What to expect during the in-home consultation:
Day 1: Suzy arrives early afternoon and begins by observing the overall dynamics around your infant as well as your infant’s unique personality. Her approach is respectful and intuitive to ensure that your baby or child is relaxed with her. This is also an ideal time to show you some sleep science in infants. Throughout the night, your little one will be in Suzy’s safe, highly experienced hands as she continues to observe your infant so that the following morning, according to her observations, she can ‘fine-tune’ the details of your chosen plan with you.
Day 2: Suzy guides your infant through the adjustments that favour healthy sleep and development ie dietary requirements, sleep and playtime activities, etc. In the evening, she will begin the refined tailor-made sleep plan. Suzy will keep a diary of events so that she can meet with you the following day to inform you of your little ones’ progress and discuss any core concerns. If you prefer to stay with Suzy and observe through the night Suzy respects this.
Day 3: Throughout the day Suzy will encourage your little one to adapt to a sleep-friendly routine and explain why it is important for your infant’s physical and mental development. She will answer questions as they arise and she may even introduce some fun activities which encourage healthy mental and cognitive development.
Day 4: Today is the day that, under Suzy’s gentle guidance, you or your nanny will practice the techniques that will have been demonstrated to you. This is an intense learning day for all concerned.
Day 5: Now that you have learned the foundations for correcting the initial concerns, Suzy will take a temporary step out of the home for 24 hours. You will continue the sleep and feeding plan to see how it works for you and your little one.
Day 6: Suzy returns to see how you have managed and to answer any questions or make adjustments according to the feedback you will have given her.
Day 7: This day allows your little one to adjust to any changes at a steady pace and maintains continuity of the plan. By now you should see some initial signs of progress, whether this is sleep or feeding or both. On the last evening, whilst your infant is sleeping peacefully in bed, Suzy requests about 30 minutes of your time to review the plan and give you some useful tips regarding common issues around sleep that may affect your infant in the future including teething, developmental leaps, travel, and jetlag. You or your nanny will continue to consolidate your infant’s sleep plan overnight. Suzy will now be ‘on-call’ just in case she is needed to answer further questions.
Day 8: Suzy will leave you knowing that your little one will continue to make significant progress whilst you consistently follow the advised plan.
Text support: Suzy stays in touch with you for up to 3 weeks to follow the progress that is being made and to answer your questions.
