"The moment Annie arrived she put me completely at ease with her warmth, kind and down to earth manner. She is very sensitive to new parents and realises that they are often feeling overwhelmed and need help but in a practical and supportive way.
She instantly recognised that we needed to tweak Oscar’s feeding schedule and to start him on a regular evening routine that he would recognise as bedtime. We saw the difference in the quality of all our lives almost immediately!" (K. Mansfield)
“We contacted infant sleep consultants regarding our 7 month old, we were at our wits end, exhausted and even as a couple we were arguing due to lack of sleep! Our daughter would not sleep through the night, constant waking and naps in the day were non-existent unless they were on me and rocked!
We were passed over to Katie and I have to say I never write reviews or give feedback but felt I needed to! It was the best thing we did!
Katie explained why our daughter wasn't sleeping and took us through every step of the sleep training, but it was all tailored to our daughter! I found that books and websites give you all this advice but nothing beats tailored advice and having someone there for support!
After 3 nights of hard-work she slept through we could not believe it! We were expecting weeks of hell! But we are now 2 months on and she still sleeps through, she even naps every day in her cot and all of this is done putting her down awake!
Also Katie gave us the confidence to know when our daughter needed us or if she was just testing us, this made a massive difference. They maybe little babies but they know what they are doing!
So if any of you are considering contacting the infant sleep consultants do it... you will not regret it!
Thank you so much Katie!” (K Horsman)
"Helen's knowledgeable and sensitive support has transformed not only our evening routine but also had a positive effect on the rest of our lives as we are now more informed, calmer and the whole family is sleeping better!" (T. Fern)
"Katie was right there with us through it all. Most importantly she was understanding and supportive. She continually built my confidence as a parent, she always made sure to tell me this was normal and we would get through it. This whole journey has truly transformed our lives."
(Mrs A Borkwood)
"Helen was calm, full of advice and reassurance. She helped us to work out the best approach for our daughter and supported us as we tried to follow things through. She was reassuring and positive on the days things did not go quite 'according to plan' offering alternative approaches and tips. Not only is she happier, we are a much happier family." (E. de Vise-Craig)
"After 10 months of ongoing sleep deprivation courtesy of our gorgeous baby daughter, we had almost reached breaking
point! Our daughter had suffered awful reflux as a young baby & she just hadn't learnt how to settle herself, she was waking nearly every hour through the night.
(Mrs S. Goldsmith)
"When I contacted Katie my 22 week old daughter had started waking 4-5 times a night and I was exhausted. Katie gave brilliant advice, which did not involve leaving my baby to cry for more than a few minutes and within just a few days she was sleeping so much better, waking only once in the night and settling herself within a few minutes. Katie was incredibly supportive throughout and kept in regular contact to see how we were getting on. We were amazed by the fast results".
(Mrs J Howard)
“Helen has transformed our lives! Our son had been having sleep issues since he was 5 months old, he ended up co-sleeping with us and we had given up on trying to get him in his own room. After much thinking, we chose Helen to help us. Helen’s manner was so warm and friendly that my son immediately took to her. She was very knowledgeable, explained all parts of sleep training to me and gave me the confidence to tackle our son’s problem in a considerate and caring way. She advised us on changes we should make to our day routine to help K sleep better during the day and night.
Keep bedtimes calm and have a consistent bedtime routine in place which your baby will learn to adapt to and quickly come to expect, going down to sleep without a fuss.
If your child wakes in the night, try not to rush in too quickly as this sometimes disturbs them and you won't give them the opportunity to settle themselves on their own.
