“I have been struggling with my 2.5 year old daughter’s sleep for two years. Every time I thought I had a good routine down, she would change it up and her sleep went down the drain. My daughter had always been a poor sleeper, or so I thought. I was waking up every 30 min until she was about 1 years old. Then it was every 1 hour. Eventually we worked our way up to only waking up 3-4 times a night. I got use to this and thought this was just going to be the way it was. My daughter soon got use to me rocking her for 2 hours in order for her to go down for bedtime and nap time. When she woke up in the night I had to rock her for another hour. Being a full time Kindergarten teacher and mother, as well as expecting our second child I couldn’t do it any longer. I was burnt out and exhausted. My anxiety was increasing and I was no longer liking the person I was becoming. So my husband and I decided it was finally time to use Char and her sleep training business. It was a 3 week program for a toddler and it changed our lives. I had already seen a huge change in a short week. We started the program at the end of January and my daughter is still going down on her own and waking up maybe once to go to the bathroom in the night but, goes straight to bed within minutes again. It was amazing to see this sleep transformation and working with Char was a pleasure. No judgement was given and support was there each struggle we encountered. My family is very grateful and forever changed. We are all happier. No more stress or anxiety leading up to bedtime. I get a chance to finally rest, and enjoy my evening. I feel more prepared for a second child. I thank God everyday for the sleep Char has given my family! Best money I spent! My husband and I agreed that we will use Char for our second right away.” - Nicole

“We just finished our Sleep Program with Char and my only regret is that I didn't reach out for help sooner. My daughter had never really slept through the entire night but we'd reached a plateau we were at least surviving at. But shortly after she turned 2 things somehow went completely out the window and naps and bedtime became an absolute nightmare, she was waking constantly and up for an hour at times crying and fighting sleep and would only settle down after we gave up and let her in our bed. Nobody was getting near enough sleep, my daughter was mean and cranky and I felt like I was losing my mind. I reached out for tips or help on facebook and Char was recommended and then she even reached out to me herself. We had a consultation call and having someone understand my struggle and know how to help my family made it a no-brainer to hire her. To my amazement, my daughter began to show improvement and response to the program in just a few days. Though toddlers can take longer than babies to reach parent's goals, having the support and daily contact with someone monitoring our progress and making tweaks as necessary made everything so much easier on us and took away so much stress. We had reached a point of exhaustion that we literally couldn't think around the issue anymore, and Char was there to do the thinking for us. When we started, my daughter would flip out and scream and cry when we tried to put her in her crib for naps and bedtime, and would no longer self-soothe. Her naps were too short and she was waking constantly in the night for long periods of time and was up for the day way to early. She now gets in to her bed happily and no longer cries when we leave the room, and settles to sleep in minutes. She is down to only one brief night wake which she settles herself back to sleep from and I know it will disappear soon like the others, as she's even had nights with any wakings. She is so much happier during the day and she even eats better at meal times. She is tired at exactly when I put her down for naps and bedtime and it just the most incredible thing. We're all so much better rested and in such a good place now, we're so grateful to Char for all her help and support!” - Jasmine

*If your toddler is under 2.5, we need them back in a crib. Developmentally, they are not capable of understanding the freedom that comes with the toddler bed. Even if your child has already been introduced to a toddler bed…we have to put them back in the crib. I know it’s not ideal, but I hope you understand that it will create so much frustration for you and your child if we try to get them to sleep well in a bed. Once sleep skills are stable and after 2.5 years old then we can have a smooth transition.
Is this going to be "cry it out"?
It is completely normal to be anxious about crying. I wish with my whole heart that there was a solution that resulted in zero crying. Teaching your child to sleep well will most likely involve some amount of protest on the child’s part. Crying is your child’s way of protesting change, and you can expect that making changes to their sleep habits will result in some protest. Crying is their only form of communicating. Change does not always come easy. We do everything we can to minimize the crying and set your child up for success. And most parents report that night one went better than they expected! “Cry it out” is referred to as the extinction technique. This is there you put them down, leave the room and don’t return until morning. This is not included in the program. The techniques I have here are gentle and supportive.
It is also good news that the crying is usually short lived and after a few days into the plan, the crying starts to disappear as the child starts to develop a strategy on how to fall asleep and feels more comfortable and confident in their sleep abilities. If you don’t commit to a plan and are trying different things every day, there is going to be more crying over all then when we stick with a plan.
The guide contains evidence and research based knowledge so you can feel confident in mastering every aspect of your child’s sleep.
I’m Char Broughton
I was in your shoes once. My first did not sleep unless she was on me or nursing. My late night internet searches were not helping with all the conflicting information. I was completely overwhelmed with how much information there was. It got to the point where she was up every single hour all night long. I reached my breaking point. I hired a sleep consultant when she was 12 weeks old. We had tremendous success. I couldn’t have been happier to finally get some rest. Having a baby that slept set the tone for my parenting journey. Babysitter, no problem. Sleepover and grandmas house, piece of cake. Camping? Most definitely. We could confidently put her down anywhere. She was 5 months old when we started camping that first summer. We would put her down and right back out to the campfire to socialize. I wouldn’t trade anything for my zest and joy for motherhood that sleep has given me.
I created these programs to bridge the financial gap so all families that need help can have it. You don’t have to wait! You can start now! This age group can definitely be sleeping well and they need to be. I hear all the time, “Are they ready, Are they too young? Can I be helped? Are they too far gone?” I can assure you they are ready to learn to sleep. I want you to feel your best so you can be the best mom you want to be and know your baby is getting the sleep they need to grow and thrive.
Are you ready? I'm right here with you.
