What About Sleep?
Sleep? It’s the number one treasure new parents are hunting for! What you need is a sleep super hero who gets it. Imagine an expert, someone, with training and experience, who has spent thousands of hours helping babies get back to sleep! Yes, I am talking about overnight doula care. She swoops in at 9pm with her cape, obvi! You tell her about your day, while she sets up for the night. You and your partner are off to the land of nod by 9:30pm, you wake up at 6am, refreshed. Wait, What?! Yup, that is right! She did it all and she did it well, because she is not a brand new parent, running on empty trying to maintain. She is a professional baby whisperer. Your new best friend! Down the stairs, the sun is shining, the baby or babies smiling and you are ready for another day! Because with 8ish hours sleep, you can do ANYTHING! Who is the super hero now?
WOOOOSH! Your postpartum doula rides off in her doula mobile, but you know she will be back. You will sleep AGAIN!
“But when you leave, my baby still won’t be sleeping!”
Bonus: while your overnight doula is there, she is also helping your baby learn some seriously awesome sleep frameworks and patterns. Minimal crying for them, no long wake periods for you. Babies can sleep, and parents should sleep. We will work a plan together that will have your baby making strides in their sleeping within days. Wouldn’t this be the best shower gift EVER?!
