029: Sleep Tool #4 - The Method
23:53

Our 4th sleep tool is choosing the method - the way we can finally break any final sleep associations, and wean out and final night feeds. You may be asking yourself, why are we only including this sleep tool now and it’s important to understand that while it’s often the first or only thing we think about when deciding to sleep train, the method is actually the smallest piece of the sleep training puzzle therefore we spend less time talking about it. It’s important to understand that we need to also apply the first 3 sleep tools, often just by doing this we can improve your child’s sleep, and if all you are doing is creating a sleep training plan with just choosing a method it’s not going to work.

In choosing a plan you must be comfortable with following it so that you can be consistent. Sleep Expert Alanna McGinn shares different sleep training methods that you can choose to include in your baby’s sleep plan.

028: Daycare Sleep
21:40

The struggle between parents, providers, and a child’s sleep is an ongoing one. One that Sleep Expert Alanna McGinn hear’s from both sides and one that doesn’t need to happen. To help keep your baby or toddler on a regular sleep routine everyone needs to be on board, and that doesn’t just mean mom and dad. Childcare providers must also be aware of your usual routine, and attempt to maintain it as much as possible. This can be a struggle for both the parent and the provider and communication around these key issues is essential when working together to ensure your child is getting enough sleep. It’s important to have some common understanding early on and develop a shared game plan.

023: The Two to One Nap Transition
17:30

The two to one nap transition. For some it means being able to be more active with baby and suddenly you have a whole morning to book more playdates and activities. For others the day can feel pretty long with each of you counting down to nap time so that you can get some work done, fold some laundry, or just sit and do nothing. You may even be feeling a mixture of the two. Sleep Expert, Alanna McGinn explains how the two to one nap transition can be a big transition for you and your baby and it’s important to go in to this nap drop with a plan and a whole lot of consistency in place.

019: Stop Taking Sleep for Granted
36:56

It’s the start of the new year and all we see are posts on social media on the new diets that will be tried, the best cleanse to start, or how you all joined a gym, that you’ll likely never go to. We never see the posts about – I’m going to go to bed earlier, or I’m really going to aim on getting regular 7-8 hours of sleep each night. We spend one third of our lives sleeping yet many of us take the need to sleep for granted, and in today’s 24/7 society we are becoming a chronically sleep deprived one.

In today’s episode Sleep Expert Alanna McGinn will be talking about how to help YOU sleep better. She’ll explain to you why you need to focus on your sleep health this year and how you can do it.
