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!
