Sleep health is a very important aspect of everybody’s life, and can be even more important for new parents. Many parents experience issues getting their baby to sleep through the night, and it can be difficult to figure out where to turn to solve the problem. There is a myriad of online resources and books about baby sleep, but sources often contradict one another, making it difficult to know which solution makes sense for you.
One alternative solution is to hire a sleep consultant who will work with you to create a sleep plan that works for your family and implement sleep techniques to help your baby sleep through the night. But you may be wondering: how do I know if a sleep consultant is the right solution for me?
The truest answer to this question is also the most obvious one: everybody’s situation is different. Some parents see success getting their baby to sleep by reading books and implementing techniques on their own, while others need a more individualized approach that reflects the reality of their own lives. Here are some common signs that a sleep consultant may be a good fit for your situation:
- Your baby is older than 4 months. Sleep struggles before the 4-month mark are common and can be difficult to solve with sleep training.
- Your baby’s sleep is significantly impacting your daily life. While you may think that this is normal, it doesn’t have to be this way!
- You’ve already tried to implement techniques yourself and haven’t seen success. At this point, you may decide that it’s worth it to get expert help and resolve the problem more quickly.
