Family Sleep Consultant - Diane Pawsey
I am a certified Maternity nurse and Paediatric sleep consultant. I am proud to have over 25 years of experience working with families with children up to the age of 8 years old…. so not just a Baby sleep consultant.I’m Passionate about helping families reach THEIR sleep goals as experience has taught me that all families are different.
Are you fed up with Should’s?
Are you tired of being told how your baby SHOULD be sleeping through the night? Are you fed up with people telling you, you SHOULDN’T rock your baby to sleep? Are you confused about conflicting advise?As a sleep consultant my aim is to help YOU find the optimal sleep outcome for YOUR baby.
My Approach is a holistic one, I use only evidenced based and age appropriate methods, to help you gently guide your child to snoozeville. To achieve this I don’t use ‘Cry it out methods’, only sleep methods that are science based…..it’s all about biology baby!
I would always encourage you to respond to your baby supporting them to sleep in a loving and responsive way. As you know young babies aren’t able to sleep all night without feeding or comfort. However if your little one is waking every 45mins to feed or your toddler is getting up numerous times in the middle of the night, or nap times are non-existent, whatever the situation is …. I will write a personalised sleep plan that works for your family, even if sleeping through the night isn’t your goal.
‘But I’ve tried everything’
I hear you say…. I understand your skepticism. That’s why my process involves you sharing your sleep story with me BEFORE we work together. If I don’t think I can help you (don’t worry this is rare!!) I’ll be honest with you. That’s why my success rate is high.
But don’t take my word for it…. read my reviews.
Every living creature needs sleep. It is the primary activity of the brain during early development. Circadian rhythms , or the sleep-wake cycle, are regulated by light and dark and these rhythms take time to develop, resulting in the irregular sleep schedules of newborns. The rhythms begin to develop at about six weeks, and by three to six months most infants have a regular sleep-wake cycle.
By the age of two, most children have spent more time asleep than awake and overall, a child will spend 40 percent of his or her childhood asleep. Sleep is especially important for children as it directly impacts mental and phsyical development
Diane held our hands & guided us through. When our daughter turned 6 months old her sleep routine changed overnight. All of a sudden she wouldn’t settle and woke on average every 3 hours. After 4 weeks of sleep deprivation I contacted Diane. She talked …Read More
I contacted Diane when our 15 month old daughter was still getting up in the night for 3 bottle feeds and then waking at 5am for the day. I also couldn’t get her to nap in the day without taking her for a walk or …Read More
