Sleep Consultant in Northern Virginia
The Sleep Sense Philosophy
Northern Virginia Sleep Consultant
My approach to improving your child’s sleep is pretty simple:
1. I’ll give you honest information about WHY sleep is so important for your child’s well-being. This will give you all the motivation you need to make changes to your child’s sleep habits.
2. I’ll lay out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan based on your family’s needs and what you decide is the right approach for your child. All children are different, and nobody knows your child better than you do. With your insight and knowledge, we will be able to customize his or her sleep plan.
3. Show you how to measure success. No, you shouldn’t expect your child to sleep 12 uninterrupted hours on the first night — although it does happen! I’ll tell you what you should expect along the way.
A little note about the “crying” question: Since people always ask me about whether my program involves “crying it out,” I think it’s something that deserves to be addressed here.
Crying is your child’s way of protesting change, and you can expect that making changes to their sleep habits will result in some protest. That’s why I’m always sure to tell parents that my program, as a Northern VA child sleep consultant, will most likely involve at least some amount of protest on the child’s part.
