Simple Steps To Better Sleep
Do these sound familiar to you?
My baby will only catnap for 30 min!
My baby will only sleep on me!
My baby is waking frequently at night, but before they were sleeping through the night!
These are common questions I get asked. Babies in the first 2 weeks often feed and sleep lots and I mean lots.
This is very normal.
As your baby grows and develops, sleep requirements change.
Falling asleep in your arms, feeding to sleep or using tools to help settle your baby can become more challenging at this time.
These tools when used frequently can become sleep associations, or what I call patterns. While these may have worked when your baby was small, they may now be more of hinderance. They may encroach on you and your baby’s sleep, your ability have time for you and can also put strain on relationships.
This ebook will help you recognise these patterns and change them gently in your own time.
Trish came to my place to help me sort out my 4-month-olds sleeping patterns. He was waking up multiple times in the night for no apparent reason and it was not sustainable for him or I and I was becoming sleep deprived and not able to function properly. She took the time to chat to me getting to know the situation and a plan was made. I now have the confidence to know what to do when he wakes and he is sleeping really well and a much happier baby because of it. I cannot recommend you enough Trish, you have helped us tremendously. Thanks for being very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable
I would highly recommend working with Trish if you have any issues with your babies sleep. From talking with Trish over the phone for an hour it gave us the confidence and tools to help teach our daughter to self settle without leaving her to cry it out. She’s a much happier kid for it and I really appreciate how Trish has gone above and beyond to answer any further questions I do have.
I had been recommended by a close friend to contact Trish for any troubles I had that were baby related so I did exactly that once my newborn twins were born. Within the first 10 days, my husband and I were having difficulty settling both babies, our little girl in particular. Trish was fantastic! She came over to our place and gave us some great advice and suggestions then put her wonderful knowledge to good use. With the techniques she used on our babies, they instantly became very settled and went to sleep easily. Our twins are almost one month and I am still using Trish’s settling techniques. She has even helped with winding issues that are now under control. Trish has this amazing aura about her that is very calming. Perfect for settling babies! She has given me so much confidence and I feel I can now be the mother I’ve always wanted to be. I would recommend Trish in a heartbeat!
Working with Trish has been so valuable in establishing breastfeeding for my second child. After a stressful experience with my first baby, I decided to be as prepared as possible with feeding my second baby. I found Trish on Facebook and really liked her style- practical, common sense and positive. We had a hospital and home visit with follow up contact at anytime. Trish’s approach was really helpful, especially when you just want clear advice. I’m beyond happy that our son is thriving and have had such a positive experience this time around. Take some time to invest in good support in advance. Thanks Trish!
