Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

Do you support the cry it out method?

Crying is your child’s way of protesting change and you can expect that making changes to their sleep habits will result in some protest. I will never ask you to leave your child to cry alone nor will I ask you to ignore their cries.

 

 

Why is my child so wound up and resistant to bedtime?

The more tired you child becomes the more wired they will be and the more wired they are the harder time they will have falling asleep.  An early bedtime will help ensure that your child will not be overtired and resistant to bedtime. Children and babies thrive on routines.  They are better behaved and respond better when there is a pattern to follow. A routine helps give your child a sense of security and control.

 

 

When should I start establishing good sleep habits for my baby?

Newborn to 3 months is  good time to start establishing good sleep habits and routines. Developmentally you cannot expect a newborn to sleep through the night due to the need to feed frequently. However, you can start giving them the tools they need to develop healthy sleep habits.
