Baby Routine AssistanceCreating a happy, healthy baby routine.
I just wish I had gotten Kimi sooner! She came in to help with our 12 week old who would not nap, had sporadic night patterns, and wouldn’t take a bottle. Following Kimi’s baby routine recommendations, suggested schedules and techniques, along with her overnight help has changed our lives. All three of us are happier and healthier because of Kimi.~Lindsey, Mother to London
I don’t necessarily believe in rigidly scheduling a baby, I believe that there needs to be flexibility as babies can be very unpredictable. But without a doubt, babies thrive on routines. Babies like to know what to expect and they do not like surprises! If every day is different, every naptime is in a different location at a different time, feedings are erratic and chaotic, then a baby may become overstimulated, stressed, overtired, and just miserable! My baby routine services are designed to help you decide if and when you should start a routine with your baby, or if your current routine needs a tune-up.
There are various ways I can assist with your baby routine, find one that best suits your needs!
Phone and Email Consultations
3 Day Daily Routine:
Are you having trouble with one specific area of your child’s daily routine? Do you want to have your questions answered, but want to implement on your own? My 3 day email package is just enough support:
- Review of your intake form
- An initial day of emailing with me (typically 3-4 emails during email hours) where you will be given strategies to help you with your specific routine need. Follow up questions and suggestions are offered. You will feel confident implementing changes on your own at the end of the day.
- 2 additional days of email exchanges (3 per day) to check in with me within a 2 week period. This gives you time to ask questions, makes changes, see progress, and refine what you are doing as it fits into your schedule.
- Get guided support as you make changes.
- Best package for scheduling naps or nap transitions, making the move from a crib to bed, preparing for travel.
- Better sleep for your family!
Baby Routine Phone/Skype Sessions:
Are you looking for more personalized support as you help work through your child’s patterns? Do you have more than one sleep issue that needs to be resolved? My phone consultations are designed with this in mind. Here’s what you receive:
