How does a sleep consultant work?
Well, we can’t speak for other sleep consultants but we’re here to help! Here’s an overview of what happens when you work with us!
If you’re considering a 3, 4, or 6 week support package, let’s chat first. That way we can hear more about what’s going on with your newborn, baby, toddler or young child and get a better idea of the best way to support you, based on an overview of the sleep challenge and your parenting preferences.
Once you’ve chosen and paid for your 3, 4, or 6-week package, we will need to set up the time for our initial meeting. The meeting typically lasts approximately 90 minutes. We will send you an app – Baby Connect – as well as instructions to start recording sleep and more for at least 3-4 days before our initial meeting. You will also receive a detailed questionnaire to complete so we can learn more about history, health, routines, and more. This helps us really prepare for our meeting and have a good idea of a 24-hour day in your home.
Before our meeting you will be sent an agenda – an overview on what we’ll discuss. Of course there will be lots of time to ask questions too.
Our meetings are typically virtual – via phone, Skype, or FaceTime. In-person meetings are also possible for additional fees in Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and Berkshire, England. You will receive tools you can implement immediately. After the meeting, you’ll receive a personalised report – based on our meeting, as well as lots of useful tools to refer to now and in the future.
Over the period of the package you choose, we will get close, with almost daily (5x/week) feedback via the app and scheduled phone calls to discuss next steps.
At the end of your support package, you’ll receive a coupon code to the Sleepy Lambs Sleep Academy. The Academy offers fully comprehensive online, self-paced sleep information, that you may find useful if you hit a regression, have another child with sleep challenges or need a little reminder of all that you’ve learned.
