"Suzy has performed an absolute miracle! After 3 months of trying to get our breastfeeding little boy to bottle feed, I finally admitted defeat. Suzy was easy to communicate with, calm, sensitive to our concerns also kind and gentle with our son. In just under 24 hours I came back to see my husband proudly bottle feeding our son. I highly recommend Suzy's feeding service, it's perfect!"
"Suzy tells the truth and it all made sense. My baby sleeps and we have got our life back!".
"Suzy came recommended by my doctor and inspired trust right from the start.”
“Suzy didn’t try to force me to do anything that went against my ideas, rather she adjusted her advice to suit us as a family.”

"With Suzy's help, support and encouragement, I am able to map out mine and my baby's future! My daughter no longer demands to sleep on my chest..."
"I can't believe it! We have gone from hourly night feedings/wakings to blissful sleep! He is a completely different little boy, much happier! .....It was so much easier than I thought it would be..."
“With Coronavirus and lockdown we decided to make the most of this time to book Suzy’s online bottle refusal service. Suzy was available both day and night, coaching and guiding us via an unlimited number of video calls and texts. In just under 24 hours we have a baby who was happily bottle Feeding. I highly recommend Suzy’s service!”
"Suzy's enthusiasm was contagious from the start and we immediately felt the 'calm' as soon as she arrived. Suzy embraced our style of parenting, included our toddler in everything and trained our nanny, all in great humour. Billie is in a much better place now and we have a flexible but solid plan as we move forward. Suzy, you ROCK!"
"We had been struggling to get our breastfed 6 month old to take a bottle. We tried everything without success. Suzy has a very gentle and nurturing approach and now we have a very happy bottle-fed baby and an even happier mum."
"Suzy is warm, non-judgemental and professional... I can't recommend her highly enough as a child sleep expert."
"...I had been looking online for the answer to our sleep struggle and got confused. Suzy gave me the immediate recipe for success. Keep saving mothers all over the world Suzy, you are amazing!'

Mrs S (first and second babies who had various sleep and dietary concerns)

Mrs M (mother of a 6 month old and a toddler struggling to coordinate her children's daily patterns, sibling jealousy issues):
".....Our new 'Suzy Routine" means the old, high-stress points at the end of the day when I was trying to juggle two cross little girls no longer exists. Suzy has my highly esteemed regard....! "

We purchased blissful sleep and worked with Suzy across three days with two-weeks text support. Words will not adequately convey our feelings about Suzy and the changes that she guided and supported in developing a sleep routine in our baby: but life-changing covers it. We *highly, highly* recommend this package and Suzy.
Response by Suzy_BabyExpert on 24/11/2019:
I am thrilled that you are now sleeping well and very grateful for your kind words.
I wish you all the heartfelt best in the future and lots and lots more blissful sleep....
Suzy was fantastic with our 9 month old who had refused a bottle for 6 months, and outwitted previous consultants on the matter. Our baby is now very happily taking the bottle, and as a bonus her sleeping has improved. Suzy’s intuitive, baby led approach made me feel completely comfortable and we are thrilled with the results. I would wholeheartedly and very enthusiastically recommend Suzy to anyone having feeding or sleeping trouble.
We hired Suzy to persuade our extremely willful 7 month old to take a bottle, after months and months of trying ourselves without success. Suzy's approach was calm, knowledgeable, extremely skilful and well, quite astonishing. She is the closest to a true baby whisperer I've ever come across, and my husband learned so much from the time they spent together with our baby (I was away from the house to enable operation bottle to succeed!). Suzy also took great care to ensure I was ok, both mentally and physically, with stopping breastfeeding and being away from our baby. She went above and beyond I felt. Her support following the successful bottle training was also brilliant and generous. I never really thought our baby would accept a bottle, but it took just 2 days and now he is exclusively drinking milk from a bottle, and happily so. Don't hesitate to hire Suzy!
Suzy came to the rescue when we were under real time pressure. I was due to start back at work part time and our predominantly breastfed four month old had recently stopped taking expressed milk by bottle, refusing with crying fits and leaving us worried she'd go hungry when I wasn't there. Our efforts employing different teats, bottles, locations and family members only seemed to make her more and more angry.
Our little girl responded well immediately to Suzy's manner - she is clearly brilliant with babies. Suzy guided my daughter and husband gently through a process to get her taking milk from the bottle again and in increasing volumes until she was taking full feeds.
We were impressed by Suzy's ability to help both an infant and stressed out parents while maintaining calm and understanding. She even kept me updated on what was my first day back at work with WhatsApp messages, pictures and videos to reassure me that my daughter was happy and in good hands. Her aftercare via WhatsApp kept us on track through the week that followed, answering questions and cheering us on.
We'd recommend Suzy's bottle refusal assistance highly and would sign up for her other services with confidence if we need them in future.
At six months old our son was waking almost hourly throughout the night, wouldn't nap for longer than 20 minutes during the day and was snacking on breast milk throughout the day and night. We had tried to set in place a good routine but we were not confident in what we were doing. With so much advice, methods, friends, the internet etc. out there we were confused, doubting what we were doing and how we were doing it. The more tired we became the harder it got. Suzy came along and gave us confidence to pursue our chosen method, helping us to stick at it and keep consistent, and within the month we had a happy baby who was confidently eating solids with a clear feeding and sleeping routine, napping three times a day and sleeping 11 hours a night. We were able to wean him off the night feeds and finally started to get regular good night sleeps! The more sleep we got the more confident we became, the happier we were and the more we could give our gorgeous son. Suzy helped us clarify what was right for us as a family, in terms of the support she could offer us the methods we could use and the routine we wanted to put in place, and we highly recommend her….and sleep!!!
Thank you Suzy :-) x
