Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. “Is this just about sleep training?”
A. No. Developing healthy sleep habits is based on patterning sleep routines with a child’s natural biological rhythms, reducing the level of sleep deprivation that a baby is experiencing and then weaning any dependency of sleep associations that is stopping a baby from having healthy and restorative sleep. There are important steps that MUST be in place to have a healthy sleeper.
Q. “I know my baby needs sleep to be healthy, but I’m not comfortable with doing a Cry-It-Out method. Will I be forced to use that?”
A. Definitely not. There are many options to choose from for the actual sleep training method. I go over all the pros and cons of each method, along with timelines and what suits personality types. I provide all the information; but I always ask parents to choose a method that feels right for them and their family.
Q. “I believe that it is biological normal for a baby to wake at night.
A. Great news! I also believe it’s biologically normal for a baby (or anyone else for that matter) to wake at night. There is a difference between brief night wakings that happen in between sleep cycle transitions, versus extended wakings that interrupt sleep cycles, cutting off the deep and restorative sleep that is needed for your child’s cognitive, physical and emotional development. We work at developing healthy sleep patterns and eliminating ones that are destructive.
Q. Are you going to tell me that I have to stop feeding my child at night?”
A. I never tell parents to stop feeding their babies at night. In fact, I will often encourage more night feeds if I see there are signs that it is needed. Healthy sleep habits and night feeding are not mutually exclusive. I nursed both of my children at night and they were independent sleepers.
“Q. I’m ready and excited to get started. I can’t wait to start having a healthier family. How do I start?”
A. I’m excited too! To get started, see below…
