What is a baby sleep consultant and what do we do ?
Many people have not heard of a baby sleep consultant until they have their own baby.
Too often I see parents reaching out for assistance with their child’s sleep and are instructed that sleep deprivation is normal and are encouraged to suck it up and get on with it. Whilst a certain amount of sleep deprivation is definitely associated with having a newborn baby, continuing sleep deprivation isn’t and long-term sleep deprivation has serious implication for bub and the whole family.
A qualified baby sleep consultant can help with a variety of sleep related issues and can assist with the following:
Newborn education for parents
Physiology of sleep and development
Age appropriate routine structure
Evidence based settling approaches
Promoting independent and safe sleep
Eliminating night feeds and waking
