How do we get babies to sleep without the Cry-It-Out method???
Come to this class and learn the fundamentals of newborn sleep biology: their physiological needs, the natural rhythms that drive them, their development as learning, growing individuals; and how you can support and shape their sleep patterns.
Brain scans of infants show that there is damage and diminished frontal cortex development in babies who are left to cry - it affects them the same way other traumas affect young brains. One day these babies will grow into adults. Studies show that there are many negative, long term effects that these "sleep training fads" like crying it out can cause. Crying it out is not appropriate for newborns and early infants, and perhaps it is never really appropriate for anyone of any age.
In fact, in some fields of psychology, it is considered neglect and borderline abuse. Yet there are many "experts" who still give this advice to exhausted parents - mainly because they don't have any advice that actually works. Our philosophy is to empower parents so they can confidently meet the needs of their babies and by leveling up their skills, the health and well-being of everyone in the home benefits. Compassionate care is not for the faint of heart, but it is what this world needs to heal. Once you have the skills, you can be part of the change for this next generation.
Good sleep isn't just about laying a fed and clean baby in bed and saying goodnight. Newborns and early infants have very different needs and cyclical survival mechanisms that we can work with, rather than fight against. When we understand the ways babies develop into great sleepers, we can help them along the path. This means better sleep, sooner.
You will learn the obstacles and the solutions for issues that newborns and early infants encounter after the sun goes down. You'll also learn best practices for safe sleep and how to incorporate logic and loving consideration when designing baby's sleep environment. Today's science often sounds harsh and cruel when it comes to "making baby sleep safely" and there aren't many ADULTS who could ever sleep under those rules either, so we will unravel the myths, unpack the principles behind those "rules" and help define what works for every individual family's dynamics, while still keeping baby safe and sound.
You'll also learn more about how the rest of the world's babies sleep... This can inform how you approach infant sleep in your own experiences.

Babies are unique little human beings who are learning every waking moment and organizing what they learned, while they zzzzzz. Getting their best possible sleep is super important for their intellectual development. Not to mention, well-rested parents can function at their best as well. Solutions for infant sleep are no longer out of reach.
Sign up for this unique class that takes every aspect of the infant and parent sleep experience into consideration and maps out a clear formula that can be adjusted and tweaked for every baby.
