Who are the types of parents you work with?
If you value your own sleep, as well as that of your family, and would like help improving the sleep habits of your baby, we can help. Whatever your parenting style, whether you're an AP parent or mainstream, whether you're a first-time mother, a third-time mother, an adopted parent, or a parent of multiples we can help!
Throughout this process, will my parenting philosophy or approach be respected?
We empower parents with knowledge and do not force any changes on you. All of our consultants work with parents to help them make the changes needed for the healthy sleep of their families without compromising their parenting style.
If you are happy with what is working for you and your family, keep doing it. However, if you feel your child's sleep needs to be improved for the health of your family, we will provide advice and guidance to guide you.
How do I know that your methods will work for my child?
Despite the fact that your child is unique and individual, there are not as many sleep challenges as there are children; many experience a series of the same problems. Because our approach is based on the latest research into the science of sleep, and all of our solutions are evidence-based, families will see results as long as they commit to implementing suggested changes in a way that works for them.
Even in the remarkable cases, where a child has a serious illness, or may have suffered from a brain injury or the effects of a parents’ addiction, positive changes to their sleep are able to be achieved.
Will I have to leave my baby to cry it out?
You can help your baby or toddler learn to sleep independently using our tried and tested 'no cry' solutions. Sleep training isn't always without tears, however. It is possible for your baby to cry during sleep training if they have some deep-rooted sleep associations or are wilful. However, you do not have to leave your baby crying alone in their cot – our consultants will help you figure out how to do it in a way that works for both you and your baby.
How will working with a sleep consultant benefit my family?
We believe that sleep is important – for you and for your children – and that every family has a right to achieve the quality sleep they need. Asking for help is OK. It is usually important to work with a certified baby sleep consultant so that you can change your child's associations with sleep so that the entire family can function at their best and achieve optimum sleep health.
Rather than being a baby whisperer, we are a parent whisperer – providing you with the guidance, knowledge, and reassurance you need to help your child sleep better. By doing so, you're able to maintain the changes you're able to make for your family.
How qualified are your consultants and are they all equally qualified?
We train and certify all of our Baby Sleep Consultants under the same industry-leading program. Our program is so good that we are also a registered training provider, which means we train and certify consultants around the country and around the globe.
Isn’t sleep deprivation just part of the early years of parenting?
Despite the fact that many people think sleep deprivation is a rite of passage to becoming a parent, the early years of parenting don't have to be sleepless.
Many families are suffering and when you are tired, it's hard to be the parent you really want to be, never mind maintaining your relationships or functioning well at work. With a few simple and sustainable tweaks, you can get your family back on track to getting the sleep they need. Sleep is absolutely essential for our health and wellbeing.
It used to take an entire village to raise a child, but now it's rare to see an extended family raise children together. In the absence of those wider traditional support networks, Baby Sleep Consultants provide reassurance and guidance amidst a sea of information that can feel overwhelming.
How does sleep deprivation affect health and wellbeing?
It is widely recognized that sleep is as important to our health and wellbeing as food, yet it doesn't receive the same kind of attention and energy. Research surrounding the science of sleep is continuing, and we now know more than ever before about what it entails.
The World Health Organization (WHO) released official guidelines in 2016 regarding children's sleep needs and how they relate to obesity, proving once again that sleep plays a significant role in our wellbeing and that its impact on our health starts from an early age.
What impact does the science of sleep have on your approach?
Our methodology is sound and our process is streamlined, as we are Registered Training Providers, training sleep consultants from all over the world. All of our sleep science solutions are based on the latest developments and research surrounding sleep science.
When it comes to solving sleep challenges, we understand that there's no magic bullet. The families we work with achieve incredible results in their children's sleep, but are also committed to the process.
