Are you wondering which of my classes is best for your baby? Let’s talk about it. 

Where do I start?

Start with your baby’s age! Each of my classes emphasizes meeting babies where they are developmentally. Because of that, I always encourage families to buy the class that matches their baby’s age.  

In cases where a baby was born prematurely (before 37 weeks), we’ll use adjusted age to help decide which class is the best option. Now, if your baby was born after 37 weeks (yes, even if that sweet baby was born at 42 weeks), we’ll use their age from birth.

Pick your baby’s age:

0-12 weeks

In the early weeks of your baby’s life, I want you to have the tools you need to lay a healthy sleep foundation for your baby. That’s exactly what my Will I Ever Sleep Again? newborn class is all about. I’ll give you the tools and resources you need to calm a fussy baby, have confidence as a parent, read your baby’s cues, and set your days and nights up for success. And there's no crying involved! I want you to LOVE the newborn stage. 

Now, I know that some of you are reading this and asking “But, Cara, my baby is 11 weeks, is the newborn class the right choice for me?” Yes!  Even for babies 10-12 weeks the newborn class is the right choice for you!

Insider Tip: I love the combination of having both Will I Ever Sleep Again? and Navigating Months 3 & 4, so I have a bundle option called First Five Months Bundle that gives you both classes at 15% off.

3-4 Months  (13-22 weeks)

Around 4 months, babies face huge developmental changes, which can make nights rough.

I created Navigating Months 3 & 4 to offer you a roadmap for moving through this exciting but tricky stage. I'll teach you how to set up a healthy daytime routine, practice important sleep skills, and make progress in your sleep journey. I want you to have the tools to meet your baby right where he is developmentally and feel confident in this new stage of your baby's life.

This ebook is for you whether you took my newborn class or you didn't. It's also for you if you have a great little sleeper and just need next steps or if sleep is a total mess.

If your baby is 4.5 months or older, The 5-24 Month Collection: Everything You Need for Great Sleep will be a better option so that you can be ready to get started when your baby reaches 5 months. 

5-24 Months

I know you want your baby to be a great little sleeper. If your baby is 5-24 months, The 5-24 Month Collection: Everything You Need for Great Sleep can help you get there. 

  • ABCs of Sleep: Your Plan for Great Nights. I’ll walk you step-by-step through a completely customizable, holistic sleep training experience. By the end, your baby will be getting 10-12 hours of independent night sleep.

  • Conquering Naps: Your Plan for Great Days. In this comprehensive class, I’ll help you set up a daytime routine and nap schedule that fits your family’s lifestyle and values. And you’ll get age-specific guidance to meet your baby right where he or she is developmentally at every stage from now until your baby turns 2.

  • Bumps Along the Way. Traveling, sickness, separation anxiety, and lots more can throw your sleep routines for a loop. This class provides practical guidance to help you confidently navigate all of the bumps in your sleep journey, and it’s only available as part of The 5-24 Month Collection. 

Think you’ll need more one-on-one support? I’ve got you! The 5-24 Month Collection PLUS includes a discounted phone consultation with one of my expert certified sleep consultants.

You can also purchase the ABCs of Sleep and Conquering Naps separately. If you need help deciding which class is right for you, this chart can help.

Not ready for a full class? I’ve created a free resource for you with 5 Daytime Tips for Better Nights (and Naps!).

But, Cara, how are your classes different from what you provide in your blogs and Instagram?

I’d love to talk about that with you. Check out this video.

 

Do you offer one-on-one consultations?

If you’ve taken a class and you’re struggling, please know help is available. You can book a phone consult to speak with one of the certified sleep consultants on my team. You get to speak one-on-one with a consultant who will get to know you and your baby and make recommendations based on your unique situation. 

Wherever you are on your baby’s sleep journey, I want to give you the tools to thrive!
