Eva was 16 months old when her parents decided the time was right to make changes to their family’s sleep. Eva was waking multiple times during the night and previous methods of settling her were no longer helping. With the help of our 10-18 month Sleep Success course, Eva (and Mum, Laura!) are now enjoying much more restful nights and settled sleep.
Eva had always woken frequently through the night and was now waking more often, for longer periods and struggling to return to sleep when her parents tried to settle her.
After 16 months of broken sleep, tiredness was taking its toll, so Laura started to look for guidance on how to get their sleep on track. After following our free advice for a while, Laura decided that the Sleep Success course was the next step for them. Both Eva’s parents worked through the course as a team and started to feel more confident that they could help Eva sleep better.
After digesting the content in the course, Eva’s parents made some decisions about what changes they wanted to make and formed their sleep plan. Every baby and family is different and will stop night feeds at a time that is right for them. Laura felt the time was right to see if Eva was ready to drop her last night feed.
The next stage of Eva’s sleep plan involved changing what time Eva started her day and making tweaks to her daily routine.
These small changes made a big difference to Laura and Eva’s days together.
Laura and her husband then felt ready to make changes to how they approached Eva’s bedtime and nighttime sleep. Up until this point, Laura hadn’t tried to make changes to how Eva fell asleep and felt a bit nervous about trying a new approach.
After seeing how well Eva had responded to changes in her daytime routine, they decided it was time to put the rest of their sleep plan in place.
After a couple of weeks, Eva was enjoying her new bedtime routine and settling to sleep consistently well. And her parents were finding themselves able to enjoy spending time in the evening together, knowing they had a restful night ahead of them.
