About This Course

Afraid sleep deprivation is taking an emotional toll and you’re desperate for your newborn to start sleeping better? 

You feel drained and constantly stuck in a loop of exhaustion, frustration, and worry. 

“No matter what I do, my newborn refuses to sleep, they are overtired, and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Being sleep deprived is making it hard to care for my newborn and I feel like I’m losing my mind!”.  

“I wonder what I can do to help my newborn sleep longer stretches!?”. These questions are on your mind and you realize nights pass by and you’re still dealing with wake ups every 1-2 hours without longer stretches in sight!”. 

You have no idea why sleep is such a struggle, you try a new approach everyday, and yet you’re more exhausted than the day before. You know something has to change but you’re unsure what that needs to be!

Imagine if you could…

  • Replace your anxious and frustrated days with blissful relief 
  • Wake up feeling rested and confident to manage your days  
  • Wake up to a happy and rested baby, continuing to support their sleep needs

I am THRILLED to share with you that you can! 

You may think I had all the answers when it came to getting my newborn to sleep. Unfortunately not. Quite the opposite, in fact. 

When the sun went down and it was time for bed, nighttime became a nightmare

My newborn slept very short periods, he would wake every 45-60 minutes and this lasted all night. We didn’t see the 3-4 hour stretch newborns are capable of. 

The never ending and frequent wakings had me exhausted, overwhelmed, and stressed! Everyday was filled with drain and dread, not the feelings I envisioned. 

I thought there MUST be something I could do better to help my newborn sleep and do so in a supportive way. He was far too young for any sleep training method and I wanted to form healthy sleep habits now, not wait for months.  

I started researching infant sleep and found sleep solutions that WORKED!

  • I realized the struggles of daytime sleep can wreak havoc on night sleep 
  • Found safe hacks to cue my newborn that sleep was approaching 
  • Understood how sequences can ease my newborn to fall asleep 
  • A powerful strategy to support my newborn to fall asleep and link sleep cycles 

It CHANGED THE GAME of sleep in our home. My son started to sleep longer stretches every few nights, meaning I could finally sleep longer than an hour! Over the next few weeks our 4-6 hour stretches of sleep turned into 7-9 hour stretches. 

Improving sleep for my newborn supported his developing brain and body, and helped boost my mood and mental health. It soothed my constant worry and frustration, leading into happy and joyful days of parenting

Once my son was 12 weeks old he slept 12 hours straight and it was absolutely life changing! Once he turned 7 months, I found out we were expecting our second and I knew I needed to use my sleep shaping strategies from the start. 

Both my babies had reflux but I was still able to use the tools I learned and have them both sleep through the night by 3 months (without sleep training). I was thrilled and knew my strategies could help many other families in the newborn stage!

It is my goal to enter the home of families worldwide to educate them on setting a healthy sleep foundation in the newborn stage. That we can be responsive, supportive, and see longer stretches of sleep. 

So…if you want to set a healthy sleep foundation from the start (ideal for the first 3 months of life) this virtual session will be your starting point.

Learn all about the benefits of consolidated sleep, safe sleep practices, how to start establishing a routine, daytime management, sleep needs, wake windows (when to adjust), newborn, and infant nap transitions. 

You’ll have virtual access to my troubleshooting nap graphic, level 1-3 sleep cues, managing daytime feeds, managing nights, responding to night wakings, and more! 

This educational video is focused on the science of infant sleep and allows you to feel confident with proper knowledge and tools to navigate and improve your newborn’s sleep. 

At the end of the session you’ll see sample routines (with the help of mom/dad to bridge naps as needed). 

These are the exact techniques I followed within my own home and by 3 months of age both my babies slept through the night.

I can’t wait for you to have a better understanding of your baby’s sleep needs and be empowered to navigate sleep for your baby in a supportive manner.

Happy Learning and Sweet Dreams!

This course is not just for first time parents! We purchased this course for our second child to try and be more prepared in the sleep department the second time around, and it has been so helpful with our two week old son. There is SO much information in this course from newborn all the way up to a few months old so we will be able to reference it for awhile. There are so many things we forgot about newborn sleep so it was a great refresher and also had so many tips we didn't know the first time around. I would highly recommend this course if you want to start good sleep habits from the beginning. With our first child we resorted to rocking and feeding to sleep for weeks and ended up having to sleep train (which we also did with Kayla and it was an AMAZING experience), but having the knowledge from this sleep shaping course might allow us to avoid some of the issues we had the first time around! 100% recommend this course!!

Not just for newborns! Not just for new parents!

This is my second baby, and I thought I would remember everything from the first but when I needed it, it was gone! I took this course when my babe was closer to 4 months and it was so so helpful as a reminder of what to do and how to build positive sleep habits. This is not just a newborn course! I valued all the information Kayla shares even as a second time mom. I have definitely walked away with a tool box full of strategies to help develop and strengthen my baby’s nap schedule and nighttime sleep.

Kayla’s sleep shaping course was an incredible resource for our newborn! It was full of useful information on how to help baby with independent sleep from day 1. I highly recommend this course to any expecting or new parents.

This lesson has such good tips on how to get my little one to sleep independently. I have a month old and already started implementing some tips and I can see a difference. Kayla was also very communicative in helping me navigate through the whole thing. Thank you so much!

Kaylas fundamentals of sleep shaping is a must for all new /expectant moms as well as parents expecting additional kids. I wish I knew all of this with my first - he was a horrible sleeper and we were stuck in a feed to sleep routine constantly. I never realized the importance of wake windows at all, or other ways to soothe/ help to sleep while having them in their own sleep space. Having this course is wonderful and has helped me to stay on track of wake windows for age and other wonderful tips and tools for sleep!

The sleep shaping program is incredibly informative. As a second time mom I l couldn’t believe the information I wish I knew with my first born. I learned so much regarding newborn sleep and how to set up my newborn in an optimal sleep environment. I learned about age appropriate wake windows and most importantly, the difference between stirring and actual waking up. This is a fantastic program

Absolutely love working with Kayla. She’s been super insightful in regards to my little one sleep. He’s 11 weeks tomorrow And sleep for ha in the beginning was rough. Its gotten way way better. There is so many tips, ideas she’s given me. Along with summarized schedules and encouragement!

I started off “going with the flow” for the first month or so, until by baby was needing motion for naps. Thankfully, Kayla and sleep shaping came to the rescue because I didn’t want to be at home rocking my car seat for naps down the road ! This product provided me with so much education. I didn’t even know what wake windows were. With all of the tips and new understanding my baby was sleeping 6-8 hour stretches around the two month mark. We breezed through the four month sleep regression without noting any change or concern. I will definitely be sleep shaping with my second child. I can honestly say, I was never tired in those first few months. Every new mom will get something out of this session. The virtual format is great to share with family members also.

Kayla's Sleep Shaping session is a MUST HAVE for all new parents. I would even recommend it to parents having additional little ones. This past year I had my third child. Kayla's virtual session taught me so many things about baby sleep that I didn't know/thinking of with my previous two children. Her video was easy to listen to and jam packed with so much information and helpful tips. One of the best features is that you can watch it multiple times or stop and start watching it if you get busy. This course will set you up with the foundation for a solid sleeping baby (which is what everyone dreams of). I found it really helpful how she included some suggestions for babies daily schedule as well as wake windows. I highly recommend this program as well as all her services.

Kayla’s sleep shaping course was incredibly helpful! With everything we learned our little one was sleeping throughout the night at 4 months! We are so grateful our little guy is getting consolidated sleep. Thanks so much Kayla!
