What real parents say:

I wanted to thank you for all of your help. You've given me a priceless gift of knowledge that has changed the way I look at my boys' sleep patterns. I have learned to identify when my boys are actually tired and make the shifts needed to have the day flow more smoothly. I've noticed a difference in their moods. Life is different now! Thank you.

Following your advice gave us progress and hope. Suddenly I could hear my intuition again! I'm back in tune with my daughter, picking up on her needs and gently encouraging her. It was so important to me that her transition from co-sleeping to crib sleeping be gentle, and you helped us find the individual solution we needed!

Malia’s sleep support was a great common-sense approach that didn’t overwhelm an already overwhelmed new and worried mom. She helped me make sense of all of the confusion and helped me get my little sleepless boy back on track.
