Wrapping Your Family in Love

If you’re on the hunt for a parenting solution for your little one, you’ve come to the right place! I am Ashley Lohse, a Sleep Trainer, certified Maternity Nurse, Potty Trainer, and the answer to your parenting woes. I founded Strong Beginnings to wrap you in love and support as you navigate the challenges of raising a family.

Parenting is tough, and it’s made all the more challenging with the many strategies, blogs, and stories online. It often feels like everyone else has it all figured out except for you. Trust me when I say that you are NOT alone. I’ve been there too. The good news is that you found Strong Beginnings. Together, we will help you and your child find a better way forward.

I offer services that are designed to help your baby or toddler get their best start in life while giving you the confidence you need to navigate this roller coaster journey. Strong Beginnings offers Sleep Training, Night Nanny and Potty Training services in the comfort of your own home, whether in person or online.

 

Sleep Training for Babies and Toddlers

Sleep plays a vital role in our physical and mental health, and when the baby isn’t sleeping, you aren’t sleeping either! Ongoing sleep deprivation has been proven to have an effect on behaviour, attention, learning, and memory in children and has been linked to many health problems including heart disease and kidney disease in adults. Helping your little one sleep peacefully and take daily naps is good for everyone.

I use tried and true sleep training techniques, building a plan and routine for your child that will have them sleeping soundly in no time at all. Many of my parents report that their babies sleep through the night within the first week, often up to 11 hours per night! During the day your baby will nap, allowing them to rest and recover from a busy day of learning and give you a chance to
take a shower, feed yourself or maybe even read a book!

Did you know? A newborn can only handle about 45 – 90 minutes of awake time before becoming overtired. Five minutes can really make or break a nap at this age!

Ashley came into my life when my son was 7 months old. I was a working Momma struggling with exhaustion and was at my wits end. Ashley was my angel!!! She helped my husband and I teach our son to sleep, she offered support when things were difficult, and the result was nothing short of amazing. Our son is now over a year and a half, still a solid sleeper during the night and at nap time. No doubt in my mind that Ashley was the best choice for our family. She is work every penny!! I tell all my friends and family that Ashley was the BEST INVESTMENT that we have ever made. Our son sleeps, which means we sleep! A well rested family is a happy family!!! Thank you Ashley!!!

Ashley came recommended to me by a colleague and friend. It has been a great pleasure to work with her. She is personable and professional. Her sleep training method works and is straight forward to implement. My baby went from having 7 hours of fitful sleep at night at 3 months old to 12 hours of restful sleep in 3 days! Now that she is sleeping well at night, I am also able to get the rest I need. We no longer need a soother, a sound machine, or me rocking her to sleep! My husband was somewhat skeptical in the beginning, but now that he has seen the result he could not be happier. I would highly recommend Ashley to any of my friends and family, and I would not hesitate to ask her for help again.

When I first had my now 5.5 month old son I swore up and down that I would never sleep train. My understanding was the out dated belief of the “cry it out method.” However after 5 months of co-sleeping, nursing/bouncing to sleep. The little monkey would only sleep if he was held and his longest nap in the crib was 40 minutes. I was in dire need of a break and some alone time! I am also well versed in attachment parenting and concerned about having my son cry himself to sleep. After speaking with numerous other consultants I went with Ashley because she was, kind, supportive, direct and easy to talk to. I felt heard and validated. With her support our son sleeps thru the night (11-12hrs) and takes every nap in his crib! He now goes to sleep with minimal fuss and all on his own providing me with time to shower, nap, eat etc. He had a few ups and downs but Ashley was consistent and available, knowledgeable and reassuring! I would highly recommend her for anyone needing support with sleep!
