Newborn sleep changes very quickly in the first 3 months of life. In my approach to handling newborns, this is the time when your baby needs high level of nurturing, bonding and building secure attachment with you.
I don’t recommend starting your baby on any rigid schedule or introduce independent sleep at this stage because their sleep pattern will change again when they hit their sleep maturity around 4 months old. This “4 month old sleep regression” is a permanent one, so that’s when you can start encouraging healthy sleep habits so that the regression does not become a long term sleep issue.
I also feel that nothing that you do now would create “bad habits”. You will not spoil the baby by carrying them all the time for naps, breastfeeding, rocking or soothing them all the way to sleep for example.
If you haven’t already, I suggest you watch my video on What You Need To Know About Newborn Sleep.
Having said that, if you’re still struggling with your newborn’s sleep and would really love to ask personal sleep advice, I offer the following:
“Mini” Consult (RM299)
This package is intended for a family who had just welcomed their newborn and may find it a struggle without additional help from an extended family or confinement lady around sleep.
This package can also be used for families who wish to have 1:1 time to troubleshoot one particular frustration area of their child’s sleep. This is meant for correcting minor sleep issues, and is not a replacement for a full sleep consultation program.
It is also perfect for families who have taken up the full consultation program in the past, and would like to have a another consult session for troubleshooting (used for the same child that we have previously worked with).
This package consists of:
- 1 hour Skype/FaceTime or phone consultation
- Email support – 3 follow up emails to be used the same week
If you are unsure if this package is right for you, please make an enquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org
Update - as at 2nd October 2017The last consultation session availability is by 27 October 2017.
I am due to deliver my baby around mid November and will start my maternity leave starting 28 October 2017 until second week January 2018. During my leave, I will not be offering any consultations.
