What is infant sleep coaching?

Assessment

The process begins with a thorough assessment of the whole sleep picture. This may include details about sleep schedules, routines, bedtime rituals, meal times, daily activities, children’s temperament, relevant life impacts, and any specific sleep-related challenges.

Collaboration

You know your family best. We will collaborate to discuss your family’s unique needs and goals. Together, we will tailor a plan to the specific situation, preferences and needs of your family. 

Customized Plan

Based on the assessment and the collaboration, I will create a customized sleep plan that outlines my recommendations and plan for improving sleep, including adjustments to routines, nap times, bedtime, wake times, feeding schedules, and other relevant factors. This will have additional resources and information that you can refer back on when new sleep challenges arise in the future

Guidance and Support

I provide guidance and support throughout the process. I offer advice, answer questions, and help troubleshoot any issues that arise during the implementation of the sleep plan.

Communication

Most of my sleep coaching packages offer daily email access. This allows you to ask questions, seek guidance, and receive ongoing support as we work through the plan.

Philosophy

I believe that when we are well rested we are more able to connect to ourselves, our loved ones, and our values, and in turn, empower our children to flourish and thrive, day and night. With a background in Attachment and Positive Discipline, I believe in using science and evidence-based approaches to guide our practices and rituals in promoting healthy sleep, age-appropriate rest, and restoring deserved sleep, all while fostering emotional bonds and trust in relationships. I recognize that while sleep difficulties are common, each family, child and sleep situation is unique. This is why I create individually tailored sleep plans with your family specifically in mind. 

 

I believe we can all access the sleep we need, sometimes we just need a little help to get there. 

 

Cry it out

I specialize in attachment based methods and only advise the use of evidence-based and science-backed methods. Due to the lack of thorough research, I do not prescribe the use of the extinction method, also known as “Cry It Out”. While I completely understand the desperation in the need for sleep, I believe I can help with many alternative methods that are known for their ability to maintain healthy attachment while achieving better sleep and relationship outcomes. While I believe that some crying can be a normal and expected response to change and emotional expression, I will never advise my clients to leave children crying without support. 

 

 

Co sleeping

I acknowledge that co-sleeping is an ancient practice, and the concept of solitary sleep is relatively recent, predominantly stemming from Western cultural norms. While I’m unable to recommend co-sleeping due to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines against it, I wholeheartedly support families who opt for co-sleeping. I can provide guidance on safe sleeping practices, address sleep-related challenges, and offer assistance in ensuring a secure sleep environment. I am committed to empowering families with the necessary information on risks and safety, allowing them to make informed choices that align with their values and comfort levels regarding their sleep practices. I believe that all families deserve access to safe sleeping information, no matter their sleep practices. 

 

While many families choose co-sleeping, some turn to it when they feel unsure about other methods to help their baby sleep. It’s important to note that co-sleeping may not suit every family, and I can assist in making adjustments if it doesn’t work for your family.
