Thank you Mommy’s Dream Team for providing our family with excellent in-home infant First Aid and CPR training! What a fantastic service you offer for busy new parents and grandparents, all in the comfort of your own home. Candice was extremely knowledgeable and thorough, while being flexible to our needs. We’ve had the pleasure of interacting with several ladies in this company—from the night nanny service to the babysitting board—and now CPR training. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. So glad we found you!
Rachel has been heaven sent for my family. We had a few health scares with our baby the first couple of months. The nights Rachel wasn't at our house I couldn't sleep. It was so nice to get a break of solid sleep so I could be a better mom to the baby and my toddler.
I don't even know where to begin except with a great big thank you. Our experience with Mommy's Dream Team was amazing! After 11 months months of no sleep, I realized something had to change. At 3am while nursing my son to sleep for the 3rd time that night I began searching the internet for help with sleep. I came across a couple internet based companies that would do sleep consulting, but I was afraid that would not work for our family. After a friend from Chicago confessed she used a night nanny, I began searching for a service in my area. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across MDT.
From the moment I made contact with MDT, I felt I had made the right call. They were supportive, patient and compassionate. They listened as I explained what was happening and immediately put my mind at ease. Over the phone they were able to pin point some strategies to use until I was able to make my appointment. Our first night with our night nanny allowed her to see what our son was doing and also to help us come up with a reasonable schedule to follow. Just allowing us to sleep through the night did wonders for our family and knowing our son was in good hands made the process even easier. We were given several suggestions to create a good sleep environment for our son and a reasonable routine that we could stick to.
And I was amazed that after a week there were huge changes in our son's sleep patterns. Through out the first week we continued to receive support and advice from MDT. I think this really made a difference and within a month our son went from sleeping maybe 3 or 4 hours at a time to 10-12 hours a night! We also saw huge improvements in our son's nap schedule. We were amazed how much better our whole family felt as our son began getting the right amount of good sleep. I can't say enough how amazing MDT was for our family. We didn't realize the toll the sleepless nights were taking on not only me, but also our older daughter and my husband. Thank you for putting our family back together so we can enjoy our son and take back our lives. I only wish I had known about them sooner.
Thank you Mommy's Dream Team!!!

Rachel night nursed for us with both of our babies. She was so professional, prompt, reliable, dependable, and knowledgeable. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with her. She was always at ease with our children as babies and so sweet to my two year old son when he had a baby sister to contend with. She allowed me to make the most of my time when she was there. Not only did she take care of our babies, she also took care of little things around the house that make such a difference when you are short on time and sleep! She was a lifesaver. Always ready and willing and up to any task that would give me peace of mind. She brought sanity and rest to our house in what could have been a chaotic time! What a blessing! Thank you!
One of the greatest gifts life has to offer is arriving home with a newborn baby. However, despite all the possible preparations one can make, the first few weeks at home with a new baby is an extremely challenging and stressful experience.
Contacting Rachel and her Mommy’s Dream Team was the best thing that happened for us!
Extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and sincere, Rachel and her team were available not only to come to our home and help, but they were also always available to answer the multitude of questions that naturally arise when you bring a newborn home. This alone relieved a colossal amount of stress!
Their calm, positive and sincere attitudes guided us through our transition to new parents in a way that I don’t think any one else could have. Because of Rachel and her Mommy’s Dream Team, we were able to care for our newborn baby well rested and ready to tend to our baby’s needs. Extremely flexible, they have been available on short notice, stayed as required according to our schedule, and not only that they took care of the bottles and baby clothes while caring for our newborn baby!
The entire team has such a natural presence and warmth while caring for our baby that they immediately became a part of our family!

Janice is like family. We were very nervous about having someone else care for our Dean and Rosie born at 30 weeks and spending almost 2 months in the NICU. Janice was very sincere and made me feel very comfortable with her abilities to care for them. I would have more children just so she could come stay with us more. 🙂 Maybe not but she is missed by us, our twins and the older boys which she cared for some mornings. The older boys thought she lived with us. They'd always say "Ms. Janice is home!" Any family will be very lucky to have Janice in their home and care for their most special gift or gifts from God!
Mommy's Dream Team came into our lives when we needed them the most! The first weeks of our newborn's life were wonderful and overwhelming. Having Rachel and Sarah from Mommy's Dream Team was not only having caring hands--they taught us how to care for and soothe our baby. And they did so in a non-judgmental, supportive way! Mommy's Dream Team is a dream and we are so grateful for them.
Just saw your ad in Indian hill connection and wanted to drop you a note. My twins will be 16 in November and I would not have made it if it weren't for April and Becky. They were so wonderful. Glad to see you are still in business. Please tell them hello.

Thank you Mommy's Dream Team for the wonderful sessions we enjoyed with you for the newborn skills class! My husband and I found the sessions very informative and we now feel setup for success. We appreciated your flexibility to have the meetings by Skype since we live in New Hampshire. The team member was professional, supportive and also very kind to review our baby registry and make suggestions. I would recommend your services to any parents!
I reached out to Rachel after my 5 month old was still waking up every 45 minutes-2 hours every night. I had read every "get your baby to sleep through the night" book, but nothing was working. I work night shift and my husband works day shift, so it was hard to apply the advice from the books to our family. Once I did the Skype sleep consulting with Rachel, she was able to create a plan for our family. We had Skype sessions weekly. I was also able to instant message her whenever I had any questions, and she would email an action plan each week. The action plan was great because I could print it out for my husband and sitter, so everyone was on the same page. My 6 month old is now so close to sleeping all the way through the night. We've had some 8-9 hour stretches already! I would highly recommend the Skype sleep consulting. Rachel is very flexible with scheduling and always there to answer any questions. Thank you.
Rachel has been a true gift for our family. Having her truly got me through those first few weeks and I think was a key to successfully nursing my twins! On top of that, my husband was able to get uninterrupted sleep for work!
"The classes were a lot of fun, and it was refreshing to be around those who have been or are going through the same thing we are. Becca is energetic and willing to answer any questions, big or small, that you may have. It is a great starting point for any individual or couple who may be feeling overwhelmed from all of the information and well-intended "advice" from friends, family, and the internet. The classes are broken down nicely, and all are able to be referenced throughout your pregnancy and days with a newborn by looking in the binder or emailing/calling anyone from Mommy's Dream Team, who are always ready to answer any question or concern you may have!"

"As this was my wife and I's first pregnancy, we felt like there were about a million things we needed to learn in a relatively short period of time. This class not only helped us learn a lot of important information on pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the first weeks of our baby's life, it also made parenthood feel like something we could handle- that it's something we're equipped and naturally wired for."
"Becca was a very knowledgeable teacher and used real life experience as well as situations to teach the class which made it more relatable. The classes were the perfect length for very pregnant women and it wasn't overwhelming. She was also willing to be contacted outside of class time to answer questions that I didn't think of during class. She also talked about after labor and the importance of recovery which is something no other class I've taken talked about and is very important. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is pregnant.
"Mommy’s Dream Team was so much more than a good night’s sleep! We were fortunate to have Rachel as our night nanny when we welcomed our baby girl a month early. As first time parents, we read countless books to prepare, but had little to no experience with babies and we lacked the confidence upon bringing our newborn home from the hospital. Not only did Rachel give us the rest we so desperately needed, but her expertise was invaluable. She counseled us on everything from breastfeeding to bathing to sleeping. No question too big or too small, her suggestions were always spot-on. In addition to being our trusted advisor, her incredible warmth and compassion really put us at ease. It is so clear that Rachel loves babies and is passionate about what she does.
We are most grateful for the sleep counseling we received. Thanks to Rachel’s suggestions, we implemented good sleeping habits from the beginning and a flexible nursing schedule to help naturally establish her sleep-wake cycles. Our daughter took to this very well and began sleeping through the night consistently at 11 weeks. We were pinching ourselves!
Rachel and MDT, we feel so grateful for your partnership during this amazing experience and you can count on our repeat business in the future!"

My husband and I owe MDT a huge hug! Our little one was never a sleeper the moment she took her first breath in this world. We had been struggling for months trying to get her to sleep in her own bed, in her own room. Naps were a joke and nights were just plain misery. We were finally at wits end after 8 months of feeling like zombies when we reluctantly had to start co-sleeping with her just to try to get some sleep so that we were able to function at work. That 'situation' lasted about 2 months. I could no longer stand sleeping at the edge of the bed like a stiff pencil enduring endless kicks and pokes from her. We hired MDT for about 6 nights in a row just shy of her 1 year birthday and it was honestly one of the best investments I have ever made! Rachel and Danielle were awesome helping us plan out a nighttime and daytime routine and regain confidence in our parenting skills. Their nighttime nannies that helped us for those 6 nights were angels! It took only 2 nights I think to get her used to this new routine with their help. Since that time (it's been several weeks now) she continues to sleep through the night, uninterrupted 10-13 hours! And naps are a breeze. I don't know who this child is! And my husband and I have rediscovered sleep as well and hence our sanity.
Our experience with MDT was wonderful. I recommend their services to everyone with a little one or one on the way. I only wish I knew about them sooner....I will definitely be calling them the second time around!
I have had a very positive experience with Mommy's Dream Team and recommend them to everyone I talk to with young children. We have used their babysitting board service and have had wonderful sitters care for our boys. I have always been skeptical about using new people, but my worries were put to rest after using MDT. They have been extremely professional, timely, and most importantly the kids have loved them! I love that we can have a last-minute need for a sitter and will get a response within an hour. Thank you so much, Mommy's Dream Team!
