There you are, in the early days of motherhood. You love it, but you're also exhausted and desperate for some rest. Your friend, relative, or pediatrician recommended trying a sleep training method they used, so you decided to give it a shot. Now here you are, feeling ill as you listen to your baby scream for you in the next room. It makes your heart hurt, but this is the only way they’ll learn to sleep, right? 

Here at The Better Part, we know there is. With our knowledge of biologically normal infant sleep & development and our attachment-focused strategies, we work with you to find an approach to sleep that respects your baby's needs and encourages your instincts to take center stage. We don't rely on outdated methods or a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather focus on giving you the knowledge and tools you need to find the best solutions for your family's needs.

here's how:

But what if it wasn't? What if there's a better way?

I'm Catie, a baby led sleep and well-being specialist, but more importantly, a mama who’s walked through all of this and discovered the life changing approach of holistic sleep & parenting.

When I entered into motherhood, I had no idea the kind of stretching I was walking into. I was anything but the gentle, patient mother that I wanted to be, the kind of mother I didn't have growing up. And my ideas of all of the things I was supposed to do in motherhood robbed me of the joy that comes with just being my son's mama. And the anxiety that came along with all of society's expectations for who and what my baby should be (easily able to breastfeed, sleeping through the night at 6 months, totally at ease being set down or put in his crib) made me feel like I was failing. That is, until I dove into learning about normal infant sleep and biology. Learning about why my son wanted to sleep close to me and how my own wounds triggered unexpected reactions to my son brought me a kind of peace and faith in Jesus' plan for my motherhood -- and started a passion in me for helping other mamas struggling with the same thing. And so The Better Part was born!
