Katie (mom of a 6 month old) FL
"It’s some of the best money I’ve ever spent. As a mother of young children, there is nothing more valuable than restful, stress-free sleep. I can’t recommend her enough."
My second child was 6 months old (and my oldest had just turned 2) when I decided I needed to invest in our sanity and hire a sleep coach. My daughter did INCREDIBLY well with Sarah’s guidance. It was nothing near crying it out. In fact, we experienced LESS crying from day one because I was provided the tools to be giving her the right schedule without the guesswork and stress so she wasn’t crying from being overtired or confused or overstimulated. It was mostly just breaking MY bad habits that I thought were helping. My biggest regret is that I hadn’t done it a year and a half prior with my son.
Nora has been sleeping through the night since the first night of working with Sarah, at 6 months old. Recently, at 10 months, we went through a phase of her waking up at 5am for 10 days or so before I cashed in a follow up call I had with Sarah. Two days into following her simple suggestions and she slept til 7:15 which is a massive improvement for all of us.
The price tag had me hesitant at first, but it’s some of the best money I’ve ever spent. As a mother of young children, there is nothing more valuable than restful, stress free sleep. I can’t recommend her enough.

"When she was 4 weeks old I decided to hire a sleep consultant. I thought my husband was going to kill me but it turns out it has been the best money I have ever spent."
When Charlie was 4 weeks old I decided to hire Sarah as my sleep consultant. I thought my husband was going to kill me but it turns out it has been the best money I have ever spent.
- she slept in a ROCKING rock n play
- slept in our bedroom
- woke up 2 times during the night (super hard to get back to sleep)
- refused to nap anywhere but on me
- swaddled tightly
- paci always
- late bedtime with zero routine
- lots of crying
- sleeps in her room
- sleeps in her crib
- sleeps through the night (most nights)
- no paci
- no swaddle
- no rock n play
- goes down (if she wakes up in night) right away
- all naps in crib
- very minimal crying (if any at all)
- earlier bedtime with routine
I’m not saying this will always be the case. We WILL have bad nights and naps but I am so grateful for how far we have come together. With the help of Sarah, we will be better equipped to handle those tough nights!
Paige (mother of twins) CO
"It was the best money we've spent all year, and we cannot sing her praises enough!"
It was an absolute joy to work with Sarah. She completely transformed my life from being an exhausted mom with 3 kids under 3-years-old to a well-rested one. Before working with her, my 3-month-old twins were refusing to nap during the afternoon and alternating their wakeup times every hour at night, making for very fussy babies and very tired parents. With her guidance and the routine she created for us, my twins now take 3 naps a day and are both now sleeping from 7:30pm until 5am, which was a HUGE win. Most importantly, Sarah educated us on what to do when the routine goes awry and how to ensure our babies are staying simulated without getting overtired during the day. It was the best money we've spent all year, and we cannot sing her praises enough!

"I would highly recommend Sleep Wise Consulting for any and all sleep problems, big or small. Sometimes, it takes an outside eye to get your little ones back on track."
I was feeling very discouraged with our twins sleep and how to fix it; mainly because it wasn't the typical "I need help getting them to sleep through the night" issue. Our big hurdle was naps, schedule issues, and getting rid of props. Working with twins is a big undertaking, but after speaking to Jennifer for only 15 minutes, I felt very confident that she could help us!
We are now able to anticipate an age appropriate schedule which includes adequate daytime sleep, and 11.5-12 hours overnight. Paige and Brynn have become wonderful independent sleepers!
I would highly recommend Sleep Wise Consulting for any and all sleep problems, big or small. Because, sometimes it takes an outside eye to get your little ones back on track.
Ashley and Ryan Williams (parents of a 5 year old) NY
"We couldn’t have found a better sleep coach who listened to our problems/struggles and helped us overcome sleepless nights."
We have a five year old boy who has struggled with falling asleep on his on for over five years. It started out with co sleeping for three years and then we tried to transition him into a room with his younger brother. My husband and I would have to sit by his bed and
rub his back to help him fall asleep as well as sleeping with him or on the trundle by his bed. This went on for five years. He wasn’t getting good sleep and neither were we.
About three months ago, I was reading a Mom website I’m part of and saw Emily’s posting about her sleeping struggles she went through with her son and how she found this amazing company to help guide her through the struggles she was having and how she recently completed her sleeping consultant training with them. After reading her post it just clicked with me that she was the one who could help.
Emily was so kind, thoughtful and professional. We met with Emily one on one with my
son to discuss the new sleeping plan. I was so amazed how well my five year old was sleeping after three days working through her sleep plan. Emily was terrific. Emily guided us and kept us focused each step of the way. I honestly can’t say enough. We couldn’t have found a better sleep coach who listened to our problems/struggles and helped us overcome sleepless nights.
We have a five year old now who is going to bed on his on and sleeping through the night. Thank you Emily for our families sleeping success. We are all loving our rest now!
Tiffany (parent of a 4 month old) PA
"Bedtime is enjoyable and my husband and I now have our evenings back together as we’re not stressing about multiple night wake ups."
Working with Jennifer was such a blessing. She was so kind, understanding and knowledgeable. After just a few days our son was able to fall asleep on his own, sleeps through the night and started taking longer naps all in his crib. Bedtime is enjoyable and my husband and I now have our evenings back together as we’re not stressing about multiple night wake ups. We are beyond thrilled with his results and have Jennifer to thank!
Lyndsay and Reid (parents of a 3.5 year old and 8 month old) IL
"Both of our kids are now sleeping through the night, which is something we never thought would happen."
Dana's the best! Hands down, she's heaven sent! Because of her, my husband and I are able to get our sanity back! Both of our kids are now sleeping through the night, which is something we never thought would happen.
Debora (Mom of a 13 Month Old)
"We followed the plan and we saw results from night 1!"
Thank you Susan for helping us! Our 14 month old daughter Olivia had never slept through the night. She also would not sleep in her bedroom/crib. We finally decided we had enough and decided to hire a sleep consultant. Susan is amazing! She listened to our problems & expectations and created a personalized sleep plan for our daughter. We followed the plan and we saw results from night 1! She did wake up a couple times during the first two nights but was able to soothe herself and went back to sleep on her own. By the third night, she was able to sleep on her own, all night long in her bedroom! She now sleeps 11-12 hours at night and takes one 3 hour nap during the day. We are so proud of her! We wish we had met Susan earlier!
Katie & Lonnie Camacho (parents of a 12 month old) NC
"With her knowledge as a pediatric sleep nurse, she has helped me to gain a greater understanding of some of the things our daughter struggles with in terms of her sleep, taking the time to explain and help my husband and I make tough decisions about the care in which my daughter should receive."
Kimberly has been a great help to our family. Our daughter was diagnosed with a sleep disorder and Kimberly with her background in working as a pediatric sleep nurse has helped support my husband and I through the ups and downs of our daughter's sleep progress. With her knowledge as a pediatric sleep nurse she has helped me to gain a greater understanding of some of the things our daughter struggles with in terms of her sleep, taking the time to explain and help my husband and I make tough decisions about the care in which my daughter should receive.
She has gone over and above to help us and to think of "out of the box" solutions for Emma's sleep. She has supported and encouraged us through this process and continually makes time for us to answer questions or address concerns we have. We are very grateful for the time we have had with Kimberly and we will look to her for any additional help we need for Emma in the future.

"It has been a night and day difference for our twins, as they are now a lot happier, eating better, and soaring with their developmental milestones!"
By working with Dana we have not only learned about baby sleep, but we have also learned about LIFE! We didn’t want our time with her to end and looked forward to every single phone call! It has been a night and day difference for our twins, as they are now a lot happier, eating better, and soaring with their developmental milestones!
Katie and Aaron Kaswell (parents of a 5.5 month old) NY
"Her sleep plan got our son to drop the pacifier and learn how to put himself to sleep in just one night! She told us it might take 3-4, but clearly, she knew what he needed."
Emily was such a great sleep coach for our family! Prior to having her guidance, we were doing OK but we were using a lot of tricks and props to help our 4 month old fall sleep. And they weren’t even working all the time. We would have normal night wake-ups for our baby to nurse but then he wouldn’t fall back to sleep for hours. We often would need to rock him to sleep and we were convinced he needed to be swaddled. When things didn’t go well (which was fairly often and in the middle of the night), there was tension.
Emily really helped us get over so many humps and bring more peace and ease back to our house with her coaching and her sleep plan. We had so many questions, and she listened and supported us the whole way through. Her sleep plan got our son to drop the pacifier and learn how to put himself to sleep in just one night! She told us it might take 3-4, but clearly she knew what he needed. After just a few weeks, Leo was sleeping on a regular schedule with minimal wake-ups and his daytime naps became more predictable. We’re pretty proud of him and so thankful for Emily’s expertise!
Kristi and Ethan Miedecke (parents of a 3 year old) CA
"After 3 weeks of consistency, and a lot of guidance from Ashlee, I am so happy to say that Erik is sleeping in his own bed, in his own room, all night long. We have our bed back!"
Before we decided to hire a SleepWise consultant, Erik had been sleeping in between me and my husband since he was 10 months old. We went out of town, Erik was sick and he was teething... it was the perfect storm for reactive cosleeping. I was working full time and so was my husband, so instead of fighting the sleep training battle, we just let him sleep with us. As he grew, our bed seemed to shrink. Toes in our back, ribs, and us teetering on the edge... Erik ruled the bed. Not only did he take up more space than any 3 year old should, it made it so we dealt with him until we went to sleep. He had no bedtime and just went to sleep when we did.
It took us too long to decide enough is enough and decided to hire Ashlee to help us get our bed back. After 3 weeks of consistency, and a lot of guidance from Ashlee, I am so happy to say that Erik is sleeping in his own bed, in his own room, all night long. We have our bed back, we get to watch our shows, and we have a couple hours where we just get to talk and hang out uninterrupted before we want to go to bed. Thank you for all your help!

"I can literally lay my baby down in her crib with nothing but her sound machine on, walk away, and she’s completely capable of falling asleep on her own. It’s amazing and such a great feeling."
Before I reached out to Dana, I was so frustrated, tired and wishing this baby stage away. I was even beginning to resent my baby for making things so difficult. I decided to contact some recommended sleep consultants to see if there was anything they could possibly do to help me (I felt like I’d tried it all). After speaking to several consultants I knew I wanted to work with Dana. It was so nice to know she wanted me to get the best results I could.
I can literally lay my baby down in her crib with nothing but her sound machine on, walk away, and she’s completely capable of falling asleep on her own. It’s amazing and such a great feeling. I no longer have that anxious feeling about what she’s going to do when I lay her down. I’m so so happy I was able to find Dana and for all her helpful recommendations. It has made our home, my family and especially me so much happier!
Christina (Mom of a 6 month old) CA
"I swear this process was magic!"
Our sweet 6 month old was still up every 1.5-2 hours at night while I was caring for my elderly grandfather. I was absolutely exhausted between being up all night with the baby, taking care of my 4 year old and my grandfather. We spoke to Sarah on a Monday, started a program on a Wednesday and my Levi was sleeping through the night by Saturday and napping at predictable times during the day. My grandfather passed away that Saturday and while it was a terribly sad and difficult time for me, Sarah gave me the biggest gift anyone could have, some physical and mental rest that was much needed! I was so skeptical that this would work because we had tried so much already (we had read all the books!) Once we got started, the whole process was easy, pain free and the biggest blessing I’ve ever experienced! I swear this process was magic. If you are worried about the crying, I promise you will end up with a happier, less fussy, well rested baby in the end which is the ultimate mom goal!
Stefani (Mom of 5 month old) TX
"The support is wonderful and the results have exceeded our expectations."
After the birth of my 2nd daughter, I experienced some postpartum complications that resulted in re-hospitalization and PPD. I needed rest to recover and was not getting it. I expected to get a good block of sleep around 6 weeks postpartum. At 15 weeks postpartum, waking every 2 hours had me at the end of my rope. I could not be myself, a good wife, a good mom and certainly not a good coworker. I did not want my baby to cry but did know I had to do something to manage my rest and anxiety to avoid another emergency.
I reached out to Erica at Sleep Wise and immediately felt reassured during the initial evaluation call. We had many things in place and were on the right track, but there was work to do to achieve consistent sleep. We worked toward a sleep plan that was gentle and responsive, which was the only kind my husband and I wanted. She tailored it for our baby and it worked within a couple of days! I expected 1-2 night feedings for a 4-5 month old but now our baby is sleeping through the night! The support is wonderful and the results have exceeded our expectations. We are so thankful to Erica for her help, and will definitely reach out again if we have any further issues with our children sleeping.

“The difference in their behavior is drastic. They’re happier, smiling a lot more, absorbing new information, and developing faster than ever."
Our twins are in a much better mood during the day now, and so are we! The difference in their behavior is drastic. They’re happier, smiling a lot more, absorbing new information, and developing faster than ever. Thank you, Dana, for all of your support, guidance, and encouragement along the way!
Melissa (Mom of a 20 month old) IL
"Her development has taken off since she has started sleeping better, and she is much happier! My husband and I feel so refreshed now that we have our sleep back!"
Before we started working with Sarah on a sleep plan for our daughter, Maggie, our main issues were night wakings and short naps. At 20 months, she would wake in the middle of the night and sometimes be up and down crying for 2-3 hours. I was also rocking her to sleep at night and naptime until she fell asleep. Maggie started sleeping through the night on the first night we implemented the plan Sarah made for us! She is now sleeping through the night, consistently, and taking MUCH better naps! Her development has taken off since she has started sleeping better, and she is much happier! My husband and I feel so refreshed now that we have our sleep back, as well!
Sara and Cody (Parents of a 12-Week Old) Saudi Arabia
"Within 2 weeks our baby was able to put herself to sleep with no paci or swaddle, and by 12 weeks was sleeping 10-11 hours at night."
At 7 weeks old, our newborn had absolutely no independent sleep skills. We had to rock/bounce/replace paci, all day and night to get her to sleep short spurts. With a 20 month and 3 year old, we couldn't do it any more. Dana helped us get my 21 month old sleeping though the night at 7 months, so we knew just where to turn for help.
After starting the newborn sleep plan with Dana, we had a rough first week of dropping sleep props, but the second week we started seeing vast improvements. Within 2 weeks our baby was able to put herself to sleep with no paci or swaddle, and by 12 weeks was sleeping 10-11 hours at night. Dana has been an amazing encouragement and support through this process of teaching our little lady to sleep. She has been encouraging in the frustrating moments, understanding in the overwhelming moments, and celebratory with us in the victorious moments. She has helped restore a great amount of peace into our family for which we are forever grateful.
Maddy and Jimmy (Parents of a 3 year old) NY
"Sleepwise gave us the structure to change our daughter’s sleeping habits and now she falls asleep by herself for the first time ever."
Before working with Emily, our 3 year old wouldn’t go to bed on her own (we spent 30-60 minutes lying beside her in her room) and she would end up in our bed nearly every night. Sleep Wise gave us the structure to change our daughter’s sleeping habits and now she falls asleep by herself for the first time ever. We finally get a bed to ourselves and are sleeping much better as a result. Emily was supportive, warm and very responsive throughout the entire process. Thanks again, Emily!

"Purchasing the prenatal sleep package was the best decision I’ve made for my family."
Purchasing the prenatal sleep package was the best decision I’ve made for my family, as I’ve had your support for 10 weeks now. To that, I just want to say how thankful I am for you and this sleep program. To be able to have someone to troubleshoot and be the voice of sleep reason is SO SO worth it. You are amazing, Dana!
Sarah (Mom of a 3-Month Old and 2-Year Old) CA
"I feel like a better mom and wife "simply" because you have helped us to unlock the secrets to better sleep for our babies and family."
I just wanted to take the time to thank you, Dana, for all that you've done for our family. We are truly blessed to have been paired with you as our sleep consultant. You've given us so much more than sleep, though. You have improved the quality of our life tremendously!
We are so proud of our two sons and how well they have been responding to this program and we know we couldn't have done it without you. I feel like a better mom and wife "simply" because you have helped us to unlock the secrets to better sleep for our babies and family.

"After ONE night of working with Allison, Jaxon slept 12 straight hours. He never turned back!"
We were in a downward spiral when we first reached out to Allison. Our son, Jaxon, was waking up 3-4 times a night and needed to be rocked to sleep each time. We were not sleeping more than 4 hours at a time. After ONE night of working with Allison, Jaxon slept 12 straight hours. He never turned back! Two weeks later, everyone, (including the dog!!) caught up on sleep, and our Jaxon was happier then ever!
Stephanie (mom of a 13 month old) AZ
"Trust the process, it truly works!"
Before Sleepwise, we were all functioning on minimal sleep. Our one year old was in our bed and woke up multiple times during the night. My husband and I were not getting along very well. My pediatrician used this service and recommended we try it. I was skeptical to say the least. Allison was wonderful. I have anxiety and she was amazing throughout the entire process. Our son is napping and sleeping the entire night in his crib. My husband and I get time to recharge and unwind. Trust the process, it truly works. We cannot thank Allison and Sleepwise enough. You’ve changed our lives.
Jaime & Kevin (parents of a 20 month old) NY
"This program WORKS!"
Working with Allison has been an extremely life changing decision. My son has been a terrible sleeper since the very beginning, he was highly dependent on me as we bed shared and nursed for 20 months. In order for him to go to sleep, I needed to lay with him and the moment I would try to leave, he would pop right up and the cycle continued until I surrendered and laid with him the entire nap or the entire night. I had ZERO time to myself to get anything I needed done, let alone have some level of independence.
When he weaned, we decided it was now or never to correct his habits. We tried many different methods, all without success. We were at our wit's end and I was EXHAUSTED. We knew we wanted to grow our family and there was just no way to do that without getting our son to sleep.
I found Allison’s name through a fellow mom, and my husband and I said, this is it, we are committing and whatever it takes let’s do it. We, of course, were skeptical as we thought we “tried it all”. We took our chances and within 3 days, my son’s sleep habits changed for the better - it was literally night and day. Not only was he in his crib but I wasn’t forced to lay with him. I COULDN’T believe it! We were able to quickly figure out his crutches, his needs and through consistency and Allison’s coaching, my son was sleeping through the night and went down for a daily nap without me! It was a major achievement for all of us. This program WORKS.
It is hard to believe it because we didn't want to admit defeat or that our methods weren't working but my son truthfully, was hands down, the worst sleeper and to this day, we are shocked. We took a leap of faith and were greatly rewarded with a wonderful coach, a soundly sleeping son and sleep for both mommy and daddy along with some of our independence back! We recommend this program to anyone who is struggling, don’t even think about it, just commit and you will be writing your success story soon after!

"I cannot explain how happy we are that we decided to work with Susan, we wish we would’ve started sooner!!"
Our daughter is 8 months old and before we contacted Susan, she was waking up between 4 and 8 times every single night (and eating two of those times). I’m a marketing manager and my husband is a pilot, so with our already busy work schedules we were absolutely at our wits end. I posted on Facebook a desperate plea for any and every trick or gimmick that had worked for people to get their kids to sleep. One of my friends messaged me and recommended Susan. I wasn’t sold - we didn’t think we needed that and anyway, we weren’t sure that it would work. Two weeks go by, we’ve tried everything and nothing has helped. I figured hiring a sleep consultant was worth a shot!
As soon as we spoke with Susan a change was noticeable immediately! The first night Addie only woke up four short times with no night feeding, it was a miracle! Every night after that got increasingly better and naps started improving too. In less than 48 hours Addie was sleeping thru the night - we never dreamed that’d be possible! Now after two weeks in the program Addie is consistently sleeping 10-12 hours per night and napping 3.5 hours per day, all in her crib! Addie is happier and more well rested, and so our we. I cannot explain how happy we are that we decided to work with Susan, we wish we would’ve started sooner!!
Cassie (Mom of an 8 Month Old) OH
"We are all so happy and rested thanks to Sleep Wise Consulting!"
Before Susan and the Sleep Wise program, our daughter wouldn’t last more than an hour or two in her own crib at night and didn’t sleep without me (and usually only me) holding her for naps and bedtime. I was exhausted and irritable! I felt like I didn’t have any time for my older son and my husband, let alone myself. Most importantly, I knew that my daughter wasn’t getting the proper sleep that she needed to grow and thrive.
Within the first two nights of putting Susan’s plan into place, Sutton was sleeping nearly 12 hours in her own crib each night and started taking two naps throughout the day. We are all so happy and rested thanks to Sleep Wise Consulting!

At 10 months old Oliver was having early morning wakeups and would only nap while being held. With Jennifer's help he is now sleeping 11-12 hours straight at night and can fall asleep in his crib by himself for naps! I’m so grateful for her help with getting his sleep habits on track."

"LIFE CHANGING is the first thing that comes to mind from our experience with Sleep Wise Consulting."
LIFE CHANGING is the first thing that comes to mind from our experience with Sleep Wise Consulting. Long are the days where we would hold, rock, nurse, stroll or drive our son Henry Ellis to sleep. To be honest, we were in survival mode and feeling defeated when we reached out to Katie and her company. She was exactly what we needed, and I can't say enough good things about what this customized program has done for our little family.

"If anyone is struggling with sleep no matter what the child's age, it is worth the investment. We are a much happier well-rested family by doing so!"
While working with Kelley with our first child, we knew that we didn't want to have a 2nd child that had the same challenges, so we wanted to start early. Dylan was 6 weeks old when we started working with Kelley.
By the time Dylan was 12 weeks and I needed to return to work he was sleeping 11 hours at night. I never knew babies could do this! Having the support of someone and having someone hold you accountable helped make us a household with healthy sleep habits and we can't thank Kelley enough for getting us to this point.
If anyone is struggling with sleep no matter what the child's age, it is worth the investment. We are a much happier well rested family by doing so!

"Hailey can now go to sleep on her own and stays in her own bed the entire night. We never thought the night would come where she could do this!"
Hailey is 2 years old and has never been a good sleeper. It was quite the process to get her to go to sleep and she frequently got up during the night. We transitioned her to a big bed in preparation for the arrival of our second child. Her sleep (and ours) got worse. We would lay with her for at least an hour every night just to fall asleep and then she was up multiple times a night and ultimately ended up in our room. We all slept terribly.
Kelley was a blessing to our family. She helped us work with Hailey and supported us every step of the way. Hailey can now go to sleep on her own and stays in her own bed the entire night. We never thought the night would come where she could do this!
Jen (Mom of 9 month old) CA
"I am so grateful and highly recommend Sleep Wise Consulting. It has completely changed all our lives for the better!"
My 9 month old daughter Moon always struggled with sleeping and waking up 2 to 3 times a night. I would have to give her a bottle and rock her to sleep literally every single night. Kelley was extremely helpful in adjusting Moon’s sleep habits. After just 2 weeks, she now sleeps through the entire night without a bottle. I am so grateful and highly recommend Sleep Wise Consulting. It has completely changed all our lives for the better!
Beka (Mom of 4 month old) NY
"We have the rest of the evening to ourselves. It's amazing."
I cannot stop bragging about Kelley to all of my friends. I feel like I have my life back. Before Kelley, I was working all day to get Stratford to nap and up all night trying to soothe him to sleep. Now he regularly naps 1.5-2 hours, and I am able to lay him in bed and he puts himself to sleep around 8pm. We have the rest of the evening to ourselves. It's amazing."
Sidney (mom of 3.5 month old) TX
"In two days we had broken that cycle and had a 3.5-month-old who could put herself to sleep, sleep all night and take beautiful long naps WITHOUT a pacifier."
Before working with Kelley our daughter was taking 45 minute naps and needing her paci several times between 5-7 am. She could put herself to sleep with her paci but couldn’t stay asleep. We were in a vicious short nap cycle.
In two days we had broken that cycle and had a 3.5 month old who could put herself to sleep, sleep all night and take beautiful long naps WITHOUT a pacifier. Millie was sleeping so well that she started ROLLING both ways while we were working with Kelley. Our family is so grateful for Kelley and all that she did for us.”

Kerri and James Broadbent (parents of a 3.5 month old) NH
"Emily genuinely cared about helping our family and teaching us the skills to help our daughter learn to sleep on her own."
Working with Emily truly changed our life. My 3 1/2 month old would not nap anywhere except on me or while being carried in the ergo. I was spending up to 30 minutes each nap rocking her or walking around with her to get her to fall asleep. And bedtime was even worse. It was taking 2-3 hours to get her to stay asleep as she would wake within 20 minutes of putting her in the crib, time and time again.
All of this changed when we started working with Emily. Now our daughter falls asleep on her own in her crib every day and night. She sleeps through the night and everyone is more well rested and happier. Emily genuinely cared about helping our family and teaching us the skills to help our daughter learn to sleep on her own. She always responded to our questions quickly, was consistently reassuring and encouraging, and stuck with us when things felt very tough.
It was not an easy process, but Emily made suggestions and tweaks along the way to help with our individual needs and circumstances. She was invested in helping us and I am truly grateful to have worked with Emily.

"Now, we put her in the crib awake and she falls asleep within a few minutes."
I couldn't cook, clean, or get anything done since I was sitting for several hours a day holding her while she slept. Now, we put her in the crib awake and she falls asleep within a few minutes.
Cielo and Robert (Parents of 18-month old) VA
"Thank you to Kimberly for our daily communication and consistency!!! Max is now sleeping on his own and in his crib!"
For Max, my son, I was rocking, singing and he was drinking his bottle to be able to go to sleep...and he inevitably ended up in my bed. I felt he wouldn’t ever be able to sleep by himself in his crib.
Thank you to Kimberly for our daily communication and consistency!!! Max is now sleeping on his own and in his crib!!!

"I feel human again!"
Happy Mother's Day to me! When Dana told me that my baby would be sleeping through the night before Mother's Day, I could hardly believe it. But here we are two weeks later and she was right. I feel human again!

"The books didn’t know me, my son, my family, or my individual needs. This is where Sarah came in. I just needed the plan and she was what I needed to help get us there. We are now back to happy family and I wake to a smiling, thriving, happy boy!"
“I highly recommend Sarah to all parents. Prior to working with Sleepwise Consulting, I had looked into other companies but could not find one that worked with 3 month old babies. I was desperate for some help. I thought I knew what I was doing- I work as a therapist with children! I even bought a book on sleep that discussed all the different strategies out there. It was great but it was lacking in one very important area. The book didn’t know me, my son, my family, or my individual needs.
I was struggling with the 30-45 minute sleep intruders that I had read so much about. I learned so much about sleep though this process. I realized that my son was growing up and needed my support. I loved my infant boy and I might miss his sleeping on me at times, but his sleep is a dramatic difference! His sleep cycles at 3.5 months were becoming more adult like and he couldn’t connect them together. What worked as an infant, now was a sleep prop.
I was feeling guilty. I had returned to work and my job requires some of my time outside the office. I couldn’t do both like I wanted. I couldn’t be the mom I wanted to my son nor could I be the therapist I wanted to my clients. I was feeling very conflicted. I hate to admit it but I even resented my son a little. His naps were not long enough for me to do anything! His sleep was also struggling.
People have all different beliefs on sleep. I never wanted to cosleep but I had resorted to this in the middle of the night. If I didn’t no one slept. My husband and I were starting to argue more with each other and we were conflicted. I tried it all but I lacked a plan. I knew what I was doing wasn’t working but I didn’t know how to fix or move forward. I got rid of the swaddle myself but I couldn’t fix his sleep!
This is where Sarah came in and the books didn’t help. Sarah was great. The intake questionnaire asked very specific questions. Sarah read all my responses and I felt really took them into perspective what we had tried and my family. She really valued my desire to see my son in the morning and evening during my work days to help develop a routine that worked for everyone. She was even willing to help with some daycare suggestions had it been needed. She was encouraging throughout the entire process and checked it right away after night one to see how it went and how I was feeling. She answered all my questions, no matter how silly they might have seemed and encouraged me if I had a mommy panicked moment. She really took time to help me understand the process and understand how sleep develops and changes over time so I felt prepared.
It was one of the best parenting choices I have made so far as my role as my mom has evolved. I highly recommend her to any parent. My son now naps like a champ at home, daycare, and I have even seen great car seat naps! We went from 30-45 minutes to sometimes having to wake him so we don’t tap out on daytime sleep and push into night time sleep needs. He easily takes 1.5-2hr naps now and his last nap is usually the shortest. It’s just enough to get us though to a good bedtime. He still fusses to put himself down but that is completely normal! If he wakes/stirs in the middle of the night he can put himself down. We started with two middle of the night feeds and went down to one quickly because of Sarah’s guidance. I’ve had to do naps in the car but he has rocked them! I just carry him inside and let him finish the nap in his carseat with baby monitor on him. I’ve seen it work! He has woke up in his seat but given some time, gone right back to sleep.
I wouldn’t have been able to do this without her help and her plan to guide me along. I just needed the plan and she was what I needed to help get us there. We are now back to happy family and I wake to a smiling, thriving, happy boy! There are even days I have to wake him!”

"Nora is a happier baby and we are beyond thrilled with the help that Sarah gave our family. We highly recommend working with Sleep Wise Consulting."
Before working with Sarah Nora was having to be rocked to sleep, getting up almost every hour sometimes, and sleeping in our bed at times. Now, we have a nap and feeding schedule that works for our family. Nora is putting herself to sleep and taking great naps throughout the day and sleeping great at night. Nora is a happier baby and we are beyond thrilled with the help that Sarah gave our family. We highly recommend working with Sleep Wise Consulting.
Jordan, Mom of 11-Month Old Twins, IL
"Life is doable now!"
I didn't know what to expect going into this with twins, but everyone who said it was the best money ever spent was right! Thank you, Dana, for making this experience better than I ever expected!
Melissa (Mom of 6-Month Old Twins) IL
"It's so nice to have my arms free!"
Although Dana came highly recommended, I was skeptical that my twins would really sleep through the night and nap well on their own like the other twin moms had claimed...
But I am pleased to share that they are and it's so nice to have my arms free again!
Emily and John (parents of a 9 month old) CO
"It is such a great feeling to know that I can say "goodnight" and know that he goes right to sleep."
Sarah was so supportive and comforting on the first night. It is such a great feeling to know that I can say "goodnight" and know that he goes right to sleep. I didn't think it was possible. It was so worth investing in.
Jenna (Mom of a 4-Month Old) GA
"I just wanted to post this info out there for moms that are struggling like I was. It does help and I’m so thankful for Dana!"
I want to let those know who are struggling with their babies sleep to consider sleep consultant Dana Mihajlovic. I highly recommend her. Words can’t even convey how different things are in our household because of her help. I told her that my husband and I would have treated her to a 5 star dinner if she lived closer because we are so thankful.
She goes above and beyond and is so kind! I love her approach. After a hard season of life, my husband and I now are able to spend time together in the evenings watching movies again, date again, and are able to lay our baby down with no worries and she goes to sleep by herself!
I just wanted to post this info out there for moms that are struggling like I was. It does help and I’m so thankful for Dana. Like I said before, words can’t express how grateful I am now that my baby is getting the sleep she needs and, as a result, she’s much happier of a baby! So different then a month ago.
Megan and Brian (Parents of 10 month old) MN
"We always thought we had a super happy baby before but, after making the necessary changes, he is SO much happier...and so are we!"
Working with Erica was the best decision we have ever made! Our almost 1 year old stopped sleeping through the night at 4 months old. We thought this was something that would resolve itself but, here we were at 10 months, and it was getting worse. He refused to nap in his crib, would go to bed late, and could not fall asleep unless we were holding him. He would wake up several times throughout the night and we would end up feeding and rocking to get him back to sleep. We were desperate for help, which is where Erica comes in! We were a little skeptical and nervous going into all of this, but Erica made the transition incredibly smooth and bearable for everyone. She addressed any concerns we had, made adjustments to accommodate our life, and was always there when we needed help. Our little guy now takes two consistent naps each day, puts himself down to sleep, sleeps through the night (11-12 hours) and, best of all, wakes up happy! We always thought we had a super happy baby before but, after making the necessary changes, he is SO much happier...and so are we! We cannot believe the progress our son made in just a few short weeks of working with Erica and now, 4 weeks later, he seems to be a pro at this whole sleep thing! We honestly do not know where we would be without Erica and Sleep Wise Consulting. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone! Erica made life even better for our family and we cannot express our gratitude enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Marae (Mom of 5 month old) GA
"I never, ever dreamed we’d see the results we did. Emma completely transformed into an easy, amazing sleeper within days of putting Kelley’s plan into action."
The only regret I have about working with Kelley at Sleepwise consulting is that we didn’t find her sooner!! My oldest was an amazing sleeper almost from the time we brought her home, so you can imagine our shock and frustration when our sweet second baby girl decided to start waking every 2-3 hours at 3 months old. After surviving on minimal sleep for about 2 months, we were desperate, and friends pointed us to Kelley. I felt like I had tried everything with Emma to improve her sleep habits without success, so to be completely honest, I wasn’t sure how much Kelley could help. I never, ever dreamed we’d see the results we did. Emma completely transformed into an easy, amazing sleeper within days of putting Kelley’s plan into action. She went from taking 30 minute cat naps and waking every 2-3 hours at night to taking 1.5-2 hour naps and sleeping a consolidated 11 hours at night. Amazing. She also goes to bed awake and soothes herself to sleep alone within minutes. She’s also so much happier and well rested during the day thanks to her great sleep habits! Our lives have completely transformed and we couldn’t be more grateful to Kelley and Sleepwise consulting! Thank you!!
Jess and Mike (parents of a 5 month old) VA
"I’m no longer constantly anxious about her sleep. We are a more rested and happy family thanks to Kimberly!"
We worked with Kimberly to help our five-month-old daughter improve her sleep. My older son was a great sleeper so I thought I had the whole sleep training thing figured out. I quickly learned that the approach I used to help him sleep was not a good fit for my daughter. Her sleep was not awful, but very inconsistent and I felt overwhelmed with the variety of conflicting advice I read in books and online. I knew I needed help and Kimberly provided that and more.
Despite a packed schedule, Kimberly made time to quickly speak with me and my husband to get a plan in place. Within days of implementing her sleep plan, my daughter began to consolidate naps and consistently sleep through the night. Additionally, Kimberly educated me on how to handle the variety of situations that arise when you’re sleep training so I’m more confident in what to do when my daughter throws us sleep curve balls. I’m no longer constantly anxious about her sleep. We are a more rested and happy family thanks to Kimberly!
Aimee and John (parents of a 6 month old) NY
"He is a much happier baby and my husband and I feel such comfort in knowing that he is getting the rest he deserves."
Our little man Ivo is our third child. He had a stomach surgery at three weeks old, his frenulum clipped when he was 4 months old. He had eczema which made him itch his cheeks constantly and had a lot of uncomfortable gas and reflux. The little guy had been through a lot. It was hard to tell whether he truly was uncomfortable from his various ailments or he just wanted extra attention. Every night he had a terrible time going to sleep. He would finally settle but that would only last for a few hours until he was up crying every two hours again. I would nurse him back to sleep, but after a while that didn’t even satisfy him. His naps during the day were short, he was fussy and agitated and overtired (and so were we)!
We called Kim and she COMPLETELY CHANGED OUR LIFE!!! We weren’t sure it was possible for such an incredible change in him so quickly. Within just a few days of working with her, his and our entire world had improved. Ivo was able to sleep from his bedtime through the night and wake up refreshed in the morning. He began taking longer solid naps. He breastfed more vigorously and consistently during the day. Amazingly, his eczema even improved. He is a much happier baby and my husband and I feel such comfort in knowing that he is getting the rest he deserves.
Kim is experienced, extremely knowledgeable and has a gentle spirit. She led us through this process with grace and gave us the confidence we needed to help Ivo become a better sleeper. We COULD NOT have done it without her!!
Ashley (parent of a 12 month old) IN
"Complete 360! This has completely changed our family and we are so grateful!"
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jeannine! Our 12 month old daughter, Cora, woke every hour since she was 2 months old. After several hours of waking and going into her room every hour I would eventually just bring her to bed with us so we could get some sleep. She would wake and nurse all night long. I read a couple testimonials from a private group on Facebook and after discussing it with my husband, we decided to reach out to Jeannine. After working with her, Cora went from waking every hour to sleeping from 8pm-7am!! She takes 2 naps during the day, one for 2 hours and the other for an hour an a half. Complete 360! This has completely changed our family and we are so grateful!
Chrissy and Trey (Parents of a 21-Month Old) IL
"Our toddler is sleeping better now than ever thanks to Dana!"
The experience of working with Dana was by far what we valued most about the sleep package! She provided us with a sleep education, charts, routines, and logs... and held us accountable! Our toddler is sleeping better now than ever thanks to Dana!
Lindsay (Mom of an 8-Month Old) IL
"My daughter now consistently sleeps through the night and takes two great naps on her own each day!"
Dana gave me the comfort and support in knowing what we were doing was going to make a difference. And it did... my daughter now consistently sleeps through the night and takes two great naps on her own each day!
Taryn and Patrick (parents of 7-month old) GA
"I can hardly believe it’s been a week since we “met”! I never in a million years thought that we’d be where we are in such a short time!"
I wanted to send Dana a bit of gratitude! I can hardly believe it’s been a week since we “met”! I never in a million years thought that we’d be where we are in such a short time! I laid Jameson down tonight and by the time I was downstairs, he was asleep. I think it honestly took him 2 minutes to fall asleep.
I LOVE how simple it is now, and that his big brother is even part of his bedtime routine. He LOVES reading books with us and saying good night to everything around Jameson’s room. Dana has been such a blessing to us and I can’t say how much our family appreciates her!
Kalina and Tad (parents of 8 month old) IN
"We are grateful to Kimberly and to Sleepwise for helping us achieve great sleep for the whole family!"
Before working with Kimberly, Clark had some independent sleep skills, but we knew his sleep needed improvement. Sometimes his naps were unpredictable, and he would only have a full night of sleep for a couple days at a time. Now Clark takes two great, predictable naps and easily sleeps 12 hours EVERY night. He wakes up happy and is in a great mood all day. We are grateful to Kimberly and to Sleepwise for helping us achieve great sleep for the whole family!
Kourtni and Brent Dearborn ( Parents of 21 month old) CO
"I was nervous for the transition, but Erica made it easy and was there every step of the way."
Working with Erica has been nothing short of amazing! Our almost 2 year old was sleeping in bed with us, but once his baby brother arrived I was desperate for some good sleep (for all of us). I was nervous for the transition, but Erica made it easy and was there every step of the way. She addressed all of our concerns and answered all of our questions. Our little man now sleeps in his crib for 11-12 hours at night and a nap during the day! More sleep has made all of us happier! Thank you!
Daniele & Ally (parents of 5 month old) TX
"We are now able to put Jameson in her crib and she sleeps all night, as well as taking long naps in her crib."
My wife and I are first time parent’s and we co-slept with our daughter. We tried putting her in her crib during naps and she would only nap for a few minutes. We would let her nap longer in our bed, until one day she rolled off the bed and fell to the floor. At that moment we know we had to do something to get her in her crib. My OB doctor suggested a pediatric sleep consultant named, Jennifer Loney. After calling her and talking to her for 15 minutes me and my wife made a decision to hire her. The 1st night we worked with Jennifer, Jameson slept all night in her crib. With emails and phone calls with Jennifer, we are now able to put Jameson in her crib and she sleeps all night, as well as taking long naps in her crib. Jennifer is a blessing in disguise and I don’t know what we would have done without her. I would suggest Jennifer because of her our daughter is now sleeping safe and sound.
Lacy (mom of 4 month old) NY
"If you're waffling back and forth about working with a sleep specialist like we were, let me save you the debate, just do it! You'll wish, like us, you'd done it sooner!"
Ellie was 4 months old and waking (some especially awful nights) every hour and a half all night long... which all of us working parents know is absolutely brutal! Her naps were also full of wakings and we were feeling pretty hopeless. Ellie started waking less and less within just a few days of working with Kelley and was sleeping through the night in no time. Her naps have also regulated and I now can look forward to naps and nighttime as opposed to going into both with a dreadful feeling! Kelley saved us and I can't say enough good things. If you're waffling back and forth about working with a sleep specialist like we were, let me save you the debate, just do it! You'll wish, like us, you'd done it sooner!
Rachel (mom of 7 month old) LA
"She knew exactly what to do no matter how frantic my emails were."
We are so grateful for Kelley’s help with our son! Nolan rarely slept through the night and his daytime sleep was a crap shoot - especially at daycare. Kelley gave us a thorough plan with unwavering support and this kid’s sleep has improved immensely! She knew exactly what to do no matter how frantic my emails were. Kelley took away my anxiety about Nolan’s sleep and I couldn’t recommend her enough.
Megan (Mom of 7 month old) AL
"We are beyond thankful that we invested in Kelley to help our family get back to consistent sleep! Our only regret was that we didn't do this sooner!"
I grew up with Kelley and have always known she had a natural gift and passion for kids. Little did I know, she would be helping my family 25+ years later! We thought we had our baby's sleep figured out until he hit 4 months. By 7 months, our son was waking up every 2-3 hours at night, unable to put himself back down. Within 2 weeks, Kelley's customized program and schedule resulted in Beckett sleeping 11 hours at night and 2 consistent naps! We are beyond thankful that we invested in Kelley to help our family get back to consistent sleep! Our only regret was that we didn't do this sooner!
Tori and Nik (Parents of a 7 month old) GA
"With some tweaks to his schedule and a consistent strategy for handling the night wakings, he now sleeps for 11 hours!"
We are so thankful that we worked with Susan to help Leo work through his night wakings. He was getting up 2-3 times at night, sometimes crying for up to an hour even though we fed him and comforted him. With some tweaks to his schedule and a consistent strategy for handling the night wakings, he now sleeps for 11 hours!

Rebecca (Mom of a 4 month old) NJ
"I'm feeling confident in my decisions surrounding sleep because of the education and insight that I received."
After working with Susan, my son is now taking consistent naps, falls asleep within minutes for both naps and bedtime, and wakes up all smiles. Susan was nothing short of patient, kind, understanding, and most of all encouraging. Not only has my son's sleep improved, but I can walk away from my time with Susan feeling confident in my decisions surrounding sleep because of the education and insight that I received.

"We’re so glad we made the decision to work with her! We now have a well rested, happy boy!"
Thanks to Susan, Luke has make great progress with his sleep. He’s taking longer, more constant naps and sleeping through the night. We feel comfortable going forward with the tools Susan left us with. We’re so glad we made the decision to work with her! We now have a well rested, happy boy!

"We honestly don't know where we'd be without Kelley and the Sleep Wise program. We couldn't recommend it more! It's worth every penny!!"
Working with Kelley was life changing. Before we started the Sleepwise program, like many sleep-deprived parents, we were trying to figure out how to get our 5 month old son the sleep he needed. We couldn't figure out how to get him to sleep on his own and instead were dependent on rocking him to sleep and then hoping he'd sleep a few hours in his crib before realizing we put him in there. Kelley was able to provide us with a comprehensive log, daily emails and instructions that were catered to his needs, and supportive phone calls. Even when we went past the 2 week mark, Kelley was there to help us get to the finish line. We just weened our son from 3 naps to 2 and he is getting 11-12 hours of sleep every night and great naps during the day. Now that we are back at work, we are all getting the sleep we need and Elijah is happier to get more rest! Kelley has been so caring an understanding and even helped provide info on white noise machines and other tools to ensure his room was set up for success. We honestly don't know where we'd be without Kelley and the Sleep Wise program. We couldn't recommend it more! It's worth every penny!!
Lauren (Mom of 2.5 years old) LA
"It's been 4 weeks since we started the program and she sleeps all night without waking in her own bed."
Matt and I cannot thank you enough. After two years of co-sleeping and only getting about 2 hours of sleep a night, we are a different family. Emery would wake up wanting to drink, eat, ride in the car, and sometimes just sit in the floor crying. We were exhausted and didn't know what else to do. Working with Kelli saved our marriage. We were fighting and arguing all the time, and both would sit in the floor with her crying because we didn't know what was wrong with her. After the first week, Emery was laying down in her bed by herself, falling asleep without crying, and sleeping all night long without waking. It's been 4 weeks since we started the program and she sleeps all night without waking in her own bed. She is so proud of herself, and tells everyone she sees.
Laura (Mom of a 5-month old and 3-year old) IL
"Not only are both my kids sleeping through the night but our preschooler is happier and more cooperative because he is getting a full nights rest!"
We were having such difficult time with our kid's sleep; Our preschooler’s lengthy bedtime routine, night wakings and very early mornings. Add a 5-month old baby who was waking multiples time a night and we were not sleeping at all!
Not only are both my kids sleeping through the night but our preschooler is happier and more cooperative because he is getting a full nights rest! Thank you for all of your guidance and help, Dana!
Ashley and Jordan (parents of a 3 month old) TN
"Our naps have regulated and we have such a happy baby!"
We went from multiple wakings in the night and playing the paci game, to dropping the paci completely and sleeping through the night with maybe one wake up! We lay her down wide awake and she goes right to sleep! Our naps have regulated and we have such a happy baby!
So thankful for Sarah! We are grateful for Her guidance and support!
Tom & Tricia (parents of 3 monthly old CO
"Thanks so much Sarah, we so appreciated working with you as well. You are a wealth of knowledge and your support gave us the confidence we needed to help Rylan learn to sleep on her own."
Before working with Sarah we were spending up to an hour rocking our daughter to sleep every time and then hoping she wouldn't wake up as soon as we set her down. Plus her bedtime was unpredictable and very late. Heading back to work from maternity leave, I knew we needed a change that would foster better independent sleep skills so that we could all be happier and more well rested. However, I didn't know quite how to get there. Sarah helped us implement a routine that included an earlier bedtime and allowed our daughter to fall asleep on her own. Within the first day we saw improvement and by the end of the week she was sleeping great and also much happier and more well rested during awake times. We now have the knowledge and skills to continue supporting healthy sleep habits as our daughter grows, and that has been a game changer for her and for us.
Lauren (Mom of a 3 month old) CA
"Now, Adam can actually fall asleep all on his own in his crib and stay asleep for naps and at bed time!"
Working with Sarah as our sleep consultant was amazing and dramatically improved the sleep habits of our now 4 month old baby, Adam! We had fallen into a routine that was not sustainable - Adam was napping mainly in a carrier, and we were nursing to sleep and cosleeping at night. I was his sleep prop, and he had never really fallen asleep on his own. Adam also started waking up every 1-2 hours after 12am, and though I love cuddles, I knew it was time for Adam to not NEED me or any other prop to fall asleep.
Now, Adam can actually fall asleep all on his own in his crib and stay asleep for naps and at bed time!! It is SUCH difference from where we were before, and it only took a few days of working with Sarah and implementing the sleep plan she developed to see huge improvements. She was so encouraging and proactive throughout the whole process, providing us with daily suggestions on how to improve Adam’s schedule and sleep plan. I got the sense that she really cared about our family and wanted to equip us with the knowledge and confidence to continue to nurture Adam’s independent sleep skills even after our time with her was up. Our lives are soooooo much improved, and we are forever grateful!!

"Now "the boss", sleeps for 12 hours at night and a 1.5 hour nap, ALL IN HIS CRIB!"
Erica transformed our family from crisis mode to a happy well rested family. We were co-sleeping, praying to just get 7 hours of sleep and holding our 16 month old for naps. Now "the boss", sleeps for 12 hours at night and a 1.5 hour nap, ALL IN HIS CRIB!!!!!!! Before, if I left the bed, "the king" would wake up and that would be the start of our morning. NOW, I can take a shower, have breakfast and unload the dishwasher, all before my little angel wakes up. Run don't walk, to sign up for Erica's services.

"Even the days when she is "off" for whatever reason, I feel confident in my abilities to modify her plan and get her back on track."
Katie, I just wanted to email you one more time and say thank you again for all of your help with Cece. You've honestly changed our lives! With Cece sleeping better, the whole family is happier. It is wonderful having a (somewhat) predictable, well rested baby. I've been recommending you to everyone I know; I hope some of them follow through on it. Best money I've ever spent. Cece has been doing great. Even the days when she is "off" for whatever reason, I feel confident in my abilities to modify her plan and get her back on track. You've been a great teacher for momma and baby.

“working with Kelley gave us the tools to help our son go from multiple wakings a night to none."
Working with Kelley from SleepWise was a total game changer for us. I used to dread when the sun went down- knowing I would be awake with my 6 month old all night, followed by work the next morning. Though it wasn’t easy initially, working with Kelley gave us the tools to help our son go from multiple wakings a night to none. It’s also a dream to have our room back to ourselves. My husband and I told our friends to skip out on buying half the baby gear and use that money for sleep help! So worth it!
Jenny and Justin (Parents of 4 month old twins) OH
"Not only do we not have any more sleep props, but we have TWO babies sleeping 12 hours at night and taking consistent daily naps."
Before starting Sleep Wise our lives were unpredictable. With twins things are crazy enough and we needed some consistency and that’s what we got with Susan. Emma and Ella were decent sleepers before we started but there are TWO of them so we were getting up multiple times a night to reinsert their pacis and we had inconstant naps that seemed to be all over the place. These issues along with knowing we were ready for a schedule change pushed me to call Susan. I am so glad we did. Not only do we not have any more sleep props, but we have TWO babies sleeping 12 hours at night and taking consistent daily naps. I feel like a new person getting the sleep I need and knowing what to expect during the day. All I can say is that Sleep Wise is worth every single penny. It is the gift of sleep for the whole family!
Monica and Mark (Parents of a 4 Month Old) CA
"I feel well equipped with enough information to deal with any bumps that come our way."
We started training Eli when he was 14.5 weeks. Before starting, Eli wasn't a terrible sleeper, but he was still being swaddled, sleeping in a dock-a-tot, and using a pacifier for naps (not bedtime). He went to bed at 8pm, woke up for middle of the night feeds twice a night, along with a few other middle of the night wakings, and didn't necessarily have a specific wake time. He used to go down with a fight every time and would fuss for a while before actually falling asleep.
After using Susan from Sleep Wise, Eli now puts himself to sleep for all naps and for bedtime and the best part is, he doesn’t use any sleep props. He sleeps through the night and takes 3 solid naps throughout his days. He knows what to expect, and when to expect it. When he does go down for naps/bed, he doesn't fuss anymore, and instead he will smile at us from his crib. Granted it isn't this perfect all the time, but 85% of the time he does great. as for the other 15%, I feel well equipped with enough information to deal with any bumps that come our way. Thanks to Susan, I also have a great understanding of what to do moving forward as Eli grows and how to transition him from 3 naps to 2 and then to 1 nap. I feel confident that sleep is one issue that my family will not have to deal with at home!

"Under the program, she began sleeping thru the night on her 2nd night and her naps were regularly in the 1.5-3 hr range."
Hiring Katie is quite possibly the best thing we have done for our 15 month old girl (and us)!! Hailey never slept great and we kept making excuse after excuse for her (constantly sick, mouthful of teeth, lack of eating solids, etc.). The more time that passed the worse she got and the more our patience wore out. We knew we needed an expert and I feel like we struck gold with Katie. From the first time we spoke, I felt this tremendous sense of relief and peace. Not only is she highly experienced but she's also a fantastic person and kind, sympathetic, and encouraging. Just prior to starting our program Hailey was sleeping as horrible as a newborn if not worse - she woke every 2-3 hours at night and regularly napped under an hour. Under the program, she began sleeping thru the night on her 2nd night and her naps were regularly in the 1.5-3 hr range. We cannot even begin to express our tremendous gratitude to Katie for all of her help and wisdom and would very highly recommend her to any parent in need of a good night's sleep!!

"She is happier during the day, constantly smiling and squeaking in excitement when she wakes up."
Thank you Susan for the work and dedication that you've provided for our family. Bay was a sweet baby, but she wasn't so nice during naps and bedtime. Felipe and I used to call her "The Beast" because we terrified of her when bedtime comes around. We used to rock, sing, and pray that she would sleep for at least a few hours before waking and crying again. Since working with you, we've learned that Bay can sleep independently in her own crib. She is happier during the day, constantly smiling and squeaking in excitement when she wakes up. Felipe and I are enjoying every minute when she is awake because she's now well-rested. We are very pleased with the progress we've made. Bay says thanks!

"My little one is sleeping 10-12 hrs at night, sleeps about 1.5-2hrs for her naps, AND sleeps independently!!!! We have met EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our goals!!"
Before sleep training, my little one was waking up minimum 2-3 times a night, her longest stretch of sleep was maybe 4-5 hrs, sleeping only 30-40 minutes for naps, and was dependent on SO many sleep props such as the swaddle, pacifier, bottle, holding, rocking, walking, etc.
After hiring Sarah Walden from Sleepwise Consulting, my little one is sleeping 10-12 hrs at night, sleeps about 1.5-2hrs for her naps, AND sleeps independently!!!! We have met EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our goals!!
Working with Sarah has been AMAZING! She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, supportive, patient, and helps you achieve your goals!!
If you are on the fence about hiring a sleep consultant, I highly recommend Sarah and SleepWise Consulting! So worth it!

"Susan helped us teach out son to build his own independent sleep skills to the point that he WANTS to sleep when he needs it rather than fighting sleep."
Working with Susan Lowman at Sleepwise Consulting was the best decision I ever made for my son and my whole family. We followed the Baby Wise method with our older son and he took to it well but our younger son did not. We tried sleep training him for two weeks on our own and did not get the results we wanted. It was just terrible for everyone. What we knew even before working with Sleep Wise is that sleep training is not just about putting a baby in a crib and letting him or her cry. Sleep training requires an overhaul of the baby's entire day and night sleep routines and habits. Our problem was that we had tried everything and worked hard for good day and independent night sleep but we didn't know about all of the "hidden" sleep props we had and the habits that we had that were making it harder for our son to sleep. Working with Susan was such a pleasure. Finally we had an expert telling us exactly what we needed to do so we didn't have to play anymore guessing games. We went from following advise from moms on facebook (who frankly don't know what they are doing anymore than I did!) to working with a trained expert who was able to give us a plan to follow. Our son went from waking numerous times per night to sleeping through the night with a simple bedtime routine and taking long and predictable naps. He even started daycare this week and took two long naps despite the noise and light in the room. Susan helped us teach out son to build his own independent sleep skills to the point that he WANTS to sleep when he needs it rather than fighting sleep. We couldn't be happier with the result. Thank you so much to Katie Pitts, to Susan, and the entire Sleepwise team for helping all of us get the sleep we need!

"This program works and you will not regret the investment in your child's (and your own) sleep!"
Andrew is our second baby and has been the most easygoing baby you could imagine since he was born. He just has always had one glaring problem: he follows in his big sister's footsteps as a horrible sleeper! I managed his poor sleep fairly well for the first five months. He was nursed or bounced to sleep, often held for naps and even long stretches at night. This all became unmanageable when he would not sleep at all unless he was nursing. Even holding him, rocking him, and bouncing him became ineffective, which meant dad could no longer help. It would take 2-4 hours to get him to fall asleep and stay asleep at night. He would wake up every 30-60 minutes; best case scenario I would get one two-hour stretch. I knew it wasn't possible to continue that way and I did not want to make the same mistakes I made with my first and continue down this path just hoping things would improve. I knew from experience it does not "get better with time." Susan was very patient with me. We first spoke when my son was 3 months and I was trying out another sleep program. It didn't work so at 5 months I called her back and said "I'm ready!!"
Susan listened to everything that was going on with us and Andrew. She created a customized plan that addressed his specific sleep associations rather than forcing a one size fits all into our situation. She was more responsive than I had imagined she would have been. We had multiple calls, dozens of emails back and forth. Andrew was sleeping through the night by night 2, and putting himself to sleep with a short cry at night 3 and falling asleep peacefully by night 4. This is not a cry-it-out program. This is a program that structures your entire day to set your child up for the best sleep opportunity when it is rest time. Andrew sleeps 11-12 hours every night. He falls asleep peacefully for naps and night. His daytime sleep is taking longer to come together, but we will continue to work on it. We are at a place where we are happy as a family with our progress. I was impressed that Susan was willing to stick it out with us until we were totally satisfied even if that meant longer than 2 weeks.
I cannot thank Susan enough for helping us get Andrew's sleep under control. If you have a baby who is not sleeping, know it does not always get better with time. My 3.5 year old is a prime example of that! This program works and you will not regret the investment in your child's (and your own) sleep!

"knowing our son is happily dreaming away and getting the proper rest for him to be a big boy!"
Working with Katie has changed our lives, seriously! Before starting the program our 4.5 month old son woke an average of six time a night, often more! He used sleep props to fall asleep and I always worried he was never well rested. He now sleeps 12 hours a night with one feeding (sometimes no wakes at all) and naps well at daycare. His parents now sleep well too, knowing our son is happily dreaming away and getting the proper rest for him to be a big boy! Katie offered us a detailed plan and was a supportive coach throughout the process --- I HIGHLY recommend her!

"The plan she put together was completely personalized to my baby, our family, and our goals."
As a second time mom, there were things I had figured out with my first child that made me more confident in facing with my second child. Of course, you've heard very child is different. My hope was that would mean my second baby would be a perfect sleeper. I struggled with my first born for eighteen months. I was so thankful and optimistic when Graham was a good sleeper for the first three months of his life. I got lucky, I thought! Because it was certainly not out of any knowledge or effort on my end. He was just a good sleeper on his own.
Then at four months, he started having night wakings, and I responded the only way I knew how which was to nurse him back to sleep. My pediatrician cautioned that this might set up a bad pattern, but I thought he's grown so much maybe he really is hungry at night and I didn't mind the interruption. At six months, he upped his nightly feedings and refused to sleep in a travel crib when we would take trips for the holidays. He ended up in our bed.
By seven months, he was up three times on a good night and six times on a bad night. There were a lot of bad nights.
The naps were also going from good to bad to worse. He got to the point where here would only sleep on my lap after nursing to sleep. I needed help. Professional help.
I knew from my experience with my first son that my mommy heart could not handle extinction sleep methods. I wanted a more gentle, yet effective approach. I also knew I needed someone to hold me accountable so just following a book was not going to work.
After much research, I contacted Jeannine with Sleepwise Consultants. She was highly recommended by other moms in the Frisco Moms Squad Facebook group. I will be forever grateful for her wisdom and care during this process. Through her confident guidance and expertise, I now have a baby who can put himself to sleep, sleeps through the night, and takes good naps. It's amazing.
The plan she put together was completely personalized to my baby, our family, and our goals. She was quick to answer questions and give reassurance. I loved how she closely monitored our shared sleep log, and would reach out with instructions in how to make needed adjustments when she saw red flags. I now feel confident that I have the tools to tackle any hiccups or make necessay adjustments as my baby grows. It's also comforting to know I have someone I trust that I can reach out to if we get stuck again.
At the end of the two weeks, Graham earned a certificate of achievement. It will certainly always be a point of pride for me not only that we conquered this together, but how we did it. And we couldn't have done it without Jeannine.

"The whole family is happier with his new sleep skills. We feel empowered as parents!!"
Our child was a decent sleeper until the dreaded 4-month sleep regression. As working parents, waking up every 1-2 hours (needing a feed to fall back asleep) was wearing on us. Everyone told us it would "get better" but it didn't ever seem to improve. We were scared of our child and scared of the night. We were at each other’s throats. After 6 weeks of torturing ourselves and our baby, we decided to call Kelley.
What did we not want to do? Walk out of the room without looking back and leaving him to cry (which is what our pediatrician told us to do). We also wanted to preserve the night feed if he needed it. Kelley helped us change our nighttime routine and the first night he went to sleep WITHOUT A PEEP! After only two nights he was down to one nighttime feeding, which Kelley helped us understand that he still needed (but also offered me suggestions to help cut it out when it is appropriate). He also has a great naptime routine that we can predict and schedule our day around. Kelley was so responsive to emails and phone calls. She was enthusiastic and she gave us confidence in sleep training.
The whole family is happier with his new sleep skills. We feel empowered as parents!!

"This program was life changing for us. Truly and utterly life changing."
We struggled month after month with getting our babies to sleep more than 3 hours at a time. They all 3 would wake up 3-4 times each night, leaving us in the most exhausted state we could have ever imagined. They had to be rocked, held, fed, every time they woke up to go back to sleep and it was pure exhaustion. During the day, we rocked them to sleep and they would nap around 30-45 mins a couple times a day. They were awful at night. The witching hour was like 3-4 hours every night of feeding and rocking and being so tired we would crash and not eat most nights. Then I called Sleepwise and was paired with Jeannine and our lives were changed instantly! She got us on a schedule that makes life so easy its insane. My family, including my parents and sisters, are amazed at what a huge turn around there’s been for our night times. They are going down awake, taking two 1.5hr naps each day and sleeping 11 hours a night. We get SLEEP! And they are so much happier now that they get sleep too. This program was life changing for us. Truly and utterly life changing. Jeannine was our saving grace!

"moms, it is OK TO ASK FOR HELP! I am not embarrassed anymore to admit I needed help."
Here was my life at night. My son, who was 11 months at the time, was waking up (not kidding) every single hour! I would go into his room, rock him back to sleep, then try to gracefully put him back in his bed praying he wouldn’t wake up because he would scream and the process would start all over again. My child since birth, would only sleep a maximum of 2 hours EVER! We even did bed sharing for 3 months because I was becoming a monster being sleep deprived. At this point, I was losing my mind and honestly starting to resent my son.
I’m sharing this because, moms, it is OK TO ASK FOR HELP! I am not embarrassed anymore to admit I needed help. Well, a mom on a nursing group I’m in reach out to me on messenger about a sleep consultant she used. I have read a lot about them previously, but never felt willing enough to spend money on one. NOW going through it, I would have paid double! My son in 3 Days time, went from waking every hour to sleeping 8pm to 7:30am every night !!!! I am not joking!!!!
I wish I would have know about Jeannine Conte 6 months ago! I wish all you struggling moms the best of luck and restful nights.

"Having Dana's guidance was invaluable!"
We are not constantly dreading what is going to happen at night now with our baby's sleep and we get to spend more time together. It's a win-win!"
Cole (Mom of a 20 month old) CO
"He knows exactly what to expect and has been such a happier child now that he is rested and knows the routine."
Our son was never a great sleeper. Around 18months I found myself rocking him fully to sleep, feeding him an 8-10oz bottle until he was out, placing him very slowly into he crib and tip toeing out of the room. Only to have him wake up about 20 minutes later. It had snowballed and he started requiring more and more assistance to fall asleep. I was losing my mind and becoming a person that no one really wanted to be around. I was very apprehensive when first working with Jennifer, he was obsessed with his bottle and he was an older baby and I just thought there is no way this will change. Literally the first night with no bottle and no rocking he went to sleep within 40 minutes, and a nap with in 20 minutes and it only got better and better with sleep each day. He knows exactly what to expect and has been such a happier child now that he is rested and knows the routine. Jennifer walked me through everything and had a very concise plan that made so much sense. It was so worth the money and the time. I only wish I had done it sooner.

"My wife and I have been able to spend quality time together again and it's all because of Kelli and the Sleepwise plan!"
Before contacting Kelli, my wife and I were struggling to get Emorie to sleep and had fallen into co-sleeping, using a Doc-a-tot, a sleep suit, feeding to get her to sleep, etc. Event then, we never got consistent sleep as Emmie would wake up 3-5 times per night and we were just as exhausted and irritable as our baby.
We are not enjoying multiple quality naps during the day and 12 hour night sleeps along with a happy baby that is well rested! My wife and I have been able to spend quality time together again and it's all because of Kelli and the Sleepwise plan! It is the best money we have ever spent! Thank you so much Kelli!

"Life is so much better now that we are all well rested! Thank you!"
Our life consisted of early wake ups, no naps and a bed time process that took over an hour. We had a very tired and cranky baby. In just two weeks, she successfully started napping for 1+ hours multiple times a day and bedtime is a breeze. Working with Jeannine was great, she helped us in so many ways and we now have given Oaklee healthy sleep habits for life! Life is so much better now that we are all well rested! Thank you!
Debra (Mom of 10 month old) TX
"there was an immediate (dare I say, "miraculous") improvement!"
We are so thankful for Jeannine's help with getting little Amber to sleep! Before reaching out to Sleep Wise Consulting, Amber had slept well until she turned about four months old. Fast forward to ten months old, and she was still waking every two hours and demanding to be nursed at each of those wakings. Naps were only about 30 minutes long, twice or three times a day. She was still in good spirits, but we were all exhausted. My oldest daughter (18 yo) had to wear earplugs to bed.
After the initial phone conversation, Jeannine gave us some tips to start with while she put together a full plan that would jive with our existing schedules and future goals. When I put it all into place, there was an immediate (dare I say, "miraculous") improvement! Amber went down for sleep easily and although she woke a few times the first few nights, she did not demand my assistance. I never had to leave my bed! After only a few nights, she slept the entire night with zero wakings! Her naps have consistently been 1.5 - 2 hours at home, and I can actually plan to get work done in those hours!
It has been a complete, sanity-saving experience. I would strongly encourage other families to reach out when they feel they are in need of assistance.

"This is the best decision we could have made not only for Kutter but for my husband and I to have some alone time for the first time since Kutter was born!"
Our 17 month old little boy had always slept with us at night and I have held him for every nap since he was born! After just a few nights of working with Kelli, our sweet boy started sleeping 12 hours at night! This is the best decision we could have made not only for Kutter but for my husband and I to have some alone time for the first time since Kutter was born!

"Our little guy did amazing and slept through the night on the second night! We couldn’t believe it! It’s been 3 weeks and he’s a whole different child!"
I finally decided to make the call to a sleep consultant when my 6 month old was waking 7-8x a night and taking 1 hour naps during the day. Needless to say he was miserable all the time and it started effecting his eating schedule as well. When asked, how much does he eat? Or how long does he sleep? I would just shrug my shoulders!!! Our days could only be described as chaos, and that was also taking a toll on our young marriage!!! We were all so tired and our days revolved around keeping a little Human happy, which seemed impossible.
Sarah was very confident on the phone that we could get this all under control. After she relayed the plan to me I was very excited to get to it and get to sleeping! Our little guy did amazing and slept through the night on the second night! We couldn’t believe it! It’s been 3 weeks and he’s a whole different child! He’s eating so much better and taking great naps during the day, and now sleeps 11-12 hours straight through the night! Personally I feel like a whole new person, my life feels back on track and under control again!
We can’t thank Sarah enough for literally changing our lives! We are all so much happier, and well rested!!!

"I am overjoyed to say that my little man sleeps 11-12 hours at night with little or no crying out."
Kelli is absolutely phenomenal! I truly wondered whether this program could remotely help Jackson but knew something had to give. I was desperate for sleep because my 13 month old had never slept more than 2 1/2 - 3 hours at once and lately was up hourly. After my initial consultation with Kelli, I decided I had to make a drastic choice. It has proven to be one of the best choices ever. I am overjoyed to say that my little man sleeps 11-12 hours at night with little or no crying out. Kelli has been the most patient and helpful coach during this trying time. The money spent was more than worth it. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner!!!
