Having a Certified Newborn Care Specialist is like having a personalized parenting textbook that can talk, give advice and answer a parent's numerous question. Terian specializes on combining proven techniques with the goals and style that reflects each individual family. She firmly believes that there is not, 'one right way' to do things. She helps parents with common issues such as reflux, colic, sleep issues, and scheduling a daily routine. Her advice is timely so that parents can adjust and apply it to their current situation without feeling overloaded with information. The parents are able to achieve a full night's rest while Terian is attending to their baby's needs. This leaves the parents feeling rested so that they are mentally and physically prepared to take on the daily task of being parents and their own professional responsibilities.
Terian provides her clients with daily and weekly goals. These goals are based on developmentally appropriate expectations and guides parents through the milestones that their baby is achieving. Terian also works with the families to design a plan that best reflects their parenting goals. She believes that the only 'right way' is what the family has chosen. She has studied different sleep theories, brain development of infants and sleep cycles. Between her studies and her hands on experiences, she can offer families various options and flexibility for sleep learning, sleep training and scheduling. This in turn provides choices for the family to ensure that they find the method(s) that work within their family's goals and beliefs.
Terian believes that most babies have the ability to sleep through the night (10-12 hours) by the age of 12 weeks. She believes that newborns instinctively have the ability to "self-soothe" and will gradually stretch the amount of time in between feedings at night, if their environment allows them this opportunity. This is the key to sleep learning! Terian teaches parents how to help their newborn develop their natural abilities. Parents often unknowingly counteract their newborn's abilities by not recognizing some of their signs, therefore interfering with the process. Terian has successfully completed Sleep Learning using this technique for many babies. She believes that families that are taught positive fundamentals from the beginning are able to enjoy their new baby and often by-pass many of the frustrations that new families face.
Terian also works with older babies using a variety of sleep learning & training methods. These methods are chosen based on the families goals and values, as well as the babies. Terian believes in using non-cry sleep training methods whenever possible. However, each approach is chosen based on the needs of the family and what is developmentally going to meet the needs to the baby.
