Tash is a qualified level 3 and level 4 baby and child sleep coach. Anyone who knows Tash, knows how much she loves babies and children to get the sleep they need. No-one needs sleep more than little ones- to cope with the day, to grow, to learn, to feel like eating, to develop, to concentrate, to enjoy, to heal, to listen and most importantly to be happy. Parents and carers also need to be well rested to function and cope with day to day life.
Tash’s daughter slept 9pm-9am from 4 weeks old and still loves her sleep now. We went through a big sleep regression at 9 months which we came out the other side of. She is now 4 and has been known to sleep 15 hours straight!
And her dear son slept 8-10 hours from 6 weeks old and slept 6.30pm-6am from 8 weeks old. (Both breastfed) This has certainly not happened by luck! He had a 4 month sleep regression, we abandoned the dummy he went back to his normal sleeping habits, he is now 2 and is sleeps 12-14 hours and has a 3 hour afternoon nap during the day.
Tash offers one-to-one sleep coaching sessions at the convenience of your own home or via Skype to help you get some much needed sleep. You do not need to live in South Wales.

Tash covers all aspects of sleep and ages, she is non-judgemental of any sleep behaviours your are practising. There is no wrong way of getting your baby/child to sleep if it works for you and your baby/child, its only if you want to move away from behaviours thats aren’t working for you, baby/child and need little help and guidance that Tash can help. Our informal chat will consist of Tash going through your baby/childs diary, background, personality, sleep problems etc and together we come up with a gentle and realistic sleep plan to optimise sleep for everyone.
For more sleep, evenings to yourself, a cuppa when they nap, an easy bedtime or less night time visitors please keep a very detailed sleep/nap/play/eat diary for 3-5 days then get in touch…..

“After having our first baby, my husband and I felt like a rabbit in headlights when sent home from hospital with this tiny, vulnerable baby we knew nothing about. Our first night home was a complete disaster. She cried and cried and we didn’t know what to do. The days and nights rolled on and we were left to just make it up as we went along, reading all the conflicting information on google. That’s when Tash came along. She visited me and was on the other end of the phone day and night and her advice and knowledge was absolute gold. She put everything in to perspective and I was blown away by her knowledge of babies and children. She taught us about the importance of sleep, routine, about babies being overtired and about the benefits of massage. By the age of 6 weeks my baby was sleeping 7pm – 2.30am – 6am and that was purely down to the advice from Tash. We now have a wonderfully well balanced and content child and I could not thank Tash enough for her ongoing support”

“So last night it feels like a miracle has happened- baby has slept through the night, 2 nights in a row! … This hasn’t happened since she hit the 4 month growth spurt! We were doing just fine until at 4 months. She was sleeping through, napping well and even settled in her own room…but went completely off track at 4m and it felt like I had a new born again.
I contacted Tash in diastraights, I was exhasted and felt like I couldn’t help my baby sleep. I didn’t have the tools to know what she wanted, I thought all this was ment to be instinctive!? Ha! well I didn’t have it so I was willing to learn if it ment I could settle this child- she could rest, I could rest and all would be right with the world again!
Baby at her worst was having 20 min naps in the day and awake every 2 hours at night. With going back to work soon I was desperate for some improvement and I’m so glad I asked for help! Tash understood totally how I was feeling and coached me on every detail of what I was doing with baby- she taught me how to look out for sleep cues and about how her awake time directly effects her sleep. I honestly could go on for pages about all the stuff Tash has taught me. I am so happy that I can understand my babies language and feel 100% confident in what I do.
Her naps are now minimum an hour, at best 2 hours-3 times a day! Unbelievable but true! She goes to bed at 6pm every night and we have a well established wind-down bath and bedtime routine. She’s been gradually lengthening how long she sleeps at night, waking but then settling herself and finally she’s doing the long stretches 6pm-6am and this morning I HAD TO WAKE HER!! Simply Amazing. All thanks to Tash. Best sleep coach, and an expert of all things baby, she knows all the secrets and tricks of the trade and I feel so well equipt now I could deal with anything baby throws at me!
Happy Well Rested Mummy!”

“I would like to thank you for all your help. I was one mama on the edge! I’d like to share my story – my new born was crying constantly (he suffers with constipation) and would not be put down so I co slept to get some sleep at night and during the day carried him in a sling so I could look after my toddler. This was fine at first but at 10 weeks I knew I could not go on like this! A friend told me about Tash, Said the massage class may help with his constipation. I could not make the classes because of my toddler so arranged a one on one appointment. Not only did she advise me on a massage that would help with the constipation but a routine to help get him into his Moses for sleep and his chair or play mat during the day. I can not believe how quickly we have seen results. On day three of the routine my little one is sleeping through the night in his Moses (waking only for feeds) and for his naps during the day plus he has been to the toilet with out the aid of laxatives. To sum up we have a much happier little man and a very happy mum. Once again a big thank you from the Fisher family”.
“I have had tash help me with my son’s sleeping and she has been great! We have gone from a baby who would only nap in my arms to a baby who settles himself to sleep in his cot usually within 10 minutes. She has always been there to help guide me if something isn’t working and for moral support. Would definitely recommend”
“Tash helped us to finally get some sleep, our son use to wake up every 1-2 hours every night and only sleep in the sling during the day. Now he sleeps in his own bed in the day and sleep through the night. Persistence was very hard and difficult at first but really paid off, Highly recommended !!! Thanks Tash”

“OMG she slept for over 2 hours, woke for a feed, had a play, yawned so we did our nap time routine, she is now asleep again. Unbelievable! Again i can’t thank you enough”
“Thanks Tash, I don’t know where we’d be without you, its still a learning process but he’s come on leaps and bounds in the past couple of weeks and its all positive”

“Well…OMG this has never happened before….. she woke at 1.30, I laid her back down and she went back to sleep! I even sat outside her room for half an hour incase she woke again but she’s still sleeping now!!! (0700) I know its the first night so maybe an epic fluke but it shows she can do it and it is possible. Im so chuffed! Nap time…i took her straight upstairs and put her in her cot, she cried for a couple of minutes so went to go back in but by the time i got to the top of the stairs it had all gone quiet, i left it 5 minutes and she had gone to sleep!! I can’t believe it, for months and months i tried doing that and she’s protested for so long, she’s still asleep now, (2 hours) Im sooooo shocked and feel like getting the gin out already!”
(17 month old Jan 2018)
“Im feeling fab today, he only woke once at 5.25am then went back til 6.15am! the best so far, he was in a lovely mood for breakfast, we are really pleased, i feel so much better than last monday in work”
(2.5 year old, Jan 2018)
“So excited this morning Tash, he slept 8.10pm-5am! No wake ups!! He got out of bed at 5am but then straight back in and slept til 6am”!!

“Tasha helped me get my 17month old baba to finally get more sleep! She had been a awful sleeper from early days and it’s been a tough 17months of no sleep! After a set plan with Tasha I followed her instructions and within weeks my Penelope has slept amazing I’m still in shock and can’t believe how she’s transformed by just making little changes to her routine! We still have the odd night and some early mornings but the difference is incredible! I’ve waited till now to write this as I haven’t wanted to jinx myself but so far the improvement is incredible! Tasha I can’t thank you enough for all your help support and advice- you’ve changed my life!
Can’t recommend Tasha enough she is amazing! I highly recommend if your having sleep issues with your baba to reach out too Tasha for some help!”

“After having Tash work her magic on my son, I can only praise her. My 8 month son was waking every 20 minutes and needed to be rocked to sleep each time and then wake every time he went in his cot. After giving her all the details she came up with a plan that worked! She gave us two options, the first was working but not quick enough for our tired minds so we went with the 2nd option which worked pretty much straight away and 7 months on he’s still sleeping 12 hours a night. I can never thank Tash enough for giving my back my sleep and sanity. If you don’t know whether having someone help you with a routine will work for you, I can honestly say try it…..its the best thing we ever did!”
