Sleep Bestie founder Shanna Vititow

Hi bestie!!

I am Shanna

I’m a Pediatric Sleep Consultant living in Orange County, California, with my husband and our two-year-old son. I graduated cum laude from National University in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Child Development. 

Before I became a sleep consultant, I was a preschool teacher and worked as a behavior therapist for children diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders.

When I brought my son home for the first time I was hit with some of the hardest moments of my life. I spent countless hours crying, questioning if I was going to be a good mom and wondering if this is what my life would be like.

My Story

My baby wouldn’t sleep for more than 30 minutes at a time.

As a new mom not knowing what to expect I thought this was normal. This went on for months until I began to realize that I was overtired and I needed help- I was at my wits end. 

After I got the results I wanted (a baby sleeping 12 hours through the night and 3 hours during the day) I became fascinated with sleep science and sleep training. IT WORKS! It’s never too early to start instilling good sleep habits. No one should ever experience the level of sleep deprivation that I did. Sleep deprivation should not be considered a normal part of motherhood.
