All the advice I will give you is evidence-based, meaning that there has been scientific research to back up why we choose certain strategies. The strategies we will discuss and decide on together will be developmentally appropriate for your child.
Never will I suggest you leave your baby to cry it out, or cry for intervals or ever cry alone. I always support and advocate gentle and responsive parenting.
Your bespoke plan won’t include rigid sleep and feeding schedules, these are only successful for around 20% of babies and often cause more stress than they resolve. My goal is for you to understand what your baby’s needs are, after all they are not robots!
Are you having to get up multiple times a night to help your child get back to sleep? You must be exhausted, running on nearly empty every day. I can help you find ways to reduce and even stop those night wakes from happening! Imagine being able to go to bed and relax in the knowledge that you will wake up feeling refreshed in the morning…
Nobody enjoys it when bedtime becomes a prolonged argument. Maybe your little one just turns wild and can’t be settled, or maybe your toddler is a skilled negotiator with 1000 excuses to avoid going to bed? Let’s give you ways to manage that!
Does your little one wake up with the dawn every day? Are you exhausted after being up so early all the time? Let’s get you a lie in (well at least closer to 7am anyway)!
None of the strategies we will use involve cry it out or controlled crying. You will never leave your little one to cry by themselves. All changes are made whilst giving your little one your full and responsive support.
