About Me

30+ yrs experience (Maternity/Night Nurse, Sleep/Bottle Refusal Consultantl). In-home or virtual consultations for a few hours up to 7 days.
I’m trained by highly renowned experts in their respective fields. My approach is holistic, gentle and intuitive. My advice is based on evidence-based scientific information. Mindful of you and your little one's emotional well-being and respectful of your infant's unique personality, I offer you options so that you can make informed choices. I offer emotional support and a big boost of confidence too.

TESTIMONIALS:
Sarah, mum of a 4 month old "Suzy has performed an absolute miracle! After 3 months of trying to get our little boy to bottle feed, I finally admitted defeat. Suzy was easy to communicate with, calm, sensitive to our concerns and also kind to our son. In under 24 hours I came back to my husband proudly bottle-feeding our son. I highly recommend Suzy's feeding service, it's perfect!"

Jennie, mum of a 2 month old "With Suzy's help, support and encouragement, my daughter no longer demands to sleep on my chest all night. She now loves her cot"

Connie, mum of a 6 month old “Suzy didn’t force me to do anything that went against my ideas, rather she adjusted the sleep plan to suit us as a family and it worked.”

Tom, father of a 10 month old "Suzy tells the truth and her advice all made perfect sense. My baby sleeps and we have got our life back!".

Mother of a 3 year old "Suzy came recommended by my doctor and inspired trust right from the start.”

Gemma, mum of a 7 month old "We are already enjoying the fruits of your visit two days ago. Today Toby is eating and sleeping so much better than before. He tried raspberry, peach and sourdough bread, and loved them all! We are also now enjoying much smoother bedtimes and no night wakings."

Francesca, mother of a 1 year old "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 had imagined..."

My Experience

Mother of 3 year old "Suzy is warm, non-judgemental and professional... I can't recommend her highly enough as a true child sleep expert."

Father of 5 month old “In just under 24 hours our baby was happily bottle feeding. I highly recommend Suzy’s service!”

Mother of a 6 month old "Suzy Rocks! Her enthusiasm was contagious from the start and she embraced our style of parenting, included our toddler in everything and trained our nanny, all in great humour. Billys sleep has improved and we have a flexible but solid plan as we move forward"

Mother of 14 month old
"Since your short visit everything has improved, including my son’s eating habits. You are a very special magic person!"

Mother of 6 month old and a toddler struggling to coordinate both infant's daily patterns:
".....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....! "

Just wanted to take the opportunity again to thank you SO MUCH for your help! We're still reeling from the success and so pleased our search brought us to your door! Baby's new sleep habit is life changing behaviour and we will always be grateful. Within 36 hours Suzy had our 8M falling to sleep in his own cot, and sleeping solidly for 12 hours, something that had never, EVER happened before. And it's stuck! We couldn't have done it without you.

i am so pleased that with advice and support you have got to the point where you are all sleeping better. Congratulations! Keep up the good work and enjoy lots more sleep filled nights and fun filled days.

Suzy was my third - and final! - sleep consultant! By the time Suzy came, my six month old was an ace daytime napper, but turned into a little terror when it came to bedtime. I didn't have a way of getting him to sleep in the evening that didn't involve tears and more tears. I knew I wasn't being consistent (bad!) but I also felt that I'd given all the various techniques I'd read about a pretty decent go and didn't know what else to try. I'd lost all confidence in my parenting ability and was worried that I was traumatising my baby with his evening crying. Suzy completely came to the rescue, reassuring me that my baby was fine (albeit pretty headstrong!) and giving me the confidence and encouragement to see my chosen technique through. I trusted her completely. Five days after Suzy came, he was asleep at bedtime within 10 minutes. She made the baby happy. She made me happy. The dogs loved her. Everyone loved her!

Dear RosieL,
The feeling is mutual and that includes your dogs! I loved the challenge of your gorgeous little boys sleep resisting antics and I am so deeply proud of you for following right through to a great result. Congratulations and a big little hug to your very stunning baby boy (and the dogs too!).

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.

Dear CDS,

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!
