A Word From Our Clients

Carly Leonhardt, London ON:

With Hali’s assistance and guidance, we had huge success with our 7month old daughter. She was waking sometimes up to 15 times within the first few hours of sleep. She would only nap in her swing and we were stuck tip toeing around our house. The first night she slept in her own room and for 10 hours straight. After a month she sleeps with only one wake up to nurse, and naps in her crib! We have our house back to ourselves and our marriage has much less stress! Well worth it all!! Thank you again Hali!

Stacey Nash, London ON:

With the help of Hali, my son went from being up several times a night to sleeping from 7:30-7:30 in under a month (with huge improvement in less than a week). She spoke with us and gave us a plan we were comfortable with and confident in, and provided encouragement when problems arise! I’d done lots of reading and tried a few things, but always doubted myself, which meant my efforts to get my son to sleep better were never successful. Hali’s very reasonable fee was a very small price to pay for our first good night’s rest in over a year!

Kerri D’Ambrosio, London ON:

Hali has been such a wonderful help to us! We recently came to her needing help with our three year old daughter who was tough to get to sleep and woke up several times a night. With her help she is now easy to put to bed and is sleeping in much longer stretches. Hali was wonderful to work with and very understanding of our busy family life. She went above and beyond the time I had payed her for. She stuck it out with us until the problem was fixed. Thanks to her we are now all much happier and getting through the day with ease!

Jody Knight, London ON:

We first started working with Hali when our son, Colin, was 5.5 months old. He was waking up 4-5 times a night and needed to be nursed or rocked back to sleep. He was nursing to sleep for bedtime and naps as well. Deep down I knew he needed some sleep coaching, but with him being our last baby I kept delaying it.

After speaking with Hali on the phone, I was so confident in her and what she was going to do to help Colin get on the road to healthy sleep! She was understanding, caring and listened to my concerns. She also didn’t push us to cut out night feedings completely. She made us a easy to follow plan and tailored it exactly to Colin’s personality and what we were comfortable with.

After implementing the plan, it only took a couple of nights and Colin was putting him self to sleep with no crying at all! He would also put himself back to sleep after a nursing session during the night. As for naps, he did well with that too!

Hali was there for us every step of the way. We highly recommend her! Our whole family is happier and much more rested ! Thank you Hali!

Christie Nash, Peterborough ON:

In the spring of 2016 my husband and I were at our wits end. With a five and two-year old running the show, our bedtime routine had become a dreaded game of whack-a-mole. Each night we would spend up to two hours trying to settle our kids to sleep. It’s not like we hadn’t tried everything we had read about healthy sleep habits, but these little needs and wants from the kids began to stretch out longer and longer each night. Having heard about Hali’s baby whisperer ways, we called for a consult.

With patience, she listened to our sleeping woes, with compassion she asked questions that illuminated both the issues and joys of our current routines and strategies, and with humour and love she presented us with a plan.

Her plan was genius! Taking elements of our schedule and routine that made sense, she suggested some small, simple, and fun ideas that both made sense and that integrated seamlessly into what we were already doing. She took the time to go over this with us and thoroughly explain why she was making these suggestions.

We agreed to work with the plan. I kid you not, by the third night our kids were asleep within half an hour of us putting them down, without getting out of their bed once. We had our nights back! And our kids slept through the night and seemed well-rested the next morning. It was truly amazing.

Over the summer with the sun going down later, vacations and more social time in the evenings, inevitably we got off track with the schedules and our clever children took advantage of the situation. In mid- August, we re-visited the plan and again within 2 nights we were back on track.

Hali, we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to work with us and for sharing your wisdom. You have transformed more than just our bedtime routine… with our evenings back we have the time to do the things that energize us and allow us to be better parents and people.

Lindsay, London ON:

I contacted Hali when my daughter was about 13 months old.  On a good night, she would wake every 3-4 hours and insist on being nursed.  I thought it was too late and that this is what my sleep would be like for years to come.  After 3 nights on Hali’s sleep plan, she was sleeping 12 uninterrupted hours and going to bed on her own!  Weeks later we still have a 12-hour/night sleeper!  If I didn’t see it with my own eyes I never would have believed it possible.

Hali is so patient and takes the time to find what works specifically for your family, within your comfort levels.  She is extremely knowledgeable and truly cares about the families she is helping.  I can’t thank her enough for what she has done for our family.  The atmosphere in our household and my relationship with my children is so different now that we are sleeping.  My only regret is that I didn’t call Hali sooner!

Cheryl, London ON:

Just wanted to give a shoutout to Hali and thank her again for teaching my husband and I some amazing tips to get our 16 month old daughter to sleep like a champ! We now have the tools we need to get her to sleep at least 12 hours a night-straight! If we wander off course due to life’s inevitable distractions, it’s comforting to know what we have to do to get her back on schedule.

I would very much recommend trying Sound Sleep Consulting if you need some help getting your little one to get the sleep they (and you!) need!

Laura, London ON:

Our son was a great sleeper, until we welcomed our second into the family. He struggled with bedtime and night waking.

Hali helped us understand the root causes behind his sleep struggles and gave us excellent techniques and language to use around bedtime. Within a week he was back to his great sleeping habits. Thanks Hali!!!

Heather, Brampton ON:

Working with this lovely dream worker was the absolute best thing to happen to my family. We had a boy that slept 2 hours at most in a 24 hour time frame and by the end of our time together he is now sleeping a full 7pm till 6am!!! It was such a pleasure to get to know you work with you and learn your tricks you really are a miracle worker even from 2 hours away!
Thank you for everything ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Andrea, London ON:

After our son turned 4 months old and went through a sleep regression his previous full night sleeps were a thing of the past. My husband and I struggled for 2 months with 4-5 night wakings, full of tears, frustration, and sleeplessness. Once I heard about Hali, and her services calling her and asking for help was exactly what I did. Why SUFFER when there is help!? My sons first night on his new sleep plan and he slept a solid 10 hours. He has rocked it every single night since. Few tweaks here and there and he was off to full naps during the day, and solid 10-11hrs at night. Hali was there every step of the way. She was like an angel that sends messages of support and reassurance just when you need it. I’ve heard that some people are “skeptical” or are not sure if it’s not worth the money. Let me assure you a well slept babe, and a refreshed momma is worth every cent. What is there to be skeptical about? Hali breaks down sleep science in a way that just makes you go… “Ohhhhhh… well that makes sense!” there is no hocus pocus here! Thank you Hali! Love Andrea, Will, and Lincoln xo

Stephanie, London ON:

I’ll try to keep my review as short as possible. My little peanut nursed and co-slept. It worked until it didn’t anymore. My husband and I had tried the CIO method and failed miserably. It wasn’t for us or our baby girl. After doing a considerable amount of research, I contacted Hali. She offered a free 15 min consult which turned into 35 mins. She didn’t rush me or push off questions I had during the consult. I was at a loss and sleep deprived. We agreed to hire her and she came out to our home. She provided us some amazing feedback for things that needed to change or be implemented in the nursery. She provided us with a sleep plan and held my hand every step of the way. We understood behaviours don’t change overnight but couldn’t believe in just over a week, our 7 month old who screamed and cried when not being in our bed, nursed to sleep was sleeping in her own crib without being nursed.

Hali, thank you so much for all your love and support. Best investment ever. Baby is sleeping, mama is sleeping and husband is safe, lol! Sleep = Happy Home!

I highly recommend Hali and her expertise.
