The Doze Ethos
Reassurance about what’s normal.
If you spend one minute on the internet, you’ll come across a pile of unrealistic expectations for babies’ sleep. When in fact, it really is quite normal for babies to struggle with their sleep. Letting go of unrealistic expectations can make a huge difference!
Sleep made simple.
At the heart of it, sleep follows quite a logical pattern. Our children can only sleep a certain number of hours, and the best way to create a routine is to base it off these needs. You’ll never get a generic routine off me, and I also won’t terrify you with talk of overtiredness.
Practical and evidence-based advice.
I have helped families with every sleep issue under the sun, including early rising, split nights, bedtime battles, frequent wakes, moving away from bed sharing and night weaning. All without ever leaving a baby to cry alone.
MY approach & Methods
All of the methods I recommend are responsive and attachment-friendly. Whilst I can never promise there will be no tears, I can promise that you will always be able to respond to these tears. It is my firm belief that a child should never be left alone whilst crying.
