Sleep is an act of self love and the foundation of our health. How we attend to the basic needs in these early years prepares our children for a lifetime of self care.

Success Stories

sleeping babies…happy parents

100% of families can improve sleep by following through with Compassionate Sleep Solutions. Crying is the number one reason why parents DON’T tackle sleep issues.

• The no-cry sleep solution is a myth – for most babies.
• The “cry-it-out” solution is a deal-breaker – for most mommies.

We did the new protocol last night & definitely picked up on the cycling cry & we were able to allow her work thru it by herself last night 🙂 took about 12-15 mins? We cannot THANK YOU enough; the call yesterday was SO SO SO ENLIGHTENING. We both learned so much, it was definitely a mind-expanding experience for both of us. We are so grateful to you for sharing your expertise with us.

Dear Eileen,

I just wanted to thank you for your amazing advice. I put the sleep plan into action almost 2 weeks ago now, and on day 4 Henry went to sleep without crying and slept through the night, and has ever since then! Thank you for giving me the tools and support that I needed to make this necessary transition. My entire family appreciates it!

With thanks,

Laurel, Daniel, and Henry Scarozza

 Before I worked with Eileen and Compassionate Sleep Solutions, my sleep was so minimal that I didn’t know what else to do. My husband and I were getting 90 minutes of sleep at a time before my 4 –month-old would cry out for a feeding. He was barely getting 2 hours of sleep at a time. He never really slept well since birth, but we were reaching a breaking point and needed help.

I knew of sleep training and all of the books, talked with friends who did it, however I knew that I could not do it alone. I needed guidance.

My son was young, a preemie and a colicky baby. We were desperate and ready for consistent sleep. I found Eileen through an online search and my decision to work with her was validated by a friend and business owner in Boulder, Colorado. I was still hesitant, nervous, but also relieved that this might actually be the answer.

Eileen gave me exactly what I needed. A 20+ page written plan with all of the steps, email support and support phone calls. In addition, she offered me research and websites in which to do more reading.

Eileen is compassionate and genuine herself and was able to calm me down when I didn’t think I could continue with the plan. However, I realized that what I was doing wasn’t the “crying it out.” It was a supportive and caring approach. Eileen continued to reassure me that what I was offering my son was the gift of sleep, and the practice of “falling asleep.” I was there for him and he knew it. Now, my son wakes up happy in the morning, quietly cooing in his crib.

No, it is not perfect, but most nights are great. My 6-month-old is now capable of sleeping 12-hour stretches. Although, a good night is a 7 to 8 hour stretch of sleep and I can live with that!

As an anxious, first time mother, Eileen was able to support me entirely. I could not have done this without this program and her guidance along the way. I am blessed to have found her.

My daughter, Julia, will be 2 next month. We did your comprehensive plan last fall and have had great success with both naps and nighttime sleep. My husband and I always say that it’s the best money we’ve spent on anything child-related!

Eileen,

Thank you so much for all your help. We followed the sleep plan for Michael and he is not only putting himself to sleep at night but has slept an 8 and 10hour stretch!

Thanks

I am sure like most parents, we came to Eileen in a moment of desperation. Our daughter was 9 months old and waking every hour to two hours in the night to be nursed back to sleep. During the day, I would hold her and bounce on an exercise ball for up to an hour until she’d fall asleep for a 30 to 45 minute nap. I was sleep deprived and hurting physically and mentally. Everything my husband did or didn’t do became a point of contention and looking back, I really just needed some sleep. The Cry It Out technique seemed to be everyone’s go-to solution. I finally tried it and much against every fiber in my maternal being, I let my daughter cry for 2 hours straight. She was still going strong when I went in and nursed her to sleep, feeling totally demoralized and wanting to cry myself.

Then a friend told me about Eileen Henry. I googled her, talked to my husband and decided to give her a try as a last resort. From our first conversation, I knew that we were on the right track. She talked about empowering my daughter to learn how to fall asleep on her own and giving her the confidence from the beginning that she was capable of tackling challenges. She was no nonsense and said our daughter was absolutely capable of learning to fall asleep on her own, but were we capable of letting go? When I saw our sleep plan, I knew I could still be an engaged and empathetic mother in this process. That was huge for me.

The first night she cried for three 20 minute cycles and woke up for one nursing. This was incredible! Even more incredible, the second night she cried for two 20 minute cycles and then fell asleep till 6am! I felt the heavens had opened. By the third night, she went down without any crying and we all slept soundly till 6am. Then we started working on naps. Within a couple days, my daughter was taking two 2 hour naps during the day and sleeping through the night. We have been on a solid sleeping track ever since. Three months ago I gave birth to a second daughter and from the very beginning we gave space to our infant to continue to fall asleep on her own. We got slightly off track at 2 months but with a little correction and advice from Eileen, she’s sleeping through the night already. We really owe our night time peace to Eileen’s guidance! I’m so grateful for her.

I just want to echo Annika. I have literally told 15 people about you saying it’s probably the best money we have ever spent on parenting. We really think you have such a great mix of evidence, nurturing advice, and honesty when you’re just giving us anecdotal information. It made it much easier for me, at least, to buy into it. And I can’t imagine anything being more effective. I really can’t stop talking about it to anyone who will listen and some who won’t (Annika will attest to that)!

SLEEP SOLUTIONS

Who benefits from phone support

  • First-time parents.
  • Second/third-time parents whose second/third child is not sleeping like the others did.
  • Difficulty with naps or napping strikes. Toddlers have far more exciting things to do rather than rest.
  • If one or both parents have insomnia, anxiety, depression, or mood instability due to stress or mood instability.
  • If you tried another sleep program and then went back to using a sleep crutch to “put your child to sleep.”
  • If there is still crying after one week of implementing your sleep plan.
  • If you still have not implemented your sleep plan because you are too afraid of how your baby will react.
  • If you are about to transition your toddler out of the crib and into a bed.
  • If you transition your toddler into a bed and she becomes “free-ranging” in the middle of the night,
  • If your toddler has hijacked the ritual at night and you are trying to meet one more request in hopes that this will quell his insatiable appetite so that he will go the F to sleep.

If you are ready to make changes but not sure which package is best for you - then lets chat!

This call is to get to know one another and ensure that I am a good fit for your family.
