  • Daniel Weissbluth

    Daniel Weissbluth

    M.D., F.A.A.P.

    Blending a positive attitude and years of education and experience, Dr. Dan makes sure that a visit with him is smooth for kids and reassuring for parents. Dr. Dan attended Rosalind Franklin University of Medical Science/Chicago Medical School and is Board Certified. He completed his pediatric training at Indiana University Riley Children’s Hospital and is currently an Instructor of Clinical Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Behind the glasses, you’ll also find that Dr. Dan is fascinated by how today’s media affects the pediatric population. In fact, he co-created the Weissbluth Method Infant Nap App, the Weissbluth Method Toddler Bedtime App, and the Weissbluth Method Parenting Myth App for mobile devices. In addition, he co-authored Sleep Consult with his father, Marc Weissbluth. Dr. Dan also regularly contributes to the blog, Weissbluth Pediatrics where he shares his practical thoughts on trending parenting concerns, debunks popular mommy myths and hands out useful advice on a variety of topics. Though Dr. Dan is a technology man, he still appreciates simple ingenuity, just like in his favorite children’s book, Burt Dow Deep Water Man.

After spending several years practicing in Texas, she is thrilled to be back and enjoying the city’s ever-changing restaurant scene. She joined Weissbluth Pediatrics in the Spring of 2014.

  • Sami Skladany, R.N.

    Sami Skladany, R.N.

    Registered Nurse

    In a practice that prides itself on good sleepers, it is pure coincidence that one of Sami’s favorite books is The Napping House by Audrey and Don Wood. She is originally from Florida and has always known that she wanted a career in helping children. Her background as the neighborhood babysitter was great practice for nursing school as well as babysitting the staff at Weissbluth Pediatrics since 2013!
