"So, so thankful for Diana and the amazing support/knowledge she provided me with when I first contacted her. She gave me hope on a day when I was totally lost and didn't know how to manage the sleep of my 3-week-old girl. Everything seems easier now that I know all the information she provided me with and I know that I can find support anytime. She is amazing!
I highly recommend her services"

"Diana is the person who saved me. She appeared at a time when I felt that fatigue, stress and anxiety were starting to make their mark more and more. I never imagined that a child's sleep was so problematic, but Diana helped me get over this hop in raising the little one. The changes are obvious, and not only in my case but especially I discovered what it's like to have a rested child: a child who has a schedule, a child who plays and laughs more because he is not always tired. After 30 minutes of sleep during the day and an hour and a half at night, I realized what life actually is like with a child. I don't know how I would have done things without her support. She’s the most wonderful woman I've ever met since I became a mother. She helped, supported and encouraged me when I needed to, without saying anything , offered me unconditional support, and for many others I will remain eternally grateful to her. "Thank you” seems small  but is everything I can say!"

"I have booked a 1 to 1 initial call with Diana as I am getting ready for the arrival of my second child. This time I want to approach the sleep issue better and tackle the situation early on. She provided me with a lot of much needed information, resources to follow, both online & offline and most important of all she helped me really choose what I actually need to buy for my child and what I do not. I now feel much better prepaired and I am sure this time we will all start sleeping through the night sooner rather the later. I highly recommend her services. Her sleep & breastfeeding knowledge is very vast & extremely hands-on focused."

Cristina C.,

"We loved working with Diana and her customized programme for our child. With her help I managed to understand how sleep actually works for my 2 year old child, transitioning him from sleeping in bed with us to sleeping in his crib. I also got rid of the never ending milk bottles that I used to give him every night, before sleep. She was a great support everyday and speaking with her is a real pleasure. She is informed about most of the motherhood subjects and not only. Thank you!"

Raluca C.,

"Diana is very resourceful and professional. I am pregnant and before talking to her I had all kinds of questions and thoughts on motherhood that increased my anxiety levels. She normalized all my fears, gave me useful tips and tricks and provided me with a well documented research on what is yet to come in the new journey of a future mommy. I recommend her 100%!"

" As active and sportive new parents that also miss their old hobbies, we can assure anyone that restless nights co-sleeping with non-stop breastfeeding, just to close an eye, were not a good option, although it seemed to be the only one. Even if we were very skeptical about asking for help and making dramatic changes, Diana convinced us at least to give it a try.We are starting now the second week with her consultancy and we already feel like different people. It took only a couple of days to realize that we don’t have a baby with sleeping problems as we thought. Now he can easily sleep in his own crib by himself.Our baby, almost 7 months now, responded very well to the approach, decreasing his night wakings to one or none per night. The most shocking thing we found out that he needs one or none feeding at night.Of course, this un-training Diana planned for us worked very well for daily naps as well. We were still having five 30 minutes naps a day and we were convinced that our baby is “just like that-he can’t sleep more and can’t stay awake longer”. Now he has 3 naps a day and he sleeps at least an hour by himself. The waking periods are longer and the baby is happier doing his activities. It seems like he even enjoys more eating solids.Diana motivates my wife and helps her a lot also with breastfeeding information as she still wants to breastfeed our baby.We still have things to improve but now I am sure if we stick to Diana’s plan, however baby changes, he will easily adapt and we can easily get over all phases."

Stefan C.,

" I know that in general a mother likes to hold the baby close at all times, especially at night, but then, you realize the baby also needs a peaceful sleep without multiple wake-ups. Diana taught me how to peacefully help my baby sleep in his cot, without waking up every two hours. She is amazing, kind, available and above all gave me confidence in my decisions and abilities as a mother. I cannot recommend her enough. You will have quality sleep and so will the baby. Thank you Diana!"

Florentina D.

"My husband and I contacted Diana with plenty of questions about best practices for promoting healthy sleep for our infant son. Diana proved to be a wealth of helpful information, resources, and guidance for our family. Her kind reassurance and advice gave us confidence to provide the loving care and support our son needed to gain quality, restful sleep. We can't thank Diana enough and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her infant and child sleep support services to any family in need."

"When our little girl was 6 months old we had gotten into a pattern of pretty negative sleep habits. Having read a good amount about sleep, but not knowing where to start, we needed someone to guide us towards better sleep and better rest as a family. In comes Diana with her immense knowledge, natural confidence and thoughtful approach. After learning all about us and our baby, she gave us a plan and held our hand along the way as we implemented it. And what a transformation! We now had a baby who knew how to fall asleep on her own and who slept well at naps and nighttime. We were so happy to finally be sleeping, all of us :). Recently, I contacted Diana again as we are in the middle of a nap transition and it seemed like our old routines needed a bit of change. Again, she was so patient and helpful, gave us really good tips and tricks, as well as a good dose of optimism that things can be great again (and with a little work, improvement was right around the corner!). I will always be grateful that I met Diana, she is so much more than a sleep consultant, she really cares about families, about parents and children alike, she's always reading and learning new things and eager to share. Overall, highly recommend, we can't sing her praises enough here at our house!"

"This is the second time we have worked with Diana. The first time we only had one baby and she was truly amazing. This time we have 2! A 7 month old and a 2 year old. Both having really disrupted sleep for different reasons and we decided to sleep train at the same time. Diana was so supportive, knowledgable and responsive. It was a really tough process but she explained everything so well and helped me stick with it when it was really hard. Two weeks later they are both sleeping soooo much better. The 2 year old has gone back to sleeping through and the baby has gone from hourly wakings to generally solid chunks of sleep and just waking for feeds. A dream that felt impossible two weeks ago! Diana is honestly a super hero. She is with you every step of the way and always answers your questions thoroughly and quickly - which is so important when you’re so tired and don’t know what you’re doing!! I would 100% recommend to anyone wanting help with children’s sleep"

"Diana helped me with my baby's bottle-sleep association. She did that with only a one time video call meeting. I knew we needed to make a change and Diana gave me the final push and I'm so happy. My 4 month old daughter was waking up almost every 2 h for the bottle at night but after we made the change she woke up 2 times only. Also after getting rid of the many night time feedings that actually stopped working and she couldn't go back to sleep anymore, she actually learnt to fall asleep by herself! I thought that this is a myth! Diana is very knowledgeable, but also a very nice person. If we will have again sleep problems in the future I will reach out to her again. Making that change was actually easier than I thought, my baby adjusted quickly so don't be afraid!After our first video call, my daughter slept amazingly! She woke up only once a night for a feeding and fell back asleep, also she was an independent sleeper, but unfortunately 2 months later the 6 months sleep regression came along with a cold and separation anxiety which made my daughter want me to be next to her at each awakening, 4-5 times a night.After talking to Diana for the second time, we figured out what to do now and I am working again on my daughter's habits. I saw improvements after just 1 night of applying her advice.Every time I talk to Diana I see how knowledgeable she is in every field...nursing, sleep, potty stuff, baby health stuff and so on! She is always up to date with the newest studies"

"When I was pregnant I heard a lot of scary stories from parents regarding babies’ sleep. I contacted Diana during pregnancy and of course, after giving birth. All the advice given, the schedule she prepared and all my questions answered with details were a tremendous help! Good and healthy sleeping habits make the whole family happy, well rested and having energy to do all sorts of activities during waking hours. Diana understands your needs, has a lot of knowledge and makes a personalised plan for the family. I am more than happy to have my baby able to sleep through the night and also having regular naps during the day. I totally recommend her!"

Adriana B.

"Diana helped us teach our 6 months old baby to fall asleep on her own. Before that, we would spend a lot of time rocking her to sleep just for her to wake up after a short while. After we applied Diana’s plan, both baby and us now sleep much better. She was always available to answer all the questions. She is a very pleasant and warm person. Contacting her was the best thing to do for our baby's sleep habits. Thank you!"

Tiberia M.

"Diana is the kind of person who can turn even a skeptic around, which she did with us. She is kind and dedicated, she gave us courage, especially me, and thus laid down the path for a better understanding of our 18 months old boy. From 7-10 night wake-ups during the night, namely bottle feedings, we are to zero bottle feedings and no wake-ups, something I didn’t think was even possible since there hasn’t been a night like that since we welcomed our baby boy. Her knowledge and her faith in my abilities as a mother gave me the confidence I lacked to “untrain” bad sleep habits and to have a rested boy. I am forever thankful to her!"

Corina C.

"I told Diana that I'll soon transform into Spiderman from all the sleep I'm getting lately after her assistance! Our daughter is 9 months, and she was always assisted to sleep by us. We were going through a rough patch where we had to rock her for 40 minutes for every nap and night sleep. She also had a very fragmented night sleep and we were done with it. Diana helped me understand that kids need space and alone time to practice falling asleep by themselves and all the 'soothing' we were doing was actually way too stimulating for our baby. We've seen great results in a week and it was easier than expected. Diana is very caring, helpful and encouraging, it also helps that she's really funny! I loved that her approach was gradual, gentle and in sync with our family's needs at the moment. She also helped us move our baby girl to her own room which has been life changing. Without her encouragement and presence, we would probably have delayed the

"I totally recommend Diana. She is very supportive, kind and patient. She gave me all the time the support that I needed and even now, when we completed the seasion with her she still wants to know about us and is always keeping in touch with us. Thanks Diana for everything."

Diana B.
Sibiu, Romania

"When I contacted Diana my baby girl (5 months and a half) was able to fall asleep only in my arms, while breastfeeding or outside, if I took her for a walk. She used to wake up multiple times each night, especially in the second part of the night, and sometimes it was impossible to transfer her back to her crib. Fast forward a couple of days and our nights and bedtime routine changed a lot. Our baby is able to fall asleep and get back to sleep after night wakings without my help, in her own cot, unless it is time for breastfeeding (once or twice a night). And all this happened after working with Diana and following the sleep plan she created for us. Our baby learned to fall asleep on her own much easier than I expected, so I encourage every family who's in doubt because they are afraid of the child's reaction to go for it and give it a try! Diana gave us the confidence we needed to trust our baby and do the changes for the benefit of our whole family. Our baby enjoys her uninterrupted rest and getting our sleep back was a beautiful gift for us. Thank you again, Diana, you are the best!"

"Diana has significantly helped me to put my baby boy in good order regarding his sleeping habits. Diana is always there for us to help us with any problems that we are facing. She is highly educated and gives a lot of time, compassion and effort in order to help. I'm really grateful for the work she is doing for us! Therefore, I would highly recommend Diana for all families that are facing sleeping problems with their little ones!"

"If you are looking for a trusted sleep consultant, look no further. Diana is knowledgeable, kind, supportive and reassuring. She is so passionate about helping families get the best sleep of their lives. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients. She helped my nearly 3 year old daughter, who was co-sleeping with me and waking up all through the night, to manage to sleep and fall asleep(!) on her own. We still get the occasional wake up but we are still in the process of learning and with Diana's support, we will definitely get there. Thank you so much for all your dedication and help!"

Ana K.

"Diana supported us during a critical time with our 5m old baby. She is very knowledgeable, hands on and her tips and tricks are so useful! Her help was super appreciated. I highly recommend her! THANK YOU DIANA! Keep in touch!"

Roxana D.

"Diana was recommended to me by a friend, despite my sleep thief being a toddler approaching three, Diana was happy to take us on as clients. She helped us as a family iron out some bad habits and set some good intentions to get my little boy in to a routine whereby he can self soothe at bedtime. It's a work in progress but has improved massively and Diana has always set realistic expectations with us. Frequent telephone contact is unrealistic for me since I have two older boys, but Diana was happy to text and provide tips and support via text. I would encourage you to make the move and contact Diana. Thanks Sally "

"Diana is absolutely incredible! We have just finished working with her after two weeks and I miss her already! Diana worked with us as part of her graduation project so worked with us pro bono. My one year old daughter has gone from sleeping in my bed and waking multiple times per night, to sleeping in her own room and SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! She is also napping really well on her own and has stopped using a dummy. It's made such a difference to our lives and our sleep.Diana is so supportive, knowledgable and kind. She really tailored the plan around our circumstances and wishes and was so invested in our journey. I felt like I could ask her anything and trusted her implicitly as she is so well read and researched. She also really supported me when I was finding it hard or was doubting myself.100% recommend to anyone struggling with their children's sleep. Diana was born to do this work and she is just amazing!"

Adele D.
Sheffield, UK

"Although we are still in the learning process for the self soothing skills and independent sleep, we can clearly see the progress. Our baby, who is 9 months old, could not sleep longer than 30 minutes for a day nap and during the night she used to wake up at least 4 or 5 times. Now she is sleeping 1 hour and 30 minutes for day naps and during the night she only wakes up once, for milk. There are also less good days, when she wakes up more frequent due to teeth pain, but even so, the progress and difference are undebatable. We are so grateful for Diana’s help and we warmly encourage you to use her services and trust her!"

Madalina B.

"Super lovely, super helpful and super responsive. We got in touch ahead of the tricky own-room transfer for some advice and she not only provided some great tailor made tips but also checked in afterwards to see how we’d got on. Really knowledgeable and approachable - can’t recommend highly enough"

May W.

"Diana helped me understand my child’s sleep better. She gave me good advice and made sure I understood everything. She is very supportive and even after our session she reached out to ask how we are doing. Mammas out there, if you haven’t slept well for months, I feel you. If you want to change it, Diana is ready to help you."
