Specialising in newborns to 5 years old, my sleep packages are the ones for you if you’re ready for a gentle, clear, easy-to-follow plan that will teach your child the skills necessary to sleep well each night, and take restful naps during the day (age dependent).
Let me tell you exactly what my sleep packages include:
1. A preliminary evaluation
This is a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines that you’ll fill out prior to us meeting. Having this information in advance helps me make the most of our time together. Similarly, it is this information that will help shape the sleep plan for your child.
2. A detailed, step by step sleep plan
I prepare your family’s sleep plan based on my discussions with you and my preliminary evaluation. Within my sleep plans, I incorporate the Sleep Sense™ Strategy – a gentle, simple, and effective method to making sleep changes.
3. A private consultation
During our consultation* we will:
- Discuss your sleep plan in detail
- Talk through the strategies involved
- Troubleshoot possible issues
- Talk about general settling techniques
- Address bedtime, nap-times, night wakings; and any other specific issues you might be dealing with.
Should you want hands-on guidance, in-home bedtime support is available for Night 1 of your child’s sleep plan. My support provides assurance that you are off to the best start possible.
4. Extensive support
I pride myself on providing a high level of support to ensure you get through your plan successfully, guiding you through the process every step of the way.
14 Day Online sleep log (in real time)
We will be sharing a sleep log where we keep track of all timings and responses. I review and discuss the log with you daily. It is a great resource that allows us to communicate each day, and for us to see any patterns that may be emerging. We can easily identify what is working well or if there are any areas we need to work on.
Support phone calls
During the first two weeks of your sleep plan, we will have four phone calls. These calls typically last about 15 minutes. We’ll use this time to celebrate successes, deal with any setbacks you might be having, or answer any general questions you may have as you are going through your plan.
Three weeks of unlimited e-mail support
You may find the four phone calls and the daily sleep log communication are enough contact during those first two weeks, however, email support is also available, and will be for an additional week. You can send me through any questions that come up, and I’ll respond to your e-mails within one business day.
