“I am the mother of a beautiful little boy. He was starting to sleep pretty good around 3 months, then at 4 months he got a cold and of course you do all you can to comfort them. That is when I started rocking him to sleep and every time he woke at night. A good night was 3 times, a bad night was 7. I spent a lot of time sleeping in the rocker. During the day he would only sleep in his swing, sometimes the stroller or car seat if I was lucky! I knew that sleep deprivation was part of being a new mom, but I didn’t think it was supposed to be like this. I had read so many sleep books, all with wonderful ideas but I didn’t know where to start. So many other moms I talked to swore by the “cry it out”, but to me it wasn’t an option. I was turning into a grouchy, moody person that no one wanted to be around. I would snap and cry for no reason, which was not fair to either my son or husband. Our little guy wasn’t getting enough sleep and was grouchy too. I just chalked it up to teething.
I was so close to trying the “cry it out” method when I saw that Amanda was putting on a talk in Regina. For some reason I was drawn to the idea that she could help. I set up a consultation and immediately I knew that she could help, and this would work. I knew it was possible, I just needed someone to point me in the right direction. My husband thought I was crazy, but he was supportive. He defiantly now thinks I wasn’t crazy at all. The First night we had one wake up, the second none! My little boy sleeps 12 hours a night with two naps a day. He is sleeping roughly 14-15 hours a day! I feel I am a much better mom and wife. And I have a much happier little boy. Amanda has been very supportive and helped me work through changes that came up along the way.
I honestly was a little embarrassed that I needed help, but now everyone I talk to I tell how wonderful she is and how well her program has worked for us. I love that we are teaching our little man great sleep skills that he will have for the rest of his life! Thank you Amanda!”
