Chenae Day – Your Baby & Toddler Sleep Consultant
San antonio, tx
Hey y’all! I’m Chenae Day and I live in San Antonio, Texas with my husband, Ryan, and our two beautiful girls, Isabella and Esmé. I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy and graduated from the Army-Baylor DPT program in 2013. When I got out of the Army in 2016 we packed up and headed straight to Texas!
When Esmé was born, I had to go back to work at 6 weeks. I was able to do some intermittent working from home, but soon had to be away from her for 40+ hours a week. Esmé was never one to “sleep through the night”. She got a good 6-hour stretch maybe twice in her first 6 months of life. By 7 months, she was waking up 2-3 times a night and sometimes staying awake for hours. To put her to bed, I tried nursing her to sleep, rocking, walking back and forth in her room until I made a trail in the carpet, formula instead of nursing (did not help by the way) – you name it, we tried it. I wasn’t sharing the night-feed load with anyone either! Needless to say, I was exhausted.
One day, on my way to work at about 6:00 AM, I fell asleep while driving in the right lane down I-10. By the grace of God, I woke up in the left lane, and not in a hospital bed (or not at all)! It scared me enough to realize I needed to do something. I was at my wits end. I felt alone, frustrated, and like I was doing something wrong. Being a Mommy wasn’t supposed to be this hard!
I found Kaley online and right after our initial consultation I felt more at ease. She understood where I was coming from (she’d been there!) and helped me make a plan. The first night was the hardest, but after 3 nights, Esmé was able to put herself back to sleep in less than 5 minutes! And in less than 2 weeks she was sleeping through the night!
My life changed significantly. My boss even asked what was different about me. “I’ve slept!” I told him. Getting more sleep made me a better mom, wife and employee. I didn’t enjoy the sleep deprivation but I thought I just had to deal with it as long as Esmé needed. I learned so much from Kaley and when she asked me to join her team, I accepted readily! I want to help other Mamas out there who are in my shoes! You don’t have to be miserable and completely drained like I was!
