“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!
“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!
“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.
“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!
“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.
“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!
“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!
“I’m super appreciative of your patience while we learned how to teach Cami to sleep on her own!”
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!
“We can’t believe how fast the year has flown by! She is still sleeping so well, as is mom and dad.”
We can’t believe how fast the year has flown by! She is still sleeping so well, as is mom and dad. Thanks Dana for all your amazing help this last year. Can’t wait to continue working with you over the toddler years!
“The thought of bed time doesn’t scare us anymore”
Once the twins are down they SLEEP through the night! Thanks to Dana we feel like we can conquer this parenting thing now!”
“We honestly don’t know where we’d be without Kelley and the Sleep Wise program. We couldn’t recommend it more! It’s worth every penny!!”
Working with Kelley was life changing. Before we started the Sleepwise program, like many sleep-deprived parents, we were trying to figure out how to get our 5 month old son the sleep he needed. We couldn’t figure out how to get him to sleep on his own and instead were dependent on rocking him to sleep and then hoping he’d sleep a few hours in his crib before realizing we put him in there. Kelley was able to provide us with a comprehensive log, daily emails and instructions that were catered to his needs, and supportive phone calls. Even when we went past the 2 week mark, Kelley was there to help us get to the finish line. We just weened our son from 3 naps to 2 and he is getting 11-12 hours of sleep every night and great naps during the day. Now that we are back at work, we are all getting the sleep we need and Elijah is happier to get more rest! Kelley has been so caring an understanding and even helped provide info on white noise machines and other tools to ensure his room was set up for success. We honestly don’t know where we’d be without Kelley and the Sleep Wise program. We couldn’t recommend it more! It’s worth every penny!!
“It’s been 4 weeks since we started the program and she sleeps all night without waking in her own bed.”
Matt and I cannot thank you enough. After two years of co-sleeping and only getting about 2 hours of sleep a night, we are a different family. Emery would wake up wanting to drink, eat, ride in the car, and sometimes just sit in the floor crying. We were exhausted and didn’t know what else to do. Working with Kelli saved our marriage. We were fighting and arguing all the time, and both would sit in the floor with her crying because we didn’t know what was wrong with her. After the first week, Emery was laying down in her bed by herself, falling asleep without crying, and sleeping all night long without waking. It’s been 4 weeks since we started the program and she sleeps all night without waking in her own bed. She is so proud of herself, and tells everyone she sees.
“Not only are both my kids sleeping through the night but our preschooler is happier and more cooperative because he is getting a full nights rest!”
We were having such difficult time with our kid’s sleep; Our preschooler’s lengthy bedtime routine, night wakings and very early mornings. Add a 5-month old baby who was waking multiples time a night and we were not sleeping at all!
Not only are both my kids sleeping through the night but our preschooler is happier and more cooperative because he is getting a full nights rest! Thank you for all of your guidance and help, Dana!
“Our naps have regulated and we have such a happy baby!”
We went from multiple wakings in the night and playing the paci game, to dropping the paci completely and sleeping through the night with maybe one wake up! We lay her down wide awake and she goes right to sleep! Our naps have regulated and we have such a happy baby!
So thankful for Sarah! We are grateful for Her guidance and support!
“Thanks so much Sarah, we so appreciated working with you as well. You are a wealth of knowledge and your support gave us the confidence we needed to help Rylan learn to sleep on her own.”
Before working with Sarah we were spending up to an hour rocking our daughter to sleep every time and then hoping she wouldn’t wake up as soon as we set her down. Plus her bedtime was unpredictable and very late. Heading back to work from maternity leave, I knew we needed a change that would foster better independent sleep skills so that we could all be happier and more well rested. However, I didn’t know quite how to get there. Sarah helped us implement a routine that included an earlier bedtime and allowed our daughter to fall asleep on her own. Within the first day we saw improvement and by the end of the week she was sleeping great and also much happier and more well rested during awake times. We now have the knowledge and skills to continue supporting healthy sleep habits as our daughter grows, and that has been a game changer for her and for us.
“Now, Adam can actually fall asleep all on his own in his crib and stay asleep for naps and at bed time!”
Working with Sarah as our sleep consultant was amazing and dramatically improved the sleep habits of our now 4 month old baby, Adam! We had fallen into a routine that was not sustainable – Adam was napping mainly in a carrier, and we were nursing to sleep and cosleeping at night. I was his sleep prop, and he had never really fallen asleep on his own. Adam also started waking up every 1-2 hours after 12am, and though I love cuddles, I knew it was time for Adam to not NEED me or any other prop to fall asleep.
Now, Adam can actually fall asleep all on his own in his crib and stay asleep for naps and at bed time!! It is SUCH difference from where we were before, and it only took a few days of working with Sarah and implementing the sleep plan she developed to see huge improvements. She was so encouraging and proactive throughout the whole process, providing us with daily suggestions on how to improve Adam’s schedule and sleep plan. I got the sense that she really cared about our family and wanted to equip us with the knowledge and confidence to continue to nurture Adam’s independent sleep skills even after our time with her was up. Our lives are soooooo much improved, and we are forever grateful!!
Since working with Dana, we have gained confidence, ditched the daily temper tantrums, and have our happy family back!”
“Now “the boss”, sleeps for 12 hours at night and a 1.5 hour nap, ALL IN HIS CRIB!”
Erica transformed our family from crisis mode to a happy well rested family. We were co-sleeping, praying to just get 7 hours of sleep and holding our 16 month old for naps. Now “the boss”, sleeps for 12 hours at night and a 1.5 hour nap, ALL IN HIS CRIB!!!!!!! Before, if I left the bed, “the king” would wake up and that would be the start of our morning. NOW, I can take a shower, have breakfast and unload the dishwasher, all before my little angel wakes up. Run don’t walk, to sign up for Erica’s services.
“Even the days when she is “off” for whatever reason, I feel confident in my abilities to modify her plan and get her back on track.”
Katie, I just wanted to email you one more time and say thank you again for all of your help with Cece. You’ve honestly changed our lives! With Cece sleeping better, the whole family is happier. It is wonderful having a (somewhat) predictable, well rested baby. I’ve been recommending you to everyone I know; I hope some of them follow through on it. Best money I’ve ever spent. Cece has been doing great. Even the days when she is “off” for whatever reason, I feel confident in my abilities to modify her plan and get her back on track. You’ve been a great teacher for momma and baby.
“working with Kelley gave us the tools to help our son go from multiple wakings a night to none.”
Working with Kelley from SleepWise was a total game changer for us. I used to dread when the sun went down- knowing I would be awake with my 6 month old all night, followed by work the next morning. Though it wasn’t easy initially, working with Kelley gave us the tools to help our son go from multiple wakings a night to none. It’s also a dream to have our room back to ourselves. My husband and I told our friends to skip out on buying half the baby gear and use that money for sleep help! So worth it!
“Not only do we not have any more sleep props, but we have TWO babies sleeping 12 hours at night and taking consistent daily naps.”
Before starting Sleep Wise our lives were unpredictable. With twins things are crazy enough and we needed some consistency and that’s what we got with Susan. Emma and Ella were decent sleepers before we started but there are TWO of them so we were getting up multiple times a night to reinsert their pacis and we had inconstant naps that seemed to be all over the place. These issues along with knowing we were ready for a schedule change pushed me to call Susan. I am so glad we did. Not only do we not have any more sleep props, but we have TWO babies sleeping 12 hours at night and taking consistent daily naps. I feel like a new person getting the sleep I need and knowing what to expect during the day. All I can say is that Sleep Wise is worth every single penny. It is the gift of sleep for the whole family!
“I feel well equipped with enough information to deal with any bumps that come our way.”
We started training Eli when he was 14.5 weeks. Before starting, Eli wasn’t a terrible sleeper, but he was still being swaddled, sleeping in a dock-a-tot, and using a pacifier for naps (not bedtime). He went to bed at 8pm, woke up for middle of the night feeds twice a night, along with a few other middle of the night wakings, and didn’t necessarily have a specific wake time. He used to go down with a fight every time and would fuss for a while before actually falling asleep.
After using Susan from Sleep Wise, Eli now puts himself to sleep for all naps and for bedtime and the best part is, he doesn’t use any sleep props. He sleeps through the night and takes 3 solid naps throughout his days. He knows what to expect, and when to expect it. When he does go down for naps/bed, he doesn’t fuss anymore, and instead he will smile at us from his crib. Granted it isn’t this perfect all the time, but 85% of the time he does great. as for the other 15%, I feel well equipped with enough information to deal with any bumps that come our way. Thanks to Susan, I also have a great understanding of what to do moving forward as Eli grows and how to transition him from 3 naps to 2 and then to 1 nap. I feel confident that sleep is one issue that my family will not have to deal with at home!
“Under the program, she began sleeping thru the night on her 2nd night and her naps were regularly in the 1.5-3 hr range.”
Hiring Katie is quite possibly the best thing we have done for our 15 month old girl (and us)!! Hailey never slept great and we kept making excuse after excuse for her (constantly sick, mouthful of teeth, lack of eating solids, etc.). The more time that passed the worse she got and the more our patience wore out. We knew we needed an expert and I feel like we struck gold with Katie. From the first time we spoke, I felt this tremendous sense of relief and peace. Not only is she highly experienced but she’s also a fantastic person and kind, sympathetic, and encouraging. Just prior to starting our program Hailey was sleeping as horrible as a newborn if not worse – she woke every 2-3 hours at night and regularly napped under an hour. Under the program, she began sleeping thru the night on her 2nd night and her naps were regularly in the 1.5-3 hr range. We cannot even begin to express our tremendous gratitude to Katie for all of her help and wisdom and would very highly recommend her to any parent in need of a good night’s sleep!!
“She is happier during the day, constantly smiling and squeaking in excitement when she wakes up.”
Thank you Susan for the work and dedication that you’ve provided for our family. Bay was a sweet baby, but she wasn’t so nice during naps and bedtime. Felipe and I used to call her “The Beast” because we terrified of her when bedtime comes around. We used to rock, sing, and pray that she would sleep for at least a few hours before waking and crying again. Since working with you, we’ve learned that Bay can sleep independently in her own crib. She is happier during the day, constantly smiling and squeaking in excitement when she wakes up. Felipe and I are enjoying every minute when she is awake because she’s now well-rested. We are very pleased with the progress we’ve made. Bay says thanks!
“My little one is sleeping 10-12 hrs at night, sleeps about 1.5-2hrs for her naps, AND sleeps independently!!!! We have met EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our goals!!”
Before sleep training, my little one was waking up minimum 2-3 times a night, her longest stretch of sleep was maybe 4-5 hrs, sleeping only 30-40 minutes for naps, and was dependent on SO many sleep props such as the swaddle, pacifier, bottle, holding, rocking, walking, etc.
After hiring Sarah Walden from Sleepwise Consulting, my little one is sleeping 10-12 hrs at night, sleeps about 1.5-2hrs for her naps, AND sleeps independently!!!! We have met EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our goals!!
Working with Sarah has been AMAZING! She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, supportive, patient, and helps you achieve your goals!!
If you are on the fence about hiring a sleep consultant, I highly recommend Sarah and SleepWise Consulting! So worth it!
“Susan helped us teach out son to build his own independent sleep skills to the point that he WANTS to sleep when he needs it rather than fighting sleep.”
Working with Susan Lowman at Sleepwise Consulting was the best decision I ever made for my son and my whole family. We followed the Baby Wise method with our older son and he took to it well but our younger son did not. We tried sleep training him for two weeks on our own and did not get the results we wanted. It was just terrible for everyone. What we knew even before working with Sleep Wise is that sleep training is not just about putting a baby in a crib and letting him or her cry. Sleep training requires an overhaul of the baby’s entire day and night sleep routines and habits. Our problem was that we had tried everything and worked hard for good day and independent night sleep but we didn’t know about all of the “hidden” sleep props we had and the habits that we had that were making it harder for our son to sleep. Working with Susan was such a pleasure. Finally we had an expert telling us exactly what we needed to do so we didn’t have to play anymore guessing games. We went from following advise from moms on facebook (who frankly don’t know what they are doing anymore than I did!) to working with a trained expert who was able to give us a plan to follow. Our son went from waking numerous times per night to sleeping through the night with a simple bedtime routine and taking long and predictable naps. He even started daycare this week and took two long naps despite the noise and light in the room. Susan helped us teach out son to build his own independent sleep skills to the point that he WANTS to sleep when he needs it rather than fighting sleep. We couldn’t be happier with the result. Thank you so much to Katie Pitts, to Susan, and the entire Sleepwise team for helping all of us get the sleep we need!
“This program works and you will not regret the investment in your child’s (and your own) sleep!”
Andrew is our second baby and has been the most easygoing baby you could imagine since he was born. He just has always had one glaring problem: he follows in his big sister’s footsteps as a horrible sleeper! I managed his poor sleep fairly well for the first five months. He was nursed or bounced to sleep, often held for naps and even long stretches at night. This all became unmanageable when he would not sleep at all unless he was nursing. Even holding him, rocking him, and bouncing him became ineffective, which meant dad could no longer help. It would take 2-4 hours to get him to fall asleep and stay asleep at night. He would wake up every 30-60 minutes; best case scenario I would get one two-hour stretch. I knew it wasn’t possible to continue that way and I did not want to make the same mistakes I made with my first and continue down this path just hoping things would improve. I knew from experience it does not “get better with time.” Susan was very patient with me. We first spoke when my son was 3 months and I was trying out another sleep program. It didn’t work so at 5 months I called her back and said “I’m ready!!”
Susan listened to everything that was going on with us and Andrew. She created a customized plan that addressed his specific sleep associations rather than forcing a one size fits all into our situation. She was more responsive than I had imagined she would have been. We had multiple calls, dozens of emails back and forth. Andrew was sleeping through the night by night 2, and putting himself to sleep with a short cry at night 3 and falling asleep peacefully by night 4. This is not a cry-it-out program. This is a program that structures your entire day to set your child up for the best sleep opportunity when it is rest time. Andrew sleeps 11-12 hours every night. He falls asleep peacefully for naps and night. His daytime sleep is taking longer to come together, but we will continue to work on it. We are at a place where we are happy as a family with our progress. I was impressed that Susan was willing to stick it out with us until we were totally satisfied even if that meant longer than 2 weeks.
I cannot thank Susan enough for helping us get Andrew’s sleep under control. If you have a baby who is not sleeping, know it does not always get better with time. My 3.5 year old is a prime example of that! This program works and you will not regret the investment in your child’s (and your own) sleep!
“knowing our son is happily dreaming away and getting the proper rest for him to be a big boy!”
Working with Katie has changed our lives, seriously! Before starting the program our 4.5 month old son woke an average of six time a night, often more! He used sleep props to fall asleep and I always worried he was never well rested. He now sleeps 12 hours a night with one feeding (sometimes no wakes at all) and naps well at daycare. His parents now sleep well too, knowing our son is happily dreaming away and getting the proper rest for him to be a big boy! Katie offered us a detailed plan and was a supportive coach throughout the process — I HIGHLY recommend her!
“The plan she put together was completely personalized to my baby, our family, and our goals.”
As a second time mom, there were things I had figured out with my first child that made me more confident in facing with my second child. Of course, you’ve heard very child is different. My hope was that would mean my second baby would be a perfect sleeper. I struggled with my first born for eighteen months. I was so thankful and optimistic when Graham was a good sleeper for the first three months of his life. I got lucky, I thought! Because it was certainly not out of any knowledge or effort on my end. He was just a good sleeper on his own.
Then at four months, he started having night wakings, and I responded the only way I knew how which was to nurse him back to sleep. My pediatrician cautioned that this might set up a bad pattern, but I thought he’s grown so much maybe he really is hungry at night and I didn’t mind the interruption. At six months, he upped his nightly feedings and refused to sleep in a travel crib when we would take trips for the holidays. He ended up in our bed.
By seven months, he was up three times on a good night and six times on a bad night. There were a lot of bad nights.
The naps were also going from good to bad to worse. He got to the point where here would only sleep on my lap after nursing to sleep. I needed help. Professional help.
I knew from my experience with my first son that my mommy heart could not handle extinction sleep methods. I wanted a more gentle, yet effective approach. I also knew I needed someone to hold me accountable so just following a book was not going to work.
After much research, I contacted Jeannine with Sleepwise Consultants. She was highly recommended by other moms in the Frisco Moms Squad Facebook group. I will be forever grateful for her wisdom and care during this process. Through her confident guidance and expertise, I now have a baby who can put himself to sleep, sleeps through the night, and takes good naps. It’s amazing.
The plan she put together was completely personalized to my baby, our family, and our goals. She was quick to answer questions and give reassurance. I loved how she closely monitored our shared sleep log, and would reach out with instructions in how to make needed adjustments when she saw red flags. I now feel confident that I have the tools to tackle any hiccups or make necessay adjustments as my baby grows. It’s also comforting to know I have someone I trust that I can reach out to if we get stuck again.
At the end of the two weeks, Graham earned a certificate of achievement. It will certainly always be a point of pride for me not only that we conquered this together, but how we did it. And we couldn’t have done it without Jeannine.
“The whole family is happier with his new sleep skills. We feel empowered as parents!!”
Our child was a decent sleeper until the dreaded 4-month sleep regression. As working parents, waking up every 1-2 hours (needing a feed to fall back asleep) was wearing on us. Everyone told us it would “get better” but it didn’t ever seem to improve. We were scared of our child and scared of the night. We were at each other’s throats. After 6 weeks of torturing ourselves and our baby, we decided to call Kelley.
What did we not want to do? Walk out of the room without looking back and leaving him to cry (which is what our pediatrician told us to do). We also wanted to preserve the night feed if he needed it. Kelley helped us change our nighttime routine and the first night he went to sleep WITHOUT A PEEP! After only two nights he was down to one nighttime feeding, which Kelley helped us understand that he still needed (but also offered me suggestions to help cut it out when it is appropriate). He also has a great naptime routine that we can predict and schedule our day around. Kelley was so responsive to emails and phone calls. She was enthusiastic and she gave us confidence in sleep training.
The whole family is happier with his new sleep skills. We feel empowered as parents!!
“This program was life changing for us. Truly and utterly life changing.”
We struggled month after month with getting our babies to sleep more than 3 hours at a time. They all 3 would wake up 3-4 times each night, leaving us in the most exhausted state we could have ever imagined. They had to be rocked, held, fed, every time they woke up to go back to sleep and it was pure exhaustion. During the day, we rocked them to sleep and they would nap around 30-45 mins a couple times a day. They were awful at night. The witching hour was like 3-4 hours every night of feeding and rocking and being so tired we would crash and not eat most nights. Then I called Sleepwise and was paired with Jeannine and our lives were changed instantly! She got us on a schedule that makes life so easy its insane. My family, including my parents and sisters, are amazed at what a huge turn around there’s been for our night times. They are going down awake, taking two 1.5hr naps each day and sleeping 11 hours a night. We get SLEEP! And they are so much happier now that they get sleep too. This program was life changing for us. Truly and utterly life changing. Jeannine was our saving grace!
“moms, it is OK TO ASK FOR HELP! I am not embarrassed anymore to admit I needed help.”
Here was my life at night. My son, who was 11 months at the time, was waking up (not kidding) every single hour! I would go into his room, rock him back to sleep, then try to gracefully put him back in his bed praying he wouldn’t wake up because he would scream and the process would start all over again. My child since birth, would only sleep a maximum of 2 hours EVER! We even did bed sharing for 3 months because I was becoming a monster being sleep deprived. At this point, I was losing my mind and honestly starting to resent my son.
I’m sharing this because, moms, it is OK TO ASK FOR HELP! I am not embarrassed anymore to admit I needed help. Well, a mom on a nursing group I’m in reach out to me on messenger about a sleep consultant she used. I have read a lot about them previously, but never felt willing enough to spend money on one. NOW going through it, I would have paid double! My son in 3 Days time, went from waking every hour to sleeping 8pm to 7:30am every night !!!! I am not joking!!!!
I wish I would have know about Jeannine Conte 6 months ago! I wish all you struggling moms the best of luck and restful nights.
“Having Dana’s guidance was invaluable!”
We are not constantly dreading what is going to happen at night now with our baby’s sleep and we get to spend more time together. It’s a win-win!”
“He knows exactly what to expect and has been such a happier child now that he is rested and knows the routine.”
Our son was never a great sleeper. Around 18months I found myself rocking him fully to sleep, feeding him an 8-10oz bottle until he was out, placing him very slowly into he crib and tip toeing out of the room. Only to have him wake up about 20 minutes later. It had snowballed and he started requiring more and more assistance to fall asleep. I was losing my mind and becoming a person that no one really wanted to be around. I was very apprehensive when first working with Jennifer, he was obsessed with his bottle and he was an older baby and I just thought there is no way this will change. Literally the first night with no bottle and no rocking he went to sleep within 40 minutes, and a nap with in 20 minutes and it only got better and better with sleep each day. He knows exactly what to expect and has been such a happier child now that he is rested and knows the routine. Jennifer walked me through everything and had a very concise plan that made so much sense. It was so worth the money and the time. I only wish I had done it sooner.
“My wife and I have been able to spend quality time together again and it’s all because of Kelli and the Sleepwise plan!”
Before contacting Kelli, my wife and I were struggling to get Emorie to sleep and had fallen into co-sleeping, using a Doc-a-tot, a sleep suit, feeding to get her to sleep, etc. Event then, we never got consistent sleep as Emmie would wake up 3-5 times per night and we were just as exhausted and irritable as our baby.
We are not enjoying multiple quality naps during the day and 12 hour night sleeps along with a happy baby that is well rested! My wife and I have been able to spend quality time together again and it’s all because of Kelli and the Sleepwise plan! It is the best money we have ever spent! Thank you so much Kelli!
“Life is so much better now that we are all well rested! Thank you!”
Our life consisted of early wake ups, no naps and a bed time process that took over an hour. We had a very tired and cranky baby. In just two weeks, she successfully started napping for 1+ hours multiple times a day and bedtime is a breeze. Working with Jeannine was great, she helped us in so many ways and we now have given Oaklee healthy sleep habits for life! Life is so much better now that we are all well rested! Thank you!
“there was an immediate (dare I say, “miraculous”) improvement!”
We are so thankful for Jeannine’s help with getting little Amber to sleep! Before reaching out to Sleep Wise Consulting, Amber had slept well until she turned about four months old. Fast forward to ten months old, and she was still waking every two hours and demanding to be nursed at each of those wakings. Naps were only about 30 minutes long, twice or three times a day. She was still in good spirits, but we were all exhausted. My oldest daughter (18 yo) had to wear earplugs to bed.
After the initial phone conversation, Jeannine gave us some tips to start with while she put together a full plan that would jive with our existing schedules and future goals. When I put it all into place, there was an immediate (dare I say, “miraculous”) improvement! Amber went down for sleep easily and although she woke a few times the first few nights, she did not demand my assistance. I never had to leave my bed! After only a few nights, she slept the entire night with zero wakings! Her naps have consistently been 1.5 – 2 hours at home, and I can actually plan to get work done in those hours!
It has been a complete, sanity-saving experience. I would strongly encourage other families to reach out when they feel they are in need of assistance.
“This is the best decision we could have made not only for Kutter but for my husband and I to have some alone time for the first time since Kutter was born!”
Our 17 month old little boy had always slept with us at night and I have held him for every nap since he was born! After just a few nights of working with Kelli, our sweet boy started sleeping 12 hours at night! This is the best decision we could have made not only for Kutter but for my husband and I to have some alone time for the first time since Kutter was born!
“Our little guy did amazing and slept through the night on the second night! We couldn’t believe it! It’s been 3 weeks and he’s a whole different child!”
I finally decided to make the call to a sleep consultant when my 6 month old was waking 7-8x a night and taking 1 hour naps during the day. Needless to say he was miserable all the time and it started effecting his eating schedule as well. When asked, how much does he eat? Or how long does he sleep? I would just shrug my shoulders!!! Our days could only be described as chaos, and that was also taking a toll on our young marriage!!! We were all so tired and our days revolved around keeping a little Human happy, which seemed impossible.
Sarah was very confident on the phone that we could get this all under control. After she relayed the plan to me I was very excited to get to it and get to sleeping! Our little guy did amazing and slept through the night on the second night! We couldn’t believe it! It’s been 3 weeks and he’s a whole different child! He’s eating so much better and taking great naps during the day, and now sleeps 11-12 hours straight through the night! Personally I feel like a whole new person, my life feels back on track and under control again!
We can’t thank Sarah enough for literally changing our lives! We are all so much happier, and well rested!!!
“I am overjoyed to say that my little man sleeps 11-12 hours at night with little or no crying out.”
Kelli is absolutely phenomenal! I truly wondered whether this program could remotely help Jackson but knew something had to give. I was desperate for sleep because my 13 month old had never slept more than 2 1/2 – 3 hours at once and lately was up hourly. After my initial consultation with Kelli, I decided I had to make a drastic choice. It has proven to be one of the best choices ever. I am overjoyed to say that my little man sleeps 11-12 hours at night with little or no crying out. Kelli has been the most patient and helpful coach during this trying time. The money spent was more than worth it. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!!!
“We feel like we have our lives back and a well-rested and happy baby! “
Working with Kelley was one our best things we could do for our family! We figured by baby #3, we would have zero issues getting our daughter to nap well and sleep through the night. Nope. At 5 months, Hazel was taking 4 unpredictable naps a day and my husband was even sleeping in the nursery nightly to help get our baby to sleep without waking up 3-5 times a night. After working with Kelley, we’ve adjusted her schedule and gave Hazel new skills to take 3 good naps and 11.5 hours of sleep a night. Hazel has made significant developmental and growth gains in just the two weeks we worked with Kelley and feel confident in her sleep going forward. We feel like we have our lives back and a well-rested and happy baby!
“We also feel that we have the tools and confidence to make adjustments in her sleep as she grows older and things change.”
“if you have done babywise from day 1, but know your baby can do better… invest in this.”
Alright mamas on the fence about using a sleep consultant – I’m here to share my testimonial! We used Sleep Wise Consulting and worked with Kelley Ryan. I have to tell you upfront, we didn’t have “major” sleep issues. But my 9.5 month old (10 months next week) had almost 6 weeks of early wake ups and naps were unpredictable – meaning sometimes 45 min and sometimes longer.
In two weeks, with dropping the pacifier and minor changes, nothing unrealistic or drastic at all, we were able to make it to our DWT of 6 am 5 times with wake ups 10 minutes before or less even more than that!!! And – I have been waking him from naps!
Ok – all this to say, if you have done babywise from day 1, but know your baby can do better… invest in this. I knew our son could do better but didn’t know how to “fix” his issues. Anyway, long winded thank you and seriously think about this.
“Being an independent sleeper has given Daphne great independence and security in so many other areas as well, and we cannot be more proud of her growth and development.”
“As a first-time Mom, I poured over sleep research and did the best I could to start teaching my daughter Daphne how to sleep independently from 4 months onward. We had a pretty good groove, but I knew there were some things that needed improvement. I wanted to help prevent early morning wake ups for starters, and I wanted to be confident that Daphne was getting the RIGHT balance of daytime and nighttime sleep for her growth. I wanted to know that I was doing everything in my power to give her the best sleep environment, the optimal schedule and the appropriate tools for her to continue to develop and thrive. Though I had done my homework, I lacked personal confidence that what I was doing was, in fact, right and healthy for my daughter. We hired Jennifer Loney as a sleep consultant when we knew that Daphne was ready to transition to 2 naps. The signs were obvious, but I felt clueless as to how to make the transition and what the ideal schedule would be for her (there seemed to be so many to choose from). Jennifer provided the structure and the guidance I was craving. She was quickly to respond to my numerous emails and concerns (and there were many!). She even went above and beyond to provide advice to other questions regarding solid foods, sippy cups, travel and future schedules. I felt safe and confident knowing that even with the inevitable hiccups that come with a nap transition, I had someone to lean on for advice, guidance and encouragement during the process. I am not sure if I would have been able to hold my ground with the new schedule had not Jennifer been there. She helped me learn to trust myself, my daughter’s cues and the entire process. It’s hard for a perfectionist like me to work through the ups and downs of a nap transition and not see hiccups as failure. Jennifer helped me understand that a transition is exactly that – a transition. She also encouraged me in my commitment and dedication to Daphne’s sleep habits. I am so thankful that we had her guidance – Daphne transitioned to her new 2 nap schedule beautifully, and though I know she will keep growing and transition on to 1 nap eventually, I feel confident knowing that I have tools to help her move forward. Daphne is such a happy, healthy and well-rested baby. Because all her sleep needs are met, it’s never a guessing game if she’s fussy as to what might be wrong – we are able to quickly narrow it down to sickness, teething or a leap. Even her daycare teacher mentioned the other day that she wished all the infants in her class were on schedules like Daphne. Being an independent sleeper has given Daphne great independence and security in so many other areas as well, and we cannot be more proud of her growth and development. Thank you, Jennifer Loney and Sleepwise
“Not only does she put herself to sleep for naps and bedtime, she sleeps 12 hours through the night.”
After having successfully completed a plan for my 4 year old son, I knew I had to work with her again for my daughter Ruby (3 months). Not only does she put herself to sleep for naps and bedtime, she sleeps 12 hours through the night. It was a success!”
“Finally getting him to sleep through the night makes it feel like Christmas came early this year!”
Thank you for giving us the tools, knowledge and support to get our son to sleep through the night and navigate the two nap transition! A few of my friends had used Sleep Wise and I told my husband that if our little guy wasn’t sleeping through the night by 6 months I was going to call for a free consultation. Well, around the 5 and a half month mark our son’s night wakings and naps were actually getting worse and I knew we needed some help. Reaching out to Jennifer Loney was the best decision we could have made! Jennifer was extremely thorough during our consultation and quick to respond to my emails allowing us to make timely and crucial schedule changes which ultimately made all the difference. I am so happy with my son’s schedule and progress. Finally getting him to sleep through the night makes it feel like Christmas came early this year!
“My life is so much better now being rested and always knowing I’ll get consistent naps!”
My first baby was an baby who I was able to help sleep through the night by 6 weeks, my second, not so much. Naps were good but I just needed full nights of sleep and 2-3 wake ups by 3 months wasn’t good enough.
I thought about hiring a sleep consultant, but would have a few better days of maybe only 1 MOTN waking. Then a few bad ones. Finally my husband said just do it. I was a little skeptical since I had been researching and taking people’s advice and which wasn’t working. What different would someone tell me that would work?
After only 3 days, Trent was sleeping through the night…12 hours silent without a peep! 3 great naps I was having to wake him up from! It was amazing.
My life is so much better now being rested and always knowing I’ll get consistent naps! Even an 8 hr car trip and 4 days away for Thanksgiving he stayed on schedule and slept perfectly!
“Not only has my little boy’s quality of sleep drastically improved, but ours has also.”
I never saw myself as the kind of mom who would hire a sleep trainer. I took pride in being “in tune” with my baby and thought that I could wean him off co-sleeping all by myself….he was over 2 years old when my husband and I finally decided we needed professional help. That is when Jennifer “saved the night” so to speak!
My 2-year-old boy, Justen, loved sleeping with Mommy and required back rubs and multiple servings of milk to fall asleep. He would excitedly jump into our big bed every night and demand his bottle of milk…and if the bottle ran out before he was totally asleep we would have to refill it and we were back at square one. Sometimes he would drink 32 ounces of milk from a baby bottle before 8 pm just to put himself to sleep (which I later found out is twice as much as he should be drinking in an entire day)!
Jennifer was extremely supportive when I voiced my frustrations with lack of sleep and his baby bottle habit; and I have to admit I silently questioned her unwaivering confidence when she told me she could guarantee he will be sleeping through the night AND without a bottle in 3-5 nights. NOT POSSIBLE! Well, it took Justen only a few nights to adjust to a full crib in his own room, get him on a good nighttime routine, completely stop his baby bottle/milk addiction, and get him to take regular 2-2.5 hour naps. Not only has my little boy’s quality of sleep drastically improved, but ours has also.
Jennifer – your balance of genuine care for our child and family’s well-being mixed with your assertive, effective techniques have changed our lives! Thank you again for everything!
“It has truly been worth every penny, and we are eternally grateful!”
Jonathan and I were beyond tired and exhausted before contacting Kelli. Eli would wake every 30 minutes to an hour every night. He would end up in our bed and nursing pretty much all night. During the day, he rarely took naps and was always super fussy!
Now, Eli is a completely different kiddo. He is sleeping in his crib all night at just 3 months old! Eli has learned to self soothe and just seems so much happier with the consistency we now have. It has truly made a difference in our little family. It’s so nice knowing what to expect. I feel like I have become a better mom. I am way less irritable, and I am able truly enjoy our time together without getting so frustrated. In the evenings, Jonathan and I are now able to spend time with one another and feel confident in Eli’s sleep habits. We feel way more comfortable going out of town to visit our family. I am actually looking forward to going home for the holidays! I would totally recommend Kelli and Sleepwise! Kelli has been SO helpful with giving us the tools and knowledge. It has truly been worth every penny, and we are eternally grateful! 🙂
“…after 2 weeks, Alex was sleeping 11-12 hours a night with no feedings.”
From about 6 weeks old until about 3 months old, Alex would sleep through the night with one quick wake up to eat. We were putting him in the crib drowsy but awake and trying to follow the eat, play, sleep routine. Around 3.5 months old, Alex’s sleeping changed completely. He needed more and more from us to fall asleep. Some nights, he woke up every 20-40 minutes and needed us to come put his pacifier back in. Some nights, we couldn’t do anything to console him – we would try rocking, bouncing, feeding, pacifier, sometimes even bringing him into our bed, but nothing could console him. I read more sleep books than I care to admit and felt like we were doing everything we could. We desperately reached out to Kimberly, somewhat hesitantly because we didn’t think anyone could really help. But after about 2 weeks, Alex was sleeping 11-12 hours a night with no feedings. He occasionally still wakes in the night but he almost always puts himself back to sleep. Teaching Alex to sleep involved a fair amount of protesting/crying, but overall I felt good about using a gentle method and being able to show Alex that we were there for him the whole time. My husband and I had previously tried other methods unsuccessfully because we thought Alex’s crying was too much. This was where Kimberly’s support after the rough nights was invaluable – she worked with us to find solutions and to offer the support we needed. We are all happier, and my husband and I have much more energy to devote to Alex during his time awake!
“My son is much happier and less fussy now that he is well rested!”
When I decided to work with Kimberly my son had just started sleeping through the night, so we focused more on naps. However, the first night we worked together, I moved my son into his nursery from our bedroom and thankfully didn’t have any issues. This meant I could now sleep without waking at every little sound he made. While we are still working on his nap length, he is napping more consistently and falls asleep within 5-10 minutes with little to no fussing, when before he would protest and often not even fall asleep. We also dropped his middle of the night feed which kind of happened naturally. We were also able to wean him off of the paci for sleep and he learned how to self-soothe! Kimberly provided me with the tools to tackle any problem now and in the future. My son is much happier and less fussy now that he is well rested! I highly recommend working with Kimberly in order to get better Sleep not only for your little one, but yourself as well.
“Thank you for my new freedom! It’s been surprisingly easy!”
Kimberly, you have been a huge help to us and given us the confidence we needed to succeed! Harlow really has done well and despite being sick so much lately, has stuck to her sleep schedule like a champ! She went to bed tonight with no fuss but did decide to stand up a few times and laid herself down and fell asleep! I love watching her on the monitor and not having to rush in a thousand times or fail and put her in bed with me! Thank you for my new freedom! It’s been surprisingly easy!
“…we are all getting great nighttime sleep!”
Merrilee was a colicky baby from 3-10 weeks from 7pm-11pm and was unable to have an early bedtime. By the time the colic started to subside we had no bedtime routine and she still had a hard time going to bed early. After hearing about Sleep Wise, I chose Kimberly as our consultant after reading about her extensive pediatric medical background. She was very helpful and worked with us to try different strategies and find what would work for Merrilee. She even stayed with us until we all felt good about Merrilee’s sleep habits. Merrilee began sleeping 11-11.5 hours consistently around 3.5 months. And even though she hasn’t been the greatest napper, she is now able to put herself back to sleep almost every time she wakes up early from a nap. Now at almost 6 months we didn’t really experience much of the 4 month sleep regression and we are all getting great nighttime sleep! Kimberly was not only knowledgeable but was also a great encouragement for me as a first time Mama learning about my baby’s sleep needs!
“I feel like a new person, it has been LIFE CHANGING!”
“Kelley is fantastic to work with! She is incredibly knowledgable and has all the answers. Before we began sleep training I drove our 11 month old around in my car everyday for two hours so he could take a nap longer than 20 min. I fed him to sleep and he would wake up at least 5 times a night and needed to be fed or bounced back to sleep. I was nervous about sleep training and the second I contacted Kelley my mind was at ease and we were ready to begin. I was prepared for what I thought would be a rough couple of days and to our surprise, our son fell asleep in 20 min on the first night and we had to wake him up in the morning so he didn’t sleep too long. He also takes a two hour nap in the morning and a one hour nap in the afternoon. He has been sleeping solidly every single night since we started. I feel like a new person, it has been LIFE CHANGING! We can’t thank Kelley enough!”
“They are both well rested and happier than ever”
“Getting both of my children on a sleep schedule and teaching them how to sleep independently has been the best thing we could have done for our family. They are both well rested and happier than ever. Working with Kelli took the guess work out of it and gave me peace of mind that I was doing the right thing and that we would make progress towards our sleep goals. She was so understanding and supportive, and put all of my fears and apprehensions to ease. It was well worth the time, effort, and money to give my entire family healthy sleep habits.”
“We both sleep through the night and wake up refreshed and ready for the day!”
“Before working with Jeannine I felt lost and was letting my son determine when he was going to nap and eat – which created unpredictability and stress. He also wouldn’t sleep through the night which meant less sleep for mommy.
Now I have a solid routine with flexibility and both he and I know what to expect. We both sleep through the night and wake up refreshed and ready for the day! Thank you Jeannine!”
“He basically turned into a new baby in a matter of days, and now that he is sleeping through the night”
“Kelli Manley has magical powers! My husband and I are first time parents and after 5 1/2 months of bouncing, rocking, 30 to 45 minute naps, and waking up every 3 hours all night long, we decided it was time to make some changes and that we needed some help! We hired Kelli from Sleepwise Consulting and it was an investment well worth it. The very first night, our little man went to sleep at bedtime in 11 minutes and the next day, we started to put him down wide awake for naps as well and he immediately started taking 1 1/2 to 2 hour naps. The daytime schedule Kelli advised also drastically changed him from an all day “snacker” of 3 to 4 ounce bottles of breastmilk to full feeds of 7 -8 ounces. He basically turned into a new baby in a matter of days, and now that he is sleeping through the night, we are happier and more capable parents too! Kelli was responsive, respectful of our concerns or questions all along the way, supportive, and ultimately helped us achieve our sleep goals. Thank you, Kelli!”
“It feels like we finally have our family back!”
“Bedtime had always a battle with our 3 year old daughter since she figured out how to climb out of her crib, but became even more so after the birth of our son. The battles were getting so bad that everyone in the household dreaded the evenings and it felt like we had bedtime PTSD. The whole family was exhausted. We had tried several different sleep methods with no success. We were desperate and dubious that we would ever have harmony in our house again. Sarah’s sleep plan was easy to implement and stay consistent so that we went from hours of battling to her falling asleep on her own peacefully without any protesting in a few days. It feels like we finally have our family back!”
“I had planned to sleep train on my own but found myself extremely overwhelmed!”
“I had planned to sleep train on my own, but found myself extremely overwhelmed by all of the information out there. I turned to Kelley Ryan at Sleep Wise Consulting and 2 weeks later my 4 month old son was sleep trained! I have a happier baby, a schedule, and some free time – and, as a result, a newfound joy for motherhood. If you are on the fence about hiring a consultant, jump over it! It’s the best parenting investment we’ve made so far.”
“It really is the best investment we can give ourselves and Leah!”
“We started with Jennifer, when Leah was about 5 weeks old. We didn’t know how much we needed her because we just assumed we wouldn’t get much sleep for the first year. I contacted Jennifer because as a new mom I was becoming very overwhelmed with googling and talking to peers about what they did. It was amazing how much she calmed my nerves by walking us through the baby sleep process. We fully trusted her and her outline for us and it has paid off tremendously! By 9 weeks Leah slept through the night I am talking 7pm-7am!! She consistently sleeps through the night even at 12 weeks old. Don’t wait for your baby to become a bad sleeper and then reach out, start right away with this program. Thank you Jennifer for helping us it really is the best investment we can give ourselves and Leah!”
“Thank you for helping me realize that good sleepers aren’t just for the ‘lucky’ moms!”
“Just wanted to say thanks for everything. Before I hired you, Ronin’s naps we’re terrible, we’re talking 20-45 minutes every nap with him very rarely putting himself back to sleep if he were roused. That, on top of waking up so often at night (sometimes every hour after 2 am!) I was so seriously exhausted and anxious every time he was due for a nap and especially at bedtime.
I can’t thank you enough. He’s so happy and I’m so much more relaxed. I get him up at 7 and he just lights up with smiles. He goes down for naps and has the ability to self-soothe and I enjoy bedtime again because I know what to do when he wakes up.
Thank you for helping me realize that good sleepers aren’t just for the “lucky moms” …it’s a skill that is taught and that babies really need to get their rest. I am so happy with my decision to hire you! I am so grateful!”
“We are so thankful!”
“We are beyond thankful and can barely express enough gratitude to Sarah. Her plan for Brooks worked brilliantly and he was sleeping through the night by night 3! Not only has he been sleeping through the night since but he has successfully gained 2 pounds and we are now finding new rhythms and routines that make our days feel just a little less chaotic. As a parent you try everything from pinterest to google to friends and families advice, but the structure, coaching and encouragement that Sarah gave our family was absolutely priceless. Thank you Sarah for a new found confidence in helping us coach and teach our children sleep skills. We are so thankful!”
“It’s an investment you won’t regret!”
“Before hiring my sleep specialist, Kimberly Brown, my 4 month old was waking up every hour and would not sleep unless he was latched on. I was at the end of my rope with 4 other kids to look after. Within a few days my baby was sleeping through the night with only two nighttime feedings. By the end of the first week he was only waking up once. I am so thrilled with that outcome! I would highly recommend using Kimberly, she changed my plan as needed and was always quickly available to me when I had any questions. It’s an investment you won’t regret!”
“This has been one of the best investments we have ever made!”
“Our sweet Ellie, once a great sleeper, hit a regression at three months and started to take short, unpredictable naps. Her nightly wake ups started to increase at the same time. Our home and work life were beginning to struggle and that’s when we decided to hire Susan. She assured me that she would be there for us every step of the way. That is exactly what she did! By the second night, our sweet girl was sleeping twelve hours through the night. She is now taking predictable naps and we are all in much better moods because of it!! This has been one of the best investments we have ever made! Susan has turned our home and work life back around and we can’t thank her enough!!”
“In just 10 days, she has completely changed my life.”
“If anyone is having trouble getting their little one to sleep at night or to sleep through the night, I urge you to talk to Susan! In just 10 days she has completely changed my life, my husband’s and our son’s. Adam went from waking every two to three hours demanding milk all night long to sleeping through the night in just a matter of days and the process was relatively gentle on both of us. I’m finally getting a good night’s sleep and most importantly, Adam is not whiny anymore because he’s well rested every day. A good night’s sleep is the best first birthday present we could possibly have gotten him. The investment is worth every penny and more! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!”
“I never knew that babies were supposed to sleep 12 hours a night!”
“I never knew that babies were supposed to sleep 12 hours a night! After working with Susan, I feel like Marlow is the happiest she’s ever been and so are we! I will be shouting from the rooftops to let every tired parent know about Sleep Wise Consulting!”
“I have such confidence in being able to have our evenings back!”
“I am very happy to give a testimonial. We are so wowed by the progress that Lyla has made with her sleep. I have such confidence in being able to have our evenings back as husband and wife and know that Lyla is successfully asleep and going to stay asleep. That is so huge for my sanity! Naps are improving everyday and I see night and day difference between before we started with Dana and now. Thank you for all of your advice and support!”
“After just a couple of days, I could see a difference in Jack and in myself!”
“When my son was 21 months old and had never slept a night in his bed and went from bassinet to co-sleeping (which I am not an advocate for but when you are exhausted you will do about anything for sleep), I had reached my breaking point. I was tired, my husband was tired and our son was grumpy ALL the time. I knew something had to change. I saw one of our neighbors who had a small infant at the time and she looked so rested and happy. I asked her how things were going and she introduced me to the world of sleep training and Sarah Walden. Two days later I emailed Sarah and my life changed forever! Jack was sleeping in a twin bed in his room and would wake up at night and come into our room screaming and crying the whole way until I put him in our bed and he went back to sleep but neither my husband nor I did. While it was sweet cuddling with Jack at night, the hour or more it would take me to get him to sleep only for him to wake a few hours later was not so sweet. Once I talked to Sarah I knew as long as I trusted her and went with what she told me to do things would get better. After just a couple of days I could see a difference in Jack and in myself. He was sleeping better and sleeping ALL night in his room in a CRIB!!! We are now about 5 weeks later and Jack is sleeping 12-13 hours ALL night and nap anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hrs in his crib and he wakes up HAPPY!!! No more grumpy Jack or grumpy mommy! Our house functions better, well all have more patience with each other and we ALL sleep!!!! I can’t thank Sarah enough and I recommend her to anyone I know who is having sleep issues with their children!! You won’t be disappointed I promise!”
“It is hard for us to put into words how much Jennifer and the Sleep Wise program changed our lives.”
“It is hard for us to put into words how much Jennifer and the Sleep Wise program changed our lives. Before coming to Jennifer, getting Molly to nap and go to bed was a full time job. We would have to use every sleep prop imaginable and she would never get a good nap in her crib, which meant we never had a free hand the whole day. We just thought that Molly was a “needy” baby and we would just have to deal with it until we thought she was old enough to get on a schedule.
We reached out to Jennifer when Molly was three months as her sleep had got even worse, waking up multiple times at night, never seeming to be very hungry, and then waking for the day as early as 3:30 am. Jennifer was able to talk with us the next day and was able to answer all of our questions and designed a program to meet Molly’s specific needs. On day two, Molly slept through the night in her crib, with minimal protesting, and was taking all of her naps in the crib. For the first time since she was born, we actually had free hands and time, and were no longer exhausted so we could then truly enjoy the wake time we had together. Both us and Molly were thriving!
Molly continues to sleep through the night and loves her sleep schedule and routine. She is much happier and calmer, and all thanks to Jennifer. This program is truly magic and we look forward to working with Jennifer until Molly graduates to her big girl bed!”
“Jennifer’s services were worth every penny!”
“Working with Jennifer made a HUGE difference for my family. We were consistently up in the middle of the night with our daughter, often more than once, and nap times were a real struggle. Now my daughter, my husband and I get more sleep than we thought possible…and boy did we need it! Jennifer created a sleep plan geared specifically for my family and my comfort level. Her support, guidance and knowledge were essential for us to make the necessary changes to get more sleep. We’re so grateful that our friend of a friend passed along her business card. Jennifer’s services were worth every penny…and then some!”
“We have time for ourselves and our marriage now.”
“When we contacted Jeannine we were frustrated and exhausted. Although I had read books on baby sleep and scoured the internet, I could never find the structured guidance we desperately needed. When we started with Sleep Wise, I was totally lost. Midi almost never slept on her own. Unable to get her to sleep at night, she would always end up in our bed nursing frequently all night. Naps were totally erratic and always in her swing.
Now two weeks later, she falls asleep almost instantly in her crib and most nights sleeps right until morning. She takes 3 good naps a day with very little fussing. We have time for our selves and our marriage now. I truly feel I am a more confident mom and appreciate the time I spend with our baby so much more. Jeannine provided the support we needed through this journey. It was tough to hear our daughter cry, but Jeannine reassured us through educational resources, phone calls, as well as extremely quick replies to all our e-mails. We also know the support is there for any hiccups in the future! Thank you so much!”
“Your program has been life changing!”
“Thank You!!! Your program has been life changing! This guy hadn’t slept alone in 9 months which meant Mom never slept. By night three we both slept 12 consecutive hours!!!!! Amazing!!! I am a better Mom and Josesito is a happier baby!”
“My husband and I couldn’t believe how quickly she responded to the new schedule!”
“I am what you would call an “attached parent”… we co-slept starting the night my precious daughter was born (at home!) and nursed on demand around the clock. It wasn’t a problem in the beginning – I wouldn’t trade my co-sleeping days for anything and I loved nursing all the time. The problem was, although she transitioned beautifully to her crib at 6 months, Sloane was still waking up several times per night to nurse. Also, she was never a good napper and as I was trying to re-start my company, this added a lot of stress for our household. Not to mention, my husband and I were exhausted – always at the mercy of her sleep (or lack thereof) and would spend lots of time in the car and on walks trying to get in extra zzz’s!! At 9 months, it was time to do something. I hated the thought of letting her cry, but I knew that there would be a little protesting if we were to get to a better place as a family, and I was right. My husband and I couldn’t BELIEVE how quickly she responded to the new schedule and what I thought would be a grueling few weeks of “training” ended up being the beginning of our sleep-filled nights almost immediately upon following Sarah’s recommendations. Sloane now knows how to put herself to sleep, takes great naps and is in general an even happier baby than she was before, which I didn’t think was possible. We are thrilled and so incredibly thankful for this new season in our home! I’m rested, and that makes for a better mama!! Thank you, Sleep Wise!!”
“Kelli helped our baby girl, our marriage, and our sanity!”
“We thought this was just another thing we would try that wouldn’t work. To our amazement her night time wakings were cut in half by night 2. She was paci free and putting herself back to sleep and within 1 week, she was sleeping completely through the night! For the first time in 2 years, we actually had a good night’s sleep! Kelli helped our baby girl, our marriage, and our sanity!”
“Kelley helped us make small gentle tweaks that made such a huger difference.”
“Working with Kelley Ryan has been an absolute pleasure! We started introducing healthy sleep habits into our little boy’s routine at 2 weeks old. He learned how to fall asleep on his own and was sleeping through the night by 8 weeks. At 5 months old, HE STOPPED! He had learned to roll over and was moving all around the crib all night long. He would have multiple hour long stretches of talking to himself, whining, crying, fussing, basically doing everything but sleeping. He wasn’t hungry. We didn’t know what to do. After a month and a half of no improvement, we realized we needed help. We were exhausted and he was exhausted.
We were definitely skeptical of hiring someone because we felt like we were already enforcing healthy sleep habits. We had also been successful in sleep training our first child without any issues. We didn’t know what else we could do to improve what was already in place. We were nervous that Kelley would recommend a hard core “cry it out” plan which we weren’t uncomfortable with. Boy were we wrong. Kelley helped us make small gentle tweaks that made such a huge difference, and we saw that difference within just a couple of days. One of the biggest challenges that we faced was working with our daycare which was not being very consistent with our schedule. Kelley was super involved in helping us work through this which was a key factor in getting us some night time rest.
Now, we are all getting rest! Our little boy is waking up much more rested and is so much happier and healthier for it. My husband and I are actually getting sleep which has made a huge difference on our relationship with each other. We are also better, more present and patient parents to our 4 year old. I highly recommend working with Kelley. We are so glad that we did!”
“She is waking up happier and far more rested than ever before.”
“Prior to working with Jeannine, my husband and I were convinced we had been cursed with kids who were terrible sleepers. I am now so incredibly happy to say that my 18 month can fall asleep on her own and sleep through the night. The bedtime process has become so much easier, on both my daughter and us as parents, and she is waking up happier and far more rested than ever before. Jeannine was terrific to work with throughout the program and provided the expertise and support we needed. Thank you, Jeannine!”
“My family is now well-rested and overall much happier.”
“Before we started working with Jeannine, Graham was taking over 30 minutes at night to fall asleep and having to be rocked to sleep for most naps. His naps involved a lot of crying and were also lasting only 30-45 minutes on average. After working with Jeannine, Graham falls asleep at night within 15 minutes and sleeps all night long. He is able to self soothe with the use of no props. He also is able to put himself to sleep for all naps and is taking hour plus naps at home 95% of the time. We are still working through naps at daycare but they are slowly improving as consistency improves. My family is now well-rested and overall much happier. We no longer have to dread the unpredictability of naptime and bedtime because we know Graham can now put himself to sleep and stay asleep. Thank you Jeannine!”
“I had no idea that some of the things I was doing could cause sleep issues!”
“After 12 months of dealing with inconsistent naps, I decided to hire Jeannine at Sleep Wise. She tweaked our schedule just enough so that my son became a much better napper. I had no idea that some of the things I was doing could cause sleep issues! Thank you Jeannine for giving my LO more sleep!”
“We finally decided to hire a consultant and I can honestly say that was the absolute best decision we have ever made.”
“Before I worked with Sarah and Sleep Wise Consulting, me and my husband were at our wits end with our son Weston. We were first time parents and struggling a lot with getting him to go to sleep and stay asleep. He would wake up multiple times throughout the night and it would take forever to get him back to sleep only for him to wake up soon after. Needless to say it was torture. We finally decided to hire a consultant and I can honestly say that was the absolute best decision we have ever made. Our consultant Sarah was so nice and accommodating it made it much easier to handle the whole process. My son started sleeping 8 hours the second day and now sleeps from 7 am to 7 pm every night with ease. Sarah was so generous with her time and advice and made sure she was always available for any questions we had and to really walk us through everything. She answered all of my concerns and then some. She gave sound advice and positive affirmations that helped me to keep going when it got tough. If it wasn’t for her I probably would have given up but she assured me I was doing the right thing and it would be worth it and boy was she right! I cannot thank her enough for all her help and kindness throughout this whole process but mostly for giving us back some sanity! My baby is much happier now and he is way less fussy than before. Everyone compliments us on our “happy and calm” infant now. He goes down for naps and bed so quickly and easily it’s like a miracle and it has honestly made our lives so much easier. We thank you and Weston thanks you!!!”
“We didn’t think it would be possible!”
“Prior to working with Kelley, our then 9-week-old son could not fall asleep on his own. He constantly needed his pacifier during naps, and at night he needed to be held to fall asleep, or he would scream. We were putting him down to bed around 10 pm, completely asleep, doing a dream feed around midnight, then expecting one or two more wakings throughout the night. In addition to being exhausted, we were discouraged and frustrated; we’d read Babywise and were convinced our baby should have been sleeping at least 9 hour stretches at night by that point— what were we doing wrong?
Now at 14 weeks, our little boy sleeps like a champ. We put him down for naps wide awake, walk away and come back at the end of the nap to wake him up. At bedtime, we put him down at 7 pm wide awake, and then we have to go in and wake him up at 7 am. Kelley helped us drop the swaddle and the pacifier, all in just a few weeks. We didn’t think it would be possible!
We are so incredibly grateful to have the gift of sleep return to our household. My husband and I are getting the same amount of sleep — if not more! — as we did prior to having a child. When the next baby comes around we will be calling Kelley right away.”
“My only regret is that I did not start sooner!”
“Jeannine is absolutely ahhhhhmazing !!! My 8 month old baby has always struggled with sleep ! She got up multiple times at night and only took 30 minute naps! Very frustrating!!!! After only a few days of working with Jeannine , my baby is sleeping thru the night an average of 12-13 hours and is taking 1.5-2 hour naps!! This is nothing short of a miracle ! Please please call her if you need help ! You will not regret it! My only regret is that I did not start sooner!”
“If you’re thinking about using her or this program…do it!”
“Working with Kimberly and Sleep Wise Consulting is the best decision we have made for Graham and our family in the past six months. Before we started the program, Graham was waking up anywhere between 8-15 times a night. We were all sleep deprived and it made the days especially hard with an infant and a toddler. After two short weeks working with Kimberly, I am so proud and relieved to say Graham is sleeping twelve hours a night and taking 2-3 great naps a day. Kimberly was wonderful to work with and gave us a clear and concise plan. She held our hand through the entire promise and answered any questions we had. If you’re thinking about using her or this program… do it! I promise it will be life changing. We have our evenings back and a well rested and happy baby (and parents!). “
“This is absolutely priceless to me!”
“Thanks to Sleep Wise and Kelley my family is rested and I can enjoy my last three weeks of maternity leave feeling great and soaking up the time with Blaine and our toddler instead of feeling like a zombie! This is absolutely priceless to me!”
“We will be forever grateful!”
“Our life before working with Jeannine had been really trying for about 6 months. My three year old wouldn’t stay in his bed and was waking up 4 to 5 times a night. He would even chase me to the door when I put him in his bed. He always ended up in my bed and neither he, nor I were getting any sleep. His behavior during the day had gotten really bad. I felt like everything was out of control.
After working with Jeannine our lives have been blissfully restful! My son falls asleep on his own and stays in his bed all night long. During the day he is a completely different child. I have my happy, respectful and loving child back. I am so glad that we worked together on this investment in my family. We will be forever grateful for Jeannine!”
“For the first real time since I’ve given birth, I enjoyed being a mom.”
“I want to extend a HUGE thank you for what you’ve been able to do for me in just three days. Ever since we started sleep training, I feel like a different person since I’ve given birth. Before we started sleep training, I would get very frustrated with Matthew’s crying and have very little patience to deal with him.
But now with this plan you’ve given us, I am much more patient with Matthew. I haven’t been frustrated with him, but instead I’ve been able to enjoy quality time with him.
For the first real time since I’ve given birth, I enjoyed being a mom. You are a big part of the reason why this is so. I know there will be setbacks along the way (teething, sickness, etc), but I now feel confident on how to handle these thanks to your guidance.”
“Audrey is now a super happy baby!”
“My husband and I are first time parents with no experience. For the first 8 weeks Audrey slept on me and every time I tried to put her down for a nap in her bassinet, swing, etc she would wake up immediately and cry. Our daughter was born only 5 lb 5 oz so we thought maybe she hated to be put down because she was so small and got cold very easily. The first night my husband and I followed Kelley’s sleep plan Audrey was sleeping in her crib. Within no time she was sleeping 15-18 hours a day compared to the maybe 8-10 she was before. Also she now sleeps 12 hours at night with on average one 20 minute waking to eat. I am so glad we stuck to this plan because I can now sleep in my own bed again and spend more than 5 minutes with my husband. Audrey is now a super happy baby and that makes for happy parents!”
“We saw results immediately!”
“Working with Sarah at Sleepwise Consulting has been life changing! My son was 3.5 months old, and had been napping in a swing for over 2 months due to reflux – he simply would NOT nap in his crib, or on any flat immobile surface, ever. His night sleep was average – I was still feeding him late into the evening and he would sleep anywhere between 5-7 hours a night. I knew he was capable of more because of his age and because he’s a very chubby baby (17 lbs!). I go back to work in a few weeks, and was desperate to get my son on a consistent, healthy schedule before then so we could both be well rested.
Fast forward to working with Sarah – she quickly put us on a new, easy to follow schedule, and we saw results immediately. My son slept from 9:30 – 7pm on the very first night, and consistently got better and better throughout our two week plan. He’s now an independent sleeper who is able to self-soothe – sleeping nearly 12 hours every night with zero sleep props. And his naps! I’m happy to say that we have officially broken the swing down and put it in storage – my son is now taking 3 long naps per day, and my sanity is restored. This was by far the best money I’ve ever spent – my entire family is so much happier because we’re well-rested. Thank you, Sarah!”
“You took two of the biggest skeptics and turned us into firm believers of Sleep Wise”
“We are SO pleased with our results! Jonah is sleeping a million times better now! His mood has also improved tremendously now that he is getting the sleep he needs. You took two of the biggest skeptics and turned us into firm believers of Sleep Wise! We cannot thank you enough for your help-we could not have done this on our own.”
“I feel like I got my LIFE BACK!”
“After doing “Eat, Play, Sleep” routines with our first child and it working so well, we knew we’d start right away with our second daughter! Sadly, all of our “tricks” didn’t work with our colicky, dairy-sensitive child and we were at our whits end! I felt like I constantly had a child attached to me between both kids, my husband and I were arguing over the “plan” for each day and night, and the baby would scream for what seemed like ALL DAY. We finally decided we needed someone else to be “in charge” and we could then implement a plan together. Cue Sleep Wise. Sarah helped us with all sorts of things related to Clara’s sleep, feedings, and routines. Clara was a 30 minute napper and was up a few times per night to be rocked or held and had a late bedtime. Now, if Clara wakes from a nap early, she puts herself back to sleep 90% of the time. She also sleeps 11 1/2 – 12 hours per night with a 7pm bedtime! I feel like I got my LIFE BACK! My husband and I get time to hangout in the evenings and I am confident in Clara’s sleep without worry. She is so, so happy now! Our entire family is so well rested and is thriving on the consistency. We can’t thank Sarah enough!”
“Good sleep makes her so much happier!”
“Before hiring Sarah Walden my daughter April would take very short unorganized naps. I couldn’t get her to nap in her crib, even though she loved the crib at night time for bed. It seemed so strange to me. I had tried following the babywise schedule from birth and felt like I had done so much right but I didn’t have that schedule mastered like babywise says should happen. I scoured Facebook and websites looking for answers on how to create this schedule for my daughter. She needed it because she would take short naps, wake up happy for 30 minutes then get so upset screaming and crying because she was so overtired. She needed consistent good sleep. I knew that it would make her a happier baby. She was also waking typically once in the middle of the night to eat. It wasn’t ideal but it was manageable. So Sarah’s plan for April was fairly simple to follow, and she gave me a 100% guarantee that it would help my daughter sleep better. Within 3 days April already had a few successful nights sleeping through the night and naps were greatly improved. By the end of our two weeks my 5 month old was taking 3 naps a day in her crib & sleeping through the night with very minimal wake ups if any at all. If she did wake up she learned how to self sooth herself so I didn’t even need to get up to help her out with it. Also she was able to take naps while I was out at church or at a friends house. I thought that she wouldn’t be able to nap anywhere but her crib. But I was wrong, the routine we used was manageable even with a change to her surroundings or her schedule. Good sleep makes her so much happier!!! I would highly recommend Sarah and Sleep Wise Consultants.”
“We have our bed back and it’s amazing!!”
“My two youngest children, Davey (age 5) and Grace (age 7 months old) had different but equally draining, poor sleep habits. Since Grace was about 2 months old, she was up every 45 min-1 hour ALL NIGHT LONG. Grace also would only nap ON us or possibly in the car after screaming for 15-20 minutes. Because Grace also had bad eczema, I felt like I needed to co-sleep with her so that I could be there to help her through the night. I was finally at the point where I could not function during the day anymore due to being so overly tired all the time. I was hesitant to reach out for help, after all, she is my third child, I should know what I’m doing right? Wrong! All my kids are so different and I realized I needed help and fast. While we were at it, I figured we should probably cut the bad habit Davey had started about a year prior, of not being able to sleep without daddy. My husband is not good at telling Davey “no”, so he was not thrilled when I made the decision to hire a sleep consultant. Kelley turned out to be the best thing for us and my husband was quickly on board once he saw the amazing results!! Ever since the FIRST NIGHT, Davey has slept in his own room all night long and with only a nightlight! We couldn’t believe it!! Grace was a little tougher, however, after just a few short days, she was falling asleep on her own, only waking up 1-2 times a night, as well as sleeping in her crib for her naps. Kelley’s techniques and experience made this easier than I thought and I will forever be grateful to her for helping us. We have our bed back and it’s amazing!! Sleep is so important and I’m happy to be getting my Zzzz’s; I would highly recommend Kelley to anyone who has children with any kind of sleep issues. Let her work her magic, you won’t regret it!”
“I just want to thank Kelley for her help! She saved this mama from going insane! I saw results after day 1 and she always had a solution for any little issue we ran in to! This was worth every penny!”
“The Sleep Wise program was the best money we have spent on anything baby related.”
“Our sleep consultant Dana was amazing. We started working with Dana when our daughter was 16 weeks old. Chloe would take short naps, wake multiple times a night, plus she was dependent on a pacifier, swaddle, rock n’ play and often us holding her to sleep and back to sleep when she’d wake early. I’d read every sleep book, I was exhausted and I just wanted someone I could talk to, to help guide me through the sleep training process.
Dana was that person and I’m so thankful. Our daughter is now able to go to sleep on her own, naps well & has slept through the night. The Sleep Wise program was the best money we have spent on anything baby related. I highly recommend Dana and Sleep Wise Consulting.”
“Not only is he sleeping SO much better at night, but Sarah created us a daily nap/eating schedule that we desperately needed.”
“My husband and I were skeptical when we first decided to try the 15 min free consultation. Our 5 month old son was up every hour or two every night and was getting 2 to 3 bottles during the night as well. Needless to say, we created some bad habits and we were feeling lost, hopeless and irritable.
Sarah assured us that we were not horrible parents and that she could really help us turn things around. She delivered! We saw results as early as night 2 through the Sleep Wise program.
Not only is he sleeping SO much better at night, but Sarah created us a daily nap/eating schedule that we desperately needed. We had constant communication through the whole process. She never seemed annoyed when we had questions or concerns through our time with her.
Bottom line, our family needed structure and a plan. Working with Sarah gave us that. Our now 6 month old is sleeping good and thriving and we feel like we have a little bit of our life back.”
“I wish I had reached out earlier!”
“I always figured Blake was just a “bad sleeper” and that I would have to pat his back until he fell asleep and that he would never sleep through the night. He was 13 months old when I reached out to Jennifer and she said it’s not fair to say Blake is a “bad sleeper”. While he had some good independent sleep skills already he needed to be taught how to fall asleep on his own and if he woke up in the middle of the night he needed to learn how to fall back asleep on his own. The first couple nights were tough but we stuck to it and by night 2 he wasn’t getting up between 4-6am, he was sleeping 12 hours straight. Naps improved too; she helped me transition to one nap a day. I wish I had reached out earlier; would have saved me some major stress! While every night or nap isn’t perfect, I have the skills and foundation now to handle it.”
“Words can’t express how we appreciate you!”
“My husband and I were skeptical and pessimistic at first on this whole sleep training idea. It was just so hard to believe that our little one would sleep through the night, let alone in his crib, and take naps all by myself. Nonetheless, you made us a believer by showing us the way and making it happen!
Words can’t express how we appreciate you, Dana! You have been a wonderful sleep consultant and we have gotten so far because of you.
I know that we will be tweaking his sleep schedule while he changes/grows, but you have given us the tools and knowledge we need to make our little man a good sleeper and we have no one else to thank but you. Thank you once again, Dana!”
“He is a much happier baby!”
“Before starting to work with Dana, our little Mason had so many sleep props in order to get any kind of sleep and would wake up 4-6 times a night. By the 3rd night in working with Dana our little one was getting in 12 hours of sleep a night! We honestly couldn’t believe it! Two weeks later, Mason is now sleeping through the night and falls asleep within minutes of putting him in his crib. He is a much happier baby now that he’s getting the right amount of sleep!”
“We are proof that it works!”
“Our lives have changed…he sleeps through the night (till 7am which I never thought was possible) and naps are so much better. He’s happier, we are happier parents and happier as a couple. Jeannine is amazing and we are so grateful for all she’s done and for you as well Katie! It’s made such a profound impact on our lives – our ability to get out, make plans etc and have babysitters at night! We were resigned to the fact that he just wasn’t a good sleeper – so we are proof that it works!”
“Now he is sleeping 12 hour nights straight, taking great naps and is so well rested!”
“Before we started working with Jeannine our son was taking short naps and waking up every two to three hours during the night. He would only go back to sleep if he was nursed again. He wouldn’t sleep anywhere but his crib or the car seat. We were exhausted and tried several different thing to try and help him sleep through but nothing was working and each day got a little worse.
But now he is sleeping 12 hour nights straight, taking great naps and is so well rested. We can also create a sleep friendly environment at our families homes so that we can be away from home a little more often. My husband and I are also getting the sleep that we need in order to do more than just get through the day. The best thing we have done for our family is work with Jeannine!”
“Our baby was sleeping through the night by the 3rd night!”
“Our baby was an awesome sleeper until he turned 4 months old and the sleeping changes from newborn sleep to adult sleep. He couldn’t get the hang of falling back asleep on his own, and we didn’t know how to help him learn. We could not get him to nap longer than 30 minutes at a time, and therefore I was spending entire days fighting to get him 4-5 naps per day because he was constantly tired and needed to be rocked to sleep. We had researched some crying techniques but I’m emotional jelly so knew that whatever we decided to do we had to stick with it, or it would only get worse if I caved in the middle of the training. We heard about Sleep Wise Consulting from friends of ours who said they had unbelievable results. This was a gentle sleep training technique that, yes is difficult to hear your baby cry, but I never felt like he thought we were abandoning him, because we were always there to comfort him. This is what I was most afraid of when I heard “sleep training.” Our baby was sleeping through the night by about the 3rd night. He was just under 5 months old. That wasn’t even one of our goals – he was still allowed to get up two times to feed if he wanted to, but because he had the tools he needed to put himself back to sleep, he didn’t even need to feed anymore in the middle of the night. We’ve been sleeping through the night ever since. We were able to consolidate his crazy nap schedule into three nice long naps. Kelley gave us the tools to move forward and we were able to easily transition to a two nap a day schedule when he turned 6 months old. I would (and do) recommend this to everyone who needs a little help/support teaching their baby to fall asleep on their own. Like I said, I am emotional jelly and I did it. It was hard, but I sleep, and I’m a much better/happier mother because of it. Thank you so much Kelley and Sleep Wise Consulting!”
“I knew I needed help and she was missing out on a critical part of her health and developmental needs without such important sleep.”
“We welcomed our first daughter, Hatton, after a very long wait. We were overjoyed to finally become parents to our precious girl! I remember so clearly – during our hospital stay – hearing each nurse say “wow she is so alert. She is quite vocal.” At the time, I figured they said that to every new parent…gracious was I wrong!
By week 6, we were in the throws of colic, attempting to soothe a child who took 2 hours to go down at night and would wake every 2 to 3 hours until morning. By week 11, I knew I needed help. I did not have the time or emotional capacity to read a book on how to support a child’s healthy sleep habits, but I knew she was missing out on a critical part of her health and developmental needs without such important sleep. I witnessed the cycle of exhaustion morph into tears that contributed to physical discomfort that would ultimately keep her awake. I had no idea how to support our daughter, and I felt absolutely helpless.
When I heard the words “sleep training,” I envisioned laying outside of my daughter’s room for 2 hours listening to her scream with a box of kleenex by my side. I knew that was not an option for our colicky girl. Oh what a gift to discover the methods of Sleep Wise! Jennifer was so gracious and compassionate with us from day one. She created a personalized, specific, and 100% feasible strategy for both my husband and me and instilled confidence in our abilities as parents. Eight days after our first night of implementation, Hatton slept through the night and has done so since!
The greatest gift from this wonderful process? Waking up to a rested and smiling child. We are eternally grateful for Jennifer!”
“I am still in awe and so very thankful that we committed to this!”
“When Leanna Mar turned ONE, I knew it was time for her to sleep in her own crib and in her own room. I was worried about how we were going to accomplish this since she was co-sleeping, nursing every 2-3 hrs during the night baby. She was also not falling asleep until 10ish every night. It was crazy. Once I started Leanna’s sleep program with Jennifer, our lives changed. By the third night, my child was sleeping 12 hrs straight. I am still in awe & so very thankful that we committed to this.”
“Just after a couple of days working with Kelley, we notice huge improvement with everything!”
“Working with Kelley is truly amazing and life changing for us! Before we made the call to Sleep Wise our son was waking up multiple times during the night with half the night co-sleeping and naps were a hit or miss. It became a struggle to get him to sleep, stay asleep and even eat consistently. Just after a couple of days working with Kelley we notice huge improvement with everything! Our son has continually been sleeping through the night, naps great (too great!) and eats like a champ with no fuss. He goes down to sleep happy and wakes up happy, which was our goal when we first started! Thank you so much!!”
“Our entire family is happier and we ALL sleep at night!”
“Jennifer Loney was a God-sent helping our third born sleep WELL! We began his sleep training right after the newborn stage, at 4 months. Starting early made the biggest difference. Our son was waking up 4-6 times a night and his naps were sporadic. As a newborn, he didn’t want to miss any of the action, and would keep himself awake for over two hours at a time during the day, which was too long for an infant. My husband travels often and after coming home from a long trip, I approached him with having a sleep therapist. After one day home with lots of crying, and this being our third child, he said, “Pay her!”
Our success with sleep training was almost immediate. The first night and first full day was rough, but the second night, our son slept for 10 hours straight. The third night, he slept for 12 hours, and the fourth night, he dropped his night feeds. After that point, he was sleeping consistently through the night AND taking three naps a day averaging between 1.25 hours-2 hours PER nap. The success blew our minds! I almost feel like I am bragging by saying this, but we really are a much happier and a very well rested family. It feels amazing to say that we have a 4 month old that sleeps all through the night! We remain disciplined and orchestrate our schedules around their sleep schedules to ensure for happy and well rested kids. It has been so worth the added discipline to teach them great sleep habits early on. Now, in the evenings, my husband and I KNOW, our children will be sleeping for 12 hours that night for us to enjoy much needed alone time together!
Jennifer was calm, patient, and has a true passion for teaching children how to sleep well. She had so much empathy when I was overwhelmed and frustrated, and reassured me every step of the way. Never once did my husband or I feel alone in this process. We were coached so well, it’s as if she was in our home with us. We have a young toddler and we already plan on having her guide us to transitioning him to a big boy bed soon. We have also already said this will be the FIRST purchase we make for future children! If you’re thinking about this still, STOP! The sooner you sign up, the sooner you will sleep! Best money we EVER spent!”
“I took to the internet for advice on how to best navigate sleep challenges…but that left me feeling frustrated because I found conflicting advice.”
“As a first time Mom with no other experience with babies, I’m learning so much as I go. My baby girl would sometimes sleep okay but often wouldn’t and there was no predictable timing to her sleeping. I wanted some consistency for her health and also for my sanity. I wanted to have a more predictable schedule so that I could plan things around her naps and not have appointments scheduled when she was tired and needed to be sleeping. I also wanted to stop early morning or middle of the night wakings. I took to the internet for advice on how to best navigate sleep challenges and to help my baby get the best rest she could. But that left me feeling frustrated because I found conflicting advice. I wanted my baby to receive the most love and nurturing I could give her but I also didn’t want to create bad habits that would cause more problems in the future. So I found myself feeling lost and stressed out whenever my baby wasn’t sleeping as she should be and didn’t know what I should do. I decided to hire Jennifer as a sleep consultant so that I could have an expert tell me exactly what to do (and what not to do). I loved that I got to work with Jennifer for two weeks so I could ask her tons of questions along the way as things came up. All her advice has worked because now when I put my baby down for a nap, I know what time she will be going down for a nap and I know how long she will sleep. And she wakes up in a good mood. At night she’s sleeping 12 hours so I have quality time with my husband before bed and all three of us are getting uninterrupted sleep. I feel relieved to be educated on what the right way is to help my baby sleep well. Thank you for that peace of mind, Jennifer!”
“My husband and I have time at night together again!”
“We were in such a horrible place before we contacted Kelley from Sleep Wise. Remy would only take naps in the carrier and was impossible to put to bed. He was waking 2-3 times a night and then would just stay awake forever. Sometimes we were wrapping him in the middle of the night! No one was sleeping and my husband and I were arguing all the time. I was missing out on one on one time with my toddler that he desperately needed with a new baby around. Remy was only 9 weeks but I knew this was the time to sleep train. My toddler was so easy to sleep train and I had no idea where to even start with Remy. He was such a different child and I had zero discipline with a toddler around. I opted for the quick fix and created bad habits. Enter Kelley!!! Wow. I cannot say enough praise for her and what she did for my family. Remy sleeps from 7-7 and takes 3 solid naps in his crib, not on me!! No swaddle. No paci (and he was addicted). Self soothes! My husband and I have time at night together again. I get to spend time with my toddler while Remy naps. She took on every problem with Remy with such ease and confidence which gave me confidence. She encouraged me to have the discipline to stick to it and not take the easy road. Seriously I tell every mom I know about our success story because getting sleep when sleep deprived is the best thing on the planet!! I cannot thank Kelley enough for what she has done for me and my family.”
“We could not be happier with the results!”
“There are not enough words to express how wonderful Dana was throughout our sleep training. This was the second time that my husband and I hired Sleep Wise and we, once again, could not be happier with the results. Dana was absolutely AMAZING to work with. She gave us the confidence that we could make this work. In the middle of our time together we had to transition Carter to a toddler bed and she made the process so much easier. She will forever be one of our favorite people!”
“I would call her all over in a heartbeat!”
“Annabelle is quite the character! She knows what she wants and she wants it now. She’s an opinionated free spirit with a love for life. So to spare you the book, I will give you a highlevel of what our sweet Annabelle has been through. Annabelle was born with a syndrome called Pfieffers Syndrome, but unfortunately we didn’t find out until she was about 18mo. So what did this mean for Annabelle? This meant she had tight airways, snored from day one, and work up every hour at night as an infant. Finally when she was 13 months old it was discovered that she had sleep apnea that had been causing her not to sleep, and therefore not grow like she should have been. Shortly after it was discovered they removed her tonsils and adenoids and whaala! She started sleeping so well and started growing!! Fast forward to 16mo… we move from Las Vegas to Nevada, but to make things interesting we take a week vacation in Colorado. With some consistency and determination we were able to get her to sleep through most of the night again. At 18 months (when we discovered her Pfieffers Syndrom), it was determined that the syndrome had not only caused the tight airways, but Craniosynistosis which is the early fusion of the plates in her head. She had a minor surgery in Jan to relieve pressure on the brain, tubes placed in her ears in March, she was in the ICU for RSV for 4 days in April, and on June 1st she had a major surgery where they removed pieces of skull to make room for her brain. This last surgery kept us in the hospital for 6 days and kept mom by her side 24/7.
Needless to say when we got home a normal sleep pattern was out the window. No matter what we tried she fought us tooth and nail. We tried laying with her, but she just played and when she finally did fall asleep and we tried to leave her room, she would wake up. I spent 3 hours rubbing her back one night. This went on for a few weeks until we finally threw in the towel. Everyone was tired and cranky and we needed help. Jennifer gave met with us and gave us the sleep routine and rules, and we were all super excited! Even Annabelle was excited about her sleep chart. After about a week, and Annabelle finally realizing we meant what we said, she slept through the night!! She still tries to test us every once in a while, but we stick to our guns and she knows the rules and goes back to bed. I couldn’t be happier with Jennifer and everything she helped our family with. I would call her all over again in a heartbeat!”
“She is overall a happier baby!”
“When my husband and I initially tried transitioning our daughter into her crib we thought we were doomed. Our child would only nurse to sleep, napped only when in someone’s arms and refused to sleep in her crib. I was referred to Jennifer by a friend and initially thought, I’m her parent I should just know what to do. Well, hiring Jennifer was the best thing we could have done for our girl! Not only is she now sleeping through the night after two weeks, but she naps consistently in her crib and is overall a happier baby because of the good quality sleep she gets now! Jennifer takes you step by step and explains what you’re doing and why. It wasn’t always easy but it has been well worth it. Jennifer is beyond supportive and has been a blessing to our family!”
“We couldn’t be happier!”
“We’ve been struggling with having consistent good sleep since Marley was 2. She was great until she figured out how to climb out of her crib and then things went downhill from there. She climbed out at 18 months and we were able to get her to stay in a pack n play until she reached 2 but then she climbed out of that as well. Once we transitioned to the toddler bed everything changed. Naps were a struggle as was bedtime. It was very hard to get her to relax and stay in her toddler bed. We ended up rocking our 2 year old to sleep!! We were not even doing that when she was a baby! Eventually we got away from that on our own but we did need to lay with her and then night wakings started and so did early wakings! She was either waking and coming in our room on her own, or waking up crying. And then early wakings came in as well, anywhere from 5am – 615am. Naps went out the door at 3 years but then she started falling asleep almost daily this summer due to early wakings.
Finally we decided to call Sarah and with her guidance we went from laying with her to fall asleep, her coming in our bed almost every night and waking at 530am to now falling asleep on her own, sleeping all night and waking no earlier than 6:15am. We are hoping to make it consistent to at least 6:30am but we are so happy to even be where we are now! We did all of this without our daughter shedding a tear. It was such a great process. We just got back from vacation and she did amazing there too! We couldn’t be happier!”
“She helped us put all of the pieces into place”
“We are so happy to have worked with Sarah. We knew our little girl had the potential to self soothe but we didn’t know how to get her there. We were rocking her to sleep for naps and she was screaming until she passed out, just to wake up after 30-40 minutes. She was also starting to have night wakings due to the 4 month sleep regression. We knew it had to change so we contacted Sarah. She helped us put all the pieces into place to help our little girl fall asleep on her own for naps and bedtime. She helped me feel confident enough to let my baby girl self soothe. Now she falls asleep on her own for her naps and sleeps anywhere from 1-2 hours for her naps and at night she sleeps 12 hours and wakes up happy and refreshed. I fully recommend working with Sarah for any sleep issues you may be having. “
“We even skipped the 4 month sleep regression!”
“We contacted Kelley from Sleep Wise Consulting when our second little peanut was 13 weeks. Our first baby did so well on a babywise schedule, we thought it would be the same with our second. He had a bit of reflux at the beginning and only slept on me at night and held during the day. We also started a big remodel on our house and so he slept in the pack and play next to me in the living room at my parents while my husband and my toddler slept on the guest room. It finally got rough when I had to go back to work and he was still waking up every hour after 4am and only gave us 30 min naps. After talking to Kelly he started sleeping 1.5 hours and even before we officially started our plan, he slept all night with only a few tips from her. I only wish we would have started sooner, because our entire household slept and was happier, I even had more time to spend with my toddler. It was by far the best money we’ve ever spent on anything. He is now 25 weeks and he sleeps like a champ. We also have a schedule going forward that I’ve been able to use when he seems to need a schedule change, we even skipped the 4 month sleep regression and have sailed smoothly through leaps and growth spurts. I cannot thank the Sleep Wise team enough.”
“The only thing we regret was that we didn’t turn to her sooner.”
“We turned to Dana for help after 7 months of waking every 2-3 hours every night. My husband and I were experiencing emotional strain, and our boy was very obviously not getting the sleep he needed! During our consultation, Dana was very polite, professional, and straightforward with her goals for Jameson’s sleep. We were in shock to hear how much sleep he was missing out on and, to be honest, nervous to start. Dana talked us through the two weeks; she was our motivator to continue and see it through. By night three we had a sleeping, happier baby boy. We cannot thank Dana enough for all of her guidance and support. The only thing we regret was that we didn’t turn to her sooner. Thank you, Dana!”
“We are thrilled that we reached out to Kelley!”
“My husband and I were hesitant to ask for sleep help with our one year old. He was such a good sleeper in the beginning and we thought we could get him sleeping through the night on our own. After several months of trying on our own we finally contacted Kelley. After our son started sleeping through the night after just a few days of working with her our only regret was not asking for help sooner! Kelley was very patient with us and kindly answered the many questions we had. She wasn’t judgmental and always had our son’s best interest in mind. Our son is now on a schedule, has more energy when he is awake, and seems happier! He no longer needs to be rocked or held to fall asleep. He takes a nap each day and goes to sleep all on his own after his new bedtime routine. We are thrilled that we reached out to Kelley and we are so thankful that we have some time for ourselves in the evenings again.”
“I’m so glad we trusted Sarah and the team because the end result is a happy sleeping baby and an overall happier household.”
“Grayson was giving us fits from 7 pm to midnight every night. It was a vicious cycle of feeding, sleep for 30 minutes, wake up and cry and repeat, for hours! Once he finally settled, he was still waking every 3-4 hours to eat during the night. With two other small children in the house, we were mentally and physically exhausted and battling anxiety as bedtime hours approached each night. Before starting, Grayson was sleeping solely in his swing, swaddled. I am happy to say now at 15 weeks old, he sleeps solely in his crib with no swaddle or paci. He goes down wide awake and puts himself to sleep within minutes. For the last 1-2 weeks, he has slept 12 hour stretches at night, and we have to wake him most mornings. Sarah was there every step of the way to answer our questions, calm our nerves and guide us through the motions. It really is amazing to look back and see how much progress he made in such short time. I’m so glad we trusted Sarah and the team because the end result is a happy sleeping baby and an overall happier household.”
“I am now a member of the human race again!”
“We are so deeply grateful for your help, Dana. I am now a member of the human race again. I can’t even describe what a difference this sleep training has made in our quality of life. And Yusef seems so much happier too. Thank you so much, Dana!”
“We never thought it was possible for her to sleep through the night…especially 12 hours, but four nights in she was doing it all on her own! Thank you Jennifer!”
“Atlas slept through the night on night two!”
“We were referred to Sleep Wise Consulting by a friend. We thought that after 4 months of waking up 1-3 times a night, an uninterrupted night’s sleep sounded too good to be true. It wasn’t! Atlas slept through the night on night two and now consistently sleeps through the night without any night wakings. His naps are longer and we actually have a routine that we can plan our day around. Jennifer was so patient and encouraging that by the end of the two weeks, she felt like part of our family. We could not be more grateful for getting our sleep back. We are all happier and healthier because of it. Thank you Jennifer and Sleep Wise!”
“I’m one happy mama!”
“Before starting with Kelley my 12 week old had a pacifier that I was having to insert numerous times during naps and during the middle of the night. She had to be held to fall asleep and most naps I was holding her until she was asleep and when she woke up early holding for the rest of the entire nap. My life was trying to get her to sleep. Her naps were short and she never went to sleep on her own. She was waking once a night to feed which I was okay with. Kelley helped my family and I in so many ways in just a few short weeks. I still can’t even believe that she sleeps 12 hrs at night now. Most days I have to wake her. We took the pacifier away, unswaddled her and she has learned to put herself to sleep on her own. No more holding her for hours for a nap. She loves going in her crib and does not cry at all. This is a dream come true. All of the people in my life can’t believe it!! I can’t thank Kelley enough for what she has given my family. I only wish I had called 3 years ago for my 3 year old. I did not think that I was going to be able to do this but I trusted Kelley and did everything she told me and I have the happiest baby ever!! I’m one happy mama too!”
“He is a completely new baby!”
“We started with Sleep Wise & Jeannine when my son was 10 weeks old. At this point we were taking nightly shifts between me and my husband to hold the baby while he sleeps in our arms. He refused the dockatot, bassinet, swing etc. So for 10 weeks we were zombies. This is baby # 2 and we also used the sleep consultants for our 2 year old daughter at 4 months old. Anyway, he was nursing every 2 hours through the night too and I was
exhausted. I couldn’t get him on a schedule between the gas/colic, reflux etc. We decided to work with Jeannine at 10 weeks after our 15 min consultation. I struggled to start so early but it soon became the best thing for our family. He was successfully sleeping through the night within a few days. We now put him down and he goes to sleep by self soothing. It relieved a lot of stress because I wasn’t able to spend time with him to put him down for naps as I have to tend to my 2 year old. Now I am able to lay him down and he goes to sleep without any props. It’s such a relief to be able to know what is wrong with my baby now since he is on a schedule. He is a completely new baby. Nolan is always smiling and laughing and happy when before he was always fussy. He needed sleep! I chose Jeannine because I knew she had been in a similar situation with a similar age gap in our children. She was awesome and gave me peace of mind time and time again through our training.”
“This decision was the best money ever spent!”
“Thank you Jeannine for all the sleep our family has gained since working with you! Before Jeannine, our 10 week old was sleeping 4-6 hour stretches at night and napping 30 minutes at a time. We had to hold the pacifier in her mouth to get her to sleep for naps and usually had to hold her to fall back asleep once she woke from her naps. I knew that our baby was capable of sleeping much better and since hearing many success stories about Jeannine and the ladies at Sleep Wise Consulting, I decided to purchase package. This decision was the best money ever spent! By night TWO, our baby was sleeping through the night! Jeannine was with us every step of the way and helped us remove the pacifier, dock a tot, and eventually swaddle. Our baby now is able to go to sleep on her own, in her crib, and soothe herself back to sleep if she wakes early from a nap. We are so pleased with how much she has accomplished in the 3 weeks during her sleep plan and are so thankful Jeannine gave us the tools to give her the gift of healthy sleep.”
“Our family is so grateful to have three children that are great sleepers – thanks to Katie!”
“We are so happy we chose to use Katie to help our twins learn how to sleep from the start. We used Katie with our older son, and it was amazing how she got him sleeping through the night, so we trusted she would help us with our twins. I was so scared that I would never sleep again because of the horror stories I had heard about twins. Before they were born she told us what to do to help them learn to be great sleepers on their own, and they are! They take good naps through out the day, and are great sleepers at night. With Katie’s help, we had two babies sleeping through the night around 11 weeks! We could not have done this without Katie’s help!!! Our family is so grateful to have three children that are great sleepers – thanks to Katie!”
“Kelley helped us not only with sleep, but also with nutrition, play time activities, and tips for car naps and vacation.”
“Before working with Kelley, my little boy was all over the place with naps- some were 30 minutes and some were 3 hours. He was still waking once or twice at night and the second time I would have to feed him to get him to go back to sleep. Fast forward 2 short weeks and my little boy takes two long naps every day and is sleeping all night. I get a lot of “you have such a happy baby!” comments now! Kelley helped us not only with sleep, but also with nutrition, play time activities and tips for car naps and vacation. She was a pleasure to work with and I can’t say enough good things about her. I even overheard my husband, the skeptic, telling a friend that getting a sleep consultant was well worth the money. Thank you, Kelley!”
“I highly recommend Sleep Wise to any parent who is tired of struggling with their babies sleep issues alone!”
“Before Kelley, Riley was waking up 2-3 times every single night (sometimes for hours!), we were constantly playing the pacifier game and naps were never longer than 30 minutes.
After Kelley, Riley was consistently sleeping 8 hours straight and, for the first time since he was born, slept all through the night (12 hours!) and naps have consistently improved.
I highly recommend Sleep Wise to any parent who is tired of struggling with their babies sleep issues alone. These gals will make your life easier and help your little ones get the rest they deserve (and you too!)”
“Jennifer was so incredibly sweet, patient, and easy to work with!!”
“Working with Jennifer was life changing! My baby was just about 7 months and getting him to nap was a struggle! I would fight for hours to get him to nap for barely 20 minutes. I was also in a terrible routine of nursing him to sleep. As soon as I laid him in his crib he would cry and melt down. I was at the end of my rope! I cannot say enough great things about my experience with Sleep Wise Consulting! Jennifer was so incredibly sweet, patient, and easy to work with!! Within two weeks she had my baby napping on a schedule and sleeping through the night. I am now able to lay my baby down wide awake and he falls asleep completely on his own within 5 minutes! The difference is night and day! We no longer deal with overly-tired melt downs. Having a predictable schedule has been the best thing I could do, for not only my baby, but the rest of my family as well! I highly recommend Jennifer to all my friends who are experiencing sleeping trouble with their little ones!”
“I literally feel like a new mom and a better wife!”
“We started Babywise from day one. We read the book while I was pregnant because a few people recommended it to us. The first weeks were draining, but that is newborn life right? My daughter, Savannah, did well with eat, wake, sleep. Putting her to sleep was the biggest challenge, but she was still new, so I didn’t stress too much. I had to hold her to get her to sleep, but then the holding started to take longer and longer each day (at least an hour), and the second I put her down, she was miraculously wide awake. I knew holding her to go to sleep was a sleep prop. Every week, I felt like we had to add a new prop so she would go to sleep. First the pacifier, then we needed to cover her eyes with the burp cloth, then butt pats. I knew we were heading down a bad road. At this point Savannah was only waking twice at night, then once, so I felt like other than taking forever to put her to sleep, we were doing okay. Then eleven weeks hit……I felt like it was the four month sleep regression that reared it’s ugly head early.
At eleven weeks, night wakings increased. First two wakings, then three or four. And let me remind you that each time she woke up, it would take at least an hour of holding to get her back to sleep. Then I hit rock bottom. I got to the point from about 4 am on I would just hold her the rest of the night. At one point, I would let her sleep on my chest in her recliner until DWT. She began waking early from naps, so I would hold her the remainder of the naps to make it to the next clock time on my three hour schedule.
I was getting little sleep, and little done at home. I was exhausted and cried a lot. A lot!!!!! And all because I couldn’t figure out her sleep (not to mention breastfeeding is hard too with a dairy free baby). Why wasn’t Babywise working for me? I was doing everything the book suggested. I asked advice daily, tried everything people suggested, and it just wasn’t working. I wanted to throw in the towel. Maybe Babywise wasn’t for us. I even had to unfollow all Babywise groups on Facebook because I was OBSESSING over sleep and it was driving me insane.
I finally convinced my husband that we needed to call Sleep Wise Consulting. At least for the free 15 minutes, what was there to lose. I had read so many of the mothers who worked with them had so much success. I knew it was an investment, but I also knew we needed help. So we called and I am so very thankful we did.
We worked with Kelley. She spent so much time getting to know Savannah and our family. She gave us strategies and tips, and a schedule just for Savannah. She answered my billion questions daily. I am not going to lie and say it was a simple fix. It took work, but I was willing to do anything to get my little one sleeping. Our main goal was to develop independent sleep skills and get night sleep better. If we could improve naps, that was a bonus. On night two or three, Savannah was already sleeping through the night!!!! That was way higher than our expectations, and I couldn’t believe this was my child. She was falling asleep at naps and bedtime all on her own. No more holding for an hour each time she slept. It was glorious. I literally feel like a new mom, and a better wife! It has been over three weeks since we started working with Kelley, and other than one or two MOTN wakings during the first week, we have a baby that STTN every single night, naps are awesome (no more 45 minute intruder), and she can put herself to sleep all on her own without any sleep props. I feel like it was months ago since we worked with Kelley because I feel so rested. I call Kelley a miracle worker because she would help me make small changes to ensure Savannah was getting exactly the amount of sleep she needed. I will be forever grateful for her.”
“The day after our plan started with Kelley, I had seen a complete change in both of them! They are just HAPPY…all the time!”
“I wasn’t sure hiring a sleep consultant with a full plan was the option for us. They knew how to put themselves back to sleep, had good sleeping habits, etc. I just knew I could do it on my own… Well, after weeks of trying to tweak our schedule I decided maybe it wasn’t going to be as “easy” as I thought. The day after our plan started with Kelley, I had seen a complete change in both of them. They were usually happy most of the time, but even just changing the bedtime routine, they are just HAPPY! All the time! No more crying while we get dressed at night.. it’s the little things! Their whole demeanor has changed. We are now on a consistent 2 nap schedule & I am confident to make changes in the future on my own. So thankful for that!”
“I knew the first couple of nights were not going to be easy…however they almost were!”
“Before I made the decision that I needed help sleep training my daughter I dreaded night. I would have to go lay down and nurse my daughter to sleep at 7pm and continue nursing every couple hours throughout the night. Then I ended up having to stay there the rest of the evening because if I left she woke up, which was really taking a toll on the quality time I needed with my husband. My daughter was grouchy and always tired because she never got a good nights sleep! Naps were just as bad I rocked and nursed her and anyone else had to rock, walk, bounce everything to get her to sleep and you couldn’t set her down. After finally choosing to go ahead and contact Katie to help me, I knew the first couple of nights were not going to be easy.. however they almost were! It went way easier than I thought and my daughter is rocking it. She ended up sick at the end of our 2 weeks which made it harder but she is back on track. I couldn’t have done it on my own and we are so thankful to finally have lives and a well rested baby! Thanks Katie!”
“Following Dana’s plan, he slept 12 hours by night 2!”
“Before Dana, Callum was waking up multiple times a night and up for the day at the crack of dawn! I was an exhausted zombie. When I was told that Callum is capable of sleeping 12 hrs a night with no feedings I was skeptical. His sister, who’s 3 never slept that long and he was waking up so much it didn’t even seem possible. Following Dana’s plan he slept 12 hours by night 2. Amazing!!!! I thought I would just have accept that Callum would always wake up but now that’s he’s well-rested he’s happier, healthier and thriving!
Dana was a pleasure to work with. She’s a very kind and encouraging person. She truly dedicated herself and gave it her all when it came to improving Callum’s sleep. Thank you Dana!!!! You’re a lifesaver!”
“On night 3 of working with Dana, he was sleeping through the night consistently!”
“Dana helped us to realize my son’s amazing sleep potential! When we started working with her, he was 6 months old and was waking 1-3 times a night and needed to nurse back to sleep. He was addicted to his swing for naps and if you tried to put him down in his crib, he would cry and only sleep 40-50 minutes.
Our goals were for him to sleep through the night and to improve naps. On night 3 of working with Dana, he was sleeping through the night consistently! By the end of our two weeks, he had become a napping pro in his crib. Dana gave us the tools needed to meet our goals!
It’s been two months since we worked with her, and we are still applying these tools whenever something affects his sleep (i.e. learning to crawl, teething, leaps.) We use what we’ve learned and are back on track within 1-2 nights!
His improved sleep has made my happy boy even happier. He loves to explore and learn new things and I am so happy that we made this investment in our son. Of course, my husband and I are benefiting from his great sleep habits as well. We no longer go to bed afraid to fall into too deep of a sleep knowing that there could be a crying baby to answer to at any moment.
Throughout the entire process Dana was incredible! She took the time to explain every step thoroughly, to answer all of our questions and most importantly to give us the encouragement we needed to help him reach his sleep potential! We are so thankful for her!”
“The best money you can ever invest is in your child’s sleep and your own!”
“Before we started working with Kelley, we would have to bounce/rock and sing our 6 month old, Ace, to sleep for naps and at bed time. It took anywhere from 5 minutes to 35 minutes, sometimes more. He would take short 30 minute naps and wake up anywhere from 1-6 times a night. To top things off, he was sleeping in our room, in our bed-something I swore I would never do when I was pregnant. But sometimes, when you haven’t slept more than 2 hours in a row and you are physically exhausted, you do the things you said you would never do to try and get more sleep.
Enter Kelley. She gave us a solid plan to address all of our sleep issues. Her reassurance, support, and knowledge helped us to quickly get him into top sleeping shape. She helped us navigate this sleep process WHILE Ace was learning to sit up AND break through two new teeth (que sera sera). Not only did Ace do it, but he aced it! He was able to move into his own room and crib, learn to fall asleep without being bounced/rocked or sung to, AND he can fall asleep by himself! Kelley believed in our family and gave us the tools to make our dreams of helping our son to develop important sleep skills that will benefit him the rest of his life. The best money you can ever invest in your child’s sleep and your own! I feel like I got a piece of my life back that I’d been missing, Kelley is the best!”
“Sleep Wise Consulting was a godsend!”
“Working with Kelley was simple, streamlined and successful! I contacted Sleep Wise in hopes of getting my son to put himself to sleep on his own but it surprisingly had the added benefits of night weening and nap extending. Our son was 13 weeks and 13 pounds when we started sleep training. Kelley was very professional and super organized. Tracking sleeping and eating data helped Kelley make slight adjustments to our wake times and nap lengths that really made a difference in the end. I had always heard that sleep training would only take a few nights but I was still absolutely shocked when my son went from sleeping a max of 5 hours at night to 12 hours in only 4 days. I had also accepted the fact that my son would always be a 45 minute napper but after only a week and a half he was consistently taking 2 hour naps in the morning. Most importantly, we now only spend a few minutes putting our son to bed at night, instead of hours playing the pick-up out-down game, which has given my husband and I some much needed bonding time. Sleep Wise Consulting was a godsend. I highly recommend working with them!”
“Having Sarah to guide us in teaching our daughter healthy sleep habits worked much better than all of the expensive things you find on baby registries!”
“Thank you, Sarah! We started working together when my second child was only 7 weeks old. We saw immediate improvements in her sleep and now at 12 weeks old we are all happily sleeping through the night! Why do we all spend so much money buying contraptions to soothe our babies and help them to sleep when the BEST investment we can make is helping them learn to soothe themselves!? Having Sarah to guide us in teaching our daughter healthy sleep habits worked much better than all of the expensive things you find on baby registries!”
“I am beyond grateful for Dana, her patience and how much she genuinely cared about my baby.”
“To say I am grateful for Dana is a complete understatement, and while life changing sounds a bit dramatic, it really is the best word I can use to describe my experience working with her. Prior to working with Dana, Ellery would take three 30 minute naps and would wake 4-5 times every night to nurse. At first I just convinced myself it was because she was a little baby and didn’t have the ability to sleep longer, but as the weeks went by and she continued to wake this frequently, I knew something had to change. The sleep deprivation was really starting to get to me, and I would go to bed with severe anxiety.
I am beyond grateful for Dana, her patience and how much she genuinely cared about my baby. She blew my expectations out of the water and helped achieve what I really thought was impossible. After our two weeks together, she gave me so many amazing resources to help continue my successes with Ellery and navigate through future potential challenges down the road. In addition to being a sleep miracle worker, she is one of the most kind, understanding, patient, encouraging, genuine persons I have ever met.”
“We worked with another sleep consultant before you and it was hours upon hours of screaming. My husband and I are so thankful for you and it’s been less than a week.”
I’m so proud of him. He’s doing so great. I”m honestly shocked. Really shocked! This is not how it went last time AT ALL when we worked with another sleep consultant. We had hours upon hours of screaming for well over a month before I just gave up. I wish I would have known about you 6 months ago. The combo of feeding schedule, nursing, wake times, etc. has been amazing for him, thanks to you! Tommy and I are so thankful for you and it’s been less than a week! He’s laughing and smiling more and it’s so sweet to see!”
“Sleeping through the night by night 1”
“We noticed a difference the first night and it only got better with him falling asleep on his own, in his own room and sleeping through the night by night 1! We went from rocking/singing and bed-sharing to independent sleeper in no time! Thanks Jennifer.”
“She is now 8 months old and sleeps 12-12.5 hours and naps like a dream!”
“My 16 week old had been waking every 1-3 hours since birth. I just chalked it up to she’s a ‘bad sleeper’. Katie proved me wrong! She was encouraging, supportive, and she truly cared about Joanna. Joanna became a different baby once Katie guided us through the process of teaching her independent sleep skills. She is now 8 months old, sleeps 12-12.5 hour nights, and naps like a dream! So thankful for Sleep Wise Consulting!”
“I couldn’t be happier to say that our little guy has crushed all the goals we set out for him!”
“We started working with Dana when our son, Mav, was 11 weeks old. During our initial conversation with Dana she asked what our goals were. We wanted him to sleep through the night, not wake up at 5 a.m., take longer naps, and eliminate the witching hours. After two weeks I couldn’t be happier to say that our little guy has crushed all the goals we set out for him. I would have never believed that in just two weeks his sleep could be completely transformed, but it was! We are so proud of him, the bags under our eyes are dissipating, and we are truly enjoying every waking moment. Though it was challenging, it was the best thing we could have done for our family. Dana was tremendous to work with. Her support and encouragement was much appreciated and I truly enjoyed checking in with her regularly. It’s something I plan to do as Mav continues to grow and change – she has clients for life!”
“I could have never come up with the perfect plan that Kimberly created!”
“As a second time mom, I had read all the books and blogs on sleeping and had sleep trained my now 2 year old when she was a baby. I felt confident I would be able to do the same with my second child but quickly found this to be impossible to do on my own. My second didn’t respond to any of the methods I tried (and I tried everything!) and when he turned 4 months old I knew I needed help. I could not tend to my toddler and meet her needs while working off little to no sleep. Not to mention, I was stressed out not knowing if I was trying the right things or if my sons sleep would ever improve. I reached out to Kimberly at Sleep Wise and with her help everything began to change for the better. She listened to my needs and analyzed my sons sleep habits in order to create the perfect sleep plan for our family. She thoroughly went over this plan and answered the million questions I had. I felt even more comfortable taking her advice knowing her background as a nurse practitioner and former employee at a pediatric sleep clinic. After the first night my son began sleeping longer stretches and within the first week he was sleeping through the night! I could never have come up with the perfect plan that Kimberly created but I’m so thankful she was there to get us to getting sleep again!”
“The hugest difference now is that now when he wakes up in the morning, or from a nap, he is smiling and happy!”
“I can not say enough about Katie Pitts and Sleep Wise. When Oliver was 2 months old, my husband and I trained him to sleep through the night, and by 3 months he was able to sleep 10-11 hours at night. However, once he began sleeping at night, his naps got progressively shorter, to where he would wake up after 30 minutes. When he would wake up, he would be cranky, and I began to miss my sweet baby, wondering when these short naps would end. I read every sleep book, and tried everything and I could not get Oliver’s naps to lengthen! By the time he was 5 months, he was getting increasingly cranky and fussy after his short naps, and he was just miserable to be with! He also was waking up at 5 or 5:30 am, and I couldn’t get him to sleep longer (we couldn’t put him to bed later than 7 or 7:30, because he was so miserable in the evening from short naps) – we would give him a pacifier to get him back to sleep but it didn’t always work, and he would wake up fussy and stay that way all day. I was so sad to not be enjoying my time with him as a stay at home mom. I finally called Katie around the time he turned 6 months old. She listened to every detail and wrote a detailed proposal for his specific needs. The first morning we implemented her plan, we had to actually wake Oliver up in the morning, he was sound asleep! .By the end of the first week, he had had more long morning naps than not, and within three weeks, both morning and afternoon naps were getting longer, not to mention, he sleeps 11-12 hours at night uninterrupted. The hugest difference is that now when he wakes up in the morning, or from a nap (or when we wake him up), he is smiling and happy! Katie wasn’t just able to give me the plan for Oliver, but watch his habits, and help me learn how he functions and be able to discern his individual sleep needs and implement them. I can’t believe this smiling baby is once again a joy to be around at home during the day! He is so happy, and smiley, and goes to sleep with absolutely no help from anyone or anything. One night, during our sleep training, a fire broke out on our balcony! I had to wake up Oliver and run downstairs with him. He was outside for 45 minutes being passed from neighbor to neighbor and when the coast was clear, I came back up, placed him right in his crib, and never heard a peep. No rocking, no pacifier, no anything. He is an independent sleeper and is all the better for it!”
“Working with Katie Pitts has changed my life in the best ways possible. When I started with Katie, my 7 month old, Tommy, was waking up 3-4 times a night. In swooped her expertise and in a matter of a few days his wakings went to 1 and by the end of our time together, my son was sleeping through the night! His 30 minute naps are now turning into 1.5-2 hours – something I thought I would never see!
Katie was incredibly timely and thorough with her calls and emails and went above & beyond when Tommy through in his stubbornness 🙂 For the first time since my son was born, I was able to get back on the elliptical, let my husband know when we could eat dinner, and leave the house in the evenings knowing he would not wake up! Most of all, I know my son is getting the amount of sleep he needs to grow up strong and healthy!
I told Katie personally and I will reiterate it here – working with her is the best investment I have made – I would recommend her to any parent!”
“I can’t thank Sarah enough for her help to our family. I have never been in such a weak and desperate place and Sarah met me there and helped quickly.
Thank you for supporting me personally and helping my sweet Caleb get some sleep. After 6 complete months of never even sleeping 6 hours, and more often being up 5-6x/night, life feels like a ‘dream’ right now. We are all so grateful.”
“I read Babywise and followed the basic principles for my son but still we had early wake ups , short naps, and some middle of the night wakings. As my son turned 8 months I felt like I had missed something; I questioned what I was missing and truly feel like I was failing. We decided to hire a sleep consultant because I needed someone else to think about Clark’s sleep with me. I was able to send her our sleep log and get feedback, tips, and suggestions on what to do next. For me, working with Katie gave me such peace of mind. I had someone on my team when troubleshooting sleep issues. Spending time learning from a Katie was the breathe of fresh air; and the encouragement I needed. The sleep package was worth every penny.”
“Before we started working with Kelley, our 15 week old son was a pacifier addict. He would sleep for about 4-6 hours at night before waking up for a feed, which was great, but then would wake up anywhere from 1-10 times between 4 and 7 AM crying for his paci. He also was a habitual 32-40 minute napper – never longer! We were frustrated and exhausted…but immediately saw results after we started working with Kelley! He slept through the night after just two nights, no more middle of the night feeding or early morning waking for his paci. After about a week he adjusted to three solid naps per day, sleeping anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours – we often have to wake him up from his naps now! Kelley was so kind, easy to work with, and accessible. I can’t thank her enough – or recommend her highly enough – for all that she’s done for our family!”
“I realized it was luck that my 1st was such an excellent sleeper and I assumed my 2nd would follow suit but that wasn’t the case. By 5 weeks my little girl wasn’t extending her night sleep. She was waking every 2.5/3 hours 24/7. I wasn’t functioning well but I thought it was too early to call Sleep Wise because I kept hearing that this was normal newborn behavior. After 6 weeks, we were still in the same spot. I felt that she could give me a longer stretch at night. And my girl was more irritable compared to my son. Out of desperation I used the 15 min call and Jeannine Conte was confident that she could help me. She believed me! She agreed that my babe could do better. So the next week (at 7 weeks) we started with Sleep Wise.
After the first week, we had ditched the swing (2 out of 4 naps in the swing and half her night sleep was in the swing), all sleep was in the crib, she was able to put herself asleep within 5 min and she was consistently giving me 2 hour naps. After the 2nd week, we ditched the swaddle and we are now in the sleep sack. By this week (10 weeks) we got an 11 hour stretch last night! It looks like a 12 hour night is in my near future. I gave Jeannine some lofty goals and we met every one of them. Best of all, my daughter wakes up happy and smiling every morning and she is no longer irritable. She loves to hang out and watch everyone. The extra sleep has helped us to see her true personality.
My husband was skeptical about using a sleep consultant but just this week he reflected on our daughter’s progress and agreed that this was a good investment in all our sleep and mental health.
If you have a newborn and you’re struggling, you don’t have to endure the sleep deprivation. There is hope! She’s now a better sleeper than my 1st! Just amazing!! Thank you so much Jeannine for giving my family back their sleep!”
“I read almost every sleep training book available and despite this, our daughter London just couldn’t sleep. I tried everything and exhausted and frustrated by my baby’s hourly middle of the night awakenings, I contacted Katie. With Katie’s help and encouragement, London now sleeps a solid twelve hour night and takes two successful naps. I’ve come to realize it wasn’t just one thing that Katie suggested. Rather, it was how she used her expertise to put it all together in a successful sleep training program. I only wish I had started working with Katie sooner!”
“Working with Sarah has been so instrumental in getting the sleep that our family needed for over a year! She shared with us the skills and knowledge we needed in order to commit to helping our daughter learn to sleep. Before Sarah’s help, our little girl would only fall asleep in our arms after reading countless books, nursing multiple times, and lots of rocking. She would wake up almost hourly during the night to seek out the same comfort to fall back asleep. Now she says “bye” when I lay her in her crib and she puts herself to sleep…and stays asleep!! It has given us some adult time to enjoy things. We are generally much happier now that we are getting sleep. I feel more confident leaving her with caregivers and our baby seems to be eating better since sleeping more.”
“Our 6 month old baby girl was sleeping well for naps, and going down for bed well at nighttime. We were on a great schedule and many people would probably wonder why we would even hire a sleep consultant! Our issue was that we wanted our baby to be sleeping straight through the night with zero wake-ups. So we reached out to Dana and asked for her to help us through the process. Having Dana walk us through the process helped us to become more consistent and not give in when we were tempted to divert from the plan! Now, thanks to Dana, our daughter is sleeping much better through the night! And as an added bonus, my husband and I have learned so much more about baby sleep. We now understand key principles in developing independent sleep habits and have a good idea of schedules for each baby stage as we move forward. If you are struggling big time with your baby’s sleep, with inconsistent naps or a baby waking every 2 hours through the night, then hire Dana and you will see great improvement. She knows her stuff. We get two solid naps a day (1.5 to 2 hours each) and have a great night sleeper. I think that’s a win!”
“I cannot thank Jeannine enough for the support, guidance, and confidence that she provided to our family. Before working with Jeannine, Jackson relied on a bottle to go to sleep at night and would only nap for 30 minutes during the day. In such a short time, Jeannine was able to help Jackson learn how to put himself to sleep soundly both at night and during his daily nap, which is now two hours long! What amazed me most was how Jeannine was able to work within our current daily routine, and with a few minor adjustments, give us such amazing success.”
“I requested assistance from one of the sleep consultants with Sleep Wise Consulting and was paired with Kelley. I opted for a 15 min phone consultation then added a week of email correspondence for extra assistance. The reason for reaching out was my pretty great 6 month old sleeper (usually 8-10 hours of sleep with no wake ups!) was continuing to rise early (5am). Despite a month of dealing with the early wakes and cries, I was desperate to figure out how to fix it – I tried sneaking in a bottle, holding him in his dark room, doing 5 minute checks until wake time – none of it helped! Although I was so pleased he could do so many hours on his own, I was getting frustrated that he couldn’t finish through and make it to at least 11 hours, which would be the best for his health and development. Literally day one of her suggestions, my baby responded so well to 2 naps and within days was sleeping 6:45pm-6:30am. It is hard work to stay consistent with a schedule but it has made such a difference in our home. Now my baby is getting the rest he needs and in hand I am able to sleep better at night! We are all happy and well rested! Best decision to have an expert look at our day-to-day routines and to help us find a schedule that works for all of us. Thank you, Kelley!!”
“We can not thank Kelley enough! Bedtime used to be super stressful for my twins and me. After looking over our schedule Kelley made some suggestions to help bedtime go smoother. A few days later and bedtime is a breeze. The added bonus is the schedule changes allowed my girls to have the best naps they have ever had too!”
“Before we started working with Jeannine, our 10 week old baby boy, Randon, was waking anywhere from 25-45 mins into his daytime naps. I’d run upstairs and try to put his binky in his mouth in hopes of soothing him and getting him back to sleep. Sometimes it would work, often it didn’t. I found myself sitting in on his naps, just killing time in the dark, to try to be there when he awoke and to get to him faster with the binky. I was miserable. I had no down time, no time to get anything done, and no time to myself. At night, we were spending an hour and a half trying to get Randon to sleep for bedtime. When we contacted Sleep Wise Consulting, Randon had started waking up almost every two hours during the night from about 10 pm to 6 am. We felt we were spending all of our time just trying to get our baby to sleep. We didn’t know what we were doing wrong. We had read all the books, kept him on a consistent schedule, had the perfect bedtime routine (so we thought), and our baby just did not want to sleep.
We scheduled our 15 minute consultation with Jeannine and were desperate to start as soon as possible. After three weeks of working with Jeannine, things have dramatically improved! No rocking, no shooshing, no pickup put downs. His nights are now 7 pm – 7 am…and for the first time ever, he slept through the night with no feedings! During the day he’s now taking full 2 hour naps. I have so much time to get things done, Randon is way happier, and best of all, my husband and I actually feel like we can function because we’ve been getting sleep.”
“After fourteen long and sleepless months, Katie rescued us! My son Cole had never been a good sleeper. He required thirty minutes to an hour of rocking, bouncing, singing, shushing and crying (him and me) before he would fall asleep ̶ if he fell asleep at all. He slept in ninety minute intervals and would often be awake for hours in the middle of the night. After fourteen months the lack of sleep had negatively impacted every aspect of our life. We contemplated investing in a sleep consultant for months before actually hiring Katie. I wish we had done it sooner! With Katie’s help Cole now puts himself to sleep every time, he takes great naps and sleeps through the night! We will never be able to thank Katie enough for being so optimistic and thoughtful through the whole process. She was thorough and reliable. You could also tell that she was really invested in helping my son get the sleep he needed to thrive; therefore, allowing us to get the sleep we needed to help him do so. Sleep Wise Consulting was by far the best parenting decision we have made and was worth every cent.”
“We just finished a three week session with Kelley. She was awesome to work with and made a HUGE difference. We started at 9.5 weeks and Paxton was having a really hard time with his bedtime (crying for up to 2 hours before going to sleep), waking up for two middle of the night feeds, and naps that had previously been good were falling apart. Now at 12.5 weeks he has started sleeping through the night (11-12 hours), goes down very easy for bedtime and naps and we have gotten rid of all sleep props. She also helped us transition out of the swaddle (it was easy peasy for us). We are so glad we did this. We were doing things about 90% right but she helped with some really important things – small changes that made an immediate and large difference. We read a few other people’s posts about Sleep Wise consulting and thought “Why can’t they just share what they learned?” And the short answer is that every baby is different; even if you are already on a good schedule or following a good routine, there are probably a few changes that will help everything click into place. Kelley helped get to the bottom of things really fast and we saw immediate results. They give a free 15 minute consultation/evaluation so at the very least, check that out. We feel like we have gained days of our lives back because Paxton is sleeping so much better! Since both kids are in bed by 7pm, we have the whole night to ourselves again!”
“Despite all my efforts in getting our daughter off to a good start sleeping, I could not get her to take longer than 45 minute naps and she was still waking twice a night at 12 weeks old. I just wasn’t sure what else I could do to improve her sleep but I knew she was capable of better sleep. I myself was exhausted from being up multiple times a night. I asked Kelley if my sleep goals were reasonable in two weeks to obtain. Kelley was amazing in finding what Charlotte needed to extend her naps and nighttime sleeping. Within a day she was already taking 2 hour naps and doing so well we actually had to cut down her daytime sleep because she was getting too much! I couldn’t believe it! At the end of our two weeks she was taking three very reliable naps and sleeping through the night. Kelley’s confidence and reassurance during our emails and phone conversations helped me understand what Charlotte needed and was she was capable of in regards to being a great sleeper! Good sleep and rest so that you can enjoy your child is worth every penny. We’ve already recommended Kelley to ALL the new parents in our life and will continue to do so!”
“Before working with Katie at Sleep Wise, our little Mia was waking up anywhere from 3 to upwards of 20 times each night – at almost 6 months old! The night after night of perpetually interrupted sleep left us all exhausted and frustrated. While we had a great schedule and routine going for us, and despite a few attempts to sleep train on our own, things weren’t getting better. We knew we had to find a way to help Mia sleep better. Katie helped give us the strength and guidance to help Mia become an independent sleeper. With some minor schedule and routine adjustments, Mia is now a baby who is able to self soothe during night wakings. Katie helped us give Mia gift of lifelong healthy sleep habits. We are all sleeping longer and more soundly. Katie also helped us with age-appropriate schedule changes (for example, going down to 2 naps), navigating through teething, making changes to Mia’s sleep environment, and she paid close attention to where we needed to tweak things to make the schedule work better for Mia and her sleep needs. It is wonderful to know that we have the extra support from Sleep Wise whenever things should change or regress. Thank you so much, Katie!”
“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!”
“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 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!”
“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 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!”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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!!!”
“My daughter Riley is 13 months now. We worked with Katie when she was 7 months old. Working with her changed everything! I rant and rave to anyone I hear having a sleep problem. Riley has done amazing since 7 months. I was so against the cry it out way and your method was gentle and made me feel so comfortable doing it that way. Your program was worth every penny and if I had to do it again, I would have done it sooner!! Thank you SO much for sleep at night and sleep with just my husband. I’m forever grateful for your services.”
“I must admit I was a little skeptical of sleep training in general but Jeannine with Sleep Wise Consulting changed that. My daughter was 2.5 and we were expecting her little sister’s arrival within a few months and she was still being rocked to sleep and waking several times a night where she needed help getting back to sleep. Jeannine really worked with us on stuff we were already planning such as moving her to a new room and “big girl bed” and specific things we needed in our bedtime routine. After expecting an all-night battle with my strong-willed girl, I was completely amazed that she was asleep on her own within 30-40 minutes. She woke up a few times but went back to sleep with little intervention. But by the fourth night she was asleep within minutes and slept completely through the night on her own. At the end of our package time, Jeannine helped us tweak bedtime to a little later since my daughter was now actually getting TOO MUCH sleep. It has been a game changer and we will definitely be contacting her again if we need help with #2. Thank you!!!”
“I honestly don’t know what we would have done without Kelley! My family is beyond grateful for her and the amazing support and guidance that she gave us. Before we contacted Sleep Wise Consulting, my daughter went from waking every 1.5-2 hours in the night, taking unpredictable naps during the day, and needing to be patted or nursed to sleep. Kelley was there every step of the way! She was amazing with quick responses to any questions I had and it was very reassuring to have the support of someone who truly knew the ins and outs of getting a baby to sleep well. I never had to second-guess anything, and that gave me so much confidence going forward with our sleep plan. After working with Kelley for a few weeks, my daughter did a complete 180. She is now able to sleep through the night consistently and take incredible naps! On top of that, my daughter is able to put herself to sleep. All of her sleep problems were corrected so quickly and we were sent off with a wonderful follow up plan. I am so incredibly grateful to Kelley for giving my daughter the gift of sleep!”
“My husband and I can not adequately express how thankful we are for Kelley and her expertise!! Prior to our time with Kelley, our 8 1/2 month old was reliant on being rocked to sleep for both nap time and bedtime, he was not napping consistently or enough during the day, he struggled with self soothing and he was waking up anywhere from 2-5 times each night. While we initially went back-and-forth deciding whether or not we should hire a sleep consultant, I can say wholeheartedly that I AM SO HAPPY WE DID! In just 2 weeks, our son has learned amazing sleep skills, is able to self soothe to sleep, is napping two times a day totaling 3-3.5 hours, is SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT for 10-11.5 hours, and is more rested in the morning! In addition to all of the wonderful skills he has learned, my husband and I are able to spend more quality time together, we are sleeping through the night and feeling well rested in the mornings! I would highly recommend Kelley to any parent(s) who may be struggling with their little one sleeping at night, she provided a sleep plan that was obtainable for our family, she supported our decisions and was very encouraging when we needed it! She has been wonderful for our family and I am so very happy that we had the chance to work with her! My advice to any parent(s) who are entertaining the idea of hiring a sleep consultant is “Do not wait any longer, call and find a plan that works for you and your family! You will not regret it!”
“Working with Kelley has been a lifesaver!!! When we contacted her, our 4 month old twins had to be rocked to sleep with a bottle and were sleeping in rock-n-plays. They were waking up multiple times a night and were unpredictable to say the least! We knew we had to have some help and a plan to get them sleeping better and I am so glad we made this investment. Our bigger twin slept 11 hours through the night in his crib without being swaddled on the third night of our time with Kelley! We were completely amazed! By the end of the three weeks, they were both sleeping through the night pretty consistently and were taking mostly consolidated naps on a schedule. We now look forward to our bedtime routine with them rather than it being such a chore to get them to sleep. It is so nice to have a predictable schedule during the day and night and they are such happy, rested babies!!! I would recommend Kelley to anyone!!!”
“Katie Pitts is our hero! I felt that I was well versed in sleep training after training our daughter 3 years ago, but having a toddler and newborn was weighing on us, our whole house was sleep deprived, and I needed help. We started with Katie when my son was 3.5 months old and by the second night he was sleeping through the night without a swaddle or pacifier. He has continued to do so and his naps are lengthening just as Katie said they would. He wakes up well rested and we all are happier since we are getting sleep. Katie was incredibly easy to work with and is extremely knowledgeable. Every tip that she gave us worked. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking for sleep! Don’t wait, call her now!”
“We are writing to express our gratitude to Kelley for the work you’ve done with our family. We went from being pregnant with two toddlers who required HOURS to go to sleep, woke 2-8 times during the night and napped no more than 30 min during the day to having a newborn and two toddlers who go to sleep on their own, sleeping through the night 11.5-12 hours AND nap a minimum of an hour each day! All this, because of your efforts with our family! You took our concerns and our parenting goals and melded them into a workable plan specific to OUR needs, goals and wishes as a family.
We can’t thank you enough! We are all more rested and better prepared to take on our daily routine as well as adjust to being a family of five. You’ve given us our lives back and we can’t thank you enough!! We would VERY HIGHLY recommend your services to EVERYONE we know. Thank you for listening to us and working toward a sleep solution that was right for our family and parenting beliefs. You are our hero!”
“Working with Katie and Sleep Wise Consulting has given my husband and me confidence. She can help you make sense of a routine and give you predictability in your days and nights. When that happens, everyone in the family is happy! Thanks, Katie!”
“Our family cannot thank you enough for the guidance and support you have given us!! When we called you, we were absolutely hopeless. After almost 2 years of not sleeping, we were on the verge of giving up! We honestly thought we had tried everything and that our toddler would never sleep. It has now been 4 weeks since we began working with you and he is now sleeping 11 hours a night with a two hour nap each day and very minimal fuss!!! We can tell such a dramatic difference in his demeanor now that he is rested. He is such a happy little boy (and that makes for a happy momma)!!! He is also making great improvements in his social and verbal development. Overall, working with you has been life changing!! I will recommend you to anyone that will listen because I truly believe you are so gifted!!! Thank you, Katie and God Bless you and your family!!!!”
“Dana was a tremendous resource in helping us get our 9 month twins on a sleep schedule. My husband and I were skeptical as we had tried several times on our own, and had been unsuccessful. Dana provided us with a simple, reasonable plan and our babies slept through the night (12 hours) on night 1 (in the same nursery)! After two weeks’ time, not only were they still sleeping through the night, they were taking 2 naps during the day. It requires consistency and good communication, and Dana is there every step of the way to ensure you succeed. I highly recommend working with her; she is very thorough and approaches all challenges with great enthusiasm. We are very pleased to see our babies finally getting sufficient rest, and are thrilled to be getting more sleep ourselves (finally!).”
“Sleep Wise Consulting saved our family’s sanity! Many friends recommended Babywise so I read the book… twice! But despite all my preparation and attention to the principles and schedule, it just wasn’t clicking for my son. When he was about 4.5 months, we reached out to Katie Pitts in desperation and got started on a plan that was specific to his needs. It was a pretty intense couple of weeks, but the guesswork and self doubting were taken out thanks to the clear plan and coaching provided. it is really amazing the transformation that has occurred in his sleep skills and affect. He is now 9 months and has been a sleep rock star since!”
“I originally hired Katie to help me with my daughter’s early morning wakings. I scheduled my free 15 minute call with her, and within the first few minutes, I immediately felt at ease talking with Katie. She collected some information regarding my issues, and provided me with some suggestions to try. Within two nights of implementing these suggestions, my daughter’s early wakings stopped. A couple months later, when I was experiencing difficulties with naps, there was no question I would hire Katie to help me make the transition from two to one nap. With her daily support, I was able to navigate things that came up, as well as have answers to any questions that arose throughout the process. Katie was patient, thorough, and reassuring every step of the way. I would definitely recommend working with Katie, and I would not hesitate to use her again if need be.”
“Our 22-month old son needed to be rocked to sleep at nap and night-time and would still wake an average of 2-4 times overnight and need to be rocked back to sleep each time he woke up. Over time, it had taken its toll on us as parents and even our marriage – as we were exhausted, irritated and frustrated. We were afraid to leave our son with a sitter to have a date night as we were embarrassed at the routine and length of time it would take to get our son to sleep. We began to work with Katie and our son can now fall asleep on his own in his crib and consistently sleeps straight through the night until 6:30 in the morning. Other family members and our nanny can put him down to sleep and our son knows it is bedtime and he has to fall asleep like big boy! As a family, we have come to cherish our time together during the day and understand the important role that sleep plays in our daily lives and how we function. Using Sleep Wise Consulting was one of the best investments we made and we are thankful for Katie’s support and the tools she gave us to help us teach our son how to sleep. “
“Our sweet baby struggled with sleep for weeks, that turned into months, and she was waking up many times during the night. Over the course of our time working with Katie, we stuck to her plan, and it works! The first night we saw major improvement! And it kept getting better! Our baby is now sleeping 12 hours at night, taking good naps, and has great independent sleep skills. We were given amazing support and encouragement and our daughter has been blessed with the gift of sleep!!”
“This has been so wonderful. Not only are my husband and I getting our free time back but Logan’s attitude during the day has done a complete 180. He is so happy and silly again and minds so much better than when he was tired all the time. His most recent school report card also did not have any conduct issues. We cannot thank you enough!”
“Katie was a LIFESAVER. After 15 months of no sleep or on-again, off-again sleep, my husband and I reached our breaking point. Within two days of working with Katie, we started seeing an immediate difference in our son’s sleep patterns, and by night 4, he began sleeping from 7pm until 7am without any wake-ups. She was incredibly thorough with our sleep plan, follow-up calls and emails, guiding us through each step and offering invaluable support. I especially appreciated the compassionate approach toward changing our son’s sleep “crutches” and how she was there with us every step of the way (even though we live far away). My only regret is that we didn’t start working with her sooner. :)”
“I haven’t felt this well rested in months. But the most important thing is how proud our son is. He is undertaking this during a stressful time with the move and all. Thank you so much!”
“I would highly recommend Jeannine as a sleep consultant for anyone with a little one who struggles with sleep. My son had such a hard time sleeping I honestly never thought I would see the day he would sleep through the night let alone put himself to sleep! After a year of struggling and trying things on my own, I came to Jeannine and I’m so happy I did! Jeannine is full of knowledge and what I loved the most is I never felt alone. If something wasn’t working or I wasn’t comfortable, she always came back to me with a plan B. I would have never been able to do this alone, I am so grateful for her! She was very easy to relate to and explained everything in a clear manner and we came up with a plan we were both comfortable with. I highly recommend Jeannine, she literally changed our lives. Life is so much more stress free, I have more time for myself and my husband but most importantly, my son is finally getting the sleep that he needs to grow and be a healthy toddler!”
“Working with Kelley has been an amazing experience and worth every penny spent! We were struggling with our 4.5 month old who was only taking 45 minute naps and waking up to 5 times at night. Working full time and also having a 3 year old made it so difficult to function on such little sleep! Kelley quickly came to our rescue by talking with us on the phone and developing a plan that would work for home and daycare. We followed the plan she created for us and within days we were seeing a change in his sleeping patterns and habits. As problems would arise Kelley became a great resource and coached us through it. Our son is now happily sleeping 10-11 hours at night and taking full naps during the day. He is a well rested and happy little boy all thanks to the help and support of Kelley!”
“Working with Katie was awesome! Our family is so much happier, well rested, and we can be the best parents to our baby and toddler now that everyone is getting the sleep they need! I had done a lot of research on different methods of sleep training, but would not have had this success without the help of Katie. If you are thinking of hiring her, it’s probably because you need to! And trust me, it’ll be the best money you’ve ever spent…EVER!!!”
“Kelley – Thank you for helping our family regain our sanity! With a full night of uninterrupted sleep, each one of us is happier during the day. We have enjoyed spending quality time with each other and as parents, feel like we got 12 hours back each night. Life is good again!”
“Our 3 year old used to be a good sleeper – or so we thought. When we moved him from his toddler bed into a full sized bed, he started having difficulty sleeping through the night. Soon, I found myself waiting for him to fall asleep every night and then sleeping in his bed. He has always been a stubborn boy, so we were a little unsure when it came to sleep training.
Dana created a clear and concise plan. At any point we were frustrated or concerned, she was there to answer any questions we had, put our minds at ease and reassure us that we were making progress. She even helped us set up a plan for holiday travel. I am so happy to say that no only is our son falling asleep on his own, remaining in bed all night and not getting up until it’s “time” – he is also more well rested and happier. That makes for a happier mom! Dana was extremely professional, patient and knowledgeable. I only wish we had done this sooner! “
“My 3 year old son was a great sleeper until we moved into a new house. He started delaying bedtime, waking up and coming into our bed and being ready to start the day at 5am. I knew the transition was hard for him but after 3 months of “waiting it out” we knew we needed more help! Dana was so helpful and supportive in creating a plan for our family that worked. He’s now putting himself to sleep and sleeping through the entire night! We’ve even seen a great improvement in his behavior during the day. We cannot thank Dana enough for helping us to create more peaceful nights in our new house!”
“I knew everything about infant sleep! Or so I thought. Although my first child was an excellent sleeper from the time she was born, my second child suddenly started having nap time trouble the day after he turned one-year old. After three long weeks of NO naps, I finally admitted that perhaps I couldn’t solve this problem on my own. I hesitantly started working with Jeannine at Sleep Wise Consulting, and flat-out told her that I thought I was already doing everything right, and that I didn’t see how a new sleep plan would work for my little guy. I WAS SO WRONG! With what seemed like just a few small, strategic changes to our already existing routine, Jeannine got my son napping again the very first day that I implemented the new plan. The first day! I was in shock. Since then, his naps have continued to get better. Not only is my baby his happy, sleeping self again, but my whole family is relieved to have our great routine back. I am so glad that Sleep Wise Consulting was there to help when I needed them, and I only wish I hadn’t waited three weeks to reach out to them! Working with Jeannine was more than worth it, and I highly recommend her and Sleep Wise Consulting to anyone who wants to help their child get the sleep they need. Don’t wait another minute!”
“Working with Katie was instrumental in positively changing my babies sleep habits. We were in a place with Harper where she required rocking and a bottle before bed, she wouldn’t sleep through the night and she was not taking consistent or appropriate naps. After just one night we saw results, like better naps and sleeping though the night. A couple days after that Harper was going to sleep independently. Honestly, I was skeptical that we’d see significant and immediate results, but I was wrong and am so glad we reached out to Katie!”
“We had tried everything before contacting Katie to help us with our then 10 month old daughter who was definitely not sleeping through the night. She was waking 4-7 times a night and had an unpredictable nap schedule that left her tired and irritable daily. I had read all the books, talked to everyone I knew and tried everything recommended, and it seemed that her sleep problems were getting worse and worse.
Once we began working with Katie her sleep started to improve greatly and her mood when awake was wonderful. Katie taught us not only what to do, but why, which was so helpful! Our daughter is now on a sleep schedule that ensures she is getting the sleep she needs. She has learned how to get herself to sleep for naps without us having to rock her to sleep and most importantly how to help herself back to sleep when she wakes during the night without us having to get up 4-7 times a night to help her. Our home is getting a lot more sleep now and we are so grateful to Katie for that!”
“Katie saved my sanity and probably daycare’s sanity as well.I was skeptical that it would work because I thought we had tried everything but by night four our son was sleeping through the night and going down for his naps with little to no crying and all this without his paci! He and mom are now so much more happy during the day. I can’t thank Katie enough for helping our family. I recommend her to everyone I can!”
“Katie has given me so much peace of mind over the past year. My little guy is just about 15 months old and I just couldn’t figure out how to get him sleeping well for his two naps. He was cranky and so tired and I knew I needed help. What she suggested I totally wouldn’t have done on my own in regards to awake time and once we did it, he was a totally different baby-happy and fun and well rested. People comment all the time about what a great baby he is, my answer is always “it’s because he isn’t tired!” Which is all thanks to Katie. He kept his two naps for a realllllyyyyy long time-I’m super lucky, and now she’s helping me through the dreaded transition to one nap. I had sever post partem depression when I had my baby and I just did not have the emotional and mental capacities to navigate a lot of these waters without her support. I’m so glad I found her.”
“When I called Katie, my son was taking 3 to 4 cat naps throughout the day, lasting about 40 minutes each. He couldn’t connect his sleep cycles. Because of this, he would typically wake up crying and I would spend the majority of his awake time dealing with a fussy baby. At night, my son was co-sleeping because I was exhausted from getting up multiple times throughout the night to lull/rock him back to sleep and put his pacifier back in his mouth. So I gave up and put him in our bed and would make his nighttime bottles in bed and shove a pacifier in his mouth to get him to go back to sleep.
After Katie’s sleep training, my son takes 2 solid naps, each between an hour and an hour and a half. That’s not even the best part. At night, he sleeps 12 straight hours, without wakings…in his own crib…in his own room!! Complete transformation. I know some parent’s road to a sleep trained baby is different. Some easier. Some more difficult. But the end result is very similar – a well-rested baby. Katie’s 100% success rate definitely stayed put after our training. With all this sleep my son’s getting, the best part is his awake time – no fussiness. Just a happy, jolly baby.
If you are in a similar situation, I HIGHLY recommend giving Katie a call. She knows her stuff. She must have a crystal ball because whatever she said would happen, happened. Even my husband made a comment about that. I remember making a comment to her before we began the process saying I don’t see how my baby will sleep on his own. I am thrilled that she proved me wrong. Katie provides great support and confidence to get you through the training so that you and your baby could be more rested, happy people :)”
“After reading a few books, scouring the Internet and joining a Facebook sleep group, I thought I knew everything necessary to start nap training my twins. After two days of screaming babies who barely napped, I was ready to give up. This is when Katie stepped in. With just a few emails back and forth, I had a new game plan and was ready to try again. Now a week later, I have two happy babies who are napping more consistently and sleeping even longer at night! I can’t thank Katie enough!”
“Katie has helped us so much with our daughter and her sleeping schedule/routine! She used to only nap for 15minutes at a time if at all. Now she takes about 6 naps a day almost always lasting over an hour and she is sleeping in her crib! She is able to put herself to sleep after only 2 weeks of working with Katie and she is now only 8 weeks old. Thank you Katie for your help and support!”
“When we first heard about Katie and after talking to her it seemed too good to be true that our 17 month old might actually sleep in her own bed through the night, BUT it really did happen and SO very fast!!! We are ecstatic with the sleep we’re all getting now and wish we had called Katie sooner. It’s wonderful to see our daughter getting up to 13 hours of solid sleep each night and wake well rested and happy. It’s done wonderful things for our family! If you’re on the fence about contacting Katie, I will tell you from experience that it’s worth every penny, you will be so glad you did it.”
“Sleep had become a distant memory in our household prior to Katie. We had waited nine months for our son Henry to sleep through the night. The longer we waited the worse his sleep got. We were all exhausted, irritable, and ready for a change. That’s when we contacted Katie, our Sleep Savior. From the moment we talked, we knew we were in good hands. She created a detailed sleep plan for Henry and reassured us that he would be sleeping through the night in a matter of days. Katie was right and we were so grateful. We couldn’t have done it without her. Our only wish was that we would have contacted her sooner! If you’re also finding sleep a distant memory, do not hesitate to contact Katie. You will be so glad that you did!”
“If you’re on the fence about hiring Katie to help your child and family with sleep issues, hesitate no more! Katie has been such a blessing to our family and she helped us build a comprehensive approach to get our 5-month old son to sleep through the night and learn key self-soothing techniques (for both nighttime sleep and naps). My husband and I are no longer irritable and complete zombies through the night, but are getting significantly more uninterrupted sleep — a win for all three of us! We are grateful for Katie’s expert guidance, support, constant encouragement, and her ability to answer all of our questions throughout the entire process. She is passionate about helping children get the sleep they need to be well-rested, healthy and happy. We are reaping the benefits — it was worth every penny :)”
“After months of no one getting a full night of sleep, we finally broke down and contacted Katie. Since then our life has changed. He’s sleeping a full 11-12 hours a night, with no middle of the night wakeups. When he wakes he’s happy, smiling and ready to take on the day. Even with reflux, he’s the happiest he’s ever been and so are my husband and I. Katie gave us advice and the tools that we never would have figured out on our own to be quite honest, and we would still be walking irritable zombies had we not taken this step. People who say babies don’t sleep through the night are wrong, and we are proving it, thanks to Katie! Our 5.5 month old is sleeping every night, giving us the alone time my husband and I need, and giving him the rest he needs to grow up healthy, smart and strong. Thank you so much Katie for working with us and changing our lives!!!”
“My wife and I would highly recommend working with Katie for your baby’s sleep needs. Katie came highly recommended to us, and she did not disappoint. Calvin went from twice-nightly wake ups to sleeping through the night within three days. He was hard to get to sleep at nap time, and his naps were erratic. Now he sleeps on schedule and for long, solid blocks. The difference it has made in our lives has been huge. Not only do we sleep better, but Calvin is much better rested. We wanted to sleep train for our own good, but it wound up really being our son who benefited most of all. Katie was kind, willing, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone who is having trouble with a baby that sleeps poorly.”
“Katie is truly a lifesaver to our family! My son, who is almost 3, is falling asleep on his own and sleeping in his own bed the entire night! Before Katie, his naps were maybe 45 minutes, I would have to lay with him until he fell asleep for naps and bedtime, and he would wake a couple of times each night where he would either come in our bed to sleep or I would sleep in his bed. We were all cranky and tired. My husband and I were at a loss especially since he was almost 3. A friend referred me to Katie after she had used her. After talking with Katie I was immediately ready to get started. After going over Katie’s plan for our son, I knew it was going to work and help him get the sleep he finally needed. Katie gave us the confidence to get through the tough times. Her coaching and support were so encouraging. Not only is our son sleeping through the night, but we have seen such a difference in his behavior. We wish we had found Katie sooner. We are so thankful for all of her help along this journey.”
“To my husband and I, Katie Pitts is a life saver. Before we met her we were having a lot of trouble getting our son to sleep, staying asleep, and only wanting to sleep in our bed. We were not really sleeping and truly feeling hopeless on what to do to change our situation. I came across Katie’s website and instantly felt like there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. Once I met her I knew that her plan was going to work. She put my mind at ease by making sure that I knew that we were not alone in this sleep struggle. Her guidance and support were invaluable. We now have a 12 month old son who is sleeping through the night in his own bed without waking up! He is happy all the time and truly thriving now that he is getting the sleep that he needs. I do not know what we would have done without her. I recommend her to ANYONE who is having this same problem with complete confidence that she can help.”
“We cannot thank Katie enough for all of her help! As first time parents, Katie devised and helped us implement a plan to teach our little girl wonderful sleep skills. It was a struggle since our little girl was resistant to change but Katie stuck with us and coached us through the tough times. Katie’s support and guidance was invaluable. She helped us achieve our goals and our daughter has begun to sleep through the night!”
“For 18 months, my husband and I went with minimal sleep and kept telling ourselves that our son would “grow out of it” and starting sleeping all night. Instead it got worse…to the point that we would have to rock him to sleep for at least 20 minutes for him to wake up screaming after only 1 hour in his crib. Then we would bring him into our bed, and all night he would toss and turn keeping us up. We had just about lost hope and our sanity until we met Katie. She was very kind, patient, positive, and knowledgeable. She helped us every step of the way and even went above and beyond with extra support when our little smart/stubborn guy gave us a run for our money. But Katie figured out the best plan to teach us (and our entire family) how to help him learn to put himself to sleep and stay asleep in his crib. It has been almost a month now, and we are still amazed at how well he sleeps… we still feel like it’s a dream. Thank you so much Katie!!!!”
“Our son Trey was 4 weeks old when my husband and I decided to contact Katie. We had implemented great sleep routines with his older sister, but this little guy was proving to be much more of a challenge! He would only sleep when being held, and putting him down in a swing or crib would usually wake him, forcing us to start the whole process over again….At one month old, we didn’t feel comfortable letting him cry for long periods of time, but we also knew we couldn’t go on with the screaming overnight and dreading every time he needed to go down for a nap, especially with a toddler in the house that needed our attention too. He needed sleep, and so did we. With Katie’s guidance, we were able to help Trey learn to put himself to sleep in such a quick time frame. He was putting himself to sleep for naps and bedtime within a week, and becoming a much more content baby because he was getting such good rest. It’s been two months since we’ve had Katie’s help and Trey is still sleeping great! 12-13 hours overnight and three naps during the day…It gives us great peace of mind to know he’s getting the rest he needs, and he is able to accomplish that on his own. Our grumpy little newborn is now a happy well rested baby and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Thank you Katie!”
“The professionalism and effectiveness you will experience with Katie is out of this world. Our 3 month old baby boy was a HUGE sleep fighter. My husband and I were on the fence about using a sleep consultant because we thought “we had it figured out” based on books and research we did on our own, but after 3 long months of sleepless nights and lots of crying, from both myself and our son, we knew we had to do something before I went back to work. Within days of implementing Katie’s plan we had stopped all sleep props and saw a drastic improvement in naps and night sleep. She not only helped us to teach our son how to self-soothe and sleep well but also educated my husband and I enough about pediatric sleep so we may continue her plan beyond our time with her. Our baby boy now sleeps 11-12 hours at night and naps like a champ. I am constantly getting compliments from my caregivers about how our son is “a dream” and the “easiest baby” they have ever watched. My husband and I are just blown away by the results!”
“A big huge thank you from our whole family for your guidance, support & patience as we embarked on sleep training. We are so appreciative of all you have done to help us getting Matilda sleeping though the night. Without a doubt we are finishing our time with you with a better understanding of babies sleep habits, needs & of course a baby who sleep through the night. I will be sending all my Mommy friends your way who need your help!”
“We were blessed to have been gifted a package with Katie, and we so desperately needed it! The night before we started with her had been one of the worst… 3 hours of holding and rocking our 3 month old while he just wailed and wailed trying to go to sleep! I knew that no matter what “sleep training” entailed, it couldn’t possibly be worse than what we were already going through. Imagine my surprise when our first night on our new plan was less than half the crying we had endured doing things our own way… and that night was supposed to be the toughest! Things got progressively better with nighttime sleep and he now goes to bed BY HIMSELF in his crib and sleeps about 11 hours overnight…. Our whole family is better rested now, and we can’t thank Katie (or our very generous gift-giver) enough!”
“Jackson has far exceeded my expectations! I suspected it was the sleep props that were preventing him from sleeping well, but I just had no idea how to break it. Your plan has worked beautifully, so thank you for your help! Jackson seems so much happier too. It’s nice to have my happy, easy-going baby back!”
“Thank you so much! We have had the best experience with you! We are so proud of where Henry is in his sleep journey and we have you to thank for it! We wish you the best of luck and will be referring you to everyone we know! :)”
“When we first sought Katie’s help, our daughter’s sleep wasn’t “bad”. Tell most parents that your 6 week old is sleeping 7 hours a night and they’d be happy to switch places with you. However, I was a mess! I was spending hours on the Internet researching blogs on sleep and devouring books only to end up more confused and always feeling like I was failing. Hiring Katie was the best thing we could have done for me and our little girl. Finally, I could seek one professional’s opinion and rest! At first I was skeptical but after our nighttime sleep extended to 12 hours, I was up for anything the “sleep lady” would have us do! Katie’s care and concern are genuine and her client service is top of the line. I was so pleased with our results, I purchased a package for a friend who is also a very, very happy customer.”
“Katie is a godsend! Our baby was getting up every 2 hours and was sleeping in the bed with us. My husband and I were getting ready to return back to our teaching jobs and were extremely exhausted. I honestly didn’t think I could go back to work. My good friend referred me to Katie. All I can say is, “THANK GOD!” Mikey is now sleeping most nights from 6:30 pm-5:30-6:00 am. If you are having any issues with sleep issues, please contact Katie. Don’t hesitate or double guess if it is worth the money. I will tell you, it is! Katie is very professional, but also very motherly. Thank you Katie for all the sleep you have given our family and Mikey!”
“We contacted Katie when our daughter was 10 weeks old. Every night we were struggling to get her to bed at a decent hour and failing. She would start fussing in the early evening and wouldn’t go to sleep — and stay asleep — until sometime between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m. I was at my wits’ end and desperate for help. My pediatrician and lactation consultant reassured me that nothing was wrong and that all babies have a “witching hour,” but I sensed that there was more going on. Since implementing Katie’s plan, our daughter has been going to bed every night around 7 p.m. and has been sleeping 11-13 hours. I am thrilled to have my evenings back to relax and spend time with my husband. I have to add that it is so wonderful to be able to put her down for a nap in her crib and see her put herself to sleep with minimal to no fussing. It’s really a gift. Now instead of spending an eternity patting/shushing/walking/rocking her to sleep, I get to spend that time doing other things with my husband or son. I am so glad I contacted Katie; she has taught me so much and has been so encouraging and helpful. She’s given me my sanity, and my happy baby, back!”
“Thanks for being here for me. Having your accountability and support helps probably more than you know. Since I’m taking this task on alone at night because my husband works second shift, I’ve felt like you are right besides me cheering me on.”
“I just want to say what a lifesaver Katie has been! We started sleep training by ourselves at 8 weeks but had little success. He was still sleeping in my room and was only able to fall asleep in my arms while being rocked. It became exhausting! With Katie’s help, he now sleeps 11-12 hours at night in his own crib! He takes all naps in his crib as well. One of the things I really liked about Katie is that she did not expect me to let my son cry it out. She used gentle methods that helped him learn how to self-soothe himself to sleep. Since starting, RJ is a much happier and relaxed baby! Katie’s method and schedule I recommend to any family that is struggling with day and night sleep. She really cares about my son’s sleep success as much as I do. It is so rewarding to watch RJ peacefully fall asleep on his own. I would not have been able to help RJ achieve this without her help!”
Thank you so much Katie! Yesterday my daughter went to bed the easiest ever and with me in the room for the first time. Her night wakes are very minimal and we haven’t had to go in the room since the second night! It’s been life changing and I can’t thank you enough. I feel like I have life balance back and I enjoy my time with her so much more!
“Wow! What a difference three nights can make with the correct sleep preparation. I didn’t realize how tired I was until our son slept through the night for the first time. I remember waking up in a panic thinking that something was wrong with him, because I woke up, not to crying, but to silence. The program is still working today and I’m very thankful my wife and I now have this education in our arsenal. I can personally attest that getting up and going to work is much easier than it had been when our son first came home. Thank you Katie for the life changing program!”
