Babies & Children
Let the Sleep Nurse get your kids (and you!) sleeping better.
Parents today are constantly being bombarded with questions & insensitive statements. Seems that almost everyone has an opinion to share. Not surprisingly, many of these judgments are about sleep.
As a parent, I have no doubt that you have been asked…
Is your baby “good”?
Does your child sleep through the night?
And they’re HOW old?
Somehow, the suggestion is that you are less of a parent, simply because your loved one has difficulties with sleep.
Simply put, this is not true! The fact that you’re visiting my website, tells me that YOU ARE A GOOD PARENT!
The reality is, that babies (and children) wake up, and for good reason!
The early months and years of parenthood are a sleep deprived blur for many…
But they don’t have to be!
Say hello to the Sleep Nurse!
I specialize in providing Sleep Education.
Because, “when you know why babies do the things they do,
it’s easier to figure out how to respond”. ~ Dr. Sears
My approach is gentle and matched with your child’s temperament and your family’s parenting philosophy.
Let me help your littles (and you!) start sleeping better today!
