1. Why Choose a Precious Moments Babeez Sleep Consultants over another?
Sleep Trainers are popping up everywhere...be careful! Its important to understand that a traditional doula is not trained to offer Sleep Training Support to families. Although some may have basic sleep skills, this does not qualify them to offer consultations on Sleep Nurturing or Sleep Training. It is also important to acknowledge that some consultants have only taken an online course for sleep training and have never worked in the field with babies and young children. There are many physiological and psychological practices that must be understood about human nature and sleep before even attempting to sleep train a baby or there could be serious harm done. Debbie Fazio has worked with babies’ hands on, in home for over 13 years.

2. How do we Implement a good sleeping schedule and routine for our new born?
The best way to start this is by making sure you create a great sleep foundation. Ensuring that baby’s' room is conducive to sleep, a proper feed and sleep schedule has been established, ensuring great feeds throughout the day and a routine that will help facilitate key messages of sleep for your little one.
3. What do we need to know about setting up the nursery for better sleeping?
Safe sleep space is most important. Ensure the use of a proper updated crib, no thick or loose bedding and free from and toys or blankets. Room should range between 18-22 degrees and the use of a swaddle or sleep sack are ideal depending on skill of your baby. Its also great to have a blackout curtain with a night light to help control the room environment and increase melatonin. And lastly, my favourite tool, a white noise machine which should be used for all sleeps.
