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
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
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
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
After a particularly ugly upper respiratory infection at around 16 months, our son Alex became a truly horrible nighttime sleeper. He would wake up at least once a night and be up for hours, completely unable to put himself back to sleep! After 5 months of broken sleep, we were all exhausted and, at my wits end, I reached out to Jillian. I knew from minute one of our first phone conversation that we were in good hands!! Jillian really took the time to listen and by the end of our call, I finally… 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
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

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
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
