Jen is the Perfect Person to Help with Our Baby’s Sleep Problems

What an amazing turnaround it’s been for our family. It’s been 8 months in and we have read several books, subscribed to various baby sleep programs, and tried out various options to help us with our baby’s sleep problems. We spent $$$ month after month trying to help our bub to sleep through the night and get those day naps in place. We didn’t have major success with the methods we tried, and ended up rocking our bub to sleep for the most of it. It was so tiring for us as sometimes we would find ourselves rocking bub for about an hour, and sometimes bub would sleep for 10 mins and just wake up and then we would start rocking again. Some off-days are good and we have good nights, and then we think we have finally achieved success, but then we find ourselves back to square one the very next night.

We were sleep deprived, frustrated, and mostly afraid if our bub was getting sufficient sleep throughout the night and during the day because of her sleep problems. Our paediatrician would say, “Oh, bub will somehow find the sleep they need” or “just feed them again”. Maybe that’s true, but as parents, we felt that our bub didn’t seem rested after a nap/sleep.

“Everything she said made absolute sense”

So we started looking for other options and we were lucky to stumble upon Jennifer’s profile. As parents, it’s not easy to put your trust in someone you don’t know for anything regarding your baby and her sleep problems. All the questions came into our mind. Will she use a common settling method and make our baby cry for hours? Is self-settling harmful for our bub? Are these reviews too good to be true? I doubt if this will work for us because we have tried all these things already!

We had a chat with Jen and spoke to her about our concerns, then we booked in for a consultation over the phone. Everything she said made absolute sense and the little things she told us to try had an immediate impact.

Looking through Jen’s experience, knowledge, and history, it felt like she was the perfect person to help us through the problems we were having. We booked in for the 3 nights program. Jennifer arrived on/before time on all three days to help us out, and she customised a program for us where she started with us 7 days before the night stay because we wanted to be as gentle as possible with our bub. This helped setup bub for an easier transition to the settling process.

Jennifer is such a friendly and empathetic person that our family immediately connected with her, and she shared with us a bulk load of knowledge that was not only sleep-specific but was helpful for other developments of our bub. We immediately realised the biggest fault that we were making was not realizing bub’s tired signs. This is why we have been rocking bub for hours, as bub was not sleepy to even start with!!!

“We wish Jen came to our lives sooner!”

The first day was amazing, Jen sat with us through everything we did, and helped us understand so many things that we took for granted. We put bub down to sleep, and within a total of 15 mins on an off low crying, bub self settled and slept. We actually ended up waking our bub at 6:30 in the morning! Which was a huge surprise and turnaround for us.

Jen shared secrets on how to get bub’s day time naps going and they worked for us on the very first day. By day 2 and 3, bub was sleeping through the night with no awakes and getting the daytime naps as well. The after support is great as Jen has been supporting us throughout to make sure everything stays in place. Jen has been there to help us through bubs’ teething phases and how to handle such situations.

It’s been a few weeks now and we are now well rested parents with a well rested and happy bub who sleeps through the night without any wakes and has very good day time naps. And in our case, all of this was achieved in the first two nights and it’s been a few weeks now and nothing has changed! Bye-bye baby sleep problems!

Also, she is a great conversationalist and we enjoyed her company during her stay with us. We wish Jen came to our lives sooner, but as the saying goes better NOW! (late) than never!. Thank you Jen for all your help and we wish you a healthy and happy life!

For medical advice, you should always seek the advice from your medical practitioner.

  • I agree to disclose any medical conditions to Jennifer, which my baby has or has had previously.

  • Any changes I make to my baby’s sleeping or eating arrangements are my decision and Jennifer will only make suggestions for change, of which I am responsible for choosing to implement.
  • It is my responsibility to contact Jennifer for my follow up support and send the sleep log information through to be assessed for feedback as frequently as suggested.

 

In-Home Cancellation Policy
To confirm any In-Home Program, the client will be required to pay a 25% non-refundable deposit to secure the booking. The remaining amount of the In-Home Program will be required to be paid on the day after Jennifer leaves your home. Any cancellations barring medical or other emergencies will forfeit the deposit. If  you cancel less than 48 hours before the scheduled visit, the full amount will be required, unless Jennifer can backfill your place with someone on the waiting list.

If your baby is a little under the weather and does not have a temperature, the program can generally proceed as planned. If your baby is sick with a temperature or has been diagnosed with a medical condition by a doctor, the program will be postponed until your baby is better. A doctors certificate may be requested.

Remote Program/Phone Consultation
To confirm the Remote Program or Phone Consultation Jennifer will be required to be paid in full before sleep plans are constructed and the phone consultation takes place.

Remote Program Cancellation policy
The Remote Program and Phone Consultations are non-refundable after the start of sleep work (i.e. when any sleep advice has been delivered to the client via email, text, phone).

Acts of God or suspected medical conditions
If an act of God, such as a fire, flood, earthquake or other natural calamity shall cause you to cancel the sleep services, Jennifer will require payment only for the time actually spent sleep consulting. 

If during the In Home program, Jennifer feels the consultation should cease due to an underlying or undisclosed medical condition, Jennifer will require payment only for the time actually spent in your home. In this case, to keep the situation fair on both parties, the hourly rate is reduced down from the normal sleep consulting fees (as per the program booked) and charged at $50ph. 

Doctor’s appointment
Jennifer requests that every client has an appointment with their doctor to ensure their baby is developmentally on track and fit for sleep training. Written medical approval may be requested for certain circumstances.
