Ready for a Good Night’s Sleep?
Are you frustrated, exhausted, and feel like you’re at your wit’s end? Or maybe you just want your baby to sleep independently and learn to develop positive feelings toward sleep? Whatever your reason is, you’re here because you know the importance of sleep for your little one and the rest of your family, including yourself. You’ve come to the right place! I care about all the families I work with.
Why I Started Good Little SleeperZzz
I started Good Little SleeperZzz because of my experience with my son, Logan. He was a terrible sleeper! He hardly slept for one hour at a time, and I spent a significant chunk of my son’s first year of life trying to soothe him back to sleep. I hardly slept myself, and everyone in our household was miserable.
I read everything I could get my hands on to fix the problem, but nothing seemed to help. I realized what I needed was one-on-one support from a caring professional. When I couldn’t find anyone who fit the bill, I decided to fill the gap myself. After extensive research and going back to studying, I became a certified sleep coach in 2015, and I started helping local families and families throughout the world.
I can help you and your family get the sleep you need, carefully and respectfully. I pride myself on listening to and supporting your family’s wishes. After all, I am the coach, but you know your baby and family better than I do. By working together, we will find the best sleep solution for your family.
Sleep is Essential for All Children
There are obvious adverse effects associated with a child who can’t sleep – an exhausted household, a cranky baby, and everyone feeling lost because of the lack of predictability. Aside from these, my research also uncovered many other troublesome side effects of poor sleeping routines.
For example, a lower IQ, a higher chance of obesity, and a higher risk of hyperactivity are all associated with a lack of sleep. There are also negative effects on memory, organizational skills, and the ability to regulate emotions.
Put simply, helping your child develop and maintain a consistent sleeping schedule and daily routine is one of the very best things you can do for your child and yourself.
There’s nothing worse than struggling to feel patient, affectionate, and happy toward your child because you’re just too sleepy. Your child’s inability to sleep strains your relationship with them – which is unsustainable and far from ideal.
You may think you can’t solve this problem, but trust me; we can solve it together.
