Welcome to Tip Top Sleep, a website dedicated to helping you achieve the optimum amount of sleep every day. We understand that sleep is often neglected in our busy lives, but we are here to change that. Our team of experts, led by Michelle, a 54-year-old wife, mother of two, and grandmother of one, has over 50 years of combined experience in the realm of sleep.
Michelle, our founder, is a born sleeper, who rarely has trouble falling or staying asleep. However, this all changed when she met her husband 25 years ago. Her husband was not a sleeper at all, and would often get out of bed while still asleep. He would have a leisurely cup of tea before breakfast, even on weekends, and he carried a sleep phobia, worrying that he would not achieve enough sleep every night.
Michelle listened to her husband snore for 18 years, always trying to persuade him to seek help, which he eventually did. He was diagnosed with sleep apnea, and now uses a “machine” to assist with his breathing.
Their child also had sleeping issues as a baby, and it wasn’t until years later that they discovered it was due to lower intestinal reflux. Now, as an adult, he takes prescribed medication to manage the condition.
Michelle’s passion for sleep intensified when her grandchild was born in December 2016. The little one was a great sleeper until 9 months old, and then began experiencing every sleeping issue a new mother can experience.
However, Michelle’s sleep struggles did not end there. In 2018, she was diagnosed with Auto-Immune Hepatitis, a disease where her immune system attacks her liver. This has led to medication-induced insomnia, and Michelle is surviving on only 3-4 hours of sleep a night.
Despite these struggles, Michelle has remained passionate about the importance of sleep, and has implemented strategies to manage her own sleep and the sleep of those around her.
