A specialist Sleep Consultant is different from a night nanny. Whereas a night nanny will provide support and care during nighttime hours, for any age of the child, a Sleep Consultant offers specialised support and guidance to help you achieve a better sleep experience for your child. And yourselves!
We help families enjoy better sleep
Sleep success happens when you buy into a solution that is practical, easily implemented on repeat, and that fills you with positivity. You can snuggle, breastfeed, babywear, rock your baby, and co-sleep while still setting up a solid sleep foundation.
We are dedicated to your happiness, and your health, by helping you to enjoy good sleep.
Babies less than 6mo
The newborn phase
At Happy Nest, we don’t support sleep training for babies younger than 6 months of age. However, we hate the idea of a mum and dad struggling, desperate for help, without support. Because we understand that no matter the age, it’s all hard. If you are struggling with sleep, and your baby is younger than 6 months, we are here for you too.
Our expert Sleep Consultants will take you from wondering if you’ll ever sleep again, to loving the newborn stage.
It’s no surprise that as parents to a new baby, things are hard. Everything is new and it’s easy to feel insecure and unprepared. Especially when it comes to setting healthy sleep foundations for your ever-changing baby. A lot happens in those first 6 months!
Whether it’s a friendly phone call that talks you through strategies and advice to help you navigate the transitional phase of the 4th trimester. Or an in-person consultation with you and your baby to receive tips on how to make small changes that have a big impact, help is not far away.
We believe no parent should feel at a loss about what to do to help you and your baby get a good night’s sleep.
A Happy Nest Sleep Consultant will help you to:
- Read your baby’s cues
- Calm a fussy baby
- Approach nap times without fear
- Set a positive routine that will set you up for the next 6+ months
- Love the newborn phase!
The baby months
Is your little one causing sleep havoc? A healthy sleep foundation for your baby is achievable.
If your nights are rough, or your naps are a mess, you may easily feel frustrated, exhausted and completely overwhelmed or unsure about how to fix the situation.
If your own sleep patterns are falling apart, your baby just won’t sleep, or you’re not sure what comes next as your baby approaches new developmental stages with weaning, teething and crawling, then you’re in the right place.
We help babies sleep, so that both of you can be in a better state to enjoy quality wake time together, time that’s especially precious when your baby is so little.
Often a sleep consultant can immediately identify small changes in your routine that could have a huge benefit to your life.
If bedtime is a constant battle or your baby is needing you all night, rest assured that you can achieve a healthy sleep balance for your family without wavering on your values. And you don’t have to succumb to methods that don’t sit right with you.
Sometimes it’s the simplest changes that make all the difference. A Sleep Consultant will assess your situation first hand, from an objective viewpoint. By observing you and listening to your personal needs they tailor solutions specifically for your individual requirements.
A Happy Nest Sleep Consultant can help you to:
- Create a healthy sleep foundation
- Establish developmentally appropriate wake windows
- Implement a gentle sleep routine that feels right for you and your baby
- Set up a nap schedule that works for your daily life
- Use weaning and activity to support good sleep
- Approach leaps and sleep regressions with ease
Toddlers and beyond
The defiant years
Does the thought of bedtime fill you with dread?
Perhaps you’ve fallen victim to using sleep crutches you told yourself you’d never use.
Maybe you spend your evenings negotiating with little people who should’ve been asleep hours ago. And at the end of it, you wonder where and how you went “wrong”.
When it comes to improving infant sleep, it can feel like a monumental effort is required to make any positive changes. When you’re in the thick of it, it’s difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.
We understand that navigating bedtime with growing little people isn’t easy.
A Happy Nest Sleep Consultant can help you overcome the sleep challenges you face as your child continues to grow and develop. Even if you’ve always had a great sleeper, the slightest change in your routine or lifestyle can rock the boat and leave a wake of destruction in its path. Before things get out of hand, know that support to get your baby back to sleep is available.
Struggling with rough naps and restless nights? It’s time to take your nights from exhausting, to restful. Get in touch for personalised genuine care to support and overcome your infant’s sleep challenges.
