My husband and I had tried EVERYTHING to get our suddenly “scared of everything” 2-year-old to continue sleeping in her own crib. Up until that point, she had always been such a great sleeper and now she was in hysterics at naptime and bedtime every day. After several long conversations where Colleen patiently listened to all of our problems, she provided us with a sleep plan that we were all comfortable with. My daughter is especially stubborn, so it took some time. But Colleen was there with guidance, support, and advice throughout. Last night, my daughter slept the whole night in her own crib with no crying!
Colleen SAVED me! I didn’t know how to get out of a co-sleeping arrangement with my baby. She laid out a very do-able plan for me to move him out of my bed and into his own room and his own crib. His transition has been going well and she has been so supportive throughout our transition. She checked in with me multiple times and helped me with nap issues by making suggestions on how we can continue to improve on them. I’ve been having MUCH better nights and days now that I have my baby on a schedule and I know we’re both sleeping better overall.
Dear Colleen, Thank you! Thank you! My family and I can’t thank you enough for all your advice and words of encouragement at such a stressful time in our lives when it came to getting our little girl to sleep through the night and nap during the day. With your expertise and prompt email response (within minutes), when I needed to know what to do right then and their in that moment, you were there with me. It only took about 8 days/nights of getting on track and in a routine of sleeping well. Now at almost a year old the whole family is happy, healthy and well rested.
Ok, so wow. I can’t believe that things have gotten better so quickly. She now seems to know what is coming when we start her routine. I guess I thought because she was so young she wouldn’t get it, but she does! You have truly been a Godsend.
Colleen’s daily support and check ins helped so much, answering all of my questions and talking me through each step of training. We saw results in our baby’s sleep in the first three days! My 5 month old son could not put himself to sleep or stay asleep, he only took a few half hour naps through out the day, if any, and at night he would wake every half hour! What’s worse is after each waking, I had to rock/nurse/console for 30-40 minutes to get him to sleep again!! I was so exhausted my hair was literally falling out in patches, I couldn’t get out of the house, I felt like I could barely function. Now we have a great routine that he understands, I get the sleep I need, we can go outside for errands and events without the fuss, and best of all—my baby is so alive and energetic, he smiles more, he plays more, his curiosity has grown three fold!
At seven months old, our baby was still waking several times a night and not napping well during the day. We were exhausted and unsure of how to help him sleep on his own. Thankfully we found Colleen, she worked with us to create a daily schedule and plan to help him sleep. With Colleen’s knowledge, support, and guidance we were able to get our baby to sleep through the night! We are so appreciative for all her help!
