"Contacting Tracie was the best decision ever! In one week, my almost 17 month old went from cosleeping with me, nursing throughout the night and not being able to sleep for any stretch of time on her own to falling asleep HAPPILY in her own crib within 20 minutes! Most importantly, I have noticed a huge change in her personality now that she is well-rested. She is happy and energetic where she used to be cranky most of the day because she was tired. Tracie helped us come up with a plan and provided feedback and support every step of the way. She was very prompt in responding to emails and was always positive and helpful. I truly regret not contacting her sooner. I had struggled with the idea of hiring a sleep consultant because I had read the books and thought I knew what I should do but just couldn't get myself to get started. Not only did Tracie provide a personalized plan and information that I had overlooked in the book, she was that accountability that I needed to keep me on track. If you are debating whether you should contact Tracie, just do it! I promise it will be money well spent!"
"I got my life back! I was skeptical because my 9 month old did not want to sleep. I now have the peace of mind knowing she is getting the sleep that she needs and I am no longer anxious about how often she will wake up during the night. Tracie was amazing to work with and sleep training was the best decision we made - I now have a baby that sleeps from 7pm to 7am!"
"Tracie is a God-send! My husband and I were about to crack from sleep deprivation. Our 16 month old daughter had sleep issues since birth. We tried SO many things to get her to sleep more, and nothing worked. A friend of mine referred Tracie to me, and I couldn't be more thankful! She is the sweetest person and completely knowledgeable. She worked with us to set a tailored sleep coaching plan. I really liked the “gentle” approach and my daughter responded well to it. It’s A LOT more supportive than the cry-it-out method, while still giving her the tools to self-soothe. Before sleep coaching, my daughter needed to be rocked to sleep every night, split the night between crib and co-sleeping, and had several wakings - usually including a 2-4 hour block of awake time in the middle of the night. Now, she’s sleeping 11-12 hours a night, is 100% in her crib, and can soothe herself to sleep. I can’t say enough amazing things about Tracie and this sleep coaching approach!"
