What We Do

Good Night is a Southern African child sleep consultancy that guides and supports parents in giving their children – and themselves – the gift of sleep.

Essentially, we help you teach your baby and child to sleep. Founded by Petro Thamm, South Africa’s first certified Sleep Sense ™ Consultant, a mom and advocate of good sleep, Good Night is South Africa’s leading sleep programme, which extends worldwide.


The Good Night Philosophy


We believe that no two children are the same, and therefore sleep programmes should be tailor-made to suit every child and circumstance. We believe that a well-rested child makes or a healthy child, and a happy family, we will teach you skills to enable your child to become a healthy and happy sleeper.


Just like with eating and walking, a child needs to be taught to sleep, and we do so in a gentle and nurturing way. We never ask a parent to do anything they’re not comfortable with, and we don’t believe in the misconception that leaving a baby to cry will make him a good sleeper.

  • We do a thorough analysis of your child’s sleep habits and provide you with a personalized sleep plan to implement
  • We give you information about why sleep is such an integral part of your child’s health, well-being and learning.
  • After assessing your family’s unique needs, we provide you with a step-by- step guide of the changes you need to make.
  • We carefully assess your situation to determine your challenges, and then we tailor-make a step-by- step sleep plan that is suited to you and your child.
  • We offer support in the form of calls and emails, and our consultants are also equipped to stay over at your house for added assistance if required.
  • We offer follow-up meetings and monitoring to help your family progress to natural, healthy sleep patterns.
  • We provide seminars, talks and workshops on Sleep.
