Gaby H from London

I can honestly say that the phone call with Sleep Nannies was like having a very heavy load lifted off my shoulders. Her words that ‘you are not the only parents out there with this problem’ may sound like common sense, but when you’re suffering from nightly torture it is actually very comforting to know that you’re not the only person going through it! In addition, she had very useful advice on both diet and, more particularly in our case, about getting a bit tougher with our lovely but manipulative and non-sleeping 22 month old.

We have, indeed, got tougher and – a miracle this – it’s working. L isn’t exactly going through the night yet, but she is going back to sleep within 10 minutes of waking up, whereas before it was not uncommon for us to be up with her for 3 and a half hours at a stretch. I cannot thank Mel enough for her time and expertise. Be assured, if we ever have any more children and they too prove difficult, we will not be leaving it nearly so long before drafting in our sleep nanny’s expertise.

Best wishes, Gaby
