SLEEP SUPPORT PACKAGES

When I was a new mom, I had no idea you had to teach your baby to sleep. I thought that when they were tired, they would simply sleep.  My son had what you would call FOMO (fear of missing out) and still does. I read every book out there on sleep training and it was so hard as a new mom, because no matter what I tried, I just couldn’t get my son to sleep. After many meltdowns (by me), I realized that my son is not a robot and doesn’t fit the baby they are describing in the books.

MAMABEAR TRUTH:

Nobody sleeping is NOT the way it has to be! It’s about working with you and your baby to see what is the right fit to get you the sleep help you need...

Each baby is unique and I take into account their personality, your routine and lifestyle as a family.

Imagine what it would feel like to have a good night sleep: You wouldn’t feel groggy in the morning, you would have more energy, patience, you would be able to function better the next day. Imagine being able to watch a show on Netflix, have an interrupted bath or better yet time with your partner?

This is what it will feel like once we’ve worked together to help your baby, toddler, preschooler, tween sleep. You will get your life back!!!! 

How do you teach my child how to sleep?

You will be supported the entire time by me, a Registered Nurse. We work together through the entire process so that you feel support Mama, and in turn you can support your baby’s sleep.

This is a process where we are teaching your baby skills they need in order to sleep. They will protest by crying, but by no means is this a cry it out method. Anytime you change your baby’s routine, they will cry. It is the only way they can communicate with us, but I will be supporting you and you will be supporting them, so that neither of you is alone.

“Thank you for giving us our lives back. Baby E is sleeping through the night, with no wake ups and has even adjusted well to having a new sibling. Thank you so much for supporting me the entire time. I wouldn’t have been able to do it on my own. Your patience, compassion and knowledge were a lifesaver. I strongly recommend that every mama contacts Agnes to help their baby sleep.”

“I couldn’t have done it without Agnes’ support. I tried many different methods on my own, but nothing worked. I’m so glad I reached out to for her help. She supported me every step of the way, communicated with me every day. I knew that I wasn’t alone in this and that she had my back. She taught me that my baby has sleep cues, what to look for and how to set up her sleep environment in order to help her sleep better. She also gave me tons of extra information to help with any issues that come down the road like time change, travelling, when to move her into a bed.”

“I honestly like my child better after having sleep trained her. I even find that I’m missing her in the morning and I can’t wait for her to wake up. I didn’t think that it would be possible to have an uninterrupted night of sleep, but thanks to Agnes and all her support, our child is falling asleep on her own, in her own bed and stays in bed all night. Thank you for giving me back my sanity! I no longer have to worry about burning down the house, because I’m so tired, I leave a pot on the stove.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When babies are tired, don’t they just fall asleep?

Not necessarily. Just like any skill that babies and children have to learn, sleep is no different. They have to learn to fall asleep and stay asleep and for some, that can be quite challenging.

I am hesitant to sleep train my baby as I was told it is bad for them to cry. Isn't that basically what sleep training is, letting them cry it out?

No one likes to hear their baby cry however, crying is not bad for them. It’s the only way that they can communicate with us. Remember you aren’t leaving your baby to cry for hours on end, without any comfort. The babies that are affected by crying are those that are chronically physically abused. Sleep training is not about closing the door and leaving your baby/child to cry. They will cry because you are changing their routine and they aren’t happy about it, but you are not leaving them alone with the door closed to cry it out.

I’ve been told that my 6 month old should be sleeping through the night, but he isn’t. Is that normal?

Sleeping through the night looks different for babies of different ages. For instance for a 3 month old, it would look like waking after midnight for a feed and then every 3 hours until morning. Whereas a 6 month old is old enough and weighs enough that he/she could sleep through the night, but may wake up once for a feed. The key is that your baby should be waking to feed not to help put him/herself back to sleep. You want the feeds to be effective not to be used as a sleep prop.

What are sleep props and how can they impact my baby’s sleep?

Sleep props are anything that your baby needs in order to fall asleep and stay asleep. It could be anything from breastfeeding, rocking, falling asleep in your arms, sleeping in your bed, and even a soother. What happens is that your baby needs these in order to fall asleep and then once they fall asleep, they need these to help put them back to sleep. Without these props your baby can’t fall asleep and has a hard time putting themselves back to sleep.

At what age could you start sleep training your baby?

After 3-4 months is a good time to start. They are old enough that breastfeeding is established and young enough to work with them on their habits, but it’s never too late to sleep train your child. They could be school age and need help to sleep. Mama, the key is you have to be ready.

I’ve heard it’s normal for children up to the age of 3-4 to not sleep through the night, so why is it a problem?

The sleep habits that children learn as babies are carried with them into adulthood. How many of your friends state that they don’t sleep well? This is attributed to the habits they learned when they were little. A recent study revealed that “20-40% of young children have sleep problems, which negatively affects their well-being, decision-making, and attention span in school”. This is why it is important for your baby/child to learn healthy sleep habits when they are young as it can affect them the rest of their lives.

My baby sleeps well at night but naps horribly during the day, what can I do?

Naps can be hard for babies to grasp but they do. The trick is to learn what are their sleep cues (eye rubbing, not following an activity, red eyes, fussiness) and then also look at their awake window. There is an ideal awake window for babies of all ages. It just depends on their age. But knowing their sleep cues and the appropriate awake time for your child, will help you combat naps.
