FAQ

I truly believe there is no problem too great and there are answers to every problem. Parenting can be challenging and exhausting, and we are often being pulled in so many directions. I strive to give parents tangible tools, strategies, and scripts to motivate and inspire their children to cooperate while setting clear boundaries and expectations, to hold their children accountable in a calm and compassionate way, and to have the confidence in their children that they really can be successful. My hope is to guide parents to feel empowered, encouraged, and supported each step of the parenting journey and to teach these skills in a positive way with respect to each individual family and child. I believe that children can be taught to do good for the sake of doing good, and, in teaching them to do so, we, as parents, can strengthen our connections with our children.
I do not recommend any formal sleep training until your baby is 4.5 months (18 weeks) of age. However, this does not mean that we can not begin to lay the foundation for healthy sleep habits before then. By teaching your infant good sleep habits from the very beginning you may find that there is no need for formal sleep training down the road.
If you are at my website or a friend referred you to SleepyHead Solutions, you likely are at the end of your rope. Perhaps you’ve read books to help you or asked families and friends for advice, but nothing seems to be working. I know how much information is out there and how overwhelming it can be, especially when you are sleep-deprived. As a certified infant and child sleep consultant I will take the guesswork out by creating for you a customized sleep plan tailored to your specific challenges and child. My calm, non-judgmental approach will immediately put you at ease. I will provide you with ongoing guidance and support throughout the process as I share with you my knowledge about sleep. Together, I will teach your child to be a healthy sleeper.

I am certified as an infant and child sleep consultant through the Family Sleep Institute, having completed over 70 hours of specialized training.

I also have a child behavior certification from The Early Years Family Development Centre, Inc.

I continue to attend classes and seminars to increase my sleep knowledge to better serve the families with whom I work. As a mother of 3 children, I have hands-on experience teaching children to become healthy sleepers. Furthermore, I am a licensed Physical Therapist and hold a Masters Degree in Public Health; I have 15+ years of experience in various health settings working with families and empowering them to better their lives.

Absolutely not. There are many approaches to teach your child to be a more independent sleeper. No one approach is better than the other and SleepyHead Solutions does not push any one sleep training method. Instead, I listen to your concerns and challenges and together we decide on the best approach for your family.

Many parents think this is true about their children or tell themselves that their kids just need less sleep than others. Yes, every child is different, but research shows that most of our children are not getting the amount of sleep they require. It may appear that your child requires less sleep than what is recommended, but the opposite is most likely true. With a sleep plan that feels right for your family, along with time, patience, and consistency, every child has the potential to be a good sleeper. Your investment in your child’s sleep habits will pay off for a lifetime!
SleepyHead Solutions works with families, regardless of their location, throughout the United States, Canada, and internationally. Our consultations can be done by phone, Skype, or FaceTime.
