Personalized Consultations

Infant Basics and Toddler Training offers completely custom family plans through the following consultation options.

In-Home Consult   //  Virtual Consult (phone/facetime)  //   Email Consult

All three packages include 3 months of UNLIMITED email support and encouragement to guide you through the many transitions and developmental changes that happen with your little one. When you register for a consult, I will send you a questionnaire to assist me in getting to know your family and tailoring your support so you feel comfortable and confident in our plan.

Mini Consult: $2/min on phone or $25 for 3 questions through email. This is great if you have just a few questions and don’t need a full consult.
