Frequently Asked Questions
My certification through the Family Sleep Institute allows me to help with sleep training starting at 4 months old. I do, however, have an Expecting Parents/Newborn Healthy Sleep Habits option for babies younger than 4 months. But if you have further questions, please give me a call.
Because I am the expert:) If you are exhausted and don’t know what to do, I can help you. If you are tired of searching the internet and finding conflicting information, I can help you. I have a FREE 15-minute sleep q&a call if you want more information on how I can help your family get the sleep they deserve.
You can expect that we will work together and choose the best plan to fit your family philosophy. I will also create a personalized step-by-step sleep plan that is easy to follow. We will communicate through a google sleep log (text and email also) and I will provide feedback throughout the day to keep you on track. Lastly, I hope to coach you through this process and really be there for you to get you to your goals.
I would never recommend for you to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. This is why we have an initial sleep consultation, so that we can get to know each other and decide what plan best suits your family. I cannot guarantee no crying, but I can guarantee that I will coach you through the plan we chose and help you along the way. When we change up a routine/schedule or create a new one, sometimes there is some crying. We can be as gradual as you want with the process but just know that usually takes a bit longer.
This is a difficult question to answer because every child is different. It also depends on what sleep method we choose because some take longer than others. We will discuss this in our sleep consultation before starting any sleep plan.
I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) as well as a Certified Child Sleep Consultant…so weaning is never on my mind lol. I will, however, respect your wishes and help you with whatever you choose.
Absolutely! and it is no additional charges.
I work with children ages 4 months – 6/7 years old, as well as, my Expecting Parents/Newborn Healthy Sleep Habits package for infants under 4 months old.
