1 Year later
It’s been a year since I started The Baby Concierge so I thought no more appropriate time than now to look back and reflect on the year with this new endeavor.
Firstly, thank you so much to everyone who follows and reads and takes the time to post your encouraging words. It’s really heartwarming to see that something I was working hard at, was in some way a positive influence.
A public thank you to my husband and mom for being the editors-in-chief. And to my mother-in-law for commenting on every single post with words of encouragement.
I know my posts have slowed down a lot, life got in the way, but I do plan to continue!
In the past year, I wrote 33 posts. I started with posts about sleep training and then I also did a parenting series. I’ve touched upon traveling, postpartum body and baby-led-weaning. If you have a question or a topic you want me to blog about you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The blog has 22,130 views and 10,406 visitors. I know that in the blogging world that is not a lot, but I’m still excited about it!
My blog led to doing some sleep consulting. Over the past year I ‘consulted’ with 89 people. I hope in some way I was able to help them through what can be a difficult and tired time. It was very gratifying for me to get positive feedback. I am excited to share a few of the testimonials.
“Daniella is absolutely amazing. I was having a lot of difficulty putting my son to sleep at night and I was literally pulling my hair out. He would cry on and off from 7 pm- 10 pm, on a good night, until he eventually passed out sometimes not until 1 am! Daniella was so amazing and supportive. She was so patient and let me email her sometimes 10 times a day. Her advice was so helpful and she really helped guide me to 1- get my baby on a day schedule 2- teach my baby to learn how to put himself to sleep and 3- learn to take solid day naps.I am so grateful for all her time, patience and understanding.”
“The Baby Concierge has been an amazing resource for me, a Mom of 2 young kids. The Baby Concierge responds to questions quickly and provides sound and practical advice. Her blog posts are relatable, entertaining and very informative! The Baby Concierge is my one stop baby information shop, and the reason I have been able to sleep for the past year!”
“I’m writing this as we are still working on helping my daughter develop her sleep habits and while we’re still getting there, Daniella continues to provide constant reassurance and instills confidence in my abilities as a new mother. I’ve realized that I need to believe my daughter can do this before I begin this process, which is an extremely difficult thing for a first time mom to do, but Daniella helped me develop that belief. Her patience with my own anxieties, listening to my nightly recaps, providing suggestions, and frequently checking in have been extremely helpful. More importantly, she always took my personal feelings and living situation into account when suggesting ideas and problem solving with me, which I greatly appreciated. While this is a challenging process, Daniella makes it feel manageable and worth it. I can’t thank her enough!”
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing tips and tricks you gave to me on sleep training my son, and dealing with my daughter and her feelings on her new baby brother. There is a massive improve in her behaviour, and she is definitely more comfortable and happy with the baby. I finally feel normal again now that my son sleeps through most of the night! Really can’t thank you enough, and you should be able to continue to make a difference in the lives of many new mothers.”
With that, happy birthday to The Baby Concierge!
