Teresa Boardman, who provides this specialist service, is a candidate with over 30+ years’ knowledge and experience working with new-borns and children of all ages. She has therefore gained a broad experience of children within different family setups.
Sleep deprivation causes innumerable problems to both parents and baby alike and takes away from what should be a special time for a family.
If there are any sleeping problems in your child’s routine, Teresa’s advice to parents is to keep a detailed diary for 3 to 4 days. This diary should include all activities in their day to day lives, looking at the amount of milk your child is drinking and how much solid food they are eating, to what kinds of activities they are involved in, and so on.

The family is requested to keep a detailed diary on their baby or child’s day for a minimum of 3 to 4 days. A consultation is organised with our specialist, after which a course of action will be recommended and a tailor made programme set in place. Usually elements of both day and night routine need adjusting.
As any parent knows, the lack of sleep during the night for both child and parent can be overwhelming, thus disrupting daily activities. At this point, a sleep trainer is organised to come into the family home. Normally this is done over 3 to 4 nights, with a 12 hour shift each night. Parents are guided through the tools that are required to facilitate baby or child settling in their own bed and remaining there for the night.
Baby is never left to “cry it out”, parents are present throughout, thus restoring in them the confidence that is needed to maintain the good habits.
