Testimonials

  • “Before working with Katie, our 10 month old baby was still waking frequently at night, often only settling after milk, and her naps were consistently a struggle. Within a few days, following Katie’s advice, she started settling herself independently at night and was napping without protest in her cot. Within 10 days, we had established a consistent routine, she was sleeping really well at night and was even napping in her travel cot away from home! Katie’s approach is gentle, supportive, non-judgemental and tailor-made not only to our baby but also to my husband and I. Neither of us ever felt uncomfortable with anything Katie recommended we do and every day we had her input and advice on how to improve things further. I feel so much better now that her sleeping is improved - my only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner!" Caroline, mother to Rosa, aged 10 months
  • "Katie has been an absolute lifesaver for us and by far the best money we have ever spent on our daughter! We cannot recommend Katie highly enough - her methods are gentle but effective and the support she gave us with sorting out our daughters sleep issues was invaluable. Before Katie we would spend hours rocking our baby to sleep and would never know how long she would sleep for. She was also dependent on falling asleep with a dummy and white noise. But within 2 weeks our 5 month old daughter was sleeping through the night, and she was able to put herself to sleep without any help from us - the dummy, white noise and rocking were a thing of the past. Now on the rare occasion she does wake up, we know now how to re-settle her within minutes rather than hours. We also have a consistent routine for feeds and naps which has made such a difference to our day to day lives. But most of all we have a happier and very well rested baby!" Aimee, mother to Remi, aged 5 months
  • "Katie was able to get my sleepless, strong willed, high energy toddler to nap when no one else could. Prior to her efforts he would only go down for his nap if I was there and that was only if I let him fall asleep on the breast. Katie was able to get him to sleep on his own, in his cot, without any form of pacifier and without any trauma, tears or tantrums. Miraculous!" Rebecca, mother to Benjamin, aged 22 months
