Are you wondering whether you should hire a Sleep Consultant? Have you heard some of your parent-friends talk about getting help for their child’s sleep?
Maybe you think to yourself, ‘would that be helpful for me?’
That’s a great question!
Here are the Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Gentle Sleep Consultant:
Building Healthy Sleep Habits that last a lifetime
This may sound a little dramatic, but it’s true. How many people do you know that feel like they have to turn on the tv to fall asleep? Or maybe they struggle to get back to sleep if they wake through the night. You can help your little one learn fall asleep independently. This sets them on the right track to continue healthy sleep habits through childhood and into adulthood. It truly is the gift that keeps giving.
Personalized Coaching and Support
Let’s face it; there are a lot of books out there about sleep coaching your child. If everyone’s family was exactly the same that would be the perfect solution for most people. But we aren’t all the same; every family is different! We all have different backgrounds, lifestyles, needs, and desires. So a one-size-fits-all approach just isn’t realistic. As a Gentle Sleep Coach, I work with your family to come up with a plan to meet your goals in a way that works for you. Then we work together to make it happen.
Weaning Night Feeds or Stopping Co-Sleeping
Many families find that co-sleeping works well for them, especially when baby is little. However, it is not uncommon to reach a point where you need to make changes. If your Family MD agrees that your little one no longer needs to feed at night, a Gentle Sleep Coach can help. Perhaps there’s another baby on the way, or you’re ready to have your bed to yourself. Whatever your reason, when you decide to make changes to your baby or child’s night time sleep, a Gentle Sleep Coach can help you make a plan and support you through the process.
Developing a Plan that Fits the Needs of Your Family
Every family is different; values, beliefs, size, and many other things can vary. Gentle Sleep Coaches take a detailed history to learn about your family and your child. We also take the time to learn about your goals and make sure we’re all on the same page. Using this information we work to develop a plan that works for your family, and meet your goals.
Improving Sleep for Everyone in the Family
One of the best things about sleep coaching is that eventually everyone in the family has the chance to improve their sleep. Think about how much more sleep you would get if your baby or young child only woke once or twice at night. What about if they didn’t need your help to get back to sleep at all over night? Getting enough sleep at night makes it easier for everyone to function better through the day.
