Ellie – 7 Months
“When my little one was newborn, I said I would never do sleep training with her because I never wanted to not respond when she cried out to me.
Our daughter reached a point where her daytime sleep did not exist because she was so distracted by her surroundings - she was miserable and it made all of us miserable!
We knew that the habits we had formed around her sleep were no longer sustainable and that we needed to make a change!
We decided to hire a sleep consultant because it gave us comfort to have a guideline and parameters to follow along with and someone to check in with along the sleep training journey. We were overwhelmed by all the information and different methods of sleep training out there and knowing that all babies are different, we did not want to wing it with a cookie cutter method.
Erin is wonderful to work with! We felt comfortable immediately! She is understanding and not judgemental about the sleep habits that we had in place and works with you at your comfort level to get everyone sleeping effectively! She keeps communication open throughout the process and is available for questions along the way!
As soon as we started sleep training with Erin, she took to it well, and there much less tears involved than we had prepared ourselves for! We have a very stubborn little girl and it became very clear, very quickly that she was ready for sleep training and we are so happy with the results!
We had some travel booked prior to starting and Erin gave us some great travel tips and helped us work through the days away to help our daughter get through these days smoothly. She did great!
We started out with a 7-month-old who was sleeping well at night but with multiple night waking’s, but never napped independently - naps only took place while nursing or in her car seat. Within days she was sleeping completely through the night and napping in her crib during the day - this gave us 2 full weeks to focus on improving her daytime sleep and at the end of the 3 weeks she is effectively napping twice a day (up to 4 hours a day)!
Our daughter is sleeping completely independently for 14-16 hours a day! She is happier when she is awake and goes to sleep with no tears at bedtime and at nap time! We now have a happy and well-rested baby girl (and a happy well-rested mama!)!!
