Up multiple times during the night replugging pacifier and experienced early morning wakings where Eloise would need to be rocked or bounced back to sleep.
Jen and Brock successfully taught Eloise how to replug the pacifer herself and followed a consistent routine with consistent responses to night wakings, resulting in Eloise sleeping through the night!
“I would recommend Elizabeth a million times over for how much she helped us! Our 9 month-old was not sleeping well, waking up many times a night, and still needed to be rocked or bounced to sleep every night. My husband and I were sleep deprived and grumpy, which made life with a baby much harder. Elizabeth helped us create a plan to teach Eloise how to put herself to sleep with minimal crying. I was skeptical, but massive improvement was seen after only a few days! And now a month later, we are all sleeping through the night again and are all much happier people!”
Praise from Nikki & Andy + Marlow (2 years)
Power struggle at bedtime, resulting in late evenings, night wakings and early mornings due to Marlow being overtired.
Developed consistent and predictable bedtime routine and Marlow now sees her bedroom as her place to rest and recharge for the next day of fun! Provided Nikki and Andy with the guidance to implement boundaries at bedtime and Marlow eased wonderfully into the new routine and has settled into sleeping through the night!
“We were at our wits end struggling to get our 2 year old daughter to bed at a “normal” time. She was over tired, crabby and staying awake sometimes until 10 pm. After meeting with Elizabeth and deciding upon a go forward strategy, our daughter is now in bed by 7:45 pm or earlier. It’s amazing! We love all our new-found free time! Our sleeping has improved as well! We are very grateful for Elizabeth’s services and advise any parent who’s been struggling with their child’s sleep to give her a call.”
Praise from Jenny & Jake + Lucy (5.5 months)
Waking up every 2 hours at night, needing to be fed to sleep, bounced (on an exercise ball) to sleep, or rocked to sleep. Naps were also a struggle and guidance was needed on schedule and sleeping at daycare.
Family’s goal was to teach Lucy how to self-soothe and remove the sleep crutches she was relying on to get back to sleep. We created a gentle plan that allowed Lucy to adjust easily and with Mom and Dad’s confidence and consistency, she began sleeping 12+ hours through the night!
“We can’t begin to thank you enough, Elizabeth! Lucy went from waking up every two hours throughout the night to now sleeping for 12 hours straight. Your plan works and we are so grateful. As new parents, you gave us the confidence and expertise we were desperately seeking in order to get Lucy’s (and our) sleep routine on track. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Praise from Julie & John + Audrina (7.5 months)
Faced multiple night wakings, needing to be fed to sleep and short daytime naps.
Created schedule and plan with family’s goal to help teach Audrina to self-soothe and sleep through the night and improve daytime naps. Consistent bedtime routine, removing intermittent reinforcement and empowering Mom & Dad during coaching process resulted in improved night sleep after 2 days and ultimately sleeping through the night! Naps have also greatly improved so Audrina is getting the rest she needs.
“Before starting sleep training, I was feeling hopeless and had lost all control of my daughters sleeping habits. Elizabeth put control back in our hands as parents and taught us how to provide a consistent approach to her sleep routine. As a family who travels frequently I worried we would not be able to provide the consistency the training promotes, but we’ve found these methods can be adopted anywhere and become a lifestyle. Looking back, I regret not seeking help sooner.”
Praise from Heather & Dwayne + Zara (11 months)
Faced multiple night wakings, needing to be fed to sleep, resorted to co-sleeping to get sporadic rest.
Created a simple bedtime routine to encourage Zara to self-soothe and sleep through the night. Brought the power back to Mom & Dad during coaching process, which resulted in improved night sleep after 2 days and ultimately sleeping through the night! The simple routine can be executed by any caregiver, making this approach accommodating and sustainable for busy working parents.
“Zara had been a good sleeper until we had a couple illnesses and changes in childcare, and it threw us for a loop! After a month and a half of struggling, we were so tired and felt awful that Zara wasn’t getting the rest she needed with frequent night disruptions. Elizabeth did a very thorough intake assessment, which considered temperament, activity level, parenting priorities, health history, and devised a customized plan for our family. We worked to transition away from our sleep-crutches of physical touch, milk, and co-sleeping as self-soothers and towards consistent, predictable, sustainable, and self-regulating tactics and routine that empowered Zara with skills she needed to get adequate rest. Elizabeth did an excellent job of incorporating things that were important to us as parents and our desire to avoid cry-it-out techniques so that we were comfortable with the support and skills we were able to teach our daughter. We cannot express enough gratitude for Elizabeth – our family is finally getting the rest we need so we can be active and patient with one another when we are awake!”
