At Cave Babies, my philosophy is based on creating positive sleep associations for your child.

I have a simple goal with Cave Babies; support new parents and build a community of strong relationships for parents through sleep education.
We found Trista's approach to be caring, genuine, and persuasive enough that we were committed to the plan from the outset, with confidence that we could be guided through a difficult time. The payoff has been immense, and our home is now much happier, with a baby that sleeps through the night without difficulty. This would simply not be the case without Trista's detailed plan and careful followup, that even led us through regular construction noise at the house. We couldn't be happier with the service and outcome, and highly recommend (occasionally insist) that others consider cave babies services. Thanks Trista!
I met Trista a couple of times and talked to her at a couple events this fall about my 7 month old daughters sleep. I was so skeptical that anything would change her sleep because I feel like I tried everything. My husband and I finally decided that it was worth a try because we were so exhausted by the end of the day and it was hard to get through. Within 2 days there was a huge change with her napping. She was sleeping longer for her naps, it was no longer 20 minute cat naps throughout the day which made her less cranky and clingy. And she was sleeping through the night in 2 weeks. We never thought it was going to happen, or this quickly. I felt like I finally had a routine and my days became predictable. I refer all my friends to Cave Babies.
I heard about Cave Babies from my friend’s mom and I was so excited to find some help. Our 10 month old was up every 2 hours at night for a bottle and needed to be held for all of his naps. I will be going back to work in a couple of months and I was so scared I wouldn’t be able to because I was so tired. Trista was so supportive and really listened to what I needed and never asked me to do something I wasn’t comfortable doing. She really helped me and my husband get through what we thought was a never ending battle of sleep. It has only been 4 weeks, but I can’t even believe we functioned on such little sleep! Trista gave us a plan that worked and it worked so quickly. We are so happy and grateful that we worked with Cave Babies.
If you are thinking about hiring Trista for your baby sleep… DO IT!!! This was the best decision I have made and well worth every penny. Trista was so knowledgeable, helpful, supportive and so quick to respond. She had my 5 month old on a sleep schedule within days, it was amazing! We had an extremely colicky baby right from day 1 and sleep was always a struggle. We felt comfortable that the colic was over and now we were just left with sleep issues. I was so stressed about sleep and I had no idea where to start. I rocked, nursed, held, bounced and drove him around… pretty much anything to get him to sleep. Trista sat down with us and went through our whole day and we made some changes immediately. My husband talks about Trista all the time to his friends who are having trouble with their child’s sleep. We are forever grateful we met Trista with Cave Babies.
Thank you Trista!!! You were such a supportive sleep consultant and helped me every step of the way. I never thought I was going to get a good nights’ rest again but you helped our entire family. You were available anytime I needed you and helped me throughout this whole process. You do amazing work for parents of Saskatoon. I wish I had not waited so long to use your services.
We were so exhausted, going into the room to give Jason the soother 5 or more times a night plus a bottle 3 or 4 times a night. Jason was 6 months when we attempted the Ferber method based on advice from friends. By the fourth night we had to stop because the crying lasted hours and was just unbearable. Trista quickly assessed our family’s situation, developed a plan, and gave us the confidence to be able to meet Jason’s sleep needs and understand his sleep problems. We were committed to making changes and within a few days we saw a huge improvement. We got into a good routine and Jason was not getting up in the night anymore except for one bottle and we didn’t have to struggle to get him to go to sleep for naps either. We are so happy we did sleep training with Trista.
Every parent should hire Trista! We had no idea what to do with our kids’ sleep. We had awful bedtime battles, getting up numerous times a night and a cranky toddler and baby. Dana, our 3 year old fought bedtime and used every stalling tactic in the book. We ended up letting her come into bed with us most nights. And Claire, our 8 month old, was up 5 or 6 times a night wanting to be rocked or nursed back to sleep. It was a very desperate time for us. We worked with Trista and in such a short time we had our evenings back and didn’t need to get up at night anymore. Both of our girls are happy and well rested. We loved Trista’s approach to working with children. You listened to our concerns and helped us focus on this process. We would refer Trista with Cave Babies to any parent.
Thank you so much Trista for helping get our 3 year old twins sleeping through the night. It took both of us parents to get the girls to bed every night and almost an hour of fighting. Words cannot express the impact you have had on our lives. Everyone is sleeping and happy and healthy and the girls are finally going to bed, in their own bed, at 8pm. You are great to work with and answered all of our questions and helped us through this process. We could not have done it without you!!!
Need help with a baby or toddler who is having trouble sleeping or is not really sleeping/napping at all you NEED to contact Trista Cave at Cave Babies. This is NOT the cry it out method of sleep training and it works!
My husband and I were skeptical that it would work. We were not on board to use the cry it out method and I was so totally exhausted that I had to do something. The investment seemed like a lot at the time but it's not.
My short notes:
- 1 yr old was not sleeping or napping
- Up 6-10 times a night
- He relied on a soother
- Was being rocked/swayed to sleep
- Longest stretch of sleep was 3-4hr max
-Naps only totaled 15-30 minutes, an hour on a great day
4 weeks later with NO crying it out and our son sleeps through the night and has 2 naps in the day totaling 2-2.5hr.
He was sleeping 8hr stretches in 7 days and napping longer.
No more night feeding
Just lay him down at nap/bed time and he's asleep in 2 minutes
He was also at daycare and he sleeps there now too!
Words cannot describe how happy we are that we finally decided to help get our son the sleep he needed (and that I needed to). It takes dedication and persistence but if I knew that he would sleep like this I would have done this 6 months ago!
Thank you Cave Babies! Best sleep consultant in Saskatchewan. I never thought my husband and I were going to get a good nights rest again. We were so desperate and you were so sweet and kind with us. Our 13 month old ruled the house and it took hours to get her bed every night and we gave up naps ages ago. But she’s now a happy and well rested little girl whose not fussing all the time. I wish I called you sooner. Your approach is so hands on and keeps the childs’ best interest at heart the whole time. I was able to hold and comfort my baby throughout this process and that was very important to me.
