I'm too tired and depressed to type out the whole sorry tale...has anyone used a gentle/no cry/no leaving to cry sleep consultant with successful results? I see Ann Caird mentioned a lot on MN but I understand she has a long waiting list.

Thank you...

Try Andrea grace - we told her we didn't want to use CC so she came up with another plan.

Carol Grassick - amazing results and very gentle.

Millpond helped me through gradual retreat successfully when DD1 was 2yo. I think they would probably have pushed the CC had the gentle approach not worked though.

I have recently had contact with Ann Caird - and I didn't have to wait too long at all.

Sian Thomas at sleep babies was great with our two year old.

I used Ann Caird at the end of last year and she was able to fit me in within a week. Well worth calling her to see what her availability is. She is fabulous.

Ann Caird worth the wait, would have paid 10 times what we did for the miracles she performed!

Another vote for Ann Caird here. Well worth the wait, and easily the best money I've ever spent. We went from hourly waking/feeding and co-sleeping to sleeping right through in her own cot in her own room and it was (virtually) painless! Ann is lovely, and so, so patient.

I'm just marking my place as we're getting to end of tether in this house. Want to show DH the suggestions.

Another vote for Ann! She is amazing! Worth the money and we didn't have to wait long at all. As others have said she is very kind and patient.

Thank you everyone, you've made me really hopeful...we've booked a sleep consultant (one of your recommendations) and we are starting soon. Wish we'd done it months ago! Hopefully I will never need to lurk on this board again... grin

Had any joy with a sleep consultant? Just come across this thread as I'm seriously considering getting in touch with a sleep consultant after a couple of months of hell with my 23 month old. Hope you had some luck smile

Millpond are amazing. Went from 10 wakings per night to sleeping all night in 5 weeks.

Really kind people, all medical background. Caring supportive and bloody wonderful

No crying involved

Thanks just had a look at their website looks good. If there isn't any improvement by the end of this weekend i'm going to give them a bell. we had a slight improvement last night of actually getting him to sleep it only took all of two hours but there was still the 3am wake up in hysterics and couldn't calm him unless one of us slept in his room with him. joy. going to be another lucozade day

I used Nicola Watson from Child Sleep Solutions. She was really good.

Nini - cakebrew. I have just come out the other side of long term sleep deprivation, on my knees by the end of it. Like you we wanted to solve Dd's erratic sleep as gently as possible. The following thread really helped along with the 'No cry sleep solution'.

Thanks Burning will give that a read....just taken 2hrs again by which point I was passing out with hunger. Will give me something to read while I sulk in bed! Thanks again ��
