Frequently Asked Questions
Why are routines so important?
The importance of routines is discussed in this free article.
Why should I purchase your articles as well as a book?
Most of the information in my articles is in the current book however if you are looking for further reading, please visit this area of the website.
In some of your routines you advise against putting a baby to sleep in his bed. Why is that?
This comes down to giving your baby very clear messages. If you know he's due for a sleep, put him in his bed. He'll learn that if you put him in his bed, he's meant to sleep. However, at other times we suggest a nap. Put your baby down in a safe, comfortable place so that if he hasn't taken the nap, he won't get mixed messages when you get him up.
I would like to follow your advice and start my baby on solids at 16 weeks but my health nurse and a friend say it is too early. I would like to know what other parents think.

How can I ask a question about my baby?
At Save Our Sleep we offer three services.
Online Advice - $240 for 12 months of support or $20 for a one month read only subscription.
The Save Our Sleep Online Advice area is a friendly, supportive online community where Save Our Sleep coaches will help you establish and follow Tizzie’s routines. This is also an area you may ask questions that come up along the way. The Online Advice area is a safe and secure environment where you can also chat and share the day to day joys, achievements and challenges of parenting.
The Online Advice is a community of like-minded parents and coaches who willingly share their experiences, baby advice and support new members. The Save Our Sleep moderating team checks the advice given and ask Tizzie to help out if they feel this is needed. This is not the same as One On One with Tizzie the difference is support might be a little slower with a day or two before a coach gets back to you.
Save Our Sleep also offers a One on One consultation service. This involves 30 days of 'One-On-One with Tizzie' and Tizzie will give you baby advice and help you establish a routine where your child sleeps all night every night, and eats well during the day.
Tizzie’s one-on-one consultations are performed via email. You will be able to directly ask Tizzie questions and receive answers within a few hours during business days. If you have an urgent problem it can be answered within a few minutes by Tizzie or one of her team. For problems arising outside office hours, Tizzie will arrange a suitable consultation time.
One-On-One clients may email Tizzie with their baby sleep problems and other parenting issues as often as needed. Once your consultation is complete you will automatically receive a membership to our online advice area for the remaining 11 months. This will enable you to continue to have an avenue of support from Tizzie’s team and other parents following Tizzie’s advice.
There may also be some other costs involved such as purchasing the correct bedding that Tizzie recommends for babies to settle and sleep well. If your current bedding is not adequate or does not meet Tizzie's guidelines we will need you to purchase the bedding Tizzie recommends.

Tizzie also offers a sleep clinic at her home in Ocean Grove, Victoria for a period of time (length of stay will vary depending on needs) to work through the issues you are having in person and have her there to support you as you make the changes. The price of this option does vary based on the length of your stay. To give you a guide to consider, the Sleep Clinic stay pricing begins from $1,600.00 for the 1st 48 hours and then it is $400 for each 24 hours after that. People do not normally need to stay more than 2 or 3 days. Please note these prices take into account Tizzie will still be doing some of her own work and tending a little to her own children. How it works is you come and stay with her and her family and she helps you with your baby as part of her family. Tizzie’s husband will cook all the meals and I can assure you he is a good cook you would be looked after.
