New Year, New Sleep Goals

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

Most of us start the new year with new goals and new resolutions. We want to start fresh with our health, both physical and mental, get organized, travel more, learn a new skill or even set financial goals.

We talk about being more present for our children, for improving their health so maybe they won't catch every virus that is passed around. We want to start a better routine so our days seem less hectic. We want to get more sleep, both for our children and for ourselves.

Sleep in its foundation has a multitude of benefits. When we are better rested, we have better days. We have more energy, we have more patience. Our kids have less meltdowns, our kids eat better, our kids play better. When everyone is rested, you can be the best version of yourself for your child, spouse, partner, family and friends.

Investing in our children is often easier than investing in ourselves. What if instead of investing on one or the other, you hire a sleep consultant and then you are investing in EVERYONE in the house. You are making a beneficial decision for you AND your child. Click here to schedule a chat with me about your challenges, your fears and your goals and I will explain how my program will benefit your household.

In the first few years of parenthood, there is a lot of information thrown at us. Only we know what is best for our children and our family. We need to make decisions for our family based on the knowledge that we receive. Sleep training is one decision that is made to benefit your whole family.

What are some of the benefits of sleep training?

  1. A well rested house. When your house is well rested, your house will have more energy the next day. When we have more energy, we can accomplish more, we can be more present for our children.

  2. Smooth routines. No more tears at nap time or bedtime. No prolonged bedtime routines. No more feeding or rocking to sleep. We thrive on routine. Our children thrive on routine. When there are strong routines in place, when our children know what is expected each day and night, there are less tantrums about bedtime.

  3. Less stress over adequate sleep. It is stressful constantly worrying about whether your child takes a good nap or when they should go down for their next nap. It's stressful when your child wakes early and you don't know how to fix it. With my program, not only do we spend 3 weeks getting your child to the goals that we set together, you get one year of additional support if schedule shifts, regressions or any other questions arise.

  4. More time for YOU. What if you could enjoy your evenings again? Spend some much needed alone time with your partner? Put your child to bed and enjoy a nice soak in the tub with a glass of wine? Binge your favorite show with some ice cream? All of these are possible when you sleep train!

  5. More enjoyable family time. Friday night pizza and game night. Sweet cuddles after a long day. Talking about your child's day at dinner. Movie night. Some of these moments are a dream to even think about. Witching hour turns into two or three hours. You start dreading bedtime around lunchtime. When we put routines in place and everyone in the house is sleeping better, witching hour(s) will turn into enjoyable hour(s) spent as a family.

  6. Better temperaments in the house. Babies cry, toddlers have tantrums, we lose patience. When routines are strong, when sleep is adequate, temperaments reflect that. Less crying, less tantrums, less meltdowns, less yelling, more patience.

The benefits of sleep training far outweigh the lack of sleep and more stress that occurs when babies and toddlers fight sleep, take poor naps, long bedtime routines and night wakings.
