As first time parents, we had little to no idea about how important the balance of awake time and nap time would be for a little baby. I was filled with anxiety when my nanny left, not know if I could handle a baby all day with no help. Our baby was also used to being carried and rocked to sleep by the nanny, and also given a pacifier whenever he woke in the middle of a nap or night sleep. This meant A LOT of work, and time wasted. When we received Lavinia's customized routine for our then 15 week old baby, it seemed too idealistic. No way our baby will fall into such a predictable and manageable routine, AND going to sleep without any of the props or being carried. However, we were totally convinced by the end of just a few days that it works. It is possible to get a baby to sleep independently and with consistency, it is possible for baby to eventually fall into a predictable routine throughout the day. By the end of the 2 weeks with Lavinia's constant guidance and encouragement, we have gained so much confidence and life became very manageable. This has been one of the best investments for both baby and parents!

I just wanted to drop a note to say how valuable Greg and I have found your help and support. I am shocked that it was really so easy to get Mack sleeping through the night and napping as well. I wish we had met you sooner! You were so supportive and thoughtful with your solutions. I felt as though you really understood our family and Mack's needs and I can't thank you enough!

We just want to say how grateful we are to have found Lavinia. We couldn’t have done it without her. Our baby used to be carried, rocked and patted by the nanny. Over the night, our nanny visited her cot up to 20 times a night not to mention a couple of night feedings. Her naps were quite poor as well, and she slept only 30-45 minutes each nap. Then Lavinia came and altered her schedule. Now she is able to sleep on her own and through the night. Zero visits to her cot, no more night feeding and her nap time is 1.5 to 2 hours for each nap. Lavinia has always been really supportive and positive to help us go through the sleep training process. We highly recommend her!

If you are looking for someone who is kind, compassionate and so ready to provide support with helping you train your little bub to sleep well, I highly recommend Lavinia. Check out Our Little Chicks. Without any hyperbole, Lavinia has literally saved my life. And she did it without causing little Lucas pain and suffering, as one often imagines sleep training to be.
- Jolene, Thomas and Master Lucas (10.5 months old)
Lavinia is very professional and clear. She is also very personable, compassionate and understanding. The ideal sleep consultant anyone would like for their baby. She is very supportive and encouraging. It is clear she understands first-hand what parents go through when their baby sleeps poorly. She is not calculating and goes above and beyond the call of duty when dealing with any issues.
My little one's sleep issues are now completely resolved. He is sleeping 12-13.5h straight every night and has on average two 2h naps a day. Sometimes he naps even longer and I have to wake him up! All this with no crying.
No one is suffering from lack of sleep anymore, everyone is happy. I have time to exercise, nap, read etc during the day. I think my husband and I are the 2 most well-rested parents of a newborn ever!

I am happy to say that the program has helped my son and family a lot.
Lavinia personalized the plan for me, especially for the daytime naps, for example, providing him with a little bit of help in the first few days and then transitioning to the strict plan. I think that helped me immensely in keeping my sanity and sticking to the plan. I believe this kind of personalization is really really important.
We can plan our day and evenings much better, our baby is less cranky during his awake times and most importantly I feel happy that he is getting the amount and quality of sleep a baby of his age needs.
Thanks to the Sleep Sense Program and Ms Lavinia Rajah.

Lavinia has been of great support & encouragement through this sleep training journey. Sleep training my baby was tough, emotional & exhausting but Lavinia never left my side! She continued to provide me with endless support whenever I needed her guidance & advise. I stuck to the plan from Lavinia & I’ve seen remarkable results in my baby! He sleeps through the night & has even dropped his night feed.
Lavinia comes highly recommended for anyone looking to sleep train their baby!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Lavinia!

I engaged Lavinia when my youngest daughter was three years old. Having co-slept with all three of my children, I was a bit hesitant to sleep train, but Lavinia soon put my mind at ease. She was patient, flexible and accommodating and very clear and structured in her advice. She even made a little book for Avana to read before bed. She accepted my decision to still want to co-sleep in the same room, and really helped me with my primary problem which was to get Avana off breastfeeding to sleep and waking up a million times a night. It was definitely challenging but Lavinia was a rock throughout, checking up on me every day and trouble shooting when necessary. Avana is sleeping well now! and so am I. I would highly recommend Our Little Chicks Sleep Solutions if your little ones are having issues. Her compassionate but structured approach really helped our family.

My daughter had gone from sleeping through the night to waking every 1-2hrs and only going to sleep whilst being nursed, we decided to get help and contacted Lavinia and I’m so glad we did! Just wish we hadn’t waited so long! Within 2 days my daughter was sleeping through the night and putting herself to sleep without being fed for every bed time and every nap! Lavinia really is a miracle worker and the bespoke sleeping plan/routine she drew up for us really worked. I can not recommend our little chicks sleep solutions strongly enough to anyone who wants to get their children sleeping! We finally have our nights back to ourselves and I feel like a different person, best decision we have made😊
- Kay, Tom and little Miss Ottilie (6 months)
I cannot recommend Lavinia enough! I started the sleep training journey after accepting the fact that my daughter was getting sleep-deprived and needed help... I dreaded having to leave her to cry, feared she would get traumatised in some way.
Fast forward 2 weeks and she was sleeping at least 2 hours more per day than she slept at the beginning of the training.
She now sleeps 12 hours straight during the night, falls asleep by herself for all naps and has never been more energetic, happy or livelier.
I fully understand all doubts and fears but trust Lavinia and you will see results and have a well-rested baby and family as well.

My 6.5 month old is like a different baby now that she's getting sleep!! She is so much happier and we can actually put her down now (and even leave the room!) so we are much happier too. In one week, she went from nursing every hour through the night to going 12 hours without needing a feed. We've also gone from 100% carrier naps (as we could not put her down) to long naps in the cot. Thank you, Lavinia, we would not have been able to achieve this without your reassuring confidence! I would recommend you to anyone!
- Lisa, Vikram and little Miss Anya (6.5 months)
We decided to engage Lavinia to sleep train our twin boys and it has been one of the best decision ever. She was very patient, supportive and encouraging throughout our entire journey with her.
Her customised sleep plan was simple to implement and looks at the overall wellbeing of the babies. Our boys can now sleep independently, take longer naps and are able to put themselves back to sleep 🤩. Furthermore, they are also feeding much better and are also much happier when they wake up 😃

I highly recommend Lavinia Rajah. We (i.e. my wife) was extremely apprehensive about sleep training. But with Lavinia's very detailed and structured approach and plan, we are so happy to report that our 7 month year old son is (a) falling asleep without assistance, (b) sleeping 10 to 11 hours through the night and (c) has never been happier and more alert. Both his appetite and skin condition have also improved.
We could not have done this without Lav and are very grateful for all her support and counsel. We could not have asked for a better sleep consultant. Thank you!

Lavinia was responsive and reassuring throughout our 2 week program. It was great to have her around to troubleshoot and make adjustments to our baby’s schedule as the day went on. Our baby is now able to sleep independently and takes two great naps everyday. Thanks, Lavinia!

"Engaging Lavinia was the best decision my husband and I made for our family. We knew she was ‘the one’ the moment we had our initial consult with her on the phone. She was the only sleep consultant that took the time to ask us about our son (13weeks) and his sleep habits, and understand our situation and motivations for starting the sleep coaching. Her empathy and compassion moved us and we were confident that if we followed her plan, we would see an improvement in our baby’s sleep.
She customized a plan that was clear and very workable for our family, and her instructions, guidelines and principles were sound. Throughout our time together, she was very involved and prompt, working with us to tweak our son’s naptime and bedtime schedule. It was like having a sleep angel watching over our family. Lavinia also gave us space as the days went by, allowing us to be independent while being responsive when we asked questions.
We were cognizant that there would be highs and lows during sleep training, but we were ecstatic to see results almost immediately (2 days after sleep training started)! Our son, who could barely take naps beyond 20mins and required lots of rocking, walking, bouncing in order to sleep, slept independently by day 2 of sleep training, for more than 45mins! By the end of our sleep training, our son had the ability to sleep through the night, even though this had not been our primary goal.
We also liked that Lavinia provided strategies for the future – when sleep regression and illness hit, when naps are reduced from 3 to 2 to 1, when we travel etc… She not only solves your current problem, but future proofs your baby’s sleep!
We are grateful that we can say goodbye to missed or late meals, standing carrier naps, frustration and tears, an overtired baby, and being exhausted and weary parents. We now have a more rested baby (longer naps), are more confident and relaxed parents, and definitely have more me-time.
Thank you Lavinia for sharing your wisdom, for being so encouraging, and making such a great improvement to ours and Toby’s sleep!"
