About Izani Jacobs

Free State, Bloemfontein

I’m living on a farm with my husband and 3 kids (4, 5 and 7 years) near a very small town, Tweespruit in the Free State.

Having 3 kids so close to each other, and having a full time job, we had no choice but to get our children in a good sleeping routine early on, and all 3 of them were sleeping through the night from 3 months old. I was a Mathematics teacher for 9 years at the local school but decided to become a full time mom when my oldest daughter had to go to boarding school in Bloemfontein.

In the meantime my paths have crossed with Good Night, and its the best decision I’ve made, because now I can help other parents as well to find the joy in life again after having a full nights sleep and educate others on the importance of sleep.
