Missy has saved my life! I had co slept with my first and it was amazing. But with my second it nearly ruined me. I should have done it sooner but I was overwhelmed. I met Missy and practically begged for help. I couldn’t deal with the 4 to 6 hours of sleep I was getting every night. This had gone on nearly 2 years. Missy assured me my son would take to the sleep training within a few nights and I was skeptical but she was spot on. Im now a happy sleeper with my own bed back, time to myself in the evenings & my sleep quality has rocketed. My son has had developmental improvements since he sleeps better and the fussy eating as stopped as a result of no breastfeeding through the night! And we are still as close as ever. I worried this would all be a huge strain on my son with the change but it wasn’t at all and he is so much better off for it. Missy is brilliant, friendly, so professional and approachable. She gave me full support throughout and when my son was poorly and had a sleep regression, she was there to help me navigate that too. If you’re on the fence, just dive right in because she will save your health & sanity like she did mine 🙂

We had such an incredible experience working with Missy to help our son with his sleep. He went from waking up and nursing multiple times a night, to happily sleeping through the night! She was so supportive and attentive to our individual family needs and was there each step of the way. It was life changing! I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to get a good nights rest!

Missy changed our life!! We were so desperate. Our 9 month old would only contact nap or while in the vehicle. Bedtime was even worse. For months she’d only co-sleep. We were exhausted and had tried everything to get her sleeping in her crib. Fast forward to the FIRST night of Missy’s sleep plan and guidance and our daughter slept in her own CRIB all night. It was a miracle. In 3 short weeks we now have a baby that can fall asleep independently, in her crib for both naps and overnights. A million thank you's to you Missy!

After trying sleep training by ourselves for 6 weeks with no success we decided to give sleep training a last chance and reach out to Missy. I had no hope, I never thought our baby could sleep through the night. Eliot was 10 months and still waking up 3-4 times a night needing to be nursed to go back to sleep ! Working with Missy was exactly what we needed. After the first night I was already ready to stop but she had the best encouragement and kept us going. 3 weeks later we now have a baby that sleeps through his nights every night ! Still can’t believe that our hypersensitive colicky baby can now get some great rest ! Missy his the best! So supportive and caring! THE BEST !

My wife and I worked with Missy and honestly, we cannot speak more highly about our experience! Before working with Missy, our 7-month-old son was waking two to three times per night and napped inconsistently, if at all. Because of this, my wife and I were always exhausted and our son was often overtired and irritable.

With a clear, actionable plan from Missy, and with just a few week's work, we were able to break bad long-held habits and get our son sleeping through the night (12-13 hours uninterrupted!!) and napping at predictable times and for consistent lengths during the day. This changed the quality of sleep, our relationship and, most importantly, improved our son's overall well-being.

Missy was a lovely human and consummate professional who struck just the right balance between empathy and redirection to help everyone succeed. Our work together was a game-changer. Run, don't walk, to her if you need help getting your kid to sleep!

We had great results from working with Missy. We got off the rollercoaster ride of never knowing if or when my 17month old would nap and on to a consistent schedule. Reading books about gentle sleep training and infant sleep were informative but couldn't provide the accountability, moral support, customized and nuanced suggestions that working with Missy did. Changing habits are difficult and support is key to making them successful. Missy is awesome!

Missy held my hand through everything. She was my cheerleader, coach, therapist and mom friend helping through every phase throughout our sleep process. My daughter now has a predictable solid schedule and puts herself to sleep and stays asleep ! A happy rested parent means I can be a better mom to both my children during the day not to mention my daughter is getting the appropriate amount of sleep for her age so she is happier also! The tools she helped us instill are invaluable. She met the individual needs of my daughter crafting a solid plan and gave us the tools and information how to execute it. I am forever grateful for her support and encouragement as we navigated this important life skill.

Working with Missy was a game-changer for us! We started working with Missy and Say Yes to the Rest when our son, Jack, was about 7 months old. He had been co-sleeping with us since he was born, and naps were typically spent snuggled with someone rather than on his own. Jack is our third (and final) child so part of me wanted to hold onto his “babiness” for as long as I could and putting him in his own crib felt like I was giving that up. But after talking to Missy about the process, and everything I know about the importance of sleep (both for Jack and also for me) I knew it was time. I would be lying if I said it was easy. The first few days were certainly the hardest but after we got over the 5-day regression it was smooth sailing. Any time I had a question, Missy was right there to walk me through it. She comforted me and gave me guidance when I felt like I was failing. She supported me when Jack was sick and I took him back into our bed for a few nights and she was there to listen to me when I was feeling sad about not having him co-sleep with us. At the end of our time together Jack was sleeping through the night, where before he was waking 2-3 times and his naps went from 30 minutes to 90+ during the day. I was so surprised at how quickly and well he took to the training and I am looking forward to many restful nights to come! Thank you so much for everything Missy!"

I reached out to Missy at 2am while I was attempting to rock my 21 month old to sleep for the past 4 hours. I also had a newborn that I was up with that night as well. I had reached my breaking point and I needed to do SOMETHING to get my child to sleep. After many months of failed DIY attempts to get my son to sleep with countless middle of the night 'Google Searches' "Why won't my kid sleep?" I remembered seeing Missy at Toys R US and decided to reach out. I have to admit I was super skeptical about it working. I was convinced my child was just one of those kids that just wouldn't sleep. After a 15 minute phone call the next day, Missy was confident she could get our son sleeping. Within 1 week he had started napping again and sleeping through the night. Fast forward to the end of the 3 week period he consistently naps and sleeps at night. Getting sleep for our family again was worth every penny. I was also wondering how to maintain the sleep after the program and Missy had resources for that too. If you are like me and on the fence about sleep consulting, just do it. It's so worth it... and there is a reason you are reading this review 😉

This was the best thing we could have done for our son and for ourselves! Highly recommend Say Yes To The Rest to anyone with littles that need help sleeping! Amazing outcome, you won’t be disappointed!
Mom to 1 Year Old
Would I recommend Missy? ABSOLUTELY! We went from nursing to sleep, co-sleeping, contact napping and having a colicky baby with reflux, to having an amazing little sleeper who is SO much happier, developing so quickly, is content and fully able to manage his reflux! Missy helped us manage our emotions and expectations with sleep and got us on track. She was with us every step of the way and helped us stay consistent. We feel confident in our little ones sleep (and ourselves) now, finally feel more hands-free, get some one-on-one time to spend with our oldest son and have our evenings back to keep our marriage happy and moving forward. THANK YOU SO MUCH MISSY! We could not have done this without your help and expertise. You truly are a Godsend. Cheers! Rae & Brandon Smith

If you are on the fence like we were about hiring a sleep consultant (specifically Missy), just do it! We chose Missy because she provided a personal, customized, one on one experience versus the other sleep training options where you feel like you are just a customer left to go on your way. Our 9 month old was waking up a minimum of twice a night which required feeding and rocking back to sleep. He could not self sooth and his naps were no longer than 40min up to 4 times a day. Our mental health and sanity were deteriorating and our son was constantly tired. After a short time with Missy our son sleeps through the night and takes 2 naps a day. He is a happier, well rested baby, who is now on a more predictable schedule with sleep and feeding and our entire family has benefited from Missy's guidance!

We are thrilled that we finally worked with Missy! Our kiddo is thriving, and we have some of our sanity back (as much as parents of a toddler can, that is)! I no longer have to rock my kiddo to sleep for naps, he can put himself back to sleep on his own, and bed time is stress-free and easy, and he sleeps through the night. Missy tailored a plan specifically for our family and child’s needs. She was able to help us tweak things as we moved through the program to better accommodate our particular situations. She provided guidance and support throughout, and she listened to our needs and preferences. We are so pleased with everything, and our Little Man is thriving more. And we’re all sleeping more!

I was desperate before reaching out to Missy with my little one waking several times a night and taking very short naps. Missy was very supportive and got us started on a plan in which we made small changes that made a big difference. The coaching was as much for us as for our little one in terms of helping my partner and I with how to manage wake ups while our little one learned to sleep. And he now does sleep full nights and naps are longer and predictable. The support Missy provided us was above and beyond. She supported us in the lead up to a big family trip across time zones and made sure we were back on track sleep wise when we returned home. I’m so glad I reached out when I did and got the support to help my little one (and my partner and I) to get the sleep we all so desperately needed. Thank you Missy!

Missy was amazing! Before Missy, my daughter had to be rocked to sleep and then would wake up an hour later and not go back in her crib, but we had to bring her to bed with us. Every nap, I had to hold her as well, otherwise her nap would only last 20 mins. After the first night, Dani slept through the night! In her own crib! And she was there for me whenever I had questions or doubts. I almost backed out numerous times, but Missy called me every time and we talked it out. I am so glad I went through with it. 5/5 would recommend!
Mom to 19 Month Old
After 8 months of co-sleeping, multiple night wakings, multiple night feeds and a tired cranky babe in the mornings we decided to work with Missy to help get our son West the sleep he needs! Missy made a schedule designed just for our son, she gave us so many helpful tips! She was cheering us on the whole time, she took the time to listen and answer any questions I had! We hit some bumps in the road along the way, I’m not gonna lie it wasn’t easy! But our son is now sleeping 11+ hours a night! Having amazing day time naps! Learned how to self soothe himself to sleep, we don’t have to feed him to sleep or rock him to sleep anymore! He is just a totally different boy in the mornings and throughout the day! My boyfriend and I now get to enjoy evenings together, a full night sleep, and a peace of mind knowing our son is safely sleeping in his crib on his own!! If your on the fence of sleep training we strongly recommend! We didn’t want to do the CIO and this was far from that! We were there the whole time supporting our son while he was learning these new skills! It was a hard 2 weeks but totally worth it! we are so so grateful for everything Missy helped us with!

"Missy pulled us out of a trench of very poor sleep that was resulting in diminishing health, increasing and anxiety, and stressed kids too. We had been slogging through the nights with our 3 year old twin girls who were resistant to bedtime, constantly waking up crying with many demands, and eventually ending up in our bed leaving us with extremely restless nights. Missy got us on track with our girls accepting bedtime and falling asleep on their own, sleeping through the nights in their OWN BEDS, and even helped us get one of the girls not yet night potty trained staying dry through the night! As we now are able to catch up on our sleep debt, sleep and REM cycles are returning to our lives, health and resilience is improving for all of us, stress and anxiety is reducing in our household, and it is all making for more harmony and better days as a family. She also helped us get our 7 year old son cooperating better with us when getting ready for school in the mornings and for bed at night, and helping with a few chores around the house even! Missy is extremely approachable, and understanding. She is professional, timely, and consistent with follow up and problem solving through the hiccups and standoffs that come with sleep training. Her professional, organized, and friendly demeanor made us feel very comfortable being open with her. As parents we are becoming more rested and less stressed which makes us better parents. Our kids are thriving, learning boundaries, and more cooperative. As a family our bond is stronger and we are having more fun together. If you are struggling to get through each day and night with your kids, finding yourself desperate for sleep and balance, stop suffering through the madness and connect with Missy. She will turn your situation around and your family will benefit from her expertise more than you expect! You, and your health, and your family are worth it!"

Missy was incredible! We were struggling with getting our twins to sleep and she helped us get them on the same schedule and sleeping a full 12 hours each night. Sleep sounds like a simple task to teach your baby but sometimes it helps to call in the experts. We cannot thanks Missy enough for the calm she has brought to our home via more restful sleep.

Say Yes to the Rest was fantastic! My daughter finally sleeps on her own! Missy was so helpful!
Dad to 2.5 Year Old
Missy has helped me and my 14 month old so much! She has been with me every step of the way, even when it was her down time. My daughter went from waking up every two hours to sleeping through the night in just a few days. We are changing her plan a little now and she has been there to answer every question I have! If you need any help with your little one I highly recommend missy and say yes to rest! Thank you again so much!
