Frequently Asked Questions

Are your programs suitable if I want to continue co-sleeping with my child?

No they’re not. The reason for this is we don’t have any training in safe co-sleeping guidelines, and would never provide advice that could prove harmful to your child. However, our programs are suitable for room-sharing, and we can offer some great advice on ways to do this effectively while seeing all the benefits of our plans.

Do you work with twins/multiples?

Yes. Kate also works with siblings. Get in touch to find out more.

When is it a good time to start a sleep programme for my child?

It’s never too early or too late to introduce better sleep methods into your child’s routine. If you have already tried other sleep training methods and are still experiencing difficulties, then it is an excellent time to start.

Where do you work?

Kate is based in London and Geneva, however she has clients across Europe, Switzerland and even Australia.

Which package is right for me?

You will get a free initial 15 minute phone consultation with Kate which involves an in depth discussion about your issues. She will then suggest which package would be appropriate for you and your child.

Why can’t I do this myself?

There is so much conflicting material out there from the internet, books, television and listening to different people’s advice. It can make it extremely difficult to know what to do. This is when it is helpful having an experienced professional to help guide you.

Long periods of sleep deprivation can cloud your judgement and make change difficult to implement. A good sleep consultant is there to guide you through this process and encourage you when things get difficult.

Will I have to leave my baby to cry it out?

No, we do not use or advocate cry it out as a sleep guidance method. Change can be initially unsettling for anyone so it is normal for children to cry out of protest. We never encourage the parent to be absent for long periods of time, nor will we ask you to ignore their cries. The reason that our sleep programme is so effective is that it allows you develop a plan that you feel comfortable with, based on what you know about your child.

Will I have to stop breastfeeding?

No, we support your preferred feeding style, which could include breast, formula or combination feeding.

Will you come and do it for us?

Kate will support you throughout the programme, however it is important you carry out the work yourselves and be consistent with it. Empowering you is important. It will give you the confidence and knowledge to use these skills as your child grow and needs change. It doesn’t need to stop there, you can also transfer these skills to other carers such as babysitters and grandparents. Kate does offer at home services if you feel that support in your own home is what you need. Please note this is only available locally. For more information get in touch.
