Success Stories


A system that works…

Like the majority of parents of newborns I quickly adapted to the sleepless nights and accepted the bags under my eyes as the norm – until I remembered the amazing transformation Mary had on my first born, we were keen to get things started earlier with our second.

I contacted Mary when my son was 4 months old, Mary was able to give me invaluable knowledge that helped me to set up a bedtime routine and enable me to work out my sons wake windows.

When I was happy that I wanted to take things further with sleep training I contacted Mary again so was more than happy to come up with a plan with me on how to tackle our sleeping.

Knowing that Mary was there to help me and that we had a plan in place to tackle sleeping helped me tremendously, I was equipped with the knowledge I needed to help my son sleep.

I can’t thank Mary enough and will be forever grateful, although it is tough to begin with, more sleep for me helps me to be a better mum to both my children and more sleep for them means they can be the best versions of themselves!

Thank you, Mary, you’ve helped me more than I can tell you.

We used Mary Foster and she literally changed our world. Babies and toddlers change so fast and trying to figure out what the cause of why they’re not sleeping can drive you round the bend. Mary makes the whole process so much easier. She’s a mum of 3 who really gets it. She uses really gentle techniques and supports you loads.

As a first time mum, I didn’t realise how much of it was us as the parents preventing the sleep either. A tough one to swallow but all part of the learning process. After all, why should we know what all the tricks are when you’ve never done it before! My husband and I can now read our daughter and is so much better. I have several tools in our bag for when sleep goes wonky again, and it will with various illnesses and milestones etc. I have recommended Mary to a lot of people and yet to hear anything other than 100% praise. Just think of her as someone who has a genuine desire to help teach you haow to get your child to sleep and get you some rest!

We thought that it would be easier 2nd time around but our baby girl ended up being completely different to our son and a lot more clingy and demanding!

We contacted Mary as the endless rocking/ bending over the cot to rub her back etc that was required to get her to sleep was putting a lot of strain on our backs. We could be there for hours on end only for her to wake shortly after and have to go through the process again as she hadn’t yet learnt how to settle herself.

Mary suggested small changes to make and gave us information on sleep patterns and foods to give at dinnertime amongst other things. She also advised us on a gradual step down method which has worked well and barely any tears unlike some of the traditional sleep training methods. Within 2 weeks our baby girl practically jumped out of our arms into her cot as she was happy to go to sleep! It also made a big difference to her clinginess and grumpiness during the day.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mary to anyone experiencing sleep challenges with their little one.

I still cannot get over the difference in bedtime routine where I can now pop her down and she sends herself to sleep after a brief chat with herself and some leg flinging!! Such a transformation and I am so much more relaxed knowing I have an evening to catch up on things etc. It’s hard to articulate just how much of positive effect this has had on me! She really gets it now and pleased we will have a good sleep routine as she gets older. xx

He’s doing so well! I so believe the sleep begets sleep thing now. He’s sleeping more than ever before and still seems ready for bed and naps! I still can hardly believe he’s doing it! I feel great after such a big chunk of sleep, I must have got at least a 6-hour block! Thank you so much for all your help!

Oh my goodness!!! He slept through!!! Not a peep out of him after his dream feed!!!
