I am certified by the Family Sleep Institute which focuses on positive psychological research. My sleep plan approach is adaptable based on your child’s temperament and your parenting philosophy. No two little ones are the same, therefore no sleep plan is the same! For some families, they need a lot of contact and interaction during the sleep training phase. Some like to have less parental involvement. Both approaches are okay! There is no right or wrong, only what’s best for you.
We do not sleep train with babies under 4 months of age based on the estimated due date (EDD). However, that doesn’t mean you have to wait until they are four months to establish good sleep habits. Parents who take the time to inform themselves about what to expect and work to establish good sleep habits from the beginning may find they have to do little to no sleep training at all.
Depending on your family’s individual sleep challenges, I will formulate my recommendations in an easy to follow plan, breaking down your child’s optimal routine, sleep schedule and environment to transform your little one’s sleep. For night wakings and short naps, you will have a response method that suits your parenting philosophy and your child’s temperament, so that you can respond to your child in a way that is comforting, consistent and conducive to restorative sleep. Your bespoke sleep plan breaks down your pathway to a predictable, nourishing and peaceful night’s sleep for your family, step by step; no more guesswork!
The biggest impact on the success of your child’s sleep is consistency. If you can trust the process, follow through on your chosen method and implement your recommended sleep schedule and plan in full, you will see a dramatic improvement in your little ones sleep with consolidated nighttime sleep and longer naps within 2 weeks; with significant improvement seen in the first few night’s! Methods centered in high parental involvement (lot’s of contact) do take longer to see improvements, but to most families it is worth the added time to utilize a method they are comfortable with; with the same successful end results.
In the end, you will begin enjoying more sleep for everyone in the family!
That’s okay! I can support families nationwide through virtual video consultations, phone calls and email support.
Yes! I also offer Ask Me Anything phone sessions. They are more of a DIY option, where I can give you all the info you need, but you’re in charge of implementing to make it all happen. For more complex issues I do recommend going with a half-hour phone call.
