We were referred to Jess by a friend who knew we were struggling after 10 months of not getting much sleep with our beautiful baby boy. Without consciously subscribing to any particular parenting style, we had fallen into a type of attachment parenting that meant we fed our baby at every wake up through the night. After months of erratic sleep & regular wake ups, we were beyond exhausted and starting to feel desperate for some kind of solution.. and so we were so thankful when we spoke to Jess at Sleep Tight All Night. From the outset, Jess was professional, empathetic, and instilled confidence that we would find a solution to suit us all. She understood we wanted to be as gentle with our baby as possible, so she crafted and documented a staged plan for us to be with him as he learnt to self-settle and sleep for longer chunks at night and during the day. Within 3 days, we saw changes in our baby that we hadn't anticipated seeing in years. We had been concerned about the impact of 'sleep training', but Jess quelled our concerns with research-based information that quietly stressed the importance of enough sleep for ALL the family.. I couldn't agree more. Having caught up a little on sleep ourselves, we felt anew & able to be the parents we always wanted to be... but most importantly, we saw our boy happier & more relaxed (well-rested) through the day.. We can't quite believe the change in him and for us. We're so thankful for Jess' support. She provided empathy, motivation and care, every step of the way. I couldn't recommend her and her services more highly. Thank you Jess!
A few weeks ago I had no idea if I would ever get my baby to sleep by herself again. Now,after getting Jess’s help, when I put my baby in her in her cot ,she smiles at me and says ‘goodnight mummy’ and then quietly falls asleep. I personally am in SHOCK! Jess has helped me, my family, my work and mostly my 20 month old bub so much with her sleep training! We are both happier because we can actually sleep through the night. I’m talking ’12 hour sleeps’. She also doesn’t need a bottle to sleep, of which she was addicted to only a few weeks ago. I can’t even explain how lovely Jess has been in teaching and supporting me through this emotional but essential journey of helping my baby learn to sleep by herself.
Seeking support from Jess has been one of the best decisions I've made for my little boy and my family. After 12 months of sleepless nights, with a toddler and return to work, I was in survival mode and struggling to get out of the rut.
I was anxious to make a change, and convinced myself it would improve, but the months went by. Enter Jess, our sleep saviour! From our first conversation she was so lovely, enthusiastic and confident she would help us meet our goals. We problem solved and came up with a "plan".
The early days were tough, we were all learning to make change, however I felt empowered by having the tools and knowing what to do - important in those dark hours. Jess encouraged me with empathy, telling me to be consistent and to remember, I was doing it for my baby.
After a few nights, it suddenly "clicked" and baby boy was sleeping peacefully through the night, I couldn't believe it! He is so happy now, learning so much, eating well, started walking and talking, it's incredible what a little sleep can do! Everyone has noticed he is thriving now. I only wish I had done it sooner!
Thank you, thank you Jess for all your support and helping me keep strong and consistent for my boy. You're advice was spot on.
We realised we needed to do something different when after 11 months, Benji was still not sleeping through the night without being nursed back to sleep every 3-4 hours.
Jess was amazing, she just seemed to know exactly what to do for Benji and had the confidence to make us believe it was possible to get him to sleep for 11.5 hours straight!
Jess wrote us a plan of exactly how we were going to 'change things up' so he could self settle. She tailored it to him and his needs, personality and our comfort level, not just a one size fits all approach.
We had so many questions and Jess had all the time in the world to answer them.
Benji was sleeping through the night on day 3! We just couldn't believe it, she is our 'Baby Whisperer'!
We are now more rested, Benji is a much happier baby, at home and importantly at Child Care, where the educators have noticed a huge improvement in his days with them! Something I hadn't considered either is that we are more of a team than ever. We could not be more thrilled with how Jess has transformed our little world.....
