ABOUT RAQUEL TARA – INFANT SLEEP & DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST CONSULTANT

What my approach can be absolutely be categorised under is ‘Responsive & Respectful Infant Sleep Support’

In 1999, for all intents and purposes still a kid myself, before baby sleep consultants were a mainstream service, I became a mothercraft maternity nanny in London…

READ MORE

I created my 1:1 programs after 20 years of working closely with new parents & their babies.

I’ve helped doctors, teachers, celebrities and coaches both-in Australia and abroad. With my online programs, I can be your baby sleep consultant in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Byron Bay & anywhere in between.

EXPERIENCE

My 20+ years of experience as a baby sleep coach started in London as a mothercraft night nanny. I fully developed my skills as a baby sleep specialist  in Sydney & Melbourne where I provided baby sleep coach home visits exclusively. I launched my services into the online space when I was became based in Bali around 2016.

Today I’m not only a baby sleep consultant, I’m also a passionate parent and infant advocate. I support parents across Australia with my intensive 1:1 support baby sleep support programs. I love the feeling of helping parents not only get the sleep they deserve – but also understand how they got there. And how to maintain healthy sleep hygiene in their lives for themselves & their child permanently.

As a professional I supporting parents in their transition into parenthood which deepening my knowledge of infant mental health. The personal growth that parents are able to achieve through early parenting is a major interest area. My experience has taught me that the inherent wisdom we all have to evolve as humans is what drives a loving adult into wanting to become a caregiver. With the first 3 years of an infants life imprinting crucial feedback that influences the trajectory of their lives; it’s incredibly beneficial to understand how to model ‘certain leadership’ for infants as early as possible.

What I have come to realise is most overlooked aspect of solving infant sleep issues – or any parenting issue – is compassionately examining the tapestry of the child’s ‘caregivers’ childhood psychology. There are no other baby sleep consultants in Australia with my extensive background in early parenting psychology. I work with pregnant couples and new parents in identifying, understanding, and supporting them in this therapeutic process. This process of  conscious expansion presents itself organically as a part of the mentor process within my infant sleep programs.

Supporting a baby’s sleep habits are usually the first loving boundary most parents have to put in place for their children. Inherited belief systems from our own childhood play such an integral role in every aspect of caregiving, and it’s important that w’re mindful how they are affecting our feelings and reactions .

In addition to co-regulation education, mentoring parents in identifying these aspects is an integral part of the support I offer in my programs. And you can see from the baby sleep success stories how much of a role this mentoring aspect plays in the satisfaction parents get from working with me.

Remember to use it for daytime naps too. Sleep sacks become holistic sleep cues. Just the action of changing into her sleep sack signals sleep to your baby.

Woolino Sleep Sack – World’s #1 Merino Wool Baby Sleep Sack

Baby Board Book

The same book forever at every bedtime. My two favourite sleep cue books are Sweet Dreams, Peter! and Goodnight Moon.

Ensure it is made of 100% cotton quality breathable fabric. Be careful as most have polyester in them – make sure you check the materials.

Baby Sleep Success Stories. Reviews from parents of babies from all over Australia

Everyone loves a baby sleep success story. And after 20 years of supporting new parents and their babies,  Baby Sleep Consultant Raquel Tara has thousands of them.

Within 1 week, everything was better! My 8 month old was taking fuller feeds, sleeping well for day naps and sleeping long stretches at night. I couldn’t have done it without Raquel’s patience and wisdom. She takes the time to listen, and really tailors the advice and strategies for each baby and circumstance.

Raquel’s guidance & support was incredible. Even though we were messaging, I felt as though we were speaking face-to-face throughout.

Raquel has the amazing ability to keep you going when you want to quit, it’s like she knows exactly what to say at the right time.

She has made us more confident parents & taught us to observe and listen to our daughter, rather than just focussing on trying to stop her crying.
Every time I was hesitant or had extra questions, Raquel would help me to understand & this made me feel that I wasn’t just following advice blindly.

We cannot recommend Raquel Tara highly enough, & would happily pay 3 times what she is currently charging for her services, knowledge & support. The results we have experienced, and the skills we have learnt are more than we could ever have hoped for.

Raquel was an incredible support through our week together. We loved that we were able to ask as many questions and Raquel would always be willing to share her knowledge, wonderful analogies and made us feel in control of any situation that popped up.

Raquel’s program gave us a solid foundation to manage my baby’s sleep, but having her mentorship through the program was invaluable. It was great having someone by my side (figuratively speaking!) to reframe my thinking, help me keep perspective and to guide my decision making when I was suffering self-doubt.

Even after that first night, ongoing there is always those moments of wondering how to handle different situations as they come up. I’ve learnt so much about my baby and myself during my time with Raquel. It has felt like an awesome parenting boot camp and now I am ready and armed to tackle whatever my beautiful boy has install for me.

Raquel was extremely supportive, reassuring and down to earth. There were times during our week program that I was sure Raquel was in the room as she just understood what was going on at my house. She was extremely responsive to messages, I rarely had to wait for any replies. This meant I felt confident with what I was doing with my boy at sleep time.

I was at my wits end and then I came across beautiful Raquel and all I can say is THANK GOD for that!

With Raquel as my mentor she provided me with the knowledge and guidance to help my bub to become self confident SLEEPING baby!

Within a few days bub was actually having day naps and sleeping through the night all in his own sleeping space! Her methods work amazingly and even better Raquel is there every step of the way and any concerns you have Raquel is there to ease your mind!

If I’m completely honest I was dubious that the 1:1 program would work for us. But boy was I proved wrong!

Raquel gives you the confidence and the information you need to develop an independent and resilient sleeper. She makes you feel comfortable with the process and provides support to get you through any hiccups along the way.
My only regret about working with Raquel is not doing it sooner!

Raquel helped me to become more confident as a mother, helped me to further understand the parenting style that I wanted to have for our my baby, and helped me to understand our baby’s emotional development and how to support her to develop and self regulate her emotions. For this I am truly truly grateful.

Raquel is calm, supportive, gentle and never makes you feel like you’re asking a silly question, even when you ask it more than once (‘mum Brain…’). She explains things in a way that make it easy to understand what you need to do and why.

My partner and I are so appreciative of Raquel’s support, not fighting our baby to go to sleep and her new earlier bed time has given us much needed time to spend together also.

Thanks again Raquel, I believe choosing to complete a program with you was the best thing that we have done for our baby since she was born. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend completing a program with Raquel to help with your baby’s sleep, it really is life changing and so beneficial.

Raquel changed our world with twins and a toddler from a sleep deprived mess and dreading bed times, to a totally enjoyable process.

We’ve even been able to go on a holiday and the girls were still able to set settle and we all got sleep and were able to enjoy it. I really loved the consistent WhatsApp support.
If anyone is pondering whether or not to do this, I highly recommend going for it!

We had put off sleep training with our 2 year old for far too long and were referred to Raquel by a friend. We were both very hesitant at first but after a week of amazing support, both via text and phone, we have a new lease on life!

It’s not an easy journey but Raquel is non judgemental and her support is backed by research which is reassuring. Our child now sleeps through every night and drops to sleep by himself with little fuss!

I can’t recommend Raquel enough! We had a very high spirited 9 month old that was waking every two hours through the night and couldn’t self settle.

After two weeks of guidance and support from Raquel she can now self settle and is sleeping 10-11hrs straight at night!
For us the first 7 days was tough but we made a commitment to follow all of Raquels advice and give our baby the best chance to learn this new skills and it definitely payed off. Thanks Raquel.
