After a plan is put into place, our sleep specialist will then follow up with you with another phone call within 3-7 days. This call is designed for you to be able to ask any questions you may have and/or to troubleshoot any issues you may haveencountered. Additional support in your home or by phone is also available.

Typically a 2 hour visit, it allows for hands on learning with your baby; including practicing a first bath, swaddling & soothing techniques, filing nails and much more! Parents often create a list of questions that they have, as the first week home is very new and exciting, but does come with many questions about normal newborn behaviors, feeding and sleeping schedules, developmental milestones, etc. This visit provides you with the opportunity to ask those questions to one of our RNs who specializes in newborn and infant care.
