About The Baby Sleep Massage Course

This 11 steps Shonishin baby sleep massage course aims to help your newborn, baby or toddler with issues related to her sleep. In particular, it helps the baby to self soothe so that she can fall asleep more easily.

Helping a baby sleep is probably the number 1 concern of parents. That’s because babies who are not sleeping or who regularly wake up crying can quickly become a nightmare for parents.

If we can eliminate other important reasons for a baby’s sleep issues, like teething, colic, abdominal pain or earaches, such sleep issues are almost always related to one simple reason: the baby does not know how to self soothe.

This baby sleep massage course addresses that issue.

Accordingly, this course is for you, if you are looking for ways to make your baby go to sleep by helping her self soothe.

Moreover, this course is for you, if you are looking for natural sleep remedies for your baby.

Finally, this baby sleep massage course is also for you, if you are wondering how to get an overtired baby to sleep.

Not only will you learn, why overtired babies find it particularly difficult to fall asleep. You will also learn how you can get your baby to sleep, even though she is overtired.

Important: As mentioned before, baby sleep issues are often caused by other important reasons, like colic, teething or abdominal pain. If that’s the case for your own baby, please select the designated alternative baby massage course instead of this baby sleep course!
