Sleep Training Services to Help Baby (and hence Parents) Sleep Better
As new parents, a baby’s sleep is usually the biggest source of stress. Somehow, they don’t seem to know how to fall asleep on their own or stay asleep for long. The worst is, they fight sleep the hardest when they are tired.
Sleep training is the general term used for teaching your baby how to fall asleep from the state of being fully awake, without the aid of motion or carrying. Sounds like a dream? The journey there involves getting the baby used to age-appropriate routines and wake times, and can be achieved more easily than most believe
Why Consider Sleep Training Services?
There is a common misunderstanding that sleep training is another word for “letting your baby cry themselves to sleep”. This is not true, though many do cry before they fall asleep (even while being carried or rocked). Most of sleep training is about developing routines which are appropriate for the baby’s natural development. These need routines need not mean overt restrictions on your family’s lifestyle, but create loose schedules which provide times for rest in between activities.
Enjoy a Happier and Healthier Baby
Similar to adults, a baby who has learnt to fall asleep by him/herself from a state of being fully awake is also capable of putting himself or herself back to sleep when they wake up in the middle of the night or their naps. Such a baby would hence spend a lot less time crying and fighting sleep, and get the optimal amount rest that they need for their age. Research findings indicate a positive association between sleep and overall cognitive development in typically developing infants and young children.
Achieve Better Mental and Physical Health
With a sleep-trained baby, parents can spend more time completing other activities and getting more rest. More importantly, parents can be relieved of the mental strain from worrying about whether their baby is getting sufficient rest, or feeling helpless or trapped by the hours they need to slept putting their baby to sleep. The baby may sleep in the early evening, or be able to fall asleep outside of their own home, leaving parents empowered with more free time to engage in self care or social activities.

In all we do, Baby Planner SG respects your family's preferred choices
While we offer sleep training services, we also fully support assisting your baby to sleep if you so prefer. Our experienced Baby Planning Consultant is familiar with various methods of swaddling, rocking, carrying and/or patting to sleep, and will be able to share what works better during which phases of your baby’s development. She can also make recommendations on what sorts of equipment/accessories which will be essential or helpful with the various methods, and more importantly, tell you what DOESN’T work so you don’t waste money and space buying white elephants! This is particularly important since certain equipment/accessories are only useful or effective if you plan to adopt certain sleeping arrangements.
