This guide is sponsored by the featured businesses.

We’ve all been there – that feeling of hopelessness in the middle of the night when, once again, baby is awake.

If you’re feeling stuck, or just like you could use a little support around best ways to handle night time, it may be time to find a sleep consultant to help you and your baby sleep.

Whether you’re a new mom just getting her feet wet or a seasoned one dealing with sleep issues your older children never had, a sleep consultant can be the key to helping you, your baby, and your entire family the sleep that you need.

Here are our favorite local sleep consultants:

Find a DC Area Sleep Consultant

A sleep consultant can be an invaluable resource for parents, whether they have a newborn or toddler.

They are sleep experts that typically offer education around the science of sleep, advice on how to implement best practices, and personalized plans and support to help your child sleep through the night.

Many sleep consultants offer free consultation calls that will give you an idea of their philosophies and personalities – your relationship with a sleep consultant is high-touch, so you want to make sure they’re the right fit!

Once you find the right fit, you generally sign an agreement and then receive a plan personalized to your child and family’s needs. Then, you and your sleep consultant work together to implement the plan and tweak as needed until your little one sleeps all night long (and you, too!).

Best Night Nurses in the DC Area

A night nurse (also called a baby nurse) can be a game changer those first few weeks at home with a newborn.

Night nurses typically provide night-time care for newborns, taking care of things like diaper changes and bottle feeds so parents get much-needed sleep. If the mother is nursing, the night nurse brings the baby to her for overnight feedings.

Aside from the benefit of better sleep for parents, night nurses also are experts on helping babies learn to sleep through the night and setting schedules that work best for your family.

You typically work with a baby nurse for several weeks, but longer term contracts are often available if needed.

If you think a night nurse is the right fit for your family, consider these local businesses to find yours:
