Sleep Help Testimonials
The “4 month sleep regression” hit our family hard, and at 5 months, our son had no regular night or nap schedule. It was clear he was overtired, and he had to be rocked or nursed (sometimes for hours) until fast asleep or he would begin screaming as soon as he hit the mattress. Within 2 days of working with Sasha, we were putting him down awake for 3 naps a day and bedtime, and he was soothing himself to sleep! Within 1 week, he was sleeping 12-13 hours at night (with a feeding or two). Sasha has helped us to understand babies’ sleep needs and patterns and to shape reasonable expectations. We cannot recommend her highly enough–she is warm, knowledgeable, professional, and was always available to answer the many questions that arose throughout the process. In our exhausted state, I don’t think there is any way we could have accomplished the sleep training without her guidance. If we could do it over again, the only thing we would change is to call her sooner!Katie and Sean McCabe
We came to this experience as frazzled and overwhelmed parents, unsure of whether this would even work. We had tried many, many times to sleep train our son in the past with little lasting success. This put an enormous amount of stress on us and in our marriage. So we decided that we would go ahead and hire Dr. Carr, and we are so thankful that we did! She helped us with more than just implementing a sleep plan – she discussed our concerns that sleep training was going to cause emotional damage to Henry. In fact, quite the opposite! He is now not only sleeping through the night and staying in his crib until 6 am, if he is awake in his crib, he is now okay with just hanging out without screaming to be picked up. He seems to have confidence now that he is where he is supposed to be and that his job is to just sleep. He can trust that we will let him know when it is appropriate to get out of bed. We can’t recommend Dr. Carr enough! She gave all three of us a real gift.Molly, Jeff and Henry Kert
Dr. Carr was fantastic. After the first 3 nights I was already recommending her to friends and family. She was very clear and precise with her directions. I truly never thought that people could put an infant in a crib and go back 12 hours later but it is possible and it has honestly saved my life. I will be forever grateful for her advice. The reason that this worked for us is because it wasn’t someone just telling us to let our son cry it out.C. Loughry
My husband and I came to Dr. Carr frazzled and exhausted. Our daughter, Kate (13 1/2 months), was sleeping in bed with me while my husband slept in another room. We were frustrated and confused by all the conflicting information and opinions on sleep. A friend recommended we contact Sasha and I’m so glad we did! Not only did Dr. Carr take the time to understand our family’s needs, she personalized a sleep plan for us based on our comfort level and sleep goals we set for our daughter. She listened to our concerns and fears and offered advice and reassurance every step of the way. Knowing that Sasha was there to support us during the training was comforting and encouraging. She was always there to answer our questions and as a first time parent, I have to admit there were many! Sasha gave us the confidence we needed to succeed and we are happy to report that our daughter is now sleeping in her own bed, in her own room during naps and at bedtime! One of the best gifts that we have given our daughter is the gift of sleep and the ability to do so on her own! I am a happier mother and wife, our family bond is stronger and our marriage is healthier. Thank you Dr. Carr!Jenny and Jeff Andrews
We turned to Sasha when our son started waking multiple times over night after he started crawling at 7 months. We had done some sleep training on our own after his 4 month sleep regression, but this time he was crying much harder and for longer. It was wearing on us and we had started to create some bad habits in order to get some sleep. Our experience with Sasha couldn’t have been better. She was responsive, listened closely to us, and made recommendations based on what we were comfortable with. We have already recommended Sasha to friends and will continue to do so.Amy and Brett H.
After our son was born, we weren’t necessarily having any major sleep issues – we were just overwhelmed with the plethora of sleep information on the internet! We needed someone to help us sort through all of the clutter and determine what made sense for us. Dr. Carr helped us do that! She’s responsive and very knowledgeable. People are surprised to hear when I say sleep training is the “best thing ever”. Her plan has given us a structure, eased our minds – and our son has never slept more.Lindsey K.
I was stressed and confused about [our son’s] sleep schedule. He seemed constantly tired and irritable but fought sleep. As a new mom I didn’t know how to help him get the sleep I knew he (and I) desperately needed. Dr. Carr worked with my husband and I to get our baby to the point where he is napping 1.5-2 hours two times a day and only waking for one feeding in the night. We all feel so much better! Caleb is meeting milestones, growing like crazy, and is so much happier in general. Dr. Carr also worked with us to get to this point using a method with which we were comfortable and when something wasn’t working she was responsive and helped us revise our plan.Christin
Our 19 month old had never been a good sleeper (to put it mildly), and we were all ready for a change. Our pediatrician recommended Dr. Carr, and we couldn’t be happier with the results! She gave us the tools and confidence to implement the changes we all so desperately needed, and being able to follow up with questions and concerns along the way was immensely helpful and gave us peace of mind. We were amazed at how quickly Ella began making progress, and by the end of the two weeks, she was going to sleep on her own without a peep and sleeping 11-12 hours (in her crib) without any intervention. She’s happier during the day, too. This is such a game changer for us all! We highly recommend Dr. Carr to anyone ready to make a change for the better.Tracy, Dan & Ella Carlucci
When my doctor suggested that I consider a sleep consultant, I did not know there was such a person. I researched the certification process and spoke or emailed with a handful of sleep consultants that I found online. We chose Dr. Carr because we liked her in-depth background as a clinical psychologist. We found her to be very professional and her passion for the importance of sleep was obvious.
Dr. Carr helped us get our baby to sleep through the night in a way that I was completely comfortable with in a very efficient timeframe. I would have never achieved this simply following advice in the sleep books I read. It makes a significant difference when you have a personal coach. It was like having a customized road map for each night based on our particular baby. I appreciated the feedback Dr. Carr provided to us nearly every day of our two weeks. She was very encouraging and, in the end, the process was not such a big deal as I expected it to be. She was available to answer all of my questions along the way – and I tend to ask a lot of questions. I learned so much from Dr. Carr. She is extremely knowledgeable and presents information and suggestions in a way that is very user-friendly.
Hiring Dr. Carr was worth every dollar spent.
My husband and I were desperate for our daughter to sleep in her own bed all night without crying. After 2.5 years we had basically given up and let her sleep in our bed every night. She kicked and wiggled all night and none of us were getting a good night of sleep. Enter Dr. Carr. She gave us a complete and easy to follow plan and just two weeks later our daughter is sleeping all night in her own bed and waking up rested. It’s a miracle.Sarah and Tim
At 9 months, our son stopped sleeping through the night, and I also relied on nursing him to sleep for his short, sporadic naps. Two months later we were completely exhausted and ready for sleep training. Sasha compassionately guided us with a concise plan, and our son was sleeping through the night and taking longer naps within the first 24 hours, and endless nursing sessions are behind us. Her communicativeness and warmth are outstanding. Dr. Carr is a dream!Kristen S.
One of the things that I liked best about Dr. Carr is her background as a psychologist. I’m willing to admit that I’m one of those anxious moms. I asked a million questions (sometimes the same ones) and I needed a lot of reassurance throughout the process. Dr. Carr took all of my questions seriously, talked me through everything and treated me with respect even when I got carried away once or twice. I used to think our pediatrician was the most patient person I knew but after working with Dr. Carr I’m not sure, she may have him beat!Stephanie T.
Dr. Carr was a lifesaver! After numerous desperate attempts to get our son to sleep later than 4 am, Dr. Carr swooped in and within one week the problem was more or less solved! Simply knowing that we had a plan of attack was the most reassuring feeling after months of sleepless nights. All in all, incredible happy with our experience and would certainly recommend Dr. Carr to other desperate, sleep deprived Mommy’s and Daddy’s!Emi B.
On a dime our 3 1/2 year old turned from a champion sleeper to a complete nightmare at bedtime, screaming, crying, refusing to sleep, you name it. We were at our wits’ end until we found Dr. Carr. Her calm and measured approach worked wonders and after a week or two our son was back to his normal self at bedtime. Highly recommended.Meg, Tom and Tommy
We can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for our family. When our son cried at the top of his lungs the first 2 nights home and had his days and nights confused for days after, it was unexpected to say the least. As the months went by and we struggled with naps, overnight wakings, and exhaustion. Your advice, guidance and support gave us the tools we needed to work through our situation. As two working parents, it was invaluable. I will always recommend you to any parent struggling with sleeping. Sleep issues were such an unexpected (and daunting) surprise for us when we started our family. We are so grateful we found you as a resource. I would have never imagined our toddler sleeping 12 hours through the night and taking at least an hour nap each day! Brilliant! Thank you again!Nicole Steel
Working with Dr. Carr gave us the gift we all needed most of all – sleep! She really understood how to help us reorganize our bedtime routines, times, and expectations in order for all of us to get the sleep we needed. Dr. Carr asked questions about our sleep habits that had never even occurred to us as being important. She shed light on areas that had been long ignored and helped us make sleep in our family a priority. We are now a healthier and happier family thanks to Dr. Carr!Natanya, Michael and the kids
Dr. Carr has been instrumental in helping our family to improve our sleep. We have struggled with our two year old’s lack of sleep since she was born, and tried all the suggestions given by family, friends, and popular books. We made some gains here and there, but ultimately our daughter’s sleep was never consistent. Dr. Carr’s plan was comprehensive and tailored to our needs as a family in a way that all of our previous strategies were not. And unlike any book, her ongoing support over phone and email kept us on track and our spirits up. In the past two weeks our daughter’s sleep has improved dramatically and we now feel like we have the tools and confidence to maintain the progress that we’ve made. We wish that we had contacted her sooner!Kira and Arjune R.
Our experience was great! Our daughter has silent reflux & spent 10 months being held or rocked to sleep. She had zero self soothing skills. And although she was only waking 1 or 2 times a night, we always had to help her fall back to sleep, which could take 5 to 60 minutes. The first night implementing Dr. Carr’s plan and she slept through the night. We were not expecting that at all! Each day brings little improvements with napping etc but we are just so thrilled she can now put herself to sleep at night without crying and sleep through the night. we had read many tips or plans online but having someone put one together specifically for our family & guide us through it was just awesome!Deirdre and George Hennessey
Dr. Sasha Carr was truly a life changer. She helped my husband and I get our twins on a schedule and helped us have the confidence we needed during the training process. Both of our twins used to need to be rocked to sleep and I can honestly say that we can just go in and relax them and put them down to sleep for a nap and at bedtime. This has made a huge difference in our lives. We can’t thank her enough.Alan, Daniela, Benicio, & Chiada Hernandez
Dr. Carr was very down to earth and professional. She helped us to form an approach that we felt comfortable with and did not involve leaving our son in his crib to cry endlessly. She helped us to simultaneously wean our son, get him out of our bed and into his own crib and sleep through the night. And the process only took a couple of days. Our son also now naps in his crib for his nanny instead of having to be walked for his naps. We are very grateful for her help and guidance.Lauren
