Are you a sleep deprived parent to a toddler or child who is struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep throughout the night?
Do you feel frustrated that your once perfect sleeper is now battling you at bedtime?
Has one more story turned into 6 stories, 3 songs, a jig and a back rub with a last minute wee and drink thrown into the mix?
Are you finding yourself sitting in your child's room while they fall asleep every night and every time they wake up?
Are tantrums more common and harder to manage since your child's sleep has lessened?
Is your child pressing all your buttons and finding new ones you didn't know existed?
Are you personally struggling with your emotions due to your child pushing the boundaries and not behaving as you would like?
Do you portray the happy parent image when really you are suffering and no-one seems to be able to offer actual help?
Would you like to be able to put your child to bed at bedtime feeling confident that you will have some time to yourself, and that your child is happy to sleep there until the next morning?
And crucially, would you like to have an evening to spend with your partner getting to know each other, and have a full nights sleep again?
If so, I can help.
I am a holistic sleep coach who understands what sleep deprivation can do to relationships, quality of work and mental and physical health.
I also understand that knowledge is a very powerful tool which is why I created the Behaviour and Sleep Support Guide to empower parents of children from 20 months to 6 years old, and offer strategies to help support your child on their journey into becoming a well rounded, emotionally intelligent and secure child who is happy to sleep through the night in their sleep space.
If you are tired of reading book after book and scrolling the internet just to find contradictory information, while not retaining the information due to sleep deprivation, you may find that watching videos with detailed, concise and easy to understand and digest information is what you are looking for.
This course is £129 and comes with 2 months online support in a private Facebook group directly from Nicole who runs Baby2Sleep.
You do not have to go on this journey alone, and you do not have to remortgage your house to get the help you need.
If you decide that you would prefer more in depth help, you only pay the difference up to the one to one support plan.
You can read one of the reviews here.
You do not have to change everything in one go if you don't want to. Subtle changes can make a big difference, but knowing what to change and why can be one of the keys to success.
To support your young child to sleep well at this age is rarely just about sleep, you need to look at every aspect of your 24 hours and work on their day time behaviour, setting out your stall with your boundaries and helping them understand their emotions during the day when the brain is more ready to learn and process.
I have changed countless lives by reintroducing sleep into families lives again, and know from personal experience how damaging the effects of sleep deprivation are.
When you can put your child to bed knowing they are happy to sleep and you can start giving you some time back, you will feel like a different person and your life will change.
If not now, when???
If you want the gift of sleep and happiness, (that does some with some hard work to get there, I won't lie), then give my course a go and let me help you on your journey to a better nights sleep.
