Frequently Asked Questions About Sleep Consulting

Who should hire a sleep consultant?

Parents who are tired of being tired. Early risings and night wakings are NOT non-negotiable parts of parenting.  Endless rocking, bouncing or toddler curtain calls are not fun for anyone.  Your baby or child just wants to sleep better too!  Do you struggle with nap time, or need guidance on navigating sleep transitions and milestones?  I can help, and I can make reaching your sleep goals as easy as possible on the whole family.

Why should I hire you?

I have the knowledge and skills to help you improve your child’s ability to sleep well, which will benefit the health and wellness of your entire family.  You can find an endless supply of free sleep training tips and tricks wherever you look, but advice can often seem contradictory and confusing, which makes implementing any plan consistently extremely difficult.  Tell me about your situation, your child, and your goals, and I will listen without judgement, and create an age appropriate customized sleep plan that you understand and are comfortable with.  Better yet, I’ll support you while you implement the plan to maximize sleep success.

Are you going to tell me to just cry it out?

The best part of my sleep success package is that the sleep plan I create for you is customized to your family, using an approach that you’re comfortable with.  Allowing children unlimited time and space to learn a new skill is one approach, but there are also other methods that allow for more parental involvement, and are equally effective.  Regardless of the method that a parent chooses, it is the consistency in which the method is implemented that is the biggest factor in how smoothly, quickly, and successfully the process goes.  While the sleep training method is a key piece in improving your child’s sleep, there are other factors, such as your child’s sleep environment, schedule, and routines, that may need adjusting to help ensure that any method you use is successful.

How long will this take to work?

You will be amazed at how quickly this process can be if the plan is implemented confidently and consistently. Night sleep typically comes together within one week, while day sleep can take several more weeks.  It’s important to note that all children are unique and bring their own personalities to the table, and other factors such as age, and chosen sleep training method will play a role in how long the process takes as well. The Sleep Success Package includes 2 weeks of follow up support while your customized plan is implemented.  This is typically enough time to get you well on your way to full sleep success if not entirely there.

Why is sleep so important?

Sleep is a biological need with numerous health benefits.  Sleep plays a significant role in strengthening the immune system, regulating body weight, and tissue healing.  It also aids in memory consolidation, problem solving, and regulates mood and emotion.  The most obvious benefit of a well rested child is that they are just more pleasant to be around, and well rested parents can find more joy in watching them learn and grow.
