“We are seeing now, more than ever, the effect that sleep deprivation has on the body,” says company owner Courtney Zentz, a pediatric sleep professional, post-partum doula and certified lactation counselor. “This is true for children and adults. It is expected and necessary for newborns to have a greater frequency of hunger and long durations of sleep in a given 24-hour period, which parents expect when bringing a child home.”
Zentz, who was interviewed on WFMZ TV, notes that most new parents are completely frustrated by their children’s erratic sleep patterns, leading to exhaustion and resentment that affects the whole family.
“The lack of knowledge, education and awareness around sleep and children is a fundamental shortcoming for parents in today’s society,” Zentz points out. “There is no sleep education, support, or advice shared with new families, and as a result, parents suffer in silence with a child who doesn’t develop proper sleep skills. This can have lasting effects on development, eating habits, mood and much more for years to come.”
Tiny Transitions has sleep consultation packages for expectant, newborn, infant and toddler parents. Each package is tailored to the needs of the child at his or her particular age, and each package comes with robust follow up support.
Zentz concludes, “Sleep is the greatest gift that can be given to our children and ourselves – families need to understand things can change, and companies like Tiny Transitions exist to help make that change possible.”
Tiny Transitions was conferred “Best of Philadelphia” and the “Main Line Love” awards in May 2017. Learn more about Tiny Transition’s consultation services at tinytransitions.com/services.html.
