I suffer with anxiety and Chris was understood my fears around sleep training. He helped me figure a way that I was comfortable. The ongoing support he provides is amazing too. 100% recommend Chris to anyone!

Nicola, Kent (Charlie, 20 months)

Jaxon had no routine; he would only sleep on us or in his bouncy chair. At night he would always end up in our bed. Now he goes to sleep in his cot himself! Chris was so helpful and responds to messages quickly. Get Chris on board, you won’t regret it.

Alana, Kent (Jaxon 10 months)

When Chris told me he could get Rohan sleeping the whole night in his cot within 2 weeks – I laughed! Night 11 on his plan and he was! And Chris’ support is genuinely unlimited. 100% recommend.
