Mimi, mum to Zayd aged 7 months
I found Lavender Blue Sleep Consulting on Instagram and got lucky - our darling son Zayd was waking 8+ times a night and could only be settled by us rocking him back to sleep, only for him to wake up again as soon as we placed him in his cot. His naps were touch and go and we were exhausted and at our wits end. Daisy far, far exceeded our expectations for sleep training and her methods were so gentle and in keeping with our parenting values that we felt reassured from the start. It only took a couple of weeks before Zayd was sleeping from 07:30-07:00 most nights with minimal to no wake ups. We are so confident thanks to Daisy that (without revealing her methods!) if Zayd does happen to wake up in the night or refuse to nap in the day, we have the tools to ensure he puts himself gently back to sleep. This was unimaginable for us 4 weeks ago. Thank you Daisy/Lavender Blue Sleep Consulting - we are finally able to sleep uninterrupted. Your service is priceless and we will be recommending you to everyone we know!
Gemma, mum to Sophia aged 4.5 years
For over 2 years we have put up with sleepless nights from our daughter Sophia. A combination of waking during the night and wanting to get in our bed in the early hours of the morning has left us all sleep deprived.
Lavender Blue Sleep Consulting has changed all that. After a very detailed consultation Daisy gave us a plan that was easy to implement and sympathetic to Sophia's and our family' needs.
But what made the process both achievable and enjoyable was Daisy's regular contact during the process. Sophia loved the special video messages of encouragement and recognition of her success that Daisy sent.
I would highly recommend anyone wanting to improve their bed time routine to get in touch with Daisy.
Sophia will now sleep all night in her own bed and it has made a world of difference to the whole family. Thank you Daisy, you have been amazing.
Roxy, mum to Spencer aged 4 and Harrison aged 2
Daisy has made a world of difference to us all. Before we started working with her our two boys (4 years old and 2.5 years old) were both breastfed to sleep at the start and throughout the night and would always end up in our bed. And my husband would go and sleep in one of their beds. The boys had always bedshared with us and we never had a problem with them doing so, we loved all the extra snuggles. But we decided that we all needed to start sleeping better and not feel so tired during the day.
I had a quick chat with Daisy and immediately knew she could help us. She's so lovely, helpful, caring and passionate about what she does. It was so important to us that the transition was kind to the boys and that they weren't at all distressed. Daisy completely understood and I had no hesitation signing up with her there and then.
And the results were so fast (it still blows our minds!). Our 2.5yo is VERY strong willed and we really thought it was going to be a struggle with him. The boys share a room too so there was always the worry that one would wake up the other one. But both boys took to it all so incredibly well. One week after we started the 2.5yo took only 1 minute to fall asleep and then slept through. After 2 weeks he was consistently sleeping through. Our 4yo started sleeping through most nights from within the first week.
Our 4yo really enjoyed having chats with Daisy. She explained things to him, gave him an important job in it all, encouraged him and congratulated him when he slept through.
We'd previously used Google to look for advice on getting the boys to sleep better and we also bought a GroClock. Nothing worked. Having Daisy give us clear bespoke guidance and advice was really empowering and invaluable. It gave us so much confidence and meant that we were both on the same page. There wasn't any doubt or second guessing. We had the plan and we stuck to it. With Daisy's ongoing support and regular calls we were able to ask questions as we went through the different stages.
It's been a wonderful experience and I absolutely cannot recommend Daisy enough.
She's a sleep miracle worker!
Annabel, mum to Alfie aged 6 months
I contacted Daisy in desperation, my partner was sceptical, I was apprehensive - how on earth was anything Daisy suggested going to help us, I'd already tried so many different "sleep remedies". I was so worried that I would need to ignore Alfie’s needs and not be able to comfort him if we worked with a sleep consultant but we was desperate for help and something had to be done.
Working with Daisy has absolutely changed our lives, I was suffering with postnatal depression not leaving the house for days on end, avoiding contact with family and friends, not cooking and snacking on sugary food to keep me going. Alfie went from being a happy cheeky baby to never smiling and crying at everything, lack of sleep was affecting his feeding as he was associating feeding with sleep. Our relationship was suffering as we spent no time together and had no time to talk.
Alfie has gone from 3 30-40 minutes contact or motion naps to having 3 1-2 hour naps in his cot. Days were bad but I dreaded bedtime - he would happily go down for an hour at 7pm but he would wake and I would spend the rest of the evening upstairs trying to resettle him. Around 10pm he would resettle and then wake every 45-60 mins unless I sat up with him in my arms when he would happily sleep for hours. The only way to get him to sleep was by feeding him so there was no hope of settling for his Dad he would cry until I took over whenever he tried. Now sleeps through 11-12 hours and if he does wake he settles again quickly no matter who does bedtime/nap time.
Daisy listened to my concerns and devised a plan which allowed us to work at a pace that was right for us all as a family. Feeds were worked into our plan which Alfie naturally dropped himself as we progressed. I have never had to worry that he is hungry and have always been able to offer comfort. Alfie has always been reassured and resettled quickly even with a few bumps in the road (teething and outgrowing the next to me overnight) but regular telephone calls with Daisy and being able to message with any questions means I felt supported and in control throughout the whole process.
We now all get up in the morning refreshed, ready for the day and able to enjoy our time together rather than a constant battle of feeding and sleeping. Thank you so much Daisy/Lavender Blue Sleep Consulting you are absolutely amazing!
