No Milk Like Mama’s® Holistic Sleep Coaching & Sleep Support is available in home in Norwich, Norfolk & Suffolk & worldwide via online consultation.
Holistic Sleep Coaching Support is provided by Sian Aldis, IBCLC & Holistic Sleep Coach.
Many families are consumed with worries around their child’s sleep. Holistic Sleep Support offers 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.
As an IBCLC your sleep consultant has the additional skills to assess your sleep concerns with expert knowledge in infant feeding and behaviours.
Sleep consultant support is available for a wide range of concerns and ages of child, including (but not limited to):
- Early rising
- Nap timings
- Bedtime battles
- Night time strategies
- Night weaning (12-18 months+)
- Overview of your sleep situation
