Sleepy Beet

My pediatric sleep programs focus on infants and children who have difficulty establishing normal sleep patterns as a result of behavioral habituation or nutritional insufficiency. If your infant or toddler (or older child!) does not sleep through the night or requires your constant intervention to fall asleep or return to sleep in the middle of the night, I can help you.

 

My programs all start with a free evaluation so I may determine whether your child is experiencing a health or feeding problem that is interfering with her ability to sleep, or if her sleep challenges are behavioral in origin. In both cases, I will develop a plan to remedy the problem and guide you in the implementation of your child’s new sleep routines. If necessary I am also available to come into your home for more personal sleep guidance. Please see below for all my SleepyBeet options and contact me if you need help deciding which one is right for your child!

 

The Sleepy Beet Sleep Program

If you’re ready for a clear, easy-to-follow plan that will teach your child the skills necessary to happily sleep through the night (and take long, restful naps during the day), then here’s everything you need to know about the 10-day SleepyBeet Program.

 

First, let me tell you exactly what’s included:

 

  1. A preliminary evaluation. This is a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines that you’ll fill out prior to our meeting. (Having this information in advance helps us make the most of our time together.)
  2. A private, 90 minute consultation where we’ll discuss strategies, troubleshoot possible problems, and learn how to address bedtime, naptime, nightwakings, or any other specific issues you might be dealing with.
  3. A detailed, fully customized sleep plan that I will prepare for you after the conclusion of our meeting.
  4. Four follow-up telephone calls and unlimited e-mail support during the 10 days of your program following the initial consultation. These follow-up calls typically last about 15-30 minutes, and we’ll use this time to deal with any setbacks you might be having or answer any general questions. You can send me as many emails as you wish during your program and I will respond to your e-mails within one business day.
  5. Final Assessment. At the end of your program I will write up a final assessment of your child’s success in the program and provide tips and suggestions for what to look for in the future.

 

The consultation will take place in the comfort of your home or — if you prefer — over the telephone.  If you live within 20 miles of Pacific Grove, CA, the in-home consultation is included in the price, otherwise you may purchase the in-home consultation add-on.  My availability varies, but I can often accommodate a new client within about a week… and sometimes even sooner.

 

  • Sleepy Beet Sleep Program (1 child):  $425

 

  • Sleepy Beet Sleep Program (2 children/multiples):  $500

 

  • Sleepy Beet Sleep Program (3+ children/non-multiples):  $575

 

  • In-home consultation add-on (if you live 20-50 miles from PG):  $50

 

If you’re not sure if a consultation is right for you, or if you have any questions at all about what’s included or how it works, I’d like to invite you to take advantage of a FREE 15-minute telephone evaluation by calling me at (831) 275-0752. This will give us the chance to chat a little bit about your child’s unique situation, and decide together if a full consultation is the right solution for your family.

 

 

The Sleepy Beet Sleep Program PLUS

Do you need a little extra help? The SleepyBeet Plus program includes in-home support for up to 4 nights in a row. I can come into your home and handle your child’s night time sleep including putting her to sleep and dealing with night wakings, or I can guide you through the process as you teach your child new healthy sleep habits. Because this program can be tailored in a variety of ways and can include 1-4 nights, I ask that you call for pricing. This is hands-down the most effective of my programs as parents are able to learn effective sleep protocols far more quickly when their implementation is demonstrated by a professional sleep consultant. If you want to achieve the quickest results in the easiest way, this program is for you!

 

 

The Healthy Beet Sleep Program

Do you suspect that your child has a gastrointestinal (GI) problem (i.e. reflux, allergies), or have a diagnosis to that effect, and believe it might be causing your child’s sleep troubles? Chances are you’re probably right! Children with GI issues often have a greater difficulty getting to sleep because they are truly uncomfortable due to their dietary intolerances. In this 16-day program I will evaluate your child’s dietary needs and create a Diet Plan to help you manage your child’s GI issues. Depending on your child’s situation, we will implement the dietary program for the first 3-5 days, then follow it with implementation of the SleepyBeet Sleep Program to help you teach your child the skills necessary to happily sleep through the night (and take long, restful naps during the day). This program is recommended for infants and children with digestive issues, allergies, asthma, colic, ADHD, autism, asperger’s, or any other physiological or developmental issues.

 

First, let me tell you exactly what’s included:

 

  • A preliminary evaluation. First you will complete a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines, and a history of his GI issues, in addition to completing 2-3 days of daily logs detailing your child’s day.

 

  • A private, 30 minute consultation to discuss your child’s situation and give me a chance to ask questions about the information you provided in the preliminary evaluation.

 

  • A detailed, fully customized plan that I will prepare for you to address both Diet and Sleep for your child.

 

  • A private, 60 minute consultation where we’ll discuss strategies and implementation of both the Diet and Sleep Plans.

 

  • Five follow-up telephone calls and unlimited e-mail support during the 20 days of your program following the initial consultation. These follow-up calls typically last about 15-30 minutes, and we’ll use this time to deal with any setbacks you might be having or answer any general questions. You can send me as many emails as you wish during your program and I will respond to your e-mails within one business day.

 

  • Weekly email check-ins for one month (or two if I deem it necessary) during and after the program to ensure that your child is on track with his dietary changes.

 

  • Final Assessment. At the end of your program I will write up a final assessment of your child’s success in the program and provide tips and suggestions for what to look for in the future.

 

The consultation will take place in the comfort of your home or — if you prefer — over the telephone. If you live within 20 miles of Pacific Grove, CA, the in-home consultation is included in the price, otherwise you may purchase the in-home consultation add-on. My availability varies, but I can often accommodate a new client within about a week… and sometimes even sooner.

 

  • Initial Consultation: $125

 

  • Health/Sleep Plan Development: $150

 

  • 10-day Sleep Program: $200

 

  • Bi-monthly Consultations (50 min) (1-6 months): $80/hr

 

  • In-home consultation add-on (if you live 20-50 miles from PG): $50

 

If you’re not sure whether you need the SleepyBeet or HealthyBeet Sleep Program please call me for your free 15-minute evaluation (831) 275-0752. I can help you determine whether your child needs special dietary intervention, or if the SleepyBeet program will work on its own.

 

 

Refresher Consultations (for past clients)

This package is especially for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a “refresher.” This is a popular option for past clients who have recently had a new baby — or who are expecting in the near future.

 

This package includes:

 

1. A private, 60 minute consultation that we’ll use to discuss any particular challenges you might be having with your child. Since we’ve already worked together, a full hour is usually more than enough time to cover all your questions and concerns.
2. A Refresher Plan & Week of Emails.  At the end of our consultation, I’ll draw up a plan detailing new protocols for you to follow and provide you with a week of email support to help you implement your new plan.

 

The cost for the Refresher Package is $225.

 

Please note that in order to qualify for this package, we must have worked together in the past.

 

 

Newborn Starter Kit

This package is for parents who are expecting or whose baby is less than 3 months old.

 

The Newborn Start Kit includes:

 

1. A personal Newborn Sleep Plan & a 60 minute consultation*.  You will receive a personalized Newborn Sleep Plan and we will use the consultation to discuss implementation of good sleep habits in your new baby, what to look for as your baby grows, and understand what you can expect from a newborn.
2. Follow-up Support. You will weekly consultations by phone for ten weeks with email support in between (max 6 emails per month) to guide you through the implementation of your Newborn Plan.

 

The cost for the Newborn Start Kit is $425. 

 

 

Hourly Consultation Fees

I can also answer questions on an hourly consultation basis.  This usually works best for clients that I have worked with before as I already know your history, but if you have some general questions about pediatric sleep, I am happy to help!  My hourly consultation fee is $100/hr, with a minimum of 30 min, after that I charge in 15 min blocks.  This single phone call is appropriate for families,

 

  • …whose children are already sleeping well for the most part, but have a few minor issues to resolve still

 

  • …who have gone through the two week program and have a few questions about new issues that crop up as their child hits new milestones

 

The single phone call is not recommended for families whose children do not sleep at all through the night or at nap time, as random tips here and there would likely not be effective.  More complicated cases require a full assessment and at a minimum the Sleepy Beet program to resolve.  If you choose to purchase a phone call and decide later to upgrade to either the SleepyBeet or HealthyBeet program, 50% of the cost of the phone call will be credited to your program.

 

-OR-

 

If you are a Professional Sleep Consultant and want some assistance with your own clients dietary or sleep issues you may purchase a phone call.

 

One 60-min Phone Call:  $100

 

 

One Week Email Support

Only applicable to families who have already done the either the SleepyBeet  or HealthyBeet program, but have developed new issues to resolve.  This is similar to the Refresher Package, but does not include a 60-min phone call.

 

One Week Email Support: $150

 

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon
and helping you solve your child’s sleep problems!
