"My kid's not sleeping, and my wife is going crazy." - Dads of Sleep Deprived Kids Everywhere
Each week, I get several calls from families wanting to know more about sleep training and to find out if I can help their little ones. It seems to me that I am getting more and more calls from dads seeking help for their partners. It's refreshing, and I'm surprised it doesn't happen more -- dads are reaching out to get baby sleeping on their own and to make sure that their wives are getting the chance to rest and recuperate. You can also sense that they're ready to have some re-connect time as well. Parents should have that and deserve it.
Sometimes, moms have to convince dads to put down the money to hire a sleep trainer. And if you're one of those dads, listen. Your wife needs help! She's exhausted from having to rock baby to sleep every night, she's had it with a million middle of the night wake ups. She'd also like to try and sleep past 5am. Chances are, you'd like to see this stuff end too. Why not get the help your wife needs to get your baby sleeping independently and really, really well?
Mothers are only everything -- they run the household, teach and take care of the kids, do the cleaning, drive people around, and more. According to salary.com, stay-at-home moms technically earn $115,000, clocking in nearly 100 hours of work a week. Try doing all of that when you're chronically sleep deprived.
SLEEP IS A NECESSITY! A lot of moms that I speak to don't give it the priority that it needs. And, I realize that it's easier said than done -- we want to try and do it all. But, for the long haul, a girl's gotta sleep. Fortunately, so many dads out there are trying to make that happen for their wives -- and sometimes, you have to call in reinforcements.
Now I realize that there are plenty of families where it's Mom working and Dad's at home with the kids. So, all you working moms out there read up for your mister ;)
Parents have to work as a team -- to support each other, encourage each other, and to hold each other accountable when working towards an end goal. So to all the parents out there, don't hesitate to ask for help. Moms (and dads) need to rest better and I want to help you achieve that for yourselves and your child.
