“Sleep Wise and Halie are miracle workers!”
Our little girl will be 5 years old in just a couple of days. We spent the last 2 years with a chair at the door of her room, feeling like we were being held hostage. Once we thought she was asleep, we would try to escape like ninjas out of the room and close her door without waking her. This process could take between 15 minutes to an hour. If we woke her up (many times she was just waiting to see when we would leave), she would jump out of bed crying… begging us to stay. We would plead with her to get back into bed. She would not unless we sat back down into the chair and waited more time… hoping she would go back to sleep.
Once we were out of the room with success, there were nights that Evie would wake up from a bad dream and realize we were not sitting in the chair. She would start crying, turn on every light upstairs and cry herself to sleep on the balcony. My husband and I take turns doing her nightly routine. When it was my night, I would dread going through this ordeal. Some nights it was easy… some nights my stomach was in knots. Evie was upset and so were we.
My friend told me that she had the same problem with her little boy. She told me about Halie and Sleep Wise. She said she thought it would never work but it was like a miracle. She said her little boy was finally staying in bed and it was such a relief.
After one night of melt down after melt down with Evie, I found Halie’s contact information that my friend shared with me. The subject line was, “Help!”
Halie emailed me back and we scheduled a call to discuss the program. Jason and I were very skeptical that the program would work for us but we were desperate and ready to try. Knowing that my friend had success gave me a lot of hope.
Halie was so nice and helpful. She presented the program to us and we decided to go all in with the biggest package. Hailie said this would be a gift to Evie for her future. It would teach her to love her room, love sleep and we could finally take that dreaded chair out of Evie’s room.
Guys… we just finished week 3 and tonight I completed Evie’s routine, tucked her into bed, told her goodnight, closed her door and she fell asleep. A miracle!!!
If you decide to do the program, my biggest advice would be to follow the process to a t. Trust Halie or your Sleep Wise counselor… they know what they are doing. Jason and I were anxious about the different steps because of our past experience with Evie and sleep. Halie was there every step of the way and the results… we have peace… Evie is more rested and not upset at night… we have more quality time together after she is in bed. Such an amazing gift to our family!
If you are on the fence, I would say go ahead and sign up. You won’t regret it.
