Virtual Baby Sleep Consultant in Houston, TX
Hi, I’m Caroline, founder of Bedtime Boss and a certified Sleep Sense™ consultant in The Woodlands, TX. I was once that desperate and exhausted mom, but I came out on the other side. So can you.
In a few short weeks I will coach you through a gentle process that will have your child sleeping through the night, leaving you refreshed, recharged and loving parenthood.
My Journey into Sleep Consulting
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I did my fair share of baby book reading centered on pregnancy and birth. In my mind, that was the hard part, and once baby got here, everything else would fall into place, right?
I thought I lucked out when my daughter started out sleeping five to six hour stretches. She slept wherever I plopped her down for 90 plus minutes, and by three months old was sleeping ten hours at night. I totally lucked out in the baby department (or so I thought). This newborn thing? Easy peasy!
And then it all changed.
Two days shy of my daughter turning four months old I returned to my career in corporate America. It was the worst sleep of my daughter’s life. She woke up four times that night, and I tried everything to console her to get her back to sleep. I became exhausted and overwhelmed as this night circus went on for weeks. Little did I know at the time, my daughter was simply experiencing the four month sleep regression.
The Four Month Sleep Regression
This is the first sleep regression all infants encounter where their brains begin to experience lighter levels of sleep. This results in more night time wake ups.
What I had been doing all along to “help” my daughter sleep, were actually the things that were causing her to wake throughout the night.
The Turning Point
Through some internet searches on “baby sleep” I came across a sleep program that made perfect sense. In less than ten days my daughter was sleeping through the night and going down effortlessly for naps.
I actually felt refreshed when I woke up for the first time in weeks. I could think clearly at work. I could take on new projects, and being a new mom felt fun again.
I have since trained with the creator of the Sleep Sense™ program. This program's methods are used worldwide by more than 100,000 families solve their children's sleep problems.
Today, I get to help moms and dads teach their little ones how to sleep through the night and take age appropriate naps. I help parents who:
Feel hopeless about how to get their newborn adjusted to some semblance of a sleep pattern;
Wake up exhausted wondering if they will ever feel well rested again;
Still sleep in separate rooms because moving baby to his or her own room seems too daunting;
Cajole, rock, and feed their baby throughout the night because there doesn’t seem to be any other solution.
If you’re struggling with your baby’s sleep challenges, please know it doesn’t have to be this way. I’d love to help you find a solution. I love my work as a sleep consultant and I’m thankful for the opportunity to make a tangible difference in my clients’ lives.
Cheers to sleep!
