What is sleep training?
Sleep training is merely the process of helping a baby learn to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.
In order to put a comprehensive plan in place, I need to have a clear picture of the problem you are having, your current routine, baby’s diet and what you are doing at the moment to get baby to sleep. With this information I can then recommend a technique, and some subtle changes that can fix the problem.
We cover everything from sleep environment to sleep associations, diet and routine.
My techniques range from in room, hands on approaches to out of room, self soothing techniques. We work together to find solutions that suit your parenting style.
Sleep is a learned skill, and it is my job to teach you how to teach your children to sleep better, as this is essential for their growth and development.
As we all know we are much better parents when we have had a good night’s sleep.
How much of my time will be involved?
When you purchase a package I will email you a questionnaire to complete with as much detail as possible about your child’s current sleep regime, diet and daily routine. You will then be required to trial the chosen sleep plan technique and make any of the recommended changes, with support from me. I ask that you commit to up to 2 weeks of documenting your progress and emailing this to me – for continued support and advise. With most of my techniques you will see changes in 3 – 5 days, but be prepared for more challenging cases to take up to two weeks.
Consistency and communication are the only commitments I require from you.
Which package is right for me?
If you are unsure about which package is the right fit for you and your family, I am more than happy to talk over the phone with you in a FREE 15 minute consultation. Together we can decide what will work best for you needs.
What age children do you work with?
I work with children aged 3 weeks to 5 years.
Newborn babies with sleep challenges under 3 weeks, need to have been assessed by a midwife, pediatrician, or Lactation consultant as it more often than not a feeding issue that is failing their sleep.
