What Method Does Your Sleep Training Program Follow?


We use a collection of methods based on the sleep diary and information that you provide. Once we have been through your online form and sample sleep diary, we will then know what the initial recommendations would be. We would not have a client do anything that they are not comfortable doing and your parenting style will always be taken into consideration during this process of sleep training your baby or toddler. Provided that your expectations are realistic, and you can commit to a program and change. We understand that this is a daunting process and your confidence in executing these changes is important to us.




Is It Ever Too Late For Sleep Training?


No, it is never too late. Sleep training is the same as any behaviour modification technique. You can always make changes, but the baby/toddler’s age will determine what the best method to use is and how long the process will take. Even adults can make changes to their sleeping habits if they tried and went about making the changes the right way. On average children who are under the age of 2, take around 3 weeks to get their sleep modified, children over the age of 2, often take longer - closer to 6 weeks.




How Long Will It Take For The Baby Sleep Plan To Work?


Until you start, you have no idea how you or your baby/toddler will respond to the changes. Although most habits take three weeks to change, some children will complete their sleep training in a shorter period of time and others may take longer. The plan that we give you will be the plan that we believe is best for you situation. Once you start, you will have to check in with us to see if it is working the way that we would expect it to. If something does not look right, then we would have you change the plan. We do not guarantee a plan, but will guarantee that we will work with you to the best of our knowledge so that you reach the goals that you set out to achieve; provided that they are reasonable, realistic and achievable.




What Is The Best Age To Start Sleep Training?


Babies usually need to keep one feed until they weigh close to 14lbs (6.3 kg). At this weight, they typically have the ability to sleep through the night with one feed. However, babies under 12 lbs (6.3 kg) can still be taught to fall asleep. The baby would need an extra feed over night.
