Our 'remarkable' sleep support plans are loving, responsive and highly effective. Designed to enable, empower and encourage, they work wonders in a very short period of time (typically 3-5 days, but we say to allow two weeks.) It is important that families are fully aware that there will almost certainly be protest/ resistance involved when they change the behaviours they're currently using. Please watch Eve's video on controlled crying (on our instagram page) to ensure you are completely aware of our stance on it.

Families have two main options: a PDF-only plan (highly effective for straightforward cases) and a Bespoke 1:1 Support (essential for families needing professional hand-holding and troubleshooting across 1-3 weeks.) There is also an 'in-between' option - a PDF plan with one or more 1:1 Top Up Support calls added on, to give an element of bespoke 1:1 advice from one of our skilled Sleep Supporters. 

It is imperative that you self-assess to ensure you are matched with the right level of support. Getting a lesser plan than you're matched with could result in an unsuccessful outcome. Our recommendations are based on ten years’ experience and professional judgement. We cannot take responsibility for the outcome of plans purchased below that which we advise.

1:    Use our Self Assess tool (below) 

2:   If matched with the PDF-only plan, purchase online

3:   If you self-assess as being better matched with a higher level of support than a PDF-only plan, as many do, please return the in-depth assessment form to us. Do not buy the PDF if you have any strong feelings against crying.








This super-simple self-assess tool is for you to do in your head. Simply note whether you have any C answers, and if so how many.

Please note that your assessment will only be accurate if you are honest in your answers. It is imperative that you ensure you are matched with the right level of support. Getting a lesser plan than you're matched with could result in an unsuccessful outcome. Our recommendations are based on ten years’ experience and professional judgement. We cannot take responsibility for the outcome of plans purchased below that which we advise.

4) My child’s day typically begins:  

A after 5.30

B after 4.30

5) When not tired I would describe my child as: 

A usually happy and confident in their own skin 

B more often than not clingy with unpredictable moods at times 

C usually demanding, often suffering with emotional volatility

6) I would say my child is: 

A able to function normally, albeit not their best self because of the tiredness 

B constantly overtired and suffering from the ill effects of broken sleep  

C rock bottom exhausted - it’s impacting on their quality of life 

7) Developmentally, my child is:

A hitting standard milestones 

B pretty much where they are expected to be give or take a few months 

C delayed due to unknown/known factors 

8) My child’s health is: 

A generally good 

B less good than it could be  

C impacted upon by some serious health challenges   

9) When it comes to boundary setting and consistency: 

A I am able to do this most of the time when not exhausted 

B I regularly feel unable to do this, despite wanting to 

C I am an entirely baby-lead, ‘attachment’ parent and it’s working for me/ I don’t want to change that 

10) In terms of readiness for change: 

A we are 100% ready, come what may 

B we are somewhat guilt-filled, but know deep down it’s the right thing to do 

C we are undecided. There are some parts of the sleep ‘problem’ that we enjoy and don’t want to change

11) When it comes to my and my partner’s mental health (both parents to answer)

A exhaustion is impacting heavily on my mood but I wouldn’t say I feel depressed or anxious on a day to day basis

C I face significant mental health challenges

12) My experience of conception, pregnancy and birth was:

A full on but not traumatic

C harrowing/ traumatic/ painful (either physically or emotionally). Conception may have followed loss or a particular effort to conceive

A pretty clear - life is settled on the whole

B not entirely clear. There are some potentially unsettling variables such as a return to work/ new baby on the way/ house move/ start at nursery or similar 

C jam packed. There is a considerable amount of difficult/ stressful events/ changes going on for our family 

14) When it comes to the protest/upset/tears that I may well face from my child:

A I don’t like to hear them cry but I accept that some upset will be part of the process 

B I accept it will happen but have mixed feelings/ concerns about it 

C I am inherently opposed to any kind of proper crying for my child and I am not willing to continue if there is any kind of protest involved


If you answered only As and Bs: we are confident that your case is suitable for the PDF-only plan providing you have watched Eve's video on Controlled Crying. You can purchase the PDF online. If you answered any Cs at all it is highly recommended that you request our in-depth assessment form so that we can offer you our professional opinion and guidance on what level of support you need. (Note: if you answered C to Q 14, you must not buy the PDF without going through our in-depth assessment process.) P​lease note: C&B strongly advises against choosing a lower cost package that’s not adequate for your needs
