I absolutely love working with newborn babies and their mums and dads! There is a lot of inaccurate information out there around what sleep consultants do and how this translates to the little ones. So, here’s a little bit about what I do, and it’s really simple…
I work with mums and dads to give them the knowledge, tools and confidence to help their baby get the restorative sleep they need to support their rapid growth and development.
Newborn babies do not have the ability to self-settle, so we need to help them find sleep! This is very normal and something which I wholeheartedly support. Feeding or rocking your baby to sleep is not creating bad habits… if it’s what you need to do to get your baby to sleep, then absolutely do it! Getting the right amount of sleep for your baby is a priority no matter how it is achieved (within safe sleeping practises of course).
We can help our babies find sleep in a way that still allows us to set up really great healthy foundations for sleep in the future.
