A Journey Beyond Sleep....
An overwhelming amount of advice and information in a world full of data, leaves us feeling disconnected from our own natural instincts.
What kind of relationship do you wish to have with your child?
With all parenting choices, it is important to consider your relationship before deciding what approach to use. Sleep changes don't have to create a disconnect or feel detached and isolating. Sleep solutions can be the first step towards emotional healing, understanding early emotion, building a stronger connections, and creating deeper relationships. Understanding early childhood development, attachment, the CNS, patterns, regulation and dysregulation is the first step towards supporting your baby through change. Knowing what's normal and what isn't normal with each developmental stage and setting realistic expectations is imperative to having a well-balanced child.
Different because we look at nighttime parenting rather than simply removing nighttime parenting to promote sleep. We address the emotional needs of the child and consider attachment patterns, early experiences and stress reactivity before making recomendations.

Many families question the necessity of paying for a sleep coach and wonder if they can tackle sleep on their own.
Sleep can be managed without extra help, but for many families this opens the door for big emotions where a lot of confusion can occur. Understanding why sleep is necessary, what normal sleep looks like at each age and what is a reasonable expectation for your child will help you navigate the process. There may be hidden sleep barriers that are contributing to your baby or child's sleep challenges, finding the root of the problem is necessary for long term success. Sleep disturbances can re-occur, over and over again and seem confusing. Sleep is just the tip of the iceberg and looking beyond sleep is where you discover the well-balanced child.
