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."

"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!

"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.”
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.”
Griffin - 6 Weeks
“When my son was born it became apparent fairly quickly that he was not one to fall asleep on his own. He wouldn't nurse to sleep or just be put down to sleep at all. I would sometimes be able to rock him to sleep with a pacifier but it was taking hours. The worst was putting him down to sleep at night and it would take hours for me to get him to sleep. Also for the middle of the night wakings it was taking hours to get him back down to sleep even though it only took him 15 minutes to eat.
After seeing some recommendations on facebook I contacted Erin and am so pleased I did. She put together an extensive sleep training plan for my guy. I started right away and saw results within a day. Erin was available for questions as needed and our check in phone calls. I also found the sleep log very useful to track how much sleep Griffin was actually getting.
I am so happy Griffin now goes to sleep independently for naps and bedtime (including one middle of the night feeding) without a soother, swaddle or any other sleep props. I have people comment to me all the time how well he sleeps for his age and I explain a bit about sleep training and how much it has helped. Also because he is sleeping so well I was able to get back into my workout routine and am on my way to being fit again. Since started the sleep training I am down 20 pounds!”

I can't believe just how much you have helped my family and in so many ways. We never thought it was possible, but we now have our bed back! Our kids are sleeping through the night AND in their own beds - life changing! ... My son is a completely different boy now that he is well rested throughout the night and my daughter is finally taking her naps that she has so desperately needed. Your guidance, tips and tricks were the key to this whole process! - We can't thank you enough!!!
Sarah - 6 Months
"Before we started Erin’s sleep plan for our almost six-month-old daughter, it was almost impossible to put Sarah down for a nap. She had absolutely no skills in settling herself to sleep and, if we let her, she would wail for an hour before passing out. As a result, we were resigned to holding Sarah or otherwise trying to calm her down before every nap, or taking her for a car or stroller ride to make sure she got some sleep. Sometimes it could take up to an hour or longer to settle her. Once asleep, her naps were never longer than 20-30 minutes. We had a chronic cat-napper on our hands! Every trick that worked well for her older sister, who is an amazing sleeper, did not work for Sarah. This caused stress and exhaustion in our household.
After seeing Erin highly recommended on a Facebook moms’ group, I knew we needed her help. I was so skeptical with her sleep plan at first thinking that in no way was it going to work—she just doesn’t know our daughter—but we stuck to it as best as we could and it worked far better than I could ever have hoped. In less than two weeks, it became so easy to put Sarah down for a nap (just one book and a short lullaby—no fussing!) and she never naps for less than an hour. She will gladly nap for 1.5-2.5 hours twice or more a day. Her sleep deprivation is going away and she is a much happier baby. The big bonus for us is that Sarah now also sleeps for 12 hours straight during the night, when before we would wake up every 2-4 hours to put her back to sleep. We didn’t think it was a problem—it was her lack of napping that concerned us—so this is such a nice surprise and we feel so lucky that we have our nights back for our own sleep! I don’t have enough good things to say about Erin. She was professional and friendly, thorough and knowledgeable, easy to contact, and prompt with all of her phone calls. She did the impossible for Sarah and our family. Thank you, Erin!"
Bennett - 4 Months
Erin from To The Moon and Back Sleep Consulting is great! She was available for us every step of the way, even when we had a setback within our 3-week training that took us out of town and away from the routine. We can proudly say that we have a 4-month-old baby who consistently takes 3-4 naps per day and sleeps 9-10 hours a night, typically with one wake up (but he seems to be even moving away from this!!)
We would highly recommend Erin and her consulting to any parent who is in need of a good night's sleep!
Bentley – 7 months old
We were initially hesitant in hiring a Sleep Consultant worrying that it wouldn’t work in the end, and we would have wasted our time and money. Once we started working with Erin she was so encouraging and positive, provided prompt responses, and was flexible in her approaches when we needed adjustments putting our concerns at rest.
Through our time with Erin we successfully transitioned Bentley to his crib, he naps very well on schedule, he always falls asleep on his own, he sleeps 12 straight hours every night. We also feel way more confident in every facet of our daily parenting.
I would recommend Erin and To The Moon and Back Sleep consulting, and have already mentioned our success to other parents who have babies or toddlers that need to develop sleep skills. Erin offers as very personalized service.
I wish I could go back in time and hire Erin when our first child was born! After a few sleepless years, we knew we couldn’t do that again with our second child. Erin gave us our freedom back. We committed to the program and our 7-month old son now naps like a champ during the day and sleeps 12 straight hours every night. Thank you Erin for your patience, insight, and support!
