He couldn't settle on his own, I always had to feed him to sleep, he would struggle to nap well in the day time and he would wake up crying multiple times throughout the night. Myself and my husband had really hit rock bottom with it. I knew we needed help so I decided to reach out to Misha at the Gentle sleep nanny and thank goodness we did, as she has literally changed our lives!
We had the most positive training experience with Misha and her sleep training advice for our 10 month old son Austin. He had fairly good day naps but night sleep seemed to be going backwards and he was waking every few hours which having huge impact on our whole family. We knew some things needed to change but weren't sure exactly what or how to do it. Misha was incredible at delving into all details and providing us information plus explanation on how to make improvements. The first night was tough but she was literally there with us the whole night providing support. The second night he slept through! The improvements have been atomising and we are wishing we had reached out for help sooner. Thank you Misha from all our family!!
I never realised how much sleep consultancy could do until I got Misha's help. With her help, my baby son learned to have a regular daytime naps, to fall asleep in his own bed and even to self soothe. All in a matter of weeks! Our son is a different boy as a result of this, smiling a lot more and overall much happier. We couldn't have done it without Micha's clear, gentle and knowledgeable guidance - She's a star and really makes a difference!
I can't recommend Misha highly enough. My husband and I were getting little sleep trying to re-settle our son for hours every night for weeks but he now sleeps 11 hours a night every single night. The personalised plan from Misha was invaluable and has given us our lives back! Misha is very knowledgeable and experienced.
I was at the end of my rope worrying about my 6 month old son and his sleep and nap troubles. After just a week, my son is putting himself to sleep and showing so much progress! Misha makes herself so available and can answer any question I have or has a solution for any situation. This experience has been wonderful and I recommend Gentle Sleep Nanny to anyone who needs the best for your little one!
I had such a wonderful experience with Misha! She helped me see immediate results with my daughter Milly after she had a sleep regression. She now puts herself to sleep and self soothes in the night. She was also immediately happier after she was getting more sleep. Misha was easily reachable, full of good ideas and supportive even with small questions. I highly recommend Misha!!
When I contacted Misha my 18 week old son had started waking up every 2 hours a night and I was exhausted. Misha gave us a lot of great advice, which did not involve leaving my son to cry for more than a few minutes and within just a few days he was sleeping so much better, waking only once in the night and settling himself within a few minutes. Misha was incredibly supportive throughout and kept in regular contact to see how we were getting on. We were amazed by the quick results! I wish we had started Sleep training our son sooner.
Our little Daphne - perfect in every way apart from her sleep! We were at our whits end when It had got to the stage of Daphne waking hourly in the night, me crying to my husband at night and surviving off coffee and energy drinks. With me returning to work and Daphne starting nursery we had to make the commitment to finally hire a sleep consultant after months of putting it off. The best decision we’ve ever made! I found Misha through Instagram and loved that she had children of her own so really knew how hard it can be. From the very first call, I knew Misha was a right fit for our family, she let me chew her ear off and listened to all my concerns. We went through a detailed background about Daphne so Misha knew who Daphne was a person and not just her sleep habits. Misha was so quick with arranging our sleep programme so we could implement it straight away and we did! We were committed to making it work and we had to stay committed as with Daphne it wasn’t a quick fix. Misha was there every step of the way, I spoke with her throughout the day and evenings everyday and it was so nice to have someone to lean on during that time, never did I feel that I was putting Misha out. We weren’t a quick fix like you see sometimes but within 2 weeks she was sleeping through, self settling and taking amazing naps…I can’t quite believe I’m even writing that. We are praising Misha and sleep training to everyone we speak to. We can’t thank her enough for the support, kind ear and dedication she made to our family getting the sleep we needed.
"Misha is a miracle worker and worth every penny. Our 9 month old son was in bed with us and feeding several times a night, and most naps were contact naps of only 30 minutes. He's a very lively little boy who's into everything, and never seemed tired until he was suddenly over tired.
From the first night of working with Misha, he slept for over 11 hours and he has done so every night since then (and will sleep over 12 hours when his bedtime is earlier), and after the first week we dropped the dream feed too. The first night he cried for around half an hour but most nights since he's fallen asleep in minutes. He occasionally wakes in the night but self settles mostly without crying. His naps are also a lot better, all in the cot or pram.
The main things we have worked on with Misha are awake windows, sleep environment and bedtime/napping routine. For this to work, we have had to be very flexible with our plans for the day, so that Luca can nap at the right time, at home whenever possible. It has been totally worth it as Luca is now a different baby, much calmer and happier, and his development has come along too. We also have our evenings and bed back, and some time in the day whilst he naps.
Thank you Misha!"
I was dreading sleep training, but knew we needed to do something, as being woken up every two hours, every night was exhausting us all.
Misha immediately made me feel more relaxed about it, so we got to work asap.
Night 2 - straight down and sleeping through the night. I was amazed, and so relieved.
We just needed to re-gig what we were doing.
Have faith - she can make it all better.
Extremely pleased we found her

Thank you very much for your amazing help and support, you really changed our life and it was so unbelievable that we could achieve this (12-13 hour continuous sleeping at nights for my 13 months old daughter who could not sleep more than 2 hours ) , again want to say thanks for everything you did for us , wish you best of luck and happiness in your life ?? ??
This lady worked miracles for me when I struggled with my 2 yrs old son.
So kind, patience and professional.
Wouldn’t have done it without her, so grateful!
