Will I have to give up breastfeeding if I want to improve my child’s sleep?
Absolutely not! I fully support and encourage you to continue to breastfeed your child for as long as you want. Your bespoke Sleep Plan and Strategy is written based on your family's preferences.
What methods do you use?
I can't stress enough that successful sleep training is much more than picking a method or technique and going for it. If it was, you would have nailed it by yourself and not be reading this.
There are numerous factors to take into account; Age, health, weight, temperament, family set up, environment, diet, exercise, stimulation, maternal mental health etc.
I take all of these into account and of course, your own family goals, before even considering a sleep training technique.
Any methods or techniques I recommend are tried, tested and proven but more importantly they are gentle and sensitive. With virtually every family I recommend they start with a parent in the room with their baby or child.
As every child is so different and will respond differently, I like to blend methods. We will make tweaks and adjustments as we work through the plan and understand how your little one responds. This fine tuning can only be done when you work with an expert one to one and this (for me) is the reason why I always achieve results with families that chose to hire me.
What if it doesn’t work?
Ok, so I'm guessing you're in one of these two camps:
We've tried everything under the sun to get our child to sleep. Controlled crying, pick up/put down, hand holding, earlier bedtime, later bedtime, longer naps/shorter nap and no naps, dummies, white noise and NOTHING works!
We just have no idea what to do, too tired to think and just need someone to show us.
