I spent ages deliberating whether to have a sleep consultant – I was pretty cynical about whether anything would solve our early waking issues – but it was absolutely money well spent and something I wish I had done much earlier! I have two boys, Alfie, 7, and Elliott, nearly 2, and both have been fab sleepers except for the mornings starting as early as 4am, with a good morning being 5.30am. I could never really work out why because I’ve always been super consistent and had a really solid, good bedtime routine from very early on. Elliott was 21 months old when I contacted Lucy. She was lovely to deal with – very sympathetic and never patronising. After our initial Skype call I was still fairly skeptical and it was a tough month trying to put things into place when he really didn’t like the idea of changing. Now we are nearly 2 months in and Elliott regularly sleeps 6.45pm-6am and we’ve even had some mornings nearer 7am! Life seems so much better when you’re sleeping properly, and I’m so glad I made the move to get help.Early rising 4.30 daily and overtired
I can’t recommend Heidi enough!! She has been such a support for myself and my husband over the last few weeks. Our daughter Ava is 1 and has always been cuddled and rocked to sleep. Which was fine as a baby but it had progressed into a problem where she refused to go in her cot at all so we had to wait until she was deeply asleep. This meant nighttime wake ups could last two or three hours! Heidi was so amazing right from the start and immediately made me feel like I could talk to her and had a friend rather than someone I had just contacted for help! She put a great plan into place for Ava and was there through the tears of frustration and the joy of finally making progress! Any time I needed a boost or some words to keep me going she was there. She made the whole process of the two week plan so much better. Ava now sleeps in her own cot and we can put her down as soon as bedtime routine is over. We still have a little way to go to get her to settle herself entirely but this is purely due to circumstance and Heidi is still there for me whenever I need…. Honestly one of the nicest people and supportive sleep nanny I have ever spoken to!!!!Click here to book a complimentary chat with Heidi.
As you know, our son had been waking in the night for 6 months!! It just goes to show that with the right technique to suit the individual child, they can learn to sleep well within a week or two and with a gentle technique that doesn’t require stressing the child or parents out! He is also napping better in the day as a result.Constant night waking for over 6 months
Heidi is fantastic. I first contacted Heidi as I was worried about making first time mum parenting mistakes (something I think every first time mum worries about). Zachary was only 16 weeks old but we had started introducing a routine and putting him to bed at 7pm but my husband and I were up and down about 10 times before 10pm and he was waking multiple times over night, and understandably it was causing tension in our relationship. Heidi was fantastic she guided us through every step to help him start to self settle, she made me feel human and actually really capable as a mum which is an amazing thing to be able to do. She helped us with overnight settling and gave me advice on feeding and day time naps. Within a couple of days we were having dinner together downstairs and Zachary was sleeping through from 7 until we gave him a dream feed about 10pm. Heidi also went above and beyond and helped me when we ended up at the doctors as Zachary wasn’t very well. She gave me advice on what to say and kept me calm. To say working with Heidi has changed my journey as a mum is an understatement she has given me a confidence that I am good mum and given me the skills to give Zachary the best start in life. She is thoughtful and knowledgeable and I firmly believe can help anyone who is willing to listen and follow the plan, as hard as it is at times. Zachary now goes to bed at 7, we are still dream feeding him at 11 but he only wakes up once from that time until between 6-7am but he’s only 18 weeks old. I feel confident that if I remain consistent he will very soon get results and I can’t wait until I can tell Heidi this news. Thank you for everything you are amazing and have helped Zachary and my husband and I more than you can imagine. \ud83d\ude0a\ud83d\ude0a\ud83d\ude0aClick here to book a complimentary chat with Heidi.
After 15 months of broken sleep and daytime naps taken in the car or in the baby carrier I decided that things had to change. I found Lucy online and after reading the various feedback as well as how Lucy works I contacted her….\u00a0Immediately I felt comfortable chatting to her about the position we’d got in to… Lucy didn’t judge me, in fact she empathised and took time to understand how and why which made me relax and I was very keen and excited to get started!\u00a0\u00a0 I had got into a habit with my youngest daughter for ‘ease’ of her napping in the carrier so I could be on hand for my oldest daughter however at 15 months old this wasn’t working anymore!\u00a0\u00a0She wasn’t getting the quality of sleep and my oldest wasn’t getting quality time with mummy… I was feeling very guilty all of the time!\u00a0\u00a0 At night my youngest was still feeding to sleep and waking up numerous times to feed back to sleep so more often than not would end up in bed with me! My husband and I didn’t have any time together either – cue more guilt!!!!\u00a0\u00a0 I wanted a gentle solution with as little crying (from me and baby) as possible and I was also keen to continue feeding.\u00a0 Lucy took all this on board and made a plan of action that suited our circumstances.\u00a0 The first night was tough and had I not had Lucy to speak to the following morning I may have given in but I didn’t and for the first time my daughter slept for 6 hours straight!!!! Amazing!! I couldn’t believe it – we were delighted!\u00a0 Within a couple of days she was settling herself to sleep without much fuss and sleeping from 7 until 4am without a problem….\u00a0\u00a0 She’s still not totally sleeping through yet and we’ve had the odd hiccup but Lucy has given me the skills and the confidence to know what to do and how to manage this!\u00a0 Our daytime naps are also much better too, she’s in her cot and no longer reliant on feeding, the car or the carrier to sleep!\u00a0\u00a0This now free’s my time up to play properly with my older daughter which has made us both so happy. \u00a0Lucy is still on hand once the initial support is complete and I’m really enjoying being part of her members sleep club….\u00a0\u00a0 I would 100% recommend Lucy – she really knows her stuff and has totally helped our household.\u00a0\u00a0 A big thank you from us X\u00a0 Napping issues and overtired child
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.
