What we can
do for you
When your child isn’t sleeping well, it can be all-consuming. I know because I have been there. Whilst it really may not feel like it at times, your little one does want to sleep. All children have both the need and the ability to sleep well - it’s just that some require more help than others to realise their sleep potential.
The good news is that helping your child achieve great sleep does not need to be an ordeal.
It’s often said that it takes a village to raise a child. Whether your village comprises family members, friends or other new parents you’ve met along your pregnancy or parenting journey, everyone will have a view regarding what you “should” be doing to help your child sleep. Many will have shared that opinion with you - maybe more than once. And let’s not even get started on what the internet has to offer!
All-too-often, two extremes are presented: leave your child to cry or resign yourself to the fact that they will, eventually, grow out of hourly waking, even if that takes several years. No children are the same and when it comes to sleep, the factors driving sleep challenges, and in turn the best solution, are as diverse as the children themselves. It is always possible to achieve biological best sleeping (which respects a child’s age and developmental stage) using gentle approaches where you work with, rather than against, your child - and where you support and respond to them, every single step along the way.
At Little Sleep Stars, we know a lot about sleep. But you are the expert in your child. We will achieve the best outcome for your family because I will listen to you, work with you and respect your priorities and parenting style.
I will never recommend you leave your child alone to cry.
If your current sleep situation isn’t bringing your family the rest it needs, book a free introductory call to discuss how things can be gently turned around. If you are based outside of the UK, please note that all diary times are GMT/BST.
The last thing you need is another person telling you things you don't believe will work.
That's why I offer a complimentary introduction call so you have the chance to share what's happening for you and your little one right now and understand how I can help.
Because your time with your child is precious, we do this in a 15-minute call, so you can get a feel for what we can do together. On that call, I will either make a recommendation for you to check out something that may be holding your little one back from achieving their biological-best sleep, or invite you to find out more about how we can work together.
Not all sleep-situations require one-to-one support. Many families find that the right information, at the right time, is all they need to help get their little one sleeping soundly.
Our Sleep Solutions On-Demand platform hosts a video mini-series, crammed with information and tips to help you identify why your child might be struggling with sleep. The best part? As the platform is instantly-accessible, you can start immediately - even if you are reading this at 3am!
Imagine giving the gift of a good night’s sleep, the most useful gift for new or expectant parents!
Think of this as a live “what to expect” where you discover what is “normal” for baby sleep and how you can gently optimise sleep from the outset.
- A one-hour call focused on you, your baby, your lifestyle and parenting principles so you feel confident right from the start...
- 24/7 access to my most valued sleep guide videos in a library that saves you hours of searching on the internet for that one thing that might work...

We whole-heartedly recommend Lauren. I can only say I wish we had met her sooner. We really struggled with our then-11-month-old - she was awake more than she was asleep at night. We were reliant on every sleep crutch there was; because we were so exhausted we couldn't see the wood for the trees. We got in touch with Lauren and she did a thorough initial consultation with us before coming up with a few different plans of action - all gentle and child-focussed. She educated us about child sleep and gave us various tools and techniques to try with our daughter. She was with us every step of the way. She is knowledgeable, empathetic and quick to respond to questions; or should something not work (our daughter is spirited and persistent!), she is able to offer alternative solutions. It's clear she genuinely cares about the families she works with; she understands what it's like to be going out of your mind with sleep deprivation, and she wants to help everyone get the sleep they deserve.
Lauren has been absolutely brilliant; our 6 month old baby has gone from waking every 20-60 minutes to sleeping through. Lauren put together a very practical plan and taught us so much about sleep, giving us the confidence and knowledge to deal with tricky night settles and getting our baby into the right nap pattern. We can't thank her enough and we recommend her to everyone who mentions that they are having sleep issues with their little one.
I contacted Lauren as my 3 year old had never consistently slept through the night . It was the best decision I ever made . My husband and I were completely exhausted and it was really affecting our health and well being. He also had very early wake ups (usually between 5-5:30 but occasionally could be around 4:30am). The night before I rang Lauren, Leo had got up 4 times and had had a beaker of milk to re settle each time. He did not fall asleep by himself and always needed help to fall asleep and re settle . He would sometimes scream and refuse to get into bed . He did not let my husband put him to bed or re settle him at night and always screamed for me. Lauren was amazing. She was calm, supportive and completely realistic. She gave us hope and confidence that we could make changes at a time when we were so exhausted. It was always small, manageable changes. After about the first week, his night wake ups reduced to one and he was having no milk up re settle . By the end of the first month , he wasn?t waking up at all at night, was mostly settling himself to sleep at bed time, had no bedtime resistance at all and was happily letting my husband put him to bed every other night . The early wake ups took a few weeks more work (as he was determined!) but these also resolved themselves. I would strongly recommend Lauren to any parents struggling with their child?s sleep . She was a lifesaver to us!
By the time we contacted Lauren, we were desperate. Our 1 year old was waking every hour during the night and it was taking 1+ hours to get her back to sleep. As first time parents, we didn't know where to turn. Lack of sleep had started to affect mine and my husband's day time functioning, our moods, our relationship, and our exhausted little girl. I had even given up the idea of ever having another baby - the thought sleep battles without support was unfathomable. From the beginning, Lauren's consultations and intake form discussions were so thorough; taking the time to really understand our family's sleep goals and the specific needs of our child. She helped us to understand sleep in a way that no amount of googling in a year had. By the third night, our daughter was putting herself to sleep without tears and was "sleeping through" the night. Our entire family dynamic changed and throughout the process, it's only gotten better! Lauren has given us the tools we needed, reassurance we desired, and an "if, then" plan to get our daughter to sleep without ever leaving her to "cry it out". Lauren has been there for us through slight adjustments to our sleep routine, as well as guiding us through the process of maintaining a sleep routine while traveling. We will continue to happily share Lauren's process and contact information with all of our parent friends!
I was an exhausted mum thinking that my baby's sleep would never improve. I was wrong after one week it was like having a different baby! I can't recommend Lauren enough. She has guided me through our personal sleep plan in the most professional and patient way possible and she has changed our lives. My 16 month old sleeps like a dream. Thank you Lauren!
I only wish we had spoken to Lauren before, rather than waiting until our daughter was two. Our little girl was a terrible sleeper, all my friends had babies who slept or only woke once in the night, not ours. She had FOMO from the day she was born, and during lockdown she took it to another level. For three months I slept on the floor of her room to get her to sleep, and she woke several times a night, needing us in there with her to go back to sleep. Then enough was enough and we called Lauren in. Lauren was amazing, she was sympathetic in a non judgemental way (as parents we always worry we're being judged!), and her advice was science based, making me feel really assured it was the right thing to do. She had clever tips and tricks - that are all super easy to implement, but in a sleep deprived haze, you can't think straight. And she gave us the confidence to be able to parent as a team and not blame each other. Throughout all the calls, I felt like I was speaking to a very knowledgeable friend who understood the pain points we go through when our toddler refused the most basic of human functions; sleep. I've since recommended her to so many people and if we do get any regressions, I know I can count on Lauren to give me the advice to get through it!
