“For the first two years of her life, my toddler Roen, was a pretty great sleeper. She had no major problems….until one day, she suddenly began refusing to nap in her crib. She was too young to drop a nap and I could tell she was tired. I’d put her down for the nap and she’d cry and beg to get out, then immediately fall asleep in the stroller or on the couch. As a working mom, I rely on this nap time to get things done! But most importantly, I knew her little body and brain needed the sleep. This nap resistance went on for a few weeks before I became completely desperate and reached out to Valentina for help. One of her first steps, after doing a home visit to check out out our sleep environment, was to share some basic tips, which we implemented immediately. I still can’t believe how quickly things improved. The tips are simple, but we needed a reminder of how important they are and how effective they can be. Adding them to our routine didn’t only help Roen’s sleep….they helped our sleep as parents!!! In one night, our bedtime routine had changed for the better. I couldn’t believe it!!! We continued working with Valentina who’s approach is completely gentle. We chose a sleep training method that was 100% gentle, in fact, which involved me falling asleep with Roen. I loved it as I’ve never been interested in doing conventional ‘sleep training’ with my baby. Every day, I’d check in with Valentina and she’d provide tips on how to handle the day, nap times etc. In the end, my knowledge about children’s sleep grew exponentially! I now feel so empowered when it comes to Roen’s sleep — I know how to handle all situations thanks to the information Valentina’s shared with us. But I was most impressed with how Valentina was able to think outside the box when it came to our unique situation which. In the end, she determined that our issues surrounding the nap weren’t actually sleep related…they were caused by something else entirely! Thanks to Valentina’s wisdom and ability to see the big picture, I was able to focus on another element of Roen’s life which has totally helped her sleep and our relationship. We were so so so happy to have connected with Valentina and get to the bottom of Roen’s issue! I truly was blown away by her services. She is wise beyond her years, completely supportive and absolutely lovely. I would recommend Valentina to anyone.” Erin & Darren

“Our son was about 8 months old when Valentina coached us. Our bedtime routine took forever because he wouldn’t fall asleep. Vaidan was waking up multiple times in the night to nurse. He had to nurse back to sleep otherwise he would just scream and scream. He was waking up at 5am every morning and was just all around grumpy. Nap times were the same and he had to be nursed to sleep. Now Vaidan sleeps 11.5 hours through the night. He goes to sleep on his own. When friends are over and we go to put him down and come out a few minutes later, they always say “thats it?” in amazement. He knows his routine and we put him down awake and he goes to sleep on his own. Sometimes he may wake up in the middle of the night but he puts himself back to sleep within a few minutes. He generally wakes up happy and talking to his stuffies around 7am. Valentina was very knowledgable about sleep coaching and we are ever grateful for her expertise. We have a bit of a different ritual for night time than she originally suggested but culturally for my husband it was important we did it that way and she was non-judgemental. The plan she created was very gentle. Vaidan did cry in the beginning but nothing compared to before Valentina started helping us and since we were consistent it quickly stopped. Valentina was quick to answer all of our questions in her calm manner. We were so exhausted before she started working with us and now we get some alone time and a full night’s sleep. Thank you Valentina from the bottom of our hearts! There is no better gift for new parents than the gift of sleep”.

“LIFE-CHANGING!!! With Valentina’s tireless help, we went from having an 18 month old who would only sleep on/close to us, waking up all night and taking very short naps, to a daughter who happily sleeps in her own crib through the night and naps for hours every single day. We were hesitant to hire a sleep coach because we weren’t interested in leaving our daughter to cry alone in her room. When her sleep just continued to worsen, Valentina stepped in as our coach. She is an amazing communicator and worked with us through each step of the training, custom tailoring a program that was designed around our specific asks. After weeks of prepping our daughter to finally sleep in her own bed, there were almost no tears at all when the big day arrived. We, on the other hand, obviously cried tears of joy at suddenly being able to eat dinner together, watch movies and sleep without getting kicked in the face and woken up every hour. It has changed our lives and our daughter is now much happier now that she is sleeping more than she has over the past year. Thank you Valentina! We actually don’t even know how to express how grateful we are! ~

My husband Gaspare, my baby Tommaso and I all agree that it was a true gift meeting Valentina…

This was our situation a few months ago… 

Our baby Tommaso was 15-months-old and he sleeps with us in our bed. He was waking up countless times during the night looking for milk. Neither of us were getting enough rest. During the day, he napped without any consistency. We tried searching for solutions, but no luck. Nothing worked. I really want to continue breastfeeding on demand, but we both work and get up very early in the morning. Soon Tommaso will go back to the daycare. We didn’t know what to do! 

Then, we met Valentina… 

We started comprehensive baby sleep training, which was focused, consistent, and well guided by Valentina, who is helping us understand Tommaso’s sleep rhythms, sleep cues, his general sleep needs. We started focusing on those signs and almost immediately, things started to improve. We committed to her program knowing that we’d need to focus on Tommaso and help him get the full amount of sleep he needed. At first, we were a bit sad because this new state of mind seemed so different from what we were used to…but we figured the proper rest we’d be getting would be worth it. 

To our amazement, after only two weeks of sticking to the personalized plan Valentina created for us, here’s what we achieved: Tommaso now sleeps 7:30pm to 6:00am…straight…with two naps during the day! We still can’t even believe it. We finally get to sleep again!

We gained so much from this experience with Valentina. My husband and I trust her so much and we have endless gratitude for the way she helped us listen to our son to learn what he truly needed.

Besides being extremely knowledgeable when it comes to children’s sleep, Valentina is a strong motivator. She is also always positive when it comes to even the most difficult situations. We really felt like we were on a team with her — we felt like we were going to be successful, and we were. Her services exceeded our expectations. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Valentina!

Now, I enjoy every minute of the bedtime routine. I carefully lead my son towards sleep: I read to him, we cuddle up close and we relax together before saying “night night”. And there are no tears at all! All of the spare time we now have means more time together as a couple for my husband and I. It feels unbelievable…but it’s true! 

I highly recommend Valentina’s services to all the moms and dads out there who are as desperate and sleepy as we were!!

My husband and I decided to rely on Valentina because our baby after the first 4 months in which he slept all night began to wake up one, two, three up to even four times a night. The only way to make him sleep again was to latch him.  

We waited until he was one year convinced that with the introduction of cow’s milk things would have improved and instead it did not happen. We were really tired, unmotivated and the approach of the night was becoming a trauma.

At that point we decided to ask Valentina for help. Valentina is really prepared and after having confronted with her we started the most suitable program for us.

After only 4 days I weaned Pietro at night and after a few days Pietro started to sleep through the night! We could not believe it and it seemed like a dream! But it is the reality: we can sleep again at night.

Pietro has also started to eat more and to regularize his days and consequently also ours. My husband and I can dedicate ourselves to our baby with more serenity and we see him more rested and happy.

Valentina has always been kind and helpful and we can not do anything but recommend her to everyone!

Thanks again Valentina !!!
