Frequently asked questions
What methods do you use?
We use a range of settling methods! We understand that each parent has their own parenting style, that is why we encourage you to choose a technique that you believe is best suited to your little ones temperament, and what you know you will be 100% consistent with. We are more than happy to support you to implement which ever method you choose. We will never make you do something that doesn’t feel right to you, but we also will be honest and tell you if we do not feel a particular method will suit your little one, or if a particular way of doing something will work best for your little ones age or personality.
How long will it take to see results?
This largely depends on your little one’s temperament, family’s consistency and how long the issues have been going on for. Typically, we see significant improvements in the first 3-5 days of starting a new settling technique. It can take up to 14 days to make long-term changes for night sleep and around 2-3 weeks for daytime sleep depending on the settling technique chosen and ability to wean off their current sleep associations.
I don't want to get rid of their dummy, is that okay?
Yes of course. If it is not a problem and working for your little one, that is perfectly ok. We personalise a sleep assessment and plan for your little one and take into consideration what you as parent’s want and your desired sleep outcome.
What happens if my little one gets sick or is teething?
If your little one becomes unwell during the process, then it would be recommended to put your plan on hold until we felt they were medically ok to continue. However, minor coughs and colds are not too much cause for concern, and neither is teething. Teething often gets a bad rap for poor sleeping patterns. As little one’s teeth for the first 2 years of their life, we do not want to hold off improving their sleep as it can be very unpredictable when they will actually come through.
Can I purchase a gift voucher?
Yes 100%. The gift of sleep is priceless! Please send us an email and we can get this arranged for you.
