Why Should I Hire a Sleep Consultant?
Updated: Jun 25
The biggest reason why the solutions that work for one parent don’t work for another is simple. They’re not dealing with the same baby.
Do I Need A Sleep Consultant?
“With all of the information that’s readily available online, and the resources you have at your disposal in the form of friends and family who have managed to get their kids to sleep, why would you want to invite a stranger into your home to get your child sleeping through the night?”
And it’s a valid question! After all, your mother managed to get you to sleep at some point. Your friend might have four kids who are all champion sleepers, so she should have some answers for you, right?
Most of the time though, my clients are parents who have already tried asking the friends, family and Google route and found it wasn’t successful, and there are dozens of reasons why that might happen.
Reasons to Hire A Sleep Consultant
In short, sleep is a complicated issue and there’s very rarely one single thing that can remedy the situation overnight.
A professional sleep consultant has the experience and training to recognize which problems result in specific symptoms, and can work with you to develop a personalized plan for your child that addresses those individual issues. They can also provide some much needed support when things don’t seem to be working, and give you the encouragement you need to follow through on that plan until it starts to work.
Consider the example of a personal trainer. You could just get some dumbbells and watch some YouTube videos in order to get in shape, so why pay someone to guide you along? Well, because they’re able to give you solid advice based on education and experience, they can help to keep you motivated and they know how to respond to the problems that might arise when it comes to your specific situation.
So when it comes to baby’s sleep, I hope for everyone to find success on their own, and with as few problems as possible. But if that doesn’t happen for you, a professional consultant has the answers and support you need.
