I have been looking for baby sleep consultants. Obviously my 3months old baby keeps waking up during the night and having the nap for max 30mins few times during the day. I have been contacting few consultants but not sure which one i should go for. Anyone had an experience or recommendation? Im in Qld btw.

I am not saying a schedule, but a routine. Do the same things every time you put baby down to sleep, nurse (or feed) change diaper, maybe a little massage, sing cuddles and rocking and down for nap. Baby is young but will start to associate certain activity with going to sleep. Also, put baby down at the first sign of sleepiness, rubbing nose, rubbing ears, yawns. The belief that keeping baby up longer will make baby sleep longer is false. Sleep begets more sleep.

Your baby sounds pretty normal and does not need a sleep consultant. Schedules can work for some babies and it's good to try and keep them in a fairly normal and consistent routine, but some babies are just cat nappers... and most babies wake frequently at night at 3 months old. Some babies do sleep through the night fairly early on... some don't do it for a few years.

Try and nap when the baby naps and have a consistent routine as much as possible... but save your money and stress on looking for a 'sleep consultant'...

It is absolutely normal for a 3 month old to be waking regularly at night.......

Save your money. Start to follow a routine, many babies fall asleep and rouse after 20-30 minutes and just need to settle back into sleep. A well rested baby is going to sleep much better and longer that an overtired baby. If your child is waking fully after only 30 minutes of sleep he is not getting enough deep sleep and will be overtired. There is not a magic formula to getting your child to sleep, you just work at it. Learning to fall asleep and to fall back to sleep is a skill that baby has to learn.
