About Sylvia

As a first-time mother, I discovered the joys and challenges of parenthood, grappling with exhaustion and guilt. Inspired by the 2020 lockdown, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery through blogging, learning to balance expectations and embracing my whole parenting journey with more positivity.

My mission focuses on a crucial aspect of well-being: sleep. Having personally battled sleep deprivation, I turned to a sleep expert to transform my son’s sleep habits. This gave me the confidence to help my son long-term, not just with his sleep, but with my entire parenting approach. This experience drove me to become a Certified Infant & Child Sleep Consultant!

Today, as a Certified Partner of the Sleep Nanny, I provide customised sleep solutions for babies and tired parents. I am committed to exceeding your sleep goals, offering compassionate support, and helping families thrive.

From waking 3+ times a night to sleeping through.

Sylvia was very informative right from the start, she was able to put mine and husband’s mind at ease with any concerns we had with starting the programme and answered all of our questions with confidence. The beginning of the course was very tough emotionally and Sylvia was always at hand to offer us support and give us encouragement when we needed it most. She praised us for all our efforts, which helped keep us motivated, and gave advice when we had any struggles.

In terms of the actual sleep progress, well we couldn’t believe that our 13month old went from waking 3+ times a night with me breastfeeding him to sleep every time, to now putting him down in his cot and leaving the room immediately and him sleeping through the night on his own! Sylvia’s help has truly been life-changing, I can now go out more as I don’t feel so tired and I don’t dread what the night will hold anymore! I’d definitely recommend her, 100%.

An eye opening and positive experience

We can not express what an eye opening and positive experience it was having Sylvia work with our family! When we found Sylvia, our daughter (Penelope – 8 months old) was sleeping in the bed with my husband and I just so we could find some form of sleep each night. She would not self soothe, naps were erratic, short and she was being held most of the time. We had tried so many different techniques we found on the internet. We were exhausted! We knew we needed help. Sylvia asked all the important questions and learned about Penelope’s personality. She took the time to really explain why Penelope was having those behaviours and provided various ways we could help her. While working with Sylvia our daughter became sick, my husband went out of town and we had some “setbacks”, but Sylvia was wonderful to understand, encourage and adapt the plans to make sure we were successful while showing compassion for our family. She was available to speak with us for video calls and was very responsive to any emails we sent. She took the time to get to know us and set up a step-by-step personalized plan that didn’t make us feel overwhelmed with making these ultimately large changes. She easily adjusted and advised any changes and new techniques as needed. Sylvia was the BEST to work with and it seemed like the process was almost magic. It was truly amazing how quickly Penelope responded to the new routine. Our daughter was sleeping through the night in her own crib within 2 weeks! Sylvia improved the quality of sleep for our entire family!

I had tried everything

To say I had tried everything is an understatement. My daughter was not getting the sleep she needed and our whole family was stressed. I began talking with Sylvia-who assured me that she could help my daughter, and our whole family, learn to love sleep. As my daughter was 2, Sylvia worked carefully to ensure that the sleep approach she crafted was appropriate for my daughter’s developmental stage and temperament. With Sylvia’s caring, consistent and positive sleep approach, encouragement and support, my daughter is now happily going to bed, sleeping all night, and waking rested in the morning. My husband and I have our nights back to reconnect as partners. I cannot recommend Sylvia enough. My daughter, my family, and I owe her so much gratitude for helping all of us get our rest so we can be a happier and healthier family.

I now have my evenings back and my husband back in bed. To me, that’s invaluable.

My now 19-month-old son has been bed-sharing with me pretty much from day 1. Well, our bed is not big enough for all 3 of us so my husband had been sleeping in the guest room. I am also pregnant with #2, so it was time to get him out of our bed to his own crib in his own room.

We would not have been able to have done this without Sylvia. She got us on a nap and bedtime schedule. Oliver used to require me to fall asleep and would almost always need to fall asleep on me. If I put him down too soon he would cry and I would need to pick him up and set him to put him back on my chest. Oliver is now putting himself to sleep and sleeping through the night in his own crib in his own room. She has provided almost 24 hr support throughout the process.

I now have my evenings back and my husband back in bed. To me, that’s invaluable.

Thank you so much, Sylvia!

Before working with Sylvia I was sleep deprived, stressed, and I wasn’t myself

Working with Sylvia has been amazing. I would recommend her to anyone. Before working with Sylvia and learning from her, I was sleep deprived, stressed, and I wasn’t myself. My little one wasn’t sleeping through the night. She’d wake up sometimes up to 7 times in a night and couldn’t sleep independently. But once I started working with Sylvia and sleep training, my baby girl was sleeping through the night in no time with little to no night wakings. She’s now sleeping through the night without waking and getting the sleep she needs.

I have a completely different baby due to her now being able to get the sleep she is supposed to get. I’ve also got my sanity back. Sleep training has been a huge win for the both of us. Syliva was so kind and supportive throughout the entire training. She was responsive and engaged the entire time. She really does offer a personal touch. She cares and isn’t about making money. She wants to helps moms struggling when it comes to babies getting the sleep they need. I’d absolutely use her services again!

First time mum – enough was enough and I needed some help

Being a first time Mum, I felt completely overwhelmed by the masses of information out there about babies sleep – most of it was just contradictory to the other information I had read the previous day! In the beginning, Oliver slept beautifully and he was actually sleeping through the night by 2 months of age however, this all changed when the 4 month sleep regression hit at around 3.5 months.

After months of restless nights, short naps resulting in contact naps and days spent in the dark rocking Oliver to sleep, I knew enough was enough and I needed some help. My mental health had also taken a turn and I had no idea the impact sleep deprivation can have on somebody.

I came across Sylvia’s profile on Facebook as she was answering someone’s question about babies sleep on a Sleeping Training and Advice Group. I reached out to Sylvia and she instantly put me at ease and I felt instantly reassured that this was the right step for our family.

My time with Sylvia has been challenging, emotional and enlightening. Oliver’s sleep has improved ten fold! Oliver will now happily nap and go to sleep for the night in his cot (in his own room!!) and get the sleep he needs.

I’m so glad I found Sylvia’s profile when I did! She’s not only helped Oliver get the sleep he needs, she’s helped me feel more confident in my knowledge of sleep and in myself (almost).

Thank you Sylvia.
