Any changes you make to your babies sleeping or eating arrangements are your decision and we at Baby Sleep Consultant only make suggestions for change, of which you are responsible for choosing to implement.
The following Terms and Conditions govern this Baby Sleep Consultant Web site. Your use of this site constitutes your agreement with these terms. If you do not agree to these terms, do not use the Web site.
Baby Sleep Consultant provides the www.babysleepconsultant.co web site to promote broad consumer understanding and knowledge of various health topics, including family and child sleep practices. All the information on this Web site is published in good faith and for general information and educational purpose only. The information is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition or treatment and before undertaking a new health care regimen. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on this site.
Our refund policy specifies that you must follow our advice and use our guidance for two weeks before requesting a refund. Refusal to follow advice or use follow up support does not constitute a refund as advice has not been implemented.
Refunds are issued for negligence and failure, our consultants are not paid if refunds are issued. Refunds are issued not due to change of mind, change of strategy, failure to be consistent, failure to follow suggestions, or logistical inability to follow the sleep plan.
The 2 weeks of sleep training must be consecutive and not broken by illness or travel. Behavioral changes such as sleep training take time, and will often need 2 consecutive weeks for results.
Our guarantee covers babies over the age of 5 months. (newborn sleep plans are about hands on settling, and creating healthy sleep habits. New-borns need to be gaining 150 grams a week and following a steady growth line for us to intervene with sleep assistance.)
We guarantee we can improve your sleep situation while we work with you one on one. Any time after your follow up support has ended is outside of our control, and therefore our guarantee. You will need to continue to consistently implement any changes suggested by us in order for your success to continue.
We suggest you follow the routine outlined by your consultant, and check any future changes which are needed in the coming months.
Gentle sleep guarantee includes strategies which are not defined as cry it out. We do not guarantee silent settling, and no crying as this is your baby's own behavior and we can not guarantee how they will behave with your chosen strategy. Cry it out is defined as leaving your baby to cry in their room alone, until they fall asleep. Gentle sleep strategies take 2-3 weeks to be completed.
We don't have a one size fits all program we use for one on one consults, with this in mind, know that open communication is the best way to get amazing sleep results from your consultant. The program won't fail you, as we don't have "a program", we have a team of experienced and certified consultants ready and able to come up with strategies and solutions to suit your situation and your family.
We support all parenting styles but reserve the right to inform you we don't think a settling style suits your baby and suggest an alternative, and any suggested changes are not seen as failure or guarantee of a refund.
Any request to refund due to unsuccessful sleep plans need to be requested within 2 days of the original support being finished, as our guarantee only covers your support period.
All refund request documents must be returned within 48 hours.
Any additional support calls offered by the consultant or our team is over and above your initial consultation, and acceptance of this extra support is in lieu of any refund requests.
Please note certain medical conditions will be exempt from our guarantee, these will be explained before you book, these may include conditions such as OSA, ASD, SPD, ADHD, iron decencies, unmediated reflex, or un-diagnosed allergies intolerances or feeding aversions.
Baby Sleep Consultant sleep consultants reserve the right to put support on hold when a medical condition is affecting sleep or is yet to be diagnosed.
Your consultant will go above and beyond to assist you and your family to have a successful outcome, please work with us, communicate clearly, and be honest about you expectations throughout the process.
Your consultant will endeavor to ensure that your requests for routine and sleep training strategies are met, but ultimately your baby may dictate a different approach based on their temperament.
Remember it is always a balance between what we as parents want, and what will successfully work for your child based on their personality, temperament, age, and stage.

Follow up support and consults
Our one week packages (phone, home and overnights), consist of a weeks follow up calls which is usually 4 phone calls of 10-15 minutes as your consultant reviews your sleep logs, makes further suggestions and answers your questions while supporting you in this time.
Follow up calls exceeding 15 minutes will be charged at the consultants follow up rate of $79/hr.
Our two week packages consist of 6 follow up phone calls over the 2 week period, roughly every 48 hours.
Your consultant will endeavor to book your follow up calls following each successful call.
Please note that follow up support can not be pushed out past 1 month of the initial consult.
Emailed logs will be checked by your consultant and either written on, or discussed in the phone call, not both.
Please ensure that you communicate clearly with your consultant clearly to ensure they can deliver the best possible service while you are working on changing your babies sleep patterns.
Online sleep program access to the help desk is only available for customers who have purchased the age appropriate sleep program. Any sharing of documents voids this support access for the original purchaser, and the recipiant.
Online sleep program access to the help desk fair use policy applies. Help desk access is not for daily check ins, sleep log analysis or sleep plan creation. All of these are available via our one on one consultations.
Any extra hours on home consultations will be charged at $79/hr.
All consults purchased, must be booked within 6 weeks of purchase date. Failure to book, will result in a 50% refund, and no consultation.
Your online program includes email access to our sleep consultants via the email address we send you.
This is a fair use policy, and isn't designed for us to evaluate complex sleep logs like we do with one on one consults
We answer questions, guide you to the right part of the program, provide tweaks to what you are doing, and answer questions.
This access is for the duration of the program for the baby or toddler you purchased it for.
Any second children you have will need to have additional support access purchased, this is not life time access.
The program is not designed to be on sent to friends and family. This will result in a ban from email access for both parties involved.
Sharing online programs results in price increases for all as we can't maintain these rates when people share purchased products.
Master Class Access
Master class access is for 12 months. Any additional access will require a re-purchase.
Membership site access
$1 membership trials cancelled before the first monthly payment result in immediate cancellation of access. Only one $1 trial per person, not per email address. Attempts to use multiple email addresses will result in a full month's membership being charged. Sharing access to the membership site will result in membership access being revoked.
