Nathalie is amazing! She understands the science behind sleep and she has a wonderful, pleasant demeanor that makes it very easy to work with her.
Nathalie gave us back our life. We consulted her after 11 months of sleep deprivation. Our 11 month old was waking up to 6-8 times per night and would only take the bottle in order to get back to sleep. My husband and I were desperate as the sleep deprivation was impacting our relationship, our ability to parent, and our jobs. Our quality of life was miserable.
It seems like Nathalie is a miracle worker, but in reality, she gives practical advice that makes sense and that works. By making the changes Nathalie recommended, our child now sleeps 12 hours per night and we are a normal, functional family again. I still cannot believe that my now 12 month old gets himself to sleep and stays asleep through the night. I am equally impressed that our son stopped needing his milk after a few days on his new sleep schedule!
This was the best decision we ever made for our family. Working with Nathalie has been such a pleasure and I will definitely recommend her services to our friends. When I think about the change she affected in our lives, I realize the help she provided us was priceless.
We highly recommend Nathalie. She is a life-changer.
I highly recommend Nathalie. We were having so much trouble with our little girl sleeping. She was waking every two hours through the night and using my breast as a pacifier. Nathalie gave us great advice which helps us a lot throughout this process. My baby now sleeps 12 hours and sometimes she wakes up once in the night, which is beyond amazing. My only regret is that we didn’t call Nathalie sooner.
The service Shining Star Sleep offers is fantastic. Nathalie is calm, incredibly knowledgable and I’m so grateful for her help! I had got into a bad habit with my two year old and was having to lie with him for a long time before he went to sleep and he continued to wake in the night, which I was finding exhausting. He also had a dummy which I was struggling to take away. Nathalie is so helpful and explains everything very carefully during a first consultation before going away to work up a bespoke sleep plan that works for you and your child. She then explains what to expect and continues to check in frequently as you implement the new sleep plan. After just one night my son’s sleep had already changed and in less than a week, he was able to get himself to sleep and sleep through the night. And I’m so pleased it has continued – it’s made a huge difference to me and the whole family. Nathalie was also very supportive but firm about the dummy and I listened to her sound advice which has meant that it was easy to take away and he hasn’t asked for it since. I can’t recommend Nathalie enough!
Hiring Nathalie as a sleep consultant for my baby was one of the best investments I’ve ever made. My little girl learned to self-soothe within three days and I never could have imagined that. It was incredible! I had read a couple of baby sleep books, and they were helpful, but the fact is that it makes all the difference to have someone to ask what you do, coach you through it and give you confidence. Nathalie has two children on her own, so I knew she understood all the little quirks and concerns. Nathalie is both assertive and caring in her approach, which is exactly what you need in a sleep consultant! Can’t recommend her highly enough, without her guidance we would’ve never achieved this!
My daughter was 10 months old, and she had to be pushed in the stroller to fall asleep during the day and she was using a dummy. Her naps were completely unplanned and random and sometime we had to push her in the stroller for up to 1 hour before falling asleep.
I spoke to Nathalie who provided me with a very clear schedule and thorough guidelines to follow for few days and she clearly laid down how to behave as a response to different reactions.
After just few days of following Nathalie’s instructions and being in constant contact with her, my daughter started having a proper nap routine and she stopped using the dummy all together.
I am extremely grateful to Nathalie for giving me the confidence to follow through and for her support throughout the changing process. Nathalie is flexible and she doesn’t apply the one method rule to all but really listens to your story and adapts her plan to your family’s habits.
We were privileged to be one of Nathalie’s first clients and found the whole experience very positive. She is super professional, driven and flexible which allowed us to get to the final goal; she was extremely supportive and responsive at all times so we never had a doubt or concern about what to do next. The plan was well outlined and structured and easy to follow. Would highly recommend her service to anyone who is struggling with their child’s sleep patterns or is generally looking to start the new baby on a healthy sleep routine and daily schedule.
