Invest in Rest with Christina!
Gentle Sleep Educator &
Certified Infant & Child Sleep Consultant
What inspired me to be a sleep consultant?
My name is Christina Lubrano. I grew up in Springfield, Missouri but moved to Rome, Italy for university where I met my husband and stayed. We have three little boys ages 5, 3, and 2 years old.
My husband and I struggled with our first son and sleep. This pushed me to find a solution that literally changed our lives and our children's lives. For this reason, I decided to become a sleep consultant.
Sleep is such an important part of our lives; it restores us, makes us feel more relaxed, and have a clearer mind. Tiredness makes us irritable and cranky. Constant exhaustion makes everything seem so much harder and that was what we were: exhausted.
We knew something had to change. We desperately wanted sleep for our family and we made the decision to hire a sleep consultant. She changed our lives and we are so grateful to her.
I want to pay it forward and share my troubles and immense experience with new parents or parents who are in our same situation to help prevent what we had to go through to get the rest we needed and more importantly the sleep our babies needed.
It was apparent that once our children had the sleep they needed, they were calmer, they ate more, they were visibly happier. In other words, it was life-changing!
By following all that I read and what our sleep consultant taught us, I was able to get our third child to sleep through the night by 4 months of age!
Teaching independent sleep to our children is a vital part of family wellbeing and a gift they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
I want to guide parents along the journey to sleep-filled nights and tearless bedtimes.
There are so many books, different techniques or methods regarding infant and child sleep. It can be so overwhelming to know which to use, when, why or if it is right for your child. I have done the research, read the books, and learned the science to break things down in a simple manner, customizing information for each child, and making it easy to understand and follow for tired parents. Having said that, the following are what I strive to achieve for every parent:
guiding families to achieve their sleep goals and have
well-rested, happy babies
teaching families the importance of sleep and how great routines can create happy babies.
creating personalized, easy to follow sleep plans and routines
using my up-to-date research to aid families through the process of sleep coaching
using gentle or intermediate sleep teaching methods to avoid tears
supporting the family in every way I can because a well-rested family is a happy family
Quando ho contattato Christina la prima volta, facevo sessioni di sonno da 40 minuti. I miei figli di 4 anni e 6 mesi andavano a dormire alle 22 e si svegliavano di continuo la notte! Con Christina abbiamo fatto ritrovare ai bambini i loro orari naturali e di conseguenza anche il loro sonno naturale. Ci ha assistito con cura e dolcezza, incoraggiandoci e supportandoci durante tutto il periodo della consulenza e oltre. Ha studiato un piano fatto ad hoc per noi e le nostre abitudini e necessita'. Oggi alle 20:15 entrambi i miei bimbi si addormentano da soli nel loro lettini. Il grande dorme fino al mattino successivo. Il piccolino si sveglia una sola volta per mangiare, e neanche tutte le notti! E, soprattutto ora io e mio marito abbiamo delle ore per stare insieme e accudire anche la nostra vita di coppia. Non so come avremmo fatto senza di lei. Le saremo per sempre grati!
