Just want to say thank you for your book! It’s absolutely magical and I’ve only been following your guides for less than a week. I have a 5.5 month old baby boy named S. I know that you don’t recommend “sleep training” before 6 months but we were desperate! S was a cat napper and a very poor one at that. We had somehow fallen into the habit of nursing him to sleep, which meant short naps, frequent wakings, and reversing his feeds so that he ate all night long and only snacked during the day.
We have already managed to teach him to go to sleep without nursing for both naps and bedtimes which is a huge achievement for us! He’s also napping. He started napping on schedule for the correct amount of time the very first day that we started the routine. He sleeps better at night too, waking every 3-4 hours instead of 1-2.
I know it’s still very much a work in progress but I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful, magical book!!! I’ve been telling all the moms I know about our success so far.
Your book made the process seem far less daunting than other sleep guides and books that I have read, which made it much easier to start the learning process.
Tonight my husband is going to be able to put S to bed and I never thought that I would have a bedtime off.
Thanks again from a very happy Mommy!
