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…

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. …
We called Jillian after our daughter Lilou turned six months and wasn’t sleeping on any sort of schedule. Nights were spent co-sleeping and naps were consistently 30 minute cat naps whenever we could lull her to sleep. Jillian very patiently walked us through changes that we had to make in order change our daughters sleeping habits. She dealt with our (very) frequent questions and stubbornness to change with friendliness and grace, explaining the reasons all along the way. She was an incredibl…
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…
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…
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…
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!

We had a wonderful experience with Jillian. We called her about our 4-year-old daughter who was waking early, and she completely solved the problem with one phone call! We instituted an earlier bedtime and followed her instructions about a special clock. Unfortunately, our 2-year-old son then began rising early, and again, after a few fits and starts, Jillian was able to solve his issues. We are now enjoying a very restful night, with both children happy to go to sleep and regularly waking up we…
Thanks for helping us create a peaceful room and relaxing routine for our wonderful, sleepy little girl. With your support, the rest was cake!
We are so thrilled we found Jillian! We never ever thought in our wildest dreams that Everett would take crib naps, but in under a week he was happily napping in the crib and sleeping over 11 hours at night! I know it doesn’t sound possible, but Jillian gave us a concrete plan and endless support to guide us through the tougher moments to keep us on track. She truly cared about our success and thanks to her we are all so much happier. Sleep really is everything!
