Rebecca Kammerer’s background of work and study has greatly revolved around children, most importantly caring for children. She studied psychology at SUNY Purchase. She owned an in-home daycare and she was a live-in/out nanny for over 14 years. She has been in the pediatric sleep business for five years and recognizes that you are searching for answers. She have been personally trained and certified by "The Sleep Lady", Kim West as a Gentle Sleep Coach.
Whether you decide that co-sleeping, room sharing, or having your child in their own crib, bed or on a mat is for your family, Rebecca helps parents learn to obtain this. All the while guiding you on how to create healthy sleep habits for your entire family.
Most recently her studies have been based on “maternal depression and sleep training”. What she has learned is how the attachment process between the primary caregiver, who is going through depression and the child, can be negatively affected by using the cry-it-out method of sleep training, as well as how the baby’s brain can be altered due to prolonged bouts of crying. From this, she has created schedules to help with the overall health of a child. She talks with families of how it is important that the people supporting the depressed parent learn to recognize the signs of maternal depression and encourage them to seek help.
She is located in a pediatrician’s office (Happy and Healthy Pediatrics in Mineola, NY). What is wonderful about this partnership is, even though the practices go-to form of sleep training is the cry-it-out method, they are still open to the concerns of the parent who decide that that method of sleep coaching is not for their family. At which point they refer them to Rebecca.
"... I'm a developmental psychologist and a certified early childhood teacher, ...I don't hesitate to recommend Rebecca to anyone who experiences distress, frustration and worry about their child's sleep habits. Our daughter gained a great deal from the skills Rebecca helped us teach her; however, my husband and I equally benefited from the guidance, support, and encouragement from Rebecca. She taught us to trust our instincts and trust our daughter and what she was trying to communicate, while shutting out the chatter from well-meaning, but uninformed family and friends..."
-Andrea R., New York, N.Y.
"we are finally sleeping through the night (12 hours) and taking two scheduled naps for at least an hour and 15 min each! I’m not nursing to sleep anymore and she is not nursing in the middle of the night. We have an awesome routine..."
-Deb, Nick & OF COURSE MIA:), New York
"Rebecca Kammerer’s sleep coaching was an incredible support to me while I was sleep training my 15 month old son. Her thoroughness and attentiveness went above and beyond my expectations. It can be very daunting trying to get your child to sleep better, but with Rebecca’s expert guidance the process was smooth and successful. I highly recommend Rebecca’s services. She is a wonderful coach!"
"...After our first conversation, I began to feel that there may be some hope for us in correcting my son's terrible sleep pattern. My husband and I implemented the strategies that Rebecca recommended and were surprised with how fast our son responded. We now have the tools needed to help teach our son to self sooth and to fall asleep without carrying him around and rocking him to sleep..."
-Karen and Michael W., East Northport, N.Y.

-Liz V., NY
"...I needed help, and all I needed to do was ask for it. After speaking to Dr. Elissa Rubin one day, she recommended calling Rebecca. I sat on it for a while, and then made the call. It was the best thing I did, and I regret not calling her sooner! Rebecca is kind and compassionate and made me feel like I am not alone in the sleep deprived world. She offered me guidance and step by step support to get me through this difficult time..."
