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 finally in a deep sleep we would ATTEMPT to get her into her crib. It was 50/50 really on it working. It became too much for all of us. She was not getting the proper rest she needed and neither were we. So at 5 1/2 months it was time for sleep training. In came Jillian. We had a home consultation with her. We knew immediately that we had made the right decision. She was so supportive of not just our child’s needs but also of us as parents. We came up with a plan together as family as opposed to being told “this is the way it should be done”. She was very thorough and walked us through everything. Even giving us a timeline of when and how things should play out day by day. I would be lying if I said the first few nights weren’t really hard, they were. BUT – Jillian was there 100% for us and it made all the difference in the world. Her support and motivation got us through to the other side. And now Charlotte is going down in her crib for naps and for nighttime sleep. She fusses for about a half a second and then she’s sleeping. She is such a happy, rested baby now. My husband and I just shared a dinner together in our home, at our dinner table, without bouncing our little girl while trying to eat!! It was the first time in 5 1/2 months that we have been able to do that. Yay!!! Thank you Jillian – You are an absolute godsend!
