From day #1 Charlotte was not the baby that you could put down. She just cried. She loved being held ALL THE TIME. Which as first time parents we didn’t mind. Of course we loved holding our little girl. Then as she got older it became a little more difficult. She was heavier, she wanted to move around more but really couldn’t because we had her in our arms. We ended up bouncing her on a exercise ball nightly to get her to sleep. The process would sometimes take hours and then when she was f… Read more
We had a fantastic experience with Jillian. We came to her when Alba was 4 months because Alba’s day sleep was almost non-existent and at night the only way she would fall asleep was if she was in a milk coma. Getting her to sleep during the day was always a fight and if she did sleep, she would more often than not wake up a few minutes after putting her in her crib. Jillian educated us on sleep rhythms and by changing a few key things in our daily and nightly routines, Alba started falling as… Read more
Our daughter was a great sleeper until she was four months old. When I met Jillian, my six month old daughter Noa was waking up at 4:30 or 5 am every morning and would not go back to sleep unless she was held and rocked, would only nap for 30 minutes at a time, and would wake up whenever her pacifier fell out. My daughter was always tired and fussy. My entire family was exhausted and I could barely function at work. I tried reading books and looking on the Internet, but nothing seemed to hel… Read more
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
Jillian assisted me with my 11 month old daughter who was going through some major transitions and was already on a bad schedule. Thanks to Jillian’s excellent knowledge and consistent care over our situation, she got us onto the right plan for my daughter and helped restore peace to our home! She was extremely caring and understanding over our situation and always made me feel relieved to know what was actually happening with my daughter. I owe her a huge deal of thanks for saving us all f… Read more
I hesitated to contact a sleep consultant because our little guy was a good night sleeper and morning napper. I thought, ¨Maybe we don’t have a problem?” His afternoon naps were terrible though! I could not get him to sleep more than 35 minutes at a time and he always woke up unhappy. As a stay-at-home-mom this was very difficult for me because I never got a break and Adrián was obviously over tired. Both of our temperaments were suffering! Jillian’s knowledge and support helped immediat… Read more

Working with Jillian changed our lives. After a tough year of sleep deprivation, we are finally all resting peacefully at night. Jillian’s warm, encouraging and non-judgmental advice gave us the courage to try what we had been dreading. Our daughter went from waking a few times a night and needing to be nursed down each time to being able to go down drowsy and sleep for 12 or more hours a night, soothing herself along the way. We are all so much happier and rested. We recommend Jillian whole-h… Read more
Working with Jillian and Best Rest Baby completely changed our family’s sleep life! Declan, our three year old son, was frequently waking at night. He was unable to put himself back to sleep and it was making night time a nightmare! She helped us set up a sleep program and it was a complete success. She really listened to what was going on in our family and our needs and gave us a thorough plan, practical tools, and support to get our son sleeping through the night. I can happily report he now… Read more
Jillian is compassionate, positive and there are absolutely no judgements or shame from her! My little boy was only taking 3o minute naps. He was exhausted, cranky and miserable all day, everyday. The more we did to help him, the worse it got. After 15 minutes of getting him to sleep, he’d nap for 30 minutes and wake up crying and miserable. I’d try to play with him or get something accomplished, but he’d want to go back so sleep within an hour! REPEAT all day, every day. I was bare… Read more
From the day he was born, Luke was never a good sleeper. He wouldn’t sleep in a stroller, swing, sling or carrier and needed to be rocked, shushed and swaddled in a dark room, sometimes for nearly and hour. There were times when I had to let him fall asleep on me just to get a solid nap. So, we developed bad habits and found we needed to teach Luke to sleep on his own, or else we would have a sleepless toddler! At 6 1/2 months he was 20lbs, teething and crawling. We could no longer stand and … Read more
