When you have a child that does not sleep well, you are willing to try just about anything to help them get some rest. From mom group advice to Google searches to advice from friends and family, it can be extremely discouraging to have tried a list of tricks and still have an exhausted child on your hands. If you have been thrown into survival mode as your baby and yourself live with minimal sleep, it’s time for specific guidance from a professional to get your child sleeping well.
Being so tired is not good for you or your little one. You’ll be dealing with lower patience and energy levels, which makes it harder to be the best parent you can be. This may feel like a hopeless time in your life, but you are not alone. With the help of one of Nassau County’s top pediatric sleep consultants, you and your family will be sleeping better before you know it.
It Will Get Better!
The thing expectant parents hear a lot is the phrase “Sleep while you can.” The theory is that once the baby comes, you won’t be sleeping. Sleep deprivation is often discussed as if it were a right of passage into true parenthood, but you do not have to fall into this.
Not only have I been where you are, but I have helped hundreds of families that have dealt with the same exhaustion. It feels like things are never going to improve, but things can certainly get better with some guidance.
Like you and many other families, I have experienced countless sleepless nights with my eldest daughter. From the first time I put her in her crib, she had trouble sleeping. Just when we seemed to have solved one issue, another popped up right after. First, we dealt with vomiting, then the fun of toddlers in big kid beds, then the stress of adding a new baby. Many of these nights, I was lucky enough to have the support and help of my husband, but there were many nights when I had to navigate alone while my husband was away for work.
How I Can Help You?
If you miss the days of being able to catch up on your favorite TV shows, read a good book, meet those work deadlines, or even just spend the night curled up in bed, do not worry. I have helped hundreds of parents get their evenings back. Not only will you regain a sense of yourself again, but well-rested babies are also generally happier and healthier than those who are sleep-deprived.
My job is to troubleshoot what your little one is dealing with that is causing them to lose out on sleep. That allows me to give you clear answers as well as a solid plan to get them sleeping well. Getting down to the root cause of the issues allows me to help fix the problem rather than giving melatonin or other medicines to force sleep.
With a solid plan in place, you will be equipped with the tools to help your baby learn independent sleep skills. This will allow them to get themselves to sleep rather than relying on your help.
