From an actual coaching session:
“My son was little and had stomach issues, so I felt guilty leaving him in the crib. At 8 months, we transitioned him into his own bed, instead of sleeping with us. The next week he got a cold, which brought him back into our bed.
Now he is 2. He won’t get out of our bed.”
So what came next?
“I tried everything. He is so sensitive and wakes so easily. Sometimes he wakes up and just won’t go back to sleep. He goes to bed late, he doesn’t wind down.
My partner loves to wind down using the phone, so now my son wants screens before bed too. If we take it away, he tantrums.
I feel guilty as a mom. But I have to clean, cook, feed the cat, …
There is just so much going on, and I don’t know what to do.”

Oh my sweet friends, I promise you don’t have to feel this way.
And I promise that if your situation is similar, I can support you.
Together, we figured out how to create a bedtime routine that worked for all of them, including the cat.
And that sweet boy was able to get the sleep that he needed.
And so was dad.
And so was mom.
And so can you.
And it doesn’t have to take long.
