the experts weigh in on training baby to sleep better
we asked the professionals at Infant Sleep Consultants to divulge all their better sleep secrets and baby sleep training methods
Infant Sleep Consultants was set up to provide expert advice for parents struggling on how to put a baby to sleep to get their little ones to sleep. the program is run by three highly experienced and qualified professionals, each with over twenty years’ experience of working with families on a one-to-one basis. we do not have a "one solution fits all" approach as we know every child is different, but work with the parents to create a tailor-made plan that they can manage and one which takes into account the needs of the child and expectations of each family. we have learnt that the key to success is consistency, so know that if it feels manageable, they are going to be able to stick at it! during the course of our careers, we found that although there was much guidance offering parents support through pregnancy, birth and those first tentative weeks of finding your feet, as the babies/children got older, the gentle support that parents had become reliant on had started to evaporate and they were exhausted from many weeks and sometimes months of broken sleep.
