Stories of Transformation
Every human has a basic need for sleep and your baby is no different. Giving your baby the tools, the reassurance, and the environment to become an independent sleeper is truly one of the best gifts you can give your child.

We would be at a total loss without Mamie as far as sleeping goes. She has been a God-send and I recommend her to friends with new babies all the time. My one big thing that I say is “Don’t wait to call her! Call her NOW and get going because the road will be easier the sooner you start.
As a first-time mom, everything with an infant can be challenging and you don’t really know what is “right.” I had a lot of help from friends regarding what to do with my new little girl, but sleeping through the night and napping during the day seemed to be the issue that we just couldn’t figure out. I’d read a bunch of “recommended” books and gotten some help from them, but the one issue I had with the books is they never could answer my specific questions. I found myself reading and re-reading chapters looking for answers to specific questions and only coming back frustrated.
A friend had recommended Mamie to us and I scoffed thinking, “we don’t need that and can’t afford that.” But it soon became apparent that we did need her help, and now looking back I wish we had started working with Mamie months before we did! And as far as the expense, I have often said that Mamie is getting the raw end of the deal. Since we live in Tucson, we did our consultation via Skype. I was immediately at ease with her, as was my husband, who was kind of a skeptic before we talked to her. I was the one reading the books and directing him in what to do, but because he was part of the conversation with Mamie, he knew what the plan was and became much more active in working on our baby girl’s sleeping. We spent at least a few hours on Skype explaining our schedule, issues, what we had tried, etc. and listening to what Mamie had to say. Then, we made a few changes and prayed. Within a week, our daughter was sleeping better and we were as well.
I talked to Mamie everyday for awhile to follow-up, get new ideas and positive reinforcement that we were doing ok. Those phone calls made me feel SO much better, because I was hearing that we were doing things right and our daughter would get it. The best part of the consultation package is the follow-up which is included and never costs another cent. It was so helpful to think, “I just have one question to ask” and not have to worry about what kind of fee that would incur because we were out of the initial time frame or whatever.
Mamie communicates with us over email, text and phone. Now we are at a point where we may not talk for days or even a week or two at a time, but I know I can call or text her with any questions I have. We started running into issues again, and many times when I text her in the middle of the night, she’ll still get back to me rather quickly. Her knowledge isn’t only limited to baby sleep, she knows all kinds of tricks to deal with teething, illness, etc. when it comes to babies. And she has the experience to back up the knowledge.
We just transitioned our daughter from a 3 hour schedule to a 3.5 hour schedule, and the change in her sleeping (both during the day and at night) is amazing. In the past, she’s been a happy girl, until you want her to go to sleep. But with the right schedule, she is happy to go to sleep for an hour or two, and wake up ready to eat and play. We would be at a total loss without Mamie as far as sleeping goes. She has been a God-send and I recommend her to friends with new babies all the time. My one big thing that I say is “Don’t wait to call her! Call her NOW and get going because the road will be easier the sooner you start.” Mamie also shares in our victories and it is nice to know we are making progress, and be able to celebrate that progress with someone outside our family.
She is a great lady and so easy to talk to. I call her my friend and not just our sleep coach. She truly is the “Baby Whisperer.”
The Rowe Family
We personally interviewed 7 different night nannies/sleep consultants before making a final decision. Hiring Mamie Krueger to perform sleep training services was some of the best money we have ever spent, on anything, ever.
There are three types of people in this world: those who make mistakes and repeat them, those who learn from their mistakes and do not repeat them, and those who learn from the mistakes of others thereby avoiding mistakes in the first place. As new parents we decided to minimize the mistake making by taking classes, reading books, collecting questions which we would then pose to experienced friends and family, and by hiring a night nanny and sleep training expert. We were new parents and rather than figuring everything out on our own or asking friends and family after having a problem or making a mistake, we felt it was much smarter to have an expert present to give us the best practices at the outset and prevent any bad habits from developing.
What is the value of a good night’s sleep? What is the cost of a bad night’s sleep or prolonged sleeplessness? Many of our relatives and older friends recalled the weeks or even years of broken sleep, lost income, and stress stress STRESS which resulted from a child who wouldn’t sleep through the night.
No thanks. Let’s avoid that.
We personally interviewed 7 different night nannies/sleep consultants before making a final decision. Hiring Mamie Krueger to perform sleep training services was some of the best money we have ever spent, on anything, ever. Seriously. Having Mamie in our home for a short period immediately after our daughter was born was of tremendous help since Jon had to go back to work. That alone was an excellent value, but more importantly she put us on the right track to sleep train our daughter, and made herself available to answer questions long after she completed her contact term, at no extra charge, whenever we hit a bump in the road. Her services went well beyond caring for our newborn daughter during the overnight hours. Mamie trained us. She gave us the know-how so that we were able to complete the sleep training that she started, and by 9 weeks of age our daughter was sleeping from 7 pm to 7am the vast majority of nights. She falls asleep around 7pm, sleeps peacefully through the night, and wakes up happy the next morning at 7am. It’s a beautiful thing.
Mamie Krueger is an honest, trustworthy woman who is easy to get along with, while still being focused and diligent. Her skills and tutelage have had an enormously beneficial impact on our family life, livelihood and marital happiness. Hiring Mamie Krueger was a very wise investment. We strongly recommend Mamie Krueger.

I was amazed that within a week, both babies were sleeping 12 hours a night and taking great naps during the day. I honestly never thought it was possible and Mamie made it happen in just a few days.
Mamie was an absolute blessing to our family! Our 4 month old boy/girl twins had gone from sleeping almost completely through the night, to all of a sudden up every 2 hours and on no nap schedule whatsoever during the day. I had no idea what to do to fix the problem, but knew I couldn’t last this sleep deprived for long. Living in Texas, I tried to find someone local, but was so desperate I decided to hire Mamie. Knowing she was miles away and would never meet my babies or me face to face, it was a huge risk that thankfully turned into the greatest reward. Mamie and I chatted over the phone numerous times a day as she helped me get the twins on a good nap schedule, which in turn helped them learn to sleep through the night. I was amazed that within a week, both babies were sleeping 12 hours a night and taking great naps during the day. I honestly never thought it was possible and Mamie made it happen in just a few days. Life was immediately pleasant again and it has been this way ever since. Mamie was readily available to talk to, extremely friendly and filled with helpful advice and knowledge. She has continued to check in on our family and I know she is available to help if any new sleep issue were to arise in the future. We would highly recommend using Mamie if you are out of state, as the distance did not seem to deter her ability to help us at all. She was fantastic and we are forever thankful she stepped in at such a time of need.
Within three days of implementing Mamie’s plan, my daughter was sleeping 10-12 solid hours every night. And within a week naps were settled and she was consistently napping longer than 45 minutes for the first time in her life!
When I contacted Mamie my daughter was 13 months old and was getting up three times during the night, which was as often as she did when she was a newborn. We either had to spend 20 minutes rocking her back to sleep or bring her to our bed. Needless to say we were desperate for more sleep.
Within three days of implementing Mamie’s plan, my daughter was sleeping 10-12 solid hours every night. And within a week naps were settled and she was consistently napping longer than 45 minutes for the first time in her life! At times it was tough, but Mamie was always there for me, even going so far as to let me know when she was going to the gym and wouldn’t be available on her phone for an hour. I had read all the books, but the problem for us was that when something was happening that was different from the books we didn’t know what to do and would just give up. Every baby is different and every family is different, so it’s incredibly important to have someone who you can talk to throughout the process. The sleep training we did with Mamie’s help was absolutely priceless. My little one was such a happier baby afterwards! We weren’t the only ones not getting enough sleep. The whole household is now a much healthier and happier place.
We truly viewed our hiring Mamie as an investment in getting our parenting off to the right start, and in having happy, healthy babies.
We hired Mamie this past summer, while our boy-girl twins were just a few weeks old. We were about to move from Los Angeles to Scottsdale and we needed a new night infant care specialist.
After reviewing her qualifications, and experiencing her professionalism and dedication to her profession, we knew she was the one for us—especially to help with the nights, when we’d be most tired and confused what to do.
The night we arrived from our move, we were exhausted and overwhelmed as new parents, but we weren’t anxious about knowing what to do with our babies since we had Mamie to help us navigate the process. Best of all, we didn’t realize our babies even could be sleeping through the night within a few months.
We truly viewed our hiring Mamie as an investment in getting our parenting off to the right start, and in having happy, healthy babies. There’s also simply no other way we could have gotten through this time, especially while also settling into a new home, and with one baby having troublesome reflux issues.
Mamie is wonderful, and worth every dollar We highly recommend her to anyone wanting to hire knowledgeable and loving help for their newborns… and who wants to give the whole family the gift of sleep
Alexandria Brown & Brett Flanigan
He was sleeping great very soon after he got home and is now 7 months old and sleeps well through the entire night and has been since he was 3 months old.
We had Mamie help us with the sleep training of our second baby and it was extremely helpful and we highly recommend her. Our first child had trouble sleeping and for his first two years we were basically up all night most nights. He did not want to go to bed and had trouble falling asleep and sleeping thru the night. When we had our second child we hired Mamie, she had helped a friend of ours with their daughter and came highly recommended. She started with us the day our second child came home from the hospital. He was sleeping great very soon after he got home and is now 7 months old and sleeps well through the entire night and has been since he was 3 months old. We recommend Mamie Krueger without hesitation.
All the best,
Our son slept SIX hours that first night! Needless to say, by the time he was 2 months old he was sleeping 8 to 10 hours per night and taking adequate naps through the day.
My son was born May 23rd, 2012. This is my first child and I wasn’t very prepared for what was about to happen… From the moment I brought him home from the hospital until he was 5 weeks old (when I met Mamie) he would only sleep 2 hours at a time and be up for 5 to 6 hours in a very cranky mood. My husband and I were at our wits end until we met Mamie (the lifesaver!). Mamie was so pleasant, empathetic, and informative. The first thing she did was to instruct us on proper swaddling techniques (preventing the newborn startle reflex). In addition, she instructed us on how to make sure he was getting enough daytime calories while maintaining an appropriate routine for his age. The first night following these 2 steps he showed an immense improvement. Our son slept SIX hours that first night! Needless to say, by the time he was 2 months old he was sleeping 8 to 10 hours per night and taking adequate naps through the day. He is now 5 months old and is consistent in going down at 7PM and waking up at 630AM every day. My husband and I have a completely different baby… this baby is happy, energetic, and most importantly…rested. Everybody asks me how we got him to get on such an amazing schedule. I always tell them one word: MAMIE!

Our daughter was sleeping 8-10 hours at night by 6 weeks old and 12 hours a night by 8 weeks old. She was on a great nap schedule and able to fall asleep on her own.
When having our 2nd child I knew it would be hard, but I didn’t realize how much more I would need my sleep in order to keep up with my busy 3 year old during the day. My husband and I did some research and we were referred to Mamie for some night time help. I assumed we would just use her for a week, but when we saw the benefit of the training that Mamie did we ended up keeping her for 5 weeks! Right away Mamie put our 2 week old on a routine and within 1 day she was sleeping 5-6 hour stretches at night. I couldn’t believe how well the routine worked. Mamie would arrive in the evening and go over all of our questions from the day and then leave us to our sleep. Mamie is extremely knowledgable, comforting, and it was so great to have her in our home. Our daughter was sleeping 8-10 hours at night by 6 weeks old and 12 hours a night by 8 weeks old. She was on a great nap schedule and able to fall asleep on her own. The knowledge and the help that Mamie gave us was with out a doubt the best investment we could have made. We were happy parents during the day and our daughter was a happy baby . I have referred Mamie to many friends who are thrilled after using her. I would refer her to anyone I know!
Thank-you Mamie for the gift of Sleep!

I went back to work after 12 weeks of maternity leave and suffered for MONTHS due to being sleep deprived. My husband and I would take turns getting up at night to comfort our son and attempted the Cry-It Out method without success on two different occasions.
My name is Marcie Herzog and my husband, Joe, and I have 2 children. We have a 4-year old daughter and (now) a 13-month old son. When our son, Von, was 11 months old we contacted Mamie Krueger for help getting our little man to sleep through the night.
I went back to work after 12 weeks of maternity leave and suffered for MONTHS due to being sleep deprived. My husband and I would take turns getting up at night to comfort our son and attempted the Cry-It Out method without success on two different occasions. Finally we realized that we needed help. I only wish I would have realized that simple conclusion MUCH earlier!
My first impression after talking to Mamie was incredible! I had already interviewed two other sleep coaches and I could tell she was about truly helping us and not about taking our money in the easiest and quickest way possible. In fact, she led me to the option that was not the most lucrative for her. The simple suggestions she provided over the phone were also in line with what my pediatrician had stated so I felt very comfortable with her knowledge and experience.
After discussing my impression with my husband, we hired Mamie and scheduled her to meet our family. Mamie was very flexible with her schedule to come to our home and within an hour and a half of her visit we had a clear plan of what we needed to do. She left, and my husband and I embarked on our journey to get our son to sleep. Within 2 nights he slept THROUGH THE NIGHT! I was in constant contact with Mamie with various questions and she always responded so quickly.
I have continued to utilize Mamie’s expertise to help my son sleep at daycare, to wean him off bottles and to take better naps! She has been a miracle worker for our family and we are all so much happier now that we are well rested!
I highly recommend her and would welcome talking to anyone with more specific questions.
Mamie was our gift from God. When she came into our life the twins were 6 weeks old. My husband and I had long run out of adrenaline and were burnt out.
My husband and I were recently blessed with twins (boy/girl). They are currently 6 months old and we also have a four year old (girl) toddler. Mamie was our gift from God. When she came into our life the twins were 6 weeks old. My husband and I had long run out of adrenaline and were burnt out. They were not on any kind of schedule and to make matters worse, they were not even on the same schedule. We literally would go some nights without sleep. This was not only wearing on us but our four year old as well. The first night Mamie came over she had them sleeping in their cribs. It was such a relief to not have to worry about our babies at night and get some much needed rest.
She is very informative and is always there to answer questions. She would let us know how the babies were doing and kept a great nightly log with details about how they did. Mamie finished with our family over a month ago but still keeps in contact and always replies to any questions I still have.
At 8 weeks old the babies contracted RSV. The boy twin was hit pretty hard and needed breathing treatments through the night. Mamie never hesitated, was happy to do it and administered them for us as needed. Our son was also diagnosed with milk protein intolerance. During the trying times of figuring out what was wrong with him, Mamie gave us advice and helped us work through it. Because of her sleep training, once he switched to his new formula he was sleeping through the night. He is now one happy baby boy!
I am forever grateful that my twins are now on a great schedule, sleep through the night, and most importantly- are on the SAME schedule. I actually have time to myself during the day!
It was very hard for me to part with Mamie but it makes me happy to know that other families will be blessed with her kindness, knowledge and loving ways. We are forever grateful to have met her and to have had her as part of our family for 10 weeks.
Hiring Mamie was the best decision we made regarding the health and well being of our family. We recommend her services to all new parents especially if they feel overwhelmed and in need of help that works.
Karissa and I want to take a moment to write you a letter expressing our gratitude for your exceptional services in helping our daughter and us sleep peacefully. Prior to hiring you, we struggled with when our daughter should sleep and eat. She had us on her schedule, which was irregular at best. During our first consultation with you, you spent as much time as we needed answering our questions and putting our minds at ease. Your schedule has worked flawlessly and we now have a very happy and content baby. Furthermore, it has been a huge benefit having the ability to ask you questions when something arises with our daughter such as new sleeping habits, changing her feeding schedule, getting her comfortable in her crib, etc. Having someone with your extensive baby experience at the tip of our fingertips is invaluable.
Hiring Mamie was the best decision we made regarding the health and well being of our family. We recommend her services to all new parents especially if they feel overwhelmed and in need of help that works.
