Sleep is Happiness



There is a defined link between chronic sleep deprivation and post-natal depression or “the baby blues.” Most families report a dramatic improvement in their moods (and their baby’s!) once the family is sleeping well.

Your baby has unique sleep habits and a unique personality. You have your parenting style. The "magic" happens when we create an approach that's right for your baby and that you can feel good about as a parent.

About Me



I know how it feels to be exhausted and at breaking point because your baby won’t sleep. I’ve been there myself and the good news is, it’s quicker and easier than you think to solve.

I’m Vicky and my son, Oscar, was a terrible sleeper right from the beginning; he would wake up several times during the night and needed fed or rocked to get back to sleep. I couldn’t get him onto a routine and my husband and I were exhausted. Oscar was exhausted and grumpy too. I read all the books and listened to all sorts of advice but I just felt like a bit of a failure. Something had to change.

When he was 6 months old a friend suggested (or should I say insisted!) that we speak to a Sleep Sense™ Consultant. I have to say I was reluctant at first, but it changed our lives. It was amazing! It only took a few days for Oscar to be on a routine and sleeping 12 hours at night. He became a happier baby. It felt like a miracle!

Of course, then my friends and family asked me to help them with their children’s sleep which led me to read more into the complexities of sleeping habits. I soon trained under Dana Obleman, author of the Sleep Sense™ Programme, to become a Certified Sleep Consultant.

Now, I’m privileged to help families get the sleep they deserve.

The Approach



The Sleep Sense™ approach is based on the belief that healthy sleep habits make for healthy children. A well-rested child is curious, energetic, happy, playful, and eager to learn.

When parents entrust me as their child’s “sleep guide” they are placing a great deal of trust in me, and I want to let you know that I take this responsibility very seriously. The Sleep Sense™ method places so much emphasis on accommodating different parenting styles.

My approach to improving your child’s sleep is simple:


I’ll give you honest information about why sleep is so important for your child’s well-being (this will give you all the motivation you need to make changes to your child’s sleep habits.)

I’ll lay out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan. All children are different and nobody knows your child better than you do. I’ll encourage you to use your knowledge of your child to customise his or her sleep plan.

I’ll tell you what you should expect along the way.


A little note about the “crying” question: Since people always ask me about whether my program involves “crying it out,” I think it’s something that deserves to be addressed here.

Crying is often your child’s way of protesting change, and you can expect that making changes to their sleep habits will result in some protest. That’s why I’m always sure to tell parents that my program will most likely involve at least some amount of protest on the child’s part.

Please understand that I will never ask you to leave your child to cry alone, nor will I ask you to ignore their cries. The reason that The Sleep Sense™ Program is so effective is that is allows you develop a plan that you feel comfortable with, based on what you know about your child.
