Baby Care Services

A resource of diverse baby care services and support for parents and caregivers for newborns and young babies.

For Babies and Parents

I offer private consultations to help parents understand and read their babies’ cues, to learn calming and soothing techniques for the fussy, colicky, reflux-y or difficult-to-console baby, to provide breastfeeding support and solutions to challenges, to deal with feeding and sleeping issues and the many other challenges that parents face during the early weeks and months of a newborn’s life. Baby Care Services Whether you have a 34-week old preemie or a full-term baby, I can help you navigate through this vulnerable time and help create a more peaceful, elegant beginning as you transition into parenthood. Please visit the Lactation and Parent Consulting section to find out more about services and fees.

Baby Sleep Training

Have your baby’s sleep habits gotten worse instead of better? Are you exhausted and at a loss of what to do to help your baby learn to sleep all night?Baby Care ServicesOver the years I developed an approach that combines my experience, professional knowledge and proven techniques to pilot parents through countless sleep issues, ensuring their success. Many babies seem to move into good sleep habits on their own, but for those who don’t, an expert coach is a god-send.

Every baby is unique, and every family is unique. I know, as you do, that “one size does not fit all”, so my coaching takes into consideration each family’s distinctive needs and parenting philosophies. Please visit the Lullaby Sleep Training section to find out more about my program and fees.
