"Best money EVER SPENT: Sleep training from the amazing Marsha Podd. She has taught me SO much about baby and toddler sleep...I could almost teach a class! LOL Stella was really off with her sleeping schedule since her tonsils were taken out. In one nap, she was back on schedule and going to sleep by herself just fine! The steps she has taught me I will use all of Stella's life, and it has given me so much strength!"

"I was at the talk Marsha gave to the Napa mom's group in February. We hadn't had a full night sleep since our son was born.  I implemented Marsha's advice immediately and from the next night on we immediately had success. We enjoyed uninterrupted sleep and peaceful nights for several months thanks to her tips."





"Christopher smiles and waves bye-bye to me now when I put him down for a nap. My day-care center staff say his play is more friendly and he is happier."

"I saw immediate results after my consultation with Marsha. Jeremy (2 years old) went down for his nap without a fuss.
