Lily - 22 Months
"I think for me, the hesitation to hire a sleep consultant was more thinking that if I asked for help, it meant that I failed at helping my daughter on my own.
Lily sleeps so much better at night. No more nighttime feeds. She naps on her own now. She's so much happier and eating more. We have a better schedule now. Plus, I can actually get chores done when Lily Is napping.
Erin is extremely kind and patient. I loved how passionate she is about helping families get better sleep!
Erin is easy to talk to and understanding. Very helpful and relatable.
I would recommend Erin to anyone I came across who expressed needing help with sleep training."

"Erin is a pleasure to work with. She is understanding and knowledgeable and has strategies that work.
Before Erin, my 3.5-year-old and 1.5-year-old were waking up continuously throughout the night, and everyone in the house was exhausted and miserable.
By the time our lessons with Erin were though, our children no longer fight or fuss and now sleep through the night.
Her insight and knowledge base has truly changed our family's nights into restful sleeps.
My husband and I could not have done this without her. "

"The internet is full of parents who have opinions on what makes a successful sleeping baby and nursery setup, but they completely contradict one another.
It is frustrating, and when you're in the thick of this chaos, you will try everything, which means nothing works.
We put ourselves through so much trying to solve our little girl's sleep issues and just assumed it was the four-month sleep regression.
After weeks of her only napping for 10-30 minutes, waking up screaming after 30 minutes at bedtime, needing to feed to sleep, and having complete meltdowns for nap and sleep time, we decided to bring in a professional.
It was so relieving to have a professional weed out the misinformation and set us up with clear guides for us as parents to follow.
In one night, our daughter stopped needing night feeds and, within just a couple of nights, slept through the night (meaning, she was able to put herself back to sleep).
In a few days, she was getting better, fuller naps during the day. Honestly, after the first week, we just t had situation-specific questions we needed guidance for; otherwise, our baby was a sleeping superstar at just five months old!
When I have told family and friends we hired a sleep consultant, many didn't know it was an option. Those who have littles are now considering this option if their little needs that helping hand.
Don't be afraid to get help. It may seem like something you as the parent should just be able to solve, but you don't need to do this alone.
Give yourself the relief and let someone else guide you."
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 :)”
"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.”

Felix - 10 Weeks Old
We were initially concerned about hiring a Sleep Consultant due to my sons age (10 weeks), we were concerned that he was too young, and the recommendations would be too strict. I was also worried that maybe I wouldn’t have the emotional fortitude to implement the recommendations.
But once we started working with Erin she put our concerns at ease. Right from the beginning she explained to us that this would be a rollercoaster and reminded us of this throughout our time together. She is a Mom herself and has been through this with her own children. Her stepwise approach works to gradually build the baby’s skills, as well as the skills of the parents. She offers straight forward advice, and was always willing and open to meet us where we were at.
Erin was always available to ask as many questions as we needed throughout the process. The WhatsApp texting allowed us to get fairly real time answers to questions or concerns as they came up.
My little guy now sleeps in his crib, on his own for all of his sleep both during the day and at night! I put Felix down and he falls asleep on his own within 5-10 minutes, and there is very little fussing. When there is fussing I now have the skills to be able to help him settle without panicking. Felix sleeps 10 to 12 hours every night, along with 3 to 4 hours of daytime sleep. We are now a well-rested happy family, and are able to enjoy our time together!!
I would recommend Erin to any parents who are struggling with sleep. I believe that quality sleep for parents and babies is invaluable for mental health, enjoyment, and development. Both my husband and I are really enjoying the experience of being new parents, even during a global pandemic, and I believe a large part of that is because the whole family is well rested. Thank you for guiding us through the process of helping Felix learn how to sleep!
Mackenzie - 9 months
"I seriously doubted that this would work; I was absolutely convinced Mackenzie was just one of those babies who didn't sleep. I hesitated to spend the money, but honestly, it was so worth it!
When you told me at the start she would be sleeping 12 hours straight within a few weeks - I laughed. Hard. You clearly didn't "know" my baby - haha! Low and behold, not only do I have a baby that sleeps, she's a champion sleeper!! I'm just glad I didn't make a bet with you - because I'd have lost!
She now goes to sleep on her own, without complaining, and sleeps all night! She also has two awesome naps a day. When I doubted myself, you gave me the confidence that I could do this!
Since completing your program I have more time to spend with my older daughter, with my husband and on myself! Plus, I get to sleep longer than 1 hour and 37 minute stretches at night! Which sort of rocks!
I would recommend Erin from To The Moon and Back Sleep Consulting to anyone that thinks "babies just don't sleep"! They can! And it's amazing!!"
