What people are saying about their sleep coaching experience at Bedtime Beginnings, Toronto Ontario’s leading Sleep Consulting agency.
“2 years ago Brooke helped us get our 7 month old sleeping through the night and napping independently. When we found out that we were expecting again we knew that we wanted to work with Brooke right from the beginning this time to give our daughter the gift of sleep as early as possible. We are so happy that we did! By the time Amelia was 4 months old she was napping independently and sleeping through the night. We are SO grateful for all of Brooke’s support during those first few months and for guiding us in using gentle techniques to teach Amelia the skills she needed to get the sleep that she needs. We would recommend Brooke to anyone wanting to improve their child’s sleep!”

“What would Brooke say?” This is the phrase I found myself using over and over as we were going through the sleep training experience with our little one. Before starting, we were working so hard to get our baby to sleep – rocking, walking around, bouncing on an exercise ball – the list goes on. It was exhausting, and I found myself getting somewhat anxious when I knew sleep time was approaching – especially when I was tired and didn’t feel like I had it in me to put him to sleep. Like many mothers out there, I was very nervous to start this process. Will this harm him long term? Will he be damaged neurologically ? Brooke understood all of my concerns and put me at ease. She gave me research articles to read, answered every single question I had and empowered me to be able to start this process. Knowledge is power and once I learned about sleep from Brooke, I came to understand that as parents, it is not our job to put our son to sleep. We have to teach him to put himself to sleep. Brooke gives you the tools and the confidence to help you along the way. Needless to say, I worried for nothing – with Brooke’s methods, you are not leaving your baby alone to cry. You are right there with your baby, supporting them along the way. It almost feels like magic when they fall asleep on their own. I feel proud of my son for learning how to do this! Now that Benjamin is sleeping 12 hours a night and taking great naps – he is a happier, more calm baby. All of those times he was fussing, I always thought it was hunger, or gas and it turns out….he was simply just tired. This process works and the the most important thing that you can do as a parent is be consistent. If your babe is having a hard time always ask yourself: ‘ what would Brooke say?’ The good news is – she is right there to answer your questions, but it’s up to you as parents to put in the work and stay consistent. You and your baby can do this! I promise!

Well after 5 nights in a row of sleeping through the night, I think it is safe to say that Dayne is sleep trained!!! We couldn’t have done it if it wasn’t for Brooke Hohenadel sleep consultant for Bedtime Beginnings who planned it all out for us and walked us through the whole process. In just 1 and a half weeks we went from laying beside Dayne in a twin bed until he fell asleep which some nights took up to two hours, then getting up usually twice through the night when he woke up and laying down with him again (or often times just stay all night in there). Tonight I did our planned out bedtime routine, I laid him in his crib said I love you and left. He gave one little cry and was out!! It’s amazing! I couldn’t be happier. Brooke you have helped our family so much! I recommend her to anyone who has a little one who doesn’t like to sleep.

“I feel like our life was pure chaos! Being first time parents we didn’t really know what to expect. We figured we would have a couple months of sleepless nights. When our son was 6 months old and still not sleeping through the night and barely napping through the day it started to really affect all aspects of our life. Because our whole family wasn’t getting any sleep it made for very long days and nights. I felt as though I wasn’t being the best mother or wife I could be. This has impacted our life greatly. Honestly no words can describe how positive it has been for our whole family. We feel like ourselves again. You don’t realize how much sleep impacts your life until you don’t get it any more. I would say the biggest change is that my son is happier! Now that he gets the rest he needs he is able to excel in all other areas of his life. Sleep training your baby isn’t as scary as it sounds! I would have done it a lot sooner if I had known that. Working with Bedtime Beginnings was an amazing experience because it gave us the tools and information we needed to help our son sleep on his own. He is now able to fall asleep on his own and put himself back to sleep if he wakes during the night. He can also do this in different environments, which still allows us to have the freedom to go places with him. It also allows other important people in our lives (grandparents, aunts, uncles etc.) to put him down to bed, which believe it or not has now become an enjoyable part of our day.”
