Dr. Whitney Roban
After taking time off from her professional life to be a mom, during which time she sleep trained her own children, Whitney formed SLEEP-EEZ KIDZ. Dr. Roban is now devoting her time away from her two very well rested sons to help other parents and caregivers struggling with childhood sleep problems. Throughout her years working as a child sleep consultant, Whitney has helped hundreds of children sleep soundly every night.

Some desperate parents have recently started turning to Melantonin as a possible solution. But as Dr. Whitney Roban, Ph.D., of Sleep-Eez Kids, explains, that is one approach that is decidedly NOT OK.
