Our advice is NOT intended to be a substitute for medical advice or treatment. Always seek the advice of your doctor or other qualified health practitioner regarding any matters that may require medical attention or diagnosis, and before following the advice and using the techniques described in this Sleep Sense Program. Reliance on any information provided by Brittney Stefanic Sleep Consulting and all associate consultants (aka Sleeper Teachers®) is solely at your own risk.

2.    Exclusion/Limitation Of Liability

3.    Payment Installments Agreement

In order to secure a consultation spot with Brittney Stefanic Sleep Consulting (or Sleeper Teachers®) you must purchase your package and agree to our terms and conditions. Once payment is received, your consultation date and time will be booked.

Once the initial payment installment has been paid, there are no refunds and the remaining payments must be honored by client.

4.    Guarantee on Services, Results and Crying

We can help you reach your sleep goals, and the methods used for each client are proven to work time and time again. Parents play the biggest role in helping their children learn how to sleep. We will give you the tools for implementation and support needed to make changes necessary to create good sleep skills, but the implementation itself is out of our hands. Therefore we cannot guarantee the results.

We want nothing more than to help our coaching clients succeed, so we will work hard to help you get to sleep success.

Every child is so different! As a result, we cannot predict exactly how your little one will respond to learning their new sleep skills. Most parents do see results within a couple of days as we slowly and proactively teach independent soothing strategies. Little ones catch on very fast, and it is amazing to watch them develop their new found strategies. 

The best way to teach your little one to sleep is to let them figure out how to do it on their own, and yes, this will probably involve some crying. The great news is that we will suggest intervention strategies for you in your sleep plan.

Please remember that crying is your baby’s way of protesting change, and as we are making changes to their sleep habits, there is likely going to be some protest.

5.    Communication Expectations

While we recommend follow up support for the best experience, the support is entirely optional. If you do not engage in our follow up support, we will assume that all is well and that you do not have questions or need support.

6.    Acknowledgement of Safe Sleep Practices

As Sleeper Teachers®, the safety and well-being of your family is our number one priority. We are trained in and continually learning more about the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) safe sleep recommendations and standards.

That said, it is important for you to know we adhere to the following safe sleep standards:

1 — We always recommend placing the baby on their back on a flat, firm sleeping surface (crib, bassinet or pack and play) with a fitted sheet. Through 12 months there should be nothing added including bumpers, Doc-a-Tot, mobiles, blankets, pillows, toys and loveys. After 12 months, a blanket and lovey can be used. After 18 months, a pillow can be added.

2 — Pacifiers at sleep onset are a protective factor against SIDS, and use of them is recommended by the AAP until 6 months and up to 1 year. For some families, pacifiers are refused by the baby or not a useful tool. In those cases, we recommend trying the pacifier again in a few weeks. 

3 — The AAP recommends room sharing (but separate sleep space) through 6 months and up to 1 year. 

We will touch more on safe sleep for your specific sleep situation during our consultation, but always lay this out clearly ahead of time. 

If you have any questions about these safe sleep practices, a quick call to your pediatrician is always a great idea.
