Consultation Lowdown

Sleep, like everything, is a learnt skill. A young baby learns to sleep through experience. What a baby learns during the first few months of life become skills that will last them a life time. So it makes sense to teach your baby how to self settle from an early stage. Research shows that sleep problems during infancy can continue all the way up to adulthood.

Don’t wait until you have a sleep problem that needs to be resolved. By helping your baby learn how to settle and resettle early on, you are equipping them with the skills that will last a lifetime.

Consultation include

An initial 2 hour (minimum) consultation in the comfort of your own home where we settle your baby together to see what settling technique is going to work best for your baby. We then work together to decide on an individual plan that you feel confident with.

The action plan will include a routine, a step-by-step settling plan, practical tips & advice and follow-up telephone & internet support.

Over night 1/2 day and Extended Stays can be arranged for hands-on support during sleep guidance. Some parents find this a very beneficial tool in helping them understand how to put the settling plan into practice on the first night, day or consecutive nights.

A typical consultation will be 2 hours in the comfort of your own home, during the consultation we will go through your baby’s sleep and settling history then discuss a settling plan and routine options that might be best for you and your family, where possible we will aim to do a settle with your baby.  We will go through any concerns or questions you may have.
