Whether you are traveling to see loved ones, or have friends and family staying with you, in all likelihood you and baby’s routines are […]

What People Are Saying
Just wanted to take the time to formally say thank you for helping us get a sense of normalcy back in our lives. Madilyn has been a hyper-alert kid from the womb and sleeping was not her cup of tea. While she was a perfectly pleasant, seemingly happy kid, we knew she couldn't possibly be getting the sleep she needed. And Patrick and I were at our wits end as walking zombies. Our ability to function as husband and wife, employees and mom/dad was severely impaired. Our quality of life was suffering severely and the side effects of sleep deprivation were dominating our existence. The first gift you gave us was just a sense of it's ok and you're ok. You let us know that we weren't horrible parents and that sleep challenges were something we could overcome. Then you gave us the tools to start taking back our life and giving Madilyn the sleep she needed to develop and flourish. These tools were practical and doable. It was a routine and a structure that had enough flexibility to satisfy my soul yet still be effective. There were some tears but I didn't have to hang Madilyn out to dry and leave her alone to cry until exhaustion. There were tough moments but the progress we saw kept us going. Her day care providers were amazed. They thought she was happy and content before but every teacher commented on how much more at ease she seemed. Along the way, your support, genuine empathy and firm encouragements were the greatest gifts of all! Down the road, when we experienced a set back, you were accessible and encouraging. With your guidance, we were back on track in a few days and Madilyn was once again sleeping through the night. You were there every step of the way, on good days and bad days; our committed coach. I can't thank you enough. We are a much healthier functioning family thanks to the sleep solutions you provided.

Megan performed a thorough evaluation of our situation and offered tips directly tailored to our needs; things we couldn't find in any book or on any website. Her comprehensive, supportive, and judgement free approach, gave us the tools to help our son and ourselves. We would recommend Megan to anyone in need of assistance with their child's sleep issues. Thanks to Megan's intervention our son now says he feel so good, I slept all night! which is music to our ears.

Our daughter was always rocked to sleep at night with a bottle. It was quick and easy and she would stay asleep while we quietly laid her down in her crib. She didn't sleep through the night every night but it wasn't bad and we were dealing with it fine. Then she turned 10 months old and it all changed. She refused to be rocked to sleep. She would squirm and want to get down to play. So we would lay her awake in her crib and she would scream like she was terrified! It got to the point that I would dread bedtime. We were at our wits end. Megan was an amazing person to work with on our daughters sleep issues. We did all the coaching over the phone. We talked with Megan almost every day and would address any questions or concerns. Although we didn't see changes overnight there is now a definite improvement in our daughters sleep and in ours. We don't dread bedtime anymore and that is amazing!
