Are you…

Pregnant and worried about your baby’s sleep… cause everyone has told you you’ll never sleep again.

Overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice on google, facebook & in mother’s groups.

Wondering what 2 hours sleep in a row would actually feel like again.

Beyond tired and in the depth’s of sleep deprivation

At a loss as to what to do next with your toddler at bedtime.

 

Believe me, I’ve been there, this was me. 

I resisted sleep training because I thought it meant lots of crying and shutting the door on my child when they needed me.

I wish I knew then what I know now, I could have saved myself the tears and frustration.

How I work

As a holistic sleep consultant, I’ll help you discover the cause of your child’s sleep challenge.  If we don’t know why it’s happening, we can’t fix it.  So, we’ll look at:

Your child’s temperament, age, developmental stage and emotional wellbeing as well as nutrition, sleep environment & routine. 

Your parenting style, family dynamic and sleep goals for your child

How a sleep support package works

  1. I gather detailed information about your child, their sleep issues and your sleep goals.
  2. I gift you a Sleep App and you begin tracking your child’s sleep.
  3. We have a face-to-face or Skype consultation (1-2 hours).
  4. I provide you with a personalised sleep plan and talk you through the steps. 
  5. I support you with phone calls, in-app messaging and email support for 3 weeks*
  6. You receive a ‘next steps’ plan at the end of our support period.

Why work with me?

Your child and your household are unique so a one-size-fits-all approach to sleep just doesn’t work.   With a tailor-made plan and guidance along the way, I’ll help you improve sleep for your family and achieve your sleep goals. 

I’m supportive of breastfeeding, bottle feeding, bed-sharing, co-sleeping and independent sleep and have helped families all over the world with their sleep challenges.  I’m trained, certified, experienced & have walked in your shoes (I have 3 children myself).

I’m the right sleep consultant for you if you want to

Improve your child’s sleep by setting up a great sleep environment.

Follow your child’s cues as well as their natural sleep development.

Ensure your child’s well-being is at the forefront of any decisions you make.

Be mindful of nutrition and learning how this can play a role (positive & negative).

Try self-settling or independent sleep but aren’t sure how or when to do it to get success.

Look forward to your child’s sleep time and not dread it. 

Work within your parenting values and philosophy. 

Make positive changes to your child’s sleep.

Swaddling & settling your newborn.

What parents say

  • Carla took the time to really understand where we were at with our daughters’ sleep as well as helping us to better understand their sleep needs. She put together a detailed and practical plan that was personally tailored to us and we saw great improvement very quickly. We highly recommend Carla if you need to get your family’s sleep back on track.

  • Fergus was an excellent newborn sleeper so when we hit four month sleep regression, leap four and a growth spurt in one hit we really felt it! By 4.5 months Ferg was waking 1.5-2 hourly overnight and catnapping during the day and I would often have to feed him to sleep. We were exhausted and anxious. Carla’s support was invaluable – her holistic, educational approach meant that we learned why Ferg’s sleep patterns were changing and were well equipped to support him and each other through his transition. We’re confident we can successfully navigate future transitions and I’m happy to say Fergus is now self-settling, has transitioned successfully to un-swaddled sleeping and is an all round happier baby!  Thanks Carla!

  • I honestly can’t thank you enough for your support through this. I was very nervous to reach out for help with his sleep as there is no way I could have let him cry and after the experience with my first child I thought this could be what I was told. You have absolutely helped in creating a much less stressful bedtime for us.

  • Thank you Carla for helping me understand and learn about my little boy, Liam’s sleep, particularly what is considered “normal and average” and what developments to expect in coming months.

    I think it is important for mums and dads out there to realise that you don’t only have to wait until you are in crisis with a baby that is not sleeping to call on someone with your expertise, but that it is invaluable to work with you early on to learn and develop strategies for future success.

    Although my baby already sleeps well at night, you helped me with creating positive sleep associations in regards to daytime naps and to help create a bit more of a routine. Liam’s daytime routine and length of naps have already improved and more importantly, I feel much more confident and equipped after working with you.

    Thank you for the caring and professional manner in which you approached our work together. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in helping their babies develop healthy sleep associations and habits.

  • Carla helped us establish an age appropriate routine for our daughter who has gone from overtired and unsettled, to a happy and developing 4-month old. She taught us gentle methods that both my husband and I can implement, which has reduced the time it takes to get her to settle for naps and bedtime.

     

    Thanks again
