Our daughter was 6 months old when our pediatrician said we needed to think about sleep training our baby. She was only sleeping in one, two, if we were lucky, a three hour stretch and we had been trying for two months to transition her from a Rock and Play to her crib. She was also only napping in her swing and was still nursing 3-4 times at night. When I told my doctor I was worried about letting her cry she handed me Ronee’s card. I immediately went home and called her and in just one conversation I felt better. My husband and I met with Ronee to go over our customized plan and we were ready to begin that night. Ronee made a plan based on what I was comfortable with…my daughter took to it so quickly we jumped ahead! Within a day my daughter had weened herself off her night feedings and was putting herself back to sleep without our help. Her daytime naps have helped her tremendously and we haven’t used the swing since! It has been a life changer for us. Ronee helped us to understand, establish and stick to a routine that works for our baby and our comfort level. She adjusts it as needed and is there for you when you have questions. Her support made this a positive experience and I would tell anyone who has a baby that isn’t sleeping to call Ronee because you and your baby need sleep! I am so beyond grateful to Ronee and Sleeptastic Solutions. I’m so glad our doctor recommended Ronee!
My husband and I always assumed that our son just wasn’t a good napper/sleeper. People told us, “he’s just a baby,” “it will get better when he’s older,” or “he’s just hungry.” Well it got to a point (around 5 months) where I wasn’t sleeping more than 2 hours at a time, he was waking up anywhere from 2-6 times a night, and he was taking 4 short naps a day. We decided to hire Ronee after a referral and phone consult, and we never looked back. Our son proved to be pretty difficult, but Ronee was there to support us through every step of sleep training (I could not have mentally done sleep training without her support… I was too overwhelmed and sleep deprived myself ). We had great means of communication, and I always felt that she knew exactly what to do/suggest. We had some rough nights, but now our little guy is taking great naps & sleeping much better at night. He’s still a work in progress, but we feel more confident in what we need to do to help him sleep better!
“Because of this fantastic woman, my daughter and I get a full nights sleep! I’d highly recommend giving her a call if you need help getting your child to sleep!”
My baby Vinny sleeps so much better for naps now! He was a complete swing addict but with patience and consistency he weaned off the swing completely and now does all naps and night sleep in his crib! Ronee knows the inns and outs of sleep! Highly recommend!
Sleeptastic Solutions changed our lives. Our sweet 10 month old daughter was in the habit of nursing to sleep and would also wake many times in the night, needing to nurse back to sleep. After trying some sleep training methods on our own with no success, we had just accepted this as part of having an infant. We were amazed when after 2 nights of Sleeptastic Solutions our daughter slept in her own room for 12 hours straight without a peep. Commitment to our sleep plan has created an environment for her where she can get the rest she needs and wake each morning happy and energized. Needless, to say we are also beyond happy and energized!
Ronee helped my husband and I to get our baby on a healthy sleep schedule. We contacted her when we needed guidance in ironing out some tough spots while sleep training. Ronee was so thorough in giving her advice. She knew exactly what to say to assert what needed to be done, while also being supportive and respectful of our situation. She clearly knows this stuff as everything she suggested worked. Our baby is sleeping soooo much better and we finally have some routine and balance in our lives. Ronee was extremely professional, caring and knowledgeable and I’d recommend her to anyone who wants a happier baby!
I tried everything to get my now 9 month old to sleep more. I was tired, my husband was tired, the baby was tired, even the dog was tired. My baby is now sleeping 11-12 hours a night. I am so glad Ronee found me and fixed our issues when I was starting to believe that so little sleep would just be a part of life. She worked around our schedule and answers questions specifically and timely. I encourage anyone having a sleep issue or breastfeeding issue to talk to Ronee. Do not feel guilty about wanting better sleep for your family! Even if you feel like you are doing everything right and can’t figure out the problem, Ronee will help you smooth out the wrinkles. Ronee saved us!
I decided to call Ronee when I finished reading yet another “sleep” book. Each book, blog, support group, peer and yes…even strangers’ advice ALL contradicted each other. The difference in opinions and styles of sleep training had me completely confused if and where to begin this crazy journey. I knew I needed someone who was going to walk me step by step through the process and help me as difficulties came up. I knew I also needed someone who was going to be patient and kind and who was going to listen to me. Ronee was all that and more! I loved the fact that she has a background in infant/child development and is a certified lactation specialist. Ronee helped easily guide me through this thing called “sleep training”. It was huge knowing she was just a phone call or text message away. She helped give me the confidence needed to assist my baby girl to get the sleep she was lacking. Since Ronee’s help I have gained my nights back to get things done and spend time with my husband! I can now officially say that my daughter is a wonderful sleeper!!! She has been so happy now that she is getting the sleep she needs! I will definitely be reaching out to Ronee as things come up in the future. If you have been thinking about using Ronee as your Sleep Consultant…Just Do It! It will change your life for the better! I promise!
Isn’t it funny how we, as parents, focus on our baby’s sleep? Other parents ask us if our baby is a good sleeper; we read books about positive sleep habits; we invest in items like swings, bouncers, and rockers to help our little one sleep; and, we know that, when our baby is cranky and crying, it is often because she is over-tired. However, for as much as we care about our baby’s sleep and pay attention to our baby’s sleep, we fail to do so for ourselves. Why is this?! We, as parents, realize that our children are cranky, tired, and more likely to get sick when they are not getting enough sleep; yet, we fail to make the same association for ourselves and we fail at making sure we get enough sleep. After a full year of feeling run-down, tired, and honestly a little sad, I finally said, “Enough is enough. I NEED sleep. I cannot get through one more week without it.”
My daughter was 12 months old, she was still nursing every 1-2 hours at night (and during the day), she would only sleep in her swing or in bed with me, AND I had a three year old to take care of during the day. Let’s talk about insanity! After interviewing a couple sleep consultants (and reading reviews like this), my husband and I decided to give Ronee’s Sleeptastic services a try. Well, guess what? It’s been two weeks and my daughter now goes to bed around the same time every night, sleeps for 11-12 hours straight in her crib without so much as a peep, and takes regular, long naps! Even better? I am no longer trapped in the house every night by my darling breastfeeding baby; my husband and I have started going on dates again! Believe me- staying in and going to bed to sleep all night long with no interruptions is also a glorious feeling! Dear mother or father who is reading this, stop putting yourself last. You really do deserve sleep, too; and, you truly will feel like a brand-new, happier, energized person when you get it. The best part is- it’s achievable. You would hire a personal trainer if you were struggling to meet your fitness goals, right? It’s time to hire a sleep consultant to meet your sleep goals. Your baby will thank you for it, too; a full night’s sleep feels good to EVERYONE. One more thing- I believe in attachment parenting. This is probably why I waited a whole year to contact Ronee; I was so afraid of letting my baby cry and had heard horror stories about the damages of sleep training.
Sleeptastic Solutions is NOT the type of sleep training one needs to fear. Our sleep plan actually involved us comforting our daughter every step of the way through presence, touch, and verbal reassurance. Yes, there was a little bit of crying; but, parenting comes with crying- my daughter also cries when she receives vaccinations, when I am tending to her older brother and cannot pick her up that exact moment, and even when I am changing her diaper at times. I am not going to stop doing all of these healthy and normal things because she cries. Do not let the fear of a little crying prevent you from seeking out a wonderful resource to help your family have better nights and, consequently, better days! Ronee is just amazing at what she does. She is confident, well-spoken, organized, kind, helpful, and truly cares about the well-being of your child. I recommend her a thousand times over to anyone struggling because their child is not sleeping. In fact, my husband calls Ronee’s sleep services the “best money he has ever spent”. Call and make a consultation today; thank me later!
