Sleep school for babies and toddlers

Do you also stay awake at night when your baby cries?

Babies over six months can usually manage through the night without frequent feeding. Sometimes babies are used to eating at night and very quickly the cycle of sleepless nights is complete.

Sleep is vital for both the baby and the parents. During sleep, the brain processes the day’s events and recharges for the next day.

We provide sleep training in the client’s home, in the baby’s/toddler’s own environment. A social professional and a worker who has worked with children for a long time comes to the family’s home where the sleep school takes place during three nights. During the three nights, the baby/toddler is introduced to a new familiar routine and learns to sleep on his/her own without night awakenings.

Home-based sleep training is a soft way to get uninterrupted sleep, as a new routine is established right in the family’s own home.

An initial assessment is made with a worker and common guidelines and ground rules are agreed upon. Our worker stays in the family’s home for three nights. Instructions are given for days, for example on eating and activities, so that the events of the day also support the success of the sleep school.

The price of the sleep school (incl. 2h planning visit, 3 x 12h nights and further instruction) is 3 820 €.

We recommend that parents take these nights for themselves. Our partner Kämp Collection Hotels offers you hotel nights -15% during these sleep school nights.
