There's a Monster in My Closet - Unraveling The Science of Sleep
 

Welcome to There’s a Monster in My Closet!

Your one-stop-shop to all things sleep.

It’s your portal in the sleep realm - its structure, its value, its challenges. To allow you to better appreciate this essential physiological state, and to recognize that, like all behaviours, sleep is a habit that can be refined with a bit of insight. Both in ourselves and in our children.


 

Our Mission

We are dedicated

  • to supporting families in prioritizing healthy sleep solutions for their household.

  • to helping parents understand sleep behaviour and physiology in early development.

  • to empowering parents to make informed decisions surrounding sleep that fit within their unique family values.

Sleep is that unavoidable past time that we yearn for so completely when we can’t have it, but try all to hard to ignore when we so desperately need it. This is never more true than if you've recently brought a little human into this world….

How can something so essential be so hard to come by in new parenthood? Thanks to a set of highly innate, age-dependent, and oh-so-important, developmental milestones that almost always wreak havoc on your little one’s slumber. And if baby’s not sleeping... well, neither are you.

We provide resources and services that educate on stages of sleep development, drivers of sleep behaviour, and the importance of sleep health in young children. We believe every child deserves a healthy sleep foundation. 

Want to bypass the browsing? Looking for some quick tips? I hear ya! That’s why I’ve launched the MIMC Sleep Institute - an online sleep education portal to help you navigate all the age-dependent schedules, transitions, milestones, and developments in your child(ren) so that you know where to focus your precious, limited energy.

Meet the Sleep Monsters

How can something so essential be so hard to come by in new parenthood? Thanks to a set of highly innate, age-dependent, and oh-so-important, developmental milestones that almost always wreak havoc on your little one’s slumber. And if baby’s not sleeping... well, neither are you.

Always Hungry. Sleep Associations. Separation Anxiety. Serious FOMO. Afraid of the Dark.

Every child passes through these sleep-depriving shifts, making new parents question if they will EVER.SLEEP.AGAIN. In an attempt to make light of the most frequently discussed topic between new parents, and to help you and your littles connect in the sleep realm, I have enlisted a series of monster friends, each representing one of the most common sleep challenges among babies and young children. Let them walk you through the world of childhood sleep - they may just offer that comfort you are searching for.

 

The Ultimate Paradox

We spend a full one third of our lives sleeping –

that’s over 200 000 hours in a lifetime! 

Yet many of us are not getting the amount or quality of sleep that we need. So much of our modern digitized society is habitually and chronically sleep deprived, and science is beginning to reveal just how damaging this can be. So vital is this state that the entire animal kingdom appears to participate....But why??
