Hi Mia, Bec, and Elizabeth,
Every feed was lasting for at least forty five minutes, thirty minutes of that would be a fight. I knew it wasn’t working, I knew I needed to do something else, but I didn’t know what, or how. This combined with some old issues that had reared their head resulted in a lovely diagnosis of post-natal depression.
Then, you released ‘The Gift of Sleep’. I never thought that controlled comforting was something I would do, until I tried it. My little girl fell asleep within half an hour that first night, and slept until 6 the next morning. She has only woken up twice during the night over the last week. For the last three days there isn’t even grizzling before she falls asleep. She babbles to herself for about two minutes and then is asleep. It’s amazing!
We are both more rested. We are both more relaxed. My hubby is no longer on tenterhooks wondering when I will snap/melt down next. I now enjoy my little girl again.
I can’t believe how much my life has changed in just a week. I honestly can’t express just how thankful I am. I don’t know how I would have survived another night with no sleep. You’ve saved my family.
Thank you, I owe you more than you’ll ever know.
