Breaking The Habit Group Program
There is no better feeling in the world than having your lovely little one fall asleep in your arms.
Your baby sleeping in your arms will be one of many wonderful memories you create with your little one that you'll look back on years from now.
..........But for some mums (as you'll know if your reading this) falling asleep in your arms is the ONLY way your baby or toddler is able to fall asleep.
At first it's great......you can get them off to sleep, quickly and easily right?
But as your little one grows from newborn to crawling baby and then to a toddler if its the only way they know how get to sleep it can really take its toll on us as parents. Especially if they are waking up multiple times overnight & need your help every time to get back to sleep!
Many mums approach me with this problem.
"It was fine to do at bedtime but now I have to rock her back to sleep at nap times which takes such a long time. She also wakes around 3 am and then again at 5. each time i have to go in and rock her back to sleep or she'll just scream. Its starting to take its toll on both of us. I'm exhausted and touched out. And she's very clingy and grouchy which isn't really like her "
Janet ,mother of 15month old girl
"He will only fall asleep in my arms and the second i put him down he cries so i have to start again. I want him to fall asleep without my having to rock him but when i try he goes ballistic. My GP say to just let him cry but i can bear it!"
Natalie, Mother of 9 month old baby boy
"My mother in law told me by always rocking to sleep i'd create a rod for my own back. I'm afraid she was right as he will only fall asleep in my arms, and I don't know how to teach him to go to sleep by himself "
Marcia mother to 19 month old boy
Aaah the wonderful mother in law!
We can always rely on her to make us feel like we're doing an awful job as a parent lol!

What Clients say about Charmaine....
Charmaine came to us when we were exhausted and in need of advice rest and support. Charmaine provided all these and more. We had 8 week old twins and I was breastfeeding when she joined us. We relied on her wisdom and trusted her implicitly in caring for our twins and using good judgement. She is open minded but at the same time well informed in helping to come up with solutions for sleep and many other baby problems, she was very patient with us during many many evenings of discussion about the problems we were having. Her advice was always sensitive to the needs of our twins as well as us as parents, and always helped. She got the balance perfect between taking control and assisting us. We miss her greatly , our 4 year old still asks where her smiley face is in the mornings! Dr C. Croft & F.Hamilton Parents of 10 month old twins and a 4 year old. Notting Hill
â€Å“it felt like Christmas every night she came, she struck the right balance between giving us constructive advice but NEVER preached to us, at an early stage we relied on her advice to get us through each day and it was always spot on. We never felt judged by her even when she turned up to absolute mayhem, she had a wonderful nature and it was always a relief and never a worry to hand over care of my girls to her in fact she was probably far more patient with them during the night than we were. They slept through the night must faster than we envisaged without any harsh sleep training methods or crying.We were nervous when she stopped coming but we remembered her advice and its all been fine. I've recommended her to all my pregnant friends!! Mrs Thomson- Wandsworth, London UK, Mother of Twin girls 4months old.
