Hey there! I'm Cara.

I'm a neonatal nurse, wife of a pediatrician, and a certified pediatric sleep consultant. I'm also a mom to four kids, so I know first-hand how important good sleep is for your entire family.

I created Taking Cara Babies to help babies and toddlers sleep so the whole family can thrive. Let’s meet your child right where they are developmentally with strategies that match your family’s priorities and lifestyle.
