0-6 weeks - Babies are too young for sleep coaching at this age! Just enjoy the snuggles and this very special bonding time with your little one. This newborn time passes by so very quickly! What can be helpful during this period is learn how babies sleep and what their patterns look like. We can help set a good foundation during this time period to get your little one off to a good start.
6-12 weeks - After your baby is a LEAST 6-12 weeks, this is a fantastic time to start establishing some routines! Spend a good bit of time getting them ready for bedtime. This can include bathing, feeding, snuggling, reading books and lullabies. The idea here is for your baby to go to her bed drowsy but awake. This special time encourages your baby to anticipate and know that bedtime is coming. It also reassures and comforts them. Make sure you stick to the same routine every evening around the same time.
4-6 months -A baby at this age can be ready for sleep coaching. This is about the age that your baby will start to sort out their circadium rythyms. You may notice their daytime awake times are longer, their first stretch of nighttime sleep after a good feed is getting longer. Some other signs that your baby is self soothing are sucking on fingers and hands, trying to burrow their face into you as a way to turn off stimulation and possible rolling onto their side. All these are good signs that your little one may be ready for sleep coaching.
I believe that every child and parent is different, so it's important for a very thorough intake process allowing me to tailor a plan that you can not only stick with but feel good about the goals.
The CIO (Cry it out) method is one type of sleep training that usually involves putting your child in their room and not coming back until morning. However, my approach is quite different. I like to use a more gentle approach that may take a bit longer but without the need for you and your baby to feel completely stressed out and abandoned. Although I don't avocate the CIO method, sleep training often does involve some tears at first. We would expect some kind of protest, but with reassurance and consistency, your baby will see they haven't been abandoned, they're learning a new skill, which is how to fall asleep on their own.
I wish there was a definitive answer for this question! It really depends on a number of things. It depends on what method is chosen, your child's temperment, what methods you've tried in the past and how determined you are! It's not uncommon to see some improvement in the first few nights, but you should be prepared to be consistent with your plan for at least 14 days.
The answer to that is YES! Thanks to technology and the use of Skype, facetime and google hangouts, this allows me to work with anyone globally. We will be formulating a very detailed plan and be in close contact via email and text messaging.
I work with newborns through age 6 years of age. I also work with pregnant moms, preparing them for good habits and sleep awarness with their babies. Sleep coaching begins at around 4 months of age. Prior to this, a baby is too young for sleep training. What we can do is work on practices that will help your newborn develop good sleeping skills.
More than likely the reason you are here is because what you've been doing hasn't been working and you are tired and exhausted from trying various sleep plans that are not working. There is no one size fits all when it comes to babies and children. I'll be tailoring a plan that you'll follow in detail. Together, we'll work on a solution with commitment and encouragement.
