Read a few words on what some of my happy mums and dads have said about working with me.
After nine months of not sleeping we decided it was time to get in touch with an expert to help our daughter MXXXX to sleep! It had got to the stage of her waking every hour at night and ‘needing’ me to offer her a milk feed or rock her back to sleep.
We were really reluctant to sleep train as we didn’t want to have to let our much doted on daughter cry but Kelly was so understanding of our situation and the crying/protesting has been minimal!
MXXXX is only two weeks into sleep training and is sleeping through the night from 7-7, it’s an absolute dream and we could NEVER have got to this point without Kelly. Her advice, personalised plan and support has been just incredible. MXXXX is so much more content; although she has always been a happy baby she is now super happy! As parents so are we! We feel like we’ve got our lives back on track, we’re planning our first date night since our beautiful baby arrived and couldn’t recommend Kelly highly enough.
We contacted Kelly when our daughter was nearly 7 months old after seeing her recommended on Facebook. We were at our wits end as our baby had NEVER EVER napped anywhere other than on someone’s shoulder, needed rocking to sleep day and night and “slept” in bed with us every night (often waking for long periods in the early hours). We had no evenings as we couldn’t put her down until we went to bed with her. I also breastfed throughout the night to soothe her back to sleep. Everyone was exhausted and there was no sign of any improvement, so we decided that we needed to do something.
Kelly was very confident that she could help us but I laughed when she said that we would be able to just put baby in her cot and have time to ourselves in the day/evening. It seemed impossible. Still, we took the plunge and arranged a home visit, then got stuck in to the plan the next day.
I am not going to suggest that the plan was easy, as our daughter definitely made Kelly (and us) work hard! But, on night 1 after the first settling period she slept in her cot all night (with a few wake-ups) without us needing to go in, let alone feed her or rock her to sleep! In fact, on the whole we have now had almost 4 weeks of sleeping through the night, with a few blips here and there.
The day naps took longer and we are still working on these, but, from zero naps in the cot “pre-Kelly”, baby now gets much better sleep in the day. We have even managed a few days where she has had a full 2 hour sleep in the morning AND another hour in the afternoon!
Throughout the process Kelly was hugely supportive and kept us on track, with regular calls to check in and tons of advice over email/text. There is no way that we could have done it by ourselves - I think we would have given up on day 1!
4 weeks in and it’s hard to remember just how bad things were before we started. We wish that we had contacted Kelly sooner, rather than waiting to see if things would get better on their own. We are all so much happier and less tired!
Mum to baby girl of 7 months
I cannot recommend Kelly enough. I decided to seek her help with my 10-month-old twins. They weren’t bad sleepers but where starting to wake early and where all over the place with naps. I had tried a few programmes on line but didn’t have the confidence or knowledge to see it through. Straight away I felt at ease with Kelly and in the two weeks she supported me and gave me the confidence to follow the plan and see the results. Both babies now nap twice a day at the same times and sleep 7pm – 7am – I have much happier babies and parents. Defiantly money well spent!

Within a few nights of following the personalised plan that Kelly developed for us, my 7 month old baby (whom had never slept more than an hour or so at a time) was self-settling and sleeping through the night for the first time ever. We are now a few months down the line and things couldn’t be better. My baby is happy, full of energy and actively enjoys going to bed, and I no longer dread the nights. I can honestly say Kelly worked miracles for us, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any parent struggling with a little sleep thief.
Kelly is incredible and I urge any Mums/Parents who have been battling with sleep issues to go to her!
Rory had slept possibly 7 nights through the night after his 16 week injections up until the age of 28 months!! Most nights I was up for 2-3hours sitting on the landing. Two weeks ago after feeling I’d tried everything I got in contact with Kelly. I honestly didn’t believe she would be able to help us. We spoke a lot and she tailored Rory his own sleep plan which I was hugely apprehensive about but after being sleep deprived for so long I threw all my trust in her and did everything she asked. With her amazing support 2 days in Rory slept through the night independently and 2 weeks later he sleeps through the night without his milk, dummy, white noise, he’s not cuddled to sleep. I simple say goodnight and leave for 12 hours!! ….. and he now loves going to bed!!! (I’ve totally just jinxed it now haven’t I!) If you are even thinking about it just do it! She’s bloomin’ fantastic and in my eyes an angel who has made my boy sleep and be so much happier for it!!!!
We can’t thank her enough!!
