I feel truly honoured to be able to support families in Perth and all around the world with their sleep needs. Everytime a family spends time writing a review, it warms my heart.
I could not recommend Katie and the Bub2sleep program enough.
Before We started the program, I as at my wits end and my husband was starting to get concerned about my health. I could only ever get my baby to sleep by feeding, which would take at least 45 minutes of crying and protesting. I was physically exhausted from constantly rocking him. He would then only sleep on me for 30 minutes. As soon as I put him dov1n he would wake up and start screaming. I managed to get him in the bassinet at night. but this involves multiple attempts to get him to stay asleep and around 6 feeds a night. I was starting to co sleeping so I could get some sleep and was surviving in about 4 hours sleep a night.
When we had our zoom call with Katie, my husband and I were very upfront that we did not think the plan would work. But it did!
That first night he woke up once and slept to 7:30 in his own cot!
Two weeks later we are in a solid feed play sleep routine with no protests when feeding. He has stopped vomiting because I can burb him properly after feeds. The vast majority of the time he will settle as soon as we put him in the cot. He has slept through the night a number of times. And I have more freedom to leave the house as he will now sleep in the car.
Katie was an amazing support. She was always available during the few tough nap times reassuring us that we are doing the right thing and giving advice. She also taught us how to manage future problems that arise, such as when to adjust awake windows.
Thankyou so much Katie. You have made me enjoy being a mum so much more.
” Apologies for this being so late but we’d like to thank Donna for her help with our little girl. The age old story it seems, she needed rocked for every sleep, waking up all the time with a very tired and injured (good old Mum’s Thumb and four bouts of mastitis) Mum and Dad. Donna was recommended by two good friends but after already having a horrible experience with another sleep consultant and a stay at the Glengarry Sleep clinic (lovely staff but it didn’t help for us), we were very sceptical yet very desperate for some help.
I cried on my first call with Donna who never once made me feel like a failure or an annoyance despite my constant questions (this had happened constantly with our first experience with a sleep consultant) and my anxiety was through the roof. Donna took it away piece by piece and helped us feel more confident around sleep.
We now have a little girl who goes down for both naps and her bedtime wonderfully and sleeps through the night. It took a few weeks of tweaking here and there but we have gotten to a place I only dreamed of. I know there will be little speed bumps here and there with sleep but that’s life.
Thank you Donna for helping our family. I am so very grateful for your help. Much love from a much more rested Mamma! “
” Would recommend Donna 1000%, my daughter was 17 months, still sleeping in bed with me and on the boob all night, I was getting little to no sleep, and either was my daughter, which led to very grumpy days, from the both of us I thought I had left it to long to look into sleep training, but then I found Donna, I will be honest, I was sceptical that my clingy toddler who has slept in my bed and been fed to sleep since she was born would ever be able to self settle and sleep in her cot, but after 2 weeks, my girl is putting herself to sleep, in her own bed and sleeping through the night!! no breastfeeds or anything! I had forgot how good sleep is! Thank you so much Donna, I can’t even express how much I appreciate you for saving mine and my daughters sleep!
” All I can say is thank you, from the moment I spoke with Donna on the phone I was comfortable and confident she would be able to help us with our little non sleeper, with Donna’s plan and a few little tweeks of our own our little man is now sleeping 11-12 hours with 2 feeds as opposed to waking every hour through the night, thank you Donna you saved our sanity “
” I don’t even know where to start! You are just amazing! Thank you for saving my sanity for the second time! After cluster feeding to sleep for hours on end being woken up multiple times a night and slept on all day, to two days into the program having a better sleep awake routine and just simply reading Jetts cues and needs!! At 4months old he now puts himself to sleep in the cot every sleep , breastfeeds more efficiently and has started sleeping through or one night waking! Thank you thank you thank you for giving me sleep and my personal space back! After so much success with our first child harper a couple of years ago who still now at 3 1/2 loves her sleep and an afternoon nap I couldn’t look any further when I was exhausted and tired well thank goodness I rang you!!! Thank you for being so available and supportive you truly are a gem! love Aleece rhys harper and baby jett! If you are struggling with sleep look no further Donna is the best!!!! “
” From the the first night of starting our specialised sleep program for baby ‘0’ we noticed a HUGE difference. Baby ‘0’ was waking up every half an hour over night and day naps were non existent. She now sleeps from 7pm- 7am (sometimes 8!) every night and her days naps are over an hour long!!! We now can enjoy our time together as a family and I wish we had done this sooner! The program was easy to follow and we always felt like we were supporting our bub with her to sleep! I would highly recommend Donna and her team!! “
“Highly recommend Donna. Prior to her help we had a 23month old who had gone from sleeping well as a baby to waking up at all hours as a 1 year old refusing to go to sleep and having a tantrum in the middle of the night to within 2 days a lovely daughter sleeping all night with no wake ups. Everything was incredibly gentle, no cry it out, no ignoring her just gentle boundaries which has worked perfectly for us, was simple to put into place and we were really well supported by her. We couldn’t be happier or better rested! “
“Can’t even begin to describe how much this program has helped my family and I. We contacted Donna when our little girl was 10months. we have always rocked her since birth to sleep, then started bringing her into our bed during the night. We slept in seperate rooms, and the whole house was tired.We spent countless hours pushing a pram, walking laps and trying to help our little babe fall asleep. we were exausted!
And then we met Donna , ! a few simple changes to sleep time and with in the first night our little girl slept through the night. by night 4 she was taking 5-8 minutes to fall asleep, by herself, in her cott, in her own bedroom! Since the day we started following the program designed for our baby she has slept through the night, some nights she will stir but she is able to put herself back to sleep. She has gone from one day nap, to two day naps. We pop her in the cott and 5 minutes later she is asleep. the whole house is rested, and most importantly our baby girl is happier during the day, and getting the sleep she needs. Thank you Donna!! “
“I don’t even know where to begin and how to put into words how unbelievable Donna is and how amazing her program is.
From around 3 months our bubba started fighting all sleep. We slowly tackled day naps with the help of other professionals but night time was still horrible and would take us anywhere from 45mins – 4 hours to get her to sleep each night. The only way we could get her down was rocking her or feeding to sleep and we often found ourselves having to do it again 45 minutes later when she woke from the first cycle. This was an every night battle and caused so much anxiety for myself and frustration for our family. We never got to spend any quality time together as I was either sitting there anxiously watching the monitor and waiting for her to wake up again and the screaming to start or going straight to bed as I thought I should try to get some sleep before she woke again. I got to the point that it was taking me hours to fall asleep even when she was asleep as the anxiety had taken over.
Then comes Donna to the rescue! In my first phone call with Donna she had so much enthusiasm and confidence which immediately made me feel relieved and like there was an end in sight.
The program was so detailed and easy to follow and the regular contact with Donna made us feel confident and supported. Knowing that we were sitting with our bub the whole time and helping her made the process so much easier than other programs where they are left to cry.
Fast forward five weeks after starting the program, we have a bub who self settles for all naps and sleeps with maybe 1-2 minutes of whinging as opposed to the 45 minutes – 4 hour screaming match we faced every night.
I honestly don’t know where we would be without Donna and her wealth of knowledge and encouragement. I would recommend her to anyone. She is AMAZING at what she does and cares so much for her clients, so thank you s000 much! ‘10
Love, love , love that can be there for families to support their babies to sleep well xo”
“What can I say! My baby Sebastian was a dream sleeper until 5 months and all of a sudden he would get up every 2 hours from 9pm all night long! Sometimes I would be awake trying to settle him for up to 3.5 hrs. After weeks of no sleep and my husband sleeping on the couch and having to feed him constantly to sleep, we found Donna!
With just a few tweaks he stated sleeping longer and longer every night. The best thing was settling him became very easy and it was a gentle method that we felt comfortable with. He didn’t sleep through the first or second night but slowly over the two weeks he started to sleep
More and more. Now most nights he sleeps 11hrs sometimes 12 and we have to wake him! Sure we have some early mornings or off days with him but he is only human. I’ve even contacted Donna after the program finished and she still gets back to me.
If anyone is having sleep problems with their babies don’t hesitate to contact Donna!!!!! We wish we had done it sooner. We cannot thank you enough or family is so much happier xxx”
“Donna was the perfect fit for our family’s sleep journey. Her gentle approach, tailored program, and guidance every step of the way meant that we achieved what we came to achieve. Our daughter went from relying on being fed, rocked or patted in order to get to sleep (sometimes for up to 45 minutes at a time < ). Within a few short weeks, we have a baby that not only self settles, but is now achieving longer day naps and is generally a happier bub. Donna has truly found her calling”
“Wow, what else can we say but THANK YOU! Donna you have been a lifesaver, a sleep saver and have made such a difference to our lives.
From the initial conversation with you, we were filled with confidence that you were the right person to take on the challenge. We threw a lot at you. A very active 6-month old who was climbing the walls of the cot and getting his two front teeth, and who had never once been able to put himself to sleep or settle himself. Nights were a constant battle of wakes and feeds. Until we got started.
Not only did you develop a personal plan especially for us, but you were there any time of the day to answer our questions, no matter how small, and constantly checked in to make sure things were going the right way, amending and adapting things as the days went on to help us out. There were tears all around, but you reassured us and set out minds at ease. You are so passionate about what you do and didn’t want to give up until the job was done (despite that being a bit longer than normal).
You have turned our crappy to a happy sleeper and we can’t thank you enough. We’ve raved about you to everyone and will keep sending them your way. Thanks for everything! “
“Our gorgeous 20-month-old baby girl had taken over our bed, spreading out like a little starfish and basically claiming our space. A real screamer too if she wasn’t fed boobie on demand to put her to sleep. It was the ultimate conundrum. Enter Donna – calm, focussed, passionate, and just an all-round saviour of the weary! Donna helped us create boundaries for little miss who of course had something to say about all for the first night but then with Donna’s amazing support we got this bubba of ours sleeping in her own cot, with minimal fuss, within a week. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Wish we had done it 20 months sooner! You will not regret meeting this wonderful woman.”
“Donna came to our mother’s group today to share her sleep knowledge and provide our group with the fundamentals of baby sleep. Thank you Donna for providing so much helpful information and for answering our specific questions so patiently! Such a great idea for any mums groups in Perth- invite Donna along for a coffee and gain the introductory tools to establish amazing sleep with your bubs! We have all gone home with
ideas to try that relate to our babies and the confidence to give them a go.”
“Donna has helped me so much. My son was going through he’s 4-month sleep regression and was waking up every 2hours wanting the breast. I was so tired and couldn’t do it anymore. No, my son is sleeping only waking once for a night feed! My boy self settles to sleep by himself, I finally don’t get anxiety about he’s sleep.”
“I just wanted to thank you for all the support and guidance you have given me. When I first got in contact with you, I was an emotional mess. I was so stressed, anxious, and cranky that I couldn’t provide my baby with the sleep he needed. As a healthcare professional, I rate sleep as one of the most important things a baby needs in their life. I felt like I was letting my baby boy down by not being able to get him to sleep, and having him so distressed all the time when going to sleep.
” I wanted to share something that we have wrote to thank you for everything you’ve done for us, I wanted to ask you where you’d like me to post it? I don’t have Facebook so I’m sorry I couldn’t put it on there. Please feel free to share it somewhere if you can xx
People always come into our lives for a reason. Our family was blessed to have come across a beautiful soul when we needed help for our little girl’s sleeping issues.
Donna, you have changed our lives and we want to take this opportunity to thank you ever so much for everything you have done for us.
Our 9 month old Zoe, has always been a terrible sleeper. Suffering reflux and colic, she relied on us to help her fall asleep. This was ok until she depended on us every time she went to sleep and every time she woke which led to our family being absolutely exhausted.
With Donna’s gentle approach, she taught us the skills we needed to help Zoe be able to self soothe, without a dummy, in her own cot, in her own room. Zoe is now able to sleep all night most nights which we honestly never thought she was capable of. She supported us every step of the way and always went above and beyond
We will never be able to tell you just how grateful we are Donna. Thank you again”
“Where to start… Thank you
Donna came into our lives when our bub would only fall asleep on us due to bad reflux. As she began to learn to self settle with Donna’s amazing support, she then became ill.
Not only did Donna support us in maintaining sleep whilst she was sick, but she also supported one in general.
Our 9 week old now only wakes once per night for a quick feed and can self settle with very minimal support!
She can also sleep in the car and pram with ease so this Mumma can still have a life when needed
Again thank you, Donna, for being the caring, knowledgeable, and passionate person that you are. “
“Donna. Is. An. AngelIIIIII I contacted Donna when my twin boys were 8 weeks old actual & only 2 weeks old corrected. I had 2 little humans who would only sleep in my arms as they were so used to being constantly cuddled as hey that’s what you do with any baby let alone two super tiny bubbas!! When my partner went back to work and there was 1 of me and 2 of them, I couldn’t nurse them all day. From the first day that we implemented Donna’s plan I had them both sleeping in their bassinet and they slept for 2 hours each nap!!! From the second night, our bigger twin slept through!?! Our little bubba only woke for one feed through the night and then about 4 weeks later was sleeping through also!! We had twins sleeping through the night well before they were 12 weeks actual, we never expected or hoped for this, we only wanted them to sleep better through the day and bam we were in heaven!! Donna is amazing and helps you along the way, you’re never left alone and even offers support after your 2 weeks is up! We cannot thank her enough as parenting is hard enough without sleep… especially with 2 and we don’t have to worry about that! When we go through patches of sleep disruption Donna is only a text away and that is invaluable! Our boys are 8 months old now and sleep like champions with exceptions of course (developmental milestones), but we can function & be the best parents we can be because we sleep!!! Donna is worth every cent!! “
“Hi, Donna It’s been a while since we spoke I wanted to thank you so so much for all ur help we received with our baby girl Aaliya. You have helped me and my family and our little bubba is happier with her routine than ever. Everyone we looked up was taking harsh approaches to put bubbas to sleep.. yours was so perfect and so gentle and worked within 7 days as guaranteed. I’m a big softy and super emotional when it comes to my baby girl And u were there for me every step of the way encouraging me and supporting me… making me feel that much better about myself self..and the work I was doing as a parent. I’m so so sorry it took me so long to write u this I’ve had one hell of two years with lots of tough times but the good part was that our beautiful daughter has her regular routine knows her bedtime and goes down so wonderfully with our a fight… actually looks forward to thems-::j2”, You have changed my life (our)and I still talk about u to everyone two years later… L:

“Donna has been a blessing to our family. Our 3.5-month-old girl started catnapping during the day sleeping only for one sleep cycle every nap and waking every one hour over the night. We could see how this affected her awake times also since she was always tired and not as energetic. We found Donna and from the first night that we implemented her techniques, our baby slept through the night waking only once for a feed! Unfortunately, on the second day of working with Donna we had something very unfortunate happening to our family. Donna has been by our side every day, even though we had to stop the program. She suggested we continue when things are better, without extra charges!! We are absolutely grateful to have met her, and we trust her so much with everything she taught us! We highly recommend Donna to any family who wishes better sleep and sleep habits for their babies and children!! “
“Can not recommend Donna and this program enough! Our little man was never a great sleeper from birth, but things just got significantly worse from 3 months on. By the time he reached 4 months he was waking every 45mins, needing around 4 feeds night and relied heavily on his dummy, rocking, patting to soothe himself back to sleep. This was killing us as my husband and I was barely functioning off little sleep. Donna’s approach was gentle and exactly what our sensitive little man needed to help him learn to self-sooth. We didn’t think it was possible as any first-time parents we thought our baby was different and was incurable! That he was just never going to sleep and this was our life. Boy was we wrong! After days we noticed significant changes and instant results and now our little human sleeps minimum 10hrs a night waking for only one feed! As he grows I’m confident this will be none. Thank you, Donna, again for everything xx !!”
“I never thought I’d see the day my baby boy slept through the night… but at 21 months he is thanks to Donna! The best bit, putting him to bed & walking out v., We tried everything before calling Donna who just added the final touches that made all the difference. It helped to have someone support us through it. Sometimes you just need someone to be accountable & not give up! Thanks so much, Donna!!”
“Donna is an absolute miracle worker! my hubby and I were desperate when we eventually contacted Donna to help us with our 18-month-old. Donna was professional, knowledgeable and was able to see us within about 10 days. She gave us the tools and our son slept through the night for the first time ever THE FIRST NIGHT! 1 can’t thank Donna enough, this has literally been life-changing for us! I recommend her to everyone!”
“We have 8mo twins whose night sleeping was getting worse by the month. Multiple wake-ups for lost dummies etc. I also knew that we needed to get rid of the night feed but didn’t know how and was too exhausted to try. We were recommended Donna by a lot of other twin mamas and contacted her straight away. By the second night, the girls were sleeping through! Could not believe it. Donnas approach was very gentle and quite simple to master. It was explained thoroughly and we had all the support we needed from Donna. Our experience was amazing! Thank you, Donna”

“Aaron Taylor P recommends Bub2sleep Baby Sleep Specialist. Donna is a lifesaver!!! I called Donna a few weeks ago after a night of only 45 minutes of sleep begging for help. My baby boy had just turned 6 months old and since birth has refused a dummy. I became his human dummy, literally feeding every hour throughout the night. But he wasn’t really feeding just self-soothing on my boob. It became a vicious cycle, a baby would rely on me to get him back to sleep and I would give in because I just wanted him to stop screaming so I could go back to sleep. After just one meeting with Donna, we had our sleep plan!! The first night was tough as was to be expected as he’d lost his human dummy but with gentle techniques and lots of support for bub, we all got through it! By the second night, he was sleeping through!!!! He only awoke a few times but managed to put himself back to sleep. He now goes every night with NO FEEDS and sleeps 7 pm – 7 am!!! Parents call Donna ASAP! It’s the best money you will ever spend! To be able to function as a normal human being, not a zombie every day is priceless! My husband sings Donnas praises too because I’m a lot nicer to be around ‘2- Thank you for everything Donna, best wishes, Pia & Aaron & Archie “
“As we sit here with a baby who’s 1.5 hours into a nap for the first time ever, I’m feeling 100% grateful we made the call to Donna. Our little girl was sleeping max 45 mins a day and waking every 2 hours over night…… we were desperate!! Donna’s calm and loving approach was exactly what we needed! The support we received was more than I could have asked for! Our little girl is sleeping at least 1.5 hours in the day and a straight 12 hours at night. Donna you are our saving grace!! You have saved our little family! Thank you so much!!! ♥ “
“Donna said “trust me”, it WILL work. You just have to stick to the program. I was sceptical after 4 years of trying different programs, I didn’t think we’d ever find a solution. Donna was right! And now we go to bed each night with a glimmer of hope that we wont be woken until the morning – well, at least not by our 4 year old! Thanks Donna you have been amazing.”
“To all my friends struggling to get their bubs/toddlers/older children to sleep through the night…I can highly recommend Donna…Our life saver!!” Sara – Kaia 12 month old
“After being refused to be seen by other Sleep Constultants as my 6.5 month old was refusing both milk & solids during the day (was advised to se a paediatrician), Donna agreed to work with us. After one night, our little guy was sleeping a straight 11 hours at night and drinking and feeding during the day like a healthy 6.5 month old baby should. After spending the last 6 months with a baby who woke every 45 minutes during the night to be breast fed back to sleep, Donna gave us the confidence to break this routine and get our lives back to normal. Baby is in his own cot in his own room and my husband is back in his own bed. Thank you Donna! You’re amazing!
