Rockabye Rockies is on summer vacation until August! See you then!!
Through education and support I accompany families as they work to establish healthy sleep habits for their children ages 4 months to 6 years old.
Though I am based in Denver, Colorado, I am able to provide my services to families across the country with the help of phone calls, texts, and emails.
When a family hires me, our work together begins with an extensive intake form that is filled out by the parents. The intake paperwork provides me with an overview of each child’s sleep environment, sleep habits, schedule, and other factors that can play a role in how they are sleeping.
I review the intake paperwork prior to our consultation, when we will discuss its contents and the age appropriate sleep needs of the child or children. A plan that suits the family’s style is agreed upon during the consultation and a written copy of that plan is provided within 24-48 hours.
Once the plan is received, I will guide and support the family for as long as requested as the plan is implemented. Through daily sleep log reviews and check-ins we are able to see improvements along the way and make adjustments if needed.
At the end of working together, healthy sleep habits have been learned and established making way for a lifetime of fabulous sleep!
“We are so thankful for Gaby’s help!
We have had trouble with Walter’s sleep since he was 4 months old and we felt like we tried it all. We did the Cry it Out Method, we changed the location of his bed, we changed his bed three times, we took him to the doctor, we had blood tests drawn, we went to the chiropractor, to a massage therapist, we did Epson salt baths and eventually we gave up and slept next to Walter in his bed from nighttime until morning.
After hearing about sleep consultants I was scared we would have to do the “cry it out method” again, but Gaby understood from meeting with us that we were reluctant to take that path and she never even suggested it to us.
Gaby tailored a plan for us and we felt like she had understood our parenting style and where we lacked self-esteem. The sleep plan impressed us a lot! When we started, Gaby checked in with us multiple times per day, we got some tips and advice on how to approach the evening, which was wonderful and so useful.
After just 4-5 days Walter fell asleep by himself and slept through the night! We had never experienced this during his 2.5 years. My husband and I even had time to drink a cup of coffee together in the morning before he woke up!! We could not have been happier!!
During the second week Walter had a little bit of resistance and did not sleep as well. Gaby helped us with this and gave us extra encouragement and support during this time. For me the emotional support was very helpful, as I felt like sleeping through the night was an impossible goal to reach.
It has now been two full weeks and Walter wakes up happy in the mornings (until we met Gaby he woke up crying), he goes to bed by himself (bedtime before could take everywhere from forty min to an hour and forty min) and he also self-soothes during the night and does not need us to come in and soothe him anymore (before he averaged 4-6 wake-ups during the night and needed us to go to bed with him to fall asleep).
Gaby’s help, support and knowledge has been amazing and we are so thankful to finally wake up rested. There is no doubt that Gaby has made us both better parents, better partners and Walter a happier child.”
