The One on One Sleep Coaching Programs:

  • The Client will have access to the portal and resource library to get started and prepare for the sleep consultation/ planning session.  Loving Lessons requests that Client complete a Client Sleep History intake form and return it to Loving Lessons at least 48 hours prior to consultation appointment.
  • During the consultation Loving Lessons & Client will meet, discuss, and create a plan together that addresses the Client's child’s sleep and feeding patterns and sleep environment.  Loving Lessons and Client will work together to create a personal sleep plan for Client’s child.  As a collaborator in Client's plan, Client will provide Client's parental expertise and unique input about Client's child(ren).  
  • Private Coaching begins after the clients one on one sleep consultation. 
  • Private Coaching is designed to answer more of Client's questions, adjust Client's sleep plan, keep Client focused on Client's personal sleep goals and offer additional sleep support.

    •  Loving Lessons will email the details using What's App after the consultation. 
    • Private coaching is NOT on demand coaching.
    • The unlimited calls, text, video, and audio messages during the private coaching period will have a 24 hour period response time, except for on the weekend where Loving Lessons  practices a 24 hour period of rest based on our family schedule which would then result in a 36 hour period of response.
