About Sleep Fairy & Parent Rescue

Practical advice for sleep, eating and behaviour issues in babies, toddlers and children up to 11 years old.

When your little one is keeping you awake at night or testing your patience, you need practical advice, a  SIMPLE plan to follow and PLENTY of support. You don't need to turn your life upside down or compromise your parenting beliefs, and we won't make you leave your child to cry it out alone.

Being a parent is HARD WORK! Kids are tricky.


When you're knackered and feeling overwhelmed, it's hard to work out what to do, especially when you're surrounded by conflicting advice from friends and the internet. This is why parents like you turn to us for help.


“Such a massive change in Frank! He had giggles at bedtime last night! He no longer cries when I put him to bed, or at nap time. He just rolls around for a few minutes and then goes to sleep. I can’t believe it!”
