Frequently asked questions
Why should I hire a sleep consultant?
I'll work with your family to develop a customized program suited to your needs. Together we will go over every detail of your baby’s days, nights, temperament, eating habits, and then put together a detailed plan just for your child. We are going to spent time going through what to expect, what is working and what isn't, and you'll have a clear path to success before we implement any type of plan. During our time together, I am here for troubleshooting, support and making changes to your new sleep strategies as needed. Sometimes it is nice to have someone in your corner when you are trying to make a much needed change. There are SO many books and different pieces of advice available when it comes to getting children to sleep. Let me be your quick and easy resource when it comes to sleep!
When is the best time to work on sleep?
Anytime! From right before your baby arrives to when your child is starting school, healthy sleep habits are something we all need. I have many different packages that suit the various stages of your child's life. We'll work together to find the one that works for your family. One thing to note is that when we are implementing a new sleep strategy it is important to be home and 100% committed to consistency and routine for at least two - three weeks.
Can sleep services be guaranteed?
If you are looking at these sleep FAQ’s you are likely looking for change in your current sleep situation. I can help you and the methods I use for each client are proven to work time and time again. Parents play the biggest role in helping their children learn how to sleep. I will give you all the tools and support needed to make changes necessary to create good sleep skills but the implementation is out of my hands. Therefore I cannot guarantee my services. I will do everything in my power to help you reach your sleep goals and I want nothing more than to help my clients succeed, so let's find a plan that works for everyone that you'll commit to.
What package is the best option for my family?
That is what I am here for! Let's set up a free 15 minute consultation and we can explore what package is right for you and your child. Together we can talk about your child’s sleep issues, concerns and family sleep goals. We'll also talk about how we'll work together and what package best suits your needs.
How quickly will I see results?
Every child is so different! Therefore I could never predict exactly how your child will respond to learning their new sleep skills. Most parents do see results within a couple of days. Little ones catch on very fast and it is amazing to watch them develop their new found strategies.
What is your opinion on crying?
The best way to teach your child to sleep is to let them figure out how to do it on their own, and yes, this will probably involve some crying. Crying is your child’s way of protesting change and as we are making changes to their sleep habits there is likely going to be some protest. All of my sleep strategies are supportive for your child and I would never ask you to leave your child alone to cry nor would I ask you to ignore their cries. We’ll come up with a plan that everyone is comfortable with, one based on what you know about your child and their little personality.
