What Well Rested Parents Say

"Nakayla was a literal answer to prayer for me and my family. After my first born, I thought we would have no problem sleep training my second... but after months of methods not working - I felt drained emotionally, physically and mentally! I was referred to Nakayla by a friend, and was skeptical if she would have anything new I hadn't tried. But I felt open to trying anything - and man, am I thankful I kept an open mind! She gave me tools and tips I honestly didn't think my son would follow, but he ended up thriving under! Nakayla's support and guidance was amazing for this tired mom. I felt seen, and validated by her. She catered the training to our schedule and lifestyle, as well as my son's temperament. I can't recommend her services enough! If you are struggling with sleep training - I would 100% guarantee this is worth the investment for a happy baby/mommy/daddy sleep schedule!"

"I can’t thank Nakayla enough for what she did for my family. Last year, I had a baby when my oldest was 2.5. At the same time, he had started climbing out of his crib, so we converted him to a toddler bed. That’s when all of our problems started. Initiallly, he just wouldn’t go to sleep on his own, but that quickly turned into he wouldn’t sleep alone - at all. Fast forward a year and my 3.5 year old has been in my bed and won’t go to sleep independently. Add in the fact that I’m pregnant with my 3rd and I was starting to feel helpless. Insert a literal angel - Nakayla. She has been so supportive and informative since the beginning. We had a wonderful video call and my son even got to talk to her! We implemented our plan a week ago and he has been falling asleep independently AND staying in his bed all night. I highly recommend her and her services!!"
