Frequently Asked Questions

Toddler Behaviour
Q. What type of issues do you work with?

A. The types of issues, challenges and concerns I can help you address include:

  • Sleep problems, including night waking, bedtime and naptime routines, sleep associations, sleep nurturing, and setting up the optimal environment in your aristoTOT’s bedroom
  • Weaning concerns
  • Picky eating
  • Tantrums
  • Using the potty
  • Language development
  • Help with recognizing toddler cues and understanding behaviours
  • Information or advice on your child’s development
Q: How would you describe your approach?

A: Holistic; there is no one perfect approach, there could be so many factors contributing to the cause of your particular challenge. I take into account social, physical, psychological, emotional and environmental factors to give you the most workable solutions.

Q: Do you use one particular method to sleep train, for instance the cry it out method?

A: You and your child are individuals, so a standard textbook approach to provide your family with a sleep plan won’t work. Your sleep plan will be custom prepared having carried out a full consultation and tailored to meet your family’s needs. At no point will you be asked to do anything you feel uncomfortable with, for instance letting your child cry it out alone; instead I will empower you to confidently provide your aristoTOT with the love and support he or she needs to make positive changes.

Q: How long will it take to see an improvement or resolution?

A: In some cases you will begin to see a positive impact within 7 days; on average you will see a marked improvement in anything from 2-4 weeks.*Note that every child and situation is different so be prepared for these time scales to vary, in addition there are sometimes mitigating external factors that can cause small set backs and delays. However, we can support you through these.

*this applies where the challenges or issues arise from learned behaviour and not a medical condition; for medical conditions we recommend you seek the advice of a pediatrician.FF
