What age of babies do you work with?
I work with babies 2 weeks and older. With younger babies (up to 8 weeks), we are not technically sleep training. We are laying the foundation so they naturally learn to fall and stay asleep on their own. They will still need to wake during the night for feedings. Our goal will be to feed them and get them back down quickly. Once they’ve gained enough weight and we have the doctor’s OK, we can begin to eliminate night feeds and get them sleeping longer stretches.
When is the best time for me to have you over for a slumber party?
Having a baby is such an exciting time and everyone wants to visit. Have me over after all the family and visitors have left. We want things to be as normal as possible when begin working together. Of course, visitors can still pop in to see your baby. But I will ask you to have them visit during her wake times.
So where will you sleep during our slumber party?
I ask that families provide me with a separate room near the baby with a queen size bed and private bath. It’s also fantastic to have a small fridge and bottle warmer in my room so I can feed your little one during the night.
If space or the layout of your home is an issue, I can also share a room with the baby. However during my breaks, I will need a separate quiet room to rest and recharge.
Will one week be long enough for you get my baby sleeping all night?
That depends on a couple of things. The age of your child, the sleep problems we’re trying to correct and if there are any medical issues. I suggest starting with one week and if during our call I think we’ll need more time, I’ll let you know.
I really can’t bear to hear my baby cry. Do you I have any options beside cry it out?
Absolutely! I have several low cry solutions in my diaper bag. While I can’t guarantee that your baby won’t cry, I DO teach you how to minimize the crying so everyone can get back to sleep. One important thing to note is it can sometimes take a bit longer to see results when using a low cry option.
