Are You Ready to Sleep Again? Take the First Step With Me By “Saying Yes to The Rest”!

Hi, I am so glad you are here! My name is Missy Morrison Charko, and I am a Certified Pediatric  Sleep Sense™ Consultant and Founder of Say Yes to the Rest Pediatric Sleep Consulting.

My journey in child sleep started much like most of you, struggling and exhausted with a nine-month-old baby girl who would only sleep ON ME!

Or so I thought! You see, as a first-time Mom, I had no idea what a Sleep Consultant was. I had read books and googled everything about baby sleep, only to find myself overwhelmed and not sure where to turn. 

A friend suggested a Sleep Consultant, and while I was hesitant, I took a leap of faith. My husband and I never looked back. Our daughter went from being a terrible sleeper to an amazing one with the guidance of our Consultant.

I am now the proud Mom of two children who both sleep very well, and as a Stay-at-Home-Mom and Entrepreneur growing a business that could not be more important! 

Having structure and routine are so important to our children’s growth and development.  After I had my second child, I knew that Sleep Consulting was something I had to pursue! I wanted to help the other parents out there who are exhausted, frustrated and feeling helpless, get their rest back and help their children learn independent sleep!  

I am originally from the United States, with a B.F.A. from Syracuse University in New York.  I had a wonderful career as a dancer and singer and toured the United States and Canada in many shows over the years.  I still teach dance to young children when I am not teaching sleep!

I now reside in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my family, and love that I get the opportunity to work with clients from all over the world, thanks to modern technology. I am a member of  International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (IACSC),  a contributing editor on child sleep for BC Parent Magazine, have been featured on Mom.comModern Mama’s Baby Guide, CBC Radio Vancouver, as well as numerous parenting and health/wellness podcasts.  I was a Guest Speaker The Baby Show: Vancouver in October 2023!

I have had comprehensive sleep training under the tutelage of Dana Obleman and the Sleep Sense™ Program, am a member of the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants, and continue to educate myself with the ongoing and always evolving scientific sleep research.  I believe that every family dynamic is different and deserves to be given a plan that will suit their individual and unique needs.
