I’m a new father and an instant Mom’s on Call fan. Your information is invaluable and all my friends swear by your methods as well.
We are the envy of all new parents!
All is well with the babies and no one believes that they sleep 10-11 hours a night! We’re the envy of all new parents. A friend came to visit from Kansas this weekend and she returned to brag to her friends about how our babies are so well behaved. Her friend, who has an infant, asked for my secret.
Swaddle technique helps twins through physical therapy!
This week has been remarkably better. The boys are really adjusting to the schedule and have been so much happier babies. Also, I can understand their cues and cries so much easier. My level of anxiety and frustration has diminished two-fold. I wanted to let you know that I went to a physical therapy appointment for Nicholas today and she had me swaddle Nicholas to show a few stretches to me and he immediately calmed down and was able to work with.She was amazed at how quickly the swaddling and up and down soothing technique worked. I told her about you guys and she asked that I bring in the fliers next week. I didn’t think to bring them in today as the appointment was at 7:30 am!! I told her how wonderful the consultation went and how the scheduling, swaddling and soothing techniques were a lifesaver. She told me that she has many parents of multiples that come in for therapy and she would love to help spread the word! I was really excited and I am hopeful that she will spread the word to her patients. Thank you guys again!!!!!!!!!! Have a wonderful week and weekend!
Bought your book last night in sheer desperation…
Hi There, I bought your book last week in sheer desperation. I have a 4 month old daughter who was sleeping for shorter and shorter stretches until she began waking up to nurse every 45 minutes!!!!!!! I am a Montessori preschool teacher, have a 3 year old and have read TONS of parenting and baby books. I breastfeed, baby-wear, and cloth diaper my daughter. I consider myself pretty well educated on parenting issues. I am not a believer in cry it out at all, but decided I would try your 5 minute approach. I had been co-sleeping (using the arm’s reach co-sleeper) with Isla since she came home from the hospital. This was fine at first but soon neither of us were getting much sleep. I am so glad I moved her to her crib and we can both sleep better. The first night following your plan, she only woke up twice, at 2 am and at 5 am. I was shocked. She put herself back to sleep at 2 and I nursed her at 5 because I was so uncomfortable. Then she went back to sleep until 8:30! The next night, and all the following nights she has been sleeping without a peep from 8pm until about 7am. I am so happy I can function again and enjoy my baby and the rest of the family, instead of being grumpy and tired. (Not to mention sore from all night nursing) I have been telling everyone about your book and I will definitely recommend it to my friends with babies! Thank you so much!
I have to say, I’ve gone from skeptic to supporter.
I didn’t think your method would work and feared I’d end up with a miserable, neurotic child and myself depressed and guilt-ridden. We started your method Thursday night and as you had assured me, Kayla is sleeping in her crib by herself and sleeping through the night! Praise God!! I’m still waking up every couple of hours to check on her but I’m sure that will get better. She’s still catnapping during the day (45 minutes is the longest nap she’s taking) but with 12 hours at night, who am I to complain?! Thank you again for your patience and encouragement. I couldn’t have made it through the toughest moments without your support. I will happily recommend your book to all of my friends who are expecting!
But glory – it worked!
I recently spent two days babysitting for our 5-month old granddaughter while mama was out of town and daddy was at work. Papa was supposed to come help, but had a bum knee, so I was to go it alone… after 20-plus years of not caring for a little one. We live out of town, so our visits are usually very brief, and here I was on a two-day assignment. But not to fear… our son presented me with “THE SCHEDULE”. Oh, my mercy, I knew there was no way I could do what mama does!! But GLORY, it worked!! Our little one survived unharmed, and I had a ball!! So, I was passing on the information about your website to a friend for her son’s family and logged on just to check it out. Though I was convinced of your methods before, tears came to my eyes when I read that they are part of a Master plan and your goal is to honor him. Hopefully my friend’s son’s family, that is apparently in a total state of chaos, will learn more than how to swaddle, but will hopefully vicariously meet the One-Who-Was-Swaddled. Many older people these days think the “younger generation” is an upwardly mobile society motivated by money and where children are reared by nannies and day care. They do not know the likes of you, my son and daughter-in-law and their friends, and the millions of other young parents who are seeking God’s will for their families and making a real difference in this world. Blessings.
10 Month Old Triplets…
Thomas, Michael and Hannah are now 10 months old and seem to be the healthiest, happiest babies around. They are now going to bed by 7:30 PM and sleep until 7:30-8:00 AM EVERY day. They have truly learned how to have a healthy sleep…they know it is nap time or bedtime and go with little or no fussing. If they are not quite ready to sleep, they will entertain themselves and then fall asleep. Tim and I can truly enjoy every minute with them…I am rested and ready to get started for the next day. I am a stay at home mom with no nanny, etc and I am loving every precious minute. Every mom deserves to enjoy their children as much as we are.
I believe in your method so much that I have given your service as a gift to my closest friends. I am getting ready to schedule your consult for another friend.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
You are a Lifesaver!
Hi! We are doing so incredibly well. I am so happy I heard about you and your book. This has changed our lives!! He now goes down at night with no fussing AT ALL. It worked in 3 day even though he was spoiled for 8 months first! :o) We’re working on naps now, and it’s going very well. I’m sticking to the schedule and when he starts rubbing his eyes, we go to his room, read a book, I sing a little to him and put him down. He’s taking longer naps and is sleeping through the night. You are a LIFESAVER!!!! I’ll tell everyone I know about your books!
Slept all night AND napping!
Kathryn went to bed at 10 last night without making a peep and made it until exactly 7am until we heard from her again!!! Went down for the 8 am nap without a sound and is still sleeping! Her congestion is about the same this AM but she is eating fine and taking 7oz at each feeding. The only time she didn’t eat much was at the last feeding last night when she did about half of a bottle. I think she was just really ready for bed! I am amazed!!! THANK YOU!!!
Your methods are miracle workers!!!
Thank you so much for your support— you were right as always. It is scary, as a new mom, when they seem to be in so much pain and all you want to do is comfort them—but, in the end, the real true comfort she needed was a good night’s rest. So, thank you again—you have set me back on the path of restful sleeping (for all of us). PS– I really do recommend you to ALL of my friends— your methods are miracle workers!!!! Thanks Again, Niki G.
Slept everywhere we traveled, even the hotel!
Marc is doing great, we are home from Grandmas and everyone couldn’t believe what a sweet, happy baby I have! He slept though the night with no problems at Grandmas and also one night in a hotel!
New Mommy surprise!
Thank you SO MUCH for the book and blanket. I couldn’t believe it when they arrived in the mail! Our mother to be package is going to be a smash hit. I never cease to be amazed by you guys – your generosity, your expertise and your genuine commitment to moms is incredible.
It’s so concrete and doable!
“Yes, Ma’am and DO it.” Don’t ever get discouraged. If you can make a know-it-all pediatrician feel empowered, just think what you’re doing for people who have no child development experience.
No longer comes out of his room at night!
As you know, we implemented the 3 family rules. We then backed them up when Jacob would come out of his room after being tucked in. We did have 2 rough nights when he tried to knock down the door, but it has been great since then. He no longer comes out of his room at all and sleeps all night! I am totally convinced that the enjoyment (and # of hours of sleep we’re getting) of being a parent is in large part due to your advice – knowledge is power!!!
Ignored the drama and it worked!
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your advice regarding Jacks withholding of his BM’s, you told me to just ignore all the drama, and IT WORKED!!!!!!! I don’t even know when he goes anymore, its truly amazing. No more drama, no more suppositories. We just wanted to thank you for yet again amazing and right on the money advice.
Having less tantrums!
Thank you thank you thank you! You are so encouraging and I so needed that! We are doing much better! After a much needed vacation we have turned over a new leaf. Emma Kate is having less tantrums, the girls are sleeping in their room together (with little conflict) and her sister (4mths) is sleeping at night without swaddle, I can’t say thank you enough! God is good. Some days are so hard, but it sure is great to know He’s here with me. And He really shows himself through people like you thank you again!
Have a great day!
Paci is gone without a fuss!
You were extremely helpful with my 2 year old…
Life changing experience
Jennifer, Joe and I have really had a life changing experience with our kids! Riley Jane is sleeping through the night and not crying! They are much better over all and both teachers at school even made a comment!
We are big believers
Our household is a HUGE fan of MOC — we are big believers.
I got my sanity back
Soon after starting your schedule my son started sleeping through the night and had predictable naps. This meant I got my sanity back.
…made such a difference!
We have been using the moms on call app and I have read the book and watched the online videos and have learned so much and it has made such a difference!
…your books are miracles!
First let me say your books are miracles! I had my daughter sleeping through the night at 2 months! I love ya’ll and recommend you to all my friends!
I’ve used your videos and books with both of my kids and have had great success!
I have a 9 week old daughter and your book has been a life saver! She’s been sleeping through the night since 5.5 weeks!
You have a great following…
I should mention that a few friends have also read your books – and we have all downloaded your app. You have a great following in Atlanta and I’m sure countrywide.
Hello. I have been following your book now for the last month and have had great success with my almost 5 month old girl. Thank you.
I’m a believer!!! Everyone in our twins group said it would work, but I still had my doubts. Isaac and Talluluh both slept until 2:30am and 3am the FIRST two nights on the new schedule! My parents both witnessed the change in them and are also amazed. Grandma and grandpa left this morning, and, rather than feeling completely unprepared/scared, I feel like we can actually do this on our own. Thank you for giving us the tools and confidence to be good parents. We’ve already starting reading to them at night, and I swear they are listening! It’s the best feeling. Amazing. Merci beaucoup!
As a customer of Moms On Call, I can tell you what they teach literally saves marriages and helps make loving, happy families. My husband and I had our first child, Sophia in August 2004. We were the typical clueless new parents. After 3-4 weeks of extreme exhaustion, frustration and despair we called Moms on Call to come to our home and provide a private consultation. In a 2-3 hour period she taught us more about how to listen to and soothe our baby than any book or other seminar had even come close to providing. From that point on, using the tools Laura provided us with, we were able to provide Sophia with a loving, in tune environment that let her get the comfort she needed, while allowing us to truly start enjoying her and our new family. ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!!!
Swaddle Technique works like a charm – every night!
I wanted to tell you how very helpful your book(s),Moms on Call, has been to me. Out of all the books I have read on child care/development, yours has been my favorite. I first learned of your book while listening to you on the Christian radio program, Family Life Today, back in the spring of 2008. God had a wonderful way of preparing me for motherhood. I bought your book in the hopes of being able to use it in the near future. My husband and I were in the process of adopting, and I wanted to be ready when our very first baby arrived. We were quite shocked when we learned there was a baby waiting for us at the hospital just a few months after that program aired. We had only waited 1 week! We were told the wait could be 1-2 years. God knew I would need this book in my hands at that perfect time. I remember watching the swaddling video for the first time and trying the technique on Ava’s stuffed animal. Next, I tried it on her. As I’m listening to you say, “it works, it really works!”, I had Ava swaddled up and she immediately stopped crying. I cried out, “yes, it does work”! I was so excited! We have been following your schedules and most importantly, your bedtime routine. Ava was very colicky the first 4 months, however the one constant I could ALWAYS count on was a peaceful nights sleep for all of us! Your sleep schedule worked like a charm…every single night. She has been sleeping steadily through out the night since she was about 8 weeks old. I think she has been sleeping 11-12 hours since she was just a few months old; it has been so long, I can’t remember. She is now 14 months. She has always slept straight through the night too. Friends and family are amazed when we go to their homes, or they are at ours, and we do bath, bottle and bedtime and she goes right down at 7:30 w/o a peep. It doesn’t matter if we are traveling and she is in a foreign environment, or if she is at Grandma’s or here at home, she is so good about going right down. I come out of the room and people say to me, “that’s it? is she sleeping already? she doesn’t cry”? I have learned just how important sleep is for a baby. I am just so thankful that my baby girl sleeps so peacefully at night (and naps!). We get comments all the time about what a happy baby she is. I think part of it is that her daddy and I pray over her every night and ask God to give her a happy heart and also b/c she is so well rested. Thank you for your help! It has done wonders in our household. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge w/mothers like me.
He is the happiest little guy!
He’s 5 months now and he’s rolling all over the place, LOVING his baby food, he cut two teeth last week (completely without incident), and he’s STILL SLEEPING LIKE A CHAMP, of course! He goes down about 8:00 each night and sleeps until at least 8:00 every morning – and sometimes pushes 9:00. My favorite part is that when he wakes up in the morning he doesn’t make a peep. We’ll go in to check on him at about 8:00 and he is wide awake, smiling like crazy, rolling all over the place, having a great time – it’s so cute. AND, he naps like crazy during the day too! We couldn’t be happier!
I cannot express my gratitude.
You both are such a blessing to sleep deprived babies and parents everywhere. I think every woman that is having a baby needs to know about Moms On Call, it has transformed everything and finally I’m enjoying my little girl!!Thank You, Thank You!
Y’all are all the craze in “soon to be” mommy world.
It took one night!!!!!!
The second and third night he fussed maybe for 5 min. and did not wake until 7:30. He was sleeping for 11 hours!!!! It now has been 5 nights and all is soooooooo good. Where do I begin? I am sure you have heard it before but I will say it again. You and your book have been a life saver!
Off prescription GI Reflux Meds.
I wanted to let you know that since we’ve been working the schedule we have NOT had to give Noah any prescription medication. He occasionally (maybe twice a day) gets OTC gas drops, but that’s it!
Chance meeting at Baby Expo changed our lives, 11 month old sleeps all night.
First of all I just want to thank you so much. I had met you at the Baby Expo in Atlanta recently. You had given my husband and I advice about putting our 11 month old to sleep. Everything you said would happen did and within 2 weeks she was sleeping soundly throughout the night. It has now been almost six months of our little girl sleeping through the night and we have you to thank. I am now pregnant again and have to much to ask you. You are our lifesaver and we owe you so much.
Sam is a dream. Sleeping 7 to 7. He started crawling at 6 1/2 months and is such a smart, sweet little muffin. Thank you for helping me ease into this amazing thing called motherhood. God is certainly using you in a such a special way.
Blessings and Grace
Best napper at daycare thanks to Moms on Call
Hudson recently started daycare, and the teacher said that in 13 years she has never seen a baby nap so well. I attribute it to his great schedule thanks to moms on call!!! Thank you – we have such a well rested, well fed and happy baby boy.
He seems to be a happier baby now with all of his sleep and his bigger meals. Your help has been invaluable.
He’s a totally different child!
Hi Jennifer! Landon is 14 months old now and I can’t believe it. He’s a totally different child since this past May when you came into our lives!!
Potty trained on his second birthday thanks to Moms on Call!
Y’all are truly amazing!I also wanted to let you know that you were right on with the potty training also. Hamilton was potty trained (and happy the entire time!) right at his 2nd birthday. It’s been a dream. And you were right – go straight for the underwear, avoid pull ups! I was a total nay-sayer on that and thought pull ups are there for a reason but I was wrong! :).
I hope this finds you well!
Owe my sanity to Moms on Call!
All I can say is WOW – you are the reason that I won’t have to take anti-depressants! How’s that for a testimonial?
Blew me kisses before bed!
We will see what happens tonight, but we got home last night and she was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to get home to her own bed! At bed time, I brought her up sat in her chair to read her a book and she got off my lap and crawled into her bed I gave her the book (it’s cloth) and she curled up with it and her stuffed monkey… I gave her a kiss and told her I loved her and was so proud of her and that I’d see her in the morning.. I turned around as I was leaving the room and blew her a kiss – she smiled and blew one back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Felt like I had a girlfriend next to me giving me sound and wonderful advice!
You were extremely helpful with my 2 year old. She is now back to napping 2.5/3 hours in the afternoon. I followed your advice and she has mastered the naps again. The toddler seminar online is amazing. I have used all the techniques and they work great. We took the paci away from my 2 year old and it only took one day to adjust!
Your book is amazing
Your book is amazing and I am so glad we have it. It has proven to be the most useful baby gift we received!
Thanks for your help!
Thank you so much. I love the book and the schedule. Thanks for your help!
Your book has been my Bible
Thanks for all your help your book has been my Bible, I am about to order the next one!
My friends have raved about your programs!
I loved it
I recently registered for the online class for babies 0-3 months. I loved it
Fabulous and succinct
Your book was given to me by a good friend, and your fabulous and succinct advice made my baby’s first 6 months so much easier.
I find myself turning to it several times a day…
My friend gave me your Moms on Call 0-6 mos. book as a baby shower gift and I find myself turning to it several times a day for tips and answers.
I love your book.
I love your book. I found it when pregnant with my second child and immediately ordered it and the swaddle blankets.
We love Moms on Call.
We love Moms on Call. My husband and I run a non-profit ministry in Atlanta. We have 3 teenage girls from our neighborhood that are pregnant and I bought the books for them. Your book helped me so much and I know it will really help these young moms as well.
