Success Stories: how these parents overcame their little ones' sleep challenges
"I cannot believe I'm writing this, but Willow is ASLEEP in bed while I am able to enjoy a few hours of me time after 10 months of 0 sleep! Willow literally never slept, even from birth. She couldn't self soothe either. She regularly woke 7-8 times throughout the night, even 30 mins apart from each wake, which would leave both of us exhausted. Alexandra gave us a sleep plan, which at first I was unsure doing, but she reassured me with a method which was calm and perfect for us. It took us a few days to get the hang of it, but each day became easier and Willow was accepting the napping. I actually now look forward to evenings rather than resenting it. Alexandra, I wish I had found you sooner! For anyone that needs sleep, a routine and to get back to feeling like 'them' again, then I would recommend Alexandra in a heartbeat. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us xxx"

"We can’t thank ‘Sleep by Alexandra’ enough. Alexandra and her practical tips have transformed our sleep. We have three boys, a four year old and identical two year old boys. The younger twin used to wake constantly through the night and we ended up in a pattern of him sleeping in bed with us from 3am each night, just so that we could get some sleep and he didn’t wake his brothers up. After contacting Alexandra- her response was amazingly quick- she came up with an easy to follow yet detailed plan, which took into account all of our needs. She supported us in putting it into place and gave advice when we were struggling to make the plan work for us. She is amazing. Our little man now makes it to 6am most mornings and we don’t have him in bed with us through the night. We can’t recommend ‘Sleep by Alexandra’ enough!"
- Zoe, Essex.
"I first started talking to Alex about my child’s undesirable sleep patterns when I was in a really bad place. I was absolutely shattered, suffering with ptsd from the birth, subsequent PND and desperately trying to be the best mum that I could to my toddler and new born.
"Alex listened and let me talk about everything that had happened and how I couldn’t cope with my baby waking every hour to breast feed any more. Alex was so calm and patient and understood every bit of what I was saying. She told me that she had similar issues with her son and that was why she had trained to be a sleep consultant. I knew that I had found the right person when she told me she had specialised in PND. She didn’t promise me miracles but she offered support and love in a way that was so desperately needed.
"Alex let me take my time, she wasn’t judgemental and she didn’t push to get the ultimate end goal of him sleeping through the night. she waited until I was ready and strong enough but offered lots of helpful tips that made an immediate difference. Then, after a few weeks of better sleep we started with the more detailed work that lead to my baby now sleeping through the night. She is a genius!"
- Shelley, Hertfordshire.
"I highly recommend ‘Sleep by Alexandra’. My first born was always a naturally good sleeper; so when my second baby came along and was still waking up every 2 or 3 hours at 5 months old I didn’t know what to do! But I knew I needed help. I started by reading Alexandra’s blog which helped me to realise I was over dressing my baby; and then with Alex’s personalised plan, we finally got my little girl sleeping through the night! Not only that but she settles for every nap in her cot - something my eldest never did! I have finally got my much needed sleep back and a little bit of ‘me time’! I can’t thank Alex enough. I feel recharged and refreshed!"
