"Working with Desiree was a life changing experience! We had a big move coming up (buying and selling at the same time) and we knew something had to change with our sleeping “arrangement”! We are first time parents and our son was about 7 months old when we started working with Desiree. We went from co-sleeping at night while comfort nursing every couple of hours or so, and holding our son in the glider in his darkened room for naps to him sleeping through the night and napping on his own, in just under three weeks!
We had been on the fence whether we wanted/needed to go the sleep coach route and we are SO glad we did. Desiree gave us the push we needed to make it happen. This gave us our much needed time back to prepare for the move, and gave our son the independence we felt he was ready for and needed (although he may have disagreed at the time �).
Along with a comprehensive weekly plan and options for different types of training methods, Desiree provided the support, reassurance, empowerment, and advice we needed throughout our 1:1 time together. There were a couple of bumps along the way (mom overslept a couple of times, still getting used to not being woken up every couple of hours and getting actual restorative sleep), and that was OK! Just jump back on the horse and get on track the next day, no judgement!
In addition to our 1:1 time together, we’re also a part of the Sleep Elite Club, which has been a great resource for us! As we know, babies are changing so quickly and routines don’t stay the same forever! Our son went through the 3 to 2 nap transition just after our three week 1:1 time was up. It was so nice to be able to get the quick support we needed through Sleep Elite to put together a plan for how to handle the transition.
We know that establishing a routine for our son is one of the most important things we could have done for him. But we didn’t realize how much it would effect us too, as parents. Thanks to Desiree, we are no longer drained to the point of exhaustion and feel we have the energy to keep up with our growing son !
Choosing to with with Desiree was one of the best steps we’ve taken yet"
