Wilbur was around 7 months (April 2019) when we realised, we couldn’t continue with all the broken sleep – we were exhausted.Kevin was going to work in sunglasses and I was trying to get through the day rather than enjoying it with our boy.Wilbur was exhausted too. He wasn’t napping more than 30 mins a day and was waking every few hours in the night and was irritable and frustrated. Wilbur is such a happy baby and we wanted him to be like this all the time.We were using a multitude of \u2018tricks’ to get him back to sleep. Milk on demand, falling asleep on us or on the bed; we were singing, sssshhhhhing and rocking.All of these worked in their own small way but took time, were temporary and often he would wake when we stopped.I was emotional and felt like I was failing, aren’t mummies supposed to be able to get their baby to sleep?I decided to look online for sleep nannies and \u2018The Sleep Nanny’ came up. I read through some of the profiles and something about Leigh just felt right and this was confirmed after her initial phone call. I remember how buoyant I felt after that call and how positive she was. She wasn’t interested in what we had done but what she could do to help us. Just what I needed. I hung up and knew she was going to be the helping hand we needed.Leigh listened to our family needs and dynamics and asked such insightful questions which meant she was able to put together a bespoke plan for our family. She was positive, kind and so lovely that we knew this was going to work for us. And it did.Within a day Wilbur was napping for 3 hours a day and was being to self-settle at night something we had been doing for him. He learnt the skill so quickly and is able to do this at nap and bed time.He now goes through the night and is happier and has more energy (which is a different type of exhaustion!)My husband and I feel so much better as we are having more sleep and I am able to be a better mummy in the day as I have more energy. I know that even if I am feeling tired, I can have a decent nap myself when Wilbur is sleeping.Leigh IS fantastic. Her continual support and advice have been invaluable, and we know we have the plan to go back to if we ever need it.Never once did she make us feel like we had done anything wrong, her advice is all goal focused and we knew it was manageable and structured so we could achieve our sleep goals together.We recommend her to support your family with any sleep needs. She knows her stuff!We would give her 5 stars! She is our star.Click here to book a complimentary chat with Leigh.
Thanks to the wonderful support and encouragement from Lucy our 7 month old baby Heidi’s sleep has improved beyond recognition! Before we began the sleep programme I would never have believed the progress you can make in such a short space of time but within 2 weeks we went from Heidi being rocked to sleep every night and waking every 2 hours to her settling herself to sleep within 20mins and waking only once or twice in the night….incredible! The techniques Lucy has helped us to put in place have been so gentle that not once have I felt uneasy with the process. I now feel like we have an excellent structure to bedtime and Heidi is sleeping longer and longer without waking as she learns to settle herself back to sleep throughout the night more confidently. I would 100% recommend you get in touch with Lucy if, like us, you are dreading night times and surviving on very little sleep! Your life could be completely different within just a few days! Rocking to sleep and waking every two hours all night
We started working with Hayley about 3-4 weeks ago, I was dubious – my 11 month old co-slept, woke every 2-3 hours, bf to sleep at night, woke for 2 hours in the middle of the night almost every night for 4 months and was rocked to sleep for naps or slept on his pram or the car!!!! I was exhausted and went back to work this week! \ud83d\ude34\ud83d\ude34\ud83d\ude34Within days of working with Hayley we noticed a difference and by night 4/5 we weren’t getting the long two hour night wakes, by two weeks he was sleeping in his own cot for 10/11/12 hours a night!! \ud83e\udd733/4 weeks after we are seeing a massive improvement in his naps times too!! Yes we have the odd night he wakes but can also settle himself back to sleep too \ud83d\ude01 he also now wakes in a happy mood and not waking crying every morning \ud83e\udd70Hayley advises you on the best approach for your little one for your desired goals and you just have to implement the plan and be CONSISTENT! Yes there maybe times when it’s hard work but it works and you have to trust the process!! Now I’m back at work and need to start training myself to stop waking up at 5am \ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02 just wish we had done it sooner Thank you Hayley \u263a\ufe0fClick here to book a complimentary chat with Hayley.
It took me a while to call Lucy and I am so glad I did and wish I had done so sooner. I worried about the cost but our lives were on hold through sleep deprivation and it was the best money I have ever spent, we now have our lives back! And not only that, we have achieved the previously thought impossible- up to three hours of cot naps a day, so I have time to myself in the day and a very happy baby. By the end of the first week my baby had learned to go to sleep on his own in his cot and by the end of the second week night wakings were reduced. He has since slept through the night three times and this is a huge improvement for us. Lucy is very approachable and was sympathetic and supportive of my gentle parenting methods and breast feeding and at no stage did I feel anything we implemented was too difficult for my little boy to accept. I would recommend to anyone in my position.Poor daytime napping and regular night waker
In just two weeks my 8 month old has gone through a life changing transformation\u00a0from waking every hour to sleeping through the night!!! Amazing support and encouragement from Lucy, simple to apply tools and really effective techniques… Unless you are 100% happy with how your child is sleeping I would recommend you have a chat with her. Restful uninterrupted sleep is invaluable! Before working with Lucy I was at the end of my tether and exhausted… Now Henry settles himself and is sleeping through the night in his own cot! No more rocking/bouncing/feeding him to sleep every hour…no more ninja like moves required to get out of his room undetected… no more night feeds… He is much happier during the day and he is much better at napping too. I feel like a new well rested woman and I finally have some time to myself during the day and in the evenings! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Constant night wakings and being bounced to sleep
We first started working with Leigh when our son Max was 11 months old.The problems we were experiencing seemed like they were never ending and the thought of a full night’s sleep felt so far away. It was time for some professional help.We had our reservations because the routine we had felt like it couldn’t be changed.Our son was reliant on numerous methods- Required motion to fall asleep – Waking for unnecessary feeds- Seperation anxiety- Depended on the dummy- Unable to resettleLeigh reassured us these were common solvable issues. She put together a bespoke sleep plan based around max’s sleeping habits. We followed the plan without deviation and it proved to have the desired effect.Leigh was professional, friendly, put us at ease and gave us the confidence to implement the new routine. We now have a baby that sleeps not only through the night but is consistently managing 11 to 12 hours. The results have been exactly what we set out for, and we have all benefited as you can imagine. Max is doing absolutely brilliantly.We would highly recommend Leigh and wouldn’t hesitate to contact her again should we need to. Thanks for all your help, a very happy Kevin, Laura and Max xx (11 months)Click here to book a complimentary chat with Leigh.
Before starting the sleep training, no one in our house was sleeping! Olivia was coming into our bed around midnight every night and rarely settled even when there. She often woke throughout the evening too and was very difficult to settle. Getting her to sleep could take hours so we could never make plans in the evening – even just to eat! We had to rock her in a chair and she often woke on being transferred to the cot. As soon as she roused slightly if we weren’t there she would get very upset.I can’t believe she is the same child! We put her in her cot, walk out of the room and close the door and she is happy chatting to herself until she falls asleep. She now sleeps through the night without a whimper!I was adamant that I wouldn’t do ‘controlled crying’ which is the reason I had put off sleep training for so long, but the process we followed was very gentle and I was able to comfort Olivia as much as she needed. It was hard work, but most definitely worth it! I couldn’t have completed the process without Sarah’s advice. Her understanding of child psychology and explanation of what Olivia really needed gave me the confidence to keep going in the knowledge that I really was doing what was best for my daughter. She was understanding of the fact that the routine can’t always be perfect!I would wholeheartedly recommend Sarah and her programme. We have a much happier, more confident little girl, who is getting the sleep that she needs. Click here to book a complimentary chat with Sarah.
Where do I begin, finding and contacting Heidi was like a breath of fresh air..I have two littles ones, a girl age 33 months and a boy 18 months, both had been sleeping well till recently everything went a bit up in the air.. My daughter was still sleeping in a cot with a bottle as a comforter, with Heidi’s amazing support and help I found the confidence to transition her to a big bed (almost sleeps through alone) WITHOUT a bottle. Yes! We conquered what we thought was impossible and all get a much better nights sleep.. I can’t praise/recommend Heidi enough, we have come such a long way and thank you for your help, support and guidance.. any sleep deprived parents get on to Heidi now!!Click here to book a complimentary chat with Heidi.
Eileen helped me with my 2 year old who would scream for hours at night after having been unwell. I needed help quickly as my husband was about to go away for several weeks. Eileen was very knowledgeable and professional, and it all clicked very quickly for us. I am so grateful for Eileen, who was only a phonecall/message away and who regularly checked up on us. I feel now very confident with our bedtimes which I used to absolutely dread, and I am confident that I will be able to use all the advice Eileen gave me on my youngest. Thank you Eileen.Click here to book a complimentary chat with Eileen.
We have recently completed our 2 weeks course with Hayley. This was fantastic experience and the best Xmas gift for all of us\u00a0:)\u00a0Before the program our 12m old son was waking up 8-10 during a night! I was so exhausted especially I knew that I need to go back to work. I’m breastfeeding and I think that was our main issue as Anthony wanted to be with me constantly.When we met Hayley I didn’t believe that after only 2 weeks our son will actually sleep 11h! We have tried so many different methods so we knew that it won’t be easy…. but it was! At the end of program Anthony was sleeping 11 h during a night and 2-2.5h during a day! Also he doesn’t eat at night! We are so happy and will definitely recommend Hayley to everyone! Thank you once again Hayley xClick here to book a complimentary chat with Hayley.
