At 9 months, our baby went from waking up multiple times a night, to sleeping all night, as well as being smiley and happy when we put him to bed – he loves bedtime now! Alex and I haven’t stopped saying that getting Heidi was the best thing we’ve ever done.

Great workshop…we learned a lot…the system really has been working for us so far!
The best decision we made was getting in contact with Heidi. Our 6 month old daughter had a good routine but was not sleeping well during the day and poor at self-settling. Heidi helped us refine her bedtime and gave us good advice and tips. Within one day she was sleeping through the night and day time sleep was improving as well.
We now have 2 happy boys who sleep for 12 hours at night and are often smiling before and after a nap. It’s made such a difference to all of us and Heidi is so lovely to talk to. If you need help – call her – it’s a no brainer!
We cannot recommend Heidi highly enough. She is very kind, understanding and reassuring. She answered all of our questions and the contact via WhatsApp after our initial meeting was hugely helpful.
