Will Things EVER Get Better?
Are you wondering why your toddler STILL cannot seem to settle by his or her self for the night?
You’re desperately exhausted and tired of waiting for it to “just get better” on its own.
Of course you love your little kiddo but when he’s woken you up for the umpteenth time that night, the only thought your brain can churn out is: SLEEP!!!
You hate feeling sluggish and lethargic, and feel like you’re always short on patience.
Quality time with your husband or other kids never seems to make it to the top of the list of your priorities.
You feel like you’ve passed every single milestone that people promised you “When he’s [fill in age here] it’ll get better,” and it’s still not better!
You don’t even remember what it’s like to feel well-rested. And is this kid even capable of falling asleep independently?
Here’s why I know what I’m talking about
I started motherhood with a bang. None of that “one at a time” business for me – I started off with twins.
Not that it was really a surprise – I knew they were coming. For some reason, though, it didn’t occur to me to do any kind of preparation for their arrival aside for birthing classes.
So when they were born, well… you could say it was tough. That’d be an understatement. But you could say it.
It wasn’t very long before I found myself in a bottomless whirlpool of BABY. Of laundry and feeds and diapers and bathing and crying and crying and crying. Me and them. I’d turn to my husband, he’d turn to me, and neither of us had the faintest idea what was wrong with them and why they wouldn’t just SLEEP.
I was a quintessential Mombie. After a couple fragmented minutes of sleep at night, I’d drag myself through the day, eyes always on the lookout for somewhere horizontal that I could lay down and close my eyes – even if only for a minute. When they slept, the whole house was silent, lest any noise dare wake them. And boy was I miserable. I knew there had to be a different way to make this work.
So I started reading and googling and talking and buying books and reading some more and asking questions to anyone I could get to listen to me in my half-crazed state.
And I patched together a piecemeal plan (which makes me look back now and wince), and I tried it out. And guess what? IT WORKED!
And, oh, that first night that they just slept… it was blissful. Truth is, I have a bit of a mental block from the time they weren’t sleeping well. For me, motherhood began once we were all sleeping.
And when you go through a transformation like that… there’s no way I could hold myself back from sharing it with the world. There was just no turning back. So I took an intensive three month course and got my official certification.
I work with the toddlers who still needed a pacifier and bottle to fall asleep (yes, BOTH!).
The toddlers who need Mommy or Abba to come tuck them in again, and again and again all throughout the night
The toddlers who end up in their parents’ room (or beds!) night after night because they’re are simply too tired to lay with them in their own beds
And they all learn to sleep by themselves the whole night in their own beds in only a few short weeks.
I love transforming the lives of the mothers I work with.
What if you knew your evening would look something like this:
After dinner, you wind down with your toddler, completely calm and confident knowing that bedtime is going to be a breeze.
Bedtime comes and it’s all snuggles and hugs. Ritual dances ‘round the house are a thing forgotten, and you kiss your little one good night, tuck him in and know that the rest of the night is yours.
You waltz out of the room and wonder, Hmmm what should I do tonight? Fold some laundry? Grab a last-minute babysitter and go out with hubby? Chill with some friends?
You nix them all and decide to just have a regular (well, the new regular, that is) relaxing evening, and turn in early for the night. Just because. No real reason. You’ve got years of lost sleep to catch up on, after all.
You wind down with a nice warm bath, a quick phone chat with a friend, and maybe a long-forgotten book.
And, of course, this means no nighttime skirmishes for you! Going to sleep means you’re out for the night. And you wake up, well-rested, to the birds chirping, not to your alarm clock clanging in your ear.
So, whaddaya think?
A bit of both?
Well, here’s what I’ve found: totally amazing and TOTALLY doable.
So how do we to make this happen?
It’s pretty simple.
Giving your little one the framework to be able to independently and calmly settle down to sleep will take a load off of your shoulders, and give you time to settle down with some self care, too.
I’ll guide you through giving your child the ability to self-soothe without the stress and difficulty of hours of crying from behind closed doors. And, before we end, you’ll be able to put your kiddo in bed, leave the room, and calmly wind down for the evening – no background crying involved.
Your child will learn to sustain that sleep, sleeping a full 12 hours at night without waking you – which means a full night of sleep for you, and a rested, energetic start to your day!
And sleep is SO important – for both you AND your little one. Did you know that some recent studies have found that:
Babies who don’t sleep well at night consistently perform worse on tests designed to assess memory, emotional control, and organization.
Children who don’t sleep well have lower IQs than children that do.
Children who get less than 10.5 hours of sleep per night are significantly more likely to be obese.
Children who sleep less than 11 hours per night score lower on all kinds of school tests, including math and literacy.
Boys who don’t sleep well are at a significantly higher risk for hyperactivity.
So how can we get you ALL sleeping better?

Wondering what moms I work with are saying?
“I wish I knew about you earlier…”
We feel such freedom and light-heartedness to have a dependable schedule. We are able to plan to go at night and get a baby sitter NO PROBLEM! I can leave things for after bedtime (laundry, daily clean up, reading, going for a walk, etc.) because I know I’ll have that time. I can also get to bed in time to have energy for the next day.
Your support and confidence inspired us that change was possible. Referring to your clear sleep plan helped us be on the same page and cut out struggling over decisions.
“I’m a calmer mother now”
I’m a busy working mother of four, and before we started, I couldn’t tackle a sink full of dishes or a load of laundry and expect to finish the job because Motty would inevitably wake up and cry. The other children were not able to get proper attention because Motty’s needs seemed more pressing.
After working together, he is now able to put himself to sleep. He doesn’t need me to nurse him, rock him, or push him in the stroller. He is able to get enough hours of restful sleep to be happy during the day.
I have more time for the other children (and myself!), and more time to bond with Motty, especially in the bedtime and nap time routines we implemented.
Let’s be honest here, ladies:
Let’s say you wanted a week off. Not for the whole day, you don’t want to give up that time with your kiddo, but a week of nights off.
So that means you’d have time to wind down in the evening, chill, dress up, whatever, and then turn in and SLEEP till morning.
What’s that worth to ya?
And how much would you give for a calm, well-rested kiddo during the day?
And time to reconnect with your husband?
How much would you pay for that?
You can do that all today for only $547.
