How exactly does a child sleep consultation work?
After choosing a child sleep package that best meets the needs of your family:
- You will be asked to fill out an Intake Form. The information you provide on this form is very important and will walk me through your child’s sleep history, family make-up, temperament, current schedules, sleeping/feeding issues, etc.
- After I’ve received the intake form, I’ll send you an introductory email where we’ll set up a 15-minute phone call to go over any additional questions or concerns I may have before creating your child’s customized sleep plan*.
- This detailed child sleep plan will be passed along to you via email, when you’ll have the opportunity to respond with questions or areas that need to be “tweaked” so that it feels comfortable for your family. The optional days of support follow over the course of 2 weeks.
It typically takes children 1-2 weeks to show signs of permanent progress. If you choose a package that includes email support, please know that you can spread the email days out over the course of up to 2 weeks to ensure success. I am very committed to seeing your family leave with healthy, happy sleepers and eaters, so don’t be surprised if you hear from me for impromptu check-ins throughout the course of the plan!
I want you to know that I see healthy sleep as a top priority in child rearing. Without it, the whole family suffers and the effects on the child with sleep issues will follow him/her into adulthood. I will never push you to do anything that causes you or your spouse to feel uncomfortable. If at any time you disagree with a recommendation, please let me know and I won’t hesitate to switch things up so that it feels good to you.
As soon as we agree on a plan, I expect that you will follow through and be consistent with your child(ren). Child sleep training is only successful when parents and caregivers stick together, stay consistent and practice patience. It took your child months to develop unhealthy sleep practices, and it won’t be an overnight fix! Together we will show your sweet little guy or gal how to fall asleep, stay asleep, and grow to have many happy, well-rested days. Happy Healthy Sleep offer child sleep training in Atlanta, Georgia and in any other state.
