Leigh (mother of twins) wrote these words to share with her 2300+ friends on facebook:
Yay! Our night nanny and baby sleep specialist, Janelle, just got her website and blog up. And she is going to be offering online workshops to help parents have happy babies and sleepers. She is truly the baby whisperer. Seriously, it was one of the best investments we have made in having not only happy babies but a happy household! Check her out! She worked with the twins from 6-10 weeks old and they have been amazing sleepers ever since. They love to go to bed. It is such a blessing every night to take the babies up to bed, read a story, rock and sing, then just put them in their beds and say nighty night and leave. Rarely hear a peep until 7 am. Raising twins is exhausting enough without a bedtime battle.
From Shelby (mother of twins):
When we met Janelle, we were sleep deprived and at the end of our rope. One of our twin boys was a very challenging sleeper. He was waking 6-8 times a night and was becoming more and more dependent on us and his pacifier to help him fall asleep and stay asleep. We had read several different books and followed their recommendations to a tee, but nothing was working with Brady. Beckett’s sleep was getting interrupted from Brady’s frequent night wakings so we had to move Beckett to another room. We were also having the same problems with Brady during the day with his naps. We had hit a wall in which we could not continue with the course we were on. We did not know what else to try.
That’s when we called on Janelle to help us out. We felt an immediate sense of relief after talking with her. She assured us that she could help us out within a matter of days, not weeks. Our immediate goals were to get Brady sleeping through the night without using a cry it out method and to have both boys sleeping in the same room. Janelle was right, in a matter of a few nights; she had both boys sleeping through the night in the same room. We were amazed! We had her stay with us for twelve consecutive nights, because we wanted to make sure the boys were settled in with their new schedule. Life in our house changed drastically in the 12 days Janelle stayed with us! Brady and Beckett were sleeping through the night with 11 hours of sleep and waking up happy and content. Consequently, we were also sleeping through the night which was utter bliss!
Janelle has a very gentle and nurturing presence about her. She has the ability to calm babies and parents alike. We learned so much from Janelle during her time with us. She has so much insight and experience to share with parents. We still call on Janelle to help us navigate life with our twin boys. We feel very comfortable consulting with her when we run into bumps in the road. Her insight and experience continues to be invaluable. She truly has a passion for teaching babies and parents! We feel so incredibly blessed to have Janelle in our lives as a teacher to us and our baby boys.
From Cara (mother of triplets):
To whom it may concern,
My husband and I discovered Janelle about 3 months after I had triplets. It was quickly apparent that she was the best thing that could’ve happened to us at that point in time. As you know, newborn triplets can be a daunting challenge. We were fortunate to have a lot of help from our families, but Janelle made life so much easier!
We hired Janelle just for “night-duty” but she helped us out in many ways. Not only did she teach us to help our babies sleep through the night, but she also provided excellent care for them during the daytime when she was in Wichita. In addition, she provided us with valuable insights she has gained over her many years caring for children.
Initially we were looking for someone to help us short-term, but we have continued to take advantage of Janelle’s willingness to help with our children when the opportunity arises. Our only wish is that she lived in Wichita with us!
If you have any questions about Janelle, or triplets in general, please do not hesitate to call me at 316.204.####.
I could not have been more skeptical, but I am absolutely coming around. Especially considering I’m sitting here with the baby that is asleep, who would’ve normally been awake. The stuff she has to say it’s not earth shattering or that out of the ordinary, but I feel like she knows her shit, and it’s nice to have someone that can of evaluate the situation and tell you exactly what to do. We pare finishing day three, and I feel like the money has been so worth it!!! She is a coach in every sense of the word. It is only my experience, and every baby is different, but I wish someone would have told me about her months ago!
