This mother was beyond exhausted and the sleep situation was CHAOTIC!
Everyone was suffering! Mom had big dreams to fulfill with some personal/professional athlete goals and Dad was starting a new job. They needed their baby to sleep so they could sleep! Now their whole life has changed for the better!!! Mom won her athletic competition and Dad is loving and excelling in his new job!
-Jordan M. Massachusetts, Baby was 1 year old at time of Guilt-Free, Gentle Sleep Coaching
This mother was suffering from exhaustion and physical discomfort because her growing baby boy wanted round-the-clock holding and feeding. Dad wanted to help, but their baby boy had a tremendous "mom preference" and so mom was "on duty" 24/7.
I am happy to report that their thriving baby boy is now sleeping through the night and taking fabulous naps and dad can do the whole bedtime routine with great success...all "hands-free" and no more relentless bottle feeding and diaper changing in the middle of the night!! Listen to their story.
-Nalini and Shawn M. Colorado, Child was 6 months at time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching
This Dad was feeling so defeated and exhausted that he had resigned himself to thinking that NOTHING or NO ONE was going to relieve their stressful and relentless sleep struggles. After doing his research and talking to other happy clients, this dad committed to the Blissful Baby Sleep Coaching Process and now he is elated with his son's sleep success and full family transformation!
“I just want to thank you for what you've done for our family. I remember talking to some of your past clients over 2 months ago and still being skeptical that anything was going to change. That client told me that their experience was life changing. I thought..."man it would be really nice to tell someone else someday that we had a life changing experience too", but I had zero expectations and had resigned myself to accepting the fact that our life was going to suck for the next 18 months or so.
We are two months in and it truly has been life changing!!! Jacob goes to bed at 7ish pm and does not wake up until 6 or 7am. He no longer protests when we put him down in the crib. We kiss him goodnight, set him on his butt (because he likes to be put down sitting) and 5-15 mins later he’s asleep. Out for the night! His naps are amazing too! No protest, falls asleep in 5-15 and is asleep for 60-90 mins!
I was extremely anxious about taking a family trip to Lake Tahoe and disrupting his precious routine. I had a lot of fear about him regressing and going back to the way it was before your sleep coaching. I was really close to canceling the trip but I'm glad I didn't (my wife convinced me). We rented a full sized crib, brought all of the essentials (sound machine, humidifier, his sheets, 15 pacifiers, his lovey, crib bumpers...the works) and created a room as close to the one at home as possible and he did great!
We kept the schedule the same and he was able to sleep on his own in another room with no problem. He was able to nap that way too! It was incredible. I still had a great deal of anxiety throughout the entire trip but that’s my problem, not his. The car ride was great too. We scheduled our drive to and from Tahoe around his first nap and he made it pretty far before we had to stop and stretch our legs. And when we went back home he went right back into his schedule! I could tell he was happy to be home when we got back though. He had the biggest grin when we walked into his room when we got home.
He even slept great through a mild fever a few days ago! We did the same routine even though he had around 101 fever and he put himself to sleep with no problem!
Thank you again for helping us! It truly has been LIFE CHANGING! Please feel free to let any of your new clients reach out to us for an unsolicited, unbiased, completely objective testimonial. We would be glad to let anyone know that if this worked for us, it will work for anyone as long as you trust the process and commit to it.”
-Ken M, California, child was 10 months at time of Guilt-free, Gentle Sleep Coaching
This incredible athlete knew she needed to get sleep to get back in shape. She knew she needed help to get to her goals!
“Every new parent goes through some degree of sleep deprivation. 💤 For our family, night times got pretty out of hand. For her whole life, T woke up every hour to every 2 hours all night long crying and needing help going back to sleep. All night, every night, without respite. We resorted to co-sleeping, nursing 4-6 times a night, sleeping with T on our chests, and still she screamed all night long. We tried everything. All of us were miserable, our brains foggy, our bodies worn down. At around her 1st birthday, we gave up. We had been waking up about every hour for a year. We searched for help.
After a few short weeks of sleep coaching, with no crying it out and all listening to Tomi’s needs while being comforting and compassionate, she’s sleeping 10-11+ hours per night straight though.
What. A. Difference.
Being in charge of a little person is hard. Get professional help when you need it. I thought I needed to tough it out and that devastating sleep deprivation was the sacrifice of being a mom, when really I was just going about it all wrong.
Keep sleep coaching in mind, it was worth every penny to have our sanity again! 😊”
-Jordan M., Baby was 1 year old at time of Gentle Sleep Coaching
Getting good sleep was critical for this mother who was in the Operating Room as a Surgical Physician. She knew she needed the step-by-step, customized support to get fast results for their difficult sleep situation.
“Before meeting with Joanna, my husband and I were having a difficult time dealing with our daughter’s sleeping situation. She would be waking up every one to two hours at night, which eventually led to us feeling overwhelmed and thoroughly exhausted. Joanna gave us insight into how to manage our daughter’s sleep schedule, and now I can say our daughter is sleeping 12 hours through the night! We are so grateful and pleased with the results! Thank you Joanna!”
-Dr. Jain, Orange Country CA, Baby was 8 months at time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching
This incredible Cultural Strategist and Advocacy Leader has important work to do in the world.
After trying EVERYTHING on her own, her darling 15 month old daughter was STILL not sleeping through the night which was really taking a toll on her professional performance & business travel expectations and the situation was challenging to the whole family unit. After Janelle & her extended family collaborated with Blissful Baby Sleep Coaching and moved through a gentle and fully customized sleep plan and support, we reached all the family sleep goals and everyone is living happily-ever-after!
-Janelle T, Castle Rock, CO. Daughter was 15 months old and time of sleep coaching
This successful business owner was trying to do it all on her own. She was committed to on-demand breastfeeding, running her own successful service company from home while simultaneously care-taking her 15 month old daughter and cherished elder pup. Then, she realized she was just too tired to do it all. Here is here success story.
"Joanna was so knowledgeable, open and honest about the process and expectations that I felt very encouraged to proceed. As I had already tried sleep coaching on my own, before I looked for a sleep coach, I knew that I had reached the point where I did not know how to continue on my own. I knew then that I had made the right choice and that it is not wrong to need help and to find and accept that help. It is healthy and can be the best thing you do for yourself and your family to receive help from someone so educated, experienced and practiced in their area of expertise. You have a pediatrician right? a pediatric dentist? then why not an amazing Sleep Coac ? I am absolutely amazed at my daughter's progress in communication skills and willingness to go down for naps and bedtime peacefully and quickly. I could not more highly recommend Joanna. It will be the best money you ever spent SERIOUSLY and TRULY!“
-Brynn W. Hawaii, Child was 15 months at time of Guilt-free, Gentle Sleep Coaching.
Turning a "HOT MESS” into BLISSFUL SLEEP! This Pediatric Chiropractor reached out for export support when he had exhausted all his professional expertise to help his daughter sleep.
These parents did not expect that their 5th child would pose the ultimate sleep challenge. Their 6.5 month old daughter required “around the clock” nursing, holding, bouncing and rocking. Each parent was getting no more than 2–3 hrs of sleep in 24 hrs and their lives were endless “tag teaming” as they managed a household of 5 children plus a family Pediatric Chiropractic business. Life was BUSY and life was HARD. Luckily they reached out for help and now their daughter is sleeping 12 hrs a night and takes 3 naps a day…all HAPPILY in her crib. She is an entirely different baby…thriving and blissful!
-Child was 6 months old at time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching.
I would 1000% recommend working with Joanna of Blissful Baby Sleep Coaching.
“Working with someone who is so experienced and so well educated, who offers a gentle, compassionate, child empowering approach to sleep training is one of the most amazing experiences there is. In my ongoing experience working with Joanna, implementing the hundreds of tips she has given us for baby #1 and Baby #2, I have seen first hand the improvements sleep can make in a child’s life. Joanna gave us so much guidance that I would have never thought of on my own, and I am so thankful for her.”
-Kate T. Nashville TN, Child was 20 months old at time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching.
Read everything and still confused? This mom got the answers.
Have you read every book and every article and "tried everything" and your child still does not sleep through the night? This mom had the same experience, but instead of continuing the struggle, she asked for help and now her child is a magnificent sleeper. Here is her honest and detailed success story here.

Silicone Valley Tech Company Couple Were Living On Fumes Because Nothing They Did Helped Their Child Sleep Soundly. After Reaching out for Help, They Found the Sleep Support They Needed To Thrive As A Family.
Joanna was a blessing for us during a time of real struggle. Our little one didn’t sleep for more than 2 hours straight since he was born. It was at first manageable because we had copious amounts of help from family to get through the long nights but once all that help ended and we were both at work, it was quite clear this wasn’t sustainable. The biggest issue we had wasn’t with our son however, but with Mom. She wasn’t ready to let the baby (now a toddler at 13 months) cry himself to sleep in order to teach him those valuable skills. This is where Joanna came to the rescue. Like a super hero, she not only saved the day but taught us the skills to teach our baby to sleep. Her gentle sleep coaching methodologies jived with Mom’s parenting style and Dad loved the fact that now he could take part in the bedtime routine. The best part of the process was feeling so supported and cared for throughout. Joanna’s attention to Mom’s feelings and concerns really set her apart from any other consultant. The check-ins and the customized advice made the painful process into one of just growing pains rather than trauma. Joanna made herself available at all times (evening, while traveling) despite having family commitments of her own. Now our son sleeps through the night giving Mom and Dad the chance to do the same and send some quality together in the evenings. We are so grateful for having Joanna’s help and highly recommend her to anyone who is considering it!

- Ana R. Nashville, TN. Her son was 10 months old at the time of Guilt-Free Gentle Sleep Coaching
This mom says..."We Got Our Life Back"!! Its a Double Celebration! Successful sleep coaching for their child at 8 months and later after a un-expected 2 year old sleep regression.
"This wonderful family came to me when their son was 8 months old and literally would NOT SLEEP unless someone was holding him. They were exhausted and frustrated and knew they needed expert help. In a short period of time, we reached all their sleep goals and they felt supported and comfortable through-out the whole process. When their son had a 2 year old sleep regression, they did not hesitate to get help again and within 3 days we were back on track. Now with their 2nd child on the way, they know Blissful Baby Sleep Coaching is a place to reach out to for help, hope and quick results for a successful family sleep transformation. As this mom says.... "SLEEP IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT AND YOU DON'T REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU MISS SLEEP, UNTIL YOU FINALLY GET IT BACK AGAIN! CALL JOANNA!!!"

A. Albert, Texas, Son was 18 months at the time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching!
"To say we were exhausted is an understatement. Working with Joanna was a Game Changer". This mom tells her story of going from sleep-deprived to feeling confident and in-control so that she could successfully manage an unexpected relocation for her husbands work.
This elementary math teacher teacher was utterly exhausted from 6 months of no sleep. Her husband traveled all the time and her darling girl needed to be held continuously for every sleep cycle. Simply put, this mom could not keep up with the demands of care-giving and working and caring for herself while her husband traveled. Because she was a math teacher, this mom loved my guilt free, gentle methodology while also combining it my "data-driven" signature process that offers lasting results for healthy sleep habits.
- Wendy Lu, Northern California and Seattle, WA: Her child was 6 months old at time of guilt free, gentle sleep coaching.

This dad reached out for help and he worked one-on-one with me to successfully sleep coach their daughter so now everyone in the household is sleeping well and everyone is finally well-rested.
-K. Rao, Mountain View, CA. His daughter was 7 months old at the time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching
This couple had nightly battles with their 2 year old son, even in the co-sleeping environment.
They were were so exhausted and frustrated. They knew they could not solve this on their own. Dad was skeptical about coaching, but he knew things has to change. Mom really needed a break and she wanted her master bed back. Dad was really craving drama-free bedtimes and one-one-one time as a couple. Now, their son is now sleeping 11-12 hrs a night in his own room and the bedtime is easy and the nights and naps are peaceful. The good news is that now they are expecting their 2nd child and this happy news is proof of the ultimate success story of Gentle Sleep Coaching.
- Tami and Daniel D. Lakeside, CA. Child was 2 years old at time of Guilt-Free, Gentle Sleep Coaching.
This mom loved nursing and co-sleeping until the relentless wake-ups created an unsustainable sleep arrangement.
"Baby was co-sleeping her first months and I loved it—the closeness was so sweet and we were able to sleepily nurse with little trouble. It felt like heaven to be near her and feed her through the night. We had planned for this to be a short term arrangement though, we knew we would want our marital bed back and for her to be more independent. When we started working together our baby was going to bed with me at 10pm with wake ups every 2-3 hours. Within a month she was sleeping 11 hours through the night in her own room. Making that happen process-wise was tailored just to us— Joanna created a plan with and guided us through it nightly. As new parents this was awesome, but also as husband and wife it was incredible because we were entirely on the same page and didn’t have any middle of the night squabbles, hurt feelings or miscommunication. We were a united team thanks to Joanna."
-K. White, child was 6 months at time of guilt-free, gentle sleep coaching
Why aren't you asking for help?
"The question is: why NOT hire Joanna as your sleep coach? When I see bleary-eyed parents confused as to get their child to sleep, I want to yell, “Hire Joanna!” Joanna gave me my much-needed sleep back through encouragement and education. I wanted what was best for my child, and the piece I was missing was understanding what kind of sleeper I had and how to give her what she needed, which was different from her two older siblings. Don’t waste another night without a light at the end of the tunnel."
– Tiffany S., Ohio, 7.5-month-old baby
End confusion and self-doubt now!
"While books may give you ideas, it took a wonderful consultant like Joanna to turn the ideas into practice steps, hold us accountable and encourage our learning through the exhaustion and tears (parents especially). I wholeheartedly recommend Joanna to families looking to bring peace back to their sleep routines so that your child can have more consistent sleep. Better nights lead to better days and better days lead to better nights."
– Erica and Roy C., Houston, TX, 7-month-old twins
Sleep makes everything better!
"Before we started working with Joanna, I had to lay down holding my little one all night, every night, with her still waking every few hours to nurse almost up to a year. I knew things had to change but I didn't know where to start. What a difference Joanna made for both Emilie’s sleep and our family dynamic! Our little one now sleeps through the night, and we couldn’t be happier with gentle sleep coaching."
– Erin D., Houston, TX, 10-month-old baby
Attention working parents!
"If your baby is not sleeping through the night, call Joanna now! My 9-month-old son was still not sleeping through the night, and I was getting ready to start a new, demanding position at work. One night, in tears at 3 am, I told my husband I’d have to pass up this work opportunity because I knew I could not be who I needed to be at work and at home if the lack of sleep persisted. Without judgment, Joanna walked us through the concepts of Sleep Science, and completely explained WHY Kai was having such a difficult time. It only took us 3 nights to go from waking up 2 times a night, to solid sleep for 10+ hours. Several months later, everyone in the house is much happier, and I’m now 4 months into the dream job I’d have given up without Joanna’s help."
– Michaela A., San Diego, CA, 9-month-old baby
Your Birth Team has a new member: A Trained and Certified Sleep Coach
"I like to think of Joanna as another member of of birth team. It made a huge difference to get support from our pediatrician, midwives, and lactation consultant after our baby was born, and likewise it made a significant impact to have a knowledgeable resource and support person to assist us with sleep health. Our baby has learned key skills and we are all getting the sleep we need, so our whole family is functioning at a higher level, in better health and better moods. We will definitely be coming back to work with her when our family expands again!"
