Andrew, Priya and Ananya (Written by Daddy)

Our daughter is self-settling into her morning nap on a sunny day in May. We know she’ll settle and during her naps we are getting free time! We’re staying with grandparents so no chores!

 

The bleak, pre-Hannah, sleep-deprived, anxiety-ridden winter is behind us.

 

You brought us here. You carried us to sanity. Thankyou.

 

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. We were stuck in a trap that must affect so many parents it’s amazing there aren’t more people like you out there. I hope you realise how good you are at what you do.

 

When my wife told me that she wanted to enlist your support to help our 6 month old I was sceptical as we’d just had a mostly negative experience with the previous sleep trainer. We had hoped that doing our daughter’s first sleep training over the Christmas holidays (with the previous trainer) would be an ideal opportunity for us to work together and break all the bad habits that we’d fallen into. It wasn’t a happy Christmas break as before long the small improvements were a distant memory and we’d reverted back to where we started.

 

When we got in touch with you (Hannah) our daughter would only nap in a sling and was waking up to eight times a night and required feeding back to sleep.

 

We were so desperate for help we were on our knees. Family life had become totally unmanageable: my wife was suffering physically and emotionally and we were totally reliant on her amazing parents for support.

 

For anyone reading this who thinks Hannah’s success rate sounds too good to be true, you need to have faith. IT DOES WORK. Just follow the steps and have faith.

 

After completing your training I am so glad that that my scepticism didn’t prevent us from getting what we needed.

 

Hat’s off to you Hannah – you gave us exactly what we needed, when we needed it and in such a supportive way. You have such wide knowledge covering far more than just sleep and you are especially skilled in remaining supportive on the phone at 2am!

 

It’s a credit to you, my wife’s persistence, and my amazing in laws that I can now spend time doing things that were beyond my wildest dreams a few months ago: having meals out with my wife, taking our daughter to restaurants, re-building my  professional network and thinking about my future again.

 

I hope we meet one day and I get to hug you for my gratitude is beyond words.
