What to expect during the in-home consultation:
Day 1: I begin by observing the dynamics around your infant and getting to know your infant’s personality. My approach is respectful and intuitive to ensure that your baby or child is comfortable with my presence. This is also an ideal time to offer you some information arouand the science of sleep in infants. Throughout the night, your little one will be in safe, highly experienced hands as I continue to observe your infant so that, according to my observations, I can fine-tune the details of your chosen plan.
Day 2: I will guide your infant through the adjustments that favour healthy sleep and development ie dietary requirements, sleep and playtime activities etc. In the evening, I will begin the tailor-made sleep plan. I will keep a diary of events so that I can meet with you the following day to inform you of your infant’s progress and discuss any core concerns. If you prefer to observe quietly through the night that’s perfectly alright.
Day 3: Throughout the day I will encourage your infant to adapt to a sleep friendly routine and explain why it is important for your infant’s physical and mental development. I will answer questions your as they arise and I may even introduce some fun activities which encourage healthy mental and cognitive development.
Day 4: Today is the day that, under my gentle guidance, you or your nanny will practice the techniques that will have been demonstrated to you. This is a concentrated learning day for all concerned.
Day 5: Now that you have learned the foundations for correcting the initial concerns you had, I will take a temporary step out of the home for 24 hours to allow you to continue the sleep and feeding plan to see how you get on.
Day 6: I return to see how you have managed and to answer any questions or make adjustments according to the feedback you will have given me.
Day 7: This day allows for your infant to adjust to any changes at his own pace and to maintain continuity of the plan. By now you should see some signs of progress in your little one, whether this is sleep or feeding or both. On the last evening, whilst your infant is sleeping peacefully in bed, I will request about 30 minutes of your time to review the plan and give you some useful tips regarding common issues around sleep that may affect your infant in the future including teething, developmental leaps, travel and jetlag. This night, you or your nanny will continue to consolidate your infant’s sleep plan. I am now ‘on call’ whilst you or your nanny is fully responsible for your little ones care.
Day 8: I will be sad to leave you, but happy knowing that your little one will continue to make significant progress whilst you consistently follow the advised plan.
Text support: I will stay in touch with you for up to 3 weeks to follow the progress that is being made and to answer your questions.
