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
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
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… Read more
Prior to Jillian’s help, Diego refused to sleep in his crib. We spent our nights co-sleeping or waking up several times a night to soothe an angry, tired baby back to sleep. He would usually only fall back to sleep if he was being nursed! After 2 failed attempts of sleep training on our own, we needed help. Jillian offered the guidance and support we needed to get through the daunting task of sleep training and we succeeded this time around! Diego now sleeps in his crib 11-12 hours at night wi… 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

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
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
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
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
We were having lots of trouble with our 7 month old daughter’s sleep habits. Naps were irregular and rarely longer than 25 minutes; plus she was still waking up several times a night. We were really losing our marbles when luckily we found Jillian! She was great at diagnosing the problem, creating a structured routine for us, and she provided tons of encouragement and email support while we implemented her recommendations. It sounds unbelievable, but within a couple weeks, our daughter was sle… Read more
