At 11 months old, Annabelle’s parents were struggling with breastfeeding and rocking her to sleep for every nap, bedtime and multiple wake-ups in the night. With the help of our 10-18 month Sleep Success course, Annabelle now sleeps all night and the whole family is so much happier.
Annabelle had always struggled with her sleep, even when she was a newborn. When she was just 2 weeks old parents, Suzy and Christian, found out Annabelle was suffering from acid reflux which really affected her ability to sleep.
A diagnosis of a cow’s milk protein and egg allergy were diagnosed soon after.
Fast forward a few months and, with a return to work looming, Annabelle’s parents felt it was time to make a change:
Every baby is different, and some will feed at night much longer than others, but Suzy felt the time was right for Annabelle to drop her night feeds.
Making changes to how your little one sleeps can feel like a daunting task – getting started can sometimes be the hardest part. Nerves about crying and making the right decisions for your baby can make it feel overwhelming – our Sleep Success courses are designed to empower you to make informed choices for your baby.
Our methods aren’t a one size fits all approach, families can take what they learn from the courses and put changes in place at their own pace and adapt the approach to suit them. This is what Suzy and Christian did…
Some families have immediate success on night one of their new plan, for others there are a few tweaks to be made along the way – Suzy was able to confidently make changes to her approach to suit Annabelle based on what she learned:
You are the expert on your baby, your gut instinct can guide you on what your baby needs.
Using the course information as a guide over the coming few weeks and months, Suzy and Christian were able to adapt their approach and routine to keep up with Annabelle’s developing sleep needs. They achieved settled nights, solid predictable naps and also confidently navigated the transition from two naps to one when Annabelle showed signs she was ready.
What did the course help Suzy and Christian learn? Suzy told us:
Suzy had tracked Annabelle’s sleep patterns for weeks before starting the course, and continued to do so long afterwards. She shared her sleep logs with us to show just how much Annabelle’s sleep patterns had changed for the better.
