“Marissa helped us find ourselves again and our happy baby is now happy and well-rested.”
We were zombies passing a six-month-old baby between us at 3 am every night! Feedings every three hours still and we “slept” a three hour shift with a “sleeping” baby on our chest in the recliner until it was time to pass the baby for the next shift. Try as we might, naps were unpredictable in location, time and duration. We were super parents and thought we were doing it, until we weren’t!
I had the contact information and a referral to Marissa that I sat on for two months! If you think there must be a better way to do this sleep thing, there is. Make the call/send the email and WRITE THE CHECK! It took us a week to schedule the start because of our schedule. Marissa prepared us well and wrote a great plan. We both referred to it many times! We were too exhausted from our lack of sleep to actually remember from one day to the next, but we had the instructions in writing.
The first night was hard because we were exhausted, but with Marissa’s text support we got through it. The second night, he only woke once! The third night, he slept for TWELVE HOURS no middle of the night feedings! Morning nap was TWO HOURS. Afternoon nap took him a few weeks. It took us a week to stop being zombies and adjust to actually getting sleep at night.
A month after sleep training we went on vacation (flew to another city and stayed in a hotel for four nights). Marissa prepared us for this. No problem! He followed the routine and went right to sleep. He didn’t mind the strange location that didn’t get quite dark, sleeping in a crib that looked like a jail cell, or even Grammie putting him down for a nap.
We recommend Marissa to every new parent, second-time parent, third-time parent and grandparent! Marissa helped us find ourselves again and our happy baby is now happy and well-rested. Even while teething and fussy, he recognizes the routine and goes right to sleep. It’s been a dream!
