We decided to get in contact with Rachael to finally address our 9 month old son's sleep. She came highly recommended by my husband's colleague who had recently used her sleep package with his daughter. I had previously used two other sleep consultants but neither had made any difference to our sleep situation.
After a thorough consultation Rachael recognised our son had a very strong feed to sleep association. She put together our personalised sleep plan but ensured we agreed on a method we were comfortable with, explaining the pro/cons.
I was nervous about taking his dummy away immediately but Rachael was understanding and agreed we could wait a few days.
With Rachael's support I actually decided to take it away on night 2. Allowing us to be flexible made such a difference.
Rachael was very encouraging throughout and answered my constant questions but if possible I'd always recommend to have support at home too as I definitely needed this to help me stay consistent.
By night 3 we saw some big changes and by night 5 our son slept through the night for the first time. A whole 12.5hrs.
We had a few up and downs but Rachael was always on hand to suggest tweaks to our routine and help us back on track even after our 2 week phone support.
We can't thank Rachael enough for helping us to teach our son the skills he needs to sleep well and now returning to work doesn't feel so daunting.
