Do you have to do Sleep Training? No, not at all. Everyones goal should be to set up sleep success from the start. This way your little one creates healthy sleep habits on their own and gradually sleeps through the night around 3 months. You’re the parent, and you know what is best for your family. Don’t ever feel pressured into doing a certain sleep training or method you are not comfortable with. Every family has different needs, and that is why each sleep training is catered to your families individual needs.
Is your baby meeting the markers to start Sleep Training?
Every agency and doctor has different recommendations for Sleep Training ages. Please do your research and start when you are comfortable with the age requirements. Some recommendations start at 3 weeks, we start at 3 months (meeting other requirements, to be continued), and some start at 6 months of age. There is no right or wrong answer. It’s what your family agrees on and feels comfortable with.
Weighing 10-12 pounds. 10-12 pounds shows us a healthy weight for them to do 10-12 hours stretches.
Eating 25-32 ounces in the daytime. If your little one is really close to 25 ounces, we can add in a dream feed to help them get the required ounces in the day time.
Now the Tips
I know you’re busy so lets get right to it.
You need a dark room. Black out curtains, cover the camera light, light from the hallway peeking through, it all triggers their little brains when they wake up.
White noise on a healthy level, no higher than 60 DB. You can download an app to confirm it is at a safe level. White noise machines are not monitored safely by the creators. They can go up to levels of 120DB. This recreates the womb noise and can help keep outside noise from disturbing them .
Cluster feed before bedtime. Fill those little tummies up to help give them long stretches.
Bedtime routine of 7-8 things every night, at the same time.

Being a new mom comes with a few difficulties, it’s even harder when you already have kids, and you just had a new baby. No matter how much practice you have had with the ‘mom thing’, you cannot cheat nature, you will eventually get tired. You have to wake up in the morning to make sure the other kids are prepped and ready to go to school, you also have to make sure that they do their homework when they get back home. Oh! There is laundry. And just in case you think you have all of the above covered, there is also the part of having all your kids talk to you at the same time, and you have to be actively involved in this conversation because you are ‘mom’.
When you look at all of these, the idea of having yet another kid might begin to sound scary, and this is why you need a Doula. Someone who will take care of your baby when you have to tend to the rest of the children, and even when you are asleep.
Here are a few reasons why you need a Doula.
Its exhausting when your newborn needs to be fed every 2-3 hours. But you have to get up anyway, whether you feel like it, or not. This is where a Doula comes in, you need all the rest you can get if you are going to resume mom duties with the rest of your children by morning. The Doula tends to your baby, while you sleep, this way, you can wake up very early, ready and agile enough to start your activities for the day.
You need your head in the right place:
When you have to tend to the baby and the rest of the kids all by yourself, your mind is often all over the place. You are listening to Brian chatter about a new teacher at school, you are helping Natasha with her homework, and then the baby starts crying; you immediately run from them to go check why the baby is crying, and then you run back to continue from where you stopped. This will distort your thought process and coupled with the sleepless nights, you just might end up with a bad headache eventually.
At Night Owl Nanny Care, we provide overnight care for your baby. While you grab that beauty sleep and allow your mind and body to rest, we do the job of staying awake and making sure your baby is well tended to. Thus giving you the chance to wake up strong, agile and ready for the day.
We understand how hard it is for you to juggle ‘mom’ duties and ‘new mom’ duties at the same time, so we help with the ‘new mom’ duties, which includes all the activities concerning the newborn.
If you need a nanny or a Doula to take care of your newborn while you catch a much needed snooze, we have got the right nannies to handle the night mom duties in more ways than one.
Your night nanny will feed, burp, and snuggle baby back to sleep. They will tend to your babies cries. Your night nurse will change diapers and take out dirty diaper pales. Rock, swaddle and assist you with any extra hands you may need overnight.
Night Nanny chores
A night nanny will do anything baby and mommy related. Baby laundry, cleaning and sterilizing bottles/pump equipment, and tidy nursery. Restock the nursery and changing station. Night nannies will get you water, tea, or snack while you breastfeed or pump. If you have a special request, just talk to your doula or newborn care specialist about your overnight needs.
Your night nurse also sleeps. If baby is cared for, chores are complete, your doula or NBCS will rest while baby is resting. Studies show resting while baby rest not only helps baby sleep better, but also helps your night nanny to perform and exceed at their nightly duties.
Let us help you find the perfect Night Nanny for your family. We have a great team of Doulas and Newborn Care Specialist. Everyone is a Sleep Trainer with years of experience.

We have 3 requirements when starting a sleep training. First, you need to be mentally prepared and ready to stick with a few simple adjustments. Mom, Dad, grandma, and nanny all need to be on board to have a successful training. Ready? Check that your baby meets these 3 requirements and lets start sleeping.
Your baby needs to weigh at least 10-12 pounds. We want to make sure they are healthy with weight gain to cut off night feedings.
24-32 ounces in a day is required to start the process. If they have one night feeding that equals 30 ounces total for their 24 hour period, then we can get started. We want to conclude baby is eating enough in the day to cut feedings at night.
Your baby needs to be at least 3 months old adjusted.
Does your baby meet these requirements? Call to get started. We Sleep Train worldwide.
Sleep Training simply means we educate the family and help the infant sleep through the night. We have different methods, nursery techniques, and bed time routine suggestions to make sleeping easier on everyone. Every training is specific to your families needs. We don’t train off one Sleep Training method. We specialize and cater to what your infant and family need.
Is there crying involved?
Babies cry, its 100% normal. Its their way of communicating. Does your training have to involve crying? No, not at all. We see quicker results with a little bit of crying, but we can train without any tears.
My baby doesn’t nap in the daytime, does my Sleep Trainer help with daytime naps?
Absolutely. Your daytime schedule is just as important as your night time schedule. We assess all aspects of routine, schedule, nursery and families wishes.
What can I expect when they come to my home?
They arrive one hour before bedtime. Meet baby, walk through the process, tweak accordingly, monitor bedtime routine, you go to bed and the magic begins. 3 nights is usually all we need.
We start with a nursery and bedtime assessment. We analyze the situation and adjust the routine and bedroom as needed. We go over the process, educate the parents, and confirm our Sleep Training strategy with the family.
How long does it take?
Most Sleep Training cases only take 3 quick nights. Every toddler is different, and every home has different night time issues. We cater each training to your child’s unique needs. Most families see success at 3 nights, but it may take a few more nights pending on your child’s night time struggles.
How soon can we start?
We can usually get you started within two weeks. Please be patient if it takes a bit longer. We are worth the wait. If you’d like to start booking your Sleep Trainer interviews, please fill out the Parent Application
We have a $100 application fee that locks in your spot and gets you next in line for our Sleep Training.
