Is your little one waking frequently throughout the night? Unsettled at bedtime? An early riser? A professional cat napper? If so, I can help you!
Hello! My name is Amanda, I am a certified Holistic Sleep Coach based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire and the proud owner of Dream Time Tots. I work with families offering sleep support for babies and children from newborn up to 6 years of age.
There are SO many books, articles and blogs available out there which are great to provide basic information on sleep but, ultimately every family situation, every parent and every child is different. So if you would like to put a tailor made plan in place, to suit your individual circumstances, then you have come to the right place!
There are many different approaches to sleep support and my aim is to work with you and your family using gentle, evidence based techniques whilst taking into consideration your personal circumstances, parenting style and being responsive to your child's needs.
I am fully insured, a member of the British Sleep Society and fluent in British Sign Language so I am able to offer Skype consultations to hard of hearing parents who wish to use this service.
Amanda is a miracle worker! I first seeked Amanda's help when my 5 month old baby boy was waking hourly at night time, taking cat naps during the day and heavily relying on being rocked to sleep due to his reflux.
The lack of sleep was having a huge impact on not only myself and my son, but also my three year old daughter and my husband too. It's safe to say we were all extremely tired!
From the start she was amazing. She asked lots of questions about him and his routine and gave us tailor made advice and techniques to try to slowly and gently teach him how to sleep by himself. Within a week, he was able to settle himself to sleep in his cot at bedtime with a little help from us, without being rocked!
Hourly wakings have now stretched to regular 7 or 8 hour stretches with one feed during the night and he is now able to self settle during day sleeps too! We are all so much happier now we are all getting the sleep we need. I can't recommend Amanda enough! Thank you so much x
