Me and my Papa
Hey there. I’m Carolina Romanyuk, a Child and Family Sleep Consultant, specializing in pediatric sleep hygiene and behavioral coaching, International Children’s book author, creator of: "The Sleep Trifecta: 3 Steps to Sleep Success." Speaker, and Mom of 2 happy and rested toddlers.
But why do I do what I do?
I have dedicated my career to helping families suffering from sleep deprivation around the globe through Skype, emails and in-person consults, by providing them easy-to-follow and proven solutions that are backed by science.
When I became a mommy for the first time in 2010, I wanted it all – to cook “Top Chef” copycat meals, clean everyday, take care of my beautiful newborn son, be the perfect wife, and continue my career in finance.
But, I was exhausted, I wasn’t taking care of myself, and wasn’t watching my health. I also wanted and much needed my “me” time, but felt selfish to take it. With my husband’s loving words, “go and enjoy yourself, I got this,” I would do simple activities. Like spend time watching “I Love Lucy,” dancing to Salsa music (Oye, those love-handle-hip-reducing beats!) and playing with my make up.
My second son soon came along, and many of my friends were also having children at that time, too and these new mommies all asked me the same question: “Carolina, how do you get your boys to sleep through the night?” To me it was second nature, but as I found out from my friends it isn’t instinctual for everyone.
I’m naturally witty, caring, nurturing, (and stylish!) and I enjoyed helping my friends overcome their new mommy jitters. In the process, I realized that my destiny wasn’t in finance, but in helping others. Especially with my love of sleep. So, I educated myself on pediatric sleep training.

Hi, I'm Carolina.
But I’m also a mommy who knows the struggle. I get you – I know what you’re going through and I understand how sensitive the topic of sleep is.
IT STINKS THAT....
it has been 11 months and your child still wakes up during the night, and don't fool yourself again by saying "it's probably teething."
IT STINKS THAT....
you have no routine placed and just have to wing it everyday. Especially that you have 2 kids and completely different activities for them.
IT STINKS THAT....
that you have to hide out in the bathroom to get yourself together because you can't bare another night of bedtime battles and just want to get sleep for a few unitnerrupted hours. You just want to place your beautiful baby down in her crib without any crying, fussing or guilt. Be able to give her a kiss and leave the room knowing that she will sleep through the night and you can spend some time with your husband or even just chill out and watch uniterrrupted T.V.
IT STINKS! I've been there.
What you need is to be heard and a solid sleep plan to guarantee you better sleep.
Someone to listen to your questions and concerns without judgement and provide you step-by-step, hold-your-hand , easy peezy solutions that are also backed by science.
Well luckily for you, I can help with that.
What I’ll provide you aren’t just any methods that you can find anywhere on the Internet. Instead, you’ll receive tools, guidance, and unconditional support based on the latest in pediatric sleep science. I’ll teach you about my own program I call the “sleep trifecta” – biological timing, scheduling, and setting up the right environment. I’ll also take a 360-degree view of your child’s day, life, and family setting and provide you with a custom solution that’s unique to you and your child.
My work has appeared on various sites, including The Huffington Post, Well Rounded, A Child Grows In Brooklyn, We Are Pediatricians, and NYMetroParents.
