I CAN HELP YOU!!!
I can help you solve your child’s sleep problems WITHOUT leaving them to cry, wherever you are in Ireland and over seas also.
Many families experience sleep problems and it is not a reflection on you as a parent or a failing. You might think that among your friends you are the only one still getting up at night, but quite often that is not the case-read the forums and discussion boards-filled with a variety of sleep problems. Research shows that sleep problems contribute to behavioural problems, excessive crying, ADHD, obesity, poor immune system, decreased concentration, irritablity, moodiness, inability to play independently alone or with others…
There are lots of different sleep problems and various solutions-my solutions are sympathetic and child centred and parent-led, taking into account your individual child’s needs, parenting style and expectations.
You do NOT have to complete a lengthy sleep diary-completion of a short Client History Review will enable me to get you started on the road to sleep success.
I do NOT endorse leaving your child alone to “cry it out” or use cry intensive strategies-I encourage you to stay and respond, to soothe and calm them for the duration until they feel more safe and secure and you begin to feel more confident.

We were seriously struggling with our little girl who was 7 months by the time we asked for Lucy’s help. She wouldn’t sleep longer than two hours at a time and nighttime was a mixture of rocking in her buggy and bringing her into the bed with us and at this point being in the bed wouldn’t even placate her……
When I contacted Lucy we were at out wits end. My eight months old baby boy was waking 6 plus times a night and being rocked /bottle fed to sleep. I knew this was the problem, but could not get away from the habit we had created. He seemed to be a lot more “sensitive” than our first and any methods of sleep training we had tried ended up in hysteria within minutes. Lucy went through his history in detail and devised a plan to suit O. Lucy’s words to me were this will get worse before it gets better, I laughed thinking it can’t get any worse……
My baby was 7.5 months old when I came to Lucy Wolfe, she wasn’t sleeping great waking at night and how I managed night wakings was my downfall because I was reading so much of do this, don’t do that etc, crying out is the only way which I couldn’t do. She was fussy going to bed, there was a mixed bag of things I needed help with. …..
We were at our wits end when we contacted you. Our daughter was always a great sleeper until at 2 & ½, following a sickness, family trauma and the addition of her baby sibling, she became distressed / anxious and would wake screaming up to 6 times per night. It was exhausting for her, and us. We had almost run out if ideas on how to fix the problem until we got in touch with Lucy Wolfe. …..
When we spoke about getting in touch with Lucy I kept talking myself out of it …the reason being we had such a tight solid routine for our 8month old that I really felt what can Lucy do for us …..From the time our 8 month old went down for the night we were constantly up and down the stairs this went on for almost all of the night we struggled to get her into a deep sleep…..
Thanks to Lucy we have our lives back, no exaggeration! We contacted her for help with our 13 mth old daughter who has only slept a handful of nights since she was born. She would only nap during the day if she was held and she was up every hour or more at night. We were constantly tired, irritable and late for everything! We were sure we had tried everything. Lucy looked at our whole daily routine and everything surrounding our daughters sleep and pointed out a few things to us that we hadn’t thought of. ….
We still cannot believe how successful the sleep training with Lucy was and the absolute change it’s had on our lives. Our baby was being fed to sleep, and that worked for us for a while until it didn’t.. Don’t even get me started on the stress of the dreaded transfer into the cot. I was absolutely exhausted feeding her up to every 45 minutes to 2 hours at night, and just did not have enough energy to enjoy my time with her and I also began to resent being constantly trapped under the baby breastfeeding so much….
We came to you looking for help when we were at the end of our tether. One whole year of being woken. Every 1.5 hours. It was total hell. Calling you and making an appointment was the best decision we have ever made. It was tough, but we persevered and now our beautiful babies sleep 12 hours every single night!!!!!!…
After a year of very little sleep, and coming to the end of our tether, we contacted Lucy and im so glad we did! My daughter started wakening for 2-4 hrs every night from she was 20 months, which led to quite a cranky little girl during day and a very tired mammy and daddy (i was also pregnant during this time!) I thought i had tried everything but nothing made a difference! Lucy gave me a tweaked routine to follow with an earlier bedtime and loads of support!! She advised me that my daughters particular issue may take 4+ weeks to resolve….
We initially contacted Lucy because our now 20 month old daughter’s sleep routine slowly went from bad to worse. It all started after we moved countries and my daughter found it difficult to settle for anyone but me (mum!) for the last year we’ve struggled with hours of wakefulness during the night, bottles at midnight, short, low quality naps during the day and a very poor appetite. Lucy was recommended to us by others who had found her advice invaluable….
My little boy was sleeping great until he reached 3 months when he went through a growth spurt and his nighttime sleep went haywire. I reached out to Lucy when he was 5 months after trying everything I could think of/read and ruled out everything I thought could be contributing to his sleep issues such as hunger etc. He was napping great during the day but would wake anything up to ten times a night and I just couldn’t figure out why given he was getting appropriate daytime sleep for his age. From five minutes into our first consultation with Lucy I knew I had done the right thing reaching out to her….
