Summer's Sleep Secrets
WHAT IS A NEWBORN CARE SPECIALIST?
A newborn care specialist is trained to work nights from bedtime or 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. As a newborn care specialist, we make sure baby is well fed through the night and give instructions to parents for the daytime routine, so when we leave to our next client the baby is sleeping 10-12 hours a night.
In a way think of us as Mary Poppins! We have a carpet bag of tricks and once the client is happy and sleeping, we move on. My clients are always able to contact me as baby ages and we may need to tweak the routine.
WHAT IS A SLEEP CONSULTANT?
As a sleep consultant, I help and adjust daytime and night routines 0-12 months. Is that all you do? No. I will figure out why your child is not sleeping. It could be, food-related or a different environment. Health issues such as reflux and colic, or co-sleeping and you are ready to move the baby to their crib.
A toddler 12-months-5-years can have big adjustments to make. I tend to suggest a more Montessori approach with older children. There are lots of variables when searching out the issues. My goal is to walk through your daily life and see what areas need to be adjusted.
WHAT ABOUT WORKING WITH OLDER CHILDREN 6-12?
I love supporting all ages. We have a lot going on with school and just not getting enough sleep can cause bad grades and acting out in class.
Parents can be very frustrated because they are not getting enough sleep, and everything can be so overwhelming. My goal in this situation is to make sure the whole family is getting sleep. You will have a questionnaire to fill out that will allow me to figure out what needs to be adjusted.
Some are activities before bed, food-related issues, bullying in school, video games etc… things you wouldn’t think would be the problem could be the issue.
WHAT ABOUT TEENAGERS, DO YOU WORK WITH TEENS 13-17?
Yes! absolutely. Teens have a lot of pressure from sports to dating. Grades and keeping up with school work can cause teens to not sleep.
DEPRESSION IN TEENS IS SKYROCKETING
Why? because they’re not getting the required amount of rest they need. The AAP guidelines suggest 8-10 hours a night.
High school is a factor. Our children are required to wake early and catch the bus. Schools are starting too early and teens circadian rhythm is pushing for a later bedtime which does not go with early wake-up.
The national sleep foundation explains the facts:
TEEN SLEEP FACTS:
- Sleep is vital to your well-being, as important as the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat. It can even help you to eat better and manage the stress of being a teen.
- Biological sleep patterns shift toward later times for both sleeping and waking during adolescence — meaning it is natural to not be able to fall asleep before 11:00 pm.
- Teens need about 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night to function best. Most teens do not get enough sleep — one study found that only 15% reported sleeping 8 1/2 hours on school nights.
- Teens tend to have irregular sleep patterns across the week — they typically stay up late and sleep in late on the weekends, which can affect their biological clocks and hurt the quality of their sleep.
- Many teens suffer from treatable sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea.
WHY HIRE A SLEEP CONSULTANT?
When you hire a sleep consultant, we look at the whole picture and see where adjustments need to be made for you and your baby/child/teen. It may take some time. A child over 1-year-old can take 3 weeks to make a new habit.
