Many people believe sleep training simply involves leaving your child to “cry it out”. That is definitely not the case. There are many gentle approaches that can have a hugely positive impact on a child’s sleeping habits. Often simple changes to routine, diet and sleep environment quickly make a difference. Ultimately, it’s about a child getting the sleep they need in order to develop and be happy and healthy.
I don’t believe in one single method, but take a holistic approach that considers the individual needs of the child and parents. Before putting together a personalized plan for you, I consider a number of factors, including:
* Your parenting philosophy
* Family dynamics
* Your child’s temperament
* Medical background
* Developmental stages
* Current settling techniques
All children are different, and it is important we find what suits them as individuals, as well as what aligns with the parent or parents’ individual parenting philosophy. I will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to establish an age-appropriate routine and healthy sleeping habits, which will transform your child’s sleep.
