The Slumber SquadMeet Tiffany Hilgenberg
Pediatric Sleep Consultant from Des Moines, Iowa
Hi, I'm Tiffany Hilgenberg
Pediatric Sleep Specialist
Welcome! I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant with the specially trained, and talented Tiny Transitions Slumber Squad. Born and raised in a small Iowan suburb, I appreciate close-knit, personalized connections, and pride myself on bringing that experience to all my clients!
As a wife of a first responder, and a mother of a loving boy, Haze, I know first-hand how long, lonely, and quite frankly hopeless your nights may seem with a child; And that’s why I became a Pediatric Sleep Consultant to help you know that You. Are. Not. Alone. I am here to bring you HOPE, and SLEEP!
I remember my husband leaving for his routine 24-hour shift the 3rd day we got home from the hospital… “I got this we’ll be fine.. Be safe, I love you, see you in the morning!” Then the crying, unsettledness, yawning, pure exhaustion, fear, anxiety set in. I knew from then on that if I was going to be doing overnights alone very routinely I needed help, I needed sleep, I needed support. I needed HOPE! It was then that I started researching and educating myself on a gentle sleep method used by Tiny Transitions and the Slumber Made Simple™ Approach. Soon our nights began to seem a little less hopeless, a lot more restful, and I began to feel like a loving, capable mother that I always dreamed of being! (Some days I even felt like a Superhero Mom!) I quickly learned the more I educated myself on my little one’s scientific & biological sleep mechanisms, that I was able to better emphasize with him and better able to be the mom he needed me to be!
Many years of being a Childcare Professional, and a few years as a Licensed Dental Assistant in the Pediatric field has filled my heart with a passion for pediatrics and given me insightful experience with the astonishing minds of children. My passion, experience, desire to help families like yours, Courtney’s generosity in bringing me onto the Tiny Transitions Team, extensive training, and guided support has led me to where I am today- here and ready to support, guide, and help you!
We all want to be superhero parents, but it is nearly impossible when you are running on sleep deprivation mode. I am thrilled to learn more about you and help bring your family HOPE and much-needed sleep, by implementing gentle sleep approaches and methods!
Being a Sleep Consultant is near and dear to me, as I too have seen the impact that sleep deprivation can have and while I locally service the Des Moines, IA metro area in-home, I work with clients virtually around the world!

Sleep Success Testimonials
Our sleep consultant, Tiffany, was fantastic to work with for our youngest child (2 1/2 years old). He had frequent wakings throughout the night (never upset, but it was very typical for him to get out of bed 4-6 times each night, which meant none of us were getting enough sleep).
It’s been a week since we completed a 3-week program with Tiffany/Tiny Transitions, and our toddler is now sleeping through the night (and we are, too!). We even traveled to the grandparents’, and there were no issues
The tips and tricks, coaching, and encouragement we received from Tiffany was life-changing. When our program ended, she made sure we were set up for success. Our only regret is not doing this sooner!
We are BEYOND HAPPY we decided to use Tiffany with Tiny Transitions! Such a life changer! Prior to starting our sleep plan, my husband and I thought we had a pretty good handle on our little one’s sleep schedule and knowing what she needed. Once she turned about 8 months and hit that major sleep regression, it never seemed to end….. just this constant battle of many night wakings, tirelessly trying to get her down for her naps, and when we did it would be very short lived. By the time she was almost 11 months we were so frustrated, and didn’t know what we were doing wrong or how to fix the problem. By fate, Tiffany reached out at the perfect time! Long story short, our little girl is sleeping amazingly now, and so are we! Tiffany does a great job walking you through each step during your specific plan, answers all questions, is there for encouragement, and follows up with you even after your plan is complete. I would highly recommend using Tiffany and her expertise, no matter how big or small your child’s sleep obstacles are. I just wish we would have connected with her sooner! Thanks Tiffany!!
