Dreaming of sleep?
Feel like you’ve tried everything? Can’t handle the crying?
You’re in the right place, Mama.
Imagine if in just a couple weeks your child had:
sweet and simple bedtimes
longer stretches of night time sleep
restful, predictable nap times
more confidence and adaptability
an improved sense of connection and security
Simultaneously, you get:
time for yourself and your partner in the evenings
uninterrupted nighttime sleep
time to get things done during naps
more confidence in your parenting instincts
clarity around what to do and when to do it
an improved connection with your child
Kids can sleep!
(And babies too - in fact, they’re meant to.)
But sleep is not just a skill. It’s a necessity.
When children sleep they produce growth hormones, memories are retained, muscles are built and repaired, immune systems are bolstered, and their capacity for learning increases.
I’ve worked with hundreds of families, all with their idiosyncrasies and challenges, and I’ve never met a child whose sleep couldn’t be improved.
Supported sleep learning is my jam
If sleep is not currently easy and enjoyable for your child, if she is fighting sleep or waking often, this behaviour is her way of communicating that she is ready for change.
There are 101 ways to change your child’s sleep and I offer a range of responsive methods that take into account your child’s brain development and sleep needs. I am not a proponent of “cry it out” nor do I provide bed-sharing solutions. My methods fall between these two ends of the spectrum, under what I call, supported sleep learning.
Regardless of you’re previous parenting practices, I do not offer judgement, only a way forward to clarity, connection, and rest.
I want to give you:
The facts about how sleep works and children's sleep needs
Explanations for why your child is currently struggling
Strategies and solutions to encourage the changes you'd like to see while supporting your child’s attachment and development
A clear plan for your individual family outlining a gentle and effective path to better sleep
One-on-one support to ensure you reach your goals

“As parents we've gained a new-found sense of confidence and feel better-informed with respect to how to read our baby's behaviours and respond accordingly. We also feel he has increased self-confidence and trust. The only thing that we would have done differently is work with Sierra sooner.” Megan Lake
