How do I know which package is right for me?

Packages A & B are best if…

  • You work best when you can ask questions and get personalized responses.
  • In moments of challenge, you benefit from encouragement and reassurance to keep going.
  • Your baby has unique needs that may require troubleshooting.

Package C is best if…

  • You work best digesting new information and putting it into action on your own.

  • In moments of challenge, you have the independent drive or personal support systems already in place to keep going.

  • You feel that you can troubleshoot any unique needs on your own or simply by revisiting the plan provided.

Note: You can always purchase a phone consult at a later date. Buying them as part of your package simply saves you money. The Facebook group is only available as a bonus feature of plans A and B.

We are excited to helping you succeed with this program and can’t wait to help you get started on your journey towards sleep-filled nights.

Is the ABCs of Sleep right for our family?

Please read the following statements

My baby is over 5 months of age.

All medical issues are being treated or resolved. (For example: reflux is under control or is appropriately treated with intervention/medication)

My baby is following his growth curve (gaining weight) and my pediatrician says sleep training is acceptable at this time

I understand there will be crying, but Cara will teach me how and when to intervene so my baby never feels abandoned.

I am ready for my baby to sleep independently in his/her crib.

I will make time to watch a 90 minute class (preferably all at once, but not required).

I can commit to following a sleep plan for 14 nights in a row.

I understand that I can choose a package that includes support and encouragement through my entire journey in the private Taking Cara Babies Facebook Group and personal phone consults. I also understand that phone consults can be added to any package at any point to help ensure my baby’s success. I never have to walk this journey alone.

I understand that Cara is a nurse, but this is not medical advice. However, everything taught in this class has been created using evidenced-based, scientific research.

Can you answer “yes” to any (if not all) of these questions?

1

Are you up multiple times a night even though your baby is older than 5 months?

2

Co-sleeping, but not much “sleep” is happening?

3

Replacing the pacifier multiple times a night sounds familiar?

4

Is your lack of sleep beginning to frustrate you or affect your daily performance?

5

Perhaps your baby has to sleep in a swing?

6

Does your baby have to be fed, rocked, or bounced to sleep?

7

Your baby sleeps less than 11 hours per night?

8

Is your relationship with your significant other beginning to suffer?

Does this sound too good to be true?

Your baby sleeps consistently 10-12 hours each night in the crib.

Bedtime is a snuggle fest, not a fight.

You and your spouse have time to connect in the late evenings.

You wake up refreshed and are greeted by a happy baby.

You have a flexible routine each day, but are not imprisoned by a strict schedule.

It’s NOT too good to be true!

“The ABC’s of Sleep” is a complete guide for parents desiring a restful night’s sleep for their baby and themselves. It is a sleep plan to follow to conquer rough nights.

Yes, there will be crying, but you will be attached to the entire journey so your baby never is abandoned or neglected.

For parents who know their nights need to change, but don’t know where to begin, you’ve come to the right place. This online class is a step-by-step approach to help your little one sleep in the crib the entire night while you provide reassurance all along the way.

Frequent Questions

What if my baby has to be nursed/fed to sleep?

The “ABC’s of Sleep” addresses that too. Cara lays out how to teach your little one to fall asleep independently.

What about night feedings?
We will gradually wean night feedings over the first week. If you or your doctor feel your baby still needs a feeding in the night, this class will show you how to maintain it.
What makes Cara qualified?

19 years experience as a neonatal and obstetrical nurse

13 of those years studying evidenced-based research in infant sleep, development, and attachment

Dedicated the last 5 years writing customized sleep plans while coaching hundreds of sleep-deprived parents

Combine all of that with the tender-heartedness of a mama who personally struggled with sleep deprivation and is madly in love with her four children…

…and  you have the perfect combination of someone ready and willing to help tired babies and parents transform their life for the better.

(See Cara’s Story HERE)

What is Cara's method & philosophy?

Cara’s goal is for babies to learn to sleep through the night, but to shed the fewest number of tears in the process. She doesn’t believe in leaving babies to “cry it out” while parents are totally unattached to the process.

“The ABC’s of Sleep” is a balanced approach to help babies learn the skill of sleeping while teaching parents how to provide hands-on reassurance.

Sure, there WILL be crying as a baby protests the change to a familiar routine, but Cara will teach you how and when to intervene so your baby doesn’t feel abandoned or neglected.

Do you offer ongoing support?

Yes we do!

We are so happy offer 3 options to provide the type of support system that works best for your family and budget.
When you purchase the online class, “The ABC’s of Sleep,” you will be able to choose from these 3 tiers of support:

1) Our “A” package includes 2 phone consults to address your personal concerns and needs as well as bonus access to our ABC’s support group on Facebook. This group, run by Taking Cara Babies certified sleep consultants and volunteer mentor moms, provides ongoing encouragement and helpful tips along your journey.

2) Our “B” package includes 1 phone consult to address your personal concerns and needs as well as bonus access to our ABC’s support group on Facebook. This group, run by Taking Cara Babies certified sleep consultants and volunteer mentor moms, provides ongoing encouragement and helpful tips along your journey.

3) Our “C” package includes all of the materials you need to walk through “The ABC’s of Sleep” on your own, but it does not include any personal support in the initial price. If you do find that you need that support at any point in your journey, you are always welcome to purchase a phone consult with Cara or a member of the Taking Cara Babies staff.

What is the success rate?

For parents who commit to following the plan laid out in the “ABC’s of Sleep” for 14 nights, there is 98% success rate with babies sleeping 10-12 hours each and every night. One hundred percent of those babies are completely attached to their parents after the 14-night journey is completed.

Will sleep training damage my baby emotionally?

There is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that crying with constant reassurance has any negative long-term side effects upon a baby. In fact, research proves just the opposite. Research shows that rested kids are joyful, attentive, and flourish in their environment! Cara shows you how to maintain a loving relationship with your baby as he learns to sleep through the night.
See research HERE.

Is this a one time fix?

Upon purchase of The ABC’s of Sleep, you will receive a 60 page printable booklet. This will guide you through the first two years of your baby’s life as developmental changes occur. It gives you a detailed plan to follow, night weaning instructions, nap guidelines, sample day schedules for each age group and answers to frequently asked sleep questions.

The first time you implement The ABC’s of Sleep, it takes about 14 nights to see those consistent 10-12 hour nights. Anytime sleep is derailed (due to travel, illness, or sleep regressions) simply follow the instructions in your booklet and your excellent little sleeper will return in about 3-5 nights.

Does this work for babies in daycare?

Many, many, many babies have been successful with this program while attending daycare. 
Day sleep and night sleep use different parts of the brain. You can have long, restful nights by following this plan even if your baby attends daycare. Your daycare providers can continue their normal routine in most situations.

Does this work for twins/multiples?

This sleep plan has been incredibly successful for multiples. We will treat them as individuals and follow the plan laid out in The ABC’s of Sleep. Some parents keep them in the nursery together. Amazingly, twins learn to sleep well despite their sibling awakening. Feel free to keep them both in the same room. 
Other times, parents find more success by separating the babies for 14 nights. More information is available after purchase in your booklet regarding multiples.
