How do I get my child to go to sleep? Why won't my child sleep through the night? Why is my child refusing to nap?

If you've asked yourself any of these questions, you're in the right place. 

I take a unique, holistic approach to pediatric sleep. While many children can in fact benefit from a sleep training plan, I believe that there is so much more to meeting your child's sleep needs than sleep training alone. Together, we will look at every aspect of your child's well-being to ensure that these elements are working together harmoniously for optimum sleep, behavior, and development.

What is 'Sleep Training' and why do we do it?

‘Sleep training’ simply refers to the act of teaching your child to sleep independently. However, this does NOT necessarily mean allowing your children to cry themselves to sleep while you wait helplessly outside the door!

Here’s the thing: children, and even adults, wake often throughout the night as they transition between sleep cycles. As adults, we are able to easily put ourselves back to sleep and don’t often notice the wakings. However, a baby who is dependent on their parent or sleep props to fall asleep will wake fully between their sleep cycles and need assistance falling back to sleep. It is important to help your baby learn how to fall asleep independently, not only because you as a parent are exhausted from constantly helping your baby back to sleep, but because children rely on restful sleep for their growth and development.

You know the feeling after a long night of assisting your baby back to sleep every two hours, right? You're tired and irritable and probably surviving on coffee. Now imagine how your baby is feeling after waking every two hours, unable to go back to sleep without a snack or snuggles, and not even able to have coffee the next day. Independent sleep is the greatest gift that you can give to your child!

Customized Sleep Plans and 1:1 Support

My goal at Happy Little Dreamer Sleep Solutions is to help you set a solid sleep foundation for your child in a way in which you as the caregiver feel completely comfortable. There are many different methods that can be used for sleep training. With our customized sleep plans and 1:1 support, we will work together to choose the method that will work best for your family and give you and your child the restful sleep that we all need! Your individualized plan will focus not only on your child's nighttime sleep, but on his/her entire day including naps, meals, activities, and more!
