Sleep consultant?

Hi all! We are the parents of a 5 month old who still only sleeps on people (we cosleep at night, and wear her in a sling during the day). None of us are sleeping well, but we're not sure what to do, given all of the conflicting advice on the internet. Has anyone had a positive experience with a sleep consultant? Would you recommend him/her? We are hoping to find someone with clear, consistent advice that can be tailored to the needs of our particular baby. Thank you!

We used Shannon from Sleep Well Specialist. We loved her so much that we used her again for our 2nd child. She works with you and your family's needs along with identifying sleep dependencies of your child in order to build a personalized sleep plan. Her and her team are great to work https://www.sleepwellsleepspecialists.com/

Heck yes! Had wonderful, wonderful experience working with Amanda Brewer from A to Z sleep solutions. They are based in Arizona where I am from but since the service we used was the phone/email/text support it can be done from anywhere and we were actually in MI at the time we hired her. CHANGED OUR LIVES! Teaching a baby to sleep on their own is 100% possible but as first time parents it seemed like the advice was all contradictory and everything we tried miserably failed until we hired Amanda and got professional, personalized, kind guidance teaching us how to teach her to relax for sleep. Within a week she was sleeping thru the night and within 2 weeks she was going down for naps and bedtime on her own in her crib. It was loving, gradual and effective and a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT in my parenting happiness. Gave me so much more confidence! And the price is was reasonable I thought though honestly having done it I would pay 3x more than what I did because it was so valuable!

We had a great experience with a sleep consultant, and it really saved our sanity. Our consultant is no longer in the business, so I can't recommend her. But you should be able to get a free initial consult/call, just so you can see if the consultant's approach is the right fit for you. Exhaustion doesn't help anyone. Good luck!

We had a great experience with Dr. Sarah Mitchell of Helping Babies Sleep. We paid about $600 for a 2 week personalized plan including a consult, written plan, phone check ins, and specific, individualized instructions throughout the day on a Google Sheet where we tracked all of his sleep. We were able to get our 13mo from cosleeping and night nursing like every hour all night to sleeping through the night in his own room with no feeds and go from 2 naps to 1 nap all in less than a week. She's flexible and listened to our preferences around the approach we took and was super responsive. It's some of the best money we have ever spent.

Darrah Torres of SleepWise Consulting is the best! She helped us when our daughter was 12 weeks, and she’s been an incredible sleeper (and napper!) ever since (currently almost 2 y/o). Additionally, 5 of my friends have since hired Darrah with equally incredible results. Her custom service skills and personalized attention to your family are worth every penny! https://sleepwiseconsulting.com/consultants/darrah-torres/

We used Adele Thompson for sleep consulting when our kid stopped sleeping except on us at 6 or 7 months. We liked her style and felt like she did a good job coaching us. The techniques she taught us have gotten our family through time changes, living in a new house temporarily, and starting/stopping daycare several times. https://adelethompsonsleepconsulting.com/
