I believe using a unique approach that fits each family’s goals, needs and values. With the use of reassurance and consistency, your baby will learn to sleep peacefully, comforted by awareness that you are near. Just as your baby begins to understand how certain toys work or what mealtime looks like, parents and babies work together to understand how sleep works and to form healthy habits that last. As you each learn new roles and new consistent practices around sleep, you become better and better at it. These are sleep skills, and just like every other skill we learn in our lifetimes, it takes practice and patience to be a pro.
The SlumberBaby philosophy is three-fold: Customization, Collaboration, Consistency:
I believe that there is not one solution that fits every baby. I will get to know your baby’s unique challenges when it comes to achieving solid sleep-skills. I take my time in learning what frustrations you have faced as parents and develop a customized plan for us to work together.
Not only do I work with parents and babies, but beyond that I am happy to communicate with child-care providers, siblings, and grandparents. Approaching consistent sleep in a group-effort gets everyone on the same page and increases our chances for success as soon as possible.
Once our plan is in place, it is vital to our success that everyone is consistent in applying it. At the root of my philosophy, consistency allows for your baby to understand that there are times to play and times to sleep; we will use predictability to our advantage as your baby learns sleep-cues from you; baby and parents will develop a new and effective way of communicating that results in much less frustration for everyone.
