Sleep Clinic

Group Sleep Clinics

From time to time we run Group Sleep Clinics to provide sleep support and advice to families. The sleep clinics are fairly small in size and are usually run by the fantastic Linda Russell (the ‘Sleep Lady’).

If you are interested in attending our next Group Sleep Clinics please contact the Jennifer at earlyyears@firststepmusselburgh.co.uk

“Thank you for changing my life. My baby is like a new boy. He is so much happier – sleeping, eating and crawling now”.

“My child’s sleep is a lot better. We have had a breakthrough”.

Individual Sleep Clinics

Our first discussion will be around finding out why you have contacted the Sleep Clinic, your child’s current sleep pattern, and routines.

We will then ask that you complete a 7 day sleep diary to support staff in considering what you might be able to do help to improve your sleep issue

Together we discuss a plan which the parent/carer believes is achievable and are willing to adhere to.

Support is provided through follow up sessions at home or in the project.

We strongly advise all parents/carers to discuss their sleep issues with their child's health visitor or GP in the first instance.


Our Sleep clinics are a very popular service and we try to support as many families as possible however there can sometimes be a waiting list for this service.
