Sleep Training for 7-10 Year Olds
Sleep Training for 7-10 Year Olds
If your older child is still experiencing sleep issues or has developed sleep disturbances, it can be incredibly daunting or overwhelming. By the age of 7, 8, 9, or 10, I am sure every parent will have hoped their child will be sleeping soundly through the night.
Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for Children in the age 7-10 age bracket to develop anxiety around sleep or inconsistent sleep patterns, even if they have slept through at an earlier age.
Anxiety-related sleep disturbances are rising among school-aged children, and I am pleased to be able to offer sleep training for 7-10 year olds, offering much needed support for children and their families.
Using a sleep consultant for sleep training a 7-10 year old can offer numerous benefits, particularly when it comes to addressing childhood anxiety and developing good sleep habits.
I Offer Expert Guidance to Help Your 7-10 Year Old Sleep
As a professional sleep consultant, I have extensive knowledge and experience in sleep science and child sleep behaviour. I understand the unique challenges faced by children in the 7-10 year age range and can provide tailored strategies to address their individual sleep issues effectively.
Your Child's Personalised Sleep Plan
I will work with you and your child to develop a personalised sleep plan that takes into account your child's specific needs, anxieties, and sleep patterns. I understand that every child is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. When developing your child's sleep plan, I will consider factors such as the child's temperament, sleep associations, and family dynamics, ensuring that the sleep training methods are aligned with the child's overall well-being.
I Help Address Childhood Anxiety
Many children in this age group may experience anxiety-related sleep disturbances. This could be due to school-related stress, separation anxiety, fears, or other emotional factors. I will try my best to help identify the underlying causes of anxiety and create a sleep plan that incorporates relaxation techniques, coping strategies, and a supportive bedtime routine.
Establishing Consistent Sleep Patterns
Consistency is key when it comes to good sleep habits. We will work towards establishing a consistent sleep schedule for your child, with the aim that they go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
Sleep Environment Optimisation
I will assess the child's sleep environment and make recommendations for optimising it, providing suggestions on factors such as lighting, noise levels, temperature, and comfort. Creating a calm and conducive sleep environment can significantly improve the child's sleep quality and promote a sense of security and relaxation.
Sleep Support for Parents and Carers
My work is not only focused on the child, but also provides valuable support and education to parents or carers. By equipping you with the skills for effective parenting techniques related to sleep, you will be able to support your child's sleep journey beyond the consultation period.
What My Clients Say
After 2 weeks of following Kath's excellent and simple advise we now have a 6 month old sleeping in her own cot, pram or car seat. Overnight I only have to wake to do a dream feed, if she wakes on her own in the night I can get her back to sleep without feeding. My 3 year old is also falling asleep on his own in his own bed and sleeping through the night. I can't thank Kath enough for sharing all her knowledge and being so hands on with us. She has given the whole family the gift of more sleep and myself and my husband our evenings together back.
