Amanda believes that the sleep process is a natural function of the human body that does not need to be taught or trained. She focuses on finding the aspects that are interfering with your child’s body’s natural rhythms, homeostasis and often lifestyle to support sleep .

The Groovy Babies approach to sleep education is unique – working with families during all stages from pregnancy, newborns to age 5, develop healthy sleep habits that are age and developmentally appropriate.
Amanda is a Holistic Pregnancy and Child Sleep Specialist that will tailor a sleep service plan to each family’s needs and goals, then provide a personalized sleep solutions plan that parents are comfortable implementing.
She will provide you with practical strategies for establishing a consistent schedule and clear cues that tell your child’s body when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to be awake.
Working together we design a schedule that fits “YOUR UNIQUE” family- be it 1 child, 2 children OR 3!!
Although Amanda prefers a gentle approach to sleep solutions, whatever your parenting style she works with it, to find an approach that feels right for you and your child.
Our ApproachTraditional sleep learning can be a challenge and hard for both parents and child.
Groovy Babies offers a NEW approach that acknowledges and respects both child and parent’s emotions, and emotional well being in relation to the sleep work process.
Amanda states “When working with families my aim is to empower parents, help you understand the underlying roots of any sleeping problems, crying and settling behaviors, then provide you with the understanding, education and tools you need to work towards improving your child’s sleep and “BRING A PEACEFUL NIGHTS SLEEP” back to your home”.
Amanda will assess all aspects of your baby’s daily life to determine why you are experiencing challenges with your baby or child’s sleep. Many elements affect the sleep process (previous settling habits, schedule, household dynamics, mother and baby’s health, nutrition, day naps, and environment).
Working together, she will help you understand how to optimize your baby’s routine to create restorative sleep for the entire family.View Sleep Packages

Why Can’t I Figure This Out on my Own?
You may well be able to! However, my clients, who are from all areas of life and are masters of their own crafts, but when it comes to helping their own young children develop good sleep habits, they are stumped, confused, anxious or just exhausted. Many have older children and feel torn.
There are dozens of useful books on the subject of infant/toddler sleep, most describe their own processes and methodologies and how they fit the general population. A one sized fits all approach.
As parent’s we read or google several sleep settling books, chat with family friends or Facebook, which can confuse us more. Other times parents choose the concepts they like from several different methods, “try” it for a day or two, but those elements are not always complementary to one another, or to your child.
The bottom line is that many parents are exhausted and too weary to try and figure it out on their own. Trying to sort out all the variables can be overwhelming, especially when you haven’t slept well in some time.
Groovy Babies through careful assessment unravels the puzzle, and working together we put those pieces back together in the right order for your family.
