hi, I'm lindsey, your sleep consultant.
Hi there! I’m Lindsey McGonegal, M.A., founder of Little Lamb Childhood Sleep Consultants and certified baby and toddler sleep consultant. With decades of childcare experience and degrees in psychology and pastoral care, I bring a unique perspective that will help you make life-changing improvements to your little lamb’s sleep- and yours!
my little lambs
my journey into sleep Consulting
The little lambs pictured above are the main reasons I founded Little Lamb Childhood Sleep Consultants. Little Lamb #1 was not the best sleeper, but sweet #2 took sleep deprivation to a whole new level! I thought I knew enough from #1 to get it together for #2, but come to find out, there is a whole lot more to know about baby sleep than I ever imagined. I finally reached out for support from a wonderful sleep consultant, and what I learned completely changed our lives for the better. After experiencing the true suffering of prolonged, chronic sleep deprivation, I became determined to help other sleep-deprived families achieve the same life-changing results.
The science of childhood sleep is vast, and the art of applying it is a challenge, but getting to help other parents shepherd their babies and toddlers into restorative, healthy sleep is an endeavor that I’m thrilled to take on. Since becoming a certified baby and toddler sleep consultant, I get to help families every day say goodbye to sleepless nights, bedtime battles, and dreaded 20-minute naps.
So take the first step towards healthy sleep today and schedule your free 15 minute consult. Because a well-rested family is a happy family.

It’s funny when you’re in it you can’t see through it. Lindsey could see the light at the end of the tunnel even when we couldn’t. I can’t think of one service since our son, Carson was born that has helped us as much as she did. I feel like I googled sleep plans every night at 10 pm, 1 am and 4 am. That was our schedule for 7 months. I would try the tips and nothing helped. Working with Lindsey made it very clear why. It is because it wasn’t specific for my baby. That is the expertise that Lindsey provides. She went through every aspect of our routine and day. Her comprehensive plan was custom tailored to our family. Following her advice immediately showed positive results and after 4 weeks we were and still are finally consistently sleeping on the schedule Lindsey provided. My only regret is not finding her sooner. I would suggest to anyone even considering Little Lamb to do it sooner rather than later. Lindsey’s guidance and support through this sleep milestone has made a huge improvement in my life; my work performance has improved, my relationship with my husband has changed to enjoying time together as opposed to just surviving the nights together. I have finally graduated from a top knot and chapstick to real jeans and mascara. Most importantly, I have more patience for Carson and I can’t wait to see him when he wakes up. That has been the true blessing and joy that can come from everyone getting sleep. Thank you a million times!
I Just had twins (2 months old) and they are my 3rd and 4th kids. I WISH I would have had Lindsey to help me out with my other 2 babies, but I'm so glad I have her helping me now. She's got so many suggestions that target my unique needs. Of course, the twins are never doing the same thing, never on the same schedule... and Lindsey has been so patient with my endless amount of questions, late night desperate texts, and constant need to try new things for each baby... She follows up to see how things are going. It's easy to be vulnerable with her about the challenges of caring for babies. She makes you feel normal and not alone! Even my husband is impressed that I've been able to "figure out" the twins faster than with our other two. My secret? Lindsey!
I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful Lindsey is! She not only has a wealth of knowledge, but is the sweetest most supportive person. She was super flexible, responsive, and encouraging throughout the entire process. She helped me get my 11 month old to drop the multiple feeds she was getting at night, and we even got my baby on a great nap schedule despite a very strong willed attitude! I didn’t realize how many pieces there are to sleep (nutrition, naps, timing, etc) and have learned so much. I wish I would’ve found her a LONG time ago! You won’t find anyone better.
I wish I had started with Little Lamb Sleep Consultants earlier, what a lifesaver! My 6 month old son has never been a great sleeper but I wasn't sure what was normal since this is my first baby. Lindsey provided a comprehensive evaluation of his sleep patterns and gave me a personalized plan very quickly. Once I started following the plan I felt so much better and more in control because she really prepared me with what to expect. It's only been a week but his sleep has already improved drastically, I feel like a new person! Lindsey is super understanding and always available for support. I definitely recommend this service to anyone with a baby who would like more sleep- so basically anyone with a baby:) Thank you so much Lindsey!
Lindsey is amazing at what she does. She has helped me with both of my children at a crucial time. My one year old was in the habit of waking at 4:45 to 5:15 everyday for the day and I knew that that was way too early for both of us to get up. She talked me through what the plan should be and I implemented it right away. Now he goes to bed at 6:30 and wakes up at 6:30. She also helped me with his napping transition and what times are the best windows for his naps. We have a program set for my 4 year old daughter to get her back in her own room . I'm excited to see Lindsey's knowledge work in this area too!
Say “hello” to the insides of your eyelids! With Lindsey’s customized plan, and consult after its implementation, I was able to get my little one and myself more rest! Somehow, it even trickled over to my older kiddo for whom during her infancy I had no sleep guidance. I will always be grateful to Lindsey for the gift of a good night’s rest!
Lindsey is very knowledgeable about baby sleep! Many books I’ve read about babies and sleep are “my way or the highway” and if it doesn’t work it’s because you weren’t doing it right. Lindsey is very flexible and easy to talk to! She listened to all the factors in my baby’s life and took them all into consideration to provide a plan that was individualized to us. And my 3 month old baby just slept through the night!
