Before Alison Bevan’s help Henry was waking up every 1-2 hours all night long. He started off in his crib, but after waking up the first time I usually resorted to nursing him back to sleep. We would try to put him back in his crib, but he ultimately ended up in our bed for at least half the night, where he tossed and turned and still continued to wake up. Early in the morning, for fear of waking up our other little boy, we would take Henry downstairs and sleep with him on the couch to enable us all to get a few hours more sleep. After 13 months of this we were exhausted, frustrated and desperate for a change. Alison helped us get our life back! Henry now points to his bed at night, lies down with a smile and sleeps for 11-12 hours without waking up. We can’t believe the remarkable difference in just a few weeks! Thank you Alison!

Alison was full of knowledge about children and sleep and knew just when and how to give the information. She was also an incredible listener and able to pin point problem areas and generate a very peaceful discussion on ways to solve our daughter’s sleep issues. She exuded warmth and positive energy – just talking to her was reassuring. Every time we implemented a new part of the plan we saw an instant improvement in our daughter’s sleep. My husband and I were truly amazed!
Anne – mother of a six month old
After months of sleepless nights and napless days, we finally decided that we needed help. I was extremely hesitant to seek sleep help for fear of being told that I was doing everything wrong and that the only answer was to let our baby cry alone in their room. We first met Alison when my baby was 8 months old and after just one hour I felt like there was light at the end of the tunnel! Her sleep began to improve in just a few days! Alison’s daily check in’s were key – they kept us on track and helped to keep us motivated. Alison is such a caring listener, and her willingness to work within our comfort zone made the process work for us. To anyone who is wondering if they need help – call Alison! We can’t thank her enough for helping make our entire family happier and well rested!

I was so skeptical when we started, but it was easier then I ever dreamed and has worked better then I ever could have imagined! And he seems so much happier now that he’s rested! Had I known, I would have tried this 2 months ago! We are thrilled! Thank you so much!
Kelly – mother of a 7 month old
As you know, when Carol hired you to help us with Tyler’s sleep problems I thought she was crazy. I thought the whole idea was ridiculous and a waste of money. Well, I’m writing to tell you I’m eating humble pie for breakfast. We put Tyler in his crib last night, kissed him goodnight, left the room and didn’t hear a peep until 7 am. Carol’s talking about sending you flowers – I told her I’m ready to spring for a BMW!!
David – father of a 20 month old
I’d like to once again to express my gratitude for your wonderful advice and technique. It truly helped our family and made our lives much happier! I no longer have to stay in the room to wait for the kids to fall asleep! The best thing is that my daughter does NOT want to go to MY bed at all!… she wants to be in HER OWN bed.! I may sound inappropriate, but I LOOOVE YOU!!!!
Sasha – mother of a one year old and a 2 year old
Alison was the only person that recognized my son’s sleep apnea. His pediatricians and even specialists said that he was just a child that didn’t sleep well. Without her we would still be in the dark about our son’s medical issues. She helped us to clear up so much confusion and was truly the only voice of reason in a very long struggle that ended with successful adenoid surgery for our son’s sleep apnea. She saved us!
Eva – mother of a one year old
Alison, I can’t thank you enough for your help to get back our family’s sanity. Alex now sleeps through the night and likes to sleep in his crib! We are all more rested and much happier:) I don’t think I could have done this without you. Thank you for helping me feel like I wasn’t alone. I am your biggest fan and am recommending you to everyone!
Gabriella- mother of a one year old
I never thought I would be writing this, but after a week and a half Zac is sleeping through the night, in his crib, and actually looks forward to going to sleep “like a big boy!” Thank you, thank you, thank you Alison! We didn’t think it would be possible, or easy, and we were SO wrong!
Jamie – mother of a two year old
Alison is amazing! We had a three year old who wouldn’t go to bed, wouldn’t sleep through the night, would come into our room at all hours, etc. Alison helped us and in less than three weeks she was sleeping through the night! She is awesome!!! Thanks soooo much!!!
Liz – mother of a three year old
Alison, I don’t know how we can ever thank you enough for all that you’ve done for us. I wasted so much energy trying to do what the books said was the right thing to do. You were a voice of reason for us – so sensible and supportive during this crazy time. Having a sleeping baby is amazing, and we’re telling everyone we know about you!
Kaye – mother of a 5 month old
Alison, thank you! It’s really amazing! Like clockwork I put him in the crib and don’t hear a peep out of him until morning.It definitely gives me time to enjoy quality time with my husband. I can never repay you for what you’ve done for my family.
Christina – mother of a 9 month old
When we first met Alison our daughter was taking 20 minute naps twice a day, crashing to bed at 5:30 pm, awake for multiple night feeds and up for the day at 4:30 am. I was seriously strung out and saw no way out. Within 3 days of working with Alison our daughter was putting herself to sleep, taking two hour naps and eliminating all night feeds. Every idea Alison offered brought more rest into our world. She is an amazing and compassionate listener, and helped restore order to our lives. Alison Bevan changed my life. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but my baby is now a sleeper!
Anne – mother of a 7 month old
Alison, you are a miracle worker! If anyone had told me that our little guy would actually be pointing to the crib, asking to go to bed and sleeping through the night I would have told them they were crazy! We can’t thank you enough for the wisdom, empathy and support you’ve given us throughout this process. We will never be able to repay you!
Casey – mother of a 22 month old
Thank you for guiding us through this journey. Making changes was scary, but we quickly learned that C really was capable of learning how to put herself to sleep if we just gave her the chance! To be able to stay with her and help her learn vs leaving her to cry (which is what everyone else told us to do) felt right and we know it made a difference for her, too. We’ll be singing your praises all over town!
Chris – father of a 13 month old
I’m actually in tears writing this (tears of joy.) I just kiss her goodnight, she says “night, night mama”, grabs her bunny, rolls over and goes to sleep! We’ve been waiting almost three years for that to happen!!! Thank you just seems so inadequate. Please know that you’ve made a huge difference in our lives, and that we will be forever grateful. Why on earth did we wait so long to call you!?!
Janet – mother of a 3.5 year old
I feel like I’m dreaming. Not one peep last night from 7:00 pm until 6:30 am and she woke up all smiles! If I could leap through the computer and kiss you I would – and David would, too! You are our official sleep savior!
Jackie – mother of a six month old
Knowing that you were there to talk to every morning and getting such realistic and practical advice made such a difference for us, and for our baby. She is so much happier, and I feel so much more in control. What a learning experience this has been. Thank you for everything!
Sandra – mother of a 19 month old
After 8 months of not sleeping, I reached out to this wonderful woman Alison Bevan who helped me through a gentle sleep training with my daughter. She is very attentive to your needs and your concerns. She won’t push you to any harsh training and in fact would suggest to slow down here and there to make your little one feel more secure and comfortable. I talked to her every single day and adjusted the way I approached the night based on the previous night. I couldn’t be happier with her. If you are looking for someone to help you with sleep habits, please reach out to her. She is a gem. So professional and kind.
