" Take rest. A field that is rested gives a bountiful crop."- Ovid
We all need sleep. We need it to be our best. But in the often chaotic time of early parenthood most new Moms and Dads walk around in a sleep deprived fog barely functioning. They abandon their instincts and just try to survive hour to hour and frequently forget how revolutionary a good nights sleep can be for the whole family. It doesn't have to be this way. In fact, it shouldn't be this way.
Babies are not born knowing how to sleep. They burst into this big bad world and are immediately poked and prodded, swept away from the serene darkness and security of the womb. So why does it consistently surprise all of us that they do not immediately know how to acclimate? And why do so many of us assume they will learn this on their own? Did you learn how to swim by yourself? Did you learn how to ride a bike by yourself? The truth is sleep, like other learned activities, can be taught and fostered and each child must be loved, respected and nurtured along the way.
After years of casually helping friends and acquaintances teach their children to sleep, I am excited to walk side by side with others and be the supportive voice to guide you on your journey to healthy sleep for your baby. You will not only be doing yourself a great service but you will be instilling wonderful sleep patterns in your child for years to come.
