I know you’re tired, How do I know? You are on the Starlight Sleep Consulting website.

No one ever really understands how tiring having a baby is until they’ve experienced it. It comes from working both day shift and night shift with bits and pieces of sleep scattered throughout. I’ve been there, done that, got the bags under my eyes. For my first little one, I read books on sleep and come three to four months in, things improved. But, along came number two, leaving little or no time to read and a busy two and a half-year-old buzzing around, I needed MORE sleep! I called a sleep consultant and was given some great tips and a plan. My life was so changed that I decided that I want to help other tired babies, toddlers and caregivers! I started a course, got oodles of volunteer clients and got here…ready to help you! I know the patience it takes to make changes and how hard it is when you are already sleep deprived; and I have both the patience and support needed to help you.

The Process

The Questionnaire

You will receive a questionnaire to complete that will help me to get to know more about you and your child. There are no two parents or children the same.

Custom plan

Then I create a custom plan to get your little one sleeping better and, by default, YOU. This plan will inform you about why sleep is the way it is and why the steps we’re about to undertake will be a game changer! Knowledge is power, so you are more likely to carry out the plan if you understand WHY!

action

Once the plan is in your hands, it is time for action. Consistency and patience are key with your little ones...they thrive on it!

Support

I am with you along the way to answer questions, steer you in the right direction and troubleshoot. Support in putting the plan into Action is by: e-mail, text, phone, Skype or Facetime. This phase is a two-way street to keep information and the Plan moving forward. You may be asked to complete a journal to give me more insight into your progress.

What Parents Say

Sleep is a basic human necessity! Without it we make more mistakes, have difficulty controlling emotions, impaired cognitive function, daytime sleepiness, clumsiness and weight fluctuations. This is true for adults and children. Although having children can alter our normal sleep patterns when they are quite small, this is not something that should be sustained for a period of time. As long as a child has a clean bill of health they should be able to start establishing a regular sleep pattern between 3-4 months.

The great thing about my training is that I had trained in over 7 age appropriate techniques, from cry it out, to gentle parent present techniques. I collaborate with parents to find out their parenting style and what might work best for their little one. Some families are given a few options to choose from, depending on the issue at hand and the age of the little one. There is no point giving a family a technique to use if the are not going to be able to stick with it.

What works for a three month old will not work for a four year old. There are no two adults or children alike, and they must be treated as individuals.

It really depends on what method you choose, your child’s temperament, how ingrained the habits are, and how much you’ve tried in the past. It is not uncommon to see improvements within a few nights, but you should be prepared to be totally consistent with the plan for at least two weeks.

I am a Certified Infant and Toddler Sleep Consultant and Registered Respiratory Therapist. When I was off on maternity leave with my second child I took a 6 month training program through Baby Sleep consultant New Zealand. It was a great evidence based training program with one on one coaching, and practical experience working with 16 volunteer families to become certified.

Certainly! I will post on my Facebook group any upcoming talks, if you are interested in having me speak to a group in your organization or privately for your family and friends, please send me an email to set up a talk.

Yes, a couple of times a year there will be promotions posted on the Facebook page. If you don't have Facebook, be sure to ask.
