Some Answers About Infants…
Why work with me?
I also know what a world of difference a well-rested baby makes to the family. My third son learned good sleep skills from the start, and he was such a well-rested, happy boy. We were all well-rested enough to enjoy each stage, instead of stressed trying to manage a chronically overtired, miserable baby, which we experienced with our first two children.
It brings me such joy to be able to help you go from being an exhausted and frustrated parent to a well-rested, happy family. I truly care about each child and each family and it is my goal to help bring you to the world of restful sleep.
I understand how challenging and stressful it can be for parents to make changes to their child’s sleep habits while second-guessing every step of the process. My focus is to educate parents to help their child get the quality sleep they need. I will work with you to create a sleep plan based on your child’s needs, so everyone in the family can get a good night’s sleep. I provide support throughout the entire process, so you never feel lost or alone. Good sleep is possible. Let me show you how!
When is the right time to start sleep training?
It is also important to note that we will need 2 weeks of consistency while you implement our program so that you will not be traveling or having house guests. Baby needs to practice falling asleep at home, in her crib as often as possible. The more consistent we can be with this, the less confusing it will be for her, and the faster she will learn these sleep skills.
Does my child need a night feed?
Can I continue to co-sleep?
What about crying?
When we work together, the amount of crying is considerably less than if you were to try sleep training alone with a sleep method off of the internet or a book. I have a very holistic approach, incorporating schedules, routines, ensuring good feedings, in addition to the independent sleep skills, which is all tailored to your family with my personalized support, which will help ease your baby through this transition.
How much crying really depends on your child’s personality, how big her sleep debt is, and how overtired she is. Crying is a symptom of fatigue, confusion, and frustration, and may not be prevented.
I will guide you on how to support and reassure your baby as she learns how to fall asleep on her own. The good news is that when done right, crying is minimal and success is achieved. Once babies learn how to fall asleep on their own – which can happen pretty quickly – the crying decreases, then goes away! It’s very short term with huge rewards for everyone in the family at the end of the journey.
Will someone else be able to put my child down?
How fast will I see results?
Naps can take 1-4 weeks to solidify, so they may not be perfect at the completion of our time, particularly if your baby is on the cusp of a nap transition. These typically happen at 3-4 months (4-3 naps), 6-9 months (3-2 naps) and 12-15 months (2-1 nap). Any transition of dropping a nap can and often will take extra time as her body adjusts to this change. At the end of our time together, she will have gained great skills and you will have learned the tools and gained the confidence to continue moving forward as her naps lengthen.
My goal is for each of my families to achieve their sleep goals, and I will do everything I can to help you get to this point.
