Meet Alex CERTIFIED CHILD SLEEP CONSULTANT
Hi there! I'm Alex Warrack, Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant with Bella Luna Family. I live outside of Toronto, Ontario with my supportive husband, Jeff, and our energetic, independent daughter!
My Journey To Sleep Consulting
I attended university and majored in Women's Studies and went on to achieve a post-graduate degree for Autism and special behaviours.
Before joining the Bella Luna Family team in May 2021, I worked in many roles within the Ontario Autism program. I was able to couple my love of helping others with my university education, supporting families as an Instructor Therapist, ABA Therapist and a family support specialist.
I've taken all of my education, plus my professional and personal experience to help neurotypical and neurodiverse families with their children's sleep!
My mission has always been to serve children and their families in supporting skill development so they can achieve their full potential. I never imagined continuing this supportive work as a pediatric sleep consultant until I realized how important sleep is for development and growth for all of us.
Why I Became a Sleep Consultant
When I was preparing for motherhood, I researched the best gear, best diapers, how to successfully breastfeed, and so much more. What I wasn't prepared for were my labor & delivery experience; an extended hospital stay after birth; and the sleep deprivation that started immediately. I'm a person who needs sleep!
When my daughter wasn't sleeping at night or needed to be held for all naps, fear, anxiety and self-doubt would creep in. Like all Moms, I wanted my daughter to be healthy and thrive, but I was missing the tools I needed to help her be a healthy sleeper.
When my daughter was 4 months old and I was seriously sleep deprived, I started the Family Sleep Institute's Child Sleep Consultant certification course to help my family get the rest we needed. Then I was able to take everything I learned to support families in my own community!
Alex was an incredible sleep consultant and very supportive. As new parents, we were worried we wouldn’t be successful at sleep training. Alex helped keep us on track and after 1 weeks, our 6 month old daughter is averaging 10-12 hours of sleep per night with only 1-2 brief wake ups! She also never napped during the day and is now sleeping at least 40 mins per nap and even putting herself back to sleep. Her transformation has been amazing and it has also helped myself and my husband get much needed restorative sleep ourselves. I highly recommend Bella Luna - if you’re on the fence, take the leap!!
Alli, Mom to a 6 month old
We worked with Alex to help solve the sleeping issues of our 4-year-old and 6-year-old. Our 4 yo was a great sleeper until she turned 4 and we took the Nuk away. I then became her comfort and she could not sleep unless I was next to her. We went from a great sleeper to being up several times a night, I felt like I had a newborn again! My 6-year-old has never been a great sleeper and we had to lay with her to get her to go to sleep. Then she'd come in our bed in the middle of the night. Both of these situations made life stressful for bedtime and also made it so that we could not have a night away. We worked with Bella Luna and not our kids fall asleep on their own and are able to put themselves back to sleep! BEST money I ever spent! We actually have time to ourselves now and get much more restful sleep.
Jenny, Mom to a 4 & 6 Year Old
So grateful for Alex and her support to help our little one get on a proper sleeping schedule for his age. In just a week, he was napping in his crib, and not being nursed to sleep! All the materials that were shared with us are also very helpful 🙂 Highly recommend Bella Luna & our sleep trainer, Alex 🙂
Rya, Mom to an 11 month old
We worked with Alex and our experience was amazing! She listened to all our concerns and had so much empathy and compassion. She worked with our little one's needs and created a sleep plan that has helped our daughter go down much easier and sleep till the morning. No more early morning wake ups! This experience has truly helped everyone in our family and we are so grateful!

My sleep philosophy
It all comes down to routine and consistency. Once we set the stage, our children can learn the valuable life skill of healthy sleep habits.
