Baby/Infant Sleep Training- Tips, tricks, and methods to help your baby get more sleep and sleep through the night.

Potty Trainer Sleep Trains

I have a guest blogger! Diana (below) sleep trained her daughter using The Baby Sleep Trainer Program + Support, and she in turn, helped my associate, Rachel, potty train her 3 year old boy. Read on for her experience, and also check out Rachel's experience with Diana's PooLogix program too! <3 -- I would like [...]

Is My Baby Getting Enough Sleep?

I’m grateful for the opportunity to shed some light on this question since the answer is relatively straightforward. Assuming we are not talking about newborns, the guidelines I’m about to put forward apply to all kids through to elementary school age. All children “should” sleep about 10–12 hours overnight, and for babies and toddlers who [...]

Sleep Training and Attachment

I tend to answer the same questions over and over again from clients reaching out for sleep training help. The one I get most often is, “Will sleep training harm my baby’s attachment to me as their mother?” Even once a mother knows logically that her child has a sleep issue and that everyone would [...]

Sleep Training Methods: Which is Best for Your Baby or Toddler?

Many parents wonder, which is the best sleep training method to use on my baby? I think it’s normal that families, mothers in particular, spend a lot of time researching different baby sleep training methods, since we live in a time where we have such a huge amount of information available to us 24/7. Sometimes [...]

Cry It Out for Naps

When families come to me sleep deprived and ready for help, they are almost always more concerned with nighttime sleep rather than daytime naps. While naps are likely hard on Mom or Dad, it’s the repeated nighttime waking that can really affect an entire family’s health and well-being. But, the big irony is that nighttime [...]

Why Won’t My Baby Nap?

As a sleep coach, I get a lot of short, general questions, which often require me to ask a number of follow up questions. This question, “Why won’t my baby nap?” is one of the ones I get most often. The truth is, there might be many reasons your baby isn’t napping, and I think [...]

What You May Not Know About Baby Sleep Safety

For a variety of reasons, I am personally and professionally a stickler on safety. When it comes to sleep environments, I never deviate from advising infants and toddlers are sleeping in environments that are totally safe. For the newborn stage, safe sleep habits are often ignored in an effort to produce longer sleep periods. Instead [...]

The Four Month Sleep Regression

Ahhhhh, the four month sleep regression. Rare is the family that doesn’t experience some sort of disruption to their infant’s sleep patterns around the fourth month of life. Some experienced/well-read parents anxiously dread the impending “regression,” while most new moms and dads are completely blindsided by their little one’s sleep suddenly taking a nosedive around [...]

Swaddling

Music: Bensound.com The market for baby sleep devices can be very fickle. All the different objects and devices parents use to get their kiddos to sleep can gain and lose popularity very quickly. But you know what never falls out of favor? Swaddling. I recommend swaddling babies in the following circumstances: With pediatrician’s [...]

Baby’s Sleep Changes

I started Baby Sleep Trainer because I was shocked that I wasn’t able to compel my newborn to sleep “better,” and I spent all my time and energy in the first few months of my daughter’s life trying to figure out how to “solve” her sleep problems and how to “not create bad habits.” My [...]
