Sleepy In Brooklyn
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

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
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
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
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!
Our daughter was a great sleeper until she was four months old. When I met Jillian, my six month old daughter Noa was waking up at 4:30 or 5 am every morning and would not go back to sleep unless she was held and rocked, would only nap for 30 minutes at a time, and would wake up whenever her pacifier fell out. My daughter was always tired and fussy. My entire family was exhausted and I could barely function at work. I tried reading books and looking on the Internet, but nothing seemed to hel… Read more
From the day he was born, Luke was never a good sleeper. He wouldn’t sleep in a stroller, swing, sling or carrier and needed to be rocked, shushed and swaddled in a dark room, sometimes for nearly and hour. There were times when I had to let him fall asleep on me just to get a solid nap. So, we developed bad habits and found we needed to teach Luke to sleep on his own, or else we would have a sleepless toddler! At 6 1/2 months he was 20lbs, teething and crawling. We could no longer stand and … Read more
Jillian is a warm and nurturing caregiver who genuinely enjoys working with families and children. She knows how to listen with empathy to parents who are struggling with sleep issues. She has a very calming effect on our baby and I dub her “The Baby Whisperer of Brooklyn”.
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
