If you are planning to start a new sleep routine with your baby or changing something with your baby’s sleep routine it can be a good idea to make a sleep star chart.  This has helped in many case where I have consulted with parents in removing night time bottles or stopped giving the baby a soother/dodi.  A few days before you are going to change the baby’s sleep routine tell them what is going to happen.  Make a big fuss over what rewards they will receive when they get a star – like a small treat.  Spend time with them making the star chart, colouring it in, adding stickers an so on.  Also, have a bigger reward after maybe 3 days and an even bigger reward for a full successful week.  Don’t set out a target of a full week for your infant as it is simply too long for them to comprehend and after a couple of successful nights they may give-up and return to their old routine.  Children really want your time so the big reward could be going to the park for a afternoon one-on-one and getting an ice-cream.

Testimonials

Here is what Baby Sleep Academy customers had to say:

Hilda & Robbi

Hilda & Robbi

Before we met Edel were we completely exhausted and at our wits end, up every night at least 7 times with our son. Within about 10 days Dylan was happy in his cot and slept 12 hours straight! We couldn't speak more highly of Edel and she was such a fantastic person to deal with.*

Without Edel’s help and support I know I certainly wouldn’t be in a home with two very happy & content boys that sleep all night and thrive on their routine each day. She always understood how I felt. We would highly recommend Edel as a baby sleep consultant – she’s amazing!!*

I had no time to myself the entire day and despite being a new Mom and being told that this time was unpredictable I knew in my gut that it was wrong. We put our faith in Edel’s expertise in terms of sleep and we weren't disappointed. With the constant doubt we felt as new parents she was able to point us in the right direction.*
