Sleep Solutions for Toddlers & Preschoolers
Who I Am
Hello, I’m Karen Winter, a certified pediatric sleep consultant, and the driving force behind Winter Slumber. My passion and expertise lie in helping families with toddlers and preschoolers establish healthy sleep habits.
What I Do
At Winter Slumber, I specialize in offering personalized guidance, support, and strategies crafted specifically for children in the 2-7 age range. I help toddlers and preschoolers learn to confidently sleep in their own beds all night so they and their parents feel well-rested while maintaining a strong connection.
“My mission is to build connections, instill confidence, and establish a consistent foundation to promote well-rested families. I understand that each family and child is unique, with their own set of circumstances and preferences. That’s why I collaborate closely with families to create a sleep plan that aligns perfectly with their specific needs and the age group of their child. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach here. I wholeheartedly embrace the idea of approaching each family and child as distinct individuals, acknowledging their unique traits, and crafting a tailor-made sleep plan to ensure everyone enjoys the restful nights they deserve.”
Why Prioritize Healthy Sleep?
Quality sleep is truly transformative. It’s not just a necessity; it’s the foundation of physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Just as adults experience irritability, depression, and memory issues when sleep-deprived, children face their own set of challenges when they don’t get enough rest. These challenges may manifest as behavioral difficulties, coordination problems, and lowered immunity. The importance of sleep cannot be overstated – it’s the key to a happier, healthier family.
Sleep Training for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Sleep training for toddlers and preschoolers often requires a different approach compared to strategies used with infants. You’re navigating bedtime battles, stalling tactics, intense emotions, and, in many cases, the “need” of your presence until they fall asleep and when they wake during the night. It’s undoubtedly exhausting, but here’s the reassuring truth: it’s never too late to establish (or reestablish) healthy sleep habits.
As a seasoned expert in sleep training for children in this age group, I fully understand the unique challenges you’re facing. My approach involves tailoring strategies to your child’s stage of development and your family’s specific circumstances. The ultimate goal is to empower your child to sleep independently while offering the support and comfort they require every step of the way.
Imagine the joy of helping your toddler or preschooler achieve restful, independent sleep, granting you the full night’s rest you deserve. Envision the relief of having a happier, more balanced child and the freedom to tackle your to-do list or indulge in some well-deserved relaxation while your little one sleeps soundly in their own bed. It’s all within reach, and I’m here to guide you through this journey.”
