Gentle Sleep Support Consultant Options for You & Baby
No Milk Like Mama’s®
Gentle Sleep Support
Many families are consumed with worries around their child’s sleep. No Milk Like Mama’s Gentle Sleep Support consultants offer information on nurturing alternatives to cry-it-out for babies, toddlers and older children, along with an understanding of what is normal for your child and ways to help you cope.
Working with sleep biology, a listening ear and a caring approach, you are supported to reach your goals, whilst keeping your child’s physical and emotional health, and your family, at the heart of any changes or suggestions. My role as your sleep consultant is to work with you to optimise settled sleep whilst increasing your confidence in your parenting and understanding your child’s individual needs.
WHAT ISSUES CAN YOU SUPPORT ME WITH?
Gentle Sleep Support is available for a wide range of concerns and ages of child, including (but not limited to): early rising, nap timings, bedtime, frequent waking, night weaning, overview of your sleep situation & emotional & practical parenting support.
WHAT AGE children DO YOU WORK WITH?
Gentle Sleep Support is available for infants & children from newborn to approximately 8 years old.
The support provided for babies under 6 months will not include overnight sleep strategies to the same degree as older babies or toddlers.
ARE YOUR TECHNIQUES COMPATIBLE WITH BREASTFEEDING ?
Yes, as an infant feeding specialist my gentle sleep support techniques are protective of your Breastfeeding relationship.
Do you use any crying techniques ?
Some techniques used with older babies may involve some resistance from your child, but they are never left to cry unsupported.
Do you have night weaning advice
I work with parents who wish to night-wean from approximately 12-18 months. I can offer support with night wakings from newborn.
I need changes fast! How long until I see results ?
With gentle sleep support, changes may take longer than typical sleep training strategies. The rewards for taking this time will benefit you and your child’s relationship and their long term physical and mental wellbeing.
Whilst I would expect you to see some improvement within 2 weeks, please understand that consistency with what is implemented may be required to see longer term outcomes.
What happens if I need further support?
My sleep coaching service is devised in a way so parents can determine what ongoing support they require, and makes the initial information affordable and accessible to more families.
Further follow-up support calls can be booked at client rates if required.
can you get my child to sleep?
I never promise anyone I will get their child to sleep. Gentle Sleep Support is very different from sleep training. I work collaboratively with parents to develop their own sleep plan following our consultation and determine what they feel will work for their family.
I do not provide traditional sleep training services (such as Cry It Out or similar methods)
as it is not the ethos of my practice.
For a very structured approach tp infant sleep you will find my service
is not what you are looking for.
