Home visits allow me to provide you with the support you and your family need in your own environment. By coming to your home I am able to see where your baby sleeps, and how you have your space set up, which gives me valuable information in helping you strategize on what will work best in creating a workable sleep plan. It gives us a chance to go through your baby's waking to sleeping cycle so I can see what happens while you are helping your baby with sleep.
Sleep is precious, especially with a baby in the house! I want to give you realistic expectations depending on your baby's age and stage. I encourage you to listen to your baby so you start to understand what your baby is communicating while making sounds, crying or fussing. I do not believe in letting a baby cry for extended periods of time unattended, however, I have seen babies who fuss and cry while in an unwinding process as they get ready for sleep. I do not believe babies should be left to cry on their own especially before 4 months, and certainly not if a baby is screaming in terror at any age.
That said, I want to help you not be afraid of your crying baby. I like to think of this process as sleep teaching, both for you and the baby. I do not believe this is a quick fix process. It takes time to learn.
