6 Signs You Need More Sleep

Is your baby up all night? Or waking constantly? Is “napping” basically a cuddle session that ends the moment you put your baby down in the crib? Are you beginning to think that sleeping through the night is a myth? If so, you might be a sleep deprived parent!

Frankly, sleep deprivation sucks and it's something that we at Detroit Dreams Tonight are on a mission to end.

Here are six signs you need more sleep and should seriously consider hiring us!

  1. You treat your sleeping baby like a bomb about to explode, being careful not to wake her when carefully putting her down in her crib.

  2. Your abs are getting rock solid from bouncing on that damn exercise ball for every nap and every night.

  3. The barista at your local coffee shop not only knows your name, but knows your exact order and the time you’ll come retrieve your caffeine fix each morning.

  4. Sprinting up the stairs to put the pacifier back in your baby’s mouth (again and again and again) is your daily cardio.

  5. You can’t remember the last time you slept even a few hours without interruption. Pre-pregnancy, maybe?!

  6. Your designer crib sits empty each night because your baby loses his mind if he sleeps more than 2 inches away from another warm body.

If you can relate, we can help. You no longer have to read ALL the sleep books or google sleep tips at 2am. Sleep deprivation doesn’t have to be a part of your parenting journey. Your baby is capable of sleeping independently each and every night. If you’re worried your baby will NEVER be a good sleeper, you can benefit from a professional sleep coach guiding you through the process. That’s where we come in! Contact Detroit Dreams Tonight today to schedule a complimentary sleep assessment and to book a live-in sleep package. Make sleepless nights a thing of the past and replace them with healthy, peaceful sleep for your whole family!

Sleep Training Babies in Michigan

After years of supporting families in Southern California, my husband and I made the move to Detroit where I am now setting up shop to provide in-home sleep training support. Upon my arrival I was curious to see if Michigan was any different then California in the way the culture and society deals with the postpartum period. Unfortunately, it seems to be quite similar and it’s clear that many families are struggling.

The months after a baby is born can be an intense period of adjustment full of physical & hormonal changes for the mother, relationship changes for the couple, and severe sleep deprivation. As a postpartum doula and sleep coach, I constantly see families battling this chronic sleep deprivation that often plagues new parents. I see babies with bags under their eyes and parents barely able to cope.

To put it bluntly, I hate that this has become the societal norm and I want so badly to fix it.
