I’m Sofie Petts-Sabine, a Child Sleep Coach and I help exhausted and frustrated parents just like you resolve your child’s sleep challenges so you can all get an amazing night’s sleep, more rest, and bundles of energy!
I’ve been transforming the lives of 1000’s of families, saving marriages (& creating a few siblings wink wink) since 2015. I’ve worked with over 1300 families one-to-one and have worked through every single sleep challenge you can possibly imagine.
I’m a Mum of two awesome, funny and incredibly smart young girls who sleep so well and hardly ever get ill. I’m convinced that their solid sleep foundation has given them incredible immunity superpowers!
But it wasn’t always this way.
I’ve done the hard yards, unwashed hair scraped up in the ‘Mum Bun’, faded joggers and last’s night’s milk and tear-stained t-shirt, pounding the streets in howling wind and rain(or seafront in my case as I live in Hove – actually) for hours getting my eldest to nap.
It broke me mentally and physically.
I was so sleep-deprived that my mental and physical health really suffered. I was anxious and couldn’t fall asleep despite being completely exhausted. I ate really terribly: High energy, sugary and fatty foods. Or I just skipped meals and sunk a few glasses of wine in the evening.
My relationship was at breaking point, sleep was all I banged on about and I cried at some point every day.
Long story short, being diagnosed with Post Natal Depression and getting help for that was the turning point.
It made me see that asking for help was not the sign of a Mum that was a failure, it was in fact quite the opposite.
So when I came across a Sleep Consultant (in one of my many middle-of-the-night Googling sessions) who had a baby just like ours, I was given the glimmer of hope that things could change if I reached out to her.
We hired her and it was the best decision we ever made. OUR LIVES WERE TRANSFORMED.
The experience was mind-blowingly positive and critically, it worked (!!!) and it became my mission to share what I’d learned and experienced with as many families as possible so that they weren’t robbed of the first year of parenting like me.
