The idea of a baby sleep consultant is a relatively new concept. A lot of people have heard the term “baby sleep consultant” but have no idea what we actually do or how we can help you. Here are a few common questions I am asked about being a baby sleep consultant.
The benefit of having a baby sleep consultant come to you is that your child stays in their own environment the whole time and you get follow up so you’re never left in the lurch.
What does a Baby Sleep Consultant Actually do?
Baby sleep consultants basically help and guide parents with sleep issues from newborns – 5 years. We can help parents who need help settling a fussy newborn, right through to toddlers who are waking multiple times during the night. Any issue you may be having with your little one’s sleep, we can help. Of course, all baby sleep consultants are different in their approach and what packages they offer. Here at CQ Sweet Dreams I offer multiple packages to suit every situation and budget and it’s an extremely personalised experience to help get you and your little ones sleeping well. I also offer 3 weeks follow up support with all packages so you’ll never be left in the lurch. (View Packages)
Won’t a Baby Sleep Consultant just make my baby “cry it out’?
A lot of people think that by hiring a baby sleep consultant you will just get told to let you baby “cry it out”. This is not the case at all (well certainly not here anyway). At CQ Sweet Dreams I use a range of techniques that I talk about with my clients during our session and we choose together which settling technique best fits you and your child.
Sleep School vs. a baby sleep consultant?
Sleep schools are also gaining more interest and becoming a more sought-after thing. There are many great sleep schools out there who have helped many families however the benefit of having a baby sleep consultant come to you is that your child stays in their own environment the whole time and you get a few weeks follow up so you’re never left in the lurch. Each situation has their pros and cons but that is one of the biggest benefits I find to an in-home consultant.
