Erin and Willow, 9 months

erin and willow

Emma was amazing. She has a gentle approach to getting your little one to sleep. We are no longer feeding to sleep and my little girl isn't having naps on me.

She sleeps better at night time and is now happier during the day.
I would highly recommend Emma is anyone :-)

Thank you so much Emma

Gabi and Amelia, 5 months

Gabi and Amelia

When my daughter was 5 months old I reached out for Emma’s help. Amelia's day naps were unpredictable and I could not plan my day. I would spend more time trying to get her to sleep than actually her sleeping.
Emma’s technique suited our parenting style which was so important to me. She has a real gentle approach.
In a few days we were able to establish a sleep routine for my daughter. Amelia was happier and I was able to spend more quality time with my family. Most importantly she learned how to …

Ollie and Tegan Stewart - From no overnight sleep to sleeping through the night!

Ollie

At one year old, an infant’s sleep issues must surely be improving, right? Wrong. Or at least not for Ollie’s poor exhausted Mum. At around 8 months of age, her son started waking every 15 mins throughout the night. (yep, you read that right). Can you imagine what it was like for her to get through the days on so little sleep? Let’s take a closer look at Ollie’s sleep “regression”. Ollie’s Sleep Pattern Baby Ollie wasn’t ever a great sleeper, but his mum, Tegan, felt like it wasn’t “too bad.” Sh…

Client Success story: Diana and Emilija 4 months

Diana and Emilija

A baby should be sleeping well after a few months, right? Wrong. Or at least not in the case of little Emilija and her tired Mum. Emilija's twin sister had got the memo about sleep, but Emilija hadn’t! Can you imagine what it was like as a first-time mum to twins? Diana was doing her very best, but Emilija’s sleep was regressing and she needed help. Emilija’s Sleep Pattern Emilija had been doing all the usual things up until 6 weeks. She slept and fed often, and life was as busy as you’d expect …

The 4 Big Common Sleep Problems: What to Do About Them

4 common sleep problems

Oh sleep, sleep ,sleep….. If only we had the magic wand to wave over our babies and toddlers to get them to sleep like little angels! But these babies and toddlers of ours are all so different. Some arrive on this planet and make sleep look easy. It’s no problem and their chilled little temperaments help them to easily slide into dreamland. Others, well……. hard! Of course, different temperaments, means different ease of sleep for some babies, and I’ve definitely worked with hundreds who fight sl…

Nap Transitions: Dropping from three naps to two

Nap transitions

Nap transitions can be confusing and tricky times. Firstly, all you generally notice is that something strange is going on with your baby’s daytime sleep. They are fighting sleep when they wouldn’t usually and can appear very tired at other parts of the day.

What’s going on? Often this is a sign that your baby is in a nap transition. I want to talk about the transition when your baby drops from three naps a day to two.

This transition generally happens anywhere between 6 – 8 months. There is n…

Mandy and Mia, 14 months

We have been working with Emma over the last 2 weeks and I can’t believe what a difference just 2 weeks has made! We were exhausted and I wasn’t sure how we were going to keep going due to the lack of sleep we were getting. It seemed to be taking Mia our 14 month old longer and longer to get to sleep and she was waking multiple times a night and requiring us to hold her every time she woke to go back to sleep. Emma was patient and understanding. She supported us the whole way through the process…

On feeding: Why I think 'Fed is Best'.

fed is best image

There are so many things to think about when you’re pregnant. Our minds are filled with excited anticipation, the pregnancy journey itself, our hopes and dreams for our little one and our family. Thoughts about the impending labour, and how to get this baby out, consume us as well, as we are simultaneously surrounded by other people’s stories and input. As we try to navigate all of this, and work out what is best for baby, mother, the family, there is something else we are often slowly, subconsc…

Lisa, Reilly and Jake I yr and 3 yrs

Untitled design

I have 3 boys, a 5 yr old, a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old. We were having problems with both the 3yr old and 1 yr old. The 3yr old took at least 3hours to get to sleep, and the one yr old was waking between 3-5 times in the night. To say I was wrecked was an understatement. I was cranky, tired and struggling. Feeling like no amount of coffee could cure this problem I reached out to Emma. What an incredible woman. She made me feel so empowered to take charge of my out of control situation. Now my 3yr …
