Sarah came to us to help with our 6month olds sleep. He was waking twice a night for milk and multiple other times for a dummy or cuddles and we were exhausted!
Sarah was kind, reassuring and very experienced. She came to us for 6nights over the course of 3 weeks. She used a gentle structured approach, giving us guidance and lots of reassurance that our boy would get there…and he did! He now happily sleeps 11+hours overnight and we have our sanity back! Thank you!
As soon as we knew baby number 2 was well on the way, we got back in touch with Sarah, who supported us with our first son. Sarah helped us with nights 3 times a week - helped us establish good sleeping and eating routines, reminded us ‘how babies work’ and re-instilled confidence in our parenting (a few toddler tips too). Baby 1 slept through 10-7am at 11 weeks and baby 2 at 10 weeks. It’s not easy but it’s certainly easier with Sarah’s help! I would highly recommend it.
We engaged Sarah to help 3 nights a week with our daughter from around 4 weeks old until 3 months.
We would highly recommend Sarah - she is eminently capable, experienced and exudes quiet confidence which is so reassuring when entrusting your very young baby to someone! Our daughter has responded very well to Sarah and is very settled with her. She has put us at ease, given us the confidence that our daughter is in very safe hands overnight and enabled us to have some much needed sleep (essential with a toddler as well!)
We could not recommend Sarah highly enough – I only wish we had contacted her sooner! She is a lovely, kind, confident, calm night nanny and an expert in sleep training.
Our 9-week-old second baby was still waking every 2-3 hours each night and I desperately needed a full night’s sleep to be a good parent for both my children during the day. From the moment Sarah arrived we were confident our baby boy was in excellent hands and he was immediately settled by her. The first night Sarah stayed with us we didn’t hear him cry once and he slept until 6am. I exclusively breastfeed so left Sarah with a bottle of expressed breastmilk. We were very impressed with Sarah - she was also an absolute pleasure to have around.
Sarah helped us with our 3rd baby from 2-13 weeks and from start to finish it was such a positive experience. I had small amounts of last minute help with my first two children but never booked any help in advance for a defined period - we are so glad we did. Our baby girl was not the easiest baby and I had concerns over various allergies but Sarah was patient and sympathetic throughout and I was always so happy to see her on the nights that she came. I was exclusively breast feeding which Sarah was very supportive of, at first bringing her in for feeds through the night and then we moved on to expressed breast milk once my supply was established. Sarah and I worked together to establish a good day routine to help work towards our baby sleeping through the night before Sarah left us. Despite our baby girl being rather stubborn, Sarah left us with a baby sleeping from 7-7 at 13 weeks - with barely a cry required (and the dummy also got rid of). Sarah’s calm and consistent method is just brilliant and she is also a real pleasure to have around. Our baby girl is now 4.5 months and she has slept through the night since that time and is a very happy baby during the day. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sarah.
