parenthood. Because even though it seems that sleep should just come naturally – we all do it, after all – the behaviours surrounding falling asleep comfortably and happily are 100% learned. And you are your babe’s fave teacher.
This is not your typical sleep “training” program. Here you’re getting all the intel not so much for WHAT to do (though there’s lots of this too), but for HOW and WHY sleep is one of the most important things you can give to your little one… and to yourself.

Babies cry to communicate changes to what is familiar to them. Babies also have different temperaments and ways of responding to parental care. So while some crying is likely, this program offers options to respond to your baby in a gentle and graduated way. There are no rigid cry it out (CIO) steps to follow – you can tailor your support in a way that feels comfortable to you given your unique family values and structures.
Absolutely not. Feeding can remain an important piece of your daily and nightly routine. You will learn strategies to space out feeds in an age-appropriate manner and understand the difference between wakings out of hunger and behavioural wakings.
Yes! If you are room sharing, you can still implement the strategies discussed to help facilitate longer bouts of more restorative sleep (for you and your baby).
