"Our family was fortunate enough to have Katie Coleman work in our home as a Newborn Care Specialist. We were both first time parents, and we had limited experience caring for children prior to the birth of our first daughter.
Katie started as an NCS immediately when we brought our daughter, Birdie, home from the hospital. Katie was extremely warm, welcoming, and obviously caring for our daughter. Her demeanor was very calm and soothing, and we knew our newborn was in perfect hands every night. Katie was always very attentive to Birdie. She clearly communicated to us in the morning how Birdie did overnight. She was very helpful in her suggestions to us on how to start each particular day with Birdie (i.e. regarding timing of next feed, or naptime/playtime). She also made insightful suggestions to us about formula, feeding, and daytime schedules, all of which really made our days much easier and successful with our newborn!
Katie was also always upbeat and positive. Even after a few challenging nights with Birdie, she was still so pleasant in the morning, and took time to help problem solve ways to improve our upcoming day with Birdie. She was clearly very experienced, and her insights really made a difference. She was also flexible with scheduling, and always communicated promptly and effectively.
We would both give our highest recommendation to any family looking to hire Katie Coleman as a Newborn Care Specialist. We (and Birdie) looked forward to her coming to our home each and every night. We felt completely reassured that Birdie would be in perfect hands overnight. And one additional bonus, Katie was fantastic with dogs! We have two young, energetic yellow labs, and they would be so excited to see Katie every night and every morning. Katie always made sure to give them attention too, which they really appreciated.
Again, we would certainly give Katie our highest recommendation!"
"Katie sets the professional standard for Newborn Care Specialists. She is experienced, educated, connected and reliable. Katie will give you her best advice, and not just what you want to hear. She will never compromise on safety, and we trusted her right away! Her advice does not end at sleep training, she will share her extensive expertise with all kinds of tips and suggestions, if you want or need it. Katie is respectful of privacy and will always go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. But most important, Katie always treated our baby like the individual that he is, making sure not to push him too fast. She really cared about him and our family. Months later she still checks in with us. They say “it takes a village”...but who has one of those? If you can cobble one together that includes Katie, consider yourself a very lucky family."

“After welcoming quintuplets into our home, Katie made our transition from two to seven kids so much easier. It’s rare to find someone with so much experience with multiples. She was so great to our entire family, and provided us with valuable training every time she came by to help care for the quints. I wish we could have worked with her longer, but we had to head home to southern Utah after our stay in Arizona.”
"When my clients had an almost 4-month-old son waking upwards of 10 times a night and inconsistent naps typically only lasting 20 mins at most I reached out to some colleagues for recommendations and Katie was the first on everyone’s list. She was easy to get ahold of and coordinate with my clients’ schedule and flexible to work around what my clients needed. Katie came in completely prepared with a plan and written material to keep parents and staff on the same path. She was able to accommodate the needs of the baby while also supporting the emotions of the parents. It is like night and day now, parents are happy and staff are happy and best of all kiddo giggles and smiles when put to bed and sleeps straight through the night 12 hours plus some great restorative naps every day. Now that Katie brought predictability into our lives, we’ve been able to get out of the house more as well as travel without any missteps in sleep. I am so grateful for Katie’s support through this whole process and can’t wait until I can recommend her to more friends and clients."
“Katie was so kind and truly cared about my son’s sleep and us. She was extremely supportive and very educated. She comforted me when I needed it and all of her advice worked within 2 days for my 18 month old toddler. Thank you Katie for your love and support. Thank you again for everything.”
"She was reliable, experienced, knowledge, and beyond helpful, and a life changer. I can honestly say it was the best money I’ve ever spent, and if I had to do it again I would in a heartbeat. Hindsight, really is 20/20, and if I only knew how life altering this process would be I would have saved myself a lot of grief. Since words cannot say how truly grateful we are to Katie, I would happily be willing to discuss further if interested. We’ve already been recommending her to friends and family!”
"After the first couple of nights, our son was sleeping 11-12 hours and has ever since! AMAZING! We could not believe it and could not be more thankful for Katie and Baby Brilliance. Now we are all getting the rest we need and that makes for a much happier and healthier household.”
"Katie Coleman worked for us as a Newborn Care Specialist and was so helpful. Our son was a preemie and with that came a lot of challenges at night. She was caring and knowledgeable about them and provided lots of good advice. I particularly liked when I would wake up and find him sleeping on her after he had been having a rough night. She wasn’t going to let him be uncomfortable alone, rather would provide the care I would as his mother. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to help you during the nights when you have a newborn. She can work with you on solutions for issues and be a person you can count on when you need to give yourself a little self care.”
"When our 17 month old son went through a sleep regression, we were referred to Katie. We hired her for 5 nights to get him back on track after months of 2-3 nightly wake ups. Katie had him sleep trained in just 3 nights! Since then, he continues to sleep 12 hours a night. Katie also helped us with optimizing our evening routine and feedings which ensured the best chance of success. Katie was always on time and extremely professional! We are so grateful to her and I would highly recommend her for any job.”
