Consider Your Child’s Unique Temperament

Babies are really one of a kind, so it’s important that we consider that when teaching them independent sleep. Helping parents understand their baby’s unique traits can help to create an understanding as to why certain methods of sleep training are very hard to implement. Since no two babies are the same we do not believe in a one-size fits all approach to sleep, leaving a child to cry for extended periods of time or asking something of you we wouldn’t do with our own children!

Realistic Expectations on Families & Children

At Baby Sleep Goals we take a realistic approach to sleep for not just the child, but we also place realistic expectations on the parents/caregivers. When expectations aren’t realistic it’s pretty easy to only see what isn’t progressing with your child’s sleep habits/patterns, instead of what is! We also reference the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time, you’re on track with your child’s sleep, and the other 20% allows for flexibility. It’s just not realistic to expect families to stay on track with sleep 100% of the time, and we totally understand that! We know that not everyday is going to be perfect, and we strive to take the guesswork out of your family’s sleep struggles in a way that works for everyone!

Passionate & Understanding

As a parent, I know how impactful sleep is to a family. While many families strive to have children that sleep well, we’re not going to make a family uncomfortable to reach a sleep solution. Rest assured I’d never ask a family to do something with their child that I wouldn’t personally do myself. We do not believe in leaving a child to “cry-it-out,” although there will more than likely be some tears throughout the process. Babies communicate by crying, and often protest change. Let’s be honest, most adults don’t like change either, right?! But, we’d all have to agree that sometimes change is necessary in order to see growth/progress. At Baby Sleep Goals, we are very passionate in helping families get back on track to great sleep. We all know a well-rested baby is a happy baby, which ultimately leads to a happy family!

Evidence-Based Strategies

At Baby Sleep Goals we place focus on conducting science-based research, so that we make sure we’re making evidence-based decisions on sleep. As we work together, you’ll learn baby sleep science and obtain a clear understanding as to why certain approaches and recommendations are being provided to you. In addition, we will also prepare you for what’s to come in your child’s development so that we can help you plan for potential sleep challenges that may arise in the future as your child continues to grow and learn new things.

What Other Families Have To Say?

from rested families

Connecting with Juanita was one of the biggest blessings. She is kind, down to earth, relatable and most importantly, compassionate. Her advice has helped cure not just my little one’s naps, but also helped my family overcome multiple night wakings and I’m forever grateful.

I was desperate for more sleep and Juanita just told me what to do so I didn’t have to try to figure it out on my own.  I can see the passion she has for helping babies and mamas get better sleep.

I didn’t think my son was capable of sleeping through the night and I thought I’d be waking up several times throughout the night the rest of my life. I’m happy I found Baby Sleep Goals. We are all getting much better rest and I have more energy than I’ve had in a long time.

Finding Baby Sleep Goals was a dream. I needed help getting my baby to nap better. I spent hours and hours reading and researching what to do. I read several books on how to fix our sleep issues yet nothing worked. Once I had Juanita to answer my questions in real time, everything seemed to fall into place. Now we are more rested and life is simply better.

Frequently Asked Questions

While we don’t focus on formal sleep training with babies 3 months and younger, you can begin setting healthy sleep foundations at birth. It’s important to know that typically children are not ready for longer periods of sleep until they are older, and are developmentally and physically ready. If you’re an expecting mama or have a child that’s younger than 4 months, we can definitely help you get started on the right track with setting healthy sleep foundations. Schedule a call and we can talk in more detail.

No one likes to hear babies cry, especially their own. Tears sometimes are shed during the sleep training/teaching process when a baby’s routine is shifted, and we will be working together to alter what your baby is used to so that we can get your baby on track to better sleep habits. There will more than likely be tears at some point but rest assured that I would never ask you to leave your baby to cry and never return. The good news is, at the end of this journey, your baby will be sleeping well and so will you and your family which will allow for great flexibility in your lives.

With regard to Sweet Sleep Advantage for newborns 0-3 months, this option is all about setting healthy sleep foundations in the newborn stage and bonding with your new baby. We do not conduct formal sleep training for babies 0-3 months. Sweet Sleep Advantage does NOT involve any tears, but will ultimately give you a true advantage to getting your baby set up for great sleep from the very beginning.

YES! Breastfeeding and healthy sleep can definitely work well together! You’ll probably also notice that once you and your baby are well-rested, your breastfeeding relationship may actually improve. It’s important to know that I’ll be here to help you reach your sleep goals regardless of whether your baby is breastfed or formula-fed.

Since there are quite a bit of safety concerns to take into consideration with co-sleeping, I do not work with co-sleeping families that wish to continue co-sleeping and/or bedsharing. However, if you have a safe space for your baby to sleep but share the room with your baby, I can still help you reach your sleep goals.

YES! I work with families with children up to 5 years-old! If you’re interested in services for your older child, take a look at Sweet Sleep VIP. If you have additional questions about our sleep packages, you can schedule a FREE sleep assessment and we can talk more about it.
