Dawnn, we would like to thank you so much for giving us our evenings back! We had rocked Rosa to sleep since birth, a common mistake of first time parents. Soon each session of rocking became longer and longer, only to have Rosa awaken as we transferred her to bed. It came to a point where it would take hours to put Rosa to sleep, and you could tell she was so overtired. It was a hard decision to implement your sleep training plan at eight weeks - but with your guidance we knew we could do it. Since that first night Rosa has learned to self soothe and does not need us to help her fall asleep. We have since regained our evenings and we can not thank you enough.
— Adrea & Erick, parents of Rosa
Within three weeks of our initial consultation, our daughter was sleeping 12 hours each night. We are eternally grateful to Dawnn and recommend her highly.
— Dr. Jennifer and John Morgan, parents of a six-month-old girl
I must say that most people I know are amazed by how much sleep we're getting - especially if they have babies around Aili's age. Thanks to you, we're the envy of all of our friends!
— Angie Oshika, mum to four-month-old Aili, Coquitlam
Life is so much better now that we can all sleep! The whole process worked for us. Doing the consult on the phone, being able to send questions by email, doing the daily journal, and hearing “that’s normal” – everything helped. I’m so proud of us.
— Claire Samyciawood, Helena's Mom
It was insane trying to work and be a decent parent and partner on no sleep. We tried everything. Claire and I were questioning each other and ourselves constantly. Your support re-built our confidence and we had Helena sleeping through the night after only three days.
— Matt Wood, Helena's Dad
I just wanted to say a big thank you to Dawnn for all the support and guidance in teaching my 11-wee- old daughter to sleep well and nap well during the day. After 2.5 weeks of sleep training my then 12-week-old daugther was sleeping 12 hours during the night. While naps are still a hit and miss somedays we are continually giving her the opportunity to self-soothe and now she goes down for all naps independently. I think most I want to thank Dawnn for just listening and giving me the encouragement and confidence that what I was doing for my daughter was best for her. Thanks so much Dawnn!!!!!
— Trisha Hillaby, Edmonton AB
Nichola, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping us give Charlotte the gift of sleep! We are amazed by how quickly our daughter was able to adapt to the sleep training. I was so sleep deprived and emotionally spent when I first contacted Cheekychops. With your guidance, my days and nights are so much better! I am able to spend quality time with each of my three children, and my husband and I have time to ourselves. Thank you so much. It has been a pleasure working with you. I highly recommend anyone considering hiring a sleep consultant to give Cheekychops a call!
— Shani and Darren, Charlotte's parents
Your kindness and love of children shines - I have so much respect for the work that you do and the difference that you must make in peoples lives. Thanks again - for the difference in my life - I will really miss my daily chat with you.
— Holly Caldecot, Albany, New York
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the job you do and for your assistance to me. Sarah is sleeping through the night and having two naps daily and I am getting rested and refreshed, which makes our time together even better than before. You provide a valuable service and I hope you will be encouraged and continue to do this kind of work. It's made a world of a difference for us.
— Kirsten Hemstock, mother to Sarah, Eastern Canada
I cannot tell you how much your support means to me. Most importantly, you are never judgmental and never make me feel like I am doing something wrong. This is by far, the most challenging "job" I have ever had and your assistance makes me a better mother.
— Jennifer Cordoba, mother to 13-month-old Samuel, Langley, BC
Connors has had a personality change since we implemented your suggestions - I always thought he was a fairly hyperactive baby but now he is sleeping better, he is so much calmer. I really appreciate your on going daily support - I honestly could of not done this without you.
— Catriona O'Leery, Boston, USA
Mateo is now sleeping through the night and so are we - which is absolutely helping our family unit. He is napping regularly during the day (two-three hours average) instead of 20-minute catnaps he was doing before! Before the training, I really thought that we would never have a restful night again and was a little doubtful that the sleep training would work - but here we are well rested and happy!!!! From the bottom of my heart, again I want to thank you for helping us through the most challenging part of raising our son so far - Thanks for bringing back sleep to our family!!!!
— Rina, mother of Matteo
Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you Kai has had three consecutive nights of blissful restful sleep! We cannot thank you enough for all your support and help in getting out little fella on board with the sleep program.
— Corrine, mum to nine-month-old Kai, Richmond
Jack slept through the night again and hes still sleeping - I never heard him once. Ive just checked in on Jack hes sucking his thumb - I'll have my cup of tea and get him up at 7:30 AM.
— Crystal, mum to 12-week-old Jack, South Langley
Things have been going quite smoothly for us--so much thanks to you for that! At first I was a little sheepish about hiring someone to help Jaeda sleep better, but now I am so thankful and I have told many people about how you guided us through Jaeda's sleeping issues. Just wanted to say thank you so much. Jaeda still sleeps through the night. She consistently sleeps 11-12 hours. I am so grateful for this, as now I feel much more normal and able to cope with life and a little one.
— Lisa, mum to Jaeda, 3 months, Langley, BC
I admit to having been skeptical initially when Natalie suggested a sleep consultant, but I am now an absolute convert. Last night, Friday that is, we had 2 out of 3 make it through the night. Much obliged.
— Jack, dad to one-year-old triplets, Ottawa
My Mummy and I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for helping us get through this big step! Mummy never thought I'd ever be able to sleep all by myself in my crib. But because of you I have shown her that I can. Thank you so much for making my Mummy feel better in so many ways. You will always be remembered in our family.
— Four-month-old Owen, son of Heidi, Port Moody
I know we've just started but the progress we have made with your help is remarkable! We cant thank you enough - we are really looking forward to working with you over the next few weeks - our livy is also so much happier too.
— Stephanie, mum to six-week-old Olivia
We'd like to say thank you so much for helping us to solve Ryan's sleeping problems. Within a week, he went from being up for one to two hours a night to sleeping through. Within weeks he was also regularly napping for two hours at daycare - up from a nap of 10-minutes max all day! He is much happier now that he gets his sleep and the new routine you gave us has also really helped him with his solids, he will now eat just about anything! He now sleeps from 6.45 - 7 pm until 6.30 am, with a two-two-and-a-half hour nap midday - magic!
— Lisa, mum to one-year-old Ryan, Port Moody
I am so glad to have taken the jump and accomplished what we have. It wouldn't have been possible without your support. Not only is Rachel sleeping through the night, but she is also napping in her crib. What a treat! Thanks again for all your help. I'll be recommending your services to every new parent in need of sleep!
— Dominique, mother of Rachel
I am so grateful that we were led to you...I can't even imagine if we had continued going ahead the way things were. I can't believe what a difference it has made to get some sleep. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You've given us hope again. Keep on doing what you do!
— Vanessa, mother of Jonah
It's been over a month since we began sleep training with Sarah and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your assistance in improving our little one's sleep habits. Sarah was overall a pretty good-natured baby and we now have an even happier baby thanks for the support that you provided along the way. Sarah's sleep habits are so good that my husband's co-workers are amazed at how awake he looks every day! (haha). I highly recommend your help to all new parents out there and will gladly provide a reference should you ever need it. Thanks again!
— Edith, mother of Sarah
I am certainly enjoying where things are at and am absolutely thrilled with how well things are going! Cora is very happy these days and loving life...it's wonderful. I can see when Cora gets tired more easily and that's my cue to get her to sleep asap before she gets overtired. Thanks for all your help Dawnn, we're so pleased with how things have turned out.
— Stephanie, mother of Cora
I want to thank you for your dedication and knowledge. You saved us during our sleeplessness, and now we have peaceful nights. Jemma is coming up 6 months now and is a completely different child. Again thank you.
— Heather, mother of Jemma
Dawnn, your advice has stayed true and as Julianna emerges towards her 10 month, she is a happy & well rested baby. She naps twice a day and sleeps 12 hours most nights. I constantly tell people about your services and highly recommend you to them. We appreciated your help and guidance as it truly made life easier for us all. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!
— Alison Armstrong, mother of Julianna
Thank you so much for everything. There are not enough words to thank you for the time you put in helping us-or more so me. We wish you continued success in your business and much happiness to your family! You are amazing at what you do!!
— Christine, mother of Keira
Our second son would only nap in 15-20 minute increments, waking up as many as eight times a night and feeding as many as 16 times a day. My husband and I were at the end of our rope, the sleep deprivation had led to frustration and the lack of energy was killing our family dynamics. Our paediatrician recommended we seek out professional help and eventually through word of mouth we found Dawnn. Within days of our one-on-one consultation we received a detailed plan on how to deal with the frequent feeds and how to conquer the naps and night time waking's. Every morning I would email Dawnn with details of the previous night and she would give me advice for the following night. We stayed on course and accomplished getting our son to three naps and day and sleeping 7:30 pm to 7:30 am. We are happier now as a family and most importantly our youngest son is happy.
— Carole Diaz and Mark Sawchyn, parents of a four-month-old boy
We are parents of nine0month old twin boys and a two-yea- old daughter. From the moment I met Dawnn, I felt an Angel must have been watching out for us. Dawnn listened to our needs and learnt about our family dynamics. Within days of following her plan we saw immediate changes and within a week incredible results. A profound change had taken place in our home; our babies were content for the first time we could remember, our toddler was enjoying her brothers and my husband and I were smiling, laughing and planning family trips again.
— Jackie Haines, mother of nine-month-old twin sons and a two-year-old daughter
We were incredibly fortunate in that my son was trained in one evening and Dawnn remained my support for a few more days to ensure any unusual circumstances were handled in a way that was best for my son.
— Caroline Preston-Johnson, mother of a 22-month-old boy
I want to thank you so much Katie Minder for all of your amazing support and patience. This has been the most incredible experience and it is all thanks to you. Before I called you I was feeling so down, anxious and not enjoying being a mom. I was sleep deprived!!! I am now so happy, my family is happy and we are all getting a little sleep. I swear things changed even before Gabe started sleeping. It was the first night I talked to you....I felt this giant weight being lifted from my shoulders. It was someone giving me permission and confidence to do the things I needed to do. I seriously cannot thank you enough. Your kindness meant so much...even the personal phone call the night we were going to begin helped to make things so much easier. I knew someone was in our corner. I tell everyone about you Katie...my only regret was that I didn't call you a little sooner! Gabe is doing so amazing and all he needed was a little structure.
— From Lisa Cowan/Hicks - Mom of Gabe
OK. I've been writing this in my head for days now, it's time to just get it out and send it! "Working with Kate has been delightful. Sleep training sounds so ominous and daunting until you get into it and from the get-go, Kate made the whole process stress-free and, dare I say fun? Her correspondence was always prompt, sincere, and helpful - offering up supportive advice and suggestions and tweaks to the plan to ensure our sucess. From the very start, I felt as though we were kindred spirits and this rapport made me look forward to reporting back about each night! In addition to the support through the sleep training process, Kate was able to provide me with valuable breast feeding advice that made feeding my baby much easier. Not only did I have a three month old sleeping through the night after three weeks, but I had a great time getting there."
— Elizabeth Huel about Katie Minder
Nichola, I just want to say thank you! I've had such a great experience working with you and am so glad I found cheeky chops consulting.
I cannot imagine what our lives would be like without the help you gave us.
I am so grateful that Kara now naps and sleeps independently and in her own crib. I never imagined she would be sleeping for 11 hours at night and 2 1/2 hours a day.
To go from when I would sit in a dark room rocking her for her nap for hours and waking at night ever two hours to no nighttime waking and napping in her crib has been amazing.
So again on behalf of me, my daughter and my husband, thank you so much!
— Amanda McDonald - Mom of Kara -
My daughter was waking up 2 to 3 times in the night every night
and barely napping during the day. With Annie's help, Gemma now
sleeps soundly through the night and naps consistently both morning
and afternoon. She was very supportive during this process, her knowledge
and experience was evident as her advice was practical and effective.
This makes for one happy mom and baby.
— Luciana, mother of 9 month old Gemma
Forget what you’ve heard about a full nights sleep only being possible by leaving your child to cry for extended periods or do without your attention and nurturing—our experience was the opposite and the result was energized and rested parents and baby.”
— Liza Walli, Mom of Arlo
