I will NEVER forget the day that my second son, who was under the age of 2 at the time, jumping out of his crib! He was sleep trained at a young age, and was sleeping perfectly fine. But one early morning all of a sudden I heard a loud thump (we had wooden floors then). Of course, we tried to put him back in, but he kept jumping out and so that’s when we transitioned him into a bed.   But if you have a little one who hasn’t fully jumped out yet, there’s hope! If your baby is jus lifting a leg, or at least seems interested in doing so, then you are at the right place! So what do you do wh ..read more

But that’s not true! While sleep patterns are disrupted and regressions happen a quite a lot those first couple of years, you can still make sure sleep is intact and it doesn’t all fall apart!

We all know that the toddler stage can be tough. Fun, but tough. Kids at this age and stage really start becoming little humans. They’re growing and learning so much. Soaking every little detail in, all their experiences throughout the day. While they’re trying to go about their day and foster their independence. They’re also seeking direction, guidance, and love and support from us. So they’re basically trying to be little humans, but they obviously can’t do it on their own. So they look to us, their parents, their caregivers, to help guide them to direct them in the right way. They need our ..read more

Are you rocking, holding, feeding, bouncing or assisting your child to sleep? Is your baby falling asleep with your help? Are you putting your baby down asleep in her crib? If so, then you have created a sleep crutch and now she can’t put herself to sleep. Sleep training or coaching is the act of behaviorally teaching your child how to put themselves to sleep and back to sleep on their own. It’s when you remove sleep crutches and teach the independent skill of self-soothing and putting yourself to sleep.  So how do you remove those sleep crutches? How do you teach your child the independ ..read more

Why Does My Child Take Short Naps?
Luli Sleep Consulting
by Jessica Sawicki

Putting your little one down to take a nap, only to have her wake up 30 minutes later, can be very frustrating! Our babies don’t get the amount of sleep they need, and as parents we start worrying. Catnaps are naps that are anything less than 45 minutes. They are not considered restorative sleep, as she only stays in the “light sleep” part and doesn’t really enter the “deep sleep” phase. While she’ll wake up and seem like she’s ready to go on about her day, the nap didn’t allow her to fully rest and get the amount of sleep she needs.   What can cause a short nap? Age: Day sleep doesn’t ..read more

Swaddling Your Newborn
Luli Sleep Consulting

Swaddling is a popular term heard when you have a newborn.  I mean swaddling is even done from day 1, in the hospital when they are wrapped tightly like a burrito. It’s most commonly suggested as a means to calm your newborn. When you swaddle your little one, you are tightly wrapping her in a blanket, with arms in, to restrict the sudden movement of her arms and legs. It helps avoid the Moro reflex (startle reflex) from waking her up. The idea with the swaddle is to help re-recreate the feeling of being in the womb; all warm and tight. It’s suggested to not only help calm your baby but al ..read more
