A sleepless baby can lead to sleepless nights for the entire family. But instead of feeling discouraged, you can feel empowered, educated, and — above all — well-rested. How? With the help of an experienced sleep coach! Here are six reasons why you and your family should consider hiring one.
1. You’re sleep-deprived
Most parents with newborn or young children expect to be really tired, but they may not understand the long-term consequences. On top of always feeling fuzzy and drowsy, a lack of sleep can negatively affect your mood, memory, and concentration. Over a longer period of time, sleep deprivation can also increase your risk of future health issues like high blood pressure and diabetes. The short of it? Your sleep is just as important as baby’s, and a sleep coach can help with just that.
2. Your baby won’t sleep through the night
Not sleeping through the night is expected for the few first months with a newborn. But if your baby isn’t trained to sleep through the night, their sleep issues can persist for years. Teaching a baby (and yourself!) early on in life — with the help of a trusted sleep coach — can ensure a full night’s sleep for everyone.
3. Your baby keeps waking up
Another hurdle for parents is that the baby may be a good sleeper at first but then suddenly start waking up during the night. When that happens, it can be hard to figure out why it’s happening and how to get your baby back to sleep. A sleep coach can help you understand what your baby needs when they wake up, so you’re not left guessing and, ultimately, frustrated.
4. You can’t soothe baby
Getting your baby to sleep or getting them back to sleep can be incredibly challenging for parents. What do they want? What do they need? Do they feel okay? What can I do to get them back to sleep? These are all typical questions for parents to ask. But with a sleep coach like Rachelle, you’ll actually have the answers. Your personalized plan includes learning about your baby’s digestive system, nervous system, and sleep cycles so you can soothe Baby back to sleep any time, anywhere.
5. You think it’s ‘just a phase’
Parents of children can all relate to being tired. But just because it’s a shared (and expected) experience, it doesn’t have to become a norm for you. Don’t shrug off your sleep struggles as ‘just a phase’ or something your kids will grow out of. With a sleep coach, the only phase you and your baby will know is a full night’s sleep.
6. You feel discouraged
Countless articles, videos, mixed information, the cry-it-out method…if you’ve tried it all and still can’t get your baby to sleep, it can feel incredibly discouraging. But there’s still hope (and help)! Rachelle doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach; she creates a personalized plan for every family and baby. So if you feel like you’ve exhausted every option, remember there’s still an option that’s tailored exactly to your needs.
