Little Sleepers' SUCCESS STORIES: Sofia and Jeremy
1. How was Sofia’s nighttime sleep before you found Little Sleepers?
In a word: miserable! Sofia was very difficult to get to sleep. She required being held to fall asleep, which was nice for the first few weeks, but not sustainable. Naps were also a real struggle. Sofia needed a lot of help to fall asleep; her inconsistent naps were also a detriment for her, as she was cranky and tired all day.
2. What did you try before you hired Little Sleepers and how did you find us?
We tried everything before we hired Little Sleepers!! We tried different swaddles, different schedules, approaches; nothing worked. One of my best friends in NYC worked with Annika as a sleep consultant and highly recommended her so we decided to go for it.
3. How were your child’s sleep issues impacting your family before you worked with Annika?
Sofia has an older brother who is full of energy, so we had little downtime during the day. Being sleep deprived was truly affecting our day-to-day and mental health.
4. What is unique about raising a child in New York City? How did those factors play into your child’s sleep schedule or issues?
Raising a kid in NYC is amazing. There’s so much to do and children are exposed to so many great things. The challenge to living here is that space can be tight, which makes sleep training really important as any middle of the night crying wakes up the entire household. Working with Annika for us was a true blessing as our children shared a room, which meant our toddler was constantly being woken up by our infant daughter. Annika did a great job of working within our circumstances to manage that.
5. By the end of your four weeks of working with Little Sleepers, how was Sofia doing?
Sofia was sleeping through the night (falling asleep on her own) and napping like a champ! It was so much easier to manage our schedules and she was so much happier as she was properly rested! Life now is so much better! We’re ALL rested :)
6. What would you tell another parent who is thinking of working with Annika Brindley?
Do it. It’ll be one of the best investments you’ll ever make. Annika is more than a sleep consultant; she truly is such a wonderful source of wisdom and advice. We are so happy to have found her!
1. How was Jeremy’s nighttime sleep before you found Little Sleepers?
Oh my goodness, Jeremy’s sleep was TERRIBLE before Little Sleepers! He was 6
months and still waking up 4x+ times a night!! It was truly a nightmare! And naps?
What naps?!!! Ha! He would only sleep when being held and it was totally inconsistent. He was overtired and grumpy -- and so were we!!
2. What infant sleep resources did you try before you hired Little Sleepers?
We had worked with TWO other sleep consultants and read ALL the books we could get our hands on! Honestly, my biggest regret is that we didn’t use Little Sleepers earlier. The first consultant we used was very affordable but just a 45-minute session and literally did not make a difference at all. The second consultant was more expensive but not much better -- it was a several hour session with email support after. It didn’t help us! We were stuck, miserable and TIRED!! I wish we hadn’t wasted our time on cheaper consultants -- they were a waste of time and money! Only Annika really changed our lives by providing us the gift of sleep!
3. How were your child’s sleep issues impacting your family before you worked with Annika?
The exhaustion was making us CRAZY!! We both work full time at demanding jobs and were barely keeping it together without rest. It impacted our jobs and our marriage -- both very negatively. We were both worn out and couldn’t even really enjoy our time with our new baby because we were so worn out and grumpy! Frankly, we were both
pretty agitated with each other and spread super thin!!
4. What made you choose Little Sleepers as your sleep consultant?
We spoke with others who had worked with Annika and they explained how helpful she was and how much support she provided to make sure the baby really learned to sleep! We also were really impressed with Annika and her approach and experience. We sent her diagrams of Jeremy’s room and she gave step-by-step direction, which is exactly what we needed!
5. What is unique about raising a child in NYC? How did those factors play into your child’s sleep schedule or issues?
NYC is an awesome place to raise children -- it’s incredibly stimulating and diverse! It absolutely cannot be beat! Our kids see live music in the park every weekend -- sometimes performed by semi-professional musicians! That said, quarters can be tight and noisy! We live in a small apartment and we were a bit self-conscious about what our neighbors would think about the baby crying! Annika helped give us the confidence to make the right choices for our family and helped coach us about how we could share with our neighbors what to expect!
6. By the end of your four weeks of working with Annika, how was Jeremy doing?
He was sleeping and napping like a champ! Our family life had taken a HUGE turn for the better!!! We were able to enjoyJeremy as a baby -- and each other! Honestly, it was a huge, huge change in such a short period of time!! Especially after having worked with two other sleep consultants unsuccessfully, we were skeptical. Turns out, we just needed Annika’s approach!!
7. What was your biggest win after working with Little Sleepers?
Being able to have a date night after Jeremy was in bed!! This may not sound like a parenting win, but connecting as a couple when you have a baby is so hard! Finding time for each other -- and for other friends, and theater, and dinner and just having a life -- because we knew Jeremy would sleep soundly was a huge win. It felt like we had gotten our lives back! We are all so much happier to be well rested and have full and balanced lives! The other thing that was great about working with Annika was learning how important it is as parents to set boundaries!!! Jeremy is 5 years old now, and we continue to use this lesson.
8. What do you like best about living in NYC?
The amazing diversity!!! We love being in such a vibrant place with so many different kinds of people. It’s awesome. - Irene and Zeke
