Our world has been turned upside down since the coronavirus hit and families are adjusting to a brand new normal. But we are in this together and we will come out of it together. For now, there are a few things you can do that will help keep your fam...Read more
“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!”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!!”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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!”
“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!”
“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!”
