Success Stories

Isabelle Wiebe, Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, has given the gift of sleep to many families all over North America. Read their success stories to see how working with a sleep consultant has impacted some of them!

 

 

 

“I was quite hesitant to hire a sleep consultant. As a single Mom, I had the mentality of “I can do this on my own”, I didn’t want to admit I needed help. But after over a year of multiple wakings at night and a sleep-deprived Mama AND baby…I knew it was time, and I knew Isabelle could help us. She was very understanding and didn’t push me to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with and that made this journey much easier on all of us! With gentle coaxing to teach her self-soothing techniques and a no crying-it-out alone method, I can happily say after ten days my Maisie is sleeping through the night. I honestly can’t thank Isabelle enough. She gave me the confidence and knowledge to do what is best for my daughter and myself and for that I am forever grateful.”

“There is such thing as a Christmas miracle!!!! There is a god and maybe it’s you?! He did it!!!!!! He slept through the night!!!!! (Grayson 5yrs)

You gave me the courage and strength I needed to tackle this full on! You did it with ease and allowed us to take baby steps with it (which I truly believe is why it ended up working). It made me commit to myself and my husband. I love our evenings together now, such a change!”

“We asked for Isabelle’s help when we thought we had tried everything with our 18-months old son’s sleep.

We were desperate and sleep deprived, to the point where we couldn’t function…
Isabelle was there for us every day, asking for little details such as our son’s sleeping habits, his room setup, our daily routines in the morning and before bed. She was very patient when it seemed like nothing was working, and very understanding when we just needed to vent our frustration.
Although sometimes it felt like it was impossible and it wouldn’t work in our case, we followed every advice. And it worked. And now, even when our son doesn’t sleep from time to time, we feel so much more confident with our approach.”

“Thank you for saving my sanity! With your help, my 18 month old no longer wakes at 4am. He’s now on a 7pm to 7am night sleep schedule and his transition to one nap a day was super smooth! The best part was that we were able to accomplish it with confidence and ease because we had your advice & support. No “sleep training”, just shifts in schedule and sticking to them. We’re all so much happier!”

“My son who is almost 2 was still waking 2-4 times throughout the night, we were all exhausted. I came across this page, and finally took the plunge and reached out for help for my family.
From the first day our son took to the process so easily which made it easier on my husband and myself. Our son is in a much better mood during the day and so is the rest of the house, though he still wakes during the night he is able to fall back asleep on his own without moms help and less frequently.”

Thank you so much!!

“Isabelle was supportive, compassionate, and confident in her abilities to help my family. My girl threw us curve ball after curve ball, but Isabelle guided us through all of them. Now that sleep has improved, my spouse and I don’t argue as much and we have more time together. We have more time to spend with my older daughter (12yrs), with friends/family, and I also have more time to myself! We are all much happier 🙂 Thank you!!”

“Hiring Isabelle was a great decision, within two weeks our 9 month old baby girl went from waking up crying every 2-3 hours to sleeping a full 12 hours during the night. From day one baby S was smiley and happy, but now that she is more rested she is even that much more content! Isabelle was able to apply a sleep plan that worked for our family, she has a true gift and is so easy to work with. Highly recommend!”

Having two kids just 17 months apart is challenging and adding little to no sleep in the mix is a complete world wind. Having Isabelle and her guidance through the sleep training process has been my lifesaver. I sleep trained my daughter Rachel at 2.5 months along with the assistance of Isabelle and couldn’t have been happier! When we had my second daughter Kate I knew that Isabelle would be right there to help! Kate was more challenging then Rachel and struggled more at the beginning.  With persistence and determination Isabelle pushed me through and I now have two kids sleeping 12 hours a night with overlapping naps! I don’t know what I would have done without Isabelle”s help. I recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you again!

“Isabelle is amazing to work with. I received a free consultation through Facebook and in that short 20 minutes i was given the tools and confidence to get my little one to sleep through the night in 4 nights. It has been almost a month of no interrupted sleep….yay! I can’t express my gratitude to Isabelle as I soon have to go back to work and my nights are now quiet!
Thank you so much!!”

“Being a mom of twins, I have always tried to keep my girls on the same routine. I began struggling with naps and bedtime. Isabelle jumped right in to help. No hesitation at all. I went straight to work with her advice and have seen amazing results. She continues to follow up to see how we are making out. She is very confident in her plan she gives you. Very impressed. Thank you so much!”

We are the parents of now 9 month old Aria, the one that wouldn’t sleep thru the night at all. Lack of sleep was showing up in everybody. We heard about Isabelle becoming a sleep consultant and didn’t hesitate to contact her. She walked us thru the process and it works.
Aria now sleeps right around 11 hours at night and goes for her regular naps. Overall she is a much happier baby, and so are we as parents. Thanks Isabelle!!

This is one of those things that if and when it works.. you feel like you have literally hit the jackpot!! Sleepless nights with kids is one of the worst forms of torture (both for child and parents) in my opinion. Our middle child (Kendall 2 1/2yrs old) was always known for her incredible ambition to sleep. From day 1 home from the hospital, she adapted to a sleep schedule almost all by herself.. piece of cake – right?! Well….. a little while ago, we started noticing she was waking in the night with the worst night terrors 🙁 At first we chalked it up to maybe TV too close to bed time, something she ate, behaviors in other kids at daycare. After about 2-3 weeks of this going on EVERY night.. I stumbled across this page on Facebook and reached out to Isabelle for some input. We had NO idea what we were up against, and not having dealt with anything like this before, we had NO idea where to start. We had been working to improve the things “we thought” were causing the night terrors but nothing was working. Within the very first consultation with Tiny Leaps Big Changes Sleep Consulting, we felt a huge relief! Isabelle dove right in and knew just why we were maybe seeing these new sleep issues. I won’t lie.. I was skeptical. I honestly didn’t think this was going to be an easy fix but we were all so exhausted… we knew we needed help and fast! With the suggestions to change up our existing routine some, we quickly implemented them and with in ONE WEEK we had a peaceful sleeping beauty again – JUST LIKE THAT!!!! I am so excited to share that we have been following Isabelle’s recommendations and for the past month since we first reached out… have had NO MORE NIGHT TERRORS!! To be honest.. we even have wayyy less emotional moments or tantrums throughout the day too!! We are VERY grateful for your help Isabelle! You are our angel and we will for sure be 110% recommending Tiny Leaps Big Changes Sleep Consulting to any and everyone!! Great work!! Sabrina

When my daughter was around 9 months old, she started waking up at the night (usually 2 sometimes 3 times).  My whole family was exhausted. I thought this was just the life of having a baby!

During this time Isabelle was having the same sort of issues with her daughter, so she thankfully came across the Sleep Sense Program. It took about 5 days to get her on track to a good sleeping routine but it worked! She was sleeping through the night every night for 12 hours straight!

Now that she is almost 20 months old a few things have changed routine wise. I’m back to work and she is going to a day home. I also work shift work so it makes it a bit more challenging. So as a result, my daughter started to cry…ok I mean scream before bed. She would still sleep through the night, but it was like pulling teeth listening to her being put to bed.  Thankfully, Isabelle was at my house a few weeks ago when I laid her down for her nap. She reminded me of what I may be forgetting. Sure enough within a few days again I had my baby back! She doesn’t make a peep before going to bed now. She even gives my husband and I a kiss and hug first before she drifts off to sleep for 12 hours straight every night!

Sorry this is long but I just wanted to reassure those moms that may have given up that it does work a second time around!! Amanda & Charley Bowman

We couldn’t get our baby to sleep a full night, and couldn’t understand why he was always waking up crying for the last 6 months. We were so exhausted and decided to get some help.

Isabelle was excellent to help us, as my wife only speaks French. Her and I graduated together at a francophone high school so it made the communication with my wife and I easier. She gave us confidence with her explanation of how our baby had simply forgotten how sleep independently. We felt comfortable with the plan she put in place for us, and found comfort in doing the entire process with her guidance at our own pace. Isabelle understood exactly what our challenges were, and gave us the right tools to help our son sleep peacefully through the night. She was excellent at delivering the help needed to follow the plan, and we had confidence with her experience.

The experience as a whole had a very positive impact on our entire family. We are all getting more sleep and much happier!  We may even start thinking about expanding our family!

We thank you so much for this learning curve in our young parent life! Marc, Melanie & Mathias

“Dear Isabelle,

Finally, it is time to report to you about our success with Billy’s sleep. After we last talked to you, we tried doing a 4am disruption and it seemed to work. We did it for about 2 weeks, and gradually Billy’s sleeps became longer and longer and more peaceful. As of today, the twins sleep 11.5 hours a night and 2 – 3 hours during the day. We are very happy, grateful for your help, and strongly believe in daily routines and schedule. Thank you so much!”

I cannot tell you how amazing it is to sleep all night again. Lack of sleep is just something I thought was normal for a parent. It’s so amazing to realize that is not true! I can’t believe how well Brantley is sleeping and how quickly it worked! What you told me seemed so simple, but it was so effective and I only regret not doing it sooner. Thank you so much for all your help! Sarah B

“It was hard work, but it really pays off in the end! I appreciate how you gave me step by step instructions. I was totally guided through this whole process.
We are all so much happier during the day!   It turns out Livy who I thought just didn’t like to nap, really does enjoy sleeping during the day now that she knows how to sleep well! She was such a happy baby to begin with (or so I thought), and now she very rarely even fusses at all!! So amazing. My only regret is to not have done something about this sooner. Thank you so much 💜

“For most people, a nursery is a place where there is joy, and peace and fun, and for so long…it was a place of frustration and anxiety and overwhelming exhaustion. I encourage you, if you have not done this already, DO IT! It will make such a difference in your life and the life in your child.”

“I must say your plan is nothing short of a miracle… our little baby was 5 1/2 months when we did it… and its changed all of our lives.. Ryder sleeps thru the nite and naps like a baby! Prior, he was up to nurse 4-5 times a nite and had never really slept in his crib during the day to nap… I had to either rock him or nap with him on me… turns out the little guy loves to be in his crib!”
