Hi! I'm Teri
Founder of Beloved Baby Consulting LLC
My inspiration to start this company came after the birth of my son in 2020. My journey began with the Illinois Early Intervention Program in 2011 as a Service Coordinator. In 2015 I earned my masters degree in special education and shifted my focus to developmental therapy. As of today, I am still a certified developmental therapist.
Throughout my pregnancy, I had the mindset of “Babies just eat, sleep and poop right? How hard can that be?” Turns out, it was really hard! So hard that I felt that I was failing my son because he wasn’t sleeping. As a parent, this also meant that I wasn’t sleeping. Having multiple people under the same roof all feeling sleep deprived added an additional level of stress and I knew something needed to change. After reading many books, and reaching out to friends, I stumbled upon the sleep consulting program through the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting. Upon enrolling in this program, I was able to complete and become certified in: baby sign language, newborn sleep consulting, pediatric sleep consulting, and potty training consulting.
Looking back now, I believe that my son’s sleep challenges involved a variety of factors including: he wasn’t receiving enough nutrition from nursing, differences of opinions on his sleep environment, and mostly I was not educated on what strategies were appropriate for him. You don’t know what you don’t know right?
I truly do not wish any family to experience the thought that you are failing your child. I am here to help you navigate the needs of your child and your family.
