Sleep Consulting Services
Are you struggling with sleep deprivation? Is it affecting your relationships, job, and health? Are you worried your baby isn’t getting enough brain boosting, restorative sleep? Our sleep experts create customized plans and use the gentlest methods to bring balance and a good night’s sleep back to your family.
We have a variety of consulting packages to fit all your needs including in-home, phone, video chat, and email consultations. You can have a Sleep Consultant come to your home for as little as a few hours, a few days, or even a few weeks to improve your baby’s sleep habits.
Hourly in-home consulting is a great option for families who are ready for more sleep, but have a limited budget or are looking for DIY option. A two-hour minimum is required to reserve this service. For babies under 3 months of age or when we are working with twins or triplets, a 3-hour visit is recommended.
Each consult begins with an assessment and includes a basic written plan, demo of techniques, tips for success, and answers to all your questions. Additional fees apply for clients outside our service radius.

overnight & 24/7:
Overnight and 24/7 in-home sleep consultations are perfect for parents who have tried it on their own and are still struggling to help their little ones with healthy sleep habits. The consultant will work with you and your baby overnight or around the clock. She will observe and assess, then implement a custom sleep plan that fits your family’s preferences.
In addition to sleep, we cover nutrition, cognitive and motor skill development, age-appropriate play, reducing environmental toxins, and tips for teething and common illnesses while maintaining healthy sleep. Your sleep coach will also manage the baby’s care throughout the night, giving parents a rejuvenating night of sleep (after a much-needed date night out). During the day, your sleep coach will observe and assist with your daytime routine.
For successful sleep training of older babies (6 months+), we recommend booking at least three to five consecutive nights. For younger babies, we will provide a custom quote. Additional fees apply for clients outside our service radius.

frequently asked questions:
Our home office is in Dallas, Texas, but all of our services are available throughout the United States and abroad.
Most new parents would like their new baby to have predictable naps and good night-time sleep, but this can often be an elusive goal for parents. The most common request we get is for sleep training. This involves working with the baby’s natural patterns as well as establishing good habits with a predictable routine. “Sleep training” is not synonymous with “crying”.
For those parents interested in achieving a full night of sleep, our gentle methods will ensure a well-fed, well-rested, happy baby.
Our methods are gentle and follow a baby’s nature circadian rhythm. We do not use the “cry it out” method of sleep training for babies under 4 months old, but a more effective method involving a proactive approach. We encourage parents to listen to their baby and provide a predictable pattern of schedule and response. Older babies may require a small, healthy amount of crying to achieve optimum sleep habits.
Not only do we work with nursing mothers, but we support and assist nursing moms. Of course, we also work with and support those moms who are bottle feeding or plan to use a combination of breast and bottle.
Once nursing is well established, most Newborn Specialists prefer to have the nursing mother pump in addition to nursing, so she can bottle-feed expressed milk at night, giving Mom more rest. If you prefer to exclusively nurse your baby, we will match you with the appropriate caregiver.
Most baby care books say that sleeping through the night amounts to 5 or 6 hours and many methods involve “crying it out” with the promise of results when the baby is 4 months of age or older. We think that’s crazy!
With the Gibson method, many full-term, healthy babies will sleep 6-8 hours a night by 6 weeks of age and 10-12 hours a night by 12 weeks of age. Every baby is different, but with our magic methods your little one should be sleeping through the night somewhere between 6 and 12 weeks of age.
