8 Tips for Working from Home with Kids
One of the biggest challenges during the pandemic is parenting young children (who are now home much more) while juggling work. As a business owner, operating from an office in my home for over five years, I have learned that this does not mean our...
Quiet Time Tips and Tricks
When your toddler reaches that dreaded day and drops her nap, don’t panic. You each can still have a break when you replace it with Quiet Time. But what exactly is Quiet Time, and how in the world do you enforce something like that? The good news...
“We can go on-and-on about how and why this was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made as parents…”
We explained our sleep situation to our doula, and she quickly recommended we reach out to Dana at Sleep Wise for a free-of-charge no-pressure consultation. We were so impressed with Dana during our initial consultation that we decided on-the-spot to work with her. We can go on-and-on about how and why this was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made as parents, but we will try to keep this at a reasonable length. We cannot recommend this organization (and Dana specifically) enough. We were initially hesitant to explore this route, but after the results, we can honestly say the monetary and time investments required are absolutely worth it. Ari used to wake up to nurse multiple times a night and had bad, short, and unpredictable naps. She now has 2 very predictable naps and sleeps uninterrupted through the night. It was not easy to get to where we are now, but we trust the process. And it’s paid off. Our favorite things about working with Dana was the attention to detail, the level of support that was given to us, and the tangents our conversations went in! Every possible situation was covered, and Dana was with us every step of the way. Every question was answered quickly. Even as things did not progress as fast as initially planned, Dana assured us she was sticking with us. Overall, our baby is happier, and we are happier as a result. If you put your confidence and trust in the plan given to you, you will get results. Our only regret is not working with Dana and SleepWise sooner.
“Abby helped us start out with healthy sleep habits right from the start.”
We started with Sleep Wise when our son was 2 weeks old. I was very fearful of any type of “cry it out” method and the sleep plan they came up with for us is very far from it. It also helped my husband and I get along very well when it came to caring for him because we had a plan to go by. He is now 3 months old and falls asleep independently and is such a happy baby, to which I largely attribute to him getting such good rest as a result of working with Sleep Wise!
“It feels to me like a minor miracle. “
I just could not imagine before beginning this process that it was actually possible. I thought we just didn’t have that type of kid who could sleep well or that much. I was at a place where I was accepting it wasn’t for us.
I think we also had this idea that we should know what to do. Why would I know though? I’ve never done this before with a baby. Now in the pandemic more than ever, we’re not surrounded by other people to ask what works for other parents, how they’re handling sleep, or anything. Having someone who has actual expertise in this is what we needed. Having that from Halie gave us comfort.
I felt really anxious it wasn’t going to work. I’ve come so full circle! Halie was kind, considerate, and responsive. I appreciate her time and how she answered our questions along the way. It feels like a dream and like we got our lives back.
“Sleep Training with Grace has been such a game changer for us!”
Before we took a very reactive approach to our 8 month old daughter Jaycey’s wake and sleep cycle and we found ourselves bound to her unpredictable schedule. Jaycey would go to bed way too late at 10:30/11, sometimes midnight. She needed her pacifier to soothe herself to sleep and would also have night wakings where we would bring her in our room or even in our bed…none of us were getting a very restful night’s sleep.
Thank goodness with the help of Grace and Sleep Wise Consulting we were able to implement sleep training methodologies that put us in the driver seat of our baby girl’s schedule. Now that we are taking a much more proactive approach, we have found time for us again in the evenings and getting better sleep at night!
Jaycey is now sleeping in her crib, in her own room and without a pacifier for 11-12 hours a night, along with two 1-1.5 hour naps in the daytime. And though I’m not naturally a very scheduled/organized person this has been SO good for me to find my ‘me time’ again to accomplish work and chores during the day.
It was an investment but worth every penny! We would 100% recommend Grace to any parents who need help getting great sleep in their household.
Thank you Grace – we couldn’t have done it without you!
“When I say that our sleep teacher saved our lives, it’s not much of an exaggeration.”
Our collective quality of life was suffering and my own ability to recover from a serious disease was significantly hindered without sleep. We were all cranky and just “getting by” before we implemented the Sleep Wise Program. Now, my 3.5 y.o. daughter goes to bed easily and peacefully between 7 and 7:30 PM and SLEEPS ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE NIGHT until 7AM! If you are in my old shoes, you know what a big deal it is to say this. She’s doing better at school and in all of her social situations and Mom and Dad are elated and feeling happy and calm again. The value of sleep cannot be underestimated. When you don’t get it, it can shift practically everything in your life. I cannot recommend this program more. It was the absolute best investment we’ve made in our family. Kimberly Brown is a Godsend and we are forever grateful for her steadfast guidance and support. THANK YOU SLEEP WISE!
“We now have a happy, well rested baby…”
About two weeks ago our 4 month old son was waking up at least 3 times a night and taking four 30 minute naps a day- we were all sleep deprived and miserable! After only one night of working with Marissa we noticed a huge difference in our son’s naps & feedings and by night 4 we were all happily sleeping through the night! Marissa is kind, patient and knowledgeable. She made us feel 100% comfortable & supported in every step. We now have a happy, well rested baby who sleeps 11 hours at night and takes full 2 hour naps throughout the day. We cannot thank Marissa enough for what she has done for our family!!
“My little sweetie did amazing from night one!”
This is my 4th baby and 4th time with extreme lack of sleep. The difference with this one is that it has been 10 years since my last baby! I now run a business and have a much more demanding lifestyle. I knew this baby needed to sleep better! My 5 month old was still sleeping in the Snoo in our bedroom. She woke 3-4 times per night and I was usually up with her for an hour each time because I was so tired I would fall asleep sitting up feeding her. I had “free” sleep resources, but I knew that if I were going to do any sleep training this early (5 months) that I needed some accountability. My consult with Monica went well and I think I signed up the same day! We put a plan in place and set a date. I honestly think that one thing (setting the date and holding me to it) was the key aspect of success for me. I was overwhelmed at the thought of things potentially being worse if I started putting her in her crib to sleep. The plan she gave me was not overwhelming and it felt manageable. My little sweetie did amazing from night one! It was nice to have the accountability and the text check-ins. I also liked that nap training was at the same time. I know of other popular plans that do nights first and then tackle naps later, but this was seamless because she was learning to put herself to sleep in every scenario from day 1. We are successfully sleeping and I now have time for my older kids and husband. I wish we had started sooner!
“…by night 2 we saw great results!”
Working and communicating with Kaitlin was great! She always responded back quickly when we were troubleshooting little bumps in the road on our sleep journey! Following the sleep recommendations was truly easy because we had everything outlined for us and we felt prepared after all of our phone meetings with Kaitlin. We started following all of her recommendations right away and by night 2 we saw great results! Would definitely recommend her to anyone needing help with their little ones sleep routine!
“A dream come true.”
We co-slept with our first child until she was two years old! So, we knew we needed the wisdom and support of a sleep expert when we had our second baby. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made! Thank you to our sleep consultant Heather who went above and beyond to make sure we succeeded in sleep training. Our baby is 3 months old and sleeps amazing without a swaddle, without a pacifier, and without being rocked to sleep!
“A million thank you’s to Sarah and Sleep Wise!”
My husband and I will forever be grateful to Sarah for what she helped us accomplish these past two weeks. I was very hesitant and scared about how sleep training could affect my relationship with my son and how well I would be able to stick to the plan. Sarah was absolutely incredible and held my hand through the entire process, supporting and coaching us every day. Within these two weeks, our son was sleeping completely through the night for the first time ever, and taking beautiful and predictable naps. My son is so happy and well-rested, and we are too! I finally feel like I can start to be myself again, and I owe it to this program.
“…much happier and well rested…”
Our daughter was waking up every morning between 4:45-5:30am for the day and would only nap for 30 minutes at a time. She was overtired and not herself during this time so we knew we needed help. I went to school with Catie and knew she had used Sleep Wise for her daughter and seen great results, and now she was a consultant so we reached out for some help! Catie was so helpful and patient as we figured out a schedule for Ava that worked. Ava is now taking two solid naps a day and waking up at 7am every day. She is so much happier and well rested, and so are we!
“…now we are a family that is thriving.”
Before we met with Grace, our sleep could only be described as broken. Now, after graduating from sleep school, we are getting as much sleep as we want because June is sleeping 12 hours at night while also taking two naps that are better than before. This has created a sense of calm in our house that was once riddled with anxiety and depression. Without Grace, I would still be struggling mentally, but now we are a family that is thriving.
