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

As first time parents we were sure we would never sleep train our baby. It just… wasn’t for us. But Adele continued to wake up every two hours at 10 months old, at which point we knew we had to change something to get both her and us better sleep. So, we contacted Jillian because we knew we didn’t have the nerves or the information to achieve this change alone. She was super attentive and empathetic throughout the learning process. Thanks to her support and advice Adele did learn how to pu… Read more

Jillian is AMAZING!!! My daughter, Paige, was the queen of the 20 minute nap, and she loved to start her day early (at 5 am!!!). With Jillian’s guidance, Paige now sleeps until 7 AM (and would probably even sleep longer if we didn’t wake her to start her day). She also takes two long (1 to 2 hour) naps a day. Jillian really took her time to listen to our concerns, and thoughtfully helped us find a solution to our sleep problems. Jillian helped me several times in my daughter’s first 6… Read more

After a particularly ugly upper respiratory infection at around 16 months, our son Alex became a truly horrible nighttime sleeper. He would wake up at least once a night and be up for hours, completely unable to put himself back to sleep! After 5 months of broken sleep, we were all exhausted and, at my wits end, I reached out to Jillian. I knew from minute one of our first phone conversation that we were in good hands!! Jillian really took the time to listen and by the end of our call, I finally… 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
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!

Jillian has truly changed all of our lives, very much for the better. Before we started working with her, our one-year-old daughter needed to be nursed to sleep and was waking multiple times per night, each time needing to be nursed to fall back asleep. We were all exhausted. Jillian really listened to our situation, and then she developed a gentle plan for us to help our daughter learn to fall asleep on her own and sleep through the night. We didn’t think that a full night of sleep was even p… Read more

When we first reached out to Jillian we were beyond sleep deprived. Everyone told us that parenthood would be exhausting and that we should get used to sleepless nights. But we never imagined we’d have a baby that would wake up every single hour during the night, and barely nap during the day. Our daughter spent huge portions of the night crying and we just did not know what to do! We tried feeding her, changing her diaper, rocking her to sleep – we tried everything and felt defeated. Th… Read more

We’ve wanted to write to you for the longest time to tell you what AMAZING success we had with our daughter sleeping as soon as we took your advice that one night. She is like a different child, she changed literally overnight – it’s quite unbelievable! When we say goodnight to her now she lies down, let’s us cover her with the blanket and doesn’t utter a peep after that. Always at 7pm – and she sleeps right through the night – she has not woken up once in the middle of the night. … 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
