Online Baby Sleep Consultant
Quality rest is crucial for you and your baby's health and well-being.
Insufficient quality of sleep is a common element that disrupts families from getting the vital energy they need to face the next day. This sense of exhaustion can affect every aspect of your life, and can feel hopeless to get out of.
How, you are wondering, can you just get your baby to sleep!!?
The idea of sleep training tends to get a bad rap as a one-size-fits-all approach that boils down to letting your child "cry it out". Fortunately, there are more gentle methods of sleep training that can be used to teach babies and toddlers to sleep independently. Meet online with a Baby Sleep Consultant to learn and support these methods.
Do you hear that? It's hope! That you and your baby or toddler can get a better night's sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions
When do babies start sleeping through the night?
Babies can start the sleep training process as early as 12 weeks. No time is too late to fix sleep patterns though! You want the best outcomes for your baby, your self, and your family, and that may be different from home to home.
What is the purpose of sleep training?
Sleep is so crucial to our human development and overall health. By creating a healthy sleep association early, babies and toddlers have easier transitions during developmental milestones, and have less stress and health issues throughout their lives.
Sleep training helps babies and toddlers learn to fall asleep on their own which helps them to have healthy sleep habits that will last throughout their lives. It also helps parents and families to get better quality sleep.
How to sleep train babies?
I work with babies natural circadian rhythms so they are hitting their optimal sleep windows when their sleep drive is the highest. When meeting with parents, I like to discuss all aspects of their little one's sleep, including environment, schedule, and the parents' ultimate goals.
Together, we work on a plan that is most gentle on both baby and parent; with daily progress check ins.
What are baby sleep training methods, and which do you recommend?
Are there effective alternatives to the cry it out method? Yes there are!
There are so many different methods to sleep train outside of the widely known, Cry it Out method, which basically consists of letting a child cry themselves back to sleep.
Our approach includes gentle sleep training methods. However, when working with parents, we always assess the family's personality, parenting style and temperament of baby, to help inform which method is best for them.
What does a Baby Sleep Consultant do?
A sleep consultant helps families to teach their little ones how to sleep independently, so they have a solid sleep foundation for the rest of their lives.
Here are some common issues a sleep specialist can help with:
How to get a baby to sleep in a crib alone
Infant & Toddler Sleep Training methods
Gentle ways to sleep train
Sleep training for nap time
Baby crying in sleep
When to start sleep training?
At 12 weeks old, babies have typically begun to roll over, which is a huge developmental milestone. This is the perfect time to begin a sleep program.
How long does sleep training take?
Typically, parent's start to see improvement in their little one's sleep within the first couple of nights.
Do all babies need to be sleep trained?
As much as human's have a need for sleep, we actually need help to learn how to fall asleep independantly. As babies, we do not know how to discern night from day, and need to not only be taught to sleep at night but, also how to link sleep cycles and self soothe so we can fall asleep and stay asleep.
Is it different sleep training a toddler?
Absolutely! Toddlers are developmentally learning how to push boundaries and find their independence so, sleep training toddlers looks much different than sleep training a baby. With different methods to meet where they are at developmentally, and consistency, toddlers can not only be sleep trained but also love having a bedtime routine.
In addition to infant sleep, we are trained and experienced in toddler sleep as well!
We work with parents to best understand their child's temperament and tendencies.
Together, we work on a plan that will best fit their little one's personality, as well as meet the goals of the parent, so that everyone starts to sleep through the night as soon as possible.
What is your service area?
The Womb Room provides virtual sleep consultant services throughout the world via zoom, phone, email, and text.
How much does a sleep consultant cost?
We offer two packages, which we have found address most families' sleep challenges, based on the age of your child.
See more about these packages above!
If you have any questions about your particular needs, or our costs or services, please feel free to reach out to us.
Is a baby sleep consultant covered by insurance?
Unfortunately, most insurance programs do not cover sleep consultations.
However, you can use most health savings accounts (FSA/HSA) to cover the fees!
