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
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

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
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
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!
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
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

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
