Sleep training success stories from families around the world

With her help and guidance, he now sleeps all the way through the night and takes solid naps everyday.
It was a huge weight off our shoulders that we basically had someone to guide us through the process that knew what they were talking about.
I started working with Maria Clara when my baby was 10 days olds. She guided us to teaching Lucia healthy sleep habits. It was my best investment, We havent been sleep deprived at all! I could thank her enough for making my journey through motherhood as easy as possible!

I cannot say enough great things about Maria!! When we met María, the sleep deprivation was so real we didn’t know what else to do. Maria was amazing, her plan and follow ups helped us stick to the routing and in less than 10 days my son was sleeping 12hrs straight at night and napping regularly during the day. Best money ever spent!

Maria literally saved my life ! I had 17 month old twins with the worst sleeping patterns. I had no hope on anything working out for us; i had tried every method out there! Then a friend recommended Maria and in 3 days my babies where sleeping through the night ❤️! We worked together for a month, she was always on top of my process, always available for anything we needed. Its been 9 months since she helped me but i know i can always reach out to her for any questions – i have many time since and she’s super helpful. For my next baby best believe i’ll be calling her way earlier! Love her!

I called Maria on a whim from a friend when our 7 month old had been waking up regularly at 5am and taking very short naps – our poor guy was exhausted and I didn’t know how to fix it! I was also exhausted and desperate for a solution! Maria patiently listened and asked all the right questions. She gave me a series of actionable steps that we could put into place right away. Our baby went from 2 naps of 45 minutes each to 2 naps of 2-3 hours each. And instead of waking upscreaming at 5am, he was waking up quietly and well rested at 6:30-7am. It was truly a baby sleep miracle! Maria is extremely skilled and educated in the area of baby sleep. I’m now convinced there is a technique to it. If you are an exhausted new parent, you truly have nothing to lose by reaching out to Maria…and a lot of sleep to gain! Maria, we are forever grateful to you for giving our baby the gift of sleep!

Maria is a joy to work with and very knowledgeable. She truly changed our lives by helping us to teach our three month old baby to sleep through the night. She was an ongoing support and comfort during these difficult early months. She is worth every penny and more! Highly recommend to anyone looking to regain their sanity after having a baby.

Recomendaría a María Clara una y mil Veces porque fue la pieza clave para lo feliz que estamos mi esposo, yo y los abuelos con el comportamiento del sueño de mi hija hoy. María con su experiencia y análisis del cuestionario que nos envía para responder, hace maravillas entendiendo el comportamiento del bebé, causas y medidas muy amorosas a tomar con ella, siempre nos apoyó, hace 3 meses iniciamos el entrenamiento en una semana los resultados eran WOW y al mes todo funcionó a la maravilla graduándonos además y hasta hoy siempre pregunta cómo va mi hija y ayuda a cualquier cambio que haya pasado, su paciencia, compañía, flexibilidad, Manejo de planes y modificaciones cuando se requieren la hizo única en esta experiencia que créanme es lo mejor que le puede pasar a usted y su pareja, así después de las 7:30 pm vuelven a ser novios y disfrutarse. María, está familia te ama y vive agradecida contigo.

I can not say enough good things about Maria. My two year old was going through a terrible sleep regression and after four weeks of trying everything, my husband and I reached out to Maria for help. We felt helpless and defeated, but Maria responded to our inquiry right away and set up a time to meet with us. After just an hour with Maria, we felt better. She was respectful and definitive, and gave us specific changes to make that felt achievable. We had lost all confidence in our routine and approach, but Maria followed up with a comprehensive sleep plan that told us exactly what to do. On night three of following her plan, our son went to sleep without issue and slept through the night for the first time in over a month. It seemed too good to be true! And he’s been sleeping well ever since. Maria followed up with text messages and words of encouragement until we were both confident that our son’s sleep schedule was back on track. If my son or daughter ever have a sleep issue again, Maria will be our first call!

I wish more people were as kind, professional and supportive as Maria. Even though we are not in the same city, Maria was able to help us with our baby’s sleep; she always picked up the phone or texted us back. I don’t think you can get this kind of service with any other Sleep Consultant (and there’s thousands out there). Our baby now sleeps the night through!!! Thank you Maria, my only regret is not hiring you before <3

Maria was great to work with. I was hesitant and concerned about making the move to a formal sleep training program/coach, but after hearing from her references, I was convinced sleeping through the night was possible- and we were ready to commit! It only took about 4 nights for our 8 month old to settle into a solid 12 hour nighttime sleep. Maria was accessible by phone and email to answer any questions we had along the way… we are so happy to have a well rested baby and to have our evenings quiet and to ourselves!

Maria was amazing! She came to our house for a F2F consultation within a few days of me reaching out to her, and worked with us to create a custom plan for our daughter who was about 4 months. She worked with us 1:1, based on our level of comfort with certain things, and really held us accountable to our plan with almost daily check ins. Weeks later she was still checking in and helping us navigate the changing landscape of newborn sleep. Thank you Maria for giving us the confidence to be consistent and loving parents when it comes to sleep, and giving us the tools to create healthy sleep patterns for life!

Desde que nació mi hija pensé mejoraría su sueño haciendo lo que todos nos decían, al ver que empeoraba simplemente dijimos “jamás volveremos a dormir”, esto cambió 100% al conocer a María Clara! Súper recomendadisima! La mejor elección sin duda alguna. Excelente profesional, con muchos conocimientos en el tema, gran persona, siempre un apoyo sin importar el día, nunca nos abandonó sin importar la duda que tuviéramos. Estamos felices con los resultados, simplemente increíble!

I am forever grateful for Maria’s support and excellent advice!!!!! I was INCREDIBLY sleep deprived for 5.5 months. I had tried everything, including co sleeping and nothing helped both myself, my husband and my baby. After hiring Maria and going through gentle sleep training, I feel like a new person and my baby is so much happier. I think it’s important to note that I was very much uninterested in sleep training at the beginning and wanted to be as completely responsive as possible for my baby. However, through research and the thoughtful support with Not A Peep, I’ve been able to help my baby learn to sleep which has made him such a happier baby overall. I realized that we go to experts when we need help, sleep for babies does not come easy for most and having a sleep consultant is such a necessity. I have and will continue to recommend Maria. She’s truly something special. She made me feel comfortable right off the bat. I knew I could trust her! She continues to help me even now and seriously the most compassionate person. I am BEYOND grateful!

I was debating for a while if it was worth it to hire a sleep consultant and it totally was. My 2 year old daughter was having trouble staying in her bed and sleeping throughout the night and during naptime. Maria developed a comprehensive plan to address several issues. She worked with us and adjusted the plan throughout the process. My days are no longer stressful and we finally have our nights back to relax after putting the kids to bed. Maria not only helped us to solve this immediate issue, she also helped us to be more disciplined with routine. All of the work Maria did with us and our daughter not only improved her sleep but she is SO much more pleasant and hardly has any temper tantrums (something that had recently spiked during the period we were having trouble with her sleep). I highly recommend Maria. We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to work and learn from her.

I reached out to Maria about my 13 month old waking up 1-3 times a night. She gave me simple advice via messenger: give her a few minutes to soothe herself and she just might surprise you and go back to sleep. It worked. All it took was a minute or two. Life changer. Wish I would have done this sooner!

I can recommend Not a Peep a million times! Our journey with Maria Clara started when my baby was 5 days old and it has been one of the best decisions we have ever made! My baby boy sleeps all night long since he was 2 months old thanks to the help I received from Not a Peep. The guidance we got was the best and I never felt alone in this process. I can surely say it’s worth every penny! I am so thankful we can rest and our life is much easier with a baby that sleeps so well. It was our first son so all the things we have learned are priceless. Thank you so much Maria Clara.

What an amazing service Maria offers! I think any parent can benefit. We worked with Maria to help our eight-month-old establish a sleep schedule. Within days, our daughter was sleeping through the night and following a nap schedule. Maria’s customized plan is truly a miracle – our child now sleeps through the night (without needing a bottle to go to sleep) and so do we. Working with Maria has been, undoubtedly, one of the best decisions we’ve made as new parents and we plan to use her again as our daughter grows. She’s accommodating, thoughtful and supportive.

Maria is a lifesaver! This is the second time we used her (for a different child) and she does not disappoint. She understands the reasons behind sleep deficits for all ages and provides an individualized plan based on then needs of the child family. I can not recommend her enough, sleep is not overrated!

I met Maria at a sleep class at PlayArts. She was extremely understanding, helpful and informative. I left the class with a renewed sense of hope about sleep! Since then, we’ve worked to implement the tools she gave us and have had great success! She continues to check in and help guide us through this process and help us feel confident along the way!

Maria gave me great advice after our 5 month old daughter went from sleeping through the night while on vacation to waking up 3x per night once we got back home. After a four nights of doing what she suggested she went from 3x per night back to sleeping through the night again!! I would definitely recommend her!

I first met Maria at a sleep class at PlayArts. She offered a great deal of advice for everyone at the group, which spanned from expecting moms to parents of school aged children. My son has been struggling with naps and Maria has been extremely supportive. We’ve been in contact for a few weeks now, and she continues to check in on our progress and offers new advice and suggestions ! I highly recommend her!!!

Maria’s sleep training workshop changed my life, no exaggeration… literally changed my life. For every mom out there who is reluctant to do sleep training bc they are feeling overwhelmed, frightened, guilty and/or all of the above- There is hope!! My infant was 6 months old and using me as a human pacifier up ALL night, she was cranky and I was exhausted, no one was winning, days or nights. After taking Maria’s professional advice she now sleeps 7PM-7AM. Maria is compassionate and caring but I also genuinely appreciated her no nonsense approach on the reality of sleep training.

We are very happy working with Maria, she always makes herself available when we need her advice. She is also very understanding of our needs and the way we decide to move forward with the sleep training. Our 2 year old has made so much progress since she started coaching us, and her recomendations to start working on our newborn have been very helpful as well. She has definitely made an impact in our (and the kids) quality of life. We strongly recommend her!!!

Maria is excellent! She listened to our problem which was our 4 year old needing someone present at night to go to sleep. Sometimes he would require both parents laying next to him to fall asleep! She suggested a simple, yet very effective solution that has been working perfectly ever since! She also has followed up to see if need any extra advice to help fix the problem. We are so happy with the results! Such a game changer for our evenings! Thank you so much, Maria!

I cannot say enough about the support and comfort Maria provided for us during the newborn stage and beyond. She helped prepare us for sleep training before our son arrived and we went into it feeling confident and supported. Even during those difficult stages, she was always available to answer any questions we had, no matter how crazy, and assure us that we were doing the right thing. We are proud to say our baby boy slept through the night by 7 weeks and Maria has a lot to do with that!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Maira! I contacted her because my daughter at 9 weeks old was requiring so much assistance to sleep; rocking for 30 minutes or nursing to sleep. She was chronically overtired because she could not sleep independently. Maria listened to all our concerns and made an individual plan for our baby. Everything she told us was spot on, and she was there every step of the way to help us. Our daughter was able to put herself to sleep at bedtime without a week of us implementing her plan. My daughter is now 5 months old, sleeping 12 hours per night, and puts herself to sleep independently for naps and bedtime. Maria still checks in to make sure all is well which I so much appreciate. She truly cares about our daughter. I can honestly say this was the best money I have ever spent; a well rested baby, mom, and dad is priceless.
