Cassandra & Sabrina - 20 Months Old

Cassandra & Sabrina - 20 Months Old

Cassandra initially booked Eva for little miss Sabrina who was 20 months old at the time for a Quick Chat - 15min. Once we actually started talking about everything that was happening, I quickly realised that it was a little bit more complex than what the intake form came across to be.

Ah, the beauty of actually talking to someone and getting all the information!

With that, we shifted to the Phone Consult + One Week Support so I could be there to help Cassandra through the process, especially as she also had a newborn.

The biggest thing that Cassandra was struggling with was that for the better part of 3-4 months, Sabrina was consistently fighting or skipping her one and only nap and it was starting to cause Cassandra a lot of stress, especially with the newborn to also look after.

In addition, Sabrina was very set in her ways when it came to feeding, of course as all toddlers are, but that wasn't supporting her sleep especially as she also had some early morning rising at play.

To ensure that Sabrina slept and wasn't overtired, Cassandra was resorting to assisted sleep where possible in the form of pram or car drives, but again with the 7-week-old newborn this was just not a sustainable way to go.

The first thing that we looked at was the actual routine itself during the day, the timing of that nap and the length of the nap to make sure that little miss was ready for sleep, The first couple of days I made sure that Cassandra was giving me a play by play of what was happening to make sure that we found the sweet spot for Sabrina.

Guess what? We started to see some naps happening!

We also made some simple changes to the pre nap and pre bedtime routine to ensure that it did not hinder the falling asleep process.

By the end of our Phone Consult + One Week Support, little miss was consistently taking consolidated naps in her cot, sleeping through the night and no longer fighting nap times!
