Good morning Caroline,
Little baby Hunter is well.
I truly believe the method you set out for me works! Whenever I have
deviated slightly from the plan it is not as affective.
Hunter is in his own room and while we are renovating our room I have
set up my bed just outside his room.
I started properly on Thursday and again Hunter is now sleeping in his
cot, transferring easily, and self settling in just a few short days. WOW again.
This from a little boy who, due to the environment changes the last
few months, had reverted back to waking every two hours to feed,
sleeping in my bed and the only way to get him to sleep was talking
him for a walk in his pram!
We have experienced everything from having to pick him up after an
hour and start all over again, to placing him in his cot and not even
having to go in there while he settled in 20 minutes all by himself
protesting but not crying.
Last night he went to sleep at 7:30 stirred a little at 10:30 and
didn't wake for a feed until 12:30am. Hunter hasn't slept for 5 hours
since before Christmas.
Awake again at 2:30. Tried to settle and should have persevered but I
fed him again. He stirred at 4:15 and woke at 4:45. I settled him in 5
minutes without too much fuss. The minute I got back into bed he was
crying. He was wriggling around so I changed him, gave him a cuddle
and he went back in his cot.
He is asleep at the moment and has been for an hour and a half.
I know it is still going to take some time to have his routine working
again but I am pleased and confident we will get there soon.
He is such a sweet happy baby. Thanks to your original help I have had
the confidence to go through this process again.
Thank you again.
I've been meaning to send you an email for absolutely ages, to tell you how wonderfully both of my boys sleep now!
Chase started sleeping PERFECTLY just days after our last emails back in November and has been an angel ever since. It's amazing. He sleeps 2 hours in the morning and 1.5 or 2 hours in the afternoon. Quite often I have to wake him up after the 2 hours, and all he wants to do is roll over and go back to sleep! His night sleeps are absolutely brilliant too. We even went to Qld over Christmas to stay with family and they both slept perfectly every day and night – not a single disruption! So, thank you thank you THANK YOU for your help. I really can't thank you enough!

My angel wisdom package has now expired and I want to thank you for all your advice with regards to Milla's sleep. Milla is sleeping brilliantly and she is a happy little girl. My life is so much easier too! Everyone comments on how well she sleeps but I never imagined it could be this good back when she was little and sleeping for 20minute spurts in my arms! Your advice has been invaluable and has made such a huge difference to our quality of life.
Deb, Perth WA
Ava is sleeping beautifully now. She is in bed by 7pm and gets up somewhere between 6 and 7am for a snuggle and a breastfeed. We can't quite believe it! Even her daytime sleep is better now and she is so much more content throughout the day. It feels like your advice has pretty much saved our lives, or at the very least, has made us feel like we are actually living again!
Esther, Perth WA
"We are incredibly grateful for the guidance we received on night and day sleep for our toddler. With Caroline's guidance, we now have a sleep routine that works for our daughter, and for us. A good sleep pattern definately makes for a happy household!"
Tracy and Malcolm Perth WA
Well, it's official, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
The moment I got home from your Toilet Training Seminar at UWA, I had my daughter sitting on her NEW toilet seat and stool...which she LOVED right from the start, because I told her it was especially hers ( she felt very special) and she was completely trained by the end of the week.
This week she has been dry in the night time for 5 days and now she needs no nappy at night. I am delighted!
So THANK YOU , THANK YOU, THANK YOU Caroline
Michelle Perth WA
I had heard my Mothers Group talking about you, and was so glad I was listening. I wish I had known such a fantastic service existed earlier! Your one on one support was just what I needed to help me with my baby. I thought that by Isabella's first birthday things would settle down, but they got worse. Thankyou for showing me how to teach her to sleep well, I love watching her go to bed with a smile. Thankyou Caroline's Angels.
Melinda Melbourne, Vic
Thankyou Caroline - we are all sleeping well thanks to you!! I had tired everything to get my toddler to sleep and nothing had worked. I saw that Caroline's Angels had an Angel Halo Package and I felt that I did not need someone to come out to my home, but to support and guide me while I put in place the changes so desperately needed in our home. We were able chat on Skype to start with and then with regular emails, Max started to improve from day one. I had the confidence to tackle each step along the way until Max was sleeping in the day and ALL night every night. I was amazed at how quickly he responded and that my confidence also soon returned. He became happy Max and in turn I became happy Mum. THANKYOU!!
Alison, Sydney NSW
I'm really thankful for the help we received for our 11 month old baby needing sleep. From the very beginning, our gorgeous girls always had loads of energy and resisted sleep. Thankfully she was never a grizzly tired baby but a tired, content baby. She regularly refused naps, woke frequently and took hours to wind down to sleep. Knowing that babies need their sleep, we tried everything to get her there. As a new Mum, I felt failed because I couldn't consistenly settle my baby and help her sleep well. . I breastfed, breastfed, breastfed in an attempt to soothe her to deep sleep. All the breastfeeding was lovely but it never gave us the sleep she so needed.( and we longed for!) I am very glad that we finally made the decision to request help from Caroline when she was 10 months old. It's amazing as we now give her a cuddle, pop her down in the cot with a kiss and we walk out of the room. She happily puts herself to sleep. If you told me a month ago my baby would be doing such tricks I would have laughed in disbelief. She sleeps so well now. The advice we received from Caroline was gentle, caring and personalised. It was hard work changing our little girl's sleep , but with Caroline's help we got there. I will be forever grateful for the advice, support and encouragement we received.

"People do not believe it when I tell them that Nicholas (5 months old) has slept thru the night, the very next night after seeing you. But I do not care as I am getting a full nights sleep and every one is happy.
When I first made contact on the phone (with Caroline) I felt apprehensive about someone coming into my house and spending the whole day with me assessing my 'mothering' skills. One of the first things that Caroline did when she came to visit us is assess Nicholas to make sure that we were dealing with a sleeping issue and not a medical issue. As she is qualified, she will make sure that the baby is not crying because it has a medical condition if that is not the case then she assesses the situation and the education begins. But I must say that she were fantastic and make me feel comfortable I felt at ease as she did not judge me and made me feel positive about getting results.
The whole family is reaping the benefits from some simple steps that I was taught. I am not irritable and tired and my husband and 5 year old are happy that they now have their happy, fun loving mother and wife back.
Sometimes, it takes us mothers a while to say to ourselves that there is a problem and we need some professional help and I want other mothers to know that it is not our fault and we are not failures as a parent. It is important for all concerned that we do something about it and we all get peace and happiness for you, the baby and the family.
Caroline saved us. She can save you and your family too. It is never to early or late to learn.
From a happy, contended mother who's baby is sleeping thru the night"

We met Caroline two years ago 11 weeks after the birth of our first-born…and thank goodness we did!
Caroline’s wisdom, practical tips and support have resulted in us being able to rear our children with a gentle routine; benefitting both us a parents and our babies. Having this framework to work within, and the support along side it, truly has had long lasting and positive, effects for our family. Our eldest, now a little over two, sleeps beautifully, and our second baby (now 15 weeks) is following in her footsteps.
Having a routine has meant happy baby and happy parents – and when the hard bits arise, Caroline is at the end of the phone, or computer, to guide and support. At each challenging stage, Caroline has imparted her knowledge and experience, which has meant any potential difficulties have been quickly dealt with, so as to any avoid long-term problems.
Caroline is gentle, kind, compassionate and caring. Plus, she always makes you feel as though you are good mum with lots to offer your baby.
As always Caroline, thank you so much for your support and amazing knowledge. We would have been (and still would be) lost without it.

As with many first time parents, my husband and I weren’t sure what to expect once we were “thrown into” the unknown and complex world of parenthood. Horrified at the thought of sleepless nights for months on end, it was enough to engage the services of Caroline McMahon from Caroline’s Angels sooner rather than later.
We decided to have Caroline assist us before the arrival of our daughter Casey. With the task of setting up a nursery and knowing what’s necessary and what’s not, Caroline saved us a lot of time and not to mention, a lot of money!
Caroline’s positive reinforcement and gentle nature guided us to successfully have Casey into a settled routine within the first few weeks. By 8 weeks she was averaging 10 hours sleep a night and by 12 weeks we were enjoying her 12 hour sleeps! Finally, we had returned to a somewhat normal life where we could sit back at dinner time in peace and enjoy that well earned glass of wine together knowing that our daughter would not wake until well in to the next morning.
We have never looked back since. Casey is now 10 months old and is a confident, independent and happy little baby. We continue to hear of what we consider horror stories of babies not sleeping during the day and parents tending to their young ones throughout the night even still at two years of age – believe us it doesn’t have to be this way, especially with Caroline’s Angels help.
Belinda Perth WA
Maddie slept through the night!!! Not a peep from her until 6am this morning. I brought her into my bed thinking she wouldn’t go back to sleep anyway and she did have a little snooze for half an hour. I’m so pleased with how she went! Hopefully she’ll be just as good today.
Thank you once again
Sandra Perth WA
Thanks again Caroline – I feel so human already and not at all stressed anymore. My time with Tiana is even more precious than ever – we are both sleeping well and happy.
I will recommend your services to anyone who has a child!!! It’s the best money I’ve ever spent!
Melanie Perth WA
I needed some help with my baby, Angus, but did not feel that I needed a home visit. I took out an Angel Halo Package, and even though I was in Sydney it was so easy to work with Caroline. I was able to do a face to face video call with Skype, then was able to keep in contact with her by email as often as I needed to . This was fantastic as I could take things at my own pace with Angus, and was soon getting some great sleeps from Angus. I don't know why I waited so long to get help, it was much easier than I thought and Caroline was a huge support.
Thankyou from Angus, my husband and myself, we are all so much happier!
Sandra Sydney NSW
Moving from Melbourne to Singapore with a new baby became difficult when I could not access help with my unsettled baby. Thankyou Caroline, your Skype video call and emails gave the direction and support that I really needed to build my confidence with Grace. Being away from my family and so far from home was made easier by having regular contact with you when I needed it most. It was great to have the back up of the sleep articles to help me understand why Grace was waking and what I could do to help her sleep better.
We all sleep well every night and day now - thankyou.
I wanted to let you know how wonderfully Isobel's going. Over the weekend she napped amazingly having 2 long naps on both days as well as a short one. Her bedtime on both nights was around 6.30pm & again she slept right through! Your help & support have been a sanity saver & I'm so happy to see Issy so happy now that she's getting the rest she needs. You truly deserve to call youselves "Caroline's Angels" because you are an angel! I will be recommending you to anyone who is having sleeping troubles with their little ones because the guidance, gentle techniques & support you provided was simply amazing & I am truly thankful for all you have done for Issy & myself. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
Isobel & Shelley
I just wanted to say thank you again, Levi now just has a normal storybook in bed and is fine with us leaving with no night wakings. He woke at 5am today and was happy with a drink of water and to be tucked back in until 630 (he has a gro clock). Your advice just helped us move back to his normal sleep while helping him feel secure.
I recommend your services all the time when I meet people having sleep or routine issues its been such a help to us to have your advice. We are all happier when the babies sleep well.
Thanks again Eleri
Good Afternoon Caroline,
I hope this finds you well.
Not a day goes past without your words of wisdom in the back of my head!
Our soon Levi is now 4 1/2 months old and thriving! He sleeps through the night (with a dream feed) and has good solid sleeps throughout the day.
Your clear direction and experience has been what has given our home peace.
I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us and I look forward to dealing with you again.
We have been so blessed to have your guidance xxx
