This sleep training plan is designed for babies who are 6 months adjusted, are sleeping in their own room (with their pediatrician's approval) and are ready to fall asleep independently without swaddle, binky, or other sleep aides. The check and console sleep training method allows the parents to conduct timed checks, where they enter the room and talk to their baby and possible place a hand on the baby's chest to soothe and then leave the room. The Check and Console sleep training method typically sees nightime sleep improve within 4-7 nights and naps in 2+ weeks. With this plan your baby will be able to fall asleep quickly and independently for 2-3 naps throughout the day, as well as sleep 11-13 hours at night with 0-2 feedings depending on your goals and approval from your pediatrician.


Your Plan Includes:


  • Developmentally appropriate sleep goals for the specified age range 
  • Creating the perfect sleep environment that will actually improve sleep 
  • The perfect bedtime routine and how to keep it efficient but effective 
  • Transitioning out of the swaddle 
  • Understanding sleep needs for your baby and how to keep your baby well rested 
  • Two sample six month schedule with either two or three naps, with principles to customize the schedule for your baby 
  • Detailed guidelines for executing the chosen sleep training method as well as troubleshooting guidelines for short naps 
  • Tuning into sleep cues to time naps perfectly 
  • Outlining appropriate expectations for the sleep traininig experience 
  • Guidelines to determine whether your baby needs two or three naps
  • How to transition from three to two naps
  • Transitioning from wake times to naps by the clock guide
  • Sleep tracking form 
  • Bonus Materail: 7 month sample sleep schedules for two and three naps
  • Favorite Sleep Prodcucts


If you follow the plan with consistency and are not seeing improvement in the time outlined above then it is likely there is somethng else going on for your child to prevent good sleep. At that point, I would encourage you to schedule a 60 minute consultation, that includes an in-depth intake form to assess for the possibility of underlying issues. This consultation will be discounted by the price paid for this sleep plan from the normal $120 fee. To proceed you would send me an email at marietta@littledreamers.us sending a screen shot of your receipt, your sleep tracker, and a brief discription of your consistency and how your child is responding and I will email you an invoice and a link to schedule your consultation. The email must be received within a month of purchasing this specific sleep plan.
