Astrid - 5 Months
"The internet is full of parents who have opinions on what makes a successful sleeping baby and nursery setup, but they completely contradict one another.
It is frustrating, and when you're in the thick of this chaos, you will try everything, which means nothing works.
We put ourselves through so much trying to solve our little girl's sleep issues and just assumed it was the four-month sleep regression.
After weeks of her only napping for 10-30 minutes, waking up screaming after 30 minutes at bedtime, needing to feed to sleep, and having complete meltdowns for nap and sleep time, we decided to bring in a professional.
It was so relieving to have a professional weed out the misinformation and set us up with clear guides for us as parents to follow.
In one night, our daughter stopped needing night feeds and, within just a couple of nights, slept through the night (meaning, she was able to put herself back to sleep).
In a few days, she was getting better, fuller naps during the day. Honestly, after the first week, we just t had situation-specific questions we needed guidance for; otherwise, our baby was a sleeping superstar at just five months old!
When I have told family and friends we hired a sleep consultant, many didn't know it was an option. Those who have littles are now considering this option if their little needs that helping hand.
Don't be afraid to get help. It may seem like something you as the parent should just be able to solve, but you don't need to do this alone.
Give yourself the relief and let someone else guide you."
