Your Compassionate Consultant for Pediatric Sleep in Denver!
Kandra was personally chosen to participate in a three-day intensive training program with three months of mentorship from one of the world’s leading child sleep experts. Our methods are aligned with the best practices recommended by The American Academy of Pediatrics.
Continuing education is very important to us and we stay up to date on everything from reflux and infant digestion to safe sleeping practices and of course newborn, baby sleep, and toddler sleep.
Absolutely! We help parents all over the world!
Of COURSE! We are a huge fan of breastfeeding – it’s such a great bonding experience for you both, not to mention the health benefits!
We don’t focus on how you feed your child…just that he’s getting enough to eat and at the right times of day while you’re teaching him to sleep.
No. When families are ready to stop co-sleeping because it’s not working for everyone (you, your partner and your baby), then that’s where we come in to get baby transitioned to the crib in his room. If putting a baby in their own room is just too hard or not an option due to space we can definitely work with room sharing, just not bed sharing.
In a word, no. We couldn’t do that with our children, and we wouldn’t ask you to do something we haven’t done ourselves!
That said, unfortunately, there will be some crying. If there was magic fairy dust to make it a cry free experience, we would gladly share it with you. Here’s the thing, babies are too young to use words and tell you they preferred falling asleep with the bottle (or on you, rocking, in the swing, etc.)
BUT that’s why you have us.
As Denver sleep specialists, we can optimize his schedule and choose the best method for YOUR child to minimize the crying as much as possible.
And you’ll be in the room comforting and teaching him how to do it on his own – so you’re not leaving him alone all night.
Remember that once babies learn how to fall asleep on their own – which can happen pretty quickly – the crying goes away!
We always suggest starting over a long weekend. If you can take off a Friday and your partner can take off a Monday (or you can work from home) – that’s ideal. Having 4 days to follow the plan before handing things over to daycare will help a lot.
If you have a nanny in your home, it isn’t as big of an issue to take time off because presumably, your nanny will follow the plan as you would have.
We will also be giving you tips on working with daycare and how to prep your nanny!
Yes, as long as his symptoms are under control and he’s comfortable.
We’ve worked with lots of babies with reflux and can share some tips and tricks that have worked well for other families.
No. The Rocky Mountain Sleeping Baby policy is to get payment in full at the time of the consultation. We are happy to invoice you in installments prior to our consultation, but again, complete payment must be received by the time we have our consult.
Thursday night works really well for most families! You can get into the groove of your plan before the weekend starts. Friday night is a close second.
A night nurse comes in to provide sleep to the parents through nighttime interaction with your baby. Often, night nurses will do everything possible to get and keep your baby sleeping such as feedings, rocking, bouncing, etc. When the night nurse is done, you are still left with a baby who doesn’t sleep well. Night nannies serve a great purpose but our services just look different.
As sleep consultants, we come in and teach you, the parent, how to teach your child the skills of sleep for the long term. You get to experience the benefits of teaching your child to sleep for years to come!
