Are you a parent struggling to help your child sleep through the night?

Are you tired and irritable, but not sure how to fix things?

Does your baby:

  • Need to be held, fed, or rocked to sleep?
  • Wake you more than 3 times a night?

Do you:

  • Dread naptime and/or bedtime?
  • Feel exhausted all of the time?

Is your exhaustion leading to...

  • Confrontations with your spouse/partner?
  • Lost productivity at work and lost joy at home?

You know that something has to change and you’re at your wits ends. And you’re being hard on yourself, because you figure this shouldn’t be so darn difficult.

You know that children are peacefully sleeping all over the world, so you figure you must be doing something wrong.

You’re losing your patience and you don’t like the person you’re becoming when you’re sleep deprived. And you know the lack of sleep can’t be good for your child either.

You're Not Alone!

Thousands of parents feel exactly the way you do. 

During my first 3.5 years as a Mom, I was completely sleep deprived. I tried everything I knew, but nothing was working. I did a lot of “accidental parenting,” which was the next quick-fix strategy to get sleep short term, but never worked for the long term.

 

And the worst part was that I so wanted to parent from a place of love and respect. But I was too tired to do that. I found myself losing my temper with my children. I was angry and frustrated and it was affecting my marriage.

 

I even went against my personal beliefs and let my son “cry it out,” with no success. I felt like a failure, because I didn't know how to help my son sleep.

 As a family, we were ALL sleep deprived!

There IS Hope!

So I get it! I had a baby that refused to sleep! I had a baby that needed something else, but I didn’t know what that was. I had a baby that wasn’t “by the book.”

 

But I’m here to tell you that there is hope for your baby, toddler, or preschooler to get sleep! Your child can learn how to sleep through the night. You can restore peaceful sleep to your entire home.

You've already tried...

And I know what you might be thinking. You’re saying to yourself, “But, Irene, I’ve already tried everything!”

You’ve done the google searches, you’ve read the books, you’ve asked your pediatrician and you’ve asked your mother and friends.

You’ve:

  • Walked around the house, driven him in the car, and/or pushed him in the stroller
  • Given him a bath, a pacifier and did his bedtime routine
  • Snuggled with him until he fell asleep (or let him sleep in your bed)

Let's Restore Sleep

You really can get sleep-filled nights again. You can teach your baby healthy sleep habits, be a happy parent again, and have a harmonious home. You can find delight in the parenting journey!

 

I know this for a fact, because I found the solution when I too was a sleep-deprived parent. I’m forever grateful that I found Kim West {“The Sleep Lady.”}

 

It forever changed my life. Not only was I able to restore sleep in my home, but I learned the healthy sleep habits that I could apply through all their developmental stages.

 

And because of the profound impact it had on me and my family, I have since dedicated my professional career to helping other families experience the same. There’s no greater joy I have than restoring sleep and helping families have healthy children, happy parents and harmonious homes.

I was one of the “First 50″ graduates of The Gentle Sleep Coaching Program, which is currently the most extensive and professional sleep-certification program available. The program involves over 80 hours of training, case supervision with Kim West, and a certification exam.  Kim has been helping tired parents for over seventeen years and she’s the industry expert.

 

Since my certification, I’ve helped hundreds of families reclaim and restore sleep in their home. Learning how to implement gentle sleep solutions successfully is possible and it works!  You can implement healthy sleep habits and leave a legacy in your parenting.

 

As an educator for children and parents, I believe:

  • Learning to go to sleep is a learned skill. Children need to learn this as a life-long skill.
  • Understanding how sleep works during the first five years of their life will impact your child’s academic success in the future.
  • We learn our greatest lessons from our children.
  • We are “perfectly imperfect” parents and those imperfections will help guide us in our parenting journey.
  • You’re your child’s first and best teacher. You’re their best advocate and expert.
  • Reaching out for support makes you an even more amazing parent!

Let Me Help!

Let’s work together to help restore sleep in your home. Here’s how it works:

 

We’ll start with a two-hour sleep consultation. If you live in the Raleigh, NC area, we can meet in the comfort of your home. Or we can use Skype or a Google+ Hangout.

 

We’ll have a thorough discussion of your child’s medical, developmental and sleep history. We’ll talk about your frustrations, what you’ve tried and your sleep goals.

 

Together, we’ll create a step-by-step sleep coaching plan tailored to your family’s unique circumstances. We’ll take into account your child’s age, developmental stage, and temperament. We’ll build the plan around your parenting philosophy and values.

 

Every family is different, so every plan is different and customized.

My Goal is to Help You

  • Understand your child’s tears and what they’re trying to communicate to you
  • Create the most effective sleep environment
  • Create routines and rituals that will build trust and bond you and your child
  • Enjoy bedtime (and naptime)
  • Parent from a place of love
