The Sleep Sense™ Method, created by Dana Obleman has already helped thousands of parents just like you teach their children healthy sleep habits. It was my strong belief in Dana’s system that inspired me to become a professional sleep consultant, and I look forward to helping you and your family achieve the same results that my recent clients have been enjoying.

Here are some letters from them:

Layal’s approach is very useful and easy to follow. My life is much easier now after sleep training my baby. He sleeps independently now and his sleep quality improved alot. He sleeps through the night and this allows me to sleep well as well. Thank you Layal for your guidance and support.

Mai M. / UAE

I remember delaying getting the program several times; just because I thought I knew what to do with my second child. But having experience with one baby, doesn’t mean we know everything!

William was 15 months, he refused his crib, wanted to co-sleep, waking up every 30 minutes. He was always cranky, constantly crying, and we were simply drained! I remember I was so afraid to start, I was terrified of failing; And I also remember hearing Layal speak about our objectives & thinking to myself “This is Far from ever happening!”.

But we did it! William turned out to be an amazing sleeper. The whole house is now rested. My husband & I get to have smooth nights but most Importantly, William is a Happy Baby! So happy and proud to have achieved this :)

Amanda Ch./ Leb

We just completed the sleep training program. It is a blessing and Layal is an amazing person to work with.

My baby is 8 months old who was waking up every 1-2 hours to feed and was rocked to sleep. Within few days of starting the sleep training program,
Ibrahim weaned off overnight feeds, started to sleep through the night, and he is having better naps during the day.

Layal supported and guided us through out the program; her tips and phone calls made everything easy for my child and me.

The most important thing in this program was that Ibrahim learned an essential skill that is putting himself to sleep “independently”.

Thank you Thank you Thank you, Layal. You are a baby sleeping Magician!

I was utterly underprepared bringing my newborn twins home, while we had plenty of matching outfits it had completely slipped me to prepare for sleep. With my 3yo daughter still sleeping in my bed, the first few nights were catastrophic. I wish I had reached out to Layal sooner, gotten my older daughter sleep trained before birth and set the twins up for success from the beginning. Working with Layal, we first managed to teach my older daughter to sleep in her bed, not an easy task but Layal supported me through the process and it worked! We then built on this success with the twins, who now sleep independently ~11-12h at night and take two great naps a day at 6 months. As a bonus we dropped the pacifier and night feeds completely, giving me the peace I need as a full time working mom. Layal’s program works and while the first few nights are tough, she is right there supporting and cheering mom on!

Thank you and if I have another baby you will be one of the first calls I make!

Hanna W. / Bahrain

I would like to thank you for the best stage in our life as a parents to help us in my Daughter’s sleep training. I think it’s the best achievement we have done in this year.

We thought it was impossible to do it but I can say now it was piece of cake because of you. Thank you for the hard work , efforts , patience you have shown through all this journey .

I wish you all the best in your career.

Rana K. /Qatar

Layal gave me the confidence I needed to believe in my 8 month old daughter. I just couldn’t think that one day she would be able to fall asleep by herself and I was always feeling really anxious before putting her to sleep, I was waking up many times during the night and trying to breastfeed or rock my baby to sleep.

Let me tell you that I started seeing positive results on the 2nd night! I was absolutely amazed! It was like magic, and all of this thanks to Layal’s guidance, support, tips and advices. Now my little one sleeps independently, in less than 10 minutes and throughout the night. And I think she enjoys it 😊 Thank you a thousand times, Layal!

Nadia A./ KSA

I highly recommend Layal’s sleep training program, as it’s very smooth and effective. I have never imagined that my baby will be able to sleep independently and if she wakes up at night to go back to sleep by herself , which happened thanks to Layal. I advise parents who are struggling with their babies sleep not to think twice and do the program.

Petra Z. / UAE

I am extremely grateful to you Layal for all you support, ideas and patience! I wish we hadn’t waited so long to connect with you.

I am a mother of 11 months twin boys that used to sleep in my room and to wake up more than 5 times at night! I had to breastfeed/ sooth them back to sleep which took a lot of time and all my energy!

I had finally had enough and contacted Layal. I honestly can not believe how far we have come since those nights. I did not think it

was possible, specially that they used to wake each other up, but with Layal’s plan and daily contact to keep us on track we finally did it! My twins now sleep in their own room, have 2 naps daily, and they are sleeping INDEPENDENTLY 11 hours a night!

It is truly amazing!We can’t thank you enough Layal for all your help and support!

Soha I./ UAE

Layal helped us a lot. Although we had to stop the process in the beginning due to personal reasons, almost a year later she was still willing to support us.

It was a very smooth journey, Layal is so encouraging and present. She follows up on everything and gives proper guidance. Our little girl sleeps all the night now with no awakenings and all by herself.

Thank you so much 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Nour O./ Leb

Our sleeping journey with the help of Layal was fantastic. Our 4 years old daughter had difficulties in sleeping, putting her to sleep was a nightmare, it took us at least 2 hours to have a bed routine, she would wakeup in the middle of the night and come to our bed. I reached out to Layal and she had put a plan for us to follow and we did follow it day by day and saw progress from the first week. Now my daughter sleeps independently, she never wakes up in the night anymore and our goals are fully achieved.


Lulwah AJ. / KSA

I have tried many sleep trainings before and all of them failed, then after being very desperate i decided to call layal and book for a free 15 min call. Layal worked with me closely and dedicated her time to set a customised schedule and fix sleeping issues for my baby.

She followed up with me on daily basis and support me in every situation. She was very cooperative and my life now is more organised and i have more time for me!! I just want to thank you for all your guidance and patience.

Marise T./ Lebanon

Sleep training our daughter with Layal’s help was the best decision we made as new parents! It was truly LIFE CHANGING!! My daughter is much happier when she’s awake now because she has a restful sleep and we are sleeping through the night.

My daughter was waking up frequently at night and nursing to sleep. During the day, she was nursing to sleep and taking very short naps, which was exhausting!
When Layal said that we will be able to put baby in the crib, say good night and she will sleep independently, I thought to myself this is too good to be true. But, it turned out to be true!!
Layal was very supportive and knowledgeable. She helped us through every step. We are very grateful for her help!

If anyone is reading this testimonial and hesitating about sleep training with Layal, don’t hesitate and go for it!! It was truly the best thing we did for our little one!

Lama B. / Canada

I want to tell you that by the end of the program I would to thank you a lot for your support …really you helped me and you changed our lives.

My baby was 7 months waking every 2 hours sometimes every 30 mins to feed to go back to sleep even with pacifier. Now he is a completely different boy…from day 1 he slept all night, the program was very smooth not what I expected …the best part that I put him and he sleep without crying and when he wakes up, he just smiles and sing really it is a completely different life …I can focus now during the day, I can play with him because I slept also …now he is 9 months and 1 week and he slept with no effort , he knows the time to sleep and it is really comfortable for both of us!

Even he gets sick 2 times but nothing changed the routine and the program. thanks for your effort and your support all along the program and even before! Good luck in your job to help all family around the world!

Suzane K. / Leb

My one year old used to wake up every one hour and a half at night. Needless to say, I was exhausted and couldn’t function properly as a mother of two. That’s when i decided that I needed to do something about it. I found Layal after a desperate google search during one of those endless sleepless nights.

Layal gave me a wonderful sleeping plan that was gentle for the baby and fit my parenting approach. I was indeed terrified that I would let my baby cry for too long and would “damage” him psychologically. She explained to me that I would stay next to him during the process which gave me the reassurance I needed to go through the plan.

Unfortunately, after one week through the plan, my baby caught Covid and we had to put a stop to it. Layal was so understanding and wonderful she patiently waited for us to be ready to jump back on the train and gave me advice on how to proceed during sickness. She was even willing to start the plan all over again. That’s how much she cared about getting the appropriate results. Throughout the process, she followed up with me thoroughly and answered all my questions and concerns.

My baby sleeps through the night now and does his naps. He is so refreshed and his mood has improved significantly (so did mine 😊). Sleeping is no longer an issue but rather a pleasant moment for us.

Thank you Layal for the amazing support and service. You made one family happier and healthier ❤️ So grateful we found you ⭐️⭐️

Tania M./Leb

The sleep training program with Layal was a life changing magic to us. My son did not have an effective bedtime routine and had difficulty falling asleep independently in his own bed. We were stuck into the co-sleeping habits which negatively affected the sleep quality time of both of us. We used to read a lot about different sleep training techniques that I was unable to stick to with consistency in order to notice any improvement. Layal’s support and guidance helped us smoothly transition between phases to achieve our goals. It was not easy the first few days but after two weeks my son is now able to sleep independently in his own bed. His naps improved and can sleep through the night. Thank you so much Layal, for your positivity, support and motivation. Much appreciated!

Jihan BS./Leb

I don’t know where to begin. My life was going downhill, from sleepless nights to zombie days.
I felt like my life ended and I will never see sleep again.

My daughter was 4 months and 2 weeks old when I decided to contact Layal and help with training my baby. I was desperate. I was not skeptical, instead I was afraid, because I thought that sleep training involved lots of crying and my heart couldn’t handle that at that stage.

One meeting with Layal on Zoom, and boom my confidence and trust levels boosted. Her professionalism, knowledge, softness and kindness all helped me decide to move forward with the training immediately.

Layal was not only a coach to me but became like a friend, a rock who was there always every step of the way, answering any question I had, calming me down and reassuring me that I made the right decision for my daughter.

From 2 hours of sleep at night and consecutive crying and carrying and pacifier replacements, we went to 11-12 hours straight of sleep at night for my daughter at FOUR months old, and 3 naps during the day ON TIME and completely sleeping independently by night 4-5 of training.

It is the best decision I took in my entire life and I recommend Layal to anyone willing to improve their child’s sleep. Her method is gentle and gradual but surely guaranteed.

One advice I can give all the moms is to be PATIENT and WILLING to sacrifice 2 weeks out of their life and dedicate it fully to the training Layal gives you.

It is only 2 weeks for the rest of your life and baby’s full night sleep. I sleep 8-9 hours straight at night, I am happy and mentally healthy to play and raise my daughter during the day now.

I love you Layal, and I will be back with my future babies. You are the best sleep coach and best decision we made!

Luana B./ Leb

Life changing results.

Kaïa, my nine month old baby was waking up every hour and at some point she would wake up almost every fifteen minutes to take sips of water and sleep again but it was exhausting for me. I really wanted my baby to sleep all night in order to develop well. I also needed to sleep all night so I can go to school and teach properly. Layal was recommended by several friends and colleagues and she was the only hope I had for change to happen. I guarantee, you will be shocked by the quick positive effect this program has. I highly recommend Layal if your baby is not sleeping well. I am also enjoying my baby’s bedtime routine.

Much love and appreciation,

Nesrine N. /Leb

Layal has taught us how to allow and give the chance for our baby to soothe himself. She taught us what is safe and what is not, what is normal and what is not. She was there whenever things got tough to support us in this journey and encouraged us to keep going. She had made a huge impact on our child’s sleep, he can put himself now to sleep, soothens himself when he wakes up and most importantly is sleeping 11-12 hrs…so are WE!


Zeina A./Germany

Layal was a gift sent from God! With a busy work/study schedule I was so excited to start sleep training my baby. Zayd was almost 6 months when we started. He relied on me to rock him to sleep. He would only sleep in my arms. His naps during the day were unpredictable and never longer then half an hour.

Now, I’m so excited to share that he has a fixed schedule and puts himself to sleep without crying. I feel like I finally have my life back.

Moysassar T./ UAE

To all the mums out there who are struggling with their babies not sleeping all night, I recommend you give this experience a shot and you will never regret.

Thank you Layal for changing my life.

Zainab C. / Leb

Working with Layal was the best decision we’ve ever made! We were desperate, sleepless, and lifeless. We never had a full night sleep since a year and a half! We couldn’t go out fearing that my son will wake up any second. Four to five night feedings were our worst nightmare. We couldn’t be productive at work and during the day because of lack of sleep. We even took shifts at night! It was tragic. Thank you Layal for teaching us that our toddlers have no control over us 😂. My son feels great. He’s sleeping the whole night for the first time in his life, but i came to conclusion that sleep training is done for the benefit of parents and not children 😋. We feel good, energetic, less stressed, and more patient. I advice all tired and sleepless mothers to give it a try with Layal to have a healthy happy relationship with yourself, your baby and your partner.

Jessica K./Leb

Our 1 year old had issues putting himself to sleep and sleeping throughout the night where he used to wake up between 4 to 6 times. This has changed with Layal’s help. In less than 2 weeks, our son is now able to put himself to sleep and actually sleep throughout the night. We’re very satisfied with the results as this means a healthy lifestyle for our son. Layal was very helpful and caring throughout the process. We are really grateful for her guidance and support. We recommend parents who struggle with their children’s sleeping habits to talk to Layal and try her magic touch! Thank you Layal!

Rana M/ Leb.

“I am a mother of 3 years old twins. A couple of weeks ago, no one in my family was getting enough sleep. The twins never slept all night, always needed me to fall asleep, woke up multiple times at night, sometimes for hours! They also made a habit during the last months of coming to our bed every night which meant poor sleep for everyone.

Everyone around me told me they will finally sleep at different milestones: 1st birthday, after weaning from breastmilk/bottle, 2nd birthday…well 3rd birthday was coming and I no longer believed in magical transformation when they turn 3 years old!

Then I met Layal and heard about her work. I had my doubts for sure, it was too good to be true but I am here to tell you it is true! She is a life saver! The program is full of information, gentle yet effective. Layal is kind, informative and knows what should you do in every possible situation. She is the expert you need to teach your kids how to sleep.

Now my kids fall asleep on their own, in their beds, alllll night long! Don’t hesitate to contact her if your kids have sleep problems and don’t wait for them to magically disappear because most probably they won’t!”

Kawthar A. /Leb

Working with you Layal was the best decision we have ever made for our son and our family.
You have changed our lives, all of us.

I remember my Son’s biological clock was at its worse coming back from Canada with major time zone differences. He had acquired a co-sleeping habit and a pacifier! We were Desperate!!!

Our case was specific and yet you accepted the challenge with all the confidence of the world!

Our son is now a sleeping champion. I never in my life thought that he would ask us to go to bed all by himself.
Surprisingly enough he interrupts a Play date for his nap or even bed time.
He literally asks his friends to leave by waving 👋 and blowing 😘 es! 🤣
This was the best thing that ever happened us. You made us all HAPPPYY Layal!

At first we were in doubt and yet your confidence made us believe in you and trust you. The thing I loved the most about this whole experience is your dedication to our family to an extent that at a certain time we felt you are part of our household. Your follow up was heartwarming and as personalized as it could be!

Layal I did the training a year ago and Malek started school yesterday, believe me I teared when I saw his punctuality in sleeping and waking up super energetic and ready for his nursery days!

A year later I tell you we are still being rewarded for this little decision that we made that turned out to be not too little at all but rather life changing!
We love and admire you a lot! ❤

One very last yet very important thing to mention, because of what you taught us with Malek, we could help my newborn into having good sleeping habits accompanied by a little guidance from your end.

It was a skill you taught us all! WE THANK YOU for the bliss of “SLEEPING”!

Lama I. / Leb

The sleep training journey with you was the best thing I’ve done to myself! The feeling to be backed up by an expert had a huge impact on my confidence that I’m doing the right thing for my baby.
I tried some sleep training techniques but I stop them before they even show any results when I see Saud ( my baby) upset, thinking that this might not be the best for him.
The best decision I took this year was that instagram link click to schedule a consultation appointment with you in the middle of an exhausting night. After that, everything went flawlessly and without having a second thought we started the training together ❤️
Thank you so much for giving me the tips to enjoy such a tireless nights.

Sara M./ KSA

I thought sleeping the whole night was impossible until I started working with Layal and started the program. People used to laugh ridiculously when I shared with them that I will start working with a sleep consultant to teach my son how to sleep. Thinking that waking up at night is okay and that it will stop as he grows up. On the contrary, that caused a lot of sleepless, stressful, and unhappy nights. Now three weeks in, my son sleeps through the whole night and when he wakes up he knows how to put himself back to sleep independently. At first it wasn’t easy at all, however Layal showed full support. She is full of positivity. Her calmness makes you forget how hard it is and gives you hope to reach your goal. Layal showed full support especially when I was emotionally down. It is the BEST decision I made for my family. I never thought this was possible. No words are enough to thank you Layal. Thank you for the hard word, feedback, support, motivation, and positivity. Layal you are a life savior. You are a gem. I truly appreciate it.

Marwa S. / Leb

Hi Layal,

To be honest, we were skeptical to pay this much money to “sleep train”. We really thought our baby needed to be up because he was hungry and needed to feed. I also genuinely thought it I should follow my son’s lead on the sleep matter and hoped he would be able to sleep on his own at some point.

Before we reached out to you, we were waking up at least 3- 4 times at night which and had to take shifts during the day who will carry him and walk around to put him to sleep. We were exhausting and really dreaded every nap and bedtime moment.

I wanted to take the time today and thank you for teaching us the skill of independent sleep. You gave us our time, energy and most importantly our SLEEP back. We finished few weeks ago with you and up till now when we put him down and he naps, we look at each other in surprise and say it was worth every penny.

So thank you.
Em Noah 🙂

Sirar J. / Bahrain

Reaching out to Layal was the best decision we made!

My son, who is now 8 months old, was waking up every 1-2 hours, for us, a 3 hour stretch was a lucky night.

At night, he would only go back to sleep if he was breastfed (even if not hungry!) For his naps and bedtime, he would only sleep if he was rocked or breastfed and his bedtime never started at 7pm. It was really really hard to put him to sleep at night, he resisted so much.

His naps were mostly 30 mins-45 mins long maximum.

After implementing Layal’s sleep training program, he started sleeping independently at 7 pm and sleeping through the night after only 3 nights of training. I got my sleep back after 7 months of really bad nights. His naps got so much better that I am still not used to that free time during the day.

I am so happy I stumbled upon her page on Instagram, she really changed my life and her plan works like magic. We achieved what we thought was impossible!

Lynn H. / Leb

Best and hard period of my life,
I have been struggling for 6 months with my baby. He used to wake up every hour or max 2 hours at night and barely sleeps during the day. Fortunately, Layal gave us hope and confidence. She believed in us and in the program. Yes, it was hard the first 3 days. To be honest extremely hard but after talking to Layal and sticking to the program I learned not only to help my baby be independent sleeper but also to say no to the family whenever it’s needed.

Layal I don’t know how to thank you because with your help, I found time to sleepppppp, work and really enjoying my time with my baby.

Stephanie S. /Leb

Layal is a life saver. A magician. Really ! Before I started the plan for my 7-month old son, he used to wake up every hour and wake my 2-year old daughter up with him and night sleeping was a complete nightmare ! When Layal mentioned the goals of independent sleepers, I thought it was the dream and would never happen to me. After only 3 days, my son slept through the night. After a week, he slept by himself. Until now (7 month later), I kiss him goodnight, put him to bed fully awake, he sings himself to sleep and sleeps through the night.
I HIGHLY recommend Layal to anyone with a baby who doesn’t sleep well

Angela A. / Leb

Hello Layal
I can’t thank you enough for the major change your program brought to our family. When we contacted you we were desperate and thought our son’s bad sleeping habits cannot be changed. Finally we got some sleep with Majd ( 1 year and a half). Your program worked like magic from the very first night with all the support and the detailed program you provided us with. Majd is a happier baby and he is having uninterrupted night sleeps. The program not only impacted Majd’s sleeping habits and mood but it also affected all of us, We are a happier healthier family thanks to your program.
Lots of love

Ghada . K/ Leb

Dear Layal,

First, I would like to thank you for helping me during these difficult times, your help has been invaluable. Riad achieved his goals in a short time !! And this is amazing ! I thought it was the hardest thing to do (sleeping independently), but you have really helped things run smoothly.

Also, I want to thank you for taking the time to answer my questions (too many questions) . You’ve been right there, helping out, listening, and supporting.

I really appreciate the information you have provided me with. They are helpful and answer a lot of questions !

We couldn’t have done it without you !

A big thank you from us (Riad and me).

Hesniyah M. / France

When we first started I was on the fence about this and I had my doubts but I truly believe working with Layal was the best decision I made for the whole family. Even though this is my second child, this was my first experience with sleep training but Layal walked me through it and was always a whatsapp message away which really made all the difference. We started seeing results within days.
It was a dream come true for my husband and me!

Razan S. / Netherlands

Doing this sleep training with Layal was a VERY important step to teach our 11 months baby independent sleep in the right way, we couldn’t have done it without her!
She helped me first to be consistent and guided me to achieve my goals till the end of the program.
From only the 3rd day we started seeing a big difference in our baby sleep during naps and bedtime without our help!
Helping baby independent sleep is a must in my opinion,I advise every parent to do it.
I can’t thank you enough Layal :)

Maguy C. / KSA

Hello Layal,
I cannot describe how thankful i am for your help. For a year my son used to wake up 4 to 5 times a night. I was so tired during the day and could not focus on my job and my other child.
At fist I was sceptic and I thought what if might not work. How can someone who doesn’t know me or my child help me. After our first Zoom meeting I felt extremely comfortable and relieved. Layal told me it would take 10 days. After just 4 days my life changed and my son and I could finally have a good night sleep. He sleeps now 11to 12h every night without waking up.
I am so thankful for everything Layal.

Thanks for getting my life back to normal.

Myriam M. a Happy Mom

Myriam M. / Leb

If anyone makes magic in the most dedicated, gentle way possible, it is Layal! Lana is my second child, I had no sleep for 9 full months, breastfeeding the whole night, literally waking up every 1 hour or two max and add to that lovely reflux! It was all sorted out by my decision to sleep train and night wean after discussing it with the pediatrician who is super pro-breastfeeding, but also pro-baby’s well being and mom’s sanity to both have a good rest at night.. Layal went over and beyond, with explaining the plan, following up, checking on Lana and myself and always offering more than I could’ve even imagined. And guess what! Lana was able to have a full nighter starting night two! Honestly we did have ups and downs because it’s only normal, but now I know how to manage them. Aaaaaand finallyyy I have some time for myself at night, a much much better good night sleep than I could’ve ever imagined, aaand a well rested happy baby! Thank you Layal for doing what you do, saving lives.
Thank you for being you!

Amena K. / Leb

I cant thank u enough!
My 13 month old son used to wake up every 1 hour , breastfeeding , singing and rocking him back to sleep. It was such a struggle every single night. When I started the sleep plan with Layal, my baby is sleeping all night (11-12 hrs) by himself in his own room ! having a long nap up to 3 hours. I never though that this could happen. But Thanks to Layal, her hard work , encouraging talks and guidance we were able to reach what all moms dream of having. Really such a life saver.
Thank u Layal, the ultimate BEST!

Malak S. / Leb

Thank you so much for helping us get some sleep, finally! When we first contacted Layal, we were quite sceptic and thought it would be impossible to change our sons habit. A few days in the program, and we were already convinced that it was our best decision with regards to our son (13 months). He used to have short naps, interrupted night sleep, co-sleeping and he now sleeps much longer naps, sleeps full nights and completely by himself in his own room!

Donia Y. / UAE

Hello Layal,

I can’t thank you enough for your help and support during the last 3 weeks. Working with you was definitely one of my best decisions i have ever made. At the start, I was not sure how this will work with my boys (5 years and 2.7 yrs). However, Layal provided confidence, detailed plan and support to make this happen! I’ve to say this turn like a magic at the end of the 3rd Week, my boys started sleeping on time by themselves and the most important is all night.

Layal, thank you very much 😊

Diana J. / Congo

I had a friend whose baby had the same sleeping problems as my child. She tried the Sleep Sense program with Layal and it all worked out amazing! I couldn’t believe what she was telling me, so I had to try for myself. Before trying the program, my 7 months old baby would wake up as much as 18 times at night. I would nurse to sleep, rock him, give him pacifier every time he woke up. After nursing him at night, I would hold him upright for 30 minutes before putting him down because he has reflux. I didn’t think we could accommodate a good sleeping habit with my baby’s reflux….turns out I was wrong! Layal helped make it happen. After the first night, my baby boy had already dropped his night feed, and woke up only once. The fourth night into the program he completely stopped waking up at night. He became an independent sleeper really fast. I recommend the program to every mother who is desperately trying to help her baby sleep better. My boy now is well rested during the day, he is laughing more, eating better…he is a happy baby with a happy mom!

Rasha D. /leb

Taking Layal’s sleep training program was one of the best decisions I made. My daughter was 5 months old and only slept by being rocked and held till she was in deep sleep, often waking the moment we put her in the crib and repeating the whole process. From exactly the second night of the program, she now sleeps independently at bedtime with no fuss in less than 10min! From the 5th night, she consistently sleeps 11hrs uninterrupted dropping her night feed. I couldn’t be happier, Layal thank you for this priceless gift and your never ending support/encouragement that pushed me through it.

Rima S. /Leb

What I like about Layal as a sleep consultant is her flexibility, objectivity and empathy. I came to Layal with my family’s sleep challenges assuming she would tell me the plan won’t work unless I move my children to their own separate room first, which as a co-sleeping and breastfeeding on demand advocate I wasn’t ready yet to do nor was it logistically possible back then. So I challenged her.

At that time, my children were 5.5 and 2.10 and were sleeping in their own beds in our bedroom. My son slept through the night before he completely weaned, but it wasn’t the same with my girl who kept waking up at night for months after weaning and the frequency of the wakings increased until we found ourselves face to face with night terror episodes that would last up to an hour. This started to affect my son’s sleep, not to mention my own intermittent sleep for the preceding 5 years, which I was not ok with anymore.
I just wanted them to fall asleep on their own in the room we already share without staying by their side anymore and for my daughter to sleep through the night without waking up and sometimes staying awake in the middle of the night. Layal rose up to the challenge!

Empathizing with me, Layal went far and beyond to come up with a customized plan that would work specifically for my situation respecting my attachment parenting beliefs without judgment. She promised that after 16 nights I would kiss my children goodnight, leave the room and they would sleep on their own. I was shocked to see the plan working before the end of the 16 nights and I saw drastic changes after just the third night!
The real test was 2 months later when my husband got Covid-19 and had to isolate. They suddenly had to move out. Realizing how hard the situation was on them, I co-slept again until I felt we were ready to do that transition of sleeping alone in their own room and we did. I thought I had to start from scratch again but in fact it was so much easier because they already acquired that independent sleep skill.
From our family to yours Layal, a big thank you!

Najwa N. / Leb

Life changing experience! Thank you Layal for all the support, for teaching us how to deal with our baby sleeping issues. We were desperate and we couldn’t believe that our baby will sleep through the night anytime soon or that his naps will be longer than 30 mins during the day; untill we started the sleep plan with the best sleeping consultant. The 2nd day he slept the whole night and on the 10th day our baby learned how to sleep alone! Yes it was a miracle 😀 After 3 weeks we went for vacation to our home town and all the family got Corona our baby was very sick and of course he was sleeping next to me again back to rocking and feeding to sleep, I thought that all our effort of teaching him was lost but again when we got back home and to our routine and our baby to his room, I repeated the plan very briefly and he is now back to sleeping on his own and taking his naps fully. Thank you again Layal! Much love from my family to yours.. Good luck ❤️

Working with you Layal was life changing; I thank you for your professionalism and support in helping us and our 14 months old son. You have truly empowered me to train my son to sleep independently. We were dealing with so many bad sleep habits and to a certain extent I was doubtful it can be reversed. I have learned how much children can adapt and that we only need to be equipped with the right technique, self-confidence and persistence to make extraordinary changes.

Working with Layal was definitely one of the best decisions I ever made for my twins! My 14 month old twin girls were waking up 10 to 12 times each night along with a two hour wake up every night from 1 till 3 am. They had too many sleep ‘crutches’ and bad habits to be put to sleep like rocking, bouncing, pacifier, sleepyhead, it really was a nightmare every night. I didn’t think there was a solution especially with twins but Layal’s technique was by far life changing! On the 3rd night my daughters woke up just once and by the 4th night they were sleeping 12 hours straight! I couldn’t believe it! Now we are 3 weeks in and the whole family is so much happier and well rested all thanks to you! Layal you made such an impact in our lives, we will be forever grateful! Every sleepless mother should not hesitate; buying the gift of sleep is the best money you can spend for the health of your child and yourself!

We want to thank you for everything you did for us. Doing the sleep sense program for our 9mths old was one of the best decisions we ever made in life! It was truly a life changing experience!! Our daughter was sleeping so poorly through the night and her naps were so irregular. She was so stubborn I didn’t expect for the program to start showing great results from day 2 and 3! We were astonished. Although like everything in life we faced some minor challenges like getting her to sleep for longer naps… we got through it all with your help and now our baby is an amazing sleeper! Not only is her sleep so much better but her daily routine and bedtime routine is now also very well organized and systematic.. and we get so much more free time for ourselves. We are truly very grateful and happy :)

Best of luck with everything!

Dear layal,
Thank you so much for your help. I appreciated so much the sleeping training for my baby. It took a bit of time, but with consistency the result was successful. Now not only she is sleeping well all night, she’s also looking forward heading to bed at her sleeping time.

Hey Layal,
My only regret is not seeking your help earlier. You literally changed my life, after months of burn out, I’m finally able to sleep peacefully  and my baby’s energy and appetite during the day are so much better. I hesitated a lot before joining the program because I’ve had already tried everything with zero improvement.
What you did was first motivating me to make efforts for only 10 more days, second organising everything I tried in a clear program to follow with extra important suggestions and third follow up to keep me on track. Before the end of the program, my baby slept through the night, just like that and it was worth every penny.
Thank you Layal

My 9 month old baby was waking up every 1.5-2 hours and can’t go back to sleep unless she is breastfeed or rocked..we were super tired and my baby was starting to have dark circles from lack of sleep!!!

After talking with Layal and start with her program my baby dropped all her night feeding from day one..yes you heard that right..can’t believe it also hhh😅..in just few days she started to sleep around 11 hours at night and she is soo calm and happy during the day… Layal let us have our life back and enjoy every single moment with our baby..

Can’t thank you enough for all the support you made..it’s worth it..much love from my family to you❤

At first, I thought the idea of self sleep for my baby was impossible considering the stage I have reached with her, which was nurse to sleep and Co sleeping. Things suddenly got out of hand and I didn’t know how to fix it.. I heard about Layal and I said I will give it a try (but honestly didn’t think it would work on my baby) but then once I started the sleeping plan, I was already AMAZED and satisfied from the first night! So just imagine the end result! This is truly a therapy plan, it doesn’t only help your baby but it helps mommys as well to regain their life and sanity! This was one of the best decisions I made for my family. It was a blessing to find such a service with such a great supportive coach! I would definitely highly recommend it to every suffering mom with her child’s sleep, I haven’t stopped talking about my experience as I feel im on cloud 9 with what I have seen..

Thanks layal for helping our family, ur a blessing! All the luck

In addition, I’ve also included some letters written in by parents who have used Dana’s Sleep Sense™ Method in their homes so that you can see what they had to say:

Dear Dana,

I just want to share that I am THRILLED with your program! We are now into the 2nd month and even in the very beginning he is sleeping 11-12+ hours straight through the night!

He has learned to put himself back to sleep and we never thought that would happen, it has been simply amazing! We used to be the parents who got no sleep, now our friends are jealous that he sleeps so many hours through the night and their child doesn’t!I brag to EVERYONE about how well he sleeps and that we have a life again!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I never dreamed I would sleep through the night for 8 hours again! You are awesome!

– Stephanie


Why didn’t we try this sooner?! As we speak he is sound asleep in his crib – and has been since 7.15 pm. We are so pleased to get the evenings to ourselves again, and Tinius – who has always been a very happy boy – is even more happy now. It is now obvious to us that he didn’t get enough sleep before and that our difficulties getting him to sleep in the evenings were due to the fact that he was overly tired. Now we follow your advise on bedtime routines and everything else we learned from the sleep Sense program and are happy to say that your success rate is still 100% :-).

– Karianne, Jarle and Tinius Wanggaard


I would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to you. Your system is well explained and well researched and has worked wonders in our house. It is like Hana is saying ‘Thank You Mammy – i really needed this’, she is so happy since we began. We tell her it is ‘Sleepy Girl Time’ she knows what that means now and tucks her head into her blankey when we say it to her, ready for bed. She is so clever. We are going to stick to it for her sake and like the other parents you mentioned we are delighted with the time together we have now.

So once again, Thank You – keep doing what you are doing,

Hi Dana,

It is 10 to 7 on this lovely Spring evening and Joshua is sleeping soundly in his cot as he did last night and the night before for 10-12 hours. He always slept well to begin with but when he was unwell and the teething started it all went wrong. We did what we thought was the right thing to do at the time but soon realized that Joshua had developed a whole new routine – one that involved not going to sleep at night and then waking up several times a night for a bottle!!

Thankfully, your Sleepsense plan put us all back on track and we hopefully will never look back.

Many thanks again and good luck in all that you do.

– Toni Taylor

Hi Dana,

Since getting onto your sleep sense program, Beau has been an angel. It was hard going for about a week or two when we first started, but now he goes to bed without hesitation and sleeps well through the night. It was a blessing to my husband and I.

We have regained our lives- slightly anyway and are back in the land of the living because of the sleep we now get in the night and a bit of a rest in the day. Thanks for your help. i have also put so many friends onto the program too and they all rave about it.

– Trev and Beau


I wanted to thank you for the Sleep Sense program. Things have been hectic at our house (contractors all over the place doing loud work during the day), so naptime has been challenging. But we implemented some things we learned from the Sleep Sense program at bedtime, and what a difference!!!

We’re only on the fourth night, but already Megan has developed her own self-soothing techniques, falling asleep on her own albeit with some crying, waking only once to eat during the night and putting herself back to sleep on her own with her other nightwakings.

My husband and I are so happy to have a long stretch of sleep again! Thank you so much. We still have some work to do regarding naps, but we’ll get there. Thanks again and take care.

– Christy Murra


I followed all of your instructions and my 2-year old was sleeping through the night (in his own room) in less than a week. The first couple of days were terrible. He would come into our room about 15 times per night. He also threw terrible tantrums which included emptying the contents of his dressers and removing his mattress from his bed!

However, by Day 3 we started seeing positive progress. I don’t have to tell you what a difference it has made in our household. We are all sleeping again and my son’s overall disposition has improved. He was always a good boy but because he was tired, he would act out at times. I am happy to report that he has stopped throwing tantrums entirely and he seems generally happier and more secure.

I have referred you to six friends and I will continue to refer you to others having sleep issues. THANK YOU!!!!!!!

– Christie O’Toole


I cannot thank you enough for giving me the gift of sleep! Two days before my son turned 9 months old, I was at my wits end and felt like I was on the verge of a breakdown. I had not had more than 4 hours straight of sleep in a year, and was truly exhausted. It affected my home life, my relationships with friends, and especially the quality of my work at my job.

My son had never slept more than 5 or 6 hours straight, but at 6 months old he began to wake up every 3-4 hours. I honestly thought he was just hungry, but didn’t realize I was setting him and myself up for sleep failures. Well, he is now 9 months old. As of last night, which was night # 8, on your sleep program, Christian slept for 10 1/2 hours straight! He woke up one time, cried for about 30 seconds, and was back asleep before I could even open my eyes to check the time. By night 3, he was sleeping 9 hours, which was amazing to me. Because I was so accustomed to waking up throughout the night, I can’t even sleep past 4:30 am now, but I know that it will take some time for my body to realize that it can truly rest again.

Thank you for giving me my me-time back in the evenings, for giving me sleep back at night, and for teaching me how to be a better parent. We are all much happier now, and I am even back to working out in the mornings while Christian sleeps. At this point, I am telling EVERY parent that I know about your program. It was well worth every cent and more! God bless you!

Hi Dana,

Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

I just had my first full night of sleep in 5 1/12 months. It was the third night of implementing the program and she slept from 7:00 to 5:00 and went back down until 7:00. I am so happy I woke up crying:) Thanks again! You are a life saver

– Elyce, Kevin, and Jaidyn Battle

Dear Dana,

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your sleep programme is fantastic and truly works! Last night was our 6th night and things are going brilliantly well! I really can’t thank you enough.

Joel slept through on the 3rd night, had a bit of a blip on the 4th night, but I think it was because he had a dirty nappy and was uncomfortable but 5th and 6th nights…straight through! Thank you
