I honestly think this is the best money we have ever spent!
I honestly think this is the best money we have ever spent! Our baby is nearly 9 months old and, after a couple of months of initially sleeping quite well, things had deteriorated to the extent that she was getting half the amount of sleep she should have been, not napping during the day, and waking up to 7 or 8 times a night (and then sometimes refusing to go back to sleep for hours). My poor wife was in bits from the lack of sleep and constant breastfeeding demands and the rest of the family was suffering too. Lynsey turned everything around in just 3 or 4 days. I think she might have some sort of magical powers. I just didn’t think we could have a baby that was sleeping through the night in less than a week. It’s no exaggeration to say that our lives have been transformed. THANK YOU (27/10/17)
I was quite sceptical about this programme, before our initial contact with Lynsey. How wrong was I?!
Prior to following this sleep programme our little boy would wake up anywhere between 10-20 times a night. We would have to drive around in the car in order for him to nap during the day and it was a complete lottery as to when he would sleep. He would usually have to be breastfed or rocked to sleep and ended up sleeping with us in our bed for a number of months. Me, my wife and our little boy had not had any form of unbroken sleep in over a year and it was definitely catching up with us all. We had experienced little to no success with so many other sleep programmes and suggestions in the past, that I was quite sceptical about this programme, before our initial contact with Lynsey. How wrong was I?! Lynsey, I cannot thank you enough for literally changing our families’ lives. On day 2 of the programme, our little boy slept through the night for the first time in his life (around 11hrs) and napped during the day, in his cot. We could not believe it. Me and my wife were both awake 2 hours before our little boy actually woke up, watching the baby monitor in amazement and shock, as he was still fast asleep and had not woken up once since we put him to bed, the night before. Since then, he has consistently slept throughout the night and napped during the day, all in his cot. Lynsey's guidance and support before, during and after the programme is second to none. She is very personable and always answered any queries we had promptly and offered supportive suggestions throughout our little boy's sleep transformation. The direct phone calls really helped boost our confidence in our methods and we looked forward to the calls to share our successes. I cannot recommend Lynsey highly enough. It is the best money we have ever spent. Many thanks again, from an all-round, happier, well rested family :). (23/08/20)
WOW. Totally worth every penny
Orla suffered with silent reflux and had ZERO routine and needed to be rocked to sleep and would only do short naps and we would be up 10 times at least each time. We didn’t have any time to ourselves, sleep deprived and didn’t know how to change Orla’s sleep. A friend recommended Lynsey and our first phone call Lynsey said “Orla will nap longer and sleep through the night” after a secret giggle thinking that this will NEVER happen, we decided to give it a go - WOW Orla now has 2 naps consistently, and sleeps through the night. I can’t believe we didn’t do this sooner!!! Lynsey is fabulous, the plan is structured, helpful and allows you to grow in confidence. We now can plan evenings out (minus COVID) and have a babysitter over with confidence that Orla will sleep. We are forever great full and any sleep deprived, brain fogged parents out there ...... I urge you to book Lynsey. Totally worth every Penny. Thank you again 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 x (26/11/20)
there really is a way to work smarter and not just harder. Seeing the development your little baby can achieve in such a short space of time is truly mind blowing.
What can I say. Working with Lynsey has been nothing short of transformational. My wife and I have 7 month old twin girls and like most new parents it can be so easy to introduce some habits and bedtime routines that you think are best for baby. Our twins would then often wake quite a lot at night and struggle with daytime naps. For dads you think you might just have to roll up the sleeves and chip in as much as is needed but there really is a way to work smarter and not just harder. We did a two week program with Lynsey and from that, both our girls sleep independently, no fuss at bedtime, no need for soothers or other sleeping aids and just seeing the development your little baby can achieve in such a short space of time is truely mind blowing. Lynsey was a fantastic support and gave us the courage to stick with the plan. End result is the girls sleep sooo well and because we’re both well rested, it means we have more energy for the girls during the day. I would encourage anyone who even half thinks they may benefit, to go reach out to Lynsey. You won’t be disappointed. (5/3/21)
The impact of it has been immeasurable
I would highly recommend Lynsey Mannion who's support worked wonders. After struggling with our daughters sleep for months along with the difficulties of the various lockdowns it felt like we needed Mary Poppins to appear! Lynsey really delivered on all fronts. The impact of it has been immeasurable and we now have much more confidence going forward. Lynsey puts you at ease and is a lovely person. We needed a clear plan that we could commit to together and it did exactly that. The attention to detail provided is superb along with tips for post the course. The timing of information and positive support were greatly appreciated. (30/3/21)
It is the best thing we have done and it has drastically improved the happiness of our little one
For those of you reading the reviews for reassurance on whether to enlist Lynsey’s services; do it, it is the best thing we have done and it has drastically improved the happiness of our little one, and brought the fun back into our relationship. We now get between 10-11 hours sleep a night, instead of 2! However, I have to admit that when might wife said she was paying for a sleep consultant, I was about as sceptical as you would be if someone said it was “DFS’ last sofa sale”. I thought it would be a waste of money and that babies were babies - some were just bad sleepers. I was wrong, so wrong in fact, that I couldn’t even find a funny analogy for how wrong - perhaps whoever though the whole President Trump thing was a good idea. What Lynsey did was small subtle changes, done in the correct order at the right time. It didn’t feel like anything major and our little one certainly didn’t seem to care, but the effect was profound. She sleeps!! We now have evenings catching up on box-sets with a glass of wine, knowing we won’t need to feed till 6am earliest. We can relax knowing we get a good few hours back to tidy up from the day time. And, importantly, we get time back as a couple to have our own cuddles again. Lynsey is a superstar. (05/08/19)
Alexander has been transformed - his mood, attention span, behaviour are unrecognisable
I wanted you to know how much all of our lives have changed (for the better) since the sleep therapy. Alexander has been transformed - his mood, attention span, behaviour are unrecognisable from the end of last year/ beginning of this year. And it’s not just us noticing it - his pre-school carers have nothing but good things to say about his time with them - he is so much more patient and willing to engage with activities such as writing…. You know all of this of course, but it just goes to show the importance of sleep. We follow the routine you established for us and it has just become “the way we do things now” - very little if any push back from Alexander. Thanks again for you help and support - it has truly made such a difference to our lives. 21/2/23
It's been a game changer to us.
Prior to starting the sleep training course with Lynsey our twin girls would wake numerous times through the night demanding bottles and their soothers to be put back in. Also nap times were a nightmare, they would not nap without us in bed with them and their naps could last only 20 mins!! From the very first night of sleep training that all changed, they slept 11 hours without having to get up and now nap twice a day for up to 2 hours. It's been a game changer to us. Lynsey was brilliant from start to finish, providing support and answering questions whenever needed. Before partaking on the sleep training course I was a little dubious as to whether it would work. If you are like me and not sure please don't give it another second thought - SIGN UP. (15/09/18)
From the second night she has slept in her own cot for 11 - 12 hours
My 9 month old daughter would not sleep in her cot and bed shared with me constantly. From the second night on the programme she has slept in her own cot for 11 - 12 hours every night since. (03/10/17)
It's has been amazing and a life changer
We have just finished the sleep training course with our 8 month old and it has been amazing and a life changer. It’s the first time I have had a full nights sleep since before birth, and I have also got my baby napping in her cot in the day too. My baby previously would co sleep and feed about 5 times through the night, and would have to be rocked in the day or taken out in a pram to have a nap. At the same time I also finished breastfeeding and the two together coincided perfectly. It is just great to have Lynsey there to give you the tools and the confidence to sleep train your baby. I would highly recommend Lynsey. (03/05/18)
We have just finished this course and are amazed with how well this has worked
We have just finished this course and are amazed with how well this has worked. Our son, Jamie, is now 18 months and would take hours to get to bed on a night, even with cuddling him to sleep and then be up several times over night. With another baby on the way we needed to do something so were so happy when we won a voucher for this course. We were unsure going into this but Jamie is now going to sleep happily on his own in his cot and sleeping through the night. He’s also having one 3 hour nap in the day and is so much happier as he’s not spending most of the day grumpy and tired. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone in need or more sleep! (06/6/18)
Without a doubt the best thing I have ever done, it has transformed all of our lives, relationships & most importantly Oliver!
I hadn’t had a full nights sleep for 11months, my son (second child) Oliver was the most inconsistent baby you could imagine- the opposite to his big sister & I got to the point where I was exhausted both physically & mentally, he could barely be left with anyone other than me or his dad because he was always out of sorts & very clingy...then we started his sleep training, without a doubt the best thing I have ever done, it has transformed all of our lives, relationships & most importantly Oliver! I am frustrated we didn’t do this early! I think especially when you are a second, third, forth, etc time mum you think ‘you know what your doing’ but each child is different & I wasn’t ashamed to admit I needed help! Lynsey has been amazing!!!! From waking a minimum of 3 times a night for feeds & the rest & having rubbish naps he consistently sleeps a solid 12hours at night & naps for 3hours a day, his eating & routine are. (31/7/18)
All I can say is life changing after the first night. We couldn't have survived without u xxxx
We hired Lyndsey to help us sleep train our twin girls who are 10 months old. neither would self sooth, we're demanding bottles through the night, napped for 20mins at a time, dummies were our enemy. We literally were popping them back in constantly. I counted 15 times one night on top off 6 feeds :( All I can say is life changing after the first night. Don't think about it, just go for this service. The girls now sleep from 7pm to 6am. Nap like champs. No bottles and no dummies. We actually now can sleep ourselves and eat together at night. Thank you Lynsey for everything. We couldn't have survived without u xxxx (29/08/18)
It is so lovely to get a bit of time to ourselves in the evenings and everyone in the house is much more rested!
We have just finished our course - I couldn’t recommend Lynsey more highly!! Previously, Martha, 7 months, was waking up several times a night and would never nap in her cot. Now she is enjoying 2 lovely naps a day and sleeps through the night. It is so lovely to get a bit of time to ourselves in the evenings and everyone in the house is much more rested! (05/10/18)
Sophie has made huge steps in her development which we are convinced is down to sleeping well
We have just finished this course and can honestly say it’s changed our lives. Sophie, who is nine months, was fed or rocked to sleep for naps and at bedtime. She would wake during the night at least once, often four or five times, only returning to sleep if we rocked or fed her. After the first night she slept until 06:10 and subsequently has slept through the night. Best of all there has been no leaving her to cry without comfort and she is also taking regular naps during the day. Sophie has made huge steps in her development which we are convinced is down to sleeping well. Sophie is happier, more engaged with the world around her and has parents who are not utterly exhausted! Lynsey has been amazing throughout, answering all our questions thoroughly and supporting us along the way. (10/10/18)
We have are evenings back. We are relaxed. Lynsey has given us the tools to support our babies to be happy and content in their cots. Our entire family can't thank her enough
If you are exhausted and have a baby who is not sleeping and you want a gentle, supportive way to help your baby to learn to sleep, then please contact Flutterby. Having been completely sleep deprived for almost a year and coming out the other side, I want everyone to know how much better it can be. I have just finished a course with flutterby sleep consultancy and it has benefited every aspect of our family life. my twin girls are 10 months and both my husband and I were getting about 4 hours sleep a night. After 10 months of little and broken sleep we had finally reached our limit. Family life just wasn't that enjoyable, we were just surviving to get through each day. Evening times were stressful and bed times were dragged out for hours as I would run up and down the stairs to breastfeed a baby, put a dummy in or rock to sleep. That first night of the programme, was amazing, the girls went to sleep without much fuss. No dummies, no feeding to sleep, no white noise, no rocking back to sleep every 20mins. We have are evenings back. We are relaxed. I enjoy spending time with my babies and 3 year old, I have energy for them. Lynsey has given us the tools to support our babies to be happy and content in their cots. Lynsey has been so supportive during this whole process, a real life line. She really is a sleep guru and our entire family can't thank her enough. (13/10/18)
We met lynsey and everything changed! Nighttime is no longer something we dread
We’ve just finished our course with Lynsey and we’re just blown away by the results! Our little boy is now 8 months old and has waking 5+ times in the night since birth, we were totally exhausted and overwhelmed with what else we could do to try get some sleep. Then we met lynsey and everything changed! Nighttime is no longer something we dread, it’s a chance for us to relax knowing everyone is getting the sleep they need! We couldn’t recommend Lynsey highly enough! (30/10/18)
He now sleeps through the night and has a napping routine in the day which works for all of us, his development is thriving and is so much happier
After trying several different methods to get my 8 month old to sleep through the night, I was reluctant to try another program. I put my trust in Lynsey and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made! He now sleeps through the night and has a napping routine in the day which works for all of us, his development is thriving and is so much happier. Not to mention mummy and daddy have our lives back after months of no sleep! Thank you Lynsey for teaching us skills for life. (28/11/18)
We now have a much happier and well rested household
I highly recommend Lynsey! Our 9 month old was waking up several times a night needing her dummy and having half an hour naps throughout the day and with Lynsey’s help, she is now sleeping 7-7 without a dummy and having lots more rest and longer naps during the day! We now have a much happier and well rested household and couldn’t thank her enough. (15/1/19)
I thought I had a happy baby before but she has come on leaps and bounds now she is getting the sleep she needs
’When we first contacted Lynsey our little girl (then 5.5 months) was waking 3-4x per night and I was exhausted. She had a very strong feed to sleep association and her napping was terrible/non-existent. I was so tired, I was stuck in a cycle of just getting through every day, too tired to research or change anything. Then I contacted Lynsey. From the first phone call, I just knew she would be able to help us as she was ‘my type of person.’ Our little girl needed to learn some independent sleep skills and Lynsey set up a very thorough and logical plan to get us there. We felt fully supported through the process and it wasn’t as bad as I imagined. Since embarking on the plan, we only feed our daughter once in the night (which was the aim) we put her down for all sleeps awake and her naps have improved too! I thought I had a happy baby before but she has come on leaps and bounds now she is getting the sleep she needs. We’ve had a few challenges since making our sleep changes such as a cold and also dropping the afternoon nap but Lynsey has been really supportive and helped us get back on track. Could not recommend Lynsey enough. ( 25/01/19)
We now have FULL NIGHTS SLEEP each night and that is priceless!!
Lynsey has been amazing!! From the off she was so calm and friendly and put us at ease. She listened to our issues that we had with our 10 month old daughters sleep and created a plan bespoke to those and to Katie herself. She explained it step by step and was very honest about the obstacles we may encounter and that it would be tough but worth it. And my goodness was she right!! After a tough first night, Katie slept through the second and third night and we thought we had cracked it straight away. However, Lynsey warmed us Katie may just throw us a curve ball and she really did!! The rest of that first week was really tough I’m not going to lie. Katie really tested us and wanted to make sure that this new routine was for keeps - BUT we kept to the plan and after much guidance and reassurance from Lynsey it all just clicked and Katie has now slept a full 11 to 12 hours per night for the last two weeks. We still have things to tweek and things to learn along the way but we have come so far from where we were a month ago and after previously being up every couple of hours or do in the night we now have FULL NIGHTS SLEEP each night and that is priceless!! We now have a happy little baby as well as a rested and happy mummy, daddy and big sister and we honestly can’t thank Lynsey enough and can’t recommend her any more highly xxxxxxx A happy baby Katie now xxxxx (18/04/19)
Nursery have commented on how cheerful and bubbly she now is. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier
Lynsey is an absolute expert when it comes to all things sleep, specifically, getting my 19 month old breastfed baby who had never slept through the night to sleep through within TWO NIGHTS. I literally could not believe it! This is probably the best money I have ever spent. I now have enough energy to put into spending time with her in the day, and her nursery have commented on how cheerful and bubbly she now is. My only regret is that I didn't do it earlier. Lynsey, you are AMAZING, thank you for all your help and support at every step along the path. (19/5/20)
I was sceptical! I read the reviews on this page, and actually thought no way! They can’t be real! But now I’m on the other side-they really are!
I came across Lynsey’s page after spending another evening searching google desperately for help with getting my baby to sleep! I was at my Whitt’s end! My 9 month old was waking hourly all night long , sometimes 2/3 times an hour! Had a dummy constantly and was still having at least 2 milk feeds a night. After contacting Lynsey , we spent a good 45 minutes talking about my expectations and to hear someone tell me it didn’t have to be like this was music to my ears - although I was still super sceptical! I read the reviews on this page, and actually thought no way! They can’t be real! But now I’m on the other side-they really are! I won’t say it’s easy because it’s not but it’s most definitely worth it! I’ve now got a baby who has proper naps in the day, no dummy , no night time feeds and sleeps all night long!! I really feel like I’ve got my life back and can spend some well needed time with my 7 year old. Lynsey is honestly a miracle worker, so supportive and really gets it! Emails calls and texts regularly, she couldn’t have come at a better time and I’ll be forever grateful for her help and support! (13/05/19)
We were completely broken. I only wish we had been introduced to Lynsey sooner. It feels like getting our life back again
With Lynsey's support we have managed to get our 2 year old to sleep through the night, our eldest son was also a terrible sleeper, so for 5 years we have been extremely sleep deprived. I often hear of young kids waking multiple times a night, but our youngest use to be wide awake for blocks of 3-4 hours every night, we were completely broken. I only wish we had been introduced to Lynsey sooner. It feels like getting our life back again and we can't thank her enough for being so calm, encouraging and full of useful advice. (15/05/19)
We couldn’t believe how quickly things changed. Toby was happier and more content and began to really get into weaning which had been slow and fractious from the start.
We contacted Lynsey about our troublesome 8 month old who still woke three times a night to feed and only ever had 30 minute cat naps throughout the day! We needed to do something but I did not have the energy! Lynsey was so supportive and honest about possible challenges or set backs along the way which meant we went into our two weeks feeling well informed and prepared for anything Toby would throw at us! Well, he slept through from the 3rd night - 11 hours!!!! And from day one, had 2 hour naps!! We couldn’t believe how quickly things changed. Toby was happier and more content and began to really get into weaning which had been slow and fractious from the start. The whole household is now well rested and I can enjoy the rest of my maternity leave with both my boys without feeling like a zombie! This was the best thing we could have done for Toby and our family and Lynsey was so lovely. What I liked about Lynsey’s ‘programme’ is that it is bespoke to your child and instead of being a ‘sleep training’ approach is more about giving your child the opportunity to find their own way to sleep and it works!!! And quickly!! Thank you so much Lynsey xx (31/5/19)
Lynsey has been amazing, supportive, and ultimately changed everything for us
When we asked Lynsey for help with our son Spencer we were at the end of our tether. He was 20 months old and still screaming the house down for hours through the night. Bad night after bad night meant we were also struggling to cope at work. Lynsey has been amazing, supportive, and ultimately changed everything for us. Spencer was a tough nut to crack but she never gave up and with her help neither did we! We highly recommend Flutterby Sleep Therapy, we wish we had done it sooner!! (09/6/19)
All I can say is she is an angel!!
We have just finished 2 weeks following Lynsey’s every word to help our 10 month old sleep and all I can say is she is an angel!! We have spent 10 months heavily sleep deprived and read far too many books and programmes that have not made any difference but she had our daughter sleeping through the night in 3 days! Our lives have been transformed and without any pain or suffering! Thank you so much for your calm, efficient and very caring service, we would recommend you anytime! (5/08/19)
This experience with Lynsey has literally changed mine and my little ones life
This experience with Lynsey has literally changed mine and my little ones life. I was very worried at first as Aiyla was so reliant on me to help her fall asleep,with constant feeds through the night and being rocked. All I can say is I am so glad I took that leap of faith-Lynsey made me feel so reassured and I began to see HUGE changes in Aiyla even from Night one of the sleep training! Thank you so much for all your advice and support Lynsey. Its been amazing! If you are reading this review and are unsure about starting sleep training I would say it will be honestly be one of the best thing you can invest in- I would DEFINATELY recommend working with Lynsey on any sleep issues you might have❤(26/8/20)
The best thing we have done for both ourselves and our daughter has been to put our trust in flutterby sleep consultancy, our quality of life has improved dramatically
Lynsey has the perfect balance of professionalism and warmth, communications have been so easy! The best thing we have done for both ourselves and our daughter has been to put our trust in flutterby sleep consultancy, our quality of life has improved dramatically now our daughter has learned to sleep! I can’t give a big enough heartfelt thanks to Lynsey for all of her guidance and understanding. For anyone who is struggling - this is the answer! (19/9/19)
Having Lynsey there to offer support and encouragement was priceless and gave us a lot of confidence
Before working with Lynsey, Noah would take a maximum of an hour in naps for the whole day, sometimes even much less. At night we still had a big wakening in the middle for approx two hours. Then Lynsey came along and all of this transformed so much for the better for all of us. Noah now naps between 2 and 3 hours during the day and is well on his way to sleeping the nights through. Lynsey’s plan is easy to follow and having Lynsey there to offer support and encouragement was priceless and gave us a lot of confidence when going through this journey. Thank you Lynsey from the three of us. (23/10/19)
We figured we had nothing to lose as she couldn't make things worse! In fact, she made them better than we ever dared hope.
Working with Lynsey has changed our lives, and that isn't hyperbole! We signed up as a last resort, after over a year of broken sleep, peaking at hourly wake ups and getting up for the day at 4.30am, with naps only in a moving Pram. We figured we had nothing to lose as she couldn't make things worse! In fact, she made them better than we ever dared hope. Our baby has slept through the night since night 2 of the plan (one month and counting). He naps in his cot (or travel cot, wherever he is!) which he had NEVER done before. Lynsey is so warm, knowledgeable and supportive. She replied to all emails really promptly with such encouragement, and gave us confidence in our parenting abilities. I feel I should stress, the process really wasn't traumatic at all, for either us or the baby, as I had feared it might be. We didn't leave him until he was ready - and he clearly sends us away now so he can fall asleep! We are all so much happier. This was the best thing we have done for our family. Thank you, Lynsey! (15/12/19)
My husband said he couldn't understand why we waited for 16 months to do this
Having heard horror stories from other parents, I was very reluctant about using a sleep consultant... Lynsey came as a personal recommendation and the fact that I was getting desperate made me take that first step. My son has never been a good sleeper since he was born so we have had him in our bed since he was little. As he grew older, his sleep got worse (woke up constantly throughout the night) and can only fall asleep by tugging my hair, which was kind of cute at first until he got strong and I was losing my hair in chunks... Lynsey was thorough in gathering information to ensure the plan works for both the child and the parents. She managed our expectations well so we knew what was going to happen and how to deal with the situation when it happened. Within a week of our sleep training course, there was a markable difference in my son's sleeping behaviour! We no longer needed to get up multiple times a night and we can actually enjoy the evening as a couple, oh and most importantly, he is happily sleeping by himself in a different room. My husband said he couldn't understand why we waited for 16 months to do this... If you are sleep deprived or losing hair like I was, don't wait, just give Lynsey a shout!!! (24/12/19)
I have a well rested baby who can sleep independently without any fuss. This is absolutely priceless!
Since signing up for the sleep training with Lynsey, I have a well rested baby who can sleep independently without any fuss. This is absolutely priceless! The whole family has benefited in a big way. Lynsey was kind and professional throughout, and I highly recommend giving her a call if you're in any way curious and struggling with your baby's sleep. (20/3/20)
I am SO glad we sorted out Reuben’s sleep before we all ended up being cooped up here 24/7!
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help. I am SO glad we sorted out Reuben’s sleep before we all ended up being cooped up here 24/7! He slept beautifully at Center Parcs - no upset at all at bed or nap times despite the change in sleep environment, and only one extra wake up at night (aside from for feeds). He even treated us to some lie ins and long naps :) You were so responsive and containing and informative throughout the whole time and your written resources are very helpful - thank you thank you thank you. I am just so glad we took the plunge. We are all a lot of happier for it and I’m now finally sleeping through too! (25/03/20)
the transformation was incredible! We saw significant results after the first night. We now have a much happier baby and can’t ask for more.
We contacted Lynsey for help with our 10 month old. He struggled to go to sleep by himself and when he did drop off, it wasn’t long before he’d be very restless and wake again. This cycle would often repeat numerous times before he finally settled down for the night. By 2-3am he’d be awake again and the only thing that worked initially was to co-sleep we us (something we’d said we’d never do, but needs must!). As he was getting older, this just wasn’t practical as none of us were getting the sleep we all needed. He was also a chronic short napper and relied on a dummy to go to sleep and this was another issue we wanted to address. After completing the plan with Lynsey he can now happily sleep independently and through the night. He has a much more predictable routine & sleep pattern - the transformation was incredible! We saw significant results after the first night most especially, saying “bye bye” to the dummy! We can’t thank Lynsey enough. We have our evenings back and enjoy a good nights sleep 👍 If you’re considering seeking help from Lynsey my advice would be “do not hesitate”. The support we received was fantastic - professional whilst personable. The steps we needed to take were clear and straightforward, we now have a much happier baby and can’t ask for more. Thank you Lynsey! 😀 (30/04/20)

We still cannot believe the significant change in our 6 month old’s sleeping habits and mood as a result
Extremely happy with the service, Lynsey was a great support to us throughout the process. We still cannot believe the significant change in our 6 month old’s sleeping habits and mood as a result. We could see the difference after only a number of days. Highly recommended. (15/05/20)
We didn't leave a review at the time but we often say that calling you was the best thing we ever did. It has changed our lives and our experience of parenting..
It's been nine months since we used your service. We didn't leave a review at the time but we often say that calling you was the best thing we ever did. We were at the end of our tether when we contacted you when our son was eight months old. He had never slept for more than three hours, and would regularly wake eight, nine or more times per night. We were cosleeping just to survive and our son was utterly dependent on breastfeeding to settle. The sleep training was difficult, but not as hard as the attempts we made without your help. It's truly amazing that we now kiss our son "goodnight" every night now and he sleeps peacefully in his cot until morning. He has a three hour nap every day like clockwork. My husband and I often say that it was the best £300 we could possibly have spent. It has changed our lives and our experience of parenting. We questioned whether it was the right thing to do at the time as we didn't want to waste the money if it didn't work for us after a previous failed attempt and were even fearful of our baby being upset during the process, but he is so happy and genuinely seems to love going in his cot for bedtime. Lynsey made us feel confident and supported throughout the process. She was amazing! If we have any problems getting our second to sleep, I wouldn't hesitate to call Lynsey. Thank you so much.

Best thing we’ve done and not just for the boys sleep but for their development, and for ours!
We sought Lynsey’s support as recommended by other multiple parents when our identical twin boys where 11 months, and we wished we’d gone to her sooner. After nights of each parent being with each twin in separate rooms, after unsettled up and down nights we were doing our best for all of us to get any kind of sleep, and badly! They weren’t in the same room at night or for day naps as we had originally intended. Fast forward to night one, and it worked, they slept all night on their own and in the same room, their room 🙏🏻! We haven’t looked back! The boys consistently sleep all night, and when they wake they play happily in their cots, content in their room. Routine and consistency is key! With baby number three on the way, we will be applying Lynsey’s methods much sooner this time. Best thing we’ve done and not just for the boys sleep but for their development, and for ours! Highly recommend! (28/5/20)
Trust in Lynsey and her training plan and you won't regret it
We contacted Lynsey after our 7 month old son got himself into a terrible habit of constantly waking during the night and not being able to get back to sleep without us going into his room and putting the dummy back in his mouth and soothing him back to sleep. I was very reluctant to use a sleep trainer however it was the best thing we ever done, both for Eli and for ourselves! Lynsey provided great support throughout our time together and was always available for advice and encouragement. By the end of the first week we could see the results, with our baby sleeping through the night and napping much better during the day. It really is amazing the difference in such a short time. We couldn't have done it without you Lynsey, thank you. Trust in Lynsey and her training plan and you won't regret it. (10/6/20)
We decided we needed to change things but didn’t know how. Now our baby is sleeping so well and we are all so much happier!
We contacted Lynsey after a friend recommended her to us and we are so glad we did. Our baby boy who was 7 months old at the time was struggling to sleep independently. He had always struggled to sleep due to his reflux and colic when he was a younger and therefore needed one of us to rock him, as well as a dummy and white noise to fall asleep. It got to the point where he would go to sleep ok in his cot but then when he woke up he just wanted us and would not resettle in his cot. To combat the sleep deprivation we just used to bring him in our bed therefore we ended up co sleeping with him every night for a long time, which is not what we had planned. We decided we needed to change things but didn’t know how. Nothing we tried seemed to work. That’s when we contacted Lynsey. Lynsey was so lovely and devised a plan for us to follow. The first night was hard I won’t lie, but then from the second night onwards it was amazing and he slept all night in his cot! The first full nights sleep we’d had in 7 months!!! Lynsey was really supportive and was with us for 2 weeks, we are very grateful for all her help. Now our baby is sleeping so well and we are all so much happier! (08/08/20)
He is the same baby but different! All his wonderful characteristics we saw in him before seem to be shining through more than ever!
Before I start, no matter what I say, I will not be able to articulate just how amazing Lynsey is at her job and just how much our lives have changed for the better in just 2 weeks! (23/8/20) My husband and I have a gorgeous little 12 month old boy. When I say he was a poor sleeper that, quite frankly doesn't cover it. To cut a long exhausting journey short, we got to a stage where he woke anywhere between 10 and 20 times a night! Breastfed to sleep and 'slept' in our bed. We tried different sleep programs, white noise, driving, walking, breastfeeding continuously throughout naps, but nothing seemed to work. That was until a friend recommended Lynsey to us. I was more than sceptical before we spoke to Lynsey, not because I didn't think she knew what she was doing, I was sure she must do. But because my little boy seemed so determined to fight sleep and we had tried so many things to change that with no success! We were desperate at this stage and thought it was worth a try so we knew we had tried everything! This is one of the best decisions we have ever made! In the 2 weeks we had Lynsey supporting and guiding us, we have gone from being awake most of the night and driving for miles and miles around the North West during nap times to having a baby who falls asleep happily by himself, in his cot, he naps, and the best thing, he sleeps ALL NIGHT! We hadn't realised just how much the lack of sleep was affecting our baby. We thought he was coping well, he was meeting all his milestones and most of the time was a happy little boy. But since he has started sleeping through the night he has become much happier and calmer. He is the same baby but different! All his wonderful characteristics we saw in him before seem to be shining through more than ever! My husband and I have got our evenings back and we will now be able to have date nights. This would never have been possible before Lynsey came along. Knowing how much Lynsey has changed our lives I'd happily pay double for what she has done for us. Thank you isn't enough.
When someone mentioned Lynsey and how she could help us it all sounded too good to be true. Fast forward two weeks… the whole household is in a better place.
Harry wouldn’t sleep in a cot during the day, only in a pram or car. To get to sleep at night we spent at least 30mins pacing the room and rocking him and we’d be up at least twice to comfort him back off to sleep - when someone mentioned Lynsey and how she could help us it all sounded too good to be true. Fast forward two weeks and we put Harry in his bed and walk out the room as he snuggles up in his cot and goes off to sleep! He’s happier as he’s not constantly tired, we’re happier because we don’t have a whiny over tired baby and so the whole household is in a better place. All we can say is thank you so much Lynsey and anyone reading this, don’t hesitate to get in touch with her - she’s amazing! (01/09/20)
Lynsey was so friendly and professional, and provided us with really clear instructions and help, resulting in both children now going to bed with no fuss and sleeping brilliantly.
We are so pleased we chose Flutterby sleep consultancy to help with our two children, one 4 years old and the other 7 months. Lynsey was so friendly and professional, and provided us with really clear instructions and help, resulting in both children now going to bed with no fuss and sleeping brilliantly. It has given us back our evenings and made for much more enjoyable family life! (29/9/20)
It’s lovely for me to now again wake up beside my hubbie
Everyone told us when we got past the newborn stage with our twin girls and dropped night feeds we’d get more sleep which would be life changing so when that didn’t happen we were at a loss! My husband and I went from waking our little girls from night feeds to them constantly waking - one of them half an hour after we’d put her down, the other maybe an hour later and so on throughout the night! Naps were 30 minutes unless I rocked the girls back to sleep and let them sleep on me - easy with one baby but not so easy with 2! Then came Lynsey who has within 2 short weeks changed everything! It’s lovely for me to now again wake up beside my hubbie and go into the girls bedroom each morning with them having slept the full night in their own cots! The girls sleep independently and even smile when we put them down to sleep! They now nap upstairs in their cots for the first time ever! They wake up happy well rested girls! Lynsey not only knows her stuff and resolved our issues within days but she is an absolute pleasure to deal with! She is friendly, understanding, bubbly and really brought us through the process and was always there if we had queries or needed extra support! We cannot thank her enough for the changes shes made to our little family! I’d highly recommend working with Lynsey (5/3/21)
Sleep training with Lynsey has been an absolute game changer for us in terms of family life and how well we all are doing. The girls are thriving, so much more happier, engaged, curious, funny & so obviously well rested
"Our twin girls were born premature & spent weeks in NICU so upon coming home they were used to settling themselves & we thought we escaped any sleep issues. Then reflux & colic showed up and within a few weeks our girls needed to be held and / or rocked, comforted to avoid spit ups & painful wind / digestive issues. Bu the time we decided to seek a sleep consultant the girls were battling naps & bedtime, waking multiple times, increasing their night feeds, sleeping in the pram, relying on the soother & other sleep aids & we were exhausted and dreaded every evening. From the first phone call with Lynsey I felt she completely understood not only our day to day challenges but also our concerns & fears about sleep training itself but from our discussion I was happy to fire ahead. By night two, my twin Louisa was sleeping through without ANY wake ups, by night four her sister also slept through. Myself & my husband were seriously pinching ourselves & waiting for the girls to return to default. 4 weeks later they are still sleeping so well for naps & bedtime with no issues. Sleep training with Lynsey has been an absolute game changer for us in terms of family life and how well we all are doing. The girls are thriving, so much more happier, engaged, curious, funny & so obviously well rested. Lynsey has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, always listened to any concerns, open, efficient, timely with her responses & guidance and ensured we had a good handle on it to allow us to navigate the girls sleep going forward. We can’t thank her enough, now I can actually enjoy the rest of my maternity leave and my husband looks forward to finishing work & spending time with the twins & putting them to bed. In addition we can actually look forward to any future staycations without fretting about how or if the girls will sleep. We cannot recommend Lynsey high enough!!!" (28/3/21)
Lynsey was a constant source of support and positivity
Our son was waking up every hour or more during the night and always seemed to resist sleep during the day no matter how much we helped him. But by the time we finished working with Lynsey he was sleeping through the night and going to sleep much more easily in the daytime - we never would have believed that was even possible, but with Lynsey's expertise we were able to support him to get the right amount of sleep when he needed it. It was hard going, but there's no way we would be where we are now without Lynsey, she was a constant source of support and positivity as she guided us through it all. (8/8/21)
We now have a baby who is popped into his cot at 8pm and sleeps through until 6.30am with zero fuss or tears.
It was taking an hour to an hour and a half to feed my 11 month old to sleep, at least two wakings in the night to be fed back to sleep, not to mention the 5am wakings and baby coming into bed with us. Far from ideal, especially when I have a three year old to contend with too! Lynsey from the outset was reassuring, provided us with a solid plan of action and guided us throughout the two weeks, promptly and thoroughly. She provided me with encouragement and the resolve to put the plan into action... I honestly could not have made the changes without Lynsey's guiding hand. We now have a baby who is popped into his cot at 8pm and sleeps through until 6.30am with zero fuss or tears. We have come so far in such a short period of time!! Lynsey, thank you SO SO much!! Forever grateful. (9/8/21)
If you are debating whether to use Lynsey is, DO IT!
First thing I will say is, if you are debating whether to use Lynsey is, DO IT! She and her programme have given us back our sanity, our life and sleep!!! We have a 2-year-old boy and twin boys who are currently 10 months old and who now (thanks to Lynsey’s programme) sleep soundly through the night. After the 15-minute chat with Lynsey I spoke to my husband who, to say the least, was extremely sceptical but we were at our wits end, sleep was non-existent with the twins, so we went for it and it was literally the best money we have ever spent!!!! Our bedtime routine looks like this: Bring all boys up, do teeth, pj’s, sleepsuits, story, into bed, light off, night night, leave room, boys go asleep within a few mins, no crying!!! It still amazes me.........we wake them at 7am!!!!!!! Boys have come on leap and bounds with all the sleep.....all the new hair too, its just brilliant!!! (15/9/21)
Utterly changed my life! I wish I'd done it months ago!
"Utterly changed my life! I just kept thinking, 'he'll sleep better once he's on solids...when he's crawling... when he's walking...' but he got worse and worse and with my return to work date looming I finally took the plunge and rang Linsey. We finally have our evenings back and a baby who sleeps through within a few days of starting our work with her. I wish I'd done it months ago!" (19/9/21)
I would 100% recommend Lynsey to help with improving your little one's sleep.
"I would 100% recommend Lynsey to help with improving your little one's sleep. She helped us every step of the way with a tailored made plan. Our little baby now sleeps happily through the night with Lynsey's help. She also provides a wealth of information to help if any further problems arise in the future. My partner and I feel totally confident and informed about our baby's sleep needs. Thank you so much Lynsey!" (27/2/22)
Lynsey is just the best - friendly, supportive and very knowledgeable.
"At first it seems impossible but it works! Lynsey is just the best - friendly, supportive and very knowledgeable. In just two weeks Lynsey helped us teach our daughter to sleep independently after months of me feeding and rocking her to sleep for hours and at multiple times during the night. There are so many benefits to Lynsey’s work that I cannot list them all here but some that stood out for us were - a calmer baby, increased solid intake, Dad able to put baby down for nap/bedtime (not just Mum), and time as a couple in the evenings again. Thank you Lynsey for your amazing work. For anyone considering working with Lynsey, don’t doubt it, do it. It’s lifechanging." (28/2/22)
I shouldn’t have waited!!! The transformation was incredible and it only took a few days!
"Lynsey was recommended to us but it still took me a few months to decide to go ahead. I shouldn’t have waited!!! On night 3 my 17 month old slept through the night and has ever since. Up until working with Lynsey, I’d been feeding my little one to sleep. It took a long time for her to go to sleep and she would wake up once or twice in the night. Something needed to change and I knew that we wouldn’t be able to do so without help. Lynsey gave us clear, straightforward advice and a plan specific to our circumstances. Lynsey was so responsive during the 2 weeks we worked with her and quickly answered my numerous questions. We now have a little girl who easily goes to sleep, sleeps through the night and naps in her cot during the day. The transformation was incredible and it only took a few days! Lynsey is professional but very personable and has a wealth of experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Lynsey’s fabulous support to anyone!" (08/03/22)
Hiring Lynsey to help us was the best investment I have ever made. I would 1000% recommend.
“Hiring Lynsey to help us was the best investment I have ever made. My little boy was 7 months old and had been waking ever 45 mins to 1h30min every night since he was born. From the first night with Lynsey there was a dramatic improvement and within a few days, Lynsey had him sleeping through the night! I literally couldn't believe it. Not only this, but my husband could now help with nap and sleep time, my son was breastfeeding much better than he ever did during the day and I felt so much calmer and better, knowing that he would go to bed without me having to run up and down to him every 10 minutes and all through the night. I would 1000% recommend.” (17/03/22)
AMAZING! I can’t thank Lynsey enough. She was understanding, patient, and made us feel supported every step of the way
"Lynsey’s programme has literally changed our lives. I contacted Lynsey after 18 months of broken sleep…every night. I was nervous and not even sure that I was ready to start sleep training but I just knew that something had to change. We started and literally within 2 nights things were improving massively and by the end of week 1, my little boy was sleeping for 11 hours at night and napping in his cot for 1-1.5 hours a day. My little one has never napped in his cot (except on rare occasions) and instead would only nap on me which made it very difficult not only for me but my other son who’s 3 years old. Since the training our whole family are benefiting. I’m happier, more patient and fun because I’m not constantly exhausted. My little one is happier and seems to be learning so much more because because he’s more rested. My other little boy is happier because he gets one to one mummy time when my youngest naps and my husband is happier because he’s more rested. AMAZING! I can’t thank Lynsey enough. She was understanding, patient, and made us feel supported every step of the way. I would recommend Lynsey’s programme to anyone struggling with sleep deprivation." (01/07/22)
by night three he was sleeping through….no more bottle…no more dummy and no more unhappy baby and exhausted parents!
Our beautiful boy had gone from a happy baby who slept really well to changing suddenly over night and no longer being a contented sleeper. It would sometimes take between 2-3 hours for him to settle at night and when he woke for a bottle in the night we would have to resort to the pram at 2 or 3am, absolutely exhausted, roaming the streets until he went back to sleep! This went on for a few months when we decided we had to do something and soon! We heard about Lynsey through a friend who had told us she had totally changed their lives so we got in touch! Lynsey was amazing from start to finish and everything she told us and advised us on totally made sense as to why Arthur was no longer sleeping well! After night one we noticed a massive difference and by night three he was sleeping through….no more bottle…no more dummy and no more unhappy baby and exhausted parents! His daytime naps were no longer a challenge either! Not only does he sleep perfectly he also eats better and enjoys his awake times so much more after getting better sleep! Two weeks later we now have the confidence to know Arthur is a contented sleeper with the skills to go to sleep all on his own and perfectly happy, this goes for nap times too! Total transformation in so little time! The whole process was gentle and not at all scary as I thought it may be. Lynsey is amazing and we can’t recommend her enough! (04/08/22)

Freddie is thriving and his little character has really come to life.
"Before working with Lynsey we were all living in a total sleep deprivation haze. For 2 months straight we didn't get more than 2 hours sleep overnight, Freddie was sleeping on us for naps and would only transfer to his crib for short power naps. Both he and I were exhausted and constantly cranky. We were at out whit's end! Lynsey gave us the tools to get Freddie sleeping independently and we haven't looked back since. The comprehensive individualised plan, regular phone calls and the live sleep log helped the changes come quickly and minimised the upset for us all. Lynsey was unbelievably patient with us and coaxed us into making the right changes for Freddie. We now have a child who likes sleeping! He sleeps in his own room, in his own cot and is well able to have long naps and good stretches overnight. Now that we've caught up on the lack of sleep the whole family are back to enjoying life. Freddie is thriving and his little character has really come to life. Trust me when I say the short term work in making the changes and sticking with them is so worth it, it quite literally has changed our lives! Thank you Lynsey!!" 25/11/22
Practical, easily implementable, and tried and tested - transformational!
"We’re writing this less than 3 weeks since we started the programme with Lynsey - and there is only one word for it - transformational! The dysfunctional sleep routine we had gotten into with our little boy (3.5 years old) meant no one was getting a good night’s sleep, resulting in all the knock-on effects of being sleep deprived. Lynsey’s straightforward, practical approach, coupled with her friendly, “always here to help” way of working was exactly what we needed, albeit we were apprehensive that we would get results so quickly. However, within 2 weeks of starting our little boy was back sleeping in his own bed, and sleeping through the night - something we could not have believed possible. If you are looking for help - practical, easily implementable, and tried and tested help, look no further than Lynsey - like I said, it’s been transformational. Thank you Lynsey." 26/1/23
This is by far the most helpful thing we have done since our daughter was born
"I had read every book on sleep to the point where I didn’t know what to think anymore. I was sceptical that something like this could work and I was worried I wouldn’t be responding to my daughter needs if I tried sleep training. I was SO wrong. Lynsey saved my sanity. With Lynsey’s help within a few days my daughter was sleeping through the night, had night weaned herself and was taking longer naps without needing to be fed or taken out in the pram. My partner could take over the bedtime routine and settle her down for the night. We had thought she was a low sleep need baby, it turns out she is a high sleep need baby and the lack of sleep hadn’t just been hard on us but more importantly not good for her either. Lynsey helped us to turn everything around. Now I am enjoying my maternity leave again, not dreading the return to work anymore and my energy levels are recovering after 8 months of little sleep. My daughter is happy, smiley, eating more solids and we can do more together in the day now we both have more energy! Thank you Lynsey. This is by far the most helpful thing we have done since our daughter was born and one of the best parenting decisions we’ve made so far. If there is anyone out there wondering whether to give it a go I would say stop hesitating, I wish we’d done it sooner!" 21/2/23
