Just like with any diet, exercise, or any other healthy habit you’re trying to form– What can make it or break it comes down to one thing.
Once you find the right sleep training method ( or methods) pairing it with consistency is the wonder-working formula.
This is so CRITICAL for parents to understand. Your effort will be out the window if you do not STAY CONSISTENT. Inconsistency breeds confusion for your baby. This is something a lot of parents struggle with, and I get it! It’s hard to be consistent if you’re unsure that what you’re doing is even the RIGHT thing TO do! This is where having a sleep coach by your side makes all the difference in the world. No more second-guessing and trying one thing after another hoping something will stick.
Listen, I understand, as a parent, sleep training can feel like a lot of pressure. It feels scary and it can lead to stress. But I will tell you for certain, there is nothing more stressful for a family than a baby or a toddler who doesn’t sleep. Teaching your child good sleep habits will be the best decision you’ve ever made for the health and wellbeing of your family.
If your baby is older than 3 months then there may be some protesting initially. However, this typically subsides very quickly if you are consistent in your responses. This is where having me by your side is invaluable as I’m here to hold your hand and ensure you are successful. While listening to your baby protest, even for just a few minutes can be difficult, don’t let that hold you back from doing what is best for your baby! No parent likes hearing their child upset and sometimes it can feel impossible to remain consistent in those situations. This is why I include ample follow-up support with all my packages so you can stay the course and come out on the other side with a baby that has learned the valuable skill of sleep!
Your entire parenting journey is going to involve being consistent. This is how your children learn rules and boundaries. It’s how children learn everything. This is one of the reasons it’s imperative to have someone in your corner that can help you stay focused on the wins and keep progress going. I will help you stay on course, offer encouragement to keep you emotionally strong, and stay connected with you during the entire process. You will truly be amazed at how soon your baby will be over the hump (3 days is the norm). Much quicker than most parents expect!
Giving your baby the space they need to learn a new skill is super important. One of the biggest mistakes parents make is intervening too quickly because they believe in their hearts that their baby simply isn’t capable of putting themselves to sleep.
Just like riding a bike, learning to drive, or learning any new skill, you have to give your baby time and space to practice. Consistency and a steadfast routine will help reinforce their ability to learn.
Soon, you’ll be seeing progress during naps, longer stretches of sleep at night, and MUCH less protesting. Plus, as your sleep coach, I’m here to help you navigate those times of uncertainty and moments you’re ready to give up. But here’s a secret, it’s almost ALWAYS easier than parents expect it to be.
But it’s hard to stay consistent when you’re doing it alone. That’s why I’m here to be your guide.
