3 & 1 year old siblings

Kate has brought sleep to our house!

She prepared plans for my 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter. My son had a habitual bottle of milk in the wee hours – a rod I’d created for my own back (as the saying goes) as it had been an easy way of getting him back to sleep when I was back in my stupidly busy job after maternity leave round one.

Fast forward to maternity leave round two with my daughter and I was determined not to go down that road again (and I’d had enough of being up at different points each night with each child). I was feeding my daughter to sleep before putting her in her cotbed and she’d have a bottle in the night. After following Kate’s advice, I now put her into the cot awake and she settles off to sleep with no night feeding or waking. I then ‘tackled’ my son’s bedtime and overnight routine.

He now settles himself off to sleep after a story and the milk has gone! Kate is, basically, a sleep legend. We loved her sensible and utterly do-able (no cry it out, for example) approach and she provided quick advice if anything went off piste. I had Mum shame about my 3 year old still having milk in a bottle at night but there was never any judgement from Kate. I cannot recommend Kate enough and I just wish we’d got in touch with her sooner.
