Baby Sleep Specialist: Jen is a Lifesaver

Thank goodness, we found Jen the baby sleep specialist! My 11-month old baby was waking up 10 times a night! He was in my bed and I was up and down all night, having to replace his dummy, sing, pat, and stay with him while he fell asleep. I felt like I spent my entire days and nights trying to put my baby to sleep. It took hours!

Most nights he would wake up to party for at least 2 hour blocks. This then meant he woke up at 9 or 10am. His daily routine was a complete mess, and so were our lives. I dreaded nighttime — how many wakes would there be tonight and for how long? I was terrified and a nervous wreck. I honestly prayed every night for a sleeping miracle to happen.

I took my baby to the Tresillian sleep school for 6 months, but I really did not like how they did things there. There was no explanation on what we were doing or why. I was made to press the buzzer when I needed help. I felt very lost there. I also googled HEAPS of baby sleep settling methods and read heaps about baby sleep in the hope I could try to figure it out on my own. But none of this worked. I knew we needed professional help from a real and professional baby sleep specialist. And that’s how I found Jen.

I was really hesitant at first. Reading all her reviews about how all those babies she worked with slept through the night in just days. I could NEVER imagine my baby sleeping through the night! But I had to give it a try! I mean what have I got to lose? Well, hundreds of dollars. Yes but if it really works, then it’s well worth it!

My baby was co-sleeping and had all of the sleep associations you can imagine (dummy, rocking, feeding to sleep, patting, singing), so Jen suggested we do things really gradually and slowly so it wasn’t too stressful on him. I couldn’t believe it! In just three nights, we started to slowly see little tweaks that made so much difference. Unbelievable!!!

After 3 days, my whole family could see, hear, and feel the difference! Then a week passed, 2 weeks passed and my baby finally slept through the night. Hallelujah, my prayers have finally been answered! My baby who needed a dummy, who was co-sleeping with me on my bed, who I had to constantly sing and pat to sleep now goes to sleep without the dummy, without me singing and patting and in his own cot!

It wasn’t smooth sailing! It was tough. But to me it was short-term pain for long-term gain, and we got there in the end! Jen was patient and supportive all the way through. Thank you Jen. You are a baby sleep specialist lifesaver. Why did I not find you earlier?!

Jennifer is a qualified IMI Maternity and Child Sleep Consultant, Doula and MNT Maternity Nurse. These qualifications enable her to assist pregnant women with their sleep issues, support women during labour and the birthing process, guide parents during the postpartum period and educate families about their baby’s sleeping habits. Jennifer provides safe and gentle sleep training methods based on knowledge obtained during her studies, successful qualifications and 16+ years experience.

Jennifer has obtained her paediatric First Aid Training through KidZAid and is registered to work with babies and children in Australia and Europe. Techniques and methods used are all derived directly from her qualifications and from her many years of experience.

Jennifer’s advice does not replace the advice from your Doctor or Paediatrician, and her advice should not be relied upon as medical advice. For medical advice, you should always seek the advice from your medical practitioner. Therefore, you should consult with your health-care professional should you have any healthcare related questions or before embarking on a new sleep program. If a medical problem appears or persists, do not disregard or delay seeking medical advice from doctor. Accordingly, Jennifer expressly disclaims any liability, loss, damage, or injury caused by information provided to the client.

Jennifer will educate, support you and guide you through the sleep challenges needed to make change in your baby’s sleeping habits. As a Baby Sleep Consultant, Jennifer is not responsible for your application of the sleep solutions once the consultation has concluded. Once the sleep consultation has concluded it is the responsibility of the parent(s) to apply the agreed methods and solutions. Jennifer has an extremely high success rate, however, the success of Jennifer solutions is in the hands of the parents’ commitment & perseverance once the sleep consultation has ended; therefore Jennifer cannot make any guarantees of success. However, Jennifer will use her best endeavours to support you until the desired result has been achieved.

  • I agree to check with my healthcare provider/doctor if my baby has any medical conditions, which prevent them from being trained safely.
  • I agree to follow safe sleeping practices in line with SIDS recommendations (https://rednose.org.au/article/what-is-a-safe-sleeping-environment).
  • I agree to disclose any medical conditions to Jennifer, which my baby has or has had previously.
  • I understand that my customised baby sleep program is meant for my baby only and should not be shared with a third party. I acknowledge the information might not be suitable for another baby.
  • Any changes I make to my baby’s sleeping or eating arrangements are my decision and Jennifer will only make suggestions for change, of which I am responsible for choosing to implement.
  • It is my responsibility to contact Jennifer for my follow up support and send the sleep log information through to be assessed for feedback as frequently as suggested.

 

In-Home Cancellation Policy
To confirm any In-Home Program, the client will be required to pay a 25% non-refundable deposit to secure the booking. The remaining amount of the In-Home Program will be required to be paid on the day after Jennifer leaves your home. Any cancellations barring medical or other emergencies will forfeit the deposit. If  you cancel less than 48 hours before the scheduled visit, the full amount will be required, unless Jennifer can backfill your place with someone on the waiting list.

If your baby is a little under the weather and does not have a temperature, the program can generally proceed as planned. If your baby is sick with a temperature or has been diagnosed with a medical condition by a doctor, the program will be postponed until your baby is better. A doctors certificate may be requested.

Remote Program/Phone Consultation
To confirm the Remote Program or Phone Consultation Jennifer will be required to be paid in full before sleep plans are constructed and the phone consultation takes place.

Remote Program Cancellation policy
The Remote Program and Phone Consultations are non-refundable after the start of sleep work (i.e. when any sleep advice has been delivered to the client via email, text, phone).

Acts of God or suspected medical conditions
If an act of God, such as a fire, flood, earthquake or other natural calamity shall cause you to cancel the sleep services, Jennifer will require payment only for the time actually spent sleep consulting. 

If during the In Home program, Jennifer feels the consultation should cease due to an underlying or undisclosed medical condition, Jennifer will require payment only for the time actually spent in your home. In this case, to keep the situation fair on both parties, the hourly rate is reduced down from the normal sleep consulting fees (as per the program booked) and charged at $50ph. 

Doctor’s appointment
Jennifer requests that every client has an appointment with their doctor to ensure their baby is developmentally on track and fit for sleep training. Written medical approval may be requested for certain circumstances.

Within 25km from Bondi Beach. An additional fee of $25ph travelled will be charged if travel is over 25kms.

As the client, you knowingly and voluntarily agree to waive and release Jennifer from any and all claims of liability or demands for compensation that you may acquire during the time working with Jennifer.
