Three weeks ago, I began working with Diane to re-set my daughter’s sleep patterns. She is 2.5 years old, and had horrible sleep habits. She fought bedtime, and woke up at 2 or 3 am five nights a week, and then refused to go back to bed until almost 5am. Furthermore, she was taking ‘disaster naps’ that were either way too short, or hours too long. This was not sustainable, and we were both exhausted, cranky, and desperate for help!
Diane’s coaching, and customized plan, along with daily check-ins, and feedback were a life saver! Within a week, my daughter stopped fighting her bedtime routine, and adjusted her sleep patterns to go to bed a full hour earlier, with minimal fuss! Diane worked with me step by step to integrate the ‘sleep lady shuffle’ into our bedtime routine, and checked in with me every step of the way as we gradually moved from her bedside, to a more independent schedule.
By week 2, my daughter adapted to a modified nap schedule, and even happily says, ‘nap time’ when she knows her body needs rest. She has taken ownership of her rest patterns, and is more in tune with her sleep-needs.
She now goes to bed without a fuss, and is able to quiet herself down at bedtime, and naptime! Her attitude, demeanor, and overall joy have improved drastically.
Working with Diane was such a blessing- she was incredibly patient, knowledgeable, and offered flexible suggestions to adapt to my daughter’s responses as we adjusted her sleeping patterns. I have seen a huge, positive, change in my daughter’s behavior, and in her willingness to listen as a result of her increased sleep! I cannot thank Diane enough for the positive change she has made in our life, and for the ‘toolbox’ of skills I have learned to help my daughter (and consequently me!) sleep!

Before starting coaching with Diane, we thought we were "getting by" with our toddler's sleep. It wasn't until we started to really explore the challenges of every day life with rough, unpredictable sleep patterns and started to make positive changes that it became obvious how much we'd resigned ourselves to just surviving. Coaching and support from Diane has changed so much for our family. It's improved my postpartum depression more than anything else has thus far. Getting into a regular routine and having confidence that our child will sleep well and be more rested and happy is priceless.

You will not regret doing the amazing training with Diane.
It will be challenging, but with her support and guidance she will help you through every step of the way.
My wife and I have a 16 month old who was nursing up to 5 times a night, while also sleeping with us in the bed. After 3 weeks of Diane’s program our daughter is now sleeping in her crib every night and no longer waking up to breastfeed. It has changed our lives for the better and made it so the whole family is now getting good quality sleep! You seriously can not put a price tag on that! Thank you Diane for all your help and hard work!

Working with Diane as our gentle sleep coach was wonderful! She was genuinely interested in our current sleep approach and excited to help! I knew we were in good hands and were going to receive great advice to help us move forward with Caroline's sleep schedule after our consultation. I love that she continued to reassure us that we had a pretty good sleep routine in place but with just a few tweaks we could see some improvement. It's now been about 3 weeks and Caroline has slept through the night every night since then! She was right, we needed her advice on a few of those tweaks and it worked!
