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 is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
Shai was, much to our wonder and delight, a fantastic sleeper the first 6 months of his life, so we thought we were in the clear and just magically got lucky. But as he got older and more aware, he began getting up more during the night, and by the time he was 1 year old, we just started bringing him into bed with us once he cried out in the middle of the night. In theory (and sometimes in practice), it seemed like a win-win, as we loved snuggling with him, and he loved it as well, usually falli… 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
At 5 months, our son Luke was waking up 4-6 times a night – more than he did as a newborn and only taking short choppy naps. We fell into bad patterns, like using the pacifier, the swing, the carrier, the stroller, and bringing him to our bed. I didn’t know how to handle his sleep because my first son was naturally a great sleeper and formed his own schedule. Luke’s sleep was regressing and we needed help. We contacted Jillian who listened to our problems and took time to understand our si… 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
I met Jillian when my son was 3 months old. She became his full time nanny for the remainder of his first year. It was during this time that she was also completing her sleep training courses. We were the very lucky beneficiaries of all of her knowledge. Any new mom who is way too tired to read all the books, let alone implement the strategies knows what a treasure finding someone like her is. In addition to her being amazing with my son Gus, it was so incredible having her weigh in as his… Read more
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
Thanks for helping us create a peaceful room and relaxing routine for our wonderful, sleepy little girl. With your support, the rest was cake!
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
