Hi I’m Shane, founder of Baby Snooze Sleep Consultant, a Newcastle based support service for sleep deprived parents looking for tailored sleep training solutions for their babies and toddlers.
Coordinating our local playgroup for several years opened my eyes to the fact that most mums were sleep deprived and felt powerless about how to reclaim much-needed sleep and restore joy to their parenting experience. In all their stories, one thing really stood out to me: it was the parents who were unintentionally creating poor sleeping habits in their babies - whether out of desperation, deprivation or sheer frustration.
So, I decided to pour my 23 years’ experience working in nursing and disability roles, my ongoing training as a Certified Sleep Specialist, and my learnings as a mother of four, into creating Baby Snooze Sleep Consultant.
My approach is as much about supporting parents to develop their babies’ sleep habits as it is about teaching babies to love the sleep they need. I’ll encourage you to trust your intuition, provide you with practical tips and techniques, and work hand in hand with you to create a holistic sleep plan suited to your baby, your comfort levels and your lifestyle. You’ll be in control throughout the entire journey, with me supporting and guiding you in the comfort of your own home.
Even solid little sleepers can face bumps along the road. Being consistent and persevering will gently reinforce positive sleep habits for your baby so that you can get back on track after an illness or holiday; manage sleep regression; and sail through normal phases of sleep transition.
One thing I know to be true is that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Your baby will learn to sleep and you’ll get your night time sleep back. Sometimes all that’s needed are a few little changes for everything to fit into place, just like a puzzle. Let me help you put the pieces together.
