“Me and my husband hired Kate to help us get our 14 month old sleeping through the night before our next one arrived. I really wanted to work with Kate because I’d seen some of her Facebook training and live videos, and I really felt relaxed and comfortable with her. We are also quite reactive parents so it was important for us to work with someone who doesn’t promote the crying it out technique. We also didn’t want to not be able to comfort him when he was getting worked up at sleep times. Both things we knew Kate’s training approaches could support.
Our biggest concern about hiring a sleep consultant was spending all that money and it not working, but after a couple of calls to talk through our sleep problems and general concerns, we felt totally reassured and completed trusted Kate. We are so glad we did because the changes have been so positive.
Since Kate visited us in May and prepared us a tailored sleep plan, we have been amazed by how easy and quickly it helped our little one sleep. Before, he was waking in the night at least three or four times and needed us to help him get back to sleep (we also got into a habit of bringing him into our bed with us just so we could all get some sleep), but within 3 days of us starting the plan he was sleeping through every night and has been ever since. He’s learnt to self settle and his daytime naps have also improved. We can also continue to go about our daily lives without being restricted to fixed nap times, something which was important for us as a family.
Not only has the sleep training given us all better (and much more consistent) sleep, our little boy is also so much happier. He has always been a happy little one but we’ve realised how getting a good nights sleep means he is even more content than before.
We still can’t believe the positive changes this had had on the whole family and we can’t thank Kate enough. The support throughout the training was fantastic and it gave us the reassurance we needed if we started to question our approach.
Thank you Kate! You really are the magic sleep nanny!!”
