Choose the package that suits your level of need. Upon payment, you will receive a detailed client questionnaire that provides you the opportunity to explain your child’s daily routine and sleep issues. Once you send the completed form back, we analyze it and may ask further follow up questions. You will then receive your customized sleep plan and are given the chance to review it and ask any clarifying questions. The day you begin the plan is the day that your support begins.

You need to be able to commit to follow a plan for a significant amount of time, in order to see progress.
Yes! There are many different ways to sleep train a child. That’s the short answer.

CIO is a term that means different things to different people. Whether you are referring to “Ferberizing” or “extinction”, both methods involve leaving the child’s room, at least for a few minutes.
If you are looking for something a bit more gentler, or to stay in the room with the child, then we have several options. However, please note, that none of them can guarantee no crying at all.When we begin to change the way a child has fallen asleep for several months, the usually show some protest.

If you are having a hard time getting your child to sleep through the night or to take restorative naps, then chances are, you are tired! And when you’re tired it’s hard to figure out a plan and to stick to it. A sleep consultant is an experienced, objective, yet compassionate person whom you can turn to, to answer questions and seek advice. They help you see the big picture, figure out a solution that works for you and support you through the process.
We believe in helping our families in the way that suits them the best. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Yes, there are common elements to many baby and child sleep issues, but all solutions are as unique as the families we help. We believe in being realistic and honest-sleep training takes time, hard work and doesn’t happen overnight. But we listen to you and formulate a plan according to your personal parenting style so that you are confident and therefore successful.
