Wes & Mena – 3.5 Years & 7 Months
As full time working parents, NOT getting a full night sleep with a 3.5yo and 7mo can place you at odds with your sanity, and add a whole new element of stress on an already stressful situation. My husband and I knew we needed help once we found ourselves with two kids waking up several times at night, to no avail. Enter Courtney, our knightess in shining armor, to save the night. I consider her the closest thing to a human magic wand, with her sensible explanations of not only what was happening, but WHY. Courtney’s open approach to our sleepless situation was incredibly reassuring that we are not in this alone, and so many parents struggle with the same issues. She was always available to take my questions, and listen without judgement. At no point did I ever feel like the goal we were setting out to do was to ‘fix’ our kids, but rather better understand what was going on, and what we, as parents, needed to change to create better habits for them. It is without reservation that I recommend Tiny Transitions to anyone struggling with their little one’s sleep and/or nap schedule.
Elle – 20 Months Old
The best thing we did for our baby and ourselves. Courtney was so helpful and always went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and understood every step of the process. I am amazed at how quickly our baby learned to be a great sleeper!
Kennedy – 2.5 Years Old
Courtney was an absolute miracle worker! In just a few short days, our daughter learned the new routine and it has been smooth sailing ever since. She is now sleeping 12 hours at night and my husband and I have our life back! We would whole-heartedly recommend Courtney to anyone. She takes the time to learn about your child and your family life in general and really creates a plan that will work within your specific environment. Courtney, you are simply amazing – thank you will never be enough!
Blair – 4 Months Old
I believe that this is the best investment that I’ve made on my child to date. There is nothing MORE important for a child or for a parent than for your child to have a healthy sleep routine. We constantly worry about the food we feed our children, they care they receive during the day– why not the sleep they receive at night? Having a well-rested child is essential to their mood and to my sanity as a parent. Courtney is SUCH an incredible individual to work with and we’ve been beyond happy to work with her. She listened attentively to all our concerns when sleep training our daughter and responded to any questions we may have. She made a customized plan for our daughter that worked like an absolute charm. I also love that from the time I decided to reach out to a sleep consultant to the time that I was connected with Courtney via the phone was one day. We were able to start sleep training our daughter by that weekend. The turn-around was MIRACULOUS. Which was perfect because I desperately needed a child who slept through the night by the time I reached out to Courtney. I also love that she allowed us to text her during the process (without guilt) to ask any questions we may have and to keep her updated on how it was going. Now my daughter is almost 2 and is an EXPERT sleeper. It has made such a positive impact on our life to have a child that sleeps consistently through the night and takes naps. Many of our friends do not invest in a sleep expert and have struggled through the first few years– is it REALLY worth it? I feel like we’ve been set up for success!
Colin & Finn – 7 Months Old
Garrett – 2 Years Old
Courtney was extremely knowledgeable and helped us every step of the way! Very available and responsive when we needed her, a great resource to have.
Carson – 6 Months Old
I had the pleasure of working with Rosie at Tiny Transitions. At the time I had a 6 month old who would not sleep through the night and was taking short naps throughout the day. I had already done a pretty good job at sleep training my son to fall asleep by himself but it wouldn’t last long. Rosie was able to help me transition him to two naps and sleep through the night. She was very patient with us. We had some bumps in the road including a short trip away from home/ schedule and some medial issues. I would definitely recommend her services; we learned a lot!
Lila – 14 Months Old
Sleep training with Courtney is an invaluable investment. We are now more than three months beyond the start and our daughter (now 15 months) has become a resilient sleeper. With a good bedtime routine, she’s been able to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night for an average of 10.5-11 hours per night. We’ve also been able to travel with her sleeping in pack in plays in hotels, cabins, other homes and even a cruise ship. We are so thankful for the assistance provided by Courtney and the predictability and consistency that we’ve experienced.
Maddox – 6 Months Old
Working with Courtney has been a wonderful experience. As first time parents you hear from everyone get ready to no longer sleep. After reaching out to Courtney that statement no longer haunts us. We are all sleeping! Courtney takes such great care and consideration into creating a sleep routine for your little one. As first time parents starting something new especially mixed with no sleep can be overwhelming and stressful. Courtney takes all of that out for you. She listens to your concerns and worries and provides a welcoming, trusted environment filled with encouragement. Reaching out to Courtney has been one of the best decisions we have made not only for our son but for ourselves.
Logan – 3.5 Years Old
I had a fantastic experience with Courtney. She took so much stress away by helping me get my 3.5 yo son to sleep and on a consistent pattern to make my life with two kids easier. I cannot recommend her enough. I’m glad I pulled the trigger on hiring a consultant who really knew how to help me. Thank you Courtney!
Daniel & Bridget – 10 Months Old
One of our twins (10 months) was a really poor sleeper, waking every few hours and unable to soothe himself back to sleep. He is our 4th child, and we were baffled by how horribly he slept. After going through the Tiny Transitions program, our baby now has the skills he needs to sleep through the night. When he sleeps, we sleep!! My husband and I are communicating with each other much better, as we are not total zombies. I can’t recommend Tiny Transitions enough!
Stella – 16 Months Old
If you’re like most parents, and struggling to get your little one to sleep, I highly recommend working with Rosie at Tiny Transitions. I first approached the “sleep training” idea a little skeptical, and quite frankly scared. I had the misconception that the only sleeping training method there was, was “Cry it Out”, and I wasn’t 100% comfortable with that. Rosie took the time to explain to me that, that wasn’t the case for sleep training, and there were a lot of different approaches. She helped me find a method that I was comfortable with, and that was perfect for my family. We started sleep training at 4.5 months, and she was sleeping falling asleep on her own within 3 nights. I’ll never forget the anxiety I had the first night, but she did great. It took somewhere between 30-40 minutes for her to fall sleep on her own, and slept through the entire night. The following night it took about 10-15 minutes, and by the third night she was sleep on her own within minutes. All through the way Tiny Transitions was there to coach me through, and just give me the moral support I needed. I had no idea what a large impact wake times had on a babies good night sleep. Rosie gave me all of the knowledge and tools I needed to set my daughter up for a successful night of sleep. I couldn’t have done it without them. Of all of the decisions I had to make as a first time mom, this was absolutely the best decision I made. My daughter is now 17 months, and falls sleep on her own EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, no matter where we are. She sleeps from 7pm to 6am-ish every night, and always wakes up with a smile on her face. BTW – my daughter took EVERY SINGLE NAP on me for the first 4+ months of her life. No more “nap jail” for me! Seeing is believing so enjoy the video from last night 🙂
Clare – 2 Years Old
Our 2 year old Clare is the youngest of 4, She was spoiled as a baby and never developed good sleep habits. Courtney did a great job helping us find a way to get her on track. We are happy to say that she now sleeps through the night consistently. Thanks to Courtney Mom and Dad are finally getting good nights sleep as well.
Julian – 4 Months Old
Cameron – 4 Months Old
When my son was four months old it was time to get him out of the rock n play at night and my arms for naptime as he was getting too big and needed the space to stretch in his crib. Courtney was great and walked me through each step and within the first week he was sleeping in his crib and by five and a half months sleeping 11.5 hours a night!!! Wow to be able to get a full nights sleep is amazing and every night the baby is so comfy and cozy in his crib. Thanks, Courtney! As a single Mom you gave me the confidence to walk the baby through each step in a caring and loving way so he will now know how to go to sleep and fall back asleep on his own as he grows. An amazing gift!
Teddy – 4 Months Old
Courtney was a lifesaver! At 4 months old, Teddy woke every 1-2 hours all night long. Teddy, my husband, and I were exhausted, but we couldn’t pinpoint the problem or find a solution, which led to frustration, anxiety, and even less sleep. With Courtney’s help, we determined why Teddy was waking and developed a plan to address his needs. Once we started the plan, we all, most importantly Teddy, slept great. Courtney also helped ease our stress and anxieties throughout the sleep training process by responding to emails at all hours of the day and night, talking on the phone without making us feel rushed, and helping us work through some unexpected issue that came up. And Courtney’s help did not end with sleep training; she had great advice on nursing, reflux, colic etc. My only regret is that I didn’t call Courtney sooner. If you want your child to sleep well at night, and as added bonus get some rest yourself, I definitely recommend Tiny Transitions.
Kevin – 2 Months Old
As a second time mom I knew I wanted to work on sleep training as early as possible. Rosie met me where I was at, helped me to understand my baby’s developmental stage and prepared me for what to expect as he grew and learned. Working with Rosie was so easy from the start, she was readily available, flexible, comforting, and clearly understood how sleep works for infants! She even helped me troubleshoot issues with my toddler so that I could work on a sleep routine for both kids. Highly recommend tiny Transitions to any new or seasoned parent, and Rosie exceeded expectations of a sleep training coach.
Karen – 4 Weeks Old
Courtney at Tiny Transitions is a great resource for a first time mom like me! I was overwhelmed and lost when I came home from the hospital. The only thing I really knew is that my newborn should eat about every 2-3 hours. I was never instructed on any of the rest. I contacted Courtney when my daughter was 4 weeks old and I am so happy that I did. Courtney gave me valuable information to make our daughter a great little sleeper now and through the years. It has saved me from establishing bad habits with my daughter that would be hard to break later on. I also am thankful for the much needed rest my husband and I are now getting because of those successful tools given to us by Courtney. I would highly recommend Courtney for anyone with a newborn so you can lay the ground work now for a great sleeper for their entire lifetime!
Hunter – 18 Months Old
Miracles do happen! With the help from tiny transitions I’ve been able to enjoy a full nights rest again!! 5+ stars!
Hannah – 11 Months Old
My wife and I were suffering through our 11th month of no sleep when I broke down and searched for a sleep consultant. Of all the profiles, Courtney’s jumped out at me. We talked on the phone and before we knew it we were having our first consultation and executed on a plan to take our daughter, who for the first 11 months of her life had slept thru the night 4 times. She typically gets up 1-3 times a night with no level of consistency. After the first week following Courtney’s strategy, our daughter slept thru the night every night. She has not had an issue since. She is napping on a schedule and adjusts when her schedule changes. She is also sleeping thru the night with no issue. It is a life saving item for my wife and I. Courtney is amazing and so positive it can’t help but get one excited to give their child better sleep.
Evelyn & Emelia – Newborn & 18 Months
Courtney has helped me with my 2 children over the last couple years. Both very different babies. She is amazing! She not only helps get your child to sleep, she educates you about baby sleep needs at each stage in their development; setting you and your family up for the future as your child grows.
Chloe – Newborn
I can’t say enough good things about Courtney Zentz and Tiny Transitions. As a new mother, I was feeling pretty anxious imagining a world with endless sleepless nights. After working with Courtney, I not only felt calmer, but looked at nighttime sleep and daytime naps in a whole new way – it was like an ah-ha moment. Tiny Transitions empowered me to help my baby learn the skill of sleeping by providing the tools and framework needed to do just that. My baby is a fantastic sleeper and I’m a better mom because of it!
Erin – 4 Months Old
Courtney has been such a wonderful resource for our family. From the first time we spoke to her when our daughter was 4 months old to now that our daughter is over 2, Courtney has been a life saver for us on multiple occasions, helping to navigate the many transitions along the way. Can’t recommend her highly enough!
Natalia – 2.5 Years Old
We had such a great experience with Courtney! Our daughter was 2.5 when we started working with Courtney. For just over 2 years our daughter had been a great sleeper, after some sleep training as an infant, and then things tanked hard and fast! We struggled for months trying to get our sleep back on track with no success. We were dealing with fighting bedtime, fighting nap time, multiple night wakings, early morning wakings, etc. Courtney took the time to listen to us and understand our situation before coming up with our sleep plan. Her company is appropriately named – Tiny Transitions – because that’s exactly what our plan was! She laid out the small, incremental steps we needed to take with our daughter to get her sleeping consistently and independently once again. And, maybe even of more value, she helped us to identify when things started to “creep” and bedtime began to pick-up some old, bad habits. She equipped us with the strategies and techniques we needed to keep things on track going forward, because as we all know, toddlers love to test boundaries! Our progress was not rapid, but it was steady, and Courtney was there with us. Her support and encouragement were just what we needed. The text support was fantastic, and she regularly followed up with emails and calls. Everyone in our home is sleeping consistently again – thank you, Courtney!
Ariella – 3.5 Years Old
We had a fantastic experience with Tiny Transitions Sleep Consulting. Our 3.5-year-old was not able to fall asleep at night without mommy staying in her room. Some nights it would only be ten minutes, while other nights it was 45 minutes to an hour plus. She would make a lot of excuses, especially asking for more milk. This led to her waking up numerous times every night and needing both those crutches (mommy and milk) to fall back asleep. We reached out to Courtney, when sleep got to the point of so much anxiety and restlessness, that we knew we needed help. Courtney responded to us right away and jumped on a call the next day to have a consultation, we told her a little bit about our situation, and she immediately made me feel supported and not alone. We knew we made the right decision. After providing more details about our daughter, she came up with a great approach to help our daughter with her sleep habits. Day 1 was not easy, but Courtney was there for us through it all. Checking in and reminding us that it will get easier. After a few days of getting our little one to fall asleep without getting up and making excuses, she was going to bed with no struggle and no milk. By day 4, Mommy was able to leave the room after a couple minutes, and our daughter fell asleep quickly and through the night. On top of falling asleep quickly, our daughter woke up in the morning extremely proud of her accomplishments and that she was on her way to becoming an all star sleeper. It has now been a month since we began working with Courtney, we have traveled, been away from the house, and through it all, our daughter has been going to bed with no struggle, not needing mommy in the room, and sleeping through the night. Courtney gave us great tools, systems, and ways of talking to our daughter that really helped us all be successful. She continuously checked in and was available if we had any questions. As any sleep deprived parent knows, it can feel very lonely and hard. Courtney immediately showed us, we were not alone, and we could do it. Bedtime is no longer something we dread. So now the question is, what to do with all that extra time? Thank you, Courtney!
Elijah – 4 Months Old
Courtney is a very nice person to work with. When my baby was 4 months old, he used to wake up every 3 hours day and night. I was so desperate and lacking sleep. I looked around and I found Courtney. After having a consultation in March with her, I decided to hire her service. Courtney assured me that she’ll be there with me all throughout the process and yes! She’s there all the way for me regardless of the time! I text her a lot and she responded very quickly. She’s very professional and cares a lot! I cannot thank you enough Courtney for helping me with Elijah. Now he sleeps very well! I’m getting so much sleep now PLUS my husband and I can now go out at night time.
Mollie – 17 Months Old
I am so happy my husband and I made this call. Our daughter (now 17 months) was struggling with sleep, and her temperament (hence also ours) was altered everyday. She was exhausted, overtired, and so were we. We were constantly adjusting the plan in hopes of getting some sleep whether it be on the couch, our bed, rocking chair, Ferber method, you name it. Going to bed became a point of stress instead of relief. Finally, I found Courtney online during a 2 AM wake up, and called her the next day. She got back to us so quickly, reassured us things would get better, provided us with options and worked with us during the transition phase. Within two weeks, our daughter was sleeping through the night. In later weeks she helped us to better understand ways to juggle a social calendar that changes routine, and ways to keep her sleeping. It’s been amazing, I am so thankful to her for all the joy (and sleep) she has brought back into our household. Thanks Courtney!
Grayson – 18 Months Old
Amazing how Courtney turned my son into a sleeping giant! His sleeping habits were terrible and primarily it was because I had no idea what his habits should be being a single parent. He seemed to always be teething or in a sleep regression. THANK YOU for allowing my son and I to get well needed sleep when it’s SUPPOSED to happen!
Farrah – 3 Months Old
Courtney was such a lifesaver! Our little one had a few rough weeks that would likely have lasted so much longer if it weren’t for Courtney’s coaching! We now have a very happy, healthy and sound sleeper!!
Anna & William – Newborn Twins
Courtney is amazing. We have twins and she put together a plan before we started sleep training. This was a personalized multi step /mullti phase plan. We followed it and she advised us along the way. Our twins now sleep through the night. Our plan didn’t just have night time sleep, but also included naps. She is the best Sleep Consultant and will work with you and your situation. Thank you Courtney!!
Cameron – 12 Months Old
I was convinced I had a second baby that “just didn’t like to sleep”, “missed me too much”, and was “starving”, so I kept making excuses as to why he was getting up all night long. Courtney formulated a plan that guided us toward teaching our son to sleep in three days with very little crying. With him sleeping 12 hours straight now, our entire family is happier. Courtney was kind, accessible, and developed a plan that worked within our comfort zone. The only thing we wish now is that we had done this sooner!
James – 6 Months Old
Courtney was great to work with. She answered all my questions in a timely manner and calmed my anxieties! We started working with her when our son was a little over 6 mo old and was only taking 30 min naps. She helped us understand and adjust his sleep patterns so now he’s not only sleeping well at night but taking nice long naps during the day. If we have any future issues We will definitely be reaching out. Total life saver!
Joseph – 4 Months Old
I called Courtney because my 4 month old son was going through a sleep regression. He was waking every 1-2 hours and did not know how to fall asleep without A LOT of help. I reached out to my mommy friends for help and luckily someone recommended Courtney. Courtney spent time talking to me and getting to know my situation. She set up a detailed plan to follow and supported us through every step of the process. Within a week, my son was sleeping so much better. He now naps/ sleeps better than ever, falls asleep on his own, and has eliminated all night feedings. We are all so much happier because we are sleeping.
Mikey – 3.5 Months Old
I cannot say enough good things about Courtney. When I called her, my son was 3.5 months old, exclusively breastfed and had woken up 13 times the previous night. I had been spending my days in nap jail and was in a constant state of sleep deprivation. I was beside myself! I started working with Courtney the following weekend and we saw results within just a few days. She is very hands on and is always available to answer questions. She was so reassuring when I had doubts about my son being able to fall asleep independently and really supported me through the whole process. Almost 2 months later, my son falls asleep independently for every nap and bedtime. I now spend my evenings having dinner with my husband or doing something for myself, get a good night’s rest and wake up to my happy, well-rested baby!! Such a beautiful thing! Overall, I HIGHLY recommend!
Honestly, my husband & I contacted Courtney as soon as we brought our newborn twins home from the hospital. She assured us, that she would be happy to help us set up a regiment for our babies. She continually pepped talked us through the rough early weeks and months. We just reached the three month mark (we survived) and Courtney stepped in with her unbelievable sleep plan, we are finally getting some sleep!! It truly is amazing how much her plan works. BOTH of our babies are sleeping through the night!!! It’s honestly life changing! My husband and I thought we would never sleep again, we feel like new people now that we are ALL finally getting the sleep we need! We can’t thank Courtney enough for her professionalism and expertise!
Josie – 9 Months Old
Courtney changed our life! Sounds dramatic but it is the honest truth. We had not slept since our daughter was born- fast forward 9 months and we were zombies and so was our baby! We were skeptical about hiring someone and I have to admit we called a few people to find the right person- Courtney was so confident and spoke with me for over an hour, plus she had kids of her own so we felt super comfortable and her confidence is what sold me. She came to our house and gave us a sleep plan, we began to follow the plan and within a week our daughter who had been waking 8x a night, slept right through! Her naps are predicatable now and she goes down easily and happily to bed! Courtney provided non stop texting and email support to us daily since the first week was the most challenging she was there for us every second of the way! She also gives you the solid research and science behind why sleep is so important for our children’s health. We still keep in contact with her and she always gets right back to us when we need her, we cannot thank her enough for what she has done for our family!
Maddie – 6 Weeks Old
We were referred to Tiny Transitions Sleep Consulting when our daughter, Madelyn, was only a few weeks old and contacting Courtney was the best decision we ever made! Our daughter had her days and nights mixed up and would sleep most of the day and be up from 9pm-2am every night. Courtney gave us the tools we needed to identify Maddie’s natural sleep cues, which in turn led to more consistent naps, an earlier bedtime and happier parents. Most importantly, we were able to teach Maddie the crucial skill of soothing herself to sleep. Courtney is absolutely fantastic and we can’t thank her enough for everything she has done to support us!
Abbie & Kevin
Courtney has been such an asset over the past few years when it came to providing guidance for getting our two kids to sleep better. We’ve been lucky – our kids are both great sleepers by nature – but our efforts as parents certainly helped to nurture their innate abilities. We put a plan in place and created a schedule that worked to meet our individual children’s needs, and we stuck to it! Every. Single. Day. Sometimes it feels a little bit like groundhog day but we took comfort in the fact that we knew our children were getting the sleep they needed to support healthy growth and development. Courtney helped us through nighttime waking issues (cased by colds, teething, growth spurts, and sleep regressions), counseled us through the dreaded “nap strike”, and helped us to stay on track, always reminding us that when children sleep well, it has as much to do with the parents as it does the child (and maybe more!). Courtney is an asset to any family who values sleep and is looking for guidance on how to create (and stick to) a schedule that will create great sleep habits and reduce or eliminate sleepless nights for children and their parents.
