In 2011 Carmel Morabito featured on Network 10’s popular television program ‘The Project’, as an expert Mothercraft Nurse and Infant Sleep Consultant.

Frequently asked questions

I am a qualified Mothercraft Nurse (Mothercraft nurses are enrolled nurses (not qualified to give medication ) who practise only with newborns. They provide nursing care and assist parents in providing care to newborn infants) 



With over 3o years of experience working in Special Care Nursery and mother baby units as well as running my own business I have supported over 10,000 families over my tenure.


I believe my results speak for themselves as I am confident in what I teach. I know my programs work because they are tailored and individualised to each family I work alongside.


There are two ways to  work together.


Depending on your location, situation, requirements, and child’s age, Carmel will recommend either a phone consultation or an in-house visit.


The length of the visit will depend on the age of your child.

Traditional sleep schools offer set programs where you must leave your home and be in a clinical environment. My approach is to support you in the privacy and comfort of your own home. 


Sleep schools are typically covered by Private Health insurance, please note Private sessions are not currently covered at this stage.

Babies grow and flourish when their needs are well met, they thrive when they know what to expect. We know that when parents follow a feed, play, sleep routine of daily care their babies cry and fuss less and are easier to care for when they are awake. 

Upon first consultation, Carmel will individualise all programs based on the family’s beliefs and comfort levels.

With sleep programs, consistency is key, without the confidence and support from you the parent or guardian, the program cannot work, ensuring that each program is tailored to you.

Responsive settling is the most effective method.

Carmel will individualise a program based on your family’s needs and comfort levels, refraining from using the ‘cry-it-out’ method.

Absolutely, when working with Carmel you can be rest assured that all discussions remain highly confidential.


Carmel respects high level privacy, so much so,  Carmel’s vehicle has no branding or logos to ensure discretion with this service at all times.

Newborns right through to 3 year olds.

Calm Babies kindly understands this happens from time-to-time. The client will be encouraged to pause the program and Calm Babies will reinstate the program and training once the baby is feeling better.
