Common Sleep Problems

1 in 2 babies have trouble sleeping. On average, new parents lose 109 minutes of sleep EVERY night for 12 months. That’s over 600 hours of sleep in the first year!

Sleep deprivation has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, poor sex life, depression, anxiety and more!

4 Month Sleep Regression

The dreaded 4 month sleep regression can be an incredibly challenging and exhausting time for new parents. Multiple wake-ups during the night and shorter sleep cycles can leave you feeling physically and mentally drained.

Night Terrors

Night terrors in children are intense episodes of apparent terror or panic during sleep, and can be accompanied by screaming, thrashing, and appearing inconsolable. Night terrors are distressing and painful for you to witness and manage. 

Catnapping

A catnapping baby can disrupt your everyday life. Short naps will not provide sufficient rest for your baby, leading to increased irritability, crankiness, and difficulty settling down for longer stretches of sleep at night.

Sleep Anxiety

Sleep anxiety can have a significant impact on your own sleep and functioning. When your child has trouble sleeping, it often leads to disrupted sleep for you as well. Sleep deprivation can affect concentration, cognitive abilities, and overall well-being, leading to increased stress and anxiety. The strain of dealing with sleep issues can cause tension within your relationship.

Sleep Help for Maternity Through to Pre-teens

Maternity and Newborn Sleep Shaping 

I work with expectant parents to help them get prepared for the arrival of their little one and support them in developing excellent sleep habits once baby arrives. For newborns up to 4 months Calm Nights uses gentle sleep shaping techniques. This involves setting up good habits and a nightly routine to gently guide newborns towards longer and more restful sleep periods.

Baby Sleep Training

During the dreaded 4-month sleep regression, when babies experience disrupted sleep due to developmental changes, Calm Nights can offer support and guidance on how to gently teach your baby how to sleep well independently. If your baby is waking multiple times during the night or catnapping during the day, we can help get your baby’s sleep back on track.  Additionally, if you’re struggling with your baby waking up at 5 am, we will work with you to analyse what is causing the early wakes and develop personalised strategies to gradually shift your baby’s wake time to a more desirable hour.

Toddler Sleep Training

If you have a bedtime battle every night or find your child constantly wandering the house during the night, Calm Nights can provide practical solutions. We will work with you to establish a consistent bedtime routine that creates a calm and soothing environment. We offer strategies to address any underlying anxieties or fears that may be contributing to bedtime avoidance. With our expert guidance, you’ll learn techniques to gently encourage your child to stay in bed and feel secure throughout the night. Calm Nights understands the challenges you face and will provide you with the tools and support you need to help your child develop healthy sleep habits, ensuring everyone gets the rest they deserve.

Older Children Sleep Training

Calm Nights is here to help tired parents tackle common sleep problems like night terrors and sleep anxiety. If your child experiences night terrors, where they suddenly wake up frightened and confused, Calm Nights can provide calm, clear guidance. We will teach you techniques to create a calm and safe sleep environment, helping your child feel more secure. For sleep anxiety, when your child feels worried or fearful about going to bed, Calm Nights can offer practical strategies to address your child’s fears. We will work with you to establish a soothing bedtime routine and teach relaxation techniques to help your child unwind before sleep. With Calm Nights’ support, you’ll gain the knowledge and tools to manage night terrors and sleep anxiety, allowing your child to have peaceful nights and wake up feeling rested.

Testimonials

toddler sleep

“Dustin liked to wake up every hour, usually every 1 to 2 hours throughout the night and he would struggle to get back to sleep as well, meaning that we could be awake with him for a couple of hours at a time. It was pretty horrible and very stressful. The more sleep deprived we got, the tougher it became. Once we started implementing the strategies Hayley suggested, Dustin was pretty much laying down straight away and settling on his own. After a week, his sleep periods at night had improved. For us as parents, we felt a lot better in terms of just being able to function at work and we are a whole lot happier and more relaxed during the day. If you’re thinking about working with Hayley, I would say it’s definitely worth doing, it’s a no brainer really.”

Mum of Dustin, 15 months old

“Prior to working with Hayley, there was definitely room for improvement with Zoe’s sleep, but I didn’t think that she would improve so much! The change was amazing. It only took 2 days to see a huge difference, we were very surprised, we didn’t think it would work so quickly. The first night was hard, but then the second night was heaps easier and she’s been good ever since then. We’ve gone from waking multiple times through the night to sleeping through almost every night now. I feel much more human now that Zoe is sleeping well. If you’re having issues with your little one’s sleep, I’d definitely recommend working with Hayley. It worked for us.”

Hannah

Mum of Zoe, 12 weeks old

“When we first contacted Hayley, our boys were extreme cat nappers AND they were waking up every 20 to 40 minutes in the night! I was in tears all the time, I felt frustrated, angry and upset. It was not a good place to be. I just felt like a zombie in the day, especially because there’s two of them.

Thankfully, after working with Hayley, we feel like humans again. We’re sleeping much better. Their day sleeps are much better and we’re getting some actual sleep at night, it just feels like a game changer. Their sleep has just improved so dramatically it’s just crazy. They’re happier babies, it makes me a happier mum. My outlook on parenting is completely different now. If you’re thinking about working with Hayley, don’t hesitate, just do it. You can’t wait for these things to get better on their own. If you really need somebody who’s going to support what you need and want for your children, Hayley is the right person for you.”

Michela

Mum of Rohan and Leonardo, 12 weeks old

“Hayley from Calm Nights Sleep Consultancy saved us! My husband and I were first time parents and thought that maybe it was very normal for us not to sleep. From the first night of working with Hayley we felt empowered and educated to make positive change. We were shocked at how quickly our son had picked up this new routine and saw results within 2 nights! Hayley has been a life saver and we are so very thankful we have the education and skills to help our little one sleep better!”

Ashleigh

Mum of Kaylan, 4 months old

“From the moment I reached out to Hayley I felt a sense of calm. Hayley is personable, empathetic, understanding and has a genuine interest in assisting children and families achieve great sleep. Hayley has worked with my family to understand Sophie’s sleep needs and given me the tools to manage the “off” days. Knowing my daughter is getting the sleep she needs for her growth and development is an added bonus.
I highly recommend Hayley for any of your child’s sleeping needs.”

Alecia

Mum of Sophie, 6 months old

“I am really happy with our experience working with Hayley @ Calm Nights. I have gone from sleep deprived zombie mum to super mum in just two short weeks. This program came into our lives at just the right time, our daughter took to it like a duck on water and now is achieving 11-12hr night sleeps and very predictable day sleeps. I am very grateful for the help we received from Hayley”

Tayla

Mum of Delilah, 16 months old

“Hayley was extremely patient and understanding. She listened to me and guided me. She didn’t tell me what to do, she asked me if I was comfortable with trying the things she was looking to introduce. She was patient and understanding when we had a bad night. I was worried about teething interrupting her sleep training because normally it would have her awake multiple times a night. When Hayley told me better sleep helps with teething I was skeptical, but after three weeks my little one had cut 4 molars and we didn’t even notice!”

Kerrie

Mum of Mystique, 15 months old

“Stevie is now much more predictable and is getting much more sleep. She knows her bedtime routine really well and will now tell us when she is ready for bed. She likes her routine and she tells us “It’s time for bed, the light needs to go off, my sound’s not on, where’s my sleep suit?”, it’s really cute but also so nice that she is loving bedtime now. If your child isn’t sleeping, you need to call Hayley because she’ll sort it out!”

Sally

Mum of Stevie, 14 months old
Catnapping night wakings

“I couldn’t recommend Hayley enough! She helped us more than we ever thought possible. Our son has gone from waking up anywhere between 5-15 times a night to sleeping through almost every single night now and his naps are better than ever!

Before seeing Hayley, Rory and I were struggling through the days, I was having multiple breakdowns, not even sure if I could even manage if I ended up with a another baby. But now, we’re waking up in the day with more energy and we definitely have more patience. We are in a much better routine, and it’s made it so much easier as it’s made our days more predictable. The best part of the process was how quickly everything changed and seeing the difference in such a short amount of time, it helped us to stick with what we were doing because we could see for ourselves how much of an impact it was having.

I can honestly say I have no regrets other than not doing it sooner. Thank you so much Hayley!”

Chloe

Mum of Tyler, 10 months
twins sleeping

“Twins can be difficult at the best of times, but when you have two babies that aren’t sleeping throughout the day, your sanity slowly tends to dissipate! When we approached Hayley, both Oliver and Leo were having inconsistent naps, relying on contact naps and spending most of the day upset and unsettled.

The boys easily adapted to the set routine and were able to improve their sleep skills almost instantly. We came in with the goal of improving day naps and ended with solid day naps AND sleeping through the night! It’s now much easier to plan my day and my husband can also go to bed knowing he (most likely) won’t be woken multiple times throughout the night before going to work the next day.

We would definitely recommend reaching out and getting some assistance if sleep is a struggle! Sleep training with twins isn’t easy, but it’s definitely possible.”
