An overnight includes, consultation if you choose, monitoring and caring for your baby throughout the night – encouraging healthy sleep habits for mom & baby, a detailed log and notes, as well as follow-up consultation/conversation via phone. This is a great option for a family in need of a good night’s rest, interested in having a tailored sleep plan.
Getting Started: In addition to any details you wish to share, I invite parents to email a log of 2-3 days with their baby to maximize our time throughout any consultations.
It’s helpful if your log includes:
Eating times (nursing-how long? bottles-how many oz?)
Sleep times (how is she falling asleep? where is she sleeping? for how long?)
Activity time (what type of stimulation is she getting? ex. tummy time, out for a walk, visiting friends?)
I also look for regular bowel movements and wet diapers, so please include this as well.
Reviewing the log allows me the chance to understand your baby and lifestyle, and identify relevant topics for discussion.
Questions? Comments? Please contact me. I am happy to address any questions or concerns.
