What parents are saying!
Alyssa, Vancouver (6mo old)
"Adela changed our lives. Seriously.We went from co-sleeping, 30 minute naps and multiple wakeups to 1.5 to 2 hour long naps and 7pm to 7am sleeps in 3 weeks. Our son is enjoying hours more of solid sleep, while my partner and I are enjoying the hours of extra time that we have. Our day to day is far more predictable and we feel far more confident as first time parents after working with her."
Kaitlyn, Vancouver (4mo old)
"We consulted Adela as our 4 month old baby was waking up to 5 times throughout the night and relied on feeding, pacifier, and motion in a swing to fall asleep. Adela worked with us to customize a plan to achieve our goal of teaching baby to be able to self soothe, reduce the frequency of night wakings, and to transition her to sleeping in a crib in her own nursery. She was extremely professional, supportive, and really cared about our success in sleep training. There is absolutely no way we could’ve sleep trained successfully without her help! By the end of sleep training, all of our goals were achieved, and even though I still have countless worries as a new mom, sleep is no longer one of them. Adela is such a wonderful gift to our family and this is the best money we have spent thus far!"
Yana, Vancouver (13.5mo old)
"Adela was helpful and very understanding in helping our 13.5 month old achieve independent night sleep in his own bed. We had lots of challenges along the way but with her help we were able to achieve our goals. We are still working on the nap and early morning waking but at least we are sleeping at night! I call that a win :)"
Melanie, Vancouver (7mo old)
"Sleep training with Adela has been the best gift our husband and I could have given ourselves, second to our son being born! We came to Adela when our son was 7.5 months, very sleep deprived, and on recommendation from a friend. With the combination of Adela’s sleep plan, strategy session and mentoring over text, we were successful in transitioning our son to his crib on night ONE itself (after months of nursing to sleep, co-sleeping and failed attempts to get him in his crib.) On night THREE, he was sleeping through the entire night with no night feeds (again, after months of waking up several times during the nights/early mornings.) Best of all, it wasn’t a cry it out method; the approach Adela taught us to incorporate was firm yet gentle with space for discretionary intervention that was compatible with our attachment-based parenting style. As we worked through the sleep tracker and nap/sleep routines daily, Adela worked closely alongside us, offering feedback and trouble shooting. She helped us learn how to make adjustments to navigate regularly scheduled activities as well as when things were derailed. This built our own capacity and a deeper understanding on how to optimize time, be watchful of baby’s cues, and prime him to sleep.
It wasn’t just a sleep program; Adela offered a holistic approach that supported us in building a solid schedule for the day with proper sequencing of activities. This included a feeding schedule to break the feeding to sleep association. I went from nursing 8-10 times daily (almost every 2 hours during the day, even at 7.5 months) to 5 times daily. I still consider my nursing to be baby-led as I’m feeding our son when HE decides to wake up; I’m not setting exact times for him to nurse. He’s stopped snack nursing and his feeds naturally lengthened. The longer stretches in between have also created the space for baby to come to his high chair with more of an appetite and his solid feeds have really picked up over the past two weeks.
I know how much energy and passion it takes to do this supportive work, and Adela has that genuine interest in supporting her clients, both babies and adults! She is knowledgeable, responsive, and thoughtful. We can’t thank Adela enough and would recommend her with confidence to any fellow parent."
Natasha, Vancouver (10mo old)
"When we met with Adela, we had a couple of goals: to have my 10-month old stop waking 3-4 times a night, and to learn how to self soothe rather than rely on a nursing session. By the end of our time together, he was doing both of those things. We even all got sick during our time, but he was able to get right back on track as soon as he was feeling better. I wish I had used Adela with my first child. She's was understanding, kind and experienced."
