Background Information
This program is developed to teach parents the methodology of sleeping through the night by supporting self-soothing abilities in their babies. This methodology depends on ‘controlled crying’ combined with gradual extinction strategies, a unique, effective, and secure method of teaching babies to sleep through the night according to institutions like Harvard Medical School and the Australian Department for Health. Our sleep training program involves a one-hour-long online session with parents in which sleep habits and patterns of the child are discussed and a plan to solve the sleep problem is put forward and, also 10 to 12 days of follow-up with the family through daily phone calls and/or WhatsApp texting. After sleep-training of the baby is completed, an e-mail is sent to the family to explain how to sustain good day and night`s sleep in the following months and years. In case the family has questions regarding sleep in the following months, they can contact us freely.
