We were having lots of trouble with our 7 month old daughter’s sleep habits. Naps were irregular and rarely longer than 25 minutes; plus she was still waking up several times a night. We were really losing our marbles when luckily we found Jillian! She was great at diagnosing the problem, creating a structured routine for us, and she provided tons of encouragement and email support while we implemented her recommendations. It sounds unbelievable, but within a couple weeks, our daughter was sle… Read more
Prior to Jillian’s help, Diego refused to sleep in his crib. We spent our nights co-sleeping or waking up several times a night to soothe an angry, tired baby back to sleep. He would usually only fall back to sleep if he was being nursed! After 2 failed attempts of sleep training on our own, we needed help. Jillian offered the guidance and support we needed to get through the daunting task of sleep training and we succeeded this time around! Diego now sleeps in his crib 11-12 hours at night wi… Read more

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
Jillian gave us the guidance and resources that we needed to find the right schedule for our baby. Prior to Jillian, our son was napping several times a day and only for about 30 minutes at a time. He woke up once or twice a night. Now, he takes two long naps every day and sleeps through the night. Sleep is possible. Jillian showed us the way. It is such a blessing to wake up each morning with a happy baby and to know that we both got a good night’s sleep!
Our six-month-old daughter Layla would wake 10 – 12 times every night when her pacifier would fall out of her mouth. We tried researching online but could not improve the situation. We then contacted Jillian who offered us several options for improving our daughter’s sleep. We choose the more aggressive plan and then Jillian guided us through the execution. While we had to make some difficult changes, Jillian was constantly in touch to support and guide us. Now two weeks later, Layla will sl… Read more
When Elliott was 8 months old he was still waking multiple times throughout the night and naps were a major struggle (and often only achieved in a stroller or car seat after failed attempts to get him to nap in his crib). He was only achieving sleep by being nursed and rocked into a deep sleep … and then carefully transferred into his crib while we held our breath and crossed our fingers! We knew this wasn’t sustainable for any of us, and that it was important for Elliott to learn how to s… 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
Michael is our third baby, and was actually a remarkably good sleeper until about 3 months. At that point he refused to nap for more than 20 minutes during the day, and he often woke once or twice during the night. I know many parents would be thrilled to have a baby who slept 6-8 hours in a row at night, but I was concerned about his lack of daytime sleep and I knew we could help him sleep longer if we established the right routine. Enter Jillian! Jillian listened closely as I explained o… Read more
Jillian has been our life-changing superhero, not once, but twice (so far!). We first reached out to her when our daughter, Lea, was just about to turn two. At that point none of us had slept through the night in two years! Lea required being held to sleep before our delicate nightly dance of trying to place her in her crib without waking her. Bedtime had turned into an hour-plus process and then she was waking several times during the night…every night. With two years of terrible sleep habits… 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
