Our 4 month old son was taking 20 minute naps, waking up 2-3 times per night and would not let me put him in his crib until he was totally sleeping. Night after night, we were completely sleep deprived. I reached out to our pediatrician. He gave us his sleeping “formula”. It didn’t work so he suggested we contact Angela from Babes in Sleepland. I thought to myself, I’m a mom, I have a 4 year old, I should know what to do and my pride took over. So, I decided a sleep coach wasn’t for me. Well, finally I felt so helpless, and contacted Angela. We worked together for 10 days and Angela helped me solve every problem as it arose. Angela helped me co-ordinate a nap schedule that allowed my son to take naps in his crib, even though we would be challenged with my 4 year old daughter’s pick up and drop off school schedule. What I also found so appealing about Angela, is that she respected me as a mother. Her guidance kept me empowered. And she has the sweetest most soothing voice! With Angela’s guidance and support, our 6 month old baby has a regular and consistent sleep schedule.

I found Angela late at night on Facebook, while I was desperately searching for help with my then 7 month old son. Austin was born a few weeks early and was underweight, so I had to feed him every hour or two around the clock from birth. Once we got his weight under control, my son was so used to feeding all the time that he wouldn’t sleep without feeding throughout the night. I contacted Angela and she not only helped me break the bottle habit, but also informed me of other tricks and hints to help him sleep. Getting him on a strict sleeping schedule was a priority, and by following Angela’s instructions, Austin was sleeping better within a few days. Through the training we broke all of the “bad” habits. Because of Austin’s age, he was reaching milestones that would affect his sleep schedule after the training was over. Angela didn’t leave me high and dry after training, she helped me to understand what was coming and how to handle the changes. Now I know how to adjust his naps and bedtime as he grows and changes. I couldn’t be happier and more grateful to Angela!

Before we hired Angela my husband and I were miserable, exhausted, anxious first time parents. Chloe at 5 months was waking half a dozen times or more every night and the only way she would go back to sleep was for me to get up and feed her. I was running on months and months of 4 hrs of broken sleep each night, I was a basket case and our relationship was strained. What I needed was for someone to tell me what to do, tell me when and how to put her down, and be there for support. This is exactly what Angela did for us. With Angela’s experience and expertise, Chloe began napping well each day and sleeping through the night in just a matter or days!!! Chloe now 6 months is for the most part sleeping 12+ hours a night, napping 2-3 good naps a day and all with minimal fussing. We are so pleased and would recommend Angela to anyone at the end of their rope. Thank you Angela for allowing us to enjoy our baby again and for saving our sanity and more than likely our marriage.

My husband and I were exhausted. Our little girl only slept for brief periods of time and always depended on us to get her back to sleep. We knew how exhausted and overtired she was, and things were not going to get better on their own. We contacted Angela and after speaking with her about sleep training and how she could help us the way she has helped countless others, we hired her. Angela taught us how to empower our little girl by giving her the skills she needed to get the consolidated and restorative sleep neccessary for her to be happy and healthy. She now sleeps all night and has settled into a nap routine. Now the three of us are getting the sleep we need. Thank you Angela!

Angela Walsh was the best thing that could have ever happened to our new family. My daughter stopped sleeping properly at 4months and this lasted until 8 months. At this time she might take 20 minute naps twice a day and slept only 3-4 hours per night. We were so overworked and over-stressed. We ended up in her pediatrician’s office at least every other week since she remained sick. Being blamed that it was our fault, that we should just deal with it. WRONG.
I emailed Angela Walsh at around midnight, with my daughter screaming her head off, me in tears. Even at such a late time, she got in touch with me within an hour. After working together, my daughter had a full night’s sleep – for the first time ever. Two days versus four months of blaming ourselves, worrying day and night and being ready to hit the floor. Thank you, from our family to yours, thank you. I would
recommend you to anyone, and everyone who would listen. You’re amazing, and for an over-stressed mom, you gave me the solutions to pull myself and my family back together.

Thanks to Angela, I never thought I’d see the day when my son slept through the night! She made a miracle happen. My son went from 30 minute naps and waking every hour of the night to napping 1-2 hours at a time and sleeping through the night. She custom tailored a routine that worked for my son and our family and she was so flexible and approachable during the entire process. Angela’s sympathy, understanding and expertise was nothing less than stellar. She didn’t let my husband and I go through it alone. She was there every step of the way with us. I am very grateful she was there for our family and helped us transition to nights filled with sleep instead of the frustration we had grown accustom to. Thank you Angela!

Angela brought sanity back into my life! After two years of sleepless nights, my daughter, went from several night wakings a night to none in just the first day of starting our program with Angela. She’s wonderful, supportive and always there when you need her! I’m so grateful to have found her and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Angela.

As a working mom with two kids, I went into a panic when my 18 month old daughter, Charlotte, started to sleep poorly. I depend on my sleep as you can imagine as does my husband. I called Angela and we began to work together to get Charlotte back to her routine. Angela was a lifesaver!!! She was patient with me and we worked together on a daily basis to get Charlotte back to being a great sleeper. Over a two week period, I would email Angela and speak with her on the phone whereby Angela and I would work together to figure out (a) what were the issues, and (b) what time Charlotte should take her naps and go to bed. Angela also visited my home and assessed Charlotte’s environment. Angela provided me with sound and practical advice. And now, Charlotte is back to being a well rested, happy child— and so are her parents!!! I had such a positive and productive experience working with Angela Walsh.

As a new mom struggling with sleep issues and waking up every two hours to a hungry baby, Angela was a huge help in teaching me ways to help not only myself to get the sleep I needed, but also my son.
After putting Angela’s techniques to use, we had a baby who went from several night wakings to only one waking a night! Angela was full of tips and helpful information and was sensitive to my beliefs as a parent. She was a great help and we are so lucky to have worked with her!

Taking care of a newborn can have a steep learning curve. I learned quickly that my baby enjoyed sleeping in her carrier during the day. This was great for the first few weeks, but the novelty soon wore off and it became cumbersome and tiring.
Angela helped my daughter make the transition to sleeping in her bassinet, and also helped to clarify the basics of baby sleep cycles. Her sleep habits have greatly improved and she is an alert and happy baby. I am so grateful for Angela’s help and would recommend her services to anyone who has questions or problems around their baby’s sleep.

Angela was so helpful to me in my early attempts to sleep train my daughter; she was quick to respond, reassuring, empathetic and incredibly patient! Since I was dealing with my own sleep deprivation, I appreciated that she always sent me a recap of our conversations in an email after we spoke. Her guidance was always clear and practical. I credit her with getting our sleep journey started on the right foot. Thank you Angela!

As the mother of a four-month old boy and a three-year old boy, I needed help getting my baby on a good napping and nighttime sleep schedule. Angela from Babes in Sleepland was there for me. We worked together for two weeks and in that time she explained the elements of healthy sleep and provided me with a workable sleep plan for my son.
Angela was a great support; I found her to be reliable, knowledgeable and supportive through the entire process.

Working with Angela from Babes in Sleepland, our daughter Violet has gotten so much better in just a week’s time. She has broken the association of nursing and sleeping, and the learning curve of self soothing is being accomplished.
Our whole household is so much happier, and Violet too!. She’s been so full of smiles and I feel liberated. Now we can fall head-over-heels in love with her. When you are sleep-deprived, it’s hard to be truly happy to see your child in the morning when you have been hanging out with them all night!
Angela, thank you for your support during all these changes. Your business certainly fills a gap that sleep-deprived moms, dads, babies and families need. With your training and expertise, you are able to take care of moms to get them and the whole family sleeping.
I really appreciate what you do and how you have helped our family and made such a difference in our lives.
Thank you Angela!

I thought I knew how to sleep train, I did it myself with my first son. Read all the books, had him on a schedule, and taught him how to self soothe. But with my second son, nothing was working. He wouldn’t take a bottle, and breastfed on and off all night long. I was at my wits end!
I didn’t think anyone could help, but then I called Angela. She was great! After working with her, my son can now self-soothe, doesn’t eat at all throughout the night, and sleeps so much better!! AMAZING! Angela was so helpful and it was so great to be able to contact her with the smallest question or concern.
Thank you Angela!

Before starting work with Angela on my 6 months baby sleep, I could not believe it would be even possible to teach our little daughter to almost sleep through the night. With Angela’s valuable and attentive guidance it actually happened! I wrote Angela every day my latest night experiences. Angela helped my husband and I to overcome our fears of hearing our daughter cry. Step by step she guided us what we are going to do next to improve our daughter’s good night sleep habits. And her every advise has miraculously worked. Our daughter for the first time started sleeping long stretch hours from 7pm to 2 am, then wake up again at 3 or 4 pm but would settle herself back to sleep in about 10 minutes or so. We did not even had to go in to soothe her anymore. Previously our daughter kept waking up every 2 hours for feeding and with sleep training it narrowed down only to one feeding at night!!! It is a hard process, but when you know that a knowledgeable sleep expert is behind you and you are not harming your baby, it gives you power and confidence to keep going and finally get the result. Now my daughter feels more rested, does not have gases at night because of frequent feeding, finally eats during the day and not the night, and I feel like a normal person and not a zombie any more.
Thank you Angela!
