I contacted Angelina around the time that I wanted my son to start sleeping in his crib in his own room and to ensure I have created appropriate sleep habits for future success. The guidance that Angelina gave me was invaluable! I, like most new moms,tirelessly researched and read a ton about sleep training, but Angelina showed me that a few habits I created were actually counterproductive and she helped me modify those areas. There is a lot of information online and in various books and articles that you can find regarding sleep training but the exceeding value in hiring Angelina as a sleep coach was not only her expertise in the area, but the support and guidance she provided! It is very comforting to know that anytime I have any questions or if my son regresses at all, Angelina is just a phone call away and that helps ME sleep a little more peacefully!

Red rimmed and bleary eyed, my husband and I were coming to dread night time, as well as nap time. During the first 3 months, our pediatrician had told us to never let our daughter “fuss it out.” As such, every time she cried, we did our best to make sure that we gave her everything she needed – milk, a fresh diaper – and countless hours of rocking her to sleep. Our night routine was continuously getting elongated, and we kept adding new things to get our little girl to sleep. After feeding and burping her, we’d swaddle her, give her a soother, turn on her “Sleep Sheep,” rock her and read to her for close to 2 hours to get her into sleep, and then as soon as we’d transfer her into her bassinette or crib, she’d wake up, and we’d have to start the process all over again. Each night, she’d wake up between 3-6 times, and, with the long process of getting her back to sleep; it meant almost no sleep for the two of us. We’d tiptoe around the house while she was sleeping, terrified to wake her up, and couldn’t get anything done, or spend quality time with each other. Her naps were erratic – some days she’d sleep the better part of the day, other days she wouldn’t sleep for even one minute, which resulted in a very fussy baby, and very frustrated parents.
We stumbled across Angelina's website while researching our options, and called her right away. We were both really skeptical, and felt that the process likely wouldn’t work for us. After speaking with Angelina, we booked our consultation and got ready to forge ahead. Leading up to “Night 1” my husband and I were dreading the “amount of crying” and “sleepless nights” we had been anticipating, but, we were so pleasantly surprised! The first night, our daughter only fussed for about 45 minutes, and learned to put herself to sleep without the multiple sleep props we’d come to use on her. The first night of the program, she slept better than she had the entire month leading up to the program. She took to the new night routine very quickly, and, although we’d gone in hoping to only feed her one time each night if necessary, she now typically sleeps for between 10-12 hours each night, and settles into her naps relatively seamlessly.
Angelina was amazing to work with. She was very knowledgeable, supportive and very prompt in replying to my multitude of questions each day. My husband and I keep saying that this program is the best money that we have ever spent. We are back to having the energy to truly enjoy playing with our daughter, and going back to our daily routines, and our little girl is so much happier, more playful and is reaching her developmental milestones now that she’s sleeping better also. I would highly recommend Angelina and her program to any family/person struggling to solve their child’s sleep issues.

After months of trying several different sleep methods I read without any success, we finally decided to contact a sleep consultant for help. I had heard from a few friends that they have had success with a sleep consultant so we thought we would give it a try. It was the best decision we made because after two weeks we started to see major improvements in our son's sleep. When we started with Angelina, I would either have to rock or nurse or anything else that would work in order to get my 9 month old son to sleep. We went into this with very little faith it would work after everything we had already tried, but it did!. Now I can put my son down in his crib and he's asleep within a few minutes and thankfully finally sleeping through the night!

To say that I was at the end of my rapidly fraying rope is an understatement... After 4 months of constant attachment I was ready for a baby who slept independent from me and for longer than an hour at a time. Like most I was sure I could figure his sleep out on my own with help from the internet,multiple sleep books and previous experience with my daughter. All that got me was disagreements with my husband on what was not working or what was the "right" way to do it . Contacting Angelina has been life changing for us. She is so knowledgeable and personable I always felt comfortable. And the fact that we now have a happy well rested baby brings us so much joy and a happier home. I can't believe we suffered as long as we did without Angelina's support!

We got in touch with Angelina almost a full year after our twin boys came along. Had we known how successful working with Angelina would be we would not have waited so long! We had spent months struggling to ween the boys off feeding during the night (I was getting up 6 times a night) and getting them onto a regular napping cycle during the day. The vicious circle of overtired babies (and parents) was taking its toll on the whole family. Despite having read countless books on sleep training and routines we just weren’t able to break the cycle.
Angelina went out of her way to accommodate us. We made the call to Angelina just before Christmas thinking we might only be able to tackle our sleep problems in the New Year. Sensing our desperation, Angelina offered to meet with us right in the middle of the holidays. Within minutes of our initial consultation we knew we had hired the right person. Angelina's knowledge and confidence gave us comfort that we could get things back on track within a few nights. We were willing to try anything.
The first night was rough, but with a number of minor modifications (stuff you don't learn from a book) the boys’ sleeping habits improved and by night three we had our boys literally sleeping through the night (6:30pm to 6:00am)! Over the next couple of weeks we were in daily contact with Angelina. Not only did she give us a plan, but she also gave us specific methods and individualized advice to perfect the boys' entire schedule. By the end of two weeks, the boys were sleeping 11-12 hours a night, daytime naps had become routine, and the boys’ moods had improved dramatically. It is amazing what proper sleep can do! Even our daughter is happier, now that she is no longer getting woken up in the middle of the night by her baby brothers.

After 3+ months of not getting any sleep, I reached out to Angelina as she came highly recommended through a friend. It was the best thing I could've done! There are SO many sleep training methods out there and I had become quite confused as to which one to follow. Having Angelina's expertise and her daily support through the 2 weeks was really invaluable. My husband and I have both learned how to incorporate healthy sleep habits for our little one which has eliminated any stress related to getting her to sleep. My only regret is that I didn't go through this process with our first baby!

Angelina was absolutely amazing! We were at the end of our rope. Our son was waking up every 30 minutes sometimes. He never slept through the night, let alone for 4 hours even. He was 16 months. We hadn't slept in over a year. We were walking around feeling intoxicated. Then we spoke with Angelina... She was able to alleviate our fears, almost like she could read our minds. We didn't want to hurt him emotionally or physically. But we knew it wasn't good for him or for us that he wasn't able to stay asleep. And it wasn't good for our older daughter that we were all so tired. Angelina's approach was perfect and non-judgmental. She customized it to our desires and stayed with us for the full ride. When it felt stressful or when we had questions, she was there to support us, encourage us and to provide solutions. She was professional, easy to understand, kind and helpful throughout the whole process. We just wish we'd reached out to her sooner! I highly recommend working with her if you're looking to sleep again
