Leigh came to our lives to save us. We have been sleep deprived for 2 years – since our daughter, Julia, was born. We have tried different techniques and read few books, but we weren’t able to help our daughter to settle down and sleep through the night. Julia had most of the \u2018common’ problems: she would fight to go to sleep, consistently wake during the night, consistently come out of her bed, wake up early (around 4.30am), separation anxiety, to name few. Since our first chat Leigh gave us hope, and we felt that we could trust her completely. She is a loving and spectacular human being, and during our journey she always demonstrated that she really cared about our family’s health. She helped us making informed decision and created a plan that worked perfectly to our family. We strongly recommend Leigh to all parents and carers – even to the ones who have children that sleep through the night without much problem -, as we think that the information she provides can guarantee that the parents have a thorough understanding of the sleeping process and can be conscious of their role on that.Click here to book a complimentary chat with Leigh.
We contacted Lucy when our 7.5mth old was waking in early hours and also deciding that 4:30am was an appropriate let’s start the day time! Within 2 weeks he was self-settling, sleeping though the night (6:30pm – 6:00am) and we had also got rid of his dummy. Daytime naps are still a challenge but we have the tools to work through this and he is getting better each week. Lucy tailored the programme to our needs (we also have a 3 year old) and with her support and guidance we now have the confidence to recognise sleep cues that we previously weren’t picking up on. We would definitely recommend Lucy to anyone who needs help with their children’s sleep. Early riser and waking in the early hours
Lucy is absolutely wonderful. She’s guided us to help our 4 month old to learn to self-settle, using a method suitable for her. Megan was waking a few times a night but the main problem was daytime naps as she would have 30 minutes if that and wake up tired and miserable. I spent everyday dreading nap time. Bedtime was always a long struggle too as she was so overtired.\u00a0 Now Megan sleeps at least 12 hours at night with one night feed and self-settles for naps really well and stays asleep for decent lengths of time. In fact I often have to wake her up in the morning!! She loves her sleep and can’t seem to get enough of it. She wakes up happy and smiley which makes it all worthwhile. Megan can still be a bit hard to settle at bedtime but still she has made such fantastic progress to get from 2.5 hours of crying/rocking/feeding each night to about 30 minutes of fussing.\u00a0 Couldn’t recommend Lucy highly enough, she’s been such a support and it’s so reassuring to know you have such an expert to speak to and guide you through the journey. AND ALSO\u2026..Lucy has now helped me with my 2 year old who had started climbing out of bed dozens of times a night and was waking early in the morning, anytime from 4:30am but usually about 5:00am and as a result was constantly overtired. He’s now sleeping much better than he was and the average wake up time has changed to 6:00am which is a huge improvement!!! I feel I now have the tools I need to deal with these sorts of issues in the future too!! Thank you so much Lucy, you’re a gem! Non-existent daytime naps and an early riser who was always tired
I wanted to email to say thank you for all of your help. When I started this process, I was suffering with severe post natal anxiety and had a baby who was sleeping all over the place, multiple wakings / feeds in the night, naps which were massively inconsistent and generally were 30 minutes or 3hours. Within 7 days of working with you, Carys slept through the night for the first time with a dream feed and about 2 weeks after that, we dropped the dream feed and she is still sleeping through the night from 7-7. Her first nap on day 1 was an hour and 10 minutes…amazing and since hen she has settled into a three nap routine. The best thing about it, Carys is happy, I am happy, my anxiety is hugely reduced and we have time in the evenings to be a couple again rather than going to bed at 8 every night, dreading what was to come. The whole process was kind and gentle and I have never felt like we are putting through Carys through a hard process which was very important to me. Thank you so much. I used to do an app with feeds and sleep on it (pink feeds and purple sleep!!) and the difference is incredible!!! Thank you again :)Catnapping, feeding all night, post natal anxiety
We were sleep deprived and barely functioning; day time naps were a battle and the nights were becoming unbearable with our little one refusing to go into his cot and waking every hour. Now our little one puts himself to sleep and loves his cot. We would never have managed this without Leigh’s help, guidance and support – priceless!

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
