I’’ve been meaning to send you this email for a while now. We were having a lot of trouble with our daughter with regard to her sleeping. We had to sit beside her cot for up to an hour each night trying to get her to sleep and then she’d wake 3 or 4 times during the night. We were exhausted.
Within about 3 weeks we could leave her in her cot by herself to fall asleep – we finally got our evenings back! She also began sleeping through the night, and she has been sleeping so well ever since.
About 2 weeks into lockdown, at the start of April, I bought your book All About The Baby Sleep Solution. Our daughter was 21 months old at the time. We had a solid bedtime routine in place already but we made some changes in accordance to your suggested plan. We brought her bedtime forward an hour, we moved her milk bottle to an hour before bedtime, and we stuck to getting her up in the mornings by 7:30am every morning. Within about 3 weeks we could leave her in her cot by herself to fall asleep – we finally got our evenings back! She also began sleeping through the night, and she has been sleeping so well ever since.
On Monday with the restrictions lifted, I brought her down to Wexford and I was anxious about whether she’d continue her great sleeping routine in a new cot and a new room but she has been absolutely fine!
I just want to say thank you so much for saving her sleep, and therefore saving ours! It’s made such a positive difference to our lives. I’ll be recommending your book to every one of my friends that also needs help in this area.
