The benefits of sleep training are endless! However, not everyone is ready to make change in baby's sleep. Change is hard, and especially for a few specific people in your child's life.

Congratulations! You made it!! A baby's first birthday isn't for them...but you! You survived!! Time to celebrate! I have always thought the time between 10-14 months is the most fun!

It's my favorite time of year!!! School supplies in the Target Dollar Section! Back to school is SO much fun, and I know you're all craving getting back into routines and expectations.

As expecting moms you have so many things to prepare for, and one often overlooked aspect is how YOU want to bring baby into the world. Join the conversation I have with Kristy Rodriguez, author and HypnoBirthing educator at Pure Nurture, as I dig into what HypnoBirthing is...and is not!!

Waking up between 4-6am is the most common (and most frustrating) problem my clients experience! And guess what? I actually expect this problem to arise once your child learns to consistently sleep 11-12 hours. So how do we fix it? In this episode I'm sharing strategies to solve your child's early morning wakes by sharing two case studies from former clients.
I've coached many families through adding nightlights and helping an older child become confident in sleep. But it wasn't until my OWN daughter where I put these practices into play personally. In this episode I'm walking you through: 1. When to introduce a nightlight 2. Why you should avoid a nightlight if your child isn't old enough 3. How to prepare your child for a nightlight 4. My favorite nightlight & why!
It's the day NO ONE wants to come: time to say goodbye to the nap! Personally, I dreaded the nap drop but it's now turned into a fun opportunity to watch my daughter increase her independent play skills...and sometimes sneak off for midday dates just the 2 of us!! In this episode I'm talking through WHEN it's time to drop the nap, HOW to do it, WHAT to do instead of napping and WHY you might need to keep that nap.
Wondering when it's time to make the change from 3 to 2 naps? Or take the leap from 2 to 1 nap? I hear from my clients all the time, "Becca! Give me a schedule!" or "Is it the right time to go down to one nap?" On today's episode I'm laying it all out for you! How to handle the transition from 3 to 2 naps and 2 to 1 nap.
