Testimonial for Nicole Sawyers Todd, CLD, CPPD, HCHD, CHCE, SM

Our baby was born by c section after three days of intermittent contractions. We got home from the hospital depleted. When I tried to breastfeed we could not latch so I commenced pumping. I got mastitis and then an abscess that required draining by a breast surgeon. I spent weeks on antibiotics, some of which I could barely walk or pick up our baby because I was so sick. 

We hired Nicole. She came at 10pm and left at 6am. In that time our baby never cried. He just got the sleep and bottles he needed. She taught our baby to sleep for long stretches at a time so that I could actually rest. She also gave him genuine love and care when I couldn’t. She showed up on time, cared for our child all night long, and left our house way nicer than it had been. I am in awe of her sleep training and her general baby wisdom. At five weeks our baby was sleeping six hours at a time, now he sometimes goes a full eight. She also taught us about dream feeding. It’s the best! 

Mostly what I appreciated about Nicole was that she genuinely loves babies and knows what they need. When we went to sleep at night we knew that he was happy and looked after and would be rested and calm in the morning. And probably still sleeping!

thanks to Nicole I got the sleep I needed to heal. Our baby got a big dose of love and great sleep training. He is two months old this week and last night slept for a full 8 hours. We are so grateful.
