The Happy Sleeper class for babies 0-4 months
Set your young baby on the path to good sleep
*This class is no longer available to new enrollees. Please refer to the 4-24 month package.
This class explains the techniques in chapter 3 of The Happy Sleeper, and is designed to give parents specific tools to gradually step back and allow babies to practice emerging self-soothing skills. We call this the “curious stance” and the good news is, it really works! Our favorite thing is teaching this way of thinking about young babies, because we are following their natural, developmental path. We don’t expect babies this young to “sleep through the night,” but we do see their skills unfold and sleep improve. This class covers,
- Your baby’s sleep timeline – what to expect
- Choosing a bedtime and bedtime routines
- The ideal sleep environment
- Self soothing and The Soothing Ladder method
- Naps and the 90 minute Awake Window
- The 4 month sleep regression
- Breast or bottle feeding and sleep
You will leave this class understanding how to follow your baby’s natural self-soothing abilities.
*The material covered in this class mirrors the techniques in The Happy Sleeper book. The content of the class does not go beyond the scope of the book (which is a 300-page comprehensive guide!) Many parents do find it helpful, however, to have the book as a resource and also watch the class to see the authors review and explain the material.
