Will I have to stop breastfeeding in order to sleep coach?


No, you can still breastfeed during and after sleep coaching. I will work with you to create a customized sleep plan that fits your family's needs.

Will my child cry during the sleep coaching process?


Some tears are inevitable during the sleep coaching process as crying is a way for babies and toddlers to communicate to us how they are feeling since they do not always have the verbal skills to do so.  What's important to remember is that not all crying is the same and that the tears that occur will most likely be due to frustration.  With consistent, loving support your little one will quickly learn that you are there to comfort him/her and the frustration will subside.  By being there and offering support and reassurance, your little one is able to learn how to fall asleep and stay asleep in a safe and secure way.  

WHAT SLEEP APPROACH DO YOU USE?


Taking into consideration that no two children or families are alike, I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all sleep approach.  My extensive training and experience allows me to draw from a variety of sleep training methods (excluding cry-it-out) to find the one that's the most effective and the best fit for each family.  My flexible way of approaching sleep coaching allows me to create more supportive, individualized sleep solutions for each family that rely on step-by-step changes in your child's nap and nighttime sleep routines where your child learns to sleep better, longer and more soundly all while feeling loved and reassured by mom and/or dad.

How long will the sleep coaching process take?


Each family has its own sleep challenge and specific sleep goals.  In general, the more committed and consistent you are, the faster and easier the process will be.  Older children typically take longer than babies and require a bit more patience. On average, the amount of time spent during the active phase of the sleep coaching process is 2-3 weeks.

Can I continue to co-sleep or room share with my child?


Yes, if that is your preference and you follow the guidelines for safe co-sleeping, I will work with you to create a plan that works best for your family.
