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!
Jillian is a fantastic resource. She is pleasant, understanding, warm, reliable, and encouraging. I’d recommend her to you and everyone!
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…
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…
Jillian gave us the guidance and resources that we needed to find the right schedule for our baby. Prior to Jillian, our son was napping several times a day and only for about 30 minutes at a time. He woke up once or twice a night. Now, he takes two long naps every day and sleeps through the night. Sleep is possible. Jillian showed us the way. It is such a blessing to wake up each morning with a happy baby and to know that we both got a good night’s sleep!
Shai was, much to our wonder and delight, a fantastic sleeper the first 6 months of his life, so we thought we were in the clear and just magically got lucky. But as he got older and more aware, he began getting up more during the night, and by the time he was 1 year old, we just started bringing him into bed with us once he cried out in the middle of the night. In theory (and sometimes in practice), it seemed like a win-win, as we loved snuggling with him, and he loved it as well, usually falli…
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…
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 …
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…
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…
