Theo - 9 months
Before we began, I was concerned that the Sleep Consultant wouldn’t understand or work with our concerns (for example - Mom who cannot handle a lot of crying).
But Right off the bat, you could tell that you genuinely care about what you do, and you put us at ease with just the one phone call.
Throughout our three weeks working together, you were always there with support and honesty, and you always tried to tweak things for the benefit of Theo instead of just “trying to work it out.” It was also comforting knowing you understood where we were coming from and could appreciate some of the concerns and worries that I (Mom) had. Honestly, everything was laid out perfectly, so we knew what to expect and when to expect it.
Every single thing about our sleep/naps has changed for the better! We’re on the appropriate wake windows and appropriate nap sleep times, and we’re all getting a FULL night's sleep!
Theo was always a happy baby from day one, but there’s just something different with this “happy” that he is with the proper sleep, and it absolutely melts my heart seeing it, so I think we’re all a bit better off mentally and emotionally.
People should know that You truly care about the families you take on, and you make it seem like they’re the only family that you’re working with.
We cannot thank you enough for your help with our little one! It was seriously night and day with our sleeps and naps, and even though we’re still not perfect and have some minor things, we could not have done this without you!

Parker - 6 Months
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was nervous about what the process would entail and didn’t want someone to judge how I was parenting
My little one can sleep through the night! And her naps are longer and more predictable. She went from waking every other hour in the night needing to be rocked back to sleep to sleeping 12 hours straight on her own. Her naps also improved and went from 15-30 minutes to over an hour!
I appreciated the support and the information Erin provided. She was very easy to talk to and had no judgement whatsoever. There were some rough days but with Erin’s help we got through them and are so glad we stuck it out! Both baby and parents are now getting their much-needed sleep!
This process has provided both my husband and I the confidence to move forward with our daughter’s sleep schedule. We know that there will be bumps along the way, but we now have the tools to help us through those times.
Erin is very down to earth and takes her time with you. It really made us feel important and listened to. She was very informative and patient with our many questions!

"I forgot what sleeping through the night was like, until I starting working with Erin!!!
At first i was a little skeptical when she mentioned that she would be able to have my little girl taking 3 naps a day and sleeping 10-12 hours a night; after all she barely napped and would sleep for 3-4 hours at a time during the night.
I could not believe the results. Erin walked me through the process, and mentioned that it was going to be tough because there were a lot of "bad" habits that needed to be changed.
Erin gave me the confidence to not give in to every cry, that its okay for babies to cry it's good for their lungs.
The first few days were tough, I won't lie. As a mom I never like to hear my little one cry. I will pick her up and rock her back to sleep or just let her sleep on me just so she'd stay sleeping.
But Erin has taught me the skills and confidence I needed to get through the first hump. I was amazed after the first few days.
My little one went down for her naps like clockwork, and she consistently slept through the night for 12 hours!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a better sleep consultant. Erin was there to answer any of my questions, give me advice when she noticed different sleeping issues, and did follow up calls throughout this sleep journey. 10 out of 10 :)”
Rocky 2 Years & 3 Months
Our son was keeping us awake and exclusively co-sleeping which resulted in him not getting enough sleep and us getting woken up when he wanted to feed several times throughout the night.
He is now sleeping very well on his own and is very easy to put to bed. The recommended white noise machine is great (he will sleep through music, movies, or company).
Erin provided a plan to get him back in his own bed and now he sleeps in his own bed without a fight.
The advice and information provided was very useful. The plan was specific and easy to understand.
I think it is useful to have someone outside provide perspective to what is possible and normally achievable.
It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with sleep training.
Maud 6 Weeks - 4 Months
"Since working with Erin, our little one is sleeping like a champion. She sleeps through the night and goes down without a battle at naps. No more rocking, bouncing, signing, feeding her to sleep....
Our little one has learned how to fall asleep on her own! Something I honestly didn't think would be possible. What an amazing gift- not only to us as tired parents, but to our daughter who has mastered the skill of sleeping.
Erin was beyond patient with us. She took the time to answer all of our questions and made us feel safe working with her. Erin went above and beyond to help our family and we are forever great full for teaching us the skills to help our little one get the sleep she (and we) needed.
To any parent out there who is on the fence of whether to hire a sleep consultant, I can honestly say it was the best investment our family made.
There is so much information (and miss-information) out there on sleeping. Erin will help you develop a plan specific to your little one and help you navigate through the process of learning this ever so important skill. Thank you so much!!!!!”
Ayana - 20 Months
As a family, we got our sleep back!
We were co-sleeping and nursing to sleep every day. Bedtime would take 1 to 2 hours every night, and our daughter would wake up 2-5 times every night.
Now thanks to Erin and her sleep training, our 21-month-old daughter sleeps through the night in her own room and is able to fall back asleep on her own. She is now sleeping 11-12 hours every night without any sleep prop.
Erin's program works and is adapted and personalized to your child.
We would recommend Erin's services to family and friends with a baby/toddler of any age experiencing difficulties with sleeping.
Benjamin - 5 Months
"Erin has exceeded all my expectations about sleep training.
I am a physician and I knew a lot about sleep training already and was still not able to successfully succeed on my own.
Erin helped me and my family in a encouraging and simple way to achieve that. She is professional, kind and very approachable. She makes you feel valued.
My little one is 5 months and sleeping through the night. He is happier and I am too.
I would highly recommend her to my friends and my patients."
Rose - 1YO
"Our 1 year old daughter was still waking up frequently in the night. And we were lucky if we could get her to sleep for 45 min naps during the day. I had tried the sleep sense program, and it made a little difference, but we still weren’t where we wanted to be. I found out about Erin through the sleep sense website. She is incredibly easy to talk. Within a few nights of following the suggestions Erin made, our daughter was sleeping longer and having better daytime naps. By the end of our three weeks together, she is sleeping 12 hours through the nights and usually having a 2 hour mid day nap. She’s so much happier and content during the day and so much easier to put to bed or back to sleep if she does wake up. Als a parent who was extremely exhausted, I couldn’t see all the small little things that I could change to help our daughter. We are so grateful for Erin’s support.”
Lochlin - 3.75 YO
When my wife and I reached out looking for help with our son Lochlin , we were both at our wits ends with him and the battle to go to bed and sleep every night. Both of us dreaded the night time routine that we had fallen into , the screaming and yelling and fighting had drained both of us down and made night time a not enjoyable time in our house.
When we did reach out to Erin we were both a loss as how to deal with Lochlin. Not only was his temper out of control but ours was beginning to get out of control as well due to the lack of sleep going on in the house.
Erin made both of feel like we hadn't failed at being parents cause our child didn't sleep, but that we had done nothing wrong and we should be proud of the fact that we were asking for help.
Thought the whole process Erin continued to not only make sure Lochlin was thriving with his new found sleep, but that we were also thriving and feeling better with more sleep. Within the 3 weeks of the program Lochlin's attitude and temperament changed for the better and he is now easy to put to bed not only for us but for anyone from uncles and aunts to our babysitter.
We can't thank Erin enough for bringing peace and restful night to our home!!!!!

Grayson 5 Years
My first hesitation is that they would not be able to help my child who is older, 5 years old to be exact. He was the perfect sleeper from 8 weeks old until 4.5 years old then suddenly developed sleep issues.
But Grayson is sleeping on his own, in his own bed, I am no longer sleeping in the same room or bed and I am no longer sleeping on the floor outside his room. He went from waking 5 or 6 times a night needing me to sleep with him to sleeping on his own and waking 1 time a night.
I loved that you met me where I was with Grayson. I think you saw that he was having a lot of anxiety surrounding sleeping on his own. Thank you for giving us the tools to help him succeed.
We feel confident knowing how to set the nighttime boundaries. Even when he wakes and sometimes, he needs more soothing than others he still knows he can sleep on his own and eventually settles back to sleep. Thank you!
The most important thing people should know about working with Erin is that she will tailor the work to the child! Which is exactly what we needed.
She was amazing!
Grayson - 7 Months
Before hiring a sleep consultant, I was hesitant about the cost and leaving my son to cry.
But I haven’t had to picked him up through the night since we started working with Erin. He has had nights where he’s cried but it only happens once in a while.
Erin is so down to earth! She made me feel very comfortable in talking about my concerns.
I now know it’s OK to let him cry a little! And I feel like a better mother because I am now getting sleep.
Erin truly understands what we are going through. Husbands try to be as supportive as they can but don’t truly understand.
And you get so many people saying "oh it's normal they aren’t sleeping my children didn’t sleep through the night until they were two".
And I learned it’s not normal! And giving your baby the tools to learn to sleep well is so important for babies and moms!
I really can’t thank you enough for what you have done for our family!
Knixon – 3.5 Months
Erin was such a pleasure to work with she was caring and understanding. She offered suggestions to help with my anxiety with sleep training my son for myself while still setting the stage so my son would sleep. It was a win win plan for everyone!
"We thought that we we're past the point of no return with our 9 month old. He wouldn't sleep without either being nursed or rocked. He would wake 5-6 times a night and would never sleep in his crib. He was either in his mother's arms or in bed with both of us. Nobody was sleeping and we were reaching critical madness. After the first week and half of this program, he would fall asleep on his own, sleep 12 hours a night, by himself, and if he awoke, he would self-sooth and go back down. 2, one hour naps per day, by himself in his crib. A borderline miracle. We are a different family now, everybody is sleeping, when he cries, we know something is wrong rather than guessing if he's tired ( before this he was, all the time). My advice, is DO IT, put aside your reservations, and do it. It will improve yours & your child's lives 10 fold. It's a tough go for the first few days, but worth its weight in gold in the end. Never mind $400, I would have paid $4000 if I'd had known the results.”

Oakley - 4 Months
I wasn't sure if spending the money was going to be worth it. Now I can say with confidence it WAS worth it! I have my sanity back! I started this journey with waking up 4x a night and dealing with 30-40 min crap naps all day with my baby. I am now down to 1x a night and he's napping 3 solid naps a day that last anywhere from 1-3 hours depending. I don't feel like I'm living at a sleep torture camp anymore! I can't thank you enough for your support on those days I wanted to give up, for answering my 1000 questions and for giving me back some much-needed sleep.
Madelyn – 4 Months
"We were at our end with our little ones’ sleep issues and having 2 older kiddos meant that there was no way for me to sleep during the day to catch up... so we had to do something about our then 4-month-old sleep habits. It took some time but now we have a baby who happily sleeps thru the night and allows our whole family to sleep better too :)"
Caleb - 9 Months
“Our son at 9-10 months old was waking 2-3 times a night (only nursing once), and would have 3 naps a day, each nap at 20 minutes in length. He also had no idea how to put himself to sleep. Soothers, car rides, swings, stroller walks, carriers, nothing worked. The only way he would fall asleep was for us to rock him. Sometimes, not often, nursing would put him to sleep. Rocking him to sleep would take approx. 20-30 minutes each time. We were exhausted and had no hope in our son being able to fall asleep on his own and to stay asleep. We really did not think the process would work but decided to give it a chance. What did we have to lose. He already wasn't sleeping so may as well try. He is NOW sleeping through the night and actually having two naps a day at 1-2 hours each nap!!!! On top of that, he is putting himself asleep in his crib! We put him in his crib and 10-20minutes later he is asleep. The 10-20 minutes in the crib he is calm, happy even and blabbing to himself. If you feel exhausted and that your little one is just not sleeping or/and cant fall asleep, give it a try! It really does work!”

Ellie – 7 Months
“When my little one was newborn, I said I would never do sleep training with her because I never wanted to not respond when she cried out to me.
Our daughter reached a point where her daytime sleep did not exist because she was so distracted by her surroundings - she was miserable and it made all of us miserable!
We knew that the habits we had formed around her sleep were no longer sustainable and that we needed to make a change!
We decided to hire a sleep consultant because it gave us comfort to have a guideline and parameters to follow along with and someone to check in with along the sleep training journey. We were overwhelmed by all the information and different methods of sleep training out there and knowing that all babies are different, we did not want to wing it with a cookie cutter method.
Erin is wonderful to work with! We felt comfortable immediately! She is understanding and not judgemental about the sleep habits that we had in place and works with you at your comfort level to get everyone sleeping effectively! She keeps communication open throughout the process and is available for questions along the way!
As soon as we started sleep training with Erin, she took to it well, and there much less tears involved than we had prepared ourselves for! We have a very stubborn little girl and it became very clear, very quickly that she was ready for sleep training and we are so happy with the results!
We had some travel booked prior to starting and Erin gave us some great travel tips and helped us work through the days away to help our daughter get through these days smoothly. She did great!
We started out with a 7-month-old who was sleeping well at night but with multiple night waking’s, but never napped independently - naps only took place while nursing or in her car seat. Within days she was sleeping completely through the night and napping in her crib during the day - this gave us 2 full weeks to focus on improving her daytime sleep and at the end of the 3 weeks she is effectively napping twice a day (up to 4 hours a day)!
Our daughter is sleeping completely independently for 14-16 hours a day! She is happier when she is awake and goes to sleep with no tears at bedtime and at nap time! We now have a happy and well-rested baby girl (and a happy well-rested mama!)!!
Makayla - 7.5 Months
"This is the real deal and it is actually possible to have your little one sleep through the night. We were a little skeptical at first but just after the first night, our little one was sleeping through the night! Our baby is so much calmer and happier which we didn't think was possible as she was so happy before. Consistency is key and knowing you are doing this to better your little ones sleeping gives you the motivation to keep going.
Without the help and knowledge from Erin, we would not have been able to do this. She is truly great at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone that is having any sleep issues. Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you can't wrap your head around what to do and having someone for support and to lean on who is an outsider, is so helpful. Especially since Erin has been through this with her own kids! Don't wait until you hit rock bottom and are so sleep deprived you can't think straight before you start making changes, you owe it to yourself and your little one. It is so worth it! Thank you Erin, we could not have done it without you."
Aubrey - 10 Months
My husband and I hired Erin after our 10 month old regressed to waking every 45 minutes. We were spending hours getting her to sleep - then constantly alternating turns in her room after she woke. We were exhausted and had no time with each other at all. We needed a program that was effective yet gentle enough to allow us to comfort her through the process. It wasn't easy..... But it worked! After three nights, our girl was sleeping 12 HOURS at night!!!!Naps are longer as well! We really appreciated Erin's encouragement through it, and her availability for any questions we might have had.
My husband and I watched a movie together for the first time in 6 months!!!!! Our whole family is more rested and much happier!
Brooklyn - 10 Months
Initially the cost was our only hesitation. I knew this was a good thing for my daughter and I realized how important getting proper sleep was but little did I know the impact it would have on our whole family. It was well worth it.
Since working with Erin, my daughter goes down effortlessly twice a day for naps and is sleeping through the night (11-12 hours). She has been sleeping through the night since night 6 of the sleep plan. Along with that, she is no longer takes a soother and is completely off night feeding! I can't express how amazing of a feeling it is. She is overall an even happier baby than she was at the start of this! The real test was when her Grandma took her overnight and had the same results, no struggle to go down for naps and bedtime was a breeze, and of course no night waking.
I have to say for anyone considering hiring Erin, yes, sure there is a cost but you are investing in something a new mother and mothers in general are lacking...precious sleep! This seriously has changed our lives. People need to know that Erin won't leave you hanging. There was always a solution to the wrenches my daughter threw at me throughout the sleep training plan. Erin is friendly, and easy to talk too. I recall a couple times I wanted to give up and didn't think I was cut out for doing the training with my daughter but Erin talked me through it and gave me solutions to fix the nap issues we had encountered.
Not only have I seen a difference in my daughter with her sleeping but I have felt the impact too. Prior to the sleep training plan, I was unable to get the sleep I desperately needed as well, I would be waking up anywhere from 2-3x a night whether it was for a night feeding, cause her soother was lost or I would just find myself lying in bed anticipating her waking up so in turn it kept myself up longer than necessary. I can honestly say after doing the sleep training plan that Erin created, it has made me a better mother. I feel better in the morning, no longer lacking sleep, I'm happier and well rested which in turns makes me care for my daughter better. This is huge for me.
I just wanted to thank you Erin, for your support I received throughout this process. It definitely had its ups and downs. But we are so happy with the results. It was worth every penny and I would recommend Erin to anyone. Can't thank you enough, my only regret is not contacting Erin sooner!”
Sloan - 3 Weeks
"When our baby was only a couple of weeks old we were struggling as parents to sleep. Our daughter would sleep during the day and stay up all night and as brand new parents, we were told this is normal. In today’s day and age, there is no shortage of research, opinions, blogs, websites and friends that all add in their tidbits and anecdotes in an attempt to help. It became difficult to wade through all the information on any given subject and we decided as a couple that sleep was priority number one. We felt that if we could just get that one aspect of everything under our belts that we could handle everything else. It made sense to ask for help and it made sense to get that help from someone who knew what they were doing. Erin and I grew up together and I had seen her posts about sleep consulting on Facebook and I decided to reach out. We were concerned it was too early to start the training, but Erin assured us that it was never too early to start developing the right sleep habits. She worked closely with my wife, Sheyanne and reviewed the journals we were keeping and coached us along. It was so great to have a resource like this – another mother who was able to relate to the problems we were having and connect with my wife in order to get the sleep routine set. The guidelines were easy to understand (sometimes more difficult to implement) and achieved the goal of teaching us (the parents) the correct habits and routine. Our daughter is now 10 weeks old and sleeps for 6-10 hours at a time at bedtime. Sometimes as parents it is difficult to know if you are doing the right thing, but we know that we got this one right.
Thank you To the Moon and Back for your help and allowing us to get the most precious commodity available to parents, our own sleep!"
Tommy - 4.5 YO & Charlie -2.5 YOErin's intervention and support have been life changing for my family. She completed a sleep plan for both my 4 year-old and my 2 year-old. Our children now happily go to sleep on their own without a parent right beside them, and routinely sleep through the night. My husband and I have our evenings back and my children finally have the rest that they need. The overall stress in our home has gone down markedly now that everyone is finally getting adequate rest.
Erin is truly supportive and insightful. She was adept at dealing with different sleep issues presented by each of my sons and her personalized suggestions worked wonderfully. I am most happy that this was not a cry-it-out approach, so our children have had loving support in becoming confident and competent sleepers.
I highly recommend this program for problem sleepers. My only regret is not doing this sooner!
Alexia - 15 Months Old
"My hesitation for working with a sleep consultant was just that I wouldn't learn anything new or different from a consultant versus just reading up on it. But we were able to get rid of all sleep props with Erin’s help. She was very nice and thorough. I really enjoyed the informative and thoughtful emails:)"

Ellie 7 Months Old (Now 3 Years Old)
Hi Erin! If you remember me, we hired you a few years back for my daughter, Ellie, when she was seven months old. I wanted to send you a note because we had another baby, and he's four months old now, and he's been sleeping through the night for the past two months. I just wanted to send you a little thank you because I feel like working with you helped us out with both of our kids. We went into this journey with more knowledge and confidence, and it has made our whole experience with a newborn SO MUCH BETTER! So, thank you!
I had to share, this experience has been so much easier for the whole family! Ellie turned 3 on Friday, time is flying! Baby is my angel baby and has been sleeping through the night - waking at 5am from his dream feed at 10pm - since around 6 weeks old, and right until 7am at about 2 months. It's been such a positive experience we are almost tricked into having another one!
Thanks again, so much, for helping my family! I will always sing your praises. Take care and be safe!
Sydney - 9.5 Months
"Before hiring a sleep consultant my hesitations were putting time and money into it and it not working or not agreeing with the consultant’s approach.
But we now have the ability to put our 10-month-old daughter into the crib awake and she self-soothes herself to sleep. She is sleeping for longer naps and 10-13 hrs at nights without waking. Plus, she no longer needs a bottle to fall asleep.
Our plan was clear and easy to follow. Erin provided support through the process of sleep training and was easy to talk to. We enjoyed documenting our baby's sleep so we can see the progress.
I would recommend Erin from To The Moon and Back Sleep Consulting to other parents going through sleep issues such as family, friends, and coworkers. Erin was committed to making this work with us. She wanted our daughter to sleep better. It was affordable and we got quite a bit of her time when we needed it.”
