Do you need a sleep coach?Have you ever thrown up your hands in frustration while your child screams out at you in sheer exhaustion? Tried putting them down for a nap and all they wanted to do was play with you or their toys?
Or do you have an unruly toddler who was once the perfect sleeper but has since morphed into a night owl who refuses to go to bed at a decent hour or nap during the day? Have you tried "everything you can think of" to get your child to go to sleep and they still refuse?
If you've answered yes or nodded your head to any of the above, it might be time to check out a sleep coach.
But Is It Really Worth It?Through training, technique, and patience, using a sleep coach and learning the way your child thinks about sleep might help you approach the situation with a new outlook. By gaining the insight a sleep coach has to the inner workings of baby and toddler sleep, a lot of frustration can be removed from the equation.
Some of the stories I've heard, including one from a good friend over at Mommy to Elodie, are down right amazing! By working with Lauren, following her advice, and sticking with it, moms and dads have had the satisfaction of happy, sleeping children who magically fall asleep at bed- and nap-time!
For more proof of Lauren's sleep success check out the testimonials on her website.
Lauren Boston, Sleep Coach & Postpartum Doula, has a true passion for all things related to children's sleep.
Her own daughter was colicky, and a terrible sleeper. Shortly after Lauren called on the services of a sleep coach she saw dramatic results in her daughter's sleep, and overall mood. Lauren was convinced she had to share this gift with other tired parents.
Lauren is a Gentle Sleep Coach, trained and certified by Kim West (aka, 'The Sleep Lady'). The method she teaches is gentle, and does not leave children alone to "cry-it-out".
Her knowledge, gained by personal experience and formal training, makes her an excellent choice for parents looking to transform sleepless nights and create a well-rested family.
