At Mothers Helping Hands Atlanta, we know that getting your newborn on a regular sleep schedule may be difficult. Therefore, our sleep experts can help guide your child to rest 8-12 hours each night without waking up with sleep training. Sleep training teaches your little angels to fall asleep independently, without someone rocking, cuddling, nursing, or shushing them. This training takes practice and patience and isn’t harmful to babies. We may use several training methods that work for your baby and you. Below is a list of the methods that we used:
The child is under 12 weeks: A gentle stretching method. This method may take up to 12 weeks to accomplish if the child is a newborn.
The child is over 12 weeks: Prolonged attention. Involves soothing the child after 5 minutes and continues stretching the time every two times by 5 minutes.
The child is over 12 weeks: Cry it out. Although this may be the most challenging method for the Client, it is also the quickest and most effective. Generally, it will be one hard night, the next night will be easier, and the next night they will sleep through. This type of training may take ten days to 2 weeks.
For the child no longer in the crib: This must be parent-led. We will be present but only to support, encourage, and inform the Client how/what to do.
As a parent, please understand that there will be crying no matter what method is used. However, our job is to form a sleeping pattern so that you, your family, and the baby can get a good night’s sleep. See below for our rates, and feel free to contact us for more information.
