Make sleep happen! All sleep coaching packages on sale!
I’ll coach you as to what you can typically expect to experience over the 3 weeks we work together as your child develops healthy and lasting sleep.
To have success sleep training, you need a plan.
Inconsistencies every night aren't fair to your child.
When we work together, we’ll create a plan of action so you can respond to your child consistently.
After the first week your toddler will be gaining confidence.
You should see some improvement and not as much crying.
After sleep training, crying should not be the norm.
It’s hard to hear your child cry and no parent likes listening to it. This is a big change for your toddler. They have had it done their way for months or years, and they probably aren't going to like it at first. The crying is their way of protesting this change and trying to figure out what to do. Just remember that this is not the new norm. It's only temporary until they learn the skills they need to fall asleep independently. We’ll work through sleep training methods where crying will probably happen, but with a specific plan on how to respond.

You will gain confidence and knowledge in all areas of your toddler's sleep.
I'll show you how to teach your child to sleep independently in their crib for 11-12 hrs at night and to take a consistent nap every day. You should start to see results within the first week as long as you are committed to applying the plan and strategies completely-100%.
What if my child is in a "big kid bed" already?
If your toddler is under 3, they need to be in a crib because developmentally, they cannot understand the rules and boundaries that come with an open bed. So, even if they have already been introduced to a big kid bed, it's back to the crib till they are at least 3 years old. This will be the easiest way for you to help them get a full night's sleep. If you have more questions about this, book a discovery call and I’d be happy to hear your concerns.
What happens when I book a Discovery Call?
When you schedule a free Discovery Call, you’ll be taken to my calendar where you can choose a time that works for you. At that time, I’ll give you a call that's usually between 15-20 min. We’ll talk about the issues you’re having with your child's sleep, I’ll answer any questions you may have, and we’ll see if my sleep coaching is right for you and your child.
Why Does this cost more than the baby coaching program?
The toddler sleep coaching program is more because toddlers are more set in their ways than babies. It will take longer to get a toddler used to the new changes than it does a baby. It typically takes a good 3 weeks to complete sleep training with a toddler.
I have twins/multiples. Will this still work?
I can work with you to develop a confident routine so that life with your multiples is less complicated. Sleep training twins isn’t that different than training singletons, and I’ll guide you through what we need to do.
If my child is 16 months, should I do the baby or toddler coaching?
I recommend doing the baby coaching, but when we have our Discovery Call, we can talk more about your unique situation and what is best for your child.
Will my child cry?
Change is not welcome to toddlers and your toddler is probably just fine with the way things are right now. We’re teaching them an entire new skill…sleep! The crying is their way of protesting this change. Just remember that this is not the new norm. It's only temporary until they learn the skills they need to fall asleep independently. We’ll work through sleep training methods where crying will probably happen, but with a specific plan on how to respond.

My sleep teaching journey began when my first son was 4 months old and not sleeping through the night. He slept beside our bed in a little cot. It was an all night yoyo sleeping with my hand danging over the bed to replace the binky. I’d hear him start to wake up and then I was afraid he would wake my husband, so I’d give him the binky hoping to tide him over a little longer before I'd get up to feed him.
Maybe you've felt this way too? We were tired and didn’t know how to get him sleeping better. So, I did what I always do when I want to learn something and that is research…which led me to sleep training, which led me to working with a consultant online. Working with her gave me the knowledge and the confidence I needed to make the little changes we needed to get him sleeping better.
What I soon realized is that he was ready and I was the one hanging on to the way it used to work when he was a newborn. The trouble we were having at night was his way of saying “I’m not a newborn anymore. I’m ready for bigger things.”
He learned the new skills he needed to sleep in his own bed in his own room so much quicker than I thought he would.
No matter what your occupation or walk in life is, sleep is the foundation to our health and well being. We all understand how “off” we feel when we don’t get the sleep we need. Sleep deprivation affects our attitude, our productivity, our relationships, our parenting and so much more. As parents, we shouldn't settle for being tired all the time! Your child is capable and ready to sleep when you are ready to teach them.
If you’re like me, then having a baby changed everything! You realized there is so much you don’t know and you’re growing as much as a new parent as your child is changing and developing. We are constantly bombarded with other’s ideas of how we should or shouldn’t parent, but it’s important to look at your situation and ask “is this working for me and my child in this season?” and “Is what I am doing a sustainable solution?”
For me, sleeping with my arm going numb hanging over the side of the bed to replace a binky all through the night was not. What I've come to realize with each of my boys is what worked as a newborn phased out with as they grew and developed. The time came with each of them to slowly let go a little and give them the time and space they needed to learn their own sleep skills.
If you're ready to help your baby learn to sleep long and well, you need someone to give you an effective plan and guide you through every step of the way. On those hard and emotional nights, it’s easy to second guess yourself or feel guilty for making changes, but working with a coach gives you all the support and guidance you crave so that you don’t give up on yourself or your child!
You can read endless books and blogs on sleep or search for tips and tricks online and never really make any progress, or you can choose to make a lasting difference for your family by working with me to lead you on the journey to better sleep.
As a certified pediatric sleep consultant and mama to 3 wild little boys, I get it. I've spent time researching, learning the strategies and cutting through the noise online so you don't have to.
