Parenthood brings many joys, but all parents, especially new ones, share one challenge in common – building effective sleep habits for their babies. Sleeplessness and parenthood are often perceived to go hand-in-hand, but Ann Marks says differently. The creator of The Full Feeding Method, Ann Marks, has played an instrumental role in guiding parents to put their babies to sleep effectively and consistently, building a system that prevents neither the parent nor the child from losing a good night’s sleep.
As a mother of three herself, including twins, Ann Marks knows how difficult it can be to implement consistent sleep habits for infants. Hence, she developed The Full Feedings Method, which has proven effective in helping parents achieve consistent nighttime sleep from birth. The method veers away from the popular sleep training method of crying it out. Instead, the method helps parents meet the baby’s need for enough food to fully satisfy their stomach, ensuring that there is no need to feed at night (when age-appropriate) as well as preventing them from sleeping too much during the daytime (so 12-hours of nighttime sleep is possible). Once all age-appropriate needs are met, The Full Feedings Method guarantees a baby can sleep naturally every night and even help keep the consistent nighttime sleep through the many transitions of baby’s first years of life.
“My method can begin from birth and involves no crying. It also encourages parents to hold and help their babies to sleep, which is good for sleep and mental health,” said Ann Marks, emphasizing that The Full Feedings Method is ideal for babies of all ages. The program is available for parents who registered for membership in the life-changing coaching course where Ann Marks offers tools and all the ingredients needed to develop healthier sleep patterns. The program also offers phone and email support for parents who may have questions at any given time, a service signifying the founder’s commitment to genuinely helping parents address the problem of sleep deprivation.
With the membership, parents get access to a simple three-step method explaining how to establish consistent sleep, as well as monthly guides showing parents age-appropriate sleep routines for their children. The program also provides over 80 helpful videos and 50 PDFs to help parents understand their baby’s eating and sleeping problems better anywhere they want.
“I honestly just wanted my daughter to sleep so that I could sleep too. That was my only goal. I was searching for a method that would get my daughter sleeping through the night as quickly as possible, without compromising her needs at any time or leaving her to ‘cry it out,” Ann Marks said. “I wanted something flexible and gentle yet effective. I decided to create an alternative – a full night of sleep for any parent who wants it, without having to sleep-train their baby,” she added further.
Ann Marks shared that she developed the program because of her love for sleeping, understanding that a good rest is crucial for people to function to their fullest, especially for parents whose responsibility is to care for their children. She saw many parents being conditioned that parenthood would cause them to never sleep again, and she wanted to give parents an alternative…a full night of sleep for any parent who wanted it. Today, The Full Feedings Method has changed not only her life but also the lives of many parents worldwide.
