Sleep training for babies and young children can make a world of difference to infants, siblings, and parents. If you and your baby or toddler are having trouble establishing healthy sleep patterns, let me introduce you to some gentle sleep coaching methods that will change the way you feel about bedtime. As a certified sleep consultant, I provide several sleep training packages to address specific ages, common sleep problems, and developmental stages.
There are few things parents find as frustrating as having a child that doesn’t want to sleep. As babies develop so do their habits, and that includes both how and when they sleep. Teaching your child healthy sleep habits will not only help with their mental and physical development, but often helps their disposition, allowing them to feel happier in general. This sleep training package is designed to help families in need of sleep to learn gentle sleep coaching methods and techniques to ensure your baby is getting the rest they need.
This package begins with a 60 minute in home, phone, or Skype consultation. This consultation will include a full assessment of your child’s background, current sleeping habits and the sleep goals that you want to reach. At this point we will explore what sleep training options are available, answer questions, and address concerns to help you determine the sleep coaching methods you feel most comfortable with.
As a certified sleep consultant, I will provide you with a detailed, customized, step-by-step sleep plan for your child. This will be very easy to follow and will address any concerns we discussed during your 60 minute consultation.
The next step is a 30 minute phone call when we can review the sleep plan together. Your feedback during this call we help to determine whether its necessary to make changes to your sleep plan.
Throughout the next two weeks you have unlimited email/text support. Through these emails and text messages, we will be able to talk about any issues or concerns that have come up. Emails and text messages are typically answered within a few hours between the hours of 8 am and 7 pm.
You’ll receive follow up emails monthly for 3 months. During these emails I will check in to see how your sleep training is proceeding. If adjustments are needed, I can review your plan, what has happened, and make any necessary changes to sleep and wake times, routines and transitions.
