You may know already that The Baby Sleep Site® has worked with tens of thousands of families worldwide on sleep – but sometimes, it’s nice to put actual faces to those numbers. It’s nice to hear about real families, just like yours, who struggled through the same sleep challenges you’re facing, and who found the sleep help they needed.
And that’s just what we’re doing this month! Each week throughout the month of August, we’ll be spotlighting a Baby Sleep Site® family – a family who, just like yours, was struggling through awful sleep deprivation and trying in vain to help their children sleep. You’ll learn why they contacted The Baby Sleep Site®, how our team walked them through the sleep coaching process, and what how they finally solved their children’s sleep challenges.
You’ll meet Julie, a mom who was desperate to stop co-sleeping but wanted a gentle solution. You’ll meet Ali, who had tried everything and was so skeptical that paid sleep help could actually work. You’ll meet Whitney, who – after 18 months of sleep deprivation – was so tired, she was afraid to get behind the wheel of a car for fear of having an accident. And you’ll meet Jennifer, who had worked with THREE other sleep consultants, none of whom actually helped her daughter sleep.
Keep reading to hear these moms’ amazing stories!
Meet Julie, and Hear Her Story
Readers, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Julie. A mom of two little girls, Julie lives in Maryland. She came to us for help when her second daughter was just a few months old. Here’s Julie’s story…
The Baby Sleep Site®: So, Julie, tell us a bit about your family’s sleep history.
Julie: I had many sleep struggles with my older daughter. In fact, when my older daughter was a baby, I had even hired a local sleep consultant to help with her sleep problems. It didn’t go well – the consultant’s approach was too harsh, and it went against my instincts as a parent.
I didn’t want to repeat any of that with my younger daughter. However, I did want to get my baby off on the right foot, and help her know how to self-soothe at a young age.
The Baby Sleep Site®: That’s understandable! So, is that why you reached out to The Baby Sleep Site® for help?
Julie: Yes. I initially discovered this site while looking at sleep articles online. I began getting the free newsletters and reading through the articles on the site. At that time, my second daughter was only 3 months old and was not a particularly difficult sleeper. But again, I really wanted to start her off on the right foot, after my experiences with my older daughter.
I wanted to sleep train, but I wanted to do something gentle that fit with my parenting style and with my baby’s temperament (which I now know is the key to implementing a successful sleep strategy!) And so, when my daughter was 4 months old, I decided to do a consultation with Nicole’s team of sleep consultants.
The Baby Sleep Site®: And we’re so glad you did! 🙂 Tell us – what were your first impressions of the consultation process?
Julie: Well, to begin with, I was surprised at how quickly I received my plan. I submitted my daughter’s sleep history, and within just a few days, I received a really detailed, 20-page plan from my sleep consultant for nights and naps.
At first, as I looked through the plan, I felt nervous to start. My baby had been co-sleeping, she needed to be swaddled in order to sleep, and she had to have a pacifier every night. I just wasn’t sure how we were going to wean her away from all of that!
But I did start – and I followed the plan to the letter, asking Amy for clarification along the way. I received several helpful e-mails from her in response, which I loved!
The Baby Sleep Site®: Good for you! And now that you’ve had some time to use that plan, and to reflect, tell us – did it work?
Julie: I’m happy to say that just a few nights after we started implementing our Personalized Sleep Plan® (nights with VERY minimal crying, I might add!), my little girl learned how to sleep all night in her crib, unswaddled, without a pacifier, and only needing to wake once or twice during the night for feedings! It was amazing!!
Amy was there every step of the way, of course, to support me through the process. She was so supportive and encouraging as we worked together – she never made me feel like I was bothering her with my questions.
Honestly, the Personalized Sleep Plan® has been nothing short of a miracle. It gave me the details I needed to be successful in sleep training, as well as the confidence I needed to actually carry it through and stay consistent. It was worth ever penny I spent on it — and truly, it’s a FRACTION of the cost of most other sleep consultants!
The Baby Sleep Site®: Woohoo! We love stories like yours, Julie. So, now that your consultation is done, and that your little girls are sleeping well, tell us – how would you summarize your experience with The Baby Sleep Site®?
Julie: The individualized attention, support, warmth, and understanding that I received during my consultation with The Baby Sleep Site was truly amazing. I cannot say enough good things about Nicole, her team, and her site. The access to all the free resources, as well as the affordable sleep packages, are truly a gift. I feel lucky to have found this site, because after just one short week of work, my whole family is now happy and rested! And there was so little crying involved – it was truly worth it. I have already recommended this site to several of my friends – and I’ll continue to do so!
The Baby Sleep Site®: Well, thanks, Julie. 🙂 Any last words for our readers?
Julie: The bottom line is this: Nicole’s team will do whatever it takes, and whatever you need, to ensure you get your child (or children) the rest they need. They gave me my sanity and my life back – and they can do it for you!
There you have it, readers, from the mouth of a real mom just like you: you CAN reclaim your sanity and your sleep! You CAN see real, meaningful sleep coaching results. You CAN sleep coach in a way that matches your parenting philosophy and your goals.
