When Archie was 9 months old, we moved him into his own bedroom and disturbed what had previously been a good period of sleep. He started to really fight bedtimes and would only go to sleep being patted, shushed and rocked – this could take a long time and he could be awake again within 30 minutes.For the next few months we were traipsing backward and forward throughout the night until inevitably he would end up in our bed. We couldn’t continue like this; we were all constantly unwell as our bodies were not given a chance to rest, my other half was sleeping on an airbed and Archie was so miserable throughout the day that it got to the point that I had to admit to my partner that I wasn’t enjoying being a mother anymore, something no mum ever wants to admit.We realised we needed help and I found Leigh online. I have to admit that I didn’t think anybody would be able to help. Our baby was a cuddly one who had been rocked to sleep since birth and I didn’t believe that he would accept going to sleep any other way. I didn’t want to leave my baby to get upset either.We had our 1 hour consultation to discuss the bespoke plan Leigh had put together and I walked away from my laptop feeling unstoppable. The method we discussed was similar to those I had read about online, but it was gentle and I was given indepth information and support that was just incredible. I felt excited to start the following night and, thanks to Leigh, I was filled with so much confidence and determination that we deflated the airbed and put it away.I’m pleased to say that it has not been out again since. We have been given our evenings and night times back and we are all feeling much healthier and happier as a family. Archie now goes to sleep in minutes with very little help from us.I would happily recommend Leigh to anybody. She was encouraging and friendly and the support she provided was brilliant. She was easy to talk to and did very well to be present, but not to be contacting me constantly. I felt like I was admitting defeat when I first started researching Sleep Consultants, but I can say now that there is no pride in suffering and you definitely cannot put a price on a good nights sleep! 5* out of 5Click here to book a complimentary chat with Leigh.
Finding Lucy was an absolute god send! Our 2 year old daughter would not sleep in her own bed for nearly a year and would wake throughout the night constantly. We basically had no sleep of any quality or length for such a long period of time. However, doing Lucy’s programme of suggestions tailor made for our family really helped. It became much easier than I ever thought possible to get our little one back to sleeping in her bed without fuss and for the last 2 nights, our daughter has slept all the way through from 7:00pm until 6:30am. I wished that we had found Lucy a long time ago, but so happy now things are sorted, I feel we can get our life back and have evenings as well as good quality sleep through the night that is no longer disturbed. Our daughter is happier, more rested and life is good! Thank you Lucy so very much, we will recommend you to everyone!Co-sleeping and constant night wakings
The moment I spoke with Lucy I felt so at ease and totally comfortable…… Lucy’s advice and guidance is amazing and I recommend to anyone who’s having problems with their baby’s sleep (or lack of it) Harry went from waking through the night constantly to sleeping from 7pm – 6am! In less than 2 weeks.\u00a0 It’s a gentle way to train your baby, so no leaving baby crying for ages – which was really important for me.\u00a0 Harry wakes refreshed – ready to start the day, brilliant day naps and we are all round a happier house!\u00a0 Thanks again Lucy. Definitely recommend! xx Was not sleeping through the night
We contacted Lucy after she was recommended by a friend. We were struggling to night wean our 21 month old son. I breastfed him to sleep and was the only one who was able to settle him at night. He used to wake every 2-3 hours for a feed / to be resettled. Since working with Lucy Mylo goes to sleep without being fed, will now fall asleep with my husband and sleeps from 7:00pm until 6:00am. We literally could it be more pleased with the way things have gone. Lucy made sure we were comfortable with each stage and helped us break stages down further so we could go at our own pace and so it was right for our family. We are so grateful for the help and advice she has given us. Would highly recommend Lucy to anyone who wants to get a better nights’ sleep. Thanks again Lucy. Breastfed to sleep and would not settle with anyone else
I cannot thank Leigh enough for the help and support she has given to myself and my family over the past month. We begin the process with a complimentary phone call which confirmed to me that Leigh was professional, articulate and had a wealth of knowledge not just about child and baby sleep but also child development. Leigh created a bespoke sleep plan for our baby boy which considered not just the sleep goals but also the sleep environment and our child’s personality and unfortunately bad reflux. Leigh was approachable and helpful throughout the process and couldn’t have been more supportive. Within days the evening routine was successfully instrumented and the dummy went quickly after that. Leigh and I spoke regularly on the phone, amending the sleep plan as necessary and ensuring together we were meeting our sons sleep needs. Within two weeks our son was in his own room in the evening and sleeping without sleep crutches. We can’t thank her enough.Click here to book a complimentary chat with Leigh.
We contacted Lucy after a month of difficult, sleepless nights with our 7 month old son, Ralph. He would wake several times a night, often for several hours, and he would always end up in bed with us. We knew we had fallen into bad habits but couldn’t make sense of all the different advice in the baby books and online. The Sleep Nanny, Lucy, removed all doubt, creating a tailor made sleeping plan to suit us all and offering tips and advice on the best way to implement the plan. Lucy then supported us through her group calls, listening to the issues we were having and where necessary, tweaking our plan to overcome these difficulties.Within 10 days Ralph’s sleeping was so much better. He now goes down at 7:00pm soothing himself to sleep and sleeping through until 6:00am. We feel confident that we now have the necessary skills to ensure he continues to sleep well and we know what to do if he had a bad night. We would wholeheartedly recommend anyone who is struggling with their little ones sleep to contact The Sleep Nanny.Co-sleeping after being awake most of the night
From the moment I got in contact with Lucy I knew our lives (in particular our nights!) were about to get so much better! After speaking face to face through Skype I felt full of confidence to put a new sleep plan into action and began that very night! With Lucy to hold our hand and guide us through any hiccups little George (6 months) now completely self-settles to sleep and from waking every hour now only wakes once!! Lucy is amazing – she made me feel like our sleepless nights could be conquered and she was there every step of the way! I cannot thank her enough! If you’re reading this and contemplating getting in touch – don’t hesitate any longer! Lucy has changed our lives.Waking regularly through the night and not settling well
I am lost for words! I just want to thank you SO much. After feeling like I had totally lost control and there was no light at the end of a very long dark tunnel, my 8 month old daughter has just slept through for a straight 11 hours only on night 2 of the \fade out\ approach. I am one very happy mummy this morning. Thank you so much for your words and advice.
I was at a real low with poor sleep for 2 months. I was so tired I couldn’t think how to fix it. Lucy understood the problem straight away with the initial one hour session. She made sure all the interventions we made were manageable for me and my husband. Jonah was sleeping through the night within 10 days, and not disturbing me until the sun came up after about 4 days! He is bright eyed and flourishing. And I feel so much more confident going on holiday knowing I have someone to call if it all goes wrong on my return!
Amazing results my 19 month was waking 4-5 times a night, only after a week and a half with Lucy’s help he sleeps through the night, thank you so much.Constant night wakings
