Our Founder

Our Founder Sleep Nanny Lucy Shrimpton

My name is Lucy and I am a wife and mother of two. I am British and I live on the south coast of England but we serve families all over the world.

Since having our son and working through his sleep challenges, I have had a passion and a fascination for sleep during childhood and the science and philosophies that are unique to children. Previous generations have told themselves that it is all just a part of parenthood and that we just have to endure the sleep deprivation until it passes but I discovered that it really doesn’t have to be that way. With a bit of help, guidance and support, you can create a well rested household and install excellent sleep skills that will benefit your child for life.

During a nursery parents evening, my daughter’s key-worker told me of a mother whose son was nearly two and had never slept through the night. She described how worn out this poor mother seemed on a daily basis. I immediately felt compassion for this mother and desperately wanted to help her. I knew she did not need to suffer and she could feel the same relief I felt when I experienced a transformation with my family. This was not the first time I had felt compelled to help tired parents get their sleep back.

My passion for the subject and my desire to help change people’s lives for the better, had been manifesting! It was after that parents evening in October 2013 that I decided I had to do this as a profession, so I embarked upon extensive study and training with the worlds best teachers and mentors. As a mother who has been in your shoes, I can tell you that there is light, or should I say sleep, at the end of the tunnel and, what’s more, we can take you by the hand and show you the way, FAST!

We approach every circumstance with responsive and nurturing solutions that work. They work because they suit the parents and they suit the child.

It is widely misunderstood that ‘sleep training’ is a bad thing or is somehow cruel or distressing for a baby or young child. This is simply an idea based on an extreme form of sleep training known as ‘Cry It Out’ – something I am not an advocate of.

I have studied the many methods of sleep training and the ranges of parenting styles and I have discovered that whether an attachment parent or a fan of Ferber, there is a gentle solution to suit you.

I believe that at the extreme ends of the spectrum, there are two complete opposite and yet equally damaging styles of sleep training but there is a whole realm of gentle, safe and affective approaches in the middle.

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. The Sleep Nanny System devises a bespoke plan just for you and your unique situation because every family, lifestyle, personality and circumstance is unique.

I appreciate any skepticism you (or more likely, your partner) might have, as I have been there also – Don’t be afraid, ask us anything you need to know to help make a decision that’s right for you. It won’t cost you a penny to ask. Having learnt as much as I have, I feel blessed that my Son has been a challenge with his sleep because he is part of the inspiration that made me want to pass on the gift of sleep to other tired parents.

I hand select and train my Certified Sleep Nanny Consultants to help you. I wish to make it a normality to seek the help of a sleep consultant.

My mission is simple – I want to change as many lives as possible for the better by giving the gift of sleep, helping families to feel refreshed and able to enjoy better quality time together.

What a difference ONE COACHING CALL makes!!
Mum, Michelle says.."I felt so desperate when we spoke and when you’re in that moment, it’s so hard to see a light at the end of a tunnel. Just goes to show a few small changes and consistency goes a long way!"

Lois (age 2) was waking super early every morning and struggling to nap at nursery. The family were exhausted.

We put a plan in place and this is what Michelle said..."Lois woke up at 06:40 today! I’ve gradually increased the wake-up time on her clock to 06:30, but today she woke up a good 10mins after it! I can’t believe the difference since our call 2wks ago".

You and your family could be sleeping better too. Drop us a message today to find out how we can help you solve your sleep challenges.

Is your little one resisting a second nap during the day?

If they are somewhere between 13 and 17 months then it is likely that they may be ready to transition from 2 naps to just the one.

This can be complicated and it can be on and off for a number of weeks so you need to be prepared.

Check out this weeks YouTube video where I answer the following questions;
- When is your little one ready to transition from 2 nap to 1?
- What are the signs?
- How do you navigate this when they don’t sleep at the ideal times?
- And how long will this transition take?

Drop me a thumbs up in the comments below if you think your little one is ready to drop down to one nap.
