Thank you for clicking on my profile. Good news! You have taken the first step to solving your baby/child's sleep issues.
I . LOVE. SLEEP!
I love my children! They are my world.
But WHY does my baby NOT LOVE sleep?
The two did not seem to fit together. I, like you, cannot be the best parent to my beautiful children without a good night's sleep.
Loving my children seemed to mean giving up on sleep. That is, until I contacted Karen at Baby Sleep the Night.
I very much come from the attachment parenting viewpoint. I bed shared with all three of my daughters. I breastfed them. With my first I carried her everywhere in a sling. We just did not use a pushchair.
However, I suddenly lost the joy of breastfeeding. My second daughter would only ever go to sleep whilst being fed. And would then wake multiple times a night, requiring me to feed her back to sleep.
The PRESSURE. THE SHEER FRUSTRATION. It was affecting my bond with my baby. While I wanted to maintain my attachment parenting style I could not do this to the detriment of that bond and also be a parent to my first daughter, while my husband worked away at sea.
Getting help saved my sanity and repaired the bond with my daughter. She slept through on the second night. She was going to sleep independently and happily. I finally caught up on my sleep!
When my third daughter came along, I still bed shared with her, I still used a sling. I had however, learnt enough from Karen to avoid the mistakes I had previously made and she is a fabulous, independent sleeper!
My Psychology background gave me an understanding on the importance of sleep for babies' developing brains as well as the physical and mental health of adults, ie parents. So when a one off email to Karen lead to the opportunity to train as a sleep consultant I jumped at the chance. I could not wait to be able to help other parents, like you, leave those sleep deprived days and night behind.
My sleep plans are tailored to each individual family's needs, including their parenting style. I provide a bespoke package and will be there to support you every step of the way.
