Has anybody tried the Baby-Love Programme?
When Jamie turned 2 months he started sleeping through the night… until I had to go back to work and he had to start daycare. That disrupted his routine and he started waking up in the night again, after a while he started taking a night feed again, then teething started and the poor little guy had a rough time cutting 10 teeth in about 5 or 6 months, he was ill a couple of times, one hospital stay and everything snowballed so that me and hubby hasn’t had a decent night’s rest in a couple of months.
After searching for sleep training professionals I came across the Baby-Love programme. According to them they take a very holistic approach to the baby according to his own individual needs, eating routines, daytime routines etc. Once these have been addressed, then the sleep training falls into place. Now I’m very weary of sleep training, I hate it when Jamie cries, I easily start crying myself and initially I thought sleep training was cruel. Until I talked to a friend who tried it and she said her baby was so different when he started sleeping through the night, he was a different little person, much happier. She told me that I mustn’t think of it as getting him to sleep through the night for ME, so that I can sleep, but rather for JAMIE, because he will feel so much better. We often forget that our sleep gets disrupted, but the baby gets just as little sleep through everything, only difference is we don’t get to take any day naps to make up for a rough night!
The lady from Baby-Love assured me that the difference is that the sleep training is done in a loving, caring environment and the routines are pretty easy to follow. I still have my doubts about it and haven’t made up my mind yet, although hubby has approved it and I’ve read all the success stories on their website.
Now I want to know, have you tried it or what’s your opinion on it?
All I want is for Jamie to always sleep as peaceful as he is sleeping here.
