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
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
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
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

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 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
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!
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… Read more
Sleep deprivation is a crazy thing, and as a new mom I was feeling the effects of it. It was making me depressed, impatient, and I really wasn’t enjoying motherhood. My son, Joey, was consistently overtired, which made him fussy, clingy, and miserable too. We were both a mess and we needed help! Since working with Jillian I can honestly say I am now a better mom and I feel like I have a completely different baby. As a first time mom, I had read every sleep-related baby book on the market! … Read more
