“Before we met Edel were we completely exhausted and at our wits end, up every night at least 7 times with our son. Edel tailored a personalised, easy to follow naptime and bedtime routine. Within about 10 days Dylan was happy in his cot and slept 12 hours straight! Edel was calm and extremely supportive thoughout the whole thing and it was such a comfort knowing we had her there to offer advice should other issues or problems arise. We couldn’t speak more highly of Edel and she was such a fantastic person to deal with.” *Hilda & Robbi
“I cannot recommend baby sleep academy highly enough. My son at 10 months was not sleeping through the night. I was back at work and pregnant with my second, we were all exhausted and needed help. As soon as I contacted Edel in baby sleep academy I instantly felt relief. We were supported through every step and had immediate results. Edel has been a support even after our initial consultation offering little tips that make all the difference.” *Grainne
“We contacted Edel when our first boy was 7 months and was unable to settle himself to sleep during the day & night. I was just finished breastfeeding & he was so used to feeding to sleep on me and never knew how to settle himself. Edel gave us tips on how to change our habits and teach our son how to settle himself without mammy & daddy rocking him to sleep. There was a few rough nights but Edel really encouraged and supported us through it. There was very little crying and within a week he was sleeping through the night & taking proper naps.
“When our second boy was born he had silent reflux and a milk protein intolerance. This took a few weeks to diagnose and we found it very difficult to settle him. Although the nights weren’t too bad the days were horrendous with constant crying. Edel guided me on how to settle him without falling into bad habits from an early stage. There was plenty of tough times when I did give in and bad habits did develop but Edel always supported me to try and get back to a good sleeping / eating routine.
“Without Edel’s help and support I know I certainly wouldn’t be in a home with two very happy & content boys that sleep all night and thrive on their routine each day. She always understood how I felt, crying was kept to a minimum & I never felt under pressure to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with.
“We would highly recommend Edel as a baby sleep consultant that can solve your baby sleep problems – she’s amazing!!”*Lesley
“We contacted Edel when our first born was 8 weeks old as he (and I) were getting into a bad habit of breast-feeding to sleep every night, which took longer and longer, up to 5 or 6 hours at times. I had no time to myself the entire day and despite being a new Mom and being told that this time was unpredictable I knew in my gut that it was wrong. There was no sign of any improvements or independence developing in terms of settling himself. It was only getting worse. Edel was able to help us as she also believed that these bad habits could be fixed. She put a plan in place for us to get him into a more normal routine. Although difficult in the short term, we knew that the alternative was wrong. We saw improvements within a few days, first with the night time routine and then later on with the naps during the day. He was a much happier more rested baby and of course we were too!
“We put our faith in Edel’s expertise in terms of sleep and we weren’t disappointed. We found her understanding and reassuring but also firm to help us move forward at more difficult times. At later stages of development where the routine was again interrupted we were able to consult with her and given advice to help us get over those new hurdles. With the constant doubt we felt as new parents she was able to point us in the right direction.
“We now have 2 children and saw the signs of the same issues happening with our second child also but were able to lead her in the right direction based on our first experience. Both our children are very good sleepers at night (sleeping through the night from 4 months) and babysitters have found the work easy!” *Muireann
