Baby Sleep Solutions in Adelaide

We knew twins were going to be hard work. We were a little apprehensive but we had NO idea how stressful two unsettled screaming babies for six to ten hours a night would be (I kid you not.)

If you have ever had an unsettled newborn or even a much older baby who has not managed to get the hang of the sleep thing, you are not alone and help is available. If you have googled all the symptoms and strategies, read the contradicting advice on numerous internet sites, read every calm baby sleep book that your well-meaning friends have recommended to you but have not seen results, perhaps it is time to get some professional help.

There are a few options available to you before you employ a sleep consultant to soothe your stressed babe.

Child and Youth Health offer day sessions to look at the holistic eat, play, sleep structure to see if there are any obvious areas for focus while also teaching gentle settling techniques to assist with sleep. You can contact your local office and request a consulting session.

Torrens House is a government funded service on South Terrace supporting parents and babies with feeding and sleeping complications. A three and a half day stay is free of charge with meals provided and most importantly you have dedicated nurses who work closely with you to identify key issues and provide practical and emotional support along with a group of other parents all facing the same daunting challenges. Torrens House is only open to those referred by their paediatrician or Child and Youth Health nurse so ask about this service and if it is available to you.

Private Sleep Consultants
Listed below are some of the sleep consultants based in Adelaide. They may seek a doctor's referral and vary in cost, so request a price schedule before deciding whether this service is right for you. Many private sleep consultants will not see babies before six months of age when some sleep issues can iron themselves out whereas CYH and Torrens House take babies from zero to twelve months old.
