Nope! I will never tell you that you have to do something that makes you uncomfortable. Leaving your baby to cry without any response is not necessary to teach them self-soothing skills. There are a variety of methods we can use and each will be tailored to what works best for you and your baby. Staying in the room with your baby is definitely an option in most cases.
Of course! There are ways to incorporate overnight feedings while teaching your baby to self-soothe. Many babies need to eat overnight until around 7-9 months. We will always look to your pediatrician for guidance on night feedings. The feeding schedule may look a little different than before, but we will take your baby’s needs into account while making a plan that is right for you.
You can, but it isn’t always advisable. Depending on your baby’s age and temperament, we will discuss what is the best decision for where to sleep coach. Often, it is definitely possible to coach your baby while also sharing a room (or even a bed if that is your goal).
Unfortunately, no. Children cry as a way to communicate that they don’t like the changes being made. When you are sleep coaching, you are making changes that your child initially will not be happy about. Even with a gentle method, there will likely be some tears. The difference with the methods I use are that you will be able to respond to your child when he cries.
I offer several methods of sleep coaching for my clients. I don’t use a “one-size-fits-all” approach and will present options for each family. My methodology is holistic and takes into consideration the whole family unit when choosing what approach is best suited for you. The methods I use are proven to be effective and range from offering lots of parental support to very little.
I cannot make any guarantees when it comes to sleep coaching. Each situation and family is vastly different and there are many factors that come into play when coaching. The main component of success will be based on the parent’s ability to stay consistent and follow the provided plan. Therefore, the main predictor of your success is out of my hands.
I begin working with sleep coaching clients as early as 18 weeks. For parents that are looking for newborn support, I offer a New Baby Consultation to get you off on the right foot. I work with children up to age six.
It’s definitely not too late! I work with kids up to age six. It is never too late to teach your child healthy sleep habits.
It can be especially difficult when you have more than one child not sleeping well. I have worked with families with multiple children who need to learn better sleep habits. Whether you have twins or kids of various ages, we can come up with a plan to coach them all to a better night’s sleep.
Or having quiet afternoons while your little one naps. Sounds amazing, right? We offer instant downloadable courses or more personalized one on one consultations- uniquely designed for your unique family.
