Small Business Saturday: Michelle Read Sleep Solutions - Greater Austin Moms

Hi Michelle, we’re so excited to learn more about you!
I’m Michelle Read, I’ve been married to Don for 41 years. We have two grown boys, and one daughter in law. We’ve Lived in the Austin area for 25 years. I was an Elementary School Teacher for 22 years, tutor and nanny. I’m currently a night nanny for newborns and a Pediatric Sleep Consultant. In my spare time, I enjoy riding bikes with hubby, being with my family, listening to music and relaxing at the beach. I love children and animals – God’s best creations!

Yes, we love animals and babies around here! Tell us a little bit more about Michelle Read Sleep Solutions.
I am a Pediatric Sleep Consultant for infants through 5-year-olds. I work with tired parents showing them how to teach their little ones to sleep better, longer, and independently. I remember what it was like to not get a good night’s sleep night after night when my boys were young. Sleep deprivation is debilitating. It can adversely affect your well-being causing depression, anxiety, high blood pressure and weight gain just to name a few. Being a new parent doesn’t mean sleep is optional. What sets me apart is my determination to help parents reach their goals for their baby’s sleep and the fact that I support them throughout the whole process. They are never alone!

What I love most about this business is those early morning texts that say, “Oh my gosh, my baby slept through the night!!!” I also love the one-on-one relationship that I enjoy with parents. (usually the Mom but not always) It is such an honor to be trusted to help a family with a young baby/child and know that they are getting good rest and will be able to tackle whatever comes their way.

Where are you located?

My business is done through GoogleMeet (like Zoom), phone calls, and texts, so I can work with anyone anywhere! (Austin to Zionsville)

Are there any challenges you’re facing in your business?
My biggest challenge is that my technical skills are not up to my own standards. I’m having to learn a lot from scratch like how to do reels on IG (Send help) and how to use my CMR effectively.

Let’s talk Austin favorites…
Favorite restaurants?
Nearly all of them. What’s not to like? Valentina’s, Franklin’s, Maudies, Home Live, Hopdoddy…

And favorite coffee shop?

Michelle will be speaking at Fit4Mom on Tuesday, November 15th at 9:30am at Dick Nichols Park.
Bring your baby in the stroller, work out and get “Six Tips for Better Sleep.” And, your first Fit4Mom class is FREE!
