What mother has not at least once loathed the hours between 1-5am? I know I have! My son still wakes a few times a week in the wee hours of the morning. As I silently curse the missed opportunity for a few more precious minutes of delicious sweet sleep, I scoop him up and rock until he drifts back off unless he doesn't and decides to throw a party in his crib. WHY do they do this?!?!?!?! Do these children not care that mom or dad have not gotten enough sleep? Is there anyone out there who can help? YES, there absolutely is!
Join me in welcoming Cape Cod Mommies newest Advisor, Sleep Coach, Rebekah Thomson!
Rebekah is a mother of two and pediatric sleep coach, trained and certified by Kim West, LCSW-C. She grew up in Washington, DC and graduated from Wesleyan University. Rebekah taught middle school English and history for nine years until she became a full-time mom. She currently resides with her family in Chilmark, Massachusetts on Martha's Vineyard.
Rebekah’s daughter was born in 2008, marking the start of a fabulous but sleep-deprived year. It was Kim West’s Good Night Sleep Tight that provided an approach that both respected her parenting values and worked – her daughter’s sleep improved drastically within a week. Then, just after her son was born, Rebekah began her Gentle Sleep Coach training, figuring it would empower her to help him learn to sleep well and make her popular with her mommy friends! Now, after seeing how rewarding sleep coaching is, Rebekah has worked with hundreds of families to help them get the rest they need.
Stay tuned for Rebekah's upcoming blogs as the Sleep Coach shares her expertise with us!
