Kelly & Adrian – Isla 9 months; Edmonton, AB
While our baby was a terrible sleeper from birth, I was reluctant to try sleep training out of fear it would harm her. As a result, I suffered from 9 months of severe sleep deprivation to the point where it was affecting my mental, emotional, and physical health. I was also worried our baby’s lack of sleep was going to affect her development. I had read endless books on baby sleep methods but still didn’t feel I had a concrete plan specific to our baby’s needs. We finally made the decision to hire Heather and it was the best decision we could have made for our family. Heather met our baby, helped us understand her personality, and worked with us to find the right combination of methods that worked for her (and for us). She was very open to working with whatever approach we felt comfortable with. It took a lot of hard work and consistency on our part, and although we were a tougher case, Heather stood by us every step of the way and went above and beyond to make sure we were seeing the results we hoped for. Our baby is now consistently sleeping through the night, and I actually feel like a normal, functioning person again. My only wish is that we would have hired Heather much sooner! Thank you for all of your support, Heather! We couldn’t have done this without you!
