The most common sleep issue I see has nothing to do with how awesome a parent you are, but everything to do with the temperment of your child. Alert temperments can cause a child to have a difficult time settling into sleep. As a result, to foster a secure connection, you are nursing or feeding to sleep. Or holding and rocking to sleep. Or letting your child fall asleep next to you is the best way to help them settle into sleep. Those are wonderful security estabilishing techniques. But there may come a time when it’s not sustainable and it’s time to help your child develope more independant ways of falling asleep. How your child falls asleep can effect what your child needs to fall back to sleep in the middle of the night. There comes a time when you want your child to sleep through the night or at least do a longer stretch so you can get good sleep too. That time may be at 6 months, or a year or 2 years. It’s never too late to make a change to help the whole family get good sleep. Making a big change at bedtime is often the answer to this common issue. Let me help.
