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.
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.
