Success
Stories

This business has given me the opportunity to do something I LOVE. It has allowed me to help moms who were at the point of exhaustion and reached out for help. I was able to walk along side them with a plan and some encouragement. In the end I got to hear these testimonies of how much better life felt now that everyone was getting the sleep they needed. It is amazing to know I helped a family to wake up feeling refreshed! Check out these success stories below!

"We went to Refresh Sleep Solutions when our 9 month old daughter was taking many hours to fall asleep. Often she wouldn't go down until at least midnight and she would be grumpy and tired the rest of the day. It meant no time without children and it was exhausting. We had a camping trip planned and were considering cancelling it because of my daughter's sleeping habits. After we spoke with Amy and developed a plan, our daughter slept through the night almost right away! The camping trip went smoothly and our daughter slept better than our 3 year old! We are so pleased now that our daughter is sleeping and only wish we had contacted Refresh Sleep Solutions sooner. Amy has great communication skills and kept in contact with us the whole time. Thanks so much, Amy!"

“Our daughter had been sleep trained by my husband and I when she was 7 months old. Things were going ok, but then suddenly after she turned 8 months, something changed. She started crying to sleep every night and would wake up at 5 or 5:30 am. We tried so many different things and could not get her to stop crying to sleep or waking up early. I was so sad because I did not know how to help my daughter. Plus, both my husband and I were exhausted from trying everything to help her. When I was talking to a close friend about this, she recommended Amy from Refresh Sleep Solutions. I quickly jumped at the opportunity to get professional help! After she gathered all the details about my daughter, she came up with an easy to follow schedule, provided one on one support and a weekly touch base to review how things were going. Within no time, my daughter stopped crying to sleep and started sleeping until 6:30-7 am! It was a miracle! Our daughter knew how to fall asleep, knew what to do, but we did not have the right schedule set up for her. Changing her nap times and pushing her bedtime later meant she was getting the right amount of day time sleep to help her night time sleep! Finally, we were all sleeping well again! Sansa is now 13 months and still following the same schedule and thriving! I cannot thank Amy enough for her support throughout this process! Not only was she an absolute joy to work with, but also I felt that she truly cared about me and my family overall. After working with Amy, our family could start enjoying life and having fun together again! We stopped stressing about sleep!”

"With my second child, I wanted to hire a sleep trainer, vs doing it myself. I was interested to know whether or not it made a difference seeing as though I sleep trained my first child on my own. Well, it did! I researched several different sleep trainers but ultimately chose Amy from Refresh as she was who I became most comfortable with. She is knowledgeable and efficient! She supported me basically 24/7 for 2 weeks (with a few questions before and after that period) to ensure Emmett got onto a schedule that worked for our family. He now sleeps 7pm-7am with no night wakings and goes to bed for naps and night time with zero (I mean zero) effort! Amy taught us how to get onto the 'eat - play - sleep' schedule and it’s helped us significantly! It’s been a whole month now and he hasn’t regressed whatsoever. We are one happy family! Thanks Amy!"

“Before working with Refresh Sleep Solutions, Nohl was unable to nap on his own or sleep for long periods at night. He consistently woke up wanting a bottle, soother or cuddle. Having 2 older children made it challenging to tend to Nohl. I was often tired from waking so much at night and it was hard to establish a routine during the day. I found myself giving into the crying just to settle him. I was exhausted all the time. I really wanted a routine. When I first sat with Amy, I knew I was making the right first step. Even though I am a mother to 3 boys, Nohl is my first child to be sleep trained. Sitting with Amy, listening to a plan and knowing she had sleep trained her own kids was encouraging. By day 2, Nohl was already sleeping through the night without a bottle, soother or cuddle. I now have more time for my older kids. I don't have to lay with Nohl like I did before, which ranged from 10 minutes to over an hour sometimes just to get him to sleep. I am so grateful for Amy's support. Nohl did struggle with his napping routine throughout our support period, but Amy was so encouraging and supportive. She asked her mentor questions and she never gave up trying new strategies. After two months, Nohl does now nap in his crib! I have a routine to my days and a lot more energy for my family."

"Before working with Amy, our son could have several naps (30 min to 3 hrs each time) in a day by laying on a pillow on our lap in a rocking chair or by lying with him; bedtime was late (approximately 10:30 pm) and required me to lay with him in our bed. There was also one late night feed between 3-5 am. We would try moving our son from our lap to his crib after a certain length of time to try to get him used to his own bed, but more often than not this would wake him. At some point, we just gave up and gave in to the lap napping. It was tough because of course, while he was napping, there was nothing else getting done. I had to align my bedtime with his. Although some comforting was required on the first night, it was encouraging to see our son get through it without a feed and it was nice to have our bed to ourselves again. As the first week progressed, we saw that he was adapting fairly well to the bedtime routine - he was sleeping longer and could sleep through the nights without needing to be comforted by mom or dad. We knew that we were doing the right thing for all of us. After three weeks, our son sleeps through the night in his crib, getting approximately 11 hrs. We are still working on lengthening his naps (under 45 mins). I can be more productive while he naps and enjoy evenings for me time as well as time to connect with my husband. Amy is very accessible, caring and understanding. She is also patient, knowledgeable, accommodating and supportive. I think the service she provides is fantastic! Thank you, Amy ❤ "

“My youngest, Ayla was a great sleeper for the first 8 months. The initial joy of co-sleeping turned into a trap and in spite of our efforts we couldn’t get our baby to sleep in her crib. To add to the matter, her sleeping habits changed once she turned 9 months, she was having a hard time falling asleep (with me, laying next to her sometimes for an hour each time), she was waking up at night wide awake and staying up for hours… I felt like my days completely revolved around trying to get her to sleep, with little success and abundance of frustration. I was very tired and very impatient with the rest of my family. After a stretch of several nights of little sleep I was ready to try something else. I called Amy with Refresh Sleep Solution. She created a simple, easy to follow schedule and gave us many helpful tips. She was very encouraging and daily reached out to check on the progress/challenges. I truly appreciated her firm reassurance. Within a week and a half, our lives have changed 180 degrees! Ayla naps on schedule, she falls asleep by herself often within minutes and sleeps throughout the night. We not only got our bed back, we got our evenings back, my days are predictable and easier to plan, and I’m a much calmer, happier mom. Thank you Amy!!!”

"We were stuck in a cycle of our newborn co-sleeping with me, resulting in my husband sleeping on the couch. We would try to put Iris in the crib or bassinet but she would cry and protest and because we were in survival mode I would pull her back into bed with me and my husband remained on the couch. This went on for close to 4 months before reaching out to Amy with Refresh Sleep Solutions. My marriage was suffering, my mental health was suffering and I was definitely not being the best mama I could be to my toddler and infant during the day. My husband would come home from working a 14-16 hour day and be able to do little more than fall asleep right away. We were both exhausted. Reaching out to Amy - not only was she able to provide me the tools to be able to help Iris get the restorative sleep she needed but also was able to help validate and normalize me while doing so and keeping me accountable to the plan when at times it felt like it would have been easier to go back to old habits. After the first night, when Iris slept in her own bed for the first time in 4 months and only woke up a couple of time as opposed to the numerous times in previous nights, I knew we were doing what was right for not only Iris but our family. Now Iris is sleeping through most of the night and is only up for 1 feed. Even if she wakes up more than this, more often than not, she is able to put herself back to sleep within a few minutes. My husband is back in our bed and we are all finally getting the sleep we had been deprived of. Working with Amy was the best thing for our family. She provided the support we needed in both a kind and assertive manner and because of this we are a more rested and happier household."

"A week before Boaz hit 3 months he had a big sleep regression, he went from waking up once between 10:00pm and 6:00am to waking 4-5 times a night (and not to feed). I started reading a book that talked about the importance of sleep for babies development and knew this wasn’t sustainable for Boaz or for me! It was time to start sleep training! I am soooo beyond thankful for the help Amy has provided. I always thought sleep training meant leaving your little one to cry their heart out and was so happy to learn it isn’t that at all! I got to sit with Boaz while he learned this new skill of putting himself to sleep and watch as he started to prefer napping in his crib to anywhere else! Within days he was back to waking only once a night (to eat), only now that once a night is between 6:30/7:30pm - 6:00-7:00am!! He is more refreshed, I’m more refreshed and it has allowed for me to spend more time and attention on my daughter and hubby in the evenings too, so everybody is winning!! Thank you Amy!!!"
