I just wanted to share that we have been working with Elisa for a few weeks now, sleep training our 5.5 month old. Elisa’s thoughtful, patient, flexible yet methodical process meant that our son went from 6-7 wake ups per night to zero wake ups per night almost as soon as we started sleep training. Prior to sleep training, we were doing a lot of things “right” i.e.: following wake windows, not over-stimulating before naps and bedtime, putting our son to sleep in his crib, using darkness as a sleep cue, using the EASY routine. However, it simply wasn’t enough. We still had inconsistent naps, lots of nighttime wake ups and a very hard time putting our son back to sleep after a wake up. Elisa’s “holistic” approach is what helped.
In addition, I was very anxious about starting sleep training (even though I wanted to) and Elisa very considerately allayed my fears. Not once have I felt judgement or criticism either. I thought sleep training would be stressful but it really hasn’t been! For those of you out there struggling with how to “get there” and are not sure how much crying you are comfortable with, I just wanted to send these words of encouragement. Elisa and Pam’s methods are extremely useful. Our lives are just completely different now that our son has regular naps and a regular nighttime routine. I have been so happy with our experience, that I asked Elisa to share this testimonial!
