“My husband and I were at the end of our rope. Our beautiful son Marcos had trouble staying asleep since birth, and after 8 grueling months of waking up as many as 15 times a night, we finally decided we couldn’t take it anymore. Then we found Nicole. She has been a godsend to our family, helping us with step-by-step advice that is well-researched, nurturing and proven effective. She gave us a method that worked for our family, and encouraged us to stay the course. Anytime we needed her help throughout the process, she was always right there. Our son is sleeping 12 hours a night now, every night, and takes 3 naps a day, each over an hour long. We cannot ever thank her enough for her professionalism, knowledge and compassion.

“Getting my 17-month old well rested and sleeping properly has not always been easy, but Nicole has been a huge help to me. She has been giving me advice since he was about 6 months old and I truly believe that it’s thanks to her that he has become a better sleeper. I have learned so much from Nicole, like the importance of a schedule, consistency, early bedtime, and so much more. Thank you, Nicole, for all your advice and dedication.”

I tried sleep training when my son was eight months old and it was horrible. I researched all of the sleep training methods, bought books on the subject and even attended a sleep training consultation, consisting of a method that sounded so terrible to me that I decided to not even try it. The way your e-book, Helping Your Child Sleep, a Step-By-Step Guide, is put together has made all the difference. The way you explained sleep training and your understanding and compassion put it all into perspective for me. I felt like I had finally found someone who actually understood what I was going through! I am finally in control of my life again and I feel like I can now be the mother to my child that he deserves. I am still working on the naps, although they are much better already. So I will remain a loyal reader to your site and refer all my mommy friends to you!”

“My son was a bad sleeper from day one. He never fell asleep on his own and woke up often. By 8 months, we were all exhausted. I didn’t want to blindly do the cry-it-out method without a game plan, which Nicole helped me coordinate. We made sure he wasn’t overtired and then helped him learn to fall asleep unassisted. Now, he is 3 and an excellent sleeper. He sleeps 10 to 11 hours a night and has a two-hour nap. He loves his room and going to sleep is a happy time now!”
“Nicole, you have been invaluable to me and have helped my son have healthy sleep habits. You really listen to the patterns and temperaments of the children and then give such great advice that goes along with different parenting styles (cry it out, check and console, co-sleep, etc). I am so lucky to have you parenting alongside me.

“Your website has been the most helpful resource I have come across so far. If I had come across it earlier, I would have saved myself so much time and money researching the topic “baby sleep.” Your information is clear, concise and straight to the point and I love that you include your own personal experience in it. I personally ended up using the cry-it-out approach, and so far there has only been one occasion where he has cried for more than 10 minutes. I think it is true that the crying hurts the mother more than the baby. When you realize that it is necessary and that you are providing your baby with the opportunity to learn an important life skill, it is very empowering. Thank you Nicole.”
