Testimonials - Little Solutions

Don't take our word for it, this is what our clients say...

“We have a very happy, contented little baby during the day, and a good sleeper, who is only getting up once a night for a feed at only 4 weeks, she really has worked wonders!”

‘We were recommended Karen by a couple of friends, and can honestly say we could not have coped for the first few weeks of our baby’s life without her! We got back from hospital rather shell shocked and really had no idea what to do with him. We have a very happy, contented little baby during the day, and a good sleeper, who is only getting up once a night for a feed at only 4 weeks, she really has worked wonders! Karen is laid back, and is so easy to have in the house. She just gets on and gets the job done. We could not recommend her highly enough to anyone who is thinking about getting a maternity nurse, to us it has been the best money spent.’

“I believe that there could be no one more suitable and professional for this line of work”

Karen is wonderful on so many levels. She is kind, honest, respectful, incredibly knowledgeable and her touch with children is magical.

Karen fitted into our household and routine as if she had known us forever and her help and diligent direction to move our daughter onto an effective routine made the first few months effortless. Karen was always delighted to answer questions even outside her working hours which provided a huge amount of help to us.
I believe that there could be no one more suitable and professional for this line of work. Needless to say we would have her back in a heartbeat.

“Absolutely fantastic service. Karen was amazing at helping us establish a really good plan to tackle our youngest’s sleep issues.”

Absolutely fantastic service. Karen was amazing at helping us establish a really good plan to tackle our youngest’s sleep issues. She took on board everything that was concerning us and tailor-made a plan to suit his age and our family structure. I cannot recommend her enough.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Karen and I can’t begin to imagine what I would have done without her help with my baby’s sleep.”

I cannot speak highly enough of Karen and I can’t begin to imagine what I would have done without her help with my baby’s sleep. Karen is compassionate and will take the time to get to know you, what’s important to you, and what you want to achieve, and completely without judgment. She is professional, honest, supportive and a great listener and I trusted her implicitly in helping me and my family. Karen’s help has changed my life and I will not hesitate to seek her advice in the future.

“After just 2 weeks of support from Karen we have a baby happy to take a bottle and last night she slept for 11.5 hours straight!”

What can I say?! Karen is superb and I would recommend her to anyone. Our first daughter slept really well and took a bottle with ease, so when number 2 arrived we thought all would be easy. Not so!
At 6 months, our second daughter was refusing a bottle and never sleeping more than 3.5 hours in one stint. After just 2 weeks of support from Karen we have a baby happy to take a bottle and last night she slept for 11.5 hours straight!
Karen is a miracle worker and at last the bags under my eyes are starting to disappear again!

“I shudder to think what we would have done without her.”

Karen saved our family by not only giving us much needed rest but by laying the groundwork and structure for us to grow our family’s healthy habits together and with confidence. She gave me the confidence to blossom into my role as a new mum.

I shudder to think what we would have done without her. She is the definition of professional, as well as a true expert, and on top of all that, she is lovely to spend time with as well. I would urge anyone who is struggling or who asks themselves if there is a better way for my child/our family, to rest assured that there is one, and it’s Karen Brown.

“Karen has helped us with all three of our boys and guidance has been invaluable”

Karen has helped us with all three of our boys & her advice and guidance has been invaluable in us having 3 happy boys, who all have different personalities and all have a similar routine. We travel a lot as a family and our boys fit into everything that we do together! Thank you Karen & Little Solutions

“We saw results more quickly than we could have imagined”

Karen helped us immensely with our 6-month-old’s sleeping problems, identifying the problematic sleep patterns we had fallen into and devising a highly personalised day and night-time plan.

By sticking to Karen’s plan, we saw results more quickly than we could have imagined and having her support on the phone and by email meant that any queries were swiftly addressed and any necessary tweaks to the plan were just as quickly made. The end result is a much happier baby boy, who is now sleeping through the night and is more settled during the day – meaning much happier (and better rested) parents too! We are simply delighted.

“Katy explained things I hadn’t realised (despite nhs and NCT antenatal classes, and 5 nights in hospital after giving birth) and things started making sense.”

With Katy’s advice I changed how I breastfed our baby and after struggling to gain weight, he instantly began gaining weight. It was miraculous. Katy explained things I hadn’t realised (despite nhs and NCT antenatal classes, and 5 nights in hospital after giving birth) and things started making sense.

Katy helped us to rest, taught us how to establish a fantastic routine, and most importantly, established improved feeding which allowed weight gain and improved the health of our baby. I really couldn’t have asked for anything better and would recommend Katy wholeheartedly.

“We’d highly recommend Lynne and Little Solutions to anyone with new-born’s”

As first time parents with twin girls, I had initially contacted Little Solutions purely to give us a full night’s sleep occasionally so we could recharge our batteries!  When we first met Lynne however, it was clear they could offer significantly more.

Lynne’s consultative approach of listening to our issues and customising the solutions turned out to be just as valuable as the overnight visits where she took care of the babies for us.  We’d highly recommend Lynne and Little Solutions to anyone with newborns.

“I was instantly relaxed with her as she interacted with both boys”

We first contacted Little Solutions having struggled with our 2 year old son for more than 6 months. He would wake 2-4 times every night & needed us to comfort him back to sleep. We were utterly exhausted & also worried he would wake our 4 year old. Lynne came to our house one Sunday evening I was instantly relaxed with her as she interacted with both boys. She also explained to them why she was here & got our 4 year old involved which was nice. She then watched our bedtime routine & gave feedback. Lynne stayed with us for 2 nights. He’s such a different boy – well rested & happy again. I honestly don’t know what we would have done without their help.

“I can’t thank Katy enough for the support she gave us and the difference she made to our lives.”

Katy came to us when our baby was 4 weeks old and we were first time parents just blindly muddling along and not getting any sleep.

I was at ease as soon as Katy arrived and she was just so lovely with the baby. On the first night Katy was with us, my partner and I had a bit of a whispered “should we be doing this?” conversation as parent guilt crept in. However, that was soon forgotten as we both fell asleep the second our heads hit the pillow and we slept confident and happy to let Katy do her thing!

I still got up in the night to express but then let Katy feed the baby (my feeding was taking so long and was so problematic that I was up for 2 hours at a time). The next morning we woke up feeling like we’d won the lottery and everything seemed manageable again.

We then really really really looked forward to Katy’s visits!

I can’t thank Katy enough for the support she gave us and the difference she made to our lives. With her help and advice by the time our baby was 6 weeks he was in asleep by 8pm and by around 12 weeks was sleeping all through the night.
