What an amazing turnaround it’s been for our family. It’s been 8 months in and we have read several books, subscribed to various baby sleep programs, and tried out various options to help us with our baby’s sleep problems. We spent $$$ month after month trying to help our bub to sleep through the night and get those day naps in place. We didn’t have major success with the methods we tried, and ended up rocking our bub to sleep for the most of it. It was so tiring for us as sometimes we would find ourselves rocking bub for about an hour, and sometimes bub would sleep for 10 mins and just wake up and then we would start rocking again. Some off-days are good and we have good nights, and then we think we have finally achieved success, but then we find ourselves back to square one the very next night.
We were sleep deprived, frustrated, and mostly afraid if our bub was getting sufficient sleep throughout the night and during the day because of her sleep problems. Our paediatrician would say, “Oh, bub will somehow find the sleep they need” or “just feed them again”. Maybe that’s true, but as parents, we felt that our bub didn’t seem rested after a nap/sleep.
“Everything she said made absolute sense”
So we started looking for other options and we were lucky to stumble upon Jennifer’s profile. As parents, it’s not easy to put your trust in someone you don’t know for anything regarding your baby and her sleep problems. All the questions came into our mind. Will she use a common settling method and make our baby cry for hours? Is self-settling harmful for our bub? Are these reviews too good to be true? I doubt if this will work for us because we have tried all these things already!
We had a chat with Jen and spoke to her about our concerns, then we booked in for a consultation over the phone. Everything she said made absolute sense and the little things she told us to try had an immediate impact.
Looking through Jen’s experience, knowledge, and history, it felt like she was the perfect person to help us through the problems we were having. We booked in for the 3 nights program. Jennifer arrived on/before time on all three days to help us out, and she customised a program for us where she started with us 7 days before the night stay because we wanted to be as gentle as possible with our bub. This helped setup bub for an easier transition to the settling process.
Jennifer is such a friendly and empathetic person that our family immediately connected with her, and she shared with us a bulk load of knowledge that was not only sleep-specific but was helpful for other developments of our bub. We immediately realised the biggest fault that we were making was not realizing bub’s tired signs. This is why we have been rocking bub for hours, as bub was not sleepy to even start with!!!
“We wish Jen came to our lives sooner!”
The first day was amazing, Jen sat with us through everything we did, and helped us understand so many things that we took for granted. We put bub down to sleep, and within a total of 15 mins on an off low crying, bub self settled and slept. We actually ended up waking our bub at 6:30 in the morning! Which was a huge surprise and turnaround for us.
Jen shared secrets on how to get bub’s day time naps going and they worked for us on the very first day. By day 2 and 3, bub was sleeping through the night with no awakes and getting the daytime naps as well. The after support is great as Jen has been supporting us throughout to make sure everything stays in place. Jen has been there to help us through bubs’ teething phases and how to handle such situations.
It’s been a few weeks now and we are now well rested parents with a well rested and happy bub who sleeps through the night without any wakes and has very good day time naps. And in our case, all of this was achieved in the first two nights and it’s been a few weeks now and nothing has changed! Bye-bye baby sleep problems!
Also, she is a great conversationalist and we enjoyed her company during her stay with us. We wish Jen came to our lives sooner, but as the saying goes better NOW! (late) than never!. Thank you Jen for all your help and we wish you a healthy and happy life!
