From around 8 weeks old baby Lily was sleeping through the night and her parents were counting themselves lucky that they were all enjoying full nights sleep from such an early age. But when Lily reached about 6 months old then her sleep started to change and they were all struggling to get any rest. With the help of our Sleep Success: 6-9 month course, Lily and her parents were soon back on track.
Becoming a first time mum can be challenging at the best of times. When baby Lily arrived during lockdown 2020 her mum, Sarah, found it a little harder than expected without physical help from friend and family.
Then from just 8 weeks old, Lily started to sleep through the night and her parents, Sarah and Matt, were delighted to be enjoying unexpected restful nights.
But when Lily reached 6 months old her sleep patterns changed. It was harder to settle Lily to sleep, sometimes taking hours, and naps were shorter and less predictable.
Lily’s parents were trying to get Lily’s sleep back on track and eventually started to co-sleep as a way to help Lily settle, but found Lily was only sleeping a little better, Sarah was finding it hard to sleep and Matt had moved into another room.
Sarah and Matt decided that their current sleep situation wasn’t sustainable for them and felt it was time to try to make some changes. Though initially hesitant, Sarah decided to try our online Sleep Success course.
Sarah spent some time digesting the course material and thought she would set aside a few weeks to start putting a new routine in place with Lily.
However, Lily surprised her parents with how quickly she adapted and they started to see improvements in her sleep soon after putting some changes in place.
