Suzanne, Adamstown NSW, Australia
“The consultation was excellent. Natalie made us feel at ease from the moment she entered the house. We spent hours learning all the tools, tips and tricks to use to put Olivia to sleep, what we should do when she is unsettled and how to use feed-play-sleep. Babies don’t come with a manual, however, the “Sleeping Baby System” is as close to one as you will find! Definitely worth the investment.”

Is this the right consultation for you?
The in-home consultation is perfect for you if you are a local family in the Hunter Region of NSW.
You are looking for personal support from an experienced health professional to confidently solve your family’s sleeping and settling issues in your own home.
We take things minute by minute and ‘Aim for Calm’. I want you and your child to feel comfortable about your plan so you will sustain it and achieve your goals. Without the use of Controlled-Crying, Cry-it-out, feeding schedules, sleeping schedules or any strategy that doesn’t encourage you to respond to your child.
You don’t have to travel anywhere and your family remains in your own comfortable surroundings applying your new Sleep and Settle System in your child’s own bed.
This is designed to be a once only visit to empower you to trust your own parenting instincts and boost your confidence with a confident plan for you to achieve your sleeping and settling goals.
If you feel you need more support than a daytime visit Natalie can recommend alternative services that may suit your needs better.
How do we get started?
Fill in my Enquiry Form here . Once I receive your form, I will assess the information and we will speak on the phone to discuss your baby or toddler’s history and explore your sleeping and settling goals. I want to completely appreciate your child’s situation, answer all your burning questions, make sure we are a good fit and ensure that I am the right health professional service for your family.
When you feel comfortable with my gentle philosophy and our proposed sleeping and settling plan and are ready to proceed, we will secure your appointment date. I will then forward you my Welcome Pack and outline a basic routine for your day and night for you to get you started with and follow until your appointment day.
On the morning of the appointment day we will be in contact by text to plan the consultation around your baby or toddler’s individual routine that day.
- For newborns to six month olds I will be supporting you for a day sleep based around your child’s routine.
- For 6 months and over having two-three sleeps I will arrive at 12 midday for the second sleep.
- For 12 months and over having one day sleep, I will arrive at 11am for the day sleep.
- The length of consultation time is flexible to meet your needs (usually 4-6 hours) to address all of your sleeping and settling issues and leave you feeling you have a confident plan.
After I arrive at your home and meet your little one we will do a Bedroom Audit to completely set it up for sleep zzzzz. Sometimes changes we make in minutes can make hours of difference to their sleep.
In your baby or toddler’s uptime we will refresh and revive your parenting instincts and ensure efficient feeding and playing, topping off with a dose of confidence that your child is ready for bed.
As a Child and Family Health Nurse I provide professional breastfeeding and formula feeding advice, best practice advice on the introduction of solids, address food intolerances and allergies, discuss the foods that prevent sleep and contribute to night waking, night terrors, nightmares and confusional arousal.
We will discuss your child’s individual developmental stages and age appropriate play to earn their sleep for newborns to five year olds.
After a detailed discussion regarding your sleeping and settling goals and deciding on your child’s personal sleep strategy we will head off to bed to implement your child’s dynamic new sleep strategy and fine tune it as required. Minute by minute, I will be guiding you, monitoring your child’s progress and whispering in your ear the whole time. I am happy to provide a ‘staged approach’ where you decide on the baby steps we take to achieve your goals.
Once your little one is asleep zzzzz we can boil the kettle and have a cup of tea while I’m on hand to support you through any resettling if needed.
Finally, we start using your monitoring tools, review your new routine and work through your Sleeping Baby System or Sleeping Toddler System eBook together. We plan for great days and great nights and learn how to get mobile so your whole family can sleep anywhere zzzzz.
My follow up supports starts with unlimited phone calls/texts/emails for 6 months while you work towards your goal. I want you to feel supported, I’m keen to hear of your progress, I want to answer any new questions, troubleshoot trough new issues and of course celebrate your sleeping success!
Sally, Belmont, NSW, Australia (2 years old and 3 months old)
“After the new baby came home Elliot (2 years) previously a good sleeper, would not stay in his bed. It often took 2 hours of either one of us staying with him for this time. Newborn only slept for 45 minutes at a time and was very unsettled.
The information provided before, during and after the consultation was first class. We developed a much greater understanding of our children and the importance of routines.
After the consultation, we felt much more confident in dealing with our children at sleeptime. We felt as though we could establish better routines and had a plan to guide us.
We are amazed at the result of the consultation. Elliot now goes to bed at 7-7.30pm of a night time without any fuss! Olivia now sleeps 1.5-3 hours for each daytime sleep and has even been sleeping overnight. We could not be happier.
The service was brilliant and was exactly what we needed. You were accessible and your genuine interest in our results was wonderful.”
When is the consultation held?
The consultation is held during the daytime. It doesn’t matter whether your baby or toddler’s sleeping or settling problems occur in the day or night, you will be applying the same strategy for all sleeps. The daytime routine always contributes to the night sleep and vice versa. You are more likely to retain the information discussed during the day when you are more awake.
Success rate. Natalie has a 99.9% success rate for her clients self-settling to sleep in their own bed, during the consultation using the Sleep and Settle System, no matter what the clients were doing to settle to sleep before the consultation. Changing your baby or toddler’s sleeping routine is a gentle process that begins at the consultation, the average time it takes to achieve your goals is 3-21 days. This is not a quick fix program. Your family’s success relies on us working as a team along with the commitment, consistency and persistency of your family and all carer’s post-consultation.
What is the investment for the consultation?
This includes the in home consultation, the Sleeping Baby System or Sleeping Toddler System eBook and unlimited follow up phone calls/texts/emails for 6 months.
Credit cards and direct debits accepted.

Lyndall, Rathmines, NSW Australia (6 months old)
“6 month old baby. would only go to sleep on bottle or dummy. Would go to bed around 7pm and wake an hour or so later and up for hours- would not resettle. Had tried controlled crying, it didn’t work and I hated it.
The information provided was excellent. Very clear and understandable. easy to follow.
Since the consult baby sleeps 2 hours morning. 2 hours afternoon and 7pm-7am at night. It has changed our lives completely. I am so much more relaxed and confident. THANK YOU SO MUCH”.
