The Slumber SquadMeet Kiley Pickett
Pediatric Sleep Consultant from Huntsville, Alabama
Hi, I'm Kiley Pickett
Pediatric Sleep Specialist
My name is Kiley and I’m from Sweet Home Alabama. Before becoming a sleep consultant, I earned a degree in Occupational Therapy and have since spent my time working with developmentally delayed children and post-surgical patients. My job consists of teaching disabled people how to function and thrive during everyday life.
I am married to a wonderful man and together we have a son called Nakoa. My husband, Micah, had a demanding job that requires him to work out of state. Before my son was born, I had everything perfectly planned out. I didn’t need any help and I didn’t want ANY visitors. I had it in the bag. I pictured a quiet, sleepy baby who I would read books to and share snuggles with.
Please, share a laugh with me as I tell you how it actually went down.
I had absolutely no idea what hit me. Breastfeeding and sleep deprivation took over and I was a complete mess. I needed (and wanted) all the help I could get. My son would scream for hours on end every evening (I now know he was chronically overtired). There was no peace in our home. I had slipped into postpartum depression and to this day, I know it was due to severe sleep deprivation. My marriage was suffering and so was my mental health.
I loved my son, but I was AFRAID of him. My anxiety had no limits.
After about a month of surviving on 2 hours of sleep a night, I knew something had to be done. I decided to take action. I spent every waking moment reading about sleep. I researched, took classes and read every book on sleep I could get my hands on. I became (and still am) obsessed with sleep.
Teaching Nakoa how to sleep quite literally saved my life. When we established healthy sleep habits, he turned into a different child. He no longer screams in the evenings. He coos, sings and laughs. My heart could burst from the joy he now brings us. We got our peaceful home back and we are all thriving.
My goal in life is to give parents the precious gift of rest. Being well rested isn’t a “luxury”; It’s a requirement. It’s impossible to pour from an empty cup. To be the best mom or dad you can possibly be, you have to take care of yourself.
You are worthy of rest.

Kiley is a miracle worker!!! My 4 month old son was having frequent night wakings and short naps throughout the day. I was losing my sanity!!! Kiley was so knowledgeable and we implemented a plan immediately! She was always there to answer my questions (even at 5am!) ???? After a week, my son was sleeping 10-12 hours a night and taking 1-2 hour naps during the day. This mama cannot thank Kiley enough!!
We are sleeping 12 hours all thanks to you, Kiley Pickett Suits! I still can’t believe how much success we had implementing your recommendations. Thank you for helping ALL OF US get our sleep back. You’re our sleep fairy!!!
Kiley is truly amazing! We started working with her when our son was three weeks old and I am so excited to continue to work with her as he grows. She helped us almost instantly get to one waking per night which is incredible for a newborn- and is teaching us so many great skills and giving us amazing tools along the way. She is always there to answer questions and gave me so much confidence and happiness in some of the hardest days. If you’re on the fence about working with her or wondering if it will be worth it- DO IT! It will!
