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… Read more
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
Thanks for helping us create a peaceful room and relaxing routine for our wonderful, sleepy little girl. With your support, the rest was cake!
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
Sleepy in Park Slope
When we reached out to Jillian, we were desperate. Our little guy was getting up every 45 minutes and we were losing sleep (and our minds). We knew we had to get a sleep plan together, but we had questions. We were reading so many conflicting reports that it was unclear how to get started. Above all else, Jillian gave us confidence and clarity. She helped us identify what was right for us and our son. She was a support throughout the entire process, cheering us on when needed and answering an… Read more
Jillian has made such a difference in our lives! Not only is she perfectly qualified to give customized advice regarding babies sleep, she’s also capable of bringing across her message in a gentle and understanding way. You can tell that she truly loves what she is doing, which makes it a pleasure to work with her. We started our son’s sleep training with Jillian when he turned 5 months old. We wanted to establish healthy sleep habits at an early age and it didn’t seem to be coming natural… Read more
I would like to send this email to send our sincere gratitude for your work with Brian and his sleep schedule. We of course see such a dramatic improvement and we owe it all to you. When I speak about you to our friends and family I always refer to you as the Baby Whisperer because in all honesty that’s exactly what you are. You were very much in tune and connected to Lil B from the moment your looked at one another. Please know we will forever be grateful for everything you have done and … Read more
Declan was always a happy little guy, except when he was tired! He was a good night sleeper, but I really had no idea how to get him down for naps. I knew they were so important for his development and overall happiness! The only way we could really get him to nap in the morning was by feeding and rocking him, which I really didn’t want to rely on. The afternoon nap was non existent, and he would just sleep on and off in the stroller throughout the afternoon. Getting him ready for bed was a m… 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
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
