    Hi there,
    My baby is almost 3 months and I’m interested in attempting a fixed point in the morning and at night. Right now we have a bed time routine but it’s all over the place depending on when she naps and how long she naps for. I’m curious about exactly how to do these fixed points if they aren’t on a strict schedule yet during the day? Do you wake them at night to do their bed time routine or let them sleep and do it when they naturally wake? I’m also wondering if the same applies in the morning? Should I wake her if she is sleeping for the fixed point wake time and hope that she goes fairly according to a flexible schedule like eating and sleeping every 2 -3 hours? I feel like this is a part that no one explains! The schedules are great but we are never told how to execute them!

    Is it possible to sleep coach when starting to crawl/stand, teething and going through 8 month sleep regression?

      Hi @Michelle – Thank you for visiting us! Milestones and teething sure can disrupt even the best sleepers, and when all hit at once, Wow! Regarding learning new developmental milestones, typically at this age, sleep disruptions due to this is just a phase. Most babies, within a matter of weeks, return to their usual sleep schedule. The key is to remain consistent with how you are putting to sleep and how you are getting your baby back to sleep to avoid creating any sleep associations that could linger after this phase passes. teething happens on and off for so long (or it feels like it is so long!), that not sleep coaching when you are anticipating a new tooth could mean not sleep coaching for a couple of years! Our typical recommendations here are to be sure that your baby is comfortable, and you can then feel better about continuing to sleep coach, and in dire times of discomfort, feel free to back off from sleep coaching a little, and do as little as you must, to help baby sleep.
      If you find that things do not smooth out, and you would like some one on one help, please do consider contacting us for help choosing a consultation package!
      Good luck and thanks again for visiting our sleepy little village!
