Jenni June and Naturepedic want to help your kids sleep

Jenni June, bringing sleep to babies and parents!

Jenni June, bringing sleep to babies and parents!

At Naturepedic, we appreciate the goodness of sleep, and so does our friend celebrity sleep specialist Jenni June. Beginning May 31, 2014, Jenni June kicks off her latest 15-city West Coast tour, bringing good sleep to babies, toddlers and parents!

The tour begins in California with The Family Sleep Event, made up of four 20-30 minute educational discussions. Jenni June understands the frustration parents experience when children won’t sleep, so she makes sessions fun, engaging and most of all empowering. Sessions are designed to give parents immediate tips they can begin using that same night as well as suggestions for building overall good sleep habits in children. Jenni will also cover ways parents can green-proof the sleep environment of their children to promote healthier sleep.

The first 100 registered guests per city get a gift bag with items valued at $80, including a Naturepedic Organic Cotton Fitted Crib Sheet. At the event, parents can also browse baby products from Naturepedic and other companies.

The tour ends on August 9 in Denver. Naturepedic is sponsoring The Family Sleep Event tour and we are thrilled, not only because of our commitment to Safe, Healthy Sleep™  (we are the most highly awarded crib mattress manufacturer in the U.S.), but also because we really like Jenni June!
