Our Holistic Approach

As Holistic Infant and Child Sleep Consultants we work with families teaching them how to help their children get the sleep they need. We work side by side with families creating a program that is 100% fully customized for them. We firmly believe that sleep is not only about sleep and there is a no one size fits all approach. There are many contributing factors that can lead to sleep challenges, which is why we have designed a program that not only determines the root cause of those challenges but takes an emotional based approach towards healthy sleep.

Using our experience in child development and our ability to use various methods and techniques, we create a plan that is based on your goals and parenting style. A plan that you will be comfortable with! We know that if you are not comfortable with what you are implementing, you will not be able to follow it consistently.

Why an Emotional based program?

Our number one goal when working with families is to ensure that the whole family is adjusting well to the changes. When you are teaching your child the skills they need for sleep it is important to us that you are still maintaining the bond and trust that you have worked so hard to build.

Our background in Early Childhood Education as well as our training with Hand in Hand Parenting by Connection has given us the tools to understand childhood behaviour and emotions, fears and anxieties and how best to handle all types of scenarios.

Why our Support is So Important

babywearing-photos-pure-natural-newborn-photography-ottawa-gatineau-park-dad-father-ring-sling-sewfunky-sewfunkysling-wrapgrey-polkadot_STF0952We genuinely believe that families who embark on this journey need consistent, reliable support.

Our non-judgemental guidance and support not only empowers you with the knowledge to change the way your family sleeps but we are there with you each step of the way to encourage, support and hold your hand through this process making changes based on how you and your child are responding. We adapt our program based on your goals and our flexibility allows this process to go as slow or as fast as you need it to go for your family.

We are with you every step of the way!

Why our approach is not Cry it Out

Taking an emotional based approach ensures that you are attending to your child’s needs throughout this whole process.

There are so many methods and techniques that can be used to coach a baby or child through the learning process of healthy sleep. We cannot guarantee that your child will not shed any tears but we can guarantee that we will encourage you to respond to them as they need you. Our program focuses on attending to your child’s needs as much as you feel necessary while they learn this skill.

We have the ability to create a plan for you, make any necessary changes to help your child adjust and most importantly help you to understand the emotions your child is dealing with. We will guide you through supporting those emotions while always encouraging you to attend to your child at all times.

We genuinely care about you and your child and your success!
