Hi, my name is Jillian Rossitto and I am the founder of Best Rest Baby. A certified Family Sleep Institute infant and child sleep consultant, I have completed 50+ hours of training and have had the privilege of supporting many families. I believe that every child and family deserves a restful night of sleep. In fact, my motto is, “Your baby is only at their best after a good night of rest!”
As a nanny, babysitter, and certified early childhood teacher, I have a deep understanding of the importance of sleep. Because of my work in the NYC public schools, I have seen first-hand the direct impact that sleep has on a child’s mood, cognitive abilities, and overall academic performance. I know that a solid sleep foundation is imperative to the success and well-being of children and their families. That is why I have made it my personal goal to help restore exhausted households with compassion and encouragement.
My work with children and families spans more than a decade. I have cared for children of all ages but my expertise is with newborns and infants. My teaching experience includes both general and special education students from nursery school through grade four. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Education with a concentration in early childhood special education.
I pride myself in being able to communicate with and teach families in a highly effective and supportive manner.
What’s truly special about Best Rest Baby is that I am able to bring my knowledge of psychology, child development, and education to the field of infant and child sleep. Since sleep affects everything from cognition to mood, it has become my mission to empower families with the tools they need to fully understand the importance of sleep. No matter what challenges you are currently facing, I will create a personalized sleep plan that is perfect for your child and your family.
