Many of us struggle with parenting, which is why, here at Sleeping Should Be Easy, my goal is to provide overwhelmed moms with helpful and encouraging tips and advice to actually enjoy parenthood.
Because if you’re like me, you face both the joys and the challenges of being a mom.
Maybe you’re fed up with your child’s outbursts and wonder how many tantrums is too many, or want to address misbehavior with empathy and patience. You’re struggling with balancing parenthood, work and your home. A few of you might even be parents of twins and need resources.
You’ve come to the right place.
Since it began in 2010, Sleeping Should Be Easy continues to make an impact on fellow parents:
“First off let me say thank you!! Your articles have literally kept me from losing my mind some days and this morning was one of them. It feels good to know I’m not alone and there are resources to help me grow as a mother, and to help me through different seasons of life. Once again thank you for sharing the things that you have learned along the way. I am eternally grateful!” -Windy Garner
“Thank you Nina. I just want to say there aren’t many resources or people in my life right now that I feel can relate to my situation, but reading your emails and articles makes me feel so much less alone :). Thanks for all you do and for being a guiding light!” -Jessica O’Donnell
“Hi Nina, I’m really lucky to find your blog and newsletter. You have no idea how your shared articles and tips have been helping raising and looking after my first newborn. Even your emails are such a relief and lifesaver in these hectic day. I can’t find enough words to express how I’m really grateful and thankful for all your hard and great work. Since I’ve heard about you, I’ve been recommending your blog and Facebook page to my friends.” -Krestin Z.
“Hey Nina! I really love your posts and emails. You hit the nail on the head every time and make me feel so much better! I feel like such a failure every time I lose my patience or yell but you really make me feel less alone and realize all of us moms go through it. I’m working sooooo hard to be the best mom I can be and I’m really glad I found your blog!” -Jeannie
“Reading your post has really turned my life around. I cannot thank you enough. I have a highly spirited & at times defiant 2 year old girl. She is my life & it is a miracle that we even have her (that is another story for another time), but lately I have been struggling in dealing with her. A lot. A LOT. Reading your post gave me a whole new perspective on things. On reflection, I think my attitude had been a major factor in my struggle. Anyway, to make a long story short, I have started to enjoy being a Mummy again & I cannot thank you enough. You have a fan forever!!!!” -Kellie
“Hi Nina, First of all thank you. Honestly, there are days where I feel the mom guilt eat at me in the night and think I’m the worst mom in the world and then I read one of your blogs that pertain to a situation I had earlier in the day with my preschooler and suddenly I feel better to know I’m not the only one. Yelling is my struggle right now, but thankfully I’ve found some helpful tips on how to better handle tantrums and misbehaving on your blog! Thank you!” -Andrea
What the site is about
I began Sleeping Should Be Easy as an online journal about being a mom. I recorded milestones, described outings, and most importantly, I wrote parenting lessons. The blog gained momentum and resonated with other parents going through the same struggles and challenges.
Many wrote saying the articles helped them handle their own conflict and provided the solutions that worked. Others admitted they felt frustrated with parenting and found answers on the blog. Friends in my “real life” who read the blog came to me with questions, looking for advice.
Since then, the blog has grown into an online resource for millions of parents just like you, looking for practical answers and insightful motivation. Each time you read the site, I hope you’ll gain more tips and motivation on how to be a better parent.

Who am I?
I’m Nina, a mom to three boys, including twins. I’ve been happily married to my husband for 11 years. I’m a Southern Cali girl, hence the references to beautiful weather and unbelievable traffic (they’re all true). And I cook almost every night—and actually like it.
I also wrote books and courses about parenting, sleep, twins and helping children learn. See my store right here.
I’ve also been featured on Regalo Baby, It Takes a Village Podcast, Growing Our Family Podcast, Scary Mommy, the Herstory Project, and have been invited to speak as a Guest Parenting Speaker for private organizations.
Besides parenting, some of the topics I’m passionate about include:
- Education: encouraging children to learn and succeed in school and make meaningful contributions to the world.
- Environment: growing and buying local food as well as living green.
- Psychology and sociology: learning about how we behave and think the way we do.
- Social justice: fostering equality and human rights for all people.
- Personal finance: learning how to live with enough and finding ways to earn more income.
- Dancing! I can’t run for five minutes, but get me on the dance floor and I can get down for hours 🙂
The site has grown thanks to the SSBE community—parents like you who come here for information, discuss thought-provoking topics, and share parenting tips.
Again, welcome! Thanks for reading along and joining me.
All the best,
