Meghan and Mike (Parents of a 3 and 6 Year Old) IL
"We don't know what to do with ourselves now that we have all this time on our hands."
Before sleep training I was spending upwards of an hour laying on a bean bag waiting for my two girls (ages 3 and 6) to fall asleep in the same bed. It wiped out nearly the entire night and Meghan I barely saw each other once bedtime started. By the time it was through I was usually too tired to stay up and do anything and just went to bed (and in some instances simply fell asleep on the bean bag!).
We implemented the sleep plan outlined by Dana and very quickly found our lives completely transformed. The girls were sleeping in their own beds and the bean bag was gone within the week. "Why didn't we do this years ago!" my wife said one night after both girls were asleep in less than 5 minutes.
Now Meghan and I can spend time together after bedtime. If only Dana had a program for couples trying to find something they both would be interested in watching on TV! We don't know what to do with ourselves now that we have all this time on our hands.

"Our friends and family can’t believe we don’t have to rock him to sleep every night!"
Before working with Susan, Henry was taking short, inconsistent naps at daycare (sometimes no naps!), and he was waking usually 2x/night to eat “snacks.” He was taking all of his naps at home in his Rock n Play. My husband and I both work full time, and we were exhausted.
We had a long journey with Susan. Every time we started the program, Henry would get sick. He got a stomach virus that lasted more than 2 weeks, then he was hospitalized for RSV, then he got bronchiolitis. But Susan stayed with us until Henry was healthy. She worked around our work schedules and Henry’s daycare needs and made sure the program she built worked for our family.
It was hard - so hard! - but we did it with Susan’s constant support, and we are so glad we did! Henry now consistently sleeps through the night - we just lay him in his crib after bedtime routine, and he puts himself right to sleep. Our friends and family can’t believe we don’t have to rock him to sleep every night! He is actually taking naps at daycare - they aren’t great, but they’re happening, despite daycare not really following any of our instructions. lol
My husband and I routinely tell people it’s the best money we ever spent. We just can’t recommend Susan and Sleepwise program enough! Thank you!!

"We still can't believe that our baby who used to get up over 20 times a night, now sleeps through the night and takes two full naps during the day!"
We still can't believe that our baby who used to get up over 20 times a night, now sleeps through the night and takes two full naps during the day. Casey was wonderful with giving us customized instructions and supporting us along the way. We are so very happy with the results!
Catherine (mom of a 10 month old)
"It was the best money we've ever spent! Now our daughter sleeps through the night and takes 2 long naps every day."
I used to tell people that my daughter hated to sleep. She would wake up every couple hours and the only way we could get her back to sleep was to feed her (if we were lucky) Her naps were never consistent and my husband and I were at our breaking point... then we hired Casey.
It was the best money we've ever spent! Now our daughter sleeps through the night and takes 2 long naps every day. She even slept like a champ while we were traveling to multiple locations this summer. My husband and I are so grateful for Casey!
Nickie (mom of a 6 month old)
"Deciding to work with Casey was one of the best parenting decisions we've made, and worth every single penny!"
Deciding to work with Casey was one of the best parenting decisions we've made, and worth every single penny! Casey is extremely knowledgeable, reliable, communicative, and understanding. She laid a foundation for understanding our baby's sleep needs, and empowered us to keep building on that great foundation as we journey on without her.
My 6 month old now puts herself to sleep completely on her own, sleeps through the night, and takes consistent naps. For me, one of the biggest rewards has been to see how HAPPY my baby is now!
Lainey (mom of a 2 year old)
"I was spending an hour in my son's room every night, sitting by his crib and holding his hand through the bars until I could sneak out."
I was spending an hour in my son's room every night, sitting by his crib and holding his hand through the bars until I could sneak out. He was also crying to come into our room by 9:30 PM. As two working parents, that meant we no longer had any "us" time in the evenings.
With Casey's guidance, advice and support, we not have a sweet boy who will go to sleep on his own and sleeps through the night. Not only did she give us a well rested family, but the confidence to deal with issues that might arise in the future!
Stefani and Anthony (Parents of a 10-Week Old) FL
"What was important to me was how she made me feel, which was like a friend, not just like a customer."
We had a very rough time before we started with Dana from Sleep Wise. Our 10-week old son slept at night for about 2-3 hours at best, then would wake every 45 minutes to an hour after that. During the day we followed no schedule whatsoever. He did not take good naps at all. My husband and I were both struggling mentally and emotionally. Sleep deprivation and frustration led us both to a bad state of mind. We tried many sleep positions, and props and ways to try to get him to sleep and nothing was working well.
I decided to contact Dana because I knew I needed help and we could not do this alone. Dana understood exactly what we were going through and could not have been more pleasant to work with. She was exactly what I needed and more. What was important to me was how she made me feel, which was like a friend, not just like a customer.
So how has our life changed since working with SleepWise? Well our baby is sleeping 11-12 hours through the night. And his naps have definitely improved. He is sleeping in his crib and prop-free! I cannot say that this was easy on us or was like magic. It took time and patience and a lot of coaching from Dana, but, IT WORKED. And we could not be happier.
Truly, I thank Dana from the bottom of my heart because I feel like she rescued me and my family. This was the absolute best thing we could have done for our baby because he now has healthy sleeping habits and is getting full rest. It was also the best thing we did for us. It brought us closer together and made us a happy little family again. THANK YOU DANA! We could not have achieved this without you. I highly recommend this program and cannot say 'thank you' enough!

"I can’t believe not long ago, I was holding him for every single nap and it was taking over an hour to get him to bed. Life is good!!"
Thank you for everything. I can’t believe not long ago, I was holding him for every single nap and it was taking over an hour to get him to bed. Life is good!!

"We have both learned SO much and now have a baby who takes wonderful naps, puts himself to sleep, and sleeps through the night."
My husband and I had been in survival mode since the birth of our second son. After 5 months of sleep deprivation our son was an over-tired, cranky baby who couldn't sleep more than a few hours ever. We were at our wits end. At night he'd wake up 8-10 times and his naps were at best, 45 minutes. I received info about Katie from a friend on social media. After our initial 15 minute call we were SOLD. Katie is so caring, educated and patient. She's super responsive and genuinely invested in having you and your child succeed.
We have both learned SO much and now have a baby who takes wonderful naps, puts himself to sleep, and sleeps through the night. Our son become sick during our sleep training and Katie even stuck with us a few days past our plan to make sure he was OK. We are so thankful for our experience with Katie. Our son is now rested, and so are we. THANK YOU Katie!!!

Joelle and Ryan (parents of a 6 month old) WA
"We were surprised how quickly it started to work and how painless it actually was."
We were hesitant to hire a sleep consultant and tried listening to well-meaning friends and family and buying books (so many books) to try to help our baby boy learn to sleep. Nothing we tried worked and and our sleep deprivation was affecting our parenting, our relationship, and our careers. Thank goodness we found Stephanie! Her approach was equal parts knowledgeable and compassionate. She treated us as if we were all part of the same family and it was her number one goal to get our son to sleep through the night. We were surprised how quickly it started to work and how painless it actually was. And when we needed small adjustments, Stephanie was immediately able to course correct to help our son sleep better. It felt like she was always available to us with encouragement, support, and thoughtful feedback. Our son now naps consistently and regularly and sleeps through the night. We are happier parents with a much happier child. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Stephanie!
Natalia and Kevin (Parents of a 6 Month Old) CA
"You were always there for us! We never felt rushed during our phone calls, on the other hand, you went above and beyond!"
Your precise direction and instructions for us has resulted in an absolute success. Our doctor had told us if Evan did not learn to self sooth, he would continue with the night terrors for potentially 2 years. This was beyond emotional and terrifying for us, our baby was waking every 1.5 hrs for months screaming with what the doctor diagnosed as night terrors. We were helpless and distraught seeing our baby experience this. The lack of sleep was ripping our family apart.
Dana, you were God sent and have substantially improved our quality of life as well as health and well-being of our little guy. We followed your instructions to the T which resulted in an absolute success. Now Evan is sleeping 11-12 hrs through the night and has 2 scheduled naps during the day. You were always there for us! We never felt rushed during our phone calls, on the other hand, you went above and beyond!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤️

"Victor went from waking up 8 to 10 times at night to waking up only once within days. And we just dropped the midnight feeding following your direction so he now sleeps for almost 12 hours at night!"
I really enjoyed working with you to help Victor start sleeping better. I think you gave a very good advice and suggestions, but were flexible and understanding. I really appreciated your timely responses. Victor went from waking up 8 to 10 times at night to waking up only once within days. And we just dropped the midnight feeding following your direction so he now sleeps for almost 12 hours at night. Thank you for your help and support!

“She was all smiles when she got up… and so were my husband and I!”
I’ve been drafting this email for a couple weeks trying to find the right way to say thank you for how much you helped our family. I’m happy I waited so long so I could let you know that Maddy has been sleeping through the night since Friday! That’s 4 nights in a row. She’s also been doing amazing with naps. She’s by far the happiest baby I have ever encountered. And I’m not just being a biased mom- friends and family will back up this statement!
Besides bringing so much happiness to our family through the joy of sleep, I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the confidence of knowing I’m doing right by Maddy when it comes to sleep. This was the one area of motherhood I felt like I was floundering in. Well, not any more! Naps at home have been going amazingly- and most importantly you’ve given me the skills to finally feel confident in leaving the house with her for longer than an hour at a time. We’ve already had a couple adventures these 2 weeks since we’ve finished the program. We had a great time as a family and Daryl and I are both thrilled to have a bit of a social life back on the weekends.

You took a huge weight off of our shoulders, Dana, and we now know exactly what to do with our baby’s sleep! She is sleeping through the night and we are too and are in better moods throughout the day.

"My husband was skeptical about sleep training, ("Couldn't we just learn this sleep training stuff from some book?"), but after seeing how difficult it can be to sleep train without proper guidance, he and I both are telling all of our friends that it's worth every penny."
Before Sarah came into our lives, we were lost as to how to handle our little one's sleep. Miles took very inconsistent and unpredictable naps during the day, and his bedtime was anywhere between 10pm-12am. He wouldn't sleep unless held, rocked, swayed and swaddled, and then we always risked waking him when transferring him to the bassinet or rock and play in our bedroom. That baby room with a brand new crib and rocking chair? Never used it. We couldn't even begin to imagine a baby sleeping in there! And the worst part of it all was the constant doubt and questioning - Is he getting enough sleep? Why isn't he sleeping? He's supposed to be sleeping, right? Should we wake him up? Has he been sleeping too long? Maybe he's hungry - should we feed him? Why is he crying? Should we pick him up or let him cry it out? Are we doing any of this right??? And all the books we read just made it more confusing. Without anything to compare it to, we thought this kind of sleep "schedule" was as good as it was going to get.
Thank goodness for sleep consultants! Working with Sarah was one of the best decisions we made for our new family. She dispelled doubts, answered all of our questions, and gave us back a sense of predictability and control. After just the first day of sleep training, our little one was falling asleep on his own, in his crib, without the need for swaddling, swaying or rocking. He's no longer dependent on a pacifier to calm his fussing, either. He now has a predictable schedule for naps during the day, his bedtime shifted to 7pm instead of 11pm, and he has been able to sleep through the night (a whole 12 hours!) with just one waking, or no waking at all.
My husband was skeptical about sleep training, ("Couldn't we just learn this sleep training stuff from some book?"), but after seeing how difficult it can be to sleep train without proper guidance, he and I both are telling all of our friends that it's worth every penny.
Krissy and Bryan (Parents of a 2.5 Year Old) NC
"You have literally saved our lives."
You have literally saved our lives. I’m serious. We had been going on 8 weeks of waking multiple times per night and/or sleeping in bed with our 2.5 year old son.
Any parent who has been there knows you get desperate and you know that you are creating bad habits but you JUST NEED SLEEP! James was needing one of us to lay with him until he fell asleep which typically took an hour. Then when (not if) he woke up in the middle of the night he needed one of us to again lay with him to fall back asleep. We soon just began switching nights with him and basically slept in his bed those nights. We were in a bad pattern and didn’t know how to get out. Not to mention we were all tired, cranky and not dealing with our emotions well. Our household was tense to say the least.
It did take every bit of the 3 weeks to get on the right path but we are there! With Dana’s help we are now getting James to bed within a few minutes of finishing his routine and he has slept through the night 3 nights in a row now! I’m sure we will have some bumps but we both feel much more prepared to handle them. I also have to mention that having that 3rd party who is an expert and objective helped us as parents not to argue about what to do, we just listened to the plan. It wasn’t magic or instant but I do think we have set our son up for better sleeping habits now. Thank you again, Dana for all your help, knowledge and encouragement!

"We are so glad that we decided to reach out and get some help from Katie, we only wish we had done it sooner!"
We can’t say enough about how amazing our experience was with Sleep Wise consulting. After months of night wakings and short naps, we decided to reach out and get some help from Katie. We are so glad that we did, we only wish we had done it sooner! Our 11 month old would wake up every night one to three times, and her naps would last about 30-45 minutes. After a surprisingly short amount of time working with Katie, our little lady started sleeping through the night (11-12 hours) and taking 1-2 hour naps. Katie was both professional and empathetic in helping us find the best way to get our daughter the sleep she needs. Thank you Sleep Wise. We will be forever grateful.
Megan Quitkin (mom of 5 year old twins) NY
"We are so pleased with how wonderfully this has worked!"
Before working with Emily, our 5 year old twins were having a tough time sleeping through the night. Bedtime sometimes took hours with multiple requests for more hugs and kisses or trips to the bathroom. Then, once they did fall asleep it only lasted for a few hours before both kids were in our beds until morning. My husband and I were exhausted from the disrupted sleep and longed to get back to when they both slept soundly through the night as babies and toddlers. Emily was a huge help to our family in establishing an easier and more structured bedtime that allows both children to fall asleep quickly and easily in their own beds and stay in bed until morning. We are so pleased with how wonderfully this has worked!
Emily Henderson (parent of a 5 month old) CA
"I'm so glad we went with this program."
Before I contacted Ashlee with Sleepwise consulting my 4 month old son Jack was consistently inconsistent. He would take about 4 naps a day ranging from 30 minutes to an hour and he would wake up at 4 am ready to get the day started. Ashlee helped me get a schedule and routines in place and helped me realize that my son needed more awake time so that he would nap better. I'm so glad we went with this program. My son sleeps for about 12 hours each night, waking at 7 am ready to go. He also takes 2 naps a day and goes down for them easily. I would highly recommend this program and I would enthusiastically recommend Ashlee as your consultant.
Katie (Mom of 10 month old) IL
"I appreciated the thoroughness and professionalism that was displayed every emotional step of the way."
Thank you Erica for saving this mom’s sanity! My 10-month old son was waking every 2-3 hours since birth and could only sleep in a Rock n Play. Lack of sleep for this momma was leading to immense frustration and helplessness. I thank God for sending Erica to us! Erica answered every question I had, was incredibly knowledgeable and reassured me every step of the way- she fixed our problems the first night! I never thought I would enjoy the bedtime process, but now I look forward to our bedtime routine! I appreciated the thoroughness and professionalism that was displayed every emotional step of the way (I cried during the consultation!). Our Niko is well-rested and happy and so is this mom!
Murphie and Kevin (parents of a 4 month old) VA
"My husband and I finally feel human again now that we can both get a good night's sleep."
I returned to work after maternity leave and our second child, a baby girl, joined her brother at daycare. Our baby was not a naturally good sleeper unlike her brother. My husband and I did our best to function on a lack of sleep, but it was creating a lot stress and strain in our family. We tried reading different sleep training books and doing it on our own, but we felt that they didn't have enough specific advice on how to sleep train a baby that was in daycare.
So, my husband and I decided to start researching a sleep coach. We received a referral from our doctor's office for Kim. After an initial phone call, my husband and I decided to move forward with hiring Kim as our sleep coach. Thank goodness we did. It's been the best decision we made. Kim was with us every step of the way -- from mitigating issues or new circumstances to providing us with a needed confidence boost -- as we worked to implement a plan to teach our baby to sleep. After a couple of weeks, she learned to self soothe and put herself to sleep. My husband and I finally feel human again now that we can both get a good night's sleep. We whole heartedly recommend Kim to anyone who's looking for a sleep coach.

"She’s helping me lay a healthy foundation for my newborn and while it’s hard work, I know it’s SO worth it."
I cannot say enough good things about Dana! She was heaven sent when we worked with her over a year ago with my oldest, who is still sleeping like a dream! Which is exactly why I purchased the prenatal package for my newest baby. She’s helping me lay a healthy foundation for my newborn and while it’s hard work, I know it’s SO worth it. Dana is such a genuine person, too! I truly love talking to her, she’s a great person!
Tina & Nigel Prentice (parents of a 3 month old) TX
"Sleep Wise Consulting and Katie are definitely the best gift we ever gave to ourselves. Our family is now resting peacefully and happier than ever!"
Katie is by far the best assistance our family has ever received, hands down. We had a rather tough time getting our newborn baby girl to sleep. She would wake up two to three times a night and could only fall asleep in our arms. After 30 minutes to an hour of rocking singing, bouncing, etc. we would finally get her to sleep to only have her wake up within five minutes of laying her down. We were exhausted to say the least! We tried a few well known books, but the self help approach just wasn't getting it done.
We Googled sleep consultants and found Sleep Wise Consulting. Katie immediately responded and shortly thereafter gave us a consultation. She was very thorough in her assessment and told us she has had 100% success rate, and we could have the same if we remained consistent with the sleep plan. And so we did. It was absolutely amazing how fast our baby girl adapted to the new sleep plan. After one night of training, she was sleeping through the entire night! She is now napping 3 to 4 times a day- perfect for our baby's age, anywhere from one hour to two hours each. There are no more sleep props - we simply lay her down in the bed and she falls right to sleep.
The first night of the plan Katie was with us the entire night until the baby went to sleep. The following day, she started communicating with us first thing in the morning and was with us every second of the day for our naps and bedtime. She was very comforting and knowledgeable throughout the entire plan. She never left our side or made us feel like she didn’t have time for our questions (and all of this while she is raising her own family). Her help was invaluable! Sleep Wise Consulting and Katie are definitely the best gift we ever gave to ourselves. Our family is now resting peacefully and happier than ever.

"I am so glad I invested in Kim with Sleep Wise Consulting!"
I am so glad I invested in Kim with Sleep Wise Consulting. Kim worked with my specific needs and created a comprehensive and easy to follow plan which resulted in better sleep much quicker than I expected. I especially appreciated the level of genuine support along the way. Thank you so much for helping us!
Amy Leipziger (mom of a 4.5 year old) NY
"Working with Emily and seeing this success has finally given me peace of mind!”
Just one month ago, bedtime was something I dreaded because it took on average 90 minutes before our 4.5 year old son would fall asleep close to 9pm and involved time outs and cajoling him to go back to bed And he came to our bed every night and would toss and turn frequently waking up at 5am insisting on playing. Needless to say, we were exhausted! And it was made harder by the addition of our daughter who needed my attention at night. Two kids demanding middle of the night attention pushed us to the breaking point. We thought we had tried everything so when our pediatrician
recommended working with Emily we decided we had nothing to lose.
We now have no hassles at bedtime, and I no longer worry about what time he’s coming into our room and how little sleep I will get. We’ve also seen a major impact on our son developmentally. His language skills have improved dramatically - he’s much more verbal and engaged, and I can only credit that to him finally getting adequate sleep and having a consistent routine.
Working with Emily and seeing this success has finally given me peace of mind!
Katie Carroll (Mom of a 6 month old) NY
"I thought I had the baby that would never catch on to sleep training. I’m relieved now that’s not the case and happy to be sleeping through the night myself for the first time in half a year!"
Thankfully after following a strict routine for three challenging weeks, Josie is sleeping 11-12 hours at night. Sometimes she wakes up at night and fusses but puts herself back to sleep in under 10 minuets. Gone are the nights of bouncing her on a yoga ball to get her to sleep and then gently lowering her into the crib trying desperately not to wake her up. She sleeps a full two hours for naps too now. I thought I had the baby that would never catch on to sleep training! I’m relieved now that’s not the case and happy to be sleeping through the night myself for the first time in half a year!
Mandy (Mom of an 7 Month Old) NC
"Watching my little one put himself to sleep at night, sleeping through the entire night, and then waking up to play in his crib quietly in the morning is the best feeling."
Working with Dana was the best decision we could have made! I had been working with our son for at least a month, doing everything you read in the books to get him to sleep and he just wasn’t having it. I was hesitate to use a sleep consultant, honestly because I wasn’t sure what Dana could change that I wasn’t already doing. During our first call she was so confident she could get my son to sleep through the night that I didn’t even think twice about starting the sleep journey with her. The changes that Dana were able to help me make really made a HUGE difference, and put Klein in the best position possible to start sleeping through the night… and then he finally did! It helped me so much to have an expert to help navigate me through the sleep issues, solve them, and reassure me about all of the other details in between. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. It is an amazing feeling when everyone in the house is well rested! Watching my little one put himself to sleep at night, sleeping through the entire night, and then waking up to play in his crib quietly in the morning is the best feeling, and I owe it all to Dana.
Pam and Matt (Parents of 5 month old) AZ
“I can't imagine where we would be now if we hadn't reached out for help. Such a great investment!!"
We can't thank Erica enough! When we started Landon was 5 months and up every couple hours. I ended up sleeping with him in the LazyBoy by 4 am so we had at least a few hours of sleep. Within a short time we made huge nighttime strides and he started putting himself to sleep for naps and nighttime. Landon was a tricky guy with early morning wakings and short naps... but Erica stuck with us until we found a balance we can all work with and Landon is getting the sleep he needs to be happy and grow! I can't imagine where we would be now if we hadn't reached out for help. Such a great investment!!
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.
Kendra (mom of a 4 week old) IN
"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!
Lindsay and Sam (parents of 7.5 month old twins) IL
"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!

"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!

"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.

"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!

"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!

"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!

"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!

"We are now two well-rested parents and our son is ringing in his first birthday by finally having a consistent sleep schedule AND sleeping through the night."
Dana came highly recommended and working with her has been life changing to say the least. We are now two well-rested parents and our son is ringing in his first birthday by finally having a consistent sleep schedule AND sleeping through the night - Thank you, Dana!

"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.

"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!

"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!"
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.

"Thanks again! Mommy and Daddy now sleep through the night too."

"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!
Erin (mom of a 2 year old) IL
"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."

"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!!!

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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!!!

"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!!

"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!

"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!!

"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!

"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!

"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!

"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!

"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!

Thank you so very much, Dana! It's been a dream to work with you and we're so excited to have Camden in dream land too! You've been such a great support and I'm super appreciative of your patience while we learned how to teach Cami to sleep on her own!

"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!
