"I fantasized about being in a car accident, just so I could go to the hospital and get some sleep." Four-month-old Lucas went from 20-minute naps and waking every 1-2 hours at night to 90-minute naps and a 7-hour stretch at night. Verena says he's always laughing now and their time together is "magical."
"My husband and I were getting depressed from sleep deprivation. I told Abby, 'I don't know if we are candidates because we've already tried everything.'"
But now this mother of 3 children under 3 says, "their sleep changed like a light switch... Everyone goes to bed peacefully now and Mom and Dad are watching Netflix... Stop trying to read online and just hire a sleep coach to cut through the noise for you."
"We saw a gradual and then an extreme change in Lucas, becoming just a joy to be around."
Kent shares how his fussy 4-month-old was tranformed when they sleep trained.
"Georgia's sleep was erratic to non-existent."
The entire family was stressed and exhausted. Now Georgia is getting twice as much sleep as she was. Her parents have uninterrupted dinners, predictable time to work during the day, and more success in their careers. "We had to admit we couldn't do it alone."
Juniper's Bedtime Book shows how clear, consistent sleep boundaries can be an act of love, not discipline.
"There was nothing I could do to soothe her. I was at my wit's end." Single-mother-by-choice Erika was exhausted from working all day and then being up much of the night with her 15-month-old daughter. But now, Marlo waves bye-bye at bedtime, and they both get restful sleep through the night.
"Abby helped us remotely to develop and implement a plan. She was able to troubleshoot with us and develop creative solutions that matched our small living space and urban situation. The experience gave us confidence to implement structure around sleep and when the kids were sleeping better, they were better behaved as well. My toddler, a picky eater, actually began to eat better as well. Abby absolutely changed our lives for the better! Mariely, mom of two children, 15-months and 3.5 years.
"With Abby providing around-the-clock support via Zoom, our baby was transformed from a nightmare after dark to a 12-hour-a-night, 2-nap a day joy to be around. Hiring Abby was some of the best money we ever spent." Chuck, dad to Georgia, 6 months.
"Our once-great sleeper was waking frequently during the night and refusing to nap during the day in his crib. He was exhausted and so were we. After working with Abby, he is now sleeping twelve hours at night and napping 2 hours a day. We are so grateful and feel like we can think again! We highly recommend Abby to anyone who has a child in desperate need of rest like we did." Ronan, dad to Seamus, 15 months.
"Abby is amazing to work with! I have fraternal twins who never napped at the same time, and I was losing my mind. Abby helped us get in a routine with naps AND nighttime sleep, and it has totally transformed our lives and saved my sanity. She helped me work through my own hangups, was patient and kind, and helped me put my daughters on a schedule in a way that worked for our whole family." Kate, mom to Ashley and Amanda, 10 months
"It’s amazing how in just one week his sleep was completely transformed and the process was not too difficult to implement. I’m so thankful for the guidance! Our mornings are peaceful now because everyone is waking up well-rested. Sleep is truly a gift!" Susana, mom to Samuel, age 1 "Abby's advice and certainty gave me the confidence I needed to change things. I had the conviction that something needed to change but I didn't know where to start. If you need to fix something around sleep, even seemingly small issues, definitely go with Abby!" Liv, mother of Kaia and Liv, ages 8 months and 3 years.
"My 7-month-old always struggled with short naps. We were perpetually exhausted. With Abby’s help, naps and nighttime sleep have both lengthened out. Abby was reachable at nearly all hours and was so patient in answering my millions of questions. Our baby has gone from constant fussiness to complete happiness.” Allie, mom to Barrett, 7 months
"My 16-month-old daughter was waking up 2-3 times a night and required someone to be with her and petting her for up to 30-60 minutes each time to help her fall back asleep. It was exhausting for everyone in the family. Her daytime naps were also irregular and she could only fall asleep in motion in her stroller or in the car. We hired Abby to help us improve our sleep situation. Within less than a week, our daughter started sleeping through the night! It was a huge relief to us. Abby also provided emotional support when things were not going according to plan and provided immediate advice via text. She provides personalized plans based on the parents’ philosophy and unique needs of the child. We are still working on improving our naps- but we have confidence that it will improve with time. Highly recommend!" Kat, mom to Anna, 16 months
“Thank you so much for all this info. Working with you have been SO valuable to our family. Seriously, this was the best money we've spent in a long time. Getting our evenings back and sleeping through the night is giving us the sanity to keep going through this pandemic, and while we were thinking we'd have to send the kids back to daycare because we couldn't swing it, now we feel like this is sustainable. We're just in such a better place! Franny is so much happier during the day - we haven't had to use a "time-out" for her in the last two weeks since working with you. She is well-rested, and proud of herself, and I absolutely feel like our bond with her is better because all the bedtime stress has been alleviated. Drew and I were saying last night that a lot of what you taught us applies in all areas of parenting - and we're thinking more and more about consistency and limits across the board.” Emily, mom of Franny, age 4
