I'm So Glad You're Here...
Whoever you are, we’ve got you.
Whether your baby is waking multiple times each night, won’t nap, or will only fall asleep by feeding. We're here to help. Sleep is something we all deserve and consistently good sleep can be achieved in a short period of time with some practical advice and easy changes.
When I was pregnant with our first baby, my husband and I talked a lot about our excitement and fears. By far our biggest fear was the sleep deprivation, we are both people who need our sleep and didn't want to end up in separate bedrooms so that one of us could get a few hours' rest. So I decided to really delve deep into the subject of sleep, reading lots, researching and listening to podcasts to see if there was a way to make the first few months (and years!) better - good even - as far as sleep was concerned.
After our baby was born we gently started to nudge him into a routine from a few weeks old, which suited us. Plus, being a lockdown baby there wasn’t much else to do! He was sleeping 8 hour stretches by 10 weeks and slept through the night from four and a half months old. He has never had a disturbed night or regression since. His naps are reliable and he is a happy, healthy (and happily attached!) little boy.
I loved seeing the sleep theory I had learned put into practice. I saw so clearly how routine, alongside an optimal sleep environment and teaching the skill of falling asleep independently really worked. So, I decided to train as a Sleep Consultant to help other families and two years on, we've helped over one thousand parents to transform sleep.
Sleep deprivation is a form of torture for a reason, it is hell. It makes you cranky, it breaks down relationships, it sucks the energy and fun out of the day and it is no way to live. Babies want fully functioning, happy, thriving adults for parents so that we can be our best selves and find the joy in parenting and in the every day.
Our style of working is no-nonsense delivered in a caring way. There is zero blame, shame or talk of sleep "mistakes" you might feel you have made. You are the expert in your baby and we are here to bring the sleep expertise; together we are partners.

Meet The Team
Hi I’m Kristy, mummy of two; Alfie 3 and Poppy 1. I have a background in education and have worked as a teacher for 13 years, most recently at a primary school in London.
A little about my sleep journey, Alfie was not a good sleeper or a happy newborn for that matter. He was on antibiotics from birth and had reflux. I had longed to go for nice long walks with my baby in a pram and meeting friends. My reality was far from that! He spent lots of time in the sling during the day and our nights were exhausting. The reflux resolved at around 5 months old, but it wasn’t until 7 months that I decided to seek help. I realised none of us could carry on with such little sleep.
Within a week, Alfie was sleeping in his cot for naps and doing a two hour lunchtime nap. I couldn’t believe it! Night wakes reduced to just one and within two weeks he had stopped waking for a feed. My husband and I could make plans to go out in the evenings – eeek! And we had a happy, well-rested baby.
I trained to become a sleep consultant when I fell pregnant with my little girl. I put all of my knowledge into practice after Poppy was born and have seen firsthand how introducing the foundations gently from the start can absolutely pay off.
I am so passionate about baby’s sleep and want to support and enable parents to get the wellbeing and sleep they need for their family. I’m here to give you the tools you need to create positive sleep patterns for your little one and I can’t wait to meet you!
Hello, my name is Rachel and I'm mummy to 2 lovely little boys, Archie 4 and Teddy 2. They keep me busy and it can be chaos but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Sleep deprivation can be brutal! I have been there and know just how tough it can be. When Archie was little he woke every hour at night and I was driving him around for all his naps or carrying him in the sling. I had such anxiety about his naps and dreaded the nighttimes. I was broken, my marriage was strained and it was really taking a toll on my mental health. I felt so alone and like I was doing everything wrong. Google was my best friend but provided me none of the answers I was looking for on how to get him to sleep!
We hired a sleep consultant when he was 10 months old and it really was life changing. He started sleeping through the night and has done so ever since. I couldn't believe it! I was convinced he was just a 'bad' sleeper. The help we were given was transformational and saved me in so many ways.
From that moment I knew that I wanted to be able to do that for other parents. That is why I trained to be a sleep consultant; I want to be able to help as many families as possible so they don't feel so desperate and alone. If your little one's sleep isn't working for you, there are absolutely things that can be done and I'm so excited to help you.
