Signs Your Baby May Need Sleep Support
Rocking, swinging, or nursing/bottle-feeding is his primary method of falling asleep
Has trouble falling asleep and wakes several times throughout the night
Taking short naps or no naps, but clearly needs more daytime sleep
A developmental milestone has caused a sleep regression or you need support when changing sleep routines
Waking up before 6 a.m. but is still exhausted and irritable
Your baby ends up in your bed at some point during the night and neither of you are getting enough rest
IMPORTANCE OF SLEEP
Sleep is just as important to your child’s development and well-being as nutrition and physical activity. The amount and quality of sleep they get impacts their awareness, memory, mood, behavior, and learning abilities. Establishing good sleep practices while your child is young will not only benefit you, it will help them for many years to come.

Meet Our Certified Sleep Coaches
Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny sees the importance of education. All our certified sleep coaches are hand selected and go through a rigorous training program to be sure that only the best of the best are supporting your family. We provide on-going professional development to ensure that our employees are following the latest sleep safety guidelines, soothing techniques, and baby care recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
We’re Sleep Experts
Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny is affiliated with the American Association of Sleep Medicine, the leading voice in the sleep field. The AASM sets standards and promotes excellence in sleep medicine, healthcare, education, and research. It is also the only professional society dedicated exclusively to the medical subspecialty of sleep medicine.
Sleep coaching usually begins when your baby is a minimum of 4-6 months old and once your pediatrician approves it. The signs that indicate that your baby may need sleep coaching are frequent night wakings and a general inability to fall or stay asleep on his/her own. The whole sleep coaching process usually takes between 4-14 days, and promotes healthy sleep habits. This will benefit the whole family.
If your baby has already completed the process of sleep coaching, he/she has acquired an essential life skill that will benefit everyone long-term! Your baby already knows how to fall and stay asleep on his/her own, but the above reasons may cause a temporary regression. In rare cases a refresher with a shorter sleep coaching session can help get your baby back on track. You can try this on your own or a Sleep Consultant from Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny would be happy to help you. We are just a phone call away.
My baby sleeps well in our bed. Should we just let her sleep with us for now?Julie Bacon2020-10-15T18:39:05-04:00
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, bed sharing can be dangerous and even life-threatening to your baby. It is important to have your baby sleep in his/her own bed and establish this routine from the start. This is easier than trying to break the habit of bed sharing later down the line.
Do babies ever regress back to waking at night after sleep coaching is finished?Julie Bacon2020-10-15T18:41:51-04:00
Yes. As babies grow and develop theymay experience some nights with more frequent wakings. Babies may wake more often when they are overtired, teething, sick, experiencing a growth spurt,traveling, or with the introduction of new routines.
Will sleep coaching cause any harm to my baby?Julie Bacon2020-10-15T18:43:29-04:00
No. There is no evidence to suggest that sleep coaching causes any physical or emotional harm to babies. In fact, studies by the American Academy of Pediatrics have shown that sleep plays a fundamental role in child development. Lack of sleep during childhood is associated with physical and mental health problems. Sleep deprivation can also cause major health problems including a weakened immune system later in life.
Does every baby need sleep coaching?Julie Bacon2020-10-15T18:55:47-04:00
No. Many babies do not need sleep coaching. The gradual process of sleep conditioning by your Newborn Care Expert will prepare your baby for a lifetime of sound sleep, without the sleep coaching process. There are some babies, however, who may not show signs of learning to self-soothe through sleep conditioning. They may need a more structured sleep coaching program in order to sleep through the night on their own. If you find your baby waking several times a night or is unable to consistently fall asleep on their own, you may benefit from a sleep consultation to see if coaching is recommended. Most babies who complete our sleep coaching program learn the essential skills of falling and staying asleep on their own quickly. We will help every step of the way!
Will my Newborn Care Expert guide my baby to sleep through the night?Julie Bacon2020-10-15T19:02:34-04:00
Yes. With your pediatrician’s approval, the Newborn Care Experts at Boston Baby Nurse & Nanny are able to gently lengthen the time between feeds overnight to prepare your baby to sleep for longer stretches. This is called sleep conditioning. There are no tears involved and it is a gradual process which often leads to your baby sleeping through the night on his/her own. Remember, every baby is different, and their sleep habits are no exception.
hear from our clients
I wanted to extend my highest praise and sincere gratitude for Anthonina. She was absolutely wonderful and has helped us so much with our sleeping issues and even with nursing protocol (and I have two lactation consultants, have taken breastfeeding classes, and read countless literature). She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. Anthonina is also clearly passionate about all things mothers, babies, and breastfeeding. Lastly, she is also just a really nice woman and a pleasure to talk to. I wished I could take advantage of her expertise more often!

Thanks so much, Bryn – the good news is that Rose is sleeping more through the night…but we’re definitely sad not to be working with you and Kaitlin anymore! You were wonderful to work with from the very beginning – professional, supportive, and prompt in all your communications. Looking forward to having an opportunity to work with Boston Baby Nurse another time in the future!
