At Nurture 2 Sleep, we want to use our decades of experience as parents, midwives, health visitors, child development experts, and sleep practitioners to support you and your family.
We use a gentle sleep training method to help babies and young children learn to fall asleep and stay asleep without the use of strict schedules or cry-it-out techniques. It typically involves supporting and gradually helping your child learn to self-soothe and develop the ability to fall asleep independently. The goal of gentle sleep training is to teach the child healthy sleep habits in a way that is sensitive to their needs and does not cause distress.
By working with us, you become empowered with the knowledge of evidence-based research and then how to apply that to your individual child's needs. It is never a 1 size fits all approach.
We believe in science, we believe in connection and love, and together they are so powerful in teaching and supporting our children.
Science supports you. Your parenting instinct guides you. And where the two meet is where YOU will find your rest.GET SUPPORT

Newborns feel most comfortable when their circumstances mimic the womb. Swaddling, warmth, a little rocking or gentle jostling, all make a baby feel safe and secure. So, in those early days and weeks, please remember it’s ok to cuddle or rock your baby to sleep if they’re unsettled. We are building a very new positive relationship and things like cuddling, skin to skin contact, singing are all ways to build this bond.
As your baby approaches 4 months it may be time to become curious as to the level of assistance your baby requires to fall asleep and what you personally think is sustainable long-term. This will guide you as a parent as to next steps to support independent sleep in the future.
