Success Stories

A few words from families I’ve helped

newborn sleep

“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!”

“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.”

“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”

“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!”

“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!”

“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!”

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.”

6 month sleep regression

“I was expecting some improvement but certainly not the dramatic changes that saw Percy move from waking up every few hours to sleeping for 10 hours straight at night. Percy took to the changes in his routine immediately, and we have been able to keep to the schedule for day naps easily. Adding structure to his sleep has made it easy to organise the day around his nap times and enabled Tegan and I to attend more outings as a couple and individually, which I believe has been important for our relationship.

Doing this with Hayley has not only helped bub get a good night’s sleep but has taken a massive load off of Mum and Dad, one that we did not even realise was manifesting until looking back. I would ask anyone, even thinking this could be useful to them and their scenario, to please get in touch with Hayley. She was terrific to work with and has given us a solid foundation to build excellent sleep behaviours for our child.”

‘I just wanted to thank you personally for the guidance and support you’ve provided for Renee and I with Rhys’s sleep.  We feel we are now in the best place we have been with Rhys’s sleep and some great patterns are starting to emerge from the start of the night to the morning. The bedtime routine you provided has worked well, the routine is easy to follow and the document with data input and reflection are excellent resources. We now feel we have a clear direction moving forward with Rhys’ sleep.’

‘Prior to working with Hayley, Mathias was stuck in a pattern that perpetuated early morning wake ups and he was refusing his afternoon naps. I didn’t know how to tackle the problem and with my husband working away a lot, I was starting to feel helpless and exhausted. For someone coping with perinatal depression and anxiety, it was a recipe for disaster and I knew I had to do something.

Since working with Hayley, early mornings are mostly behind us, we are able to enjoy being a family. I have much more energy and am no longer stressing about Mathias’ sleep. He now follows a fantastic routine which has given our life the structure and stability we were craving. We can now participate in social outings as a family, and I am loving the opportunities that this has opened up to us.’

“As we awaited the arrival of Marcus we wanted to find out as much information as possible about setting a good sleep routine in place early on. Having known Hayley for a number of years there was no hesitation in reaching out to her to see how she could help us. Hayley provided us with great information prior to his arrival which allowed us to have a rough routine in mind, then once he was here with the spreadsheet that allows you to see the progress and the amazing support calls we have been able to get him into a routine that is seeing him sleep 4 hour blocks or more of a night and a routine that is working for our family.

We would highly recommend anyone wanting help getting their little one into a great sleep routine to reach out to Hayley as you won’t be disappointed.”

“Calm Nights has been a life saver! I have my energy back & more than anything I have a well rested little girl. Knowing she’s getting adequate quality sleep reassures me that she will grow healthy both physically and mentally.
Hayley had exceptional communication and support throughout the process.
Ah! I finally get to spend quality time with my little girl & quality time to myself 😊”
