We cannot begin to tell you how much Jessica helped our 11-month old twin girls. Although they were pretty good sleepers throughout the evening, they had a very inconsistent nap schedule. We had also become quite comfortable with bottling and rocking our babies to sleep in our living room each time they needed to go down and then swiftly transporting them into their cribs as quiet as possible, with the hopes of not waking the other baby up (I still have nightmares thinking about this method that we were using, as I type it out!). Jessica met with us, explained to us how twins required a bit more training and time to adjust and adapt to eachother’s schedules and then designed a customized plan that not only worked for them, but worked for our busy schedule as well. We needed a plan that not only we could follow, but one that worked for the girl’s babysitter as well, as we both had been back to work.
I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t nervous to sleep train because all I had envisioned was a cry it out method, and I knew that would be something I would never be able to implement. We also were in disbelief that we would be getting any sort of sleep within two weeks of sleep training. I was SO happy when Jessica rolled out the plan, and that it was a very gentle approach. I specifically loved how the program caters to your comfort level and the support you get from Jessica is unbelievable – it really gave us the confidence and reassurance that we could do it. My only regret is not reaching out to her sooner.
Jessica created a plan tailored specifically to our needs and the developmental age of the baby to help our little one gain the critical skills needed to fall and stay asleep. Jessica’s support and wisdom throughout this process was essential to our success. Her check ins made us feel heard, encouraged and optimistic. She challenged us when we needed to be challenged and cheered us on when it was time to celebrate a win (big or small).
From the very beginning we felt totally comfortable and at ease being in Jessica’s capable hands! Even the little things, like always calling Violet by name in any form of communication, let us know she genuinely cared. Jessica created a step by step plan catered specifically to Violet’s age and development and what we were comfortable with. Right away we could see a change as we watched our little babe learn the skills she needed for a peaceful sleep.
Jessica gave us something we lacked for 10 months - a good nights sleep. But not only that, Jessica gave us the confidence to help our baby build healthy sleep skills for life! Jessica was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the process, she was able to combine her education and expertise in childhood development and sleep science together with her experience being a mom and mom supporter to answer all of our questions and educate us about the benefits of providing our son with a solid sleep foundation.
