The Baby Sleep Coach
Since having my own children, I’ve always been interested to explore the possibilities to work with children, or parents with young children.
Being a certified child sleep consultant wasn’t part of the plan at all. This career that I started in 2012 was purely accidental. I learned the hard way of not making sleep as one of the top priorities for my children.
So I don’t want this to happen to other parents. I wanna teach them the tools and provide the solution that they can use to go from struggle to ease!
I wanna help as many parents as possible to feel that being deeply connected to their child is one of the key ingredients to good sleep.
I also want parents who have completed the program with me feeling confident, know more about their baby and themselves during the process and able to fully trust their own judgement and instinct to handle any parenting challenges beyond sleep.
My Unique Approach To Sleep
Well much of what we do during the day has a profound effect on how well we sleep at night. This is the same for our babies and children.
The approach that I use involves deep connection, secure attachment, empathy, compassion, support and reassurance for both mom and child.
I use a holistic approach that involves mum and baby/child relationship, family lifestyle, regularity of schedule and routine, nutrition, as well as addressing underlying issues and emotions that might be impacting sleep.
I know, first hand, what it’s like to go through the stress and exhaustion from sleep deprivation. I was up every 1.5-2 hours in the night to breastfeed by daughter up to 1.5 years. The broken sleeps every night was very frustrating and it had serious effect on my health.
With my deeper understanding from my various training from Parenting by Connection and Aware Parenting philosophies, I understand much better what each of my individual daughter requires emotionally and I have become more aware about meeting their needs accurately (though it can still get super challenging at times!)
This deep understanding has also helped me help many, many parents not only with their baby’s sleep, but in other parenting challenges as well.
So I want to help parents for many reasons:
….to offer them an alternative solution (besides cry it out or wait it out)
….to enjoy sharing my gifts with other parents
….to offer mums the tools to start their own unique journey with their baby’s sleep
….to support mums emotionally and to hear them out that they too have a need for sleep
….to help their baby sleep soundly without having to sacrifice the secure attachment they need.
I want all mums to feel deep appreciation for all they do and for them to receive empathy for the challenges that they face as a mother.
