Research suggests that sleeping problems are the primary cause of concern and frustration in new mothers. Also, it could take several years to identify the root cause of sleeping issues and implement suitable methods to resolve them.
Sleep is an extremely important part of the overall well-being of a baby. Studies indicate that poor sleep could have a negative impact on the emotional, physical, and mental health of the parent and the baby. In fact, the lack of sleep or disturbed sleep has been associated with poor behavior, ADHD, adolescent obesity and several other health disorders in both the child and the mother.
Who is a sleep consultant?
A sleep consultant is someone who works with new parents in a variety of different areas such as sleep techniques, settling methods, creating a healthy routine, switching from cot/crib to bed, safe co-sleeping, and general discipline at home.
Even though parents may try a couple of different sleep training methods, the results could be quite disappointing. Also, parents tend to feel low on energy after a certain point of time because they themselves are sleep deprived. If you’ve reached a point where you’re feeling highly frustrated with the ongoing sleeping problems with your baby, it may be time to seek help from a sleep consultant.
First and foremost, a sleep consultant helps you understand that every infant is different. So, it is a waste of time to compare your baby’s sleep habits with another. A sleep consultant is typically trained in a number of different techniques and can take a more informed decision on which methods work best for your baby. They also take into consideration your comfort level and parenting style while deciding on a technique.
By taking the help of a sleep consultant, you don’t have to waste your precious time and energy in searching for ‘popular’ methods on the Internet or keeping up with guesswork for months.
