Skeptical About Consulting

Your baby may be experiencing frequent nighttime wakings, short naps, early morning wake-ups, or bedtime resistance, leaving you feeling drained and irritable. 

 

You’ve read the books, scoured the internet, and received more conflicting advice from your mom, sister-in-law, and best friend than you can process. 

 

None of it works for your baby – or you. You are searching for a gentle approach. One that respects your child’s emotional needs and maintains the close bond you’ve worked hard to build. All while also getting your baby to sleep more than a few minutes at a time. 

 

You are sleep-deprived, overwhelmed, and on the verge of a mini-emotional breakdown all day, every day. And if you hear about ‘extinction’, cry-it-out, or Ferberizing one more time, the cops might have to be involved. 

 

Feeling stuck, worried, and frustrated? Don’t worry mama, I’ve been there, and I'm on a mission to help you.

Sleeping Baby

I’ve Walked in Your Shoes 

I’m not just a sleep consultant. I’m a parent who’s experienced the struggles of sleepless nights and constant wake-ups. I know firsthand the questions you're asking, the advice you're hearing, and the doubts you're feeling. 

As a parent, I remember asking myself, "How do I get my baby/toddler to sleep through the night?" The question felt as complex as asking, "How do I raise my children to become respectful, caring teenagers?" I desperately wanted to find a way to get more sleep for our entire family so that I could enjoy those precious moments with my kids, instead of just “getting through it”.

In my work as a doula, I have seen many families struggle with sleep deprivation well beyond the initial weeks of parenting. I wanted to be able to offer them comfort and support so that both parents and children could finally get the rest they needed. With a firm belief in the efficacy of attachment principles, I embarked on a search, eventually discovering a sleep consultant training program that aligned perfectly with these values.

My passion is not just about helping your child sleep through the night; it's about helping you feel confident and equipped in this journey. I know how crucial it is to understand each child’s unique needs and provide advice that aligns with your parenting philosophy. This is a journey that doesn’t need to involve tears or distress. Instead, it can be a process filled with comfort, care, and compassion. 

Having initially doubted the efficacy of sleep consulting, I can now confidently assert the value of this service. It's about more than just surviving - it's about enhancing the quality of life for your family. The satisfaction I've seen from parents who have embraced this journey is a testament to its worth. I wish I had known this earlier, and now, it's my mission to ensure you do.

Unravel the Complexity of

Your Child’s Sleep

Navigating the sea of advice and misconceptions about children's sleep can be overwhelming. From beliefs like "babies just wake up a lot" to attributing everything to teething or sleep regressions, there’s no end to confusing and conflicting information. At A Positive Experience, we understand these concerns and offer a holistic approach that recognizes your child's individual sleep needs.

Rather than relying on quick fixes or one-size-fits-all solutions, we engage in a meaningful dialogue with you. Our goal is to understand and respect your parenting philosophy while considering your child's emotional needs.

Our comprehensive sleep consultation package delves deep, scrutinizing the multitude of factors influencing your baby or toddler’s sleep. We assess everything from the sleep environment, nutrition, potential ailments, and illness to subtleties like circadian rhythms and routines. Emphasis is also placed on understanding sleep cues and appropriately addressing any sleep aid dependence. 

With this comprehensive approach, we devise a customized strategy that aligns with your parenting style and caters to your child’s unique needs. Our goal is more than just identifying problems; we aim to implement specific, meaningful changes that lead to improved sleep for your child and, ultimately, your entire family.
