frequently asked questions

 

When can you start sleep training?

I WORK WITH BABIES STARTING AT 5 MONTHS OF AGE ALL THE WAY TO 4 YEARS OLD. YOU CAN START IMPLEMENTING GOOD HABITS BEFORE THIS AGE BUT A BABY JUST ISN’T READY FOR SLEEP TRAINING BEFORE 5 MONTHS OF AGE. 

Do you work with multiples?

ABSOLUTELY! OFTEN TIMES PARENTS WILL WANT TO TREAT SLEEP ISSUES FOR MULTIPLES THE SAME WAY. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT BABIES ARE VERY UNIQUE AND SOMETIMES ONE BABY NEEDS A DIFFERENT APPROACH THAN THEIR SIBLING. 

 

How long will sleep training take?

SLEEP TRAINING TAKES CONSISTENCY AND DETERMINATION. PARENTS OFTEN START SEEING SIGNIFICANT RESULTS AFTER THE FIRST 2-3 NIGHTS. EACH NIGHT SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THE LAST MOVING FORWARD. YOU CAN EXPECT SLEEP TRAINING TO LAST 10-14 NIGHTS. NAP TRAINING CAN LAST 2 FULL WEEKS. 

My baby is teething or sick. Should  I wait to sleep train?

BABY WILL BE TEETHING ON AND OFF FOR YEARS. IF YOU HAD TO WAIT FOR THEM TO GET ALL THEIR TEETH, YOU’D ALL BE EXHAUSTED. IT MAY EFFECT SLEEP FOR A FEW DAYS AT A TIME BUT I RECOMMEND CONTINUING SLEEP TRAINING. 

COLDS OR SICKNESS IS DIFFERENT. THIS IS A TIME WHEN BABY NEEDS EXTRA LOVE AND COMFORTING. SLEEP TRAINING SHOULD BE PUT ON HOLD UNTIL BABY IS FULLY RECOVERED AND FEELING WELL.
