About The Author

Sophie Acott is a mother, certified sleep consultant, parent coach, homebirth enthusiast, and conscious parenting advocate. After working with families for many years using traditional behavioral methodologies, Sophie recognized that something was amiss.

 

Mainstream cry-it-out and popular sleep-training techniques lacked sustainability and failed to acknowledge the inextricable link between the parent-child connection and sleep challenges. On the contrary, the trend toward attachment parenting and no-cry approaches—while a move in the right direction—ignored the fundamental function of crying to help children release everyday stress and heal from trauma.

 

Sophie conceptualized the Sleep Play Love method from her desire to empower parents with the tools and confidence to overcome sleep challenges as their children evolved beyond babyhood. Sophie shares her wealth of sleep experience and knowledge via her growing Facebook community of thousands of parents, and her Sleep Play Love blog.

 

Born and raised in Australia, Sophie now resides in San Diego, California,
with her husband and four young children.
