More Sleep Without Sleep Training.
We do not use sleep training methods.
Yup. You read that right. We know it sounds odd but we promise it is not.
We believe that sleep is affected by physical, emotional, social, developmental and environmental factors. We prioritize emotional wellbeing and the attachment relationship. We work with those factors to help you establish healthy sleep habits. Our plans use holistic thinking and sleep science to provide personalized balanced solutions for sleep challenges- which makes our plans both successful and sustainable. Whatever your goal is - we can help-without the use of training methods.
Ok, so now you may be asking why we don't use sleep training methods…
We gave this a lot of thought. When an adult comes to us for help with their sleep challenges we do not ask them to lay in bed while someone checks on them every 10 minutes to provide reassurance. We then started thinking " why should we ask that of children?"
So, we changed our approach a while back and it worked wonderfully. Parents felt more comfortable and children responded well so we stopped using sleep training methods completely. We then decide to make the FULL commitment and no longer offer these methods at all. Why? Because we don't have to and because progress can be made with you by your child's side. We LOVE that so much that it only made sense for us to continue working this way.
Who do we help?
Newborns to teenagers.
How do we work with newborns when the APA states no sleep training until 6 months of age? Easy - we don't use sleep training/controlled crying methods. This means you will not be asked to leave your child to cry alone at any age.
We help you establish healthy sleep foundations that has NOTHING to do with sleep "training". With the right changes, the right love and cuddles, the right timing and the right expectations of sleep for this age small progress can be made. These changes will help you continue to encourage your child's sleep as their brain matures and develops.
We also work with school age children who are having challenges sleeping on their own or who have high anxiety.
We can help by investigating the root of the sleep challenge and provide small sustainable changes to help meet the set goal.
Sound too good to be true? We promise that it is good and it is true.
