Hi! I'm Kelly Robson, owner of Baby Bliss Consulting and Pediatric Sleep Consultant in Omaha - certified through the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting. When I'm not providing consultations and teaching classes, you'll find me with my husband, four boys (ages 13, 11, 8 & 8), and our furry friend Oliver. I'm either on the bleachers, or parked in my favorite purple camping chair on the sidelines. I love rainy or snowy days when everything is canceled and my whole family is at home together. I also love dark chocolate, flavored coffee, and sweater weather.
Since graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I've spent the last 19 years in different training capacities, helping families adjust to life with newborns, solving sleep issues, and overcoming potty training nightmares.
When my first son was born, I decided not to return to work, but to stay home with him and be the best mother I could be. Unfortunately, I found myself completely unprepared! Luckily, a friend encouraged me to read "The Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. I am still a true believer in her strategies and continue to advise families I work with to get on an EASY schedule from day one! Twelve years later, I laugh when I look back at those first few nights at home with our son! Needless to say, I have learned a lot since then.
In 2006, I became a certified Sign2Me Instructor through Dr. Joseph Garcia's SIGN with your BABY® program. I launched Kelly’s Little Signers, to teach parents and childcare providers how to communicate with preverbal infants and toddlers through American Sign Language. I began teaching classes at local hospitals, colleges, childcare centers, and in-home day cares. Although my name has changed, my signing classes have not! To date, I have taught thousands of parents and providers how to sign with babies and toddlers. In 2007, I found myself pregnant again (another boy) and developing my second signing workshop. In 2018 I developed an on-line baby sign language class so parents and providers can learn to sign at their own pace, in the comfort of their own homes.
In 2009 I became a certified Happiest Baby Educator to teach parents and providers how to calm babies and help them sleep longer. In 2010, I had no idea that my path had been preparing me all along for my next challenge: I found myself pregnant with twin boys! Having had four boys in five years, I am confident that I have seen and tried everything!
When things calmed down a little at home, I changed my name from Kelly's Little Signers, to Baby Bliss Consulting, to broaden the range of services I provide. In addition to being a Baby Sleep Consultant, I recently became a certified Infant Massage Instructor and have enjoyed teaching parents about the soothing power of touch. Along with baby sign language, I also provide several different training classes for Nebraska providers including: Safe With You (preventing SIDS, Abusive Head Trauma, and Child Abuse & Neglect), Love & Logic, and play safe! be safe! (fire safety & prevention). I'm excited to meet you and learn how I can help your family!
