“No, I’m not plugging a national chain of gyms, I’m letting you know that when you come to me you’re in a safe space. Over my years of infant sleep training along Philadelphia’s Main Line I’ve seen just about everything, so not much surprises me these days. I also know that by the time parents seek my help, they’re exhausted and looking for a solution. This is why Gift of Sleep Consulting is a judgment-free zone.”
Infant sleep training: been there, seen it, own the t-shirt
Whether you’re co-sleeping or rocking your baby to sleep each night, I’m not here to judge. What I will say is that I’d rather you be room-sharing than co-sleeping for both you and your baby’s sake, but only because I want you both to get a good night’s rest! The reality is that you’re not the first and you won’t be the last to share that there are roadblocks preventing your infant from getting a good night’s sleep.
Many parents put their baby’s in their cribs after they’re already asleep and they fall into a cycle of holding or rocking baby until they’re asleep and putting them down again. Many parents don’t understand why their baby is having issues — until I ask them how they’d react to falling asleep in one place and waking in another. Scary thought, right? Many of the families who come to me just need an outsider to take a thorough look at what’s going on and offer suggestions.
Sleep training a toddler: breaking the bed-hogging bandit
We’ve all seen the memes with parents in bed and a toddler’s feet right in their faces or taking up most of the bed. No matter how big the bed you buy, when you share with a toddler you’ll spend the night vying for space!
Sleep training toddlers involves keeping them in their rooms, in their beds and asleep. For some families, this may seem like an impossible feat, but that’s where I come in. Whether your toddler is still feeding at night or has been in your bed for months — I’m not here to judge, I’m here to help.
If you’re looking for a sleep coach for baby, whether in the Philadelphia area or anywhere around the world (I do video conferences), you’re likely feeling vulnerable and raw. I understand that the last thing you want is to feel judged — you really just want someone to listen and point you in the right direction.
I have a Facebook group dedicated to being a judgment-free zone where parents can come and post questions: Respectful Sleep Coaching and Support. No question you have for me is a “dumb” question, so ask away! And, as always, you can call me for a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation.
