Struggling to figure out how to get your baby to sleep? We can help.

From baby sleep regressions to nap times, we’re here to help you navigate the mysterious world of infant sleep. We use a combination of gentle self-soothing techniques and age-appropriate routines adapted to your family’s comfort level, to help guide your baby to sleep and encourage positive bedtime habits. The Sleep Dept is not only there to guide you when your baby won’t sleep, but to be your sounding board —someone to share the wins with and to help you through those tougher days. We are there with you, every step of the way.

The Sleep Dept works with families struggling with sleep issues in children aged 0-4 years. Our sleep HQ is based in Sydney, Australia but we regularly travel to Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and beyond. The Sleep Dept also works remotely with many international clients.

Erika Lamour

INFANT SLEEP SPECIALIST

Erika has been working in childcare for nearly a decade. She’s worked with newborns, toddlers, special needs children, multiples… and everything in between. Her curiosity in guiding babies to sleep began in 2012, and she quickly read every book she could get her hands on. She then completed qualified training courses in various sleep training techniques. Over the years, she would help out friends and families, before she took her growing passion and turned it into The Sleep Dept.

Erika has created her own gentle techniques that have been used by hundreds of families all over the world.

Erika is based in Sydney but regularly travels interstate to work with families all over Australia. She also works remotely with international clients.
