WILL MY BABY BE LEFT TO CRY IT OUT?
Absolutely not. While I can educate you on this method it is generally not something that I practice. I don't recommend letting any baby cry for so long, without being checked on, that they finally fall asleep out of sheer exhaustion. Now, with that being said we do need to be realistic when it comes to tears being shed. If someone came along and took away your favorite pillow and said you're never getting it back again you'd probably be pretty angry. You might not cry about it, but you'd be upset. This is what your baby is going to experience and feel too. Crying is their sole way of communication and we have to always keep in mind that we are not hurting or abandoning them in this process. We are simply setting them up for success with the proper and healthy sleep habits that they will begin to use for the rest of their lives.
WHAT SLEEP METHODS DO YOU OFFER?
Babies are not a one size fit all. While there are many great services out there - we take pride in offering fully customized sleep plans that fit your baby's needs as well as your parenting style. We have a variety of different methods that have all proven to be successful. You can expect a sleep plan and full support tailor made to your situation and baby.
WHAT DOES YOUR PACKAGES INCLUDE?
My packages are not solely about nighttime sleep. While that is a big factor as to why a family will seek out a sleep consultant, it's not the sole thing you will be receiving from me. My sleep plans go over your complete 24hr day. It includes nighttime sleep and routine, naps, what to do when baby starts crying, sleep props, proper wake windows, early wakings and many other great tools and resources. It also includes any special circumstances that you may be facing and would like some support in as well.
