Whether your child has always struggled with sleep or sleep has recently gotten off track, we can work together to make a sleep training plan to not only teach your toddler or older child to fall asleep in their own bed and stay asleep all night, but to also do so with confidence!
at A quick glance
I am confident that by following the sleep plan with consistency, you will have an independent sleeper when we wrap up!
We will be in touch over the phone and /or email to further navigate your child's sleep as you implement the plan.
Once the questionnaire is complete and the call is booked, I will personalize a sleep plan that we'll go through on the call.
Next you will book a 60-90 minute consultation to go over your toddler/older child's sleep plan in detail.
You will then get a questionnaire to fill out about your child's sleep and your family's schedule and goals.
Select which older child sleep package will best support you. You'll then be led to sign a contract and pay the invoice.
"My five year old was never a good sleeper. I was starting to think that waking up several times a night and starting our day at 5 am was just our normal. Until I met and worked with Lauren. She was excellent to work with. She was in touch with me as much as I needed throughout the whole process. My son now sleeps through the night and gets up at a more reasonable time in the morning. He is so proud of himself and he is much happier during the day."

No! The Cry-it-Out method means you lay your little one down, walk away, and no matter what the level of crying is, you stay out of their room until morning. While my sleep training plans do most often involve some level of crying or protesting, I walk parents through a plan to give their child the time and space they need to fall asleep, while also comforting them and supporting them along the way. You can read more about my sleep training (and crying) philosophy here.
I strongly encourage parents to keep their child in a crib until as close to the age of three (or later) if possible, as I've seen quite a few sleep challenges crop up when toddlers transition into an open bed too soon. That being said, I have worked with two and two and a half year olds who are already in open beds, with no way to go back to their crib, and it has worked out. However, I tell parents that they may not see full success as their child is still young for an open bed.
It is absolutely possible for siblings to share a room and both sleep well! The ages of the children and whether or not they are both struggling with sleep will determine how we will carry out the sleep training plan.
Yes! The beauty of technology is that I am able to work with families local to Northern Virginia, as well as those worldwide! All of our interactions are virtual, whether you're local or not.
Or wondering if this is the right fit for your family? Book a (free) discovery call to share more about your newborn and your family's sleep goals and I would love to chat more about what it would look like to work together!

Our 2 year old was just not interested in a full night's rest but Lauren came to the rescue. She gave us a sure fire plan.
We followed the plan and it worked, that simple.
