“Katie – we talk about you often! Thank you for helping us get sleep, all of us, which has caused for less stressed parents, a less stressed baby and toddler, and such a fun first year with this little man! You truly are passionate about what you do, patient with your clients, and a pure joy to work with!”
“We had a very clingy, co-sleeping 15 month old on our hands who was terrified of the crib. We Googled, sought advice from friends, joined sleep solutions Facebook groups, but nothing was working. We were at our wits’ end. Although we had doubts that anything could help our crib-fearing son, I am happy to report that we were very wrong. Kelley was so supportive, understanding, and patient throughout the whole process that it felt like she became a part of our family. We are kicking ourselves that we didn’t do this sooner! If you are in desperate need of sleep, know that working with Sleep Wise Consulting will be worth every single penny you spend. Our now 17 month old actually takes pride in knowing his bedtime routine and is clamoring to get in his crib by the end. He seems well rested and happy in the mornings (and we definitely are too). From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you, Kelley.”
“We started working with Kelley when my little one was 9 weeks old. I was an anxious nervous wreck about going back to work and not having her on a good schedule and sleeping through the night. When we started naps were a disaster and she was waking once a night! We worked VERY hard together figuring out what exactly Anna Scott needed in order to have restful and predictable sleep. By the last week of our time together Anna Scott was sleeping through the night (6-6) and her naps had DRASTICALLY improved. We still have some off days, but I am 100% more confident in my ability to help Anna Scott get the rest she needs because of the guidance and encouragement I received on a daily basis from Kelley. I loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone!”
“Wow, I can’t say enough wonderful things about Katie and Sleep Wise Consulting. I wish I would have called her months ago! I have read all the books and listened to advice from so many other moms, and it just didn’t quite seem to add up. My child was still just not quite making it through the night. I did the free 15-minute call with Katie and she was wonderful! From the very start, she was prompt and attentive, not missing a mark. She was truly on the ball! Katie walked through our typical days with us and asked some pointed questions to try and get to the bottom of our issues. With just a few tweaks to what we were already doing, Katie’s help got my son sleeping 11 1/2 hours after only 4 nights! He is now sleeping 11-12 hours consistently. After 6 months of sleep deprivation, sleep never felt so good!!!”
“We worked with Jeannine after realizing that our 5 month old little boy needed some help with sleeping through the night and taking more consistent naps. For more than 2 months our little guy was waking anywhere from 1-5 times a night and was taking 3-4 30-45 minute naps during the day. Jeannine took the time to really get to know our family and our son and quickly came up with a plan that we felt comfortable with and that was easy to implement between my husband and I and our nanny. Within 3 days we saw drastic improvements. He would go to bed at 7 and wake up between 5-7 and then started taking 45 minute – 2 hour naps. After our 2 weeks with Jeannine we were able to get our son to sleep 11-12 hours a night with 2 solid 1.5 hour – 2 hour naps. He was a much happier little boy and we loved having a schedule that made sense and allowed us to help our son before he knew he needed it. Jeannine was extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. She showed that she cared and really helped our family to find balance. I highly recommend working with her! You won’t regret it!”
“Our 4 month old (at the time) girl didn’t have glaring sleep problems. We were following some books with some success, but were dealing with terrible naps and early morning wakings every night. I have seen good reports about Sleep Wise Consulting, and there was a mom sharing about her little girl having similar sleep issues to us and having worked with Kelley. We decided to start with the free consultation and really enjoyed talking to Kelley. Even though the investment seemed a little high at the time, we both work full time and were getting ready to transition our baby to daycare so we wanted to fix her naps and ensure good restful nights for her and us. We signed up for the infant package, and it ended up being money so well spent! Kelley was wonderful to work with. Her daily custom plan worked great for us, along with tweaks along the way. She is so knowledgeable and was able to answer our numerous questions. Besides getting our girl to take great naps and sleep well at night, she really helped us understand sleep and the tools we have going forward to ensure that our girl continues to sleep well. We have a happy 5.5 month old who sleeps great at home and daycare, and two well-rested confident parents who are equipped by Kelley to keep and adjust the routine as necessary. We are very grateful to Kelley for her wisdom and patience. We have been recommending your agency and Kelley to everyone else with infants and young kids.”
“Working with Kelley has been absolutely amazing for curing our 6 months old’s short nap problems. Though he had been sleeping 12 hours straight at night, we could not get his naps to budge past 30 minutes. Nap time started to become an hour fight every time. Kelley helped us trouble shoot exactly what was causing both issues and how to solve them! We now have a well-rested baby and very happy mama thanks to all the wonderful help and advice! If you are on the fence or just trying to “ride it out,” I promise, it is SO worth it to invest in the gift of sleep through working with one of these incredible ladies!”
“Thank you so so much! I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate not only every thing you did for us but how much you taught me about Sammy’s sleep needs. The fact that you stayed with us this extra week was amazing and I feel so sad that our time is up. I have everything saved that you gave me so I am sure I will be contacting you again in the future should any issues arise. You saved me and sammy from sleep deprivation and paci addiction! You are amazing at what you do and I am so so thankful I found you and made the call. Thank you so much Katie. Truly, it’s been wonderful working with you.”
“Wow. I can’t believe it took me so long to finally get help with my daughters sleep habits, which undoubtedly I created. Alexia has never been a good sleeper. Ever since we brought her home it had been a battle to get her to sleep and trying to make her STAY asleep was a whole different war that we weren’t ever going to win. I begged other moms to tell me what to do. I begged my own mother to tell me how she survived 8 children. How do I get her to sleep all night?? Or at least sleep longer than ONE HOUR increments?
No one had any suggestions for me other than “you’ll have to let her scream”. It will only take about 3-4 days of that and then she’ll be done. That was never an option for me. How could I just one night abandon my child who for the past 11 months has cried and I’ve responded. To me that just seemed cruel and very emotionally damaging. But again. 11 months is a long time for me to not get any sleep.
So I contacted Jeannine at Sleep Wise Consulting and she changed my life! I dreaded that first night of implementing the new systems and schedules that she came up with just knowing my daughter would fight and I’d have to hear her scream and we would battle for hours. Night one came and after an hour and a half discussion with Jeannine about how to get her in her crib for bed initially and how to deal with night wakings, we began. It was amazing!! Yes, my daughter cried and put up a fight but by following exactly the plan she had put in place by night 3 there were minimal tears and no more night wakings. Now after completing the 2 weeks with unlimited support and access to Jeannine we are officially graduated to a big girl sleeper! She sleeps in her crib without me or her father going in her room at all until morning.
Jeannine, by teaching us, how to teach Alexia, how to self soothe has given us a whole new life. We now all get the amounts of sleep we need to be a good mommy, a good daddy, and a healthy happy baby. I can’t thank her enough for the help, encouragement, and support she showed up for those 2 stressful weeks. It was most definitely appreciated! Now we are even talking about adding to our family now that Alexia is sleeping like a big girl. I can’t fully express our appreciation and gratitude to Jeannine for the transformation in our family. Thanks again for everything!”
“We started working with Jeannine Conte when our LO was about 13 weeks old. Night time sleep was okay (usually sleeping about 8pm-6am with two wake ups/feeds), but naps were a nightmare. To get LO to fall asleep, we had to rock and shush and bounce and walk – and she usually cried the whole time. Then, to keep her asleep, we had to hold her for her entire naps. We tried putting her in the rock n play for naps, but she never slept more than 45 minutes in the rock n play (despite sleeping pretty well in there overnight).
I knew we had to make a change, because LO was going to start daycare and I just wanted to do everything in my power to make sure she would be able to get decent naps at daycare. So I got in touch with Jeannine. Our first night working with her, LO slept for 7 hours straight! The next night it was 9 hours, then 10 hours. I had no idea how much better her night time sleep could be! She’s now sleeping about 12 hours every night with one motn feed (she’s quite small and still needs this).
Naps took a little more work, but she now naps in her crib and falls asleep on her own. She’s consistently getting about 3.5-4 hours of daytime sleep.
I’m so thankful to Jeannine for the help and guidance she provided us. She was always available to answer our questions and tell us how to handle any situation we encountered. I’m so much more confident now that my baby girl will be able to take good naps at daycare!
This was definitely one of the best investments we’ve ever made as a family. Hubby and I are getting more sleep, more quality time together, and more time to complete household tasks. And baby girl is SO MUCH HAPPIER now that she’s getting the rest she needs!”
“The way I generally describe this journey of sleep is the fact that I felt like I had all the ingredients but lacked the recipe. For example, I knew I could let baby cry and didn’t have to react immediately all the time. I knew the dummy was causing wake ups. I knew I shouldn’t let baby fall asleep while drinking (but thought sucking with eyes closed meant baby was awake… wrong!) And I knew I had to stick to certain wake times BUT I just didn’t know how to put it all together. Enter Kelley with the PERFECT recipe! We saw immediate improvement within 24 hours. She respected my ideals and was a constant positive encouragement despite my emotional ups and downs. After just four days of sleep training my little one went from shonky naps, being heavily dummy dependent and waking up to 6 times a night to solid 2 hour naps, no dummy and 12 hours through the night with only one quick feed which he dropped independently after 2.5 weeks. We hit a rough patch after about a week but Kelley remained super confident which in return enabled me to be at peace. Such a blessing. She was also generous with extra information on travel tips, a plan forward and genuine care. This has been the best investment in my little man’s life and one I will be able to use for future babies to come… the gift of sleep that will keep on giving.”
“I wanted to take a moment to thank you Dana for all of your work with us. It was seriously some of the best money I’ve ever spent… it is such an immeasurable service! You were wonderful through these 2 weeks… despite illness, urgent care trips, trips to the in-laws, and potty-training a toddler. I know we may not have been the “ideal” situation, but you worked with us nonetheless and we would recommend you in a heartbeat. I will definitely miss your guidance!!!”
