"My 5.5 month old was waking multiple times in the night and during naps because she lost her paci. After working with Keriann, my daughter no longer uses a paci for sleep and can self soothe which has given her the skills to sleep 11 hours at night and take 3 naps a day. I’ve worked with other sleep consultants before and what distinguishes Keriann is the support she gives you throughout the ENTIRE process. She gives you a customized plan and she continues to monitor and check in with you so she can adjust and make changes as needed. It made implementing the plan so much easier and effective because when I was unsure how to handle something that didn’t go as planned, she was there to provide guidance. I can’t thank Keriann enough for her assistance and I would highly recommend her to anyone that has a child struggling with sleep. She will help you all get the sleep you need!"
~ Jill, Mom to 5 Month Old
"We were on the fence about spending the money to hire a sleep consultant, and let me just say, it has been the best money we’ve ever spent. Our daughter was waking every hour overnight and catnapping during the day. Now she takes two great naps and sleeps through the night. Keriann was so supportive, compassionate, and knowledgeable. Not only did she hold our hands through the whole journey, she also left us with the tools and confidence to handle future hiccups and situations. We are beyond thankful for her help."
~ Matt & Colleen, Parents to 8 Month Old

"We struggled so much before hiring Keriann. Our sleeping routine is so much better already. This was one of the wisest investments we’ve made in our parenthood journey. And it definitely made a difference with Keriann being there to gently guide us and share her wealth of knowledge about sleep training our little Daniel. We highly recommend Dream Factory Sleep Solutions!"
~ Stephanie, Mom to 7 Month Old
"Hiring a sleep consultant is one of the best investments I've made in my children's health and for my sanity. We first hired Keriann when my oldest was almost 3. (We used to have to lay on her floor for 1-2 hours each night for her to fall asleep; now we do a bedtime routine and she falls asleep on her own.) When my youngest hit the 4 month sleep regression, she began waking up 6-8 times a night - it was brutal. After a few weeks I yelled uncle and engaged Keriann to help. To be candid, the first 3 or so days of implementing the sleep plan is rough. But we stuck with it and worked the plan which Keriann helped us tweak along the way. Within about 3-4 days we were down to 2 night wakings. By day 10 we were down to waking once per night. My 4 month old was also not napping at all - I mean 15-20 minutes here and there if we held her. Naps took longer, but within about 3-4 weeks, the baby was napping in her crib, falling asleep within a few minutes with minimal to no crying. Keriann is truly a blessing, we got our sanity back, and both the baby and us are getting much better sleep."
~Melissa, Mom to 5 Month Old
Flower Mound, TX
"We had amazing results with our 4 1/2 month old boy! He was not able to fall asleep on his own, would have to be rocked to sleep and woke frequently, also was not napping unless in the car, within one week we broke him of all these habits and he is sleeping through the night and napping three times a day! The process was very gentile and Keriann made us feel comfortable with all the changes, we wish we started sooner!"
~ Chelsey, Mom to 4.5 Month Old
"We had a great time working with Keriann! It was the first time our 8 month old had fallen asleep by herself in her crib for a nap! I have so much more free time now. I recommend working with Dream Factory Sleep Solutions. She provides great detail on what needs to be done to help your baby sleep. She provides a comprehensive, personalized sleep plan and is always available for questions and support!"
~ Krista, Mom to 8 Month Old
"Keriann provided me with the perfect balance of training, support, and accountability I needed to succeed in sleep training my 6 month old son, who woke up often at night and would only be nursed back to sleep. After sleep training with Dream Factory he sleeps 12 hours/ night with zero night feedings."
~ Whitney, Mom to 6 Month Old
"Working with Keriann, we were able to change the sleep habits of our preschool-age son (almost 3 years old). He was able to learn how to go to sleep independently and to stay in his own bed until morning. It was great working with Keriann and we are very pleased with the results."
~ Jason & Lindsay, Parents to 3 Year Old
"We just completed the big-kid sleep consultation for our son (8 years old) and could
not be happier with the progress he made! He has struggled for years with falling asleep and staying asleep/in his bed. We have tried numerous strategies to make bedtime easier and to help him stay in bed and nothing has worked until now! Keriann was extremely gracious and thorough, was very mindful of our son’s anxieties, various life events happening during our time with her that threw us off a little (my son’s broken nose and a new puppy!), and had great tips along the way to help us fine-tune his program. All of Keriann’s strategies made sense and putting it in an easy-to follow program with daily check-ins was exactly what all of us needed to form new, good habits. We are excited to continue on our own and wish we had found Keriann sooner. Thank you!"
~ Kate, Mom to 8 Year Old
"After months of struggling with proper night time sleep, we asked Keriann for help. Our 10 mo old guy was waking up daily at least twice per night, once at 2 am and 5:30 am. We had tried, multiple attempts of CIO, rocking, feeding, playing (yes even at 5 am) to tire him out and get him back to sleep, but nothing was giving us consistent results. We asked Keriann for help and now looking back, I wonder why we didn't ask her sooner. Within two weeks, we fixed night time sleep and naps. It was such a huge relief and it was finally so nice to have a well rested happy baby. I am so glad Dream Factory Sleep Solutions was able to help us. Thank you so much!!!!"
~ Nida, Mom to 10 Month Old
"It was such a pleasure working with Keriann. She helped us get our (then) 5 month old sleep trained through the night and on track for naps. She listened to what was important and helped implement good sleep in the home. We now have an (almost) 8 month old that sleeps through the night and takes 2 great naps a day. He loves his crib! My husband and I are thankful to have our sleep back too!
~ Nicole, Mom to 5 Month Old
Farmers Branch, TX
"After 19 months we finally decided to ask for help. The biggest challenge with my toddler was getting him to sleep in his crib. My husband and I tried a few methods but they did not work and the older my son got the more he would cry when we tried anything. He eventually ended up sleeping in my bed. Thank God one day my pediatrician recommended Keriann. Although I was not completely convinced anything would work I knew we had to give Keriann a chance. I'm so happy we did! Keriann is wonderful. She met with us once gave us a personalized plan and by day 1 my 19 month old was sleeping in his crib. By day 3 he slept through the entire night. Now he has been sleeping in his crib for naps and throughout the night! This was the best investment we have made! Keriann is very professional and her methods work! I would recommend her to all my friends and family."
~ Elvia, Mom to 19 Month Old
"We have a 3.5 year old who recently started to sleep on her own, through the night after years of co-sleeping and many nights without good quality of sleep for the family. For our second child Madi who just turned 13 months old, we decided to call Keriann as we couldn't imagine another month of poor sleep - it was taking such a toll on everyone... While I have a hard time with some intense methods of cry it out - and when we've tried these methods in the past, both of our children often cried until they'd make themselves sick as they'd get so worked up. I really couldn't imagine a program working for us... I also wasn't expecting the program to really work for Madi - I had hope that she would sleep better, and in her own crib, but I just couldn't imagine a bedtime routine only taking 30 minutes, as well as her sleeping through the night! I truly really believed that we didn't have great sleepers, and that was just the way it was going to be! Well -- Keriann's program worked! Madi sleeps the full night by herself and she puts herself to sleep at night - and the bedtime routine takes only 30 minutes! Our new life of a well rested family was so unbelievable to me, I cried, because I was so happy. It is literally life changing. We have a happier, well-rested 14 month old, and my husband and I have our night's back. :)
THANK YOU KERIANN!"
~ Lowell & Jaclyn, Parents to 13 Month Old
“Since working with Keriann, our 2 year old daughter is sleeping well (up to 11 hours a night!), stays in her crib, and actually asks to go up to start her bedtime routine. Keriann’s methods and resources were very effective and she kept us on track through the whole process. It was not easy going through it, but certainly has made a positive difference.”
~ Brian & Lisa, Parents to 2 Year Old
"So I must give a HUGE shout out to Keriann with Dream Factory Sleep Solutions. She has made my world so much easier and I’m getting more sleep. Emma and Ella have been on her sleep training plan for 3 weeks now and for the first time since the NICU they are sleeping, eating and pooping at the same time! No more pacifiers, midnight feedings and little cat naps through the day. And the biggest change is they BOTH are in their own cribs in their room! It’s been 3 weeks with no midnight feedings or sleeping in my room and it’s been amazing! I’m still not sleeping as well as I should but I’m getting there. Keriann was amazing in getting me both physically and mentally prepared for this transition. Her method is NOT lay them in bed and walk away for the night. I couldn’t do a hard core cry it out method. This was gentle and by the 3rd night they had it down. Now they go straight to sleep in their beds, well sometimes they play and talk for a few minutes but they are sleeping through the night - 7pm until 6am!!! If you have a child of any age with sleep issues please reach out to Keriann. It will be the best money you ever spend. She does offer a free consultation to new clients. You can’t put a price on a solid nights sleep!"
~ Rebbecca, Mom to 9 Month Old Twins
"We had amazing success with Keriann and her sleep training program with our 7 month old daughter! Prior to beginning, our daughter would wake up several times in the night and cry and would not go back to sleep. On a good night, we were getting 6 hours of sleep and we felt like zombies. Some nights we were only getting 4 to 5 hours. This is not an exaggeration, within days of the program our daughter began sleeping through the entire night! We finished the program about a week ago and our daughter sleeps 11 to 11.5 hours every single night!"
~ Elija, Mom to 7 Month Old
“We were caught in a cycle of walking and rocking our 9 month old son to sleep each
time we put him down and often times spent more time getting him asleep than he actually slept, especially for naps. We decided it was time to do something about it and started looking for help. After some research on top rated providers, we gave Keriann a call. After going through her program, not only do we put our son down awake in his crib, he is consistently getting 2.5 – 4 hours of naps each day and all the sleep he needs. The difference is drastic! He’s in a much better mood, babbling to us all the time and moving right along hitting his milestones! I can’t say enough about Keriann, she’s great to work with and will make sure that you have all the tools you need to be successful!”
~ Jonathan, Dad to 9 Month Old
"I don’t even know where to begin, but let’s just say our son was colicky for a good chunk of 1 - 4 months old. That meant that we were constantly rocking him, holding him, patting him and keeping him in our arms until he fell asleep and stopped crying so that we could sleep. And this was EVERY 2 HOURS. Of course, as time went on I started to just hold my son in my arms to sleep, because truthfully that was the easiest way for me to get sleep. And so did my son, until about 7-8 months old he would wake up every 3 hrs and want to nurse. But it wasn’t full nursing, it was just comforting him to fall back to sleep. Ugh, I was always sitting next to him, for every nap, every 2 hours, and when he slept at night, I would have to go to bed too. It was a nightmare, I couldn’t get anything done. Talk about a stay at home mom that could NEVER cook or clean. It was really frustrating. Then I found Keriann, and we kept delaying the process because “oh, we have this,” or, “we are moving across the country”. Thank God, she literally worked with us around our crazy schedule.
We are super happy to say that after 2 weeks and a little more of sleep training, despite my husband backtracking the sleep training (drove me insane), Keriann somehow made this baby sleep on his own. And he’s doing great. Very minimal crying, but our son was so attached it wasn’t going to be no crying. The first 2 days were the roughest, and the 6th day was really rough because my hubby reverted back to old habits (haha). But in the end the tips and tricks Keriann showed us really helped keep our son on track and he’s doing great now! Sleeps through the night, and even 2 hrs every nap or longer if we let him. We figured out the difference between cries of I really need you mom, verses, I really just can’t find my favorite position to sleep in. Which was hard to figure out for a while, but we did slowly get there! Thank you Keriann, I’m so very grateful for all you did, because I wouldn’t have lasted with this next baby coming!"
~ Zachary & Spring, Parents to 11 Month Old
"My 4 year old son hit a major sleep regression a couple of months ago where he was only getting 2-3 hours of sleep a night, racing in to my room up to 10 times a night and generally not sleeping! This meant NO ONE in my house was getting any sleep! Keriann laid out such a thorough and detailed plan for us and guided us each step of the way. After 3 weeks of Keriann’s help, my son is sleeping through the night all night long again. We couldn’t have done this without her insight and patience. She has been so responsive to every question we have had and can’t thank her enough for giving all of us the gift of sleep again!!"
~ Molly, Mom to 4 Year Old
"Keriann has truly been a blessing to our family! This was our second time working with her, and just like the first time, we saw awesome results with our little one. Keriann created a plan that worked for us. She was so patient, understanding, and knowledgable when it came to getting our Little Man to sleep. We went from nursing our baby to sleep, napping only while being held, and waking up several times a night to establishing a good EAT-PLAY-SLEEP routine, taking two solid naps a day, and sleeping through the night!! I can honestly say I feel like a new woman and I know our little guy is enjoying life as a well-rested baby. We are so thankful for Keriann and absolutely recommend her to any parents struggling with getting their little one to sleep well."
~ Jacqueline, Mom to 6 Month Old
"Keriann made a compassionate sleep solution that worked perfectly for our family. She supported us for weeks after the plan was implemented.Every time I derailed from the plan, she nudged me back in the right direction. She also offered support when we moved back to London. My only regret is that I didn’t contact Keriann sooner. Thank you for helping our family learn to sleep!"
~ Farheen, Mom to 2 Year Old
"Our one year old daughter relied on me to nurse her to sleep for naps and throughout bedtime. Frustrated with short naps, broken up sleep, a tired baby, and missing out on quality time with my husband and two older children, especially in the evening, I decided we needed some help from a professional. Keriann listened to our concerns, desires and frustrations and designed a sleep plan tailored to our specific situation. To my surprise, using a gentle approach to train my daughter how to self soothe, put herself to sleep and transition her into her crib, I am in awe as to how smooth and quick this process was. Things here at home are so much more peaceful, my daughter is rested and it is so nice to have my husband back in bed with me! I wish I would have done it sooner!"
~ Yvonne, Mom to 1 Year Old
"We truly value the sleep solutions Keriann provided to our family. Our 6 month old daughter began sleeping through the night by night three. And naps are no longer such a struggle. Our experience was exceptional and we would highly recommend Dream Factory Sleep Solutions to any family needing a little or a lot of help!"
~ Tara, Mom to 6 Month Old
"My husband and I relocated from California to Texas due to a promotion he received with his employer. Our baby girl was 3 months at the time and was doing pretty well with sleeping in her crib. Then the disaster hit. When we arrived to Dallas we stayed in 3 different temporary housing options until we finally bought our home. Since there were so many transitions and little consistency, we lost the momentum we had with sleep training. 5 months later, Addie, as well as her parents and dogs, were in a terrible place. It got to the point where she didn't even want any consoling... No nursing, no holding, no rocking, nothing! It was an anxiety battle every night - waking up 6-7 times and no one getting any sleep. Working with Keriann helped us 200%. She coached us on how to guide Addie to learn to sleep as well as teach us on what she needed and not to immediately react. Her nurturing support and guidance was like she was a member of our family. My husband and I were educated on general sleep behaviors as well as how babies operate that we will be forever grateful. My husband said to me a month after we started with Keriann, 'This was the best investment we've ever made.'"
~Jill, Tim, and Adelaide (11 Months Old)
"After two-and-a-half years, we wondered if our little boy would ever sleep through the night. We’d tried sleep training on our own and with a consulting service but still struggled to see lasting change.
The sleep plan we received from Keriann was very structured and systematic, which was great for our strong-willed toddler. Over the course of three weeks, our son learned to go to sleep by himself and put himself back to sleep in the night. Naps and nighttimes are so much more pleasant now, and we’re so thankful that everyone is getting the rest they need!"
~Amanda & Mike, Parents to 2.5 year old
"Before I discovered Dream Factory Sleep Solutions, I was nursing my 8 month old through the night. I was a human pacifier and a sleep crutch to all night wakings. I thought bed sharing was the only way to get any sleep. Don't get me wrong, I loved all the snuggles, but I was completely sleep deprived. I felt like I had no time to read books to find the most appropriate sleep method. Every baby is different and Keriann's evaluation really takes into consideration the baby's temperament and habits as well as the parent's sleep training comfort levels. Committing to the plan and following through has been life changing for my family. Good sleep rolls over into so many other aspects of life whether it's intimate time with your partner, freeing up time with your other child, cleaning, and self-care. I'm beyond grateful for what Keriann has taught us. I'm so thankful for the sleep we are all now getting."
~Tisha, Mom to 9 Month Old
San Marcos, CA
"When we had our second child, we never dreamed that she wouldn't sleep just like her older brother did. Boy, were we wrong! We went a solid 6 months of multiple night wakings and never sleeping through the night. When one of our friends suggested we give Keriann a call, we had nothing to lose. After just one week under Keriann's specialized plan, we were seeing a major difference with Rosalie. No more night wakings, no more pacifiers and a better eating schedule. Now, almost a month later and one vacation down, Rosalie is still napping and sleeping so great! It takes a lot of effort and prioritizing to get the plan down, but it will change your whole world once your child develops great sleeping habits!"
~Katelyn, Mom to 7 Month Old
Pilot Point, TX
"Keriann has literally changed our lives more than we can ever imagine, and seeking her support was the best decision we’ve made as parents. Our son was diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) shortly after his birth which caused issues in with napping and sleeping through the night, but the sleeping issues persisted even as we were able to manage the GERD. After 11 months of him waking anywhere from every 20 minutes to 2 hours for comfort we were exasperated (and tired!). I received a highly positive reference to Keriann and Dream Factory Sleep Solutions, and she provided a tailored/comprehensive plan and coaching to ultimately lead us all to regular sleep! We never thought our Leo would sleep through the night, let alone take naps, and he now sleeps the full night and takes regular naps. The training was simple, safe, and comfortable. It really works, and the results are amazing! We are so thankful for Keriann and the results she delivered."
~Joe & Dani, Parents to 11 Month Old
South Elgin, IL
“We’ve used Keriann with two kids now. The second time was just as helpful as the first. We thought as parents to now three children that we’ve got it all down and can figure out this sleep stuff. Although we had most of the tools from our previous time with Keriann, we lacked a few minor things that made a big difference, as well as the accountability you just can’t get from reading a book or prior notes. Every child is different and every child responds to things differently, as we’ve learned through this process. She gave us consistency in our life which in turn helped us have consistency in other parts of our life because now all three of our children sleep well. Just as my working with her last time, my only regret with this process was waiting as long as we did. My now 8 month old sleeps from 7pm-7am! If we have another child, she will be called immediately”
~Nik, Mom to 8 month old
"Our 5 month old son went from sleeping in our arms and waking almost every hour, to sleeping through the night on night one! He is also napping everyday! Keriann far surpassed our expectations! Her expertise gave us the confidence we needed to provide our son with healthy sleep habits. We are forever grateful!
~Melissa, Mom to 5 Month Old
East Greenbush, NY
"With almost a week into sleep training our 5 month old we’ve seen amazing progress! Going from waking ever 1-2 hours to sleeping almost through the night has been truly incredible! We are so thankful and love the support Keriann has given us!"
~Jen, Mom to 5 Month Old
San Antonio, TX
"After successfully sleep training our first baby years ago, we hired Keriann to help us with our second baby around 4 weeks old. He had decided to only sleep on mom, which was not a good long term plan! Keriann gave us a customized plan to slowly help our son sleep in the crib, and he started sleeping through the night (no nursing) at nine weeks old! We had him sleeping in the crib for all naps shortly after that. Her infant sleep plan worked out great for us, and Keriann was incredibly helpful and put in a ton of time helping us and making suggestions along the way. Our son is still sleeping successfully in the crib after my return to the office and his start of daycare, and couldn't be a happier or better-rested baby."
~ Jennifer, Mom to Newborn
"Our daughter was a fantastic sleeper until 5 months of age. Suddenly, she struggled to go to sleep, and when she did, she struggled to stay asleep. She was waking exactly 45 minutes into sleep every single night. Some nights it was taking me 2-3 hours to get her to sleep, just to have her wake again 45 minutes later. She would wake continuously all night long, sometimes every hour. The longest sleep stretches she would have were 3-4 hours. The first night of training with Keriann's guidance, she slept 9.5 hours straight. The second night she slept 11 hours, and ever since she has slept 11-12 hours a night. Last night, I laid her down awake, she was asleep in 3 minutes, and slept 12 hours. I never thought I would be the type of mom to hire a sleep consultant, but it was absolutely worth the investment to restore the happiness, (and sanity!) in our household. Our daughter is sleeping, WE are sleeping, and everyone is better off. Thank you, Keriann."
~ Carrie, Mom to 7 Month Old
"We’re thankful for all of Keriann’s help and guidance in sleep training our 6 month old son. We never thought it would be possible for him to drop his night feedings and sleep through the night. In few short days Keriann’s method had our son in his own room sleeping with very minimal crying. He developed the sleeping skills that set him up for success. We still have some work to do but very happy with the results working with Keriann!"
~Ali, Mom to 6 Month Old
Sugar Land, TX
"We sought Keriann’s help because our 7-week old was refusing to take naps and nursing every two hours or less. I was physically and emotionally exhausted, and I knew our baby was not getting the quality sleep he so desperately needed. Now 12 weeks old, Everett sleeps 11+ hours every night, falls asleep easily for naps, and gets quality feedings. There are a lot of “sleep training” methods and tips out there, but I cannot recommend Keriann enough. She is an absolute professional, and her feedback is geared specifically for our son’s needs and our comfort level. She helped me realize that even as a newborn, Everett is more than capable of developing independent sleep skills. Working with Keriann is one of the best decisions we’ve made for him and our family."
~ Danielle & Toby, parents to 12 Week Old
"Keriann has changed our lives! We called her when my baby was 11 months old. My baby woke every single morning at 4:00 am for several months. He was always ready to start the day and couldn't go back to sleep. He would cry and wake his older brother, and the whole house would be awake before 5:00 am. We were exhausted and frustrated. With her help, our baby now sleeps to at least 6:30 am, and sometimes later! With just a few changes to his schedule and routine, Keriann completely repaired our fractured sleep routine. I cannot recommend her enough!"
~ Allison, Mom to 11 Month Old
Little Rock, AR
"We used Keriann to help when I went back to work and my 4 month old wouldn’t sleep! She worked wonders with my first so the minute we were pregnant the second time, we knew we were going to engage with Keriann from the beginning. We did the newborn package and started working the plan from the minute we got home from the hospital. The first 6 weeks were hard but Keriann answered all of our questions, helped us tweak our plan when we needed it, and supported us all the way. The night before my son turned 9 weeks, he slept through the night. He is now 4 months old and sleeps 12-13 hours a night. He naps like a champ. Thanks to Keriann and her support, we have been getting a full night’s sleep which is very necessary when chasing an 18 month old around the house while caring for an infant. I recommend Dream Factory to any parent struggling with getting their little one to nap or sleep through the night."
~ Emily & Scott, Parents to 12 Week Old & 18 Month Old
St. John, IN
"Having Keriann help us navigate sleep training has been one of the best investments we have made. When we first met Keriann, our 3 month old baby was co-sleeping (NOT recommended or safe but how we managed to get any measure of rest the first 11 weeks), needing 3 feeds a night, and would scream hysterically for hours if put down in his bassinet or swing to sleep. A short two weeks later, he was sleeping in his bassinet through the night without feedings! It has been truly amazing to watch our son learn independent sleeping skills which includes the ability to self-soothe. Sleep skills, including the ability to self-soothe, are not just for infants, they are life skills. Being a child and adolescent licensed mental health counselor, it was extremely important for me to know that what I was doing would not harm the attachment relationship, so it was encouraging to have Keriann, an expert, guide us through this process. We could rest assured knowing our baby was getting what he needed and we were going about this process in a gentle, informed, safe, and caring way. I cannot recommend Keriann enough!"
~ Megan & Chris, Parents to 3 Month Old
"It was so great working with Keriann. Our son was waking up 2-3 times during the night at 6 months old and needed to be rocked to sleep. We tried on our own but could not get him to sleep through the night. At one point we did not know what to do. I was referred to Keriann and contacted her for help. We did not think that our son could be sleep trained. However, Keriann was amazing. She listened to our needs and put together a sleep plan for us. Within 2 days, our son was sleeping through the night. We are so thankful for her and could not have done it without her. Keriann not only met our expectations but well exceed them. I would definitely recommend hiring her. It is well worth it."
~ Rahila, Mom to 7 Month Old
Sugar Land, TX
"We reached out to Keriann when our son was 8 months old. We are first time parents, and even after lots of research on our own, we were having a hard time in the sleep department. Keriann was a life-saver! She shared a wealth of knowledge about infant sleep in general and provided us with a personalized and very detailed independent sleep plan for our son. Following through with her recommendations resulted in better sleep for our whole family within just a few days! We really enjoyed working with Keriann and truly appreciate her positive attitude and patience throughout this journey. We are so thankful for her guidance and would 100% recommend her services."
~ Katie & Ian, Parents to 8 Month Old
"At 16 months, our son was relying on nursing or a bottle to help get him to sleep, and his early rising affected the rest of his day sleep. We had done some sleep training in the past, but it was clear we needed guidance and a plan to implement. Keriann was so professional and my husband and I were so impressed by her demeanor and encouragement! She offered clear, practical tips that we could implement immediately; some of them were simple environment changes that had a huge impact. She cared to know our son wholly - not just his sleep habits - so she could cater the plan solely to him. Her communication and proactiveness helped us adjust his plan as needed and track his progress. He is now sleeping through the night without any of his old crutches and has learned the tools needed to have a restful night’s sleep. I never thought I would see a day where he was done with the bottle and nursing, and enjoyed his bedtime routine! Thank you SO much to Keriann and Dream Factory Sleep Solutions for helping us all get more sleep!!"
~ Lauren, Mom to 16 Month Old
"It was both incredibly informative and delightful to work with Keriann. At consultation, she made clear that the program could be customized to our comfort level. The many questions we had surrounding the implementation and success of the program were thoroughly answered at each stage; Keriann did well to quell our concerns, providing positive and constructive feedback on Mom, Dad, and Baby. Her communication was consistent, prompt, and data-driven, which was especially important to Mom and Dad's understanding of the new sleep skills being taught. The program was a stellar success: we progressed from 7 to 0 wakings. Our 6 month old, and Mom!, now enjoy 12 consecutive hours of sleep nightly. Thank you, Keriann!"
~ Amanda, Mom to 6 Month Old
"When we started working with Keriann our son Shane was 6 months old and still waking up almost every hour. I was almost at my breaking point! We successfully sleep trained our older son on our own but I knew we needed more help this time. We needed someone to hold our hand through the process and tell us exactly what to do every step of the way. Keriann did exactly that and more! I loved that she tracked his progress daily and altered the plan as needed. Shane started sleeping through the night almost immediately. It was honestly the best decision we’ve made. We are all getting good sleep now thanks to Keriann!”
~ Shawn & Alisha, Parents to 7 Month Old
"If your family needs help learning the skills needed to consistently get a good night’s rest, I’d highly recommend working with Keriann. She’s professional and taught me and my husband so much about infant sleep. Our 6-month-old was waking every few hours during the night, but we saw a dramatic improvement as soon as we started working with Keriann. Our little one began sleeping through the night by night three and has continued to do so.
I must admit, I was nervous about how this would work being long distance from Keriann but it wasn’t an issue at all. Keriann created a customized plan for us, monitored progress daily, scheduled multiple calls when a discussion was needed and even FaceTimed with us during the initial meeting so I could show her our setup and sleep environment.
I can’t say enough good things about Keriann and the program she created. We didn’t realize how sleep deprived we were. It was worth every penny…and more!"
~ Lindsey, Mom to 6 Month Old
"[Keriann] helped me so very much and when we needed her most! With a 25 month old and 9 month old; they were both going through sleep adjustments and we are now right back on track. Thank you for your help! HIGHLY recommend."
~ Kathryn, Mom to 25 & 9 Month Olds
"Jordan has always been a good sleeper but you enabled me to teach him good sleeping skills that I can teach to him throughout his life as he grows and develops. Your support allowed me to feel secure and confident during the sleep training process, which allowed me to make Jordan feel safe during this process. He loves his bed, he can soothe himself if he wakes up, and he now feels comfortable sleeping anywhere!"
~ Johanna, Mom to 5 Month Old
"Keriann knows what she is talking about. She can help you get your child to sleep through the night!"
~ Julie, "Mom Remade" Blogger
"At 7 months our baby girl was waking up every 2 hours and was co sleeping with us. I was constantly nursing or rocking her to sleep. I was tired all the time because I literally hadn’t had a full nights rest since birth. I was so afraid of the CIO method that I kept pushing off sleep training all together. Once we hit rock bottom, we knew we needed help. After researching/ speaking to several sleep trainers in the metroplex, I decided to go with Keriann. It was honestly the best decision we made. Keriann’s methods were VERY gentle and comforting. She’s extremely thorough and tracks your progress daily. I appreciated that she followed up with me often and gave me constructive criticism when needed.
It’s been 2 weeks since we began this journey and Riyana is now sleeping through the night, in her own crib, in her own room. Our baby is now even happier than she was before. In fact, bedtime makes her excited now and she’s all giggles during the process. I would highly recommend going with Keriann. She’s not only professional and knowledgeable but also truly cares."
~ Shaliza, Mom to 8 Month Old
"Working with Keriann has been such a delight. What is first striking about her is how professional and knowledgeable she is about babies, their sleep cycles, capabilities and appropriate milestones. Even though we are THIRD time parents, we found ourselves with a baby who could only sleep with crutches (while nursing, while being carried, while in a car), and no lie, bedtime would sometimes take up to TWO hours, and when she would sleep on us and when we’d put her down, sometimes she would wake up immediately after all that hard work!
We knew something had to change, and based on a Facebook mom-group referral, I called Keriann. She made us feel comfortable during the initial consultation, and we decided on the package that was appropriate for our family: 1 onsite visit, followed by support via email and phone for 2 weeks. She made a schedule for us where we could log naps, night sleeps, and feedings. The first night was not easy, but within 3-4 days we saw a VAST improvement. For once, we could put our baby down AWAKE, and she would go to sleep on her own. Quite literally unbelievable. At the same time, logging her feedings made us realize she needed to tank up more during the day, in order to last at night. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Keriann, she’s compassionate, intelligent and understands, as a mother, some of the struggles we face. I joked around and say, I need to have her on retainer in case I have some quick questions. She’s a godsend!"
~ Chris, Mom to 6 Month Old
"I wish I got help from Keriann sooner. One of the best decisions I have ever made for myself and for my child. My 6 year old son has not slept through the night since he was 2 and a half. Once we moved him from his crib life changed drastically. I honestly didn’t think he would ever sleep in his own bed again. 2 weeks later he’s sleeping in his own bed and even told me he likes his bed now. It was not an easy process to get where we are but it’s the best work and money I have put into my child. Thank you Keriann for helping me to give my child the skills he needs to sleep independently. Forever grateful!"
~ Leah, Mom to 6 Year Old
"We are so happy with Jaxon's progress! Keriann came up with a plan and goals that were realistic for our family. I only wish I would have done this 4 months ago!"
~ Christina, Mom to 7 Month Old
"Keriann was amazing! After attempting many different methods, she found one that worked for us. Our baby would wake up every 1-2 hrs, nurse to sleep, and get herself worked up to crying for hours. There was so much she taught us about sleep and we found a gentle method that worked for our daughter with less crying than other methods we tried. She is very familiar with different temperaments and knew exactly what to do. . She is so understanding and promptly answered our specific questions. It was so great having her support and encouragement during our sleep deprived state. Summer slept through the night by DAY 3. She cried less than the other methods we attempted and we were so surprised. Highly recommend her service —the lifelong gift of sleep for our baby was worth every penny."
~ Angie, Mom to 11 Month Old
“My husband and I felt like we knew how to teach a baby to sleep after having successfully done so twice before. Then along came our third baby who reminded us that EVERY BABY IS DIFFERENT, so we were very thankful to have Keriann’s help with our 8 week old! She helped us navigate the stress of acid reflux and break the sleep habits we created because of it. It was very helpful to have a personalized plan specific to our baby’s needs rather than us parents second guessing ourselves every nap or night time. Keriann was patient, encouraging, and reassuring through every part of the process. Thanks to her, we confidently went from bouncing and co-sleeping every nap/night to unswaddled in the crib at 13 weeks!”
~ Kristin, Mom to 13 week old
"Working with Keriann was by far one of the best decisions we have made thus far. She guided us patiently through sleep training our 6 month old and putting him on a schedule for feeding and naps. She was always very responsive when we had questions and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend her and are so happy we chose to work with her!"
~ Sharon, Mom to 6 Month Old
"Working with Keriann is the best decision and investment we made with our newborn. When we first met with Keriann, our daughter was 6 1/2 weeks old, waking and eating 3-4 times per night, and had no daytime nap routine whatsoever. I wasn’t at my tipping point yet, but I was close and I knew we were starting to get into some bad habits that I wanted to nip in the bud. Keriann established expectations early on that this would be a gradual process, but we started to see changes and improvements in sleep patterns almost immediately due in large part to the simple environmental changes we made following Keriann’s in-home assessment. Keriann was proactive in reviewing our sleep log and providing helpful feedback, tips and support. Soon 3 nighttime wakings/feedings became 2, then 1. And then that 1 nighttime waking/feeding got later and later until our baby was sleeping through the night consistently by 12 weeks! We traveled with our daughter for the first time at 10 weeks, and thanks to Keriann’s help, the trip went smoothly and the baby slept and napped really well. Working with Keriann has been an exceptional experience that we would recommend to everyone!"
~ Jennifer, Mom to 12 Week Old
"After 14 months of night wakings and rocking Frankie to sleep we knew we needed help, but were so nervous to take on sleep training. Keriann was with us every step of the way. She made sure we were comfortable with everything we were doing and talked us through all our questions and hesitations. Her methods were gentle yet effective and in less than 2 weeks our little one was putting himself to sleep and sleeping through the night! Our family is forever grateful!"

"When my husband and I couldn't get our son, Harrison to sleep through the night, we had no idea what to do. We had tried so many different things, and after 9 months of sleepless nights we knew something had to change. I had never heard of a pediatric sleep consultant, but in doing some research, I came across Keriann's website. I immediately e-mailed her, and after speaking with her, we knew she was the answer. She made everything so simple, and walked us through every step. Within 3 DAYS, our son was sleeping through the entire night! This had never happened before, and we were absolutely shocked at how well and quickly Keriann's plan worked for us! By the end of the first week, we were able to lay Harrison down in his crib WITHOUT crying, have him sleep through the entire night and get in 2 good naps a day! This is easily the best decision we have made for our family. If you are considering contacting Keriann, don't wait another minute!"
~ Meghan, Mom to 9 Month Old
"My husband and I contacted Keriann after our oldest son continually struggled to stay in his big boy bed and fought me on naps daily. Henry came to our room all hours of the night throwing tantrums and demanding one of us sleep in his bed with him. After welcoming our second son into our family we were exhausted from not only being up with a baby all night, but our two year old as well. Keriann put together a seamless plan for us to follow. It was difficult throughout our first week, but we stuck to the program and put our faith in Keriann. Within several weeks Henry was able to sleep in his room and go down for naps and night time without a fight. He has been able to travel successfully to grandparents houses and our lake house even staying in his bed there!
Keriann also helped us with our 4 month old, Hampton. We struggled with fussy evenings and having to continually rock him until he was dead asleep, only to have to do so again when he woke up during the night. We were able to remove all sleep props and he can now put himself to sleep within a matter of minutes. He also began sleeping through the night at 4.5 months with these tools!
I feel confident that we can handle future bumps in the road with the tools that we have been given moving forward. Keriann is professional and such a caring, sweet person to guide you in your journey. My husband and I have now been going on weekly date nights because our kids are calm and in bed at a decent time of night! It has been a blessing and everyone is happier for it! Thanks Keriann!"
~ Laura, Mom to 2.5 year old & 4 month old
"I was desperate when I found Dream Factory Sleep Solutions. Due to reflux and severe lip and tongue ties, my son Lucas nursed around the clock from the day he was born. Even after mouth surgery, feeding therapy and reflux medicine, he continued to nurse every two hours. As time continued and as we encountered many illnesses, Lucas began sleeping only 30-60 minutes at a time! Neither of us was getting healthy, restorative sleep. After 14 months, sleep deprivation was taking its toll and I couldn’t function anymore. I was sick all the time. I was struggling working full time and I wasn’t at my best at home either. My body was present but I was so tired, I wasn’t fully present mentally and I felt like I was missing out on life and most importantly, precious moments with my son. I had become Zombie Mommy! When Lucas turned 14 months old, I finally reached my breaking point. I knew I needed help ASAP. I didn’t have the time or the brain cells to read multiple books and compile my research to figure out what would be best for my son and our particular situation and our history. I needed someone to literally take control and just break it down for me step by step and tell me what to do. Keriann did this for me! I was terrified at the beginning but Keriann helped soothe all my fears with factual, scientific based research. My husband and I don’t believe in the cry it out (extinction) method and she was able to give us a gentle approach to use. The process went more smoothly than we had imagined. By the sixth night, Lucas was sleeping through the night! The support Keriann provided was amazing and I’m so glad we chose her to help us. Her help has been a wonderful blessing to our family! And best of all, we have given Lucas the gift of quality, healthy sleep and skills he can use throughout his childhood and beyond! We will be forever grateful."

"Our 6 month old Ensley was a terrible sleeper and napper and was waking every 30 to 40 min all night long pretty much every night. Still sleeping in our room, mainly in a rock and play with a pacifier that I had to put back in ten times a night. Keriann was so welcoming and thought she could really help us. She made us an individualized sleep plan for our baby. There was an entire routine set up for us to follow with times and instructions, and spread sheets for 2 weeks to track her sleep. It was all very clear and concise and that is exactly what we needed. I needed a schedule to follow because we had trouble establishing one. We learned so much about infants and sleep. From sleep props to sleep cycles to sleep environment. Sleep training is not easy but if you can stick with it, it is so worth it! Ensley was sleeping through the night, in her crib in her room, on NIGHT 2!
This experience has seriously saved my sanity. My baby is a new baby, she is actually happy now that she isn’t sleep deprived. My husband and I have some time to ourselves again at night. And everything overall is better! I would hire Keriann ten times again. She has been a lifesaver to our family and we cannot thank her enough. We now have the tools we need for our baby to learn to put herself to sleep and sleep through the night!"
~ Bree, Mom to 6 Month Old
"We are so thankful for the help that Keriann provided!! Our 3rd child was 5 months old and would not go to sleep without being nursed or rocked. She was also sleeping in our bed and would wake up multiple times throughout the night. We felt hopeless as far as her sleep was concerned. Keriann talked us through a plan, monitored our progress daily, made adjustments where necessary, and encouraged us at every step of the way. Our daughter is now sleeping in her crib where she falls asleep on her own for naps and bedtime.She also sleeps through the night! It has truly changed our lives! We can really enjoy our time with her when she's awake because we know she is well rested and has a consistent sleep schedule."
~ Lisa, Mom to 6 Month Old
"Before we met Keriann I was co-sleeping with Bennett at night. He was waking every 45 minutes to be nursed back to sleep. His naps during the day lasted 30 minutes or less and overall he was a tired baby. We rocked, nursed or used whatever method we could think of to get Bennett to sleep. But the sleep never lasted. As we were approaching six months of this craziness I knew something had to change. I had never heard of a sleep consultant or used one. Our first child was a wonderful sleeper and I felt like a complete failure with the second. I interviewed five consultants. Keriann was the only one that reached out after the call to check on me. She was the only one that offered unlimited email support during the two week period. This piece of her package was the most crucial to my success. I needed to know she was there any time I needed her, and she was! Her email responses were also quick enough to help me solve the problem.
The first night was the hardest, but it drastically improved night two and three. After that, minus a few hiccups it was a breeze. She made it simple and straight forward. There was no guess work for us to argue over or wonder about. We just finished our two week program and Bennett is sleeping 12-13 hours EVERY single night. He is also napping both at daycare and at home for 1.5-2 hours in the morning and 1-1.5 hours in the afternoon. He does not need to be rocked, nursed or use a pacifier to go to sleep. This is a miracle. He is happier and healthier because of this, and his parents are well rested and rejuvenated after this experience. Even my super skeptical and analytical husband thinks this is the best thing we have spent money on in a LONG time. If you are thinking about hiring Keriann, stop thinking and do it! You will not regret getting more sleep and giving your baby the skills they need to sleep, it’s one of the most important things they need to know how to do."

“Keriann has made our nights less stressful and a joy! We were so sure our 6 month old would never sleep in his crib, let alone through the night. Using her methods and support, we now have a well rested baby, and well rested parents! Thank you, Keriann for giving us our sanity and sleep back!”
~ Megan, Mom to 6 Month Old
"Before Keriann our 15 month old never slept more than an hour in his crib. Forget about laying him down awake... he’d cry til he threw up. He is now going on two months sleeping 10-12 hours in his crib every single night. We honestly thought this would never happen with our son. We still can’t believe we can lay him down at 7:30pm and not get him out again until 7am. It’s been life changing for not only him, but my wife and I. Thanks Keriann!"
~ Nate, Dad to 15 Month Old
Cedar Park, TX
"I wish we would've called Keriann sooner! I was scared and hesitated but once we made the call finally it was life changing for us!!! Getting our baby to sleep is SO much easier! I didn't want to do cry it out so she was able to give us gentle methods and my daughter responded way better than I thought and transitioned easily! We were able to go from rocking, bottle feeding & nursing to sleep EVERY time for naps, nights and several wakings to weaning her from all that and being able to just lay her down! So now when I hear others having obstacles, I just tell them that they need to make the call! It will change things for the better! Thanks again Keriann! I just gave another friend your info!"
~ Tanya, Mom to 18 Month Old
"After months of rocking, bouncing, or feeding to sleep I was physically and emotionally exhausted. We decided to hire Keriann. It was the best decision I could have made! I was initially worried because of my sons reflux and GI problems. We came up with a plan that worked well for him and one that I was comfortable with. He’s now almost 7 months old and is a completely different baby! He’s sleeping through the night and naps are much better. He’s well rested and happy! And so am I!"

"Keriann has been a lifesaver for our household. Our sweet daughter, Morgan, would only sleep if she was held or on her tummy for a few hours. Two weeks prior to starting daycare I decided to reach out to sleep consultants. I Immediately felt at peace after speaking to Keriann. I knew what we would accomplish with Keriann working with us would not only be helpful but help our sweet baby get the safe sleep she so desperately needed.
After creating a sleep schedule and plan, Keriann reviewed step by step what we could expect the first few nights we implemented. Within 24 hours, Morgan's naps were the longest she ever had slept. After 3 days, Morgan went from waking every 2-4 hours at night to sleeping 10-12 hour stretches. We couldn’t believe it! Morgan was getting the sleep she needed and we were too. In addition to helping Morgan’s sleep at home, Keriann prepared a sleep plan guidance document for daycare.
I truly am grateful to Keriann for all she has done. We are now able to enjoy our sweet baby girl so much more now that we are all resting better and this would not have been possible without Keriann! Dream Factory rocks!"
~ Camy, Mom to 3 month old
“We came to Keriann after a very difficult vacation where our 12 month old did not sleep well at all. Generally speaking, before we contacted her, once our son was asleep he stayed asleep, our concerns were related to his dependency on the nursing to fall asleep, as well as early wakings, and nap inconsistencies (despite a rigorous schedule). My friend had told us that when her nephew went down to sleep, it was a breeze, just put him in his crib, give him his blankie, and walk out the door - that was my dream so I called up for a consult.
Keriann helped us achieve that dream after a very comprehensive assessment, she incorporated some schedule adjustments and calming techniques. The process did take us a little longer than originally planned because we encountered an ear infection in our first week and then in our last week, we determined that he was actually ready to transition to 1 nap per day. Keriann was very patient and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. I have already recommended her out to several people and if we ever have baby number 2 and are in need or her services again, I will not hesitate to call her long before baby hits 12 months!”
~ Gennea, Mom to 12 month old
"Before I started working with Keriann I was exhausted, frustrated, and defeated. My 5-month-old was waking up constantly throughout the night. When I started Keriann's plan, I was seriously shocked at how quickly Emilia's sleep improved. I loved how Keriann made me feel confident in the plan and I didn't have to stress over anything. I just followed her instructions, and it really worked! We are now so much happier, and well-rested, thanks to Keriann!"
~ Kacie, Mom to 5 month old
"Thanks to Keriann, my sweet, little, 10-month-old is sleeping through the night. He had colic and was diagnosed with acid reflux when he was a month old. My husband and I were at a loss and resorted to co-sleeping. We were totally in survival mode. Keriann gave us a detailed sleep plan and, honestly, the whole process went way more smoothly than I anticipated. We received all the support we needed and it was absolutely the best money we have ever spent. My little guy is happier during the day, as he has developed the ability to self-soothe. My husband and I feel like we have regained control over our life. Thank you Keriann!"
~ Lindsey, Mom to 10 month old
"We cannot say thank you enough! Keriann helped us more than we thought possible - Tommy was a tough case. We are so proud of him and beyond ecstatic that everyone is getting sleep!"
~ Kristin, Mom to 7 month old
Ocean City, MD
"Working with Keriann was absolutely wonderful. So wonderful that we now have a sleeping toddler! When we stared working with Keriann our daughter was 11 months and struggled to put herself to sleep and also stay asleep through the night. She is now sleeping at least 11 hours a night and is no longer restless. My husband was pretty skeptical when we first started the sleeping plan provided by Keriann. Not because he didn't have faith in her, but we knew our baby. After the 3rd night of her training she was already sleeping through the night. Win win!! Our daughter is happier, able to focus and is thriving in all areas. We owe this to Keriann! We highly recommend her. Oh, and we are sleeping too!"
~ Jordan, Mom to 11 month old
“I finally gave in and searched for a sleep consultant when I had had enough after 14 months of sleepless nights. I was beyond exhausted, my body was aging before my eyes, no one else was sleeping, and most importantly our 14-month old baby surely wasn’t getting the healthy quality sleep he needed. This being our third child, you’d think I could do it myself, but the truth was I had tried a few techniques but always gave in because of an illness, teething, or me being just plain exhausted. I was too tired and time constrained while taking care of 3 kids ages 6 and under to research it further and experiment with more techniques. And my husband’s job is such that he can’t help much at night, but like me he was exhausted, too, since our son seemed to wake every 2 hours and need help going back to sleep.
Keriann immediately renewed my faith with her calm demeanor, logical, comprehensive, and very scientifically based approach. Being from a technical background, this appealed to me. I would have never figured out that I was possibly feeding our son too much milk for his age, leading him to not eat enough solids to sustain him through the night without hunger. Likewise, I never knew the criticality of WHEN your baby naps, and balancing the number of wake-time hours so that he isn’t overly tired at bed time. Nor did I know that a late night to bed can lead to early waking the next morning. It’s this impressive knowledge of the science behind sleep that Keriann utilized to expertly guide us to get our son to sleep through the night -12 hours - .... after only 3 nights of training! And she does it without even an ounce of judgement. Instead, she just pulls you forward with gentle guidance and support. Now I just wish I done this 6 months ago or earlier! Thank you, Keriann, for restoring sanity and rested minds & bodies in this household!”
~ Christy, Mom to 15 month old
"It was such a pleasure working with Keriann. She was very supportive and responsive through the whole process. Before I contacted Keriann my 4 month old was finding her way into my bed more and more. My ultimate goal was getting my baby girl to have restful and independent sleep in her own crib. I didn't feel very confident about making my own plan and sticking to it. By night two I was already so impressed with my little one's progress! I now feel like I have all the tools and knowledge to promote and maintain our new healthy sleep habits. Keriann helped me make a plan that I was comfortable with, and the confidence to see it through. I would highly recommend her. Thanks a million Keriann!!"
~ Kristen, Mom to 4 month old
"Choosing Keriann as my sleep consultant was the best decision I ever made! When I came to Keriann, I was at my wits end. I spent my days aimlessly driving around town because that’s the only way my daughter would take naps. I came to dread bedtime as I would spend 2+ hours just trying to get my daughter in the crib. It got to the point I was sleeping in the recliner with my daughter in the nursery because we just needed to sleep. She was also still feeding 2-3 times per night. I had spent hours reading through internet blogs and bought multiple books looking for answers. I would start reading the books but then get inundated with all the “fluff”. Nothing seemed to address my specific needs. I was at the point I just needed someone to tell me exactly what to do.
Keriann came up with a plan specific to our needs. Throughout the process, she was knowledgeable, encouraging, and extremely responsive to questions. She would monitor what the sleep patterns were and would make suggestions based on what was happening. Each time she made a recommendation, she was spot on. I truly believe I would not have been successful at sleep training had she not been there coaching me along. She gives you back up plans to ensure you are successful and gives you exact steps you need to take if something happens that is off plan. This isn’t anything I could have gotten from a book.
I’m so EXCITED to say we have had complete success with the program. There was a huge improvement after Night 1. Let me say that again...NIGHT 1!!! My daughter is now taking naps in the crib and sleeping 12 hours through the night with NO night feedings! I now no longer have to spend my days driving around town for naps, I have my evenings back to spend time with the rest of my family, and we are all finally sleeping!"
~ Kristen, Mom to 8 month old
"We are so grateful for you, Keriann! You were a God-send to our family. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us in such a patient and thorough way. Throughout the whole process we felt like we were on the same team and you gave such great (and quick) support. Your detailed plan made us feel very prepared before going into it all and gave us great tools for reference. Not only has Whitton's sleep done a complete 180, but I now have more time to spend with my older son during the day while he naps and with my husband at night. What a blessing you were to our family. 'Thank you' from some well rested parents."
~ Kailey & Ryan, Parents to 9 month old
"With Keriann's support and guidance we tackled what my husband and I had been struggling with for months.... sleep! Our 11 month old was waking 3-4 times a night and was so restless that I didn't think it was possible for any of us to get the rest we get now. The restlessness is gone and she sleeps 11 hours at night without waking up! We are so thankful we contacted Keriann and would do it over and over again. Being first time parents we felt defeated. My husband did not think hiring a sleep consultant would help. Guess who proved him wrong, Keriann. :) Our daughter is a new baby. She is happy all the time and believe it or not gets excited when we talk about taking a nap. Keriann made us feel comfortable and confident and gave us our sleep back! We are forever grateful."
~Jordan, Mom to 11 month old
I never dreamed I would ever hire a sleep consultant. We had successfully sleep trained our first child, and I was so determined to do things “right” when our second baby came along. I was hoping this time we wouldn’t have to sleep train (obviously, she would be a perfect sleeper from the beginning because I wouldn’t make the same mistakes I made with our first). Finley arrived, and all my best laid plans went out the window. Due to reflux, she couldn’t sleep without spitting up unless she was upright for her first four months. We ended up co-sleeping; her in my arms, nursing throughout the night. It was the only way we both got sleep. For naps, I wore her in the baby carrier. Any time I tried to get her to sleep in her crib, asleep, drowsy or awake, it didn’t matter--she just wouldn’t stay asleep for long or go to sleep on her own.
We hit six months, and the reflux was getting better, but I knew we were in a bad place sleepwise. Finley was one hundred percent dependent on me to sleep. She got to the point where she would not even let me lay her down right NEXT to me without screaming her head off. She had to be IN my arms. I tried “gentle” ways of encouraging her to gradually sleep in the crib (sidecarred next to the bed we slept in) and she would have none of it! I was going to bed with her every night at 6:30 or 7. I really missed hanging out with my husband, or being able to have a few minutes of quiet time to myself. At the same time, in my tired fog, I had also allowed a ton of guilt to creep into my mind as I read many of the opinions out there about how cruel and wrong it is to sleep train. I really didn’t want to do it. However, after seven months of this, I knew we had to take drastic measures for the well-being of our whole family.
We attempted cry it out, after realizing other methods wouldn’t work. A few weeks into sleep training, Finley was getting there, but wasn’t doing great. She still wouldn’t nap in her crib, and I had given up trying. I went back to wearing a sleeping, eighteen pound baby for hours a day (while caring for my three-year-old). Then, we moved. Everything got thrown off, and we went back to square one. I couldn’t take it anymore. It felt like we were flying blind. I couldn’t handle any more crying. I was having panic attacks, and my anxiety was through the roof. We were right back where we started, and I was riddled with guilt for doing this to my baby.
I was at the end of my rope when I called Keriann for a free fifteen minute consultation. I was too exhausted to try anything else or make sense of all the sleep books I had read. I needed someone to just tell me what to do. It was one of the best decisions we could have made! Keriann came up with a detailed plan, tailored to Finley and our family. She explained everything thoroughly and patiently answered our questions. Once we were ready to begin (Finley was nine months), Keriann helped us carry it out, troubleshoot (a lot), and eventually achieve success! It wasn’t always an easy process, but having Keriann’s guidance and support is what got us through and made us reach our goal--Finley learning to fall asleep without my help, in her own bed!
Keriann was absolutely invaluable. We could not have done this without her. She made us believe that not only we could do this, but Finley could as well. She was so encouraging, putting my mind at ease when I shared my doubts and anxiety about sleep training. We felt truly supported and that Keriann was on our team, pulling for us and for Finley. Our sweet baby girl now sleeps around twelve hours at night IN HER CRIB, takes two naps a day IN HER CRIB, and is thriving in every way. A week or so after we “graduated” from working with Keriann, our whole family got hit with a virus. Finley was able to use her sleep skills to get the rest she needed to heal (and we were, as well). My husband and I finally got to go on a date without a baby, for the first time in over ten months! The Dream Factory Sleep Package was the best Christmas gift we could have gotten one another, and we are so grateful for the life-changing results of better rest for our whole family!

"I highly recommend Dream Factory Sleep Solutions. My second child continued to have multiple night time wakings and I felt completely drained to just keep up with normal life. Keriann was in depth and caring and extremely encouraging. Thanks to her, my 10 month old child responded quickly and fairly easily to sleeping through the night and my entire family is better for it."

"We had a baby who was clingy and fussy straight from the get go (colicky as some might say.) We were waiting and hoped it would quickly pass. It wasn't until he was about 6 months he began to become a happier baby. But, despite this, he still didn't sleep. Months went by as we did what we could to get shut eye: sleeping in the recliner, putting him in bed with us, it was terrible and we had enough. Around his first birthday, We sought the help of Keriann. I was very nervous about sleep training him knowing his personality. I thought we had a long, hard journey ahead. We received our plan and once we got started, he was sleeping through most of the night by night three! It was amazing. Naps did take longer for him and were a bit tougher. But after a few weeks, he was willing to nap (even pointing to his room when tired.)
We are so happy we used Keriann's services and would recommend to all those sleepless parents!"
~ Nicole, Mom to 1 year old
"Keriann and Dream Factory Sleep Solutions made our dreams come true! Our 10 month old, Connor, was waking up every 2 hours or less throughout the night. Now he sleeps 12.5 hours straight and consistently every night! I forgot what it was like to have a good night sleep. Connor is not only sleeping through the night but, he is also taking nice long naps during the day and he seems so much happier! Keriann is AMAZING!"

"Without knowing or planning to, I slowly adopted an attachment parenting style with my son when he was three months old. He breastfed on demand and co-slept with me until I met Keriann. I had tried other methods, read books, etc to try and transition him to a crib without a full cry out experience and I never successfully completed any of those methods. I always felt better with my baby close to me; especially because of the frequent traveling I was forced to do with him because of my job. As he grew older I realized neither of us were sleeping through the night without a feeding; and that he could not sleep without me and my breast. I knew that had to stop. At this point my son was 20 months old. It was more then a bad habit; it became my lifestyle. Keriann was very helpful with all of my concerns; she gave me the tools and confidence to believe in my son and myself. We could make this transition and it didn’t have to be torture. After a detailed plan and consistent execution, we successfully transitioned my son into a twin bed in his own room without breastfeeding to sleep or throughout the night. He felt like a big boy! And I felt like I had some of my own freedom back. He is now able to sleep for other people which is huge as well. Keriann kept close attention to us while we went through the plan and without her diligence and patience I don’t believe I would’ve stuck with it. She is wonderful, she knows all the tricks and has extensive experience in every part of this process. I highly recommend her for any sleep issues your child may be having, and at any age."
~Franchesca, Mom to 23 month old
"Keriann was an absolute joy to work with. She helped me achieve what I thought was impossible. As a mom who was still nursing at night, and co-sleeping half of it, I never thought I would see the day that my daughter would willingly and easily go to sleep all night long in her crib. In just a few days, we had a toddler that slept through the night, independently! I had a fear of many nights of crying and stress for both Mia and I, but the process was gentle and very easy to follow. I would highly recommend Keriann and Dream Factory. She is a wealth of knowledge and very patient. You will not regret it!"
~ Aman, Mom to 19 month old
"We were desperate and sleep deprived when we made the call to Keriann at Dream Factory. My 4.5 month old was in the midst of a brutal sleep regression and my husband and I were feeling like the walking dead. Keriann gave us clear instructions on how to get our little one on track. She was very responsive to all of the questions we had. The first couple of nights were rough, but Keriann was great about telling us what we should expect and how to handle each situation, so we felt equipped to handle it and we also had hope that it wouldn't last. After the first couple of days we began to see major improvements in our little one's nap quality as well as her nighttime sleep. At the end of the 2 weeks working with Keriann, our baby was sleeping through the night with few exceptions and was napping like a champion! Keriann left us with some great guidelines for the future as our little one grows and we feel well prepared for the future! We would absolutely recommend Dream Factory to anyone needing assistance in the sleep department with their little one!"
~ Emily & Scott, parents to 5 month old
St. John, IN
"It's understated to say that I was hesitant or anxious about beginning this program, but things needed to change as no one in our home was getting decent sleep. Bedtime alone was exhausting, but to follow that with an average seven wake ups during the night, all of us were dragging. Keriann was able to determine the best method for our situation and our son's personality. Unfortunately, in the middle of the process, Bennett came down with a cold and an ear infection (which turned into a double ear infection with a ruptured ear drum). Keriann was able to make modifications so that we could allow for comfort without regressing and confusing him. With some fine tuning, Bennett was sleeping through the night by the end of everything. The timing couldn't have been better because he really needed rest with being so sick! I am so thankful for Keriann's assistance and guidance. Our family is now well rested and we have a happy baby again!"
~ Amanda, Mom to 8 month old
Fort Worth, TX
"I don’t even know where to begin on how amazing Keriann is and how tremendous her impact has been on our family since utilizing her services. Our 2 year old has never been a good sleeper. At first we attributed this to being a baby, another sleep regression or this is just how she is, etc. Excuses, thats what those were. We knew but still didn’t realize how detrimental our daughter’s lack of sleep was to her overall well being. She now sleeps through the night and does not wake up at 3, 4 or 5 am! Gone is the cranky, over tired, picky eater. Meal times were horrendous and tantrums an everyday, all day occurrence. Now we have much fewer tantrums and she eats… she eats! I would whole heartedly recommend Keriann to anyone and say it is worth every penny. Not only is she professional, knowledgable and easily accessible, but she truly cares about achieving the goals set forth for your child. I will definitely be using her again without hesitation if the need arises."
~ Neha, Mom to 2 year old
“We hired Keriann for help with our third child, and we wish we had done it with our first and second kids, too! She was such a joy to work with. Extremely professional, very knowledgeable and just a lovely person all around. My husband and I both enjoyed checking in with her through email and calls, and we could not believe the difference she made in such a short period of time. I would recommend her to anyone! (And I have!) If you are on the fence, let me reassure you this was WORTH EVERY PENNY for our family. We’d do it again in a heartbeat. Everyone getting consistent sleep is worth the money and time!”
~ Allison & Ryan, parents to 5 month old
"As second time parents we thought we knew exactly what to do to help our baby girl develop good sleep skills and settle into a routine. When Ellis proved to be a much more temperamental sleeper than our first daughter, we knew we needed help. With Keriann's guidance, Ellis went from needing to be nursed or rocked to sleep every 2-3 hours at night and for naps, to sleeping 12 hours through the night and taking two consistent and scheduled naps a day. We never knew what we were going to get for any night or nap time with Ellis and now we can confidently kiss her goodnight, put her in her crib and walk out knowing she will go to sleep easily and sleep well! Keriann was a dream to work with and we highly recommend her!"
~ Karinn & Connor, parents to 9 month old
"When we had our third child, I felt confident we knew what we were doing in all aspects. Fast forward 6 months, he was still waking up 3 times at night, had no sort of nap schedule, and we had created numerous bad habits that hindered his sleep. I was overwhelmed and frankly, didn't have the mental energy (probably because I was sleep deprived) to tackle our baby's sleep issues. I knew I needed help. Keriann provided expert advice, encouragement, and straightforward coaching. She taught me many things I didn't know about infant sleep, but never once made me feel incompetent as a parent. I'm so glad I contacted her. Working with her was a great experience and we've all benefited so much from sleep training our baby!"
~ Katy, Mom to 7 month old
"Keriann was an answered prayer for our family! After 2 years of trying to get our toddler to enjoy bedtime on our own we finally called Keriann. From the moment we spoke I felt calm, confident, and hopeful she could help us. She not only helped us tremendously, but exceeded our expectations. The strategies and routines she helped us put in place have created the most peaceful evenings for us. We are no longer sleep deprived, frustrated parents. Our daughter loves her bedtime routine and we are all finally well rested. I will be using Keriann again when our son is born in January. I feel so relieved that I have the right tools to help both my babies sleep soundly!"
~ Becca, Mom to 2 year old
"Keriann changed our life! Our 3-year-old had only gone to bed before 10pm a handful of times in her entire life. She had been a struggle to put to sleep basically since she was 4 months old. After having our second baby, we felt like we desperately needed help not only with our toddler, but also with our new baby. Keriann had wonderful suggestions on how to start our newborn on the right track to sleeping well and to get our stubborn toddler excited about trying something new when it came to bedtime! Our daughter now sleeps at 7:30 pm every night and wakes up on her own and energized twelve hours later. Her younger brother (just 11 weeks old) is now doing about the same. Keriann's plan was specific, easy to follow, and most of all, effective, because it gave our daughter a very active role and made her feel like she had truly accomplished something. She still talks about her "bedtime routine," sometimes even to complete strangers. Quite frankly, so do we, because evenings at our household are no longer a source of stress."
~ Jessica, Mom to 3 year old & newborn
"Working with Keriann has been a joy. She heard our concerns, created an individualized plan for our child and was very flexible with what we were willing to do. As a father and husband I can feel pretty lost navigating the infant stage and especially when it comes to sleep, but she helped simplify the process and gave us specific, tangible strategies that worked. We highly recommend her to any parents with a child struggling to sleep well."
~ Mitch, Dad to 8 month old
"I heard about Keriann through another friend, a friend that knew I was desperate for sleep. I was a little skeptical, but was willing to try anything! In a matter of days, Keriann had our sweet girl go from hardly napping at all and waking up 4-5 times a night, to taking two solid naps a day, and sleeping 11-12 hours each night. I truly feel like a new woman!! My husband and I have our nights back! We owe it all to Keriann! She took the time to understand our family and Layla's needs and answered any questions we had. Her kind and patient demeanor made Keriann a pleasure to work with! We HIGHLY recommend Keriann and Dream Factory Sleep Solutions to anyone that is struggling to get their little one to get a good nights rest."
~Jacqueline, Mom to 8 month old
"I think a lot of people believe that if their baby is a "bad sleeper," they just have to endure it until the child grows to become a better sleeper. I thought that it might be months or even longer before mine would sleep through the night. It turns out that it only took two weeks.
Our 6-month-old, Abby, was waking several times each night and she was not taking consistent naps, either. We started working with Keriann, and she helped us to teach Abby independent sleep and soothing skills. It was really wonderful to watch her go from crying after being placed in her crib to simply getting cozy, snuggling her bunny, and falling asleep all by herself. Now she sleeps through the night and takes great naps twice a day. The whole family is feeling really well rested.
I can't recommend Keriann enough. She developed a personalized plan for us and helped us deal with the curve balls -- an ear infection, an allergic reaction, and more -- that Abby threw at us along the way. She was very accessible and available as well as encouraging when we went through rough patches. Our "bad sleeper" is now an awesome sleeper and a very happy baby!"
~Christen, Mom to 6 month old
"Working with Keriann at Dream Factory Sleep Solutions was life changing. Our 8 month old was struggling with napping on his own at daycare and sleeping through the night. Being first time parents, we read all the books, tried everything and listened to everyone’s advice and nothing worked. We researched sleep consultants and after speaking with Keriann, we realized we were doing everything we could to get our baby to sleep but not getting him to put himself to sleep. Out of all of the consultants I liked, Keriann was the only one that offered the in person help through the night like I was looking for. We decided on the “Half-Night Package” because we wanted to make sure we were doing everything right the first time and most importantly to hold ourselves accountable and not give in. I’m so glad we went that route because she was able to adjust our plan and techniques immediately when she saw how our baby was responding. By the second night, our baby boy slept 12 hours straight! He is now consistently sleeping through the night, putting himself to sleep and napping on his own at daycare. I feel like WE have been sleep trained. We learned so much and now feel confident about how to navigate through future changes and obstacles of a busy schedule and life. I’m so happy we did this and have told all of my friends about this miracle."
~ Natalie, Mom to 8 month old
"They say admitting you have a problem is the first step and the day I called Keriann for a free consultation I think I was still in denial about how bad things had gotten with our almost 5-year-old and 2.5 year-old. My husband and I knew bedtime was an ugly time in our house, but we told ourselves the 2-hour bedtime routine, laying with the kids to fall asleep and playing musical beds every night was perfectly normal at this age. We were also mistakenly under the impression an earlier bedtime meant they would just wake up earlier. I had heard of those kids who fall asleep alone in their own beds and stayed there all night, but our kids just weren't wired that way, or so we thought.
Keriann immediately let me know our current state of exhaustion was not normal and there was hope, if we cared to put in the effort. We confessed all our sleep sins and followed the plan and now we have two rambunctious boys (one with sensory issues, to boot) who sleep soundly in their own beds. My husband and I have reclaimed our evenings, our bed and our sanity. I can't recommend Dream Factory enough. Of all the lessons, activities and toys we spend on our kids, this was, without question, the best money we've invested in our children. Quality sleep for our kids has been a game changer."
~ Michelle, Mom to 5 year old & 2.5 year old
"Our almost 3 month old son had gotten to the point where the only way he would nap was if he was in the baby carrier. We were also going through almost an hour or so every night of rocking and holding him until we could finally put him down to bed. Keriann gave some great tips on how to get him to sleep and fall asleep independently and now he is doing so much better! We (and my back) are so thankful for Keriann and all her help!"
~Allie, Mom to 3 month old
"We can't thank Keriann enough for all of her help and guidance with our 6 month old. Our little girl wasn't the easiest to sleep train and Keriann gave us confidence and support throughout the entire process. She was dedicated to helping us get some much needed sleep (for the whole family) and we are beyond grateful for that!"
~Allison, Mom to 6 month old
"As a first time mom, one of the reasons I chose to consult with Keriann was because I was tired of people telling me "you're never going to sleep." I'm so relieved and happy to have had my maternity consult. I feel so much better prepared on what to expect and what will help for the first few weeks of my baby's life. I highly recommend her for moms or soon to be moms that want to be in the know."
~Veronica, Expecting Mom
"We couldn't be happier with the progress Arezou has made in just two short weeks. She has gone from fitful sleep in our bed to sleeping through the night, 11+ hours, in her crib with no night wakings. Most importantly, she goes into her crib awake and puts herself to sleep!! All thanks to Keriann and her wonderful sleep plan for us to execute, we all are sleeping and so much happier. Thank you Keriann!"
~Samira, Mom to 10 month old
San Antonio, TX
"I went 15 months nursing with little to no sleep at night time. My son would wake every 2-3 hours and nursing was the only way to get him back to sleep. After our consultation I took her advice and we have been sleeping through the night for almost a week now. Such great small suggestions that made a world of difference."
~Jill, Mom to 15 month old
"Keriann changed our lives. My son was waking 5-6 times per night up until the time he was 6 months old, when we finally called Keriann. I was beside myself with fatigue, and worse, I didn’t feel I was doing a good job as a parent. I was a walking zombie and short with my family and close friends. Keriann helped us to put together a course of action that was tailored to our individual needs (separating nursing from sleeping) and it worked within days. Keriann was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. She stayed in contact with us through the process and tweaked the schedule as needed. I always felt comfortable speaking with Keriann and she was so supportive. Our son is now what I consider a champion sleeper . He goes down easily and sleeps through the night. As my husband and I tell everyone, 'Keriann was the best investment we’ve made in a long time.'”
~ Janice, Mom to 7 month old
"Thank you so much for all of the support and for giving us the tools and information we needed to help Savannah get the sleep she needs. We went from thinking that a three hour stretch at night was a gift to her sleeping through the night. We never could have dreamed (Literally. We never slept long enough to dream.) that we would go from random naps all day and waking up 6-8 times a night to two solid naps and sleeping through the night in a matter of days. You are seriously amazing!! Thank you!"
~ Sydney, Mom to 7 month old
"When I first reached out to Keriann, my 10 month old was waking up every hour in the middle of the night to nurse. I had tried putting him in his crib but he would wake up crying right away and would never sleep in it. I was barely making it through the day I was so exhausted and miserable. I'm happy to say that after working with Keriann, Grayson is now sleeping through the night in his own crib! My husband and I have our evenings together again and Grayson is finally getting the sleep he needs, and so am I! This was definitely the BEST decision /investment we could have made for our family and I am a firm believer in Keriann's sleep training program. She was very understanding and worked with us the entire time. Don't think twice about hiring her--you won't regret it!"
~Heidi, Mom to 1 year old
"When we found Keriann we were at a breaking point. Both of our kiddos (Griffin 2 and Madison 4) were up multiple times in the middle of the night and often times crawling into our bed without us even knowing. We wanted our children to appreciate sleep and what it can do for their bodies and mind and disposition.
After our 15 minute free consultation with Keriann we knew we found our solution and quickly put her plan in motion. She was thorough and truly listened to our challenges. We scheduled an at home visit followed by a review of her 3 week plan for both kids.
The first 4 nights were hard for us, changing up what you have been doing is challenging. But we stuck to the plan and started to see amazing results. Madison slept and continues to sleep in her room through the night. Griffin is sometimes up one time a night and goes immediately back to his room. Both kids are more confident happy and are loving going to bed at night. They love their new routine!
Through all this time, Keriann was supportive, emailed regularly and scheduled update calls with us throughout the process. Her approach was fantastic and she 100% was an advocate for our kids. She reminded us of the end game and we got there!
Trust a mom (even though you don't know me) this is a phenomenal thing to do for your family. We see this as the best investment we made for our kids and our relationship as a couple. You have to trust and work the program but the results are totally worth it.
Thank you, Keriann. Your professionalism, approach and care got us through a hard time for our family. We are delighted with the results!!"
~Erin & Brian, Parents to 4 year old & 2 year old
"We had a great experience working with Keriann! Our son was very challenging to sleep train and Keriann helped us to get him to sleep through the night! When we started sleep training, we had a lengthy call with Keriann to discuss the individualized plan that she put together for our son. She also provided a written summary of the plan, which was a great resource for us to have throughout. Even better was the two weeks of follow up support that Keriann provided when implementing the plan. It was extremely helpful to have her guidance and support throughout the process as she was able to help us make changes and corrections along the way. We would definitely recommend working with her!"
~Laura, Mom to 9 month old
"Working with Keriann was wonderful! With Keriann's help, our little man has learned how to put himself to sleep, and he, my husband, and myself are getting some much needed sleep! Keriann responds to questions very quickly, and is a great encourager throughout the process! The time we have with our little guy is so enjoyable now that he's rested and happy! I would definitely recommend Keriann to any tired families, or even families wanting to teach healthy sleep habits early. We started at 3 months, and I'm SO glad we did!"
~Audrey, Mom to 3 month old
“I had convinced myself that it was perfectly normal to wake up 1 - 2 times every night to feed my “hungry" 6 month-old, but when my baby boy woke me up FOUR times in one night, I anxiously (and exhaustedly...) reached out to Keriann the following morning. I was really torn… as much as I wanted more than 4 hours of collective sleep every night, I truly BELIEVED that my baby was hungry and needed me! I almost felt guilty & selfish for changing up his routine, and I had dreaded what I thought was the ”cry it out” method. Some of my best friends had recommended Keriann, but I had put off involving a sleep trainer for a long time. As it turns out, Keriann’s suggested & tailored approach for Pete was far more gentle & gradual than I had originally imagined. Pete was MORE than ready for these changes! After some moderate protesting on “Night #1” he very quickly caught on to his new normal. Within just days he was sleeping 12 hours through the night, and within a few weeks his naps were more predicable and consistent than ever. What I resisted for so long has ultimately made me a better and happier mother, and my son more well-rested and acclimated than ever. Thank you Keriann! My only regret is not reaching out to you sooner!”
~Leigh, Mom to 7 month old
"Thank You for all of your kindness and support that you provided during our session. I know we were challenging as Charlie has her mother's stubbornness, but we made it through to the other side. We are a new family these days! Charlie is getting the sleep she needs. And that is what matters most. Even her teachers at school noticed how well she is developing these days. Not only did you provide us a service, you provided us the tools to make us better parents, now that we are all sleeping!"
~Megan, Mom to 1 year old
"Keriann has been so helpful! We needed help training our 4 month old how to sleep for naps. We have implemented what she suggested and have seen great results. We are so thankful!"
~Grace, Mom to 4 month old
"I have laughed at friends that said they were prepared for their baby because they don't sleep very much anyway so 'how hard could it be'. Having been there I can say there is no way to prepare for the sleep deprivation that comes with a baby. You end up doing anything and everything to get that child to be comfortable and sleep all the while sacrificing your comfort, sleep, showers, and the biggest thing, your sanity.
My husband and I were at the end of our rope not knowing what to do. A friend recommended Keriann and I was ready to go from the moment of the recommendation, my husband...not so much. He knew I wasn't getting much sleep but I think he underestimated how little I was actually getting. It actually took a friend of his that had done a similar process to convince him. Asking for help is never easy.
To make matters worse, we are both stubborn people and even in 4 short months, we could see that Ryan was following in our path so we were prepared for 10 days of horrible in order to get a lifetime of amazing. Our sweet kiddo surprised us all. It took one night to get nights under control - 2 days in and we were looking at 12 hours...in a row. No night feedings, no pacifier, just sleep. Naps were harder, however he got it in less than a month. I feel like I am able to be the mother Ryan deserves because now I'm getting restorative sleep as well. I have a feeling that he's going to be a handful of crazy like his mama, so I need to be rested and ready."
~Melissa, Mom to 4 month old
Little Elm, TX
"Working with Keriann has been amazing! With three kids, it can be really tough when it comes to sleep. My youngest, like all newborns, was a great sleeper until he hit 3 months old. I created bad habits of nursing and rocking him to sleep, which required a lot of my time, which meant leaving my other kids to fend for themselves while I tried to get Samuel to sleep and stay asleep. After working with Keriann for just a few days there was a huge difference in the time it took for Samuel to go to sleep and the length of time he was sleeping. Samuel is now putting himself to sleep for naps and bedtime, takes three solid naps and has slept through the night!!! I am so grateful to Keriann for providing me the tools to teach Samuel how to get better sleep! I now am able to spend more time with my big kids and Samuel is getting the rest he needs!"
~Tracy, Mom to 3 month old
San Antonio, TX
"I was skeptical, hopeful, and desperate when I reached out to Keriann for our 10 month old baby Brayden. He was waking up several times a night, ended up sleeping in our bed at some point in the night, and we rocked him to sleep before all naps and before bed. I own my own business and my husband has a very demanding job so lack of sleep just wasn’t working for us anymore. I was also dealing with postpartum depression and the exhaustion I felt was making everything worse. I knew it was time to ask for help for the health and wellbeing of my baby, my marriage, and my emotional and physical health.
I was soooo nervous b/c I thought my baby was going to cry the entire night with sleep training and hate me forever (sounds dramatic but that is honestly how I felt). I was terrified he was going to think I wasn’t there for him. I was having horrible anxiety the week before we started and I wanted to quit. THANK GOD I did not! I was shocked when Brayden only fussed for 45 minutes the first night then 15 min the next night! She also does a more gentle approach compared to traditional cry it out method. I liked being able to be in the room with him in the beginning so he didn’t feel alone. Of course he cried a few nights and that was hard but within a few days, Brayden was sleeping 12 hours at night without waking up!! I thought it was going to take weeks instead of just a few days! Especially bc our baby was already 10 months old! This was the best money we have ever spent!! Keriann also worked with us to get Brayden 2 good naps during the day at scheduled times. No more guessing and we were able to schedule our lives again! Yay!
I feel Keriann was a gift and blessing from God! She was incredibly patient and calm with us and answered all of our questions. It was so helpful to learn WHY it was important for our baby to sleep well and what my husband and I were doing to interfere with his sleep (ok ok, it was mainly ME). I honestly could not be happier with Brayden’s success with sleep training. All we did was listen to exactly what she told us to do and it worked! I got out of my own way and trusted the process (wasn’t easy for a control freak like me!). Brayden is so much more energetic and wakes up in the morning happy instead of grumpy. Tonight he reached out to his crib instead of wanting to read his second book! He was tired and wanted to go to sleep! I feel beyond blessed and happy with Brayden’s results! Thank you Keriann!!"
~Kala, Mom to 10 month old
"We were a bit apprehensive to hire a sleep consultant to help us with our 8 month old daughter. I kept thinking we should be able to figure this out. However, after a few really tough nights we decided something had to change. Keriann helped us come up with our sleep goals for Abby and then developed a plan with step by step instructions to help us reach those goals. It was really helpful for us to have a game plan instead of feeling like we were winging it. Abby did amazing and began sleeping through the night on night one. She is now able to fall asleep independently for naps and bedtime with little fussing at all. We are so grateful for Keriann's support and guidance."
~Brian and Kayla, Parents to 8 month old
"Keriann was a joy to work with and we never expected so much progress so soon. We went from 4 to 5 wakings a night with minimal naps, to twelve hours at night and two great naps within days of working with her. She's kind, patient, and so easy to work with. We highly recommend her and her sleep program!"
~Nik, Mom to 11 month old
"Thanks so much for all your help. Your services were a wonderful blessing to our family."
~Ian, Dad to 3 year old
Sneads Ferry, NC
"Keriann's guidance was exactly what we needed to get our son's sleeping back on track. We thought we tried everything after transitioning our son to his "big boy" bed didn't go as planned. After an extremely rough 5 months, we pulled the plug and contacted Keriann. She was great! We started a plan that she designed specifically for us and now everyone looks forward to bedtime instead of dreading it. Highly recommend Keriann and worth every penny!"
~Allison, Mom to 2.5 year old
"A desperate middle of the night feeding lead me to Keriann. I hadn't gotten a consistent 5 hours of sleep in almost 4 months. Logan only slept a few hours at a time at night and wouldn't sleep longer than 30 minutes for naps. I felt myself hitting rock bottom and Keriann was the hand that pulled me out of the trenches. The plan she created for our family had Logan sleeping through the night and taking longer naps within the first few days! She never asked us to do anything we weren't comfortable with and was with us every step of the way. By the end of our time together we felt confident that we had the tools to continue to be consistent with his schedule on our own! Keriann was a Godsend to our family and we can't recommend her services enough!"
~Krista, Mom to 5 month old
North Richland Hills, TX
"Our 6 month old daughter was waking every 2-3 hours throughout the night and bedtime was a constant struggle. We finally decided to reach out to Keriann, and oh my gosh, we are beyond glad that we did. Within two nights of the new sleep plan, our daughter was self soothing and sleeping 12 hours a night! With her guidance and detailed plan, we felt so confident in getting our daughter on the right sleep track. I cannot recommend Dream Factory Sleep Solutions enough!"
~Michele, Mom to 6 month old
"My first child was a great sleeper and was so flexible and easy going. I had read several books and thought I had this sleep thing figured out. When my second came along, I couldn't get her to take naps unless she was moving (swing, car seat). She was super sensitive and would protest naps. Getting a sleep consultant seemed extreme but I was desperate for a solution. Keriann with Dream Factory Sleep Solutions held my hand all the way through. She answered every question and was extremely patient with me. She helped devise a plan that made sense and it was such a burden lifted off of my shoulders. When my newborn would protest naps I now had the motivation to reach my goal. It helps me get through any crying fits by being level-headed and having a plan. I would recommend this program to any new moms! This program would also make a great baby gift!"

"Keriann has been absolutely amazing! She has helped us with our almost 6 month old. My husband and I were questioning ourselves and what we were doing soon after starting a sleep program. After speaking with Keriann, we had the motivation, support, and reassurance that we needed and our little guy is doing great now. She answered questions we had other then just sleep questions. I truly feel that if we wouldn't have had her help, we wouldn't be where we are today with our son's sleeping. Highly recommend talking to Keriann if you are having any problems at all."

"Our little one woke every single hour at night from the time he went to bed until the time we started our next day. We struggled to survive on no sleep for 8 months. We kept thinking things would get better and he would learn how to switch to the next sleep cycle but he never did. It was very rough for us. When we called Keriann I was worried that she may not be able to help us. My fears were he would be the worst case and we would waste our money. We seriously can not thank Keriann enough!! Our son now sleeps 11 hours at night and easily takes two naps during the day. He is able to put himself to sleep on his own! No more props! Keriann was extremely responsive and really eased my worries throughout the whole process. The only thing I would change is that we made the call sooner!"

"Initially I was a little reluctant to start sleep training because I felt it was something we should be able to handle ourselves. Now, after working with Keriann, I enjoy story time and the relaxing approach to bedtime without the overhanging anxiety of how many tears and how long its going to take this time. It’s been a relief that Emma has learned how to put herself to sleep without us holding her."

"I can't thank you enough for your dedication and working with us through some very tough nights! I think we have the knowledge and confidence to move forward and proceed with some very good sleep habits for Eli, he has thrived so much in these last few weeks it's amazing and I know now it is because he is truly resting! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I didn't see any reason why we couldn't figure out this whole schedule and sleep training thing ourselves. Why pay money for something that should come naturally, right? Wrong. Struggling with my son's particular quirks, our family's tight schedule (both of us work) and being first time parents was just too much for my wife and I to handle on our own. We should have hired Keriann sooner, because after just a few days we saw significant improvement in our son's sleeping habits and by the final night we were getting the best sleep we've had in 7 months!"

"I cannot thank you enough for your support during this transition with Isabella. It’s hard to believe that Isabella was in our bed for almost 3 years relying on breastfeeding to put her to sleep and in a matter of a day she was sleeping in her own bed and own room. What a miracle. I am so thankful to have received the “tools” to continue sleep training. Your plan was so easy to follow and your additional guidance made a world of difference. It was such a pleasure to work with you and I sincerely appreciate your help."

"With a 6-month old, a 26-month old, a full time job, and a household to run, I was finding myself slipping deeper and deeper into what felt like quick sand. I was really struggling to handle it all because I was not sleeping well. My little guy was up 2-3 times a night between 7pm and 7am and it was clear that it was taking a toll on me. I looked tired, I was moody, I was blue. Keriann was the medicine that made me smile and say "ahhhhhhhh, I feel great!" From our first call, I felt hopeful she would help me undo bad habits I was unknowingly doing with Dylan's bedtime. She developed a plan based off my goals, desires, and schedule and explained how to follow it thoroughly. I know not every baby is the same; but by our second night, we had a perfect well rested evening for everyone. She saved my sanity and helped me feel like I was getting myself out of the quick sand. I would highly recommend that moms consider sleep consultants - particularly Keriann. After all, it takes a village. She was a delight, professional, and proactive in helping us along our path."

"The custom sleep training plan you created for Kyle and walked us through has made such a positive difference in our family! I can now function better as a mom now that we are sleeping through the night and Kyle is a happy baby now that he has a consistent schedule. It's so amazing that we are able to put him in bed wide awake and he puts himself to sleep with no fussing at all. If he wakes during the night, we usually would never know, and for the times that he does fuss, he puts himself back to sleep within 5 minutes. The length of his naps have increased from about 30-40 minutes each to 1.5-2 hours each. It's incredible to feel confident about his sleep schedule and now it doesn't take forever to get him to fall asleep like it used to before we began!"

"After months of sleepless days and nights with our son, my husband and I decided to seek the help of a sleep consultant. Hudson is now sleeping 10-12 hours a night and taking naps during the day. He wakes up happy, smiling, and feeling rested, and so do my husband and I! Keriann was able to give us one on one support throughout the process, providing us with the tools and confidence to get through the tough times. Her coaching and support were so encouraging, and she really helped us stay the course so that Hudson could finally get the sleep I always knew he needed and wanted! Hudson is so much happier and truly thriving now, we only wish that we had found Keriann sooner. I recommend Keriann to anyone who is having the same problem with complete confidence that she can help. Her services are invaluable!"
