Personal Consultations

Delivering advice with encouragement, love, and truth. 


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(s). 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 is available through email or phone. This is great if you do not feel that you need a full in-home or virtual consultation. The mini email consult is $25 and gives you the ability to ask 3 questions. The mini phone consult is $2/min. After the mini consult, if you wish to move forward with a full consult, your deposit can be put toward the cost of a full consult. The mini consults do not come with unlimited email support.
