Children often show resistance to any changes put in place, and there may be a few tears and slight discomfort as they express and work through their frustration during this process. When you cease the sleep associations the child is used to experiencing at bedtime and during the night; patting, feeding to sleep, rocking, sleeping in your bed and so on then the child will express their frustration.
Every method Chantal recommends is designed to be gentle and minimise crying for your child. Chantal prefers hands-on settling techniques and parental presence as comfort methods. Chantal is committed to children feeling safe, secure and comforted as they go to sleep.
As a mother and certified sleep consultant, Chantal is extremely responsive and intuitive and her vast experience allows her to know how to soothe your child and lull them to sleep.
Children are resilient and parents should remember that through this process they are giving their little one and themselves the best gift possible, the gift of sleep.
