HELP & ADVICE
WE LOVE BOOKS Especially books that help children with sleep As a teacher, I'm slightly biased when I say that books are powerful learning tools for all children, no matter how old the child is. Sure, your baby may not understand all the words you are...read more

“Our baby was having terrible naps and waking multiple times overnight ”
Our baby girl started to wake up 3+ times at night. When I contacted Tori, I was texting her and crying as well. I was exhausted and needed help. On our first day of training, our little one already improved her lunch nap from twenty minutes to one hour. The first week she dropped her feeds to only two, second week to only one and on our last day of working together, she dropped the last feed on her own. Our baby girl responded to all the changes that Tori told me to do, so well, and she is now sleeping twelve hours straight! Tori helped me to teach my baby to connect her sleep cycles and now her naps are amazing and night-time sleep is a dream come true. Besides all of that, Tori is so sweet and was always there to answer my questions. My husband and I are beyond happy with how quickly Tori could help our little girl. I am kind of sad I don’t get to talk to her anymore. We will treasure you forever, Tori. Thank you! Thank you!

“Tori worked her baby magic AGAIN”
I first contacted Tori when I was at breaking point. Our five month old son, myself and my husband were not getting any quality sleep and it was impacting all of us greatly. I was very wary about sleep training as I can’t stand to hear my son cry. Tori worked with us to implement small gradual changes to build a routine for our son and create a great sleep environment. By the time it came for Tori to visit us we were able to transition from rocking/patting/bouncing our son to sleep to a very gentle sleep guidance method. Tori was very supportive of our wishes to slowly make these transitions and made sure we were comfortable and happy every step of the way. Our son, now six months, was self settling to sleep within days and I wholeheartedly believe the small changes Tori helped us introduce gradually were key to our success. The advice and knowledge that Tori has been able to share has been invaluable. She has been a pleasure to work with and I will miss not speaking to her every day!
Update: I recently contacted Tori again after our now 11month old son was again very unsettled overnight and with going to sleep. Tori had wonderful advice to give and was so supportive in my panic of ‘he has forgotten how to sleep’. Within two days of implementing her advice and tweaks to our routine, we had a baby sleeping for longer stretches than previously and so happy again. I honestly can’t recommend or thank Tori enough. As my husband said, “Tori worked her baby magic AGAIN”.

"My baby was catnapping, overtired and would only sleep on me".
My experience with All About Sleep was a timely saviour; Tori was able to help me through two sleep stages with my daughter. Firstly, with an extremely overtired, catnapping eight week old and again at four months with a feed to sleep association. My baby would fall asleep feeding and would only sleep on me. Tori was able to reverse my overtired baby, teach her to connect sleep cycles, self-settle and establish a sleep routine. I enjoyed working with Tori; she was knowledgeable, encouraging and genuinely there for me with support. I will never struggle with baby sleep issues again, as I know Tori is only a phone call away.
