gentle sleep specialist consultant Townsville & Australia

Gentle Sleep Training Specialist

Hi, my name is Hayley Laidlow and I am a certified Sleep Sense consultant. Prior to becoming a sleep consultant, I worked in the education sector for 17 years as both a teacher and principal. I graduated with a Bachelor of Education, Honours from James Cook University in 2004 and went on to complete my Masters of Education in 2017. I have extensive experience in working closely with families to support the needs of their children both in their education and wellbeing. Having worked with many families of young children, I know just how important a great night’s sleep is for your little one’s growth and development and how important it is for you!

Why I Became a Sleep Consultant

My partner Ken and I have a beautiful daughter Asha and I am Aunty to Radek and Elora. As a Mum, I know just how difficult things can get if your baby isn’t sleeping well. Asha was a notorious catnapper who would only contact sleep through the day – a classic ‘velcro baby’! Her sleep patterns were highly irregular and I used to joke that she ‘didn’t day sleep’. I was exhausted, wrung out and felt like I never had any time to myself, until I found Sleep Sense and it changed our lives. Asha now has regular day naps and sleeps between 11 and 12 hours every night, it was like a miracle! It was this drastic change that prompted me to make the change into sleep consultation.
