Each and every one of our 'remarkable' sleep support plans is loving, responsive and highly effective. Designed to enable, empower and encourage, our plans work wonders in a range of sleep issues, family set ups and cultures, children’s temperaments and developmental ages and stages, parental philosophies and budgets. Every plan comes from a place of great love and has your child’s happiness and well-being at its core. Gem and Eve and their lush sister Beth are proud owners of 8 of their own children (in 2020 aged 2 to 11) who have all needed some sleep support at one time or another. We are both often asked what our 'secret' is to our kind, happy, confident and empathetic children is and our answers are always the same: solid sleep and loving boundaries (both of which are encompassed in our plans.)

Follow these simple steps to see which of our sleep plans are best suited to your needs:

Step 1:    Use our Self Assess tool (below) 

Step 2:   If suitable for the PDF-only plan, purchase that online

Step 3:   If the self-assessment suggested you may be best matched with a bespoke sleep plan, please

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


Please bear in mind that your assessment will only be accurate if you are honest in your answers. If you buy a plan lesser to the one you really need, it may well result in the plan costing more in the long run, practically, financially and emotionally. Please answer from the heart and avoid the urge to make things sound better than they are. We are here to help, not judge.

If your answers contained only As and Bs, we are confident that your case is suitable for the PDF-only plan which you can purchase online. If you answered any Cs at all it is highly recommended that you request our in-depth assessment form so that we can be sure to get you the care and the results that your family needs and deserves. You can do this below. Please note that your device may send this form to junk mail. 

Please note: C&B strongly advises against choosing a lower cost package that’s not adequate for your needs. Our support recommendations are based on ten years’ experience and professional judgement. C&B takes no responsibility for the outcome of packages purchased below the level we recommend, as we take great care to assess you correctly.
