Download This Free Baby Sleep Chart and Watch the Magic Happen

It is amazing how often complex sleeping struggles can be overcome with just a little elbow-grease, know-how, and one magical baby sleep chart. This special baby sleep chart can help predict the future. I’ll prove it.

One of the greatest clues we use to determine how frequently your child will wake at night, or how difficult they will be to go down at night, is whether or not your child is overtired.

This Baby Sleep Chart Can Predict the Future

Your child can only be awake for so long before the brain stops making melatonin (the sleepy hormone) and switches into cortisol production (the stress hormone).

This move to producing cortisol is like giving your baby a Red Bull. It gets them all stoked up and excited.

  • He will be harder to get to fall asleep. (Can you sleep right after a rock concert?)
  • She will be tougher to soothe, all kinds of emotions are floating around and she’s not sure why she’s so angry!
  • He will wake up more often at night, as his brain will struggle to slip into the deeper sleep cycles required for good rest.
  • She may stir earlier in the morning (before 6am).

A magical baby sleep chart can let you know that all those things in your future, just by understanding the averages of what is normal for your child.

What Kind of Information is on this Baby Sleep Chart?

My baby sleep chart is divided into different age groups.

  • 0 to 5 Months
  • 6 to 8 Months
  • 9 to 11 Months
  • 12 to 28 Months
  • 2 to 4 Years

Under each of those categories, you’ll find the average recommended numbers for…

  • Nighttime Sleep
  • Daytime Sleep
  • Wakefulness Window
  • Number of Daily Naps

It’s that Wakefulness Window that you’ll want to really pay attention to. That’s the magic ingredient in this fortune-telling baby sleep chart.

Think of that number like a time bomb. That’s the maximum length of time you have for your child to be awake. If you exceed that time limit…BOOM! a cortisol explosion. Even if just a few seconds late, it doesn’t matter. The brain is making cortisol now.

Best to look ahead and start those nap and bedtime routines about 15-30 minutes earlier (depending on how long it takes for your baby to start slowing down). If you want an easy way to help your child get better rest, make sure your child doesn’t exceed those numbers.

Enough talk, though. Isn’t it time that you saw these things for yourself? Just put your information in below and I’ll email this beautifully designed chart straight to your Inbox. Then print it off and stick it on the fridge as a quick reference for the next several years!

This printable was designed as a free reference for my article 4 Ways to Overcome the Sleep Regression RuiningYour Life. If you haven’t read that article yet, now would be a great time to do so!

Our Sleep Training Program Has a 110% Money Back Sleeping Guarantee

Yes, you read that correctly. We have the only sleep training program that offers you more than a refund. This way we BOTH have skin the game. We’re both leaping off the Cliffs of Insanity together, I just happen to know how to sew parachutes. (Not really, skydiving sounds terrifying.)

The Super Sleeper Full Coaching Program will help you overcome the sleeping hiccups that keep you stuck in a cycle of exhaustion.  

We will teach you how to…

  • Wean away extra unwanted night feedings
  • Get your baby used to sleeping in the crib
  • Develop stronger daytime naps for your baby
  • Help your baby sleep later in the morning
  • Eliminate nighttime wake-ups without using traditional cry-it-out

Yes, my friend, it is possible to proactively teach your baby to sleep all night long without forcing yourself to sit on your hands in the living room while your tiny banshee wails down the walls.

“Amy and Heather are nonjudgmental, caring, and invested in making sure you have the tools you need to help your baby sleep. My son now sleeps 8pm to 7am and there’s no fussing when we put him to bed awake—he knows it’s time to wind down on his own. Hallelujah!”

Talking with a Certified Gentle Sleep Expert Will Change Everything

You’ve been winging it for long enough. It’s time to sit down and really talk with someone who can actually help. Let us listen to your situation, get to know your family, and help you get on the right path. Nothing can give you hope like a plan!

Here’s how our Full Sleep Training Program works. (You know, the one with the 110% Money Back Sleeping Guarantee. I’m not sure I’ve mentioned that…)

Step 1: Schedule Your 1.5 Hour Consult

After your purchase, you’ll be directed to another website so you can schedule a private 90-Minute Consultation with Certified Gentle Sleep Coach Amy Estell.

Step 2: Fill Out Some Paperwork

Amy’s assistant will email you several documents that we’ll need you to fill out so we can get to know your family and unique child a little better. This Health Assessment allows Amy to do a lot of the prep ahead of time, making sure that we’re not wasting any time.

You will also get a Full Sleep Training Program Workbook for you to print off and use during your Consultations and Follow-Up Calls (see Step 3!).

Although most of your direct work will be with Amy, she and I discuss every case together. Two Certified Gentle Sleep Coach heads are always better than one!

Step 3: Chat with Certified GSC Amy Estell

After your Consultation is over, you will also receive eight 20 to 30 minute Follow-Up Phone Calls with Amy so we can regularly check on your progress and make tweaks along the way.

Some parents don’t end up needing all eight calls, having met their sleeping goals early on. If this happens to you, you can either bank those calls for later use or I can issue a refund for the unused calls, whichever you prefer.

See how easy this is?

“She goes down so amazingly easy now. You just turn off the lights, turn on the sound machine, put her in her crib and walk out. She’s asleep within minutes! Talking things through with Heather & Amy really encouraged me.”

Don’t Use Our Sleep Program If You Aren’t Really Ready
(And That’s Okay)

We would love to have you as our next sleepy family, but before you jump in, you should know that our sleep training program isnt for everyone.

Sleep training isn’t easy. Your child isn’t going to want to start sleeping on his own.

Our methods are gentle, but they are not tear-free. (Honestly, even so-called books that talk on the cover about being “no cry” admit there’s crying if you read them…)

They are gentle because we teach you how to actively encourage your baby as he learns these new sleeping skills. He DOES, though, have to learn these sleep skills, which means he’s may not like you for a while. (That said, he will always love you.)

Let me make you a few promises:

  • We will teach you a variety of soothing skills that (I’m betting) you’ve never tried before.
  • You CAN pick up your child during the coaching! We just have a few guidelines to make sure that pick up means something.
  • The more consistent you are in those first few nights, the faster your child will get it and you’ll see results.

You have to get through the fire in order to actually get through the fire, but be comforted that we will be with you every hot step along the way.

Go Beyond a Basic Baby Sleep Chart
Invest in the Advice of a Professional

Okay, so are we just two moms who have a couple of kids and now think we are sleep experts? What makes our knowledge any different than the advice you get from your Mom’s Group?

A certificate, lots of experience, and a truckload of invested money. This is our profession, not a side hobby. Our sleep training is a lot different from other (non-certified, non-gentle) sleep coaches you find online. Let me prove it.

We have studied directly under The Sleep Lady herself, Kim West, and have learned to spot possible medical issues, as well as gentle weaning techniques for every sleeping issue under the sun moon. We always have access to Kim if we need an outside perspective. (Three Certified Gentle Sleep Coach heads are better than two…)

Amy and I had to pass a written exam and complete multiple pro bono supervised case studies to show a strong grasp of the concepts. We also have to pay a yearly re-certification fee and take continuing education classes to confirm that we are up on the latest sleep research for children!

As Certified Gentle Sleep Coaches, we have had to complete over 80 hours of coursework under medical doctors, a psychologist, attorney, lactation consultant, doula, and a family therapist. Together, we have over six years of GSC experience and have helped hundreds of happily sleeping families.

Still Skeptical? Read This.

Hi Heather,

I wanted to be sure to pass along feedback to you on how our sleep coaching experience was, particularly working with Amy. 

First, let me say we worked briefly with another sleep coach last year and as far as your process goes, you guys blew us away! You were so thorough, so organized, and so accessible. It was a remarkable difference from what we’d experienced in the past and was such a breath of fresh air in terms of the challenges we were facing. Everything from the assessment up front to the pacing of the consultations…the whole thing was exactly what we needed.

In regards to {removed}’s sleep progress…wow. We are beyond encouraged. He is finally getting the sleep we know he’s needed all along and he has learned so much about sleep skills. We are so proud of him. And in addition to that, we feel so much more confident in our ability to help him now and in the future. We recognize now some of the reasons why he encounters sleep troubles, how to avoid them, and how to address them when they inevitably come up. We just feel so much more “in control” of our lives nowfor everyone’s benefit! It’s such a blessing. 

And Amy. To put it simply, we LOVED her. She was so easy to work with, so patient with us (our questions, worries, etc), provided the insight we needed into what the real issues were, and the encouragement we (especially me!) needed to stick to the plan to feel good about what we were doing. She is the reason sleep coaching with {removed} went so well. 

My husband was a little skeptical about the idea of a sleep coach before I begged him to do this, and a few days after we were done, he walked in after putting {removed} to bed and said, “That was the best money we’ve spent in a long time.” We already have recommended Amy (and will continue) to a couple of different friends. We are both so happy with Amy and so happy with your service!
