Reviews: Stories from my customers
Thanks to Elena our son now manages to sleep 12 hours at night and naps twice a day! Without her help I can imagine that we would still be rocking our baby back to sleep in the middle of the night and we would be experiencing lots of heart breaking crying every time we put him down in his cot. Now he can self soothe and settle to sleep on his own. It is a big milestone for us! Elena is very professional and patient. She helped us figure out what makes our baby wake up early and what was preventing him from sleeping. Now my baby loves his sleep! We are stress free! Thank you so much!

So my Louie is 14 months old now and as I assume with most babies and their sleep patterns he has hit troubles along the way. At 6 months Elena helped us get him through the night with a gentle technique which took only two nights to transition into 12 hour sleeps straight.
That lasted untill his first birthday where once again we called in the Genie to help with settling him at all naptimes. It’s all working swimmingly for now and I assume that will come to an end at the next development spurt when we will no doubt go calling again.

We were fortunate enough to come across Elena while struggling with a lack of sleep due to a lack of routine with our daughter of 16 months. She listened and understood our situation, offering good advice and tips unrelated to sleep training before suggesting a realistic plan we could follow.
Elena was flexible and patient with her availability throughout the process. Home life has improved noticeably with sufficient sleep and a settled routine, we would highly recommend Elena to anyone with the slightest issue connected with a child’s sleep.

My new role as a grandparent is to look after my 11 month old grandson 3 days a week whilst his parents worked. That initially was a challenge as Sam was not wanting to go to his cot for any sleeps day or night. He was otherwise a very happy smiley baby easy as long as he wasn’t being put into his cot which really was upsetting for all of us.
We contacted Elena who listened and gave guidance and support as to what we could to get Sam to sleep without cradling/rocking him in our arms till he fell asleep.
We followed her advice which was initially difficult to believe would help. We were not being consistent in our approach. After 3 days of following her sleep advice it worked. Sam will go to sleep awake peacefully at night and in his cot in my home as well during the day.
We are very grateful to Elena for her patience and help at this difficult and frustrating time.
Sam is calm and happy and so are we. Elena was honest, direct, and totally supportive of our parenting needs and instincts. I would highly recommend anyone drawn to the Sleep Lady method to consult with Elena.

We found gentle sleep genie when my son was 8 month old. At that time he was waking up 3-4 times per night, I was so exhausted and desperate and I didn’t have any energy to do anything. It was a tough time but thanks to gentle sleep genie I gained my life back and now my baby sleeps from 7pm-7am. He also naps well during the day now too! I am so happy with their service. Our sleep coach Elena Rubini is very dedicated to helping us with our baby’s sleep, she is very patient and understood our struggles, she gives us a lot of encouragement and takes the sleep patterns very seriously. Thank you so much sleep genie for fulfilling my goal.

Honestly, 3 weeks ago, we were having legitimate conversations about not having anymore kids (we’ve always wanted 3) because we were all so exhausted and miserable. Last night, my husband and I looked at each other with this realization that we CAN have more kids!! It does not have to be horrible – we can do this!! Elena helped us improve the sleep in our family dramatrically – Also improving our quality of life!
