Waking kids up is the worst. But sometimes it’s necessary to preserve night time sleep. For babies, we generally don’t have to worry about capping off naps unless they go longer than about three hours. And that’s more for the sake of getting full bellies during the day. For toddlers, however, we often have to cut naps short and/or push bedtime back to preserve those 11-12 hours at night! And around the age of three, that nap should be dropped altogether and replaced with quiet time, once again to preserve those 11-12 hours at night. Some families choose to keep the nap longer, which is fine, that just means a later bed time is necessary and you can only expect about 8-10 hours at night. .

If you’re confused as to how in the world a baby or toddler could sleep 11-12 hours at night, I’d love to chat!

Let me guess, you are feeling nervous about the idea of your children sharing a room. So many unknowns of how it will go.
.
.
.
While you can’t control everything when it comes to your children room sharing, there are some things you can do to set them up for success! 🤗
.
.
.
1) Hold off on room sharing until both children are sleeping through the night. If one is still waking, it will likely disrupt the other. .
.
.
2) If your children go to bed at the same time, great! If not, put the down child who needs to go to bed earlier, and then when it’s time for your other child to go to bed, complete their routine in a different room, then quietly take them to bed.
.
.
.
3) If your little’s are older, you can put sleep rules in place to help them understand the sleep expectations. .
.
.
4) If one of your children need to be sleep trained, temporarily move the other one to a different room. For example, if your 3 year old needs to be sleep trained, but your 13 month old is sleeping well, set up a pack n play in another room for your 13 month old while you sleep train the 3 year old. Once sleep training is complete, move them back in together.
.
.
.
5) White noise is your friend 😉. Not only does it offer a soothing component, but it also can help block out noises in the room, which will help prevent one from waking the other. .

The 2 Bedtime Tips Every Parent Needs To Know
🌜
While having a child who goes to sleep well and stays in bed is a process that can feel overwhelming when you try to navigate it on your own, there are two tips to keep in mind:
1. Have a consistent bedtime routine
2. Let them fall asleep in their beds
🌜
Truly these two tips are foundational to healthy, pain free bedtimes.
🌜
Why Does A Consistent Bedtime Routine Matter?
Everyone likes a predictable routine: first this, then that, followed by the other. You know what to expect, there are no surprises, and everything goes as planned.
🌜
Bedtime can be just like that, too, when you take the time to create a routine that your child can depend on. Bedtimes aren’t meant to be elaborate or complex; they are a simple way to cue your child’s mind and body that it’s time to settle down and sleep is imminent. Bedtime routines should last about 20 minutes and may include brushing teeth, putting on pajamas, a bedtime story, and a lullaby. They oughtn’t include anything rambunctious or stimulating, but instead provide the necessary transition from an active day to a peaceful bedtime.And when that routine is consistent, they know what to expect each and every night which will help you both enjoy bedtime a lot more.
🌜
Why Do They Need To Fall Asleep In Bed?
There’s little more precious than holding your sweet, sleeping child.But if you want her to stay asleep and sleep well all night long? Well, that’s going to be trickier if she is relying on you for rest. Also, you can’t do it every night indefinitely (remember, routine is important!).Once your child learns to fall asleep on her own, then when she wakes up during the night she will be able to go back to sleep without crying for you, needing help, and so on. Independent sleep is a valuable life skill that she will need to learn eventually, and the earlier it happens the healthier her body, mind, and emotions will be because sleep is essential for development. 🌜
I can help walk you through this season in a way that doesn’t leave either one of you emotionally exhausted, frustrated, or ready to give up.

If your child is under 3 years old and has been climbing out of the crib, it does not mean that he or she is ready for a toddler bed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In fact, we advise keeping your child in a crib until the age of 3. At that age, they are much more likely to understand consequence and communicate better which will make bedtime escapes easier to avoid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is also a safer age for your child to be able to be “free” at night. If your little angel needs some support for staying in bed, we’re here to help.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Melatonina vs, cortisol. Estas dos imágenes son el tema de conversacion de en la mayoria de los cafes de mamás, mi hijo duerme como ángel toda la noche... el mio no, llora y hace berrinche la noche completa. ¿qué cambia, de qué depende? De estas dos hormonitas que viven dentro de ti y de tu hijo. Melatonina es una hormona que produce el cuerpo humano de manera regular y rutinaria desde los 5 meses de edad, esta hormona es la que nos induce al sueño y nos ayuda a que este sea reparador y profundo; para que mi cuerpo pueda producir melatonina y aprovecharla en su mayor plenitud, mi cuerpo debe de ser un recipiente apto para ella, la melatonina comienza a segregarse diariamente a las 5:30 pm aprox, eleva su nivel hasta llegar a su punto máximo a las 11:30 pm para despues comenzar a bajar hará desaparecer del cuerpo a las 5:30 am. por otro lado tenemos el cortisol una hormona que el cuerpo produce en reacción a cierta situacion bajo la que el cuerpo se encuentra... eso quiere decir que no se produce de manera rutinaria. ¿cuando el cuerpo de tu bebe produce cortisol? Cuando este esta sobre cansado, sobre estimulado, bajo amenza, o en una situacion incomoda. ¿ y que ocaciona el cortisol en el cuerpo? mucha adrenalina, lo cual provoca, berrinches, euforia, no poder dormir con facilidad, dormir con poca duración, y despertar estresado. Es muy importante evitar que el cuerpo de nuestros pequeños produzca cortisol para que así la melatonina si s epueda producir y las noches y siestas sean faciles.

The idea of a good, well-adjusted child only serves one purpose: to make US feel good and validated as parents! When our children sleep, behave, are sociable, well-mannered, and independent, we are seen as good parents. If they cry, seek comfort, or express any negative emotions, we feel incompetent (even though this has nothing to do with our abilities) as parents!⁣

We do love them unconditionally, but we show them they are only welcome when they comply to the expectations we have grown to believe are right. This uneducated idealisation of babies and the idea that good mothers have good babies, leads parents to seek for measures that help their children comply (ignoring who they are and what they need, and disrespecting their wellbeing).⁣

When a baby who is able to self-settle and sleep all night on their own, is seen as “good”, many parents will feel compelled to sleep train in order reach this standard, unaware that THEIR baby is actually the norm!⁣

Of course we all want independent, well-behaved & well-adjusted children, but a child who stops asking for help when they need it, is not always what it seems. This extract from The Children Were Fine, explains it perfectly:⁣

“When children face separation or loss, they sometimes withdraw into a compliant state and it can be hard for the adults around them to remain open to what is happening for them at a deeper level. Even the most sensitive adults can fall into the trap of believing that a compliant or withdrawn child is genuinely ‘fine’. (...) When the adults around them are not able to help them with their distress, children internalise their feelings and become outwardly compliant.(...) the assumption is so easily made that the ‘good’ child is ‘well adjusted’.⁣

However they will be doing a considerably better service to children by remembering that in allowing them to express their feelings they are ‘not causing distress, but discovering it’; and by doing so, they are allowing these children to have their feelings responded to and understood, giving them crucial experience of being accepted and receiving the comfort they need from the adults around them.”

This is how I do most of my Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) sessions: With headphones, in front of my computer in my home office, when the husband and the kids are out in the field 😀

My clients love the fact that they can have therapy in the comfort of their own home.

RTT goes super deep, and there is often a mega release of "stuff from the past" in form of tears, and many clients either like to have a nap after the session (or go out and get their hair and lashes done). Either way, RTT works!

Since I qualified, I have helped a solicitor overcome sugar addiction, a mum overcome secondary infertility, several coaches overcome money blocks and lack of self belief and sign new clients, a landlady sign a tenant after months of her annex being vacant, execs sleep better, a dentist feel more loveable, jobseekers overcome interview nerves, a mother with a history of abuse overcome her anger management issues, and so much more.

It's beautiful to know that I do what I love and I love what I do, and that it really helps people at such a deep level.

And the best part of it: All the results above were realised after just ONE session!

RTT is fast!

Because life is too short to spend hours lying on a couch talking about the past.

Wanna know more? Check my story highlights on RTT and my testimonials.

And if you feel like working with me is the next right step, then send me a DM and let's connect 😀

‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’.... 🎅🏻🎄❤️.. .
.💛I love Christmas, it’s a truly special time for families. However I used to really worry about this period when my little sleeper was really in the thick of her wakefulness. It can be a bit overwhelming, worrying and stressful and if you are already struggling with little or no sleep then the idea of lots of moving around, staying in different places or having people to stay and late nights can feel quite ‘big’ when you are in the midst of your sleep struggles.
.
💙
.Please don’t worry though whatever happens over that period is just temporary - be kind to yourselves, prioritise yours and babies/child’s needs and make sure you get extra help from all those extra visitors and family! .
.
.💛However if also you’d like to to get some sleepy advice, there’s lots of quick wins or simple gentle strategies to put in place to help your little one and you through this time. Some things can wait until the new year but better sleep doesn’t have too ! Contact me today for some sleep support as I have a couple of spaces left for packages before the end of the year! 💛💙💤

REPOST via @samfaiths ”Our sweet boy has been sleeping 8-10 hour stretches at night this week and this mama is loving it!

I remember thinking couple months ago while co-sleeping with Christian if I would ever get to enjoy sleeping again and it was rough.
But my friend Anna over at @littlewinkssleep saved us by helping us find a sleep routine that worked for us when C was only two months old and within a week C was sleeping in his crib and fell in to his new routine smoothly.
Don’t get me wrong there were rough nights, but Anna was always there to support us and help us through all the challenges. Now at 5 months he can fall asleep on his own anywhere with no fuss and wakes up the happiest boy!
We are so thankful for Anna, she is so passionate about helping families and can help your family too!”

Sleep tips for Christmas
Number 8

Recent studies have shown that the majority of children (and adults too) do not get enough physical activity.  Try for 15 minutes of extra physical activity a day and see what happens to your child's sleep (and your own if you try this too). Here are some suggestions for little ones by age: ** 0-6 months: Tummy time, rolling and stretching ** 6-9 months: Crawling and creating a floor obstacle course with cushions and soft toys ** 9-12 months: Encouraging standing, pulling, climbing and bouncing ** 12 months+: Walking, running, dancing, playing in the park and so on (P.s. this boy just melts my heart!)

ESSENTIAL TRAVEL TIPS ☃️🎄☃️🎄☃️
▫️
▫️
▫️ Travelling with children is very common at this time of year and can sometimes worry parents that this will throw their little ones out of their routine. This doesn't have to be the case. Below are my top tips for helping your children settle into new environments ▫️
▫️
▫️
🎅1. Make sure you bring the items you usually use at bedtimes - white noise machine, comforter, sleeping bag etc.
▫️
▫️
▫️
🎅2. If possible, show your little ones where they are sleeping a while before nap/bedtime so they become familiar with their surroundings. ▫️
▫️
▫️
🎅3. Try and keep to the same routine they have when you're at home so your infants day feels as normal as possible. ▫️
▫️
▫️
🎅4. If you're worried that the room your baby is staying in isn't going to be dark enough then @thegrocompany do an excellent portable blackout blind called Gro Anywhere Blackout Blind (not an #ad) ▫️

🎄✨💤 12 days of Christmas | Day 7 | Overtired? 💤✨🎄 Overtiredness is common. It can impact on the quality of sleep your baby or child gets because being overtired can actually cause more frequent night waking as it interrupts sleep cycles. You can get caught in a vicious cycle this way.
Signs of overtiredness are often: crying, bejng hyperactive, arching the back and going from awake to a "zonked out" state very quickly.
Addressing overtiredness can solve a multitude of sleep problems you may be experiencing.

Do you think overtiredness is a problem for your little one? I can advise on amount of sleep they need in a day, this could transform their overall sleep.

Posted @withrepost@alittlesleepstory My caption is just as misleading as the baby sleep industry is when they use the term ‘self-soothe’! ! !
It is an unreasonable expectation that a baby can ‘self-soothe’! And here’s why... A baby has six arousal states – being asleep, drowsy, hypo-aroused, calmly focused and alert, hyperaroused, then flooded (Dr. Stuart Shanker). Due to an infants immature brain development, particularly of the hippocampus or prefrontal cortex (responsible for rationalisation and self regulation), a baby cannot up-regulate or down-regulate from an arousal state. We also know their person permanence is not fully formed until 18 months of age. This process may begin at 6 months old where we begin to see separation anxiety when you leave the room but your baby doesn’t understand where you have gone or when/whether you are coming back.
It’s no wonder why our little ones get so upset when mummy or daddy leaves the room, especially when we leave them alone in a dark room to ‘self-soothe’. This would no doubtably send them into a hyperaroused/flooded state, eventually fight or flight would kick in and cortisol levels would rise.
When a baby is in a hyperaroused/flooded state they are burning A LOT of energy. They rely heavily on their parents or caregivers to SUPPORT them back to a state of calm (Dr. Allan Schore calls this co-regulation). If they are not comforted with PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL CLOSENESS by a loved one, they will continue to move up the arousal scale, burning significant amounts of energy and increasing cortisol levels.
There is this misconception that if a baby is left to cry alone they will eventually learn to self-soothe, resulting in falling asleep. Yes, a baby will most likely fall asleep after being left alone to cry, but this is NOT because they have learnt to self-soothe. “It is the brain’s last mechanism for protecting itself from severe energy depletion.” Dr. Stuart Shanker.
They just stop signalling because they learn no one is coming and they fall asleep from exhaustion.

• Short Naps •
.
Is your little one a cat nap pro?!
.
Short naps are common are very normal in babies under the age of 6 months. After this age, they are more likely to have the ability to consolidate naps.
.
If your little one is over 6 months and cat napping, they may be struggling to connect their sleep cycles. It could also be down to nap timings so it may be a case that they are not tired enough, or overtired which can lead to disturbed sleep.
.
Top tips:
• Try and stir your little one by placing your hand on them 5 minutes before they would normally wake and help coax them through the sleep cycle
• Consider removing any sleep props that they rely on to fall asleep in the first place, such as a dummy
• Keep an eye out on those early tired signs, awake periods have a big impact on well rested sleep both day and night.

"My 7 month-old needs to be nursed or rocked to sleep and wakes up every 2 hours screaming. Of course, he then needs to be nursed BACK to sleep.
.
.
We're bed-sharing because when I put him in the crib he wakes up right away or just cries. I'm very short and irritable with almost everyone around me.
.
.
My baby & I are desperate for better sleep..."
.
.
😢 Those were this sweet mama's words when she first joined my sleep training program.
.
.
Now, look how happy, positive & rested she & her baby are. It can happen for YOU too!

Who is currently struggling to get enough sleep? You already know lack of sleep isn’t healthy, but are you aware of the effects it has on your body? In case you have been telling yourself this is just a normal part of parenthood, I’d like to talk a bit about why sleep deprivation can be so detrimental to your health and well being. ⁣

Your body needs sleep in order to function properly. During sleep, your body heals itself and restores its chemical balance. ⁣

Without enough sleep, your brain and body systems won’t function normally. It can also dramatically lower your quality of life.⁣ ⁣
The long term effects of sleep deprivation have been linked by science to a wide array of health problems including:⁣
◾️memory problems ⁣
◾️mood changes ⁣
◾️weakened immunity ⁣
◾️risk of diabetes ⁣
◾️trouble with thinking & concentration ⁣
◾️accidents ⁣
◾️high blood pressure ⁣
◾️weight gain ⁣
◾️increased risk of postpartum depression⁣
◾️low sex drive ⁣

It’s my passion in life to help little ones and their families get the sleep they need. If you are struggling, send me a message so we can set up your free 15 minute consultation. ☎️ ⁣

The idea of a good, well-adjusted child only serves one purpose: to make US feel good and validated as parents! When our children sleep, behave, are sociable, well-mannered, and independent, we are seen as good parents. If they cry, seek comfort, or express any negative emotions, we feel incompetent (even though this has nothing to do with our abilities) as parents!⁣

We do love them unconditionally, but we show them they are only welcome when they comply to the expectations we have grown to believe are right. This uneducated idealisation of babies and the idea that good mothers have good babies, leads parents to seek for measures that help their children comply (ignoring who they are and what they need, and disrespecting their wellbeing).⁣

When a baby who is able to self-settle and sleep all night on their own, is seen as “good”, many parents will feel compelled to sleep train in order reach this standard, unaware that THEIR baby is actually the norm!⁣

Of course we all want independent, well-behaved & well-adjusted children, but a child who stops asking for help when they need it, is not always what it seems. This extract from The Children Were Fine, explains it perfectly:⁣

“When children face separation or loss, they sometimes withdraw into a compliant state and it can be hard for the adults around them to remain open to what is happening for them at a deeper level. Even the most sensitive adults can fall into the trap of believing that a compliant or withdrawn child is genuinely ‘fine’. (...) When the adults around them are not able to help them with their distress, children internalise their feelings and become outwardly compliant.(...) the assumption is so easily made that the ‘good’ child is ‘well adjusted’.⁣

However they will be doing a considerably better service to children by remembering that in allowing them to express their feelings they are ‘not causing distress, but discovering it’; and by doing so, they are allowing these children to have their feelings responded to and understood, giving them crucial experience of being accepted and receiving the comfort they need from the adults around them.”

Comment below if this rings true for you, too👇⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I had no idea that my baby would be perfectly fine (or that it was perfectly normal) if I let her nap on me. I remember being so obsessed with her sleep in the first few months. All of the messages I was being exposed to (even from her pediatrician) were telling me that she needed to be able to sleep in her crib and put herself to sleep.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
But guess what? Nothing I tried worked (and yes, I did try some forms of “gentle” sleep training, but it always made me feel awful and I never got very far). ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I wasn’t successful in changing my newborn (thankfully!), but I eventually changed myself. I became informed about normal biological infant sleep patterns and found my instincts. I realized my instincts were more powerful than any information I had been consuming for the last 6 months. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
So in case no one’s told you, it’s OKAY to let your baby sleep on you. You will not ruin your baby by letting her take naps in your arms. Please spread the word to other new mamas. ❤️⠀

For a comprehensive understanding of infant sleep patterns as well as solutions & strategies to support your baby to sleep better in a respectful way, check out my Infant & Toddler Sleep eCourse! Now through December 23rd, when you buy one, you get another FREE course to gift to anyone! Link in bio!

Isn’t it crazy that we believe we are training our babies to “self-soothe” by leaving them to “work things out” while screaming?

Let’s compare that to learning to ride a bike. First, we may allow the child to get used to riding with training wheels. Then, as they come off, you may want to hold the bike until they feel confident enough... and only then you let go. If they fall, you are right there by their side to support their tears. It’s a smooth process with loads of encouragement, support, and practice, like any skill training.

Should sleep be a skill, this would be the perfect example of how to sleep train. But, unlike bike riding, babies have been sleeping since the womb, they ALREADY KNOW how to sleep! Extending sleep happens when it’s safe and developmentally appropriate. So no matter how long you practice (putting them down drowsy but awake), no matter how much encouragement you give (on the sideline whispering “I love you”)... unless the conditions are right, they feel secure enough to let go, and their brain is ready, you are not actually teaching them anything!

Simply put, the brain of a baby is formed of three main areas (Hookway, 2019):
-the forebrain, or reptilian brain, responsible for homeostatic body functions such as body temperature, heart rate, breathing and the stress response, is fully formed at birth.
-the limbic system, or mammalian brain, responsible for our positive and negative emotional responses, is not fully developed until AT LEAST 2 years of age.
-the neocortex, or thinking brain, which controls the mammalian brain and is responsible for higher brain functions, including empathy, emotional regulation, and self-soothing, is not fully developed until around 25 years of age!

Therefore, it is absurd to expect a baby or young child to calm themselves down from a state of extreme stress and work things out before falling asleep peacefully, having gained a new skill, all by themselves! This is not to say babies cannot settle into sleep on their own at 4 months of age if all their needs are met and the conditions are right. Self-settling - possible, although unusual. Self-soothing, not possible. Have you asked WHY they fall asleep?

I will never get tired of saying this: babies KNOW how to sleep, but they are not meant to sleep through the night! Don’t waste money on promises to “help” your baby sleep longer than they should. Conditioning your babies to not need you when it’s inconvenient, holding YOUR hand while your baby is left with no hand to hold, is not the type of help they need.

Sleeping equals separation. To be able to let go, our babies, just like us, need ways to hold on to us while apart. We may kiss our partners goodnight, hold hands, get into a spooning position, or face away from them, safe in the knowledge that they are still there. But illogically we expect our babies and children, who are intrinsically dependant on us, to fall asleep on their own, with nothing to hold on to.

We are so desperate to rush independence, that we forget that babies and children are meant to depend. We fall for this “self-soothing” myth, neglecting the fact that independence is fostered by dependence & attachment, and sleep is dependant on developmental readiness rather than the ability to calm-down with no parental help.

When we ignore the fact that nature is designed to take care of us, we end up doing more harm than good. Telling parents what to do, step by step; being on text all night to tell them what to do should something not go “to plan”, holding their hands through changes that don’t feel right to anyone... takes away their power and are all examples of why parents, as much as babies, don’t need sleep experts.

My goal instead is to put parents back in the driving seat, understanding that they, not me, are the experts. Using attachment knowledge to increase connection, rather than methods & techniques that separate and aim to fix a problem behaviour. Helping them act from insight, not instructions. And providing babies with the ideal conditions that will lead to more sleep, rather than focusing on sleep alone. And this, I can confidently say, is NOT sleep training. This is parenting the way nature intended, albeit with a little outside perspective, practical understanding of how babies & children sleep and a range of ideas that will change how you see your children forever.

¿Te has preguntado cuántas siestas debería tomar tu bebé al día?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Todo depende de la edad, del ambiente donde esté y del comportamiento del bebé. Aunque unos niños necesitan dormir más que otros, así tengan la misma edad, esta tabla puede servirte como referencia acerca de la cantidad de siestas por día y el tiempo que normalmente duermen los bebés y niños.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recuerda, la calidad del sueño de tu bebé no afecta sólo a su salud, sino también al bienestar de toda la familia.👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💤
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Un dato extra: Las siestas de los bebés más importantes son alrededor de las 9 am y a las 12 del mediodía, de 1 hora y media, más o menos, es el sueño más reparador.
