Parents of newborns may joke about sleep deprivation being a “rite of passage,” but the fact is that many families suffer sleepless nights for months (or even years) – and the toll it takes on the child AND the parents are no laughing matter.
Mom’s whose babies keep them up at night are more likely to suffer from post-partum depression, and they’re three times more likely to be carrying an extra 11 pounds by baby’s first birthday, according to recently published research. Dads suffer too, as the ongoing stress of caring for a growing family leads to disconnect between the parents, and can impact both parents’ performance at work. Plus, studies have recently linked sleep problems in children to a number of behavioral problems and ADHD.
Crystal Duggan, the owner of Precious Dreamers, is a Certified Sleep Sense™ Consultant serving the Halton area. She has gone through an extensive training program with Dana Obleman herself, the creator of The Sleep Sense™ Program. Dana's methods are known worldwide by more than 32,000 families to solve their children’s sleep problems. What differentiates The Sleep Sense™ Program from others is a large focus on the child’s developmental stages and accommodating different parenting styles.
Precious Dreamers' approach is to give you a sleep education so you understand why it is so important for the entire household. Their sleep plans are easy-to-follow and customizable by you, the parent, because no one knows your child better than you. Finally, Crystal will show you how to measure success, what sleeping through the night really is and keep you on track to success.
As an infant and child sleep expert, Crystal feels that tackling the problem early is the most important step in avoiding these issues. Through one-on-one sessions and group seminars, she can help parents develop a customized sleep plan that addresses their family’s specific challenges, using techniques and strategies from The Sleep Sense™ Program.
With help from Precious Dreamers, parents will learn to stop arguing about how to deal with their tired baby or toddler, develop a plan they can implement together, and regain their connection as a couple and a family.
The important thing for families to understand is sleep problems, while very common, don’t have to happen. Babies and toddlers want to sleep and are happier, healthier, and more able to learn when they can do so successfully.
