Infant Sleep Class (Ages newborn - 1 year) | Wednesday, September 25 | 6:30 - 8 am | $40 per family | REGISTER HERE

A two-part sleep class based on the age of your little one.
The first class will address basics of sleep hygiene including sleep science. Jessica will address bedtime routines and rhythms and reasonable expectations of your little one's middle of the night behavior. We will explore how your little one is transitioning from awake to asleep and how you, as parents and caregivers, can support them in learning this important skill. You will take home tangible tools to implement at bedtime and in the middle of the night.

In the second class, we will discuss what is working and how to continue the momentum you've started after implementing the tools learned in the first session. Jessica will address next steps for night time sleep and will get more specific around daytime sleeping and eating. And because there are always curve balls, Jessica will leave you with a few tips on how to deal with those. We hope you feel more empowered and confident in how to best lead your baby to a good night's sleep and you can get some sleep too!
