Although exhaustion is an expected part of new parenthood, it doesn’t have to last forever. Understanding how baby sleep works is the first step to improving it!
This two-part Gentle Sleep Coaching Series will teach you everything you need to know to help your baby on the path to sleeping soundly.
The “Sleep Secrets” Gentle Coaching Series is taught by Andrea Galambos, Certified Gentle Sleep Coach and owner of Blissful Nights. As a mother of two busy little boys and a baby daughter, Andrea fully understands the toll extreme sleep deprivation can take.
As a Gentle Sleep Coach, Andrea works with exhausted parents of infants and small children, helping them lovingly teach their children invaluable sleep skills. As the children’s sleep improves, parents are reunited with their own desperately missed uninterrupted sleep.
Join Andrea for an informative sleep education and coaching series for babies and toddlers.

*to attend part 2, you must also attend part 1. Sleep education is an essential part of sleep coaching. The topics covered in Part One will not be covered again in Part Two.
Do I need to register in advance?
It is a good idea to register in advance. I like to keep the classes small so that everyone has a chance to ask their questions. If you aren’t able to register ahead of time, call Dr.For Moms before you head down to make sure there isn’t a waitlist for that particular session.
Do I have to purchase a ticket for myself and my baby’s other parent?
No! One ticket is good for 2 parents. Please let me or Dr.For Moms know when you purchase your ticket how many adults will be coming.
Can I bring my baby?
Absolutely! Babes in arms are always welcome.
What ages will these methods work for?
The topics covered in “Part One: Sleep Education” are great to use with any age. The “Part Two: Gentle Sleep Coaching Workshop” is intended for babies and toddlers between the ages of 4 months and 3 years of age.
What is your philosophy towards sleep coaching?
Great question! Read about my philosophy here
I’m breastfeeding. Can I still help my baby to sleep better?
Sleep coaching and breastfeeding are not contradictory! You can absolutely continue breastfeeding and attain better sleep. The methods used are both breastfeeding and attachment theory friendly.
