GOLD Lactation Conference team 

I found your talk extremely practical in order for me to better support mums and their children with feeding difficulties. On behalf of the RCGP, we wish to thank you for the invaluable contribution you made to the Antenatal and Paediatric Conference.

Dr. Catherine Millington-Sanders
Royal College of General Practitioners

We were so pleased to have Lyndsey on board as a speaker for The Breastfeeding Festival 2019. She was so prompt with all of the information we needed to sort out the event and advertising. On the day, she arrived early and was on hand to speak to event delegates. The talk she gave was very informative, factual, and practical. As with most things regarding infant sleep, parents want to hear not just the science, but practical ideas for how to manage a difficult sleep situation when they are struggling. Lyndsey was able to give parents positive ideas that didn’t risk the well-being of their child. We are so pleased to have had her speak at the festival and would recommend her to anyone that would like to offer positive sleep support, and alternatives to the usual cry-it-out, to other parents.

J’Nel Metherell
IBCLC and Chairperson for The Breastfeeding Festival Milton Keynes
