Recently I asked the question on my social media “Why do you choose NOT to work with a sleep consultant”? The choice of answers were ...
The most common answer was “expense” and then a close second “what can I learn for a sleep consultant a book can’t teach me..”?
These are extremely valid answers. Of course the cost of a book is a tiny fraction of the cost a sleep consultant may be so of course we will head to the book shop first. Even read some blogs online and scroll our phones in the hope of finding free advice and answers. Even ask our friends what they did to get their child to sleep.
In this blog today I am going to go through a few reasons a sleep consultant may be the better choice for your family and is worth every penny…
The light at the end of the tunnel is literally here! Those dark mornings are over, lighter, longer evenings are finally here! “Hooray” I hear you celebrate, but what does this mean for our little ones and their routine and how do we need to prepare them for this 1 hour clock change? Do we need to do anything at all?
In today’s blog I am going to explain why you may want to transition slowly and prepare your child for the clocks going forward one hour and also why you may feel there is no need to do anything at all and you can just wing it!
You have a baby on the way, perhaps your new-born bundle has arrived and you are in the throes of those early weeks with cosy snuggles on the sofa and what feels like a constant carousel of feeding and nappy changing…and sleep deprivation.

In this article I am going to talk about all the sleep aids that claim your baby “will sleep better” if you use it and what is really not needed because either they have been certified unsafe or you just genuinely, in my opinion just don’t need.
The toddler years have really arrived now and you are chasing your toddler around the living room and hustling them into the buggy for a run around at the park! It sure is a busy time and there are pretty exhausted by the end of the day not to forget how exhausted you are also! Your little one may have even started day care!
So what does all this look like in terms of sleep? How much day sleep and night sleep is needed, normal, expected? Should a child still be waking in the night for feeds and taking hours to go back to sleep again…let’s find out in today’s blog!
You made it, through the 4th trimester, that 4 month sleep “progression” and now entering a new dimension of baby sleep! Many babies really settle into a good night pattern at this age and some are still waking quite a lot. Both are normal, expected, so don’t think your baby should be sleeping through the night just because your friends 5 month old is.
