testimonials & reviews for little sleep coach

Below is some of the lovely feedback from happy (and now rested!) parents Little Sleep Coach has helped … Your child and family deserve to sleep well too.

"Would highly recommend Debs. Quinn is such a happy baby now . In just 2 weeks she is self settling , no dummy, waking only for feeding 1-2 times a night. Our family is much more settled now we have a routine that works. I found the follow up exceeded my expectations and was amazing."

— Jeanette White | September 2019

I’m telling everyone I know about Deb! At three months old Finn was waking every 1.5-2 hours overnight from birth. He only ever slept on me during the day, at random times and only for 40 minutes at a time. I was mentally and physically exhausted.

In less than two weeks, Finn started sleeping and settling on his own in his bassinet during the day, and is now waking once at night to feed. No more pushing a pram for miles, pacing around the lounge for hours or feeding to sleep! We’re a whole new family and cannot be more grateful xxx."

— Jamie Belsar | August 2019

"We couldn’t recommend Deb more. In less than a week, our 10 month old went from co-sleeping and being fed or rocked to sleep to sleeping through the night and for 2-2.5 hours during the day. It was amazing. Deb was extremely patient and non-judgemental. She made time to get to know us and our baby and together we came up with a plan that worked for us - ie one that involved minimal (next to no) crying. Our baby now drifts off to sleep on his own, in his own bed in less than 5 minutes. Deb is a game changer we thoroughly recommend her."  

— Julie Ash | August 2019

"Deb was wonderful at supporting us to help our 6 month old link his sleep cycles. He is such a different baby to our first and I really struggled to know how to best support him so we could all get a better nights sleep. on a bad night he was waking up to 7 times and now he is just waking once for a feed. Deb gave me the confidence to get him settled into a good routine during the day and to stick with our plan even when we were derailed after day three with sickness. It really paid off, thanks for your great support and advice."

Debs completely changed our lives! Henry was 8 months and were in the process of moving cities/houses/housesitting and it was really tough for him. He was always reliant on us to sleep anyway but the move just made everything worse, we were all at breaking point. Debs helped us as a family work out what was best for him and that he was getting what he needed to thrive and of course sleep!! We went from 20-40min sleep cycles feeding and bopping to sleep (all night) and eventually co-sleeping badly to Henry putting himself to sleep in his cot within 5-10mins and sleeping till 7am! If he wakes he puts himself back to sleep and I’m still a little in disbelief we even got to this point. We literally had results after 1 night! We 100% couldn’t have done it without Debs guidance and support and are slightly kicking ourselves we didn’t call her earlier. We are all better people with decent sleep! 💙 
  

— Kate Mason | August 2019

"Deb has been our savior! In just 2 weeks we have gone from having an overtired baby (7mo) who will not link cycles - (waking every 45 min) to a baby who has developed the perfect sleeping pattern day and night! From the beginning, I felt listened to by Deb and trusted her completely. She understood our family and our dynamics and worked out a routine and plan that fits well with our lives and parenting style. It took us a while to decide on sleep coaching as we weren't comfortable with "cry it out" but Deb has proven to us that there is more to a baby learning how to self-settle than crying. Throughout the process, Deb kept in close contact with us that gave us that extra boost of confidence and faith in our babies ability to sleep. I would highly recommend Deb! Thanks heaps :)"

— Sam Carswell | July 2019

"Highly recommend. Deb was lovely to work with and helped my 6 month old get through a difficult sleep time promptly with ease. Deb worked with us to find an approach that suited our family and proved that working with a sleep consultant doesn’t mean leaving your baby to cry it out- a rumour I had heard frequently. By booking Deb I have gained an evening social life again and my son is less fussy day and night, now knowing what his routine is and what the cues that I give him mean. He’s happy to self settle and went from waking every 45-1.5 hours during the regression to sleeping 10-12 hours at night- I still can’t believe it. Training has helped our bonding, my Mental well-being and I have recommended Deb to many mum friends already! Even if it’s just for support and confidence for things like ditching a dummy or co-sleeping (at any age), Deb is awesome to help get you back on track  :-)"  

— Kate Radcliffe | June 2019

"Deb has totally changed our lives. Our son had never slept more than 3 hours at time and at 8 and a half months old I had started to really feel helpless and desperate for change. Deb’s plan was really clear. She gave me a number of different types of soothing techniques to pick from and she talked me through each one clearly so I could decide on the one that suited us best. She gave simple tweaks to our day routine and then stayed with us until midnight for our first night of soothing.


She was really supportive following - answering all my queries promptly and clearly. Malachy took 14 minutes of crying and has slept 12 hours a night ever since. It has literally changed our lives for the better. In having more sleep I have been able to start to heal from the trauma of his birth and really get back to being me which for a long time I had started to lose sight of.


Malachy is so happy now he is not overtired and I am able to be a better mum to him now. I highly recommend Deb to anyone struggling with their babies sleep. You don’t have to struggle anymore! Deb is amazing."

— Deb is amazing!  Sarah Leith

"I had the pleasure of being helped by Deb! Deb is extremely easy to communicate with, she is understanding, caring and supportive. Her feedback is always simple, easy to follow, encouraging and provides reasoning behind certain recommendations. Her help and support has made such a huge difference for us and our wee boy - we have all learned so much and can’t wait to see him continue to grow as a happy, good sleeper."

— Thank you so much Deb!  Jenna Hyland

"I would highly recommend Deb to any family struggling with sleep. Our 11 month old was waking hourly over night which was exhausting for the whole family. Deb guided us to allow our baby to sleep independently for a 9-10hr stretch within a couple of days. Deb’s instructions were easy to follow and were adapted to our more gentle parenting style. We are super grateful to be getting more sleep with Deb’s help!"  

— Jamie McKenzie

"Highly recommend!!! I worked with Deb with my 7month old son who was waking 6-7 times a night and limited day sleeps. She was very easy to work with and her instructions and advice were very easy to follow. I felt she catered for my parenting style and didn’t push me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. As a result my son is only waking 1 time in the night, with 2 day sleeps!

— Very very happy Mumma!!! Oliva Foss

Would absolutely recommend! We have been lucky to work with Deb recently to help with our 5 month old baby boy. When we started the process we were pretty much at breaking point, thanks to a number of factors our little man had been waking multiple times during the night and only catnapping during the day. 


Deb provided us with heaps of information, a daily schedule for now through to 12 months and options for us to choose from to assist with settling. We now have a baby who is able to self settle and is beginning to sleep longer during the day and have had our first full night’s sleep in months. 


Throughout the process Deb has been on hand to answer any questions we had and provide support through email and phone calls. Deb joked at first that she wasn't a miracle worker but would help us as best she could, well it certainly feels like a miracle has happened for us. 

— Thank you so much. Lauren Bell

Deb has changed our lives. There isn't enough words to describe how thankful we are to have found Deb. Within 1 and half weeks our 1 year old son went from needing to be rocked to sleep, waking multiple times in the night for 2 or more hours, needing a bottle to resettle, not eating and only having one nap during the day to eating 2 weetbix for breakfast, eating all his lunch and dinner without fail. Our son is now sleeping through the whole night and having two naps a day. We can now put him down and he settles within minutes on his own, he has no bottles for resettling. Our son is a whole lot happier, you can see the change in him and Deb is the one to thank for that. Deb was fully supportive with the training she never pushed us to choose one certain training method and stayed with us for a few hours of the first night (we chose the spaced out soothing method). I Highly recommend Deb if you are struggling and need any help with sleep she really knows her stuff!!!

— Thank you so much Deb !!! 5 out of 5.  From one happy, rested little family. Rachel Weston

"Deb recently helped us to teach our 2yr old Sam how to go to bed nicely, sleep through the night and to stay in his bed until morning. This was amazing as prior to assistance from Deb, our wee man was encroaching into my husbands and my time in the evening by being up down up down until 9pm. Then he would be up to greet us anytime from 5am. Now he is in bed by 7 and doesn’t get up til at least 6.15am. We have more time with our older children in the evening, time to chat to each other without interruption and we can sleep til a decent hour. Sam is happier, his brothers are enjoying quality time so are happier and my husband and I are happier. Win win win. Thank so very much for your assistance Deb. You guidance, advice and support has been amazing!!

— Heidi Watson

"Highly recommend! I was fortunate enough to have Deb sleep train my baby from as little as 4 weeks old. We went from a baby who cried all the time, had no structure in his sleep, no set bed time and we were lucky to get 1 hour max sleep at a time. Once we worked with Deb, we saw improvement in as little as a week. We now have a baby who loves his sleep, has a great routine and now those early days are far more enjoyable for the whole family."

— Thanks Deb!  Jess Campbell

I didn’t need to sleep train my oldest child, so when my stubborn 2nd came along I was very much in unknown territory. My baby didn’t grizzle - she’d go straight for the scream so I found any crying solutions for sleep far too stressful. As a result, I was feeding her to sleep for all naps and she was waking 3-8 times a night. With Deb’s help, I was able to help my 14 month old learn to go to sleep with minimal crying using a method I felt good about and could be consistent with. Deb took the time to get to know me as a mother, and my baby’s temperament so that she could offer me the best strategy that met our needs. I was able to use this strategy with success, even though my daughter was having continuous ear infections, and all with very little crying. The strategy is so useful, that now when my toddler is having a small regression, I go back to it and within a few nights we are back to self settling again. 


Thank you for your help Deb!

— I can not recommend Deb highly enough! Lauren Hill

 

“I contacted Deb after about 4-5 months of being up almost every hour overnight wanting to try and help my wee man consolidate his night sleep. She was amazingly quick to respond, so supportive and understanding of our individual needs. I never felt uncomfortable doing anything she suggested and it's worked so well. We now have a happy wee man who sleeps through the night and deals with sickness etc. like a champ now with the tools we have in place. Would highly recommend! ” 

 Jaime Deavoll| May 2021

100% recommend Deb! Our 15 month old daughter would only be breastfed to sleep , was waking multiple times a night and we were co sleeping, it was really starting to take it’s toll not getting any sleep and never having any time for ourselves. Since we got Deb in to help us she is now sleeping all night in her cot and going down wide awake falling asleep on her own! I use to dream of the day this would happen and finally with Deb’s help and support we did it! Thank you so much Deb. You are amazing! :) xx ” 

 Cassia Toki| April 2021

“We didn’t think we could get our 17 month old boy to sleep. But with Deb’s guidance and support we got there! Now he is much happier for the routine and extra sleep as are we!” 

 Hazel Willis| April 2021

“Deb is amazing! Our daughter's sleep was really impacting our whole family's life and day to day functioning; which is why we reached out to Deb. She was able to give us a consult immediately and instantly made us feel like we could do this! Her ongoing support was invaluable and we loved knowing that she was there when we needed it. She is incredibly personable and will be your BEST cheerleader. Not to mention that within 2 nights our baby was sleeping through the night! Deb is truly professional and the knowledge that she has is accurate and reliable. Our daughter, and we, are feeing so much better! Thanks Deb!” 

 Julia van Beek| March 2021

“Best decision to reach out and get help! I became desperate when my little one (newborn) wasn’t sleeping well. Anxiety started to set in and I did not know what I could do to help my girl.

Deb was amazing! Super friendly and approachable. She gave me a guide line in what I should be aiming for and great settling techniques. This is what I needed and it gave me some confidence going forward. It was a huge benefit having her come to the house and following up with us for a week. I would definitely recommend Deb! ” 

 Lucinda May| March 2021

“We reached out to Deb when Hendrix was 6 months old, he was a terrible sleeper. Deb’s professional knowledge helped us to get better sleep for my son and our family! Highly recommended to any families who’s baby is suffering with poor sleep.” 

 Amanda Laing| March 2021

“I contacted Deb after being referred from a friend. In an effort to ‘keep the peace’ we had spiraled down a sleepless hole with our then 8 month old. Deb gave us the info we needed but more importantly the confidence to do it! What I actually think helped us the most was understanding the food/drink relationship with sleep and how important it is to get the balance right. We have been "Deb free" for over a month now and staying in a routine has been effortless. Thanks for all your help.” 

 Micaela Bekhuis| February 2021

“I reached out to Deb as i desperately needed help with my 8 week old who was always unsettled and trying to get him to sleep for more than 10 minutes was a battle I always lost. Deb came to our home to meet us and our baby, and quickly provided us with a great range of tools to implement resulting in a happier, well rested baby, equally resulting in a happier healthier mum. Our baby has thrived off of his new routine and I have not hesitated to recommend Deb to all of my mum friends. Reaching out for help was the best thing I did for my family and I thoroughly value Deb’s knowledge and support through this journey.” 

 Acacia Kennedy| February 2021

"Deb contacted me really quickly after I had enquired about her services online. From the beginning I felt like Deb really listened to our concerns and helped us in a calm, professional way. She respected our parenting values and offered different approaches to help our little boy’s sleep. We were desperate, sleep-deprived parents who didn’t know what else to do/who else to ask for help with a one year old waking hourly. Now he is sleeping through and so are we. Thank you so much Deb! "😊

 Alice McGinty| January 2021

"We reached out to Deb after our 5.5 month old, who had been a generally good sleeper and happy baby, started waking every 1.5-2 hours overnight and had become quite unsettled during the day. We were constantly replacing his dummy and/or rocking him to get him to sleep multiple times every night. Everyone in the house was tired, grumpy and absolutely over it.  After 6 weeks of this we had had enough and decided to get some help. Deb gave us some suggestions to improve his sleep habits and altered our sleep/feeding schedule. After two (very hard) weeks our baby can now be put down to sleep and goes to sleep on his own within 5 minutes. He is sleeping so so much better at night, and we have our happy baby back! Deb was amazing throughout the two weeks - so supportive and very responsive when we had questions or problems. It was a tough two weeks BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT! Thanks so much Deb x

 Sarah Mould| December 2020

"I reached out to Deb after months of poor sleep and consistently telling myself that it was just a developmental stage. I can't believe how quickly my 9-month-old went from needing to be cuddled to sleep in my bed, waking 5-6 times a night to going down in his cot, self-settling within minutes and sleeping through most nights.

It has been an absolute game-changer for our family, I have a happy, spritely little boy, and I'm able to get enough rest to manage my busy lifestyle (solo parent and business owner). It has also been incredibly helpful having one plan that my village, including grandparents and daycare, can stick to.

It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that poor sleeping is the norm, the information available online can be conflicting and overwhelming. I can't recommend Debs guidance enough, it is customised to the individual, the support is amazing, and it works!"

 Ciara Corrigan| November 2020

"We used Deb recently to help with our daughter’s transition to a big bed. Devon was generally a good sleeper in her cot but one day just started fighting bed time and jumping out of the cot in her sleep sack. So we were forced to put her in a big bed.

The fighting at bedtime continued and eventually she started sleeping in our bed with us as we were both too tired to fight it any longer. We had sleep trained Devon before but we wanted a different approach as she was older. We were worried she would end up not liking bedtime or her room if we did it wrong or forced something on her she wasn’t ready for

We contacted Deb and with in a few days we had massive improvements! Devon seemed happier as well since we were all getting good sleep. Deb was easy to speak with and gave us the little bit of confidence and reassurance we needed to find a plan and stick to it.

I would highly recommend using Deb!

 Lori Smith| November 2020

"I'd like to say a humongous thank you to Deb. I had a 10 month old daughter who woke every 1.5 hours overnight and had to have motion or boob to nap. I was living on MINUTES of sleep a night, not even an hour. I was not coping. It got to the point that I was having panic attacks and had to take medication for my anxiety.

Fast forward a month and I now have a sweet little girl who knows when nap/bed time is and crawls into her bedroom and chooses her own story, a little babe who sleeps 13 hours a night straight and I’m feeling like an actual human being. Deb didn’t just help Oak, she pretty much saved my life."

 Chloe| September 2020

"Debs helped our wee man when he was 4.5 months old, sleeping poorly, in the process of coming off a feeding tube and needing more sleep and energy to remain tube free. It wasn't the easiest time, however, with Debs support and comprehensive plan and some time we got there. He maintained being feeding tube free because he was well rested, stopped cat napping and learned to self settle. We reached out to Debs again at 9 months for support with a new day plan and advice on solids before milk which again, hasn't been all smooth sailing but with Debs planning has been a lot easier and less guess work on our part. Anyone who is having trouble with feeding and sleeping, I would recommend you chat with Deb. Thanks Deb ❤️"

 Emma Payne| June 2020

"We had such a positive experience with Deb. She is very supportive and a great communicator and knows just how to keep everyone involved. Our now 19 month old sleeps through the whole night and naps happily during the day- this is something we never thought would happen. We are expecting another baby in the coming days so the sleep we have been getting these past few weeks has really helped us. I wish we got Deb involved sooner. Best thing we ever did! Would highly recommend her services. 💯"

 Sophie Hart| June 2020

"The comprehensive routine and plan that was written up for my two year old and my partner has made such a big difference. We went from being awake for 2 or more hours a night to full 11 hours of sleep in a matter of 4 days. Deb is amazing. Very supportive. Worth every penny!"

 Brooke Patrick| June 2020

"Deb is knowledgeable and offers constant support which has helped my 9 month old stop waking at 4am every morning and hardly sleeping at all in the day. Before we invested in her help he was an overtired and grumpy baby who was never content. Now I am loving spending time with my well rested little boy. I only wished I had got her help sooner! Thank you Deb"

 Stacey Lindsay| June 2020

"The easiest recommendation I'll ever make. Deb is phenomenal and totally saved our family. No more nasogastric tube feeding, lots of sleep and everyone is happy. Forever grateful 🙏"

 Megan Langford| May 2020

"Our 9 month old daughter was waking 2 to 3 times at night, only falling asleep if she was being rocked or breastfed & using a dummy. We can now put her down for naps during the day & for the night with almost no fight, with no dummy & no night feeds. It's great knowing she's actually getting the right amount of sleep that she needs & so do we! Deb helped us get into a great routine & was in daily contact helping us through everything which I found really reassuring. Thanks so much Deb!"

 Tracy Marsh | May 2020

"I was hesitant about doing any form of sleep training but after 8 months of sleepless nights we knew we had to do something. I really wanted to have someone come into our house and observe our son so they could understand him but due to Covid this wasn't possible. After talking to Deb she explained how a video consult would work and it was great, it was like she was right there beside us, I needn't have worried at all. Her set up is very professional and it was great having someone there to support you and answer all your queries. We have gone from breastfeeding or rocking him to sleep for every nap, using a dummy, co sleeping, feeding through the night and anything we could to get him to sleep - but he would still wake every 40 mins. After the first night he can now link his sleeps, he is in his own room and cot, no longer breastfed to sleep, no dummy and within 1 week I have dropped all night feeds. I couldn't recommend Deb enough!"

 Lee Smith | May 2020

"Deb has transformed our family. We were struggling to get our three preschoolers all in bed before 8.30pm. Now they are in bed by 7pm every night.

She worked particularly with our 9 month old who has gone from co-sleeping & being up 6 - 8 times a night, and now has one feed & we have to wake her for the day at 7am. She now calmly puts herself to sleep for two solid naps a day, when we used to be lucky to get more than 40 minutes sleep from her.

I was so hesitant about the process but Deb was up front, kind & understanding. She is a skilled health professional who gives lots of other really useful advice too.

We have used two other sleep consultant services before & their service just doesn't compare to Deb's expertise & ability to build relationships.

We cannot thank you enough for the way you have supported our family. You told us we would end up with a baby who loves sleep, and we have."

 Charlotte Cummings | April 2020

"I titled my email to Deb - 16 week old hates sleep. I was in such a bad place, my second child has reflux and we did what we needed to do to survive, only by that point we were no longer surviving and I was drowning under the weight of it all.
My email to Deb today would be 19 week old LOVES sleep.
I was nervous about hiring a sleep consultant, what if it didn't work for my baby, what if I couldn't follow it all through. Then she arrived and walked me through the steps to getting my boy to sleep. It was a bit of work, a couple of hiccups, but all in all an absolutely amazing result - Charlie is knocking out his first ever 2.5 hour lunchtime nap! (And I will have to wake him!!!)
If you are in doubt over whether or not to hire Deb - DO IT. You will not be disappointed. The 2 weeks support was phenomenal, she was always quick to get back in touch and always ready to share pertinent information. If I had any friends having a baby, I would honest to goodness get them a voucher for Deb's services. Thank you so much Deb, you've changed my household and we are all thriving now. (And he's happily woken up!) x"

 Nicole Hughes | January 2020

"We asked Deb to help us set a routine for our almost 3 year old and help him to go to sleep independently. We asked her for help over the Christmas period and also 2 weeks before our baby was due and she was more than willing to jump in and help us out despite us leaving it a bit late. We cannot believe the progress he made in such a short amount of time. He was going to sleep on his own within 1 week, eating a lot better and was less cranky during the day which meant a huge reduction in tantrums. Family life is now a lot calmer and the routine Deb set is very easy to follow even with a newborn in the house."

 Rebecca Bennett | January 2020

"5 stars all the way! We could not recommend Deb highly enough. Her approach was extremely tailored to our needs and our sons personality. She was friendly, helpful, encouraging and very thorough. She helped us go from having a 13 month old who was rocked to sleep and co sleeping every night, not having good day naps to a son who has slept through every night, self settles and has a long lunch nap. We wish we had seen her sooner, a life changer truly."

— Cat Norton | January 2020

"Deb was absolutely amazing. So friendly and supportive. My 7 month old son stopped feeding to sleep, started sleeping all night, linking sleep cycles. I now have my evenings back to relax. Wish I had called her earlier!!! Would highly recommend."

— Nicola Lee | December 2019

"Deb is absolutely amazing!! Our 9 month old boy went from waking hourly, needing to be fed back to sleep every time to self settling and sleeping through the night with Deb's help!!
We highly recommend Deb 🙂 She definitely went the extra mile with us."

— Melissa Gower | September 2019

"Would highly recommend Debs. Quinn is such a happy baby now . In just 2 weeks she is self settling , no dummy, waking only for feeding 1-2 times a night. Our family is much more settled now we have a routine that works. I found the follow up exceeded my expectations and was amazing."

— Jeanette White | September 2019

" I’m telling everyone I know about Deb! At three months old Finn was waking every 1.5-2 hours overnight from birth. He only ever slept on me during the day, at random times and only for 40 minutes at a time. I was mentally and physically exhausted.

In less than two weeks, Finn started sleeping and settling on his own in his bassinet during the day, and is now waking once at night to feed. No more pushing a pram for miles, pacing around the lounge for hours or feeding to sleep! We’re a whole new family and cannot be more grateful xxx."

Her help and support has made such a huge difference for us and our wee boy - we have all learned so much and can’t wait to see him continue to grow as a happy, good sleeper."

— Thank you so much Deb!  Jenna Hyland

"I would highly recommend Deb to any family struggling with sleep. Our 11 month old was waking hourly over night which was exhausting for the whole family. Deb guided us to allow our baby to sleep independently for a 9-10hr stretch within a couple of days. Deb’s instructions were easy to follow and were adapted to our more gentle parenting style. We are super grateful to be getting more sleep with Deb’s help!"

"Highly recommend!!! I worked with Deb with my 7month old son who was waking 6-7 times a night and limited day sleeps. She was very easy to work with and her instructions and advice were very easy to follow. I felt she catered for my parenting style and didn’t push me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. As a result my son is only waking 1 time in the night, with 2 day sleeps!

— Very very happy Mumma!!! Oliva Foss

Would absolutely recommend! We have been lucky to work with Deb recently to help with our 5 month old baby boy. When we started the process we were pretty much at breaking point, thanks to a number of factors our little man had been waking multiple times during the night and only catnapping during the day. 


Deb provided us with heaps of information, a daily schedule for now through to 12 months and options for us to choose from to assist with settling. We now have a baby who is able to self settle and is beginning to sleep longer during the day and have had our first full night’s sleep in months. 


Throughout the process Deb has been on hand to answer any questions we had and provide support through email and phone calls. Deb joked at first that she wasn't a miracle worker but would help us as best she could, well it certainly feels like a miracle has happened for us.

Deb has changed our lives. There isn't enough words to describe how thankful we are to have found Deb. Within 1 and half weeks our 1 year old son went from needing to be rocked to sleep, waking multiple times in the night for 2 or more hours, needing a bottle to resettle, not eating and only having one nap during the day to eating 2 weetbix for breakfast, eating all his lunch and dinner without fail. Our son is now sleeping through the whole night and having two naps a day. We can now put him down and he settles within minutes on his own, he has no bottles for resettling. Our son is a whole lot happier, you can see the change in him and Deb is the one to thank for that. Deb was fully supportive with the training she never pushed us to choose one certain training method and stayed with us for a few hours of the first night (we chose the spaced out soothing method). I Highly recommend Deb if you are struggling and need any help with sleep she really knows her stuff!!!

"Deb recently helped us to teach our 2yr old Sam how to go to bed nicely, sleep through the night and to stay in his bed until morning. This was amazing as prior to assistance from Deb, our wee man was encroaching into my husbands and my time in the evening by being up down up down until 9pm. Then he would be up to greet us anytime from 5am. Now he is in bed by 7 and doesn’t get up til at least 6.15am. We have more time with our older children in the evening, time to chat to each other without interruption and we can sleep til a decent hour. Sam is happier, his brothers are enjoying quality time so are happier and my husband and I are happier. Win win win. Thank so very much for your assistance Deb. You guidance, advice and support has been amazing!!

"Highly recommend! I was fortunate enough to have Deb sleep train my baby from as little as 4 weeks old. We went from a baby who cried all the time, had no structure in his sleep, no set bed time and we were lucky to get 1 hour max sleep at a time. Once we worked with Deb, we saw improvement in as little as a week. We now have a baby who loves his sleep, has a great routine and now those early days are far more enjoyable for the whole family."

— Thanks Deb!  Jess Campbell

I didn’t need to sleep train my oldest child, so when my stubborn 2nd came along I was very much in unknown territory. My baby didn’t grizzle - she’d go straight for the scream so I found any crying solutions for sleep far too stressful. As a result, I was feeding her to sleep for all naps and she was waking 3-8 times a night. With Deb’s help, I was able to help my 14 month old learn to go to sleep with minimal crying using a method I felt good about and could be consistent with. Deb took the time to get to know me as a mother, and my baby’s temperament so that she could offer me the best strategy that met our needs. I was able to use this strategy with success, even though my daughter was having continuous ear infections, and all with very little crying. The strategy is so useful, that now when my toddler is having a small regression, I go back to it and within a few nights we are back to self settling again. 


Thank you for your help Deb!
