A holistic approach to sleep

Holistic Approach to Sleep

When working with a sleep specialist who takes a holistic approach, you can expect to address so much more than just sleep. Sleep is impacted by a host of other factors that many traditional sleep consultants are not trained to recognize or consider. When I begin working with new families, here are some of the things I look for:

💛Does the child have any symptoms of tethered oral ties?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💚Could something in the breastfeeding parent’s diet, or an ingredient in the formula, be impacting baby?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💜Could baby’s birth experience have created any musculoskeletal issues that need to be addressed to relieve discomfort?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💙Has parental mental health been considered?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❤️ Is there a family history of allergies, sleep apnea, or iron deficiency?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💗Is the child’s daytime nutrition sufficient, and are there any feeding issues to consider?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and finally, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🧡is the child’s sleep schedule appropriate for their age and their temperament?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each individual family and child is unique – without a holistic approach, many of the individual differences are not accounted for and it is nearly impossible to adequately match the right approach to the child.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
