Have you developed super-settling powers, yet?
Are you exhausted by the effort required in putting your baby to sleep?
Is sleep for your 4 - 6 month old, getting harder?
If you've answered yes to any of these questions, you're in the right place. 4 to 6 months is a time of extraordinary developments in your baby's comprehension, motor skills, communication and much more. It's a good thing that warrants curiosity and understanding if we are to avoid getting caught in the web of exhaustion and despair that many parents find themselves in.
In my experience there are always ways of making this stage of development a happier event for everyone. Seeing things from your baby's point of view is always a great place to start.
With this in mind I have compiled this handbook, filled with all the insights I wish I had known when my own babies were this age. Chapters include...
○ Welcome to this age & stage
○ How your baby is changing - the science
○ How your baby might be feeling
○ Why parents worry
○ What about the hazards of over-tiredness?
○ Babies get frustrated too
○ Feeling stuck & touched-out
○ Practical considerations
Rolling & tummy sleeping
Fighting & resisting
○ Let's try a few things
○ What else can we try?
My name is Katie. I am a registered midwife, a certified holistic infant sleep coach and a mum of 4, so I've had my fair share of experience with infant sleep. From guiding exhausted parents via phone, to providing hands on support in their homes, right down to being in the trenches of sleep deprivation with my own children. I remember it well!
I support families during times of troubled sleep with their children, primarily through fostering a deep understanding of their developmental and emotional needs. Our little ones now have growing awareness, capability and stamina; far more so than when they were newborn. They are also like little sponges with an eagerness to learn and some serious FOMO going on!
They have a need to move their bodies and engage in play and exploration, but unfortunately this often conflicts with how and when parents think they should sleep. In the pages of this FREE introductory guide, I will walk you through some vital insights that may help you to see these changes from your baby's point of view.
If you feel that there could be something that you are missing, and perhaps your child is uncomfortable with feeding, reflux, trapped wind or even allergies, I have included a road map for how to go about seeking help and insight from the relevant health professionals, and in what order.
I have also included some easy first steps for exploring more enjoyable ways of falling asleep that do not involve the usual fuss and tussle you have come to dread. Neither do they rely on leaving your baby alone, ignored or without touch or affection. In fact most of my methods include extra touch, extra closeness, extra play and even extra time awake. All of the things that we have traditionally be warned to avoid when it comes to infant sleep.
So, why not let me take you for a walk on the wild side. Download this introductory guide and lets start looking at your baby's sleep with a shift in perspective.
