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
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 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
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
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
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
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
Being too close to the situation, not to mention tired, it was difficult for us to evaluate if what we were doing was helping or hindering our baby’s sleep. We were sort of’ following advice from books, but were confused, feeling that some of what we had read contradicted itself, or that perhaps we were misinterpreting it. We had also decided that we wanted to let our baby ‘cry it out’ and we needed an outside voice to support us. The steps Jillian had us go through showed us where 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
