Sleep Coaching FAQs

What’s the best age to sleep coach my baby? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics; "Babies do not have regular sleep cycles until about 6 months of age. While newborns sleep about 16 to 17 hours per day, they may only sleep 1 or 2 hours at a time. As babies get older, they need less sleep. However, different babies have different sleep needs. It is normal for a 6-month-old to wake up during the night but go back to sleep after a few minutes." In my opinion, you can begin Sleep Shaping your child from newborn to 6 months. At around 6 to 9 months, after your pediatrician tells you that your child is ready, you can begin sleep coaching.

What sleep training method do you use? In this course we will explain 5 different types of sleep coaching methods and how to implement them. You can then decide which one will better fit your child's temperament.

My name is Rebecca Kammerer. I am a certified pediatric sleep coach and certified parent coach, as well as a writer, public speaker, and savior of a sleep deprived childhood, devoted to the pursuit of healthy sleep, for all families that work with me. I remember the early days of being a new parent. I would refer to myself as, "The Bear". I could barleyfunction, I looked like a grumpy ole' bear and I would growl at everyone, especially my husband. I recall how I would wake from the (very little) slumber that I did get, feeling angry. I would feel awful. I did not know how I was going to make it through the day. I later learned that sleep deprivation is use as a form of torture. That's when I knew that I needed help getting sleep.

My background of work and study has greatly revolved around children, most importantly caring for children. I studied psychology at SUNY Purchase. I was fortunate enough to be invited to sit-in on the Post Master's Training Program in Parent Education and Parent Guidance at Adelphi University. I am a certified Parent Coach, trained through, the Talaris Institute. I owned my own Family Child Care center and I was a live-in/out nanny for over 14 years. I been in the pediatric sleep business for 6 years and recognize you are searching for answers. I have been personally trained and certified by "The Sleep Lady", Kim West as a Gentle Sleep Coach. I help parents learn how to "Create Healthy Sleep Habits."

Most recently my studies have been based on “maternal depression and sleep training”. What I learned is how the attachment process between the primary caregiver and child, can be negatively affected by using the cry-it-out method of sleep training, as well as how the baby’s brain can be altered due to prolonged bouts of crying. From this, I have created schedules to help with the overall health of a child. I offer Infant Consults for 4-5 month olds and Sleep Coachingservices starting around 6 to 9 month olds (with ) and up to around 12 years of age.

I am referred by many pediatricians. What is wonderful about this partnership is, even though many of the practice's go-to form of sleep training is the cry-it-out method, they are still open to the concerns of the parent, when they say that that is not for them. At which point they refer them to me.
